@diawboris: No worries pop only one glass of wine and daily workouts!
A couple of months before [Dwyane Wade’s] official date to go down the aisle, which happened at a home in Miami Saturday, his fiancée, the actress Gabrielle Union, 41, told Us Weekly that their wedding planning was going smoothly thanks to her betrothed.
“He realized that I was trying to turn it into a frat party with K-cups and beer pong, and he took over,” she said. “He really Kanye’d himself and really doubled down, and it’s his princess day, and I’m just along for the ride.”

|LeBron:||It was either pancakes or chocolate chip cookies and ice cream.|
|CNN:||Did you go to bed dreaming of pancakes that you could not have?|
|LeBron:||What? All the time. I had the cookie monster chasing me a few times in my dreams.|

Sometime in February, on the night before a game, team management called an emergency meeting. As I cleaned the dirty snow from my shoes and shuffled into the building, I passed by the Russian news reports on the televisions in the janitorial staff’s office, and exhausted the limits of my rudimentary Russian skills to decipher their propaganda. “Something-something terrorism, something-something Americanski-Europeaski something,” said the reporter. The janitors muttered in assent. There were images of tires burning and smoke rising. The protests in Kiev had turned violent, the main square was burning, and for the first time since the crisis began people had been killed in broad daylight.
Though the league’s governing body had successfully ignored politics up until then, it was suddenly faced with the terrible optics of playing basketball games while civilians were being shot in the streets by government security services. It was decided that the next day would be a national day of mourning in remembrance of the people who were killed. Our next game would need to be postponed for a few weeks, but all of the weekend games would be played as scheduled. “Don’t worry,” the club’s vice president said. “This will give them enough time to clear these troublemakers from the streets, and the season will proceed normally.”
The next day, more than 80 people were killed.

NBA All-Star Russell Westbrook will make a guest appearance on Nickelodeon’s new show, “Henry Danger,” for an episode set to air in November.
Westbrook, a point guard for the Oklahoma City Thunder, will play “Shawn,” who claims to be only 13 years old when he joins Henry’s basketball team … but seems much older.

Finally got around to reading this and it’s amazing. Some quotes:
Some of Kobe’s favorite topics of conversation include: what Bryant read on Techcrunch the night before, the latest news on Buzzfeed and whether Katy Perry is a genius businesswoman or just a plain genius. (Bryant has been a longtime admirer of Perry’s and was nervous when he met her for the first time recently, when both happened to be dining at Chateau Marmont in Los Angeles.)
Of late, Bryant has become obsessed with obsessives, and he devours biographies of iconoclasts. Often he’ll divulge some factoid like, “Did you know that Leonardo da Vinci didn’t break onto the art scene until he was 46 years old? Forty-six?!?” Bryant recently cold-called Apple exec Jonathan Ive and Oprah Winfrey, among others, asking for business advice.
At one point Gotham [Chopra, film director] introduced his seven-year-old son to Kobe. Afterward, Bryant turned to Gotham and said, “I’m thinking of creating one of those,” as if a son were a product.
when Chopra asked Steve Nash [to describe Kobe in three words], he said something different. After thinking for a moment, Nash answered, slowly, in three beats: “Mother . . . f——— . . . a———.” Kobe thought this was awesome.
Read it to the very end. The last story about Kobe playing one-on-one at the basketball camp is the most Kobe thing ever.
