LeBron James Unveils New Uniforms For HS Alma Mater

LeBron James Unveils New Uniforms For HS Alma MaterLeBron James’ former high school football team is a pretty safe bet to be looking sharper than most of their opponents on the gridiron this season.  That’s because the current NBA superstar—along with Nike—is hooking up his alma mater St. Vincent-St. Mary with some new football uniforms.

‘Sleek touch’

On Saturday, he gave us a look via his Instagram account: The all-black unis are super sleek, while the matte helmets and visor add a sleek touch. Can you imagine still being in high school and walking out to the field, only to see your opposition dressed in these uniforms?

That’s the epitome of intimidation, and it should only help make the defending state champions from Akron, Ohio that much more difficult to beat in 2013.


Apparently there are a few perks of going to the same high school as LeBron. His charity doesn’t stop there, either.  According to the Associated Press, via the Washington Post, James isn’t just supplying the football team with new uniforms—he is outfitting every fall sports team.

Do you like the new unis that St. Vincent-St. Mary’s new football unis? And what can you say about LeBron James’ generosity for his alma mater?

Kevin Durant Engaged To WNBA’s Monica Wright

Kevin Durant Engaged To WNBA's Monica WrightSorry, ladies. It appears Kevin Durant is off the market for good. Kent Youngblood of the Star Tribune reports that Durant’s bride-to-be, Monica Wright, confirmed the rumors of her engagement to the Oklahoma City Thunder star on July 7.

‘Basketball playing girlfriend’

Robert Littal of Black Sports Online was the first to report the two were initially dating in May and initially urged us to take the latest report with a “grain of salt.”

It’s a tough situation for us spectators because, on one hand, it does seem rushed and a bit difficult to believe. On the other, these two have apparently known each other for quite some time (via Hollywood Life):

After being close friends since high school, linked by their successful basketball careers, the couple reportedly took things to the next level months ago. But romance has long been on Kevin’s mind: in 2011 he tweeted, “Or maybe I need a basketball playing girlfriend…hmmlol…monica wright where r u (love and basketball).”

‘Heart of gold’

And the feelings of love and admiration clearly go both ways. After Kevin donated $1 million to the tornado relief in Oklahoma, Monica gushed about her man: “He’s got a heart of gold, and anytime (something like) this happens, he’s the first one who wants to help,” Monica told Fox Sports North. “He’s a really compassionate guy.”

No details were provided on when or where the wedding will happen, which is really no surprise and therefore can’t necessarily be used as a means to disprove anything. Most people don’t have their wedding planned a mere 10 seconds after the engagement ring is put on the finger. The stress of planning the impending nuptials comes later.

When do you think will be Kevin Durant and Monica Wright’s wedding? Do you think they’ll make a good married couple? Feel free to share your thoughts with us!
