Williams Fierce Catsuit, LiAngelo Works Out W/Lakers, Colangelo's Fake Accounts, Randall Out $60 Mill

Serena Williams gave birth last September, took some time off, and is now back on the court trying to win her 24th Grand Slam. An unseeded Williams won her first match at the French Open and will now face the #17 seed. Serena's black Nike bodysuit with a red waistband made a statement. Serena responded by saying, "All the moms out there that had a tough pregnancy and have to come back and try to be fierce, in a middle of everything. That's what this represents. You can't beat a cat suit, right?"
LiAngelo Ball is back from Lithuania, and since he won't be going back to UCLA (suspended by the Bruins for shoplifting during a team trip to China), is working on his NBA draft prospects. On Tuesday he worked out with the Los Angeles Lakers (where his brother Lonzo plays). LiAngelo also has a workout scheduled with the Golden State Warriors, but it's unclear whether any team thinks he's matured enough as a player to draft him.
In an odd story, there is circumstantial evidence that the Philadelphia 76ers President of Basketball Operations Manager Bryan Colangelo used five fake twitter accounts to criticize players such as the Sixers Joel Embiid and Markelle Fultz. Colangelo has denied the allegations and said, "This storyline is disturbing to me on many levels, as I am not familiar with any of the other accounts that have been brought to my attention, nor do I know who is behind them or what their motives may be in using them."
In other 76ers news, Coach Brett Brown agreed to a 3-year extension with the team.
Cleveland Browns' Safety, Damarious Randall, may be regretting his enthusiasm. He recently tweeted "if the Cleveland Cavaliers win the NBA Finals he’ll buy a jersey for anyone who retweets him". He currently has over 643,000 retweets. At this rate, if the Cavs win, he's on the hook for over $60 million dollars. (Jerseys cost $99.99 each)
