fake yeezy kids boys size 4,¡°We have nothing to announce at this time,¡± Triple H told AP after their dinner. ¡°But she¡¯s a huge fan of what we do and she¡¯s incredibly interested in what we do and the opportunities that lie there. We¡¯re fans of hers and incredibly interested in what those opportunities could be with us. But there¡¯s a lot of things to walk through. We¡¯re talking. We¡¯re having conversations.¡±! We¡¯re less than one month away from the official release of the Air Jordan 3 ¡°Black/Cement¡± with the famed Nike Air branding on the heel. Confirmed to release on February 17th in full family sizes,?The motivation is obvious. Replacing the much-maligned Love and still-recuperating Thomas with two All-Star-caliber players would do wonders for a defense that is a fraction of a point from being the NBA¡¯s worst, even if an almost 33-year-old Gasol is no longer the All-NBA/All-Defensive player he once was and the 30-year-old Conley¡¯s latest injury (a sore left Achilles) has kept him out since mid-November. Pair them with LeBron James, and Grit ¡®n¡¯ Grind suddenly takes on new meaning.As reported last week by Marc Stein of The New York Times, the Cavs see two-time All-Defensive First-Teamer Jordan as just the sort of ¡°elite rim protector and rebounder¡± they need to clean up the messes created by their turnstile perimeter defenders. Williams, whose thrilling bid for a surprise All-Star berth came up short, would help revive what¡¯s quietly been a bottom-10 offense over the past month by providing what Cleveland hoped Thomas would: instant scoring, dangerous pull-up shooting and supplementary playmaking to lighten LeBron¡¯s load.You¡¯d assume the Clips won¡¯t feel super-compelled to cut bait on Jordan (and even Williams, despite his expiring status) now that they¡¯re in the midst of a surge that¡¯s put them back in the Western Conference playoff picture. Woj reported earlier this month that they ¡°aren¡¯t set on trading Jordan at all costs,¡± preferring the idea of standing pat to ¡°bringing back marginal draft picks with heavy protections.¡± If the Clippers can haggle the desperate Cavs down to minimal protection on the Nets pick, though, it¡¯s got a chance to be waaaaay better than ¡°marginal.¡± Jettisoning Williams and Jordan would also go a long way toward submarining this year¡¯s squad, thus improving the value of the Clips¡¯ own 2018 first (which, unlike next year¡¯s, they control) in the final season before lottery reform hits to change the math on tanking.. Minnesotans, coping not only with defeat but also the prospect of hosting those fans for the Super Bowl, are particularly peeved. They¡¯re alleging hat thievery, urine-related incidents and ¡°random acts of violence.¡± They¡¯re not going to let the storyline die. And in that regard, their quarterback is helping them out..If your a Jordan Brand fanatic, a die-hard Knicks fan, or both, you can head over to your local Jordan Brand stockist and grab this upcoming Air Jordan 5 ¡°Knicks¡± on September 8th for 0 USD. Stay tuned to Sneaker News for any updated release details and actual images as the become available.On the 12th, the Nike Shox made its return to shelves for the first time in the long time, as the piston-like columns that give it its signature look are ready to excite sneakerheads once again. Given the Shox Gravity monicker, the newly engineered model is ready to be rolled out in a second colorway that sports a primarily black construction with a quick hit of green surrounding the aforementioned columns on its midsole. Its newly designed lacing system trends in the direction that has become popular in the industry that grants its wearer easy slip-on access. While there is currently no specific timetable for release, you can expect this New Shox Gravity to touch down in the Spring.. Earlier this month, it was confirmed that the famed G.O.O.D. Music rapper, 2Chainz had a collaborative project in the works with the illustrious Versace brand. While its chained outsole was shown prior, a full look at the boisterous offering has now become available as it was debuted during Milan¡¯s Fashion Week. Fittingly dubbed the ¡°Chain Reaction¡±, the wild styling will be available in six colors, ranging from simpler patterns to more complex designs with animal hair infused onto the upper..The Nike Air Max 270 was designed as a modernized blend of the Air Max 93 and the Air 180 ¨C two icons of the early 1990s that debuted new styles of Air Max heel units. Boasting the tallest Air bag in brand history, the Air Max 270 has sneakerheads excited thanks to its sleek design and inspiring colorways, but it looks like there will be another style from the 270 category