Last Year Stephen Curry Hoisted the 2015 Three Point Contest Trophy

Laced up in the Under Armour Curry One ‘Candy Reign’, Steph Curry beat finalists Klay Thompson and Kyrie Irving with …

The Mailman Karl Malone Scores 61 Points in 33 Minutes

He racked up 61 points, and grabbed 18 rebounds and three steals. That night Malone was a flurry of fast breaks and ground shaking dunks. …

Happy Birthday Luc Longley, the Centerpiece of the 72-10 Season

No really, Luc Longley was literally the centerpiece of the Bulls phenomenal 72-10 season. Actually, he was the starting center for most, if not all, of the three-peat Championship run. Yet somehow, he is forgotten by many when discussing that historic season and I can’t figure out why. Longley was the first Australian ever to …

My Top 10 Kicks of 2015 – TheShoeRestorer

2015 was a great year for sneakers. Many brands put a stress on material quality and tons of great collabs dropped.

Happy Birthday to the Reign Man!

Shawn Kemp is my favorite basketball player of all time, period. He was raw, he was ferocious, and he could leap. At 6’10”, with the build of a god, he could dash past defenders and leave the remaining men stunned from a huge tomahawk jam. To me, nobody flew like Kemp. I’d seen Jordan dunk and I’d …

15 Years Ago Isiah Thomas was Inducted Into the Hall of Fame

Isiah Thomas, hobbling down the court at full speed with a determination unlike any other, scored 25 points in a single quarter while suffering an eye injury, back issues, and a badly sprained ankle earlier in the historic Game 6 of the 1988 NBA Finals. That’s the kind of player he was. LeBron’s cramps? F*** …
