Wear Testing The New Nike Hyperdunk+

At every media event, the journalist basketball game goes the same way: It's one of the highlights of the weekend, perhaps the only time everyone gets a chance to truly vent, and after spending so much time watching, talking and writing about basketball, it all comes pouring onto the court in a wave of reckless energy, frenetic excitement and predictably ugly basketball.


Dime Q&A: Jus Fly On His Best Slams & His 5 Favorite NBA Dunkers

The highlight of this year's World Basketball Festival, for me, might've been wear testing the craziest technology I've ever seen in a sneaker (the Nike Lunar Hyperdunk 2012), sitting front row along the baseline for Team USA's intrasquad scrimmage or perhaps even chilling in a suite with the people at Nike for the USA/Brazil exhibition game.

The Best Of The World Basketball Festival 2012

Sitting in section 106, gray suede Converse Pro Leathers on my feet, a roast beef panini on a plate in my hand, peering down at the Verizon Center court to check out Team USA nearly blow an anticipated exhibition against Brazil, it hit me.

World Basketball Festival Wrap-Up


Rise and give honor to Nike for continuously owning my paychecks for years. It's overwhelming when I go to do these recaps of events of this magnitude. Most of the World Basketball Festival's larger spectacles -- the televised match-up between USA & France at Madison Square Garden, Team USA's intersquad game on a custom stage at Radio City followed by Jay-Z's performance, the screening of Air Force 1: Anatomy Of An Urban Legend at The Apollo -- all go without adjectives to describe how once-in-a-lifetime they feel in the moment.
