Now that the Boston Celtics had proved to be a team above the Cleveland Cavaliers and captured the Eastern Conference Semifinals, the big question of the week now goes to, where will King James land? Perhaps the New York Knicks? Perhaps with the Chicago Bulls? The question is well speculated but still remains obscure and uncertain. While NBA fans ponder and continue to stay glued to ESPN, the rest of the world is getting heated up for the upcoming 2010 FIFA World Cup, set to kick off in June. With only so many more days to go, some of the biggest happenings of the week does surround the soccer ball. Nike gears up with the "Write The Future" Campaign and continues to push its Nike Six (6) Collaborations. Of course, Umbro and adidas have stepped up in the soccer game as well. Stay updated and in the loop to get a feel for everything (both sports and non-sports related) going on as well, and keep reading to score your talking points and crucial information for the week!

By now, good Nike fans should know where Nike Air comes from-- from the star athletes of course! To celebrate the Nike Air Attack Pack release, Nike has put up a special Nike Air Attack Display not only at Niketown New York, but also in Taipei. Yes, canisters of magical air from the likes of Maria Sharapova is included. (Caveat: This is obviously a clever joke unless you believe in Santa Claus and leprechauns as well.)