coming in early March. This alternate model features the same cushioning unit and engineered mesh materials, but with an upper with far more Air 180 DNA; this is evident in the classic ¡°180¡± logo on the tongue, the Nike Air on the heel, and the overlay that mimics the original model from 1991. What are your thoughts on this new design? Stay tuned for release dates as we near Air Max Day on March 26th.Timberland¡¯s resurgent 6¡å Field Boot continues to be one of the brand¡¯s go-to options for keeping feet protected in all types of terrains. Already known for its versatility, the 6¡å Field Boot is dropping soon in a new ¡°Crocadylian¡± colorway that blends the rugged styling with some more luxurious details in the exotic dark green croc-skin upper, metallic eyelets, and black leather ankle pads. Of course the shoes are entirely waterproof, so these are actually suitable in any setting. See the detailed images of the Timberland 6¡å Field Boot ¡°Crocadylian¡± below and stay tuned for the official release on Timberland.com on January 19th.. Then again, there¡¯s some logic to starting small. (Well, starting big. You know what I mean.) The holdover quarter of James, Love, Thompson and Smith haven¡¯t gotten much run with Isaiah yet, but they¡¯ve got plenty of experience occupying these specific roles ¡ª Thompson screening, diving, rebounding and protecting the paint; Love eating up first-quarter post-ups, picking and popping, and spotting up in transition; Smith filling the corners; LeBron doing everything ¡ª alongside a volume-shooting point guard. This one¡¯s just shorter, and not at full speed yet..Jordan Brand¡¯s 2018 Black History Month celebration will be centered around the colors of the Pan-African Flag. Red, Green, and Black are perfectly represented from the ankle collar all the way down to the tri-colored outsole on this updated version of the 1985 icon. While all of the Swoosh and Jumpman BHM selections are expected to arrive at retailers early next year, this particular iteration is currently available early. If you cannot wait, you can head over to eBay now and grab a pair for 0 USD, however, sizing is very limited at this time. Nike also has plans for a Vapormax and Air Force 1 High selection that further the same aesthetic achieved here by the flexible Jordan 1 offering.Jordan Brand and Nike will soon turn its attention to the annual Chinese New Year celebration as several footwear options will become available in January. One anchoring visual theme will be the blooming red and white flower embroidery seen on the heels of this Air Jordan 6 Retro as well as the Nike Kyrie 4 that was previewed earlier this week. Fireworks will also serve as an enticing graphic as well, while the black, gold, and red colorway speaks to the traditional colors of the holiday. The Air Jordan 6 ¡°Chinese New Year¡± won¡¯t drop until January, but they¡¯re available now in select sizes at Stadium Goods.. And Browns General Manager John Dorsey wasn¡¯t ready to narrow the field too much this week when asked at the Senior Bowl about the possibility of using the top pick on one.. You might look at the way Cleveland¡¯s lagged since Thomas¡¯ entry into the lineup, and at Thomas¡¯ individual struggles to knock down shots or hold up defensively, and wonder why Lue didn¡¯t decide to move the former Boston Celtics All-Star to the bench. Maybe in favor of, say, reserve Jose Calderon, a steady caretaker who started on the ball during the season¡¯s lone stretch of sustained success. Cleveland went 16-6 in 22 Calderon starts between Nov. 20, 2017, and Jan. 3, 2018, the last game before Thomas¡¯ comeback..Manziel, who is still waiting to see if he¡¯ll get chance in the Canadian Football League, has been tweeting often about his comeback lately. He hasn¡¯t played a football game since the end of the 2015 NFL season.. Nike¡¯s LeBron 7 ¡°Hardwood Classic¡± PE¡¯s are inarguably some of the most iconic and most sought after PE¡¯s in the King¡¯s signature line, as the resale market demands prices upwards of ,000 for the ¡°Alternate¡± colorway. Now, the Swoosh is emulating the success of those drops wth a blue and orange version of the LeBron 15. It is not the first time Nike has replicated the retro Cavaliers¡¯ blue and orange color scheme, as it has been seen on other models the likes of the LeBron 14 and the Solder 10 as well.. "And so maybe someone coming on here, staff can do that. Scott [O'Brien] when he came from Denver or Joe [Judge] when he came from Alabama in the SEC. You get that occasionally, but by and large most of us have been here. Matt [Patricia], Brian Flores, Dante [Scarnecchia] - we haven't seen any other team, only teams we've