  • James Harden Joins Adidas For $200-Million

    James Harden Joins Adidas For $200-Million

    Goodbye Nike.  Hello Adidas. Houston Rockets guard James Harden has ditched the swoosh for the three stripes after Adidas offered the all-star a 13-year, $200 million deal that Nike refused to match. The partnership between Harden and Adidas does not begin until October 1, so don’t expect to see him in any of the company’s […]

    Blake Griffin Takes on Marvin the Martian in an New Nike Ad (Video)

    Back in the early-mid 90s, the Air Jordan brand took a pretty weird departure (likely around the time of Space Jam) in which it seemed all of Michael Jordan‘s commercials involved Looney Toons and the lamentable “Hare Jordan.” It wasn’t the finest hour in the history of the Jordan brand. It now looks like it […]

    LeBron May Have Given a Sneak Peak of the Nike LeBron 13s (Pic)

    LeBron James was wearing some new, unfamiliar shoes on the court at a Nike Basketball Academy event. Normally, that wouldn’t be a big deal, but because the celebrity in question is LeBron James, and the curious parties are sneakerheads, this is a VERY big deal. You see, the word finding its way through the Internet […]

  • Warriors Fan Creates Hilarious Cleveland Nike Ad Parody

    Warriors Fan Creates Hilarious Cleveland Nike Ad Parody

    Once Cleveland was bounced from an exhausting NBA Finals by the Warriors, Nike sidled up to their golden boy, LeBron James, and offered up this little poem/ad/whatever: New Nike LeBron ad pic.twitter.com/p5Of0avA1u — Darren Rovell (@darrenrovell) June 21, 2015 It was pretty weird, and seemed to slam Cleveland as much as praise them. However, a […]

  • Nike Made an Ad About Cleveland’s NBA Finals Loss

    Nike Made an Ad About Cleveland’s NBA Finals Loss

    Now that the players and fans of the Cleveland Cavaliers have had a week or so to lick their wounds and recover from an exhausting NBA Finals, Nike, the longtime brand of LeBron James, has issued an ad based on Cleveland’s loss. It’s kind of weird, because it’s not congratulatory for their effort, and it […]

    Nike Lands 8-Year NBA Uniform Deal Starting in 2017

    Back in March, Adidas announced that they would not seek to extend the 11-year NBA uniform deal they signed back in 2006. At the time they did not give a specific reason why. However, the rumor was that people in the NBA were not happy with Adidas because they spent too much time and energy […]

    Who needs a shoe to shoot?  Not Andre Iguodala, who nailed this three-pointer after losing his Nike midway through the fourth quarter of a tight Game One battle between the Cavs and Warriors. Here is it, via Valeria Vine Star:

    If you thought sneakerheads freak out when you step on the top of their shoe, just wait until they accidentally kick the curb and are forced to pick up thousands of shards of their shoes. Ok, so that actually sounds pretty funny. And it’s a realistic issue too, should these concept LEGO Jordans ever get […]

    With the 2015 edition of The Masters set to kick off at Augusta National Golf Club on Thursday, now seems like the perfect time for Nike to start rolling out their Rory McIlroy commercials. And that’s exactly what they are doing, beginning with this one which honors Nike’s other big name golfer, Tiger Woods. The commercial […]

    You probably won’t watch the Pro Bowl on Sunday because, well, why would you?  It’s probably the most meaningless, uninspiring game in all of sports.  So you’re likely better off spending that three hours of your life doing anything other than watching the Pro Bowl’s sixth alternate* quarterback, Joe Flacco, air it out against the game’s seventh […]

    This Coin Flip Photo From Nike is a Lie (Pic)

    Nike Tweeted out this Coin Flip Photo from tonight’s College Football Championship Game between Ohio State and Oregon: This isn’t do-or-die. It’s do or don’t. You have to live with it or live without it. #justdoit pic.twitter.com/EbnRzUWYOD — Nike (@Nike) January 13, 2015 Some people, like ESPN’s Don Van Natta Jr., thought it was real. […]

  • 2015 National Championship Uniforms for Ohio State and Oregon Suck (Pics)

    2015 National Championship Uniforms for Ohio State and Oregon Suck (Pics)

    I think I speak for most when I say the following: I really hope the 2015 National Championship Game doesn’t end up being as unimpressive as the 2015 National Championship uniforms.  If it is, it’ll be a disappointing way to end what has been an otherwise impressive inaugural season for the College Football Playoff. Nike […]
