>>Derrick Rose Acknowledges Tension Between Him and Bulls
Chicago Bulls star Derrick Rose acknowledged tension between members of his inner circle and team management.
Rose tells the Chicago Sun-Times he knows "it's been there." He says things seemed fine when he "was around," but he would then hear they weren't.
There has been speculation in recent years of tension between the organization and Rose's camp. The newspaper cites organization sources as saying the strain was over members of his inner circle taking shots at the organization and Rose not playing a bigger role in recruiting Carmelo Anthony.
In a statement, chairman Jerry Reinsdorf denied any discord, saying he can't remember when the organization has been more "cohesive."
Rose praised the roster and said it's time to "move in a positive direction."
>>Waka Flocka, Shaq Sued For Mocking Man With Disability
(Detroit, MI) -- Waka Flocka Flame, Shaquille O'Neal and Utah Jazz player Trey Burke will have to face the music after making fun of a Michigan man with a rare disability. According to the "Detroit Free Press," the three are accused of taking to social media earlier this year to mock a selfie posted by Jahmel Binion, who suffers from a rare condition called ectodermal dysplasia. The disorder has affected his appearance, including the formation of his teeth and hair. In his lawsuit against them, Binion calls their mockery "extreme and outrageous conduct" that resulted in emotional distress and defamation. Binion is suing them for more than 25-thousand-dollars in damages.
After learning about his disorder, all three apologized to Jahmel. Nevertheless, Jahmel claims their insults reached more than eight-million people across the globe.
