  • 2011: The Year in Cheerleaders [48 PHOTOS]

    Everyone's got their end-of-the-year lists, from top albums to best movies to weirdest news stories. But if you're a sports fan - especially football or basketball - and you watch a ton of games on TV, there's one aspect of the broadcast that ALWAYS stops you in your tracks. Yeah, you guessed it. The cheerleader. She's a special breed of woman whose moves and megawatt smile make your face melt. Hope you got your nostalgia knickers on because we're takin' a stroll back through 2011 for a retrospective on the year's hottest, most intriguing cheerleaders.

  • Demotivational Thursday: Basketball “Never Stops” Edition [22 POSTERS]

    Every Thursday, we feature the latest and greatest demotivational posters to hit the cybersphere. Last week, we counted our blessings with a feast for the eyes - Thanksgiving-themed demotivational posters. This week, to celebrate the end of the NBA Lockout (which no one will appreciate until June), we've assembled the most ballin' basketball related demotes (that's short for, yeah, you get it). Check them out in the gallery after the jump.

  • Spud Webb Named Coach of the Rick’s Cabaret Basketball Team [21 HQ PHOTOS]

    Earlier in the month, we told you about Rick's Cabaret launching a new all-dancer basketball league. Today, the gentleman's club announced that former NBA slam dunk champion Spud Webb has signed on to be the head coach of the NYC team. We were lucky enough to attend the announcement and snap off a couple pics of the newly anointed leader with his squad. Check 'em out along with a video of the NYC team's starting lineup after the jumpshot.

  • Top 10 Men’s College Basketball Players To Watch This Season [VIDEOS, POLL]

    Thanks to the only recently squashed NBA lockout, a lot of basketball heads have turned to the college level for their fix on hoops. Time and time again, you've probably heard people exclaiming that college ball is better than watching the pros. Perhaps now you'll understand why. Even though the NBA lockout is over, you might still have the collegiate fever. If you're just unsure of which players to watch or follow, let COED help you out. We're about to show you the country's best as we count down the top 10 elite men’s college basketball players to watch this season. Check out who made the cut after the jumpshot.

  • NBA Who? Introducing Rick’s Basketball League [78 PHOTOS]

    Back in August, we named Rick's Cabaret as one of the 10 best strip clubs in America. Why? Because they pull off stuff like this all-exotic dancer basketball league to help fill the void left by the NBA Lockout. The league will be made up of 11 teams, one from each city the chain has a club in (New York, Philly, Minneapolis, Indianapolis, Charlotte, Miami, Dallas, Fort Worth, Austin, San Antonio, and Houston). Each team will play 2 games over 2 days - November 17th and 18th. We were lucky enough to receive a special invite to check out the NYC squad. Good thing we brought a camera. Peep the pics from their practice after the jumpshot.

  • 8 NBA Teams That Benefit Most From The Lockout

    Now that the NBA's Nazi Commissioner David Stern has officially cancelled the first two weeks of the NBA season, all we can do now is pray that a season actually starts. The L and the players did just have 16 hour talks yesterday, so it's nice to know that they're at least making it seem like they give a f*ck. I'd be happy with a shorter season anyway because it's the playoffs that really matter. Even if the season doesn't happen, at least we have NBA 2k12 to fill the void. I'm sure that a few NBA teams are actually happy about the lockout - there are a bunch that actually benefit from a shorter regular season. Check out who those teams are after the jump.

  • 128 Reasons To End The NBA Lockout [PHOTOS]

    We remember when we first found out the NBA would follow in the NFL's footsteps and enter into a lockout, we thought the NFL would definitely settle way before its basketball counterparts. I mean, WAY before. We wouldn't be surprised if it went the whole year. Unless you're a diehard fan, you probably won't miss the NBA until around May/June when the playoffs would usually kick in... or until you realize you won't be seeing these beautiful bouncing cheerleaders. Ah, now the situation just got real. Check out our gallery of reasons why the NBA needs to sack up and end this sh*t asap after the jump.

  • Five Best Ways To Spend Your Bench Time During The NBA Lockout

    As the NBA lockout enters it’s third month, many NBA fans such as myself are coming to the realization that the whole season might be cancelled. In my opinion, the best post-season in any sport is the NBA Playoffs (I can hear the haters typing now). Without a real regular season, however, the playoffs won't mean as much. It also means that NBA fans won't have nearly as much to do during the cold, winter months. Don't worry though, I'm here for you. Below are five things you should be doing while your favorite athletes relax play competitively in Europe.

  • 5 Sports That Are Most Likely To Turn You Into A Sex Addict

    It seems most sports stars these days lead secret sex lives behind closed doors. The ones we don’t know about are probably just very good with disguises and have the wealth to afford bribery. Maybe their goal-oriented psyches desire further conquests on a different kind of playing field? While it is hard to believe they have so much energy left to use up, what follows is a look into which sports are most likely to turn those who play them into primordial sex hungry fiends; in no way based on any kind of medical research. It's called conjecture. Deal with it. Check out the list after the jump.

