Knicks superfan Spike Lee is known for his court side antics as well as his shoe game. In honor of the 2013 Playoffs, Lee had a custom pair of Cole Haan Lunargrand’s made. They feature an orange upper with jersey mesh print on the toe and are finished off with a Knicks blue Lunar midsole. Other notable details include a custom “SL” logo on the heel, an old school Knicks logo on the right insole, and a pixelated Mars Blackmon logo on the left insole. I never knew orange dress shoes could look so cool.
This is definitely a book I need for the coffee table. I can’t even imagine the greatness that this book is filled with. Right now it’s just available for pre-order, look for it to release on May 21st.
I first saw this on Sportscenter, and was kind of shocked at Durant’s blatant rip-off from when LeBron tackled that one fan. Then, I watched this, and got the whole story. Apparently the dude asked Durant to tackle him. The craziest thing about the video is the fact that was a $20,000 shot.
I don’t know why it took me so long to realize how much great material is on the NBA YouTube channel. They are constantly updating it, and a lot of it is awesome stuff. Here’s a video they put together for some of the best bloopers during the month of February.
I didn’t watch the Clippers game last night, but at one point I checked my Twitter, and there was about 50 people talking about the DeAndre Jordan dunk. Someone actually changed Brandon Knight’s Wikipedia page to say he died last night. You can see an image of that after the jump.
Lob City continues to terrorize the NBA when it comes to ridiculous dunks. This time around Jamal Crawford serves up a between-the-legs pass to Blake Griffin, who does what he does, and just throws it down emphatically.
It took me a little while, but I have compiled some of Craig Sager’s best, or possibly his worst outfits, depending on your own personal opinion. He seems to catch a lot of flack, and it’s grown worse recently. I dig what he’s got going on though, he’s not afraid to step out of the box, and I can appreciate that.
In case you missed the NBA Slam Dunk Contest, or just didn’t care, here’s a video recapping Terrence’s dunks. There happens to be a nice little twist though. Using a Phantom camera, they put all of his dunks in super sl0w-mo, which I think helps you appreciate the skill it takes to pull some of these off.
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.
