Equipped with a full-length Boost midsole, the construction of this design boasts a very similar aesthetic makeup to the Uncaged Ultra Boost model. Dressed primarily in black, this styling has specks of green and pink scattered throughout the upper as well as a large white striped pattern on its heel meant to match the adidas branding. The aforementioned green and pink match this sneaker¡¯s outsole, which utilizes a mismatched pattern, with the left unit sporting green and the right donned in pink.

Nike¡¯s Air Max 1 silhouette had a very busy 2017 campaign, including the return of numerous OG colorways in celebration of the sneaker¡¯s 30th anniversary. One of those resurgent color schemes was the Air Max 1 ¡°Obsidian¡± that utilizes the dark navy hue with a mixture of grey and quick hits of red on the toe of the outsole as well as its Nike branding. Now the Swoosh is taking the aforementioned Obsidian hue and re-using it on the same model completely devoid of any red. Other than that, the two designs are practically identical, making these a more than suitable consolation prize for anyone that missed out on adding another OG Air Max 1 to their collection.Drake¡¯s OVO camp took to Twitter to confirm the much anticipated release date for their next collaboration with Jordan Brand.

The odds are still long, but the more time that goes by, the more likely the starting pitching market gets to a place in which they feel comfortable enough to pounce.. After a summer of hoping and waiting and finally inking a one-year, -million deal with the Flames in early October, Jagr was behind the proverbial eight-ball off the hop, and never found his footing ¡ª scoring just once and adding six assists over his first (and likely only) 22 contests with the Flames. He¡¯s also been anchored by a lower-body injury the past several months, missing 21 games up to this point in the season. Jagr stayed home for the Flames¡¯ recent four-game road swing, and was a scratch the last two contests prior to the trip..When examining reasons why the Warriors have been better on the road than at home, it literally starts at the beginning.Though their 38-10 record is the best in the league, there is no question Kerr and his staff members are seeking cures to the areas that have nagged the Warriors, particularly at home.. Practices are over at the 2018 Senior Bowl in Mobile, Alabama, which means most of the NFL scouts, coaches and front-office executives in attendance have departed to begin prep for the combine in late February. Senior Bowl (Saturday, 2:30 p.m. ET, NFL Network) practices are the best place to evaluate the top upperclassmen prospects in the country, and several under-the-radar prospects helped themselves this week. Our team of NFL draft experts -- Todd McShay, Mel Kiper Jr., Matt Bowen, Steve Muench and Jeff Legwold -- help break down the performances of each quarterback, evaluate the prospects who rose up draft boards, and answer questions on Baker Mayfield vs. Josh Allen and more..But as has been the trend with the Lakers, the ability to find a way to get a stop at the other end of the floor came to the rescue."The message right now is defense," Walton told reporters Tuesday, according to the Los Angeles Times, after his team missed 15 free throws in the win. "Everything is defense. Because we're shooting this (percentage) from the free throw line, because we're not doing this -- whatever it is -- we're still able to win games because of our defense."The Lakers' 21-of-36 showing from the line against the Celtics followed a woeful 2-of-14 effort in a 13-point victory over the Indiana Pacers last week. On Tuesday against the Celtics, the Lakers missed four free throws in the final 20 seconds, which nearly cost them a victory..

