Mitch Richmond in Nike Air Max Uptempo

“The Rock,” Mitch Richmond, Turns 50 Today

There isn’t much debate who was the best shooting guard to play during the ’90s, or ever. That title would go to “His Airness,” Michael Jordan. But who would be considered the second best? Many, including myself, would argue that would be Mitch Richmond. I mean there is no bigger compliment than when the G.O.A.T. …

Ronnie Fieg x Asics Gel Lyte III "Navy-Aqua"

Revisiting the Ronnie Fieg x ASICS GEL Lyte III “Navy-Aqua”

Five years is a long time in the sneaker business. Most shops fail before then. Many people lose interest in sneakers before they even get to that point. But occasionally, someone hustles so relentlessly that the sneaker world actually changes around them. That’s definitely the case with Ronnie Fieg. He dropped this Navy-Aqua colorway of the …

Meet Your New Hero – Grandmama!!! Larry Johnson Drafted #1 in 1991

There was NEVER a show like the UNLV Runnin Rebels in 1989-1991. Fab Five? Copies. Kentucky under Cal? No flash. Duke or Carolina? One was too “coached.” The other was too…you know. So what was special about UNLV? They would crush your game and your spirit. You might – MIGHT – beat them on the …

Dwyane Wade in Converse Wade "Playoffs"

Dwyane Wade Wins 1st Championship in Converse Wade 1

Before Erik Spoelstra, there was Pat Riley. Before Li-Ning and Jordan Brand, there was Converse. Before LeBron and Bosh, there was just Dwyane Wade (and Shaq I suppose). Way back in 2006, the then-young Wade helped lead the Miami Heat to the NBA Finals to play the Dallas Mavericks led by Dirk Nowitzki. Wade’s speed …

Under Armour Curry One MVP PE

Stephen Curry’s Performance in the UA Curry One Will Change The Future of Basketball Shoes

I’d say I’ll try to avoid the cliché of getting nostalgic in this but this is Sneaker History so that would be kind of pointless. That said, after watching the NBA Finals and seeing the Golden State Warriors and Stephen Curry win an NBA Championship, I think there is a good chance the Under Armour Curry One …

Reggie Miller and Pacers Dominate Game 5 of the 2000 Finals

“Reggie Miller, standing behind the arc, would not let the season expire for the Indiana Pacers. He squared, fired and flapped those arms some more. The range. The form. The rhythm. It was all there for Miller, whose shots splashed repeatedly into the nylon. All net. Almost even.” The words above, written by Mike Wise, …

Bulls vs Sonics 1996 NBA Finals

We all relish the fact that Chicago won a record 72 games in the 95-96 season, but let’s not forget the Bulls 1996 NBA Finals. We loved the fact that Michael Jordan was finally back in his old modest basketball self–while still in baseball condition and not basketball condition. The Bulls had suffered a loss …
