The Warriors overtook New York in the second half and earned a 123-112 win, but having to rally after another subpar start was troubling.. The Air Jordan line is a yearly set of sneakers originally serving as the signature model for Michael Jordan..Two of Nike*s OG Air Max 98 colorways are nearing their return, as the ※Gundam§ and ※Navy/Yellow§ colorways are coming soon to stores. While the sneakers were originally slated to drop on January 18th in the US, stateside retailers have confirmed with us that the release of the navy/yellow is now January 26th, and the ※Gundam§ has been postponed to February 24th. 2018 is gearing up to be a big year for the 98, as it is celebrating its 20th anniversary, which should lead to an uptick of drops for one of the more underutilized Air Max designs. A revived enthusiasm for 1990s Nike originals should lead to a much more successful 2018 campaign for this model, much unlike its re-issue in 2014 that several colorways hit sales racks. European retailers, however, are prepared to role out both OG pairs on January 26th for 0 USD. That may be subject to change, so stay tuned for updates.Last March, Nike invited eight young athletes called the ※Imaginairs§ to their World Headquarters in Beaverton, Oregon. They each got to design a crazy colorway of the Air Max Zero, working closely with Nike designers to fine-tune their concepts into realized concepts. It was the first time the Air Max Zero, which debuted in March of 2015, was redesigned for youths. Leading up to Air Max Day 2018, Nike will launch each of these Air Max Zero colorways in limited quantity; see all release dates below.This week in Sneaker News* Top Stories, all eight sneakers that are part of the illustrious Dragon Ball Z x adidas collaboration have been revealed as well as their release months.

Wolken likes Clemson, Alabama, Ohio State and Washington to get to the final four, the same group of teams that reached the Playoff at the end of the 2016 season. : Early 2018 Heisman Trophy odds The Buckeyes' biggest threat in the Big Ten is Michigan State, not Wisconsin, he says and believes the Spartans could benefit from quarterback uncertainty at Michigan and personnel losses at Penn State. As for the possibility of Alabama-Clemson Part IV, Wolken writes: "We*ll see how long it takes before people grow tired of this, but you should go ahead.Jerry Montgomery*s time with Texas A&M didn*t last long. Just a few weeks after agreeing to be the new associate head coach and defensive line coach for the Aggies, Montgomery decided to return to Green Bay to serve as Mike McCarthy*s defensive line coach with the Packers. The Packers announced his new position in Green Bay on Wednesday. ※It was the right move for me and my family,§ Montgomery said, according to Ryan Wood of ※I got on a plane, got back and met with Coach.

Same as it ever was. When the 2018 NASCAR Media Tour started, no one had a clue what topic would emerge to dominate the annual handful of days stock car racing sets aside to do some talking and writing and more talking and then more writing. In years past, the theme has been an easy guess. But this year there was no kickoff news conference from NASCAR itself. There was no big change to the postseason format (thank heavens), no series title sponsorship announcement, no nothing. No touchstone.. The motivation is obvious. Replacing the much-maligned Love and still-recuperating Thomas with two All-Star-caliber players would do wonders for a defense that is a fraction of a point from being the NBA*s worst, even if an almost 33-year-old Gasol is no longer the All-NBA/All-Defensive player he once was and the 30-year-old Conley*s latest injury (a sore left Achilles) has kept him out since mid-November. Pair them with LeBron James, and Grit &n* Grind suddenly takes on new meaning.As reported last week by Marc Stein of The New York Times, the Cavs see two-time All-Defensive First-Teamer Jordan as just the sort of ※elite rim protector and rebounder§ they need to clean up the messes created by their turnstile perimeter defenders. Williams, whose thrilling bid for a surprise All-Star berth came up short, would help revive what*s quietly been a bottom-10 offense over the past month by providing what Cleveland hoped Thomas would: instant scoring, dangerous pull-up shooting and supplementary playmaking to lighten LeBron*s load.You*d assume the Clips won*t feel super-compelled to cut bait on Jordan (and even Williams, despite his expiring status) now that they*re in the midst of a surge that*s put them back in the Western Conference playoff picture. Woj reported earlier this month that they ※aren*t set on trading Jordan at all costs,§ preferring the idea of standing pat to ※bringing back marginal draft picks with heavy protections.§ If the Clippers can haggle the desperate Cavs down to minimal protection on the Nets pick, though, it*s got a chance to be waaaaay better than ※marginal.§ Jettisoning Williams and Jordan would also go a long way toward submarining this year*s squad, thus improving the value of the Clips* own 2018 first (which, unlike next year*s, they control) in the final season before lottery reform hits to change the math on tanking..Major League Baseball free agency has been at a standstill all offseason, and Scott Boras has some things to say about it. Boras was asked about the slow market 〞 in which many of his clients are still looking for jobs 〞 and, as usual, he did not hold back.Boras spoke to Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic about his disappointment with the way teams are acting this offseason.

