Minnesota Timberbulls

This logo is hilarious. Luol Deng signs with the Minnesota Timberwolves to reunite with Tom Thibodeau, his coach when they were with the Chicago Bulls. Also on the roster are 3 other former Bulls from the early 2010’s. What are you (re)creating, Thibs? Ha

signing Deng seems like a continuation of some strange quest by Thibodeau to recreate the Chicago Bulls from earlier this decade.

With Jimmy Butler, Taj Gibson, Derrick Rose and now Deng on the roster, all they need is Joakim Noah — also a free agent — and they can put out an entire lineup of Thibs’ former Bulls players. Now, Butler is still a great player, obviously, and Gibson was a good addition, but it’s easy to see why this roster overhaul can be frustrating to Wolves fans.

Courting The King

With billboards popping up around the country to court LeBron James, ESPN asked 30 artists with ties to each NBA city to imagine every team’s pitch to LeBron in free agency. Love Denver and Portland, terrific concepts!

THE JOKER AWAITS THE KING
The Nuggets have the league’s best passing center in Nikola Jokic. Imagine how beautiful their offense would look after adding the league’s best passing forward. If Nuggets fans want, maybe LeBron could entice his buddy Melo to make a Denver homecoming, too.

BLAZE A DIFFERENT TRAIL
Instead of keeping Portland weird, LeBron could keep Portland winning by joining Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum. The Blazers haven’t been to the Finals since 1992 and haven’t won it all since 1977, so maybe adding LeBron is the key to ending those droughts.

L.A. KING
“LeBron to the Lakers” has been a rumor since, oh, approximately 2002, before he was even in the league. It’s finally time to turn those Hollywood dreams into reality. Kobe fans might even stop criticizing LeBron’s every move. … Unless he fails to win them five more rings.

Kyrie Irving Unveils Nike Kyrie 4 ‘Wheaties’ With Incredible Packaging

The Shoe of Champions? Kyrie Irving has teamed up with Wheaties for a very special edition of his Nike Kyrie 4 signature sneaker.

His next food-inspired collaborative sneaker after teaming with Pepsi for a promotional Nike Kyrie 1 and Krispy Kreme donuts for a tasty take on the Kyrie 2, Irving has unveiled his Kyrie 4 “Wheaties” — and the packaging is incredible.

Along with the pair of sneakers — which are even packaged in a clear cereal box-style baggie — the box includes a Kyrie-branded cereal bowl, spoon and single-serving mini-box of Wheaties.

Nike and Kyrie pulled out all the stops for this amazing release, which in addition to teaming up with Wheaties also appears to be a bit of promotion for his upcoming “Uncle Drew” movie, releasing June 29 and starring the electrifying baller’s old-aged alter ego.

The Nike Kyrie 4 “Wheaties” is rumored to be limited to only 100 pairs, and no release information has been announced yet. It’s likely that the special packaging will be gifted only to select media members and influencers, but stay tuned for any retail release information. The Kyrie Irving Wheaties cereal box will be hitting grocery store shelves soon.

NBA 2K League (Coming 2018)

NBA 2K League says of logo: “Absent is a human silhouette, which speaks to the inclusive nature of the league and the opportunity for any type of player to try out – young or old, male or female, based domestically or abroad.”

Heatcheck & Blazer5 – Awesome names!
