Russell Wilson shared an amazing piece of information on Sunday with pastor McPherson of The Rock church in San Diego, ca. about his relationship with singer Ciara. The couple has decided to abstain from having sex. At least for the time being.

Russell revealed that God told him to lead Ciara. He also says he knew before he met her that they would date. Russ says he met Ciara about five or six months ago. The two were first spotted last April attending a Seattle Mariners baseball game, before their first official outing as a couple at the White House.

 

“God brought us to bless each other”

“And so I’ll never forget: She was on tour, she was traveling, and I was looking at her in the mirror. I was sitting in the dressing room, and she was getting ready to go, about 15 minutes before she went on stage. And she was sitting there, and God spoke to me and said, ‘I need you to lead her.’ And I was like, ‘Really? Right now?’

“He goes, ‘I want you and need you to lead her.’

“So I told her right then and there, what would you do if we took all that extra stuff off the table and just did it Jesus’ way?”

I think it’s sweet and important that they want to show that you can take the time to get to know one another before bringing sex into the equation.

Dwyane Wade had 30 minutes to kill while chilling on vacation in the Bahamas. He decided to answer a few questions from his Twitter followers.

The questions centered on his durability, him betting on himself by taking a one-year $20 million deal with the Heat, and responding to one fan who suggested Lebron James carried him.

 

On LeBron “carrying” him:

He also said he would have no problem playing with Kobe.

Florida State back-up quarterback De’Andre Johnson was arrested and charged with misdemeanor battery after getting into an altercation with a woman in a bar.

The video was released by the State Attorney’s Office, and shows Johnson at a bar in Tallahassee named Yiannis on June 24th. Johnson and the woman appeared to be arguing about spacing at the bar. The woman threw a punch at Johnson, and also appeared to be kicking out at him. Johnson then threw a punch which reportedly left the victim with a black eye, a bruised cheek and cut upper lip.

The video is graphic.

 

Florida State has suspended Johnson indefinitely.

Serena Williams defeated her older sister Venus Monday to advance to the quarterfinals of the 2015 Wimbledon tournament. This marked their 26th career meeting. Serena won the match in a 6-4 and 6-3 victory. Combined the two have won 27 Grand Slam singles titles.

Serena wasn’t her usual vibrant self after the win. She spoke about the awkwardness in playing her best friend:

“It’s hard to feel excited about (beating) someone you root for all the time no matter what and who you love so much and she’s your best friend in the world,” Serena said. “It’s never easy but you just play for the competition and enjoy the moment.”

Serena also posted this message to Instagram following her victory.

There’s nothing I would not do for this brave inspirational woman @venuswilliams how fortunate I am to have u as my sister. 💋❤️ #sisters

This win extends Serena’s Grand Slam winning streak to 25 matches. If Serena holds on to win Wimblesdon, she will hold all four major titles at once. The last time she did that was in 2003.

And in case you forgot that Serena is the one, a quick throwback to the weekend when the crowd was booing Serena and she told them “don’t try me.”

Lou-Williams

The NBA free agency train keeps chugging along. With the Lakers striking out in the LaMarcus Aldridge lottery, they’ve made moves to ensure this off season isn’t a total bust.

The Lakers and Sixth Man of the Year guard Lou Williams have agreed to a three-year-$21-millon deal.

Williams had a career year last season with the Toronto Raptors, averaging 15.5 points and 2.1 assists, earning him the NBA’s Sixth Man of the Year award.  

LouWill thrived off the court too. Drake dropped a whole song about him on “If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late” entitled “Sixth Man.”

Lou was a hot topic on social media as well, because of his unique relationship with two girlfriends.

That situation didn’t last too long for obvious reasons.

Does this mean a Nick Young trade is on the horizon?

The Lakers are also on the verge of a trade with the Indiana Pacers that will land the purple and gold, big man Roy Hibbert. He comes with a $15.5 million contract for next season.

Houston Rockets star James Harden and rumored boo Khloe Kardashian were spotted together again in Las Vegas on the fourth of July.

