When is the last time Ja Rule made headlines?
Yes, it's been quite some time since we have heard anything from the former Murder, Inc. rapper. Just like most artists from the past, we tend to find them and their unsolicited opinions on Twitter. Ja Rule pulled a tweet and delete Monday about the notorious Michael Jordan crying meme.
Here is the appropriate Jordan face for this moment.
Once Twitter detectives got a whiff of Ja's inaccurate tweet, the true comedy began.
Ja Rule was just joking. Besides, who expects to be taken seriously when putting a $ AFTER the number? #JokesOnUs 😂😂 pic.twitter.com/cAKj1FNN8S

Ja Rule wore a durag for 95% of his rap career but had zero waves to show for it.

I hope that Crying Jordan tweet doesn't hurt Ja Rule's gig as a Fox Business analyst... pic.twitter.com/Uj8lLtYupe

For years and years, we've heard that LeBron James would be succeeding Michael Jordan to star in a sequel of the film Space Jam. Purported casting rumors and fake movie posters appeared all over to the point where this "news" was on its way to becoming an urban legend. The speculation intensified when LeBron and his company Spring Hill Entertainment signed a deal with Warner Bros. in 2015
The film was officially confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter on Monday that LeBron would be the film's star and that Fast & Furious 6 and Star Trek Beyond's Justin Lin will be the director. Lin is also co-writing the film with Andrew Dodge and Alfredo Botello.
The report doesn't speak of a plotline yet, but how cool would it be to see players like Kevin Durant (who was also often speculated to headline the film), Dwayne Wade, Steph Curry, John Wall, Carmelo Anthony and others appear like Charles Barkley, Patrick Ewing and Mugsy Bogues appeared in the first film?
There is no word yet on when the film will start production or a timeline for its release.
90s kids, it's time to get in formation!

Despite the hatred you might have absorbed through being in contact with internet trolls and the shaky basketball knowledge you picked up from Skip Bayless, LeBron James is still the sports hero of the Millennial generation. Not convinced? Check out the facts below.
LeBron dominates his field. “Numbers don’t lie” says the anonymous owner of Tidal. ESPN releases a new stat that LeBron broke almost any time he touches the hardwood. I won’t bombard you with numbers because you have Google, but peep this comparison to legends from last year.
LeBron is the archetype of the high school-to-pros era. He left prom and went to the NBA to become Rookie of the Year and get $90 million from Nike. Did you need a hall pass from your teacher so you could go be on the cover of Sports Illustrated? Didn’t think so.
LeBron is savvy on social media. He tweets his thoughts, lets us know what music he likes and takes selfies like any hip Millennial. We get a lot of glimpses into the life of King James via social media. We even saw him like a picture of an IG honey after a tough loss, and that made him even more human in our eyes.
LeBron stays woke. At the height of his career, he spoke out against Donald Sterling’s racist comments and wore an “I Can’t Breathe” t-shirt to protest the unjust murder of Eric Garner.
LeBron has a zillion endorsements & iconic trademarks. Witness, King James and the baby powder toss before games are all things we’ll remember about James, just like our older siblings had with Michael Jordan's Air Jordan and tongue-out-while-hooping trademarks. According to Forbes, James is bringing in $44 million a year off the court from endorsements.
LeBron is extremely clutch.
LeBron is a very visible family man. He married his high school sweetheart and has three kids. One of which is LeBron Jr., who is already receiving college recruitment letters at age 10. The apple didn’t fall far from the tree.
Forbes already told you LeBron was the most powerful athlete. The magazine ranks celebrities based on the amount of money they make, as well as a fame component, which is compiled of social media engagements and mentions in the media. “James’ influence lands him as the top athlete on Forbes’ Celebrity 100. The only celebrity across all categories to finish in front of King James on Forbes’ annual tally is musician Beyonce.” - via forbes.com
LeBron's got an unblemished public record. *knocks on wood* LeBron has kept himself away from scandals, baby-mama drama and run-ins with the law. He’d be “America’s Hero” if he wasn’t a big black guy with tattoos from Cleveland, but that’s for another think piece.
LeBron's sneakers are that fire and he inspired the greatest Twitter video ever. See below:

After 18 months of dating a sports fanatic (and when I say sports fanatic, I mean he could be a commentator), I have learned a lot about men in general and specifically sports fans. Some women can watch sports on their own and make flawless commentary. I'm not that type of girl and I never have been really...until now. It took over a year for me but these stages can happen over the course of one season of football or may come to you after an NBA Playoff series, but it will happen nonetheless. What stage are you at in your relationships? Find out the 5 stages below.
Stage 1: Protest and Denial
You protest and claim to know nothing about football, basketball, soccer or said sport. You deny loyalty to any one team in particular or feign allegiance to a team that you follow because of a brother, ex or hometown preference. You may have never even been to a game or purchased a ticket yourself.
Stage 2: Fake Interest
I wont sugarcoat this. Sometimes you fake interest to be amenable and get to know your significant other when the relationship first starts out. It's fun to learn about their interests but if you are just not a sports girl, it's not going to happen over night. WARNING: Be careful of the bandwagon.
Stage 3: warming up to the takeover
Your social media and mobile apps become inundated with their team's content. To be honest, your best bet is to download the NBA or NFL Live app for up to date scores and game times. Get to know your boo's March Madness picks and set up a Google alert for his favorite players if he's involved with a Fantasy squad. If you're expecting your beau for a date and you get a notification that a playoff game just started or a major player was injured, be prepared to push that back or find the patience to deal with him constantly checking on the score or updates. Is this a big extreme? Yes, but remember you're dating a sports fanatic.
Stage 4: Genuine Interest
You start to recognize players and stay on top of team news and changes. You form a bond with your boo's team and sometimes root for them when you watch games. You might even plan a date around watching a game.
Stage 5: Engagement and enjoyment
You own your boo's team t-shirts and wear your jersey proudly for every game. In fact, you actually won't watch a game without some form of sports nalia. You're officially a fan and can carry on full conversations about why a particular player is overrated or what a team really needs to win. You know to always run the ball when Marshawn Lynch is involved and you know who's in the running for NBA MVP this year. You protest as to why Russell Westbrook is no longer up for the prize but understand that best team trumps best player sometimes.
With that said, acceptance does not signify a defeat on your part. It actually provides a great opportunity for you. For one, you know what to buy your honey for every birthday, holiday and anniversary and two, you can leverage your new interest into future Beyonce tickets and shopping trips or whatever else your heart desires. That's what relationships are all about anyway; reciprocity, balance and building yourself through your mate.
