Avengers Sneakers

Avengers Assemble! Marvel’s Avengers, Infinity War released this weekend, and massive spoiler: It’s Really, really, really good! Personally, I know my parents bought me X-Men velcro shoes growing up and that trend continues to this day for many kids. We’re going to steer clear of Target/JC Penny/Marshall’s Marvel shoes on this one and focus on branded …

First to Fly

Dr. J was art, rhythm, grace and force all packed into one. In all actuality he was moving poetry. When thinking of his game, feelings rise before statists – Julius Erving’s presence truly was a present on the basketball court. If anything the Doctor was a superhero in short shorts, high socks and converse. Many …

Young KD’s Shine

Like most up-and-coming NBA superstars, Kevin Durant experienced his fair share of bumps and bruises along the way of his championship journey. Once the masses realized how truly talented KD was, pressure and expectations started flooding in from all directions. Uncle Ben in Spiderman said it best, “With great power comes great responsibility.” By the …

It Takes Two…

Never, ever, forget that Michael Jordan wouldn’t have won 6 championships without the help of one Scott Pippen. Commonly labeled as Mike’s running mate, Pippen’s game perfectly complimented MJ’s and helped revolutionize the NBA Wing. Scottie was one of the first small forwards that could push tempo, lock down defenders, fishing on the break and hit …

Lets get right into it and start the week off with a look back at some of the silent superstar’s PE collection in anticipation of his first public release this Saturday. Air Jordan 1 Pass The …

Young King’s Domination

Earlier this week LeBron was on the court doing his best Michael Jackson impression (with the rest of the Cavs looking like a bunch of Titos) dropping 46 points in Game 2 against the Pacers. The performance was vintage Bron but with a twist – he did most of his damage in the 1st quarter, …

Moore Game Than You

Maya Moore truly resides in a league of her own, regardless of gender. “There’s levels to this -ish” when it comes to winning, and Moore has won on every level. Listing her accomplishments is a daunting task so lets have some fun and put her wins in perspective: Moore has won national championships in high …

Waiting to McHale

The 1980’s style of basketball was often a physical slugfest predicated on defense and tenacity. History has favored the ‘Bad Boys’ of Detroit in terms of notorious defenses but the Boston Celtics of the same era had their own brand of hard nose defense. Boston took on the personality of their star players’ personalties forming …

Only One Rasheed

Trill… the mixture of ‘true’ and ‘real’ most authentically describes Rasheed Wallace. There’s never been an inauthentic moment during his career; sometimes to a fault but it’s hard to judge an honest man. His talents on the court balanced his emotional outbursts to the tune of four NBA All-Star appearances and one of the sweetest jumpers …
