lol seriously, I thought it was someone who must've fat-fingered the UV. But I guess not...

Some people are staunch Nike die hards I guess. Or maybe, people can't help themselves but to hate Kanye West lol. I tried pretty hard to get a pair of the Yeezy v2 creams. But I'm not paying after-market prices.

Good stuff. I've been on a strong basketball shoe kick the past couple of years (mostly lows), and started to waver on Nike running shoes. I was considering jumping to Adidas for running shoes (NMDs or Ultraboosts) which I hear are crazy comfortable and have overtaken Nike as far as running shoes, and stay with Nike for Basketball. Unfortunately, I have the 2016 Nike Buckeye Train Speeds. I also have the Buckeye Lebron Soldier 9s - and the Lebrons are more comfortable by a long shot. I hadn't wore a high top in a long time, either. I couldn't believe how uncomfortable the Trains were. Never had a negative experience like that. Last season I wore the Buckeye Lebrons instead of the Train Speeds every time I went down to the shoe.

What's your feedback on the vapor max? I've been curious for a while, but don't know anybody who has them and watching performance reviews on youtube only go so far. They can't be that much more comfortable than the air max, no? But there are some reports out there that the vapor max is the most comfortable shoe Nike has ever made.

The Nike Free series is like 8 millions times more comfortable than the Nike Train series. If you somehow passed on the 2016s (which were all fire emojis) you should definitely consider these 2017s. They're sick, and again, will be 8 million times more comfortable than last years. 8 million times, I did the math.

Sooooooo despite the legal process playing out, the NFL safely concluded that there was definitely domestic violence here - based on the 6 games - which is exactly the NFL policy for domestic violence. Or is the 6 games coincidence? Did the speeding, the 2 bar incidents have anything to do with this? Aside from what actually happened, which none of us will ever know - 6 games seems like a lot, unless you're definitively saying this was a case of domestic violence.

There's gonna be a referendum on so many offensive components this season. Right Tackle being one of them. As crazy as it sounds, I'm really starting to worry less about these obvious issues from last yea and the year before. These are the obvious areas that are being addressed and will definitely get much better. There are both players and coaches who know what's at stake if they come out this season and repeat the same mistakes they did last year. 

It's the areas of concern that we, or more importantly, the team have no idea are areas of major concern yet that sometimes can pop up and bit you. Isaiah Prince had never been a starter until last season. I don't think the team saw Prince and his struggles coming, and what those continued struggles would become for the team overall. Same thing with play calling in both '15 and '16. You'd like to think the coaching staff will be more dynamic in its approach to diagnose and fix issues that are a bit of a surprise. Maybe they need to give guys shorter leashes, or get more guys ready than the two-deep - just in case.

When did this air? Did the semi-finals game air back to back (2nd game on now)? Is this thread timestamped from an earlier preview? Lighty will be thinking long and hard about missing that layup at the end of regulation - even though it was contested. Salty I missed this game.
