The recent situation with Marcus Smart falling into the crowd and subsequently shoving Texas Tech fan Jeff Orr has many questioning what prompted Smart's actions. Smart has gone on record saying that Orr used a racial slur (the rumor is that he told Smart to "go back to Africa"), though Orr denies that and claims he called Smart a "piece of crap". This whole "he said, she said" (or, I guess "he said, he said") situation has me wondering what really went down.
I can't imagine that Smart reacted that way after being called "a piece of crap". I mean, that's a third-grade-recess-level insult, definitely not worthy of risking your NBA draft stock by shoving a guy. A racial slur, now that I understand. But let's pretend for a moment that Orr is telling the truth and that didn't happen. What else could Orr have said to prompt the shove? I think a well placed insult about Marcus Smart's girlfriend likely would have done the trick.
There is really no evidence that Marcus Smart actually has a girlfriend, and I highly doubt that Jeff Orr had any inside information to that end. That said, going for the girlfriend insult is pretty easy go-to in a situation like that. If that's something along the lines of what Jeff Orr said - then that would certainly give evidence to the fact that Marcus Smart's girlfriend may exist. Unfortunately though, I'm guessing that we will never know for sure - it's between Orr and Smart and I doubt they'll say much more than they already have.

For most NBA fans, the Boston Celtics surprising head coach hire, Brad Stevens, led to a lot of questions. Who? Why? Are you kidding? That guy? And also, who is Brad Stevens wife?
While I remain as puzzled as many of you, I can answer the final question affirmatively that Brad Stevens wife is Tracy Stevens (OK, I'm kidding too, 24 hours later, I'm actually kind of on board with the hire). Back to Brad Stevens wife, though. Brad and Tracy Stevens were married in 2003. The couple met while enrolled at DePauw University where Tracy was playing varsity soccer. Tracy got a law degree from Case Western in Indianapolis shortly before the couple's August 2003 marriage, and now works as a lawyer specializing in labor and employment issues. The couple will be bringing their two children to Boston with them, son Brady and daughter Kinsley.
The couple established charitable roots around Butler, notably taking part in and hosting events for Coaches vs Cancer during Brad and the Butler Bulldogs NCAA Final Four appearances in 2010 and 2011.

Did you know that Kris Humphries was married to Kim Kardashian?
We're sorry to break it to you, since it flew under the radar, but their everlasting love didn't quite last forever. Humphries has been on the market for longer than 72 days actually, and despite his proclamations to abstain from dating until his divorce is finalized (currently scheduled for the end of June), it would appear that he's back in a relationship.
According to various gossip blogs, including TMZ.com, Kris Humphries is dating Fatmire Sinanaj, who thankfully goes by Myla. Humphries tried to deny their relationship by saying that the two just happened to walk out of their Miami hotel together, and she just happened to be walking near and sitting next to him while he lounged on the beach. Unfortunately, TMZ is reporting that not only did Humpries fly Sinanaj from New York to Miami, but they've actually been dating since January.
Kris has reportedly been bringing Myla to various games, including providing courtside seats for her, and her family. For her part, Myla works for a five-star hotel in New York, which remains unnamed. Myla attended Ellenville High School, and lists her favorite teams as the Lakers, Knicks, and now,... the Nets.
OK, we've been dodging this all along and let's get it out of the way. Much like Reggie Bush's bounceback after Kim Kardashian,... Kris bounced back with a complete Kim Kardashian doppelganger. Trust us, we don't blame the dude,... but wow. Talk about having a type...
