This is really powerful.

Unable to stay silent any longer in the face of multiple instances of unnecessary deaths of black men at the hands of police officers, as well as the horrific, targeted killings of officers in response, NBA superstar Michael Jordan has brought his voice to the conversation, and it is sobering.

Jordan penned a piece for The Undefeated in which, acknowledging that, as the son of a victim of gun violence — Jordan's father was murdered two decades ago in a crime that has never been solved — he is looking for a solution to the recent stories of police brutality and horror.

NBA Pulls All-Star Game From North Carolina Over Anti-LGBT Legislation!

Filed under: Gay Gay GayZportzLegal MattersPolitikBasketballNBAViral: NewsTransgenderLGBT

Way to go, NBA!

The NBA has had enough of North Carolina's anti-LGBT bullsh*t!

On Thursday, the Association announced that it will NOT be hosting the 2017 All-Star Game at Charlotte's Time Warner Cable Arena because of the state's controversial bathroom bill.

This comes less than a week after NC's lawmakers had a chance to change up HB2 — which notably forces transgender individuals to use the bathrooms associated with their biological sex, rather than the gender with which they identify — but instead left the law intact.

And now, Commissioner Adam Silver has had enough.

In a new statement, the NBA explained that they can't wait any longer for the awful legislation to change, saying:

"The NBA has decided to relocate the 2017 All-Star Game from Charlotte with the hope of rescheduling for 2019. Since March, when North Carolina enacted HB2 and the issue of legal protections for the LGBT community in Charlotte became prominent, the NBA and the Charlotte Hornets have been working diligently to foster constructive dialogue and try to effect positive change. We have been guided in these discussions by the long-standing core values of our league. These include not only diversity, inclusion, fairness and respect for others but also the willingness to listen and consider opposing points of view."

The basketball league also explained that the discriminatory bill does not uphold the NBA's values:

Kendall Jenner Attends Rumored BF Jordan Clarkson's Basketball Game

Filed under: Love LineBasketballKendall JennerNBAKUWTKESPYSJames Harden

Kendall Jenner and Jordan Clarkson

Kendall Jenner continues to keep us guessing about her relationship with Jordan Clarkson.

ICYMI: The 24-year-old Lakers player kept it coy last week and neither confirmed or denied dating the KUWTK star when asked by Extra at the ESPYS. The two have reportedly been "casually dating" since earlier this spring.

On Sunday, the 20-year-old certainly added fuel to those rumors as she sat directly behind the bench supporting Clarkson at his basketball game. How girlfriend-y of her!

Photogs snapped some pics as Kenny looked focused on the game (or on her phone…), which also was played by Khloé Kardashian's ex James Harden and the always-controversial Nick Young.

At one point you can see Young whispering something apparently funny in Jordan's ear as K.J. looks their way in the background.

The model looked casual in a black crop top, denim shorts, a Saint Laurent black sailor hat, and one eye on her maybe man piece.

Interesting!!

We don't know about you, but we're certainly starting to be sold on this rumor! What do U think??

NBA Legend Nate Thurmond Passes Away At 74

Filed under: ZportzR.I.P.Sad SadTwitterBasketballLeBron JamesNBA

The loss of a sports legend — and a direct inspiration to LeBron James.

Nate Thurmond died on Friday after succumbing to a short battle with leukemia. The NBA legend and Hall of Famer was 74 years old.

Thurman set all kinds of NBA records and spent 14 years in the league, 11 of which were in San Francisco with the Golden State Warriors.

He was a seven-time league All-Star, too, and became the first player in league history when, in 1974, he recorded an official quadruple double (double digits in points, rebounds, assists, and blocks).

The Warriors' team president, Joe Lacob, released a statement following Thurman's death:

"We've lost one of the most iconic figures in the history of not only our organization, but the NBA in general."

And LeBron himself tweeted a very poignant message about it (below):

Kendall Jenner Flashes Her Abs While A$AP Rocky Flips The Bird During A Night Out Together In LA!

Filed under: Kendall JennerNBAKUWTK

Kendall Jenner and ASAP Rocky

Kendall Jenner is back, back in Cali, Cali!

After working in Rome and hanging in the Big Apple over the past few weeks, the 20-year-old has made her return to her family's kingdom — and is hitting the streets with longtime pal A$AP Rocky!

The KUWTK star looked super edgy as she arrived to an El Lay hotel alongside the rapper on Wednesday night in this black crop top paired with flare jeans, black boots, and of course, a black choker.

The 27-year-old matched the look with an all-black ensemble of his own — and a sassy attitude to match!

We don't think these two are anything romantic — especially since Kenny was most recently paired with NBA player Jordan Clarkson — but she's so tight-lipped about her love life, we wouldn't be surprised by anything!

Welcome back, K.J.!
