Steve Czaban and Andy Pollin, ESPN radio hosts based in Washington, D.C., have been suspended for derogatory comments made in a rant about transgender basketball player Gabrielle Ludwig.

Ludwig plays basketball for Mission College and was born Robert Ludwig, a fact Czaban and Pollin couldn't get enough of.

"How does this work? You lose testicles and gain eligibility?" one host asks in the following video.

With Czaban and Pollin constantly referring to Ludwig as "it," they continued:

During a tennis exhibition in Brazil this week, Caroline Wozniacki impersonated Serena Williams, using towels to pad her chest and rear end.

Funny, right?

Not according to some critics, most notable Whoopi Goldberg.

Said Goldberg on The View yesterday:

"That visual is generally seen with a bone in their nose, and a short little skirt like she's got on. And that's why people see it as being somewhat racist, because it's an image that we have seen before.

"And I don't ever remember them making fun of any of the white tennis players... Why Serena? What is it about her? Is it her color? Is it the fact she's not 4 inches wide and weighs 6 ounces, and can beat all of their asses with her eyes closed?''

It's probably because Wozniacki and Serena are good friends, with the former visiting the latter at home this year when Williams was dealing with blood clot issues.

But... maybe not? You tell us: Is Wozniacki's impression racist?

NBA action. It's fantastically insane, 24/7/365.

After Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade dropped 26 points on 11-13 shooting last night in a 101-92 win over the Atlanta Hawks, teammate LeBron James was fired up.

So much so, he uncharacteristically called out one of Wade's loudest critics.

Bron and Bark

"It means Charles Barkley needs to shut up," James said in response to a question of what Wade's performance meant to the team and to the All-Star himself.

Chris Wilcox is apparently not a big fan of the "Kiss Cam."

After seeing himself on the scoreboard as part of pro sports' ubiquitous mid-timeout entertainment traditon, the Boston Celtics reserve big man made his displeasure clear.

It looks like the Jets season isn't the only thing Scotty McKnight has to be depressed about. Sources reveal that McKnight and Hayden Panettiere have called it quits

Hayden Panettiere and Scotty McKnight at ESPYs

The duo supposedly split amicably a few weeks ago. After all, the pair looked happy when they attended the American Music Awards just last month. 

A source told TMZ that, "they will probably be back together sometimes down the road."

In the meantime, we suppose Hayden will just continue being hot on Nashville, while the Jets will continue to underachieve and look not so hot in the AFC East.

Tracy McGrady's Chinese Basketball Association debut is off to a terrific start.

The former NBA star turned Qingdao Eagles swingman was taunted by an opponent, the Beijing Ducks' Ji Zhe, who nailed a three and wagged his finger at McGray.

McGrady replied by elbowing and knocking down Zhe. Obviously.

Looks like T-Mac is bringing some of that NBA swagger overseas.
