NBA UA CEO not happy Curry shoes not selling

18 people viewing this

sports | By Bkjj11 - 10 hours ago



Golden State Warriors point guard Stephen Curry isn’t perfect after all so it seems. On Thursday morning, Under Armour CEO Kevin Plank revealed that current sales for Curry’s signature sneaker are not up to par.

As reported by ESPN’s Darren Rovell, Plank’s recent admission was the first sign that Under Armour was not pleased with the reception of the two-time MVP’s latest basketball shoe.

“Our success in basketball hasn’t been without its learning,” said Plank on the Under Armour earnings conference call. ”As we launched the Curry 3 late last year, our expectations continued to run high. And while the Three played very well on court for Stephen Curry and our athletes, a sluggish signature market and a warm consumer reception led to softer than expected results.

“This has created an inventory imbalance that we are working through. One that, yes, is baked into our full-year outlook which hasn’t changed and, most importantly, yielded lessons we’re applying ahead with the Curry 4 and beyond.”

It is also worth noting that the price of the Curry 1, 2, 2.5 and now 3 shoes have continued to fluctuate over time. After the initial sneaker was slated at $120, the price increased to $130, $135 and $140, respectively. However, the aforementioned Rovell then made a point to mention that “the suggested retail price of [the veteran point guard’s] playoff shoe, the 3Zer0, went back to $120.”

On the other hand, back in November, the company lost approximately $600 million in value due to the fact that Foot Locker CEO Dick Johnson stated that the Curry 3s “started off a bit slower than the previous models.”

Lil Wayne and Skip Bayless had a live stream conversation where Wayne touched on a variety of subjects such as his probation and label situation. Most notably the rapper has revealed he is not signed to Roc Nation and has been asking Jay-Z help with his current financial situation

14:30

Caught this musty ass, broke, has been, lying about the Roc deal



I was wondering where this broke ass nigga was getting money from

It's not like he's making any money from these rink dink venues he's been performing at. All those breadcrumbs go to baby



He admitted to lying about the Roc Nation deal

Even Jim Jones singed to Roc Nation



This nigga supposed to have his own sh*t

How you the CEO of a label asking Jay for money?



This nigga night a real thot

Dyed his hair blonde, trying to find a sugar daddy because he has daddy issues



This is almost surreal

Y'all crusty Wayne stans are never getting new Wayne music



Hope you wayne stans like seizures because that's the only thing Wayne's dropping in 2017

Projected to sell more that No Celings 2, FWA and C5 Combined



Damn. Wayne really is poor. Thugger got that niggas whole advance in his hands in one photo



This Thread Has Been Brought To You By 300 Entertainment and YSL Records



Meanwhile, At Young Money Headquarters in the kitchen of a Krispy Kreme in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho, Wayne prepares himself a hit of meth that could improve snoring in Boston Terriers by 66%

He has set up shop there so he can make burned CDs of his Carter 5 album to send to labels.

"I'm done waiting for Birdman to send me my money, I'm going to sign with Jay Z"

He smiles to himself as he looks at a picture of Jay on the wall of his "office" that he put up using a dollar store frame

Suddenly, an employee enters the room.

The man is shocked to find a huge sign that says "Rock Nayshun" written in chocolate sauce

"Umm sir, I don't think you're allowed in here"

The man says, trembling with fear

Wayne pulls out his weapon and says

"What the fu*k are you doing in my office nigga?"

The man runs away but Wayne quickly puts 3 bullets in the back of his head

He grabs the man's body before it hits the ground and uses the Krispy Kreme uniform as a disguise

He enters the front of the restaurant and starts handing people C5 on burned CDs

Wayne is shocked to find that people are throwing the CDs in nearby trashcans

He locks everyone inside the Krispy Kreme and waves his gun around as he barricades the door

"Look I don't know if you think I'm some kind of buster, but I'm rich"

He says, his eyes bloodshot with anger

The 6 people in Krispy Kreme look visibly annoyed and confused

A security guard begins walking toward Wayne

Wayne tries to shoot the man but he has ran out of bullets

Wayne becomes frightened and yells

"Goon Squad"

Nothing happens

Wayne yells again

"GOON SQUAD"

Nothing happens but ths security guard is within punching distance of Wayne

"I said Goon Squ--"

Right then Wayne is dragged by his urine colored dreads and thrown in a nearby trash can.

