Jamal Murray’s 48-Pointer Has Kyrie Irving BIG Mad.
Jamal Murray scored big with a career-high of 48 points on Monday, and many are excited—except for Kyrie Irving. Irving was so pissed that he threw the ball into the crowd and stormed off the court in response (according to ESPN, Murray shot “19-for-30 overall, 5-for-11 from 3-point range and went 5-for-5 from the foul line”).
“Obviously, I was pissed at the game, but it’s time to decompress and move on,” Irving told ESPN. “Congratulations to him having 48 points. He did it in a great fashion against us. Our defense has to be better, especially against a player like that in the pick-and-roll.”
Irving added: “but the ball deserves to go in the crowd after a bulls— move like that. So I threw it in the crowd.”
Tell ’em why you mad.
The Music Industry Vs. Trump.
Rihanna is the latest musician to send Donald Trump a cease-and-desist letter after finding out he was playing her music during one of his “tragic rallies.”
“It has come to our attention that President Trump has utilized [Rihanna’s] musical compositions and master recordings, including her hit track ‘Don’t Stop the Music,’ in connection with a number of political events held across the United States,” Rihanna’s legal team wrote in the letter to the White House that was obtained by Rolling Stone. “As you are or should be aware, Ms. Fenty has not provided her consent to Mr. Trump to use her music. Such use is therefore improper.”
Riri joins Aerosmith, Pharrell, the Prince estate and others in a fight against politicians using their music to amplify their platforms. Read more here.
