PLAY GOOD: 361 Degrees succeeded in the three most important areas for any performance basketball sneaker — traction, cushioning and support.

The 361-Mazer more than held its own on a dirty, sweaty outdoor court in MLB Baseball Jerseys Greensboro, N.C. and a dusty gym floor that’s probably swept once daily. The tread isn’t very deep, but the rubber is solid. I didn’t have to wipe my foot once (though I wouldn’t recommend that).

The QU!KFOAM technology on the midsole is undoubtedly the shoe’s best feature. A carry over from 361 Degrees’ running shoes, it combines three layers of cushioning (molded insole, midsole and Ethylene-vinyl acetate cushioning) to make what has to be one of the most uniquely responsive shoes on the market. To put it plainly, regardless of whether you’re making a hard cut or exploding to the rim, you can’t outperform the shoes.

The entire NFL is getting reacquainted with the Minnesota Vikings, and many of them are getting acquainted with each other. The team that’s entering 2017 is recognizable in some areas, but in others, it couldn’t be more different from the same one a year ago.

Losing one of the greatest players in franchise history will do that. So will a catastrophic injury to the franchise quarterback, and a shakeup on and off the field triggered by that injury. The Vikings are going to look a lot different post-Adrian Peterson and, for the time being, post-Teddy Bridgewater.

They have to. Between that and the rapid decline after their New York Yankees Cheap Jerseys 5-0 start last season, they have no choice. Here is where things are changing as the end of minicamp season approaches.
