Remember not too long ago when Ayesha Curry showed that she couldn’t exactly handle social media when things weren’t going her way? Some fans have moved on from that whole “rigged” talk that she apologized for saying but some still haven’t. Ayesha made it worse on herself when she complained about offensive memes regarding her and her family, showing again that maybe she isn’t built for twitter if she can’t handle some slander along with all the praise she was used to getting. A certain troll tried her yesterday for pretty much those same things but this time Ayesha was ready to handle it. Major Key! Check the gallery!
Reports were swirling yesterday that Tim Tebow, among others, would be giving a speech at the Republican National Convention where Donald Trump will likely receive the presidential nomination from the party. Tebow didn’t waste much time letting people know he will not be part of the convention and he’s “amazed” at how fast rumors travel. When the news first came out, there was some backlash towards both himself and UFC president, Dana White, who will in fact be speaking at the event. While Tebow said he will not be part of the convention, he does try to give somewhat of an “all lives matter” message in his Facebook video.
James Harden is going to be in Houston for a while and he will be handsomely compensated to do so. The team made a surprise announcement today, telling the media they agreed on a contract extension that will keep him in H-Town until at least the end of the 2019-20 season.
Damian Lillard is already loved and revered in Portland and after this story the love will be even stronger. Lillard has a basketball camp each summer and Erica Cassidy’s son went last year. She wanted him to go this summer as well but money was tight at the time of enrollment and by the time she came up with the money, the camp was full. Erica decided to give it a shot and send Lillard a DM on Instagram, asking if there was any way possible her son could be fit into the camp. To her surprise not only did Lillard make a spot for her son, he covered the cost as well.
The newest version of an NBA super team is in effect thanks to Kevin Durant deciding to join the already loaded Golden State Warriors. While they are the clear odds on favorite to win the title next year, nothing is guaranteed, which is why you play the games. Last year the Warriors were 73-9 without Durant, so naturally fans want to expect even more wins this year but it likely won’t work out that way. In fact, the team will need time adjusting and might even struggle for the first month or two of the season but by the time the playoffs come around they should be in high gear. With that said, Steph Curry wants fans to be realistic about the upcoming season.
Lebron James was on top of the world during the Cavaliers championship parade in downtown Cleveland. He addressed an estimated crowd of more than one million people and millions more on television but there apparently were some haters in the audience. Two people filed complaints with the FCC for Bron’s F-bombs and one of them referred to him as a “drunken sailor”.
Congratulations are in order for Serena Williams who just won her seventh Wimbledon title, making short work of Angelique Kerber, defeating her 7-5, 6-3 in about 80 minutes. In the process, she tied Steffi Graf for the most Grand Slam wins all time with 22. Enjoying the show were Beyonce & Jay Z, who were seated in Serena’s box as the action unfolded. It’s pretty safe to assume that Serena will surpass Graf and win #23 and even more at some point in the future, which will likely solidify her position as the greatest female athlete of all time. Check the videos below.
Some OKC fans are very understanding about Kevin Durant deciding to take his talents to the bay area. They appreciated what he did for their city and community for the past eight years and they know he gave them everything he had on the basketball court. On the flip side however, there are some fans who are not so easy going about him leaving. We’ve seen the people burning jerseys and running their mouths but some fans are getting their own revenge in a different way.
Dwyane Wade married his high school sweetheart, Siohvaughn Funches, in 2002 and they enjoyed what seemed like a happy relationship until around 2007. That’s when some issues began to arise and by 2010 they were officially divorced. Wade was awarded custody of the couple’s two children, Zaire and Zion in 2011 and after that she somewhat went off the edge, staging a bizarre sit in protest at Daley Plaza in Chicago, claiming Wade had left her “homeless.” Her behavior only solidified to the court that they made the right decision in the custody battle. She claimed she was left homeless, despite receiving payments from Wade monthly at the time to the tune of thousands of dollars per month. Eventually they settled on a lump sum payment of $5 million dollars in 2013 and that would be the end of everything. Well it’s 2016 and Wade is back in Chicago and she is trying to reopen everything, claiming she deserves more money.
Eagles center, Jason Kelce is in some trouble thanks to his twitter account. Early Friday morning, a tweet came from Kelce’s account directed at Hillary Clinton that said “Please kill yourself”. As you might expect, if you’re an NFL player and you tweet something like that at the potential next president, someone is going to notice. Within three hours, all of his tweets were erased off his account and eventually all of his social media accounts were deleted. Kelce is hiding behind the famous “I was hacked” excuse but in this case it might not be just an excuse.
