Andrew Wiggins is the most coveted player in this year's Draft, and in any of recent years. Now there's already talk that he could be signing a massive shoe contract in the neighborhood of $140 to $180 million.
The NBA continues to be at the forefront of the traditionally taboo topic of homosexuality and professional sports. In 2011, Phoenix Suns CEO Rick Welts became the first pro sports executive to publicly come out; earlier this year Jason Collins became the first active male athlete to do the same.

Following the release of the visuals to "Hilary $wank" today, Joey Bada$$ is announcing a followup EP to his Summer Knights mixtape. The project will feature five cuts from the mixtape, and two new joints, "My Jeep" and "My Yout." Slated for an October 29th release date, the Summer Knights EP will feature 7 tracks.

NBA players are a lot like stocks, constantly going up and down in value. Each year, some players inevitably take a turn for the worse, as age, injuries or complacency set in. Let's take a look at some players who are in danger of falling off this upcoming season.
The past two weeks were dominated by Drake, who in turn dominated the charts with Nothing Was The Same. Now Justin Timberlake has taken over, with the release of The 20/20 Experience 2, his second album in the span of a year, and his second album to debut at #1 in that same time.
As the very exciting year of Lebron 10's comes to an end, its a good time to look back at all of our favorite colorways to release!With so many awesome colorways made, its hard to narrow it down to the best ones.In honor of the launch of the Lebron 11, we have compiled a list of the top 10 Lebron 10's to drop!(Lebron 10 lows, PE's, and samples excluded.)
Lots of talk lately about comparing great players from different eras and who would win. Michael Jordan let it be known that he'd beat anyone from any era, and some moron in a bar even pulled a knife while debating who was better between LeBron James and Jordan.
Grills have been a part of hip hop culture for some time. From Flava Flav to A$AP Rocky, and of course Nelly and Paul Wall's famous ode, we're not likely to see this trend dying anytime soon. Take a look through our gallery of the various rappers and R&B singers who have donned fronts, including Jay Z, Big Sean, Rihanna, and more!
This past week saw a few big mixtape drops, from the likes of Game and Nipsey Hussle, Lil Durk, and The Ying Yang Twins (jokes...but they really did drop a mixtape). Childish Gambino came through with a new record, "Yaphet Kotto," which is always a big deal since he's dropping music far and in between (although a new album is on the way).
Multiple colorways of the LeBron 11 Lifestyle collection will hit retailers tomorrow. Designed for comfort and not for play, a phylon injected and compression-molded heel gives the shoe a soft yet responsive feel, fit for a king.Amongst those dropping is the Reflective Silver "King of the Streets", which sports a leather build with a 3M treatment that will make this shoe shine.
HotNewHipHop has partnered up with SneakerMob and Villa for the Refresh Scavenger Hunt taking place on October 23rd. The winners who successfully complete the scavenger hunt, will be able to purchase either the "Wolf Grey" Nike Air Yeezy 2's or the Cork Nike Lebron 10's at box price. For those, who cannot attend the hunt, will receive an online prize of a Villa x HNHH Prize Pack.
The Toronto Raptors are undergoing a culture overhaul with their franchise. They brought in a new GM, Masai Ujiri, whose first order of business was trading Andrea Bargnani, who was an albatross of sorts of the Bryan Colangelo helmed era.
DJ Khaled took to instagram to showcase his recent pick-up, the Jordan 5 "Bel Air."Of course, Khaled couldn't simply take a picture of his pants neatly cuffed over the vibrant 5's with a sepia filter, or whatever it's called. He had to take it to NYC and stand on top of a damn Maybach to really show out in style.Gotta wonder if his chauffeur is rocking the Bel-Air's behind the wheel as well.
Kevin Garnett was traded to the Brooklyn Nets, and is now making his departure from Boston official as he's putting up his $4.85 million New England mansion up for sale.On a 12 acre lot, this 5 bedroom, 5 bathroom home has 11,000 square feet in living space.
Along with emceeing, DJing and breakdancing, graffiti is one of the four fundamental elements of hip-hop, and it's been an integral part of the culture since the beginning. Films such as Charlie Ahearn's Wild Style and Stan Lathan's Beat Street helped define this vivid form of expression in the 80s, and it's since grown into an international phenomenon.
NBA fans in the Philippines were understandably excited when members of the Rockets and Pacers touched down to play a pre season game in Manila. After all, this is the first NBA game being played in the Philippines.
Even though there have been countless alleged sources verifying that Lamar Odom is using hard drugs like crack, he is maintaining that he's not. Looking to keep his NBA career in tact, Odom has been speaking to several league executives about a possible contract.
After losing LeBron James to South Beach, the fans in Cleveland are understandably worried about losing their new franchise player, Kyrie Irving, to free agency. This past summer a Cleveland area reporter said that inside sources told him that Irving wanted to leave the Cavs, which caused the Cavaliers point God to respond that he had no intentions of leaving.

More bad news coming out of the Lamar Odom and Khloe Kardashian camp. We reporter earlier today that Odom had pled not guilty to the DUI charge he picked up this past summer for reportedly being high on an illicit substance.
It was strange when the tracklist for Old was released, as the album was divided into two different halves, but at first listen it's obvious why: they represent two sides of Danny Brown's multifaceted psyche and personality, as well as the old and the new.
If you recall in the 2012 All Star Game introductions, Derrick Rose famously did not dance along with the four other starters. Some took this to mean D Rose is uptight, but here's the Bulls franchise point guard at his son's first birthday party dressed up.
This summer we caught word that not only had Lamar Odom been taking serious drugs, but his problem had escalated out of control. Shortly after, Lamar was booked for a DUI after reportedly driving too slow on the highway and failing multiple field sobriety tests. Most recent report from Odom was that he was "battling demons," and dealing with this issue with his family.
As far as basketball sneakers go, customs have generally been reserved to Jordan's, Lebrons, and foams. AMAC however, took on the low cut KD6 to create his latest ice cream themed piece of art. The sneaker features a melting canvas of colors throughout the upper, as well as on the check.
Charles Barkley has found himself in some predicaments during and after his playing career, but no one seems to mind, and we all give Chuck a pass because's a lovable gus, and he's really a man of the people - just ask the old lady he danced with at Ray Allen's birthday. Over the weekend, Barkley's alma mater, Auburn was taking on Ole Miss in football, so the Round Mound attended the tailgating a
