Costa Rica Soccer Team Survives Penalties, First CONCACAF Team To Qualify For World Cup Quarterfinals

The Costa Rica soccer team showed that they have an undying spirit, when they won on penalties against Greece. The Central American team becomes the first CONCACAF representatives to advance to the World Cup quarterfinals.

In one of the most exciting matches so far, the Costa Rica soccer team came out on top, even though they were down a man after the ref showed a red card to Oscar Duarte in the 66th minute. Los Ticos had to fend off with 10-men for the duration of regulation and extra time.

Costa Rica soccer star Bryan Ruiz put his team up on the board first when he sent the ball into Greece's net in the 52nd minute. Greece's Sokratis Papastathopoulos scored the equalizer after regulation time was over, in the 91st minute.

With both teams on the verge of collapse due to the extreme humid and hot conditions in Recife, the match moved into extra time, but neither the Costa Rica soccer team nor Greece could break the tie after 30 minutes. With players on both sides looking clearly exhausted and out of replacements, it was time for the heartbreak of penalties.

This is how it went down on the shootout:

  • Celso Borges scored for Costa Rica (1-0)
  • Konstantinos Mitroglou scored for Greece (1-1)
  • Bryan Ruiz scored for Costa Rica (2-1)
  • Lazaros Christodoulopoulos scored for Greece (2-2)
  • Giancarlo Gonzalez scored for Costa Rica (3-2)
  • José Holebas scored for Greece (3-3)
  • Joel Campbell scored for Costa Rica (4-3)
  • Theofanis Gekas missed for Greece. Goalie Keylor Navas stopped the kick (4-3)
  • Michael Umaña scored for Costa Rica (5-3)

The Costa Rica soccer team exploded in jubilant celebration after Umaña's historic penalty conversion and all emotions were released on both sides. Players in the Central American team buckled on the field completely exhausted, drenched in sweat, but relieved beyond words. Greece was left devastated after the valiant effort.

Not only did the Costa Rica men's soccer team defeat the tough squad from Greece and moved on to the next round for the first time in their history, they also became the first representative of the CONCACAF to advance to the quarterfinals of a World Cup. This is no small feat for the small FIFA confederation, and it is a reflection of how much it has improved in recent years.

The CONCACAF includes North and Central America, and the Caribbean. The teams belonging to this confederation are usually a non-factor in a World Cup, however, the Costa Rica soccer team has changed all that and was joined by Mexico and Team USA advancing to the round of 16.

Goalkeeper Keylor Navas was one of the biggest stars of the Costa Rica soccer team with his multiple saves during regulation and extra time. But none was more important than stopping that last penalty kick. Millions are celebrating the historic feat well into the night.

Emily Ratajkowski Mind-Blowing With Stringy Bikini 360 After Baby

Emily Ratajkowski just snagged a quarter of a million views in 15 minutes for a full 360 in a minuscule stringy bikini, this just over a month after she welcomed son Sylvester. The 29-year-old supermodel, now getting told she \"SNAPPED\" by fans, updated her Instagram with a jaw-dropping bikini selfie from her bedroom, one promoting her Inamorata swim line and very much proving she's blessed from above. Sending out zero sign that she ever gave birth, EmRata showed off rock-hard abs, her insane cleavage, and the celeb likes are coming in fast. 

Snapped Right Back

Scroll for the video. Emily made headlines on March 11, 2021 for confirming she'd safely welcomed her first son, shared with 2018-married husband Sebastian Bear Mc-Clard. Sylvester had arrived on March 8, with Ratajowski calling it \"the most surreal, beautiful, and love-filled morning of my life.\"

The video came with a swipe-right after Emily had snapped herself in a skin-tight, giraffe-print swimsuit, one that was already highlighting a very slim waistline. Next came one heck of a bikini show-off. See it below.

Scroll For The Video!

Parading her famous apple bottom and teeny-tiny waist, Emily then re-appeared, still in selfie mode, flaunting rock-hard abs and little in the way of baby weight as she wore the same fabrics, but in a far tinier bikini. The stringy two-piece came with the London-born star turning around, examining her swimwear, and opting out of a caption, bar three giraffe emoji and a shout-out to her 2017-founded brand.

Jaws are on the floor in the comments section. \"Girl, how can you have that body after a baby?\" currently tops comments.

