As the NBA prepares for its final few weeks, the WNBA is getting ready to tip off its 2018 season tonight (May 18).

On Sunday, May 20, ESPN will roll out the latest installment of the ‘Life Needs Sports’ campaign with ‘Bossy,’ featuring some of the best players in the WNBA.

The campaign, which will run across television, radio, digital and social platforms, features WNBA stars including floor generals like the Minnesota Lynx’s Maya Moore and the Phoenix Mercury’s Diana Taurasi, as well as paint protectors like the Los Angeles Sparks’ Candace Parker and the Washington Mystics’ Elena Delle Donne.

The spot conveys that in life, strong, confident, assertive women are sometimes negatively labeled “bossy,” but sports serve as a reminder that these traits are to be celebrated.

Underscored by DeJ Loaf’s track Big Ole Boss, the spot concludes with the message that “Life says you’re bossy.

Sports make you a boss.”

There s probably a law against launching a new headphone line without the proper celebrity endorsement.

Right out of the gate, Muzik s got em in spades.

The hardware start up is launching its first pair – the fittingly titled One – and has already lined up a ton of endorsements, including athletes like Chris Paul and Elena Delle Donne.

In fact, here s a quote Broncos linebacker Von Miller tossed our way about the cans, I ve stayed close with the Muzik team through development and have been involved in building the brand behind-the-scenes leading up to this moment launch .

I m dedicated to making Muzik One the best and now that I ve found a product that I truly believe in, I am excited to be all in.

The key selling point here are what the company refers to as hot keys, which trigger functionality on a variety of different services, including, most notably, Spotify, with whom the startup has a partnership.

On 13 September, a hacking group with suspected ties to the Russian government leaked what purported to be evidence that at least four US athletic superstars — Simone Biles, Elena Delle Donne and the Williams sisters — had tested positive for drugs.

A series of confidential files reportedly hacked from the computer systems of the World Anti-Doping Agency Wada were published online by a group calling themselves the 'Fancy Bears Hack Team' and quickly circulated on social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter.

The US athletes and authorities who govern their medical testing have since spoken out about the release of sensitive data, with Wada pointing the finger of blame directly at Russia.

While the leaked documents do indeed contain medical records of athletes like Biles and the Williams sisters, upon inspection, the wild claims of the hackers start to fall apart.

Serena Williams was taking oxycodone, hydromorphone and prednisone, according to the files.

"In each of the situations, the athlete has done everything right in adhering to the global rules for obtaining permission to use a needed medication," he said in a statement.

"NBA Live 19" lets men and women play together on mixed-gender teams, a first for a professional sports game.

"Live 19" also allows you to make custom female players for the first time, and both custom characters and real-world WNBA players can mix it up with the men in the game's streetball modes.

In "NBA Live 19," women feature more prominently in the game's core modes, but there's still a long way to go towards equal representation in these games.

This year's "NBA Live 19" breaks new ground as the first professional sports game to offer mixed gender competition, continuing a progressive trend from developer EA Sports.

But EA Sports has quietly been taking strides to create games that reflect a global athletic community and include women competing at the highest level of their respective fields of competition.

In 2015, EA added 12 international women's teams to "FIFA 16," another first.