practiced against. So, that knowledge base is limited. If you get it from somewhere else, you get it. If you don't, go with what you have and do the best you can."Despite being seen ringside at the Mae Young Classic in 2017 and in Los Angeles dining with WWE COO Paul ¡°Triple H¡± Levesque earlier this month, Rousey has shot down any speculation that she would be competing in the 30-woman Royal Rumble match this weekend in Philadelphia..The impressive Nike Zoom Fly SP is coming out with new colorways this January as this stylish ¡°Royal¡± colorway hits select stores across the globe. Featuring a clean white and blue color way, this trendy running shoe maintains the flashy flair with the transparent upper, racing track lines, and the impeccable branding by way of the forefoot swoosh. For now, only smaller sizes are available, so this may be a women¡¯s exclusive release. We¡¯ll wait for larger sizes to appear, but if you¡¯re a smaller-footed runner, get a pair now at Foot Patrol.. Under Armour¡¯s ongoing efforts to break into the lifestyle footwear category made its biggest mark in 2017 as the brand officially announced a partnership with A$AP Rocky last June. We¡¯ve yet to see anything come to light from that partnership, but it¡¯s looking like something¡¯s in the works thanks to this leaked photo that reveals the Harlem-based style icon and a sample of an Under Armour shoe. The upper is a clear take on the retro-style running shoe trend that¡¯s sure to hit an apex in 2017, while the midsole is from the Forge 1 shoe from UA Sportswear, a shoe that quietly debuted last year. Under Armour confirms that the shoe here is not an A$AP collaboration, but an upcoming model from the aforementioned Forge 1 line. The A$AP Rocky x Under Armour Sportswear collaboration is set to debut this year.. Stepping into the world as a solo retro for the first time is the Air Jordan 18 dressed in a ¡°Hyper Royal¡± color scheme that sports primarily white with metallic silver hardware. As a rare nod to MJ¡¯s Wizards days, the 18 was the last signature sneaker that Jordan laced up in his storied career. Its shroud that houses this models laces is undoubtedly one of the most unique design elements on any Jumpman legacy model. Matching the colorway of the 18, is the Air Jordan 13 in a color scheme that is equally made of primarily white white blue detailing. While this pair is being made available to the public for the first time, it initially debuted as a friends and family colorway, remixing one of the OG 13 colorways by swapping out red with the Hyper Royal you see below. Mark you calendars for January 22nd and March 3rd, when the Air Jordan 18 and Air Jordan 13 ¡°Hyper Royal¡± arrive on shelves.While the release of the initial OFF WHITE x Nike ¡°The Ten¡± collection might be a memory many of you want to forget, it is quite clear that Virgil Abloh isn¡¯t close to done with the Swoosh. One of the more popular silhouettes from the initial drop was the Nike Vapormax that featured a nearly blacked out color scheme if it weren¡¯t for the touches of white on the ¡°AIR¡±, the midfoot Swoosh, and the laces.Two of Nike¡¯s OG Air Max 98 colorways are nearing their return, as the ¡°Gundam¡± and ¡°Navy/Yellow¡± colorways are coming soon to stores. While the sneakers were originally slated to drop on January 18th in the US, stateside retailers have confirmed with us that the release of the navy/yellow is now January 26th, and the ¡°Gundam¡± has been postponed to February 24th. 2018 is gearing up to be a big year for the 98, as it is celebrating its 20th anniversary, which should lead to an uptick of drops for one of the more underutilized Air Max designs. A revived enthusiasm for 1990s Nike originals should lead to a much more successful 2018 campaign for this model, much unlike its re-issue in 2014 that several colorways hit sales racks. European retailers, however, are prepared to role out both OG pairs on January 26th for 0 USD. That may be subject to change, so stay tuned for updates.Last March, Nike invited eight young athletes called the ¡°Imaginairs¡± to their World Headquarters in Beaverton, Oregon. They each got to design a crazy colorway of the Air Max Zero, working closely with Nike designers to fine-tune their concepts into realized concepts. It was the first time the Air Max Zero, which debuted in March of 2015, was redesigned for youths. Leading up to Air Max Day 2018, Nike will launch each of these Air Max Zero colorways in limited quantity; see all release dates below.This week in Sneaker News¡¯ Top Stories, all eight sneakers that are part of the illustrious Dragon Ball Z x adidas collaboration have been revealed as well as their release months.