Celeb Likes Pouring In

The comment had come from social media sensation and fashion queen Chiara Ferragni, who also returned to leave Emily a fire emoji. Also leaving likes were 41-year-old reality star Kourtney Kardashian, plus her 25-year-old sister Kendall Jenner - EmRata regularly appears in promos for Kourtney's 2019-founded Poosh brand.

Emily had made major headlines for announcing her pregnancy via Vogue, but it was the star revealing she'd be letting her baby pick its own gender that proved the real talking point. See it after the breast-feeding shot.

Letting Baby Pick Own Gender

Speaking about her future baby, Emily stated: “When my husband and I tell friends that I’m pregnant, their first question after ‘Congratulations’ is almost always ‘Do you know what you want?’

 “We like to respond that we won’t know the gender until our child is 18 and that they’ll let us know then.\"

“Everyone laughs at this. There is a truth to our line, though, one that hints at possibilities that are much more complex than whatever genitalia our child might be born with: the truth that we ultimately have no idea who - rather than what - is growing inside my belly,\" she added.

Sommer Ray's Backside Grabbed In Stringy Vacation Bikini

Sommer Ray is getting her famous apple bottom grabbed and it's been caught on camera. The 24-year-old fitness model and social media sensation actually kept her booty grab so relevant this weekend, it got reposted by 30-year-old rapper Iggy Azalea - unsurprising, given that Sommer was bopping around to the Aussie's latest \"Sip It\" track. Sommer is currently jetted out from L.A. and on vacation, where both her 26 million Instagram and 10.4 million TikTok followers have been getting bikini action. Check it out below.  

Vacay Vibes

Scroll for the video. Sommer, who rarely comes without something skimpy, had gone for her classic bikini, opting for a summery floral pattern and definitely making it a thong affair. The star, dubbed \"Not Your Average Instagram Model\" by Forbes in 2018, is clearly proving the moniker rings true in 2021.

The video, seeing Ray with a girlfriend and prepping for the pool, showed her cheekily grabbing her pal's behind, with a right back atcha then coming as Sommer's backside, pretty bare, got a grab.

See The Video!

All glistening with sun-tanning oil and in a purple, black,and peachy string bikini, Sommer also rocked retro round shades and a trendy bandana, dancing around by a window to rapper Iggy and busting out her moves - \"Sommer vibin,\" a fan quickly replied.

\"Sip It\" by Iggy Azalea and Tyga in the caption sent mom of one Iggy big props, with the video then followed by some sunbathing action over on Sommer's Instagram. Over 1.1 million views were clocked to the booty grab. See more photos after the video.

How It All Started

Sommer, who now runs a bonafide empire with her Sommer Ray's Shop, has opened up on her humble beginnings as a social media star. Speaking to Forbes, she revealed it all started with wanting to be like her sister.

“She had a friend, who was a photographer, who would come over and do photo shoots with her. She started shooting me when I was 15. I was doing very mature photos for my age. I’ve always been more expressive, in a sexual way.\"

Body Like A Ferrari

Ray added: \"But that doesn’t mean that I’m like that as a person.\" Sommer, who has made 2021 headlines for opening up on her brief romance with rapper Machine Gun Kelly - and accusing him of cheating on her with actress Megan Fox - also touched on her muscle machine of a body, one she jokingly likened to a high-end sports vehicle.

“I worked hard for my body. I’ve sculpted it. I’m not going to just keep it in the garage. If you have a Ferrari you’re going to drive it.\"

LeBron James Gives Major Hint On His & Anthony Davis' Nearing Return To The Court

With their two best players, LeBron James and Anthony Davis, on the sideline due to injuries, the Los Angeles Lakers are noticeably struggling to consistently win games in the 2020-21 NBA season. While James and Davis are painfully watching them on the bench, the Lakers slowly found themselves dropping at the Western Conference rankings. From being the No. 1 ranked team in the loaded Western Conference earlier this season, they are currently sitting in the No. 5 spot with a 32-20 record.

LeBron James Says 'Weather Is Changing Soon'

As of now, it remains unknown when James and Davis will officially return to the court. Though they are showing a massive improvement with their rehabilitations James and Davis' respective injuries would take some time to heal. However, in an Instagram post, James gave a major hint regarding when fans will see him and Davis play together again this season.

