It’s a very polarizing looking shoe and based on the comments section on the post below, you can see that consumers are pretty divided here.

“The Boston Celtics have emerged as the frontrunner to sign Charlotte All-Star guard Kemba Walker once free agency opens Sunday at 6 PM ET, league sources tell ESPN,” Wojnarowski tweeted.
Walker is eligible to sign a supermax deal with the Charlotte Hornets worth $220 million over 5 years. If he were to sign with Boston, he would only be able to yield a four-year contract, although playing for a franchise like the Celtics would probably be a huge factor in his decision.
Free agency ficially begins on Sunday, June 30th at 6 P.M. EST so that’s when players will start meeting with teams. Things can change between now and then so stay tuned for all the updates regarding the free agent period.
Free agency is almost upon us which means there will be a ton fresh signings and trades to report over the next few weeks. One the players that have been on everyone’s radar is Jimmy Butler who just finished up a great season with the Philadelphia 76ers. Butler will be seeking a max contract in free agency which means there are only a handful teams that would be able to get him. As it stands, the Houston Rockets are trying to recruit Butler although they don’t have the cap space to do so.
In a report from ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, it was revealed that the Rockets are planning on doing a sign in trade with the 76ers, where Philadelphia would give Butler his max contract and then trade him to Houston. If they want this deal to work financially, the Rockets would have to give up players like Clint Capela and Eric Gordon.
There is no guarantee this deal will ever come to fruition considering Butler seemed to enjoy his time in Philadelphia. The 76ers are one the four teams who could contend for a championship next season and if they’re able to keep Butler on the team, it would certainly give them a huge boost.
With that said, the 76ers might not be too interested in the sign and trade proposal.

“I met John backstage at the ‘Arsenio Hall Show’,” Cube explained. “I was back there because I had a bone to pick with Arsenio. He didn’t have N.W.A. on his show, but he had 2 Live Crew, and I was like, ‘Wait a minute, their songs are just as dirty as ours, and why are we not on?’
He added: “I never got a chance to talk to Arsenio because I saw this little kid come up to me, who was pretty much my age, saying, ‘You’re Ice Cube. I wanna put you in a movie.’”

Cuba Gooding Jr is in a burning hot seat as late ever since he’s been caught groping a woman’s breasts and thighs. The actor turned himself in after a surveillance tape showed pro his sexual harassing a woman in a club, despite his girlfriend being right next to him. The woman involved, who has since pressed charges, maintains that she was simply attempting to help Gooding Jr by fering him some water as he seemed to be in a “highly intoxicated” state. Though when she did, he proceeded to inappropriately grab her. Since then, Gooding Jr. continues to deny the allegations claiming he places his trust in the system. “I trust the system, and the process speaks for itself,” were his exact words. Ever since the latter occurred, it seems Cuba has kept away from the cameras until recently.
According to TMZ, the famed actor was spotted sharing hugs and kisses with his daughter’s lawyer, Elizabeth Heller. Currently, Gooding Jr. is represented by Elizabeth’s father, Mark Heller, in the sexual abuse and forcible touching case.

When the Golden State Warriors kick f their 2019-2020 season in October, they will be playing in a brand new arena called the Chase Center. They will be moving from Oracle Arena on Oakland to San Francisco and to mark the occasion, the Warriors are making some slight changes to their logo in order to give a more authentic feel to the franchise. When you look at the new logo, it doesn’t seem all that different although as the team’s Twitter account explained, there are some slight differences.
Essentially, the bay bridge will look a lot more realistic than the current representation on the Warriors crest, while the font surrounding it will be a little bit different. These changes aren’t exactly huge but they do mark a new era in Warriors basketball that will be marked by the move into a brand new facility.
This announcement comes the day before the Golden State Warriors play the Toronto Raptors in Game 6 the NBA Finals. The Warriors are down 3-2 in the series and will be looking to save their season and extend the Finals to a seventh game in Toronto. No matter what though, tonight will be the last ever game at Oracle.
Hockey on a hip-hop website is a rare sight but when you consider what the St. Louis Blues accomplished this season, it’s only right that they are given their due praise. On January 1st, the Blues were a joke a team. They were last place and had no hope to even think about making it to the playfs. That’s when the team made a drastic change at the goaltender position, replacing Jake Allen with 25-year-old minor league goalie Jordan Binnington. Binnington was an immediate success with the Blues and dug them out a huge hole as he led them to the playfs.
The Blues went on to eliminate the Winnipeg Jets, the Dallas Stars, and the San Jose Sharks en route to the Stanley Cup Finals. The only team left in their way was the mighty Boston Bruins who were dominant this season. Binnington went toe-to-toe with Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask in what ended up being a seven-game series. In Game 7 last night, Binnington stood on his head as the Blues managed a 4-1 victory, upsetting the B’s and earning their first Stanley Cup since entering the league in 1968.
Admittedly, I was skeptical that the Blues could pull it f. Not because they didn’t have the will to do so, but because the Bruins have a championship pedigree thanks to a team experienced veterans. Instead, the Blues proved to the world what a great story they have been this season. They showed the sports world what parity looks like and you can’t help but feel a sort satisfaction to see such a team hoist one the greatest trophies in sports.
There will certainly be one commenter who will tell me I was wrong about my prediction yesterday and honestly, I’m glad I was wrong. It was a fairy tale end to fairy tale season for a team and fan base that had suffered for far too long.
Kyrie Irving was eliminated from the playfs in the second round and his future with the Boston Celtics appears to be up in the air. Regardless Irving’s playf success, Nike is still looking to release new colorways the Nike Kyrie 5, as well as new silhouettes such as the Nike Kyrie Low 2, which just came out today.
The first colorway the shoe is black and white which is about as basic as it guests as far as colorways go. Perhaps Nike did this intentionally considering Irving doesn’t really have an allegiance to any teams right now. If you’re a real sleuth though, you might say the black and white colorway is a hint that he’s going to the Brooklyn Nets, although that would truly be a huge stretch. The upper the shoe is completely black, while a white speckled midsole and white Nike swoosh make up the rest the sneaker, giving it an Oreo aesthetic.
If you want to pick these up, you can do so right now over at Finish Line for $110 USD.

Spotify is currently working on a new feature which would allow multiple users to control the playlist at the same time. This could mean something huge if you find yourself ever debating between who should be in control the AUX cord. The app’s feature is called “Social Listening” and would allow friends to control music together. In a way, it would be similar to a collaborative playlist though there would be no time-restrictive component. Hence, you may go on and on with your song selections. The idea stemmed from the assumption that the collaborators listen to the same kind music, thus the feature would make the task easier.

Additionally, users can cater to the playlist regardless whether or not they are physically together. A stware engineer by the name Jane Manchun Wong, who is known for getting access to unreleased app features through intense coding, came across the feature and announced it on Twitter.

Surely, no one else can access the app as now, but it remains something to look forward to.
