LeBron Rocks Nike Air Force 1 “More Than An Athlete” Makers Custom Before All-Star Game

Still incensed by the comments Fox News’ Laura Ingraham made about him, Cleveland Cavaliers superstar LeBron James sent a direct shot to her choice words with his choice of footwear before the 2018 NBA All-Star Game on Sunday.

Wanting to let Ingraham and his other critics know that he won’t “shut up and dribble,” James wore a custom pair of Nike Air Force 1 that had “More Than An Athlete” written one one side, deriving from the 90/10 custom creations from Nike’s Makers of the Game space in LA.

Peep photo of James’ custom AF1 below.

BRONX NEWS: Vacant Bronx building partially collapses, setting off mayhem


The rear floors of a long-abandoned Bronx building came crashing down Sunday afternoon, causing mayhem but no injuries, authorities said.


Emergency responders rushed to the three-story building on E. 134th St. near Bruckner Blvd. in Mott Haven around 1 p.m., according to authorities.


Firefighters searched the home but quickly determined the derelict structure was vacant, officials said. There were no injuries.


The back of the building caved in with a thunderous boom.

NYCHA misled tenants whose ceiling collapsed due to flawed boiler


“It sounded like an avalanche coming down back there,” said a neighbor. “I live directly above it. You could feel the floor shake.”


He said the building has been an eyesore for years.


“It’s been vacant at least 15 years, and even that might be generous,” he said. “People have been waiting for that building to fall down for years. It’s not a shock to anybody.”


Department of Buildings’ records show the building has been unoccupied for at least 10 years. The building’s owners have long neglected repairs and failed to correct immediately hazardous violations issued in February and August 2017.


A violation issued in May 2017 notes “failure to maintain building walls and several large holes on the third-story roof exposing the building interior.”


Buildings officials are investigating the cause of the collapse.

Nike Air Zoom Generation “All Star” Updates ’04 Favorite

14 years ago, LeBron James was a rookie and by far the most promising one in a class of stars. While the Chosen One was on schedule his first season to be the toast of the Association as he’s become today, the fans and the coaches neglected to place him into the 2004 All-Star Game.

Only somewhat of a snub given the lack of rookies that make the game on an annual basis, Nike still had to prepare for sky high expectations by creating the Nike Air Zoom Generation “All Star” which played to the LA lineup that included Huaraches and Air Force 1s.

14 years later and back in the same city, LeBron pulled out a 2018 version that sees the same styling as his primitive PE only with modern tagging.

While smart one would say these would’ve dropped in quickstrike fashion this weekend when the iron is hot, maybe these are more than just a PE? We’re guessing not, but check out Bron’s pair below and blow him and Kith up on social in hopes of getting a holiday drop. Congrats, King!

I know my purpose and its for damn sure bigger than just dribbling a basketball. Thank you young fella for allowing me to inspire you! The greatest moment today! ?

BRONX NEWS: CARIBBEAT: Carib duo in ‘Black Panther’


Among the shining stars of this weekend’s opening of the Marvel Studios’ superhero movie “Black Panther” were Letitia Wright from Guyana and Winston Duke of Tobago, who gave notable performances in the Hollywood blockbuster.


The pair are riding the success of the anticipated film, which had record-setting advance ticket sales and is in the middle of an impressive four-day President’s Day weekend debut.


Based on the Marvel comic book series that started in the mid-1960s, “Black Panther” stars Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong’o and Danai Gurira.


Wright, 24, was born in Guyana. While a child, she moved to London with her family. She plays Shuri, the sister of T’Challa, the prince who becomes ruler of the fictional African kingdom of Wakanda and reigning Black Panther — the country’s masked superhero protector.


Wright’s Shuri is passionate, intelligent, technologically intense and — like the other female characters in “Panther” — well equipped for intense physical combat.


Duke, 31, portrays the powerful leader M’Baku, whose Jabari Tribe lives in far-flung mountains away from urban Wakanda.


