The topic of James Harden is a sore one in Oklahoma City after they traded him away last season only to see him develop into arguably the best two guard in the NBA. Now teamed with Dwight Howard in Houston, Harden and the Rockets are a formidable for the Thunder in the West.
Last night two fans decided to ignore decorum and wore their Rockets jerseys while sitting courtside. One dude had on a Dwight Howard Rockets jersey, and the other had a red Rockets Dwight jersey.

The Nike LeBron 11 "T-Rex" will release in a crib booty, toddler size, pre school, and grade school on November 29th, Black Friday. To complete the maturation, the Nike LeBron 11 "T-Rex" mens version will also be hitting retailers.
After the release of the Galaxy Foamposites, two brothers Thierry and Kevin Mofo, placed the elusive kicks on EBay. The first time Ebay-ers, from Quebec, were shocked to find somebody had placed a whopping $96,750 bid on the kicks. Before the Canadian duo had a chance to find out if the buyer was good for the money, Ebay pulled the auction, claiming the first time sellers didn't qualify to sell them. What does that even mean?
A fan named John sent him a hand written letter, and in it he tells a story of how he won a $120 bet with a friend of his by using J.R. Smith in NBA 2K13. Feeling he owed a debt to the Knicks swingman, he sent half of his winnings, $60, to J.R. along with the note.

Sekure D is responsible for the Air Jordan 5 "Minion" which draws on inspiration from the quirky characters of "Despicable Me." The base shoe, as evident by the blue and yellow tongue, was the recently released "Laney."
Despite claiming he is not a sneakerhead, and despite his allegiance to the University of Texas, Kevin Durant took to instagram to display a very exclusive pair of the Air Jordan 5 "Oregon Ducks." The sneakers, which first surfaced over a week ago, have gotten a lot of attention, as do most Oregon Duck Jordan PE's. The green suede looks super clean on the 5s silhouette with the "O" on the tongue, and the mascot on the heel.
One of the fun subplots heading into an NBA season - particularly as the social media generation churns out ubiquitous gossip - is which players are going to be advertising their trade stock as rumors of moves to other teams loom over their season.
Nothing shakes up the Association's landscape like a blockbuster deal, and with so many teams in either "win now" or "lose horribly" modes this year, there's plenty of potential for trades of all shapes, sizes and degrees of intelligence to alter the playing field.
If you can get past the glittery polka-dotted wet suit Russell Westbrook is wearing, you'll get an on-foot look at the Air Jordan 11 "Gamma Blue." Westbrook showed off the kicks on his way to play the Golden State Warriors over the weekend; just one of the many perks of being a Jordan Brand athlete.
The "Gamma Blue" Jordan 11s follow Jordan's pattern of releasing an 11 around Christmas time; and these will officially hit retailers on December 21st.

LeBron James took to instagram after last nights win to show of an exclusive 1 of 1 Nike LeBron 11. The pair, which features an all black upper with floral overlays, reminds us of the LeBronald Palmer design that was wildly popular. A gold Nike swoosh and branding is complimented by black and gold speckled laces, while an icy blue outsole sits beneath it all.
According to Bron Bron's instagram, these were the only pair made, but something tells me similar customs are not far off in the future.
The second installment of "Camp James", Trinidad Jame$ sneaker show, includes a glimpse of the Laney 1, the Oreo 5, and the Infrared 3Lab5. Jame$ also discusses his pursuit of the Doernbecher Air Jordan 4, and his love of the Nike Lunar Flyknit Chukka. In parts 2 and 3, Trinidad Jame$ showcases the yet to be released "Safari" foamposite, and welcomes some guests to talk about the sneaker game.
The Nate Lowman x Converse Chuck Taylor are a 1/21, which allegedly required 10 hours of work to finish just one pair; thus, warranting the $25,000 price tag. Get real Nate! Unless they're filled with diamonds, it doesn't matter if Nate spent 10 years constructing the shoes; 25k is just slightly out of my price range.
On Wednesday night Matt Barnes was ejected from the Clippers game against the Thunder when he shoved Serge Ibaka for tussling with Blake Griffin, and he later sent out a tweet saying, "I'm done standing up for these n****s!"

The SB takes on the 112 theme head-on with it's classic silver, neon, and elephant print design. Neon laces, outsole and branding are electrifying sitting alongside the 3M silver upper. The timeless elephant print handles the ankle collar and wraps around the entire heel, while a black swoosh and midsole complete the "112" colorway.
The Nike Air Yeezy II "Red October" is the most polarizing sneaker in recent memory, spurring all types of "Red October" this and "Red October" that. Finally, we get a look at detailed images of the Nike Air Yeezy II "Red October", a shoe which has been kept largely under wraps.
The Red October Yeezy II is constructed of an aesthetic upper panel with carved, diamond Nike swooshes. The tongue and mid foot strap maintain the classic Air Yeezy II look, with the "II" stamped into the lace lock. Hopefully, these will just release already, so we can all go on living our lives.

Dwight Howard is not the most beloved player in the NBA this year, league-wide he might be the most reviled, and on Wednesday the fans in Philadelphia were giving Dwight the business.
I don't know this for sure, but Philly fans are renowned for being the most "difficult" in the league, and in other sports. A fan on reddit snapped a photo of Howard displaying his frustration with the fans and flipping someone the finger.
It was an all-around tough night for D12 as the Rockets lost to the young Sixers 123-117 in overtime.

Last night the marquee game on the slate was the OKC Thunder visiting the L.A. Clippers, and the game didn't disappoint in the highlights department. OKC controlled the first half, and with only seconds remaining in the second quarter, Serge Ibaka got tangled up with Blake Griffin, and Matt Barnes took exception to Serge pushing away from Blake.