Wayne is so angry he cannot even think straight.

He punctures a hole in a gas line behind the building and lights a match.

The building begins to burn, killing everybody in the donut parlor slowly. Screams of agony are heard emitting from the building

Wayne watches as he laughs hysterically

The smell of burning intestines, charred skin and children's tears fill the air

The goon squad shows up, 45 minutes later, In a Young Money branded Rickshaw

Gudda Gudda, the leader, takes of his hat and takes a knee before Wayne

"You have summoned us, your eminence?"

He says

Wayne takes a hit of meth and blows it in Guddas face

"Too late, let's get out of here, where's the bus driver?"

Gudda and the goon squad look confused

"He went into Krispy Kreme with his wife and newborn baby to buy Donuts before the show"

Wayne becomes more angry

"Well, where's the show?"

Lil Twist comes forward

"Umm, sir, it's at Krispy Kreme"

Suddenly Wayne's Motorola Star Tac begins to ring

It's his manager

He throws his phone into a nearby trashcan and leaves with the goon squad as Gudda Gudda gives him a piggy back ride into the sunset

They missed a show at El Pollo Loco, 3 pounds of uncooked chicken breast, a gift card for $20 and roughly $11.78, A severe blow to Young Money finances

NUPAC Allegedly Sold 830 Copies? (Since BX has Mocked Sales, It is Time for your Medicine)

70 people viewing this

hiphop | By WavyGnu - 6 hours ago

FWD to 47:57 minutes of the show, please:



I seem to recall many of you on here yucking it up because an artist didn't sell X amount of albums. ESPECIALLY if they were independent. MANY of YOU were making fun of them because they didn't have the resources that your favorites had. BTW, that's a bi*ch move & it really isn't hip hop. That's Lipstick Alley,MTO, not Hip Hop. Just so you know for the next time. And here's another protip for you: Most legendary artists don't sell well either, shocking, I know.

830 is not good for a starting point for a week of someone was on Breakfast Club & LA Leakers. The people that invested in you are likely not having a good week.

But a recap of what we've learned this week:

1) No one gives a sh*t about your street cred except your crew hyping you up & 5 people on BX who seem to be aliases on other hip hop forums posting the same sh*t. Did you think we wouldn't see that?

2) We've learned that doing a roll out for a album contrasting yourself with 2pac on a album cover, it doesn't turn on a lot of the hip hop audience. I'd say it does the exact opposite, go figure


3) We've learned that taunting Joe Budden when he has a highly visible platform in Hip Hop Social media (much more visible than Troy) Not a good idea when he has access to your weekly sale numbers.

4) Finally, We've learned you have to understand your limitations, You aren't Nupac you are more like uhhh NUGLOCC as in the east coast version of 40 Glocc. You are a clown, no one cares that you "run" a block. You thought your antics were going to lift your sales. You aren't ODB, no one is going to care. End of story.

Next time try focusing on your talents & pooling that energy together & I bet you will have a vast improvement of sales. Imagine the reality of an artist actually having a sincere roll out for a project & not resorting to juvenile bait or desperate attempts to be thrust into the spotlight.

All hail, NUGLOCC

Image inside Apr 27 - Samantha Bee says visiting Rikers Island felt like "a Caribbean vacation"

20 people viewing this

news | By RAZAH CUTS - 10 hours ago

Quote:



Samantha Bee's latest comments about Rikers Island are a cringe-inducing example of tone-deaf privilege.

In a conversation with fellow comedian Lena Dunham published Wednesday in the Hollywood Reporter, late-night host Bee, whose show Full Frontal airs weekly on TBS, described filming a segment at Rikers Island, New York City's massive jail complex.

