The 14-year relationship between Adidas and Indiana basketball Coach Bob Knight was ended by the shoe manufacturer last week because he failed to wear the company's apparel as required under his contract. But Adidas said it wasn't because Knight wore the wrong shoes. Nor did it have anything to do with Knight's recent one-game suspension for unsportsmanlike conduct when he appeared to kick his son, Patrick, during a game. So what's the rift?

Now that is one expensive shirt. Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III was fined $10,000 by the NFL for wearing "unauthorized apparel" to his postgame news conference Sunday. See, the problem is that Griffin has a sponsorship deal with Adidas, but the NFL has a league-wide deal with Nike. When Griffin arrived at the news conference wearing an Adidas T-shirt, that was a big no-no in the eyes of the league. So he was fined. Of course, considering Griffin signed a four-year, $21-million deal with the Redskins before the season started, $10,000 is probably not that big of a deal to him.

It was pretty enough to be a painting. The new UCLA basketball coach was choking up on the dais, his parents and family were smiling in the wings, stories about Wooden and Walton were flowing like Wilkes. At first glance, Ben Howland's homecoming news conference Thursday was a masterpiece. But on closer inspection, there was a smudge. Actually, a fingerprint. His name is Sonny Vaccaro. Officially, he is the boss of Adidas sports. Unofficially, he brokers the hiring of college basketball coaches.

Jeremy Scott  is the new creative director at Moschino , the brand founded in 1983 by the late Franco Moschino, who was known for his tongue-in-cheek approach to fashion. Starting with the fall 2014 collection, the L.A.-based Scott will be infusing the Italian brand with all the whimsy and street cool that have made Katy Perry, Nicki Minaj, Kanye West, A$AP Rocky and nearly every other pop star on the planet fans of his namesake label, as well as making him an attractive collaborator for brands such as Adidas, Swatch, Longchamp and Smart Car. I rang Scott on Monday afternoon to talk about his new role, catching him before he takes off for Milan on Sunday to work on his first collection, which will debut in February during Milan Fashion Week.  How long has this been in the works?