After the initial debut with the ※Dark Stucco§ colorway in late December, the Swoosh is following up with an attractive matte silver colorway that features a slight iridescent tint that emanates a shimmering rainbow effect.

The Denver Broncos are one of multiple teams likely to target a new quarterback in the top 10 picks of the 2018 NFL draft, but which of them will still be on the board when they make their selection? In the latest 2018 NFL mock draft from CBS Sports, the Broncos luck out by getting the most pro-ready passer in this year*s draft at No. 5 overall, as UCLA*s Josh Rosen falls right into their lap. After the Cleveland Browns opt for USC*s Sam Darnold at No. 1 overall, the New York Giants to pass on Rosen and the rest of this year*s top quarterbacks at No. 2, preferring Penn State running back Saquon Barkley. The Indianapolis Colts add this year*s top edge defender in North Carolina State*s Bradley.The 49ers* five-game winning streak to end the season, compliments of quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo, shot the 49ers down the draft board. San Francisco will pick ninth or 10th, pending the results of a coin flip with the Oakland Raiders, who finished with an identical record and strength of schedule. General manager John Lynch will have some 0-million in cap space and nine selections in the NFL draft to continue rebuilding the roster with coach Kyle Shanahan.

Veteran center Daniel Kilgore and guard.Other than LeBron James scoring his 30,000th point, not a lot is going right for the Cleveland Cavaliers lately. Team unrest has taken over the headlines, as the Cavs have dropped seven of their last 10 games, coinciding with Isaiah Thomas* return to the lineup. Players are reportedly sniping at teammates during team meetings. Nowhere was the team discord more evident than on the floor during the Cavs* 114-102 loss Tuesday to the Spurs. After Kevin Love takes an elbow to the face from LaMarcus Aldridge and falls down, not one Cavs teammate goes over to help him up. In fact, Jae Crowder stepped over Love, who had his hand extended, to take the ball out of bounds. The Spurs* Dejounte Murray seemed..Jordan Brand is ready to start 2018 with a bang as the long-awaited sequel to the 2007 collaboration with Levi*s is set to release on January 17th. The Air Jordan 4, draped completely in denim, takes on some of the Levi*s brand DNA by way of custom leather patches on the tongue, leather labels on the inner tongues, contrast stitching in golden yellow, and the signature red-tab branding that emulates a classic pair of jeans. A stylish contrast is achieved by reversing the denim fabric on the tongue, side panel, and interior lining, while a white/gum outsole combination adds to the blue-collar appeal. The shoes will release worldwide at select retailers, with select stores releasing the accompanying Trucker Jacket in limited quantity.

If you are a member, head on over to the Nike+ app and grab your pair for 0 USD..On Tuesday Jalen Rose dropped a bomb on ESPN's First Take that corroborated Wojnarowski*s report. ※(The Spurs have) been unable to attract elite level, All-NBA-caliber free agents to come play with him,§ Rose, an NBA veteran, said in quotes reported by New England Sports Network. ※We always talk about players going to join large market teams. We never say, &Who*s going to San Antonio to go play with Kawhi?*. Last June, Under Armour officially announced a collaborative partnership with rapper and fashion designer A$AP Rocky. It is no secret that Rocky runs deep, as there are numerous members of the A$AP Mob that have been parts of many of his projects in the past. It appears that Mob member, A$AP Twelvy could be throwing his hat in the ring with UA as he has shared a few instagram posts that are pretty telling.. After a brief hiatus from BOOST in the form of the EQT Support ADV, Parley For the Oceans has shifted its focus to the NMD City Sock silhouette. Carrying Parley*s signature colorway, the green thinking brand uses the striping of the City Sock design to create an attractive aesthetic that combines Spirit Blue and Core Black. Keeping with ongoing trends, this model*s style code comes stitched onto the medial midfoot while Parley*s branding is featured on its insole.Famed hip-hop star Vince Staples has revealed an upcoming collaboration with Converse that will consists of two of the brand*s most iconic silhouettes and a full apparel collection as well.

