Things are getting very ugly in the NBA, and I'm not talking about the Lakers' 40-point win over the Rockets last night, or Dwight Howard ripping Stan Van Gundy. Or the fact that Glen "Big Baby" Davis buckled under unfair pressure and apologized for doing nothing wrong just to appease a delusional fan. I'm talking about much uglier and more serious incidents. Mark Cuban taunted Kenyon Martin's mother. Martin responded by using a homophobic slur. And now video has emerged of La La Vazquez, Carmelo Anthony's fiancee and a one-time SI Swimsuit model, getting into a confrontation that led to her ejection from Monday night's Nuggets-Mavs game. Vazquez claims fans were taunting her with racial insults, while the Dallas fans insist Vazquez started the whole thing.

The Red Wings and Ducks engaged in a little brawl AFTER last night's game. It was good, but probably not good enough to make this list of the Top 10 Playoff Fights.

Sports Video Of The Day

This clip has it all. Very impressive soccer goal, over-the-top call by the announcer and teammates pretty much assaulting the guy who scored. (Thanks to Markus Nachtigall, of Porto Alegre, Brazil, for the link.)

Karaoke Video Of The Day

Chris Cooley, Brad Penny and Chuck Liddell recently joined Steel Panther on stage for a little Don't Stop Believin'.

Another Don't Stop Believin' Video Of The Day

As Cooley, Penny and Liddell demonstrated, once a certain hour of the night hits and a few adult beverages have been ingested, something unexplainable happens and I, um, I mean, many people, just can't resist the urge to belt out the Journey classic. But oftentimes people don't even sing the words, and the result ends up being ... well, the video below will show you.
