The Black Mamba is back! Well sort’ve… The Los Angeles Lakers took on the Utah Jazz on Sunday night for their first preseason game. It also marked the return of Kobe Bryant who sat out last season after undergoing surgery for a torn rotator cuff. As expected, his first game back showed a bit of rust. Bryant played just 12 minutes and finished with 5 points after going 1/5 from the field and hitting 2 free throws in the Lakers 90-71 loss. His first shot of the night was a doozy…
The Green Bay Packers beat the San Francisco 49ers 17-3 on Sunday. It was another bad game for 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick who only passed for 160 yards, no touchdowns, an interception and was sacked 6 times. Clay Matthews made Kaepernick’s day just a bit worse.
Serena Williams posted a photo on her Instagram account at the San Marcos river in Texas with Arrow star Colton Haynes and another woman. While Williams’ infamous behind was on display, fans noticed something else in the picture.
The Kevin Durant and Stephen A. Smith saga has taken a dramatic turn. It all began when Smith said sources told him Durant preferred to go to the Lakers if he decided to leave the Thunder. Durant fired back, calling Smith a “liar” and saying none of his family members or friends speak to the ESPN anchor. Smith responded to Durant on Twitter saying he never claimed to speak to Durant or his family members and that he is not a liar. As you know it’s Stephen A. and a simple tweet response would not be enough, after all, his show “First Take” is built on drama. So today during the show, Smith delivered a WWE style rant to come at KD.
It may seem like an odd pairing to some but Floyd Mayweather and Justin Bieber are good friends. The undefeated boxer retired after winning his last fight against Andre Berto. Though many doubt that he’s actually retired (going out in such a lackluster way), Mayweather is sticking to his guns and took a trip with Bieber to Bora Bora to enjoy his “retired” life. It definitely looks beautiful and relaxing.
Drake was the primary headliner on Saturday for the Austin City Limits Music Festival (ACL Fest) performing some of his hits like “Hotline Bing” and “HYRF” before bringing out Future to perform singles from their joint mixtape “What a Time to Be Alive”.

NFL policy says that all credentialed media get access to the locker rooms after games. Someone working the Jaguars-Colts game in Indianapolis on Sunday violated that policy, keeping three female reporters out because of their gender.