Originally debuting in 1999, the Air Max Deluxe utilized the full-length Air unit from the 97 model, but with a completely redesigned upper that featured a sock-like neoprene upper, a molded heel, and a classic tongue construction. The Deluxe model never really got the recognition, but this flashy model made use of some wild colorways thanks to printed graphics on the aforementioned neoprene. The dotted lines that track around the shoe added to the sporty look of the shoe, while the TPU overlay added some structure to the model. A release date hasn*t been confirmed, but it looks like your Air Max Deluxe dreams are coming true.. It is now the most popular signature sneaker line ever created..Talib had 31 tackles and an interception return for a touchdown during the 2017 season. He has six interception returns for a touchdown overall since joining the Broncos and was selected for his fifth straight Pro Bowl this season.Since Dejounte Murray replaced Tony Parker in the starting lineup last Sunday, I*ve been curious to see how San Antonio*s offense would look to start games. Even at 35-years-old, Parker remains the Spurs* most dynamic and prolific playmaker, particularly in the half court. Per Second Spectrum data, Parker averages a team-high 10.4 drives per game, and shoots a blistering 53.7% on shots off those drives, one of the best marks in the league among high-volume drivers. Not only is he efficient on those shots, Parker also assists on more than 13% of his drives, the highest percentage on the team. Murray has considerable upside and plenty of strengths, but they mostly manifest on the defensive end..Stepping into the world as a solo retro for the first time is the Air Jordan 18 dressed in a ※Hyper Royal§ color scheme that sports primarily white with metallic silver hardware. As a rare nod to MJ*s Wizards days, the 18 was the last signature sneaker that Jordan laced up in his storied career. Its shroud that houses this models laces is undoubtedly one of the most unique design elements on any Jumpman legacy model. Matching the colorway of the 18, is the Air Jordan 13 in a color scheme that is equally made of primarily white white blue detailing. While this pair is being made available to the public for the first time, it initially debuted as a friends and family colorway, remixing one of the OG 13 colorways by swapping out red with the Hyper Royal you see below. Mark you calendars for January 22nd and March 3rd, when the Air Jordan 18 and Air Jordan 13 ※Hyper Royal§ arrive on shelves.While the release of the initial OFF WHITE x Nike ※The Ten§ collection might be a memory many of you want to forget, it is quite clear that Virgil Abloh isn*t close to done with the Swoosh. One of the more popular silhouettes from the initial drop was the Nike Vapormax that featured a nearly blacked out color scheme if it weren*t for the touches of white on the ※AIR§, the midfoot Swoosh, and the laces.. ※The quality of play, this is going to be a different game,§ McMahon said during his announcement. ※It will be faster, and it will just be a better football game than what everyone else is accustomed to.§. You might look at the way Cleveland*s lagged since Thomas* entry into the lineup, and at Thomas* individual struggles to knock down shots or hold up defensively, and wonder why Lue didn*t decide to move the former Boston Celtics All-Star to the bench. Maybe in favor of, say, reserve Jose Calderon, a steady caretaker who started on the ball during the season*s lone stretch of sustained success. Cleveland went 16-6 in 22 Calderon starts between Nov. 20, 2017, and Jan. 3, 2018, the last game before Thomas* comeback..Then again, there*s some logic to starting small. (Well, starting big.

This one*s just shorter, and not at full speed yet.. Grayson Allen has been suspiciously quiet this season. After spending the first three years of his career becoming the most infamous player in college basketball, the Duke senior has kept a low profile thus far. Aside from one terrific night in Chicago against Michigan State, most of the conversation around Duke has focused on Marvin Bagley, not the play (or antics) of Allen. Perhaps that*s about to change. Allen was involved in multiple sequences that caught the Internet*s attention in a tight loss to Virginia on Saturday. Most notably, the play above where Allen may or may not have tried to trip Virginia*s Kyle Guy while fighting over a screen. Allen has had three highly publicized tripping. He*s not super vocal. If he*s not saying anything, he probably likes it. Actually, one of the obstacles we had with the PG 1 was just getting him to say when he didn*t like something. He*s kinda like the guy who doesn*t want to hurt your feelings, but we encourage him to tell us how he really feels. That was something we had to break through, for him to be comfortable enough to say what he wanted to say to us, and we*ve that for a while now.. roshe two beigeWe should point out that of course Boras is going to rail against teams not spending. It*s his job to get players paid.Kicking out the owners of these clubs is an extreme suggestion, but asking for change isn*t unreasonable considering the state of things.After the Cleveland Cavaliers* latest dispiriting loss 〞 a Tuesday night defeat at the hands of a San Antonio Spurs team playing without Kawhi Leonard, Pau Gasol, Manu Ginobili and Rudy Gay 〞 head coach Tyronn Lue decded enough was enough: he needed to change a starting lineup that*s been absolutely steamrolled over the past three weeks.

