The National Basketball Association is back! It feels like it never left with all the madness that went on in the offseason with All-Stars changing teams or wanting to (we are looking at you Jimmy Butler), but the first tip-off will go down tonight between the Philadelphia 76ers and Boston Celtics on TNT. ESPN will get in on the NBA action tomorrow with their own doubleheader and celebrate the occasion by releasing an off-season recap with 2 Chainz.
the video shows an animated 2 Chainz putting together a video clip and playing around on photoshop while using his trademark flow to talk about all of the headlines. DeMarcus Cousins, the King in Los Angeles, the Celtics being healthy are all covered in the quick verse from 2 Chainz. Now if we can get a full project before the year is over everything would be perfect.
Check out the clip below and let us know who you think will hoist the trophy this year.
Earlier this week, rap star Lil Wayneresponded to criticism shot his way from a New York reporter for appearing in an ESPN interview alongside Beckham.
“Good morning. Tunechi here. First let me start off by saying thank-you again to all the fans, the supporters for my music, for Tha Carter V, it’s awesome, it’s amazing. It’s unbelievable. Cloud nine. But today, this morning, I want to talk about something. My man Odell Beckham Jr. is taking a lot of flack, taking a lot of heat about this interview him and I done with Josina Anderson. First of all, let me thank Miss Josina Anderson, let me thank Odell for the interview. Let me just say first, I’ve been seeing things, I’ve been hearing things like if he wants, he being Odell, if Odell wants to be taken seriously, why would he do an interview with Lil Wayne next to him? I’ve heard things like that and I’ve seen things like Eli Manning said ‘I don’t watch Lil Wayne much.’ First of all, to the person that said, ‘How can he be taken seriously with Lil Wayne sitting next to him,’ the person that said that is a reporter, whatever, journalist from New York named Frank Isola. Frank, I rock with you, I actually like you. When you come on TV, I like you. I like your accents, your heavy New York, Italian whatever accent. I like the way you just do your thing. You say what you want to say and get your point across. You mentioned my name. My name came out your mouth this time. When that happens, I’m going to fire back at you. I only get on here to do positive things and great things but Frank, come on. I know you’re up there in New York. I know a little bit about New York, I spent time on the island out there called Rikers Island. I know a little bit about New York but I don’t know much about you though. Fact is you don’t know much about me. With that said, keep my name out your mouth.”
“Now to Eli, man, every time I do an interview about you and somebody is about to, it doesn’t even have to be an interview – everytime someone bad mouths you I’m the first to say – you can ask Skip Bayless, first thing I say is, ‘Listen. I got a homie that was doing time that remembers seeing Eli, Archie, Peyton, Cooper, he remembers seeing them at five in the morning every other morning on the school yard way before the students got there. I was the first one to back you up like, ‘He got two rings before his brother.’ And here you are saying you don’t watch or know [me]. That’s fine, that’s fine. I’m cool with you. I don’t care what you watch or listen to or nothing like that but man, it’s just hometown love. You ain’t got to do me like that. I didn’t say anything bad about you. So I ain’t going to say anything bad about you now. Still hometown love. I f*cks with you Eli. You ain’t got to watch much of me but you can listen. You probably need to the way you’ve been playing. You probably need to bang some Carter V before the game, just for consideration.”
Wayne circled back around and addressed any salty reporters feeling a way about him appearing alongside Odell for their must-watch Q&A.
“I think you, as in all of y’all, y’all are just a little upset that it’s not y’all who can get somebody with a number one album, thank God, and one of the greats of the NFL to sit down in a room together and get on camera and give such a great interview. And for you Frank, I heard you also said I didn’t say anything. I was just like a ‘Yes man,’ saying yes to everything. Frank, you should know that was edited. That was a real great interview by the wonderful Miss Josina. She asked me some things that made me open up as well. So the thing is when you’re someone who is talking, it doesn’t have to be on-camera. When you’re talking amongst people and you see they’re being real and they’re being genuine and that they’re being authentic. Nine times out of ten, if you’re true to yourself or whatever, you’re going to be the same way. Maybe that’s the reason why he opened up like that and he was being real because I was being real and Josina was just keeping it real. And I think that you guys are just upset that you weren’t on the other side of the table asking questions because I don’t think you’d even get a chance to do such a thing because if I or Odell is on the other side of the table with you, whoever you are, Frank, we probably wouldn’t even answer the questions. So to answer your question, why should you take him serious if he’s sitting next to Lil Wayne? To answer that, it’s because Lil Wayne is serious and I was serious when I said keep my name out your mouth, Frank. Thanks for getting Tha Carter V to all the fans the supporters. That sh*t crazy. I love that sh*t. What the f*ck though? Where the love go, Eli?”
“So to let you know, I don’t be paying no attention to you f*cks. I guess somebody hijacked or whatever. I didn’t know you still did that, take people’s social media stuff and act like those people and say lame d*ck sh*t. I want to say so many things right now but I don’t want to offend this sensitive society. So, I’m just gonna let that be that. I’m sure by now you guys know what I will say, do and condone and what I won’t say, do or condone. As far as you people who have nothing else to do with your time, that sh*t don’t bother me at all. Hack it again. Like Snoop say, you funky dog head b*tch you.”
The hip-hop community is completely rocking with Lil Wayne heading into the weekend. The biggest rap stars in the game have all stepped up to applaud Weezy F. Baby on dropping his new Tha Carter V album.
Montgomery County Judge Steven O’Neill also declared Cosby, 81, a “sexually violent predator” early Tuesday, ensuring that the former Cosby Show star must undergo monthly counselling for the rest of his life and report four times a year to authorities. As a result of the classification, he’ll also have to appear on a sex-offender registry sent to schools, neighbours and victims. The judge denied Cosby’s legal team’s request for bail pending appeal.

The sentence means that Cosby, once known as “America’s Dad,” will spend at least three years behind bars and then will become eligible for supervised release, although that’s not guaranteed. According to journalist Bobby Allyn who was in the courtroom, the judge will not grant bail and the comedian is expected to be taken away to a cell shortly. (Yahoo! Entertainment)
BREAKING: Pennsylvania judge sentences legendary comedian Bill Cosby to at least 3 years in state prison.
"I'm not permitted to treat him any differently based on who he is or who he was," said Judge Steven O'Neill.
The actual sentence imposed on Bill Cosby is 3-10 years in a state prison. That means 81-year-old Cosby will serve at least 3 years behind bars. After 3 years, he would become eligible for supervised released, but there is no guarantee he would be released them.
Mr. Cosby, 81, had been convicted in April of assaulting Andrea Constand, a Temple University employee at the time of the assault, who had looked upon him as a mentor but ended up being one of the dozens of women who have accused him of acts of predatory sexual abuse. Nine of those women and Ms. Constand were in the Montgomery County Courthouse to witness the sentencing by Judge Steven T. O’Neill. Ms. Cosby’s wife, Camille, was not. (New York Times)
