DC Comic’s answer to the endless stream of Marvel movies the world has been bombarded with is finally here!…..Ok, I admit, that’s a lie. Not about the movie, just about the “finally here” part. The Justice League movie came out and hit the theater sometime in 2017. But I honestly don’t remember that, do you? I don’t remember seeing a million advertisements about the movie or any of that last year. But now, the movie is coming to HBO and I can’t wait to see it! The Marvel movies are great, but I’m honestly a DC fan at heart. I grew up watching Batman, Superman, Aquaman, Wonder Woman and the others on Saturday mornings. The only morning of the week you could see all your favorite “toons” back in the day. I saw the Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman individual movies. I’m curious to see what they look like on the screen together. The Justice League premieres on HBO tonight (July 7) at 8 pm. The movie stars: Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Ray Fisher, Jesse Eisenberg, Jeremy Irons and Amber Heard. Check out the trailer below:

For the fourth day in a row, protesters in Philly set up shop right outside of ICE’s Philadelphia headquarters at 8th & Cherry streets. And for the fourth straight day, Philadelphia police officers were called in to break up the sit-in.
Action News Philly (@6abc) reports, the protesters camped out outside the ICE office and demanded an immediate end to the separation and jailing of migrant families at the US-Mexico border. According to reports, the police repeatedly asked protesters to move from in front of the entrance to the ICE building. After three warnings police moved in. Ripping up makeshift tents and making arrest as they pushed the protesters away from the building. 29 protesters were arrested earlier this week. No official numbers yet on how many went to jail today.
“We are protecting their right to protest as well as trying to keep the streets open and trying access to this building. There are multiple businesses in this building so we have to make sure these entrances are kept open.” Deputy Commissioner Of Special Operations, Dennis Wilson said. Protesters said they are calling for the abolition and defunding of ICE, and are expected to keep up the protest until they get just that

Just three days after Lebron James announced that he would be opting out of the final year of his contract with the Lakers and hitting the free agency market, the King has reportedly signed on to join the LA Lakers. News of the signing broke by multiple sports outlets this evening. The sports agency that represents James reportedly put out a press release and the news took off like a wildfire. James’ team reportedly met with the 76ers just this afternoon. The meeting was likely just a formality as James had likely made up his mind to play in LA next season awhile ago. With James going to LA and Paul George resigning with the Thunder, the only big news left in NBA free agency is where will Kawhi Leonard land? I expect we will find out shortly. I expect the Lakers to be making a move to grab another big free agent signing. I’m pretty sure Lebron didn’t go to LA just to have to carry another team full of misfits and undesirables. He could’ve stayed in Cleveland if he wanted to do that again.
Multiple sports news outlets have reported that Lebron James will not pick up the player option on the final year of his contract, and will become an unrestricted free agent. Leaving one big question left to be answered. Where will Lebron James take his talents next season?
NBA free agency doesn’t officially begin until, 12:01 am est on Sunday. I believe Lebron James won’t need to wait until Sunday to decide what team he wants to sign with. I believe Lebron made that decision as he was leaving the court after the final game of the NBA finals earlier this month. He just hasn’t informed us of his decision yet.
According to NBA analyst and “experts”, the three hot spots for a King’s landing are Philly, LA, and Houston. I’ve heard places like San Antonio mentioned vaguely. It’s been reported that James has multiple houses in LA and has already enrolled his kids in schools in the Los Angeles area. To me, that doesn’t necessarily mean he’s going to play for the Lakers, it might just mean he’s eyeing a team on the West Coast. I do believe James relocating his fam to LA does take the 76ers completely out of the equation. BUT, I do believe Bron’s interest in LA opens a lane for the 2nd biggest free agent on the market to want to take a long look at Philly before he decides where he wants to play next season. No, I’m not talking about Kawhi. I’m talking about Paul George. And if he does decide to go to Philly, the rest of the Eastern Conference better beware. Philly will become a serious force in the East. But, however this all plays out, one thing is certain, this is going to be a very interesting off-season!