For weeks there have been reports that the still-married Khloe Kardashian and The Beard are a couple. The two were spotted hanging out in Hawaii a few weeks ago, James was also at Staples Center for Khloe’s brother-in-law Kanye West’s surprise birthday party. James was also spotted at Khloe’s birthday bowling party at Pinz last weekend, and now they were spotted in a cabana at Encore and later Saturday night at Drai’s:

 

 

Per The Daily Beast.:

“The two were seen partying and looking quite couple-y together at the Encore Beach Club in Las Vegas on July 4th, taking in a DJ set by Zedd.”

The interesting thing in all of this, this is the second guy Khloe has started dating that is linked to Kim’s ex BFF, rapper Trina. Khlo money was recently linked to rapper French Montana who was dating Trina right before he and Khloe hooked up. Trina also dated Harden while he was still playing for the Thunder.

The Western Conference has been stacked for years. NBA free agency in 2015 continues to shift the powers around in the West.

For the past two years, the Portland Trailblazers looked like one of the young upstarts collecting pieces to snatch the crown. But the Blazers now are in rebuilding mode after four of their five starters from last season opted to move on to other teams.

LaMarcus Aldridge announced on Saturday that he would be signing with the San Antonio Spurs for a max four-year-$80 million deal. Coupled with that news are several reports out of Portland that LaMarcus was jealous of the marketing focus on Damian Lillard, and the team was divided into two camps.

LaMarcus reportedly distanced himself from the team, even taking his own flight home from Memphis following the Blazers loss in the playoffs.

Joining the Spurs sets the stage for several shots at the NBA title. It’s also a team that doesn’t focus as much on individual success or over the top marketing efforts.

Another casualty of LaMarcus’ departure, Blazers assistant coach Kim Hughes. In a June 27th interview, Hughes stated that the team was in rebuilding mode and LaMarcus wasn’t coming back. He was fired some time after those statements were made.

Sometimes there’s a price to keep it 100.

The Seattle Seahawks and Russell Wilson still haven’t reached a contract extension. While that’s being worked on, Russell is enjoying the attention his new relationship with singer Ciara is getting.

Last Thursday Russ appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live. Naturally Cici was brought up – the two have been dating for like 4 months- and Jimmy asked how Russ deals with Ciara being a fan of Tom Brady and the Patriots.

Russell handled the answer like a champ.

 

You know what the funniest part of this clip is that no one seemed to notice? The way Russell botched trying to throw out the line that everyone “lit” last summer, “about a week ago” from Bobby Shmurda’s hit “Hot n***a.”

Some things are just better left to the professionals.

DeAndre-Jordan-

The Clippers were dealt a huge blow on Friday when DeAndre Jordan made the decision to bypass the Clippers and sign with the Dallas Mavericks.

DeAndre Jordan rejected a 5-year $109 million deal from the Clippers, opting to sign with the Mavs for a contract worth over $80 million over the next four years.

Earlier in the season, there were rumors of a rift between Jordan and Clippers point guard Chris Paul. CP3 is said to have a leadership style similar to Kobe Bryant’s – which is why it would’ve been perfect had that trade gone through all those years ago, but I digress.

DJ reportedly felt like the Clippers weren’t using him to the best of his offensive ability. In his mind, the numbers he put up while Blake Griffin was out with injury showed his value on offense, and why he should be considered as more than a third wheel.

Doc Rivers helped rebrand DJ and give him confidence by pushing him to improve on the defensive end as a rebounder/dunker/defender. Jordan very rarely had plays ran for him.

He also felt more desired by the Dallas pitch. Chandler Parsons reportedly courted DeAndre with dinners leading up to the pitch, and Dirk Nowitzki even came off of his family vacation to attend the meeting.

Meanwhile, none of the players showed up to his meeting with the Clippers, even though DJ and Blake are BFF’s.

If I was DeAndre, I’d be slightly concerned as to who will get me the ball in the post. The Mavs don’t really have a point guard – Monta Ellis signed with the Pacers. But they have managed to put together a nice core that will consist of Jordan, Chandler Parsons, Dirk and Blazers former “3 flame thrower,” Wesley Matthews, who signed a four-year- $52 million deal.

between the Clippers ugly Game 6 melt down in the playoffs, that new ugly logo and now losing DeAndre, let’s hope for some more good news in free agency. LA basketball could be quite depressing next season in both the locker rooms at Staples Center.

