Nike Vetos Tribute Sneaker After Iverson Objects

Nike Zoom Flight 96 Allen Iverson Tribute

For his entire career, Allen Iverson has been sponsored by Reebok. The iconic Question and Answer lines owed most of their popularity to AI’s ability to equate his on-court brilliance with off-court popularity. Nike was going to release the Nike Zoom Flight iteration commemorating the 1996 Draft class, and Iverson got his own tongue-in-cheek commemorative shoe. Well, AI didn’t take kindly to his likeness being used by a competitor and so Nike will not offer the Nike Zoom Flight 96 to the public. Read More »

Kevin Love On Role With Cavs: “I’m Just Trying To Find Myself In This Offense”

Kevin Love, LeBron James

Lost in the Cleveland Cavaliers’ overall mediocrity to open the season have been Kevin Love’s struggles. The former Minnesota Timberwolves go-to guy knew he’d face an adjustment playing with LeBron James and Kyrie Irving, but surely didn’t think it would be so daunting. Love is shooting below 39 percent from the field over the Cavs’ first 10 games, and has the lowest true shooting percentage (54.9) and PER (17.55) since his rookie year. He reached a nadir in last night’s loss to the San Antonio Spurs, too, scoring a season-low 10 points on 12 shots. Read More »
