Cavaliers' Thompson Fined For Inappropriate Gesture Towards Fan

Cavaliers' Thompson Fined For Inappropriate Gesture Towards Fan On Thursday, Cleveland Cavaliers Executive Vice President of Basketball Operations, Kiki Vandeweghe announced that centre Tristan Thompson would be fined $15,000 USD for “Inappropriate gestures towards a fan”. It was reported that he pointed his middle finger at a fan in the crowd during the Cavaliers game against the Brooklyn Nets at Barclays Centre in Brooklyn. The incident occurred at the end of the game, after shooting guard Alec Burke’s hit a game winning shot for Cleveland to hand the Nets their seventh straight loss. There was no word on any suspension regarding the incident, but further information regarding suspensions should probably come out on the weekend. Thompson’s incident will be re-evaluated Friday, when the NBA will discuss any further fines/suspensions. Tristan Thompson is currently in his eighth season for Cleveland at the age of 23. Thompson is averaging 11.8 PPG, 11.8 RPG, 2.1 APG, while shooting 58.5% from the field. He’s playing an important role for the Cavaliers, as head coach Larry Drew is playing Thompson over 30 minutes a night. He will be really missed by the Cavaliers should he miss a game. The struggling Cavaliers without LeBron James are carrying a record of 5-19, the third worst record in the Eastern Conference.

Brooklyn Nine - Nine - Premieres Thursday, Jan 10 at 9/8c. SNL alum Andy Samberg and Emmy winner Andre Braugher lead this diverse, critically acclaimed ensemble that solves crimes like only they can - with tons of humor and the heart to match.

Brooklyn Nine - Nine is an American police television sitcom that premiered on Fox on September 17, 2013. Created by Dan Goor and Michael Schur, the series revolves around Jake Peralta

I really enjoy Brooklyn Nine-Nine, the police station-set sitcom that ran for five seasons on Fox and now makes a triumphant return for its sixth on NBC.

The ensemble cast is one of TV’s best, where even the characters who only drop by once or twice per season are played by actors so good, they immediately mesh with everything else that’s going on. The show’s presentation — lots of wide shots to let comedic bits play out — enhances its jokes, and those jokes frequently make me chuckle.

But I have never quite gotten over the hurdle to loving this show, in the way that so many people do. I’m glad it’s back — it has more stories to tell with these characters, as a twist unveiled at the very end of the season six premiere proves. But when my co-workers, my colleagues, and my friends rave about how Brooklyn Nine-Nine is their absolute favourite, a show they couldn’t live without, I smile and nod and don’t quite get it.

Brooklyn Nine - Nine is no exception. In the second episode of the new season — almost as if on cue — it proffers a flashback that reveals When cutecoms are crafted well, they’re a breeze to watch, and even when they’re crafted less well, they’re frequently a lot of fun, a respite from the world at large.

The first season of the television sitcom Brooklyn Nine - Nine premiered September 17, 2013 on Fox and concluded March 25, 2014 with 22 episodes.

But it makes me feel a little bad with Brooklyn Nine-Nine, a terrific show made by talented people, that I can’t quite proselytise as much as its most ardent fans.

And I think I’ve finally figured out that what holds me at arm’s length from the series is exactly what makes so many other people love it: It’s what I call a cutecom.

In a cutecom, the characters essentially all like each other and the universe more or less plays fair. The longer a cutecom runs, the less conflict it has.

It’s not a place devoid of tension, since conflict is what makes stories go, but it is a place where tension rarely arises between the main characters. And if it does, it will quickly be smoothed over.

Shaqiri's rise sees Liverpool cool Pulisic interest

Shaqiri's rise sees Liverpool cool Pulisic interest Liverpool look set to cool their interest in long-term transfer target Christian Pulisic because of the development of summer signing Xherdan Shaqiri. As per a report from Goal, Klopp has been delighted with the impact Shaqiri has had since this season. The Swiss international made the move to Anfield following Stoke’s relegation, meaning the Reds were able to pick him up on the cheap. He has since worked his way into the side at Liverpool and impressed when given the chance, leaving Klopp to rethink his transfer targets. Chelsea continue to be linked with Pulisic, despite the fact he is no longer a first-team regular at Dortmund as a result of the form of Jadon Sancho. With Eden Hazard seemingly on his way out, plans are being put in place to snap up his potential replacement as soon as possible. Pulisic has often spoken of his admiration for Klopp, but the American winger may be forced into settling for a move to Stamford Bridge in the near future.

The second season of the television sitcom Brooklyn Nine - Nine premiered September 28, 2014 on Fox and ended May 17, 2015 with 23 episodes.

That broad summary defines a lot of sitcoms, especially family sitcoms. But what sets a cutecom apart is how the group of characters at the center of the show will effectively tolerate any behavior from someone within their group, so long as there’s an earnest effort to grow and change. For instance: Brooklyn Nine-Nine’s Charles Boyle (Joe Lo Truglio) started the series as the office irritant, the guy who got under everybody’s skin. He hasn’t really stopped being that, but he has modulated himself slightly over time, which has led to the other characters being more forgiving of his over-the-top antics.

