Lebron James Is Annoyed His 10-Year-Old Son Is Already Getting Recruited

Shortly after a video of Lebron James Jr.’s skills went viral, his dad revealed that colleges have already reached out to his son with offers.

At 10 years old, Lebron James Jr. has already shown promise as a successful athlete, and scouts have already jumped to express interest in recruiting him for college ball.

In an interview with a local radio station in Detroit on Tuesday, Lebron James admitted that his son has recently garnered the attention of some university athletic departments. And he’s not too happy about it.

“Yeah, he’s already got some offers from colleges,” he told the radio station. “It’s pretty crazy. It should be a violation. You shouldn’t be recruiting 10-year-old kids.”

But seriously, the kid is GOOD. Here he is dominating at John Lucas All-Star Weekend, one of the most competitive youth basketball tournaments in the country.

The video was posted on Feb. 23 and has more than 4.7 million views on YouTube. youtube.com

Guess we’ll have to wait another eight years before finding out where Lebron James Jr. decides to take his talents.

In the meantime, he and his younger brother, Bryce, will continue to rock the coolest kicks and backpacks at school.

Who should replace Ann Curry on the ‘Today’ show?

After just one year, NBC is reportedly looking to replace ‘Today’ co-host Ann Curry. Twitter users suggested replacements who might have better chemistry with Matt Lauer.

Yes! Let's make this happen! #hotmess #trainwreck RT @OhLizOh: I think Lindsay Lohan should replace Ann Curry. @MChaseRadio @jackgoesforth

I'd joke NBC is going to replace Ann Curry with Sarah Palin, but then remembered Palin already guest hosted. Might happen!

Really hopes the Today show doesn't replace Ann Curry with Savannah Guthrie. I vote for Natalie or someone completely new. #Today

I hope they replace Ann Curry with Savannah Guthrie. That is all.

Dale From Top Chef Will Make Dumplings At Newark Airport

It’s all part of the $120 million facelift United Airlines is giving its terminal at Newark, which Bloomberg has proclaimed will be a “foodie theme park.” Showing up two hours early never sounded so good.

The year is 2016. Worn down by the soul-draining experience that is modern air travel, you begin hallucinating, imagining a Top Chef alumni slinging pork and chive dumplings in Newark Airport as you wait to board your flight to Portland.

But this is no fever dream. United Airlines’ $120 million redesign of its terminal at Newark International Airport is, in fact, very real, and will include more than just Dale Talde’s world famous dumplings, sold from his new Little Purse restaurant in the terminal.

Set to open next year, some 55 new dining establishments will grace the remodeled Terminal C at Newark, and will include everything from Dale’s dumplings, to gourmet pizza and Swedish meatballs. Designed by the Rockwell Group, Parts and Labor Design, David Mexico Group, and Crème, the new United terminal will also feature thousands of iPads for weary travelers who just don’t want to deal with people when they sidle up to the planned ramen bar.

Here’s a look at how the new terminal’s designers say it will shape up.

The chef made his name on the TV show, and gathers big crowds at his Brooklyn restaurant, which earned praise for its signature pretzel pork and chive dumplings.

And there’s eco-friendly mood lighting at the ramen bar.

The LED-lit Kaedama ramen bar will glow in the evenings, creating a great pre-flight date spot.

And iPads everywhere!

So many iPads. Throughout the 100,000 square-foot terminal, you’ll find iPads at nearly every turn–6,000 of them to be exact. The model is reminiscent to Delta’s terminals at LaGuardia and JFK, and eliminates the need for human contact if a diner so desires.

There are sea-themed restaurants.

And many others featuring “bespoke” wood and designs intended to conjure a European town square. You might not even want to board your flight to Copenhagen because who can actually get a table at Noma anyway?

And even a few convertible cafés

Some of the restaurants will be able to change from a morning bakery to an evening Italian deli with the turn of a wall, allowing vendors to make the most of the glitzy new space.

This German Shepherd’s Favorite Thing to Do at the Park is Also the Cutest. Aww.

Dogs are the best kinds of companions. Even if they don’t know any tricks, they want to make sure you’re having fun at every single moment. Take this dog, for example. Instead of just playing fetch at the park, he’s doing something way more fun.

