    Nike Unveils New Oregon Pioneer Uniforms (Pics)

    Because Oregon is the darling of nearby juggernaut Nike, the Ducks football team gets new uniforms roughly once per game. So many that it’s hard to keep track, and I have NO idea what Oregon’s actual, regular home team uniforms look like anymore. Plugging away at new, weirded kits for the team, Nike just unveiled […]

    One of the big advantages the NBA holds over other North American sports leagues is that the stuff the guys wear out on the court makes such an easy transition to street fashion. Hockey players might wear the same skates Sidney Crosby wears, baseball players might wear the same cleats Mike Trout wears, and football […]

    Of Course Kevin Durant Still Thinks He’s The Best in the NBA (Video)

    After an MVP 2013-14 campaign, Kevin Durant and the Thunder suffered a frustrating turn of events as the star player managed to get only 27 games in before falling victim to a fractured foot. Durant was in Spain doing the requisite Nike goodwill trip when he spoke to the press about the upcoming season, and […]

    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 […]

    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

    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

    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:

    These LEGO Jordans Look Like a Disaster Waiting to Happen (Pics)

    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 […]
