Jason Kidd Retires After 19 Years

20130603-125818.jpg
19 seasons, 10 all-star appearances, 2 gold metals, and one NBA championships later….

New York Knicks veteran point guard, Jason Kidd announces that “it is time” to retire from the NBA! After a relaxing weekend in Georgia, Kidd sat down with his agent and came to the decision to hang up his kicks an begin a new chapter in his life…

When you think about 19 years, it has been a heckuva ride. Physically, I want to be able to participate in activities with my kids so it has taken a toll. It is time to move on and think about maybe coaching or doing some broadcasting.

Kidd is sure to be an hall of famer, and will leave his footprints in NBA history, finishing 2nd all-time assist and steal leader behind John Stockton.

Things may start to look up for New York Jets Quarterback, Geno Smith. Following the frustrating draft selection, former West Virginia star Geno Smith has officially joined Jay-z sports firm, Roc Nation Sports.

Geno Smith, who surprisingly didn’t get picked up until the second round of the draft, is happy with his decision and when asked by the press:

“I think it’s just his agency. When you talk about being in New York from a standpoint of what they can do in the city, the connections that they have, I think it’s a good move. My mother and my family is comfortable with it, I’m comfortable with it. I’m just going to move on from there, not let it be a big deal, remain humble and keep focusing on football.”

[SNEAKer.Peek] Foamposite One “Pinks”

20120810-101110.jpg

Pink is pretty…. Nike Foamposites have really made a name for themselves recently with all these new releases. Now I wasn’t really a fan of the Gem Green Foams but THESEEEEE!!!! This is one of the dopest color ways that will stand out from the rest.

My only concern is, Foams never released in women or kids sizes. I think it will be selfish to make a PINK shoe and only for men! [Although KD started this disappointment with the release of his Aunt Pearls earlier this year that were only men sizes]

Stay Tuned for official release dates and props to sole wings for the imagery
