The San Antonio Spurs Hires First Female NBA Coach

As the Spurs named Becky Hammon as an assistant coach on August 5th, 2014; she earns the opportunity to be the first female with a “real coaching” role in NBA history.

NBA fans claim that hiring Hammon could be catastrophic, but Gregg Popovich (head coach for the Spurs) claims that he had no interest in hiring her to make history.

“Pop told me, early on, ‘As cool as it would be to hire you, you have to be qualified, and I have to make sure you’re qualified,’” Hammon said. “It could be catastrophic if I wasn’t qualified, and then it sets the whole thing back.”

In spite of all the efforts Popovich has made to make hiring Hammon seem normal, there is no way around how significant the opportunity is for her. 

“Obviously, the (historic first) is great, and it’s a tremendous honor, but I think the bigger point is I’m getting hired because I am capable, because of my basketball IQ and stuff that they’ve seen in me personally.” added Hammon. 

With 16 seasons in the WNBA, Hammon is in the final season of her WNBA career. The last eight seasons were spent in San Antonio, where she has had the opportunity to be around Popovich and the Spurs. 

“I know I’m just thrilled for the opportunity to coach these unbelievable athletes and, from what I’ve known, unbelievable people,” stated Hammon.

What do you think about this opportunity? Will Hammon be able to excel in the job she was hired for? Or should the NBA stick to male coaches? What is your opinion?

Remy Ma, Nicki Minaj And Iggy Azealia On One Track?

After spending six years in prison, Remy Ma was released on August 1st, and she is back to get revenge. Remy already released her first song: “They Don’t Love You No More (Remix).” Originally a DJ Khaled track that featured Jay Z and Meek Mill.

As rumors began, it was said that Remy was dissing Nicki Minaj in her verse, “I listened to your CD/ Damn, you really wanna be me/ Don’t care if your name buzzin’, you know who the queen be.”

Even with all of the talk, Remy cleared things up in an interview with Funkmaster Flex, she precisely gave love to a lot of women who are in the rap game today, this included Nicki and even Iggy Azalea.

“It’d be dope if we could get a ill chick record,” Remy said. “Me, maybe Iggy Azalea, Nicki, just do a nice little collabo.”

Remy still hasn’t signed with anyone, she isn’t sure where she wants to sign.

“I just know I have so many great songs that I think the world needs to hear. I’m excited. I’m extremely happy. I’m blessed. God gave me another chance to do what I love to do.” She added.

What do you think? Will Remy Ma make it back to the top? Or did she ever leave?

Waka Flocka, Trey Burke and Shaq: Sued For Mocking Via Social Media Jay R the Superstar | Nights

Waka Flocka, Trey Burke and Shaq: Sued For Mocking Via Social Media

Making fun of people on social media may be entertaining. People tend to post things to get the audience’s attention and they do it for likes rather than care about what someone might think or if someone may be affected by these posts, in this case, Waka Flocka Flame, Trey Burke and Shaquile O’Neal; were just a few of a handful of celebrities that were named in a lawsuit filed by 23-year-old Jahmel Binion.

A couple of months ago, these celebrities all posted and made fun of a photo of Binion, who suffers from hypohidrotic ectodermal dysplasia –which is a disease that causes missing teeth and facial deformities—on Instagram and Twitter.

According to Malcom Daily, the lawsuit states that, “The defendants’ communications clearly implied that the plaintiff was an appropriate object of mockery, ridicule and shame [and] had the effect of lowering the plaintiff’s reputation in the eyes of those who respected the views and opinion of the defendants.” 

The sarcasm began when Shaq posted a side-by-side photo of himself and Binion (who was toothless) with a caption that said, “Smile today.” Shortly after, Waka Flocka and Burke posted pictures of their own. 

Shortly after the photos were posted all three of them reached out to Binion and apologized for their actions. Later on, Binion revealed to the Macomb Daily that he felt the apologies weren’t sincere.

“When they said sorry, I felt like they were saying it to get the pressure off of them for being considered ‘bad people,’” stated Binion. “Even though I accept their apology, I still hope that they donate to my cause or other organizations that connect with ectodermal dysplasia.”

Binion is supposedly suing for insult, intentional infliction of emotional distress, invasion of privacy and finally, general negligence. 

What is your opinion? Do you believe that the apologies were sincere or that they were just a way to release the pressure from the celebrities?

Fans Question If Hayward Is Worth The Money Jay R the Superstar | Nights

Fans Question If Hayward Is Worth The Money

Regardless of how fans may feel about Gordon Hayward, his numbers demonstrate that he deserves to be a man in demand when it comes to the NBA.

As Hayward goes through many changes throughout the summer, such as getting married, making it on the USA National Team and finally, having the Jazz match an offer he received from the Charlotte Hornets; despite of having the opportunity to play for multiple teams; Hayward has decided to stay in Utah. 

He is a multidimensional player who has averaged 16.2 points a game, while grabbing 5.2 assists and 5.1 rebounds. He is a player that has a great opportunity to make the USA’s team roster this summer, this means that he has the opportunity to become a candidate for the Olympic roster in 2016.

Fans on the other hand, have been questioning whether Hayward is worth the money. With him not being a featured scorer last year, fans were blaming the offensive inefficiency oh him. Nonetheless, Jazz fans should be thankful Hayward is still with the team. 

“Everybody around the team knows the tradition, so there’s a legacy to uphold,” stated Hayward. “I take a lot of pride in that every time I put on the jersey. You’ve got to take pride in your organization and your franchise. Utah is definitely one that is easy to take pride in.”

What do you think? Is Hayward being over paid to return to the Jazz? Or are you willing to give him a second opportunity to grow as a player?

Kanye West: Best Album of the 21st Century, or Nah? Jay R the Superstar | Nights

Kanye West: Best Album of the 21st Century, or Nah?

As heard in the past, Kanye West refers to himself as a creative genius. According to GQ magazine, West’s album; My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy -released in 2010- was named the best album of the 21st century. In the article, this is rationalized by the impact that the project has had; it also explains how powerful all of West’s projects have been.

“It could’ve been any one of the seven albums West released this century,” GQ says. “A portrait of a man seizing the spotlight, drowning in it, and then somehow finding a way to turn that harrowing experience into art. Anybody who wants to be famous or make music for a living—or do both at the same time—should be forced to listen to MBDTF first. The rest of us are free to enjoy it for the bloody, hard-won, titanic achievement that it is.”

In 2010, the album was reviewed by HipHopDX’s Editor-In-Chief at the time, Jake Paine; where it earned a 4.5 out of a 5.

“From nine-minute douchebag manifestos, to enlisting an A-list Grammy ensemble to piece-mealing his album out to the masses every Friday. My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy defies logic and it ignores convention. Whether it’s acknowledging his mistakes, measuring his might, or fantasizing of wifing Kristina Rose, Kanye West finds a way to relate to all. He’s not forcing his hand, just reminding us that the biggest star we appointed in the last five years can still recognize our own fantasies, insecurities and desire for colorful music from his spaceship,” Paine wrote.

What is your opinion? Do you believe that My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy deserves the tittle of best album?
