Dwyane Wade Posts a Hilarious Video to Hype Up the Boston Celtics-Miami Heat Rivalry Ahead of NBA ECF

We all have waited way too long for this. A matchup that can either set the record straight for the Boston Celtics or they will dig a deeper hole for themselves. Miami Heat ascended to the Eastern Conference Finals for the first time since 2014. Not only that, they sent home the top-seeded Milwaukee Bucks to make that happen. On the other hand, come the Boston Celtics who defeated the defending champions, Toronto Raptors to get here. They played all 7 games and eventually came out as a winner and are set to face their old rivals.

This current matchup is history repeating itself. The two teams met in 2012 at the same stage with the same stakes in place. However, this did not really end well for the Celtics and the Heat beat them by 4-3. The Celtics were initially leading till game 5 but LeBron’s iconic 45 points performance in game 6 landed them into a tie and eventually proceeded to the NBA Finals. It is considered one of LeBron’s best performances even till date.

This is a defeat the Celtics will never be able to forget. It was an opportunity the Heat took right out of their hands, which is what they’ll be looking to avenge this time.

Dwyane Wade is rooting for the Miami Heat

The Heat was known because of having the ‘Big Three’ in its team. The trio included LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, and Chris Bosh. These were the top scorers for the franchise and eventually led the Heat to win back-to-back championships in 2012 and 2013.

With the Celtics and Miami Heat about to recreate history, Dwyane showed some support on Instagram for his former team. He posted a video of ‘The Rock’ shouting “Go Heat B****” and throwing an individual wearing the Celtics jersey. The caption for the video is “Game Day! Let’s Goooo #heatnation“.

 

Clearly Wade is all hyped up as the two teams prepare to rekindle the iconic rivalry once again at the big stage. Both are riding high on confidence and anything can happen, especially considering the stage of the season where we’re at. Will Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown and the rest of the team come on top? Or will Jimmy Butler led Miami manage to hold their ground like they did with the Bucks? Only time can tell.

Daria Gavrilova Pokes Fun At Serena Williams' Outfit at French Open 2020

When you’re sailing along with the winds of success, you’ll often find opportunities to have fun. Specifically, when you’ve successfully ousted one of the seeded players, you are free to do so. Daria Gavrilova engaged in light humor with Serena Williams after she won her French Open 2020 tie against Dayana Yastremska.

The 20-year-old Ukrainian lost her way against Daria in the opening round of the Roland Garros. The weather in Paris is different this time. Owing to the delay because of the COVID-19 situation, players miss the hot and humid Paris afternoon as the weather is on the colder side. Occasional rainfall and winds are causing the temperature to linger low.

Playing in these conditions, the players are forced to wear covered outfits. Daria went into the match wearing an all-black attire.

23 time Grand Slam winner Serena Williams also played her first match at the French open 2020. Similar to the outfit of Daria, Serena was wearing an all-black outfit. The Australian, therefore, lost no time in throwing a bit of humor owing to the similarity in the two dresses.

“Serena copied my outfit,” the tweet read.

Serena Williams starts off with a bang

Williams had an adventurous start to her French Open 2020 campaign today. Up against compatriot Kristie Ahn, she struggled in the first set. At one point, it seemed like Ahn was going to pocket the first set owing to a few service breaks. However, Serena Williams held on to her fight to go all the way to the tiebreaker and clinch the first set.

The second set saw Serena in her usual form. In the first half, Kristie had ample opportunities to take the set. In the second set, Serena completely dominated the show. Ramming in lethal services and returns, she clinched the second set without letting her opponent claim a game. Proceeding to the second round, she will face Tsvetana Pironkova of Bulgaria.

Daria Gavrilova had a great match as well. Unlike Serena, she showed complete domination in both the sets. Sweeping away Yastremska in straight sets, she set up her second-round clash with Canadian Eugenie Bouchard.

Conor McGregor, Dana White feud escalates after exposed messages

Conor McGregor, Dana White feud escalates after exposed messages

It may just be Conor McGregor vs. Dana White in the octagon soon.

On Sunday morning, McGregor tweeted that White should “stop lying,” in reference to comments White has previously made about the former double champion’s desire to fight in a potential boxing match against Manny Pacquiao.

