Camron and Jim Jones Make Peace

Converse held a number of events in Atlanta last weekend in conjunction with their annual Band of Ballers 3-on-3 basketball tournament.

The highlight of many surprises took place when Jim Jones and Cam’ron reunited on the court. Cam’ suited with the Jones Family basketball team which swept the tournament for the second straight year. Jermaine Dupri’s team, So So Def fell to the Jones Family early in the tournament.

Other highlights from the weekend included a trip to the Georgia Tech Campus Rec Center which plays host to one of  many Converse Open Gym programs. Converse Open Gym provides youth with exceptional facilities to learn and play organized basketball at no cost. Sessions are held in Atlanta, Philly, and Chicago and available to kids aged 12-18.

We were also treated to a detailed viewing of the Converse Lifestyle line for Fall, 2010 which included an embargo on photography and the two OG colorways of the ‘Grandmama’ Larry Johnson Aero Jets.

A party at Dallas Austin’s house to watch Mayweather smoke Mosley capped off the amazing weekend.

Great thanks to Kathleen at TeamWorks Media for extending the invitation and privilege to attend the events. Hope to do it again next year, in Chicago.

As we continue to see Air Jordan Silver Anniversary releases appear on store shelves, the Air Jordan 11 Silver Anniversary still has no official release date, which makes authentic pairs of these a tough find. Shoe York has received stock of the mysterious Air Jordan 11 Silver Anniversary.  Sneaker connoisseurs are clearly aware that the Air Jordan 11 is one of the most bootlegged sneakers of all time. If stats were released, I’d bet the Jordan 11 and the White on White Air Force 1 would be the two most bootlegged sneakers. Those looking to buy an authentic  pair of the Air Jordan 11 Silver Anniversary can find them on sale for $299.99 with free shipping at Shoe York.
