Toronto has been doing it differently than any other team this post-season. They have thousands of fans gathered outside of the arena during the game, they've embraced their Canadian pride with their "We The North" slogan, and have handed out lint rollers to the fans. Not thundersticks.
Not long ago, 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.

Kevin Durant Calls The Game A Liar, Says He Never Bet $20K; Game Responds Jun 11, 2014 at 03:41pm 25,662 Views
A few days ago Los Angeles' rapper The Game posted a video on instagram of himself swishing a three in front of a crowd that included Kevin Durant, DeMar DeRozan, James Harden, and Drake. Game claimed that Durant bet the rapper $20,000 that he couldn't swish an NBA three, which he did.
Kevin Durant's seventh signature model, the Nike KD7, was officially unveiled the other day courtesy of Ahmad Rashad, Durant, and Nike Basketball Design Director Leo Chang. The live event had some of the sneaker community thirsting for more images, while others had no clue the kicks even dropped.
Joining the 'Columbia' Air Jordan 4 in 2015 will be the 'Oreo,' in what figures to be one of the most anticipated releases of the new year. We've still got a lot of life left in 2014, with a ton of great releases, but it's hard not to feel the hype for the iconic Jordan 4.
By now, most of you know that Kevin Durant will grace the cover of NBA 2K15, with Pharrell Williams handling the musical stylings. Last year, LeBron curated the entire playlist and in 2012 it was Jay-Z who provided the tunes for NBA 2K.

NBA preseason is in full swing and there's no happier person than the basketball fan who also has an affinity for sneakers. A sweet pair of kicks can be the icing on the cake of a posterizing dunk, ankle breaking crossover, or game winning shot. In the opening games we saw LeBron wear multiple sneakers, though no sign of his much anticipated signature shoe the LeBron 11.
With performances from Miguel, Wiz Khalifa, Rihanna, Alicia Keys, an ensemble tribute to Bob Marley and Justin Timberlake's return to the Grammy stage, the night saw wins from Frank Ocean, Drake, Kanye West, Jay-Z, Lecrae, Usher and more. Check out some highlight photos from the 55th Annual Grammy Awards, including red carpet, floor, on-stage and performance pics below.
Gilbert Arenas' baby mama, Laura Govan, had a big birthday blowout this past weekend. The event was thrown by Gil and included notable guests such as Chris Paul, Matt Barnes and his new wife, Gloria (who is Govan's sister), Nick Young, and Tank.
The always candid Metta World Peace has returned home to New York to play for the Knicks this season, and talking about a myriad of MWP topics, he had a Q&A with the New York Post. In it he talks about the time he broke Michael Jordan's ribs during a pickup game. It wasn't malicious, as he was just trying to get the ball.
The league's MVP, and NBA 2K15 cover boy, Kevin Durant turns 26 years young today. The Oklahoma City Thunder's All-Star forward recently celebrated his birthday at Nike headquarters in Beaverton, Oregon after signing a mega-deal to stay with The Swoosh.
Nike unveiled its new plan to put an end to the bot-era today. Hallelujah. The swoosh added an extra step at the checkout process, which makes the buyer select a specific image amongst a variety of pictures. The system should ensure that we no longer experience those dreadful instant sell-outs, and will actually have a puncher's chance at picking up a new pair of kicks.
From Shaquille O' Neal to Allen Iverson, and onto Ron Ar...Metta World Peace the NBA has been home to many aspiring rappers - some rap ventures have been more successful than others. The new crop of NBA players is full of budding emcess, some good and others, well you know.
The wait for Kanye West's Adidas collab is almost over.
The Air Jordan 1 Mid in Black/Gym Red/Metallic Gold is available now at select Jordan accounts including Caliroots for $150. The upper is predominately constructed of a black tumbled leather with metallic gold donning the toe box, swoosh, and ankle collar. Red helps the sneaker pop as it outlines the swoosh, handles the branding, and peaks out from underneath the white midsole.
Sacramento Kings big man, DeMarcus Cousins, is releasing an album that will feature Rick Ross, Chance The Rapper, Chase N. Cashe and Mally Mall. "Boogie Smooth" as he calls himself in the music circuit, showcases his R&B flow on his singles "Emotional" and "Misunderstood," which are fitting titles for anybody who's ever seen him play.
The Air Jordan 1 ’94 “Powder Blue” is scheduled to release February 8th, for $130. The Air Jordan 1 x Air Jordan 10 mashup features the popular "Powder Blue" color scheme alongside a white tumbled leather. Black handles the midsole, tongue and jumpman, and mixes with the powder blue for the iconic checkered inner lining.
Sneakerheads are going to be blowing the rent on Jordan Brand's 2015 lineup.
We made it. The NFL season is officially set to kick-off tonight, as the defending champion Seattle Seahawks will take on the Green Bay Packers. Seahawks' safety Earl Thomas is already prepping which cleats he will wear in tonights game; a high-top or low-top version of his Air Jordan 6 PE.
The King doesn't clean up his act for anybody, including the Duke and Dutchess of Cambridge. The royal couple was in attendance at the Barclay's Center last night to witness LeBron James in action, and posed with the self proclaimed king after the game... immediately after the game.
Los Angeles Clippers' All-Star forward, Blake Griffin, will be out of the lineup indefinitely due to a staph infection in his elbow. Griffin, who was named as a starter on the Western Conference All-Stat team, will therefore be unable to compete in next weekend's All Star Game at Madison Square Garden.
BIG time Kentucky Wildcats basketball fan, Drake, was on hand in Arlington last night for the National Championship game. His beloved Big Blue Nation suffered a loss to UConn, so he did what any loyal fan would do. Take pictures with the opposing team's coach. That's his schtick, someone wins a championship and he's right by their side. Trophies.
