Irving and Nike recently released a Kyrie 5 inspired by his favorite show Friends. It’s also been reported that Irving is a huge fan of SpongeBob and even quotes some episodes word-for-word in his teams’ training rooms.

As of now, a release date hasn’t been announced for the “SpongeBob” Kyrie 5s, but Irving initially implied that there would be a Patrick Star colorway, so this pair may be part of a multi-shoe pack in the works. Keep an eye out for updates here as soon as more about this collaboration is announced.

UPDATE (07/16): The official Instagram account of Roc Nation Sports has provided the first look at the full SpongeBob SquarePants x Nike Kyrie collection. The preview features the Brooklyn Nets point guard alongside the pack inspired by SpongeBob and the gang. The post also provides the first look at the “Sandy” and “Mr. Krabs” colorways of the Kyrie Low 2. A release date for the pack still has yet to be announced.

UPDATE (07/18): Official images of the “SpongeBob” and “Patrick Star” colorways from the SpongeBob SquarePants x Nike Kyrie pack have surfaced, courtesy of Nike. While a wider launch is currently set for Aug. 10, both pairs released early via SNKRS Cam at the iconic animated series’ booth at Comic-Con 2019 in San Diego earlier today, and have since sold out.

UPDATE (07/22): Following a limited release of the “SpongeBob” and “Patrick” Kyrie 5s last Friday, Nike has officially revealed all five pairs from the SpongeBob SquarePants x Nike Kyrie pack inspired by characters from the iconic animated series. Each pair will release on Aug. 10 via select retailers.

UPDATE (07/25): Ahead of the official launch next month, Kyrie Irving broke down the full five-sneaker collection on the official SpongeBob SquarePants YouTube channel. “This sneaker pack is a lot bigger than obviously just putting out the shoes,” Irving says. “It’s the connection I have to the youth and passing down some timeless gems.”

Look for the full collection to drop Saturday, Aug. 10.

Almost five years ago, Odell Beckham Jr. made “the catch” that catapulted him to stardom and dubbed him the young king of receivers. The Nike Vapor Untouchable Pro 3 OBJ celebrates his larger-than-life game and the path he took to get there.

Scorpions stitched into the cleat’s side are a personal nod to OBJ and his astrological sign, Scorpio. His logo adorns the toe box in gold stitching.

Many of the top shoe brands in the world have been courting Williamson ever since he declared his intention to leave Duke after one season and enter the NBA draft.

The Pels earned the right to select Williamson first overall when they won the draft lottery, but Williamson was essentially a free agent on the shoe market who had the opportunity to weigh his options before making a decision.

By signing with Jordan Brand, Williamson joins an impressive group of NBA players that includes Houston Rockets guard Russell Westbrook, Detroit Pistons forward Blake Griffin, Oklahoma City Thunder guard Chris Paul and Miami Heat guard Jimmy Butler.

Carmelo Anthony doesn’t think Phil Jackson’s presence with the New York Knicks will have an impact on his impending free agency.

“I don’t think it’ll have any effect on me, just as far as what I’m thinking or my decision or anything like that,” Anthony told reporters after the team’s shootaround in Boston on Wednesday morning. “Like I said, I haven’t talked to Phil yet, just to get his insight on a lot of things — what’s his plan, what’s his future plan — because everything’s in his hands now.”

Anthony said the team told him earlier this week that Jackson would be joining its front office.
