None other than actor and singer Jamie Foxx performing “You’ll Still Have Cleveland” dedicated to Cavs fans dealing with the NBA Finals lost to Golden State on Monday. Foxx, who spoke about his support for Cavs forward LeBron James with Kimmel, made references to the All Star forward as well as Cleveland natives Halle Berry, Drew Carey, and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame during his performance.
Jeremy Schaap is host and traveled last June to the seacoast village of Liepaja to spend time with Porzingis, his brothers and his parents. Footage was filmed in the house where he grew up (his parents still live there) and the Baltic Sea beach minutes away at which the 7-foot-3 forward spent relaxing times despite military detritus left over from World War II. “He’s the most famous Latvian in the world,’’ Schaap told The Post. “From what I could tell in my few days there, they take a lot of pride in him.”

While the Los Angeles Lakers are diligently preparing for the NBA Draft, members of the young core are hard at work getting ready for next season and occasionally having some fun in their spare time. One of the perks of playing in Los Angeles is the media recognition that comes with it, and young power forward Julius Randle parlayed his Lakers fame into a spot on a recent episode of “Jimmy Kimmel Live!“. On the show, Kimmel complained about the lack of goofy local TV ads featuring NBA players these days. They do still exist (Sacramento has the Pizza Guy ads and San Antonio boasts some hilarious H-E-B Grocery spots), but they aren’t as prevalent as they used to be. In order to rectify the problem, Kimmel has Randle appear in a low-budget ad for a local rocking chair store and hilarity ensues:
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and HBO dropped the new trailer for the third season of Ballers,a fairly realistic TV series in which The Rock acts as a retired football player named Spencer Strasmore. It’s probably not a coincidence that Warriors star Steph Curry and his wife Ayesha are in the beginning of this trailer that was released on the same day as Game 1 of the NBA Finals.
