Everybody has wondered when the traditional “UCLA stripe” will return.  Coach Jim Mora shows us that it has to do with the construction of the Adidas techfit jersey that requires a seam at the shoulder.  He says the company is working on finding a solution in the future.

Steve Alford, Dan Guerrero release statement regarding 2002 incident at Iowa

via UCLA

April 11, 2013

UCLA men’s basketball head coach Steve Alford and Athletic Director Dan Guerrero today addressed concerns about comments that Alford made in 2002, while he served as coach of the University of Iowa men’s basketball team.

Steve Alford:
Over the past week, questions have arisen about my handling of an incident involving a charge of sexual assault made against a student-athlete in 2002, while I was coach of the University of Iowa men’s basketball team. At that time, I instinctively and mistakenly came to his defense before knowing all the facts. I wanted to believe he was innocent, and in response to a media question, I publicly proclaimed his innocence before the legal system had run its course. This was inappropriate, insensitive and hurtful, especially to the young female victim involved, and I apologize for that. I have learned and grown from that experience and now understand that such proclamations can contribute to an atmosphere in which similar crimes go unreported and victims are not taken seriously. It’s important for me personally and professionally to make sure Chancellor Block, Athletic Director Dan Guerrero, all of my student-athletes and the entire UCLA community, including our fans, understand that today I would handle the situation much differently, with the appropriate regard and respect for the investigative process and those impacted by it. I look forward to being a Bruin and leading a program that everyone will take pride in, both on and off the court.

Dan Guerrero:
I appreciate and respect Steve Alford’s statement on this issue. Everyone has regrets in their past, but acknowledging them and learning from them shows true character. I was aware of this situation when we hired Steve and concluded that although he made an error in judgment 11 years ago, he had learned and grown from that experience. Our evaluation was based on his entire career, both on and off the court, and that is what led us to make our decision that he was the right coach for UCLA. Steve came to us with a tremendous reputation and record in New Mexico, and I am excited to see how he can build on and grow our men’s basketball program at UCLA. I expect all of our coaches to serve as an example to our student-athletes and the entire Bruin family, displaying true character and strong values. Working with Steve over the last two weeks I am confident that he will demonstrate the leadership we expect of all our coaches.

The moment Russell Westbrook steps off the bus in Denver for the Oklahoma City Thunder’s game against the Nuggets, you get the feeling that something insane is going to happen tonight. He’s wearing red leather motorcycle pants, a Superdry bomber jacket, black Doc Martens with the laces undone, and his trademark superfluous eyeglasses. A meager runway gallery awaits him—just a few security guards, OKC’s team photographer, and me—but he still disembarks with purpose. Even in a league that’s warped from “pinstriped spinnaker on draft night” to “pure line cut slim enough to make Beckham look like a slob,” Russ is a radical: His style is a punk provocation, a sartorial troll, and most crucially a full-on style, not just a series of outré outfits that no other player has the guts to wear. He’s swinging a leather Dopp kit with his right arm in a repetitive motion that could only be described as swag—young, black, and Oi!—and generally looking like he’s striding out of Malcolm McLaren’s London SEX shop in 1976. Every element of hiscostume is an extension of the identity he projects: part worldly NBA superstar, part suedehead hooligan.  

Russell Westbrook might be as well known now as a fashionista as he is for his play on the court.  GQ breaks down Westbrook and the new era of style that was swept through the NBA.  Read the full story at GQ.com.
