LaMelo Ball Teases Fans With Exciting And Slick No-Look Pass: Watch

As we head into a new season NBA basketball, many the narratives will be centered around the 2020 NBA Draft where a whole crop young players will be selected into the league. One the players who have gotten a ton traction recently is none other than LaMelo Ball who is currently in Australia playing for the Illawarra Hawks the NBL. So far, LaMelo has been a shining star in the league as he has consistently pulled f highlight-reel plays that make it to Twitter in droves.

Having said that, it shouldn’t be surprising that LaMelo pulled f yet another phenomenal play over the weekend. In the clip below, you can see LaMelo driving to the basket and then delivering a no-look pass to his teammate who finishes f the play.

Ball is considered to be a lock to be taken within the first five picks the draft which is pretty interesting considering we haven’t seen much NCAA action so far. Regardless, if Ball continues to play like this, he will certainly catch the eye NBA scouts out there who are looking for the next franchise player.

Who knows, maybe LaMelo could even go first overall. 

DaBaby Fan Hilariously Takes Photo With His Friend Thinking It’s Him

When you come across one the hottest rappers in the entire world at the airport, you’ve got to at least try to get a picture or an autograph. The only thought running through this woman’s head was to get back home and show f to all her friends. “I met DaBaby, you know, the guy who raps that ‘Suge’ song,” she would be happily exclaiming to her coworkers in the coming days. Unfortunately for her though, she ended up snapping a shot with the wrong man though.

Running up to DaBaby and his squad as they prepared to board a flight to their next tour destination, one woman tried to get a quick photo with the rapper but she was so excited that she must have forgotten what the KIRK star actually looks like. Posting up next to Baby’s friend, who was rocking a Billion Dollar Baby chain and a Charlotte basketball jersey, the lady snapped a few shots but Baby’s homie was uncomfortable the entire time. He ran f laughing as the entire team quietly clowned her before DaBaby tapped her on the shoulder three different times. At that point, she finally realized she had the wrong man.

Thankfully, she didn’t appear to be too humiliated. At the end the day, she can’t be the only person this has ever happened to. Sometimes, you just get caught up in the moment. Shout-out to DaBaby for actually still taking a pic with her though.

Jerry Lorenzo has been one the marquee fashion designers in the world over the last few years as he continues to blend streetwear with high fashion. Nike seems to be a big fan this aesthetic as they have now teamed up with Virgil Abloh and Lorenzo. Lorenzo is known for his Fear God brand and over the past year, he has been making a wide variety shoes with Nike. 

Perhaps the most impressive shoe he has come up with so far is the Nike Air Fear Of God 1 which is essentially a basketball shoe that also has casual sensibilities. There have been a handful colorways to release so far and according to py_rates, even more, are on the way.

These four colorways are “Multi-color/String-Oatmeal-Pale Ivory,”  “Multi-color/Off Noir-String-Oatmeal,” “Multi-color/Off Noir-Off Noir,” and “Off Noir/Off Noir.” The releases for these models are going to be spread out evenly between the Holiday season this year and next summer. Just like the other models before them, these will be going for a hefty retail price $350 USD. 

Let us know in the comments below what you think about this collection and whether or not you plan on copping anything.

LeBron James, KD, Dwight Howard & More Receive Height Changes

It shouldn’t even have to be said at this point but height is more important in basketball than any other sport. Because the rim is 10-feet f the ground, you need to be taller in order to get buckets in tight. Height matters more based on the position you play and teams tend to take these things into account when they are trying to build a squad. That’s why this year, the NBA decided to change the way it measures height as they suspected teams had been faking these measurements. Now, players are measured without their shoes on.

In a new report from Shams Charania Stadium, the heights for some the league’s biggest stars were revealed. As you can see from the graphic below, LeBron James went from 6’8 to 6’8.5, KD went from 6’9 to 6’9.5, Anthony Davis and Dwight Howard went down to 6’9.75 from 6’11 while Klay Thompson is now 6’5.

These new height totals won’t really affect the flow the game or anything like that although they give more an accurate portrayal some the league’s stars. It seems like the NBA really wants to make an effort to be more transparent and the height issue is one the ways they plan to do that.

Zion Williamson Lands Another Major Endorsement Deal

New Orleans Pelicans rookie Zion Williamson has yet to appear in a regular season NBA game but he already has an assortment major endorsement deals tucked away. In addition to becoming the new face Jordan Brand and his deals with NBA 2K, Panini and Gatorade, Zion has now joined “The Dew Team.”

Mountain Dew announced their five-year partnership with the 19-year old phenom on Friday by revealing super-hero themed murals on two refurbished basketball courts at Stewart Park in South Carolina, nearby Spartanburg Day School, where Zion first burst onto the scene as a high school basketball legend.

Tying together Zion’s new home, New Orleans, with his roots in Spartanburg, Mountain Dew commissioned New Orleans-based artist Ceaux Young to redesign the courts at Stewart Park.

“The mural came together after my partnership with Mountain Dew, and it came together because Mountain Dew likes to dive into the lifestyle within hoops,” Williamson told Yahoo Sports.

