The NBA landscape is changing. Players will either have to adapt or find themselves out of work, or in situations that aren’t conducive for their career progress. NBA veteran Dorell Wright was faced with a huge decision this summer in free agency.

After spending two seasons with the Portland Trailblazers, taking on the role of stable bench vet – but receiving little playing time, despite stepping up when his number was called – DWright had to choose this summer between taking a veteran minimum deal – which comes with the unknowns of playing time and fitting into a new system – or he could leave the NBA and head overseas to China and play in the CBA.

I had a chance to talk to Dorell about his decision to sign with the Chongqing Soaring Dragons, taking back the reigns of his career, and the importance of his upcoming charity weekend.

Dwright
JM: What’s it like for the “new age of basketball” and impact on mid-level players? Why is overseas more attractive?

DW: It’s more attractive because you know what you’re going to get; Great fans, good basketball, playing time and another means to support your family just like if it were in the States. The loyalty of the Chinese fan base definitely deserves great talent and great basketball.

There’s a lot of competition within the NBA, younger guys are coming for your spot year after year. The CBA provides an opportunity to showcase my skill set. I have a lot of gas left and plenty to offer to the game (basketball). The possibility to come back to the NBA is always an option. For now I’m excited and focused on what lies ahead for me in the CBA.

JM: You have your clothing line, Scrapes & Gravel, what does it mean for your business and personal player brand to make the move to the CBA?

S&G3 s&G-Richard scrapes-Gravel

DW: It means a lot, and had a great deal to do with my decision to make the jump. As someone who’s respected in the fashion industry by my peers and fans, I’m hopeful Scrapes & Gravel will get a lot of great exposure in China. It’s something new and stylish that transcends cultures, as all fashion does.

As for my personal brand, there’s an opportunity for me to become a franchise player in the CBA. Guys like Stephon Marbury, Pooh Jeter and Bobby Brown have shown the potential for American players to take CBA teams to new heights.

Dwright-Charity-Flyer

JM: Your foundation, The DWright Way Foundation, is having it’s 10th annual friends and family weekend, why is it important to continue the efforts of DWWF despite your departure from the NBA?

DW: No matter where I’m living or playing the inner city communities, the underserved youth and the less fortunate are still very important to my family & I. The impact my foundation has had over the years, has left an impression not only on those we served but myself and family. It’s an awesome and humbling feeling to give back.

Wright led the NBA in three-point shooting during his time with the Golden State Warriors and was a member of the 2006 Miami Heat championship squad.

Dorell’s new adventure begins next month, the CBA’s season wraps in late February- early March depending on playoffs. There’s a possibility he could return to the NBA after that and provide a team with his long range shooting heading into the playoffs.

Matt Barnes’ name has been ringing bells the last couple of weeks after he leaked deets that he and pop star Rihanna were developing a friendship.

Ri doesn’t seem to be a fan of chatty pattys – shout out to Damon Dash – and took to her Instagram account to shut Matt down. Matt’s former teammate, Glen “Big Baby” Davis, had his back and stated on the record that Barnes and Ri were “friendly” in some capacity.

Now Matt himself is speaking on Ri’s diss. He’s trying to be a gentleman and not get into the details, but is admitting that he probably should’ve kept the situation to himself.

“You live and you learn. When you’re in a situation like this and, you know, you just learn. You just got to keep stuff to yourself obviously,” Barnes said. “But the way I’m putting it right now, I’m too grown to lie, you know what I mean. It is what it is, I’m going to let this blow by like everything else blows by.”

“I just smiled. I just smiled, that’s it,” Barnes said. “What can you do? At the end of the day we’re all grown-ups. Like I said I’m too grown to be lying about stuff but life is life. You live and you learn.”

“In life in general, there’s no need. I’m grown,” Barnes said. “My upbringing just doesn’t allow me to have that kind of stuff in it. Life, sports whatever it is I’m just about the truth. I’m always going to be me, even if you know sometimes my mouth gets me in trouble. I’m always going to be me, because I speak on things I feel passionately about. So love me or hate me I’m going to be me regardless.”

Rihanna is clearly over it, she hasn’t posted anything to Instagram since she ethered Matt.

