jordan 12 jumpman,It*s worth noting that the Spurs have done pretty well this season so far without Leonard. Could they demand a slew of first-round picks from a fringe contender in the East determined to win now, like the 76ers? That could give the impression to their fanbase that they are set on a rebuild, though. But acquiring a superstar in return for Leonard〞say, Russell Westbrook〞is going to be fraught with difficulty.! We should point out that of course Boras is going to rail against teams not spending. It*s his job to get players paid.Kicking out the owners of these clubs is an extreme suggestion, but asking for change isn*t unreasonable considering the state of things.After the Cleveland Cavaliers* latest dispiriting loss 〞 a Tuesday night defeat at the hands of a San Antonio Spurs team playing without Kawhi Leonard, Pau Gasol, Manu Ginobili and Rudy Gay 〞 head coach Tyronn Lue decded enough was enough: he needed to change a starting lineup that*s been absolutely steamrolled over the past three weeks. Lue announced his preferred shake-up on Thursday: when the Cavs take the court against the Indiana Pacers on Friday, they*ll do so with Tristan Thompson back in the lineup at center and Kevin Love bumping down to power forward, with Jae Crowder moving to the bench.?Despite not giving him much of a chance of eclipsing his Djokovic scalp by toppling Federer on Friday, Wilander says Chung's emergence is "very exciting" and he could be the future of the game.. Durant 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..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.

Keeping with the theme, a massive fireworks display takes shape on the outsole while Chinese characters come emblazoned on its insole.

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..

Here*s a surprise 每 Nike is bringing back the Air Max Deluxe this year for the first time ever. Originally debuting in 1999, the Air Max Deluxe utilized the full-length Air unit from the 97 model, but with a completely redesigned upper that featured a sock-like neoprene upper, a molded heel, and a classic tongue construction. The Deluxe model never really got the recognition, but this flashy model made use of some wild colorways thanks to printed graphics on the aforementioned neoprene.

A release date hasn*t been confirmed, but it looks like your Air Max Deluxe dreams are coming true..Jordan Brand is ready to start 2018 with a bang as the long-awaited sequel to the 2007 collaboration with Levi*s is set to release on January 17th. The Air Jordan 4, draped completely in denim, takes on some of the Levi*s brand DNA by way of custom leather patches on the tongue, leather labels on the inner tongues, contrast stitching in golden yellow, and the signature red-tab branding that emulates a classic pair of jeans. A stylish contrast is achieved by reversing the denim fabric on the tongue, side panel, and interior lining, while a white/gum outsole combination adds to the blue-collar appeal.

Through 49 games, the Rangers have earned 53 points with a 24-20-5 record; that puts them just outside of the second wild card seed, where the Pittsburgh Penguins stand with 55 points. Five teams in the Metropolitan Division are ahead of the Rangers in the standings, and all five are currently in a playoff spot.

The Denver Broncos are one of multiple teams likely to target a new quarterback in the top 10 picks of the 2018 NFL draft, but which of them will still be on the board when they make their selection? In the latest 2018 NFL mock draft from CBS Sports, the Broncos luck out by getting the most pro-ready passer in this year*s draft at No. 5 overall, as UCLA*s Josh Rosen falls right into their lap. After the Cleveland Browns opt for USC*s Sam Darnold at No. 1 overall, the New York Giants to pass on Rosen and the rest of this year*s top quarterbacks at No. 2, preferring Penn State running back Saquon Barkley.

