Last month we reported about the NBA City Edition jerseys being produced this year. Every NBA team has created a special jersey that signifies the history and culture of each teams city.
The Minnesota Timberwolves debuted their City Edition jerseys last night and they were an homage to none other than the late Grammy-award winning recording artist, Prince. The music Legend was born in Minnesota and his legacy lives on through the city in various landmarks and annual concerts. The Minnesota Timberwolves City Edition jerseys are a play on Prince’s 1984 Album and Film “Purple Rain”.
When the look went on sale on Nov. 8, it was the largest grossing day at retail in team history.

Kevin Garnett was in attendance wearing a custom City Edition Timberwolves jersey.
The Timberwolves ended up beating the Trailblazers 112-96 last night. It’s awesome to see a big organization like the NBA pay homage to African American cultural icons, especially ones that have made a major impact in America.
Prince would be proud.

Could Condoleezza Rice Be The Cleveland Browns Next Head Coach
The Browns released a statement after reports circulated that former Secretary of State, Condoleezza Rice, could potentially be the franchises next head coach.
According to a report from ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Cleaveland Browns are interested in interviewing former Secretary of State, Condoleezza Rice, for their head coaching job.
An avid Browns supporter, Rice’s experience in professional athletics has been largely limited to the collegiate level, serving on the College Football Playoff Selection committee until her term on the board ended.
If Condoleeza Rice where to be selected she would be the first woman head coach in the NFL.

Following the surfacing of this report, The Browns swiftly released a press statement stating that “we are still in the process of composing the list of candidates and Secretary Rice has not been discussed“.
Condoleezza Rice also released a statement via. Facebook
“I love my Browns — and I know they will hire an experienced coach to take us to the next level.
On a more serious note, I do hope that the NFL will start to bring women into the coaching profession as position coaches and eventually coordinators and head coaches. One doesn’t have to play the game to understand it and motivate players. But experience counts — and it is time to develop a pool of experienced women coaches.
BTW — I’m not ready to coach but I would like to call a play or two next season if the Browns need ideas! And at no time will I call for a “prevent defense.”
