Comments
Hometown: Brooklyn, NYFirst Sighting: July 29th, 9:30am EST/USA vs. France The New York Knicks’ main man will join eleven other hoopers this week on the U.S. Men’s Olympic Basketball Team to take on the competition. The guys already beat out Great Britain in an exhibition game earlier this month, and we can’t wait to watch Melo work his magic on the court for Game 1.

Check out why we're nuking day-old coffee:

• New York Knicks star Carmelo Anthony is suspended for one game without pay for confronting Boston Celtics player Kevin Garnett on Monday, reports ESPN. Anthony tried to confront Garnett in the tunnel, near the locker rooms and in the parking garage. As a result, Anthony will not be allowed to play in tonight's game against the Indiana Pacers. "There are no circumstances in which it is acceptable for a player to confront an opponent after a game," said NBA executive vice president of basketball operations Stu Jackson. [ESPN]

• Despite having a decent year at the box office, Tyler Perry earned a number of Razzie nominations, which are given to the worst of the movie industry. He was nominated for Worst Actress (in drag), Worst Screen Couple, Worst Director, Worst Sequel and Worst Ensemble. Thankfully, no one takes these awards seriously. [Grio]

• A few weeks ago EPSN commentator Rob Parker made headlines after publicly criticizing Redskin's quarterback Robert Griffin III's blackness. As a result, he's lost his job. ESPN vice-president Mike Soltys took to his Twitter account to inform everyone saying, "Rob Parker's contract expired at year end. Evaluating our needs and his work, including his recent RGIII comments, we decided not to renew." [Mike Soltys' Twitter]

• Congratulations are in order! Rihanna won a People's choice award last night. The Unapologetic diva won for Favorite R&B Artist while Nicki Minaj won for Favorite Hip Hop Artist. [People's Choice Awards]
