LeBron James Praises Bronny James Jr. After Candy Was Thrown At Son During Game

When your father is arguably one the best NBA players to ever step in the paint, it’s going to be difficult to follow in his footsteps. Nevertheless, Bronny James Jr. is carving out his own lane in the basketball world as the Sierra Canyon School sports star carries on the James name. LeBron is front and center at Bronny’s games when he can make it, but even with the championship basketball player in attendance, his son is a target for abusive behavior.

On Monday (January 20) Sierra Canyon went up against Paul VI Catholic High School from Virginia in front a packed auditorium 4,000 people. LeBron reportedly entered the room to roaring applause, but even with all the support, someone thought it was appropriate to throw something at Bronny during the game.

According to Yahoo Sports, it was near the beginning the second half when someone in the stands tossed a piece candy at Bronny, causing the referee to interrupt gameplay. As LeBron shook his head in disgust, security escorted the person out the auditorium. The young James’s teammate Ziaire Willaims told Yahoo Sports, “You’d be surprised by all the stuff Bronny has to go through. It’s not fair, but he doesn’t let it faze him at all. I’m learning how to be more like that from him and he’s younger than me.”

Later, LeBron took to Instagram to publicly declare how proud he is his son. “Know I got your back and front throughout it all! I’d die for you and your siblings,” the Los Angeles Lakers star wrote. “Never waver no matter what disrespect, hate, envy, jealousy, etc comes your way! Only push forward and continue to be the great kid/young man/person you are! Love you kid!! ❤️ #JamesGang👑.”

I’m at a new place in life and I dont’ do it. If I know you on some stuff, I’m just gone leave you there with the stuff.” For years, K. has publicly accused Joseline Hernandez being a drug addict.

Wifisfuneral Called Russ A "Trash Rapper" Due To Insensitivity Over Lil Peep

In their series Arts & Raps, All Def Music features a rap artist who answers questions from kids as they break out the crafts and spark conversation. On Wififuneral’s February 2018 episode, he was asked who he thinks is a “trash rapper.” Without much hesitation, the New York artist said “Russ,” and thus ignited a back-and-forth feud between the two.

Russ later sat down with Joe Budden for his Pull Up series and spoke about the beef. “Wifisfuneral] is one these rappers, I’ve never met,” he said. “I don’t know you and you’re talking sh*t. It’s kinda one those things where like you’re joining in on, ‘Oh wait, we’re all making fun Russ. Cool, here’s my joke too.’ You don’t realize there are consequences to that.”

In a recent chat with VladTV, Wifisfuneral was asked why he mentioned Russ’s name in the first place. According to the rapper, it all stemmed from Russ’s alleged insensitive remarks and behavior toward Lil Peep after the late rapper’s overdose. “I think he’s very misconstrued on what exactly my issue is with him,” Wifi began. “I really don’t got a problem with his music at all. I personally, from the bottom my heart, I don’t really care for his music. I know he doesn’t care for mine, so we don’t lose on that end at all. Second all, I never knew that somebody would feel so fended by my words. Never thought that I would have that much power to fend somebody.”

“Third all, the reason why I actually said that was not because it was a trend and not because you know, people were at the time saying like, ‘Oh, f*ck Russ.‘ Imma drug addict. Straight up and down. We’re just gon’ address it like that,” Wifi said, before adding that Russ’s anti-drug Twitter rant following Peep’s death upset him. Russ also reportedly wore a shirt that said, “How much Xans and Lean do you have to do before you realize you’re a f*cking loser.” 

Wifi continued, “So you mean to tell me that people who have problems like me, people who have problems like Peep, people who have problems like, you know…we’re legit losers? So me expressing my pain because every form or way that I’ve tried to do it is just not working for me, I’m a loser for that? Alright, well f*ck you then.” Watch his full explanation below.

There was a special team that focused on Dr. King that reportedly bugged his home, sent him threatening letters, and exposed his alleged infidelities to discredit his movement. The National Archives holds the “FBI-King Suicide Letter,” a note sent to Dr. King from the bureau encouraging him to take his own life under the direction J. Edgar Hoover. The letter called the Civil Rights leader “an evil, abnormal beast.” The FBI’s headquarters in Washington, D.C. is named the J. Edgar Hoover Building.

“Your headquarters is named after J. Edgar Hoover, who used all his resources to not only destroy King’s reputation, but to get him to kill himself,” Marc Lamont Hill tweeted to the FBI. “If you want to ‘do what is right,’ you should denounce Hoover’s attacks on The Black Freedom Movement and rename the building.” Check out a few more responses below and let us know if you think people are overreacting.

He never wanted to see me the one time the court was making him see me he decided to “cancel”. This man did not want a damn thing to do with me until I got famous. Not to mention also signed his rights away in exchange 20k. This man makes a big deal out everything I can’t even post a video as a joke without this man making it seem more than it is.

While visiting the My Expert Opinion show, Budden was in the hot seat and asked about Slaughterhouse. “Those are my brothers and I love them,” Budden said his relationship with his former collaborators. He did admit, however, that he doesn’t speak to them regularly. “Royce just did the podcast, I spoke to him,” Budden added. “I haven’t spoke to Joell, but he just like a picture a few days ago and I liked one back, so I know me and him are fly. The same with Crook, man. Those are my guys forever.”

“I’m not a worker, anymore,” he said how his mentality has shifted over the years. “I’m not going to work for something that didn’t exist before I got here. And that’s how I feel about wordsmiths. We can put this together, y’all can’t monetize it until we do, and that’s how I act. So, nah, I’m not putting nothing out with Slaughterhouse unless Slaughterhouse is away from Shady and we own our own sh*t.”

When questioned about Eminem, Budden shut down that line conversation. The podcast host was the only member Slaughterhouse to not be featured on Eminem’s recently released Music To Be Murdered By. “That has nothing to do with me. Don’t ask me about Em. Has zero to do with what I just said. He is not a factor in what I am saying. What I am saying is solely related to my brothers. Now, how it gets wherever it gotta go is not on me. It’s lawyers and things for that to happen but that’s a me thing.” Watch the conversation below.
