You mentioned in our last interview regarding the first shoe that Paul wasn*t too familiar with Nike cushioning, that he wouldn*t be able to tell the difference between Zoom and Lunar. With one full process under his belt, has he matured as a co-designer?He definitely learned from the process with the PG1 and even with the 2. He*s more in tune with what*s going on with his shoe. Before he wasn*t really able to articulate about it, but now he*ll be able to tell you what*s exactly going on in the shoe. Honestly, he*s still learning about the design process, but he has a better grasp on technology and those types of things.Paul has always been super-welcoming and very easy to get along with. There was never any awkwardness or anything. He*s just super chill 每 he comes from a small town called Palmdale and he*s used to growing up laid back, and that*s just the kind of guy he is. We*re closer, and I know more about what he*s thinking now, which is good. From that standpoint, he knows me a little better, I know him a little better, and that*ll continue to develop as it goes.

You could argue a few of those teams are currently utilizing legitimate strategies. Both the Braves and White Sox have tanked recently, but did so in order to build excellent farm systems. Things do look promising for both clubs moving forward. They*ve taken the Houston Astros-Chicago Cubs path to contention.?To put the Epic React to the test, Nike invited select media/influencers/bloggers to a special product unveiling in NYC with an obstacle course. A foam pit with soft cubes, a mini-relay with pillars made of tires, a wind tunnel with feathers, and a bouncy platform to test hops were stationed 每 all with the purpose of trial-ing the new running shoe in four different environments of mobility. To give the shoes a more real-world test, I walked back from the event space to the office; throughout the 1.2 miles the shoes produced a forward-propelling effect 每 the so-called ※energy return§ aspect 每 that kept me light on my toes. REACT foam is much softer than traditional EVA foam, so Nike had to make the sole thicker to prevent it from flattening over time 每 a common problem with other foam-based cushioning units in the market today. Despite its thickness, the support on the Foam is zonal so there is not ※boat§-ish feel to them. As a casual everyday shoe, the Epic React is definitely recommended.. Gronkowski, the giant tight end who is as vital as anyone not called Tom Brady to the Patriots* offense, was listed as ※Concussed§ on the Patriots* first injury report of the week late on Wednesday..Jae has been playing good the last few games and it has nothing to do with Jae," Lue said. "He's been great. He's all about the right things. He's all about the team."You hate to make these changes. Not saying it's permanent, but he's about the team. Went and talked to him this morning and he said, 'Whatever is best for the team. I'm all in.' It was a great talk with him."Crowder has underperformed this season -- his first with the Cavs. Traded by Boston along with Thomas, Ante Zizic and two draft picks for Kyrie Irving, Crowder's scoring, shooting, rebounding and defensive numbers are all down from a year ago.

Stay tuned to Sneaker News for any updated release details and actual images as the become available.On the 12th, the Nike Shox made its return to shelves for the first time in the long time, as the piston-like columns that give it its signature look are ready to excite sneakerheads once again. Given the Shox Gravity monicker, the newly engineered model is ready to be rolled out in a second colorway that sports a primarily black construction with a quick hit of green surrounding the aforementioned columns on its midsole. Its newly designed lacing system trends in the direction that has become popular in the industry that grants its wearer easy slip-on access. While there is currently no specific timetable for release, you can expect this New Shox Gravity to touch down in the Spring..McMahon was asked if he*d consider Manziel, Colin Kaepernick or Tim Tebow, a trio of famous quarterback who are all out of football work. When you read the answer, remember that Tebow and Kaepernick have never been arrested for anything.※When I say the quality of human being is very important, and just as important as the quality of player, what I mean by that is, you want someone who doesn*t have any criminality whatsoever associated with them,§ McMahon said. ※In the XFL even if you have a DUI you will not play in the XFL. That would probably eliminate some of them, not all of them. If Tim Tebow wants to play, he could very well play.§.