“They know that I like superheroes, comics, anime, cartoons, stuff like that. They know that my name was made in Spartanburg, that’s where the world was introduced to me. And also, they took another part me being new to New Orleans, and they got an artist from New Orleans, Ceaux Young. So, the court in Spartanburg, the artist from New Orleans, and my liking superheroes, cartoons, anime and all that stuff, brought it all together and the mural was created.”

Zion’s regular season debut will be a bit delayed due to a right knee injury he suffered during the preseason, but it won’t be long now before his superhero-like ability is on full display in the NBA.

Andre Iguodala Comes To LeBron James’ Defense Over China Issue: Watch

LeBron James has been facing a ton scrutiny over the last week due to his lack opinion on the China situation with the NBA. It all started when Houston Rockets GM Daryl Morey sent a tweet that showed support for the pro-democracy protests in Hong Kong. James appeared to scold Morey for putting the players in a compromising position and then went on to say that he didn’t want to get involved in the affairs another country.

Since then, James has been criticized from all sides and now, he is finally receiving some support. During an interview with Hot 97, Andre Iguodala spoke about the China issue and how there seems to be a double standard at play.

“It’s interesting in this situation with China, they’re shoving a camera in our face and be like, ‘No you can’t say no comment we need you to speak on this,'” Iguodala explained. “They ready to attack LeBron for making a statement because they don’t like his statement, they feel like he should have took another stance. But when he’s home and he makes a stance about… and it’s like, ‘No this is not your place to make that statement.’ That was just mindblowing. That’s what bothered me the most.”

Iguodala’s perspective is one that hasn’t been shared thus far so it’s interesting to listen to what he has to say. The former Warriors star certainly makes a great point although, on the flip side, LeBron is a player who has built his brand f being more than an athlete. With that in mind, we expect him to make political statements at this point, so his lack opinion came f as disappointing to many fans.

LeBron James Humbly Reacts To His Insane Danny Green Pass

Last night was huge for the Los Angeles Lakers as they fielded a roster which closest resembles what they will be playing with, in the regular season. The team destroyed the Golden State Warriors by a score 126-93 in preseason action which certainly pleased the enthusiastic Staples Center crowd. Lakers fans were treated to a show from some the team’s stars, including a hilarious play from JaVale McGee where he faked an injury in order to get a basket on Draymond Green.

The best play the night came from LeBron James who drove to the basket before making a no-look pass to Danny Green who made an easy three-pointer. Fans immediately took to Twitter to express just how crazy the play was and that LeBron continues to look great despite his age.

After the game, LeBron was asked about the play and according to Joe Vardon The Athletic, even James was at a loss for words. “It’s one my … yeah it’s up there,” he said.

The whole Lakers team looked to be on point last night and if this is what fans have to look forward to this year, they are certainly in for a treat. Perhaps the Lakers could even make a deep run if their starters build chemistry at the right time. They definitely have the talent to pull it f.

Travis Scott May Need Surgery After Injuring His Knee

Travis Scott may be going under the knife.

After falling onstage at Rolling Loud last weekend, the chart-topping rapper will reportedly undergo surgery on his bum knee.

Sources tell TMZ that Travis visited an orthopedic specialist at L.A.’s Cedars-Sinai Kerlan-Jobe Institute this week. He was diagnosed with a dislocated knee, more specifically a stretch or tear in the patellar tendon.

Travis injured himself while performing at Rolling Loud in New York on Saturday (Oct. 12). He landed on his leg wrong while jumping up and down and had to hobble on one leg for the rest of his performance. Despite the injury, he still finished the show.

Doctors want to wait another day or two before deciding if surgery is needed, or if the knee can heal on its own. However, Travis might opt for surgery because he wants to get back to playing basketball.

He will need to rest up before two major performances next month. He is slated to headline the Day N Vegas festival on Nov. 2 and his own ASTROWORLD Festival on Nov. 9.

But it’s not all bad news. This week, his single “Highest in the Room” debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, becoming his second leader on the chart.

Carmelo Anthony’s Defensive Issues Revealed In Scathing Report

Carmelo Anthony is one those NBA players who constantly has fans divided. While he might be one the best scorers the last decade, there is certainly quite a bit debate as to what he’s accomplished and what kind player he is when he doesn’t have the ball. After an unsuccessful stint in OKC, Anthony went to the Houston Rockets last season and was released after just 10 games. Since then, not a single team has signed him to a contract and now, he’s in basketball purgatory.

There have been theories as to why no one wants to sign him but a new report from ESPN’s Baxter Holmes seems to point to Melo’s defensive shortcomings. In the report, an anonymous source says Melo is so bad on defense that he actually surprised the Rockets.

Carmelo Anthony's Defensive Issues Revealed In Scathing Report

Per Holmes:

“Although the Rockets knew Anthony’s defensive weaknesses before he joined, team sources say they didn’t anticipate just how limited he would be in their aggressive switch-centric defense, which tasked him with running quicker players f the 3-point line. One team source speculates that, had they known he’d struggle so much in their defense, Anthony wouldn’t have been brought aboard. “He really, really struggled with it,” the source says.”

With that being said, it shouldn’t be surprising that Melo hasn’t found another home in the NBA. It’s a sad state affairs for a player who was so beloved during his prime.
