Will Russell Westbrook's shoe deal affect his Oklahoma City Thunder decision?
It remains to be seen as to what Westbrook's new line of sneakers will resemble but this is huge news in the sneaker industry. While the exact amount of the deal is yet to be revealed, it's expected to be the priciest among all Jordan endorsers.

Target is offering a full refund for the dressers.

So far, there have been 12 reports of dressers tipping or collapsing.

One report claims the dresser tipped over on two three-year-olds, but no injuries were reported.

Made in Denmark, the units were sold at Target stores nationwide and at www.target.com from January 2013 through April 2016 for about $118.
