Raptors unveil new unis for 2015-16

By Jeff Case

A day before the 2015 Draft, our main man, Lang Whitaker, wrote a post detailing the new uniforms the Atlanta Hawks, Philadelphia 76ers, Milwaukee Bucks, Los Angeles Clippers and (kinda/sorta) Charlotte Hornets will sport in 2015-16.

And just when we we thought we were all done with uniform posts, the Toronto Raptors go and pull us back in again.

The team initially debuted news and photos of the new uniforms in a post on their web site and per the news release, team ambassador Drake unveiled the unis at Β OVOFest in Toronto:

Raptors Global Ambassador Drake unveiled a Cory Joseph alternate black jersey with gold and white trim during his OVOFest concert tonight at Toronto’s Molson Canadian Amphitheatre. Joseph, a native of the Toronto area who joined the club as a free agent in July, will wear number six to honour his Toronto roots

Anyway, here’s a look at all the uni options in their full glory …

NBA teams celebrate Friendship Day

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — Yesterday, apparently, was National Friendship Day, a day for celebrating friendship around the world. I say apparently because none of my friends let me know, SMH. Anyway, in honor of #FriendshipDay, several NBA teams sent out tweets to commemorate the day…

Paul Pierce throws first pitch at Los Angeles Dodgers game

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — After a long NBA career, playing for teams along the Eastern seaboard, Paul Pierce recently returned home, signing with the Los Angeles Clippers. And to celebrate his return, Pierce threw out the first pitch last night for his hometown Los Angeles Dodgers. Great form, but could probably aim a little higher…

Lance Stephenson and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — It’s officially summer for the NBA. Here’s Lance Stephenson from the Los Angeles Clippers in a dance battle against two of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Rafael and Michaelangelo.

And good news! Apparently the battle ended with Lance and the Turtles on the same page, agreeing to team up and go fight crime together…

The Internet reacts to the DeAndre Jordan saga

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — In case you missed it, last night was one of the weirder evenings in NBA history. To summarize: DeAndre Jordan had announced he was leaving the Clippers to sign with the Mavericks; as the deadline to actually sign a contract neared, Jordan apparently had second thoughts; Doc Rivers and several members of the Clippers descended upon Jordan’s home in Houston for a meeting; Mark Cuban was supposedly trying to get a meeting but couldn’t get in the house because the Clippers were still inside. At the end of the day, DeAndre Jordan signed a new contract with the Clippers.

All this craziness played out in real time on Twitter, a soap opera crossed with a reality show crossed with sports. And people on Twitter had a lot of fun with it…

Emojis at heart of the chase for DeAndre Jordan


VIDEO: NBA Emoji Battle?

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — Last week, DeAndre Jordan announced he’d be leaving the Clippers for the Mavericks. Today, all heck broke loose, as it was reported that Jordan was being still being pursued by the Clippers.

The Clippers and the Mavericks are all apparently trying to get in another meeting with Jordan, which means they all need to travel to his hometown of Houston. How do you get to Houston?

If you’re Chandler Parsons and you’re in Dallas, maybe you hop in a plane…

But if you’re JJ Redick and you’re in Austin, Texas, you could take a car…

Or if you’re Blake Griffin and you’re vacationing in Hawaii, it may be a more involved process…

Newest Clipper Paul Pierce went with a clip art picture of a rocket, instead of an emoji…

But Clips assistant Mike Woodson is apparently swimming to the meeting…

And then there’s Chris Paul, who 24 hours ago was photographed riding a banana boat, but is also apparently on the way…

Either way, emojis are winning the day in NBA social media. Just ask Draymond Green

And the Warriors, well, they can sit back and watch since they’ve got a trophy to hang onto…

Oh, and Kobe weighed in as well…

Don’t forget aboutΒ Jordan:

And even in the middle of Wimbeldon action, Roger Federer got in on the fun:

 

LeBron, CP3, D-Wade and Melo on vacation together

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — Last week I went on vacation to Florida, and I spent the week enjoying my time off, playing in the surf and sand by day, and then relaxing at night. My companions? My wife, my two-year-old son, and my parents.

So in other words, basically nothing at all like the vacation Dwyane Wade is apparently on right now. Here’s a picture Wade posted to Instagram last night of him enjoying the evening alongside a few NBA superstars: LeBron James, Chris Paul and Carmelo Anthony

#BrotherHood

And how do they spend their days? Riding around on a giant banana boat (along with D-Wade’s wife, Gabrielle Union), of course…

Blake Griffin takes batting practice at Dodger Stadium

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — The Los Angeles Clippers have had an interesting summer, as they lost DeAndre Jordan to the Dallas Mavericks, and now are now trying to find someone to replace Jordan. So while the Clippers are in transition, big man Blake Griffin spent a day taking some swings at the ballpark. Dodgers infielder Justin Turner became friends with Blake at a charity event and invited him over to take batting practice, and here we can see that BG actually has a pretty nice swing …

this may or may not have been a home run….. on a little league field.

Blake Griffin, Steve Ballmer show off rejected Clippers logos

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — Last night on “Conan,” Clippers owner Steve Ballmer showed off the team’s new logo. But what he didn’t show was all the blood, sweat and tears that went into creating that new logo. And apparently, this is the blood, sweat and tears of graphic design enthusiast Blake Griffin, who took on this project and came up with something new…
