Browsing the "Jeremy Lin" Tag

JEREMY LIN Jeremy Lin is an NBA athlete who quickly went from being a bench player to an international sensation for the New York Knicks in the early part of 2012. Once ‘Linsanity’ begun Lin’s jersey immediately became one of the fastest selling of all NBA players, with Nike quickly reacting with a string of Lin inspired sneakers.

Madison Square Garden and the NBA store reports Jeremy Lin jerseys to be the top selling jerseys and fan apparel of the month. With Linsanity taking over the world, there’s no question that Lin’s status as a Taiwanese-American draws appeal from American fans as well as those in the Far East. Just yesterday, Sneaker News reported the news of Nike’s extension of Jeremy Lin’s contract with the Swoosh, and they certainly wasted no time in spreading the Linsanity as we have a look at two new t-shirts featuring the catchy bold-faced syntax on the chest. Both colorways of the t-shirt feature that camo-like print seen on Nike Basketball PE releases, so could this signify a PE for Jeremy Lin? Let us know what you think of Jeremy Lin’s future prospect as a Nike Basketball athlete (is he worthy of a sig?) and cop either new colorway right now at Nikestore, and let’s see how Linsanity erupts tonight when the New York Knicks visit the Miami Heat tonight at 7 PM EST.

Nike Extends Jeremy Lin’s Contract

February 22nd, 2012 by | 11 comments

nike extends jeremy lins contract Nike Extends Jeremy Lins Contract

It’s well known that Nike spends a huge amount of time and money scouting out future NBA stars, locking them down with lucrative contracts that are mutually beneficial for the involved parties. This time around it seems as if a star has simply fallen in their lap, as Jeremy Lin (aka Linsanity, Super Lintendo, Lincredible, etc.) has recently gone from sitting on the bench to galvanizing the New York Knicks and lighting up Kobe in the Garden. No doubt a result of the seismic effects of Linsanity, news hit today of Nike extending Lin’s contract, a move that is rumored to grant the newly minted Knicks star his own PE, possibly in the form of the Nike Zoom Hyperfuse 2011. It’s hard to image Nike not striking while the iron is this hot, and you can be sure that Sneaker News will have the info if the Linsanity movement is indeed crystallized in sneaker form. Until then, let us know in the comments if you think this is a good move for Nike and whether or not Jeremy Lin can keep leading his team with such amazing performances. Also, hit the jump for Nike Basketball‘s official statement on his recent rise.

Celebrity Feet: Spike Lee Wears Foamposites & Jeremy Lin Jerseys

celebrity feet spike lee lin jerseys foamposite 1 Celebrity Feet: Spike Lee Wears Foamposites & Jeremy Lin Jerseys

New York Knicks super-fan Spike Lee is recognized for being decked out in the best NY Knicks gear there is, but on Friday and Sunday, the Knicks’ last two games, Spike Lee went back in time to bring out some vintage Jeremy Lin in the form of his Palo Alta H.S. and Harvard jerseys. On Friday, Spike wore the Green/Black/White jersey at the request of Jeremy’s High School coach (according to NBA), and matched it with a neon green undershirt and the Electric Green Foamposite Pros. He followed that up with the Crimson red Harvard jersey, pairing that one with the Metallic Red Foamposite One, but don’t accuse Spike of jumping on the Harvard bandwagon; he taught a class in the early 90′s at the Ivy League school. Which Foam x Jeremy combo is more “Linsane”? Check out the Spike after the jump and let us know.

nba feet 2 20 12 NBA Feet: Weekend Recap   2/17   2/19

Quite the eventful weekend, no? With the release of the Air Jordan IV ‘White/Cement’ on Saturday morning and the unfortunate online fiasco that happened in the early morning hours, this past weekend was certainly one of the most eventful ones of the month. Did anyone rock the Cement IV in the NBA? That distinction goes to San Antonio’s DeJuan Blair, who rocked the White/Cement IV with the Spurs throwback jersey. Quentin Richardson might’ve topped that by wearing his Black/Royal PE of the Air Jordan XIII, and Demar DeRozan continued wearing Kobe’s by rocking a sick Red/Black Zoom Kobe VII iD. The Jeremy Lin Show continued with a loss against the Hornets on Friday, but Linsanity returned on Sunday when the Knicks defeated the defending champion Dallas Mavericks in an exciting come-from-behind victory. J.R. Smith made his return to the NBA, chipping in with solid scoring for the Knicks while wearing the Nike Zoom Hyperfuse Low. The Air Jordan XI was again a popular choice, with the Space Jams and Concords making their weekly appearances, and LeBron James continued rocking PEs of his Nike LeBron 9 in back-to-back appearances against the Cavs and Magic. The weekend was capped off by Durant’s 51 points, Westbrook’s 40, and Serge Ibaka’s triple-double as the Thunder knocked off the Nuggets in OT. Check out all of this weekend’s best NBA Feet sightings and stick with Sneaker News for more NBA Feet features as we near the 2012 NBA All-Star Weekend! via ESPN

Why the Cleveland Cavs? Lightly put, Michael, OWNED them. Ask Craig Ehlo, who still might be sitting on the Gund Arena floor doing ‘The Brady’. With the Air Jordan IV celebrating its Jordan-specific milestone year, Jordan Brand has looked back at some of Michael’s greatest hits (for the Cavs, those hits felt like haymakers), and looking back at that memorable video clip, it seems like the pause button was pressed when Michael floated in mid-air for what felt like…an inhuman amount of time. We’ve got some more detailed angles of the Air Jordan IV ‘Cavs’ for you below, but if you’d rather see them on your feet, grab one of the available pairs now from jqtechdestination on eBay.

Jeremy Lin is ballin’ outta control in the Nike Zoom Hyperfuse Low, but are they his favorite shoes of all-time? It must be a dream come true for a sneakerhead to become an official athlete/representative for the brand, and given his recent success and potential as a marketing blockbuster, the Nike x Lin combination is likely be a common theme for the near future.

There was more wheelin’ and dealin’ in the NBA over the course of two nights as we got a look at some great match-ups (Bulls vs. Celtics) while enjoying more of the Linsanity that has taken over Madison Square Garden. Knicks phenom Jeremy Lin showed a pass-first dimension of his game, tallying 13 assists while bringing Lob City to the East Coast while wearing the Nike Zoom Hyperfuse Low. The Air Jordan X ‘Old Royal’ continues to be a popular in-game choice as we see Jared Jeffries, Nate Robinson, and Monta Ellis ball in the recent release. The Nike Zoom Kobe VI iD still has presence as Ben Gordon and Demar DeRozan wore their respective pairs, and Ray Allen rocked Home and Away PEs of the Air Jordan 2011 A-Flight during back-to-back games. We’ve got more NBA action for you after the jump so take a look and stay tuned for a nice Weekend Recap this Monday! via Yahoo
