  • Hang-Time: Molten DX7 Basketball reviewed
    is a pretty good launch pad to attrach new fans On first use it was a bit too shiny a bit too slippery and a nightmate to shoot But like a thoroughbred once we d broken it in on an outdoor court to rub the newness off the surface it was transformed The greatest benefit from this ball is it s good for using to practice shooting and dribbling offering

  • Hang-Time: Answer 6 Mid Basketball Shoe
    the mean streets frequented by the Angelic Allen and onto the court The Shoe According to Reebok Reebok Answer 6 features an injection moulded mid sole and a polyurethane sockliner with a heel cage in between Now the idea of that is to bring more support in all areas but the result is a lack of flexibility For running it feels heavy and for soaring like Iverson well you can

  • Hang-Time: Reebok Master Link
    Link s jagged edges make it aim for aerodynamic excellence It s colourful without being garish but is maybe just a touch loud for wearing off the court The Shoe As a basic shoe Reebok or should we just call them RBK have come up with a decent idea No flash Just a good supportive case simple design and the NBA logo for extra creed Master Link is light enough

  • Hang-Time: Nike Shox VC
    other words The Look Leather and Lace Available in black metallic silver and white red We re not convinced that it s cool to wear shoes that have big holes running through the sole but if that s your bag baby then have no fear Vince is here In many ways this is a traditional looking pair of basketball boots but for sheer menace may we recommend the black sir The Shoe When we put the original Shox VC through its paces our key reservation was that the lacing was dreadful and that Nike tried to be a little too clever but with a little tinkering this could be the model for basketball in the future V2 version that is is so much better Lace em up take to the court and you ll feel like your skillz are just that bit madder even if it s just a hideous illusion More an overhaul than a mere tinker to last year s debut Vince it has so much going for it now While it s not the lightest shoe around which may put off aspiring dunkers it s by no means heavy Otherwise for sheer excellence in comfort and balance it s just about perfect The Shox system does exactly what it says on the tin giving you lots of impact cushioning with its cylindrical soles It also makes it easy to run in spite of the inherent elevation but with no fears about crashing over on one side A neat trick Not that it would matter there s so much ankle protection included but VC2 still gives ample room to move around And thankfully Nike have ditched the hideous velcro lacing which blighted the original in favour of good old fashioned laces Hurrah The other major upgrade is that

  • Hang-Time: Wizard of Odds
    into the court under the willing guidance of a great player turned bad Molinas a legendary New York City playground baller was rich handsome and a genius in every respect Educated in the Ivy League he never left behind his roots on the wrong side of the tracks one which revolved fatally around gambling and the honour of debts Former coach turned author Charley Rosen had access to Molinas private diaries and archives building up a near first hand account of how shaving a few points in high schools games spiralled into a scandal which nearly brought the entire sport to its knees Rosen sums it up best For Jack Molinas the real game was power taming the unknown manipulating people odds and possibilities making the future dance to his own secret music He just knew he was invulnerable that he could always think or talk his way out of any predicament Blessed by talent bedevilled by his addition to the thrill of the dollar and a blindness to his own fallibility Molinas evaded detection in the scandals which were uncovered in 1951 However he was soon arrested and imprisoned for a line of charges ranging from fraud to racketeering