In yesterday*s pregame shoot-around before the Cavaliers went toe-to-toe with the San Antonio Spurs, Derrick Rose was seen wearing the ninth model of his signature shoe line with adidas 每 the D Rose 9. The most significant change on the upcoming Derrick Rose signature shoe is that it no longer features BOOST, a cushioning unit that was a mainstay with the embattled former MVP*s signature shoes since the debut of the D Rose 5. It is likely that the Three Stripes chose to design this sneaker without its patented foam technology in order to lower the price-point as a response to the falling demand and market for Rose*s sneakers. Is is likely that Derrick Rose*s upcoming shoes will feature BOUNCE technology, which is currently featured in brand-mate Damian Lillard*s signature shoe, the Dame 4, so it*s possible that the MSRP of the upcoming D Rose 9 will be closer to 5 than the current 0 MSRP of the D Rose 8. Earlier photos of the ninth shoe revealed ADIWEAR, which is likely a foam-based cushioning.. As long as everyone abides by the rules as laid down,§ McMahon said, an obvious reference to everyone standing for the anthem.If the XFL overlooks Manziel*s past, let*s be honest: Manziel would be a great get for the new football league. He*s a former first-round pick and his fame grew to a point where he was one of the buzziest names in the entire NFL, though his play on the field rarely rose to that level. His fame came from some notoriety, but it*s not like that hasn*t been in the McMahon*s WWE playbook..Jordan Brand*s 2018 Black History Month celebration will be centered around the colors of the Pan-African Flag.

One anchoring visual theme will be the blooming red and white flower embroidery seen on the heels of this Air Jordan 6 Retro as well as the Nike Kyrie 4 that was previewed earlier this week. Fireworks will also serve as an enticing graphic as well, while the black, gold, and red colorway speaks to the traditional colors of the holiday.

Just a few weeks after agreeing to be the new associate head coach and defensive line coach for the Aggies, Montgomery decided to return to Green Bay to serve as Mike McCarthy*s defensive line coach with the Packers.

