One of the many joys of a new NBA season is watching talented up-and-comers blossom into stars, making what sports fans vaguely refer to as "The Leap".

Like anything, sneakers are guilty of taking on trends. Some trends stick around and are used again throughout the years, sparingly. Others, are just beaten to a pulp and become nauseating at the very site. Recently, there has been an overwhelming amount of repeated patterns and colorways that need to be addressed.
The Miami Heat started their season of right by receiving their championship rings, defeating an Eastern conference rival on a nationally televised game, and topping it all off with a Chris Bosh videobomb. During their historic 27 game winning streak, Bosh, LeBron James, and Dwyane Wade caught the videobomb bug when their teammates were being interviewed after wins - you can see my grades for eac
Halloween arrives tomorrow, and it's the time of the year where grown ass men and women can get away with dressing up as whatever they want, really, and usually for women, that involves showing as much skin as possible.
We've previously reviewed at this sneaker this sneaker as a "carbon fiber" Nike LeBron 11. Traditionally, the LeBron 11 is constructed of foamposite material. However, this "Miami Nights" version of the sneaker includes a carbon fiber print, as well as an icy blue sole that creeps its way onto the outsole.Cloaked in black, the sneaker is contrasted by fusion pink and includes dark grey accents.
One of the main storylines going into this season is the return of Derrick Rose, as fans had waited nearly a year and a half from the time he injured his ACL and he played real meaningful NBA minutes. We saw him look explosive and return to form during the preseason, but he hadn't really made a full comeback until he played a regular season game.
The NBA is back! And last night, there was plenty of heat that had the sneakerheads talking.
Here's a funny Vine making the rounds of a dude dunking on Michael Jordan. Well, that's the sensationalized title, but what it really is is a guy in an office who catches a mini ball in the post and makes some pivot moves on a life size Jordan cutout.

Sneakers draw on inspiration from almost anything. The Air Jordan 14 was designed to resemble a Ferrari. Every sports city has a sneaker colorway modeled after their teams. We've seen multiple kicks themed on Holidays. Hell, the LeBron 8 "Sprite" was inspired by a soda. One of the most popular places that sneakers draw on inspiration is on the big screen.

Andre Drummond continues his Vine/Instagram video dominance. This past summer we saw Drummond dunk on, and get dunked on by girls, work on his handles at the airport, and then show us his new funky free throw technique. His latest video installment features him jumping over a grandpa and dunking - he cleared the elderly man with ease and took off from fairly far out.

In a blow to sneakerheads everywhere, word on the streets is the Black/Cement Air Jordan 3 '88 will NOT be releasing. That type of news is too diabolical, even for a Monday. After the White/Cement 3 '88 released it was almost a certainty amongst the sneaker community that the black version would also be retro'd.
Derrick Rose says he's 100 percent healthy, but is still finding his rhythm on the court, and once he does it will be "scary" for the opposition. During his rehab process, Rose had told people that he was more explosive than before, and stronger then prior to his ACL injury. He looked dominate in the preseason as each game he was playing with more confidence, and making sharper decisions.
DJ Khaled has been behind some of the hottest records of the last few years and if there's one thing he's made consistently clear it's that he has a winning formula for hits. This is also his greatest fault. It's never been so clear how one dimensional DJ Khaled's music really is than here on Suffering From Success, the DJ's seventh studio album.

Speaking about his biggest rivals in the league today, LeBron James says there is no one individual rival for him. Measuring the greatness of LeBron has shifted from putting him up against Kobe Bryant, Kevin Durant, and Paul Pierce, and is now about seeing how he stacks up against the all-time greatest players.
Nothing too big transpired on the charts this week when it comes to hip-hop. That's not to say there weren't hip-hop releases-- there most definitely were, however, none could top Drake's Nothing Was The Same at #4 on the Billboard 200. And if DJ Khaled's low sales projections are correct, Khaled probably won't top Drizzy either next week.
