The days of slowing it down and pounding the ball inside are all but gone. Dominant bigs have been replaced by speedy, ultra-talented guards half their size. Coaches are trotting out smaller and smaller lineups in an attempt to match up. We may have more elite point guards in the league now than ever before, which made compiling this list challenging.
Watching a Lakers pre-season game, Tracy McGrady tweets that he feels sorry for Kobe Bryant when he returns.

When hip-hop began, samples were all that DJs and producers had to construct instrumental tracks with. They'd dig through crates of vinyl trying to find isolated drum breaks, melodies or vocals that they could repurpose for use in hip-hop music. Today, sampling has become less common, but a choice sample can still push a track from lukewarm to hot faster than you can say "uh-huh honey".
We're in midst of a major shift in hip-hop right now, where rappers are taking matters into their own hands. Major labels like Interscope, Def Jam, and Atlantic Records seem to be having less control over their artists. The tide is changing, and the result is a mainly positive one. Fans are receiving music how they want, when they want, from their favorite artists without the major-label hassle.
Sekure D is responsible for the Air Jordan 5 "Minion" which draws on inspiration from the quirky characters of "Despicable Me."

The power forward position has become increasingly versatile in recent years. Typically a position for bruising board-crashers, fours are now more apt to step out and knock down midrange and three point shots. When looking at the impact of big forwards around the league many of them affect the game in varying ways.
One of the most talented sneaker custom artists in the game right now is Mache, and I believe Lebron James would agree. The king received an Ironman inspired custom of his signature shoe this year from him and was recently spotted wearing them during practice. It looks like Mache has not forgotten about Tony Stark quite yet as we have now have a look at his new "Ironman" customs. This time a

Each year, 29 teams fall short of the ultimate goal of an NBA championship. Fans of the franchises that come up short can take solace in their team's performance if they exceed expectations or if a player has a breakout year.

Russell Westbrook surprised us by returning to action this past Sunday as he was expected to miss at least two weeks.
