Usually the Jordans carrying the “Playoffs” nickname were ones that led to an eventual championship for Mike for the post-season in which they were originally rocked. The Air Jordan VIII shown here of course fits that bill, being the shoe that His Airness had on feet during the third installment of his initial triple. The shoes currently have a June 15th release date attached, one which will be preceded by a similarly colored Air Jordan 1 ’93.
Rick Ross just learned a hard lesson about rape and money … you embrace one, you lose the other … because he was just DUMPED by Reebok.
As TMZ previously reported… Ross has taken a ton of heat for his song, U.O.E.N.O … in which he happily sings, “Put Molly [Ecstasy] all in the champagne. She ain’t even know it. I took her home and I enjoy that. She ain’t even know it.” Translation — date rape.
Reebok tells TMZ … “Reebok holds our partners to a high standard, and we expect them to live up to the values of our brand. Unfortunately, Rick Ross has failed to do so.”
Reebok goes on: “While we do not believe that Rick Ross condones sexual assault, we are very disappointed he has yet to display an understanding of the seriousness of this issue or an appropriate level of remorse.”
Since when does Nike do NBA team colorways for the foams? I know Spike Lee had a pair of Knicks foams but those were some kinda special run just for him. These Pheonix Suns foams are rumored to be coming soon. Stay tuned.

With the Jordan XX8 being slandered beyond recognition, its a relief that one of the great OG J’s will be making an appearance in a refreshing blue colorway this February. The Squadron Blue is sure to be a hit. Hopefully by February the XX8 will be nothing but a memory.
These pics kinda suck, but I can’t even lie. I’m excited as hell about the KD V’s. And these first shots of the KD V Thunders just upped the ante. They extended the ankle, gave us textured, rounder strings, killed the strap,gave it a airbag & hit us w/ a CRAZY bright OKC colorway!! These are rumored to drop in December. Stay tuned for more info & better pics.
