In all seriousness, Jay-Z will be a constant inspiration to me for the rest of my life. He never runs out of ways to “open the market up.” Smarten up.
I’m not even sure what his effect on the game will be — Considering there ARE game designers who created the game. Either way it’s another good look for the big homie. And yes, that Michael Jordan on the narration.
With a full season under his belt ,Former Duke point guard and NBA Rookie Of The Year Kyrie Irving is wasting no time making his presence felt amongst the league veterans. Namely, the leagues most decorated player, Kobe Bryant. After a bit of trash talking Kobe and Kyrie shake on a bet to play one on one for $50,000.
Who you got?
Judging from the Spurs lineup, I’d venture to say that not to many of Coach Pop’s players can recite Mobb Deep’s “Shook Ones” word for word. Either way, this commercial is dope and further cements the relationship between hip hop and the NBA.
It’s October 2, 2011 and still no NBA season start date in sight. The lockout is reaching the point of no return and so are the talks between players and owners. So much so that, according to ESPN’s Rick Bucher’s sources, Dewayne Wade and NBA commissioner David Stern got into verbal heated bout during a meeting on Friday.
Apparently Stern was pointing fingers towards the players while speaking when Wade replied “You’re not pointing your finger at me. I’m not your child.”
Today, David Stern had the following to say:
“I would guess that neither of us remember, but there was a heated exchange of some kind,” Stern told reporters at a New York hotel. “I feel passionately about the system that we have and what it has delivered and what it should continue to deliver for the players and the owners. And he feels passionately too.
“And I think that if anyone should step up on that, it’s my job on behalf of the owners to make the points that need to be made.”
Yo, this is interesting shit. See, the difference between the NBA lockout and the NFL lockout is player celebrity. While the NFL is our country’s most popular sport, the NBA has the most popular players. They don’t wear helmets and the biggest stars i.e. Lebron,Kobe, D. Wade are worldwide stars.
How much leverage that gives them in these labor talks is yet to be seen. But definitely worth noting.
Last night in Baltimore, the NBA’s biggest stars got together and put on a show in front of a packed house at Morgan State University’s Field house. Kevin Durant, who’s been lighting up the court all summer scored 59 points for the Goodman League in their loss to the Carmelo League. Chris Paul was also a participant.
If there is a 2011/2012 season, Durant will be the MVP. Run tell dat.
Well, maybe he doesn’t hate the Black Mamba. But this T-Shirt says a lot. Under Armor I’m watching you, lol.
I really wanted to wait until some better video came out of this but I couldn’t wait. KD scored 66 points and ended the game with multiple 3’s in a row. But is he Harlem shaking tho?
Kobe talks shit like he’s 18. That’s why he’s 5 rings.
Not the biggest Adidas fan, but if they help you do any of the moves contained in the above video they’re worth checking out.
All you young marketing majors out there can learn a ton from Nike’s simple formula: let the star wear a product he feels comfortable with, then start selling it.
Kevin Durant has worn an interesting looking back pack to the majority of his post-game press conferences during the 2011 NBA Playoffs. After seeing how much attention the bag has gotten, Nike has decided to add the bag to their KD III line.
