Andre Iguodala's Dragonfly Jones Halloween Costume Was Stupendous

Andre Iguodala's Dragonfly Jones Halloween Costume Was Stupendous

We've seen some pretty fantastic Halloween costumes floating around the Internet over the past few days -- this headless Tony Romo was a personal favorite -- but the costume put together by Sixers star Andre Iguodala was clearly one of the best.

Perhaps being currently unemployed by the NBA allowed Dre to really put extra time and effort into his outfit. Iguodala dressed up as Dragonfly Jones, a recurring character on Martin Lawrence's hit TV series, "Martin." The description of the character from Wikipedia:

Dragonfly Jones: A martial arts "expert" who is beaten up in nearly every appearance. He always seems to owe money to a real martial artist, who is actually a student of Dragonfly's named Kenji, who would often beat Dragonfly up when he refused to pay him some small sum he was owed. Dragonfly does not appear in the fifth and final season.

The before and after alongside the real "Martin" character:

Tremendous.

NBA draft prospect Josh Jackson pleads guilty to misdemeanor for hitting car

NBA draft prospect Josh Jackson pleads guilty to misdemeanor for hitting car

LAWRENCE, Kan. -- Former University of Kansas basketball player Josh Jackson pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor traffic violation for backing into a car and driving away.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports that Jackson entered his plea Tuesday in Lawrence Municipal Court to striking an unattended vehicle. Two other charges, inattentive driving and improper backing, were dismissed.

Jackson, who is expected to be a top draft pick in next month's NBA draft, will be on probation for six months and must pay a $250 fine. If he violates his probation, Jackson would have to serve 30 days in jail.

Coach Bill Self suspended Jackson for the opening game of the Big 12 Tournament because of the incident.

The 6-foot-8 Jackson has now resolved two cases that had dogged him during his lone year at Kansas. He earlier reached a diversion agreement that requires him to attend anger management classes, write a letter of apology and refrain from using alcohol or recreational drugs for a year for his confrontation with a Jayhawks women's basketball player last year.

Jackson had pleaded not guilty to a misdemeanor count of criminal property damage after he argued with McKenzie Calvert on Dec. 9 outside a bar in Lawrence. He signed the diversion agreement on April 26.

Allen Iverson shares a tale of Michael Jordan trash talking Aaron McKie

Allen Iverson shares a tale of Michael Jordan trash talking Aaron McKie

It appears the Big3 League media blitz is already underway.

Allen Iverson and his Killer 3s team doesn't start play until the end of June and doesn't roll through Philadelphia until the middle of July, but that hasn't stopped the Answer from doing a little promo for the gimicky league.

A.I. sat down with actor and general hoops junkie Michael Rapaport for Fox Sports 1 for a segment that will air next month but they shared a teaser online.

In it, the topic of trash talking comes up. Iverson says he wasn't much of a talker himself but witnessed plenty from the likes of Michael Jordan who used intimidation to get to Aaron McKie.
