Apple is developing a scripted basketball show inspired by Kevin Durant’s life

 The Warriors are currently atop the Western Conference standings, but from the looks of it, Kevin Durant is shaping up to be every bit as  in demand off the court. Roughly a month ago, YouTube announced that it was partnering with the star small forward’s video business to offer up original sports programming. Now Apple’s getting in on the action. The company announced today… Read More

Kevin De Bruyne asked Leicester’s Harry Maguire for favour

Man City 5 – Leicester 1

A clip is doing the rounds from Man City’s tunnel cam following last weekend’s 5-1 win over Leicester City.

The writing was on the wall for Leicester when Raheem Sterling opened after three minutes.

Yet, the Foxes when into the break level after Jamie Vardy scored against the Sky Blues.

In the second half Sergio Aguero took over. The Argentine scored four goals to move onto 21 goals for the season.

Kevin De Bruyne also lit up the match with a hat-trick of assists.

Kevin De Bruyne & Harry Maguire

After the game, Kevin De Bruyne was caught having a quiet word with Harry Maguire in the tunnel.

The England and Belgian internationals swapped jerseys, before KDB said “take some points off the big boys for us.”

Maguire was heard replying that out that Man City are “16 points” clear of Man United at the top of the table and they don’t need much help.

For the record, De Bruyne’s request was a little futile.

Leicester have now played City’s rivals Man United, Chelsea and Liverpool twice, while they still need to take on Tottenham for a second time this season.

The Foxes couldn’t help City even if they wanted to!

Basel vs Manchester City

While the lion’s share of the attention in the Champions League tonight will be on the Juventus vs Tottenham game, Pep Guardiola will be hoping to avoid any slip up in Switzerland.

Basel are arguably the weakest team left in the UCL, and Man City should have no problems reaching the quarterfinals.

The Times on Tuesday suggest that Leroy Sane could start against Basel.

Sane was injured in the last round of the FA Cup. Indeed, such was the fear about how bad Sane’s injury was, many believed that was the reason Man City tried to sign Ryad Mahrez from Leicester on January 31.

Why Gay Icon Ian McKellen Thinks It Was 'Distasteful' of Kevin Spacey to Live in the Closet

Sir Ian McKellen has weighed in on the allegations against Kevin Spacey.

The actor, who previously worked with the former House of Cards star during Spacey’s tenure as artistic director of the Old Vic theater in London, addressed the news during an interview Thursday on the BBC’s Today.

Asked if he thinks Spacey, 58, should act again, McKellen, 78, avoided answering the question directly.

“You’re asking me if I believe in redemption?” he said. “Yes, I believe in redemption, of course.”

Pressed to comment on Spacey directly, McKellen, who came out as gay in 1988 to lobby for gay rights in the U.K., said he couldn’t because “there have been many accusations that have not really been gone into” or been “understood.”

“The only thing I would say about Mr. Spacey was that he was a gay man, and he was pretending not to be,” said McKellen. “And I always thought it a bit distasteful that such a person would come to our country — where the National Theatre at the time was being run by a gay man, and the Royal Shakespeare by another — that we should have a closeted gay man at the center of British theater.”

“You get into problems, don’t you, if you lie, if you pretend,” he added.

The first allegation against Spacey was brought forward in October by actor Anthony Rapp, who alleged Spacey had previously made inappropriate sexual advances towards him when he was a teen.

In response, Spacey issued a statement on Twitter addressing the allegations — and came out as gay.

“I have a lot of respect and admiration for Anthony Rapp as an actor. I’m beyond horrified to hear his story,” he said. “I honestly do not remember the encounter, it would have been over 30 years ago. But if I did behave as he describes, I owe him the sincerest apology for what would have been deeply inappropriate drunken behavior, and I am sorry for the feelings he describes having carried with him all these years.”

“This story has encouraged me to address other things about my life,” Spacey continued. “I know that there are stories out there about me and that some have been fueled by the fact that I have been so protective of my privacy. As those closes to me know, in my life, I have had relationships with both men and women. I have loved and had romantic relationships with men throughout my life, and I choose now to live as a gay man. I want to deal with this honestly and openly and that starts with examining my own behavior.”

The backlash was swift: Several more people accused Spacey of sexual harassment or assault, and in November, he entered a treatment facility.

He was also fired from the final season of his Emmy-winning Netflix drama, House of Cards.