While visiting, she said, Bee had to put her phone "in a lockbox for eight hours," which she said made visiting Rikers as relaxing as "a Caribbean vacation."

"I emerged from Rikers, and everyone was like, 'Your skin is shining.' And it was because I've never been more relaxed. I felt so free just knowing that my phone was safe, but I wasn't allowed to see it or know what was happening in the world."
Dunham responded by asking Bee, "So Rikers became the most relaxing place you've been in months?" To which Bee said, "It was the most free I've felt in months."

Those comments likely strike many as insensitive, considering Rikers' history of human rights abuses, increasing violence and high-profile public scandals — including the case of Khalief Browder, sent to Rikers at the age of 16 in 2010, accused of stealing a backpack.

Browder, who has become somewhat of a symbol of the human cost of the jail's dysfuntion, was held at Rikers for three years without a trial. Almost two of those years were spent solitary confinement, and in 2015 he died by suicide in his family's home in the Bronx.


There have been plenty of other horrific stories out of Rikers in recent years — in September, New York City agreed to pay out a $5.75 million settlement resulting from the 2013 death of Bradley Ballard, who died after being locked in a Rikers Island cell for six days.

Ballard, who was mentally ill, was naked and covered in urine and feces when he was found, the New York Times reported at the time. The city is currently considering a plan to close the massive complex within the next ten years.

Bee's "joke" about relaxing in Rikers is a misstep for the comedian, a Daily Show alum whose current show has garnered heaps of praise for its sharp and pointed skewering of politics generally, and President Donald Trump specifically.

Bee has owned up to mistakes in the past — recently she apologized for a segment that mocked the haircut of a man who, it turned out, was undergoing treatment for cancer. Considering the Twitter backlash already surrounding her comments, it seems that she's due for another public apology.

Image inside Apr 26 - Nigerian Scientist Invents Device That Can Supply The Entire Africa Uninterrupted

21 people viewing this

news | By talisman11 - 9 hours ago

Nigerian engineer, Obayagbona Emmanuel Imafidon, has stated that he has invented a power-generating device that can solve the power shortage in the country.



In an interview with Guardian, the graduate of Electrical Engineering from the Institute of Management and Technology in Enugu said he could generate power from thunder lightning and that he has been working on it since 2006. He said:

“I have been researching on generating constant power from thunder lightning. That is using a strike of thunder lightning to generate power that can serve Nigeria and Africa for five years and 30 days. That means that whenever thunder strike for once, we are sure of uninterrupted power for five years and thirty days.


“One may think it is not possible and if it is possible why the western world has not converted lightning to electricity, but what I have developed so far is a prototype. There are five chambers including the trapping zone which is made of lightning arrestor. There is the storage zone and the conversion zone, which convert static energy into current electricity and transmit the energy into transmission zone.

The transmission zones will first of all step down the power from as high as five mega volts and there are five storage zones that have the capacity of storing over 25 mega volts of power. “When it stores the 25 MV of power, the conversion zone takes one mega vote at a time, send signals to other sensory zones which shut down other sensory zones from discharging at the same time.

Now the transmission zone of the power generating plant will step down the megavolt to whatever Nigerians need. “For instance, Nigeria is generating 330,000 megavolts, but my device generate 5 million volts and then give Nigerians their 330 KV and still have about 4670, 000 megavolts left as reserve.

Nigerian engineer invents power-generating device to end blackout “Taking a look at the prototype, the first time I worked on it was March 10, 2006. I built this prototype with five zones- the power trapping zone, the annexing zone and in between the annexing zone, there is the sensory zone, conversion zone and transmission zone. In Nigeria, we are generating 330,000 volts.

Now when thunder strikes, the trapping zone (which is made of trapping arrestor) will trap a maximum of 5 mega volts from 330mgv that comes from lightning. “Lightning comes with 330 mega volts and the trapping arrestor here is capable of trapping five million megavolts, thereby allowing 330 megavolts to be wasted in the atmosphere for other lightning arrestors to trap and neutralise the energy to the ground through a process called earthling.

