LaVar Ball took the media into the spin zone yet again on Sunday as he stated his boy, Lonzo, would not lose twice in the same week. A very bold prediction considering the Lakers, who fell to the Pelicans 119-112, have dates with the Wizards, Raptors and Jazz the rest of the week.
Wizards center Marcin Gortat certainly isn’t buying what LaVar is selling, as he let everyone know Lonzo is in for a 48-minute torture session against John Wall:
man….. pleaseeeeee!!! @JohnWall will torture him for 48min
Not sure about the second statement, but yes, Lonzo will likely have some issues against Wall on Wednesday. It won’t be anything like what Patrick Beverley did to him, but multiple poster dunks have to be in play.
Lonzo doesn’t need any more torture, he has three more dates with Beverley:
The stuntman, whose previous projects include Black Panther and Logan, suffered a fatal head injury after falling almost 25 feet onto a concrete floor. AMC immediately halted production on the series, but Bernecker passed away shortly after the incident at Atlanta Medical Center. The show later released a statement via Twitter, saying, «We are deeply saddened by the loss of John Bernecker. He will always be part of the TWD family. Our hearts go out to his family and friends.»
As the season eight opening of The Walking Dead concluded, a black and white title card revealed that the episode, «Mercy,» had been dedicated to Bernecker’s memory. The episode was also done in memory of legendary director George A. Romero, who died in July after a battle with lung cancer. Romero’s groundbreaking foray into the zombie genre paved the way for The Walking Dead, so it’s touching to see both him and Bernecker honored for their contributions to the series.
Utah Jazz legends John Stockton and Karl Malone haven’t balled together in like 14 years, but the two are still very much in sync. Well, I can’t be 100 percent certain on that but I’m pretty sure their bond is as strong as ever considering the dynamic duo is still living that flip phone life.
For real. Kay Malone did the Internet a huge solid by taking this marvelous photo of John and Karl working their ancient devices during the Auburn-LSU game. Don’t know about you guys, but these are the first flip phones I’ve seen in years:
Auburn choking away a 20-point lead is obviously the big headline from this game, but these flip phones are an easy 1A.
How far would you go to c*ckblock your teenager? Not as far as John Cena, probably. The philanthropic wrestler — who is engaged to Nikki Bella but has no real-life kids of his own — plays a doting helicopter dad in Blockers, an upcoming comedy from Pitch Perfect‘s Kay Cannon. Cena stars alongside Leslie Mann and Ike Barinholtz, who join forces to keep their three daughters from having sex on prom night after stumbling upon their suggestive text messages. The NSFW trailer contains classic one-liners like, «Let’s c*ckblock those motherf*ckers,» and «What would Vin Diesel do?» so yes, it’s worth watching (oh, Cena also chugs a beer with his butt, NBD). Check it out above before it hits theaters on April 6, 2018.
Here’s something you never see: a member of the college basketball media not only standing up to John Calipari, but putting him in a goddamn body bag. You know how well Cal uses the media for promotion and recruiting and basically anything else he wants. You see him sitting at that ESPN desk on draft night when all these recruits are watching. He bullies the media on the regular to get what he wants.
So today they were discussing the FBI investigation into college basketball. Cal obviously is trying to avoid that as best he can and cuts off Jerry Tipton, who comes back with the ether, big J style. It’s not “coach day”, it’s “media day” and he was getting that question in one way or another.
Of course, Calipari dodged it, but its about time one of these NCAAB writers stand up for themselves. As far as the FBI thing, it looks like UK is in the clear…for now.
Calipari says UK has not been contacted by the FBI, nor the NCAA, on the current investigation enveloping college basketball.

It’s no secret that John Legend and Chrissy Teigen have one adorable little girl on their hands. The couple, who tied the knot in Italy in 2013, welcomed daughter Luna in 2016 and have been blessing the public with sweet snaps of her on social media ever since. And if you follow Chrissy on Instagram, you probably thought her latest photo was of Luna at first glance, but upon further investigation (and, you know, reading her caption), the throwback snap is actually of John. We already knew that Luna is the «All of Me» singer’s mini me, but this photo proves that they are seriously twins. From the hair to the eyes to the nose, we’re willing to bet we would epically fail a quiz about telling them apart.
Pacific Rim Uprising might not have Charlie Hunnam or Idris Elba’s characters from Guillermo del Toro’s 2013 sci-fi action film, but that doesn’t mean the sequel looks any less epic. The first trailer for the upcoming movie, due out March 23, stars John Boyega as Jake Pentecost, one of humanity’s last hopes in the stand against «the monsters that destroyed our cities, and the monsters we created to stop them.» Charlie Day, Rinko Kikuchi, and Burn Gorman are set to reprise their roles from the original and will be joined by Scott Eastwood, Tian Jing, and Jin Zhang.
