I'm in a Toxic Relationship with the SNKRS App

We love things that hurt us.

Imagine it's 9:59 AM on a Thursday. You've been up since 8:00 AM to purchase the Air Jordan 4 "Sail" on the SNKRS App.

You've made sure that your phone is at 100% and that your service is flawless while making sure your screen doesn't time out.

It's now 10:00 AM. The icon next to the hopefully soon-to-be-yours sneakers indicates they are now available for purchase.

Can We Talk About Michael Jordan Being a Jerk?

Maybe y'all aren't ready for that conversation.

Being the most famous man in the world is hard.

You can't leave your hotel without being swarmed by fans, your every action is analyzed and often criticized, and you're made into a role model you never asked to be. In the 80's and 90's, this was Michael Jordan's reality. At the height of his famous winning streak with the Chicago Bulls, his image was plastered on billboards, TV ads, and sneakers. He was, definitively, the man who changed professional basketball forever and while doing so, he was among the most recognizable and talked about people in the world. Netflix's new docuseries The Last Dance has made all of this abundantly clear. But its also made something else clear: The Michael Jordan of that era was not a kind or compassionate man. In fact, he was arrogant, often selfish, and even cruel to his teammates.

Dennis Rodman's 10 Craziest Looks

From a wedding dress to a silk nightgown, Dennis Rodman had a lot of wild outfits.

The Netflix documentary series The Last Dance has made Dennis Rodman one of the most talked about people in the world, once again.

The docuseries follows the story of the 1997-98 Chicago Bulls. While the first two episodes dealt primarily with Scottie Pippin and Michael Jordan, the third episode delves into the strange trajectory of Dennis Rodman's career. The best rebounder to ever play the game, Rodman was undeniably talented but often unpredictable both on and off the court. He was known for his bizarre fashion choices, his dramatic dating life (he can count both Carmen Electra and Madonna among his exes), and habitual partying. Fans got even more of Rodman's eccentricities in the series' final two episodes, which outline the infamous incident in which Rodman blew off practice in the midst of the Bull's final championship run in order to attend a WCW taping. After a Game 3 blowout of the Utah Jazz, he flew to Detroit from Chicago to wrestle Diamond Dallas Page alongside Hulk Hogan.

Did Lebron James Cast Anthony Davis in "Space Jam 2" To Help the Lakers?

Davis waived his kicker fee, giving the Lakers the ability to recruit another max player.

In what could be the biggest move of the NBA off-season, the Los Angeles Lakers traded Anthony Davis to the New Orleans Pelicans in exchange for Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram, Josh Hart and three first-round picks, including the number 4 overall pick in this year's draft.

But that deal soon changed, and the Lakers traded Mo Wagner, Isaac Bonga, and Jemerrio Jones to the Wizards, meaning many contracts were cleared and the team was left with more cap space for free agency. It's clear that the Lakers secured Davis in order to put another superstar around Lebron in his prime. It's also no small factor that the warriors are out of contention this year, opening up the championship to the field, especially since both Kevin Durant and Klay Thompson are injured.

But perhaps most interestingly, Davis just waived the $4.1 million trade kicker in his contract. That means the Lakers are left with additional room in their free agency salary cap, making it seem likely that the Lakers are aiming to acquire a third star. But why would Davis waive the fee? Is it possible that he did it just for the good of the team? Or is something else going on?

According to Twitter, Lebron is making sure Davis will get his $4.1 million in another way: a big fat paycheck for his appearance in Space Jam 2.


Davis' appearance in the classic movie sequel was announced last month, and many fans think Davis was promised the part in exchange for agreeing to waive the fee. If this is the case, is it breaking any rules? How can anyone prove that the movie has anything to do with the player acquisition process? While we wait for answers, Twitter will continue to deal in wild conjecture and quippy jokes.
