Former President Bill Clinton is one of the most recognizable faces in the world after spending eight years in the Oval Office. However, what is less well known is the fact President Clinton has a good knowledge of the NBA’s Milwaukee Bucks franchise far beyond that of an armchair fan. The personal friend of Bucks co-owner Wes Edens, President Clinton has obviously been enjoying the growth of the franchise under the leadership of the Fortress Investments Group co-founder.
To see the former President at a playoff game in Milwaukee is not a surprise as many famous faces arrive at courtside when teams reach the postseason. However, the recent game between the Bucks and New York Nets in the Big Apple saw the arrival of the former President at courtside to cheer on the team led by Wes Edens. The former President seemed to be a consistent fan of the Bucks as he discussed the future of the franchise with NBA TV from his seat in New York. President Clinton not only praised Wes Edens and his management group but singled out Giannis Antetokounmpo as one of the best players in the NBA at the moment.

Wes Edens is a former donor to the Democratic Party of President Clinton who is also known to enjoy a close relationship with Bucks co-owner Marc Lasry. Taking control of the Bucks in 2014, the main achievement of the management team headed by Wes Edens has been the construction of a purpose-built arena for the Bucks fans to enjoy. When purchasing the NBA franchise, the Bucks were stranded in the third-oldest arena in the league and had failed to trouble the playoffs for many years. An almost instant turnaround was praised by President Clinton as the franchise has become known for combining new arrivals in the league with veterans who aid in the development of young players. President Clinton reserved his praise for George Hill and Brooks Lopez who he feels add to the success of the team.

Phelps revealed that sharing his story was created by his drive to help others seek out professional help. Visit talkspace on Instagram for updates.
Talkspace was also featured in an article titled, “Relationship Advice from Talkspace,” written by Steven Smith. The article discusses how the app will provide couples therapy as well. Talkspace reveals that couples who are cohabitating need to ensure they have the tools to handle the relationship well. One of the key tools to stay healthy and happy in a relationship is autonomy. Though many people seek advice from their friends and family, they might not have the best perspective. Talkspace encourages people to take relationship advice from friends and family with a grain of salt. When seeking information from people outside of the intimate relationship, the couple doesn’t learn how to negotiate their relationship.
Talkspace also indicates that is important to manage the meltdown. Each person in the couple is human and prone to insecurities. Anything might provoke an overreaction to mistakes. The freak out could be caused by jealousy or fears of abandonment. However, it is important for the people in the relationship to bring up their issues without blaming the other.
It is also important for couples that are cohabitating to have open communication at the heart of the relationship. Couples who are able to communicate in healthy ways about the joys and struggles of the relationship are more likely to work through the meltdown.
