LeBron James Sends Love To Luka Doncic After Historic Night

Luka Doncic has been dominating the league ever since last season when he joined the Dallas Mavericks as a rookie. Doncic went on to win rookie the year and coming into this season, there were big expectations being thrust upon him. So far, he has been able to live up to the hype he set up for himself and fans have been loving it. Last night, Luka went f for another huge night as he dropped a cool 40 points.

What made this particular achievement so big was that he came the second player to score a 40-point triple-double before hitting the age 21. The only other player to achieve this is none other than LeBron James. LeBron caught wind what Doncic was able to accomplish and took to his Instagram story where he posted a pic the young Mavs star and said “He’s one BAD MOFO!!!!!”

The last time the Mavericks played against the Lakers, both players made a huge impact for their team and LeBron gave Doncic some huge props afterward. With Doncic matching one LeBron’s most impressive achievements, it’s not surprising to see the 17-year veteran show some love where it’s due.

As Doncic continues to develop as a player, the league will have to be on notice because the Mavericks could become a real contender.

Lupita Nyong’o Drops Out Of John Woo’s Remake Of "The Killer"

Lupita Nyong’o is one the most sought after actresses in Hollywood right now. Following her stunning rise to glory after 12 Years A Slave, Nyong’o featured in films like The Force Awakens, Us, Black Panther, The Last Jedi, and The Jungle Book. More roles are coming to Nyong’o’s door than she can keep up with apparently, because she was forced to drop out John Woo’s remake The Killer.

Nyong’o has only had two main starring roles since her breakout in 12 Years A Slave (Little Monsters and Us), so we were hoping for another one with The Killer. Speaking to Deadline, Woo admitted that scheduling conflicts forced Nyong’o to quit the film. “There was a scheduling problem because she’s so popular right now!” said Woo about Nyong’o’s exit. “We rewrote the script and it took so much time…she had to leave for another project.” He continued on to explain why he wanted a woman to play a role that was originally portrayed by a man. “The biggest reason why I wanted to do this movie again because I wanted] ‘the killer’ to be a woman — that’s exciting to me,” said Woo. “It will make the movie have a different look.”

 

Antonio Brown’s Meeting With The NFL Was Reportedly A Success

Antonio Brown has been going through a lengthy battle with the NFL recently as he is currently being investigated for some ual assault allegations that were made earlier this season. Since these allegations were brought forward, Brown has been without a team and has been waiting on the NFL’s investigation to be wrapped up before he can join another team. Yesterday, Brown finally had has his meeting with the league’s front fice and it seems as though it went much better than some would have anticipated.

In a report from Dan Graziano ESPN, it was revealed that Brown gave all the information that was asked him. He was extremely compliant with everyone in the room and it went “as well as it could have.” Considering Brown’s recent antics, this is some incredibly positive news that could potentially get him out trouble sooner than later.

Brown has been antsy about wanting to get back into the league and has felt disrespected by the way the media has treated him during this entire saga. At this point, AB’s worst enemy is himself so if he just refrains from getting into any trouble, he will be fine.

What team would you like to see AB link up with?

Ray Lewis Dreaming Of NFL Comeback To Play With Ravens’ Lamar Jackson

Two-time Super Bowl champion and Hall Famer Ray Lewis walked away from the NFL in 2012, but the stellar play Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson has Lewis dreaming a comeback. 

During a recent appearance on Showtime’s “Inside the NFL,” the Ravens legend explained how he told Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti that he still has a little gas left in the tank.

“I told Steve Bisciotti] the other night in the box, ‘You know I still got two quarters in me. I can come play with LJ Lamar Jackson],’” Lewis said. “If you all are holding the ball for seven minutes on a drive, and then nine minutes on a drive, I’m like ‘Man, I’ve never had that in my career.’”

“L.J., the next time I text you, you better text me back,” Lewis added. “Your texts are flooded, but when the general calls, I need you to answer.”

Jackson, 22, has established himself as an MVP candidate in just his second season in the league and the stats through his first 16 NFL starts are absolutely jaw-dropping.

As first pointed out by ESPN “Get Up” producer Paul Hembekides, through their 16 NFL starts, Jackson has more wins than Patrick Mahomes, more rushing yards than LaDainian Tomlinson, more yards per attempt than Aaron Rodgers, a higher passer rating than Tom Brady, and a better completion percentage than Drew Brees. 

In his lating outing against the Cincinnati Bengals, Jackson completed 15–17 passes for 223 yards, three touchdowns and zero interceptions. He also rushed for 65 yards, including the Michael Vick-esque TD scamper shown below.

The Ravens (8-2) have a bye this weekend and they’ll host the Los Angeles Rams on Monday night when they return to the field in Week 12.