Last night, in San Antonio, Lebron James scored his 30,000th point becoming the youngest NBA player to do so. Over the course of the last few months there have been quite a few rumors circling about Lebron James¡¯ wanting to join the Houston Rockets. Bleacher Report, a trusted sports source, wrote THIS article talking about the possibility of it happening but the rumors seemed to only circle among Houston Rocket fans. This morning, I received a text from my cousin who lives in Cleveland that the Lebron James trade rumors had begun to surface IN CLEVELAND, too. Now, my cousin is not on the inside and was merely texting me what he¡¯d heard around town amongst his friends and colleagues.

Darvish had an ugly World Series with the Dodgers, while Arrieta had a 3.53 ERA after posting a 2.42 ERA the previous three seasons..¡°In 2013, I had the first pick in the draft with the Kansas City Chiefs, and there really wasn¡¯t a quarterback prospect there,¡± Dorsey told cleveland.com and a small group of reporters here. ¡°Actually in this class there are four to five prospects that make you think at least are they worthy of that position. So now I think what you do is you let the process unfold.¡±. .The Bulls (18-30) know a bit about failing to finish as well. After blowing a 17-point lead in the final minutes of a double-overtime loss to New Orleans on Monday, Chicago was listless in a 115-101 loss to the Philadelphia 76ers in a game the Bulls trailed by as many as 25 points..Fans of this unique Prophere will be able to have their own pair when they arrive at adidas retailers in the US on January 26th with and MSRP of 0 USD.

Following a three-piece collection centered around the Nike Air 180, CDG is taking its talents off-road with this new-look Air Mowabb. Undoubtedly one of Nike¡¯s most influential ACG sneakers, the Mowabb can be seen here dressed in off-white with extra layers of leather added to its existing neoprene to make each individual panel stick out.

The odds are still long, but the more time that goes by, the more likely the starting pitching market gets to a place in which they feel comfortable enough to pounce.. ¡°Players talk about wanting to win and wanting to be a champion, but ultimately they want to do it on their own terms¡±, Rose added. ¡°When you go to San Antonio, guess who¡¯s the CEO of that organization? Gregg Popovich. It¡¯s going to be his way.¡±The difficulty for the Spurs, if Leonard really is determined to leave, is going to be finding a trade partner ready and able to give them anything like equal value in return. It feels like San Antonio might have to go through the same difficulties as the Cavaliers endured with Kyrie Irving last summer.

Shortly after the first look of Nike¡¯s ¡°Reimagined¡± collection, the Swoosh has provided official release information for all five of the remixed Air Force 1 stylings.

