Derrick Rose somehow thinks the Knicks are a known superteam (Ball Don’t Lie)

Derrick Rose speaks during a news conference at Madison Square Garden in June. Kevin Durant’s decision to join the Golden State Warriors served as the latest shot in the ongoing battle to form the NBA’s strongest superteam.

Report: Warriors looking to earn more from jersey ad than any NBA team (Ball Don’t Lie)

Which brand will have a place on Kevin Durant’s jersey in 2017? The NBA’s use of on-jersey advertisements has gone from long-running flirtation to full-on relationship set to start during the 2017-18 season. The Philadelphia 76ers became the first franchise to reach a deal with sponsor when they announced a three-year, roughly $15-million agreement with online ticket marketplace StubHub in May, and it’s likely only a matter of time before more teams announce their own deals.

LeBron, Melo, CP3, and Wade open ESPYs with call for political action (Ball Don’t Lie)

Carmelo Anthony, Chris Paul, Dwyane Wade, and LeBron James made a strong statement at the ESPYs (via @cjzero on Twitter). The most recent wave of race-related shootings in the United States — chiefly the police killing of Alton Sterling in Louisiana, the police killing of Philando Castile in Minnesota, and the shooting deaths of five police officers at a Black Lives Matter rally in Dallas last week — have inspired several recent cases of increased political consciousness for black athletes. Members of the WNBA’s Minnesota Lynx have made the most controversial statement so far in donning Black Lives Matter t-shirts that caused four off-duty police officers to walk off the job at Target Center during one of the team’s games, but many other athletes have at least weighed public statements on continued violence and the diminishment of black lives in American culture.
