MATERIALISTIC, a documentary illustrating the dream of 18 year-old twins wanting to produce and preserve the art of street wear clothing and branding. The film elicits the initial vision of Betts and Chet DeHart who began their love of clothes and what they stand for when they began shooting hauls of their clothes for the public on YouTube.

Vice brings us to Koh Panyee, a small island along the coast of Thailand. Here lies local die-hard footballers honing their skills on a floating soccer field along the water. The documentary rifles through the history of the floating field, which started in the early 1980’s when the field was made of wood, and the players dealing with issues of loose nails, the tide, and the unfortunate loss of the ball when kicked into the water. Today the field has evolved into a successful playing ground where the once overlooked fisherman have now become one of the most successful football clubs in southern Thailand, Koh Paynee.

Ibaka’s filthy block against the Spurs:
Jaylen Brown, Class of 2015 Wheeler High School, stole the show this past weekend at the adidas Gauntlet in Indianapolis by dropping 48 points with remarkable efficiency. Brown (6’7) went 15-for-22 from the field, 6-for-10 in threes, 12-for-13 from the free-throw, all while grabbing 8 boards and 5 steals.
No surprise that several schools have gotten involved in scouting Brown, including Kentucky, UCLA, Kansas and Ohio State.
Look for a commit from Brown sometime this summer.