If you look at most masts around, you will see something like a Y-metallic shape placed on top of a building, this is called lightning arrestor. “The lightning arrestor is used to trap the power discharged from lightning and this comes with a lightning power of about 20 billion watts, while in Nigeria we are generating 2,600 megawatts of power. The voltage lightning comes along with 330 megavolts, while we are generating 330,000 megavolts.

So you can see that there is a far cry between lightning energy and hydro electricity which the country relies on. “The trapping zone will be built by the Russians, Germany or USA in order to capture a maximum of 5 mega volts and allow 330,000 megavolts to be wasted in the atmosphere for the trapping arrestor.

Now, the five megavolts trapped by lightning will send the signal or energy to the annexing zone. You can see that we have so many trapping zones here and that is because you don’t know the direction lightning may come from. So, we cannot use one lightning director to achieve the purpose and that is why we have several lightning arrestors here.

“We have various strategic places where these lightning arrestors will be mounted because we have some places that are prone to lightning and these include some parts of Enugu State like IMT area and Zik Avenue. When this lightning arrestor traps the lightning, it transmits energy down the annexing zone. Enugu State is going to be one of our trapping zones of lightning energy.

We are going to have one in Edo, Cross River, Rivers and Delta states. “These riverine areas are prone to lightning. After that, the transmission zone captures each storage zone which accommodates five megavolts each. The five storage zones will give 25 megavolts.

With this you can move this quantity through the sensory zones, so that when one is discharging energy, signals will be sent to other sensory zones to trap down other capacitors so that they will not discharge at the same time. The reason is that if they discharge at the same time, before we wait for lightning to come again, it may take a longer time and people will say the invention is not complete. “That is why we have to create a control measure to shut down other storage zones when one is working.

For the one that is working the device is built in such a way that only one sensory zone works from the five megavolts stored in the first storage zone. “That one megavolt is being transmitted to the conversion zone and this is transmitting electricity into current electricity.


When lightning comes with static electricity for instance when there is power outage, especially when it is raining. All of a sudden, there is lightning haze and when it is so, you find out that when lightning strikes, the earth wire will absorb the lightening energy and that energy that is being discharged to the ground carries the energy to the house socket through earth wire.

And if the electricity is plugged to the wall socket, the neutral wire will transmit that energy through the wire that is inserted to the plug. When it gets to the electronics, it powers it automatically and that is the moment when it is going off, you will see smoke coming from the socket. “I have not been able to trap lightning due to insufficient fund to buy the materials.

To trap lightning you will need high level energy industrial storage capacitors and this will be built either by Germany, China or USA. It will be built in such a way that when lightning strikes, it will charge the capacitor and the capacitor will retain static energy and this energy that is being retained will be converted through a unit called conversion zone and the conversion zone is an industrialised material that will be built by synergic work of various engineers. It is a project for which the Nigeria Society of Engineers (NSE) needs to support me in order to come up with the work.

The materials to be imported for it are not within the country. “I have done investigations in Lagos, Onitsha and Aba and these things are not within the Nigeria market. We need to build a capacitor and the conversion zone. “Your car for instance, converts static energy to mechanical energy through the ignition system. That is what enables the car to move. The generator converts static energy from the spark plug through the electrical energy and that is how you have light. The motorcycle converts static energy and that is why you can ride it. So it is possible to convert static energy, stored in the capacitor into electrical energy to give light. “On the other hand, we will consult other research bodies in Enugu like PRODA which is into building of prototype.

The conversion zone is another area where we can source for engineers to build. Currently, what I am doing is incomplete. The prototype cannot generate power, but theoretically it is possible and feasible because it has been proven over and over by professors at the University of Nigeria, Nsukka (UNN.) “There was a time I was interviewed by three professors from the UNN. They called me at a time to come and explain how the strike of lightning could generate electricity in Nigeria and Africa for five years and thirty days. Why I said Africa is because lightning does not only occur in Nigeria alone, it occurs across Africa. So wherever lightning occurs, this power generating plant will be built there.



