Trayvon Martin Protestors Storm Wal-Mart, The Game Goes Ballin’, Amanda Bynes Wants An Iced-Out Grill?
Thick Tuesday. The air is thick so what better way to get things started than with some heated controversy still going on in the Trayvon Martin case. It looks like the protestors are far from finished and Wal-Mart is the new crash spot. Speaking of big things going down, is Game flirting with a shot in the NBA after going out balling with a notable baller? Someone trying to ball too hard is Amanda Bynes and her pursuit of an iced-out grill? All this coming up in SOHH Whatcha Think.

1. Far From Over
Even though the George Zimmerman case ended over the weekend, the pain and agony of the verdict won’t go away for quite some time, if ever. After some calm protests took place in various spots on Sunday and into Monday, things became a bit out of hand at a local Wal-Mart. The Los Angeles Times has more:
A peaceful protest of the George Zimmerman verdict in Los Angeles turned violent Monday after youths broke away from the main demonstration in Leimert Park, stomped on cars, broke windows, set fires and attacked several people. KCBS-TV/KCAL-TV reporter Dave Bryan and his cameraman were among those who came under assault. One of the two journalists was taken to a hospital with a possible concussion, Los Angeles Police Department Lt. Andy Neiman told The Times. Protesters also stormed a Wal-Mart in the Crenshaw district of Los Angeles, pushing their way through as guards scrambled to close security gates. A short while later, LAPD officers wearing helmets and carrying batons swarmed the store as others marched through the parking lot. (Los Angeles Times)
Could this be a sign of what more is to come in the George Zimmerman/Trayvon Martin? Is this just an immediate reaction that will be a distant memory by Friday? What’s next, if anything, in the protests? #SOHHWhatchaThink?
2. Game On
The Game might not be filming a reality show but hanging out with basketball stars like Houston Rockets player James Harden, he should consider a new one. We’ve known Game can ball for quite some time but he showed just how much of a team player he is with Harden recently. Complex has the clip:
Remember a couple summers ago when Kevin Durant took part in, like, 657 summer league games and made highlight after highlight after highlight? We get the feeling that this summer is going to be a lot like that for James Harden. Over the weekend, he caught an alley-oop from The Game and threw down a sick dunk. And in the same game, he also threw down a pretty crazy one-handed dunk, too. Watch both dunks in the clip above. Expect a lot more of these highlights over the course of the next couple of months… (Complex)
With Dwight Howard now on the Houston Rockets, is there any chance Harden is trying to convince Game to lace up his shoes and give the NBA a try-out? We’ve seen Lil B do it in the past, why wouldn’t Game make a nice fit considering all of the work-outs he’s done? Could there be more to this story? #SOHHWhatchaThink?
3. Iced Out
The idea of Amanda Bynes rapping is still a bit hard for most people to comprehend but once you add the fact that she wants an ice grill in her mouth, it sounds more like a joke than anything else. Nonetheless, Bynes is trying to show she’s really about that life. TMZ has the inside:
Amanda Bynes secretly wants to be just like Miley Cyrus … at least in the grill department … so says the man hired to construct her gangster bling, Ben Baller. Ben is the artist making Amanda’s mouth piece — which he says cost her $10,000 — and recently Instagrammed a mold of the actress’ chompers. So when our pap saw him out in NYC … he HAD to ask … what was it like working with crazy the future rapper? Ben says it was a trip — watch the video — he goes into detail about her nutty behavior. But more shocking … Ben also revealed Amanda’s number one request for her grill, explaining how she wanted it to be just like Miley Cyrus’. Interesting considering Amanda previously blasted Cyrus on Twitter as “Ugly.” Talk about a 180. (TMZ)
Has the Amanda Bynes craze finally died down? It seems like the more she’s trying to embrace this whole hip-hop, stereotypical lifestyle, the more she is making herself look bad. Could an ice grill really be something she wants or is this a publicity stunt? #SOHHWhatchaThink?
