October 22, 2019 — This past Saturday, Puma Basketball took over Pier 2 at Brooklyn Bridge Park to celebrate the launch of its latest performance hoops model, the Clyde Hardwood. The public was treated to a 1-on-1 “King of the Barge” tournament, as well as a dunk competition judged by Jalen Rose, New York Knicks forward Kevin Knox, and celebrity trainer Chris Brickley that both took place on a floating court set up off the side of the pier.

Rose is not a newcomer to the Puma Hoops family. He also participated in last year’s inaugural event, and has been on board as an ambassador for the basketball division of the sportswear brand for the past year.

With the 2019-2020 NBA regular season set to kick off tonight, we got a chance to chop it up with Rose about his affiliation with the Puma, one of its newest endorsees Kyle Kuzma, and some of his early predictions for the upcoming season.

This upcoming season is one of the most anticipated seasons since 2010 when the Heatles were formed. For the first time in a long time the League is competitively balanced. The Warriors’ stranglehold on the championship is over for the time being (although they are very much in the mix to possibly win it all) and now multiple teams has elite duos that are gunning for the NBA crown. Russell Westbrook and James Harden are reunited in Houston; The Lakers finally got their second co-star to play alongside LeBron James in Anthony Davis; and the Clippers made the biggest splash in free agency when they signed Kawhi Leonard in free agency while acquiring Paul George. On paper, The Clippers are looking like the most complete team in the NBA and few would be surprised if they represent …

SLAM: Legend of the Week: Jalen Rose

August 6, 2019 — In 1973, there were less than five boys born with a variation of the name “Jalen.” One of those kids was Jalen Rose. That number wasn’t much higher when, in 1991, Rose enrolled at the University of Michigan. By 1999, however, the same season Rose made an NBA Finals appearance, that number had skyrocketed to 7,400 names.

While at Michigan, Rose and four other freshman superstars, the “Fab Five,” redefined mainstream basketball. They wore baggy shorts and black socks. They shaved their heads. They talked trash. They bumped Ice Cube in the locker room. As Michigan …