\"The weatherman says the weather is changing soon and it predicts a thunderstorm is coming,\" James said. \"Folks prepare and take the proper caution measures to stay safe\"

'Father Time' Still Hasn't Hit LeBron James

At 36, there's no doubt that James is already at the near end of his career. However, compared to other players who are the same age as him, James is yet to be hit by \"Father Time\" and could still perform at a high level. Recently, Mark Medina of USA Today Sports talked to Dr. David Geier, an orthopedic surgeon and sports medicine specialist, regarding James' injury.

“I expect when he completely heals, he should be just like who he was before he got hurt,” Geier said.  “So short term, bad news. Long term, good news.”

Anthony Davis Injury Update

Davis' return to the court may be sooner than James', but his current injury is more complicated. The All-Star center has already missed the past 24 games because of persistent Achilles' tendon discomfort and an adjacent calf strain. As of today, Achilles' tendon injury is still considered the most feared in the world of basketball.

However, according to Marc Stein of New York Times, there's a growing belief inside the organization that Davis would rejoin the Purple and Gold after their five-game road trip against Eastern Conference teams, including the Toronto Raptors, Miami Heat, Brooklyn Nets, New York Knicks, and the Charlotte Hornets.

LeBron James & Anthony Davis' Injuries Could Benefit The Lakers

The absence of James and Davis is undeniably the major reason behind the Lakers' struggle in the 2020-21 NBA season. However, their respective injuries may end up being a blessing in disguise for the Purple and Gold. The days they spent on the sideline have given their bodies enough time to rest.

This would make sure that they are at their 100 percent when the real battle begins in the 2021 Playoffs. Compared to the previous year, the Lakers' road to the championship this season is expected to be tougher. However, as long as they have a healthy James and Davis in the postseason, the Lakers would have a realistic chance of bringing home another Larry O'Brien Trophy this year.

NBA Rumors: LA Lakers Could Trade Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, Alfonzo McKinnie & Draft Pick For Eric Bledsoe

The Los Angeles Lakers could face a huge dilemma regarding their starting point guard position in the 2021 offseason. Dennis Schroder may be currently committed in helping the Lakers defend their throne but when the 2020-21 NBA season is over, he would be needing to make a tough decision regarding his future. Schroder is currently in the final year of his contract and set to become an unrestricted free agent this summer.

The Lakers tried to prevent him from hitting the free agency market by offering him a contract extension, but Schroder decided that it would be best for him to ink a new deal in the 2021 free agency.

Lakers Plan B If Dennis Schroder Leaves

If Schroder ends up signing with another team, the Lakers would be left with no choice but to find a new starting point guard in the 2021 offseason. One of the potential trade targets for the Lakers is veteran point guard Eric Bledsoe of the New Orleans Pelicans. In a recent article, Brett Siegel of NBA Analysis Network suggested a way on how the Lakers would be able to acquire Bledsoe from the Pelicans.

In the proposed trade scenario, the Lakers would be sending a package that includes Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, Alfonzo McKinnie, and a 2022 first-round pick to the Pelicans in exchange for Bledsoe.

Why The Pelicans Would Make The Trade

The proposed trade deal would be a no-brainer for the Pelicans. It would help them address the logjam in their backcourt and allow them to give more playing time to young guards like Lonzo Ball, Kira Lewis Jr., and Nickeil Alexander-Walker. If the Pelicans want a veteran presence in their backcourt, they could simply re-sign Isaiah Thomas in the 2021 free agency.

The potential deal would also allow the Pelicans a veteran three-and-D wingman in KCP and a future first-round pick that they could use to add another talented prospect to their roster.

Replacing Dennis Schroder With Eric Bledsoe A 'Strong Move' For Lakers

Siegel believes that replacing Schroder with Bledsoe as their starting point guard is a \"strong move\" for the Purple and Gold since the latter is an \"impactful, experienced player.\"

\"While he is not a high-level scorer that will go for 18+ any night, Bledsoe makes up for his lack of offensive production by being a great one-on-one defender that plays physical. He is a very underrated two-way guard in this league and with the Lakers being a defensive-focused team, this move would definitely benefit them should they lose Schroder in free agency.\"

Eric Bledsoe's Price Might Be Too Expensive For Lakers

Bledsoe would undeniably be an intriguing acquisition for the Lakers. However, if the Pelicans would really ask for a package that includes Caldwell-Pope and a future first-round pick, it might be best for the Lakers to look for another replacement for Schroder. Bledsoe would definitely help them solve their major backcourt problem in case Schroder leaves, but he's not worth a future first-round pick.

