Watch The New Trailer For Upcoming Bond Film ‘Spectre’ With Daniel Craig


The new trailer for the upcoming 24th installment in the James Bond franchise, titled Spectre, debuted during Game 3 of the 2015 NBA Playoffs this week. Once again starring Daniel Craig (Road to Perdition, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) in the title role, the film will bring Craig’s Bond story full circle as he finally comes face-to-face with the secret organization he has been hunting since his first outing in Casino Royale. If you’re not familiar with the series history, let me clue-you-in. In author Ian Fleming‘s original Bond novels, and the original Sean Connery films in the 1960s, Bond was always faced with a scheme carried out by a different member of the SPECTRE organization, whose leader was revealed as Ernst Stavro Blofeld in You Only Live Twice (1967), and who remained Bond’s primary nemesis until Connery’s last series appearance in Diamonds Are Forever (1971). The character and organization essentially disappeared from the series after Roger Moore took over the part for Live and Let Die (1973). The new film, Spectre, will now bring Bond back to his roots, as the new plot finds him tracking the scope of the organization’s reach in Britain’s political system while M struggles to keep the secret service from being dismantled. Returning to reprise their roles from Skyfall are actors Ralph Fiennes (The Constant Gardener, The Grand Budapest Hotel), Naomie Harris (28 Days Later, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest), and Ben Whishaw (I’m Not There, Cloud Atlas), along with new cast members Dave Bautista (Riddick, Guardians of the Galaxy), Monica Bellucci (Malena, The Matrix Reloaded), Lea Seydoux (Inglorious Basterds, Blue Is The Warmest Color), and Oscar-winner Christoph Waltz (Django Unchained, Big Eyes). Skyfall director Sam Mendes (American Beauty, Revolutionary Road) is returning to direct the new film from a screenplay by John Logan (Gladiator, The Aviator), and writing-team Neal Purvis and Robert Wade (The World is Not Enough, Die Another Day). The movie is due out in theaters this November. Enjoy the trailer!

Nike x Kevin Durant “The Baddest”


With another NBA season behind us and the possible demise of the “Big 3” in Miami, Kevin Durant is looking at 2015 as his year to shine. With that being said, Nike has once again put together a brilliant commercial featuring none other than the man himself, KD. The visual sees cameos from Chris Mullen, Charles Oakley, George Gervin “The Iceman” and the man, the myth, Dick Gregory. Durant is definitely “The Baddest” player currently in the NBA, there’s no doubt about his lethal repertoire of moves. Check out the video above and get pumped for next year as the NBA draft continues.

Cavaliers Pregame Court Projection

It looks like Cleveland is trying everything to keep their fan base alive. Quince Imaging, in partnership with the Cleveland Cavaliers, showed off their visual production skills in honor of Zydrunas Ilgauskas’ halftime show. Needless to say, the intro is pretty amazing. I wonder if this could be a regular thing for the Cavaliers, and quite possibly the NBA.

Nikola Pekovic – The Truth Behind the Tattoo

A few weeks back, when watching the Wolves vs Blazers game, the announcers made some remarks to the beast Pekovic’s tattoo that I had never heard before. These remarks had me doing some digging. I have always speculated about what the meaning of this particular tattoo was, and now it is clear.

The Answer: After extensive research (5mn or so), I found some sources on this. The Warrior happens to be Pekovic, and the skulls are of his enemies that he has absolutely slain in battle. The announcers of the game proclaimed, “It looks like Lopez will be the next skull added with all the others, because Lopez is getting dominated”. This has added a whole new level of respect for Pekovic and his tattoos, the guy is an absolute giant on the court, leaving him a force to be reckoned with. Pek ended up with 30pts and 9 rebounds; so watch out Lopez, you might just be the next skull.

A couple of weeks ago we posted pictures and the auction link for Michael Jordan’s coveted “Flu Game” kicks that had hit the open market.

It appears that he made a smart decision because the kicks have sold for an unprecedented $104,765!!! That’s right, 6 fuckin figures; I bet that dude’s taking off work today.