One of the key ingredients in determining how the Giants view their No. 2 pick in the NFL Draft is this: How do they feel about Davis Webb? Every indication from general manager Dave Gettleman and new head coach Pat Shurmur is that Eli Manning will return as the starting quarterback. It will be difficult for the Giants to pass up taking a top prospect, such as Josh Rosen or Sam Darnold or even Josh Allen to ensure their quarterback of the future is on the roster. Unless, of course, they believe Webb ¡ª the 2017 third-round pick ¡ª can be that guy. Shurmur in his role as the Vikings offensive coordinator evaluated the quarterbacks in last year¡¯s draft and came away impressed with Webb.. Cornerback Aqib Talib has been a key player for the Broncos since arriving in Denver in 2014, but he may be playing somewhere else in 2018.Mike Klis of KUSA reports that the Broncos are expected to put Talib on the trading block this offseason.Klis cites financial considerations as the reason why the Broncos will try to move Talib. Talib has two years left on a contract that calls for him to make salaries of million in 2018 and million in 2019. They have Chris Harris signed for two more years while Bradley Roby is heading into the fifth year of his rookie deal..Prior to taking the helm of the Paul George signature line, footwear designer Tony Hardman was delivering some stylish low-cut performance basketball footwear like the Run The One, Zoom Crusader, and Hyperchase ¨C three shoes that were wildly popular among NBA players roughly 2-3 years ago. He learned some of the signature shoe process while working on LeBron James¡¯ Ambassador line.He just wanted to change things up. It wasn¡¯t a functional thing where he didn¡¯t like the strap. Just visually, he wanted to go in a different direction and switch it up a bit.. Jae has been playing good the last few games and it has nothing to do with Jae," Lue said. "He's been great. He's all about the right things. He's all about the team."You hate to make these changes. Not saying it's permanent, but he's about the team. Went and talked to him this morning and he said, 'Whatever is best for the team. I'm all in.' It was a great talk with him."Crowder has underperformed this season -- his first with the Cavs. Traded by Boston along with Thomas, Ante Zizic and two draft picks for Kyrie Irving, Crowder's scoring, shooting, rebounding and defensive numbers are all down from a year ago. And his defensive rating of 112 is by far the worst of his career.. McMahon was asked if he¡¯d consider Manziel, Colin Kaepernick or Tim Tebow, a trio of famous quarterback who are all out of football work. When you read the answer, remember that Tebow and Kaepernick have never been arrested for anything.¡°When I say the quality of human being is very important, and just as important as the quality of player, what I mean by that is, you want someone who doesn¡¯t have any criminality whatsoever associated with them,¡± McMahon said. ¡°In the XFL even if you have a DUI you will not play in the XFL. That would probably eliminate some of them, not all of them. If Tim Tebow wants to play, he could very well play.¡±In honor of the upcoming Lunar New Year on February 16th, Nike is releasing an SF-AF1 version that tells a story of that day. The Swoosh¡¯s celebration of the Chinese New Year has been extensive this year, including Jordan Brand silhouettes and a plethora of Nike basketball models as well. Keeping with the theme, a massive fireworks display takes shape on the outsole while Chinese characters come emblazoned on its insole. Made up of primarily white, this SF-AF1 dons golden hardware in order to add a bit of luxe to this simplistic design. There is currently no release information available, but expect this offering to drop before the New Year on the 16th.Famed tattoo artist Dr. Woo is teaming up with Converse to put his own unique spin on the iconic Chuck Taylor 70. ¡°I wanted something clean and not obvious or expected of me,¡± Dr. Woo said. Woo takes distinguished aesthetics and recognizable compositions and turns them into one-of-a-kind pieces of body artwork from an unadvertised suite in the Roosevelt Hotel.While Dr. Woo was growing up, he would always take his pair of Chucks and try to deconstruct them ¨C drawing all over them, tearing them up, trying to make them unique to himself. His new Chuck collaboration tells the story of a spider and a fly, delivering a minimalist aesthetic that allows for the wearer to come up with his or her own interpretation of the meaning. Dr. Woo¡¯s signature logo also comes emblazoned as a strong focal point of the design as it portrays what communicating with each other and the creatures that inhabit earth means in today¡¯s society. Its design is meant to get dirty and scuffed, as the artist intended for the spider embroidery to get rough and fuzzy, giving the shoe its own personal feel and story as it ages.A very limited number of sneakers will be personally tattooed and signed by Dr. Woo himself, but that release will be exclusive to a private event at Maxfield in LA. The rest of the sneakers will be available at Converse.com and select retailers on January 20th. In the meantime, enjoy a look at both the black and white pair below..Under Armour¡¯s ongoing efforts to break into the lifestyle footwear category made its biggest mark in 2017 as the brand officially announced a partnership with A$AP Rocky last June. We¡¯ve yet to see anything come to light from that partnership, but it¡¯s looking like something¡¯s in the works thanks to this leaked photo that reveals the Harlem-based style icon and a sample of an Under Armour shoe. The upper is a clear take on the retro-style running shoe trend that¡¯s sure to hit an apex in 2017, while the midsole is from the Forge 1 shoe from UA Sportswear, a shoe that quietly debuted last year. Under Armour confirms that the shoe here is not an A$AP collaboration, but an upcoming model from the aforementioned Forge 1 line. The A$AP Rocky x Under Armour Sportswear collaboration is set to debut this year.. Jordan Brand has officially unveiled its first collaboration of 2018, one that pairs two American giants of apparel for an incredible two-piece collection. Included in this set is the Air Jordan 4 Retro built with Levi¡¯s denim, gum bottoms, and Levi¡¯s red tab branding for that signature look, while the classic Trucker Jacket is treated with a nylon ¡°flight suit¡± interior for a fully reversible stance. Perhaps the most impressive detail is the tan ¡°Two Horses¡± patch, which has been modified to include the Jumpman logo for a true one-of-one feel.. "We did some good things, though we were able to cut the lead to six and five, but we couldn't get over that hump."Following last year¡¯s Air Jordan 13 Oregon PE, it appears that the Swoosh brand has hooked the Ducks up again with another exclusive of that same silhouette. Most significantly, the signature Jordan 13 hologram has been replaced with an Oregon logo to mach the giant ¡°O¡± embroidered on this offering¡¯s tongue while being dressed up in grey suede with white leather detailing. Dubbed the ¡°Mathew Knight¡± PE, this new look pays homage to nike founder Phil Knight¡¯s son. Oregon¡¯s basketball arena is also named after Mathew Knight, furthering the well-documented relationship between brand and school.

