REPORT: Suns Forward Michael Beasley Under Investigation! [KingpinTV*net]

Suns forward Michael Beasley is the subject of an investigation regarding an alleged sexual assault, according to police in Scottsdale, Ariz.

ABC15.com reports that the alleged assault took place on Jan. 13.

“At this point we can only say the investigation is ongoing,” said David Pubins, Scottsdale police spokesman. “We are interviewing those involved and processing any physical evidence we may have to try and determine if criminal charges are appropriate.”

KTAR also reported the investigation.

This is the second time during Beasley’s tenure in Phoenix that he has found himself in hot water. Word broke in February that Beasley was cited on Jan. 25 for multiple driving violations for driving 71 mph in a 45-mph zone at 1:10 a.m. in a Mercedes that did not have a license plate. Beasley was driving on a suspended license and a loaded gun was found in the vehicle. Suns management did not discipline Beasley after the incident.

It has been a long and rocky road since Beasley was the No. 2 pick in the 2008 draft after earning Big 12 Player of the Year honors during his one season at Kansas State. Before playing his first game for the Heat, Beasley was fined $50,000 for his role in a marijuana-related incident at the Rookie Transition Program. He spent time in a substance abuse treatment center in 2009 before the Heat traded him to the Timberwolves after just two seasons.

Upon acquiring Beasley, then Timberwolves president David Kahn called him ”a very young and immature kid who smoked too much marijuana” before he arrived in Minnesota. Beasley was later pulled over for speeding and cited for marijuana possession by Minnesota police during the 2011 lockout. He also shoved a fan in the face during a lockout exhibition game in New York and launched a lawsuit against his former AAU coach, alleging that he had received improper benefits during his one season at Kansas State.

Police confirmed the investigation within hours of the Suns’ announcing the hiring of Celtics assistant general manager Ryan McDonough as their new GM.

Beasley, 24, signed a three-year, $18 million contract with the Suns last summer, although the final season is only partially guaranteed. He averaged 10.1 points, 3.8 rebounds and 1.5 assists while shooting 40.5 percent for the Suns, who finished 25-57, the worst record in the Western Conference.

NEWS: Javaris Crittenton Officially Indicted On Murder Charges! [KingpinTV*net]

From humble beginnings as a child in Atlanta Georgia, to starring at Georgia Tech & making it to the NBA, Javaris Crittenton seemed destined to make it big. Things have changed for the former Georgia State “Mr Basketball” and member of “Future Business Leaders of America”

Crittenton was indicted on murder charges along with his cousin in a case officials call a gang-related shooting that took place Atlanta in 2011.

No trial date has been set.

Crittenton, 25, and Douglas Gamble heard of 12-count indictment in Atlanta’s Fulton County District Court. Officers allege Crittenton fired a gun that killed a mother of two, Julian Jones, who was walking in a group of people. Officials suspect the incident was retaliatory, citing Crittenton as the victim of a robbery during which he had $50,000 of jewelry stolen.

Crittenton’s last stint in the NBA was with the Charlotte Bobcats. He was drafted in the first round of the 2007 draft by the Los Angeles Lakers and played for the Memphis Grizzlies and Washington Wizards.

He is well known for a Christmas Eve 2009 incident in which he and teammate Gilbert Arenas drew guns on each other in the Wizards’ locker room during an argument over gambling debts

UPDATE: Chief Keef Sentencing and More Legal Woes! [KingpinTV*net]

 

It’s official: 17-year-old Chicago rapper Chief Keef is heading to jail over violating the terms of his parole. Keef was sentenced to 60 days of juvenile detention for his probation violation stemming from pointing a gun at a police officer.

And now this:

According to TMZ, 17-year-old rapper Chief Keef is already getting a head start on his baby mama drama — in fact, he’s so far ahead of the game … he allegedly impregnated a girl who’s STILL IN MIDDLE SCHOOL … and now, she’s suing for child support.

The girl filed the petition for child support in Chicago, claiming Keef — real name Keith Cozart — fathered a baby daughter with her back in 2011.

The girl’s exact age is unclear, but according to the docs, she currently attends a Chicago middle school — meaning she was .. at MOST … in 8th grade when she conceived the child, but could have been in 6th grade.

Cozart — who has since worked with Kanye West, Young Jeezy, and Rick Ross — was 15 at the time.

In Illinois, it is considered a misdemeanor for two people under the age of 17 to have sex … even if they’re in a consensual relationship. When both parties are between 9 and 17 years old, the older person commits a crime called “criminal sexual abuse.”

Punishment for the crime includes a max sentence of one year in jail … and a requirement to register as a sex offender for ten years — but in reality, these cases are almost never prosecuted.

The most likely scenario in which Keef would face a judge is if the girl’s parents press charges — but if that hasn’t already happened, it probably won’t.

The girl is suing Keef for an undisclosed amount of child support, including health insurance and other medical expenses. Calls to both Keef’s people and the girl’s family were not returned.

NEWS: Is Dwight Howard The New Shawn Kemp? [KingpinTV*net]

The NBA has a rich history of great players. It also has a great record of players having out of wedlock children. Now there is nothing wrong with having children like this. Marriage isn’t for everyone, but some NBA players take it to the extreme. The Question must be asked. Is Dwight Howard the new Shawn Kemp?

