Michael Jordan’s ‘Tune Squad’ uniform from ‘Space Jam’ is up for auction.
The uniform Michael Jordan wore in Space Jam is being auctioned off and it’s certainly not going cheap. The ‘Tune Squad’ shirt and shorts basketball superstar Jordan wore during the scenes he shot for the animated game between the Looney Tunes and the Monstars in the film is being auctioned online in October.

Amy Schumer makes her big screen debut with a script that feels like a much-extended sketch from her TV series. It's hilariously observant and refreshingly grown-up about sex, but the plot falls back on the usual cliches. Even with some clever twists and turns, the structure is oddly predictable. But the biggest surprise is that Schumer and director Judd Apatow ultimately cave in and take a traditional approach to romance.
As she does on her show, Schumer plays a sexually frank woman called Amy. Taught by her father (Colin Quinn) to distrust monogamy, she has indulged in a commitment-free life, rarely seeing a man more than once. And her one repeat male partner (John Cena) is a rather too self-obsessed bodybuilder. Then her boss, blithely demanding magazine editor Diana (Tilda Swinton), assigns her to interview Aaron (Bill Hader), a doctor who specialises in sports injuries. Amy can't help but seduce him; it's what she does! But in the process she realises that she actually quite likes him. This idea so rattles her that she sabotages her close relationship with her sister Kim (Brie Larson), who is expecting a child with husband Tom (Mike Birbiglia).
Schumer has impeccable comic timing, and she's hilarious all the way through this film, playing on her character's riotous way of being shockingly honest at all the wrong times. In other words, the character is entertaining but never very likeable because of the thoughtless things she does and says. So our sympathies lie with Hader, who gives an unusually layered turn as a smart, sensitive and very funny guy who just might be too good for Amy. Other characters are either here to provide emotion (Larson and Quinn) or to shamelessly steal scenes (Swinton). And Apatow brings in a usual stream of big-name cameos, including Daniel Radcliffe and Marisa Tomei in a clever pastiche of a New York indie movie.

Amy enjoys her life in the big city with her comfortable apartment, wacky friends and driven job as a reporter for a men's magazine. As a young girl, her parents sadly divorced, and her father wasted no time in drumming into her that a lifelong partnership with just one person left much to be desired. So she's certainly taking her father's words literally and seems to enjoy the company of a different man every night (though never the full night); it's a life that she has no plans to change any time soon. However, something shifts in her consciousness when she meets sports doctor Aaron Connors on whom she's been commissioned to write an article. The pair hit it off right away, but after their first night together, Amy's left wondering if ending it there is really the best thing to do. It feels weird to carry on seeing someone after she's slept with them, but at the same time, she can't remember the last time she had so much fun.

Why do celebrities seem to be now all using Samsungs?
Oh dear Lebron James probably didn't make Samsung execs too happy on Wednesday when he took to Twitter to complain about his phone erasing itself. You see, James is being paid big money by Samsung to promote their products so his angry tweet wasn't very good publicity. Of course the tweet was then soon deleted. But James isn't the only celebrity Samsung has on speed dial, lately it seems many celebs have been all to keen to show off their Samsung products.
LeBron James was left unhappy when his phone got erased
Remember when Ellen DeGeneres took that famous selfie at this year’s Oscars? Well, whilst we were all looking to see just how many famous faces we could spot what we were really meant to be looking at was the phone Ellen used, it was a Samsung Galaxy 3 Note. Samsung were big sponsors at the Oscars and their cheeky bit of product placement with Ellen served them very well, the picture she tweeted was then retweeted 3 million times within 24 hours. With those retweets Samsung got an estimated 900 Samsung mentions a minute on social media. Not bad at all, until Ellen sent out her next tweet which happened to come from an iPhone, oops.

Basketball star Lebron James rolled out a party to remember after he wedded his high-school sweetheart Savannah Brinson in a decadent three-day celebration.

Lebron James is to join forces with Red Sox chairman Tom Werner to develop cable TV sitcom for Starz
After the success of winning his second NBA championship, Lebron James has decided to begin a new venture and team up with cable network channel Starz to become executive producer of a new sitcom called Survivors Remorse.
The 30 minute show will follow two cousins who escape a life of poverty in the tough streets of Philadelphia for a chance of fame and fortune. The sitcom will follow the two cousins as they, according to the New York Daily News "become successful and occasionally find themselves looking back with pangs of guilt".
Lebron James's personal journey is well documented as he grew up in an impoverished home, being raised by his 16 year old mom in several neighbourhoods of Akron, Ohio. James understands more than most the challenges that are faced accending to great heights of fame, as he has felt the strain of fame and the backlash of the public, most notably the criticism he received for conducting the TV special, 'The Decision'.

The 21st ESPY Awards were held last night. Winners included LeBron James, Serena Williams, Michael Phelps and The Miami Heat. A number of celebrities from outside the sporting world made an appearance, such as Selena Gomez and Paula Patton.
The 2013 ESPY Awards (short for Excellence in Sports Performance Yearly Award) were held last night. They were held on Wednesday 17th July at the Nokia Theater in L.A. The ESPYs is an ESPN network award ceremony, intended to recognise the achievements of an individual athletic or team from the world of sport. The guest list was not limited to celebrities from the world of sport as many actors and musicians attended.

Basketball star LeBron has finally asked friends and family to save the date for their wedding
Lebron James and his sweetheart Savannah Brinson have finally set a date for their wedding. Savannah and LeBron, who have two children together, have sent friends a ‘save the date card, asking pals to make sure they keep their diaries clear for their wedding, on the weekend of September 13 – 15. They plan to wed in San Diego, according to People magazine and the cards they sent out feature a caricature of the family, “all dressed up, grinning and piloting a plane into San Diego.”
TMZ have pointed out that there could be a problem with James and Brinson’s Jewish buddies attending their nuptials, as the date they’ve asked them to save is actually the start of the Yom Kippur Jewish festival. On Sept 13, Jews are supposed to fast for 24 hours and pray. Not exactly compatible with your average wedding, sadly. We’ll save the rest of TMZ’s comments on the Jewish faith to its own readership; we just hope for LeBron and Savannahs sake that they manage to find a compromise for their Jewish pals.

Or rather, they’re not the stars. Or they are the stars, who are acting as not the stars… it’s all a bit meta. It’s also pretty funny, but then again, you can’t expect anything less of such a huge production can you? Yes, we imagine Samsung paid quite the tab for this star-studded affair, but ‘tis the season after all. Did we mention that Lebron James is also it it?
The ad is such a big deal apparently that not only did Samsung tease it beforehand, but they also released the full, two-minute version of the thing. Oh, and it also promotes some of Samsung's products too, such as the Galaxy Note. Did we mention that LeBron James is in it? The entire clip feels more like an Saturday Night Live skit rather than an ad to be honest, but then again, that was probably part if the clever marketing team’s idea. Those guys like getting into your head and making you subconsciously want things, we’ve heard. Come to think of it, those Galaxy Note things are looking pretty sweet.
