As I'm sure you're fully aware of by now, LeBron James is the cover athlete for the wildly popular NBA 2K14. In case his son had somehow not noticed, LeBron made it pretty obvious to him on his 9th birthday. Sunday was LeBron James Jr's birthday, and to commemorate it, King James had an Xbox shaped cake made, and atop the cake version of the gaming system was a cake version of NBA 2K14.
With the release of NBA 2K14 and LeBron James on the cover, the running theme has been "can LeBron become the greatest ever?" In promotion of the game, Michael Jordan was interviewed and asked about playing one-on-one against some of the greatest NBA players of all time such as Jerry West, Elgin Baylor, Kobe Bryant, and the game's cover athlete LeBron James.
While Dwyane Wade has left Jordan Brand for Li-Ning, sneaker customizer Sole-On-Canvas imagines what his Player-Edition Jordan Brand sneakers could have looked like. Using the fire red Jordan 5 as a base, he adds custom "3" stitching near the heel and Miami Heat coloring on the midsole and tongue. A solid custom effort for sure, would you cop this pair if it was an official Jordan Brand release?

The ongoing Lamar Odom saga continues, as he was spotted by TMZ reporters as he was leaving a restaurant and he said he does not have a drug problem.This comes after LO caught a DUI and then apparently checked himself into rehab, and then left rehab only a day later. Reports were that his family, most notably his wife Khloe Kardashian, was worried about him. Asked by the reporters if he has a
We saw some wacky outfits last night at the VMAs, but none (well, maybe Miley Cyrus') top Riff Raff and 2 Chainz choices. Between snakeskin pants, pink shoes, and all over patterns head to toe, its hard to pick a winner for who wore it worst.Click through to see both outfits, and decide using our "cop or not" rating.
We have not seen a new Melo M9 released in a while, but Jordan is back at it with a new Black/Metallic Gold/Gym Red colorway. This M9 may be one of the last featured in the M9 collection before the M10 is released. The shoe features pink gym red on most of the toe box that slowly fades to black. Yellow laces and a yellow outsole finish things off.

Much is already being made for the upcoming free agent crop in the summer of 2014 with wild rumors circulating of Carmelo Anthony and LeBron James teaming up in Los Angeles. While LeBron James seems content in Miami after three straight Finals appearances and back-to-back championships, Melo and the Knicks are not favored to even come out of the East with many ranking them as low as the fifth be
The Nike Foamposite has taken some serious liberties in terms of printing on the upper, and these Marijuana leaf Foamposites by Gourmet Kickz are no exception. Suitably nicknames the '420s' these weed inspired Foams feature a blend of colors you might find on a psychedelic poster.
Ron Artest was involved in the most nefarious brawl in league history at the Malice At The Palace, but it was after he was ejected from a game in a playoff series in 2011 that he wanted to start anew, and changed his name legally to Metta World Peace.Recently, Metta was amnestied by the Lakers and then picked up by his hometown New York Knicks. Wanting to have yet another fresh start, World Peac
On Friday we posted a photo of Dwyane Wade's ex wife in the streets of Chicago holding a sign that read "NBA Miami Heat Star Mother Of His Children Out On The Streets," and now we get more info about why Siovaughn Funches-Wade was "protesting." It all stems from the court case between the two, as we reported earlier had sued the Heat star, and then that lawsuit was removed.

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."
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!" Barnes was subsequently fined $25,000 by the league for shoving Ibaka, and for using profanity in his tweet.
