It is not uncommon for professional basketball players to be given their own shoe by companies like Nike, Reebok and Adidas.
And for some players, like Michael Jordan, their line continues long after they've retired from the game.
Apparently Charles Barkley has a similar deal.
Nike is releasing the Chuckposite Barkley Posite, and the shoes are adorned with Phoenix Suns colors. Of that, we approve.
Of course, we do not know if this is a shoe for broadcasters or players -- or both -- only that it is purple and orange. And odds are it will be more successful than the Air-Bombay Loafer, but we digress.
Along with the knowledge that a new Barkley shoe is on the way came the revelation that there is someone who makes YouTube videos dedicated to sneakers, where they are discussed and reviewed.
They want the look to "stay true" to the franchise's tradition and is not a total revamp of the color scheme. Also, anything that is submitted -- whether it's chosen or not -- will belong to the Mavericks.
"If you think its horrible that the Mavs own your design. Do not post. If you think its cool that the Mavs could possibly use your design and you will have eternal bragging rights, then post away."
Cuban also said tickets may be given out, and designs will be posted online so folks can "glance lovingly" at them.
The owner goes on to note that it's possible none of the designs will be chosen, and the contest will run through the last day in May.
Alabama quarterback A.J. McCarron's girlfriend, Katherine Webb, has made quite a name for herself since appearing throughout the 2013 BCS National Championship broadcast.
The beautiful brunette starred on ABC's reality TV show Splash, reported from Super Bowl Media Day and made an appearance in Sports Illustrated's Swimsuit edition.
And now we can add game show contestant to her long-winded resume, then again maybe not.
On Jay Leno's fictitious game show "Battle of the Celeb All-Stars: Reality Show Edition," Webb along with Kendra Wilkinson and Alexis Bellino were asked a series of questions on topics ranging from the three branches of government to Napolean to Gulliver's Travels.
Needless to say none of three women showed off much of an acumen for trivia.
