Fans Rumors

First, everyone wanted to know why Drake, a world-famous rapper, was sitting courtside in Oklahoma City on a Wednesday night to watch a humdrum Thunder-Rockets game. The next question: Who was the chatty senior couple next to him, and did they have any clue who the celebrity in the furry red coat was? “Well, I knew his name was Drake,” Renee Stanley told The Oklahoman, “but I didn’t know he was a rapper, and I didn’t know how popular he was. But let me tell ya, everybody else around me let me know.”
Drake’s “new parents” are Renee, 71, and Jim Stanley, 75, of Oklahoma City. Yes, “my new parents” was how Drake captioned a selfie with the Stanleys that he shared to his 97.2 million Instagram followers. Credit Renee Stanley for the caption. “Just tell everybody we’re your new parents,” Renee told Drake when he asked if they could take a selfie. “And that’s when my phone blew up,” Renee said, “because he did.”
With 2:29 left in the extra period, James brought referee Rodney Mott over to the sideline and demonstratively pointed and gestured at two fans. An arena official approached, then another, and after a brief conversation with Mott, the officials escorted a man and a woman from their first-row seats on the floor. As they left the court, the woman appeared to make a pouting face and crying motion in James’ direction.
After the game, James did not elaborate on what the fans specifically said or did, only describing their actions as “outside the line with obscene gestures and words.” “When obscene gestures and language come into it, (it) can’t be tolerated,” James said. “There’s a difference from cheering for your team and not wanting the other team to win and things I would never say to a fan and they shouldn’t say to me.”
A photo of the Nets star’s legs (or at least a tiny bit of it) is making its rounds on social media. The picture was supposed to showcase KD’s kicks, but the trolls on Twitter decided to focus on Durant’s rather peculiar skin condition. If you look at the first picture closely, there’s a small bit of skin showing on his left foot right above his socks. Unsurprisingly, the keyboard warriors had a field day at the Nets star’s expense. Durant has had enough of the slander and not to anyone’s surprise, the former league MVP decided to fire back at his haters via Twitter. Kevin Durant: I’m bouta pull my “y’all broke” card in a second. F— y’all.