Raiders new head coach Jon Gruden told Pro Football Hall of Fame inductee and former 49ers and Raiders wide receiver Jerry Rice that he would sign him if he still felt that he could play, according to Rice himself on ¡°The Adam Schefter Podcast¡± Wednesday. ¡°I was joking around with Jon Gruden about this because I told him, I said ¡°Jon,¡± I said, ¡°Look, I still got about 80 catches in me.¡± [laughter] And he was like, ¡°Don¡¯t joke with me cause, you know, we¡¯ll seriously sign you, you know, back to the team.¡± But, yeah, you know what? Schefter followed up Rice¡¯s comments by asking him what he would do if Gruden called him and told him that he was going to be signed the 55-year-old Rice said that he ¡°would be on the football field in a heartbeat ..Gronkowski, who has made the Pro Bowl five times since he was picked by the Patriots in the second round out of Arizona in 2010, has been around the Patriots¡¯ practice facility this week. ¡°Gronkowski was present at the facility Monday,¡± Mike Reiss of ESPN reported on Tuesday. ¡°By the time reporters arrived in the locker room, his chair was folded up at his locker, and he had left.¡± Matthew Slater, the Patriots¡¯ special teams captain, told reporters earlier this week that Gronkowski was in, ¡°Pretty good spirits.¡±.All of the adidas AlphaBOUNCE Beyond colorways you see below utilize the brand¡¯s cutting edge BOUNCE midsole, which adds responsive cushioning for an elastic feel with each step. Head over to your local adidas retailer and pick up your favorite version of the AlphaBOUNCE Beyond on January 17th.. Following a successful partnership with the Swoosh on the Nike Vandal High, fashion designer John Elliott is back with Nike again on the Air Force 1 Low. Following a similar aesthetic, Elliott keeps things very simple with this design, so much so, that at first glance, it might just look like the OG white colorway. Upon closer inspection, it is clear that the shoe¡¯s construction has been altered. At the end of 2017, Elliott was tasked with creating this design to further the celebration of the iconic sneaker¡¯s 35th anniversary.Acknowledging that it was difficult to make a unique design while having to keep the sneaker all white, Elliott opted to add dimension and layers to the silhouette in order to add depth and shadows. One of the more unique elements, was the decision to die-cut the midfoot Swoosh and place pebbled leather in its place to create the appearance of going inward. Check out the rest of Elliott¡¯s design process from an Instsgram post he shared back in November below and expect a release in the Fall of 2018.. Currently, this Vapormax Plus is scheduled to arrive at European Nike houses on February 9th, so expect a release in the US shortly after that.