Lets take a look at Shawn Kemp.

Back in the 90’s the “reign man” was a beast putting dudes on posters everywhere. Kemp posted per game averages of 23.3 points on 55% shooting from the field, 10.0 rebounds and 2 blocks in the 1995-1996 finals against King MJ and the bulls, but the Sonics lost in six games. Kemp even gave Jordan present:

Kemp is also known for something else. As of 1998, Kemp had fathered at least 7 children. This number is alleged to be even higher, resulting in Kemp being an easy target for commentators’ jokes.

On a brighter note his oldest son, Shawn Kemp Jr., committed to play basketball for Auburn University on November 11, 2009. Shawn Jr, a graduate of Cherokee High School in Canton, Georgia is a 6’9″ 220 pound center. He was named as an alternate in the 2009 McDonald’s High School All-American Classic. Shawn Jr was heavily recruited by Florida, Alabama, Indiana, and Arkansas. Kemp Jr., did not qualify academically and did not play for Auburn during the 2010-11 season. In 2011, Kemp Jr. signed with the University of Washington.

And now on to Mr Howard

Howard much like Kemp has extraordinary athleticism for a NBA big man . He demonstrated this skill in the 2007 Slam Dunk Contest:

As early as December 2007, ESPN writer David Thorpe declared Howard to be the most dominant center in the NBA.

D12 as he is known to his loyal fans also seems to share the same baby making prowess as Mr Kemp.

According to BSO for years it has been known that Dwight has had other children, but the relevance of that information wasn’t important. That changed when information came out that Dwight was seeking sole custody of his son from Royce Reed. Below is a photo of Reed and Howard’s son.

Dwight has a gag order against Royce where she basically can’t say his name in public or that he is the father of her child. When Royce has possibly said anything in violation of that order Dwight has sued her. It is to protect his image, one that has been carefully crafted. According to TMZ one of the reasons he is seeking sole custody is because of Royce’s violation of this order.

Royce claims that the violation should be voided because Dwight has other children and their mothers aren’t subjected to the same type of scrutiny.

Hope Alexa who has a daughter named Jayde for Howard can be seen below.

Hope is from Vancouver and had Jayde December of 2010. She even has a picture of her and Dwight on her refrigerator confirmed by a source who has been in her home.

Tiffany Render, seen below is from Jacksonville and is currently being supported by Howard in Orlando. She also has a daughter Layla that was born in October 2010.

There are also unconfirmed rumors there may be two other women who claim to have children by Howard a woman named Emili in Seminole, FL and another woman of Caribbean descent.  If true that would bring the count close to Shawn Kemp levels.

So, if we are keeping count. That is 3 kids by 3 mothers (2 kids conceived within 3 months) confirmed, 2 more kids by 2 mothers unconfirmed, possible total of 5 kids by 5 different mothers, 1 girl calling him Daddy as late as December 2011 and an upcoming R&B singer as a girlfriend.

So as you can see there are similarities between both Kemp and Howard. Both showed freakish athleticism and baby making ability.

Kobe Bryant is considered the closest thing to Michael Jordan in terms of game and mannerisms. Howard is the second coming of Kemp. A few more championships…….oops I mean babies, will cement D12’s legacy as the NBA’s greatest babymaker.

UPDATE: NBA Investigates Confrontation Between Kendrick Perkins & Zach Randolph! [KingpinTV*net]

As is the NBA’s standard procedure, the league is investigating Wednesday night’s confrontation between Thunder center Kendrick Perkins and Memphis power forward Zach Randolph at Chesapeake Energy Arena.

Both players were ejected with 2:05 remaining in the fourth quarter of the Grizzlies’ 107-97 victory and had an altercation in a hallway near the Thunder locker room after leaving the court. The players were separated by Oklahoma City police officers patrolling the area.

Security officials later said there was no altercation and there would be no investigation, but the league office confirmed Thursday it was looking into the incident to potentially levy fines and/or suspensions for both players.

Afterward in the locker room, Randolph downplayed what transpired. “It wasn’t nothin’,” he said.

Asked what was said on the court, Randolph refused to share details.

The game was nationally televised on ESPN and a courtside microphone picked up what was said.

Perkins: “I’ll meet you by the bus.”

Randolph: “I’ll beat your (expletive).”

Asked Thursday what led to the incident, Perkins said: “Just too much talking. I wasn’t frustrated, but at the same time I have a problem with losing. … You do have to see this team three more times and we can’t be showing no signs of weakness.”

NEWS: Kendrick Perkins and Zach Randolph In Altercation? [KingpinTV*net]

According to CBS Sports, as the Grizzlies knocked off the defending Western Champs Thunder Wednesday night, there was the usual amount of dislike between the two teams. Specifically, there’s Kendrick Perkins who doesn’t like anybody except his momma, and Zach Randolph, whose not a lighthearted fellow either.

As Powerman 5000 once said, this is what it’s like when worlds collide. Heads up, explicit language in this video as Zach Randolph makes Perkins a special kind of promise after the first free throw.

An unconfirmed rumor was circulating that there was a fight between the two players, which local police offered no comment in regards to the situation. More to come
