By now I’m sure everyone has seen LeBron James new Beats by Dre commercial highlighting his return to Akron and the Cleveland Cavaliers. It also shows James at his high school St. Vincent–St. Mary. Well an ESPN reporter mentioned the commercial and said she wished it was Kevin Durant back in PG and Montrose Christian. Durant was born in Suitland, Maryland, just outside of Washington, D.C. His basketball success started in Prince George (PG) county, Maryland. He also went to Montrose Christian school also in Maryland. Many people have speculated that Durant will have a “coming home” celebration of his own with the Washington Wizards. So what did Durant have to say in regards to her tweet?
The Knicks are starting the season off with a bang as they held an open team scrimmage on Sunday at Madison Square Garden. Celebrities like Justin Bieber and Taylor Swift were in the building while Nas and Swizz Beatz hyped the crowd up with their performances.
The San Francisco Giants had some serious star power at game 5 of the World Series as they beat the Royals 5-0 and took a 3-2 series lead. Legendary Giants slugger Barry Bonds was there and snapped a photo with Kanye West and Kim Kardashian. This was great for a couple reasons. 1. On Kanye’s album Graduation there was song titled Barry Bonds. 2. AT&T park is where Kanye did his awesome marriage proposal to Kim. It must’ve been a great night because we even have a picture of Kanye smiling.
Like everyone else, Kevin Durant is a big fan of Drake. Three songs hit the web including “6 God”, “Heat Of The Moment” and “How Bout Now”. Durant posted and then deleted a video of him singing along to “How Bout Now”. The song is about a girl who didn’t really give Drake a chance but he wonders how she feels now that he’s rich and famous. Hmmm I wonder if Durant has a particular reason he likes this song. Durant gets a lot of flack for deleting his social media posts but singing isn’t really his forte so I’ll give him a pass on this one. Anyways celebrities should know by now that deletion doesn’t work, somebody will always capture it a couple seconds after you post.
The dust still hasn’t settled from the firestorm ESPN caused when they blamed Kobe Bryant for the Los Angeles Lakers downfall. According to them, Kobe is the reason many free agents would not sign with the team. Paul George already refuted that claim and now Carmelo Anthony is speaking out.
