Arsenio Hall Launches Fundraiser To Buy The Clippers

CBS San Francisco

(CBS NEWS/ET ONLINE) – The Los Angeles Clippers will soon be looking for a new owner, and late night talk show host Arsenio Hall has officially thrown himself into the ring to purchase the team! There’s just is one small problem: he doesn’t have the $1 billion asking price.

But that isn’t going to stop Arsenio! On his show Monday night, the 58-year-old host and comedian revealed his exciting new ClipGoGo campaign, an online fundraising initiative using the crowd-funding site IndieGoGo that will take donations from Arsenio’s fans in an attempt to raise the money necessary to buy the team.

But what incentives are there for fans to donate? Well, Arsenio has established a number of perks, depending on how much someone gives.

For $50, Arsenio says he will retweet you, and likely ask why you didn’t donate $100. For $35,000, he’ll get a tramp stamp of your name on…

Good impression: NBA Draft prospects played in Milwaukee during NCAA Tourney

FOX6Now.com

MILWAUKEE (WITI) — The prospects at the NBA Draft Lottery can walk the walk. They wouldn’t have been invited to the talent showcase if they couldn’t play basketball at the highest level. They can talk the talk too. In most cases, because their advisors have trained them to say all the right things about all the teams that could select them in the NBA Draft on June 26th.

The guys projected to go near the very top of the draft are feeling pretty comfortable with this process.

“It hasn’t been stressful for me at all, honestly. I’m more excited about what’s to come. It hasn’t really been stressful for me. I’m just taking it a day at a time and I’m just trying to get better at my craft. I honestly and truly don’t even think about the draft that much,” Kentucky forward Julius Randle said.

Buffalo Bills fans push for Bon Jovi boycott to keep team out of Canada

Global News

TORONTO — A group of football fans in Buffalo, New York has organized a boycott of rock group Bon Jovi in an effort to keep the NFL’s Bills in the city.

Singer Jon Bon Jovi is rumoured to be considering a bid for the Buffalo Bills in partnership with Toronto’s Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment.

Many fans in Buffalo believe the team would be moved north.

A group known as 12th Man Thunder is asking bars, restaurants, bands and DJs to join the boycott online.

“Help us make ALL of [Western New York] a Bon Jovi FREE Zone,” reads the Facebook page.

“Ban Bon Jovi at your business and show your support for our Buffalo Bills!”

Those who sign up receive a pair of “Bon Jovi Free Zone” posters.

Supporters must promise not to play Bon Jovi songs — and the lead singer “is banned from your location.”

Ainge disappointed by No. 6 draft pick in lottery

WWLP.com

BOSTON (AP) — Celtics general manager Danny Ainge says he sees potential but no franchise players likely to be available with the No. 6 pick in the NBA draft.

That’s where the Celtics will be drafting.

Boston entered Tuesday night’s draft lottery with a 10 percent chance of landing the first overall pick. The most likely outcome was it would pick sixth, and that’s what happened.

Ainge told reporters on Tuesday night that he doesn’t think there’s anyone who is going to “come in and change the face of our franchise.”

The Cavaliers First Pick Is The Only Pick

CBS Cleveland

CLEVELAND (92.3 The Fan) — 1.7 percent. That’s all it took and the Cleveland Cavaliers are back at the top of the NBA Draft. The spot that produced Brad Daugherty, LeBron James and Kyrie Irving. Anthony Bennett, too, but this is not the time for that conversation.

In the case of James and the 2003 Draft, there was no deliberation to be had. Kyrie Irving was almost a lock over Derrick Williams in 2011, but a small contingent sought Williams as the top pick. Luckily, the Cavs made the right choice there. As for Bennett, the PF from UNLV was the last person anyone thought actually had a chance at landing at #1.

There are three choices who will be legitimately considered for the Cavaliers’ third selection at number one overall in four years: Jabari Parker of Duke, Joel Embiid of Kansas, and Andrew Wiggins, also a Jayhawk.
