Bow Wow Loses $1000 to Kobe Bryant

Posted by Jo$h on July 11, 2011

Why Bow even thought he stood a chance is hilarious. Kobe spotted him 10 points and still took it easily. As he should have though, since Bow Wow is only like 3 ft tall.

NCAA: UConn defeats Butler, 53-41, to Win Men’s National Championship

Posted by Just10 on April 5, 2011

After watching the highlights, it looks like I didn’t miss much of a game! UConn defeated Butler, 53 – 41, to give the school their third National Championship since 1999. However, at halftime of the game the score was only 22-19! Butler only scored 19 in the second half and shot a miserable 18.8 % in field goals while UConn only shot 34.5%. Kemba Walker finished the game with 16 points and was named the tournament MOP! Jim Calhoun became the oldest coach to win a men’s basketball championship and is now tied with Bob Knight for fifth most all time behind.

Jordan Brand x Ray Allen- Record Breaking (Video)

Posted by Just10 on February 11, 2011

Yesterday, Celtics guard Ray Allen reached and eclipsed the all time record for 3 pointers made in an NBA career. Jordan Brand decided to put together a little video (before it actually happened) discussing the Ray Allen’s achievement and how Jordan Brand has helped him reach it. The historic moment came against the rival Los Angeles Lakers and with the former record holder, retired guard Reggie Miller, calling the game! Ray Allen received a huge standing ovation from the Celtics crowd that included his wife and his mother who never miss a game and even congratulations from the Laker players for the achievement.

Luckily, the Lakers were able to come together in the second half and beat the Celtics, 92-86, and continue on their Grammy roadtrip with a 3-0 record.

Nike Officially Introduces The Nike Zoom Kobe VI

Posted by Just10 on December 8, 2010

We have all seen tons of pics and colorways already, but Nike made things official the other day:

Nike and Kobe Bryant announced the debut of the Nike Zoom Kobe VI, a performance basketball shoe inspired by Bryant’s on-court alter ego, the Black Mamba. The design draws cues from the fearsome snake and incorporates key performance elements in a low-profile shoe that weighs just 10.6 ounces in a men’s US size 9.

“The Kobe VI is a very character driven shoe with the alter ego of the Black Mamba prominently featured,” said Bryant. “We continue to evolve the technology to make it a performance based shoe, but aesthetically you haven’t seen a shoe pop like this before. It brings to life what drives me.”

Nike Performance Footwear Creative Director Eric Avar led a team of creatives who worked with Bryant to bring the Black Mamba to life in the Nike Zoom Kobe VI. The shoe’s upper features unique polyurethane “islands” that emulate a snake’s skin and increase or decrease in size throughout the shoe to protect against abrasion and increase durability exactly where needed. To add a lighthearted spin and play off the reptile’s deadly venom, “Venomenon” is inscribed on the front outsole.

“The Black Mamba to Kobe means being one of the deadliest predators on the planet,” Avar said. “That’s his approach to every game – he’s very calculating and he’s very quick.”

A customized fit
Bryant challenged designers to build a shoe with amazing fit. Nike responded with an innovative dual-layer memory foam sockliner that conforms to the foot for a one-of-a-kind custom fit. A Phylon injected midsole adds cushioning for a more anatomically correct fit, and Nike Zoom units in the heel and forefoot provide additional comfort on court.

To emphasize Bryant’s lethal on-court play, Nike’s team of designers built off the success of the Nike Zoom Kobe V shoe’s lightweight, low-cut profile. This year’s shoe features reduced midsole thickness to keep the foot closer to the ground for improved stability and better court feel. The shoe fulfills Bryant’s desire for a true low-top, similar to that of a running shoe or soccer boot, with a low collar design.

The basketball shoe also employs Nike’s innovative Flywire technology in a new, three-layer construction. Inside the shoe a layer of mesh lines the foot, followed by a layer of Flywire and topped off by another layer of breathable mesh with polyurethane islands for abrasion resistance. This unique construction is lighter, more breathable and more conformable to the foot than previous Flywire designs in the Kobe series.

To ensure excellent traction, the Nike Zoom Kobe VI has a solid rubber outsole with a Black Mamba inspired modified herringbone pattern. Certain China editions of the shoe include XDR, or Extra Durable Rubber, for sustained durability against the rough surfaces of outdoor basketball courts.

Blending science and art
The Nike Zoom Kobe VI emerged directly from conversations between Nike’s team and Bryant to ensure the shoe best suited his singular style of play.

“I always talk about good design being a balance between science and art, and one of the great things about working with Kobe is he always grounds every conversation in that concept, starting with the science,” said Avar.

 

The Nike Zoom Kobe VI launches in retail stores and online at nikestore.com on December 26, 2010. NIKEiD will launch an exclusive sneak preview of the Nike Zoom Kobe VI iD available to Facebook Fans on December 10 at facebook.com/nikeid. Customized versions will be available for sale on December 24 at NIKEiD.com.

Props to Sneakerfiles!
