Future is really a thorn in Scottie Pippen’s side.
Pippen filed for divorce from wife Larsa in October, but the two reportedly are working on getting back together and do not appear to be proceeding with the split.
But Future is doing his best to mess things up for Scottie.
Future was cited as the reason why Pippen filed for divorce in the first place, as the former NBA player was upset with the rapper’s relationship with his wife.
Larsa posted this picture on Instagram Sunday, and
Kevin Olsen, the quarterback at UNC Charlotte and younger brother of Carolina Panthers tight end Greg Olsen, has been arrested on rape charges.
Reports say Olsen has been charged with 2nd degree forcible rape, cyberstalking, assault on a female, and 2nd degree force sex offense.
He has been suspended from all football activities.
Here is a statement from the school about the matter:
“The University administration has been in close communication with the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Depart
Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant teamed up for a nice give-and-go at the All-Star Game on Sunday, proving that whatever bad blood exists between them off the court does not spill onto it — at least during exhibitions.
Midway during the first quarter of the All-Star Game, Westbrook passed to Durant, who then fed the ball back to Russ for a nice alley-oop dunk:

What the video doesn’t
There’s Russell Westbrook, and then there’s everybody else.
Westbrook is known for having a strong personality and marching to the beat of his own drum. Those personality traits appeared to be on display during pregame warmups for Sunday’s NBA All-Star Game.
According to reporters in attendance who captured both photo and video evidence, the Oklahoma City Thunder star warmed up on one basket, separate from the rest of his Western Conference All-Star teammates.
The New Orleans Pelicans are aggressively trying to find another superstar to go with Anthony Davis.
According to Justin Verrier of ESPN, the Pelicans are making pretty much everyone but Davis available in trade talks. That includes No. 1 pick Buddy Hield, and as part of that process, they’ve discussed adding Paul George as well as DeMarcus Cousins.
Pelicans have made trade inquiries on DeMarcus Cousins and Paul George, per league sources. Talks have progressed further on Cousins.
The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim boast the best player in baseball, but the team has made the playoffs in just one of Mike Trout’s five MLB seasons.
After a 74-88 season in 2016, Trout admitted that the team’s repeated failure to make the playoffs has grown frustrating for him.
“It’s frustrating, for sure,” Trout said, via Jorge L. Ortiz of USA Today. “You want to get to the playoffs. It’s fun. You’ve seen the World Series last year. You want to
DeMarcus Cousins said this week that he wants to remain with the Sacramento Kings for the long haul, but it appears the feeling may not be mutual.
Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical reported on Sunday that the Kings have been engaging in trade talks for Cousins.

Whoever set up the locker layout in the Western Conference All-Star dressing room doesn’t seem interested in forcing awkward interactions between Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook.
NBATV’s Tas Melas shared a video from the locker room showing Durant and Westbrook’s lockers on opposite sides of the spacious area.

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo has no interest in playing for a rebuilding team in 2017, and he is reportedly willing to rework his contract if it helps assure that does not happen.
According to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports, Romo is open to “massaging” his current contract in order to to provide salary cap relief for a contending team that might be willing to trade for him. Romo’s base salary for 2017 is a reasonable $14 million, but his salary cap hits for the next th
We all know there are some parents of young athletes out there who are very bullish on their children’s skills. LaVar Ball goes above and beyond that.
Ball, the father of UCLA freshman sensation Lonzo Ball, told Pac-12 Network that as far as he’s concerned, Lonzo is already better than reigning NBA MVP Stephen Curry.
“I have the upmost confidence in what my boy is doing,” LaVar Ball said, via Andrew Holleran of College Spun. “I’m going to tell you right now,
Tampa Bay Rays outfielder Mallex Smith came to his current team by way of the Seattle Mariners. His tenure in the Pacific Northwest lasted just 77 minutes, as he was traded twice in one day.
Smith looked back on his illustrious tenure with the Mariners, and the quotes are pretty hilarious.

With the NBA trade deadline less than a week away, it appears less likely than ever that the New York Knicks will be dealing Carmelo Anthony.
Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical reported over the weekend that Anthony is not planning to waive his no-trade clause.
“As of right now, Carmelo Anthony’s intention, sources tell me, is to remain in New York,” Wojnarowski said. “He hasn’t been brought any deal in recent days — even during All-Star weekend — that
It sounds like Jimmermania is taking a new country by storm.
Jimmer Fredette, now playing for the Chinese Basketball Association’s Shanghai Sharks, put up 73 points on Sunday – on 49 field goal attempts – in his team’s 135-132 double overtime defeat to Zhejiang.
Jimmer had 73 pts on 25/49 shooting (13/13 FTs), 4 reb, 3 ast, and 3 stl in a 135-132 2OT loss to Zhejiang. He was 10/18 from three.

James Harden may or may not be the best basketball player in the word. He’s certainly not lacking in self-belief either way.
Harden told Sam Gregory of TIME, when asked, that he definitely considers himself the best player on the planet right now.
“For sure. I feel like I’m solid in everything: IQ, studying the game, I can score the basketball, make my teammates better,” Harden said. “There are not a lot of guys that have all those characteristics in one. They migh
There is at least a willingness on the part of NBA commissioner Adam Silver to assess the current NBA age minimum.
In fact, he says that he and NBPA director Michele Roberts agree that the issue should be studied long before the next collective bargaining agreement is negotiated.
“Well, first of all, we absolutely need the union in order to revisit the age,” Silver said, via Ohm Youngmisuk of ESPN. “The current age minimum of 19 years old, but something Michele and I discussed
The New England Patriots could suddenly find themselves very thin at the tight end position if Rob Gronkowski is unable to recover quickly and Martellus Bennett leaves as a free agent, but they are hoping neither will be an issue.
Mark Daniels of the Providence Journal expects the Patriots to “make a run” at re-signing Bennett in the coming weeks despite the fact that he is considered the top tight end entering the free agent pool. As Daniels notes, having Bennett under contract wou