Same as it ever was. When the 2018 NASCAR Media Tour started, no one had a clue what topic would emerge to dominate the annual handful of days stock car racing sets aside to do some talking and writing and more talking and then more writing. In years past, the theme has been an easy guess. But this year there was no kickoff news conference from NASCAR itself. There was no big change to the postseason format (thank heavens), no series title sponsorship announcement, no nothing. No touchstone.In honor of the upcoming Lunar New Year on February 16th, Nike is releasing an SF-AF1 version that tells a story of that day. The Swoosh*s celebration of the Chinese New Year has been extensive this year, including Jordan Brand silhouettes and a plethora of Nike basketball models as well. Keeping with the theme, a massive fireworks display takes shape on the outsole while Chinese characters come emblazoned on its insole. Made up of primarily white, this SF-AF1 dons golden hardware in order to add a bit of luxe to this simplistic design. There is currently no release information available, but expect this offering to drop before the New Year on the 16th.Famed tattoo artist Dr. Woo is teaming up with Converse to put his own unique spin on the iconic Chuck Taylor 70. ※I wanted something clean and not obvious or expected of me,§ Dr. Woo said. Woo takes distinguished aesthetics and recognizable compositions and turns them into one-of-a-kind pieces of body artwork from an unadvertised suite in the Roosevelt Hotel.While Dr. Woo was growing up, he would always take his pair of Chucks and try to deconstruct them 每 drawing all over them, tearing them up, trying to make them unique to himself. His new Chuck collaboration tells the story of a spider and a fly, delivering a minimalist aesthetic that allows for the wearer to come up with his or her own interpretation of the meaning. Dr. Woo*s signature logo also comes emblazoned as a strong focal point of the design as it portrays what communicating with each other and the creatures that inhabit earth means in today*s society. Its design is meant to get dirty and scuffed, as the artist intended for the spider embroidery to get rough and fuzzy, giving the shoe its own personal feel and story as it ages.A very limited number of sneakers will be personally tattooed and signed by Dr. Woo himself, but that release will be exclusive to a private event at Maxfield in LA. The rest of the sneakers will be available at Converse.com and select retailers on January 20th. In the meantime, enjoy a look at both the black and white pair below..But you kind of know. And at least this time, he has a choice to make.. The appreciation for finely crafted bespoke footwear is at an all-time high, and Venice-based No.One is delivering the goods. After a successful brand launch in 2017, which saw the debut of the Alpha, Bravo, and Charlie silhouettes, the Californian label is setting off on the right foot with four releases that exemplify the brand*s high standards of made-to-wear craftsmanship. The luxurious Shearling Stitch Down Alpha, limited to 12 pairs, is made from Italian Shearling lining and 3M boot laces, detailed with 24 points of hand-stitched fluorescent seams. On the other hand, the Deconstructed GoreTex Charlie offers up a more rugged styling with durable uppers and German camo print; only 16 units will be made. Finally, two Bravo silhouettes 每 one in mineral tanned buffalo hide and another in a triple-black 3M water-resistant nubuck 每 will be limited to a dozen each. The entire January collection is available now at No-One.L.. But the seventh-place team in the Western Conference does pose many of the same challenges the Mavs (16-32) witnessed firsthand in Wednesday night's 104-97 loss to the Rockets.."I think we got back to our defensive fundamentals," said reserve point guard Fred VanVleet, who scored a team-high 19 points. "A little bit better rhythm within our offense, passing the ball, we had it moving a little better. Guys were able to knock down shots and just play unselfish basketball."The Jazz (20-28) are 6-19 on the road after they rallied to defeat the Detroit Pistons 98-95 in overtime on Wednesday to go 4-6 in their past 10. The Jazz were coming off a loss to the Hawks on Monday."We were down late and were able to string together some stops," Jazz coach Quin Snyder said after the game on Wednesday. "It's good to win. We missed a few layups and some open shots, but we made them when we needed to."The Raptors already have a win over the Jazz, a 109-100 verdict on Nov. 3 in Salt Lake City, and are going for a season sweep of Utah for the fourth time in the past five seasons.As the Raptors press to gain home-court advantage through the conference finals, coach Dwane Casey still has concerns, particularly with the way the team has performed late in close games."Where we're having an issue is at the end of games," Casey told the Toronto Sun. "We've changed dramatically from being one of the top offensive teams in the league to bottom five in the league in the last five minutes."In games in which the difference in the score is five points or fewer with five minutes or fewer remaining, the Raptors have gone from sixth and 10th in field-goal percentage and points-per-game during clutch time last season to 21st and 17th in those categories this season."A lot of that is. ... disorganization between what we're doing as far as moving the ball, ball movement, playing to our triggers, and that's what we've got to get back to," Casey said. "We kind of fell back from that, some of it is personnel-driven, different personnel in the game (at) the end of the game, whether it's a defensive unit that we have in, so we have to get that organized as a staff to make sure guys understand what we're doing last five minutes of the game."We have to continue to play in our triggers and not go into so-called 'called' plays the last five minutes of the game.""Last year, we always reverted to going to a lot of isolation every time down," Raptors guard DeMar DeRozan said. "This time around, we are still getting a feel for trying to move the ball, trying to put the isolation game in and trying to figure it out. There are so many elements that we are still trying to figure out rather than going with what works or whatever has been working throughout the game and carrying it over to that moment."Meanwhile, there have been reports of tension with the Jazz as trade rumors abound and the team has struggled since posting a 13-11 record after winning their sixth straight game on Dec. 4. Jazz guard/forward Joe Ingles suggests that the reports are exaggerated."The end of the day it's really only us and the coaching staff and the guys in the locker room that knows what's going on," Ingles told the Salt Lake Tribune. "Everyone else just assumes and makes assumptions or does what they have to do. I love how we've stuck together.""We have a bunch of guys who want to get better and want to be better, that's been our biggest thing," Jazz rookie guard Donovan Mitchell said. "When you have guys like Joe who defend our locker room and our team, it's just leaders like that who keep guys together.". .Last week, Jordan Brand set up shop at Spring Studios in NYC*s Tribeca neighborhood to officially present their upcoming footwear for the Spring season. Air Jordan Retros, new colorways of the Air Jordan 32, and Russell Westbrook*s first signature shoe, the Jordan Why Not Zer0.1, are all confirmed to release from now through March. Of course there*s much more beyond what*s pictured here; Jordan Brand is set to release its official collaboration with Levi*s on Wednesday, January 17th, the Black Cement 3s are scheduled for February 17th, and more is certainly in store for All-Star Weekend in Los Angeles. See the preview below and chime in with what you think is the best of the bunch.Jordan Brand*s ※Season Of Her§ Spring collection is getting things started with an extensive Air Jordan 1 collection that comes built with premium materials and tonal pastel colorways. Satin and suede take center stage on these designs, as the Jumpman adds a luxurious aesthetic to the iconic silhouette, meant to embody the spirit and strength of the growing female sneakerhead demographic. Ranging from Ice Peach to Purple Earth, and virtually every color in between, fans of this collection will have ten choices to choose from, all equipped with a white midsole, a color appropriate semi-translucent outsole, and a boldly embroidered midfoot Swoosh.