Built with a wider midsole and forged stability zones for quick cuts and a continental outsole for increased traction on any and all surfaces.As part of the Three Stripe¡¯s ¡°Run The Game¡± campaign, professional athletes, Landon Collins, Damian Lillard, and Florencia Garcia are pictured with the collection to demonstrate the importance that running has in each of their respective sports. While the shoe is designed for running, it is not necessarily geared toward runners, as it is meant to help an athlete gain a competitive edge, control tempo, and in the end, dominate their game.. Following its JUICE HK collaboration, the adidas NMD Racer is back once again with two colorways that are fittingly bold to match its new boisterous tooling. First, is a Vivid Pink colorway that uses black details and a matching outsole for contrast, finished off with some colorful hits on its arch stabilizers. Alongside it is the Ash Grey variety that assumes a bit of a more understated color scheme featuring blue and orange accents. Once again, the Three Stripes masterfully blends classic design concepts with contemporary stylings for its newest NMD model. Mark your calendars for February 2nd when both of these new NMD Racer colorways will be available at adidas stockists worldwide.. "We did some good things, though we were able to cut the lead to six and five, but we couldn't get over that hump.". air max women 2017We should point out that of course Boras is going to rail against teams not spending. It¡¯s his job to get players paid.But his point, while harsh, isn¡¯t totally wrong. Fans shouldn¡¯t accept that one-third of teams are already conceding 2018, especially when they aren¡¯t re-investing that money to improve their clubs elsewhere.. Now, the legend has, at the very least, played his last game for the Calgary Flames. So how did a relationship that started with so much promise end so abruptly? There¡¯s no one answer, but rather a few driving factors that have led to Jagr¡¯s imminent departure from Calgary.As a slow-footed ¡®old guy¡¯ in a speed-emphasized, young man¡¯s NHL, production trumps everything. Unfortunately for Jagr and the Flames, his offensive-output has dropped dramatically just one season removed from a 46-point (0.56 PPG) campaign with the Panthers. Through 22 games with Calgary, Jagr¡¯s point-per-game pace of 0.31 is the worst of his career, as is his minuscule 3.1 shooting percentage. His primary point production has dropped off mightily, too, with his primary-points-per-60 (all situations) falling over 30 percent to 1.05 this season from 1.55 in 2016-17.There are reasons for this monumental drop in offensive production that extend far beyond Jagr¡¯s dwindling skillset. A decline in ice time and a lack of opportunities in choice situations has certainly effected Jagr¡¯s output, as has an unusual run-in with the injury bug, which the soon-to-be 46-year-old has avoided for the majority of his 24-season NHL career.Since arriving on youth-laden Flames club, Jagr has seen his overall ice time lessened by almost 25 percent. His 13:03 TOI this season is over four minutes less than the 17:06 he averaged the past three seasons, with the majority of that coming at even strength, and while skating on the Flames¡¯ third and fourth lines. Jagr has played just 34:51 on the power play through 22 games this season, an average of just over a minute-and-a-half per game. Last season with the Panthers, Jagr averaged just under three minutes TOI per contest with his team a man up.Offensive output along with opportunities to produce are down big time, and maybe the biggest reason for that is Jagr¡¯s inability to stay healthy as he has his entire career. Though he was just a young-buck at the tender age of 44-45, Jagr dressed in all 82 games for Florida last season, the sixth time in his career that he¡¯s suited up for every single one of his team¡¯s contests. The eight-time All Star has dressed in at least 75 games an astonishing 16 campaigns during his career, and has missed just 20 of 458 games (4.4%) since his 39-year-old season in 2012-13. This season alone, Jagr has been sidelined for a whopping 49% of Calgary¡¯s game, missing 21 contests with a lingering lower-body injury which has plagued the two-time Stanley Cup champion for the better part of four months.NASCAR fans are used to hearing controversial things out of Kyle Busch¡¯s mouth ¡ª not his brother¡¯s. Well, that changed this week. During the NASCAR Media Tour in Charlotte, N.C., on Tuesday, Kyle said the sport¡¯s emphasis on marketing young drivers is ¡°stupid.¡± Fellow drivers ripped the ever-opinionated Kyle for the comments, but NASCAR itself said the remarks were ¡°fair.¡± Enter Kyle¡¯s brother, Kurt Busch. During a recent appearance on the Domenik Nati Show, Kurt attempted to rationalize his brothers comments. ¡°I agree with certain aspects of what he¡¯s challenged, and then I disagree with other parts of it,¡± Kurt said. But what I think he¡¯s trying to say is we¡¯re promoting these guys, and they.Roger Federer completed his latest domination of the Aussie Open with a 5-set win in the Final on Sunday, his 20th career Grand Slam title. Rafa Nadal stole headlines earlier in the tournament when he wore a sleeveless shirt at the Australian Open recently. It is not a look that Federer dares to replicate. The reason is quite simple, according to Federer. World number one-ranked tennis player Rafa Nadal caused a racket this month. Not because he was forced to withdraw from the Australian Open due to injury, but because he went on the court to play wearing a sleeveless shirt. It is not a trend we can expect Nadal's playing rival Roger Federer to replicate. Not because Federer doesn't love Nadal's.Mike Wells ESPN