Inspired by his life story, each of the seven shoes in the collection represents a different stop on his distinct path to the NBA. Check ‘em out: Read More »
While we have much more coverage coming your way from Wednesday night’s exclusive event in New York City, we figured we’d bring you some good news first: Under Armour is going on tour.

And while you’ll hear all about what went down tomorrow, including interviews with Brandon Jennings, Kemba Walker, Derrick Williams, and Greivis Vasquez, we figured we’d give you a sneak peek of their new commercial spot for those of you that couldn’t make it.
Baltimore’s Aquille Carr, the country’s most dynamic and exciting high school player, continues to burnish his growing legend while fighting crime in his spare time.
