How Nike lost Stephen Curry (Business Insider)

“The pitch meeting, according to Steph’s father Dell, who was present, kicked off with one Nike official accidentally addressing Stephen as “Steph-on,” the moniker, of course, of Steve Urkel’s alter ego in Family Matters. “I heard some people pronounce his name wrong before,” says Dell Curry. “I wasn’t surprised. I was surprised that I didn’t get a correction.””

Main concerns about Nike (CNBC)

“Nike investors should be most worried about the excess inventory the apparel giant reported for last quarter, CNBC’s Jim Cramer said Wednesday.”

A moment with Ronda Rousey care of Reebok (DailyMail)

“Ronda, who is worth an estimated $9 million, became a national icon due to her exploits as the UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion, and she managed to win her first 12 fights in the circuit by stoppage.”

Thoughts about Kanye’s “adidas” on SNL (The Fashion Law)

“What you might not have discerned: Those white adidas sneakers were not actually adidas sneakers at all. Turns out, Kanye was wearing a pair of white Vans on which someone drew three adidas-like black stripes.”
