Everytime I see A.I. a bit of sadness hits me cause I think about the fact he never got that championship and in my opinion never fully reached his potential in the NBA. With that being said it’s good to see his many accomplishments being rewarded with her Jersey being retired and interest being reignited with his sneakers.

Watch Episode 3 of “The Retro Shop” starring Shaq, Kemp, and comedian, Lil’ Duval with special guest stars, Allen Iverson & French Montana. A heated discussion blows up at the shop over old school vs. new school fashion.Some things never go out of style…

Rapper Kid Cudi has been involved in an altercation that has resulted in the Cleveland native being tasered and apprehended by authorities, according to multiple sources.

Detail are sketchy, but the rapper apparently was involved in a fight or altercation while at the Reebok party in Phoenix, Arizona. Much of the music industry is in the city celebrating the NBA’s popular All-Star weekend.

Eyewitnesses stated that Kid Cudi physically and verbally confronted a pair of Reebok employees. The artist was booked by the apparel company to perform at the venue.

Sources said that Cudi wanted to wear Jordan sneakers on stage, a move that did not agree with the people of Reebok.

Authorities intervened after the confrontation escalated and Cudi was tasered, a move to control his behavior.

The rapper was presumed arrested by police, but actual charges have not been revealed.

A representative for Kid Cudi was not available at press time

Allen Iverson, a Reebok endorsed athlete, attended the party.
