NBA All-Star and humanitarian Luol Deng has spent 9 years with the Chicago Bulls, leading the team in both victory and defeat. JAY-Z’s Life+Times spent some time with him off the courts to get a look into a day in his life as he prepared for the team’s playoff run.
How did we lose to the Bulls when Chicago was playing without Deng, Hinrich, and Rose…I have no clue. Well, it’s year one in Brooklyn. We can’t be too mad.
Love him or hate him…you HAVE to RESPECT him! Click HERE to watch the highlights. 44-0! Crazy, he won with a swollen hand too! Hats off to Robert Guerrero too, it was a good fight.
You know, I never really liked the Yeezy’s…but these are tight!!!!
Sporting a black nylon base with Mint Green accents seen around the mudguard, these AM 1′s certainly take on the look of Kanye’s x Nike’s second collaboration. A white midsole leads into the pink sole, further suggesting the concept behind this design. Pairs have begun to pop up at overseas retailers so make sure to keep it locked to SneakerWatch for any stateside release info.
I pray that he doesn’t get dropped from ESPN, he’s a good reporter. Why not just say “no comment”? Its the mans life, who really cares if he’s gay or not. But this was just a foolish move in my opinion. I do however respect him for being honest as I respect Jason Collins for his honesty…but really bro,”open rebellion to God”? LMAO, what choice of words, you know there’s some backlash coming from the powers that be. I’ll be very surprised if people aren’t getting their petitions ready to have him dropped from the network as you read this. But the real question here is…do you agree with him?
Jason Collins’ decision to come out, making him the first active openly gay athlete in any major U.S. team sport, sparked plenty of conversation on Monday, including a controversial exchange involving ESPN NBA reporter Chris Broussard during a one-hour episode of “Outside The Lines.”
During this extended edition of “OTL,” Broussard described homosexuality as an “open rebellion to God” and explained why he does not consider Collins to be a Christian.
“Personally, I don’t believe that you can live an openly homosexual lifestyle or an openly … like premarital sex between heterosexuals. If you’re openly living that type of lifestyle, then the Bible says ‘you know them by their fruits.’ It says that, you know, that’s a sin,” Broussard said during a segment that also included gay ESPN columnist LZ Granderson. “And if you’re openly living in unrepentant sin, whatever it may be, not just homosexuality — adultery, fornication, premarital sex between heterosexuals — whatever it may be, I believe that’s walking in open rebellion to God and to Jesus Christ. So I would not characterize that person as a Christian because I don’t think the Bible would characterize them as a Christian.”
Would I rock these? I would have to say yes!
The world’s sports spectacular is celebrated on the Air Jordan 11 Low “Olympic Rings” Custom. Rocking the same USA color blocking as AJ releases of the same theme, this Sole On Canvas custom places navy on the mudguard of last summer’s Air Jordan 11 Low White/Red release. Country flag graphic covers the heel on the right foot, with the famous rings shining on the left heel. -via NiceKicks
So its official. Jay-Z has sold his ownership of the Nets for his Roc Nation Sports endeavor. He shared his thoughts in an open letter he posted to his website. Check it out below.
Being a member of the Nets organization surpassed some of my greatest ambitions. It was never about an investment; it was about the NETS and Brooklyn. My job as an owner is over but as a fan it has just begun. I’m a Brooklyn Net forever. It’s been an honor to work with Mikhail Prokhorov, Dmitry Razumov, Christophe Charlier, ONEXIM Sports and Entertainment, Brett Yormark and all the wonderful people involved in making the Nets first class. My sincerest thanks goes to Bruce Ratner, who first introduced the idea of moving the Nets to Brooklyn. A thank you and deepest appreciation goes to the fans. You are the lifeblood of any team.
The Nets have made their mark on the NBA and as they enter a new era, Roc Nation does as well; as we embark on Roc Nation Sports. Our newest endeavor is committed to building the brands of professional athletes as we have done for some of today’s top music artists. For Roc Nation Sports to function at its full potential, NBA rules stipulate that I relinquish my ownership in the Brooklyn Nets. It was a tough decision but as I stated earlier, it’s not about ownership. Congratulations to The Nets on a great season and making the playoffs! I will always be a Brooklyn Net.