Just two days earlier, McGregor took to Twitter to post several screenshots of Instagram direct messages between him and White from earlier this year. The screenshots, which have since been deleted, revealed that McGregor wanted to stay active this year and schedule at least three fights.

The 32-year-old McGregor brought up potential 2020 fights with top lightweight contender Justin Gaethje, as well as Diego Sanchez. White dismissed the notion of a Sanchez fight in one of his replies.

Having fought just once this year, a knockout victory over Donald Cerrone at UFC 246 in January, McGregor said coming into 2020 that he wanted to have a “season” with three fights. That obviously did not happen in part due to the coronavirus pandemic as well as disagreements with the UFC.

In an Instagram post Saturday, McGregor wrote that it was “borderline criminal” that he has been kept on the sidelines. McGregor did announced on Twitter in June that he was retired from the UFC. He also tweeted Friday that he plans to fight Pacquiao in boxing next. And on Monday night, he exchanged tweets with Dustin Poirier in which the two discussed a potential charity exhibition fight.

“The biggest number generator in the game asking for four fights since February this year and getting left on seen,” McGregor wrote on Instagram. “It’s pretty f–ked up when I keep thinking of it. I’ve been right here this whole time.”

White responded to the McGregor drama — and specifically the screenshots of their messages — at the UFC 253 post-fight news conference early Sunday morning in Abu Dhabi.

“This is some man-code stuff,” White told reporters at UFC 253 over the weekend. “It’s just something you don’t do. It’s one of the dirtiest things you can do.”

As far the Pacquiao fight is concerned, White said, “I have no idea.”

“You guys have been asking me about Conor McGregor forever,” White told reporters. “Did you see Conor McGregor’s tweet? The retirement tweet. ‘I’m retired.’”

McGregor, who is still under contract with the UFC, continued to blast White Sunday, tweeting that it was White who violated the code when he lied about him “turning down fights” earlier this year. McGregor also claims that White is aware of the potential Pacquiao fight and that he has the “legal letters” to prove it.

In order to go through with the boxing match against Pacquiao, McGregor would need the promotion’s approval.

"The Inner Bi**h Has Been Conquered" - Joe Rogan Keeps His Fans Updated With His Workout Regime

In our fast-paced lives, finding the time to keep yourself motivated for achieving your daily fitness goals can be a tough task. However, if you ever need motivation regarding the same, Joe Rogan is out here to help you out.

The UFC commentator loves to keep his followers updated on his workout regimes. Not only does he dive into the specifics of his drills, but also discusses the mental aspects surrounding the workout.

A while ago, Rogan discussed how he conquers his ‘inner bit*h’ every day in an Instagram post. In a sort of a continuation of the same thread, Rogan updated his fans regarding how his ‘inner bit*h’.

The inner bitch has been conquered… for today. Tomorrow that motherf****r is probably going to act up again and convince me I need a rest. Luckily my @whoop strap will keep me honest and let me know that it’s all bulls**t and that I’m good to go,” Joe Rogan wrote on Instagram.

Today I did 10 rounds of Tabata on the @roguefitness echo bike. 20-second sprints, followed by 10 seconds of rest. I do that for 8 reps, and repeat the process 10 times for 40 minutes of work…..

How did the term ‘inner bit*h’ get linked with Joe Rogan?

The Joe Rogan Experience is one of the biggest names in the podcast industry. Rogan’s willingness to hear and learn from people coming from different backgrounds has made it a massive success.

UFC bantamweight Marlon Vera credited the UFC commentator for providing him with regular doses of motivation. It was during the post-fight interview of  Vera’s massive win over Sean O’Malley that he thanked Joe Rogan for taking him to the next level.

You’re the perfect example. I learned that from you when you talk on your podcast, the things you say about ‘Push yourself’ and ‘Don’t be a bitch,’ ‘Conquer your inner bitch.’ All these f**king things, Joe, you make a big level to another step. So thank you for that,” Marlon Vera said.

Along with providing people with motivation, the podcast has also helped Joe Rogan make a fortune. Earlier this year, the podcast became a Spotify exclusive following a licensing deal worth about $100 million.