But as has been the trend with the Lakers, the ability to find a way to get a stop at the other end of the floor came to the rescue."The message right now is defense," Walton told reporters Tuesday, according to the Los Angeles Times, after his team missed 15 free throws in the win. "Everything is defense. Because we're shooting this (percentage) from the free throw line, because we're not doing this -- whatever it is -- we're still able to win games because of our defense."The Lakers' 21-of-36 showing from the line against the Celtics followed a woeful 2-of-14 effort in a 13-point victory over the Indiana Pacers last week. On Tuesday against the Celtics, the Lakers missed four free throws in the final 20 seconds, which nearly cost them a victory.. Church, the Jaguars safety, was assessed a 15-yard penalty for the hit that caused Gronkowski to stumble as he rose to his feet. ¡°It¡¯s the toughest play in football,¡± Church said about the hit earlier this week in quotes reported by WEEI Radio. If you go low for the knees you are considered a dirty player, and if you go high, they throw the flag at you. It¡¯s a bang-bang play, and I was just trying to play football. I tried to lead with my shoulder.¡±.Now, the legend has, at the very least, played his last game for the Calgary Flames. So how did a relationship that started with so much promise end so abruptly? There¡¯s no one answer, but rather a few driving factors that have led to Jagr¡¯s imminent departure from Calgary.As a slow-footed ¡®old guy¡¯ in a speed-emphasized, young man¡¯s NHL, production trumps everything. Unfortunately for Jagr and the Flames, his offensive-output has dropped dramatically just one season removed from a 46-point (0.56 PPG) campaign with the Panthers. Through 22 games with Calgary, Jagr¡¯s point-per-game pace of 0.31 is the worst of his career, as is his minuscule 3.1 shooting percentage. His primary point production has dropped off mightily, too, with his primary-points-per-60 (all situations) falling over 30 percent to 1.05 this season from 1.55 in 2016-17.There are reasons for this monumental drop in offensive production that extend far beyond Jagr¡¯s dwindling skillset. A decline in ice time and a lack of opportunities in choice situations has certainly effected Jagr¡¯s output, as has an unusual run-in with the injury bug, which the soon-to-be 46-year-old has avoided for the majority of his 24-season NHL career.Since arriving on youth-laden Flames club, Jagr has seen his overall ice time lessened by almost 25 percent. His 13:03 TOI this season is over four minutes less than the 17:06 he averaged the past three seasons, with the majority of that coming at even strength, and while skating on the Flames¡¯ third and fourth lines. Jagr has played just 34:51 on the power play through 22 games this season, an average of just over a minute-and-a-half per game. Last season with the Panthers, Jagr averaged just under three minutes TOI per contest with his team a man up.Offensive output along with opportunities to produce are down big time, and maybe the biggest reason for that is Jagr¡¯s inability to stay healthy as he has his entire career. Though he was just a young-buck at the tender age of 44-45, Jagr dressed in all 82 games for Florida last season, the sixth time in his career that he¡¯s suited up for every single one of his team¡¯s contests. The eight-time All Star has dressed in at least 75 games an astonishing 16 campaigns during his career, and has missed just 20 of 458 games (4.4%) since his 39-year-old season in 2012-13. This season alone, Jagr has been sidelined for a whopping 49% of Calgary¡¯s game, missing 21 contests with a lingering lower-body injury which has plagued the two-time Stanley Cup champion for the better part of four months.NASCAR fans are used to hearing controversial things out of Kyle Busch¡¯s mouth ¡ª not his brother¡¯s. Well, that changed this week. During the NASCAR Media Tour in Charlotte, N.C., on Tuesday, Kyle said the sport¡¯s emphasis on marketing young drivers is ¡°stupid.¡± Fellow drivers ripped the ever-opinionated Kyle for the comments, but NASCAR itself said the remarks were ¡°fair.