With 8 seconds left in the Nets-Lakers game and Lakers Guard Jodie Meeks preparing to shoot game-clinching free throws for Los Angeles, Nets Coach Jason Kidd spilled his drink on the floor, causing the game to be briefly delayed before Meeks hit his free throws to put Brooklyn’s comeback effort to bed. Why was Kidd drinking instead of drawing up a play? Was he trying to ice the shooter? What was in his drink? Who will drive him home? So many questions, and we’ll never have the answers… Or do we? Was this intentional? A video posted of the incident shows Jason Kidd apparently saying “Hit Me” to Taylor right before the spill…
After rapper Kendrick Lamar got the internet buzzing after calling out every relevant rapper from his era Monday Night, another rapper has decided he is up for a challenge. That rapper happens to be Knicks guard Iman Shumpert, a promising young athlete who has dabbled in the rap game as his “side hustle”. Shumpert recently scored a gig on First Lady Michelle Obama’s upcoming rap album (yes, that is happening, but Michelle will not rap on the album herself), and is clearly feeling pretty confident. Shumpert dropped his latest freestyle yesterday, and just announced that “He Will Respond” to Lamar’s aggressive comments toward other young rappers.
Shumpert ended up making a response track called “Dear Kendrick”. First, he tweeted this:
Then, he dropped this
And at the end of the song, he says he wants to be a Knick for life. So this was a pretty fun sequence of events.