The Jumpman chooses to keep the upper section tonal with premium suede dressed in white surrounding a metallic gold Wings logo. Dipped in tan, this offering*s toe box is the clear focal point as it is something that has never been seen on the sneaker that started is all.

When the offseason began, there seemed to be a zero-percent chance the Phils ended up with a free-agent ace.

Nike*s newest Air Max innovation 每 the Air Max 270 每 is set to make its world debut soon, with multiple colorways equipped with engineered mesh uppers are scheduled for February 1st releases.

The brand*s Roadsta silhouette will be the vessel for the collaboration, which you can see here dressed in a cement or stone-like tooling that utilizes patent leather with BAPE*s signature star logo emblazoned along the side panes of the sneaker. While the Roadsta is usually dressed in boisterous color schemes 每 the likes of its previous Pharrell collaborations 每 this design sports a relatively monochromatic patent leather construction. Stamp*s Instagram caption reveals that the Tokyo-based brand has served as an inspiration for him throughout his career, and this particular collaboration is inspired by the first meeting he had with BAPE 12 years ago. As of now there is no release information available for the Stampd x BAPE Roadsta, but keep it locked to Sneaker News for updates.! What*s new with Paul George*s next signature shoe is both obvious and hidden. For one, the shoe doesn*t feature a strap anymore, and the interior bootie has been replaced for a classic tongue construction. The outsole traction has been spaced out for better grip, and the Zoom bag is 2 millimeters thicker and sits directly under the foot. All of these substantial changes deliver exactly what Paul wants and needs in his shoe. There are several discoverable elements that pay tribute to his close-knit family, who is regularly present during Paul*s design brainstorms with Tony. Furthermore, the right heel of the shoes references the tragic injury Paul faced in 2014, a story that will continue on with the PG signature line as a reminder of his epic comeback.?"And so maybe someone coming on here, staff can do that.

