Wednesday’s A.M. Hot Clicks: Kristal Silva; White Men Can’t Jump Getting a Remake
White Men Can't Jump, The Remake
Remaking classing TV shows and movies is a risky proposition. For every success (21 Jump Street), there are several misses (whoever made Love Don't Cost a Thing should be jailed). But I've always thought White Men Can't Jump is ripe for a remake, and yesterday, it became official. Our pals at Fox Sports decided to cast the movie using real NBA players and I think Gordon Hayward needs to work on his trash talking.

The Warriors held a ceremony Monday to officially begin the construction of their new arena in downtown San Francisco.
