The artist talked about the explosiveness and fluidity in both his art and Griffin’s basketball game.
Griffin said Roper’s unique style captures the movement and explosiveness in his game. That is what the shoe is about.
Ultimately, this is only an advertisement for a sneaker. However, the images of the shoe and art actually compliment each other. The shots of the city and the audio of both people sharing their thoughts makes the advertisement well done.
The shoes were released globally on Aug. 1. They retail for $150, and come in three color options.
2016 No. 1 overall draft pick Jared Goff made headlines this week by being named the third-string quarterback of the Los Angeles Rams.
The Los Angeles quarterback also picked the Lakers over the Clippers this week. In a game with local television station KABC, Goff picked the Purple and Gold over the Clippers.
This is not the way for Goff to make friends in his new city. Either way, Goff needs to worry about his own game rather than the NBA teams. He better hope his Rams finish the season in the playoffs like the Clippers in 2016, and not in the lottery like the other L.A. team.
Besides, Goff played at the University of California. He is probably a Warriors fan anyways.
The Clippers also made some moves within their scouting department over the past week.
Last week, it was reported that ex-college head coach Paul Hewitt would join the team as a scout.
The Clippers are hiring ex-college head coach Paul Hewitt (Siena, Georgia Tech, George Mason) as a scout, league sources tell @TheVertical.
