With Kyrie Traded LeBron Can't Be Far Behind

With the #Nets pick #Cavaliers essentially traded #Kyrie...& #LeBron in one fell swoop! Between this & #USOpen my heart's gonna give out! πŸ˜₯

Possible Kyrie - Isaiah Thomas Trade! πŸ™€


Dear #LeBron, I admire the h*ll out of #IsaiahThomas...but please don't trade #Kyrie for him, it'll only make #DannyAinge more insufferable😳

Ingrid Goes West

#IngridGoesWest: So, the fact that this is on Twitter is very meta, no? Game changer for Plaza. #IceCube's kid great! Kurt's kid's good too

Good Time

#GoodTime: Good harmless Apatow-Meets-Mann fun. Safdie Boys know how to pay homage to their cinematic elders. DP & composer - bloody h*ll πŸ‘!

RIP Jeanne Moreau

RIP #JeanneMoreau. Even as a little kid I was taught by my parents to say her name properly. What an impossibly cool cinematic goddess.