Team unrest has taken over the headlines, as the Cavs have dropped seven of their last 10 games, coinciding with Isaiah Thomas* return to the lineup. Players are reportedly sniping at teammates during team meetings. Nowhere was the team discord more evident than on the floor during the Cavs* 114-102 loss Tuesday to the Spurs. After Kevin Love takes an elbow to the face from LaMarcus Aldridge and falls down, not one Cavs teammate goes over to help him up. In fact, Jae Crowder stepped over Love, who had his hand extended, to take the ball out of bounds. The Spurs* Dejounte Murray seemed.. Pharrell and adidas both know they have struck gold with their partnership, as the NMD Human Race line is one of the most coveted sneaker releases of the month whenever it drops. While not all people can afford the crazy resale prices the collaboration garners, the Tennis Hu silhouette offers a strong 每 cheaper 每 alternative that still comes equipped with Pharrell Williams branding. Devoid of any Boost technology, the Tennis Hu dons a waffle-patterned midsole and outsole that provides a unique aesthetic you cannot find elsewhere in the Three Stripe*s catlog. A large portion of this silhouette*s colorways have been loud and boisterous, with marbled midsoles and multi-color knit uppers, but this new version keeps it much simpler. Light tan dresses up the upper, while stark white adds contrast on the heel tab, tongue tab, and aforementioned sole. adidas and Pharrell fanatics alike can grab this new offering from adidas stockists on February 1st for 0 USD..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.. Under Armour*s ongoing efforts to break into the lifestyle footwear category made its biggest mark in 2017 as the brand officially announced a partnership with A$AP Rocky last June. We*ve yet to see anything come to light from that partnership, but it*s looking like something*s in the works thanks to this leaked photo that reveals the Harlem-based style icon and a sample of an Under Armour shoe. The upper is a clear take on the retro-style running shoe trend that*s sure to hit an apex in 2017, while the midsole is from the Forge 1 shoe from UA Sportswear, a shoe that quietly debuted last year. Under Armour confirms that the shoe here is not an A$AP collaboration, but an upcoming model from the aforementioned Forge 1 line. The A$AP Rocky x Under Armour Sportswear collaboration is set to debut this year.. It*s a very saturated market for signature shoes right now, but it*s also interesting and fun.

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.. 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..I think the Djokovic style is the blueprint that Chung has followed and he is reminiscent of Novak at his best..Despite not giving him much of a chance of eclipsing his Djokovic scalp by toppling Federer on Friday, Wilander says Chung's emergence is "very exciting" and he could be the future of the game.. On the heels of a grey version of the Air Jordan 13 being gifted to the Oregon Ducks* basketball team, Nike is hooking its football team up with a colorway of its own. In a nod to the state*s beautiful green landscape, this 13 is covered in quad green, with a white toe box, and a matching green duck that replaces the shoe*s traditional hologram. In a more obvious way, the Jumpman that customarily rests on this sneaker*s tongue has been replaced with an oversized Oregon ※O§ logo. Sadly, this shoe is limited to friends and family of the Oregon football program, so unless that is you, all you can do it enjoy the set of images you see below.. Nike*s LeBron 7 ※Hardwood Classic§ PE*s are inarguably some of the most iconic and most sought after PE*s in the King*s signature line, as the resale market demands prices upwards of ,000 for the ※Alternate§ colorway. 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..Since the original debut of the Air Jordan 1 in 1985,. ※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.

That*s how I look at this.§. If you've been keeping up with the Cleveland Cavaliers drama that's reportedly focused on Kevin Love, you're probably going to look for signs on the court that there's serious trouble in the locker room. That brings us to this video from Tuesday's Cavaliers loss to the San Antonio Spurs - Love got knocked down in the paint as LaMarcus Aldridge scores over him. Then? Hmmm. It sure looks like Jae Crowder steps right over Love, who has a hand up to ask for some help. Now, look: It could be that Crowder had to grab the ball for an inbounds pass or perhaps risk a delay-of-game if he picked up Love. Or he was frustrated that the Cavs were down by 13 at that point.

Because Peterson hailed from Palestine, Texas, he seemed predestined to star in the Big 12.

Since the league's inception, Texas high school players like Peterson have long been the Big 12's lifeblood.

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.

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. A post shared by dwyanewade (@dwyanewade) on Jan 27, 2018 at 12:32pm PST Coach Tyronn Lue said Friday that general manager Koby Altman talked with Wade and told him to "take his time" with the issue. "How much ever time he needs to take to get.The MLB Daily Dish is a daily feature we're running here at MLBDD that rounds up roster-impacting news, rumors, and analysis.

Does no one else see the awkwardness here? We*re not going to sugar coat it〞the stove is so cold it*s actually a freezer. But is there light at the end of this frigid tunnel? These are the one remaining free-agent fit for every team. The Royals have re-signed Alcides Escobar. The Mets have re-signed veteran infielder Jose Reyes. 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..The defending NBA champs, the winningest team in the league three seasons and running, entered the second quarter with a lead only four times.Nine opponents shot at least 50 percent from the field, including one (the Grizzlies on Dec. 30) that was at 65.2 and another (the Trail Blazers on Dec. 11) at 60 percent..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.

