Adam Yauch grew up in public as an artist and a person. He also grew into a pretty good filmmaker, and leaves behind a legitimately fascinating basketball documentary—and basketball document—alongside all those classic Beasties records.

With all due respect to Topps and them, Amelie Mancini makes the world's most interesting baseball cards. The French-born artist's hand-printed cards—dedicated to baseball's victims of weird injuries and ill-advised facial hair—are unlike any other.

The new Brooklyn Nets logo is reportedly the work of minority owner and businessman/business, man Jay-Z himself. It also kind of looks like something the guy who recorded "Hola Hovito" might have designed.
