Going from 12th man on the bench to superstar point guard in one of the most celebrated sports arena in the world is one thing, but to be the toast of the town in the year’s most star-studded basketball event is on a completely different level. Jeremy says he still has a hard time letting everything sink in, but we wonder how he handled being one of the brightest spotlights of the NBA All-Star Weekend. One of Lin’s proudest supporters is none other than Knicks fanatic Spike Lee, who was spotted during the All-Star Weekend wearing one of the funniest t-shirts we’ve seen; Jeremy Lin as Mars Blackmon on Spike Lee. Mars, as we know, is a fictional persona forged by Spike Lee during the Air Jordan advertisements in the early 90′s, but even Mars will admit that Lin’s success and meteoris rise goes beyond ‘the shoes’. If Linsanity has taken you over, hit up The Forest Lab to cope your own shirt! via FRESHNESS/jose3030

Plenty of sneakerheads cite the feeling of being a kid again for the reason behind their collecting. You know, chasing down that one pair that mom wouldn’t let you buy or that you missed out on on release date. You know what else can make you feel like a kid again? Action figures. And if they revolve around the world of sneakers that’s two birds with one stone right? Recently we saw the RUN DMC x adidas Originals Superstar 80′s accompanied by vinyl figurines of Run and DMC, and of course there was the Nike Mag 2011 ceramic replica that served as a consolation prize to those who couldn’t get the real thing. The latest in toys for sneaker enthusiasts is this Spike Lee ‘Mars Blackmon’ action figure, with Spike represented as his character in the classic ad series that helped galvanize the Air Jordan craze. Check out the detailed shots of the figure, including the mini ‘Fire Red’ Air Jordan III’s, and grab one of these from Uncle York.

Blake Griffin as Mars Blackmon for Jordan Cameron Viral Campaign

blake griffin mars blackmon viral campaign Blake Griffin as Mars Blackmon for Jordan Cameron Viral Campaign

Has the acting bug bitten Blake Griffin? Blake’s somewhat quiet demeanor is constantly belied by his on-court theatrics and earth-shattering dunks, and after witnessing his versatile performances during the 2011 NBA All-Star Weekend, it’s clear that Blake loves to put on a show. His most recent acting gig was actually to help out the draft stock of his friend Jordan Cameron, star Tight End for the USC Trojans and 2011 NFL Draft top prospect; in this viral campaign, Blake shed his Clippers uniform for one Mars Blackmon (or ‘Blake’mon) and revisited the classic Air Jordan commercial that featured Spike Lee and Michael Jordan. While neither Nike nor Jordan Brand had anything at all to do with this mini-project, Sneaker News readers stirred up quite a debate regarding Blake possibly being the next Nike or Jordan Brand signature athlete. However, this was more along the lines of playful theatrics than marketing, but it would be interesting to see Blake have his own signature shoe with the Swoosh or Jumpman. Check out the full video below and let us know what you think.

Especially since his breakout performance at the 2011 NBA All-Star, there’s been a bunch of buzz surrounding Los Angeles Clippers rookie forward Blake Griffin.  Many assume it’s only a matter of time before Blake gets his own signature sneaker and we’ve seen a few Nike Air Max Fly By PEs since then, but is it possible he could end up rocking the Jumpman?  Check out these photos of ‘Blakeman’ doing his best Spike Lee impersonation and reminding us of another young dunk contest champion who went on to rewrite all the rules.  Griffin was joined by the soon-to-be-drafted USC TE Jordan Cameron for a Nike photo shoot in LA and while video is sure to be coming along soon, click through to see Blake Griffin as Mars Blackmon and let us know if he’d be a good fit with Jordan Brand.
