Michael Jordan Apologizes After Tony Wroten’s Nike Sole Falls Off

Tony Wroten, Evan Turner

Within the last week, Sixers guard Tony Wroten became the third NBA player this year to have his sneaker self-combust in the middle of a game. During Indiana’s visit to Philly last Friday, Wroten’s sole fell right off a pair of his Air Jordan 10 “varsity red” kicks originally released in 2005. It was the third sneaker to self-destruct this season and led to some pun-tastic Post headlines — though we abstained. Now it seems the man the sneaker brand is named after, Michael Jordan, has personally apologized for the now-defunct sneaker. Read More »

The 30 Best Basketball Commercials Of All Time

Kobe Bryant

Who remembers the Y2K craze? The world was supposed to end, or at the least, society was supposed to collapse. We got a terrible Will Smith album (Or if you were a misguided soul like me, you probably liked it.). We were all planning to end up like John Cusack in 2012, flying planes through buildings and angling for tickets to some special ship. But the best thing to ever came out of the year 2000 was the Sportscenter commercial. Who remembers it? Mark McGwire smashing computers. Charley Steiner, with a tie around his forehead, yelling, “FOLLOW ME! FOLLOW ME TO FREEDOM!” Read More »
