Beat Him By A Nose – Kobe Bryant Becomes the All-Time Leading All-Star Scorer

The place – Orlando. The time – time to play. The year – 2012. The suspect – one Black Mamba, Bean, KB8/24, Kobe Bryant. The mission – pass Michael, what else? Say what you will about Kobe, but when he sets his mind to accomplishing a goal, it usually gets done, and if it doesn’t, it …

Nike SB Dunk Low "J-Pack" and Air Jordan 1 "Royals"

10 Years Ago The Nike SB Dunk Low “J-Pack” Released

In the mid-2000’s finding a pair of Black and Royal Air Jordan 1’s meant trying to either find OG’s or 2001 retros. And if you wanted to skate in a pair like some of your 80’s skate heroes, well that meant dropping a pretty penny for a pair of kicks that would eventually get ruined. …

Happy Birthday Joakim Noah!

Needless to say Phil Knight is an important part of sneaker history. Really without Phil Knight there would be no Nike which we don’t even want to think about. For those that don’t know the story here is a cliff notes version. A native Oregonian, Knight went to the University of Oregon for college. There …

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Does The Unthinkable

No we’re not talking about striking a pose, although Jabbar is known for keeping picturesque company. Nobody will argue that Los Angeles Lakers legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar isn’t one of the greatest basketball players to ever play the game. After all, he is the all time leader in points (38,387). But one thing you would never …

  On this date in 1986, Los Angles Laker great Kareem Abdul-Jabbar became the NBA’s all-time leader in games. He is now in second place thanks to “the Chief” but Kareem is highly regarded as the best centers to ever step on the hardwood and one of the best ever, so the date is still …

Blow Out Those Candles!!! – My Favorite Birthday Sneaks by Bryan Hinkle

In my house growing up, there was a tradition – you got a pair of shoes to start school, a pair for basketball in November, and when the season was over you wore those until the next school year. Not exactly ghetto poor, but there were no multiple Jordans in the closet waiting to be …
