Kelly Oubre Jr. on youth of Suns: Kelly Oubre Jr. is one of the newest members of the Suns, and he doesn't think Phoenix's youth will limit the team's success. The Wizards traded Oubre and Austin Rivers to the Suns in a deal for Trevor Ariza, who is one of the NBA's premier 3-and-D players. Oubre, a fourth-year swingman out of Kansas, has gradually improved with each season, and he's ready to contribute to a developing Suns team. "It's a very young team, but at the end of the day we all have pretty much the same energy. We all want to get better, we all want to play basketball and play great playing basketball," Oubre told The Athletic.

Chance the Rapper shared his regrets about recording a song with R. Kelly during his appearance in the final episode of Lifetime's six-part documentary series Surviving R. Kelly.

“At the time, it wasn’t even present in my mind that people could feel any type of way about his presence on a track of mine,” Chance told cultural critic and writer Jamilah Lemieux in an interview in May, a portion of which was aired in the docuseries. “I think for a long time I was only able to understand R. Kelly’s situation and presence in the world when it comes down to his trial and his accusations and his accusers as a victim.”

Liverpool lining up swoop for Kelly

Liverpool lining up swoop for Kelly Liverpool are eyeing up a swoop for Bristol City left-back Lloyd Kelly to replace Alberto Moreno this month. According to The Bristol Post, Liverpool are showing an interest in Kelly as they prepare to offload Moreno. The Spanish defender, Moreno, has been linked with an exit from Anfield over the past couple of months and is though to want a move back to Spain. Kelly, on the other hand, has been in excellent form for Bristol City in the Championship this season. The youngster has been a standout for the club and is though to be one of the most promising defenders in the division. He has caught the eye of Liverpool, who are looking for a player to challenge Andy Robertson for his place in the starting line-up. The 20-year-old made 14 appearances last season for Bristol City, but has now become a first-team regular under Lee Johnson.

During Chance’s Lollapalooza set in 2014, he brought out Kelly as a surprise guest. In 2015, Chance made a cameo in Kelly’s “Backyard Party” video as well featuring Kelly on his track “Somewhere in Paradise.”

While in hindsight he regrets working with Kelly, Chance’s full interview drew criticism after an excerpt from it suggested he didn't “care” to believe the numerous women who have accused Kelly of sexual abuse "because they were Black women."

The rapper quickly clarified his intentions on Twitter.

Chance wrote: "...the truth is any of us who ever ignored the R Kelly stories, or believed he was being set up/attacked by the system (as lack men often are) were doing so at the detriment of black women and girls. I apologise to all of his survivors for working with him and for taking this long to speak out." He also added, “Regardless of the proximity of beneficial BW in your life, or being black yourself, we are all capable of subconsciously discrediting BW and their stories because its indoctrinated.”

Research has shown that Black girls are perceived by adults as much less innocent than white girls and are sexualised from an early age. So, given the truth in Chance’s initial comments, some social media users commended the 25-year-old for being honest and apologetic about his own biases. Others weren’t satisfied with his explanation.
