With the 2014 offseason Kevin Love Lottery in full effect, the sports world is speculating wildly on where the Minnesota big man will land. Among the many potential destinations, people seem to be pointing to Kevin Love's girlfriend Cody Horn as reason why the Lakers make the most sense.
To be accurate here, Kevin Love doesn't fully control his destiny this year. Yes, he could certainly sway the TimberWolves or his new team one way or another, but it really isn't fully up to him. All the same, Cody Horn seems to be one of many factors influencing people to believe the California kid may want to head home. Cody Horn is an actress with a pretty solid resume to date including movies Magic Mike, and End of Watch,Rescue Me, and The Office. Love was born in Santa Monica, though attended high school in Oregon before returning for college ball at UCLA. Horn was born, raised and now lives in Los Angeles.
Cody Horn has spent plenty of time in the spotlight, with her mother being a former model, and her father currently serving as the Chairman of Walt Disney Studios. If Cody Horn really has so much pull in the Kevin Love sweepstakes (and since we know she's reading this), we'd like to chime in with our own sales pitch. With so much time on the west coast, isn't it time for a change? Boston is a great place to live with plenty of movie and TV gigs shooting in the city. Plus, wouldn't KLove look great in the green and white? If you make this happen, we'll buy you a beer down at The Legends Club too. Thanks in advance Cody Horn!!

I feel dirty writing this post
LeBron James' mother, Gloria James, is now engaged to 31 year old Miami based rapper Da Real Lambo. The two have been dating for a couple years and plan to get married in the spring of 2014. LeBron, who turns 29 today, will have a stepfather just two years older than him.
Honestly, there's not a whole lot left to say. An iTunes search revealed nothing for Da Real Lambo in terms of music, but there are a few YouTube videos (including the high quality Cribs-esque piece on Lambo, described to go "in to the life of Da Real Lambo Crib to show you how he's living with out a major record deal."
Lambo, who's real name is Arthur Lambright, seems to enjoy the life that LeBron's soon-to-be-step-father includes. He's been quite public with his Instagram account as he follows the Heat through the 2013-2014 season, while including plenty of locker-room, backstage shots of him with the team.
Honestly, this is kind of a boring post.... but hey, remember when it was rumored that Gloria James was dating Delonte West?

LeBron James is arguably the biggest name in professional sports. Unfortunately, with that title and popularity comes increased scrutiny and media pressure. Therefore it should come as no surprise that just weeks before LeBron James and girlfriend Savannah Brinson walk down the aisle, rumors have started to fly accusing LeBron of stepping out. Bossip.com obtained a series of text messages between LeBron and model Carmen Ortega with each flirtily trying to arrange schedules for a meetup. The text messages were inconclusive to exactly what happened, and after rumors swirled with full internet-gale-force, Ortega performed an interview with Bossip.com to tell her side of the story.
Ortega told Bossip repeatedly that nothing happened between her and James, but did suggest that this wasn't his first time trying to set something up outside his relationship with Brinson. Ortega alleges that LeBron pursued her repeatedly, including one uncomfortable dinner together. Upon confronting LeBron with proof of his relationship to Brinson (and please, please tell me it was from this site,....), LeBron responded with "def don't believe everything you read." Ortega was also quick to opine that Brinson may be on board with LeBron's wandering eye, saying:
I almost feel like Savannah does know. He made some comments before. I asked him straight up, just tell me what’s your situation, he was more like “I’m not on lockdown, it’s not even like that. - Carmen Ortega - Bossip.com
While you'd be quick to give Ortega props for not getting into a physical relationship with a soon-to-be-married father of two, she's quick to credit her hesitation to a bad experience with Reggie Bush. There are allegations that Ortega, who admits to a relationship while Bush was with Kim Kardashian, was the other woman that ultimately broke them up.
While this article may have set the record for the number of times we've used some form of the word allege, it's pretty clear from Ortega's perspective that nothing happened with her and LeBron. Ortega will only speak to her involvement with James, and hints that there may be many more with a different ending to their story. As the wedding draws closer, will any more women come forward with stories on LeBron? We shall see...