One of People magazine’s “Hottest Rising Stars” and the focus of a Vanity Fair article titled “Black Panther’s Winston Duke Is the Star You Should Be Watching,” the Tobago-born actor came to the U.S. with his family when he was 9 years old.


He attended Yale School of Drama, became friends with fellow student Nyong’o, and both were members of Yale’s “Folks” club, co-founded by Yale alumnus — and fellow “Panther” actor — Angela Bassett for student actors of color, according to the Vanity Fair article.


In a “Black Panther” post-credit scene, Wright gives audiences a peek into the upcoming the Marvel superhero movie, “Avengers: Infinity War.” Along with Boseman and Gurira, Wright and Duke appear in the Avengers sequel, which opens in May.


BELAFONTE BIRTHDAY CONCERT


An unforgettable birthday celebration for singer/activist Harry Belafonte is taking place March 1 in Manhattan, highlighting songs performed by the music legend and featuring some longtime collaborators.


“Turn the World Around: The Music and Legacy of Harry Belafonte” concert, presented by the City College Center for the Arts, is a musical tribute to Belafonte, taking place on his 91st birthday. The affair will be held at the City College Center for the Arts’ Aaron Davis Hall, W. 135th St. (at Convent Ave.), starting at 7:30 p.m.


Members of the Belafonte Alumni Group — performers who have worked with the entertainer over the years — will be featured in the concert. They include Ty Stephens, Branice McKenzie, Sam McKelton, La Tanya Hall, Sharon Brooks, Gabrielle Lee, Deborah Sharpe-Taylor and Roumel Reaux, led by Belafonte’s longtime musical director, Richard Cummings Jr.


“This production is part of the development of an ongoing tour of this material designed to expose audiences everywhere to Harry’s music and to his amazing life,” said Stephens, who helped organize the show.


Born in Harlem to Caribbean immigrant parents, Belafonte is known for his renditions of “Banana Boat Song (Day-O)” and “Jamaica Farewell,” and his acting roles in “Carmen Jones” and other films.


Belafonte added civil rights and political activism to his resume as early as the 1960s. He worked with the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., supported the South African anti-apartheid movement, and helped organize the 1985 “We Are the World” famine relief effort.


“Twenty-eight years ago, Harry Belafonte gathered a committee of artists, community leaders, and politicians responsible for creating one of the most memorable events in the history of Aaron Davis Hall,” said CCCA Managing Director Gregory Shanck. “The event was a special ABC Nightline Town Hall Meeting with Ted Koppel and Mr. Nelson Mandela. We have never forgotten all that Mr. Belafonte has done for Aaron Davis Hall and this community and it is only fitting we participate in this special celebration in his honor,” he said.


Tickets are for general admission and students and seniors with valid ID. Visit www.citycollegecenterforthearts.org for tickets and information.

BRONX NEWS: Soldier who saved 4 in Bronx fire celebrated as hero at funeral


The soldier who perished while pulling people out of a roaring blaze was remembered Saturday as a man who lived as he died — a hero.


Dozens of mourners packed into Our Lady of Mount Carmel Catholic Church in Belmont to pay tribute to Pfc. Emmanuel Mensah.


The 28-year-old from Ghana was among the 13 victims of a fast-moving inferno that engulfed a five-story building Dec. 28.


The young soldier was home for the holidays when the blaze broke out on the first floor.


Rather than run and save himself, Mensah raced in and out of the burning building at least three times — carrying his neighbors to safety.


Mensah’s heroism cost him his life — he was found dead on the fourth floor, overcome by smoke as he tried to evacuate the building.


He’s credited with saving the lives of four people in what was the city’s deadliest fire in more than a quarter-century.


In his eulogy, Timothy Cardinal Dolan said that Mensah demonstrated the best in humanity by sacrificing his life for others, according to the New York Times.


“In the selfless valor, the instinctive willingness to sacrifice and give his all, Emmanuel Mensah was God with us, reminding us of the most noble calling of the human person, to give ourselves in sacrifice and love to others,” Dolan said, the Times reported.


