Jimmy Kimmel Rumors
Back-to-back NBA champion Kevin Durant appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live and was asked if he’d be excited if LeBron James could somehow join him on the Golden State Warriors to turn a superteam into, as Kimmel said, “the Harlem Globetrotters.” Durant’s response: “I just don’t think it’ll happen. I don’t want to go there. Somebody’s listening, (they’re) going to write something. I don’t know, I’ll stay on my side.”
Everyone had a good laugh over Isaiah Thomas – the ex-Cleveland Cavalier – trolling his former team on Jimmy Kimmel Liveby saying he was going to get swept like the Cavs. But you should watch the entire “Generation Gap” segment to see just how badly Isaiah lost to Isiah in a game of cross-generational trivia. The 29-year-old understandably doesn’t know the name of a Beverly Hillbilly or an 8-track, but he also whiffs badly on the artist who recorded This is America. Indeed, he got swept. We’ll see if the Cavs lose their next two to the Golden State Warriors to prove Isaiah’s prediction was correct.

During All-Star media availability, he finally got his chance … and asked him one important question: Can you describe your perfect salad? James laughed and answered: “I don’t have a perfect salad, I need protein, I need a vegetable, I need a fruit.”
So the Jimmy Kimmel Live host had to address it, of course. He said he smiled because he loves The Star-Spangled Banner so much. Then, he made a good point after noting Fergie said she was a risk-taker: “Here’s the thing about taking risks: When it comes to the national anthem, don’t. Don’t take risks when you’re doing brain surgery, don’t take risks when you’re driving a school bus, or singing the National Anthem. Just regular is fine.”
Will Smith was a guest on Thursday night’s episode of “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” and spoke briefly about his friendship with Michael Jordan, who, along with Tiger Woods, he considers the most competitive person on the planet. According to Smith, Jordan will turn even the most mundane of activities into a competition. “I love being around people with that kind of competitive energy, but like, Mike will compete with anything, though,” Smith said. “If we’re drinking water, Mike be: ‘I’ll race you!'”
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.