Break ups are hard. Especially when you have to watch your significant other moving on with someone whose in the same line of work as you.

That’s what’s apparently happening to former NBA star Lamar Odom. LO seems to still be having a hard time moving on from his ex-wife, Khloé Kardashian. In a recent interview, Lamar said that he and Khlo are forever. That any man attempting to date her is wasting his time because Lamar and Khloé are soulmates.

“A misunderstanding between me and my wife became public. It’s hurtful. That woman is my wife. Without the ring on my finger. [Even] with her picture being taken with another man, that woman is my wife.”

“She’s [my] soul mate,” Lamar told the mag in his rambling interview. “I can’t control it. We’ll never part. I would never consider myself serious with another woman. To sum it up, if a man is attempting to court Khloé, he’s probably wasting his time.”

Lamar also said that seeing Khloé with other men “is weird. And the weirdest part about it is because I really know how she feels about me.”

That sounds stable.

Khloe-James-Harden

For her part, Khlo has been seen with Houston Rockets all-star James Harden since June. The two have been spotted on vacation in Hawaii, hanging out in Vegas and of course James has been at a few Kardashian/Jenner family gatherings.

Most recently Khlo jetted off with James to Houston to start early celebrations for The Beard’s 26th birthday.

Ciara sat down with CBS This Morning on Wednesday. Naturally the conversation turned to her relationship with Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson.

Ciara has been catching heat from her ex-fiance, rapper Future, and fans because of her decision to allow Wilson around she and Future’s one-year old son.

Russell-Wilson-Ciara-Baby-Future

Many felt it was too early in her relationship to have Baby Future around Russell. Ciara says that this is a double standard. She pointed out that Future has four children and she was around them early into their relationship. She also says she attempted to set up a meeting between Future and Russell but Future declined.

Ciara also goes on to discuss she and Russell’s decision to practice celibacy. Cici says it’s difficult, but great sex would just be the cherry on top of their relationship.

I think Future’s ego is a tad bruised that Ciara upgraded to a guy richer than he is.

As a woman, you have to be really selective in deciding which friendships are worthy of being displayed publicly. There’s still a double standard when it comes to women and dating. A man being linked to several women is a good thing, for women it’s something else.

Rihanna is a superstar who tops several men’s dream list. Recently former LA Clippers star Matt Barnes has been dropping hints that he and singer Rihanna have a special friendship.

Rihanna denied Matt’s claims on her Instagram. Since then Matt’s former teammate Glen “Big Baby” Davis has stated in interviews that Barnes KNOWS Rihanna. Davis appeared on ESPN’s “His & Hers” and told Jemele Hill and Michael Smith “He (Barnes) REALLY knows her,”  putting emphasis “KNOWS” several times.

Cowboys-Rams-fight

Seems as if members of the St. Louis Rams and Dallas Cowboys forgot yesterday was just practice. The two teams were involved in a fight during their joint practice session that included star receiver Dez Bryant getting punched in the face.

The sideline-clearing brawl went down at Cowboys training camp. Dez was on the sideline talking to Cowboys’ owner Jerry Jones when the fight started. Dez ran to the action – without his helmet – and took a blow to the face from Rams cornerback Imoan Claiborne – an undrafted- rookie-free agent.

Dez reportedly was doing a lot of talking to Rams players.

 

We’re talking about practice!

Rihanna might be every athlete’s dream girl, but she plays no games when it comes to these athletes public thirsting. Bad Gal Ri has a history of setting the pros straight if they happen to overstep their boundaries. The latest to feel Rihanna’s sting, Memphis Grizzlies’ forward Matt Barnes.

Barnes implied that the two were dating, so Rihanna took to Instagram to set the record straight on Sunday. His former teammate Glen Davis says that Matt is obsessed with Ri.

 

But before Matt, a few other athletes that got hit with the verbal chin check.

A few years back it was JR Smith who got smacked on Instagram. Ri made it clear Earl the III was not only wack, but DESERT thirsty.

rihanna-jr-smith-IG

Rihanna also politely declined Washington Redskins’ receiver DeSean Jackson.

