LeBron James Producing Comedy Series About Sneaker Culture For HBO

Sorry Cleveland, but it seems more and more likely that LeBron James is LA bound come next summer. The latest clue comes out of tinseltown where LeBron is going to be producing his new HBO project which centers around two friends who own an up and coming sneaker store in Los Angeles.

The half-hour single-camera comedy about the insanity that surrounds the sneaker culture phenomenon that’s taken over the world seems to be filling a part of the culture that’s yet to be explored by a television series. If done right, it should be a smash. And with LeBron’s Nike connect who knows what kind of original sneakers and designs will make their debut in this series. Don’t expect Big Baller Brand or Kyrie’s to get any shine though.

Though the project has yet to be named according to Highsnobiety the series is going to be written by Shawn Wines (High Maintenance) and Lemon Andersen (She’s Gotta Have It).

No word on when a pilot might air but best believe sneakerheads around the world will be glued to their tubes and tablets when it does indeed debut.

P. Diddy Goes Sneaker Shopping With Complex

It was only a matter of time before Complex went sneaker shopping with Mr. Bad Boy himself, P. Diddy.

Stopping by Stadium Good with Joe La Puma, Puff reminisces about the ins and outs of the sneaker culture in Harlem that influenced his swag in the 00’s including the fact that he “never wore the same pair twice” of white on white Air Force 1’s. Must be nice.

It seems like does days are long gone as Puff does admit that he’s not a fan of white kicks anymore simply because they “make the swag a little doofy at times” and he doesn’t rock anything with a white sole because he just likes to “fade into the abyss.” Major key alert?

Puff then went into how his love of sneakers but lack of funds led him to get his first gig as a paperboy at the tender age of 12 and the “can’t stop won’t stop legend was born so to say.

But one of the most interesting things Puff remembers is deading a Jordan brand sneaker dedicated to the King Of New York, The Notorious B.I.G. (what?!) as he felt the design wasn’t up to par and didn’t do the memory of Frank White any justice.

After taking a trip down memory lane, Puff got to shoppin’ and ended up droppin’ $ 4,600 on some OVO 12’s, OG Jordan 1’s, and Air Jordan DMP amongst other kicks. $ 4,600 ain’t nothing but walking to the bodega money to the highest paid celeb in the world.

Check out the video below and let us know if the swag king made some impressive purchases according to your taste.

Report: LaVar Ball pitching $200 Lonzo signature sneaker

LaVar Ball doesn’t yet have an endorsement deal for his kids, but he does have dreams.

Ball is pitching prospective suitors on a signature sneaker for his son, Lonzo, who is projected to be a top-three pick in the upcoming NBA draft.

LaVar is targeting the $ 200-tier for Lonzo's first basketball sneaker, sources told Nick DePaula of The Vertical. That price point exceeds the signature sneakers of notable superstars like Kyrie Irving, Paul George, James Harden, and Stephen Curry.

The Big Baller Brand, under LaVar’s control, remains firm on its plans to co-partner with sneaker brands. The plan is to have the partnering company produce shoes while licencing BBB.

Nike, Adidas, and Under Armour were not receptive to this pitch, hence why LaVar's company is now reaching out to Chinese companies Anta, Li-Ning, and Peak.
