It nike flyknit lunar 3 looks as if Nike is embarking on a mission to provide its customers with a new type of jeans. Enter, “ath-denim.”The athletic company has recently filed a patent for “architecturally reinforced denim,” which in essence would be a jeans-jogging pant hybrid.

And if you think the proud papa act is getting old, just wait, because when his son Lonzo enters the NBA Draft this summer, it's going to go to even bigger levels.We're going to see interview after interview with the world's most famous basketball father where he'll talk about how his son's brand is worth a billion dollars, and how he's better than Michael Jordan during the flu game, and his jump shot is a work of art that can only be compared to Van Gogh–level painters.