  • The Miami Heat’s Post-Game Locker Room Playlist According to Twitter

    Last night, the Mavs avenged their '06 Finals loss to the Heat with a decisive Game 6 victory over the Big Three in Miami for their first NBA title. It seems everyone and their Delonte West-banging mother rooted agaisnt the cHeat, painting Lebron, D-Wade, and Bosh like immature, taunting, childish, crybaby super villains. We feel Twitter is always a good measuring stick / barometer for public reaction, so it's no surprise that #heatlockerroomplaylist is trending. People are more pumped to see the Heat lose than the Mavs win. We sifted through the piles of suggestions to come up with the best of the best. Take a listen then suggest your own in the comments section below our partner links after the jump shot.

  • Dirk Nowitzki Is The German Moses [VIDEO]

    It's no secret we're big fans of the Dirka Dirka here at COED. He's not THAT much of a common household name in the U.S. Seriously, stop 10 people on the street and ask them who Dirk is and be prepared to get some ridiculous answers. Sure, NBA fans know him but he's no Michael Jordan. Not true in Germany. He's a God over there. He's on billboards, cereal boxes, and buses. You name it, he's on it. So, it's safe to say the Dirkness is basketball's equivalent of The Hoff. Or, if you're like the German dude in this video, he's "The German Moses". Whatever you call him, the guy's on fire right now leading historic come-from-behind victories in the past 2 weeks. Check out the vid after the jump!

  • Colossal Cleavage Collection: NBA Conference Finals Dancer Edition [113 PHOTOS]

    For the first time in what feels like a long time, the Los Angeles Lakers won't be in the NBA Finals. We WILL have a new league & Western Conference champion. Thought a lot of haters are glad to see them go, we have to admit we're going to miss them, strictly because we won't be able to ogle their dancers during timeouts and before/after commercial breaks. But, no worries, we've discovered the remaining 4 teams have some pretty decent talent as well. Yesterday, we showed you the Miami Heat dancers doing burlesque. Today, we broaden our scope with a gallery of well-endowed dancers from the Mavs, Bulls, and Thunder that'll make you want to bang from way downtown. Check it out after the jump!

  • 2011 Miami Heat Dancers Do Burlesque [67 PHOTOS]

    The Bulls dominated the Heat in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals and we have to believe it was due in part because Miami didn't have their dancers court side to distract D Rose and crew. We previously showed you the hotness that is the Heat squad back when Melo first joined the Knicks. Now, the dancers have turned up the heat with these pics of them doing Burlesque. Yeah, the movie starring Christina Aguilera sucked but this should more than make up for it. Check 'em out after the jump!

  • Best Bets to Win the 2011 NBA Title

    It's NBA playoff time and what better way to get into the action than by throwing down some wagers on the teams you think can take down the title.   Will LeBron's "Decision" pay off?  Will the old guard Celtics prove they are still the class of the East?  Is Derrick Rose poised to take his team all the way to the Finals?  Are Kobe and the Lakers ready to get to the finals for an amazing fourth straight year?  Do the Spurs have anything left in the tank?  Will Dallas finally make Mark Cuban's dreams come true?  It should be an interesting ride. Check Casino Steve's playoff predictions after the jump!

  • Brooklyn Decker vs. Katrina Bowden > Butler vs. UConn [WHO YA GOT?]

    Last night's NCAA Men's Basketball National Championship was weak sauce. At one point, Bulter was 2 for 23 from the field. I'm fairly confident I could hobble onto the court with my shredded ACL and hit a few J's from the elbow. The word "forgettable" comes to mind. But, to compensate for that poor display of athleticism, Esquire's Sexiest Woman Alive Madness has given us a national championship worthy of e*** proportions: Sports Illustrated swimsuit model Brooklyn Decker vs. 30 Rock assistant Katrina Bowden. In this matchup, we'd say Bowden's like Butler (underdog) and Decker's like UConn (favorite). Unlike last night's brickfest, this one should be close. Last week, we posted a bunch of Katrina's Facebook photos along with a recap of her road to victory. We're confident she won't sh*t the bed like the Bulldogs. Vote for your favorite after the jump!

  • Kemba Walker & UConn Will Dougie To Victory Against Butler [BETTING]

    After reaching an amazing second championship game in two years, Butler has become America's darling.  A real Cinderella story that's proved last year was definitely not a fluke.  They came within an inch or two of knocking off powerhouse Duke for the title last year and will look to avenge that loss tonight by taking down another perennial powerhouse, Connecticut. So, why is COED's bettin' man Casino Steve taking UConn? Find out after the jump!