Aside from his inconsistencies, Bledsoe has a history of underperforming in the playoffs where games matter the most.

NBA Rumors: Four-Team Blockbuster Would Send Karl-Anthony Towns To Warriors In 2021 Offseason

The 2020-21 NBA season is still far from over, but several crazy trade ideas that could possibly happen in the 2021 offseason have already started to surface in the league. These include a four-team blockbuster trade that would send All-Star center Karl-Anthony Towns to the Golden State Warriors. In the proposed trade scenario by Brett Siegel of NBA Analysis Network, the Warriors would get Towns and two future second-round picks, the Minnesota Timberwolves would receive Al Horford, James Wiseman, three first-round picks, and two second-round picks, the San Antonio Spurs would acquire Andrew Wiggins and Eric Paschall, and the Thunder would obtain a future first-round pick.

Warriors Finally Acquire Their Fourth Superstar

Though it would cost them a plethora of precious trade assets, the potential deal would make a lot of sense for the Warriors. The arrival of Towns in Golden State would enable them to fulfill their dream of adding a fourth superstar that would help Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, and Draymond Green carry reclaim their throne and revive their dynasty in the 2021-22 NBA season.

Towns would provide a major upgrade at the Warriors' starting center position, giving them a very reliable scoring option under the basket, a great rebounder, a quality rim protector, and a floor-spacer. This season, Towns is averaging 24.9 points, 11.1 rebounds, 4.5 assists, and 1.4 blocks while shooting 49.2 percent from the field and 38.9 percent from beyond the arc, per ESPN.

Karl-Anthony Towns Would Welcome A Trade To Golden State

As of now, Towns is yet to officially demand a trade from the Timberwolves but with the team likely heading into another huge disappointment, it may only be a matter of time before he follows in the footsteps of other superstars and starts finding his way out of Minnesota. Though he's less likely to be the main guy in Golden State, Towns would definitely love the idea of being traded to the Warriors.

Joining forces with Curry, Thompson, and Green in Bay Area would give him a realistic chance of winning his first NBA championship title next season.

Timberwolves Get Ready For Another Rebuild

The proposed trade deal would also be beneficial for the Timberwolves, especially if they decide to undergo another rebuild. By sending Towns to Golden State, they would be receiving a plethora of future draft assets that they could use to add more talented prospects to their roster.

Meanwhile, Wiseman would give the Timberwolves an immediate replacement for Towns in their frontcourt as their center of the future. While trying to find him a new home, Horford could serve as a mentor for Wiseman and the Timberwolves' young core.

Why The Spurs And The Thunder Would Make The Trade

Participating in the four-team blockbuster would also make a lot of sense for the Spurs and the Thunder. For the Spurs, they would be getting two young and talented wingmen in Wiggins and Paschall. Wiggins may have through plenty of ups and downs in the past years, but playing under Gregg Popovich could help him return to the right path to becoming a legitimate superstar in the league.

Meanwhile, the Thunder would also end up as a winner in the hypothetical blockbuster deal. Aside from successfully dumping Horford's massive salary, they would also be adding another first-rounder to their growing collections of future draft picks.

Britney Spears Challenges Sister To Wrestling Match For Birthday

Britney Spears is demanding a \"Southern chicks\" wrestling re-match with her sister. The 39-year-old pop princess yesterday marked sister Jamie Lynn Spears turning 30 - while the \"Toxic\" singer's Instagram post was a little late, it didn't fall short on the gushing or the photo. Britney, who is nearly ten years older than Netflix star sister Jamie Lynn, updated just ahead of the weekend to wish her sibling the best birthday ever, and her post came with a rare insight into her childhood. Check it out below.

Challenged To Wrestling Match

Scroll for the photo, one that's now driving fans nuts as it included Britney's ex-boyfriend Justin Timberlake. Going massively old-school, Britney had shared a candid moment with singer ex Justin and Jamie Lynn all cute glasses as a pre-teen, with the snap bringing a massive gush, plus Britney seeming ready to flex her fists in a wrestling match.

Taking to her caption as she opened \"Happy Belated Birthday to this beautiful soul,\" the blonde called her sibling's path an \"inspiration,\" before revealing how Jamie Lynn used to pin her right down.

See The Photo!