Gabrielle-Union-Dwyane-Wade

If Gabrielle Union is dropping subliminals on Instagram, this one will go down as a classic. Gabby and her husband Dwyane Wade are on vacation in the Bahamas with Lebron James and his wife Savannah. The group is spending time on a $29 million yacht.

Thursday it was announced that Dwyane Wade and the Miami Heat agreed to a one year contract for $20 million. DWade opted out of the two-year deal he signed last summer, that would’ve paid him $16 million for the 15-16 season. Next summer is far away, but you have to wonder if Dwyane is thinking of joining LeBron in Cleveland next summer.

Lebron also opted out of his two-year deal with the Cavs. He is expected to re-sign with the team on a one-year deal, worth upwards of $20 million. The idea being to really cash out in the summer of 2016 when the cap goes up because of the TV rights deals.

Which brings me to Gabrielle’s Instagram post. In the photo it’s the two looking beautiful and lounging on the yacht. Her caption, “Looking good Lewis… Feeling good Billy Ray…”

 

That’s from an old Eddie Murphy movie from the 80’s called “Trading Places.” In the movie, two successful stock brokers bet $1 that they can turn a successful employee to a life of a crime and put a hustler from the streets in his place. Eddie Murphy and Dan Aykroyd are the marks, who end up coming together and out-hustling the hustle.

Kind of like what DWade and LeBron would be doing if next summer they found a way to team up in Cleveland.

 

Or it could just be a random Instagram caption.

San Diego Chargers tight end Antonio Gates, Dallas Cowboys linebacker Rolando McClain, and Jets defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson each received a four-game suspension for violating the NFL’s substance abuse policy.

Gates’ suspension comes after he tested positive for performance-enhancing drugs. The substance wasn’t listed but Gates released a statement saying he took a supplement that he didn’t realize was on the banned substance list.

“In an effort to recover from a long season and although I was unaware at the time, I regret to confirm that I tested positive for a substance that is currently on the NFL banned substance list.  As an NFL veteran and team leader, I should have done my due diligence to ensure that what I was taking for recovery was within the NFL guidelines.  I have always believed that ignorance is no excuse when it comes to these issues, and I take full responsibility for my actions.

Both McClain and Richardson tested positive for marijuana. The fact that they’re facing four-game suspensions means they were repeat offenders, already enrolled in the league’s substance abuse program.

The NFL and NFLPA recently made changes in the collective bargaining agreement that moved the threshold up for a positive test and reduced penalties attached for its use. That’s why last season Cleveland Browns’ Josh Gordon’s suspension was reduced.

In addition to those suspensions, Packers pass-rusher Datone Jones was suspended one game for either missing a mandated test or failing one.

Today begins day 3 of the 2015 NBA free agency period. Let’s make sure you’re all caught up with the signings and movements.

  • Dwyane Wade and the Miami Heat have at least one more year together. DWade took a one-year-$20 million deal. One of two things are happening, this is DWade’s final go round with the Heat, and next summer he goes to another team when there is ample cap space because of the TV rights deal that takes effect next summer. Or, he’s just waiting to cash out from the Heat next year.

Greg-Monroe

  • Ex-Detroit Pistons big man Greg Monroe bypassed the Knicks for the Milwaukee Bucks. Monroe agreed to a three-year-$50 million-max-deal. Some guys still care about winning and a quality team.

Ed-Davis

  • Ed Davis heads to the Pacific Northwest after spending last season with the Lakers. Davis agreed to a three-year-$20-million deal, as the Blazers continue to reshape their roster.
  • Former Dallas Mavericks guard Monta Ellis is headed to the Indiana Pacers. Ellis agreed to a four-year-$44-million-deal. Somehow, I think this is a step backwards for the Pacers, but we’ll see.

draymond-green-dantay-jones

  • The Golden State Warriors and Draymond Green will be together for five more years. Green agreed to a five-year-$85-million deal. Not bad for a guy that was making $880,000 in his first NBA deal.

wes-matthews

  • Wesley Matthews is headed to Dallas. Matthews and the Mavs have agreed in principal to a four-year-deal. The specific amount is still in progress as the Mavs try to secure the services of either DeAndre Jordan or LaMarcus Aldridge. Once those two deals are completed, you’ll see the B and C level free agents sign in other places too. Right now teams are in a holding pattern to see how much money they’ll have to make moves.