So how did a relationship that started with so much promise end so abruptly? There*s no one answer, but rather a few driving factors that have led to Jagr*s imminent departure from Calgary.As a slow-footed &old guy* in a speed-emphasized, young man*s NHL, production trumps everything. Unfortunately for Jagr and the Flames, his offensive-output has dropped dramatically just one season removed from a 46-point (0.56 PPG) campaign with the Panthers. Through 22 games with Calgary, Jagr*s point-per-game pace of 0.31 is the worst of his career, as is his minuscule 3.1 shooting percentage. His primary point production has dropped off mightily, too, with his primary-points-per-60 (all situations) falling over 30 percent to 1.05 this season from 1.55 in 2016-17.There are reasons for this monumental drop in offensive production that extend far beyond Jagr*s dwindling skillset. A decline in ice time and a lack of opportunities in choice situations has certainly effected Jagr*s output, as has an unusual run-in with the injury bug, which the soon-to-be 46-year-old has avoided for the majority of his 24-season NHL career.Since arriving on youth-laden Flames club, Jagr has seen his overall ice time lessened by almost 25 percent. His 13:03 TOI this season is over four minutes less than the 17:06 he averaged the past three seasons, with the majority of that coming at even strength, and while skating on the Flames* third and fourth lines. Jagr has played just 34:51 on the power play through 22 games this season, an average of just over a minute-and-a-half per game. Last season with the Panthers, Jagr averaged just under three minutes TOI per contest with his team a man up.Offensive output along with opportunities to produce are down big time, and maybe the biggest reason for that is Jagr*s inability to stay healthy as he has his entire career. Though he was just a young-buck at the tender age of 44-45, Jagr dressed in all 82 games for Florida last season, the sixth time in his career that he*s suited up for every single one of his team*s contests. The eight-time All Star has dressed in at least 75 games an astonishing 16 campaigns during his career, and has missed just 20 of 458 games (4.4%) since his 39-year-old season in 2012-13. This season alone, Jagr has been sidelined for a whopping 49% of Calgary*s game, missing 21 contests with a lingering lower-body injury which has plagued the two-time Stanley Cup champion for the better part of four months.NASCAR fans are used to hearing controversial things out of Kyle Busch*s mouth 〞 not his brother*s. Well, that changed this week. During the NASCAR Media Tour in Charlotte, N.C., on Tuesday, Kyle said the sport*s emphasis on marketing young drivers is ※stupid.§ Fellow drivers ripped the ever-opinionated Kyle for the comments, but NASCAR itself said the remarks were ※fair.§ Enter Kyle*s brother, Kurt Busch. During a recent appearance on the Domenik Nati Show, Kurt attempted to rationalize his brothers comments. ※I agree with certain aspects of what he*s challenged, and then I disagree with other parts of it,§ Kurt said. But what I think he*s trying to say is we*re promoting these guys, and they.Roger Federer completed his latest domination of the Aussie Open with a 5-set win in the Final on Sunday, his 20th career Grand Slam title. Rafa Nadal stole headlines earlier in the tournament when he wore a sleeveless shirt at the Australian Open recently. It is not a look that Federer dares to replicate. The reason is quite simple, according to Federer. World number one-ranked tennis player Rafa Nadal caused a racket this month. Not because he was forced to withdraw from the Australian Open due to injury, but because he went on the court to play wearing a sleeveless shirt. It is not a trend we can expect Nadal's playing rival Roger Federer to replicate. Not because Federer doesn't love Nadal's.Mike Wells ESPN Staff Writer Close Previously worked at Indianapolis Star, covering the Indiana Pacers for nine seasons Also covered Vikings for St. Paul Pioneer Press Follow on Twitter Mike Wells: I think there*s a pretty chance that NC State defensive lineman Bradley Chubb will still be on the board when the Indianapolis Colts draft at No. 3 overall. That*s because the Cleveland Browns and the New York Giants, the teams with the top two picks, both need quarterbacks for the present or the future. The bigger concern -- if you want to call it that -- is that the Colts might not be in the position to choose between Chubb and Penn State running back Saquon Barkley at No. 3. Indianapolis needs help.Mike Schmitz ESPN With 21-year-old rookie stat-stuffer Ben Simmons and 23-year-old All-Star starter Joel Embiid as cornerstones, the Philadelphia 76ers have one of the most exciting young cores in the NBA. Sprinkle in high-level role starters such as Dario Saric (23) and Robert Covington (27), and young bench contributors T.J. McConnell (25) and Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot (22) and there's reason for the optimism flowing through Philly, even with prized No. 1 pick Markelle Fultz yet to regain form. The Sixers are competitive (No. 7 in the East) while still sitting on young talent and future assets. But with all the well-deserved focus on Philly's talented, young roster and its future draft picks,2018 Dallas Cowboys Mock Draft Tracker - John Hancock, DallasNews Ten experts make their draft predictions for who they believe the Cowboys will select with the 19th overall pick. Here's from Mel Kiper Jr.'s pick: The rest of the experts are picking the following players: DT Maurice Hurst (3), DT Da'Ron Payne (2), DT Christian Wilkins [did not enter the draft], WR Michael Gallup, WR Christian Kirk, S Derwin James, Check out the write-up on each in the orginal article. If you've ever watched the Cowboy war room when they are on the clock in the second round, you can usually see them pretty excited about a player still left on the board. Last year, that excitement came from Chidobe Awuzie, A couple weeks ago, Matt Provenzano went over how the Yankees looked according to Dan Szymborski*s ZiPS projections. Spoiler alert: they look good. Projections are not a fail-safe, and reality will always diverge from what is forecast. That the Yankees project demonstrably better now than they did in recent years, however, can only be taken as a good sign. There are other teams the Yankees must contend with, however. Chief among them are the Red Sox. Indeed, Boston has won the AL East each of the past two seasons. No matter how good the Yankees look moving forward, the Red Sox are still here, and they must be taken seriously. Just how seriously? It helps to once again turn to ZiPS to get a feel.It*s the worst-kept secret in the NBA that the Los Angeles Lakers have plans on luring two big free agents this summer, but in order to do so they will need to clear some salary cap space. Jordan Clarkson and Julius Randle have been mentioned ad nauseum as potential trade candidates, but a somewhat surprising inclusion recently was Larry Nance Jr. Once called the team*s secret weapon by president of basketball operations Magic Johnson, Nance began the season as a starter, but now comes off the bench. Either way, he constantly provides excellent defense and hustle, even as his offensive game hasn*t developed as much as many had hoped, himself included. Many viewed the Lakers possibly shopping.The Cavaliers' Dwyane Wade posted an emotional farewell to Instagram on Saturday after the passing of his agent Henry "Hank" Thomas. A representative from Thomas' agency, CAA, confirmed his passing to Sports Illustrated. Wade had missed the Cavaliers game on Friday night against the Pacers with a "family emergency." In the post, Wade wrote about how Thomas served as a father figure to him and he wished he would be there for the next moments in his life.

As reported by our Sports Boy Wonder Chris Cotillo,The Cardinals have been fairly quiet since their Dec. 14 trade for Marcell Ozuna. While the Ozuna addition surely moves the needle when it comes to the Cardinals' chances of making the postseason in 2018, needs remain. Mostly, the focus has been on third base. While you can certainly argue that a known quantity in the infield is called for, I'd argue the rotation presents more of a need. Here's why that's the case ... 1. The Cardinals have lost a lot of starts from last season. In keeping with ancient tradition and the rulebook, the Cardinals played 162 games in 2017. Lance Lynn and Mike Leake combined to start 59 of those 162 games, or 36.4 percent of them. Lynn is of course one of the many.. Most notably part of the upcoming adidas x Dragon Ball Z collection in a Freeza-inspired colorway, the Three Stripe*s newest Yung-1 silhouette was spotted at Paris Fashion week in two designs. One simple, dressed in a color scheme made up of neutral colors, and the other draped in a vibrant orange, it shows the versatility of this clunky design. Sticking with one of adidas* common themes, the Yung-1 utilizes the upper of the vintage adidas Falcon and places it atop a brand new sole unit. Due to its bulky aesthetic, the sneaker has drawn comparisons to the adidas Yeezy 700 Wave Runner as well. At the moment, there is no specific release info for these two Yung-1 colorways, but keep it locked to Sneaker News for updates.. Jae has been playing good the last few games and it has nothing to do with Jae," Lue said. "He's been great. He's all about the right things. He's all about the team."You hate to make these changes.

It was a great talk with him."Crowder has underperformed this season -- his first with the Cavs. Traded by Boston along with Thomas, Ante Zizic and two draft picks for Kyrie Irving, Crowder's scoring, shooting, rebounding and defensive numbers are all down from a year ago.

There are not many fanbases in sports who share as much mutual respect with an opposing player as the Knicks do with Michael Jordan. While number 23 had a propensity for lighting it up in the Garden, the matchups were always a spectacle, and everyone in attendance knew they were watching something special. Over the years the connection MJ has with the Knicks has taken form on multiple Jordan Brand shoes the likes of the Jordan 5 Low and the Air Jordan 1 both in Knicks-centric colorways. Now, the Jumpman is gearing up to honor the Knickerbockers once again with another Air Jordan 5 dressed up in an alternate blue and orange color scheme that sports cream as its base. While the image you see pictured above is no more than a photoshopped rendering, you can expect this iteration to bare a very close resemblance.. The Jumpman is no stranger to V-Day releases, as we have seen the brand put out an Air Jordan 5 and an Air Jordan 12 for Cupid*s favorite holiday in the past.

Both the Eclipse and the Concept sport simpler aesthetics with black taking the lead on each design and brown serving as the accenting hue.

This weekend, the Air Jordan 13 dons the aforementioned colorway dipped in suede, sporting a primarily black color scheme on its upper with olive on its mudguard and heel while red dressed up the Jordan Branding.

Boasting the tallest Air bag in brand history, the Air Max 270 has sneakerheads excited thanks to its sleek design and inspiring colorways, but it looks like there will be another style from the 270 category coming in early March. This alternate model features the same cushioning unit and engineered mesh materials, but with an upper with far more Air 180 DNA; this is evident in the classic ※180§ logo on the tongue, the Nike Air on the heel, and the overlay that mimics the original model from 1991.

Equipped with a full-length Boost midsole, the construction of this design boasts a very similar aesthetic makeup to the Uncaged Ultra Boost model. Dressed primarily in black, this styling has specks of green and pink scattered throughout the upper as well as a large white striped pattern on its heel meant to match the adidas branding.

