Lil Wayne made it a trending topic all morning — his appearance once again on ESPN First Take that had many speculating about such actual appearance. Wayne talks softly and he may be construed as aloof, but it doesn’t seem that unusual to me. Maybe it’s because he predicted the Lakers are making the playoffs?
It was about the content of the whole segment for me though and Weezy talked about his beloved Packers losing Jordy Nelson yesterday to a torn ACL, how he became a Packers fan in the first place, his views on Tom Brady & Deflategate, and finally: a rave review of Straight Outta Compton. ICYMI, enjoy up above.
Down below, no offense, but I was more interested in Jimmy Butler’s visit with Skip & Stephen A. The full 16 minute segment touches on Butler’s alleged beef with teammate Derrick Rose (I still don’t believe this and Jimmy’s words are further evidence), the coaching change from Thibs to Hoiberg, and Butler’s increasingly fun off-court personality, including listening to Taylor Swift before games. The ESPN tweet of the clip likely led to Taylor Swift following our own Jimmy Butler on Twitter… Oooohhhh… Enjoy below.
Today’s NBA themed First Take took place at All-Star Weekend and a trio of guests came thru the debate desk. Kevin Hart is back and it’s always a good time. He has some real nice burns on Stephen A. so watch above and below for that.
Fab and Nelly also came through and offered some serious insight on the NBA. This was one episode I went out of my way to tune into live so with that said, press play ICYMI.
The crossover of rappers on First Take isn’t getting old for me and next up to return to the debate desk is Fabolous. Here, he talks about the surging Cowboys and if they’re for real… and also some Kobe Bryant discussion too. Plus, Fab was there to plug what’s shaping up to be a dope concert for the 30th Anniversary of Def Jam.
Jadakiss is the latest rapper to join Stephen A. and Skip on ESPN’s First Take as they talk some football and boxing above and below. NY Giants, NFC East, and will Mayweather ever fight Manny Pacquiao?