    • Now, the legend has, at the very least, played his last game for the Calgary Flames. So how did a relationship that started with so much promise end so abruptly? There*s no one answer, but rather a few driving factors that have led to Jagr*s imminent departure from Calgary.As a slow-footed &old guy* in a speed-emphasized, young man*s NHL, production trumps everything. Unfortunately for Jagr and the Flames, his offensive-output has dropped dramatically just one season removed from a 46-point (0.56 PPG) campaign with the Panthers. Through 22 games with Calgary, Jagr*s point-per-game pace of 0.31 is the worst of his career, as is his minuscule 3.1 shooting percentage. His primary point production has dropped off mightily, too, with his primary-points-per-60 (all situations) falling over 30 percent to 1.05 this season from 1.55 in 2016-17.There are reasons for this monumental drop in offensive production that extend far beyond Jagr*s dwindling skillset. A decline in ice time and a lack of opportunities in choice situations has certainly effected Jagr*s output, as has an unusual run-in with the injury bug, which the soon-to-be 46-year-old has avoided for the majority of his 24-season NHL career.Since arriving on youth-laden Flames club, Jagr has seen his overall ice time lessened by almost 25 percent. His 13:03 TOI this season is over four minutes less than the 17:06 he averaged the past three seasons, with the majority of that coming at even strength, and while skating on the Flames* third and fourth lines. Jagr has played just 34:51 on the power play through 22 games this season, an average of just over a minute-and-a-half per game. Last season with the Panthers, Jagr averaged just under three minutes TOI per contest with his team a man up.Offensive output along with opportunities to produce are down big time, and maybe the biggest reason for that is Jagr*s inability to stay healthy as he has his entire career. Though he was just a young-buck at the tender age of 44-45, Jagr dressed in all 82 games for Florida last season, the sixth time in his career that he*s suited up for every single one of his team*s contests. The eight-time All Star has dressed in at least 75 games an astonishing 16 campaigns during his career, and has missed just 20 of 458 games (4.4%) since his 39-year-old season in 2012-13. This season alone, Jagr has been sidelined for a whopping 49% of Calgary*s game, missing 21 contests with a lingering lower-body injury which has plagued the two-time Stanley Cup champion for the better part of four months.NASCAR fans are used to hearing controversial things out of Kyle Busch*s mouth 〞 not his brother*s. Well, that changed this week. During the NASCAR Media Tour in Charlotte, N.C., on Tuesday, Kyle said the sport*s emphasis on marketing young drivers is ※stupid.§ Fellow drivers ripped the ever-opinionated Kyle for the comments, but NASCAR itself said the remarks were ※fair.§ Enter Kyle*s brother, Kurt Busch. During a recent appearance on the Domenik Nati Show, Kurt attempted to rationalize his brothers comments. ※I agree with certain aspects of what he*s challenged, and then I disagree with other parts of it,§ Kurt said. But what I think he*s trying to say is we*re promoting these guys, and they.Roger Federer completed his latest domination of the Aussie Open with a 5-set win in the Final on Sunday, his 20th career Grand Slam title. Rafa Nadal stole headlines earlier in the tournament when he wore a sleeveless shirt at the Australian Open recently. It is not a look that Federer dares to replicate. The reason is quite simple, according to Federer. World number one-ranked tennis player Rafa Nadal caused a racket this month. Not because he was forced to withdraw from the Australian Open due to injury, but because he went on the court to play wearing a sleeveless shirt. It is not a trend we can expect Nadal's playing rival Roger Federer to replicate. Not because Federer doesn't love Nadal's.Mike Wells ESPN Staff Writer Close Previously worked at Indianapolis Star, covering the Indiana Pacers for nine seasons Also covered Vikings for St. Paul Pioneer Press Follow on Twitter Mike Wells: I think there*s a pretty chance that NC State defensive lineman Bradley Chubb will still be on the board when the Indianapolis Colts draft at No. 3 overall. That*s because the Cleveland Browns and the New York Giants, the teams with the top two picks, both need quarterbacks for the present or the future. The bigger concern -- if you want to call it that -- is that the Colts might not be in the position to choose between Chubb and Penn State running back Saquon Barkley at No. 3. Indianapolis needs help.Mike Schmitz ESPN With 21-year-old rookie stat-stuffer Ben Simmons and 23-year-old All-Star starter Joel Embiid as cornerstones, the Philadelphia 76ers have one of the most exciting young cores in the NBA. Sprinkle in high-level role starters such as Dario Saric (23) and Robert Covington (27), and young bench contributors T.J. McConnell (25) and Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot (22) and there's reason for the optimism flowing through Philly, even with prized No. 1 pick Markelle Fultz yet to regain form. The Sixers are competitive (No. 7 in the East) while still sitting on young talent and future assets. But with all the well-deserved focus on Philly's talented, young roster and its future draft picks,2018 Dallas Cowboys Mock Draft Tracker - John Hancock, DallasNews Ten experts make their draft predictions for who they believe the Cowboys will select with the 19th overall pick. Here's from Mel Kiper Jr.'s pick: The rest of the experts are picking the following players: DT Maurice Hurst (3), DT Da'Ron Payne (2), DT Christian Wilkins [did not enter the draft], WR Michael Gallup, WR Christian Kirk, S Derwin James, Check out the write-up on each in the orginal article. If you've ever watched the Cowboy war room when they are on the clock in the second round, you can usually see them pretty excited about a player still left on the board. Last year, that excitement came from Chidobe Awuzie, A couple weeks ago, Matt Provenzano went over how the Yankees looked according to Dan Szymborski*s ZiPS projections. Spoiler alert: they look good. Projections are not a fail-safe, and reality will always diverge from what is forecast. That the Yankees project demonstrably better now than they did in recent years, however, can only be taken as a good sign. There are other teams the Yankees must contend with, however. Chief among them are the Red Sox. Indeed, Boston has won the AL East each of the past two seasons. No matter how good the Yankees look moving forward, the Red Sox are still here, and they must be taken seriously. Just how seriously? It helps to once again turn to ZiPS to get a feel.It*s the worst-kept secret in the NBA that the Los Angeles Lakers have plans on luring two big free agents this summer, but in order to do so they will need to clear some salary cap space. Jordan Clarkson and Julius Randle have been mentioned ad nauseum as potential trade candidates, but a somewhat surprising inclusion recently was Larry Nance Jr. Once called the team*s secret weapon by president of basketball operations Magic Johnson, Nance began the season as a starter, but now comes off the bench. Either way, he constantly provides excellent defense and hustle, even as his offensive game hasn*t developed as much as many had hoped, himself included. Many viewed the Lakers possibly shopping.The Cavaliers' Dwyane Wade posted an emotional farewell to Instagram on Saturday after the passing of his agent Henry "Hank" Thomas. A representative from Thomas' agency, CAA, confirmed his passing to Sports Illustrated. Wade had missed the Cavaliers game on Friday night against the Pacers with a "family emergency." In the post, Wade wrote about how Thomas served as a father figure to him and he wished he would be there for the next moments in his life. A post shared by dwyanewade (@dwyanewade) on Jan 27, 2018 at 12:32pm PST Coach Tyronn Lue said Friday that general manager Koby Altman talked with Wade and told him to "take his time" with the issue.

