Air Jordan 7 "Oregon Ducks" PE Will Be Insanely Limited: Detailed Images

There are various Universities who are signed to Jordan Brand although perhaps the Oregon Ducks are the most infamous. The Ducks have various PEs on numerous different silhouettes. For those who don’t know, a PE is a Player Exclusive which means only those playing for the specific team can own them.

Trae Young Explains What Annoys Him About Luka Doncic Comparisons

Trae Young and Luka Doncic are some the most talented basketball players in the NBA right now. What’s interesting about these two players is that they were traded for one another on draft night. The Hawks had originally taken Doncic while the Mavericks had taken Young. So far, both these players have been fantastic for their respective teams although if you were to ask who’s better, many would say Doncic. In an interview with ESPN, Young expressed how annoyed he is with the comparisons and what it will take for them to stop.

“Retirement,” Young joked. “I think that’s what it’s gonna take. We’re going to be compared throughout our whole careers. That’s fine, that’s what it’s going to be — it happened on draft night, and I don’t think it’ll stop until we’re both retired.”

Young went on to say that he understands where these comparisons come from although it doesn’t stop them from being tiresome.

“Yeah. For me, it bothers me — I just love playing basketball, I know he does. So it bothers me because it’s annoying just getting asked about it all the time,” Young said. “But I know it comes with it. I didn’t ask for it to happen, but it happened… It’s two totally different situations, two totally different players. He’s playing well, I’m playing well. Just let it be.”

Who do you think is better, Doncic or Young? Make your case in the comments below.

Ja Rule Accuses Former Maid Of Harassment In Slip & Fall Lawsuit: Report

Ja Rule‘s upcoming court date has nothing to do with his Fyre Festival involvement but rather a lawsuit brought on by his former maid. According to Bossip, Josselyn Berniz sued Ja Rule (born Jeffrey Atkins) in 2015 when she slipped and fell outside his New Jersey home after a light snowfall. Josselyn was called to the property when the rapper was shooting a reality show and needed assistance for clean up. Josselyn alleged she was “permanently injured” from the slip and suffered “great pain and anguish.”

Ahead his court appearance, Ja Rule handed in court documents blasting Josselyn for trying to force his children, mother and mother in law into court to testify against the matter. The “Always On Time” rapper accused his former maid   pulling a “harassment (tactic) designed to browbeat the Atkins into (a) settlement.”

Ja Rule also countersued Josselyn and accused her fraud and using the case as just a money grab. Ja Rule’s court filings include affidavits from his two sons, mother and mother in law to prove they have no knowledge  Josselyn’s fall. 

A judge has yet to rule on the matter and whether Ja Rule and his family will have to testify. 

McDonald’s McRib Returns On Monday & This Is Why It’s Not Always On The Menu

Starting Monday (October 7), the McDonald’s McRib sandwich will be sold at over 10,000 their locations, but, obviously, for a limited time only. The McRib has been an on-and-f item on McDonald’s menu since 1981. While it’s beloved by many, there’s a good reason why the barbecue delight remains seasonal. 

Alexander Chernev, a pressor marketing at Northwestern University’s Kellogg School Management, explained to CNN why McDonald’s opts for this move. “When you have these exclusive products, which exist for a short period time, it gives people a reason to come to the store,” he said. Chernev compared the phenomenon the McRib to Starbucks’ seasonal items, such as its Pumpkin Spice Latte. As we all probably know, the PSL ignites a craze every year when its reintroduced to the Starbucks menu right before the fall. However, the drink would likely not perform as well or generate as much buzz were it to be available year-round. The companies get to contribute to building the buzz too, keeping them active and present in consumers’ lives.

Chernev also detailed how fering seasonal items reinforces the love for a chain’s staples, while also ensuring that customers do not get bored the everyday menu. “You need consistency because that’s the brand mantra,” said Chernev. “But no matter how much you like something, consuming something different … increases the enjoyment what you consumed before.”

Essentially, the success limited-time items can be attributed to supply-and-demand economics. The less there is something, the more people want to eat it.

Olivia Jade Slams Media & Their “Sources” In First Public Post Since College Scandal

It appears Lori Laughlin’s daughter, Oli Jade, has some harsh feelings about the media and their “sources” following her recent college scandal. On Sunday, the daughter Lori Laughlin decided to make her first public statement since her USC scandal by jumping on IG and giving two middle fingers to several media sites, which she captioned with hashtags.

“@dailymail @starmagazine @people @perezhilton @everyothermediaoutlet #close #source #says” she wrote along with her posing with two middle fingers in the air. Most the sites she listed appear to have broken exclusive stories about her in the recent months, which include everything from that she was dropped from her sorority to she’s no longer attending USC.

This is the first time Oli Jade has addressed the college bribery scandal since it broke earlier this year. And as previously reported, her mother and her father, Mossimo Giannulli, are currently fighting the charges that were brought against them as a result.

Check out Oli’s first post since the scandal broke (below) and sound f in the comments.

Future & 2 Chainz Just Made "The Hardest Song In The World"

Two Atlanta’s finest have ficially crossed paths once again. Nearly ten years removed from talks a collaboration album, Future and 2 Chainz have decided to join forces for the good the masses. Today, the pair took to Instagram to tease “the hardest song in the world,” providing audio evidence to back up their lty claims. But first, the pair express gratitude for having linked up to begin with, with Future deeming the collaboration “long overdue.” 2 Chainz proceeds to strike up the band, as the sound a synthesizer fills the garage.

Sadly, that’s about all we get, as 2 Chainz cuts it f before the drums get a chance to hit. “I’ma put it out in a minute,” he promises, though it’s unclear whether he’s readying yet another album, or simply dropping f a loosie. Either way, given that the pair have wasted little time in drumming up hype, expect this one to surface as soon as this Friday. Of course, that’s merely speculation, but at the rate Future has been dropping would it really be a surprise?

Check out the brief snippet below, and sound f – do you think 2 Chainz and Future have it in them to craft the self-proclaimed “hardest song in the world?”
