Drake Takes Over Commentary for the Raptors Preseason Game

The Toronto Raptors are officially back in the Scotiabank Arena in Toronto. With that, Drake has made his return to the sidelines.

During the Raptors preseason game against the Houston Rockets, Drizzy took courtside, but also put on a headset and engaged with the color commentators during the game. The Raptors aren’t expected to compete for a ring this year but that won’t stop Drake from showing love to his team.

“So good to be home boys,” Drake said during the broadcast. “Everything’s feeling great, looking great, so great to be around people again, see all these faces. I’m feeling in high spirits boys.”

Earlier this week, Drake hosted a fourth birthday celebration for his son Adonis. “Happy 4th birthday Adonis,” Drake wrote on an IG image of him and his son. “TEACHA MORE LIFE KID.”

Milestone moments in Adonis’s have become a fixture of Instagram. Last year, Drake revealed his son’s first day of school. The caption reads, “First Day of School… The World is Yours kids.” Later in the same year, Drake shaed a photo of him and Adonis napping.

Rory and Mal‘s podcast is set to get bigger. In a new Vulture feature, the once co-hosts of the Joe Budden Podcast reveal they have signed with SiriusXM’s Stitcher, and the show will now be released through Stitcher’s new More Sauce label. The first episode in the new deal will release on Nov. 2, they will follow with new installments every Tuesday and Friday.

“We definitely wanted to add some new elements into podcasting,” Rory said of the deal. “I feel like podcasting has become pretty stagnant and a little oversaturated, where everyone is just setting up microphones and talking about the same thing every single day.”

The duo would also state they are not opposed to the independent route but the venture with SiriusXM was a good situation and allowed them to retain full ownership of their show.

“We’re not against being independent. Sure, we signed a deal, but again, it just made sense,” said Mal. “They understand what we’re trying to do and what we represent and how important it is for us.”

Rory added, “We have 100 percent ownership of our show.”

Rory and Mal would also touch on their split from Joe Budden. Mal stated at this point he doesn’t think about the situation and says that the character of his former friend showed.

The two also revealed they do not have conversations with Budden. Specifically, Mal stated, “I haven’t seen or spoken to him since my last day at the studio. I’m happy it went that way because if I had seen him or run into him, it would have been bad news.”

FByhpCMXsAUXWqw

Kahleah Copper went off and couldn’t be stopped as the Chicago Sky now find themselves one win away from their first WNBA Championship.

Copper scored 20 points in an efficient first-half outing to lead the Sky to an 86-50 victory in Game 3 over the Phoenix Mercury at a sold-out Wintrust Arena in Chicago on Friday. It’s the largest margin of victory in WNBA Finals history at 36 points. 

“I don’t focus on what we won by, it’s just how we played,” Chicago coach James Wade said. “We know we have to stay focused. I want them to feel good about tonight’s win, but after tonight we have to really hone in on the next game. We have to take care of business.”

Candace Parker had 13 points in 24 minutes with four rebounds and three assists. Courtney Vandersloot had another 10 assists this Finals. It’s her 10th career postseason game with double-digit assists, breaking the tie she held with Sue Bird for the record. 

The Mercury are looking for their fourth WNBA championship but to get that they are aware that game 4 must be a better performance.

“We can’t be any worse than 50,” Phoenix guard Diana Taurasi said of the Mercury’s season-low in points, which is also the second-lowest total in a WNBA Finals game. “We’ll be better than 50. You can take that to Vegas.”

The Sky can close out the WNBA Finals on Sunday at 3 pm on ESPN.

New York City will once again be the location for VERZUZ. Big Daddy Kane and KRS-One are set to take over the Barclays Center. After the announcement was made official, fans began to go into the discographies of both artists and attempt to pick a winner.

Brooklynite Antonio Hardy aka Big Daddy Kane stepped on the scene with the Juice Crew in the late ’80s and has been rocking the mic and setting cultural trends ever since. Big Daddy Kane was the first Hip Hop artist to sell out the Apollo Theatre not once but twice with his women-only show. His career has solidified him in hip-hop history putting out hits such as “Ain’t No Half Steppin”, “I Get The Job Done”, and “Smooth Operator.”

KRS-One solo career began 28 years ago with the release of Return Of The Boom Bap recorded almost totally in the legendary D&D Studios. With production from DJ Premier, Kid Capri, and Showbiz of Showbiz & A.G. while being promoted and marketed by Jive Records, this album is one of Hip Hop’s buried treasures and received 4 mics from The Source Magazine.

Prior to the solo release, KRS-One was an integral member of Boogie Down Productions, teaming with DJ Scott La Rock and Derrick “D-Nice” Jones. After rocking with the crew for five albums, KRS-One would follow his Return of the Booom Bap album with a self-titled release, I Got Next, and an onslaught of albums that run on to today with his Between the Protests album dropping late last year.

With the stage for the VERZUZ set, The Source gives a taste of what will come from Barclays Sunday night. Check out five selections from both KRS-One and Big Daddy Kane then let us know who gets the win when Sunday rolls around.

SOURCE SPORTS: Deontay Wilder Breaks Silence and Congratulates Tyson Fury On His Latest Victory 

FBrbjQfUYAEaEmK

It took a few days but Deontay Wilder finally spoke up and gave Tyson Fury his props and appreciation for the conclusion of their trilogy. Wilder broke his silence with an Instagram post on Thursday morning, congratulating Fury on his victory and “for the great historical memories that will last forever.”

“Wow, what a hell of a night! I would like to first and foremost thank God for allowing me to give the world another part of me that’s driven with passion and determination. I would like to thank my team and my fans for sticking by my side through this long process. I would be lying if I said that I wasn’t disappointed in the outcome but after reflecting on my journey, I now see that what God wanted me to experience is far greater than what I expected to happen. We didn’t get the win but a wise man once said the victories are within the lessons. I’ve learned that sometimes you have to lose to win.

“Although, I wanted the win I enjoyed seeing the fans win even more. Hopefully, I proved that I am a true Warrior and a true King in this sport. Hopefully, WE proved that no matter how hard you get hit with trials and tribulations you can always pick yourself up to live and fight again for what you believe in. Last but not least I would like to congratulate @gypsyking101 for his victory and thank you for the great historical memories that will last forever.”

Furry seems to have excepted Wilder’s congrats and the two warriors are ready to move on from each other, respectfully this time.

Wilder and Furry gave us three incredible fights. Next for Furry is the waiting game. Fury could fight WBA, IBF, IBO, and WBO heavyweight champion Oleksandr Usyk, who is expected to fight the former champion, Anthony Joshua, after he exercised a rematch clause following their Sept. 25 bout. As for Wilder, no telling what the former champ has planned yet but expect him back in the ring at some point in 2022.
