Basketball Never Stops

Even though the NBA Lockout is going on right now, it isn't stopping NBA Superstars Lebron James (above), Carmelo Anthony, and Kevin Durrant from competing and doing what they love. These guys along with other NBA players gathered at Morgan State University in Baltimore to play an exhibition game last Tuesday night. Kevin Durant scored a game-high 59 points, but his team lost 149-141 to Carmelo Anthony's Baltimore-based Melo League squad, which included Anthony, LeBron James and Chris Paul. LeBron ended up with 32 and Anthony finished with 27. Paul shared the ball, piling up 17 assists. Despite the stats it was the energy that really got people out of their seats. Its little things like this that let us know basketball is going to be okay.

"We want to work it out. We've got to get the fans what they want, and they want to see basketball. They need that and we need it." -Carmelo Anthony #15 New York Knicks

Woah, Kardashians

The business oriented sisters everyone knows as The Kardashians have been all the hype these days and boy have they outdone themselves once again. Rolling Stones/Vogue photographer, Annie Leibovitz, had the pleasure of shooting the Kardashian's latest marketing campaign for their Sear's clothing line and lets just say there isn't much "clothing" involved. The sister's sure do know what sells, we'll hand it to them. If only the television show could feature more of their promiscuous clothing line. We can only hope.



Get Shook

Holand DJ/Producer Shook has been climbing to the top of every hype chart on the internet and its not hard to see why.

Remixes these days often lose the original feel of the tune, but not with our man Shook. The young producer has mastered marinating his style within a tune, all while keeping the original feel of it. Check out some of his hit tracks below and listen for yourself. I guess what they always say is true; "The sun never sets on a bad-ass."

It wasn't until we heard the tune remixed that it was clear what a great combination of noise it really is. Our boy Diplo recently "retweeted" this impressive remix of the dubstep collaboration put together by DJ Swizzymack.
