What’s Beef? Kevin Durant, Dwyane Wade Fire Shots Over Twitter

Published

on

Kevin Durant has an issue with Dwyane Wade being ranked one of the top 10 players in the NBA by Sports Illustrated. That’s because the NBA superstar thinks his former teammate James Harden should be on the list instead … at least that’s the comment he made during an interview with CineSport.

On Tuesday night, Wade posted an image of a handwritten note on his Instagram account addressing the Durant’s opinion:

“9-24-13: Kevin Durant said James Harden should replace me in the top 10 …. Note to self: Make him respect your place in history .. — again.”

Wade and his Miami Heat defeated Durant and his Oklahoma City Thunder in five games during the 2012 NBA Finals … hence the “Make him respect your place in history again” line. Wade, a former NBA Finals MVP, captioned the image: “Don’t believe me just watch.”

After seeing the note, Durant took to Twitter to send Wade another message:

“Show me don’t tweet me.”

Something tells us that when the NBA season picks back up, Wade will do all he can to do just that.

She’s Gotta Have It: Is Ilfenesh Hadera Spike Lee’s New Muse?

Published

We all know Spike Lee loves working with the same actors over and over again. And in some cases new up-and-comers who go on to be Hollywood A-listers. Think Denzel Washington, Samuel L. Jackson, Rosario Dawson.

Now it seems it’s Ilfenesh Hadera’s turn. The actress of Ethiopian decent has worked with Spike Lee four times: in the 2011 Mike Tyson TV movie Da Brick, in 2013’s Oldboy, in Chiraq playing Ms. McCloud and in his upcoming Netflix series She’s Gotta Have It.

Hadera told us she believes it’s because of Lee’s commitment to diversity that he tends to hire the same actors multiple times.

“If you look at his body of work you see he’s worked with Rosario over and over, [John] Turturro over and over, Mekhi Phifer over and over so he finds talent, new talent and gives them a chance and if more directors did that maybe we would be more represented in the media … God bless him for that,” she said.

Now with 30+ years and countless films under his belt, Lee is bringing his first feature, She’s Gotta Have It, back to life, in a 10-episode Netflix binge debuting Nov. 23.

Hadera, who plays Opal Gilstrap in the series, told us Lee had hinted that he would be bringing his 1986 directorial debut to Netflix and wanted her to be apart of it.

“We had worked together a lot and he had been giving me little hints that this was in the works so I was like let me go back and watch [She’s Gotta Have It] again.”

Like the original, SGHI follows Nola Darling (played by DeWanda Wise) a twenty-something woman living in Brooklyn, New York exploring her sexual identity as she juggles a host of colorful suitors.

As for if this is Hadera’s final time working with Lee, we think not. 2017 has already been an amazing year for the 5’10 beauty with roles on the big and small screen in Baywatch, Billions and Master Of None.
