We already know who is starting the 2015 NBA All-Star Game, and noon today was the deadline for the coach’s picks sliding in seven more players per conference with two more guards, three more frontcourt players and two wildcards. With the East’s best team, the Hawks, whiffing on a starting nod (Jeff Teague finished eighth in the backcourt fan voting, and Paul Millsap was 10th in the East’s frontcourt), some are predicting four Hawks fill out the seven reserve spots in the East.

And this past Tuesday, we got our first look at what the Los Fearless 2-on-2 game is all about. At 9 p.m., our Dime crew in the tournament, Birdman’s Tattoo Advisors, arrived at USC’s Galen Center just as Nike requested we arrive “ready to play.” Read More »
NBA players creating entertaining videos to get fans to vote them into the All-Star game is nothing new. The real challenge now lies in players being able to top what’s already been done in order to stand out and endear themselves to fans. By those standards, Rudy Gay has done a pretty good job. We just got this video from one of his people. Check it out and let us know what you think after the jump…
Just in time for all of the NBA All-Star 2010 festivities, we’re dropping the digital version of Dime #55 on the site today. You can GO HERE to flip through and read the new issue of the magazine.
For the cover shoot and story, we got up with Kobe Bryant in L.A. back in December, at the launch of the Nike Zoom Kobe V.

True, Tiger Woods clearly has other things to worry about right now, but this is crazy. We were only in Dallas for NBA All-Star Weekend for a few hours when we spotted these for sale, not on the street or in some shady spot, but in the hotel gift shop!