Draymond Green Christens Chase Center With First Ever Ejection: Watch

This season has been an exercise in futility for the Golden State Warriors as it seems as though their whole team is injured and their world is crumbling before their very eyes. It’s been a horrible stretch to start the season and last night, the Warriors lost yet another game, this time at the hands the Utah Jazz. When you’re always losing, it is very easy to get frustrated and that’s what happened last night as Draymond Green was ejected.

It all started when he made contact with Jazz point guard Mike Conley. The ref called a foul on Green and it was safe to say he was upset about it. Green ended up walking over to the referee where he gave him a piece his mind. This led to the first-ever ejection in Chase Center history.

For context, the Warriors recently moved to the Chase Center in San Francisco after decades playing at the Oracle Arena in Oakland. So far, the Chase Center hasn’t brought many good memories for Warriors fans and this first ejection is just one many disappointments to come this season.

Hopefully, for the upper-middle-class Silicon Valley Warriors fans that grace the Chase Center every night, they will begin to improve sooner than later.   

U.S. Patent and Trademark Office Opens Inquiry into Artificial Intelligence

The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) is asking the public for input on whether computers, in the form of artificial intelligence (AI), can create something that could be copyrighted and whether it could infringe on the copyrights of others.

Artificial intelligence can mean a lot of different things. It can mean anything from advanced algorithms that allow computers to process information in an intelligent manner to systems that attempt to mimic human thought.

In recent years, these latter systems have developed to the extent that they could possibly fool a human into thinking that it was communicating with an actual person, which has long been the standard of determining whether a computer system has achieved intelligence. But could these same systems one day actually create intellectual property?

This is what the USPTO is trying to find out through its public questionnaire, as it says “AI poses unique challenges in the sphere of intellectual property law.”

The first question the office asks is this: “Should a work produced by an AI algorithm or process, without the involvement of a natural person contributing expression to the resulting work, qualify as a work of authorship protectable under U.S. copyright law? Why or why not?”

The questionnaire then goes on to ask another dozen related questions. Such as the following:

“To the extent an AI algorithm or process learns its function(s) by ingesting large volumes of copyrighted material, does the existing statutory language (e.g., the fair use doctrine) and related case law adequately address the legality of making such use? Should authors be recognized for this type of use of their works? If so, how?”

It also asks:

“Are current laws for assigning liability for copyright infringement adequate to address a situation in which an AI process creates a work that infringes a copyrighted work?”

The office is further open to input that goes beyond the questions it has asked.

Lamar Jackson’s Stats Through His First 16 NFL Starts Are Absolutely Mind-Blowing

Baltimore Ravens’ second-year quarterback Lamar Jackson has quickly proved that he’s more than capable being a QB in the NFL, despite the fact that some draft experts thought he’d be better served as a wide receiver. Not only that, Jackson has established himself as an MVP candidate and the stats from his first 16 NFL starts are utterly ridiculous. 

As first pointed out by ESPN “Get Up” producer Paul Hembekides, through their 16 NFL starts, Jackson has more wins than Patrick Mahomes, more rushing yards than LaDainian Tomlinson, more yards per attempt than Aaron Rodgers, a higher passer rating than Tom Brady, and a better completion percentage than Drew Brees. 

In his lating outing against the Cincinnati Bengals, the 22-year old QB completed 15–17 passes for 223 yards, three touchdowns and zero interceptions. He also rushed for 65 yards, including the Michael Vick-esque TD scamper shown below.

Ravens running back Mark Ingram described Jackson’s 47-yard touchdown run as the craziest thing he’s ever seen on the field.

“I think that was the craziest thing I’ve witnessed on the field with somebody,” Ingram said, per ESPN. “He just spun and took f and let me just escort him. That’s Lamar. That’s special.”

“He surprises you,” Ravens coach Harbaugh said. “They’ll be watching that run for decades and decades. That’s one everybody in the country’s going to see by tomorrow afternoon. That was something. That’s rare.”

As a result Jackson’s stellar play this season, Baltimore is sitting at 7-2 entering their Week 11 matchup against the Houston Texans. 

LeBron James Offers Cheeky Response To Whether Or Not He’s "Washed"

LeBron James is in his 17th season in the NBA and after so many years in the league, one would expect him to be on the decline. While he can’t do everything he used to, James is still an effective player that can carry a team on his back on a nightly basis if he has to. So far, LeBron has been good for the most part and with Anthony Davis by his side, the Lakers have jumped out to a 7-2 record.

There has been plenty chatter surrounding LeBron and whether or not he’s “washed.” James has been sarcastically calling himself the “washed King” on social media but recently, he was asked directly about being “washed.” This led to a pretty cheeky response that evokes some serious dad joke energy.

