The egos and morals of some professional athletes are seriously bloated and twisted, as evidenced during the annual offseason circus of free agency and trade demands we're again cycling through.
Setting off the KD VI model in style, early photos of the "Meteorology" colorway have surfaced. Though by no means a throwback to the "Weatherman" colorway sported by the KD IV model, this new colorway features great detail.
Big Sean's lead single off his sophomore album, Hall Of Fame, is currently getting the visual treatment in Detroit.The video for "Guap" was being shot on Woodward Avenue in Big Sean's hometown, and resulted in the area being shut down for a few hours, reports say.Check out flicks from the set below (via HHNM).Hall Of Fame won't be dropping until early 2013.
Whatup, this week's UA is quite solid. Danny Brown's remix of Rich Hil's "Betcha Hate It" may be my favorite off this list though, but Murs and Fashawn link up, as well as Mikkey Haltsed and Pusha T, plus some previously unreleased Pac Div.
LeBron James had the sneaker community buzzing last night when he laced up a beaming pair of Fairfax LeBron 11s in LA. His sneaker stylings were fitting considering the Heat were in LA, which is where the famous HS basketball program is located. Most notably, LeBron kept the 11s on for the entire game.
Red October, gamma blue, elephant print, camo print; you get the idea. 2013 was filled with a ton of polarizing colorways and designs that even had the celebrities itching to get a pair.
The Jordan "Silver Anniversary" Collection took all of the classic retro Jordans and doused them in a crisp, white colorway. All-white everything.Though some models were released, others like this Air Jordan 13 "Silver Anniversary" edition were strictly samples. This Michael Jordan PE was made in his size 13, and features the icy all-white look.
The "Toro" Air Jordan 6 looks like it's actually going to happen. 2014 marks the 23rd anniversary of the Air Jordan 6, so its reasonable to believe these early images will actually come to fruition. The "Toro" 6 differs from other toro J's in that it goes with a leather upper rather than a suede construction. The completely red 6 features black laces, midsole, and an icy blue outsole.
In his latest rant against Nike, Kanye went bananas on a recent interview with Sway Calloway on "Sway in the Morning" on Sirius XM radio.
Drawing on inspiration from the LeBron X "Championship Pack," District Customs came up with this dope LeBron 9 "Two Time Champs." Using the black/gold LeBron 9 PS Elite as its base, the "Two Time Champs" version sports a sweet graphic print that was seen on the LeBron X low in the "Championship Pack." The custom also features a sole swap to further resemble the LeBron X low.
Every workplace has them: the ones who are always whining, needing things their way, arguing with co-workers, getting suspended, goofing off, over-reacting, and generally acting immaturely. What we call these people might vary - from "Diva" to "That Asshole in Accounting", or something more personal and demeaning - but their childish antics can liven up any work environment.
The Nike LeBron 11 "Gamma Blue" draws inspiration from the idea of tempered steel, which, when heated changes colors. The sneaker is constructed of an upper that changes from a gamma blue to a light armory blue. Along with the gripping gamma blue hue, the swoosh is given a slight gradient detail which really catches the eye, and plays to the tempered steel theme.
More gamma blue! Who would've thought? The Jordan B'Mo pays tribute to Carmelo Anthony who is a Baltimore native. This B'Mo consists of a completely gamma blue upper with white accents and branding, while black works the inner lining and eyelets.
Swizz Beatz' sneaker style is rubbing off on Alicia Keys. He took to instagram to post a photo of his girls 1-of-1 "Python" Reebok Pumps.No word on if these were a custom job, or if they came straight out of the Reebok lab with the help of Swizzy, but they definitely will not be duplicated. Cop or Not?
Grizzlies Teammates Dress As "White Men Can't Jump" Characters For Halloween Nov 1, 2013 at 12:15pm 2,997 Views
This past weekend is when most NBA players dressed up for Halloween as the season hadn't started yet, and we saw some solid costumes from the Thunder, and the Spurs, but Jon Leuer and Quincy Pondexter may have stolen the show. The two dressed up as Billy Hoyle (Leuer), and Sidney Deane (Pondexter) from the classic basketball flick "White Men Can't Jump" for Halloween.
Prior to his debut in a Knicks uniform, Metta World Peace decided to touch base with his New York roots and ride the subway to Madison Square Garden. Growing up in Queensbridge, where his brother still lives, Metta (or Ron Artest, as he was known then) took the F train frequently, and he had not taken it in a long time so he felt prior to his first Knicks game would be a good chance.
Usher Shows Off Dope Jordan 11 "Pantone" Signed For His Birthday Oct 31, 2013 at 11:24am 2,374 Views
Usher just won instagram by showing off his latest birthday gift. Jordan Brand's Mark Smith delivered this extremely exclusive pair of Air Jordan 11 "Pantone" to Usher as a birthday gift. Furthering the exclusivity of these kicks, they were signed by legendary designer Tinker Hatfield. Who knew he was such a big Usher fan?
Lamar Odom was interviewed by a TMZ reporter and says that his relationship with Khloe is fine, and that he was invited to Kanye West's proposal to Kim Kardashian. We've gone over the reports countless times before, so I won't rehash them all, but as you know there are various reports from various sources claiming that Lamar is struggling with drug abuse, and that his relationship with his wife i
Watching a Lakers pre-season game, Tracy McGrady tweets that he feels sorry for Kobe Bryant when he returns. Kobe and McGrady have both praised each other recently, saying how difficult the other was to guard as they were the two elite wing players in the early 2000s. Now that T-Mac is retired he has time to do things like watch NBA pre-season action.
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.
Want to see the defending champion, Miami Heat take on the Los Angeles Lakers this season in L.A.'s sole visit to American Airlines Arena? Well you better start playing the lottery, or working on a high profit yielding scam if you want to cop tickets.
With four league MVPs, four NBA Finals appearances, two straight titles along with two Finals MVPs, LeBron James is the consensus "best player on the planet." Not satisfied with just being the greatest currently, LeBron has opened up about striving to be the greatest to ever play the game.
For the first time since the rumors started surfacing about his drug abuse, Lamar Odom speaks out. Following reports of his substance abuse, Odom was booked on a DUI, and then apparently signed up for rehab before leaving after less than 24 hours.
Hip hop and basketball have an undeniably strong cultural connection; their influence on each other is greater than any inter-music/sport relationship, and this website's existence is a testament. Of course, when two realms are so closely linked, the inclination to cross-over seems more natural, and NBA players like to think they can rap even more than rappers like to think they can ball.
Over the past few months we have seen leaked images of many pairs of Jordan "Bel-Air" sneakers. These shoes of course taking inspiration from the TV show, Fresh Prince of Bel-air, where Will Smith constantly wore Jordan sneakers. Click through the slides to see all of the Bel-Air sneakers so you can plan for their releases in October.
