4 ELEMENTS 4 ICONS 4 BASKETBALLS | BILL MCMULLEN FIRE

After recently presenting the Basketballs of Marok and Frank 151 Feat. Stay High 149 from our “4 Elements 4 Icons 4 Basketballs” series, we can now give you an exclusive first look at the third part of the project featuring Bill McMullen.

McMullen is a graphic designer, illustrator and artist from San Diego, based in New York City since 1996. McMullen’s designs have found their way on to clothing, album covers and toys for various brands and clients. He has designed packaging, DVDs and promotional videos for many artists including the Beastie Boys, Method Man, DMX and N.E.R.D, just to name a few. Also focusing on his own artwork, McMullen creates limited-run editions, and has released several notable vinyl toys like the famous AD-AT or SHUTTLEMAX for Kidrobot.

For K1X’ limited artist series of basketballs, McMullen interpreted the element of fire. McMullen has created a flame-like sphere, allowing him to incorporate his favorite color, orange.

GOETTINGEN RULES EUROPE!

not only are meg goettingen the best dressed team on the old continent … they’ve been stirring shit up on the on-court too, especially in the eurochallenge, which is even more noteworthy considering it’s the first time goettingen’s k1x warriors are featured in a european club championship. after winning the first game in russia two weeks ago, the “purple squad” really flexed their muscles vs. the frenchmen from gravelines dunkerque (!?!, yeah thats what we thought too) in a lopsided 81:51 victory last night. so now they’re 2:0 and brimming with confidence. which is always a good look. as are the following clips, the first of which features a monster block by the man in the middle, jay boone. the second gives you a raw behind the scenes look at goettingen’s recent journey to russia, and the travelling life of pro basketball in europe.

HOW’D YOU GET UP THERE KADOUR?

After 20 years of dunking (and additional careers in soccer (professional goal keeper!!) and high jumping, kadour ziani – the man they call “zianimal” – keeps cementing his rep as “the godfather of dunk”. Reaching such a longevity is a complex process of daily stretching, body strengthening, jumping drills and mental work. The 5,11″ French-Algerian who recently turned 36 travelled to Phoenix to shoot his DVD “Learning to fly : How to play above the rim”, in which he finally reveals all his secrets to help you increase your vertical leap and flexibility. The DVD will be available on sportvideos.com for 30$.

here is a sample of what you can expect from the dvd:

IT’S THE METHOD MAN – FO’ SU’ MR. METH!

snoop dogg’s ‘wonderland high’ tour, which co-featured hip hop’s most energetic one-two punch in method man and redman, recently made halt in chicago. after meth repeatedly surfed the crowd, the duo ended their set with a chi-town anthem (“kick push”), when lupe himself suddenly appeared on stage (click the video below). we got a special kick out of an already extraordinary performance after noticing tical’s basketball shorts, which happen to be our very own k1x stealth shorts.

K1X GOES MADISON SQUARE GARDEN

this video recap of the 2008 5th Ave sports league charity game at madison square garden was just forwarded to us. besides the whole 5th annual sports league crew it features two of our buddies: corey “homicide” williams as well as the man known as “kool bob love”, bobbito garcia. thought we’d just share this with you.

Bild 3

as it is said in the video, the benefits from that game went to african countries that were exploited by diamond trade. similar to our efforts to help team sierra leone (pictured below).

YO RON RON: SAFETY FIRST!

we have no idea what ron artest is doing with a mini-me version of a formula 1 car out in la-la-land. but it’s good to see our boy hasn’t lost his edge. and even better to see that he’s sporting that kay-one-ex. the fact that one of the bystanders keeps on telling ron to think “safety first” has a sweet and absurd touch. and is very funny, considering we are talking about the one and only ron artest and a car he probably stole from set of the tom hanks movie “big”. check it out…
