Raptors reveal new jerseys at OVO Fest

The subscript to OVO Fest was a cool tidbit of NBA news as the Raptors let their ambassador reveal their new away alternate threads. Drake went with the free agent signee/Toronto-bred Cory Joseph, who undoubtedly chose the number 6 for his hometown. The OVO colorway has always been a hit and translates well to the jerseys, which will likely translate well to the court too. Probably Philly’s the best, ha! What another checkmate move that’ll be for Drizzy.

Below you’ll see him rockin the threads and above, all of the options the Raptors will have this year. The colors are tight but I’m not totally feelin’ the arched ‘Raptors’ and close spacing with the numbers. It makes me want last year’s unis back, in fact. But that said, the OVO one is gonna do some numbers.

TIBS EDIT: Nillz still in regular season form.

Damian Lillard, Andrew Wiggins, & Jimmy Kimmel for Foot Locker x adidas

Just the names involved got me to click. Lillard and Wiggins are one thing — both Rookies of the Year and adidas athletes. But with Jimmy Kimmel? I had to see this.

And it delivered. Comedy gold. I hope the Bobby Butter story continues. (And lowkey the cutaway scene is pretty great too. These bball stars have some natural comedic timing.)

That’s not why Jimmy Kimmel is trending around the world today. Watch his emotional and poignant take on the unjust murder of Cecil the Lion below. *applauds* 

Nick Young Drew League Buzzer Beater

October seems so far away right now. But in the meantime, we got an SC Top 10 highlight from Swaggy P in the Drew league. Watch this entire sequence, wooow. The slick behind the back dribble too.

Beef Special: Jalen & Jacoby

With all the beefing that’s been going on this week, it’s only right that Jalen & Jacoby pop the trunk and give the people what they want!

I don’t miss an episode and felt the heavy hip hop crossover here was definitely worth sharing below. Again, look at the beefs: Ghost vs. Action, Meek vs. Drake, Taylor vs. Nicki, and even in the NBA — Serge Ibaka vs. Matt Barnes, and Shaq vs. Scottie Pippen. Whoo! Enjoy this 30+ minute pod for your Fridays.

More new NBA uniforms revealed

Ah, the year of NBA uni leaks continues.

Last night, this leaked image of the NBA catalogue showcases more new uniforms that have yet to be revealed — namely some new alternates and “Pride” threads that are all very interesting to say the least. I’m sure Houston fans will appreciate the Clutch City unis. The orange OKC alternate jersey jumps out to me and looks pretty flames from the grainy first impression (so does the unknown team next to them…) One more jersey that’s hidden: Milwaukee has an alternate jersey and it looks like it explodes the new logo on black. *sigh* There goes my dream of the “lake blue” alternates, but I still can hope for 2016.

Plus, you also get a look at the Hardwood Classics promised on select dates as the Warriors’ classic “The City” throwbacks will assuredly be a hit on top of yesterday’s Hickory High threads that are definitely a hit. Also a hit: and to bring it back to the hometown, the Bulls with the MJ rookie jerseys. That’s probably my favorite NBA jersey I own. Gotta love “Chicago” in cursive. Squint up above and study for the ones I didn’t mention as well.

NBA Stars Music Motivation

James Harden, CP3, and Allen Iverson were among the stars in attendance at the NBAPA Player Awards that aired on BET last night (recorded Sunday in Vegas.)

Below, BET put together a classic, but always interesting video asking the above stars and more what they listen to before games. CP3 is pretty set on Weezy, who also performed “Glory” live on stage below, and AI… well, he’s pretty set on a certain artist too and it’s probably one you wouldn’t think of at first. Enjoy!
