photo credit Last night, Lebron James was named as Sports Illustrated’s “Sportsperson Of The Year” and rightfully so. He has done so much in the past year from speaking out on social issues, sending more than 1,000 kids to college, donating more money and his time to numerous causes and he does it all with a huge smile. While the night was all about Bron, Jay Z, who was there to introduce him to the crowd, took a moment to throw a shot at Phil Jackson during his speech.

Bron, along with close friend and business partner, Maverick Carter, as well as director Antonie Fuqua are getting together to create a documentary on the life of Ali.
photo credit Tim Duncan will have his number 21 retired this Sunday, December 18th, when the Spurs host the Pelicans but from the looks of things he still has his love and passion for the game. He has been seen numerous times this season at Spurs practices and games after announcing his retirement over the summer and now he’s actual getting out on the court and making Pau Gasol work during games of one-on-one.

Joeviair Kennedy, a red shirt freshmen, was expected to be arraigned and charged with murder and armed robbery on Monday, over the death of 19 year old Jacob Jones.
photo credit When the Los Angeles Rams got beat down by the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday by a score of 42-14, it gave Jeff Fisher his 165th loss a head coach in the NFL, which tied him for the worst ever. That apparently was the last straw in his mediocre coaching career with the Rams as he was fired today, in a move that should’ve happened a long time ago.
photo credit Mark Cuban definitely didn’t become a billionaire by being a dummy yet he seems to be one of the only people who isn’t smart enough to realize how much of a superstar player that Russell Westbrook is. You may remember back in April when the Thunder were facing the Mavs in the first round of the playoffs, Cuban said a true superstar can carry a mediocre roster to 50 wins and a postseason series win. He noted that the Thunder failed to make the playoffs in 2014-15, when Kevin Durant missed most of the season because of a foot injury. Cuban was wrong then and is still wrong now for trying to stand behind his original comments.
photo credit Many different people have shared their opinion on Colin Kaepernick and him taking a knee during the national anthem before 49ers games this season. Whether you were in agreement with him, disliked him for it, or understood his cause but didn’t agree with how he went about it, everyone wanted to share their thoughts. That is everyone except his own parents, who have remained silent during all of this attention this season. There were reports that they didn’t support his stance, which they claim is not true since they just now are breaking their silence. They want it to be clear they stand behind their son.
photo credit The NFL announced yesterday that they will be fining Odell Beckham Jr $12,154 for verbally abusing a referee on the field. He made headlines last week after his post game comments about how officials are targeting him. He claimed he even had asked one of the officials what did he do wrong so he wouldn’t do it again and was told “get out of my face”. This fine however is not for any of those comments and instead was for remarks he made during the game itself.
photo credit Lebron James Jr has been making noise on the basketball court for a few years now but this was a little different. We are used to see Bronny dominate the competition among his peers but hitting deep shots on an NBA court is something new. After the Cavs took care of the Heat at home with ease last night, Bronny and his brother Bryce, as well as papa Lebron and others, were on the court when Bronny decided to let it fly from half court.
A leaked sex tape from Adrien Broner’s phone just cost the boxer $175,000 in court. Broner had made the video with two willing women but neither of them ever consented to Broner showing it to the public. The sex tape somehow made it’s way to World Star but Broner denied he was the one who uploaded it because he had lost that phone. The jury actually sided with him but still found him negligent.
