Representatives of the Jordan Brand spoke with the Daily News on the issue of violence surrounding the Air Jordan releases. They...
The Air Jordan 3 "Katrina" will reportedly hit retailers on March 8th, 2014. This colorway was originally auctioned off on EBay to raise money for the victims of Hurricane Katrina.
The latest addition to the plethora of Jordan 3s slated to drop in 2014 features white tumbled leather throughout the upper. It's reminiscent of the white/cement 3 with its use of the cement print in all the...

Dwyane Wade and a mystery woman whom he had spent time with while on break with now fiancé, Gabrielle Union, had a baby boy. It's not as juicy as it seems though. Gabrielle knew of the pregnancy before their engagement, and is ok with it. D-Wade is one lucky guy.
Apparently, Wade has known the mother of his youngest boy for many years now. D-Wade has always been a devout father, taking...
Today, December 30th, marks the date of birth of the best player in the NBA today. LeBron James is 29 years old and is on his 11th signature sneaker with Nike.

Chris Bosh hit a game winning 3 pointer against the Blazers with 0.5 left on the clock to cap a 37 point night. His reward? A nice little beating by his teammates with some serious blows coming from Beasley and LeBron James.

For all the Taxis, Gamma Blue 11s, and Laneys comes a ton of atrocious, volatile kicks that make us wonder how they ever made it to retail. Each person has their own preferences, but there are always a bunch of black sheep that stand out from the crowd as being downright ugly. Thats why we're here today; to expose the most barbaric, rotten, and lousy kicks of 2013.
The all black, carbon fiber Nike Air Flightposite looks to be making a return in 2014. The sleek, all black look is a nice change of pace from the crazy and vibrant colorways we've previously seen getting retro'd.
The iconic zipper shroud is held down by carbon fiber overlays which really make the black upper stand out. White swooshes complete the look on what could be the...
Thunder guard Russell Westbrook will be sidelined through the All-Star break after undergoing knee surgery today. Swelling in Westbrook's right knee warranted arthroscopic surgery on the same knee which he tore his lateral meniscus just last year.
This is obviously disappointing news for the Thunder who currently sit at 2nd place in the Western Conference with a 23-5 record. Westbrook was...

The Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG "Bred" will officially hit retailers on December 28th. The OG release is one of the most anticipated drops of 2013. The iconic sneaker is dear to those sneakerheads who appreciate the history of the shoe, which mimics the exact model Jordan wore.
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...