“The NSE is there to further the experiment, research, inventions to bring them into limelight. I found out that government set aside funds for research but how the funds are being used is a different kettle of fish. I am emphasising on NSE because in the USA, when a young person invents anything, all their engineers gather to give their support.

But in Nigeria, they will want you to carry out the research alone so that when you fail, they will say you don’t know what you are talking about.
“One major advantages of generating power from lightning is that it will save Nigeria from constant blackout. Every time you hear that water level has dropped and as such we are not able to generate enough electricity. There is no year that thunder does not strike in Nigeria and one strike of lightning can give power for five years and thirty days, then we will have enough power for our home and industrial needs

NFL Richard Sherman wants to be traded to Patriots

37 people viewing this

sports | By Bkjj11 - 5 hours ago


If Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman is traded prior to the 2017 season, it almost certainly would come this weekend before or during the NFL draft. Recent reports have indicted it’s unlikely Sherman will be moved, but that might not be by the All-Pro cornerback’s choice.

“He wants to be a New England Patriot,” CSNNE’s Tom E. Curran said Wednesday on “Boston Sports Tonight.” “My understanding is he wants to be a New England Patriot.” Curran reported earlier this month that the Patriots aren’t interested in Sherman, however.

To acquire Sherman, the Patriots likely would have to give up at least a first- or second-round pick. The Patriots don’t have either in 2017, but they do have first- and second-round picks in 2018 if Seattle would accept future selections. The Patriots could deal a player for Sherman. Malcolm Butler is under contract and could be moved, though he’s not as tall as Seattle typically likes its cornerbacks.

The Patriots also could deal a surprise player if they even are interested in Sherman. The Patriots already might have the best secondary in the NFL with Butler, Stephon Gilmore and Eric Rowe at cornerback and Devin McCourty, Patrick Chung and Duron Harmon at safety. Adding Sherman into the mix would solidify their standing as the league’s premier defensive back corps.

hiphop | By 313soulja - 10 hours ago



Quote:

Kendrick Lamar and LADP commish Steve Soboroff have apparently expressed respect for each other.

Hip hop's beacon of light Kendrick Lamar has been snatching hearts across the globe. The rapper, who used to play second fiddle to Drake in terms of sales, has overtaken the charts with his latest release DAMN. Now, LAPD commissioner Steve Soborrof has praised the artist for being "at the top of his game."

"I consider him a friend and he considers me a friend and I know that his manager and some of the other folks around him consider me a friend," Soborrof told TMZ Sports. "I've been there a long time and done a lot of things to help in the community and I just want to keep that up."

The two made headlines when they were spotted sitting court side next to each other at a Clippers playoff basketball game this week. Kendrick's "Alright" has been the unofficial theme song for the Black Lives Matter movement because of its strong stance against police oppression. Though Soboroff doesn't agree with all of K. Dot's opinions, he said he respects the rapper.

"It's an opportunity to say that the relationships between law enforcement and community starts with mutual understanding, respect for what other people feel, respect for what their experiences are. And everyone should be able to voice their frustrations [...] is a first step to come to a productive solution," he said, adding that Kenny and other hip hop celebs he's met have always expressed respect for police.

Article inside Chris Pratt on What Went Wrong With ‘Suicide Squad': ‘Too Many Characters’

29 people viewing this

movies | By SM - 6 hours ago


“It’s kind of a miracle that anyone’s got it right. You know?” “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” star says

Yes, “Suicide Squad” was panned by fans and critics, and Chris Pratt has a theory as to what went wrong with the DC film.

“I really like all the Warner Bros. movies,” Pratt told io9 at last week’s “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” junket. “I think they’re really cool and I’m not a real tough critic on those movies. But one of the flaws might have been they were introducing too many characters in ‘Suicide Squad.’ They spent 10 minutes telling us why should we care about these characters, rather than creating trilogies for each character and convincing us to care about the characters.”

