After defeating the Chicago Bulls on Christmas Day 119-100, Kawhi Leonard of the San Antonio Spurs was spotted wearing some pretty crazy Air Jordans.
“The Claw” is seen in the picture above wearing a gold pair of Air Jordan 11s that has been completely covered in gold all throughout the upper, including the patent leather, laces, and even the branding. The only contrast comes with a white midsole and icy blue translucent outsole.
Do you like these 11s better than the all-gold Air Jordan 12s that Kawhi was spotted with earlier this Summer?
A Christmas caroling service in Sri Lanka found itself embarrassed, after they accidentally printed and handed out thousands of copies of Tupac’s lyrics during a Christmas celebration.
The lyrics to Tupac’s classic Hip-Hop song “Hail Mary” were printed out at the 2016 Catholic Joy to the World Festival, which is one of Sri Lanka’s largest Christmas celebrations.
According to The Independent, almost 1,000 programs were handed out to attendees with Tupac’s lyrics, instead of the 15th Century Catholic prayer.
The event was billed as a fundraiser, organized by the Archdiocese of the City of Colombo.
NBA Commissioner Adam Silver seems to be giving the Player’s Association more autonomy than ever when it comes to formalizing league regulations. This is in comparison to Silver’s predecessor David Stern, who lived up to his surname for how he ran the league for 30 years and assessed fines for what he defined as player and coach misconduct.
Under the new collective bargaining agreement, Silver is allowing a more democratic approach for the players to negotiate rulebook changes, the player dress code, making political statements, and criticizing officials after games.
According to Mitch Lawrence of Sporting News, Silver is giving NBA players a hotline to which they can offer their two cents about a referee.
Jordan Brand’s holiday 2016 lineup will cap off with the release of this Air Jordan 6 Black Cat, in addition to the GS-exclusive AJ 6 Purple Dynasty.
As suggested, a stealthy black leather composition with enlarged perforations to promote sufficient ventilation comprises its overall upper. The perforated portion also bears a reflective element to increase its visibility in low-lit conditions, and it’s activated when exposed to flash.
Unlike the all-black AJ 3 and AJ 4 renditions — this variation is contrasted with pristine white accents gracing the midsole unit and Jumpman branding. Although not shown in this gallery, a graphic of its respective theme is also placed on the insoles.
Priced at $190, you can buy a pair at select Nike and JB stockists on Saturday, December 31st, 2016.
Amidst holiday celebrations, Hip Hop mourned the death of George Michael today (December 25) as the legendary singer passed away at his home in Oxfordshire, England.
“It is with great sadness that we can confirm our beloved son, brother and friend George passed away peacefully at home over the Christmas period,” his publicist Connie Filippello said in a statement to the New York Times.
Michael was a member of the duo Wham! with Andrew Ridgeley throughout the 1980s and embarked on a solo career after. He became a pop culture icon for his artistry and vibrant stage presence.
Much of his music inspired those in the Hip Hop community. His 1984 song “Careless Whisper” was sampled on songs featuring Nas, Outkast and Silkk the Shocker and Future used it on his 2014 song “Rock Star” with Nicki Minaj. Freddie Gibbs sampled 2004’s “Amazing” in his 2015 track “Careless.”
This caps off a year where many legends, including Prince, David Bowie and Phife Dawg passed away.
Stephon Marbury has been out of the NBA since 2009. His second act as a basketball messiah in China gives him no reason to feel any regret about leaving the NBA behind. But Starbury seems upset that he left the league without much choice, and thinks he knows what him a pariah early in his professional career, long before he got to his worst years in the NBA with the Knicks.
According to an article in ESPN’s The Undefeated published Tuesday, Marbury believes that his career began to decline after he demanded a trade from the team that drafted him in 1996, the Minnesota Timberwolves.
Marbury stated, “I remember those days when it wasn’t fun with what I contributed on and off the court. I thought the league was mad about me messing up their money in Minnesota.”
Marbury said that he demanded a trade from the team after the 1998-99 season, a move which ended his dynamic duo with a young Kevin Garnett. The former NBA All-Star also stated that he was eager to leave Minnesota because it was way too frigid, which caused his car to do too many unwanted donuts while driving on the snow-filled, icey roads.

One of the most highly coveted Air Jordan 4 colorways of all time is set to release to the public next year. Yes, I’m talking about the Air Jordan 4 Motorsport.
When the Air Jordan 4 Motorsport initially released, it didn’t drop as a GR to the public. As a matter of fact, the shoe was only given to members of the Jordan Brand Motorsport team. So if you weren’t a part of that exclusive club, you probably don’t own a pair. For some reason (which I’m not mad at), Jordan Brand has decided to release the Air Jordan 4 Motorsport to the public. This Motorsport 4 will come with a White leather upper, offset by the hits of Black and Royal Blue placed throughout the shoe. Mars Blackmon branding also appears on the side of the heel to give it that official look and feel.