 

  • The Brooklyn Nets are adding Thomas Robinson on a two-year deal. He’ll reportedly make the minimum, and Shane Larkin is coming over from the Knicks for $1.4 million. In addition to that, the Nets also re-signed Brook Lopez and Thad Young per the New York Post.

Sending lots of love and light to Tulsa Shock star Skylar Diggins. The WNBA superstar has a torn ACL and will miss the rest of the season.

Diggins injured her knee Sunday during Tulsa’s match up against the Seattle Storm. Skylar posted her thoughts on the injury to Instagram.

Ever since I could remember, I loved the game of basketball. Once I discovered what it was, I was fascinated by it. I found my passion at 5 years old….I wanted to play ball! Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine the game could take me the places it has. I met some of my best friends and mentors, traveled the world, went to college for free, the list goes on and on…. I’ve never been forced to be without it, because I’ve always been healthy enough to practice and play! Until now…..a torn ACL is never something I thought would be a part of my story. But you know what they say?, “When man plans, God laughs.” This injury is one of my tests I had to go through to give my testimony in the end! Thank you for all the prayers, well wishes, and kind words. It really means a lot to me. This is a tough pill to swallow….but with God, and the support of my family, friends, and fans, how can I be NOT be positive. It just sucks that I have to learn to walk all over again……but I promise you, my NEW walk will be so glorious! #ShockTulsa


Gotta keep going…..

Rihanna-Bitch-Better-Have-My-Money

Sunday night we saw Rihanna causing a stir at the BET awards with several marketing stunts to promote the release of her new video, BBHMM.

Rihanna dropped the visuals for B*tch Better Have My Money at Midnight Wednesday night, to say it’s not safe for work is an understatement.

The video contains kidnapping, torture and nudity, plus a surprise reveal at the end of the 7 minute clip.

 

**Spoiler**

Ri kidnaps and tortures an “accountant’s wife.” If you recall, Rihanna sued her accountants in 2012 for “gross mismanagement.”

The video also is Bad Gal Riri’s first time directing. She said the concept came to her eight months ago.

 

On Wednesday, Rihanna was crowned as the most successful digital artist in terms of single downloads and streams, according to new figures from the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). Rihanna has accumulated more than 100 million gold and platinum song certifications, making her the only artist to ever break the 100 million mark.

Tidal held a fan event for the screening in LA Wednesday night.

Don’t act like you forgot…

Let the buzz begin. LeBron James, his wife Savannah and Dwyane Wade and his wife Gabrielle are all on vacation together in the Bahamas.

A fan spotted the group at the Atlantis hotel and snapped a few photos for Twitter.

With Dwyane Wade and the Miami Heat still in negotiations, some fans are worried DWade might take his talents elsewhere. I doubt Wade is going anywhere. I can’t see a huge market for his services, at the price he’s looking for from any team outside of the Heat.

LeBron-D-Wade LeBron-D-Wade-Vacation LeBron-D-Wade-Bahamas-Vacation

LeBron was spotted poolside over the weekend in L.A. with Kevin Love, before he agreed to a massive contract with the Cavs. Add that to why Heat fans are feeling a bit uneasy at the moment.

LeBron-Kevin-Love-Poolside

Oh, I forgot to mention that Chris Paul and his wife Jada plus Carmelo and Lala are there also.

We aren’t even at the end of day one in NBA free agency, and there’s already been over $2 Billion in contracts agreed on. If you missed this morning’s update, you can check that HERE Are you ready to get caught up with who went where?

