Sports/History: Tommie Smith Raised A ‘Black Power’ Fist During The Medal Ceremony At The 1968 Olympics… With No Regrets (Video)

Talk about REPRESENTING! You know the black and white video at the Olympic games back, back in the day, with the raised fists in it? Yes, this guy, that part!

Tommie Smith sits down with Bill Rhoden to discuss the 50th anniversary of his iconic gesture at the Olympics and how it is relevant in these times.

Shout to John Carlos (the other athlete who raised his fist on the podium), too. Watch this though. Great insights on what modern day athletes can and should be doing with their platforms for humanity, applauding Colin Kaepernick for his taking a knee and taking a stand.

Comedy: Isaiah Thomas And Kevin Hart Show They Have The ‘Balls’ To Get In The Ice Tub And Talk About The Big Men’s Game (Video)

Bwaaahahaaa! Kev started off with the ’94 Pistons Captain Isaiah, friend to Magic Johnson… This is young I.T. not that ‘Bad Boy’ (plus he was only 5 years old back in 1994). Silly. And it only gets sillier from there.

Kevin Hart and Isaiah Thomas bond on being the short guys. Isaiah Thomas talks about his longest day ever- being the last pick in the NBA draft, losing his tooth and his top 5 Point Guards in the NBA.

Family Feud: Can Charles Barkley & Shaquille O’Neal Make One More ‘Fast Break’ For Some ‘Fast Money’? (Video)

I’ve often seen posts go viral with Sir Charles and Shaq Diesel taking shots at each other. They’re really on the same team. Watch how much so (above), as they have fun going for some ‘Fast Money’ for charity on the Family Feud.

(You can tell when bros get rich… listen to BOTH their “Fortune ___” answers. Ha!)

Sports: Muhammad Ali x David Frost Interview (1974) [Video]

David Frost (yep, that dude they’re talking about in that ‘Frost Nixon’ movie) interviews boxing legend, Muhammad Ali. Frost could give it to U.S. President Nixon, but Ali is the Champion Of The World… and of classic jibber-jabber! Gotta love hearing the Champ talk. You definitely will after watching this.

Lots of funny, but Ali drops some jewels in here, too.

Family Feud: Ayesha Curry Wins ‘Fast Money’ For Charity. Oh, And Steph Curry Helped (Video)

Been a minute since we had a Celebrity Family Feud clip up. Always fun to watch. After watching a second time I realized that Ayesha was actually one answer away from winning the whole thing herself! Has that ever happened??

LeBron James x Kevin Durant – “It Ain’t Easy” (Prod. Franky Wahoo x Stewbillionaire)

Michael Jordan never recorded on a single, did he? Asking. If memory serves, he was in that Michael Jackson (RIP) video… but no vocals. Maybe King James gets a leg up in the better-than-Jordan-or-not-yet debate.

Check a box for Lebron AND Kevin Durant on the ‘Jordan never did this’ list. Recorded during the 2011 NBA lockout. Previously unreleased. Here it is!

Boris Diaw Tells His Bros, “I Think It’s The Moment For Me To Retire.” (Video)

Yep. Boris tells his friends, on the water, on deck, on camera, that he is taking his talents to… well into retirement. Feels right, especially on a nice day on a nice boat. Ballinnnn!

Boris, Tony and Ronny and their 6 NBA rings are on a boat and no-one falls in the water. Big decision, big men, big moment. Too cool for school. Thank you 🙌🙌🙌

Season 3 Premiere Of Vice’s Skateboard Culture Docuseries: ‘King Of The Road’ (Full Episode) [Video]

CRAAAZY! I just stumbled across this. Watched. Can’t say I fully understood, but I was fully engaged. Folks on a skate trip of a lifetime, shredding rails, shedding blood, and other gnarly and ‘bro’ stuff… all while trying to win bragging rights (and MONEY) as ‘Kings Of The Road.’ Just winning at life, man. This crazy life.

The race starts in Reno with a relay. Evan crushes while Glick gets stage fright. The Books are handed out and Foundation ends the night with a tender moment at a wedding chapel.

See Some Hardcore Parkour On Abandoned Hotels (Video)

They are wilding out! Free running, cray or dangerous… whatever you wanna call this parkour dudes are doing on here… This is it. The moves and music will get your heart rate up (whether you are an active participant in the sport or not).

We traveled to Croatia to film parkour on the rooftops of five abandoned hotels. Using slow motion cameras, we captured three of the UK’s best free runners reclaiming the space through movement. The hotels were bombarded during the Croatian War for Independence, and you can still see the impact hits on the walls there. They have since been abandoned for twenty years. Kupari is set to be demolished and rebuilt in 2019, so the vacancy might not be for much longer.

Jalen Rose & Jadakiss Talk About Artists’ Taking A Stand And Defending Their Music (Video)

Jada spoke on it: “All money isn’t good money.” It was good that Hip-Hop let EA Sports know that we stand with Kaep. Rappers can take a knee and take a stand, esp. when it comes to ‘mistaken’ censorship of their music.

(Hard to believe they called removing Kaep’s mentions in song lyrics a mistake.)

Jadakiss joins Jalen Rose to talk about the fact that Colin Kaepernick’s name was edited out of a verse in Madden 19 from a Big Sean song, and how the former San Francisco 49ers QB’s name was added back in after Big Sean’s complaints.

Two Wrestlers Speak On ‘Life After Sumo’ (Documentary)

The glamor and prestige of being on top of the sumo game in the Land Of The Rising Sun… if you can get to the top. And even if you do, being ‘about that life’ comes at a price. Watch VICE SPORTS tally up the bill in this documentary episode.

Sumo wrestlers enter training stables, or beyas, as young teens and dedicate their lives to the sport until they retire. Training involves incredible food intake, heavy beer consumption as a means of weight gain and daily full-contact sparring. Along with the health impacts, most wrestlers leave the sport with little education and less money. In this VICE Sports exclusive, we visit with two retired rikishis to get their take on life after sumo.

For The NYC Title, Brooklyn Tech’s Team Will Step In The Arena (Documentary)

If you cannot wrap your head around ‘step team’ as a sports/athletic activity, look at this and reconsider. Just saying. They go in as hard as any team on the court (or anywhere else).

You won’t find the most successful team at Brooklyn Technical High School on the basketball court or on the football field. You’ll find them stepping in the cafeteria – sweating, laughing and striving to keep their crown as NYC’s regional champions. In this VICE Sports exclusive, we met up with the all-female Lady Dragons step team to see their pressure-packed final days of preparation for NYC regionals.
– VICE SPORTS

Great story, regardless of what you ‘decide’ about the nature of the competition.

Changing The Game: Lacrosse Comes To Harlem (Video)

Up top, it’s all about the blacktop. The lyric, “Basketball is my favorite sport,” not lacrosse… right? Well, these kids are into it AND it’s helping them level up to a better shot in life.

Basketball courts may still dominate north of 125th Street in New York City, but more kids than ever are taking up lacrosse as their sport of choice. We followed Javon to hear what his friends think about lacrosse and how he plans to make his mark on the game.
– VICE SPORTS

Watch. Might have to change that lyric.
