I think for my father birthday ill get him a pair of Larry Bird sock, yeah that will go over well, not really. While the old man is a huge fan of Boston sports hes more old school ginny than sports fan dad.
The flashy socks from Stance celebrate legends of the NBA including Dennis Rodman, Larry Bird, Dr. J, Hakeem Olajuwon, Patrick Ewing and James Worthy. Get the full colour prints HERE
There are a ton of Harlem Shake video’s and I have watched many but this one featuring the Miami heat is silly and fun, it shows the team as a whole don’t take themselves too,too seriously. As much as people rip on the heat…they seem to have some awesome team chemisty.
Who else laughed a loud seeing Mario Chalmers as MARIO? Was D-Wade the teddy bear? How amazing would it be if the Yankees did a Harlem Shake video?
ESPN was all Jordan everything this past weekend. it was The gawd’s birthday. Jordan turned 50, I’m stunned NIKE didn’t cash in on Jordan turning 50, with a sneaker.
I have a love hate with Jordan’s. When I was a young Sparks, I couldn’t afford them kicks. As I got older, I had to be selective with which I buy dude to the fucken culture vulture collectors, who raised the retail value buying several pairs and flip them for double or triple the retail value. Its a vicious cycle but one that can only be accepted.
In the video above, is a short documentary saluting his iconic signature sneaker legacy, and stories behind some of the most popular models from the collection. We get the history behind the infamous “Jumpman” logo and how it came about, with the Jordan III taking MJ as a brand to the next level. We also hear from Nike designer Tinker Hatfield, who has created some of most sought after Jordan models of all times.
I mean its only fitting that the broski, gets to be heard weekly when CBS airs a NCAA game. Remember when you use to get hyped in the late 90s when the NBA on NBC played the theme music before you saw the bulls play? This is for my college sports heads, I hope you get the same feeling.
Jalen Rose sheds light on a situation between Vince Carter and Sam Mitchell. This all occurred during the Raptor days. This makes me wonder: why did Sam Mitchell move into coaching so fast? I guess he wanted to establish his post playing career. Whatever the case may be, peep the video and enjoy.
ESPN premiered the latest 30 For 30 from ESPN entitled, “Benji,” a few nights ago. The film masterfully documents the life of basketball star, Ben Wilson, the first Chicagoan to be named the top high school basketball player in the country.
Wilson’s career was ended far too early, the result of a tragic event. Above is the full for compelling story created by Coodie and Chike from Creative Control.
Well, look at what the wind blew in. Do you see this album that drops out of nowhere? You would think that he would have built up more understanding that THIS is coming out. Alas, let us keep jamming everything that is Smoke Dza.
Well, this is interesting enough. Mos Def in a Louis Vuitton commercial? But it works. No product placement (that I see), Mos dancing around the ring reciting Ali lines, and an artist (Niels Shoe Meulman) painting the ring with his “Calligraffiti”. I can’t even hate.
It is really interesting to see Stalley in this commercial. Call it his subdued culture. Call it his “lack of star power”. Whatever the case, seeing him in a Nike commercial for the Dream Team (and Olympic team of present) is a GREAT look for the king of Intelligent Trunk Music.
