VIDEO: Amy Schumer in few film with Lebron James

If I was picking the next host of The Daily Show, the individual who will have the insanely tough job of trying to replace Jon Stewart, I would go with Amy Schumer. Her series, Inside Amy Schumer, brilliantly and hysterically slaughters every sacred cow imaginable.

Michigan St’s Lourawls Tum Tum Nairn: the next Magic or Mateen?

You’ll never find, as long as you search, a name in sports as unique as Lourawls Tum Tum Nairn Jr. The freshman point guard is indeed a natural man.

That’s good because...
