For 18 seasons, Bill Kennedy has officiated over 1,000+ games in the NBA, becoming one of the league’s top referees. Following an on-court incident involving Sacramento Kings player, Rajon Rondo, Kennedy decided to come out as gay publicly.

“I am proud to be an NBA referee and I am proud to be a gay man,” Kennedy told Yahoo Sports on Sunday night. “I am following in the footsteps of others who have self-identified in the hopes that will send a message to young men and women in sports that you must allow no one to make you feel ashamed of who you are.”

After being ejected from a game between the Boston Celtics, Rondo hurled a “disturbing torrent of anti-gay slurs,” according to Yahoo Sports. “You’re a mother-fucking faggot. … You’re a fucking faggot, Billy,” was some of the language used. Instead of leaving the court, as per league protocol, the 29-year-old player began stalking Kennedy.

Rondo is the third player to be punished by the league for using homophobic slurs. Chicago Bulls center Joakim Noah and Los Angeles Lakers guard Kobe Bryant were fined $50,000 and $100,000 respectively for their offences.

Rondo is suspended for Sacramento’s game with the Houston Rockets tomorrow. Reportedly, he’ll lose $86,300 in game salary. Rondo took to Twitter to deliver a half-ass apology. Read it below, along with a statement from the NBA.

Until we hear it from the horse’s proverbial mouth, nothing is for certain. After all, Maroon 5, Britney Spears and Bruno Mars at one point have been attached to the coveted gig. Coldplay was also a possibility.

With all that being said, multiple sources have confirmed to US magazine that the British rock band has signed on officially to headline the Super Bowl 50 Halftime Show. According to the publication, Mars will be involved in the show at some capacity, as will other “friends of the group.”

With Coldplay releasing their seventh and rumored last studio album, A Head Full of Dreams, on December 4, the timing for this high-profile gig couldn’t be more perfect. Reports have it the NFL will officially announce the headliner in the coming weeks.

Do you think Coldplay can deliver a kick-ass halftime show? Weigh in below. Super Bowl 50 is set to take place on Sunday, Feb. 7, 2016.

UPDATE: It’s official. Coldplay scored the gig. Watch the announcement below.

It’s no secret that I have a huge thing for Diego Miguel. Pretty much anything new featuring the Brazilian model, I’ll post. Especially if it involves him being shirtless.

Diego graces not one, but two covers for Men’s Health Espana. Both require Miguel showing his moves on a pommel horse. Check out the other captivating cover below snapped by Edu Garcia.

It’s the end of an era for the Los Angeles Lakers. Kobe Bryant revealed his upcoming 20th season in the National Basketball Association will be his last. The 37-year-old athlete made the announcement in a thoughtful poem, titled “Dear Basketball,” over at Players Tribune.

Over his storied career, the shooting guard has five NBA championships under his belt, winning the title of NBA Finals MVP twice. In 2008, he earned the NBA Most Valuable Player title. Check out his poetic retirement announcement below.

Sports Stud: Mac Danzig

For this week’s Sports Stud, we’re featuring a retired American mixed martial artist named Mac Danzig. The 35-year old competed as a lightweight in several MMA promotions, most notably the Ultimate Fighting Championship. He made his official debut in the UFC in 2007 and retired in March of 2014.

Another interesting thing about Danzig is that he has been a vegan since 2004 and is an animal rights advocate. He’s been interviewed a lot about his raw vegan diet because the perception out there is that you need meat to be strong (especially for a sport like mixed martial arts) but he has helped debunk that theory and share the benefits of his diet and how he has made it successful.

For this week’s Sports Stud, I’ve chosen former NFL player Shawn Bullard. Since playing in the NFL, this handsome hottie has become the successful owner of a real estate development company and in 2009, the Fox School of Business announced Shawn as the winner of the distinguished “Be Your Own Boss” Bowl, making him the first African- American to win this honour.

Bullard starred on the reality show, Match Made In Heaven, where he was looking for true love. I haven’t watched it so I’m not sure what the outcome was.

Check out his sexy photos below.
