NBA Finals on TV: A healthy ‘hatred’ will be on display

Plenty of TV viewers tend to avoid reruns, but not Mike Breen. “I can watch old episodes of ‘The Odd Couple’ and ‘The Honeymooners’ over and over and over,” he insists. So it’s no surprise that the veteran play-by-play commentator relishes the thought of seeing the Golden State Warriors and Cleveland Cavaliers hook up in the NBA Finals for the third straight year beginning Thursday (6 p.m., ABC) in Oakland. In this case, familiarity can breed an entertaining brand of contempt. Draymond Green, LeBron James “Even though I grew up a Knicks fan, I always wanted to see the Celtics and Lakers go at it,” Breen says. “Great teams like… Read More

A half-foot shorter than Gobert, with far less leaping ability, Green nevertheless timed his jump, wedged his hand between ball and cylinder, and blocked the shot.

Angelina Jolie on motherhood: ‘I try to lead by example, being conscious of others’

Angelina Jolie has been friends with Marianne Pearl for more than a decade now. Shortly after Angelina and Brad Pitt got together, they announced that Jolie would play Marianne in the film adaptation of her memoir, A Mighty Heart. Brad produced the film and while Angelina didn’t end up getting an Oscar nomination for the role, she was critically praised, etc. Angelina did a lot of research with Pearl, and they became good friends.

I’m not 100% sure why Pearl interviewed Jolie, but I suspect… Read More
