The NBA Playoffs will turn up tonight as game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals between the Miami Heat & Indiana will get underway. The series kicks off down in Miami and is expected to be a very even, highly competitive matchup. Miami is coming off a series win against the depleted Chicago Bulls, while the Pacers were able to knock off the New York Knicks in impressive fashion.
The thing that you can undoubtedly expect this series is very physical games that will be close and go down to the wire. Will LeBron be able to carry the Heat past Indy with a less than stellar D Wade or will the Pacers be able to shock the world. Tune in tonight at 8:30 EST on TNT to find out.
*UPDATE* Heat 103 | Pacers 102 | Heat Lead Series 1-0

Ciara and Nicki Minaj do it for all the ladies of the world on their latest release, “I’m Out.” Behind a rapid-fire verse from Nicki to kick off the track, Ciara does her thing and we can certainly see this track doing damage on the radio airwaves.

Oh yeah, CiCi and Nicki, can we please get a sexy video for this ASAP? Thanks in advance.
Terrible news out of the Bay Area today, as it is being reported that San Francisco 49er’s wideout Michael Crabtree has torn his achilles. They are not sure how long this injury will sideline Crabtree but are worried it could end his season. That would be a huge blow to a 49er’s team that is trying to get back to the Super Bowl this season, and who many believe are the favorites. Without Crabtree their receivers corps lacks a true deep threat.
Stay tuned for more details in the coming days.

Jay-Z made another huge splash in the sports world today, by signing New York Jets quarterback Geno Smith. Smith now becomes the second NFL player under Hov’s Roc Nation Sports imprint, joining New York Giants receiver Victor Cruz. This is an important move for Jay (to be able to attract the next generation of stars in sports), as he recently also signed the very popular women’s basketball player Skylar Diggins.
Who do you think Hov will lock up next?
For the 2nd time in 3 years the Cleveland Cavaliers have won the NBA Draft Lottery. Coming into the night they had the 3rd best odds of taking home the top honor. With the number 1 overall selection they will be able to build around a good young nucleus that is centered around Kyrie Irving. Selecting 2nd will be the Orlando Magic, who had the best shot of winning the spot based on percentages. The Washington Wizards were the real surprise of the night moving into the top 3.
Check out the full order after the jump.

Clinton Sparks is ready to invade your radio waves with his latest single “Gold Rush” featuring 2 Chainz, D.A. & Macklemore. This cut features a fun high tempo beat and a very catching hook that pulls you into the song. Add in some solid verses from Macklemore & Dos Chainz and we have no real complaints with this.

In a move that surprises nobody, the Los Angeles Clippers have declined to offer head coach Vinny Del Negro a new contract. This comes after a terribly disappointing first round exit in the playoffs in a year with such high expectations. This year they made huge steps in the regular season winning their first ever Pacific Division title, but again fell incredibly short of their long term postseason goals.
The remained of this off-season is filled with questions for the Clippers, as their sole focus now targets on keeping Chris Paul. Rumors have been swirling that the superstar is unhappy and may check his options in free agency, which begins in July. No word on what coaches the Clippers will look at but it is guaranteed they will factor in which hire will make Paul the most happy.
The return of Goodie Mob is officially in full swing as today they release their first single “Special Education” featuring Janelle Monae. This track is not typical in any sense but we can absolutely fuck with it’s vibe, and your lying to yourself if you say Janelle didn’t kill this hook. Be on the lookout for their new album, Age Against The Machine, to drop on August 27.
We first heard this new Beyonce track during her recent Pepsi commercial and now we get the full version. This song will undoubtedly send the Bey Hive into a frenzy and we really can’t blame them as this song is very catchy. This is just the kind of up-tempo track that Bey wants on the radio heading into the summer.
