#LeBronJames Responds To Speculators Saying He Said He Was Coming Back To Miami……..oh and he’s injured for 2 weeks


lebron
LeBron James is out for two weeks and on the injury list in order to heal some back and knee issues. Specifically, his left knee and issues with a lower back strains. Some former Miami-based LeBron fans might be in love with any misery James may suffer, but most of us will never want to see one of the game’s best of all time fall to injury or hardship especially during the peak of their career.
With that said, LeBron was on some hot water for some words he said to Dwyane Wade ♫ #aboutaweekago ♫ during the Heat vs. Cavs Christmas game. Internet hypebeasts and LeBron critics jumped on the possibility that LeBron might have told something to Dwyane in the extent of reuniting back in Miami. Anyone with healthy brain with common sense could already know this story was bullshit.

VIDEO of People Lined Up Outside Of Grand Central for The Secret J. Cole In Miami That Wasn’t Even Announced Yet



Breaking video of the line outside of Grand Central. 150 people in line more or less lined up for “supposed” secret show by J. Cole. This is BEFORE J. Cole even confirmed it so its pretty interesting to see the dedication and/or how news leaked to a small group of people. So again, show is still not confirmed at Grand Central, yet people are lining up. Details Developing.
Also, Grand Central was kind enough to buy pizza for some of the people in the line as a nice gesture (pictures below).

kanye-west-adidas
Kanye West’s Yeezys have always caused a stir. And now that he’s jumped ship from Nike to Adidas, Kanye revealed at the Adidas Global Brand Conference in Germany that “In June, we’ll see the new Yeezis.”
The new shoes will be branded “YEEZI” and not “Air Yeezy” in a move that is probably to prevent any litigation from Nike and etc.