These shows also have a tendency to rely on external forces to provide the tensions and conflicts that drive the stories, meaning conflict almost always arrives from outside of the core setting and characters. On a series like Brooklyn Nine-Nine, that might take the form of the case that needs to be solved in a given week, but it also, increasingly, has to do with how the characters confront societal ills and larger problems within the NYPD. Similarly, think of Parks and Recreation — which didn’t start out as a cutecom but absolutely became one in its last few seasons — where most of the conflict was driven by the townspeople of Pawnee making ridiculous demands of their government. (These two shows share a co-creator, Michael Schur, but the showrunner of Brooklyn Nine-Nine is Parks vet Dan Goor.)

Effectively, many of these shows ultimately become case-of-the-week shows; even Parks often featured some government crisis of the week or another. But because it’s not exactly funny to laugh about large institutional problems within the police department or local government, cutecoms often leaven the mood with more and more ridiculous guest stars of the week, or by leaning heavily on goofy tropes. Brooklyn Nine-Nine is no exception. In the second episode of the new season — almost as if on cue — it proffers a flashback that reveals some surprising things about Hitchcock and Scully’s past as partners.

They build on the idea of the hangout sitcom by wedding its best elements to some ideas that are just serious enough to add weight and dramatic stakes. They’re often set in workplaces, but they don’t have to be. For instance, I think New Girl, when that show was at its best in its first couple of seasons, was a hangout sitcom with cutecom aspirations.

LeBron James: 'I’ve always wanted to play with Carmelo Anthony'

LeBron James: 'I’ve always wanted to play with Carmelo Anthony' Anthony has not played since he parted ways with the Rockets in late November after appearing in just 10 games. The former star averaged 13.4 points and 5.4 rebounds per game during his time with Houston. A report from the Los Angles Times earlier this month said the Lakers have “no interest” in acquiring Anthony.

Brooklyn Nine - Nine star Chelsea Peretti revealed today that she will be leaving the show during its upcoming sixth season. Writing on Twitter, the actress said, "I won't be doing a full season of Brooklyn Nine Nine in Season 6. But that doesn’t mean I won’t ever be back, winky face emoji, heart emoji.

But Brooklyn Nine - Nine is no ordinary show, and it works to ensure that its signature gags are not repetitive, but iterative—familiar enough to invoke excitement and/or fondness, but with a fresh enough twist that the gag, and the Brooklyn Nine - Nine gang participating in it, gains a new layer each time

And at their best, cutecoms really do offer viewers an alternate place to visit every week, a reality where your TV friends are always ready to welcome you with open arms. Which is a good thing! When shows are as well-crafted and as well-acted as Brooklyn Nine-Nine is, it’s easy to get lost in them, week after week, and then to spend just as much time rewatching favourite episodes later on. When you get into a show like this and it’s cancelled before its time, it doesn’t just feel like losing a TV show; it feels like losing a second home.

Yet I typically resist the cutecom, just a little bit. New Girl lost me when it broke up its central coupling (Nick and Jess!! Forever!!), then tried to mostly sweep under the rug the emotions that both were feeling in favour of just getting back to the hijinks. And Parks & Rec lost me just a bit when it set up the idea that Leslie Knope would have to choose between the job she loved and the guy she loved, since government employees weren’t allowed to date each other, and then proceeded to effectively pull that plot out of the story entirely, resolving it in a way that let her both have the guy and keep running for office.

The cutecom resolution, where everything works out in the end, shortchanged the story I was more interested in.

The " Nine - Nine " is a tight-knit group, bound by strong friendships as much as the badge. Many of the cops have known each other for years, especially Detective Peralta (Andy Samberg) and civilian administrator Gina Linetti (Chelsea Peretti). Their characters are both from the same Brooklyn

To be clear, this is absolutely on me, not the show. Parks wouldn’t have been Parks in later seasons without Leslie and Ben’s relationship as one of its bedrocks. But when I look at the sitcoms I love most, shows like One Day at a Time and Superstore and The Good Place, they tend to have a lot of conflict in them, conflict that isn’t resolved particularly easily. The characters can like each other and still fight. They can confront weighty problems and never quite overcome them. And they can create an alternate world I want to visit every week, but one that I personally find more inviting because it’s got struggle baked into it.

Again: That’s just me! But it means that for as much as I like everything Brooklyn Nine-Nine does, I’m never going to adore it the way so many of my friends do. When push comes to shove, it will usually aim for the reassurance of a world where these people just want to make each other better. And season six of Brooklyn Nine-Nine will offer that reassurance as surely and as humorously as the first five seasons did. But when push comes to shove, I’ll always look for something a little bit spikier.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine returns Thursday on NBC at 9 pm Eastern.