  • "I know we haven't made (free throws, but) we have guys that I trust at the line that need to step up and knock those down," Walton said, according to the Times. "Obviously, we love the win, our guys did a heck of a job of scrapping and fighting ... (but) our execution down the stretch is not OK."

  • Following a successful partnership with the Swoosh on the Nike Vandal High, fashion designer John Elliott is back with Nike again on the Air Force 1 Low. Following a similar aesthetic, Elliott keeps things very simple with this design, so much so, that at first glance, it might just look like the OG white colorway. Upon closer inspection, it is clear that the shoe*s construction has been altered. At the end of 2017, Elliott was tasked with creating this design to further the celebration of the iconic sneaker*s 35th anniversary.Acknowledging that it was difficult to make a unique design while having to keep the sneaker all white, Elliott opted to add dimension and layers to the silhouette in order to add depth and shadows. One of the more unique elements, was the decision to die-cut the midfoot Swoosh and place pebbled leather in its place to create the appearance of going inward. Check out the rest of Elliott*s design process from an Instsgram post he shared back in November below and expect a release in the Fall of 2018.

  • As of now, the only details available are regarding an apparel line that will include garments from tear away pants to parkas and everything in between. There are also ongoing rumors of a Nike Presto being included in this collection as well, but nothing can be confirmed at this time. Check out the rest of the style codes below and the the pieces they are affiliated with. Expect releases during the fall and winter and stay tuned to Sneaker News for new information as it becomes available and to find out if a Presto is set to be involved.One of the strangest Air Jordan 3 samples in history is the infamous ※clear sole§ version of the White/Cement colorway. This unreleased sample dates back to the early 2000s and obviously has never released to the public, but according to zsneakerheadz a slightly modified version is set to release during the 2018 All-Star Weekend. Perhaps as a tribute to the 30th Anniversary of Michael Jordan*s iconic Dunk Contest, this Air Jordan 3 will likely have the same ※White/Cement§ color-blocking, but is said to feature a graphic print on the upper. We*re a month away from the mid-February classic, so stay tuned for updates as we near one of the biggest weekends in sneakers of the year.
    Portland is coming off a 123-114 win over Minnesota behind 31 points from All-Star point guard Damian Lillard. The Blazers scored 43 in the third quarter to take control of the game.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.

  • Mike Zimmer is in the market for a starting quarterback and an offensive coordinator. Two job openings linked closely together that will have a significant impact on the direction the Vikings take following an NFC Championship Game appearance. Zimmer has to get this right. Both decisions. Often when teams go searching for a quarterback and offensive coordinator, something went horribly wrong. They're usually starting over. That's not Zimmer's reality. His team is built to contend now. The Vikings' no-show dud in Philadelphia won't lower expectations by meaningful degree, as long as Zimmer and general manager Rick Spielman don't whiff on those two pressing needs 每 quarterback and offensive coordinator.That's why Bill Belichick credited one current and one former member of the coaching staff, Josh McDaniels and Mike Lombardi, with helping the Patriots land those two key offensive cogs a week-and-a-half before taking on the Eagles in Super Bowl LII.Amendola, who scored two fourth-quarter touchdowns in the AFC title game against the Jaguars to help the Patriots overcome a 10-point deficit, spent just 2011 season with McDaniels (then the Rams offensive coordinator), and Amendola was hurt for the majority of that year, playing in just one regular-season game.Though that doesn't seem like much, Belichick said McDaniels' experience with Amendola was critical in knowing he was a player the Patriots should pursue. Without any assurances that Wes Welker would be back in 2013, that's exactly what they did. Really, the light went on with Josh," Belichick said Wednesday. "Josh was here. Josh had had him in St. Louis, and we saw a good player in St. Louis, but you didn't see all the things behind the scenes that you kind of can see when you actually have the player on your team.Josh saw that, and he made me aware of -- us aware -- of what all the things that Danny does, and how well he does [them], and what his skills were and so forth. That's kind of when it started, and once we got him here, then all that became evident to everybody who works with him."

  • Perhaps the most lovable pro-athlete kid in history has made another appearance in a creative way. Steph Curry turned back the clock to by wearing his first signature shoe, the UA Curry 1, in a black/white tuxedo-esque colorway featuring adorable images of his daughters Riley and Ryan. The shoes were possible created by Under Armour*s Icon, which allows for full customization of the shoes. This online platform not only allows you select colors and materials, but you can also select an image to impose on the upper itself. See more images of Steph*s custom kicks below.嚗
