Nike CEO: “It’s Possible LeBron Could Outsell Jordan In Future” (Video)

Nike has always had the luxury of getting the top notch athletes to represent their basketball department, and they have been succeeding with it for decades now. It all began with Michael Jordan in 1985, which is now what you see as Jordan Brand today. In 2003, Nike was able to get LeBron James. Kobe Bryant and Kevin Durant soon followed, and now soon Kyrie Irving. Out of all the athletes mentioned, James poses as the best option to be on a MJ-level for Nike and its business. James has been the top player in the NBA for years now, and his legacy just continues to grow. Could LBJ soon pass MJ himself when it comes to sneakers and what not for the swoosh? Nike CEO Mark Parker thinks it’s definitely possible for the Cleveland Cavaliers star small forward. “MJ is a tough act to follow in that sense, but I never say never. It’s amazing the business that has – we’ve established around Michael Jordan, around his legend and legacy,” Parker said in an interview with Bloomberg. “I’ve been there since day one when we introduced the first Jordan shoe. And to see what’s happened with that brand and with Michael, he’s the athlete other athletes love. He’s the one that when he walks in a room everybody’s jaw drops. They’re in awe of him. It’s really interesting to watch that.” James currently sells the most shoes out of any active NBA player right now, having $300 million in sales last year with Nike. It’s definitely possible he could reach Jordan stature, especially since there’s already been talks of actually retroing some of LeBron’s old sneakers. Do you think James could surpass Jordan in future? Read More »

Dana White Confirms Ronda Rousey vs Cat Zingano at UFC 182

Cat Zingano earned the #1 contender spot in the UFC’s bantamweight division in April of 2013 but a torn ACL and the death of her husband kept Cat out for over a year. She returned at UFC 178 and looked as good as ever in a 3rd round KO of Amanda Nunes. That performance must’ve been enough to convince UFC President Dana White that she’s ready for a shot at the champ, Ronda Rousey. Rousey has destroyed her last few opponents without having to depend on her signature arm bar. She’s added to her stand up game by becoming a more precise and powerful striker. Zingano (9-0, 2-0 UFC) is the next one in line to dethrone Rousey and show that she’s not unbeatable. UFC 182 takes place in Las Vegas on January 3rd and is headlined by Jon Jones vs Daniel Cormier. The addition of Rousey vs Zingano could push the event to the forefront of the all-time UFC PPV list. It’ll be interesting to see who else is added to the UFC 182 card in the following months.

Autopsy Shows Michael Brown Was Shot At Close Range

The unarmed black teen who was killed by a white police officer and has sparked a debate about police assault in America has finally had his autopsy report unveiled by the St. Louis County Medical Examiner’s Office. Michael Brown, 18, was fatally shot dead in Ferguson, Mo., in August, and according to the report, the first few bullets struck his hand at close range. According to The St. Louis Post-Dispatch , Suzanne McCune, the administrator for the county medical examiner, acknowledged that the report was accurate, but said that the office did not release it to the newspaper. The autopsy states that no powder stipple (or mark) was identified on the six entry wounds to Brown’s head, chest and arms. Experts who have given their opinions, but are not involved in the investigation, told the Post-Dispatch that the autopsy suggests a struggle at close range. Dr. Michael Graham said that the examination indicated a shot traveled from the tip of Brown’s right thumb toward his wrist. The official report notes an absence of stippling that indicate a shot fired at relatively short range. Graham said, “Sometimes when it’s really close, such as within an inch or so, there is no stipple, just smoke.” The county reports differ in some ways from the autopsy conducted at the request of Brown’s family, which concluded the shots were fired from at least a foot away and as far as 30 feet away. The county report claims that Officer Darren Wilson’s gun went off during the struggle between himself and Brown and that afterwards, Brown fled. Wilson eventually gave chase and opened fire when Brown turned and starting running back toward the officer. Pathologist Michael Baden counters the county’s autopsy report, as he was the individual who examined Michael Brown at the behest of the family. He concluded that the bullet wounds found in Brown’s arms could have been sustained by putting his hands up or crossing his arms. SOURCE: USA Today Read More »

Substitute Teacher Gives Oral Sex to HS FBall Player On Her 1st Day at Job

She didn’t even wait one day…… A substitute teacher in D.C. accused of having sex with a student on her first day at the school pleaded not guilty. Symone Greene, 22, was working at Options Public Charter School in Northeast D.C. on Friday when she first met the victim, a 17-year-old football player, according to court documents. The student told police he was working as an office assistant and helped Green twice that day in her English class. The student says he flirted with Greene during class, gave her his cell phone number, and later received a text message from her. While the student did not recall the exact contents of their messages, he said he did ask if she was “kinky.” She allegedly responded, ‘I don’t tell[;] I show,” court documents state. Toward the end of the school’s pep rally that day, the teen went to Greene’s classroom, where she allegedly performed oral sex behind the teacher’s desk. The victim recorded the sex act and later shared the video with his teammates and a childhood friend. I have to admit at 17, I probably would have showed my boys too. Student asked substitute teacher to perform sex act the same number of times as his football jersey number. — Mark Segraves (@SegravesNBC4) October 22, 2014 H/T NBC Washington Read More »
