At the beginning this season, there were a ton questions surrounding LeBron James and whether or not he could continue to be the player he’s proven himself to be over the last 16 years. Some felt like he wouldn’t be able to dunk while others thought his defensive play would take a serious hit. So far, LeBron has been able to shut up all his critics and has led the Los Angeles Lakers to a staggering 21-3 record. The Lakers look poised to make a championship run and with LeBron and Anthony Davis at the helm, the Lakers are better than ever.
After defeating the Minnesota Timberwolves on Sunday night, LeBron took to Instagram with a video one his dunks. Once again, James came through with a sarcastic caption about how he is washed up and can’t play the game like he used to.
“Meet me at the top floor cause I can’t get there anymore they say. Not a good decision to listen to what “THEY” say,” James wrote. His Lakers teammate Dwight Howard echoed these sentiments by saying “U want some too old man. No. Cmon son. I told u bout coming over here messing with these folks.”
Based on the way the Lakers are playing, it’s hard to bet against LeBron right now. He’s one the greatest players ever and deserves to be respected as such.
Lizzo is quickly becoming one the biggest artists in the world thanks to her vibrant personality and positive message that resonates in her music. While many are quick to dismiss her as an artist the moment, it’s clear that she has some real staying power in the game, as long as she continues to make music that touches her wide-reaching fanbase. In terms uality, Lizzo has never been shy to display her feelings towards the opposite and on Sunday night, that’s exactly what happened.
The “Truth Hurts” artist was sitting courtside at the Los Angeles Lakers game at the Staples Center. LeBron and company were taking on the Minnesota Timberwolves who boast the talents Karl-Anthony Towns. As you can see in the interview below, Lizzo presses her love for KAT, referring to him as “number 32.” At one point, she even calls him her “baby.”
Overall, the clip was pretty funny and led to some ridiculous memes on social media that revolved around Towns’ potential reaction to finding out about Lizzo’s affection. In the end, we never ended up getting Towns’ thoughts on the whole thing although we’re curious about what he would have to say.
As for Lizzo, this could either go very well or very bad. Only time will tell which one it is.

Steve Harvey’s major mistake in announcing the wrong winner during the 2015 Miss Universe Pageant hasn’t kept the television personality from reprising his role as host for the competition in the years since. However, this year’s iteration the competition turned into a bout deja vu when a mix-up made Harvey appear as if he identified the wrong winner the National Costume category for the 2019 Miss Universe pageant.
It was as an image Miss Philippines Gazini Ganados came on the screen, that Harvey read f on the teleprompter that she was the winner the National Costume category from earlier in the week. However, standing next to Harvey was Miss Malaysia Shweta Sekhon.
“This is it right here, I thought I had on something fly,” he quipped.
Sekhon would soon take the microphone from Harvey and attempted to correct him. “It’s not Philippines,” she said. “It’s Malaysia.”
“Let me explain something to you. I just read that in the teleprompter,” he comically flipped. “Y’all got to quit doing this to me. I can read. Now, they are trying to fix it now. See? This is what they did to me back in 2015 – played me short like that. This is Malaysia.”
Turns out, he was never in the wrong, according to insiders, per Deadline.
“Miss Universe Philippines Gazini Ganados is the winner the Miss Universe 2019 National Costume contest. As part the broadcast, we also featured Miss Universe Malaysia Shweta Sekhon’s national costume,” the insider revealed. “Miss Sekhon wasn’t aware we’d be announcing Philippines first, so she jumped the gun when Mr. Harvey started with that news. Mr. Harvey made a joke it, but no mistakes regarding the national costume winner were made by him, the prompter or production.”
The remainder the broadcast, however, went f with a hitch as South Africa’s Zozibini Tunzi was ultimately crowned Miss Universe 2019.