 

And then there was that time when she unleashed on former NBA center Andrew Bynum.

In 2010 Rihanna was asked what the funniest rumor she had ever heard about herself was, she said someone said she was dating Bynum, and she considered that an insult.

And there was that time when former NFL wide receiver Braylon Edwards tried sending over an expensive bottle of champagne seeking to get Rihanna’s attention, and she sent the bottle back.

 

Apparently, if Rihanna is interested, she’ll let you know.

This weekend the NWA biopic “Straight Outta Compton” roared into theatres smashing the competition, to secure the top spot at the box office.

The Universal pictures released film took in $60.2 million this weekend playing on 2,757 screens, becoming the biggest-ever August debut for an R-rated movie. The film was shot on a budget of $29 million, by Friday it had the majority of that back.

The other film that opened this weekend was a 1960’s TV show reboot, “The Man From U.N.C.L.E.” earned $13.5 million from 3,638 theaters. It cost $75 million to produce.

If you haven’t seen this film yet, it’s worth your coins on so many levels. Great story, excellent direction, and the cast of newcomers did their thing. As someone who grew up in LA during this era, the care and details in the story were compelling. Obviously the social themes attached to NWA’s hit song, “F the police” still resonate in 2015.

I only have two complaints. The actor that played Pac looked just like him, but I wasn’t really feeling his performance. The actor that played Snoop, sounded and acted like Snoop, looked like Kurupt though. He had an answer for that.

 

Congrats to the cast and crew. Dubs up for life.

Memphis Grizzlies forward Matt Barnes has been implying that he might have something going on with singer Rihanna for weeks. TMZ cameras caught up with Barnes at JaVale McGee’s softball game on Saturday, where Barnes said he and Ri are friends and it could “possibly” go further.

 

That apparently is a fabrication. Bad Gal Riri took to Instagram with a question, “Bish where?”

 

#bishwhere #thedevilisaliar #shesnotthatintoyou #shesnotintoyouatall #shesneverevenmetyou #thisactuallyhurtmyfeelings #defamationofcharacter

I guess Matt was trying to use the law of attraction, acting as if he already has what he desires.

Rihanna is hilarious.

It seems like, even if something was possible, Matt’s over-eagerness just killed the dream. Matt responded to Ri’s post with “haha wow” sounds like someone got played.

LeBron James is putting his money where his mouth is when it comes to his commitment to the children involved with his “I Promise”  campaign through his LeBron James Family Foundation charity.

King James has partnered with the University of Akron to give four-year scholarships to any child who completes his “I Promise” campaign.

The annual tuition is $9,500, so it’s a $38,000 commitment to each student who qualifies. There are currently 1,100 kids in the program, and 1,200 more are expected to be added in the next four years, according to the Akron Beacon Journal.

Quick math puts the total for 2,300 kids at $38,000 each at just over $87 million.

LeBron says being able to give back is the reason for what he does. Tat being able to reward hard work is important to him. While the specific criteria is still being put together, a high GPA is certainly going to be in the mix.

The first class will enter the University of Akron in 2021.

Lakers rookie D’Angelo Russell may have had his first Kobe Bryant awkward moment on Twitter Friday. Russell sent out a tweet, proclaiming retired NBA star Tracy McGrady as the GOAT.

This comes after saying Kobe was the Micheal Jordan of his generation. Kobe decided to weigh in and remind his rook that he’ll actually be PLAYING with The GOAT. At least as far as the Mamba is concerned.

 

That must mean that Kobe also enjoyed D’Angelo’s “Kobe” impression during rookie transition last week.

JR also posted Shirley’s ring, and a reminder that she WAS with him shooting in the gym, that’s why they now have his and hers matching Mercedes.

There’s been rumors swirling all summer that former Clippers-current Grizzlies star Matt Barnes has been quietly dating Rihanna. By dating, sources say the two have hung out a few times and are enjoying each others company. Nothing too serious.

 

TMZ Sports caught up with Matt’s ex-wife Gloria Govan, and she was totally cool with the idea of Matt possibly moving on with Rihanna. In fact, she said she’d be open to a double date if the timing was right.

