We Got Next: Portland Trail Blazers Submit Bid to Host Future All-Star Game

LaMarcus Aldridge

The Portland Trail Blazers have never hosted All-Star Weekend. In fact, they’re one of only a handful of current NBA cities yet to host the annual event. That’s a shame because, as any frothy-mouthed local will tell you, Rip City offers so many unique experiences that they’re almost impossible to catalogue.

Undaunted by that near-Himalayan task, that’s precisely what we’ll aim to accomplish here. Read More »

The 2014-2015 NBA schedule is finally here. The most glaring and revelatory takeaway? That the league has extended the All-Star break to a full week this season. This comes on the heels of a report from late July that commissioner Adam Silver was considering this very action due to overwhelming encouragement from the players to do so. Read More »

The Return Of UNDRCRWN x Master P Limited “Big Baller” T-Shirt

UNDRCRWN "Big Baller"

UNDRCRWN left a big imprint on NBA All-Star Weekend in New Orleans. Baron Davis, rocking the clothing line’s Winter 2013 collection, was featured in a two-part vignette on “Inside the NBA” centering on his attempted NBA comeback. (A spoof of Steve Nash‘s Grantland comeback video.) You might remember it–it was pretty amazing. UNDRCRWN also released the “Big Baller” t-shirt, an ode to Master P and the old school Cash Money “Pen & Pixel” album covers. Read More »

Video: Dwyane Wade’s Special Edition All-Star Li-Ning Way Of Wade 2 Release

Li-Ning Way Of Wade 2.0 "All-Star"

On the court, Dwyane Wade didn’t make a huge impact in the NBA All-Star Game, playing just 12 minutes. (He was saving himself for last night against the Thunder… and it worked!) But he had a big weekend nonetheless. Since joining Li-Ning and starting the Way of Wade line, we’ve looked forward to seeing what Flash would be rocking on his feet during the midseason classic. For the second straight year, he didn’t disappoint. Read More »

The 10 Best NBA Players Who May Never Be All-Stars

Brandon Jennings

Before the 2014 NBA All-Star Weekend, we knew which studs would be playing, but that was never the fun part. We’d rather talk about who should’ve made it. Did you really think Anthony Davis deserved to be an All-Star before DeMarcus Cousins? The season that Cousins is having still blows my mind that he didn’t make the All-Star team, although we all know why: His team is terrible. Read More »

Perhaps you remember the amazing GIF that Portland artist Pat Truby created for Paul George‘s insane in-game 360-degree windmill from heaven. Truby created the same animation for the Damian Lillard and John Wall dunks that wowed us at the 2014 NBA Slam Dunk Contest. Read More »

There is so much a professional athlete can do with their fame and money to help local communities in need. But it’s not often that we see something that warms our hearts quite as much as the recent surprise Dwyane Wade and Gatorade dreamed up for Riverdale High School in New Orleans. Wade and Gatorade unveiled an amazing treat for Riverdale’s basketball team over All-Star weekend, and the student’s beatific response got us all teary-eyed when we watched. Read More »