Take a deep breath:

The Cleveland Cavaliers clearly believe they have the right formula. Owner Dan Gilbert has opened up the money vault for $230 Million. By the way, they haven’t signed LeBron back yet, Expect his deal to be in the $20 million range for one season. This is what everyone else has agreed to:

Cavs-Tape

  •  Tristan Thompson will be back for $80 million over 5 years.
  • Kevin Love liked what he saw from the bench during the playoffs, and decided to reup. Cavs give Love a five-year-$110 million deal.
  • Iman Shumpert also reupped with the Cavs. Shump agreed to $4 years for $40 million.

I Guess Dan Gilbert is over feeling like small markets don’t have an advantage. JR and Delly look to be the odd men out.

Tyson-chandler
The Phoenix Suns made moves. The Suns locked down center Tyson Chandler with a four-year- $52-million contract. Next they gave an extension to guard Brandon Knight, worth five-years-$70 million.

DeMarre Carroll surprised everyone and left the Atlanta Hawks for the north. Carroll will be joining the Toronto Raptors for 4-years-$60 million.

 

#WeTheNorth I will be playing for Toronto Raptors next year!!!! I’m Blessed for this Opportunity! #WeTheNorth

A photo posted by DeMarre Carroll (@demarrecarroll1) on

 

So far the Lakers are coming up short. Depending on whose version of events you believe, “sources” say the meeting between the Lakers and free agent power forward LaMarcus Aldridge didn’t go well. Kobe responded to those reports with a meme.

Ok Kobe…

Paul-Pierce

Meanwhile down the hall, the Clippers have brought “The Truth” back to L.A. Paul Pierce has agreed to a three-year-$10-million contract. Not only does this bring the Inglewood native back to his roots, it reunites him with the coach he won a title with in Boston.

Jimmy Butler accepted Chicago’s a five-year-$95 million contract, with a player option after year four. Always bet on yourself.

The San Antonio Spurs reached terms with Danny Green for a four-year-$40-million contract. They also traded away center Tiago Splitter to the Atlanta Hawks. Looks like they’re rolling out the red carpet for LaMarcus.

  • Former Toronto Raptors big man Amir Johnson will sign with the Boston Celtics for $24 million over two years.
  • Kyle Singler agrees to 5-year $25 million offer sheet with the Oklahoma City Thunder

Washington Redskins wide receiver DeSean Jackson’s BET reality show, Home Team debuted on Tuesday night. It features Jackson, his mother Gayle, sister Dreea and publicist Denise.

In the first episode we learned a few things. These are the five that stood out the most.

The first thing we learned is that DJacc is still holding on to his rap star dreams, while he’s living “The dream” as an NFL star. He is also about the turn up. We have the requisite shots of him in the club and the studio with the homies.

“I’m the one who’s risking my life on the field, so I feel like I have every right to enjoy my life the way I want to off the field,” he says.

While we wait for JaccPot records to blow up, DeSean also shares with us that he still has an issue with the way things went down with his former team, the Philadelphia Eagles, calling their tactics a “smear campaign:”

“When I was released by the Eagles, I feel they tried to paint a picture that definitely wasn’t true,” Jackson said on the show last night. “It was a slap in the face, coming off one of my best seasons in the NFL. The Eagles tried to blow me up. That’s cold how they did it.”

Jackson is referring to the rumors of gang ties that popped up last year as Chip Kelly and the Eagles prepared to cut him.

“That’s why I think they fired me,” he said. “Have I went to jail?…I ain’t done none of that.”

As expected, DeSean’s mom is very involved in his life as his mom-manger.

“Women try to dominate my life, but at the end of the day, I’m the boss and I’m the one that’s paying all the bills,” DeSean says.

Desean-Kayla

DeSean hadn’t told his mother that his girlfriend of a few months, Kayla, is pregnant. From the looks of the upcoming previews, his mother isn’t happy that a girl she’s never met is carrying her grandchild. She also asked DeSean if he is “sure it’s his” and if he’ll be having a DNA test done.

Yikes!

DJacc had a party Tuesday night to celebrate the launch of his show.

Check out the highlights

And don’t think DeSean is all play. He’s focused on his off season workout. He says there is no summer.

NBA free agency kicked off with bang early Wednesday morning, with the announcement that the New Orleans Pelicans and Anthony Davis had come to terms on a contract extension.