“I don’t know, man. Meet me at the cleaners,” James said. Of course, LeBron had a huge smile on his face while giving the response. He knows people want to see him fall f but it doesn’t appear like it’s going to happen anytime soon. If anything, we could see Bron playing at a high level all the way until 40.

Barring any serious injuries this season, LeBron and the Lakers are primed and ready for a deep playf run.

 

Giannis Antetokounmpo Reacts After Breaking Thunder Sign In Fit Of Rage

Coming into this season, the Oklahoma City Thunder were expected to be on a steep decline while the Milwaukee Bucks were viewed as a team that could win it all. Last night, both teams faced f against each other and it turned out to be quite a struggle for the Bucks at first. The Thunder were up by six at halftime and Giannis only had 11 points. He was so upset by what was happening out on the court that when heading back to the locker room, he kicked a Thunder sign in the hallway and completely broke it.

The scene was pretty hilarious without the context the kick although it should be noted that the Bucks immediately got better in the second half. Giannis went on to score 35 points and 16 rebounds while propelling his team to a huge 121-119 win. With the victory, the Bucks improved their record to 7-3 and are now firmly one the best teams in the Eastern Conference.

After the game, Giannis spoke about his mini temper tantrum and what he plans to do with the sign moving forward.

“Obviously, I’ll try to pay for the sign or I can trade you guys with a Bucks sign when you guys come to Milwaukee but there’s no excuse for that,” he said. 

Clearly, The Greek Freak is feeling a little remorseful for his outburst.

Jon Jones Reveals His Next UFC Opponent & Disses Corey Anderson

Jon Jones is one the scariest fighters in the history MMA and the UFC. If it weren’t for losing a fight due to a positive drug test, Jones would have an undefeated record. He continues to pick f his opponents and challengers one by one which has led to some pretty entertaining fights. Every single person who gets a little bit clout in the UFC says they want to go up against Jones and it’s easy to see why.

The latest fighters to throw their names into the ring potential challengers are Dominick Reyes and Corey Anderson. Jones took to Twitter recently where he broke down who he wants to fight next and why. In the process, he also threw some subtle jabs at Anderson who just came f a huge win against Johnny Walker.

So there you have it, if you’ve been hoping to see Jones back in the Octagon soon, it seems as though it will end up being against the likes Reyes. This should make for an excellent fight that Jones will be the favorite to win. He had some trouble with Thiago Santos the last time around so perhaps Reyes will be looking to make an example Jones.

Let us know in the comments below if you’re excited to see this.

Mitch Trubisky Lit Up By Adam Schefter For Complaining About Criticism

Mitch Trubisky has been one the most scrutinized quarterbacks in all the NFL this season thanks to his lackluster play with the Chicago Bears. Last season, he wasn’t the most impressive player but he looked as though he could do some serious damage this year with a full season being a starter under his belt. Instead, Trubisky has been one the biggest disappointments in the league this year and it has been pretty detrimental to the Bears who sit at a record 3-5.

Trubisky recently spoke about dealing with criticism and how he has turned f the TV’s in the Bears facility because he is sick and tired people ripping him to shreds. During the latest episode ESPN’s Get Up, Damien Woody laced into Trubisky for his comments while insider Adam Schefter went on a bit a rare rant his own.

“If you can’t handle some criticism, then you don’t need to be the quarterback,” Schefter said.

The entire panel couldn’t seem to believe that Trubisky would say something like this so publically considering how it’s a pretty embarrassing admission. When you’re the quarterback, you’re going to have to deal with people saying bad things about you and so far, Trubisky doesn’t seem like he can handle himself very well.

Trey Songz Forcing Megan Thee Stallion To Drink Sparks Interesting Conversation

Last week, Megan Thee Stallion and Trey Songz kicked it along with Jordyn Woods and any other unknown members their entourage. While the hang out sounds pretty normal, despite people commenting on the age gap between Trey, 34, and Megan, 24, there was one aspect the night that has sent fans both artists into quite a conversation on Twitter. 

In the clip below, you can see the “Slow Motion” singer trying to get Megan to down another shot A.K.A “drive the boat.” Megan declines the drink while her surrounding friends continue to egg her on. The video ends with Megan’s face looking pretty annoyed by the number voices telling her to do one thing. 

The online conversation is surrounded on consent and the duo’s age difference. “Trey Songz needs to keep his full grown ass away from Megan and Jordyn fr fr! Like ima need him to GET THE FUCK! ASAP!” one user wrote

However, there’s an even greater amount online users who are calling out a double standard when it comes to the recent link-up. “Aye how old is Trey Songz? How old is Megan? Y’all would have a problem with it if the roles were reversed,” a user added.

Trey has been labelled a “creep” and “predator” by other fans who seemingly aren’t changing their minds on Trey’s choice partying. Peep more reactions below and let us know what you think.
