TAG: Under Armour
I told you the other day, but now it’s official: Under Armour Basketball finally has a starting center. It was announced today that UA has entered into a multi-year partnership with the DeAndre Jordan. Jordan joins Brandon Jennings, Greivis Vasquez, Kemba Walker and Derrick Williams on UA’s roster of NBA athletes, and will make his regular season debut in the Under Armour Micro G Funk on Christmas Day.

The new year brings lot of “new” things into our lives – new experiences, new people, new friends, and maybe most importantly, new kicks.
Our friends over at Foot Locker Unlocked asked us to put together our list of the Most Anticipated Sneaker Releases for 2012. It wasn’t easy, but we narrowed it down to our Top 10. Check out the full list here.
Since introducing you to Under The Armour, we’ve seen Brandon Jennings do pretty much everything except play an actual NBA game. In the season finale, Jennings arrives in New York City as part of the “Are You From HERE?” tour. In-between games, Brandon spends some time in the lab with Ryan Leslie and stops by HOT 97.

Along with the NBA lockout came an inevitable domino effect: Owners and players couldn’t reach an agreement, so the players couldn’t play. Thus, the executives couldn’t sell tickets. The vendors couldn’t push products. The fans had no game action to rehash. The bloggers couldn’t blog (as well). And the critics and sportscasters were forced to push golf, tennis and soccer onto us – like we actually care about that nonsense. Fortunately, the recently agreed upon labor contract should ensure that the worst is behind us. Yes – after what felt like a whopping 149 years (not days), the NBA is finally back. But not all was cause for complaints during the extended offseason. Our beloved sportswear companies, responsible for lacing us up with the finest on-court and off-court accents, couldn’t quit their day jobs. So we were repeatedly reminded that basketball never stops. Word to Nike. Read More »
Under Armour Basketball has been rolling out individual TV spots from their tremendous “Are You From HERE?” campaign with their guys over the last few weeks (Watch Brandon Jennings’ here, Kemba Walker’s here and Derrick Williams’ here).
This morning we got our hands on the latest – a culmination of the campaign with all three athletes. As expected, it’s really good. Watch it after the jump and let us know what you think… Read More »
As Sean pointed out the other day, Under Armour has been killing it during the lockout with their new “Are You From Here?” campaign and tour. And in their latest vignette, a two-minute spot that premiered on SportsCenter the other night, UA follows Kemba Walker as he’s back home in Soundview and the other neighborhoods in The Bronx and NYC that helped him become who he is today.

UCF didn’t want to talk Big East. They were also apparently sick of hearing about UConn’s 16-game winning streak as well. Whether they make the jump to the Big East soon or not, the Knights let their play do the talking: we deserve to be there. Down 17 with 16 minutes to go against the defending champs, a team that hadn’t lost a game in seemingly forever, and sporting probably the best backcourt in the country… none of it fazed UCF. Behind Marcus Jordan (yes, the son of MJ) and Keith Clanton (both dropped 20, Jordan added seven rebounds and assists), they stormed back and beat the No. 4-ranked Huskies 68-63. Read More »