Revealing that she once took on a \"mother\" status to Jamie Lynn, Spears added: \"I love you so much and damn it I wish I was as smart as you at 30 !!!! It's weird to say that I was basically your momma when you were younger and yes I'm still older but your soul is and always has been wise !!!!\"

Then came the wrestle reveal. \"We play wrestled at home (such classy Southern chicks) 🐣🙄😹🤷🏼‍♀️🤷🏼‍♀️ and you put me to the floor in literally two seconds after I gave all my might .\"

 

Re-Match Challenge!

Spears added: \"I’ll never forget it !!! Maybe we should have a rematch.\"

Gaining over 11,000 likes overnight was 30-year-old Jamie Lynn swooping in to reply with a string of emoji, including a chick one. The former Nickelodeon star has been making headlines for backing her sister amid her 2008-commenced conservatorship, last year delivering a sharp message to the media.

\"Dear media, try not to repeat the mistakes of your past. Look where that got us. Do better. Everyone you meet is fighting a battle you know nothing about. Be kind. Always.\"

Fans Can't Take The JT Photo

Massively mentioned in the comments section was Britney's famous ex Justin Timberlake. The former couple, who dated from 1998-2002 and made global headlines for their now-iconic double denim red carpet look, were big-time shouted out by fans, one of whom stated: \"A picture with Justin 😳🥴🥴.\"

The post follows headlines Spears made for successfully receiving her COVID vaccine and reassuring fans that she \"felt nothing.\" Spears added: \"I'm fine\" as she revealed she'd been warned it would hurt like a \"bullet\" in your arm.

YouTuber Emma Chamberlain Has No Words In Stringy Bikini

Emma Chamberlain is sunbathing in a stringy bikini and she's got no words. The 19-year-old YouTube sensation and Chamberlain's Coffee founder, currently experiencing immense career success as she is also the face of luxury designer brand Louis Vuitton, has been making sure her Instagram following stays healthy, with a fresh post bringing some bikini action. Emma, who tends to go edgy or funky with her updates, had done both in her Friday share, and she gave her 12.6 million followers plenty to look at. Check it out below.

It's Always Bikini Season

Scroll for the photos, ones that come as Emma is profiled by every media outlet around, with the say-it-how-it-is star now dishing on her self-care routine. 

Opening with a casual bikini sunbathe, Emma's post today showed her plonked on her front and on grass while scrolling her phone. The social media sensation, who is running a veritable coffee empire with her brand, was on a lawn-set rug and stripped down to the tiniest red-print and halterneck bikini, also going mismatched in thong black bikini bottoms. 

Keep Scrolling For The Photos!

Shot with some glare reflection, but managing to highlight her gorgeous figure, Emma then drove her fans to swipe right, where images included some yellow-painted architecture, a fuzzy knitted wool shot alongside the star's red-painted nails, plus a toilet selfie - here, the edginess was back with full force.

Emma, who tends to offer a caption, was outta words, though, only using an emoji. \"FIRST,\" a fan quickly replied. Others, meanwhile, had noticed the shot of a crystal: \"Your hands be scary directions on that crystal,\" one wrote.

Emma, whose Signature Brew Bags are now offering up five different blends, is now making headlines more than just for her coffee - a \"very, very large cold brew with almond milk\" was her morning drink when Refinery29 profiled her back in September 2020. The star is fresh from a massive Glamour feature, one seeing her list hip brands including Tatcha for her skincare routine.

\"If someone touches my Tatcha, it's over, because that one looks like it was found in a cave in the seven wonders of the world or something.\"

Little Miss Popular

Emma added: \"You guys are making me feel like I'm J.Lo—it comes with the little gold spoon! Just get me a cheap Burt's Bees, because if I lose it, it's a nobody-gets-hurt type of thing.\"

Emma launched her coffee brand in 2019. She recalls childhood latte outings with her mother, noting the \"amazing\" cafes in Northern California and saying they turned her into a \"coffee snob\" at a young age. 

Emma's Instagram is now followed by celebrities including actress Bella Thorne and model Bella Hadid.

Miley Cyrus Opens Wide In Nudie Bath Soak

Miley Cyrus is opening wide with late-night bath action, and she's got something to show off. The 28-year-old superstar singer has hopped aboard the celebrity trend of diamond teeth grills, with footage on the \"Midnight Sky\" hit-maker's Instagram last night making a big deal out of her new bling. Posting for her 127 million followers on Thursday, Miley stripped right down for a bedtime bath soak, and it was nudie action and grills from the former Hannah Montana star. Check it out below.

