Nike Unveils Kyrie 1 & We Test Them On the Court

Kyrie Irving with the Nike KYRIE 1

When talking to famed Nike designer Leo Chang on Wednesday night, we were struck by something he said about Kyrie Irving‘s cotinuous movement on the hardwood. After Chang watched film and broke down what Irving was looking for in his first signature shoe, the KYRIE 1, he saw that Irving’s feet would sometimes get almost parallel to the floor on a particularly quick cut. While we don’t have a fraction of the quickness — or really anything else related to Cavs point guard — in our game, we did get to try the Kyrie 1 later in the night. Read More »

Kenny Smith, Charles Barkley

Charles Barkley made waves earlier this week when he described the looters in Ferguson, Missouri as “scumbags.” His co-host on TNT’s “Inside the NBA,” former Rocket sharpshooter Kenny Smith, then wrote an op-ed for USA Today in opposition in Chuck’s comments.

Video: Mark Cuban’s “Inside The NBA” Interview After Hoodie Comments

Mark Cuban

Last week, Mark Cuban spoke at a business conference in Nashville, and the Donald Sterling story was brought up. Cuban said he would hypocritically vote to force a Sterling sale, then used an unfortunate example to try and show how we all suffer from racism and bigotry. The response to his “black kid in a hoodie” illustration — mirroring the real life Trayvon Martin tragedy — was anger, and Cuban spoke about his comments with the “Inside the NBA” crew before tonight’s Game 4 in Oklahoma City.

Paul Pierce

Why do we watch? If the NBA were predictable, it would simply be boring. Yet, as we all know just from this postseason alone, expect the unexpected. The Oklahoma City Thunder and Washington Wizards each blew double-digit second-half leads to their opponents this weekend, allowing the Los Angeles Clippers and Indiana Pacers to either tie the series or take a commanding series lead.

Kenny Smith Ethers Chris Webber

Kenny Smith

Charles Barkley and Shaquille O’Neal are always clowning on Kenny Smith during TNT’s NBA coverage. He’s an easy target: the Jet wasn’t a Hall of Fame player and he’s a smack-talking little guard. Smith is like the kid brother on set, so when Chris Webber mocked Smith’s memorable opening run to “Kenny’s Pictures,” the reaction was predictable. Read More »
