When you think of superstars in the league a few names come to mind like LeBron James, Kobe Bryant, Kevin Durant and now Stephen Curry. However one of those names was not voted in as an NBA All Star this year and he’s the league’s reigning MVP and scoring champion, Kevin Durant. Unfortunately he was hit with an injury and has appeared in just 19 of his team’s 42 games this season, and as a result, has remained largely invisible from the national spotlight. He finished just fifth in the West in All-Star voting for frontcourt players — more than 800,000 votes behind Anthony Davis, and almost 250,000 votes behind Marc Gasol. So how does he feel about that?
Once upon a time being a groupie hoe was frowned on, now girls brag about it. With the increase in social media and some women (who I won’t name) getting famous based on who they’ve slept with, now it’s the goal of many other women. Women no longer want to keep quiet about who they’ve bed, instead they would rather put the person on blast no matter how bad it makes them look. Case in point this wonderful young lady who’s Tinder profile went viral. She was so proud to have had sex with Odell Beckham Jr., she put it in her Tinder bio and told other women they need to step their games up and get on her level. Admirable.
You know what image this is in reference to; it’s the most iconic image in sports, Michael Jordan, soaring in for a dunk, defying gravity with his legs spread and his arm over his head with the ball about to throw down a massive dunk. You know it because it is the “jumpman” logo on the Jordan brand. But that’s the problem for a photographer who has filed a lawsuit against NIKE — he says the shoe manufacturer didn’t have the rights to use the image in that way.