Big Grill For Big Star

Scroll for the tub action. Miley, who has been making 2021 headlines for her Super Bowl LV performance and her new rocker image, was definitely channeling the latter. The blonde's videos, coming as selfies, showed her enjoying some late-night self-care, with Miley totally naked in her bath and just about staying inside Instagram's no-nudity rules.

Shot with red lighting and the bath water bouncing around her, Miley appeared a little blurry, but her point was crystal-clear. It was grinning from the singer, and one fat grill.

See The Grill Below!

Protecting her chest with a carefully-placed hand, Miley pouted for the camera, then opening that mouth wide to reveal both her famous smile and one very expensive-looking grill. Glitter galore on the lower set of teeth, with a second video even seeing the choppy-haired star pull down her lower lip to really show it off.

Miley's bathtub action has been making headlines this year, already seeing her reveal a knee injury with a Band-Aid during a soak. See the video and more photos below.

Taking It Back

Miley is fresh from celebrating 15 years since Hannah Montana first aired on the Disney channel. The daughter to Billy Ray Cyrus penned a long, hand-written note to mark the milestone, writing:

'Hi Hannah, It's been a while. 15 years to be exact... Since the first time I slid those blonde bangs over my forehead in the best attempt to conceal my identity and then slipped into a puke pink terry cloth robe with a bedazzled HM over the [heart].\"

\"I didn't know then…that is where you would live forever,' she added. More photos below!

Ushering In New Era

Cyrus added: \"Although you are considered to be an \"alter ego\" in reality there was a time in my life when you held more of my identity in your glovette than I did in my bare hands. You were a rocket that flew me to the moon and never brought me back down.\"

The bubblegum image is now long gone, with 2020 ushering in a punk rocker one via Plastic Hearts album, an EP already bringing smash-hit \"Prisoner\" track with 25-year-old singer Dua Lipa. Miley's last release was her 2019 SHE IS COMING album.

NBA Rumors: Four-Team Blockbuster Would Send Karl-Anthony Towns To Warriors In 2021 Offseason

The 2020-21 NBA season is still far from over, but several crazy trade ideas that could possibly happen in the 2021 offseason have already started to surface in the league. These include a four-team blockbuster trade that would send All-Star center Karl-Anthony Towns to the Golden State Warriors. In the proposed trade scenario by Brett Siegel of NBA Analysis Network, the Warriors would get Towns and two future second-round picks, the Minnesota Timberwolves would receive Al Horford, James Wiseman, three first-round picks, and two second-round picks, the San Antonio Spurs would acquire Andrew Wiggins and Eric Paschall, and the Thunder would obtain a future first-round pick.

Warriors Finally Acquire Their Fourth Superstar

Though it would cost them a plethora of precious trade assets, the potential deal would make a lot of sense for the Warriors. The arrival of Towns in Golden State would enable them to fulfill their dream of adding a fourth superstar that would help Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, and Draymond Green carry reclaim their throne and revive their dynasty in the 2021-22 NBA season.

Towns would provide a major upgrade at the Warriors' starting center position, giving them a very reliable scoring option under the basket, a great rebounder, a quality rim protector, and a floor-spacer. This season, Towns is averaging 24.9 points, 11.1 rebounds, 4.5 assists, and 1.4 blocks while shooting 49.2 percent from the field and 38.9 percent from beyond the arc, per ESPN.

Karl-Anthony Towns Would Welcome A Trade To Golden State

As of now, Towns is yet to officially demand a trade from the Timberwolves but with the team likely heading into another huge disappointment, it may only be a matter of time before he follows in the footsteps of other superstars and starts finding his way out of Minnesota. Though he's less likely to be the main guy in Golden State, Towns would definitely love the idea of being traded to the Warriors.

Joining forces with Curry, Thompson, and Green in Bay Area would give him a realistic chance of winning his first NBA championship title next season.

Timberwolves Get Ready For Another Rebuild

The proposed trade deal would also be beneficial for the Timberwolves, especially if they decide to undergo another rebuild. By sending Towns to Golden State, they would be receiving a plethora of future draft assets that they could use to add more talented prospects to their roster.

Meanwhile, Wiseman would give the Timberwolves an immediate replacement for Towns in their frontcourt as their center of the future. While trying to find him a new home, Horford could serve as a mentor for Wiseman and the Timberwolves' young core.

