Hey guys! The Big GH is back with another update designed to tide you over until the NBA season kicks off. This one is for all the hoop heads out there that like to talk a little smack while making it rain on your opponents. See that sneaker over there? It's called the ATR Talkin' Krazy, it was designed by the good folks over at Reebok, and it's almost guaranteed to take on-court trash talk to all new heights. (More...)

Times are rough right now for hardcore fans of b-ball sneaks. The start of the 2008 NBA season is well over a month away, meaning we're probably at least a few weeks away from seeing any new styles on display. Fortunately, last month's Olympic Games featured a welcome sneak peek at what's to come this fall. If you were playing close attention, you may have noticed many members of the Redeem Team were rocking souped-up versions of kicks worn last season, while some were wearing brand new sneaks altogether.

With its sleek design, messaging features and flip-out display-screen, T-Mobile's Sidekick remains one of the most popular phones on the market. But popularity breeds copy-cats, and a lot has changed since the Sidekick was first released over five years ago. Every company worth its handhelds has designed a phone mimicking the 'Kick's most popular style-points; some more blatantly than others. The combined efforts of these copy-cats definitely makes the Sidekick 2008 stand out a little less than the original model did in 2003... but no worries, Sidekick lovers! This upgrade's new tricks prove the old saying true: ain't nothing like the real thing... (More)
