The hip-hop world and the sneaker community have a long withstanding relationship that goes way beyond OVO Jordans. In fact, sneakers have often incorporated a rapper, group, or album on the sneaker itself, to commemorate a milestone or release.
Rumors are swirling that this new pair of Air Jordan 11s, which looks like a cross between the 'Bred' and 'Space Jam' colorways, will be Jordan Brand's holiday release at the end of this year. The kicks are said to be a tribute to the Chicago Bulls' epic 1995-96 season in which they won an NBA record 72 games en route to a 72-10 regular season record and an NBA championship.
The NBA’s television market has expanded exponentially over the past few decades. The soon-to-have-the-championship-trophy-named-after-him David Stern took American pro basketball from tape-delayed afterthought to Global media icon over his 30-year tenure. As such, most of the game’s fans watch along with an ever-growing number of TV commentators.
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.
With barely a week gone by in this 2014-15 NBA season, us hardcourt junkies are just getting our feet wet with what’s sure to be compelling campaign. Even in the season’s early stages, we’re beginning to see trends developing, and several teams bursting out of the gate with impressive starts. Here’s a breakdown of the teams who have risen to the occasion the most thus far:
Shaquille O'Neal celebrated his 42nd birthday on March 6th. Arguably the most dominating big man of all-time, Shaq produced some of the most incredible dunks throughout his 19 seasons in the league.

If you're in the market for some Kanye West x Adidas Originals gear we have some good news and some bad news. The good news is that the Yeezy Boost Low will be cheaper than the $350 high-top version, and will retail for roughly $210. That's it for the good news.Entry level clothing goods from Kanye West's Yeezy Season 1, such as sweatshirts and hoodies, will be going for around $430.
When you think of the most expensive homes in the NBA, you'll probably assume Kobe Bryant, or LeBron James ranks #1. However, it's another Heat star who holds that title. Chris Bosh, and his $12.3M Florida estate, is tops in the NBA, ahead of Kobe Bryant. Who's third on the list you ask? Oh, just Chris Bosh again; his California mansion though.
Basketball's international appeal is quickly escalating; as a relatively new sport, it has rode the recent wave of globalization to stretch its popularity across the map. The influx of international talent in the NBA over the past decade-plus has been a solid indication, as distant nations cultivated a love for the game and developed serious skills.A record 101 international players were on ope
So long LeBron 11, we hardly knew ya. LeBron James laced up the Nike Zoom Soldier 7 more often than not last year, and his 11th signature sneaker was worn more by the Morris twins than LeBron himself. The fit wasn't right, and although The Swoosh tried to accommodate changes on the fly, the LeBron 11 was just destined for failure from the jump.
The Toronto Raptors recently hosted Drake night and fans in attendance received a limited edition Raptors x OVO t-shirt. That might be cool if you're into played-out gimmicks, but if you're into watching hoops and possibly getting laid afterward, or perhaps during a tv timeout... Atlanta is the place to be.
Nike and Kevin Durant will officially be unveiling the Nike KD7 today, June 25th at 12 pm. Although we've already caught a glimpse of the KD7, Nike will give us a more in-depth look at Durant's 7th signature, along with interviews discussing the latest in the KD line.

Kanye West went on The Ellen Show today to talk about a number of topics, including his departure from Nike and his new role with Adidas.
