Earlier in the month the House of Hoops expanded from solely New York and Los Angles to Chicago. The House of Hoops kicked off their grand opening with the release of exclusive models as well as a performance by Common and other acts. Common was in attendance to perform “Universal Mind Control” off his upcoming album. In addition to Common, a few Chicago Bulls stopped by including forward Drew Gooden and guard Larry Hughes. Gooden’s Nike Power Max hit the Chicago House of Hoops in addition to more limited edition sneakers. The Chicago House of Hoops is located inside the North Riverside Park Mall in Chicago, Illinois.