¡± Enter Kyle¡¯s brother, Kurt Busch. During a recent appearance on the Domenik Nati Show, Kurt attempted to rationalize his brothers comments. ¡°I agree with certain aspects of what he¡¯s challenged, and then I disagree with other parts of it,¡± Kurt said. But what I think he¡¯s trying to say is we¡¯re promoting these guys, and they.Roger Federer completed his latest domination of the Aussie Open with a 5-set win in the Final on Sunday, his 20th career Grand Slam title. Rafa Nadal stole headlines earlier in the tournament when he wore a sleeveless shirt at the Australian Open recently. It is not a look that Federer dares to replicate. The reason is quite simple, according to Federer. World number one-ranked tennis player Rafa Nadal caused a racket this month. Not because he was forced to withdraw from the Australian Open due to injury, but because he went on the court to play wearing a sleeveless shirt. It is not a trend we can expect Nadal's playing rival Roger Federer to replicate. Not because Federer doesn't love Nadal's.Mike Wells ESPN Staff Writer Close Previously worked at Indianapolis Star, covering the Indiana Pacers for nine seasons Also covered Vikings for St. Paul Pioneer Press Follow on Twitter Mike Wells: I think there¡¯s a pretty chance that NC State defensive lineman Bradley Chubb will still be on the board when the Indianapolis Colts draft at No. 3 overall. That¡¯s because the Cleveland Browns and the New York Giants, the teams with the top two picks, both need quarterbacks for the present or the future. The bigger concern -- if you want to call it that -- is that the Colts might not be in the position to choose between Chubb and Penn State running back Saquon Barkley at No. 3. Indianapolis needs help.Mike Schmitz ESPN With 21-year-old rookie stat-stuffer Ben Simmons and 23-year-old All-Star starter Joel Embiid as cornerstones, the Philadelphia 76ers have one of the most exciting young cores in the NBA. Sprinkle in high-level role starters such as Dario Saric (23) and Robert Covington (27), and young bench contributors T.J. McConnell (25) and Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot (22) and there's reason for the optimism flowing through Philly, even with prized No. 1 pick Markelle Fultz yet to regain form. The Sixers are competitive (No. 7 in the East) while still sitting on young talent and future assets. But with all the well-deserved focus on Philly's talented, young roster and its future draft picks,2018 Dallas Cowboys Mock Draft Tracker - John Hancock, DallasNews Ten experts make their draft predictions for who they believe the Cowboys will select with the 19th overall pick. Here's from Mel Kiper Jr.'s pick: The rest of the experts are picking the following players: DT Maurice Hurst (3), DT Da'Ron Payne (2), DT Christian Wilkins [did not enter the draft], WR Michael Gallup, WR Christian Kirk, S Derwin James, Check out the write-up on each in the orginal article. If you've ever watched the Cowboy war room when they are on the clock in the second round, you can usually see them pretty excited about a player still left on the board. Last year, that excitement came from Chidobe Awuzie, A couple weeks ago, Matt Provenzano went over how the Yankees looked according to Dan Szymborski¡¯s ZiPS projections. Spoiler alert: they look good. Projections are not a fail-safe, and reality will always diverge from what is forecast. That the Yankees project demonstrably better now than they did in recent years, however, can only be taken as a good sign. There are other teams the Yankees must contend with, however. Chief among them are the Red Sox. Indeed, Boston has won the AL East each of the past two seasons. No matter how good the Yankees look moving forward, the Red Sox are still here, and they must be taken seriously. Just how seriously? It helps to once again turn to ZiPS to get a feel.It¡¯s the worst-kept secret in the NBA that the Los Angeles Lakers have plans on luring two big free agents this summer, but in order to do so they will need to clear some salary cap space. Jordan Clarkson and Julius Randle have been mentioned ad nauseum as potential trade candidates, but a somewhat surprising inclusion recently was Larry Nance Jr. Once called the team¡¯s secret weapon by president of basketball operations Magic Johnson, Nance began the season as a starter, but now comes off the bench. Either way, he constantly provides excellent defense and hustle, even as his offensive game hasn¡¯t developed as much as many had hoped, himself included. Many viewed the Lakers possibly shopping.The Cavaliers' Dwyane Wade posted an emotional farewell to Instagram on Saturday after the passing of his agent Henry "Hank" Thomas. A representative from Thomas' agency, CAA, confirmed his passing to Sports Illustrated. Wade had missed the Cavaliers game on Friday night against the Pacers with a "family emergency." In the post, Wade wrote about how Thomas served as a father figure to him and he wished he would be there for the next moments in his life. A post shared by dwyanewade (@dwyanewade) on Jan 27, 2018 at 12:32pm PST Coach Tyronn Lue said Friday that general manager Koby Altman talked with Wade and told him to "take his time" with the issue.
