EastBay and NightWing are both awesome, I been on both for quite a while.
They got a huge selection and are very big in the states, they got athletes like LeBron supporting and doing commercials for them.
Nightwing knows his shit when it comes to shoes, I always take his recommendation.

oh man..... fckin watchin Heat @ Wizards right now just to see what happens

The New Orleans Hornets are expected to become the New Orleans Pelicans, perhaps as early as the 2013-14 season, according to a Yahoo! Sports report.

Yahoo! Sports, citing numerous sources, reports the team also considered Krewe and Brass as potential nicknames.

The Hornets have planned to change their name since New Orleans Saints owner Tom Benson, who also owns the rights to the Pelicans nickname, bought the team in April.

Charlotte Bobcats owner Michael Jordan said in November he'd be interested in bringing the Hornets' name back to Charlotte.

"It's definitely an interest down the road, but right now it's the New Orleans Hornets," Jordan told the Charlotte Observer. "We would definitely entertain the opportunity. That's as much as we can say right now. We've heard the community ask the question, and we would listen."

The pelican is Louisiana's state bird and appears on both the state seal and flag. A New Orleans minor league baseball team held the Pelicans nickname in all but nine seasons from 1887-1959, and again in 1977.

The Hornets moved to New Orleans from Charlotte in 2002, and when Benson bought the team earlier this year, he said he would like to change the name to something more fitting of Louisiana. His wife, Gayle, reiterated that idea and added that the franchise also would like to change the team colors from teal and purple to red, gold and navy blue.

MJ also pushed for getting the Hornets name back to his team, so expect Charlotte to regain the Hornets as soon as all the paperwork is done.
I am curious about the team colors though, New Orleans going to stick with the teal or will they go with something new and give that up along with the Hornets name as well.

I really think that they should have shuffled it a little bit, gave New Orleans back the Jazz name and Utah could have gone with something more fitting to their state full of Mormons and Mountains, no Jazz music to be heard in the whole damn state I bet, lol


and Pelicans ? all I keep thinkin in my head is Flyyyy Pelican

yea under 3 minutes left in that game, 95-99 right now Heat down....
this is good, I'm happy for Washington they deserve the win if they get it, played hard on their homecourt and Lord knows their fans deserve a win like this lol

I'm switching back and forth between this and the Lakers Rockets, game.... where Toney Douglas is playing exceptionally well with 14 points and 5+ assists roughly... twilight zoooooneeee

AI crossing MJ. Sick, an absolutely sick crossover. Iverson must have practiced that crossover many times. Practice, you talkin' about practice?

wtf, Lakers lost ??

I tuned out of that game figuring they had it, a comfy lead playing fairly well.... then again I should have known something was up from watching all first half while Toney fckin Douglas was rippin them apart....

Just last night I was watching the Charlotte Portland game and Cats are up 18 points with 4-5 minutes left, but my main man from a few years back was hot, Ben Jordan hit like 7-9 threes so I wanted to watch him some more, and whattya know I sat there bewildered watching the Cats blow an almost 20 point lead in the last 3 mins of the game to lose it in OT

Miami's loss doesn't mean shit....it's a slip up and means nothing.
Lakers loss cannot be dismissed....they are going on long losing streaks right now....That said, no rash decisions should be made at this point for LA...No fair judgement can be made until Nash rejoins the team and starts running the offense. A D'Antoni offense is nothing without a good point guard.

Lakers loss... Nash isn't back, Gasol is a shadow, and guys aren't gelling quite yet... to make matters worse, the multi time defensive player of the year D12 does not own the defensive paint for the first time in many MANY seasons...


as far as Miami loss, that team has been accused of not just this season but ever since LeBron joined them... that is that they tend to cruise control it right away and not play the game with a sense of urgency until it's too late.
This bit them in the ass 2 years ago against Dallas in the Finals when they won the first few games and checked out basically assuming Dallas had done the same. And if Spoelstra was half the coach he should be to hold a head coach position, he would have shook that shit out of them soon as they lost those Finals.

Their lack of effort keeps them inconsistent, and I don't know what they think if they're saving themselves for the playoffs or what, but hell at a time you should be fine tuning a well oiled machine because... y'know... not 1...not 2...not 3...not 4....etc... you're picking up bad habits that will take longer to fix than that tuneup month right before the playoffs every team tightens up
SPPPOELLLLLSTRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA !

Shoulda went with New Orleans Brass. Way classier and marketable I think. Maybe a bit too close to the Jazz though...

Like they say, once you win a championship, the regular season becomes boring.
Losing to the Wiz is not even a big deal, any team can lose to any other team, shit happens.
And to be honest, even if the Heat end up in the 8th seed, it wont matter they will still make the finals.
The West will have a far more interesting play off bracket, to many good teams there.

Actually, if they are at 8th seed, it's a whole different story...That would mean they are going on long losing streaks and that is definitely something to worry about.......Losing a game to a shitty team once every 10 games is not a big deal....losing to good and bad teams 2, 3, 4 games in a row....Now you have a problem...

Kobe becomes the youngest player in NBA history to score more than 30,000 points. Incredible. Mamba enters the club of all time great players who have over 30,000 points like Kareem, Karl Malone, and MJ.

Bryant becomes youngest player to top 30,000 career points

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T3l-3bibxeo

Bryant is 34. Wilt Chamberlain was 35 when he hit the mark, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Karl Malone were each 36 and Michael Jordan was 38.

A ironic part of Kobe's achievement as per this Tweet:


Its ironic how kobe is about to scored his 30,000th point on the team who traded him on draft day..#kobe30k

Shaq's reaction in Twitterverse:


CONGRATS 2 THE GREAT KOBE "BEAN" BRYANT 4 DROPPING 30,004 POINTS OVER HIS CAREER AND STILL COUNTING.

congrats to Mamba....

the screencap for this video is just too much, lol, looks like an alleyoop gone horribly wrong




Lob City bitch, Lob Lob city bitch



what a tough shot over a very good perimeter defender, Smith really has a great shooting touch and off the dribble him and Jamal Crawford are top notch
