Bill Russell’s Number to be Retired League-Wide by NBA

Published

on

The late, great Bill Russell will have his jersey number 6 retired throughout the entire league, the NBA and National Basketball Players Association said on Thursday.

Highest of Honors

Russell joins Wayne Gretzky (No. 99) and Jackie Robinson (No. 42) as the only players in American professional sports history to have their jersey numbers retired across an entire league, a distinction that is strictly reserved for all-time greats.

Some Sort of Loophole

LeBron James and other players who presently wear the No. 6 jersey number will be “grandfathered in” and can continue to wear that number if they so desire, despite the fact that no new players will be allowed to use it.

Don’t be shocked if some players switch numbers going into this season, even though they can all continue to wear Russell’s jersey number if they so desire.

Cardi B Opens Up About Failed Collaboration with Call of Duty

Published

on

It may sound a little strange, but Cardi B should be creating some buzz for Call of Duty. Back in July, the rapper partnered with Activision. She goes on to tell us more about how the partnership eventually fell apart after that.

The Reason

You might recall that Cardi B debuted her partnership with Activision by donning a Simon “Ghost” Riley necklace in the music video for “Hot S**t.” Since then, you probably haven’t seen Cardi B advertising Call of Duty because she allegedly lost her cooperation deal as a result of prior “stupid decisions.”

A Hot Topic

Cardi B admitted guilt to assault-related charges earlier this month, according to Comic Book. They related to an altercation that occurred in a New York strip club in 2018. Cardi B took a plea agreement that included 15 days of community service, paying court costs for the other women involved, and avoiding prison time.

Alan Rickman’s Diary Reveals Criticism of Emma Watson

Published

on

If the remarks Alan Rickman made about Emma Watson’s performance in his soon-to-be-published personal diaries are any indication, he was capable of the kind of harsh insults that Harry Potter character Severus Snape would be proud of.

Backstage Talk

The late actor admitted that he had pondered leaving the Potter series with his agency because he had been so uncomfortable filming on some of the movies. He struggled with everything on the Hogwarts set, from his working hours to his coworkers, and had significant issues.

The Direction

The recently discovered journals claim that Alan struggled particularly with Emma Watson, who naturally played Hermione Granger in the movies. “These kids need directing. They don’t know their lines and Emma [Watson]’s diction is this side of Albania at times.” Alan wrote about the kids he performed scenes with.

As Harry, Hermione, and Ron find themselves sparring with their teacher more than ever, Alan had to spend more time in this film with his younger co-stars Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint, and Emma Watson.
