Miami Turnover Chain Meets A McLaren

Published

on

The Miami Hurricanes have made to the school’s first-ever ACC Championship game. To celebrate the Canes making it to Charlotte, Adidas decided to put the team’s iconic Turn Over Chain on a McLaren.  The McLaren is just an amazing addition to one of the biggest sports stories of the year.

When Miami players cause a turnover and recover the turnover, players are given a five-pound gold chain with a jewel-encrusted “U” logo.  The 10-karat-gold Cuban link chain is as “Miami” as Miami could get. The massive “U” charm filled with orange and green sapphire stones.

The chain has even taken over merchandise. Former UM player D.J. Williams created the best turnover shirt with his Dyme Lyfe company. “We were like, ‘This is Miami, people want flashy,'” Williams said. “I wanted the turnover chain on my shirt to be oversized, just like the actual chain. It’s ridiculous, it’s obnoxious, but that’s what makes it cool. I want the shirt to look like when you wear it, you’re going to have lower back problems due to how heavy the Cuban link is.”

The Hurricanes will have a tough task on their hands knocking off the defending National Champions, the Clemson Tigers in prime time.

Kobe Byrant’s Jersey Retirement Game Is The Most Expensive NBA Game

Published

on

The Lakers are set to retire Kobe Bryant’s jerseys on Dec. 18th. The Lakers are retiring both Bryant’s No. 8 and No. 24 numbers on Monday against the Golden State Warriors, and prices for the game and ceremony at Staples Center are some of the most expensive NBA tickets in years.

Already a major attraction with Steph Curry and the Warriors in town, a chance to honor a Lakers legend is a chance for scalpers to make some sweet, sweet cash off the event. The secondary market for the Bryant retirement game is pretty insane, to the tune of $1,477 per seat on average.

The highest seats are courtside of course with tickets going for $12,000 dollars. Even the nosebleed seats average about $600 a seat.

The last ticket that cost more was actually Bryant’s last game, which cost an average of more than $2,000 each. That’s far and away the most expensive, but other big-budget tickets are a bit closer to Kobe’s retirement night costs.

Since it’s the most expensive game expect 2 Chainz to show up with Trappy.

Under Armour Dropping Off Curry 4’s With Drones

Published

on

Under Armour will be giving away autographed Curry 4s to fans in the Bay area.

UA will be delivering the Steph Curry signature shoes with Drones.

Here’s how it works, per Nice Kicks:

First, you have to follow Under Armour basketball on Instagram (@uabasketball). At 10 a.m. PT on Saturday, Dec. 16, there will be an “interactive scavenger hunt” on a Bay Area map that you can get access to and search through. When you find a “drop zone pin” on that map, you’ll get a QR code that will lead you to a “Drop Zone” where the drone delivery happens.

In other words, follow @uabasketball on Instagram, check that for a map at 10 a.m. on Saturday, and follow the directions on your phone screen from there.

 

If this marketing promotion goes well, expect more brands to create dropzones in other major cities.

Westbrook Defeats Sixers In Triple Overtime

Published

on

Russell Westbrook wouldn’t be denied in Philly. The trash talk from Joell Embiid seemed to fuel the reigning MVP even more.

The Thunder won 119-117 in triple overtime, and Westbrook recorded yet another triple-double by scoring 27 points with 18 rebounds and 15 assists. Westbrook is now averaging a triple-double against the 76ers dating back to the 2013-14 season.

Paul George and Carmelo Anthony chipped in with 24 points apiece, and the three stars accounted for 23 of the Thunder’s 25 points in extra time.

Joel Embiid helped Philly erase an eight-point halftime deficit, scoring a game-high 34 points with eight rebounds and six assists, but it wasn’t enough to stop them from picking up their fifth loss in six games.

Embiid continued to take shots at Westbrook after the game. “They won the game, I give them a lot of credit, they did a lot of (good) things, but I mean, the guy shot 10 for 33, I wish I would have shot 33 times, I guess we would have had a better chance of actually winning the game,” Embiid told reporters after the game.

Even Lebron James chimed in about the game.

After the game, Westbrook waved goodbye to Embiid and his trolling.

“I was telling him, `Go home,” Westbrook said.