Gloria also said dating another celebrity or athlete was not off the table, but the traits she’s seeking are different now because she’s a mom and will be looking for a guy that can be a father figure to her twin boys Carter and Isaiah.

 

Is there another Russell Wilson in the building?

Rihanna is a huge Clippers fan. Back in April, Matt made Ri his #WCW,

Matt-Rihanna

sometime after that I guess he made his dreams turn into reality. He recently appeared on Big Boy’s neighborhood where he shared that he’s dating someone whose more famous than him. But wouldn’t give deets. Big Boy then asked who he had a crush on, a Rihanna’s name came up.

 

Glad that Matt and Gloria seem to be on good terms after the split.

College football season is just around the corner. UCLA’s football program was expected to have two sons of hip-hop royalty on the roster this fall. Now it looks as if at least one won’t be in attendance. But it’s not the one you think.

Cordell Brodus, son of Snoop Dogg reportedly has quit the team before the season has even started. According to Scout.com Cordell hasn’t reported to UCLA’s fall camp and hasn’t contacted UCLA since camp started.

According to sources close to the situation, it was more than likely a matter of Broadus “wanting to do his own thing,” since his father had always pushed him to play football.

Meanwhile Justin Combs, the son of Sean “Puffy, PDiddy” Combs is back on the gridiron for the Bruins. The sophomore defensive back had some issues with UCLA strength and conditioning Coach Sal Alosi during the summer program- if you recall, Puff stepped in and ended up getting arrested – but it looks like that’s water under the bridge. Diddy posted “Go Bruins” on Instagram Friday, accompanied with a photo of Justin geared up.

You can now add $200 million dollar man to James Harden’s list of accolades. Harden will officially be making the switch from the swoosh to three stripes.

Adidas offered the beard $200 million dollars to sign, and per ESPN’s Darren Rovell Harden will begin a 13-year contract with the company starting October 1st.

Harden never had a signature shoe during his six years with Nike. Adidas is once again trying to shore up their position in the basketball market. They are currently third in the U.S. behind Nike and Under Armour, with 3% of the basketball market. Harden’s deal tops Derrick Rose’s 12-year-$143-million deal signed in 2012.

As of now, Harden will average $16.78 million on his final three years of his deal with the Rockets and $15.38 million annually from Adidas. But if Harden hits certain benchmarks, it’s possible he will earn more annually from Adidas than the Rockets.

And he’s dating Khloé Kardashian. Expect The Beard to be everywhere.

For the last two years or so, we’ve watched former NBA star Lamar Odom’s marriage and personal life descend into chaos. On Wednesday reports surfaced that Lamar showed up to Khloé Kardashian’s 6 AM spin class at Soul Cycle in Beverly Hills to harass her.

lamar-khloe-soul-cycle

Lamar ran into TMZ cameras later, where he not only disputed the idea that he stalked Khloe, he also let his feelings be known about the outlet that he believes is interested in tearing black men down.

On stalking Khloe:

Lamar said he lives in Vegas now, the only way he could’ve “guessed” where she would be is if the situation was prearranged. He also said how heartbreaking it is that people know the truth and would allow that story to persist.

On TMZ as a media outlet:

Lamar said that TMZ has stripped everything from him, his life, his confidence, etc. That because of everything he’s gone through, he couldn’t even get hired at Home Depot. He also gave the warning that if it happens again, he’ll expose everything.

I feel for Lamar and the situation he’s currently in. But I also wouldn’t put that blame solely on TMZ.

With the release of NWA biopic “Straight Outta Compton” just days away, the surviving group members have naturally been on a promo tour. While most of the conversation has been nostalgic about the group’s trailblazing rise to fame – highlighting in part how the controversial hit ‘F**k tha Police” is still relevant in 2015 – there is a segment of people that want you also to remember the violence and misogyny the group’s era ushered into rap.

In a cover story interview for Rolling Stone magazine, Dr. Dre was asked about his personal history of violent behavior towards women.

1035x1407-R1242_Digital-(dragged)

In 1990, following Ice Cube’s bitter split with NWA behind money, there was a local video show that would air on Fox 11 in LA on Friday nights called Pump it up, the host was a female rapper named Dee Barnes.