  • Cheerleaders of the 2011 NCAA Final Four

    Pretty much nobody could've predicted the Final Four of UConn, Butler, Kentucky, and VCU. In fact, according to ESPN, only 2 of the 5.9 million people who filled out brackets on their site got the guessed the regional champions correctly. My guess is those entries were from chicks who picked based on how much they liked the teams' mascots or color schemes. To get you pumped for what's sure to be another stellar set of games, we're pitting each team's cheerleaders against each other and asking you to vote for the squads you like best. We think this is a better predictor than mascots or color schemes. Review the squads and vote after the jump!

  • 5 “Power Conference” Teams To Watch During March Madness

    Back in January we highlighted five teams that we considered "sleepers" who might make a difference in this year's NCAA championship tourney. As I watched the madness on CBS Saturday, they showed the "power conference" teams to watch in this year's tournament. Here's a little more info on each squad along with my thoughts on what to expect from them. We also have pics, vids, and a poll that you can vote on, so put on your bracketology hat and start anal-lyzing.

  • 6 Athletes Who Deserve Their Own Biopic

    There have been reports Mark Wahlberg has stated he wants to turn "The Fighter" into a trilogy. Is this the next Rocky franchise? Most likely not, since this one's based on actual events, but one wonders if Mickey Ward's story warrants three feature length films? Prior to The Fighter's release, his name rang few bells, but judging by its critical and box office success, one has to take a look around at other sports figures to see who's ripe for the Hollywood treatment. In April 2009, Bleacher Report published their list of athletes who deserve celluloid dedications, now we have our list. See our selections after the jump!

  • 50 Years of Free Throw Practice Hasn’t Helped

    Basketball in the United States has changed in myriad ways over the decades, from flat-footed set shots to dunks, from crotch-hugging uniforms to baggy knee-length shorts, from the dominance of American players to the recent infusion of international stars. But one thing has remained remarkably constant: the rate at which players make free throws.

  • Cheerleader Showdown: Miami Heat VS. New York Knicks

    With Melo making his way to the Knicks, it appears the Heat have some serious competition in the Eastern Conference. We've shown you how excited the Knicks dance team and the crowd at Madison Square Garden were. Apparently, that positive energy is working as the Knicks pulled off a nice upset win over the Heat over the weekend. We asked our followers on Facebook to vote on a series of Miami Heat and New York Knicks cheerleader photos. See who's winning and vote for your favorite after the jump!

  • Carmelo Anthony’s Knick Introduction Video

    Carmelo Anthony made his debut for YOUR New York Knicks last night at Madison Square Garden and as you'll see from this video shot by a loyal COED reader the arena was extremely receptive to their newest addition! Get ready to hear the Wiz Khalifa parody "Stat 'n' Melo" for the next 4 months. Former Celtics all-star Kevin McHale has reportedly said the Knickerbockers are the team to beat in the Eastern Conference while Charles Barkely states New York isn't a contender. See the video after the jump!

  • 49 New York Knicks City Dancers Photos

    After weeks of Melo-drama that included ridiculous rumors, speculation, and "confirmed" reports that Denver Nuggets star Carmelo Anthony would land with the New Jersey Nets, we have absolute, 100% stone cold factual evidence the New York Knicks finally made a deal for the 4-time All-Star and Brooklyn native. E'erybody's talkin' about it, so the last thing you need from us is our 2 cents. That's why we're hitting the mute button and bounce passing pics of the knockouts known as the Knicks City dancers.

  • The 12 Dumbest Convicted Pro Athletes

    The stereotype of the dumb athlete is as cliche today as "blacks love taffy" and "Eskimos own all Locksmith shops" were 20 years ago. And while we don't know much about taffy (accept that it tastes awesome), we are reminded daily that extraordinary athletic ability is not often accompanied by an extraordinary mind. Yes, there are always exceptions to every rule, but these 12 pro athletes have gone out of their way to keep this stereotype alive. Here are the 12 Dumbest Convicted Pro Athletes.

  • Colossal Cleavage Collection: NBA All-Star Weekend Dancers Edition [116 PHOTOS]

    With NBA All-Star Weekend taking place in LA over the next few days, we thought we'd showcase some of the NBA's most valuable players: the Dancers. More specifically, we'd like to highlight their most valuable assets: their cleavage. Previously, we brought you Colossal Cleavage from the NFL, the NHL, Hooters restaurant, and the Adult Entertainment Expo in Las Vegas. Today, we present NBA Dancers who look like they're smuggling basketballs in their shirts. Anyone up for a lil' one on one? See the pics after the jump!

  • The Most Underrated NBA Players of the Last Decade

    Throughout the history of the NBA, players who've been second fiddle to the team's franchise star have been just as significant as the big name. Scottie Pippin would've been a superstar on any other team had he not played in the shadow of Jordan throughout his prime. The same can be said of Chris Mullin playing behind Reggie Miller and of Joe Dumars being overshadowed by Isaiah Thomas. Every guy has that friend who seems to get lucky more often than he, but we just strung along like great wingmen, don't we? Your time will come, my friends - but this post is dedicated to the NBA's most underrated and unsung heroes over the last decade. See our selections after the jump!
