Dwyane Wade Is Releasing a Memoir This Year.

Now that Dwyane Wade is retired, he can focus on other ventures — like writing a memoir, for example. The Associated Press reports that Wade’s book, 3 Dimensional, will be published this fall on Oct. 22. The “memoir-in-photos” will highlight “essential principles” from both his life and career, AP says.

Wade referred to his story as a “rollercoaster journey,” and in an interview with ESPN, he shared that he has plans to go to therapy now that he’s entered his next chapter.

“This is what I know, like, my life has been this. it’s not all that I am, of course, but this is the main part of it. From the standpoint of it makes everything work,” he shared. “I told my wife, I said, I need to do therapy and we need to do a little bit. I was always against someone that don’t know me telling me how to live my life or giving me instructions. But I need someone to talk to about it. Because it is a big change. Even though I got a long life to live, other great things I can accomplish and do, it’s not this. So it’s going to be different.”

Drake’s Music Has Been Banned by a Bay Area Radio Station for the Remainder of the NBA Finals.

If you live in the Bay Area, you won’t be hearing any Drizzy playing on KBLX has after the radio station issued a ban on Drake’s tunes for the rest of the 2019 NBA Finals. The reason? Let’s just say they’re not too happy with Aubrey’s support of the Toronto Raptors.

“(We) could not stand on the sidelines and accept Drake showing no love for our Golden State Warriors,” Elroy Smith, KBLX operations and programs director, stated regarding the ban. “It is my joy to cease and desist all of Drake’s music on KBLX in support a team that is loved by the Bay Area and around the world. Oh yes, we are proclaiming a 3-peat.”

Guess his Steph Curry and Kevin Durant tats don’t mean much:

Things Are Looking Rough for GameStop Right Now.

Thanks to the advent of streaming, sales of physical games and consoles are struggling, says CNN. So much, that the company saw a 13 percent drop in its first-quarter sales, later announcing that “it would no longer pay investors a quarterly dividend.” Their stock also plummeted by 36 percent on Wednesday.

“Downloads have overtaken CDs,” CNN continues. “Mobile gaming is satisfying casual gamers. And video game streaming is a fledgling business that could make serious competitors out of Google (GOOGL), Amazon (AMZN) and Apple (AAPL). GameStop is a record store in the age of iTunes and Spotify.”

And it doesn’t stop there.

“Adding to the company’s misery,” CNN adds, “GameStop said customers are holding off video game console purchases, because they’re waiting for Sony and Microsoft (MSFT) to release new versions of the PlayStation and Xbox.”
