And the first pick in the 2024 NBA draft is…

A highlight reel of the NBA star’s 12 year old son at a recent tournament is spreading throughout the internet. What stood out most to me in the highlight reel was his passing ability, which is impressive, especially for a 12 year-old. His dad is one of the best passers in the NBA, something he doesn’t get much credit for. This kid is doing some pretty impressive stuff for his age and will have high expectations going into high school and college. I will say that I’m surprised he isn’t already 6’8″.

Bold prediction: he chooses to play football instead of basketball… or literally any other sport he wants.

Images of the Adidas Ultra Boost 4.0 have been surfacing recently, such as the one above. I’m not quite sure how I feel about it yet. It seems to be a little less bulky around the ankle and the heel tab does not stick out as much which was one of my favorite parts of the Ultra Boost. Anyways, I’m sure they’ll be just as popular as the last three models. I recently read an article interviewing some of the most influential people in the fashion industry at Agenda Las Vegas on how much staying power Boost technology has in the shoe market. Most said that the comfort of the shoe is a big reason that it does have staying power. I’m sure that it will die down eventually, just like all things in fashion, but boost is yet to show any signs of slowing down.

Kodak Black’s single “Tunnel Vision” cracked the Hot 100 top ten last week at #8. I’ll be honest, I think this is the second, maybe third, song I’ve heard from Kodak. It’s an okay song, it’s not great. I think I can probably stand to listen to it about four more times until I’m sick of it. It’s got a pretty repetitive hook with relatively short verses. He manages to rhyme “winning” and “penitentiary” in the hook, which is pretty impressive. He gave one of the worst interviews of all time on The Breakfast Club 105.3. Wearing a ski mask to the interview is not a very good place to start. If Kodak can stay out of jail, maybe he can keep putting out songs to boost his popularity.

Must I remind you that history repeats itself?
