Blake Griffin about to start dunking again and I'm going to appreciate the finesse whole-heartedly.

Quoted @ShamsCharania

Blake Griffin has cleared free agency waivers and the six-time NBA All-Star is expected to sign with the Brooklyn Nets, sources tell @TheAthletic @Stadium.

Kyrie. Harden. KD. Blake. Joe Harris.

This lineup is going to cause problems...

Watching old games this AM & while some duos technically had more ‘success’ if were measuring off titles...

Think I’m taking this duo in any era; against anyone. It’s kind of crazy they were together near their respective peaks and the only thing really stopping them was... them

Quoted @ComplexStyle

During the late ‘90s and early 2000s, stylist Monica Morrow was dressing all of the most influential men in hip-hop.

Read about how she juggled working with artists like Jay-Z, Cam’ron, Wu-Tang, and more ⬇️

Monica Morrow doesn't do a lot of press, but she deserves her flowers! We spoke months ago and she had stories for days...including the time she had to knock on a bunch of doors to find Dapper Dan when he was underground.

"At some point, this league has to protect the players." -@Money23Green

This spotlights a debate: Teams are regarded as making “business moves” when trading players, but players are “selfish” if they initiate it?

'Player Empowerment' often gets misconstrued as something that's solely rooted in athletes trying to get over... but I think that empowerment truly helps them after the game. Gives them agency and ownership of their lives. It's bigger than the 'just the game'...

Quoted @FOS

Overtime is launching Overtime Elite, a basketball league for 16-to-18-year-olds.

Players get:
➖ $100K minimum salary
➖ Health benefits
➖ Equity stake in Overtime

If an athlete decides not to pursue basketball professionally, Overtime will cover college tuition up to $100K.

This is amazing. Empowering players starts early... amateurism never really made sense if everyone else can profit except the actual players.

I already have a team in mind that needs a re-brand completely. Plus, they might be up for sale...

Why not Jay-Z?

Quoted @APompliano

Jay-Z bought TIDAL in 2015 for $56 million.

Today he sold it for $297 million.

5.3x in about 5 years.

You better respect Jay-Z, the billionaire, as an entrepreneur.

First Ace of Spades and now this deal... I wonder if Hov is setting up the play to buy an NFL team?

Charlie Wilson sprinkle on some ad-libs and turn the record into a masterpiece.

A real legend in the game.

When your friends or family reach new heights or gain new accolades...not only congratulate them but let them know they deserve it, too.

Master P suiting up for two different NBA franchises as a side-hustle is the definition of 'believing in yourself'.

Nerds are ruining sports

I've said it before... but advanced stats is eerily similar to gentrification. Outsiders create a marketplace & formula that tells you why you aren't worth what you should be.

It's getting ridiculous.

Never spent a second in journalism school. Didn’t even know how to read a prompter when I first got to @Complex. Keep ya code solid & let God guide your steps; it’ll open a lot of doors for you.
