When he's not handing out Reeboks in Compton, Chris Brown is busy giving his Lamborghini a sneaker inspired paint job. You may recognize the Fighter Jet camouflage from the Foamposite that released earlier this year. The sleek new paint job is made complete with red rims and grill, and definitely will be a head turner. What do you think about this Foamposite colorway on a car? Hot or not?

For those who are unaware of the circumstances, Nick Young's girlfriend, Iggy Azalea, has been in a bit of a social media war with the OG Snoop Dogg/Lion/whatever. It all started when Snoop posted a hilarious picture depicting Iggy with no makeup on, to which the 'Fancy' artist took great offense.

A special edition Nike Zoom Flight 96 was scheduled to release this year, but Allen Iverson has made sure that it won't be happening.

If you haven't already heard, Joel Embiid is an absolute riot on twitter. The rookie center out of Kansas, and current member of the Sixers, has previously tried to recruit LeBron via twitter and is generally a wildcard when it comes to social media.

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.
Drake has to be trolling us all at this point. The Raptors' global ambassador, who had been a fixture in the Nets vs. Raptors series, hit up last night's game 7 wearing a pair of women's Jordans. Drake opted for the "Sunset" Air Jordan 5 for the pivotal game 7 at the Air Canada Centre, which ultimately ended in a Raptors loss- and plenty of Drake memes.
As far as on the court kicks...

That is, of course, assuming you own an authentic pair of the kicks. Because if you're holding some knock-off Yeezys, Kanye will point you on blast and "break your heart."
Not to mention you'll be stuck with a...

The Pistons point guard was eventually the one to take Teyana's v-card though, as she discusses in an interview with the Breakfast Club on Power 105.1. Teyana goes into all sorts of details regarding their six...
Good thing the Lakers and Rockets aren't heading to Brazil for their preseason, or they could be a full scale riot in the arena. The popular '3 Goggles' 3-point celebration commonly used by guys like Nick Young and James Harden, has a totally different meaning in Brazil, and the Miami Heat and Cleveland Cavaliers have been warned not to use the gesture.
As part of the Global Games, the Cavs and...
