Donald Trump Makes A New Celebrity Enemy As He SLAMS Kareem Abdul-Jabbar! But The NBA Legend Has The Last Laugh!
Surprise surprise, he's at it again!
Donald Trump just can't seem to stop being the most defensive person EVER!
NBA legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar recently wrote an op-ed for the Washington Post titled, "This is the difference between Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders."
As you can imagine, the article slams Trump for several things including his beef with Megyn Kelly saying the GOP candidate "attack[ed] the First Amendment's protection of a free press by menacing journalists," as well as Donald not caring about being politically correct!
Well, in true Trump fashion, the presidential hopeful wasn't going to let Kareem have the last word and had to resort to bullying once again!
Instead of taking to Twitter as he normally does though, Donald figured his time was best spent writing a handwritten note to Kareem and mailing it to him.
Luckily for us the Hall of Famer posted it to Facebook:
The world of basketball has lost one of its brightest stars as slam dunking legend Darryl Dawkins passed away Thursday morning at the age of 58.
The former NBA star was reportedly taken to the hospital for an unknown medial emergency where he died at approximately 11:19 AM.
An autopsy is currently set for tomorrow; sources are already saying there's no suspicion of foul play in his death.
Darryl was the first NBA player to be drafted straight out of high school and he earned the nickname "Chocolate Thunder" for his monstrous dunks.
The game of basketball would not be what it is today if it weren't for Darryl, and he will truly be missed.

This is pretty crazy.
Basketball player Derrick Rose is being sued by a woman, only going by Jane Doe, who claims the former MVP and two friends drugged and gang raped her.
Ms. Jane Doe claims that she and the Chicago Bulls played dated from 2011 to 2013. While they dated she says that he tried to get her to masturbate in front of him, and even tried to have sex with her friends and have group sex with them!
The plaintiff says that the relationship ended in August of 2013 when the NBA player and his two friends, Ryan Allen and Randall Hampton — who also happens to be Rose's personal manager — invited her to Rose's home in Beverly Hills. That's when she says they drugged her drink with the intention of raping her.
The accuser says that she escaped the house with a friend of hers but later that night,
Does this mean Glory Johnson and Brittney Griner can FINALLY move on?
On Thursday, a judge in Arizona denied WNBA star Glory spousal support from her wife of 28 days, Brittney. And it was just earlier this week, a judge shut down Britt's request that the May marriage be annulled due to Glory's alleged cheating with an ex-boyfriend.
Well, you lose some and you win some, right?!
Surprisingly, Johnson wasn't upset by the court's decision to deny her $20,000 a MONTH, saying:
Well this is good news!
But, on Monday she made the incredible announcement: she's having twin girls!
The 24-year-old pro hoop star posted a shot to Instagram (above), and captioned the pic:
Talk about being shot down!
On Saturday, basketball star Matt Barnes was caught gushing about Rihanna claiming that he and the B*tch Better Have My Money singer were in the "crush" stage of their relationship.
"Rihanna is my friend right now, so we'll see where it goes. It just passed the crush stage a little bit."
Which would make sense since as he is still technically married to Gloria Govan.
However, it appears that RiRi is 100% confused by these romantic rumors linking her with the Memphis Grizzlies player.
On Sunday, the starlet took to Instagram to shut down any notion that she and Matt were an item or that they even actually knew each other.

Now this is how to live like a king!
Earlier this week, LeBron James announced that he's partnering with the University of Akron and offering full college scholarships to potentially thousands of children coming out of his I Promise campaign!
The campaign and scholarship — the requirements of which haven't been fully finalized yet — will likely be something like this: for every student in Akron, Ohio to finish LeBron's I Promise campaign in high school (and there are nearly 2,300 of them!), the basketball star will cover their college tuition at UA!
The first eligible group is this year's class, currently in seventh grade, which will graduate high school in 2021 and be sent off en masse to college by King James himself!
LeBron spoke about the scholarships, telling reporters:
