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 ¨C 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.

Now, the Swoosh is emulating the success of those drops wth a blue and orange version of the LeBron 15. It is not the first time Nike has replicated the retro Cavaliers¡¯ blue and orange color scheme, as it has been seen on other models the likes of the LeBron 14 and the Solder 10 as well..

"Dion, very productive at Pitt," Belichick said, "we all saw that, went to Cleveland, got off to a fast start, got injured, missed most of the [year]. Then, again, it was Mike Lombardi. Mike was here. Mike was with him and saw him, and same thing I just talked about Danny with Josh . . . Mike saw that with Cleveland.. It¡¯s a very saturated market for signature shoes right now, but it¡¯s also interesting and fun. I think the main thing you have to do is be in tune with your athlete and let their personality come out, and that can be what separates the shoe from the rest. As long as you¡¯re really bringing their personality out and what¡¯s unique to them, the people that want to connect with it will. That¡¯s what we try to do ¨C keep it really authentic to him. He¡¯s really relatable to kids because he¡¯s a super humble guy, but also this superstar.

PARADISE ISLAND, Bahamas ¨C Lexi Thompson has a new putter in the bag at this week¡¯s season-opening Pure Silk-Bahamas Classic. It¡¯s called the Happy Putter, and it¡¯s unique in that the alignment aids are interchangeable. Stacy Lewis used one in 2016. ¡°I just needed a little alignment change,¡± said Thompson, who said the shape of the new putter is similar to the Bettinardi model she had so much success with. There¡¯s merit to a fresh look, Lewis noted, something different that causes the eyes to focus more. As the last American player to be ranked No. 1 and win LPGA Player of the Year, Lewis¡¯ opinions regarding her peers hold clout. She looks at the logjam of players who are vying for the top spot.Ricky Stenhouse Jr. won¡¯t be shifting gears with his race-day strategy, following his sudden split from Danica Patrick.

Out with the old and in with the new. Out under head coach Pat Shurmur? Defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo and special teams coach Tom Quinn. In? Former Arizona Cardinals defensive coordinator James Bettcher and likely Carolina Panthers special teams coach Thomas McGaughey. Bettcher is 39 years old with a recent track record of success. McGaughey is 44 with much of the same. They both show promise for a bright future. At 52 years old, Shurmur would be the old man of the bunch. The time for an overhaul with the Giants is apparently now. Maybe co-owner John Mara wasn't kidding when he promised.New York Giants general manager Dave Gettleman is not one to mince words and he isn¡¯t afraid of laying things on the line if he deems it necessary. And on Wednesday from the Senior Bowl, he did exactly that. In addition to confirming that Eli Manning will return to the Giants and resume his role as the starting quarterback, Gettleman also dispelled rumors that New England Patriots coordinators Matt Patricia and Josh McDaniels were preferred head coaching candidates to Pat Shurmur. Gettleman also seemed to choose his words very carefully, and in throwing his support behind Shurmur, he appeared to take a subtle shot at departed head coach Ben McAdoo. ¡°I really believe the head coach job for the.The Giants are bringing back a pitcher who threw a no-hitter for them before his career fizzled, and he wound up with an American League West team. And it¡¯s not Tim Lincecum. Chris Heston, who provided the Giants with solid results from the back end of their rotation in 2015, signed a minor-league contract with San Francisco, according to NBC Sports Bay Area. The 29-year-old right-hander was a revelation for San Francisco while going 12-11 with a 3.95 ERA in 2015. Heston¡¯s career highlight came on June 9, 2015 when he no-hit the Mets in New York. He remains the last Giant to throw a no-hitter. After an injury plagued 2016, Heston was dealt to the Mariners for a minor leaguer. He pitched in two.Lionel Messi has been demonstrating his impeccable skills again, this time on Japanese television show on the popular TBS channel. The Barcelona star was tasked with striking 20 targets with a football in the space of 100 seconds. He took just 82 seconds, much to the delight of the presenters. Of course, this isn't the first time that Messi has blown minds on Japanese television, having set a new world record during a previous appearance in which he was tasked with controlling footballs being chucked at him from 59 feet in the air. Nice to see that Messi has a post-retirement career as a one-man travelling football roadshow lined up. Chris covers the funny side of the game for ESPN FC in the..CLEVELAND -- Coach Tyronn Lue relented and the Cleveland Cavaliers will trot out a new starting lineup Friday against the Indiana Pacers. The Cavs are reeling, losing two straight and 11 of the last 15 games. They are the league's second-worst defensive team -- the worst in the past 15 games -- and have struggled tremendously to make virtually anything work with Isaiah Thomas on the court. But Thomas isn't the change. Lue will start Tristan Thompson at center and slide Kevin Love back to power forward. It means Jae Crowder goes to the bench. Lue has resisted making lineup and rotation changes while the Cavs are in a rut. "Jae has been playing good the last few games and it has nothing to do with.The Golden State forward found out he¡¯s going to play alongside LeBron James and against Warriors teammate Stephen Curry in next month¡¯s NBA All-Star Game after apparently being the first pick in the All-Star draft.. adidas¡¯ new AlhpaBOUNCE Beyond silhouette is strategically designed for athletes who use running as a tool to dominate their sport.

While the shoe is designed for running, it is not necessarily geared toward runners, as it is meant to help an athlete gain a competitive edge, control tempo, and in the end, dominate their game.. 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..Shortly after the first look of Nike¡¯s ¡°Reimagined¡± collection, the Swoosh has provided official release information for all five of the remixed Air Force 1 stylings.

Chicago is expected again to be without starting point guard Kris Dunn, who continues to deal with a concussion. Jerian Grant will start in Dunn's place as the Bulls hope to shake off a loss and show some energy that coach Fred Hoiberg said was lacking in the Bulls' last outing.. 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.Ewing Athletics¡¯ January collection is designed with Black History Month in mind, featuring three silhouettes ¨C the Ewing 33 Hi, the Eclipse, and the Concept.

The Oakland Raiders know who their head coach and starting quarterback will be in 2018. That would be Jon Gruden and Derek Carr. However, they might have a void at backup quarterback. Could the NFL be pushing for the Silver and Black to sign controversial free agent Colin Kaepernick this offseason? It¡¯s Wednesday and this is the Black Hole Roll Call. Kaepernick wasn¡¯t part of an NFL organization in 2017. Taking a knee during the playing of the national anthem has not landed well with NFL owners and much of middle America. However, it may be time.When we last joined the ongoing reality show that is the Ball Brothers Take Lithuania, they had just made their "professional" "basketball" debuts in a glorified AAU tournament that their father was putting on. They played okay and beat a team that was basically full of teens. They are still playing in said pro tournament, uh... I mean... Big Baller Brand Challenge, but in their most recent game they played so well that we can't ignore their Euro adventure. In a game against the powerhouse that is Alytaus Dz¨±kija, LaMelo and LiAngelo combined for an absurd 80 points and 17 rebounds. I don't care what level of competition you're playing against, those are impressive stats. And the highlights? The highlights are pretty astounding too.. Nike¡¯s NBA ¡°City Edition¡± collection drops tomorrow, with four versions of the Swoosh¡¯s premier basketball silhouettes paying tribute to each team¡¯s respective communities. To follow up that drop, Nike is adding City Edition design options to the Air Force 1 that equally embody the heritage of the respective cities they are paying tribute to.

The Raptors (32-14) are 1 1/2 games behind the Celtics (35-14) and take a 17-3 record at the Air Canada Centre -- the second-best home record in the NBA behind the San Antonio Spurs' 20-3 mark -- into the homestand..

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.. Progressive materials and styling adorn the new silhouettes that are part of the second collection which envisions the future of skate and streetwear. Included in the next drop will be the innovative Clyde Sock Lo as well as the brand new slip-on, zip up Abyss silhouette.

The highest drafted quarterback that year was EJ Manuel at 16, and he¡¯s now the Raiders¡¯ backup.. jordan nike kids spizike bgDurant photoshopped an image of James onto his shirt, using the same image he used to announce his signing with the Warriors in 2016. It was also the same title -- My Next Chapter -- as the Players' Tribune article he wrote for the announcement. Adding some more fun to the game, Durant wrote, "I'm coming for you Stephen." And did he announce he was the No. 1 pick in the draft between Curry and James? It appears so.. ¡°You get to know each and every one of the prospects we talked about and we¡¯re months away from this process,¡± Dorsey said. ¡°We¡¯re at the beginning stages. Let¡¯s understand who they are as people, let¡¯s understand them as football players, let¡¯s see if they can be the face of the franchise. Are they the guys for the Cleveland Browns? That¡¯s how I look at this.¡±Asked if it was safe to say he was taking a quarterback first, he replied: ¡°It¡¯s safe to say ¡®you never know.¡±But you kind of know. And at least this time, he has a choice to make.. One of the key ingredients in determining how the Giants view their No. 2 pick in the NFL Draft is this: How do they feel about Davis Webb? Every indication from general manager Dave Gettleman and new head coach Pat Shurmur is that Eli Manning will return as the starting quarterback. It will be difficult for the Giants to pass up taking a top prospect, such as Josh Rosen or Sam Darnold or even Josh Allen to ensure their quarterback of the future is on the roster. Unless, of course, they believe Webb ¡ª the 2017 third-round pick ¡ª can be that guy. Shurmur in his role as the Vikings offensive coordinator evaluated the quarterbacks in last year¡¯s draft and came away impressed with Webb...

The crafty veteran was supposed to march Calgary towards the playoffs while ending his illustrious NHL career with one final postseason run before flying off into the sunset on his fire-breathing minotaur with his ¡®2018 Stanley Cup Champions¡¯ hat entrenched upon his flowing, reinvigorated salt-and-pepper mullet.But unfortunately, that¡¯s not how this story ends. The 45-year-old was placed on waivers Sunday and is reportedly considering a return to Europe if this is the end of his NHL journey.. He and I talk about the way he plays the game, and I think he plays the game the right way," Pacers coach Nate McMillan said, according to The Indianapolis Star. "When teams are committing two to him, he has to be a willing passer, and I thought (Wednesday night) he did that. That's going to open up some things for him later against other teams.We constantly talk to our guys about playing the game the right way, respect the game, and I thought Vic did that.NEW YORK (AP) ¡ª LeBron James got Kevin Durant and reunited with Kyrie Irving in the NBA's first All-Star draft. Stephen Curry picked James Harden and Giannis Antetokounmpo, the NBA's top two scorers, and grabbed his other two Golden State teammates in the selections Thursday. The draft was not televised, and neither James nor Curry would reveal who they chose first when they were interviewed on TNT when the rosters were unveiled. James was among those who said fans should have watched the proceedings and his decision to draft Irving could have made for a must-see moment. The point guard asked out of Cleveland last summer and the Cavaliers traded him to conference rival Boston. ¡°Kyrie was available.With the NBA trade deadline rapidly approaching, the Los Angeles Lakers will explore all avenues in upgrading their roster for both the short-term and long-term. Whether that¡¯s absorbing expiring contracts in exchange for draft picks, or even acquiring a player with an eye on the future. The front office has made it clear that it wants financial flexibility for the upcoming star-studded free agent class that will include the likes of DeMarcus Cousins, Paul George and LeBron James. In order for the Lakers to achieve their goal of clearing enough space for the possibility of signing two maximum-salary players this summer, they must part ways with two of Deng, Jordan Clarkson and Julius Randle.The Philadelphia Eagles have been making their travel plans to Minneapolis in preparation for Super Bowl 52, but Minnesota Vikings fans are making sure they don't have good visit. Philadelphia defeated the Minnesota Vikings 38-7 in the NFC Championship Game, ruining the Vikings chances of becoming the first team to play a Super Bowl in its home stadium. Some videos went viral of some Eagles fans booing Vikings fans and throwing beer cans at them prior to the game, causing Vikings fans to use the "Philly fan" narrative about how bad they were treated during their stay in Philadelphia. The Eagles will play the Patriots in Super Bowl 52! Continue following the dream season with us. Make sure.There's not a lot Tom Brady hasn't accomplished in his career. The quarterback holds so many records that the NFL record book should probably just be named after him whenever he decides to retire. However, there is one thing that Brady has never done, and if the Patriots beat the Eagles in Super Bowl LII, he'll become the first quarterback in NFL history to pull it off: lead the NFL in passing yards AND win the Lombardi trophy in the same year. Believe it or not, that's never been done before in the Super Bowl era. I mean, just think about that for a second: Not once have we ever seen a quarterback lead the NFL in passing yards AND win the Super Bowl. With prolific passers like Peyton Manning,The NBA¡¯s Feb. 8 trade deadline is rapidly approaching. Teams haven¡¯t pulled the trigger on any trades yet, but rumors continue to trickle out. Probably the most talked about team is the Cleveland Cavaliers, who have been linked to a number of potentially available players. The main rumor this week involves Sacramento Kings point guard George Hill. Jason Jones of The Sacramento Bee reported on Tuesday that the Kings were working with the Cavs on a deal for Hill: The Kings continue to work closer to a trade that would send guard George Hill to the Cleveland Cavaliers for a package that would include Channing Frye and guard Iman Shumpert and some form of draft compensation, league sources told.Now that the novelty of two American teenagers, along with their brash, outspoken father, traveling to Lithuania to play professional basketball has worn off, nobody really seems to care about LiAngelo and LaMelo Ball and their BC Vytautas exploits.Now that nobody seems to care about LiAngelo and LaMelo Ball and their BC Vytautas exploits, the team and their Big Ballers have quickly realized they need a new stunt to rejuvenate their brand.Let's get to the Philadelphia Eagles links ... Carson Wentz¡¯s projected timetable for return may allow Eagles to trade Nick Foles - PhillyVoice It¡¯s also worth noting that Foles is slated to become more expensive in 2018, when he will count for .6 million on the salary cap, .2 million of which the Eagles would save if they traded him. For a team that is tight against the cap, that money could go toward other important matters, like re-signing free agent-to-be LB Nigel Bradham, or helping get a contract extension done with players whose contracts are set to expire after the 2018 season, like DE Brandon Graham, LB Jordan Hicks, CB Ronald Darby, or RB Jay Ajayi. Will Nick Foles start in 2018?(Click here if you¡¯re having trouble viewing the gallery on your mobile device.) SAN FRANCISCO ¡ª On the day the Raiders fired defensive coordinator Ken Norton Jr., linebacker Bruce Irvin tweeted a one-word, all-caps response. It was along the lines of ¡°bullcrud.¡± On Friday night, dressed to the nines and occasionally dabbing away tears, Irvin put his feelings just a tad more eloquently. ¡°I look at you not only as a coach but as a friend, as a father, as an uncle, as a step dad ¡ª as everything,¡± he told Norton in a moving tribute. ¡°I just thank God for bringing us together.
