15 Richest NBA Players

Michael Jordan of the Chicago Bulls (L) looks to m

The NBA and the salaries of their players is always a hot topic. Are the players making too much? Are the players making too little? Overall a debatable topic; however, our list of the top 15 showcases the top talents that have delivered for their teams, cities, and the NBA. They are super rich and it’s deserved.

Looking into what factors in to a player’s net worth is not only salary, but also business ventures as well as sponsorships. Most of the players on this list have made healthy salaries playing and the truly elite have gone beyond. Which players just missed the list? Oh, there are a few, some truly not deserving of the top 15.

First, there’s Dwayne Wade, the cornerstone of for the Miami Heat and their three championships. Valued with a net worth of $90 million dollars, he just falls short, but in my opinion has been worth every penny. Now, three dishonorable mentions. First, Dwight Howard ($100 million), a great player that has yet delivered greatness on a team level. Currently on the Atlanta Hawks, he will have another chance this season in the playoffs, but don’t hold your breath. Then there’s Juwan Howard ($80 million), the first NBA player to be awarded a $100-million-dollar contract and it’s safe to say not worthy. Finally, we have Alan Houston who received a six-year $100-million-dollar contract because his agent convinced the New York Knicks he was the next Michael Jordan. Sadly, he was not.

Ready to see the richest NBA players? We’ve got current stars, ex-stars that are now in the broadcast booth, and, of course, Michael Jordan, who should probably be on here twice given his influence and net worth. Here are the 15 richest NBA stars today.

15 Shocking Facts About Kurt Cobain

KC

Kurt Cobain was more than a musician. For many, he was a voice of a generation, in a time when hope was dwindling and music was too manufactured. Enter Cobain and his stripped down guitar, lyrics, and a message that was always high on revolution, challenging the status quo, and love, always full of love.

A lot was written during his ascent to stardom, during the ups and downs of his band Nirvana as well as after his death by suicide. Some is shocking, some strange, but regardless, it’s very interesting. Cobain was a unique individual that, despite being quiet, was always the center of attention once he entered a room or took the stage.

So what didn’t make the list? There was a rumor that Cobain auditioned for the Melvins prior to forming Nirvana. This is not true. Did you know what Cobain did the first time he saw his video “Smells Like Teen Spirit” on television? He called his mom. See, stars are just like us! Cobain also wrote about sexual assault, but it’s not the song “Rape Me” that many associate to this. That song is more about the media and their relationship with his band. The song “Polly” was based on a sexual assault story he heard about, written from the perspective of the woman who was assaulted.

Ready to learn more about the grunge god Kurt Cobain? We’ve got dedicated songs, some of Cobain’s favorite people and even a petting zoo? Say what? That’s right, it’s time to get started. Here are 15 shocking facts you didn’t know about Kurt Cobain.

15 Songs From The 90’s We Want To Forget

vi

The nineties were pop culture fireworks. The decade brought us Friends, the Internet, and O.J. Simpson. It was also an exciting time for music, introducing to us the grunge rock bands, Eminem, and The Fugees. Not everything was new, fun, and double-murder trials though. There was also a lot of popular music that was bad, like, really bad. Unfortunately these songs didn’t die out with the turn of the new millennium.

So what does it take to make this list? First, it had to be one of those songs that were overplayed so much it became a staple of the times and in certain cases, continues to receive airplay today. Second, and this is key, any song from the genre that was terrible then and somehow found a niche in our lifestyles such as weddings or sports events. These are the worst of the worst and need to be forgotten.

Honorable mention goes to Shania Twain who had many hits in the nineties, but it’s “You’re Still The One I Want” twang that continues to hang in the air today. There is nothing too horrible about the actual song, but it doesn’t go away and hours, weeks, years later, it’s still in your head. It’s the type of song that can drive you mad.

No finger pointing at any one genre, we’ve got hip hop, pop, country, and rock represented here. Everything from un-sexiness to thongs to mullets, everything is here. Man, the nineties was a good decade for mullets. Here are the songs from the nineties you really want to just forget.

Parenting Tips 101: Don’t Watch Law & Order SVU Then Take Your Kid To a Waterpark

Welcome to parenting tips 101. Don’t expect many of these, I don’t really have a lot of tips in this area.

show-banner-portrait-small-law-order-svu-57ab47800061a-8c61bac720c0739698dfef78930a10105ed19f28

This past weekend I was busy doing God knows what and had the television on for background sound. Law & Order: Special Victims Unit was on because it’s always on. (Note: that’s fact.) Anyway, you can’t help but eavesdrop on the show. The episodes that day each involved a toddler being stolen from a public place. One second they are there the next a kid-toucher is running with them down the street toward the subway. These guys are pros and (according to the show) know where every camera is so if you lose your kid good luck! So…the next day I found myself at a big water park with lots of people. I wouldn’t let a second go with my eyes off my kid, fearing he was going to be snatched by a kid-toucher and taken to a dungeon… I consider myself lucky there was no incident; however, and this is going to be hard to believe…there was a bar in the middle of the park with three televisions and one had on Law & Order SVU – I’m not joking folks! That’s not acceptable regardless of how much you like Ice-T. Is Ice-T hyphenated? By the way, is kid-toucher hyphenated? Obviously I have fears of both… In summary: If you are a parent don’t watch this show, especially if you are going to a water park the next day. This has been parenting tips 101…

 

 


Guys I Hate: St. Patty’s Day Drunk Guy

Welcome to Guys I Hate, it’s pretty self-explanatory. Got a guy you hate? Drop me a comment – we probably hate a lot of the same guys.

s

I love holidays, I really do. Halloween through New Year’s Eve – huge time for me and my family. I can even handle Valentine’s Day. I loathe St. Patrick’s Day and there is nothing worse than drunk guy or we might as well just say drunk bro. Who exactly is this guy? He’s the one who takes off work so he can start drinking at 7:00am because “you can’t be drunk by noon if you don’t start early!” If you happen to get pulled into going out after work and end up at an Irish Pub it’s always six people deep at the bar trying to get a beer. This guy is always standing next to me and is always ready to throw a punch. Why? The guy is so blasted he won’t even remember the scene. He has puke on his shirt and is wearing a green shirt that probably says IRISH even though he’s clearly of Italian descent. Fuck this guy and if you see him out this Friday feel free to throw a proactive punch on my behalf…

15 XXX Movie Mishaps

Barry Brecheisen

There are pros and cons to every job. However, when you work in the adult movie industry there are extreme pros and cons in addition to strange mishaps that occur along the way. Here is a look at the extreme, odd and (some) downright gross stories from the “other” industry.

To make it in this world, especially in the adult industry, you need to get the scene right the first time and that means keeping focus regardless of what happens. If an object breaks, doesn’t fit, or hits you in the head, you shake it off (sometimes literally) and get back to work. Budgets in this industry don’t allow for many retakes so you really need to roll with the punches. I also suspect directors use the word “trooper” when something bizarre happens that would make most of us stop or just plain quit. “Hang in their kid, be a trooper, we need you kid!” Yeah, that sounds like something a director would say on one of these sets. At least that’s how I picture it.

You think you had a bad day at the office? Read on to see what happens in the adult movie industry, I doubt you had a sound from your body on mic for all to hear and I’m guessing you didn’t get set on fire. If this did happen to you and you made it through the day, well then congratulations, you have what it takes to make it in the adult industry. Here are 15 shocking mishaps from the other industry.
