NBA athletes beefing, word on the street, Tristan Thompson and LeBron James were at each others throats during their game, Sunday against the Indiana Pacers. LeBron who was voted MVP last year has been in the game close to 17 years, he’s a veteran and he doesn’t like to lose. Tristan Thompson on the other hand, has been in the game close to five years.
I get that this is the NBA and everyone wants to win. but when it comes to men, they are always in competition with each other even when they are on the same team. Why were the two ballers beefing? The Cavs forward Kevin Love shot a 3 pointer while Tristan was supposed to be guarding him. That’s when the beef between Lebron and Tristan began, allegedly the two began yelling at each other during a team huddle which is a no, no. LeBron was tad bit upset about Paul George, who hit 16 shots for the Indiana Pacers, what was Tristan doing? LeBron felt that Tristan wasn’t guarding Paul, the athlete was open on the floor too many times and he shouldn’t have been able to make those many shots.
Although the Cavs won the game by 5 points and double overtime, LeBron was still not happy with himself even though he made 41 points. He just felt he needed to guard Paul because he didn’t like the way Tristan was supposed to guarding the player. The two switched up and Tristan wasn’t happy with LeBron taking over like that. Tristan wasn’t playing, maybe his mind was on Khloe, but I would be a little pissed as well, if I allowed someone to make 16 points on me.
After, the team huddle, LeBron went in on Tristan as they were walking to the bench, Tristan clapped back at his teammate, as if he didn’t care who LeBron James was, but he should care. LeBron is a veteran and can play his a$$ off, Tristan is still learning the game, most men don’t like to take constructive criticism and that sounds like Tristan. When he can play on LeBron’s level, then he can clap back, for now, learn from the MVP.
I guess LeBron felt bad about his behavior during the team huddle and he apologized to Tristan, it takes a real man to admit their wrongs and to own up to their mistakes. After the game, LeBron felt bad about yelling at his team mate, he says he has to do a better job at handling his behavior on the floor and with his teammates. Tristan accepted LeBron’s apology but this could cause a major tiff as the two players continue on the same team.
Lebron James is only human, he bleeds red just like we do, we all do things we shouldn’t do and reflect later. He’s just passionate about the game and he has always been that way!!
Colin Kaepernick Graces The Cover Of GQ Magazine
Former NFL athlete Colin Kaepernick graces the cover of GQ Magazine and he looks good as HELL!! His Afro is everything, it makes him stand out and its important that he continues to follow his path, if you stand for nothing, you will fall for anything.
The former NFL player has a lot of support from his fans and even from quite a few celebrities. Ava Duvernay, who wrote the book “Queen Sugar,” which also a drama series on the network OWN produced by her, she was quoted by saying, “I’m just really honored to know him. He’s sitting there and I’m sitting there and I’m like, “Look at this brother—he’s doing better than any of us would’ve done.” A lot better. With a lot more elegance.”
Rapper J. Cole is always one to speak his mind and stand for issues, he is also quoted by saying, “And he wasn’t backing down. And he wasn’t afraid. He was just being honest. And it didn’t seem like he was looking for attention. It caught me off guard because, you know, nothing personally against him, I just didn’t know when I met him that the person with the biggest balls in sports would be him.”
And lets not forget the former baller’s beautiful girlfriend, Nessa who is a host and radio personality, she is quoted by saying, “I’m very fortunate that I have Colin next to me. It’s everything. We love each other, we care for each other, and we have to remind each other that, hey, we’re doing our part, we’re trying to make a difference.
I’m not much of a football fan but Colin Kaepernick is really making a difference, he won’t be silenced and the NFL needs to wake up, he has no plans of stopping his fight and with all of the people backing him up, the NFL may be in trouble. Wake up and the smell the coffee, its already burning. I respect him as a man, not just a black or white man, just a man who will not be silenced.
This what the baller posted on his Instagram: “Kaepernick@will not be silenced”
NFL’S Antonio Cromartie’s Reality Show
NFL Antonio Cromartie is currently a free agent, he has played for 11 years and now he’s on a break waiting to see if he would get picked up. In the meantime, the professional baller has 14 kids and 1 on the way with his current wife Terricka. Did ya’ll hear me? 14 damn kids, that’s a whole lotta kids, can he even take care of 14 kids and a wife?
I guess he can afford 14 kids and a wife, his net worth is 12.5 million dollars, talk about making coins, oh he’s good. He allowed the cameras in his home because he wanted to show the world that he isn’t just a professional athlete but he’s a husband and a father as well. He wants us to believe that his family is normal, but with 14 kids, how normal could that be?
“We’re just a large family that has a lot of fun with each other. We’re a very loving family,” Terricka tells PEOPLE. “Although my husband played in the NFL for such a long time, he’s a very present dad. We just want the world to be able to see him in his prime, doing daddy duties and having fun with his kids.”
Antonio’s wife Terricka is pregnant and ready to pop, they are excited about this sixth child, they are having too many kids and they already have their hands full with five bad a$$ kids they have now, including a twin toddlers. These kids would drive me to drank, especially that Jagger, he is just too extra.
Behind every successful man is a smart woman, with all of the kids they have as a blended family, wife Terricka put her thinking cap on and came up with the idea for the show, but Antonio, was a little apprehensive about allowing the world and the cameras into his home and his personal space. But, something or someone obviously changed his mind because they now have a reality show.
“I was hesitant just for the simple fact of bringing the kids on TV — exposing our family,” say Antonio. This is something my wife explained to me that she wanted, to show our family dynamic and how relatable we are. Once she explained it to me I was fully on board and it’s been a great experience.”
“The kids love it! Everything went as planned and went smoothly as possible. They had really big personalities to begin with. But now it’s a matter of them trying to outdo each other … I think it’s kinds just built their personalities up,” Terricka says.
“It was just a great experience for them and I think the world will be surprised by just how big of a personality they all have but also how different they are.”
The family actually filmed over the summer for eight weeks, and with Antonio on a break from football, he really learned how to be a hands on father which was difficult for him at first but he got it together. It wasn’t easy but he did the best he could with his children while his wife was expecting their 6th child together, so that means he has 8 other children out there? Damn, his wife is a good one, 14 kids is way too many kids for any woman to handle.
