The 1992 United States men’s Olympic basketball team was known as The Dream Team. This year marked the 25 year anniversary of their gold medal run in Barcelona, and we have already seen some great video from the legendary scrimmage that was had between players on that roster.
In a video posted to the NBA’s YouTube channel on Tuesday, Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green shared his own thoughts about the most famous basketball team of all time.
Green, an Olympian and gold medal winner himself with the U.S.A team in 2016 in Rio de Janero, said of The Dream Team, “They changed the game of basketball forever” and “That’s when people really started to become a fan of [players] not basketball. Larry Bird fans, not just Celtics fans.”
Watch the full video above for some sweet old school footage of the team and more of what Green had to say.
It seems sort of ridiculous to try to pick out 10 plays from the season to highlight from LeBron James. He is no doubt the most important player in the NBA, and his feats each and every night are still a thing to behold.
But the NBA went ahead and tried to rifle through the highlights of the Cleveland Cavaliers star to bring you a video in the middle of summer.
As you would expect, the highlight reel includes lots of chasedown blocks, thunderous dunks, and incredible passes.
Watch the full video above to get a sense of what the 2016-17 NBA season was like for LeBron James.
If you liked the subtle changes in the uniforms for the upcoming NBA season for teams like the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Denver Nuggets, I have bad news for you. Especially if you are a Minnesota Timberwolves fan.
According to a post on Reddit, a user was able to get a screen grab from NBA 2K18 that would represent a new Nike uniform that will likely either be called “The Athlete’s Mindset” or “The Community”.
The Timberwolves recently went through a full-on rebrand, which wasn’t really necessary in my opinion given how great their old color scheme was. Then again, their old court was an abomination, so maybe it’s a trade offoff.
The result is a color scheme that looks exactly like the Seattle Seahawks. Meanwhile, it looks like Timberwolves fans will have something to groan about if they ever see this on their team.
There are a lot of criticisms to be had here, especially if you don’t like the Washington Wizards look.
To me it looks like an AAU Uniform, which is sort of embarrassing to see on an NBA team. These rebrands typically go one way or the other, taking huge risks and winding up pretty bad or going with solid design cues that folks love, with very little opinion landing in the middle.
Sometimes you get the new Charlotte Hornets uniforms, and other times you wind up with neon green as your team’s secondary color.
The upcoming season is going to be a big one for uniforms in the NBA as Nike takes over the rights to produce the jerseys.
We have seen the looks for many teams come across our bow already, including big names like the Cleveland Cavaliers.
On Tuesday, the Denver Nuggets released their uniforms for the 2017-18 NBA season to the masses via social media. The team also held an event in Colorado that showed off the dark navy and white colorways of the kits.
These new iterations aren’t anything groundbreaking for Denver, but at least they aren’t absolutely horrible like we’ve seen for some teams.
Jordan Brand has been killing it with the Kawhi Leonard commercials.
There was the “Could Kawhi score on Kawhi?” commercial.
Now there is this one about his off-season work and respect.
