The Akron-bred athlete hit his 30,000 point against the San Antonio Spurs, joining an elite club of NBA greats, including Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Kobe Bryant, Karl Malone, Michael Jordan, Wilt Chamberlain and Dirk Nowitzki. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Just ahead of the game, only 7 points from the major feat, James took to Instagram to congratulate himself on the “accomplishment-achievement tonight that you’ll reach!” Hours later, just before the end of the first quarter, James hit a jump shot to become the youngest player to reach 30,000 career points. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But, in true Bron fashion, he one-upped himself by setting two historical records with the same shot. According to the NBA, James also became the first player in NBA history to reach 30,000 points, 7,000 assists, and 7,000 rebounds. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ James’ accomplishment was acknowledged by the Spurs’ home crowd, who congratulated the King with a standing ovation. The superstar’s family and friends shared their thoughts on social media, while several celebrities gave their remarks via a video message. Fellow superstars from the likes of Jay-Z, Drake and Kevin Hart congratulated the greatest player in the world on the milestone, while the NBA Commissioner congratulated Bron in a separate statement. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “Congratulations to LeBron on reaching 30,000 points - yet another milestone in an extraordinary career that continues to inspire,” Adam Silver said.

Bad, Children, and Fabolous: Ballerific Woman: Karleen Roy, From Diddy's Assistant to Being Her Own Boss @balleralert Ballerific Woman: Karleen Roy, From Diddy’s Assistant to Being Her Own Boss- blogged by @peachkyss ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In a perfect world, men and women would receive equal pay. African American women would be presented the same opportunities as their white counterparts. Rejection would be based on qualifications rather than race. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Unfortunately, this world is far from perfect, however, there are people, more specifically women, who have dedicated their time, money and education to make a positive change. They’ve used their experiences and their encounters with injustices to fight and-or create more opportunities for their children and their children’s children, in an effort to make the world a better place. They've put our pain and problems on their backs and created space for change, new opportunities for our brothers and sisters to excel and succeed in a world that is designed against us. This is BlackExcellence. These are BallerificWomen. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ One of those special individuals is KarleenRoy, who went from being Diddy’s assistant to being her own boss. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Karleen Roy is the founder of The Vanity Group, which is a luxury life’s management company that specializes in event planning, luxury concierge services and talent relations. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Roy was Diddy’s Assistant for six years before realizing she was ready for the next chapter in her life. After leaving Bad Boy, former colleagues began reaching out to Roy to secure talent for red carpet events and planning events. That’s when Karleen realized that everything she was doing was a business venture. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Karleen Roy has worked with many clients from Diddy, Kobe Bryant, Fabolous, and many more. Roy was able to turn something she loves into her very own business. Now that’s a Ballerific Woman!

Kobe Bryant, LeBron James, and Love: Kobe Bryant Talks LeBron James: "l Think The Player That Would Fit With Me The Most, I Actually Think Would Be LeBron" @balleralert Kobe Bryant Talks LeBron James: “I Think The Player That Would Fit With Me The Most, I Actually Think Would Be LeBron” - Blogged by @tktrinidad ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Kobe Bryant, in a recent episode of “Holding Court with Geno Auriemma” podcast, said in his prime he would love to share the court with LeBron James, as a teammate. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "I think the player that would fit with me the most, I actually think would be LeBron. He's a passer first, I'm a scorer, I'm a finisher. 'Bron is a facilitator by nature and I'm a finisher by nature. Those two styles, I think complement each other extremely well,” Bryant said. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ You would think that Bryant would choose the GOAT, Michael Jordan but maybe the numbers say it all. In both their 15th year in the NBA, Jordan averaged 5.3 assists per game and James averaged 7.1 assists per game. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ A Bryant and James combo on the court would have been a great thing to watch. But maybe with the introduction of Big 3 League, they can eventually play together. You never know, stranger things have happened.

Donald Trump, Kobe Bryant, and Luke Walton: Kobe Bryant Says He Would Kneel During The Anthem If He Was Still Playing @balleralert Kobe Bryant Says He Would Kneel During The Anthem If He Was Still Playing – blogged by @MsJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Prior to the start of NBA preseason, the league released a memo to remind teams of the rule that requires players and coaches to stand during the national anthem. Since then, a few teams have announced that they would be protesting the national anthem by locking arms, while others revealed that they will not be participating in the protest at all. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ However, amid the ongoing controversy, Kobe Bryant says if he were still playing today, he would be kneeling during the national anthem, despite the league rule. The retired Los Angeles Laker player revealed his decision on Wednesday, on The Hollywood Reporter’s Awards Chatter podcast. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “Kneel,” Bryant said, when asked what he would do if faced with the decision. When asked what he would say if he could speak to Donald Trump, he said he’s advise the celebrity-in-chief to “focus on serving, not leading.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Bryant’s former team is one of many that have decided to lock arms during the anthem prior to the start of preseason games. The team’s coach discussed the decision last week saying, “We are in this together.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “I think they chose to show that we are united in this and that obviously they have a ton of respect… well, I will let them speak for themselves, but I have a ton of respect for the country, the flag, the military,” Luke Walton said. “But by locking arms, I feel like we are showing that there are issues in this country, and it is a chance for us to raise awareness and still make it a talking point. If you do nothing, then it kind of goes away, and if it goes away, then nothing changes.”

Kobe Bryant, Los Angeles Lakers, and Los-Angeles-Lakers: Lakers to Retire Both of Kobe Bryant's Jerseys Before Warriors Game in December @balleralert 0 SERS 24 Lakers to Retire Both of Kobe Bryant’s Jerseys Before Warriors Game in December – blogged by @MsJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ KobeBryant’s career and legacy with the Los Angeles Lakers will be remembered for years to come, as his jersey will join the greats in the rafters. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to TMZ, the Lakers are planning to retire Bryant’s jersey before the Warriors game on December 18. Although the ceremony has yet to be announced, the team sent a letter to Lakers season ticket holders, suggesting them to “hold on to their tickets for the game on Dec. 18” for a “special event.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But, with the retirement of Bryant’s jersey, the organization had to decide which number would be hung, as the superstar wore 8 and 24 throughout his career with the L.A. team. Back in 2016, Bryant provided the perfect response to the question, saying “[Whichever number they choose] it’s going to be pretty hard for someone else to wear the other one.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ With that being said, the baller will officially become the first player to have two jerseys hanging in the rafters for the same team, highlighting Bryant’s decorated, 20-year tenure with the team.
