Piggy-backing off of all the hoops hoopla surrounding All-Star Weekend, Dwyane Wade’s partnership with Chinese sportswear apparel company, Li Ning, is finally getting its anticipated marketing push. Many are curious to see how this unpredictable partnership pans out — especially after Wade left the cushiony certainty of sales offered by his previous partner: Jordan Brand.
In celebration of Michael Jordan’s 50th birthday, Sports Illustrated placed the sports icon on its February 18th cover for the 50th time. Yes, you read that right. This is MJ’s 50th Sports Illustrated cover. Unfortunately Jordan refused to be interviewed by the magazine for this issue but it’s still a piece for sports memorabilia I would love to own, along with his 49 other covers. This will be hitting news stands soon.

I wasn’t really feeling the D Rose 3 by adidas until I saw this colorway. These electric yellow kicks have been dubbed the “Chicago Fire.” The upper is made of rubberized, heavy-duty synthetics reminiscent of a firefighter’s turnout coat. The stripes on the back are reflective, while the black SPRINTFRAME was inspired by fire boots. The inside of the left tongue features the cross symbol of firefighters with the D Rose logo in the middle, and the right shoe features Rose’s lasered signature.
Here is a look at some upcoming LeBron X releases. In total, 3 new colorways will be released this month including Blue Diamond, Jade, and Pressure. The Jade colorway is already in stores and the others will be arriving shortly.

Now this is a dope collector’s item. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a basketball with a crazy print like this. Leopard print happens to be my favorite, so if anyone wants to grab this for me, I would definitely appreciate it. Look for it to release some time in the next couple weeks.
