AND THE AWARD GOES TO…

Wow … four? Really? K1X salutes and congratulates Macklemore & Ryan Lewis for winning the Grammys for Best New Artist, Best Rap Performance and Best Rap Song with “Thrift Shop” plus Best Rap Album “The Heist”.

And although a lot of hate has been circulating already e. g. cause Kendrick didn’t win any award in the Staples Center, let’s get one thing straight: Hip Hop in general did it big that night!

Also, Daft Punk and Pharell Williams took home the awards for Record Of The Year and Best Pop Duo/Group Performance for “Get Lucky”. Coincidently we still have a few K1X “Lucky tank tops” left.

Beko BBL All Star Day – Photo Recap

The Beko BBL All Star Day, held this past Saturday in Bonn, might just have been the best edition the yearly celebration in Germany’s highest professional league has seen in recent memory. Our K1X Warriors more than held their own with Per Günther, Brandon Thomas and Dirk Mädrich suiting up for the All Star Game while our boy Lipek went absolutely bonkers in the Dunk Contest. A special high-five to Ulm’s Will Clyburn who put on one helluva show! PG threw in the 2nd place in the 3-point shootout for good measure.

The style highlight of the night certainly goes to sharp-shooter Edgar Sosa, rocking our Blackboard Snapback Cap during the contest. Aside from a surprise comeback by Chris Ensminger (Salute!), Dirk Mädrich earned the fans’ outmost respect. Started from the bottom for real.

Big in Japan

During last week’s All Star Game in Japan’s premier basketball league (NBL), K1X warrior Michael Parker came up with 27 points (FG 13/15), 15 rebounds, 2 steals and 1 assist. This hefty stat-line, along with a series of highlight plays, made the natural born scorer the obvious choice for the game’s MVP. His obvious choice of footwear: our K1X Anti-Gravity!

The DVD! Basketball shooting drills….

The Urspring Academy is THE powerhouse when it comes to under-18 youth basketball in Germany, winning five out of the last seven national championships (NBBL). Leading the way is coach Ralph Junge, who recently developed a newly released DVD as part of the 1x1SPORT series, providing drills and shooting techniques for players and coaches alike. In the DVD’s short films, coach Junge and his players Lucca Staiger (German National Team, FC Bayern München) and Malik Müller (German Youth National Team, Virginia Tech University) demonstrate how everyone can achieve the perfect form on their jumpshot.
