During the ‘90s, the game of basketball experienced rapid globalization. Basketball fans around the world tuned in to watch the top talent in the game. Michael Jordan became the face of the basketball surge, rising to global super-stardom and inspiring a legion of fans — including Japanese manga artist, Takehiko Inoue.

In 1990, Inoue introduced the world to the fictional Hanamichi Sakuragi  the protagonist in his popular “Slam Dunk” manga series. Sakuragi began as an outcast at his high school with a reputation for causing trouble. After a girl rejected him, he tried out for the basketball team, where he showcased his natural athleticism and helped turn his previously unknown high school team into an all-star contender in Japan.

“I have been hugely inspired by Michael Jordan’s game, as well as his attitude. It’s been a great honor to have this opportunity,” said Inoue. “At first, he was someone from a different planet, he could stay in the air longer than anybody else. Then I began to see him as someone who always encourages you to set a vision and challenge yourself to achieve it.”

Inoue focused on details to continue the narrative of Sakuragi’s story, which hasn’t been in development since 1996. When readers last saw Sakuragi, he was sidelined with injuries. During the past 18 years, Inoue has said he’d imagine Sakuragi was still alive somewhere, recovering from injury and working out while continuing to think of himself as “the genius”

he once was in high school basketball. Those days inspired the illustration  which will never be published  on the Jordan Super.Fly 3, part of a new Jordan Brand collection created in partnership with Inoue.

The number 10 is present throughout the collection, replacing the standard 23. The number is a nod to Sakuragi’s player number and establishes the Jordan Brand x Slam Dunk collaboration as the character’s very own player-exclusive line.

“Using a legacy shoe like the iconic Air Jordan VI, as well as our latest performance model in the Jordan Super.Fly 3, served as the perfect vehicle to highlight the past and present  both in the product and the manga storyline,” said Gemo Wong, Energy Director for Jordan Brand.

The limited Slam Dunk edition has an interesting take on the iconic silhouette. An all-red upper features the iconic imagery fans of the 31 volumed manga series have grown to love. The images highlight moments from the series, paying tribute to the legacy of Sakuragi’s personal growth and on-court talent.

The Jordan Brand’s latest performance model — the Jordan Super.Fly 3 is the canvas for the new sketches of the “Slam Dunk” world. The all-black upper provides the perfect backdrop to showcase the continued on-court legacy of Sakuragi. Even the shoebox serves as an additional platform to tell Sakuragi’s continued story.

The collection also includes a red T-shirt with Sakuragi’s player number 10 in large elephant-print numerals and a white T-shirt with a sketch of the player and a nod to his fictional high school, Shohoku. Rounding out the line is a black hat with an embroidered “10” on the front, “Shohoku” on the back and a sketch from “Slam Dunk” under the bill.

There are many features of WeChat that are not known to many. Here are the 10 things you don’t know about WeChat:

 

1.You can actually act like a SPY on WeChat 
With their “Private Group” function, you can act like James Bond and tell your friend to just join the chat using your 4-digit password before they can get hold of your top secret. Without this password, you can’t join this private Group and they won’t know what’s the juicy secret they’ve wanted to hear.

2. You can meet a new friend or even a boyfriend.
By using “People Nearby”, you will get a chance to meet your next BFF or even your boyfriend to be. It has Tinder like features where it allows you to talk to people that are near your area. Who knows? Your prince charming might be a 100m away from you!

3. Their Stickers are moving and you can even create your own sticker. 
All the other chat apps uses stickers that are static. With WeChat, they’re moving! Not just that, you can upload your own GIF, upload it on WeChat and have your own set of stickers. You can even make yourself a sticker of your own face and turn them into moving stickers. How cool is that!

4. You can add up to 100 people on their Group Chats
While some of the other apps can only carry up to 40, WeChat can hold up to 100 people on the group chat where they can all send Photos, Name Card, use the Walking Talkie function, chat with each other and send animated stickers. Gather your whole high school batch on the group chat so you guys are all up do date with the gimiks, latest chikkas and upcoming reunions!

6. They were the first to launch “Hold To Talk”
Before, Whatsapp launched this feature. WeChat in China has already been using this service for a long time already. Why use hold to talk? When ya’ll ladies are in the nail salon and your nail polish is still wet, how on earth are you going to text your boyfriend to come pick you up already? Hold To Talk is the answer. It’s like a Walkie Talkie.

7. WeChat is created by the world-renowned Internet giant Tencent.
Tencent is considered to be one of the top five internet companies Firm in the World, and is on the same bar with only next to internet giants, Facebook and Google.

8. It’s a combination of all Social Networking sites and chat apps in the market.
WeChat is actually a messenger plus social network plus social media. It has Facebook like features (Moments & Official Account), Tinder (Friend Radar, Shake and People Nearby), Skype (High Resolution Video Calls, Whatsapp (Hold to Talk) to name a few.

But sports and workout is only a small portion of what makes the Pinoy Big Brother (PBB) grand winner fit and strong. The strength to do all his activities, especially after his recent big win at the reality show, comes from a daily diet that consists of a lot of protein that he gets from his favorite tuna.

“Food diet is very important for me. It gives me the strength to seize whatever opportunity comes my way after winning the top prize in PBB. And for me, the perfect diet mostly consists of high protein tuna from San Marino Tuna Flakes,” Matsunaga said.