Does no one else see the awkwardness here? We*re not going to sugar coat it〞the stove is so cold it*s actually a freezer. But is there light at the end of this frigid tunnel? These are the one remaining free-agent fit for every team. The Royals have re-signed Alcides Escobar. The Mets have re-signed veteran infielder Jose Reyes. As reported by our Sports Boy Wonder Chris Cotillo,The Cardinals have been fairly quiet since their Dec. 14 trade for Marcell Ozuna. While the Ozuna addition surely moves the needle when it comes to the Cardinals' chances of making the postseason in 2018, needs remain. Mostly, the focus has been on third base. While you can certainly argue that a known quantity in the infield is called for, I'd argue the rotation presents more of a need. Here's why that's the case ... 1. The Cardinals have lost a lot of starts from last season. In keeping with ancient tradition and the rulebook, the Cardinals played 162 games in 2017. Lance Lynn and Mike Leake combined to start 59 of those 162 games, or 36.4 percent of them. Lynn is of course one of the many.

  • There are definitely many ballparks more pitcher-friendly than Citizens Bank Park, but will one of those NL teams with a spacious park have enough money and enough interest in Darvish or Arrieta? The Brewers, for example, have been connected to Darvish but Miller Park is homer-friendly with a great batter's eye.

  • Mike Zimmer is in the market for a starting quarterback and an offensive coordinator. Two job openings linked closely together that will have a significant impact on the direction the Vikings take following an NFC Championship Game appearance. Zimmer has to get this right. Both decisions. Often when teams go searching for a quarterback and offensive coordinator, something went horribly wrong. They're usually starting over. That's not Zimmer's reality. His team is built to contend now. The Vikings' no-show dud in Philadelphia won't lower expectations by meaningful degree, as long as Zimmer and general manager Rick Spielman don't whiff on those two pressing needs 每 quarterback and offensive coordinator.That's why Bill Belichick credited one current and one former member of the coaching staff, Josh McDaniels and Mike Lombardi, with helping the Patriots land those two key offensive cogs a week-and-a-half before taking on the Eagles in Super Bowl LII.Amendola, who scored two fourth-quarter touchdowns in the AFC title game against the Jaguars to help the Patriots overcome a 10-point deficit, spent just 2011 season with McDaniels (then the Rams offensive coordinator), and Amendola was hurt for the majority of that year, playing in just one regular-season game.Though that doesn't seem like much, Belichick said McDaniels' experience with Amendola was critical in knowing he was a player the Patriots should pursue. Without any assurances that Wes Welker would be back in 2013, that's exactly what they did. Really, the light went on with Josh," Belichick said Wednesday. "Josh was here. Josh had had him in St. Louis, and we saw a good player in St. Louis, but you didn't see all the things behind the scenes that you kind of can see when you actually have the player on your team.Josh saw that, and he made me aware of -- us aware -- of what all the things that Danny does, and how well he does [them], and what his skills were and so forth. That's kind of when it started, and once we got him here, then all that became evident to everybody who works with him."

  • You mentioned in our last interview regarding the first shoe that Paul wasn*t too familiar with Nike cushioning, that he wouldn*t be able to tell the difference between Zoom and Lunar. With one full process under his belt, has he matured as a co-designer?He definitely learned from the process with the PG1 and even with the 2. He*s more in tune with what*s going on with his shoe. Before he wasn*t really able to articulate about it, but now he*ll be able to tell you what*s exactly going on in the shoe. Honestly, he*s still learning about the design process, but he has a better grasp on technology and those types of things.Paul has always been super-welcoming and very easy to get along with. There was never any awkwardness or anything. He*s just super chill 每 he comes from a small town called Palmdale and he*s used to growing up laid back, and that*s just the kind of guy he is. We*re closer, and I know more about what he*s thinking now, which is good. From that standpoint, he knows me a little better, I know him a little better, and that*ll continue to develop as it goes.
