USA Basketball Explains Why Kevin Love Made The Olympic Roster

USA Basketball executive director Jerry Colangelo claimed second team All-NBA forward Julius Randle was “ right there ” for an Olympic roster spot, but was edged out by Jerami Grant, Kevin Love and Draymond Green for the power forwards slots. Someone is always going to get snubbed with a subjective process and a finite spots to fill, but from a numbers standpoint this past season, Kevin Love should have been awarded the job of washing Randle’s Olympic jersey and fetching him snacks from vending machine in Tokyo. That’s to say nothing of the injuries Love’s been grappling with over the past two seasons. Jalen Rose made waves last week for claiming Love, who averaged 12 points per game in just 25 games last season, solely made the team due to “tokenism,” and USA Basketball was afraid to send an all-black team to Tokyo. Rose later apologized when he was made aware that USA Basketball sent an all-black team in 2016. In any event, on Tuesday Colangelo fielded questions as to the decision-m

Chadwick Boseman Dies Without A Will

College Football Helmets Inspired By Marvel Comics

                                     On the football field, the Duke Blue Devils could use the otherworldly senses of Marvel's Daredevil.             It's hard to improve on the classic Pittsburgh Panthers helmet. But we did. Pittsburgh Black Panthers, forever.  WITIN RADIO · Interview: Heather Antos: Assistant Editor: Marvel Entertainment In the spirit of Marvel Comics' What If, what if Homer wrote Hercules into The Iliad, and had the strongman single-handedly defeat the Trojan warriors? Well, clearly, what would happen is modern-day college football fans would be rooting for -- or against -- the USC Hercules instead of the USC Trojans . Clearly.(And, yes, Hercules is a Marvel character. The figure of Greek mythology was first appropriated for Marvel's purposes via the Thor-fronted title, Journey into Mystery .) The Iowa State Cyclones aim play up a storm, so why not just adopt a powerful X-Men character -- and become the Iowa State Storm? The Marvel hero Moon K

Lebron James’ Voting Rights Group Will Help Cover Your Lyft Ride To Vote

                             Texas Governor Greg Abbott is facing two voting rights lawsuits over an order allowing Texas counties to provide no more than one drop-off location for voters with absentee ballots. The last-minute law is part of an enormous controversy in the U.S. about the security of mail-in voting, the reliability of the U.S. Postal Service and safely voting during a pandemic. Abbott’s order forced Harris County — home to 2.4 million voters covering a swath of the land larger than Rhode Island — to shutter eleven of its twelve ballot drop-off sites, resulting in potentially enormous lines. But if you live in Harris County, want to vote but don’t know how to get to your county’s only ballot box, never fear. Lebron’s got you. WITIN RADIO · Interview: Sonny Weems

"Death is just a different kind of journey…to the land that I am king of," the quote reads. WITIN RADIO · Interview: Heather Antos: Assistant Editor: Marvel Entertainment "In the Black Panther mythos, T'Challa often retreats to his City of the Dead, where all the previous kings and queens of Wakanda have been buried. There, T'Challa finds wisdom and counsel from his ancestors who have gone before," Coates continued, before explaining how he and Boseman's paths crossed when they were students at Howard University in Washington, DC.                                   "I got to watch him through the years — advancing out of student theater, on to TV and film, and then finally cast as T'Challa. He was perfect. He had T'Challa's royal spirit, the sense that he