Producers had Dee interview both NWA and Ice Cube separately and then edited the footage together. This was viewed as a diss by Dre and NWA. When Dre and Dee finally saw each other again, in January of 1991, it was at a music industry event in LA. Dre proceeded to savagely beat her. Dre reportedly body slammed her even chasing her into the women’s restroom, before people were finally able to get him off of her.

Barnes filed assault charges plus a $22.75 million lawsuit against Dr. Dre. The outcome ended up being a private settlement and Dre pleading no contest to the assault charge. He was fined $2,500, placed on two years’ probation, and ordered to perform 240 hours of community service.

In an interview with Rolling Stone in 1991, Dre, Ren and Eazy all showed no remorse for the situation.

Ren says, “she deserved it – b*tch deserved it.” Eazy agrees: “Yeah, b*tch had it coming.”

The incident isn’t included in the film.

Dre’s longtime ex-girlfriend and son Marcel’s mother singer Michellé has also spoken about the alleged beatings she took from Dre back in the day.

“I had five black eyes, I have a cracked rib, I have scars that are just amazing. It was normal. Everybody that knew, it was the norm,” she said. “When he gave me my very first black eye, we laid in the bed and cried. He was crying and I was crying because I was in shock, hurt and in pain. I don’t know why he was crying, but he said ‘I’m really sorry.’ And he said, ‘I’ll never hit you in that eye again, okay?’”

 

Although Dre and Michelle were together for at least five to six years, and she was signed to Eazy E’s Ruthless records where she had three hit singles in 1990, she is left out of the movie also.

When asked about those incidents during his interview, Dre acknowledged it was horrible, but claims he would never act in that way again.

“I made some f—–g horrible mistakes in my life,” Dre said. “I was young, f—–g stupid. I would say all the allegations aren’t true – some of them are. Those are some of the things that I would like to take back. It was really f—d up. But I paid for those mistakes, and there’s no way in hell that I will ever make another mistake like that again.”

Does the fact that he has a history of violence towards women have a factor in if you’ll go see “Straight Outta Compton?” Do you think people can really move on from that type of history?

The average person has a hard time putting together how professional athletes blow through millions of dollars, only to end their professional careers broke.

One member of the Detroit Lions has set a plan in motion that he hopes will work in his favor financially for the long run. Over the past three years, wide receiver Ryan Broyles and his wife Mary Beth live off of $60,000 per year, despite the fact that Ryan signed a rookie contract in 2012 worth more than $3.6 million as a second round pick.

The rest of his money has gone to investments, retirement savings and “securing Broyles’ post-football monetary future.”

Broyles and his wife drive Mazadas – he just recently bought a new one – and purchased their first home in Texas.

The average NFL career lasts 3.5 years, with an expected income of $6 million. Broyles has the right idea.

Amir-Johnson-Alana-JungBoston Celtics forward Amir Johnson is having baby’s mama drama. Johnson is being sued for an upgrade in child support by the mother of his two-year-old daughter Amelia.

25-year-old college student Alana Jung believes that she needs more money per month for child support. She’s asking for an increase to $50,000 per month. She currently receives $8,622 per month.

Her reasons for the increase request? Jung believes she’s actually entitled to $84,000 per month per her lawyer’s filing. She also believes that due to the frequency that athletes go broke, she wants to ensure that her daughter is living the same lifestyle as her father, but that the money is managed properly for her future.  Johnson just signed a two-year contract with the Celtics for $24 million.


Jung claimed in court documents that she and Amir lived together for 18 months, while Johnson played for the Toronto Raptors. Johnson reportedly described the situation as “a ‘casual sexual relationship’ and that they were ‘not in a committed relationship at any time.'”

Ouch. The timing of this comes as Amir has a new girlfriend, Daria Mitchell. Daria and Amir met in 2014 through his former teammate Lou Williams. Williams was dating Daria’s twin sister Rece.

Johnson has offered to up her monthly amount to $15,000 per month.

In my new book PostGame Pass, there is a whole chapter dedicated to baby’s mamas entitled “Baby’s mama Golden Parachute.” The book is available now on Amazon and Barnes and Noble.
