Many have questioned Kevin Durant’s tenacity, leadership and winning ways. One thing that can’t be debated: he’s a world champ.

Durant finally won his first NBA title after the Golden State Warriors defeated the Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 5. KD bagged Finals MVP after averaging 35.2 points, 8.4 rebounds and 5.4 assists to lead the Dubs to their second title in three years.

Filipino culture is rich in myth and magic. Even until today, many Filipinos believe in charms, amulets and talismans that offer good fortune, protection and sometimes, superhuman strength.

This Pinoy belief in spirit and divine power inspired Nike to create a limited edition LeBron 14 signature shoe, called Agimat. The LeBron 14 is the latest in LeBron James’ signature basketball shoe line, which features a midsole cushioning system that makes it not just the sleekest but also fastest LeBron shoe to date.

Come out of nowhere: How to become as explosive as Kyrie Irving in 5 weeks

Lifestyle, Sports

Even though I’m a die-hard for the purple and gold, I’ve been a mini fan of Kyrie Irving since he entered the league.

For one, he’s got great handles. For a guard like me it’s fun watching his highlights and how he breaks down and humiliates the players guarding him with his fancy dribbling. Another reason why I love his game is because he’s very creative in scoring and creating his own shot. For someone who’s not that tall, I rely on my speed to one up my opponents. In the same sense, Kyrie also uses his quickness to his advantage to outsmart his defenders.

The Nike Kyrie 3 complements Irving’s playing style the same way beer complements pizza. A while back I wrote how amazing the look and feel of the Kyrie 3 is.

Different athletic activities affect different muscle groups. For example, a distance run optimizes the quads, hamstrings and calves; whereas a high intensity workout demands core activation. In addition to muscle groups, another factor amongst athletes is the desire to achieve the best workout, every time, and they look to products to help them gain the advantage.

“Efficiency is always a key factor for our athletes — they want to get the most out of every workout,” explains Helen Boucher, VP of Women’s Training Apparel Product. “Tights are a huge part of any athlete’s uniform and we analyzed every design and fit detail to ensure key parts of the body are compressed for the right sport.”

With that in mind, Nike’s newest Zonal Strength Tights feature compression zones built directly into the base fabric, targeting key muscle groups to reduce muscle vibration for an efficient workout, without restricting mobility.
