One of the greatest ironies in sports is that as summer sets in across America and pick up basketball games become more prevalent, the NBA season comes to an end. Basketball die hards can no longer watch the nightly action across the league and then try to immediately emulate their favorite stars on the court the next day.

Fortunately, basketball apparel company Point 3 is helping NBA junkies get over this yearly period of mourning with their World’s Best Basketball Shorts. This line of shorts features two new design styles that incorporate cutting edge DRYV Moisture Control technology. What does DRYV mean exactly? Just think of it as having two patches of towel-like fabric sewn in at the hip. That means when you’re playing point guard at your local courts on a hot July afternoon and your palms start to sweat, you can easily dry them off right on your shorts, instead of letting your teammates down by having the ball slip away.

If having part of a towel in your shorts sounds too heavy, it’s not. World’s Best Shorts are made with lightweight 4-way stretch body fabric and incorporate ventilated heat zones along the leg where you sweat the most. The shorts come in two designs, the DRYV LT, which are slightly heavier and made with bonded seams, and the DRYV BALLER, which are lighter and made with contour body fit. Point 3’s latest creations have been battle tested at The Pit in West Philadelphia, one of the toughest streetball courts in America, and have proven to be the future of hoop wear.

Instead of getting depressed now that NBA season is coming to an end, get yourself a pair of the World’s Best Basketball Shorts, find the nearest blacktop and practice that floater you picked up watching League Pass all season.

Hublot’s sapphire Big Bang gets an icy new color
Hublot reveals new Big Bang in Glacier Blue
Hublot Big Bang in Glacier Blue

The newest addition to the Hublot MP-11 collection is a formidable presence, measuring a whopping 45mm in diameter and 14.4mm in thickness, so you'll need some major confidence if you want to sport this beast on your wrist. The inaugural Sapphire Big Bang was introduced in 2016 and since then the brand has delighted fans with an array of color iterations, from other sapphire colors to purple and orange. Now, Glacier Blue has been introduced, just in time to keep you cool this summer (in attitude, not temperature, unfortunately.)
Hublot: The Big Bang MP-11 in Glacier Blue

This Big Bang MP-11 features a 14-day power reserve, which is achieved through seven series-coupled barrels arranged in a horizontal configuration, and all of that can be viewed by the wearer. The truly vibrant Glacier Blue (seriously, the blue is so bright you'll feel like you're about to start seeing your breath) is made with a fresh chemical composition but still shares the same properties as sapphire: luminous, and able to withstand scratches.
Technical specifications
This Hublot watch will leave you completely mesmerized for several hours before you even think about the technical specifications, though there are some exceptional details to go over. Inside this MP-11 is the HUB9011 Manufacture manual-winding skeleton power reserve movement. As we mentioned above, there are seven series-coupled barrels, but they've been arranged in a coaxial and vertical configuration so the watch is able to maintain a super slim profile of just 10.9mm. All tied together like a bow on top is the blue transparent structured rubber strap with a titanium deployant buckle clasp.

The watch world is rich with history. With brands like Rolex, Omega, and Tudor coming out of Switzerland, it is easy to forget that they all owe a little part of their success to the father brand of all wristwatches, Patek Philippe. Since they created the first Swiss wristwatch for Countess Koscowicz of Hungary in 1868, they have innovated and led the way to create a massive watch industry that chronophiles love.

This year, at Watches and Wonders, they showed again that they are the best in the business by providing a whole slate of timepieces for us to ogle for the coming year. Here are all the watches Patek Philippe dropped in Geneva that you need to know about.
