The New England Patriots continue to find ways to celebrate their Super Bowl LI win over the Falcons. The team announced that Nike has created a one of kind Air Force 1 made out of some of the balls used in the game.

The shoe, which is called the “Air Force 1 Low SB51 Comeback” as way to celebrate the biggest comeback in Super Bowl history, is  made out of two footballs that were used in the Patriots 34-28 overtime win over the Falcons.

Here’s more information on when you can see them, if you’re in the area, via the Patriots:

Nike’s footwear development team took materials from the Patriots’ Super Bowl LI game balls and constructed a one-of-a-kind shoe that uniquely pays homage to the greatest comeback in Super Bowl history. The tongue of the shoe is made from the laces of the game balls, and the shoe also features the original markings from the balls displayed throughout the heel, toe box and tongue. The entire shoe was made at the Nike World Headquarters in Beaverton, Oregon.

Nike only made one pair and that pair is going to be auctioned off with all proceeds going to benefit the Boys & Girls Club of Boston.

Jalen Rose Walks Off Set Over Jordan Vs Lebron

Published

on

The debate over Jordan versus Lebron will be one talked about forever. No matter where you go. For some, there is no debate, Jordan all day. For others, Lebron hands down.

Jay Williams joined Get Up! to make the point that in 1 on 1, he would give Lebron the advantage.

“You cannot tell me in a one-on-one game that LeBron James wouldn’t dominate Mike. In a one-on-one game, LeBron James, 6-9, 260 pounds — if the game was to seven, I think LeBron would win 7-3. You can talk about his mentality, but we’re not talking about five-on-five basketball, J-Rose. We’re not talking about the passive LeBron, making the right play … LeBron James is 6-9, 260, he moves like a guard! He moves like a guard. He defends like a guard.”

Jalen responded with the classic Jordan comeback.

“Michael Jordan was all-defensive first team nine times. LeBron James was five times. Michael Jordan led the league in scoring ten times. Ten! LeBron James led the league in scoring once. I’m talking about a guy whose been the best offensive player AND the best defensive player.”

Lebron James and Cleveland Cavaliers were down 2-1 in the series with Boston. On Tuesday Night, James evened the series with a 44 point performance in a 111-102 win. He also made history in the process.

In the second quarter on a pass from JR Smith, James nailed a jumper to pass Kareem Abdul-Jabbar for the all-time lead in Post Season points. That 22-foot jumper was James  2,357th postseason field goal of his career.

James also tied Allen Iverson with the most 40 points games during the playoffs. Both players had 6 games in the playoffs with over 40 points.

“To know where I come from, small city 35 miles south of here, and to hear I’m in the same category or talked about and jumping these greats in the playoffs, it’s pretty cool,” James said. “You hear the scoring, the field goals made, and for a kid that really doesn’t care much about scoring.”

The Cavs will face Boston again on Wednesday night for Game 5.

Paul Pierce Would Leave Cleveland If He Was Lebron

Published

on

Lebron watch will officially start at the end of the NBA playoffs. Every source will claim to be plugged to where the 3x time MVP will go.

Paul Pierce was recently asked in an interview with Dime magazine where he would go if he were in Lebron’s spot.

“It all depends on, I think with LeBron it’s about the opportunity to win a title. The only teams that I see that make sense for him are possibly Houston or Philadelphia. Those guys instantly have a chance to beat, knockoff, or win a championship, with that roster, if you have LeBron. There’s a lot of rumors about the Lakers and all that, but I just don’t see what they can do over there right away. It’d have to be a quick fix to be a contender in one year for Los Angeles. So those are the two teams right there that I feel if he goes there, that’s his best opportunity to win.”

James left Cleveland in Free Agency to join Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh in Miami in 2010. He returned to Cleveland in 2014, but with the current roster it is likely this could be his last season in Cleveland.

Let us know where you think he will go?
