NBA 2K13 in stores tomorrow! And today, they reveal one of their more powerful TV spots, as you may recognize who nararates the video above. That same person is a special guest caller in one of their recent promotional videos discussing the greatest dunker of all time. High comedy below in case you missed that.
If you're planning on copping 2K on PS3, play your boy Sgt. Tibs online at "gowherehiphop". See ya on the (virtual) court.
Tonight at the new Barclays Center, Jay-Z performed the first of two shows to break in the new Brooklyn arena. He not only debuted a new verse a few hours ago, but also donned the first Brooklyn Nets jersey - wearing number #4, which is his and the wife's lucky number (born December 4th and September 4th respectively. The number is retired for Wendell Latner). You can see him rockin' the away threads in the grainy clear photo below (updated via NBA) and see the official images the NBA just put out above. The unis are now officially on sale.
I was expecting something a little more abstract, but I do dig the font choices and you can't go wrong with a sharp black and white fit. Your thoughts on the uniforms?
To piggyback on the NBA arena post from Kuda today, I got one here courtesy of the Phoenix Suns, who today revealed a new court design via this entertaining 3 minute time-lapse video. Looks like it only takes a handful of people to place panel by panel, ha! Would have expected more for some reason. As for the design itself, I dig the black borders on the baselines and sidelines and the orange is a nice touch too. Blows their previous, bland court design out of the water. Plus, gotta love the two-tone courts. Two-tone courts are as hot of a trend in the NBA as a 2 Chainz feature is right now, ha. Truuuuuu?!
Kawai Leonard and Danny Green sport the new San Antonio Spurs alternate jerseys, which will be worn at various home games during the upcoming 2012-2013 campaign. I really like the number placement on the front and overall I rock with the new threads, especially since they won't replace the classic Spurs jerseys. What do you guys think of them?
Perhaps the biggest new feature of NBA 2K13 we're most anticipating... the Dream Team! This brand new trailer shows the greatest team ever up against it's greatest test ever - the 2012 gold medalists - in a matchup that we're all going to recreate within .007 seconds of putting the game in. Gotta love that ending.
Watch and enjoy above and as a bonus, here's the 'All Star' trailer below that I missed recently. NBA 2K13 is in stores October 2nd. (Ladies, take note. This day is like Madden's release date, part 2.)
Piggybacking on Srirachana's post below, earlier today at the adiZero Rose 3 launch, there was an emotional moment where Derrick shed humble tears of reflection — both personally on what he and his family overcame growing up in Englewood, and with everything going on in our hometown (the crime and the CPS teachers strike which Rose tweeted on the other day) that we really feel Rose cares about. It was simply an incredible moment that epitomizes once again why Chicago roots so hard for one of their own, one who represents the city and one who rises above. Yup, adidas got it right: D. Rose will rise.
Already pumped for October 2nd. And the new official trailer released by 2K Sports for NBA 2K13 just amplified that level even more. All 30 teams are spotlighted in this 2 minute spot so there's a lot of players to look out for, but nothing tops Javale McGee alley ooping himself off the backboard. This game is already shaping up to be the most realistic basketball video game ever.
Apologies on the late pass on this video as Jeremy Lin's latest webisode dropped last month, but hey, I just saw it today and was inspired by it, and think many of you may feel the same. The video takes a look at a couple days of Lin's offseason. The highlights: behind the scenes footage of his upcoming Volvo commercial followed by a rigerous, intense, and precise training regimen of basketball drill work and weight lifting. Then his 'stress release' is some putt-putt, Pop-A-Shot, and skeeball before concluding with a massage to get his body ready for the next intense day of training.
It's cool to see him have fun with his friends and just how hard and detailed his workout is. Would love to try some of these drills and exercises as well, hah! Lastly, Lin always includes a Bible verse in all of his YouTube videos and I particularly liked the one in this episode below. Enjoy!
This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.
