Why Gregg Popovich is such a powerful critic of Donald Trump

TwitterFacebook

One of the NBA‘s most respected figures just lit into Donald Trump – again. 

It’s definitely not the first time Gregg Popovich, a five-time NBA champ with the San Antonio Spurs, has done this. And it’s almost certainly not the last. 

We’ll soon get to why Popovich’s criticism carries more weight than it might seem at first blush – but first, his latest monologue. It’s a doozy. 

“I feel like there’s a cloud, a pall over the whole country, in a paranoid, surreal sort of way,” Trump said on Sunday before the Spurs lost to the Golden State Warriors in Game 1 of their NBA Playoffs series. “It’s got nothing to do with the Democrats losing the election. It’s got to do with the way one individual conducts himself, and it’s embarrassing, it’s dangerous to our institutions and what we all stand for and what we expect the country to be. But for this individual, he’s in a game show.”  Read more…

Eric Wareheim on the too-real ‘Master of None’ online dating episode

TwitterFacebook

Master of None is nothing if not almost painfully relatable. Season 2 Episode 4, “First Date” is a sweet but contemplative portrait of modern dating, directed by Eric Wareheim who plays Dev’s (Aziz Ansari) best friend Arnold. 

“The idea was that when you’re doing a lot of online dating, it feels like you’re meeting all these people and its’…the same kind of thing, getting to know you really quick.” Wareheim told Mashable via phone interview. “That whole thing can get super exhausting, and we hope to catch that feeling in the episode.”

TwitterFacebook

Our parents are our biggest fans whether we’re the team’s #1 player or the equipment manager.

Celebrity parents are no exception to this fandom. Actress Julia Louis-Dreyfus got totally pumped Thursday, as any parent would, to watch her son, Charlie Hall, play basketball for Northwestern University in their win over Rutgers.

Charlie is a walk-on for Northwestern, so he doesn’t get much playing time. But, Julia and her husband, Brad Hall, are loyal fans who attend game after game to cheer on their son and his team.

As the split-screen shows, she’s pretty excited, yet focused, as her son makes a great rebound. And of course, she has her camera ready, snapping shots of this very proud moment (probably to show off to all her celeb friends). Read more…
