The L.A. Lakers superstar constantly redefines what longevity looks like as he battles in his sixteenth NBA season. In fact, …

Air Jordan 10 Chicago

Respect the Jordan 10

    The year was 1994, and Jordan Brand released the tenth model in their beloved collection in the “Shadow” colorway. At the age of 5 years old, this would be the first pair of Jordans I would ever receive, and would also be the shoe I credit for fueling my love for all things …

TBT: Jumpman Pro Goodness

No one, I repeat no one under the age of 25 has love for Team Jordans and it’s a darn shame. If a pair of Jays aren’t a signature, numbered retro Jordan then an asterisk (designating a lack of “heat”) automatically accompanies the pair on its way into Nike Outlet obscurity. Current star Jordan Brand …

Don’t Sleep on PUMA

Let’s be honest, when was the last time you purchased a PUMA sneaker? I’ll wait…for me it was the Alife x PUMA R698 “Peach Bud” in 2016. Needless to say, they sat and I picked them up for a ridiculous steal. Now in 2018, I can’t enter a sneaker blog or any social media without …

Where Did Nike Christmas Go?

Since Christmas is literally around the corner, it was natural to bring up The Nike Basketball Christmas Pack. This short-lived tradition by Nike Basketball was one of the many reasons I looked forward to the holiday. Some of the wildest, creative, and colorful sneakers were brought to life and graced store shelves and the hardwood …

Kanye West in the adidas Ultra Boost

Is the Ultra Boost Still Life?

Originally released in 2015, adidas had an instant classic on their hands with the Ultra Boost. Comfort, innovation, and style made this a must have for any and all sneakerheads. Personally, I own one pair of the original black and white colorway, but I remember trying to get the “Triple White” and “Cream” 1.0s…talk about …

TISH: Kobe’s Best

Only one Kobe Bean Bryant exists. That might be an obvious statement to some, but when viewed through the lens of competition and legacy Kobe’s name is rarely mentioned alone. The comparisons to Michael Jordan followed Bryant since his first game in the league; we analyze their move sets, we count championships against each other …

TISH: Gil vs. Kobe

Every couple months poll questions pop-up on Instagram or Twitter asking NBA fans to rank Gilbert Arenas in various scenarios like: Who’s better Gilbert or Steph (Curry)? Who’s the best scorer of the mid-2000’s? Who’s the most underrated PG of the 2000’s? Two of these three questions above are fairly outlandish (Curry has the hardware …
