Reebok is coming on strong towards the end of the summer, and while we can expect some killer retro releases from them in the near future, here’s a look at their latest product. It’s called the Reebok Sublite ProRise, and it’s a sneaker we can expect to see Jason Terry and Jameer Nelson wear. You can snag a pair at Dick’s Sporting Goods, FinishLine and Reebok.com for $100.

Kobe Talks Retirement; O.J. Mayo Finds A Team

It wasn’t easy, but a W is a W. Team USA struggled early against Brazil and were down by as many as 10. A struggle? They were having problems just converting layups. Russell Westbrook was missing breakaway lay ins; the rest of the team couldn’t make a shot in the lane. At the end of the first quarter, it was 27-17 Brazil, and we thought Coach K might break a blood vessel. Everything was going wrong for the USA early, even the Kiss Cam. Barack Obama and Michelle were in the building, and they were put on the Kiss Cam. Michelle refused the president twice, even after he went in for the kill, and the crowd wasn’t feeling it. Obama was swagging out all night in Under Armour – at a Nike event – but it took him a second try at the Kiss Cam to give his woman a smooch. Read More »

Jameer Nelson

Unrestricted free agent Jameer Nelson, who has spent his entire eight-year career in Orlando, has decided to return to the Magic, signing a three-year deal worth an undisclosed amount. Nelson spoke to the Orlando Sentinel about the decision: Read More »

The NBA’s Top 10 Crossovers Of The Season

Jameer Nelson

Everyone knows I have an awkward obsession with Deron Williams‘ crossover. It is definitely the best move in the game, so I’m a little surprised and pissed off it didn’t take home the No. 1 spot on this list. Read More »

Rajon Rondo Shows His Double-Edged Sword; Denver Survives Kobe Bryant

The good and bad of Rajon Rondo surfaced in the final 10 seconds of Atlanta’s 87-86 Game 5 win against Boston. With Boston down one, the point stole the inbounds pass and came racing up court with a chance to win. Off a switch, he was matched up with Al Horford, dribbled in place for a few seconds, tried to go baseline, lost the ball, and then threw it to Kevin Garnett even as the buzzer sounded. Rondo never even got a shot off, and thus all he did (13 points, 12 assists, five steals) won’t be remembered. Read More »

Miami Gets A Win In A Playoff Atmosphere; Orlando Is Falling Apart At The Seams

Three-thousand miles away and two big games to start a Sunday afternoon. … Jeff Van Gundy isn’t coming through that door wrapped around someone’s ankle, and Allan Houston won’t be joining, either. Still, that can’t temper a playoff matchup we’d love to see that was previewed Sunday: Heat vs. Knicks. The Garden has seen its high points this season (think Linsanity and ‘Melo’s Easter blowout) but we’d love to watch this series once it gets back to the World’s Most Famous Arena after how Sunday’s game looked until late.

Jason Terry Will Break One Of The NBA’s Longest Streaks Tonight

Jason Terry

Expect Jason Terry to look different for the Dallas Mavericks’ matchup with the Orlando Magic tonight. The loser of a bet with Jameer Nelson, Terry will play for the first time without his trademark headband and high socks. Teamed up with rapper Jadakiss, Terry took on the team of Nelson and comedian Bill Bellamy in a CrossFit relay, which consisted of a shuttle run, burpee box jumps, air squats, and ring rows.

The Pacers Send A Message To The East; Carmelo Anthony On The Comeback

Danny Granger

Are they for real? We guess we could’ve said that about either one of the teams taking the floor in Indiana last night. The Pacers beheaded the Heat by 15, and Miami has now lost two in a row by double figures, and are just 8-6 since the All-Star break. Title contenders? They need to get their heads out of the sand first. Then on the other side, the Pacers made a statement: Don’t overlook us. They almost had Miami calling for the mercy rule on the boards, destroying them 49-33. Read More »

Channing Frye

Beast of the Night: Channing Frye posted 26 points, nine rebounds, two assists, one steal, four blocks and five three-pointers last night. He shot 56 percent (10-18) from the floor and 100 percent (1-1) from the free-throw line, and had two turnovers. After a poor start to the season, Frye has picked things up since February. He’s been a top 70 asset so far this season, which is about in line with expectations. Read More »