Why The Spurs And The Thunder Would Make The Trade

Participating in the four-team blockbuster would also make a lot of sense for the Spurs and the Thunder. For the Spurs, they would be getting two young and talented wingmen in Wiggins and Paschall. Wiggins may have through plenty of ups and downs in the past years, but playing under Gregg Popovich could help him return to the right path to becoming a legitimate superstar in the league.

Meanwhile, the Thunder would also end up as a winner in the hypothetical blockbuster deal. Aside from successfully dumping Horford's massive salary, they would also be adding another first-rounder to their growing collections of future draft picks.

NBA Rumors: LA Lakers Could Trade Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, Alfonzo McKinnie & Draft Pick For Eric Bledsoe

The Los Angeles Lakers could face a huge dilemma regarding their starting point guard position in the 2021 offseason. Dennis Schroder may be currently committed in helping the Lakers defend their throne but when the 2020-21 NBA season is over, he would be needing to make a tough decision regarding his future. Schroder is currently in the final year of his contract and set to become an unrestricted free agent this summer.

The Lakers tried to prevent him from hitting the free agency market by offering him a contract extension, but Schroder decided that it would be best for him to ink a new deal in the 2021 free agency.

Lakers Plan B If Dennis Schroder Leaves

If Schroder ends up signing with another team, the Lakers would be left with no choice but to find a new starting point guard in the 2021 offseason. One of the potential trade targets for the Lakers is veteran point guard Eric Bledsoe of the New Orleans Pelicans. In a recent article, Brett Siegel of NBA Analysis Network suggested a way on how the Lakers would be able to acquire Bledsoe from the Pelicans.

In the proposed trade scenario, the Lakers would be sending a package that includes Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, Alfonzo McKinnie, and a 2022 first-round pick to the Pelicans in exchange for Bledsoe.

Why The Pelicans Would Make The Trade

The proposed trade deal would be a no-brainer for the Pelicans. It would help them address the logjam in their backcourt and allow them to give more playing time to young guards like Lonzo Ball, Kira Lewis Jr., and Nickeil Alexander-Walker. If the Pelicans want a veteran presence in their backcourt, they could simply re-sign Isaiah Thomas in the 2021 free agency.

The potential deal would also allow the Pelicans a veteran three-and-D wingman in KCP and a future first-round pick that they could use to add another talented prospect to their roster.

Replacing Dennis Schroder With Eric Bledsoe A 'Strong Move' For Lakers

Siegel believes that replacing Schroder with Bledsoe as their starting point guard is a \"strong move\" for the Purple and Gold since the latter is an \"impactful, experienced player.\"

\"While he is not a high-level scorer that will go for 18+ any night, Bledsoe makes up for his lack of offensive production by being a great one-on-one defender that plays physical. He is a very underrated two-way guard in this league and with the Lakers being a defensive-focused team, this move would definitely benefit them should they lose Schroder in free agency.\"

Eric Bledsoe's Price Might Be Too Expensive For Lakers

Bledsoe would undeniably be an intriguing acquisition for the Lakers. However, if the Pelicans would really ask for a package that includes Caldwell-Pope and a future first-round pick, it might be best for the Lakers to look for another replacement for Schroder. Bledsoe would definitely help them solve their major backcourt problem in case Schroder leaves, but he's not worth a future first-round pick.

Aside from his inconsistencies, Bledsoe has a history of underperforming in the playoffs where games matter the most.

Carmen Electra Opens Wide For Coca-Cola In Cherry Bikini

Carmen Electra is bringing \"Have a Coke back\" and she's doing it in a skimpy bikini and high heels. The 48-year-old model and Baywatch actress took fans down a giant throwback route on Friday, posting for her 1.3 million Instagram followers and throwing in both her killer bikini body and the world's most-famous soda. Carmen, who has largely been focusing on promoting new GoGo skincare brand, took a well-earned break from the promo today, and it was all about that Coca-Cola and cheeky cherry-print bikini. Check it out below.

Classic Does It

Scroll for the photo, one that came with the Ohio native cheekily opening her mouth to take in some Coke. Carmen, born Tara Leigh Patrick, had posted outdoors and by a rugged bleached-wood stand, one serving Coca-Colas from its abandoned-looking refrigerator.

Looking good enough to eat and posing with legs apart and in the tiniest of stringy red bikinis with white fabrics and cherry prints all over it, the blonde wore pigtails as she seductively held the bottle to her mouth, clearly inviting her fans in.