Staff Writer Close Previously worked at Indianapolis Star, covering the Indiana Pacers for nine seasons Also covered Vikings for St. Paul Pioneer Press Follow on Twitter Mike Wells: I think there¡¯s a pretty chance that NC State defensive lineman Bradley Chubb will still be on the board when the Indianapolis Colts draft at No. 3 overall. That¡¯s because the Cleveland Browns and the New York Giants, the teams with the top two picks, both need quarterbacks for the present or the future. The bigger concern -- if you want to call it that -- is that the Colts might not be in the position to choose between Chubb and Penn State running back Saquon Barkley at No. 3. Indianapolis needs help.Mike Schmitz ESPN With 21-year-old rookie stat-stuffer Ben Simmons and 23-year-old All-Star starter Joel Embiid as cornerstones, the Philadelphia 76ers have one of the most exciting young cores in the NBA. Sprinkle in high-level role starters such as Dario Saric (23) and Robert Covington (27), and young bench contributors T.J. McConnell (25) and Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot (22) and there's reason for the optimism flowing through Philly, even with prized No. 1 pick Markelle Fultz yet to regain form. The Sixers are competitive (No. 7 in the East) while still sitting on young talent and future assets. But with all the well-deserved focus on Philly's talented, young roster and its future draft picks,2018 Dallas Cowboys Mock Draft Tracker - John Hancock, DallasNews Ten experts make their draft predictions for who they believe the Cowboys will select with the 19th overall pick. Here's from Mel Kiper Jr.'s pick: The rest of the experts are picking the following players: DT Maurice Hurst (3), DT Da'Ron Payne (2), DT Christian Wilkins [did not enter the draft], WR Michael Gallup, WR Christian Kirk, S Derwin James, Check out the write-up on each in the orginal article. If you've ever watched the Cowboy war room when they are on the clock in the second round, you can usually see them pretty excited about a player still left on the board. Last year, that excitement came from Chidobe Awuzie, A couple weeks ago, Matt Provenzano went over how the Yankees looked according to Dan Szymborski¡¯s ZiPS projections. Spoiler alert: they look good. Projections are not a fail-safe, and reality will always diverge from what is forecast. That the Yankees project demonstrably better now than they did in recent years, however, can only be taken as a good sign. There are other teams the Yankees must contend with, however. Chief among them are the Red Sox. Indeed, Boston has won the AL East each of the past two seasons. No matter how good the Yankees look moving forward, the Red Sox are still here, and they must be taken seriously. Just how seriously? It helps to once again turn to ZiPS to get a feel.It¡¯s the worst-kept secret in the NBA that the Los Angeles Lakers have plans on luring two big free agents this summer, but in order to do so they will need to clear some salary cap space. Jordan Clarkson and Julius Randle have been mentioned ad nauseum as potential trade candidates, but a somewhat surprising inclusion recently was Larry Nance Jr. Once called the team¡¯s secret weapon by president of basketball operations Magic Johnson, Nance began the season as a starter, but now comes off the bench. Either way, he constantly provides excellent defense and hustle, even as his offensive game hasn¡¯t developed as much as many had hoped, himself included. Many viewed the Lakers possibly shopping.The Cavaliers' Dwyane Wade posted an emotional farewell to Instagram on Saturday after the passing of his agent Henry "Hank" Thomas. A representative from Thomas' agency, CAA, confirmed his passing to Sports Illustrated. Wade had missed the Cavaliers game on Friday night against the Pacers with a "family emergency." In the post, Wade wrote about how Thomas served as a father figure to him and he wished he would be there for the next moments in his life. A post shared by dwyanewade (@dwyanewade) on Jan 27, 2018 at 12:32pm PST Coach Tyronn Lue said Friday that general manager Koby Altman talked with Wade and told him to "take his time" with the issue.

Does no one else see the awkwardness here? We¡¯re not going to sugar coat it¡ªthe stove is so cold it¡¯s actually a freezer. But is there light at the end of this frigid tunnel? These are the one remaining free-agent fit for every team. The Royals have re-signed Alcides Escobar. The Mets have re-signed veteran infielder Jose Reyes. As reported by our Sports Boy Wonder Chris Cotillo,The Cardinals have been fairly quiet since their Dec. 14 trade for Marcell Ozuna. While the Ozuna addition surely moves the needle when it comes to the Cardinals' chances of making the postseason in 2018, needs remain. Mostly, the focus has been on third base. While you can certainly argue that a known quantity in the infield is called for, I'd argue the rotation presents more of a need. Here's why that's the case ... 1. The Cardinals have lost a lot of starts from last season. In keeping with ancient tradition and the rulebook, the Cardinals played 162 games in 2017. Lance Lynn and Mike Leake combined to start 59 of those 162 games, or 36.4 percent of them. Lynn is of course one of the many..

It's almost predictable that an opponent, no matter how inferior, will roll into Oracle Arena and immediately exhibit more energy than the defending champs.The latest example came Tuesday night when the Knicks, lugging a 6-17 road record, built a 31-21 lead after one quarter. The Warriors overtook New York in the second half and earned a 123-112 win, but having to rally after another subpar start was troubling.. Victor Oladipo, the Pacers' lone All-Star, is averaging 24.1 points per game.
