It’s not often that an NBA Champion Point Guard, 3x NBA All-Star and 2x NBA All-Defensive Team basketball player interns at your office. But during this summer’s off season, the Boston Celtics star Rajon Rondo took his working hours to a new office – the GQ Magazine office.
As one the many clothing companies that receives a lot of my money, “Hall of Fame” is easily in my Top 5 favorite clothing brands right now. The season’s change every year, and their clothing gets better and better. Based off the email I received earlier today, their Spring ’12 delivery is going to be crack.
Yesterday marked a big day in sports apparel yesterday, specifically football and the NFL as Nike officially begins their journey as the official on-field outfitters for the 32 NFL teams. Their new Elite 51 Uniforms contain all of Nike’s latest technology which results in the players playing FAST…very fast. So fast, Fast Is Faster. This is the first chapter in a new kind of speed. The kind of speed that pushes boundaries and powers BeastMode. And there’s plenty more to the story, if you can keep up. Fast is Faster.
Was Is Zoo York still relevant? Ehh.
Is Kate Upton?! YES. Not the greatest of her appearances, I nominate Carl’s Jr.
Wow! How dope are these? It looks like Baylor University is getting their Oregon on as they get ready to battle it out in the March Madness tournament. BaylorBears.com revealed their new adizero basketball uniforms earlier today, complete with a description of the new ‘fit:
The new adizero uniforms feature a limited edition design and coloring created only for this season’s NCAA tournament run. Each uniform’s amplified school colors pay homage to the high intensity of March Madness and the electrifying play during the NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Championship.
The new print uses a pixilated pattern instead of a traditional, heavier, solid pattern to shed weight and add speed. The print’s camouflage design is inspired by teamwork and working together to attack the court as a group.
The adidas adizero basketball uniform is the lightest uniform in program history – more than 20 percent lighter than previous uniforms. The uniforms are adidas’ latest innovation to make athletes lighter so they can be faster and perform better on the court.
The site also states that Louisville and Cincinnati will also be wearing similar uniforms, just a different colorway, of course. These lighter unis should help players play a bit quicker and give them more energy. I guess we’ll find out in a couple weeks. Peep after the jump for a bigger version of the full uniforms.
Nike does it again. To reward 8 Nike schools who’ve been dominate in college basketball, the athletic apparel company is lacing up these national championship colleges with newly designed “HyperElite” uniforms. They’ve each been crafted with notched up performance in mind (lightweight fabrics, laser-etched perforations for breathability) and maintain a minimal impact on the environment (96% recycled materials on the jerseys and 100%) on the shorts. While Arizona, Duke, Florida, Kentucky, Syracuse, UNC, and Baylor all are getting these new uniforms, UConn will be the 1 school rocking them when their cutting down the nets come early April. Check out all the new jerseys after the jump.