Tears rolled down the faces of Mensah’s anguished relatives as soldiers carried his flag-draped coffin out of the church.


Several city firefighters — apparently moved by Mensah’s bravery — joined family and friends in honoring the fallen soldier.


The funeral came a day after Mensah’s relatives accepted two military awards in his honor.


His family said the New York State Medal of Valor and the Soldier’s Medal, which is the Army’s highest award for noncombat bravery, will be buried with him.

BRONX NEWS: Cousin, pal of man killed in Bronx shooting surrender to cops


A 45-year-old man found shot to death inside an SUV in the Bronx earlier this month was killed by two men, a friend and a cousin of the victim, authorities said Saturday.

Under Armour HOVR House Lifts Off in LA

lead image via UA, additional photography by Oscar Castillo

Going up on a Wednesday, Under Armour defied gravity and basketball bias launching their HOVR House party pop-up at NBA All-Star Weekend in LA.

The performance runner with lifestyle legs offers a floating feel with an anti-gravity design first met by the wearer upon making contact with the anatomical insole. Industry mainstays like a knit upper, smartly branded heel cage and heel-to-toe cushioning see the specs needed to cut time on the track while UA’s HOVR Foam offers lower impact and higher energy return for going the distance. Really about that action? The shoe comes in connected form for those looking to track their times with the MapMyRun App.

While marbled mid tops and icy white low top takes on the HOVR laced attendees at the party pop-up from Jordan Speith to Amine, the floating fortress in Hollywood provided a preview to host of upcoming colorways — most notably school spirited offerings prime for March Madness.

Of most note to UA faithful, a smooth UCLA pair sees blue to white gradient fade similar to that of coveted Currys while brand institutions like Notre Dame, Wisconsin and others will see retail release this spring.

Get an inside look at the LA HOVR House below and look for Under Armour’s anti-gravity gathering to touch down at SXSW in Austin, TX in March followed by a Washington, DC pop-up in April. To RSVP for those HOVR House locations click here. To purchase a pair of HOVRs, click here.

BRONX NEWS: 7 busted in Valentine’s Day raid on Bronx brothel


It was a case of love for sale.


Cops took down a bottle club doubling as a brothel run by a guy who calls himself “Freaky Freddie” in the Bronx on Valentine’s Day, records show.


The club advertised itself as “FDR Studios,” and claimed, “Party space available for rent.”


“We cater to all events,” the flyer obtained by the Daily News crowed. “1,700 square foot space, private serving area, 3 private rooms inside space.”


The paper included a picture of a child blowing out birthday candles.


Vice cops sent an undercover officer into the joint in a second floor apartment on Third Ave. near E. 147th St. in the South Bronx on the romantic holiday.


Inside, the officer paid a bouncer at the door to get in. After he was frisked, he found sinful doings.


A bartender was selling beer and hard liquor to about 60 people. And women in various states of undress hung around, flashing their breasts at potential customers, the records show.


The place offered hookah pipes to customers, who were ordered by the club’s managers not to take cell phone pictures or video of the scene.


The undercover watched as men allegedly paid Frederick Marshall, 42, and Daquan McPherson, 27, cash to accompany women to a number of small rooms in the back of the apartment.


The money went into a cash box at the bar.


An informant used by the cops told them that he had sex with a woman in one of those rooms for , records show. The same informant later arranged to have sex with another woman for .


Cops traced two phone numbers on an awning outside the building and found one of them belonged to a David “Nazdee” Williamson, 36, of the Bronx, who was also busted.


The Vice cops arrested seven men on charges of promoting prostitution and running an unlicensed club and running a bar without a liquor license.


Cary London, a lawyer for Marshall, said his client was just attending a party.


“If we’re going to start being held accountable for the actions of others at a party we go to, then we’re going to have to start building a lot more jails in this city. Maybe that’s what de Blasio wants!”


He added, “Next year, I think my client is just going to send himself flowers.”


The seven were arraigned in Bronx Criminal Court Friday. All but two were released on their own recognizance.


“Freaky Freddie” was not arrested.