The Jumpman is bringing the Triple White aesthetic back to the Air Jordan 3, sans silver or any special Pure Money monicker. Another element interestingly missing from the upcoming selection is the elephant print pattern that makes the Jordan 3 one of the most recognizable sneakers in the world. While the lack of elephant print is surprising, it is certainly not the first time it has been missing, as the nearly blacked out Cyber Monday 3 was designed the same way. Interested parties of this white-out Jordan Brand offering will have the chance to pick up a pair when it hits shelves on its seasonally appropriate July 21st release date..Last week, Jordan Brand introduced its ※Season Of Her§ pack which dresses up two of the brand*s most recognizable silhouettes in women*s exclusive colorways for its Spring 2018 collection. Nike and the Jumpman have been two of the leading labels when it comes to recognizing the growing demand in the female sneakerhead community to which they have responded with a plethora of exclusives for that specific demographic. While the upcoming Air Jordan 11 Low ※Rose Gold§ is not part of the aforementioned ※Season of Her§ capsule, it does represent another offering for lady fans of the brand. Much like the two previous Air Jordan 11 Heiress selections, this styling adds a bit of a luxurious feel to the 11th Jordan sneaker by way of a metallic hue and premium materials on its mudguard and upper. Expect this exclusive drop for the women and girls to arrive at retailers this summer.Tyler, The Creator is re-upping on his initial Golf Le Fleur One Star collection with another capsule that dresses the design up in three new colorways. In typical Tyler fashion, his custom floral logo takes center stage if this design once again, as it comes embroidered above the star cut-out that made the One Star famous. The West-Coast based rapper*s unconventional rise to hip-hop fame takes shape in this collection with eccentric customized insoles and outsoles that further the boisterous aesthetic that is masterfully achieved by Converse and Tyler alike. This time around fans of both Tyler and the brand that started it all will have their choice of pink, blue, and green, with darker floral patterns of the same hue. The next wave of Tyler, The Creator x Converse One Star designs will be hitting shelves on January 18th along with an apparel collection that is sure to turn heads.One of the most beloved retro releases in Jordan Brand*s storied history was the Raging Bull Defining Moments Pack from 2009 that is currently garnering a re-sale value in the ,500 range on websites like Stadium Goods. The Jumpman*s decision to bring back the ※Toro§ colorway from that pack should be well received, even though it is dressing up one of the less-preferred silhouettes in its catalogue 每 the Air Jordan 18. Red suede has adorned less popular silhouettes in the past, the likes of the Air Jordan 14 ※Ferrari§ and the Air Jordan 21 ※Red Suede§ and those models did well, so it is reasonable to expect the same from this 18. Black detailing is featured on the midsole and the Jordan branding, putting the ※Toro§ aesthetic over the top and harkens back to one of the brand*s best creations..Major League Baseball free agency has been at a standstill all offseason, and Scott Boras has some things to say about it. Boras was asked about the slow market 〞 in which many of his clients are still looking for jobs 〞 and, as usual, he did not hold back.Boras spoke to Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic about his disappointment with the way teams are acting this offseason. He specifically took aim at the clubs that are not planning to field a competitive team in 2018.Those are some pretty strong words, but do they hold weight? Are 10 teams really not trying to be competitive in 2018, or is Boras being hyperbolic?Those are some pretty strong words, but do they hold weight? Are 10 teams really not trying to be competitive in 2018, or is Boras being hyperbolic?.Staying in the NL would make sense for both if they want to reestablish some more value..this iconic Air Jordan sneaker, regarded as one of the greatest in the brand*s history, will retail for 0 in adult sizing with hangtags. The last time we saw this model and colorway bearing the original logo was in 2001,.The Detroit Tigers have one of baseball*s most iconic uniforms. Any changes they*d make 〞 aside from MLB*s holiday uniforms 〞 would be minimal at most. But as we learned Thursday, even slight changes are too much for some Tigers fans.The Tigers announced a tweak to their uniforms for 2018: They*re making the Olde English D on their uniforms and cap match, because they hadn*t in the past. They*re taking inspiration from the team*s 1904 and 1905 uniforms for the new D. Have a look at these before and afters.

