Klay’s Kicks

All-day Klay, Mr. Catch ‘n’ Shoot, Splash Bro(s) all great names for one of the greatest shooters in NBA history. Klay Thompson has made a name for himself on both ends of the floor since being drafted by the Warriors in 2011. A lot of players in the league can shoot, but Klay gets buckets …

Steph Curry’s Best Finals Kicks

Chef Curry and the Golden State Warriors will defend their crown in the NBA Finals starting this Thursday. He meets LeBron’s Cavilers for the fourth year in a row, having won two of the last three meetings. Fatigue on this match-up rises from season to season, but it’s also a testament to the Warriors dominance …

LeBron’s Top-5 Finals Kicks

This weekend LeBron James wowed the NBA yet again with his team’s Game 7 win against the Boston Celtics. The Cavs started the series poorly, quickly going down 0-2 but they rallied to win 4 of the last 5 games and advance to the NBA Finals. At times it appeared as though LeBron was playing …

Sample Sunday: Kobe 6

2010 saw the release of (arguably) Kobe’s finest signature shoe, the Zoom Kobe VI. Their weight, cut, support, detailing and traction were designed by Eric Avar with Kobe’s aggressive play-style in mind. Like any shoe Nike developed and refined their ideas which ultimately lead to the Kobe VI we’ve known and loved. For today’s Sample …

James Passes Jordan

Who stands as the NBA’s GOAT has been a heated debate since the league’s inception. Diehard and casual fans alike are conditioned to think Michael Jeffry Jordan is the greatest of all time, period; like it’s not a debatable stance (IMO Kareem’s the GOAT, but I’ll leave that by the wayside). Since Jordan’s retirement regurgitating …

Wait, What Are Those?

I was having a cup of coffee at Deadstock Coffee (check them out here) in Portland, OR this weekend and found something quite unique. The shop’s walls are littered with various shoes from different brands and eras. As I drank, an odd pair of Hyperdunks caught my eye and I thought… WHAT ARE THOSE!!?! The …

Ariza: Then ‘n’ Now

Trevor Ariza’s name typically doesn’t come to mind when thinking of NBA Journeymen but the Rocket’s two-way wing has played for six teams throughout his career. Last night his Rockets (which he’s played for twice) faced off against the Warriors in a heated Game 3 contest. Staying laced has never been as issue for Trevor …

Classic Curry

Stephen Curry puts the ball in the bucket from deep better than anyone in history, that’s no surprise. The guy plays with cheat codes on some nights. Because of his shooting capabilities the Golden State Warriors are never really out of a game. His performance on February 27, 2016 perfectly sums why he’s so difficult to guard. …

KD’s First

Earlier this week photos leaked of Kevin Durant’s latest signature shoe, the KD11. So far shoe purchasers (I’ll call us that, for now) have responded to Durant’s new look positively. The KD line’s longtime designer, Leo Chang, departed from what we’ve seen in recent years from the Durant line (it’s hard to deny that the …

And1 Rising

With a show of hands (that I obviously cannot see), how many of you grew up watching And1 Mixtapes on ESPN and DVD? My hands are currently waving violently in the air because l loved watching And1. They found a way to exist in a space independent from the NBA and thrive from about 2000-2006. …
