Hey, Steve Nash, you might as well refer to Justin Bieber as a bus driver.

Because the singer just took you to school!

During a pick-up game this week that featured Canadian legend against Canadian legend, the 17-year old received a pick from a teammate, crossed over the two-time NBA MVP and finished with a reverse lay-up that was nothing but net... and he did it all with Selena Gomez cheering him on.

Seriously, is there anything the Biebs can't do?!? Watch now:

Evelyn Lozada swears she is DONE with Basketball Wives.

The reason is not because she was neither a wife, nor married to a basketball player. She's simply fed up and insists no amount of cash will change that.

Mmm hmm. Heard it all before. Like Sammi and Ronnie on Jersey Shore, she and the VH1 program always end up back together (and painful to watch).

Why is this time (supposedly) different?

Sources close to Evelyn say Lozada made up her mind after VH1 posted a blog implying Evelyn cheated on fiance Chad Ochocinco with Terrell Owens.

Evelyn is furious and claims the rumor - which apparently surfaced earlier this year and was a point of contention with the network - is simply untrue.

She feels betrayed by the network, which has since pulled the blog. Still, Lozada has already decided enough is enough and says she won't be back.

Evelyn is now looking for other opportunities and will focus on planning her upcoming wedding to Ochocinco, according to reports. Thank goodness.

Kurt Angle will not submit to the charges against him.

The TNA wrestler was arrested early Sunday morning for DUI, but he isn't merely maintaining his innocence in the face of that incident - he's offering proof that no illegal activity occurred!

TNA has obtained the state of Virgina's Certificate of Blood Alcohol Analysis, and it lists Kurt's B.A.C. at .06 at the time of his arrest. The legal limit in Virgina is .08.

Why did a motorist report the former Olympic Gold Medalist was swerving?

"I was returning from an iMPACT Wrestling show in an unfamiliar place, late at night and was trying to find the exit for my hotel," Angle says in a statement. "I fully cooperated with the officer who clearly recognized me while performing his standard procedures. Subsequent to the stop, I was asked to submit to a breathalyzer test and passed. I do not believe that I broke any laws and will be entering a plea of not guilty in response to any pending charges."

Denied the opportunity by all 32 NFL teams to make a comeback, Tiki Barber is "flabbergasted" but apparently content to move on with his life.

"This is the last time I am speaking on this subject in any way, shape or form,'' said Barber's agent, Mark Lepselter, to the New York Post. "You can't worry about the things in life you can't control and Tiki has moved forward accordingly.''

Sports Illustrated's Peter King reported Monday that Barber didn't get a single call over the weekend as teams began finalizing their rosters.

"I hear he's devastated," wrote King, who also talked to Lepselter, who told him: "We are flabbergasted that Tiki has not had an opportunity with any NFL team, especially when rosters were at 90 players this year (during training camp)."

"I certainly thought some team would be intrigued to see what he had left."

Barber's professional life imploded a few years ago when he divorced his pregnant wife and began seeing 23-year-old intern Traci Lynn Johnson (above).

The Today personality then likened himself to Anne Frank, which was lame.

The University of Maryland defeated the University of Miami last night by a score of 32-24.

It was the first game of the season for both teams, the debut of Randy Edsall as the Terrapins' coach and the first game for the Hurricanes since news broke of a scandal that involves booster Nevin Shapiro and the money, gifts and prostitutes he bestowed on players over the last decade.

Still, none of the post-game chatter focused on any of these elements. Instead, all viewers only had one question: What the heck is up with those new Maryland uniforms?!?

Maryland Football Jerseys

With all due respect to Oregon football, the school may have set a new low in athletic fashion with this double-sided helmet and coordinated shoulder pad area. The uniform makes Nicki Minaj's VMA outfit appear sensible.

What do you think of the look?

Not unlike when she ran for V.P., Sarah Palin finished second this weekend in an Iowa half-marathon. Unlike the '08 election, though, second place is impressive!

Conveniently vague on whether she's running for president, basking in attention without having to do any real campaigning, she was fully committed to this run.

She finished second among women 40-49 with a respectable time of 1:46.10 in the Storm Lake, Iowa, event. That's just over eight minutes a mile for 13 miles!

Palin Runs

Sarah Palin actually did some legwork!

A tweet from Palin mentioned the run: “Thank you, Storm Lake, Iowa. You put on a great event & we loved meeting some great folks in your beautiful town today!”

She did not announce her intention to run prior to the event, though, and competed under her maiden name, Sarah Heath, listing her residence as Des Moines.

As for whether she'll run for the White House: Should she?

The infamous oak tree that Tiger Woods drove into that fateful night has met a fate similar to that of his golf career. It's gone down hard.

It was Thanksgiving night in November 2009 when Woods - hopped up on painkillers and reportedly fleeing Elin Nordegren - hopped in his Escalade and plowed into the tree, which sat in his neighbor's yard.

Well, new neighbors moved in recently and tore the thing down.

The construction company that did the work on the property said the tree was in terrible shape ever since the crash. The new peeps decided to get rid of it in spite of (or perhaps because of) its status as a memento of Tiger's affair with Rachel Uchitel.

A new tree will be planted soon, according to TMZ.

For now, though, there's just a portable John sitting there, allowing workmen to relieve themselves on the very spot where Tiger Woods' career went down the toilet.

Downright poetic.

In a new interview with Univision, former boxer Oscar De La Hoya has opened up about the depth of his personal issues, which culminated this spring in a trip to rehab.

"Rock bottom was recently," De La Hoya said, according to an English-language transcript provided by the network. "Within couple of years, just thinking if my life was even worth it. I don't have the strength, I don't have the courage to take my own life but I was thinking about it."

De La Hoya says he's been sober for three months and admits, yes, he was unfaithful to his wife. However: "We are obviously not talking a Tiger Woods here."

Former NBA player Javaris Crittenton has been arrested on murder charges.

The fugitive from justice was trying to board an airplane in Orange County, Calif. Crittenton had checked in for a flight to Atlanta Monday night, where his lawyer said he was going to surrender in the murder case against him.

He was taken into custody and booked at an L.A. police station.

Javaris Crittenton Mug Shot

A wanted man by the FBI, he was booked on suspicion of being a fugitive from justice, a bureau source has confirmed to the Washington Post.

Javaris, who played for the Washington Wizards and was the other player involved in the Gilbert Arenas gun incident, allegedly killed Julian Jones.

Cops believe Crittenton was not aiming at Jones but rather someone else in the area who may have robbed the former basketball player in April.
