Title: The Crisis of the NBAPA; Is Adam Silver Poised to Take The NBAPA’s Lunch?   By Brian Crowell; Member NEA and AFT Teachers Union   Much praise was given to NBA Commissioner Adam Silver in wake of the Donald Sterling Controversy. Silver gave an almost “Baptist church” like speech shouting out NBA names such as “Sweet Water Clifton” and “Magic Johnson” to try to win over consent of a mostly black NBA League. Sure Adam, I heard the salient points but “Sweet Water Clifton” is a bit much. I think you were more concerned that players would boycott the playoff game and still be allowed their full paychecks under Title 7 Protection.   After all Donald Sterling essentially said he didn’t want certain African Americans at his games, which to me a historian sounds like blacks not allowed to sit in lunch counters, or ride in the front of the bus. 50 years after the Civil Rights Act of 1964, nothing has changed for rank and file African Americans if anything, things have become worse. Just look at the Unemployment and Incarceration numbers for blacks and the concept paints a bleak picture. No, the Crisis is in the NBAPA goes much deeper into what Silver didn’t say, and what he wants in the upcoming CBA if either side opts out of the deal.   Lets begin with issue number 1. Salary Cap. Yes Adam Silver wants a “hard cap” on player salaries limiting the amount players can earn for their labor in the NBA. In a capitalist system it sounds like … [Read more...]

Last Comic Standing

LAST COMIC LOGO

America's most compelling comedy competition is back May 22 when NBC's Emmy Award-nominated series "Last Comic Standing" returns starring three new celebrity judges - comedy icons Roseanne Barr ("Roseanne," "The Office") and Keenen Ivory Wayans ("Scary Movie," "In Living Color"), as well as international comic sensation Russell Peters ("Comics Without Borders," "Russell Peters Presents"). JB Smoove ("Curb Your Enthusiasm," "The Millers") is on board as the new host. The lively laugh fest resumes its search for the funniest comic in the country with innovative format changes, surprise celebrity guests and unexpected twists guaranteed to deliver the funniest season yet. Season 8 will open up with auditions, this time by invitation only. The top 100 comics in America will compete for the top 20 spots.

In this phase, they will compete in different comedy disciplines - sketch, improv and stand-up - to prove themselves individually and in teams. Then the funniest of all will take the coveted title of "Last Comic Standing," winning a prize package that includes an NBC talent deal and a half-hour scripted project to be developed by Universal Television.

Roseanne Barr to Host New Series on Extreme Helicopter Moms

Roseanne Talent Header

From New York Post Roseanne Barr wants everyone to listen up. The outspoken comedian — known for voicing her opinion on topics from George Zimmerman to Kim Kardashian’s latest selfie — will now take on motherhood as host of a new Investigation Discovery series “Momsters: When Moms Go Bad.” The show spotlights stories of mothers who will do anything in order for their children to succeed — from the soccer mom who stalks, threatens and attacks her son’s coach to the theater mom who takes auditions into her own hands. Tabloid news stories like the “Texas Cheerleader Mom” Wanda Holloway — who attempted to hire a hitman to kill the mother of her daughter’s junior high school cheerleading rival — will be recounted in the typical ID style through re-enactments, with Barr offering her commentary. Though still in pre-production, the plan is to premiere the half-hour “Momsters” episodes later this year. Barr was already a huge fan of the network (favorites shows include the Jerry Springer-hosted “Tabloid,” “Wives With Knives” and “Who the Bleep Did I Marry”) and says the “Momsters” topic is right up her alley because it allows her to take bad moms to task — which she already does without the forum of a TV show. “I like to correct people when I don’t think they’re doing good mother things in public,” Barr tells The Post, recounting how she chastised a woman in the park on Tuesday who was pushing a kid in a stroller who had bare feet in 40-degree weather. “It’s … [Read more...]

Roseanne’s Lookin Good

Roseanne Header

From The National Enquirer April 28, 2014 by Alan Smith Roseanne’s dramatic weight loss was the talk of an April 8 press event in Pasadena, Calif. She helped promote NBC’s new version of “Last Comic Standing,” which returns May 22 and features her as a judge. Roseanne’s face was chiseled “and even her collarbone was visible beneath the layers of long necklaces as she posed for pictures,” said the source. Jaws dropped as she proudly paraded her trim figure in a flat­tering outfit. “Her heavy days are behind her,” said the source. “And she wants to come down even more.” … [Read more...]