Marvel, which produced “Guardians of the Galaxy” and its upcoming sequel in which Pratt stars, takes its time developing storylines of individual characters, argued Pratt.

“It’s like hardwood,” he said. “They grew it really slowly so it’s strong. They didn’t create ‘The Avengers’ first. They did ‘Iron Man.’ And they tested it to make sure it worked. Then they did [‘Iron Man II’] and [‘Iron Man III’], then they did ‘Cap,’ and then they did ‘Thor.’ And they created a thirst for these characters, and that’s when they put them in ‘The Avengers.'”

Warner Bros. is kind of doing what Pratt is suggesting. Gal Gadot will have her standalone “Wonder Woman” movie before November’s upcoming “Justice League,” and David Ayer plans to take Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn, first introduced in “Suicide Squad,” into the spinoff, “Gotham City Sirens.”

Creating a franchise is “really f—– hard to do,” Pratt added.

“And it’s kind of a miracle that anyone’s got it right. You know?” he concluded. “So. I think it comes down to Kevin [Feige], his filmmakers, and ultimately, me, playing Star-Lord.”

“Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” will hit theaters on May 5.

By the Power of Grayskull! Masters of the Universe Movie Sets 2019 Release



Sony Pictures has today updated its release calendar, adding two major releases to the schedule. Look for the animated sequel Angry Birds 2 to arrive September 20, 2019 with McG’s Masters of the Universe movie following on December 18, 2019. The still untitled animated Spider-Man movie sees a slight shift, too, moving one week earlier to December 14, 2018.

Masters of the Universe follows Prince Adam, who has the ability to transform into a warrior called He-Man. As He-Man, Adam becomes the last hope for a magical land called Eternia, ravaged by technology and the evil Skeletor.

McG, who is directing the Masters of the Universe movie, recently spoke with CS about his plans for the fantastic world of He-Man.

Originally launched as a popular Mattel toy line in 1982, “Masters of the Universe” spawned several animated series (including the female-driven spinoff cartoon series, “She-Ra: Princess of Power”) along with a 1987 live-action film. Directed by Gary Goddard, the first Masters of the Universe movie stars Dolph Lundgren as He-Man, Frank Langella as Skeletor and, in one of her very first big screen roles, a young Courteney Cox as Julie Winston, a teenage character created specifically for the film.

“I think we want to honor the fan base, first and foremost,” he said. “We also need to be cognizant of the incredible resonance of what Kevin Feige is doing with Marvel, and the balance of full-bodied entertainment. That it’s both credible and emotional, action-packed, and the story of a hero’s journey. It’s the genesis of He-Man, it’s the becoming of He-Man. We want it to be clicking on all cylinders in that regard. We’re not going to stop until we get it right.”

The December 18, 2019 release date will see the Masters of the Universe movie opening just two days before both Universal Pictures’ Broadway adaptation Wicked and a mystery live action Walt Disney Pictures fairy tale film. Angry Birds 2, meanwhile, is the first film to claim that date. The animated Spider-Man, then, is now set to face off against Universal’s Mortal Engines.

Video Shows Rape Accuser with NFL Prospect at Bar


4/26/17 9:03 PM

The woman accusing Gareon Conley of rape was friendly with the NFL prospect at a bar roughly 25 minutes before they ended up in a hotel room together ... and TMZ Sports has the video.

The footage show Conley leaving the Barley House in Cleveland around 2:20 AM on April 9th ... with the accuser and her female friends following closely behind. At one point the accuser reaches out and touches Gareon's back.

A few minutes later, Conley has his arm around another woman in front of the bar and the accuser catches up from behind and grabs his arm. Gareon looks back and appears to hold her hand.

The video is critical because it appears to contradict what the accuser told police -- that she first met Conley in an elevator at the Westin hotel around 2:45 AM.

Both sides agree they ended up in a hotel room at the Westin together. She claims Conley raped her. Conley adamantly denies the allegation.

We reached out to the accuser's attorney, who stands by his client's claims that she was sexually assaulted ... but says the police report that was released to the public is "incomplete."