See The Shot!

All curves in her barely-there bikini and wearing fun, matching, and red high heels to elongate her legs, Carmen sent out sexy eyes and bombshell vibes, taking to her caption and writing: \"Have a coke & a smile. #cherry #bikini.\"

\"Both are yummy,\" a fan quickly replied, with one fan merely writing: \"Best.\" Carmen made 2020 headlines for sharing her old Pepsi promo, one that brought \"natural bubbles\" and a double-entendre as the model sat on an airplane next to a Pepsi can. 

Scroll For More Photos!

Carmen is fresh from the launch of her beauty brand. Joining the likes of celebrities including Kim Kardashian, Kylie Jenner, Angela Simmons, and Savannah Chrisley, Electra now has a skincare line to her name.

“I have always been obsessed with my daily skin routine in order to keep my skin looking healthy and youthful. I know it’s worked magic for my skin over the years and I feel like now is a great time to share my secret with the world,\" she told New Beauty. More photos below.

Pornhub Searches Spike

Electra added: \"The name was also inspired by all my years as a passionate dancer and one of the songs from my album with Prince was called ‘Go Go Dancer.'”

2020 brought Carmen to front-page news after her appearances on the ESPN-aired The Last Dance. The NBA documentary saw the star outline having sex \"all over\" the Chicago Bulls court with ex Dennis Rodman. Following the airing, Carmen's daily Pornhub searches spiked from an average 1,500 per day to a staggering 1.7 million.

Ashley Alexiss All About 'Buns' As She Sprawls Out In Thong Swimsuit

Ashley Alexiss had buns on her mind as she took to Instagram on Wednesday, April 7, to share a booty-flaunting snap with her 2.2 million followers. The curvy Sports Illustrated swimsuit model posed in thong swimwear for a sultry snap by the sea, showcasing her bodacious backside as she sprawled tummy-down on a beach bed.  

As always, the gorgeous Bostonian captioned the post in a humorous way, showing off her bubbly personality.

\"I want buns of steel.. I also want buns of cinnamon.\"

 

Pretty In Pink

Ashley looked drop-dead gorgeous in a pink one-piece swimsuit, whose pastel tone beautifully brought out her bronzed tan. It had a low-cut back and even deeper sides, and left plenty of skin on show.

The sizzling blonde posed sideways for the curve-flaunting pic, giving fans a peek at the minuscule thong bottom that exposed her ample backside. The bathing suit's high cut had no trouble showing off her hip and thigh, which was accentuated by a pair of sheer stockings sporting white lacy bands.

Looking Like A Million Bucks

Ashley flashed a beaming smile as she gazed into the camera with a gleeful look in her eye. Her tousled locks were swept to the side, hiding half of her face under a cascade of unruly curls. This gave her a flirty air that was doubled by the voluptuous display of curves.

Her ear and cheekbone were exposed, allowing her pearly-white stud earring to be seen. The jewelry mirrored her thigh bands, as well as her perfect teeth and the shine of her cheek, lending an artistic feel to the snap.

Beach Babe 

A tag on the picture suggested that the eye-popping photo was taken by Ashley's husband, Travis Yohe. The model's life and business partner often snaps the photos she shares on her Instagram account, which range from sexy shoots for her swimsuit brand, Alexiss Swimwear, to sultry lingerie campaigns for other labels.

Travis did a fabulous job at capturing the stunner's beauty against a splendid seascape. The breathtaking scenery included a tranquil, turquoise sea and a bright-blue sky full of wispy clouds. 

The beige cushion Ashley lounged on almost looked like sand as she leaned on her bent elbows and stretched out her forearms in front of her body. The angle showcased the sinuous contour of her body, teasing her hourglass silhouette.

 

 

Fans Are Hooked

Ashley's online admirers were all over the \"bootylicious\" post, showing their appreciation in the huge number of likes and messages. More than 45,700 people double-tapped the photo, while 574 others took the time to compliment her in the comments section.

Fans raved about her beauty and sensational curves. 

\"You’ve got buns of plenty,\" said one person.

\"Grade A Buns, Burger King needs to call you,\" agreed another follower.

\"Travis KNOWS he's a lucky man,\" was a third reply.

Others directed their remarks at Ashley's hilarious caption.

\"New band name right there. Cinnamon Steel,\" suggested a fourth user.
