Looking Back at LeBron James’ All-Star Weekend Fits Over the Years

Let’s take it back to ’05. Songs like “Drop It Like It’s Hot” and “Run It!” were being played on iPod shuffles and as for the fashion, everyone’s sense of style was on another level. Think baggy jeans, oversized shirts and…hats. Not fitted, more like, fedoras. Amidst all of this, a young LeBron James was rocking snapbacks, bling and extra large clothes off the court. On the hardwood, he was putting the Cavaliers on his shoulders, averaging 27.2 points, 7.4 rebounds and 7.2 assists per game. During the ’04-05 season, James earned his first NBA All-Star Game appearance. It has been almost 20 yea ..read more

Tyrese Haliburton Opens Up About His Passion for Music and Training with the New Bose Ultra Open Earbuds

Tyrese Haliburton doesn’t know exactly why, but he’s quickly become the unofficial DJ for the Indiana Pacers. Actually, once he’s thought about it a little bit more, it’s most likely from the immense influence of those closest to him. Particularly his family. Haliburton’s music education began in the passenger seat of his dad’s (John) car. Growing up, friends and family would make CDs for John filled with his favorite hits, like Akon’s “Locked Up,” which Haliburton can recite word for word. “The first song and the last song were always the same, so if he had a song that was his song at the tim ..read more

For a young Taylor Rooks, that day felt like, well, the worst day of her life.

Not the 100, or the 200 like she’s used to. But the 400. Rooks starts off hot. But then she forgets to pace herself. The final result? She comes in second to last in the race. I’m never doing this again, she says to herself as she goes up to her parents, who are anticipating an emotional Rooks to be ver ..read more

He remembers the first doctor visit vividly.  Less than 24 hours after suffering a foot injury at a CrawsOver Pro-Am league game in Seattle, Chet Holmgren had flown to Oklahoma City to get it looked at. And as he sat in the x-ray room in front of OKC Thunder GM Sam Presti, a wide range of emotions began to kick in.  Hearing him describe it, it sounds like somewhere between guilt, pain, disappointment, sadness and distress. Probably a little hint of all of them.  It was late August 2022, and the start of training camp was just about a month away. For Holmgren, that signaled the h ..read more