  • ※I only had one,§ Amendola said, via Mike Reiss of ESPN. ※They put your name on the back and everything, and I guess they were selling it for some reason. [A friend] bought it, sent it to me framed and said, &Hang this on your wall so you*ll never forget the day they cut you.* I have it hanging. I*ll never forget that. I learned a lot there, but at the end of the day.Amendola signed with the Eagles* practice squad January 7, 2009 with Philadelphia still in the postseason. He stayed with the team in the offseason and through the preseason before being released. The Eagles re-signed him to the practice squad, where he lasted two weeks before the Rams signed him to their active roster.※I was very low on the depth chart and learning, but I got some great tutelage from some really good coaches,§ Amendola said of his days in Philadelphia. ※There were a lot of good receivers there, too: Jason Avant, DeSean Jackson. Jeremy Maclin. Hank Baskett. Kevin Curtis was there; a guy I learned a lot from. I still carry those relationships on now with most of those guys.§

  • The Bulls (18-30) know a bit about failing to finish as well. After blowing a 17-point lead in the final minutes of a double-overtime loss to New Orleans on Monday, Chicago was listless in a 115-101 loss to the Philadelphia 76ers in a game the Bulls trailed by as many as 25 points.
    ※Players talk about wanting to win and wanting to be a champion, but ultimately they want to do it on their own terms§, Rose added. ※When you go to San Antonio, guess who*s the CEO of that organization? Gregg Popovich. It*s going to be his way.§The difficulty for the Spurs, if Leonard really is determined to leave, is going to be finding a trade partner ready and able to give them anything like equal value in return. It feels like San Antonio might have to go through the same difficulties as the Cavaliers endured with Kyrie Irving last summer. Only Leonard may be even more valuable as a prolific scorer and one of the NBA*s best defensive players.All eight shoes from the adidas Dragon Ball Z collection have been revealed; they will begin releasing in August featuring iconic match-ups between protagonists and antagonists of the Dragon Ball franchise. It starts in August with Son Goku and Frieza/Freeza from the ※Freeza Saga§ represented by the adidas ZX 500 RM and the Yung-1. September will feature Son Gohan and Cell from the ※Cell and the Androids Saga§ with the new adidas Deerupt and the Prophere. It continues in November with Vegeta and Majin Buu from the ※Majin Buu Saga§ represented by the Ultra Tech and the Kamanda. As of this report, the collection concludes in December with Shenlong and Super Shenlong (alternately spelled ※Shenron§) and the upcoming EQT Mid ADV. We would guess December is based on ※The Secret of the Dragon Balls.§The entire selection of footwear highlights adidas* newer footwear models that are set to debut throughout 2018. The obvious lack of BOOST footwear models might be alarming, but adidas is attempting to bring energy around fresh silhouettes in an effort to broaden consumer interest beyond the predictable NMD route. Additionally, The Yeezy Mafia reveals that each shoe release will come with an action figure of the corresponding character.There are rumors that characters Mr. Popo, Yajirobe, Tenshinhan and Mr. Satan will also be getting their own silhouette, which suggests that the adidas Dragon Ball Z collection may extend beyond the eight shoes seen here.

  • LeBron has the benefit of hindsight. Even if he soured on the trade with foresight, his frustration is lingering because of the results. If he were wrong and the trade looked like a victory for Cleveland, he would quickly forgive the Cavs for not honoring his request to keep Irving. LeBron also has the luxury of nobody knowing the counterfactual. Reality has gone poorly for the Cavaliers. Perhaps, keeping Irving would have gone even worse, with him sitting out the entire season and lowering his trade value while providing no help in Cleveland*s bid to beat the Warriors.
