Serena Williams’ World Tour Hits Its Last Stop at the U.S. Open

Yes, it is his girl’s tour

Serena Williams will bring her dominance to Queens, New York, as the 2015 U.S. Open begins today. Williams will begin the quest to complete the calendar year Grand Slam against 25-year-old Vitalia Diatchenko in the opening round.

The Russian tennis player is ranked as the #86 player in the world. Williams has already completed the Serena Slam–she’s the current title-holder of all four major championships–but winning this U.S. Open will put her in a place of dominance experienced few. Names such as Jordan and Tiger are among the only people who could compare to the sheer greatness taking place.

The final stop on the world tour starts in Queens today, but the legacy will reach far beyond center court. 7 pm tonight.

Lil Wayne Stops By ESPN First Take And Discusses Green Bay Packers, Tom Brady, LA Lakers, N.W.A. Movie And More

Lil Wayne has remained in the headlines all throughout 2015. Whether it is his current legal dispute with Cash Money Records, on again off again beef with Young Thug, or his “Free Weezy Album,” there is not a week that goes by without a Weezy siting on the web. With that said, Wayne has not be vocal on the interview front, being very selective as to whom he gives his time to.

Today, Lil Wayne made a return visit to ESPN’s First Take, where he joined Stephen A. Smith and Skip Bayless to discuss today’s hot topics in the sports world, but also delved into the entertainment foray as he spoke on the N.W.A. biopic.

A few take aways from the interview are that Wayne is still a die hard Green Bay Packers fan, he is apathetic toward Tom Brady‘s “Deflate-gate” situation, and still believes Kobe Bryant is one of the best players in the NBA currently.

See the video above and judge for yourself.

The Clippers are Trying to Get DeAndre Jordan to Renege on Mavs Deal & Come Back to L.A. [UPDATE: It’s Official]

UPDATE: According to ESPN sources, DeAndre Jordan has signed a 4-year, $88 million contract with the Clippers, after agreeing in principle to join the Dallas Mavericks last week.

The process of signing Jordan was no well-kept secret. The events of yesterday played out like a soap opera yesterday, beginning with ESPN reporter Marc Stein‘s announcement that the Clippers were flying down to Houston to attempt to make DeAndre Jordan change his mind about signing a 5-year deal with the Dallas Mavericks. Then there was the emoji battle on Twitter, reports that Jordan was crying during the Clips’ video presentation, and before you know it, the Clippers claimed they’d had a commitment.

Blake Griffin tweeted a picture of a chair holding a door closed, insinuating that they were indeed holding Jordan hostage until he was eligible to re-sign at midnight. Paul Pierce, who hasn’t yet played a game for the Clippers, tweeted “that’s why they brought me here,” with a picture of Jordan signing his Clippers contract with Doc Rivers grinning from ear-to-ear behind him.

Totally awesome.

ORIGINAL STORY:

ESPN sources are reporting that the Los Angeles Clippers are trying to convince their former center, DeAndre Jordan, to change his mind, not sign a long-term deal with the Dallas Mavericks tomorrow, and return to the L.A. Free agents are not able to sign deals till July 9. Marc Stein is reporting that point guard Chris Paul, with whom Jordan has had several reported issues–partially his alleged reason for leavingis “pushing” for DeAndre to change his mind. ESPN anchor Michael Eaves is reporting that prominent members of the Clippers organization, including Paul, Doc Rivers, Steve Ballmer and Paul Pierce, have flown down to Houston to meet with Jordan, with the goal of completing the deal by 11pm.

Jordan had agreed to a 4-year deal worth $80 million with the Dallas Mavericks last week, and aside from the reported Chris Paul drama, it was rumored that Jordan also wanted to be more involved in the offense. We’ll have to wait and see if Jordan will make one of the craziest move in free-agency history, but the next few hours will surely be a whirlwind.

Already, reports are trickling out from Jordan’s meeting claiming that he was so torn by the decision in front of him, he cried while watching the Clippers’ video presentation.

 

Wow. More updates as soon as we get them.

Lil’ B Confirms/Denies the “Based God Curse” on ESPN

The gifts just keep on coming

Lil B has successfully bestowed the belief that his “Based God Curse” is real, and active, on just about everyone in basketball media. Why? He gets results. No one that Lil B has “cursed” has found themselves in a favorable position towards the end of this year’s post-season, from Kevin Durant‘s foot injury and the Thunder missing the postseason altogether, to James Harden‘s bowing out of the playoffs in the Western Conference Finals in 5 games. LeBron James hasn’t been officially cursed, but Lil B has been very public with his disdain for James’ uncredited use of his signature cooking dance.

So, ESPN, adding more fuel to the fire, invited Lil B up for a short segment called Cursed or Not Cursed, in which Lil B confirms or denies whether or not Kevin Durant, LeBron James, James Harden and Marreese Speights are still under the “Based God Curse.”