What a trick! No matter if you’re human or canine, you’re never to old to play at a park.

Left uses Tory MP’s ‘multi-cultural crap’ Olympics tweet to bash Romney

http://twitter.com/#!/10SFreakoid/status/228971828054482944

Conservative MP Aidan Burley didn’t care for the Olympics opening ceremony.

The most leftie opening ceremony I have ever seen – more than Beijing, the capital of a communist state! Welfare tribute next?

— Aidan Burley MP (@AidanBurleyMP) July 27, 2012

Thank God the athletes have arrived! Now we can move on from leftie multi-cultural crap. Bring back red arrows, Shakespeare and the Stones!

— Aidan Burley MP (@AidanBurleyMP) July 27, 2012

The Twitter backlash was swift and severe.

I predict racist @AidanBurleyMP will resign by Wednesday – please see his tweets and help me make it happen. #noroomforracistsinUK

— shaawasmund (@shaawasmund) July 27, 2012

Remember folks, the next time @aidanburleymp slags off unions. He's just a massive racist. That's all.

— Richard Simcox (@richsimcox) July 27, 2012

But for many, slamming Burley wasn’t enough. It was also a great excuse to continue bashing GOP candidate Mitt Romney.

Hearing that @AidanBurleyMP account WAS hacked. By Mit Romney.

— Flintworks (@flintworks) July 28, 2012

Mitt Romney needs a running mate. Pity @AidanBurleyMP born in New Zealand not US. They'd make a great pair

— Kevin Maguire (@Kevin_Maguire) July 27, 2012

Dear Mr Romney, Do you have a vacancy in your campaign team; @aidanburleymp will soon be available and has your eclectic outlook?

— Brian Moore (@brianmoore666) July 27, 2012

What, no tweets using Burley’s remarks to screech about Sarah Palin and George W. Bush? You guys are slacking!

Bam! Why are Obama’s poll numbers plummeting? Monica Crowley sums it up

Gee, how on earth did that happen?

Monica Crowley sums it up with a simple truth:

Other Twitter users pointed out that basic fact of life to Chuck Todd as well.

Funny, that.

Snicker.

19 Times Jennifer Lopez Proved She Was The Celeb Having The Most Fun On Instagram

Or 19 times we’re reminded just how incredible it would be to live like J.Lo.

1. The time she took a break from posing on the red carpet at the Golden Globes to take a selfie with Ryan Guzman.

2. The time she wasn’t afraid to go head-to-head with Grumpy Cat on who could take a grumpier selfie.

Obviously Grumpy won. Also, is Ryan Seacrest just drunk in this photo?

3. The time she got a fabulous photobomb from Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux.

4. The time she showed everyone how to take a flawless car selfie.

FTR, she is not driving.

5. The time she put on red lipstick and made her hair crunchy with mousse to pay homage to the ’90s.

6. The time she posted this adorable selfie of herself and her BFF Leah Remini cuddling.

7. The time she had a totally sweet backstage reunion with her Maid in Manhattan co-star, Tyler Posey.

8. The time she literally did a selfie Inception on the set of American Idol.

9. The time she and Beyoncé just looked like the definition of cool partying together.

10. The time she showed us that, yes, being a diva and international celebrity is a dangerous job.

11. The time she let us know that even an international star needs to spend some quality time with her mom.

12. The time she gave us this perfect #TBT of her days as a Fly Girl on In Living Color.

13. The time she reminded us not to be fooled by all the rocks that she’s got…

14. …’cause she’s still “Jenny from the block.”

15. The time she wasn’t too above fangirling when trying to get a photo with Pitbull.

16. The time she gave us a behind-the-scenes look at what it takes to look red carpet ready.

17. The time she did what any of us would do if were sitting next to Meryl Streep…

18. …or hanging with First Lady Michelle Obama: TAKE A SELFIE!

19. And finally, the time when she posted this awesome video she made with a Barbie that was made in her likeness.

‘Cause when you’re a fabulous as J.Lo., even Barbie wants to have you as a friend.
