First, Kanye West left Nike to team up with Adidas in a move that caused a stir in the sneaker community. Then, Kevin Durant nearly ditched The Swoosh for Under Armour. Now, three of Nike's top designers have decided to cut ties with the super brand in favor of Adidas.
You may not be familiar with Marc Dolce, Mark Miner, or Denis Dekovic, but they're responsible for some of your favorite...
Playing hoops with a gold chain around your neck is a douchebag move, but dont tell that to Air Yeezy. Kanye West was recently spotted at an Orange County gym, hooping it up with Kobe Bryant, who was apparently giving 'Ye some tips on his game.
According to TMZ Sports, the Black Mamba gave Kanye some private lessons at the Open Gym courts, so Yeezy doesn't have to try so hard when he's balling...

During his annual OVO Fest in Toronto, the Raptors' Global Ambassador and #1 Spike Lee impersonator on the sidelines, Drake, shouted out Kevin Durant who was in attendance. Drake begged the fans in the crowd to show KD some love, in hopes that he would be floored by the response, and one day sign with the Raptors. But, that all backfired.
Not only was the recruit attempt supremely weak,...
Jay-Z completely changed the culture of Nets basketball when he joined as a minority partner. Albeit, his share was very, very slim, the move to Brooklyn and complete re-branding was a testament to his star power.
Recently, the Raptors have been considering re-branding as well, though they plan to stay in Toronto. The Raptors might be swapping colors for a black/gold to mimic Drake's OVO...

Today was a weird day in the sneaker community. A new Supreme x Nike collab released, but not at their New York shop. Supreme's London and Los Angeles stores had limited pairs of the Nike Air Force 1 Collection, and the rest of us were left to click-battle with the robots. In a surprise to no one, the kicks sold out online almost as fast as they became available, which resulted in a wave of fury...

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.

Chris Bosh gets caught in more corky and unflattering moments than any other player in the NBA. This has resulted in the Miami Heat power forward becoming one of the most "memed" players in the league. Jokes about being a mascot as well as an ostrich and dinosaur have followed Bosh from Toronto to Miami. B
Bosh brings some of it on himself, like the creepy photobombs, totally his fault. To...

The NBA All-Star Game is one of sports’ most exciting sideshows; a relative streetball contest void of defense and filled with highlights, featuring – ideally – the best collection of basketball players on the planet. Unfortunately, through a variety of channels, the game’s selection process has become a mangled bastardization that all-too-frequently sees questionable guys...
2014 still has a ton of dope releases to look forward to, but the leaks we're seeing out of the future in 2015 is worth addressing. We already have learned that the 'Columbia' and 'Oreo' Air Jordan 4s will be making a comeback, and now we have a little more juice pertaining to next year's Jordan brand line up, thanks to some catalog scan images.
French Blue Air Jordan 7s, what appears to be the...
Drake showed up at the Barclay's Center last night for game 6 of the Nets vs. Raptors, and Brooklyn was ready. Not only did the Nets take game 6 to force a game 7 in Toronto on Sunday, but they got in a well deserved jab at the Canadian rapper.
Playing on Drake's habit of flip-flopping which team he likes best, the crew at the Barclay's Center served him with a custom Brooklyn Nets...

Footlocker has listed the "Red October" Yeezy II to release on December 27th, at select House of Hoops locations. There will be blood.
To hell with learning the triangle offense and averaging more than 7 points a game, the Knicks' Iman Shumpert is focused on crushing all the haters with his lyrical genius.
Shump, who has actually been playing well for the Knicks thus far, is tired of Charlamagne Tha God and DJ Envy taking shots at him and his new track '#HowToHate' addresses his issues. Apparently, the Knicks guard, who is...

Late last night at a roundtable preview, Jordan Brand gave some insight into their 2015 lineup, and things are looking up for sneakerheads. The Air Jordan 4 will be coming on strong in '15, with the 'Oreo' and 'Columbia' colorways being remastered on a really, really, ridiculously good looking tumbled leather construction.
Furthermore, the Air Jordan 10 will get some shine with an all-red...