Davis has agreed to a five-year- $145 million deal with the Pelicans.

The Miami Heat have secured at least one of their free agents guards. The Heat and Gorab Dragic have reached an agreement on a max deal of five-years-$90 million according to Yahoo! Sports Adrian Wojnarowski.

Gorgan

 

The Portland Trailblazers are also making moves. They kicked off free agency by signing an extension with Damian Lillard, five-years-$120 million. They also signed free agent wing Aminu Al-Farouq to a four year, $30 million deal.

Lillard-NBA-Free-Agency

Other buzzings:

Corey Brewer spent most of last season with the Houston Rockets. Brewer is currently being courted by the Rockets, Celtics and Knicks.

Rudy Gay is reportedly trying to convince Rajon Rondo to come to the Sacramento Kings. Rondo’s value is currently down, many feel he quit on the Mavs during the playoffs. Rondo is said to be pursuing a one-year deal to rehab his image, and then cash out with the big TV deal in the summer of 2016.

The comedy that will come from a George Karl, DeMarcus Cousins and Rajon Rondo grouping would be classic.

NBA-Free-Agency-2015

At midnight Eastern standard time, NBA free agency begins. There have been all sorts of rumors circulating for impending free agents like DeAndre Jordan and LaMarcus Aldridge. Let’s get caught up to celebrate title aspirations and major money deals.

The Lakers are looking to make a huge splash in free agency for Kobe Bryant’s alleged last season in the NBA. As of June 30th, the Lakers are reportedly making attempts at both Clippers free agent big man DeAndre Jordan and Trailblazers big LaMarcus Aldridge.

Jeanie Buss, Kobe Bryant, Byron Scott, Mitch Kupchak and James Worthy will all be at the meeting the Lakers have to recruit Aldridge. He’s also scheduled to meet with the San Antonio Spurs. That meeting is expected to be attended by coach Gregg Popovich along with Tim Duncan and Tony Parker, per Yahoo! Sports.

Los Angeles Clippers center and unrestricted free agent DeAndre Jordan is expected to meet with the Dallas Mavericks, Los Angeles Lakers, New York Knicks and Clippers once the free agent period begins, reports USA Today’s Sam Amick. The Mavericks are the team considered likeliest to convince Jordan to leave Los Angeles, according to ESPN’s Tim MacMahon.

The Clippers used the hometown Hollywood factor to convince DeAndre to stay, by having actor Jamie Foxx join Jordan and Clippers’ President and coach Doc Rivers at a recent dinner.

  • Also said to be on the Lakers radar, Cleveland Cavalier free agent Iman Shumpert. Iman isn’t the only Cav who chose the player opt out. Both JR Smith and Kevin Love did also. Love is reportedly expected to re-sign with the Cavs. LeBron James, the force behind the Cavs resurgence back to the top of the Eastern Conference opted out too.
  • NBA playoffs breakout star Matthew Dellavedova is a restricted free agent as well.
  • The Miami Heat and Dwyane Wade will hit the negotiating table once again. In the summer of 2014, DWade signed a two-year deal with the Heat for 31.1 million. He left money on the table for the Heat to sign LeBron and Chris Bosh. This summer Wade is reportedly looking for a significant upgrade from the $16.1 million he would’ve received next season, if he didn’t exercise his player option.
  • The Chicago Bulls are reportedly not willing to gamble with losing restricted free agent shooting guard Jimmy Butler. The Bulls are expected to match any offer for Butler, and have reportedly given him a max qualifying offer of 5-years $95 million, causing him to “pause” his meeting scheudle with other teams.

• Dallas Mavericks small forward Al-Farouq Aminu is scheduled to visit several teams including the New York Knicks and Boston Celtics, reports TNT’s David Aldridge.

• The New York Knicks are the rumored landing spot of Detroit Pistons forward Greg Monroe and Portland Trailblazers guard Arron Afflalo per Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports.

• Memphis Grizzlies officials will be in Spain to meet with center Marc Gasol when free agency begins, reports 92.9 FM ESPN’s Chris Vernon. The Grizz are the only team Gasol is meeting with.

July 9th is the first day teams can officially sign free agents.
