Hello, welcome to Shade Court, and no, I did not include Donald Trump’s Hitler-lite Time Magazine cover because I honestly believe I will disintegrate into a pile of material frustration if I have to write about that man today.
In a Business Insider editorial published Sunday evening, NBA phenomenon and all-around delight LeBron James enthusiastically endorses Hillary Clinton for president.
The members of the infamous Banana Boat crew have been a few of the most politically vocal major athletes of their generation. Back in 2012 LeBron James and Dwyane Wade led the Miami Heat in wearing hoodies in protest of Trayvon Martin’s death, and last weekend Carmelo Anthony used Instagram to call for his fellow…
What are the famous folk up to on our nation’s day of independence? Seeing as we’re liable to froth at the mouth with envy, do we even want to know? (We do.)
A comedic godsend, at least in the eyes of those who worship her, Amy Schumer is a current cultural beacon, and in many ways, a void-filler. So it’s fitting that her first major film is a rom-com. The hardest-to-reinvent Romantic Comedy—two words that instantly yield lowered expectations—seems at once in need of…
At just 13 years old, Mo’ne Davis is officially a Harlem Globetrotter.
Riley Curry and her sidekicks the Golden State Warriors celebrated their NBA Finals championship win with a parade around Oakland, California on Friday. Mid-party, as her dad Steph Curry posed with his trophy, Riley decided it was a good time to collect the confetti floating around. As one does.
On Tuesday night, Steph Curry and the Golden State Warriors bested LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers. Sure, they were the better team, but—I dare say?—they also had a better baby star in Riley Curry. Andre Iguodala might’ve won the trophy, but Riley is the real MVP, even if she was too tired to celebrate.
Last night, between watching Steph Curry and the Warriors lose to LeBron James and the Cavaliers, I caught ads for a new ABC drama called Quantico. It’s supposedly about a female FBI agent—though I think it’s really a soft porn? Maybe of the BDSM fantasy sort?
Ayesha Curry, mother of star baby Riley and wife of Golden State Warrior Steph Curry, wrote an open letter to sports fans and journalists alike who aren’t into her two-year-old acting like a two-year-old during her father’s NBA press conferences. In summation, Riley’s happiness is more important than yours so have a…
Steph Curry hits the court tonight with his Golden State Warriors team for the 2015 NBA Finals, and whether or not he beats LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers, it’s clear that Riley, star of babies, will make him feel like a champion.
Lauren Hill, the college basketball player who fulfilled her dreams of playing on Mount St. Joseph University’s team while suffering from an inoperable brain tumor, passed away today at the age of 19.
Does anyone else find it amazing that, after 19 weeks of Shade Court, there's still an enormous group of people who are still out there embarrassing themselves? I'm just kidding, that's not surprising at all. In this week's Shade Court, Matt Lauer tries to get back at Ellen, Drake's fans go H.A.M. on Chris Brown and…
Bill O'Reilly remains a fool on a soap box and this time he decided to throw respectability politics, racist stereotypes and what I'm sure he'll dismiss as "humor" at the son of Martin Luther King Jr. Instead of "I Can't Breathe" shirts, O'Reilly said protestors should wear "Don't Get Pregnant at 14" shirts. Because…
As you may know, last night, Duchess Catherine and her bloke Prince William attended one barney of a basketball match between the Brooklyn Nets and the Cleveland Cavaliers. After meeting (and then suffering through the sobering realization that they had nothing to talk about with) American royalty Beyoncé and Jay Z,…
Jimmy Fallon has been killing it on The Tonight Show and I hope he refuses to run out of steam.
Last week's viral video "Worst Twerk Fail EVER - Girl Catches Fire!" was actually a staged bit from Jimmy Kimmel, he admitted last night on Jimmy Kimmel Live: "We didn't send it to any TV station, we didn't tweet it. We just put it on YouTube and let the magic happen."
He'd probably say he was looking to glean some insight into how to best defeat his opponents, but I think we all know LeBron James was caught indulging in a little locker room reading of The Hunger Games because he's just as hooked as the rest of us.
