The Night Steph Curry Scored 54 Points at Madison Square Garden

It’s hard to believe that someone who has led the NBA in most 50 point games during the 2015-2016 season (3) has a career-high of only 54 points. If you sense a little sarcasm in my tone than you’d be correct. We’ve all seen the vines, gifs, replays, and highlights of Steph Curry on a …

On Expectations, the Air Max 96 and Street Fighter

The follow up is always harder than the original. The expectations, the real ones from others and the ones we place on ourselves, weigh down on us.

Remembering The Intimidator and Nike’s Racing Footwear Past

Today marks the 15th anniversary of the passing of a racing legend, Dale Earnhardt Sr. While most people will remember the aggressive driving that earned him the nickname “The Intimidator,” my memory took me in a different direction as it revisited some of Earnhardt’s history.

Kobe Bryant’s All-Star Game Sneaker History

Kobe Bryant’s final NBA season has had some ups and some downs. We have seen flashes of old Kobe, but then missing games to rest and not being in during the fourth quarter makes us realize the harsh reality that no one beats Father Time. But as the world counts down the number of games …

Anniversary of Kobe’s 2002 All-Star Game MVP Performance

With so many years in the league, it’s hard to remember all the great moments that Kobe Bryant has had on the NBA hardwood. One game that sticks out from memory was the 2002 All-Star game held in his hometown of Philadelphia. It wasn’t much of a homecoming for the Mamba though, as the fans …

Monkeying Around with the Air Force 1
