NBA 2K16 Momentous Trailer

The midnight release I’m most excited about on this #NewMusicFriday is actually not music-related.

It’s NBA 2K16 as the game drops tomorrow for pre-orders and we’re greeted with an all-new trailer to get us even more hyped.

The Momentous trailer highlights all of the stars, and in this one, it’s amazing to see many of their signature subtleties. They have everything from Curry’s mean mug (after the 3 over Dellavedova in Game 5) to Harden’s Lil B cooking motion (of course) to even Chris Bosh videobombing a post-game interview. It’s all great, and the game looks fantastic. Can’t wait to pick it up and just have that be my life until the real NBA season starts, ha!

Jeremy Lin: How to Fit in the NBA

It’s the offseason so videos like this are great this time of year. Especially as Jeremy Lin calls upon many current and former teammates to help him humorously mock NBA stereotypes.

Lin, who played as a rookie with the Golden State Warriors, even talks with Steph Curry, who’s got a YG ringtone, and then does the nae nae with the MVP and his adorable daughter Riley.

Other cameos include Dwight Howard teaching Lin how to dance over Skype, DeAndre Jordan, Kyle Korver, Tyson Chandler, Landry Fields & Jerome Jordan, and new Hornets backcourt mate Kemba Walker. Lots of genuine laughs from the comedy and from the players themselves in some of the outtakes. Great video that ends on an especially powerful bible verse too… 🙂 Enjoy!

Chicago Bulls reveal new court design

What I speculated during a recent NBA2K16 features blog earlier this summer is officially announced today: our hometown Chicago Bulls reveal their new court design!

Bye bye center court basketball (thank the Lord!) as the iconic Bull logo increases in 75% size at center court. Other notable changes/additions include: all black lines, the tyography of the logo on the baselines, and the 4 Chicago stars as the apron on the south sideline. #ChicagoBasketball.

I love all those subtleties and dissecting new court designs in general so it was refreshing to finally see an update for the Bulls. Can’t wait to get back to the UC this season, starting October 6th versus the Bucks to kick off the preseason schedule.

Below, a couple more photos from the Bulls + the old design from the past 20 years and the 90s court that this new design gives off some vintage allusions to.

Steph Curry on Stephen Colbert

Steph Curry had a mini press run in New York City the past 24 hours with the NBA2K16 launch party taking place last night (along with a panel discussion with fellow cover stars Anthony Davis, James Harden, EJ, Kenny, and Shaq… need to see this.)

He was on national TV twice in this span and we gotchu below. First, he goes on Stephen Colbert and touches on a number of topics he’s involved in: 2K, his fight against malaria, golf with Obama. They also embark on a shooting contest… with laundry. Hah! Colbert has been great so far on Late Night and this was especially fun.

This morning, Curry went on Kelly & Michael and after their interview, they did some dribbling drills and shot basketballs for real. Both of these were pretty great too.

One more: Steph’s new commercial with CoachUp today sees him reading his 2009 Draft report set to 0-100. Motivating.

Anthony Davis dunks the sun

This breathtaking photo hit the web on Friday and, well, I believe it.

It’s Anthony Davis dunking the sun!

The timing, lighting, everything had to be perfect. So how did they do this?

Well, Dustin Snipes for Red Bull, explained how he shot it in a very interesting and technical post on his blog (a must-read for photographers out there). Below, here are a couple more shots and a pretty cool behind the scenes video too.
