My Top 10 Sneakers of 2015 – @marcohenry

2015 was an interesting year in sneakers for me. It was a year where I bought noticeably fewer sneakers than in years past, but wrote about them more than ever before. The culture has exploded in the last few years, and 2015 was the biggest yet. From Kanye West and adidas taking over the world, …

My Top Ten Sneakers of 2015 – @thetravpete

It was supposed to be great. We were supposed to be riding hoverboards and gallivanting in our power-lacing sneakers. In reality, 2015 looked far different than it was depicted in the movies thirty years ago, which might come as a letdown to some people. And I’m going to take a contrarian viewpoint from those of …

My Top 10 Sneakers of 2015 – @MrBrando3

In 2015 I decided to chill and only cop 10 sneakers, so that should make my list pretty simple, right? Nah. I didn’t get everything I wanted because we all face #sadderday no matter how good the plug is and sometimes we have not-buyer’s remorse when you think a pair might sit longer than they …

The Neighborhood Welcomes Mr. Robinson – David Robinson Debuts in the NBA

In a world that values flash, style, and brashness, David Robinson came into the NBA as the ultimate Boy Scout — Naval Academy, where he entered as a 6’8″ guard and finished as a seven foot shot blocking machine, two years in military service, and a smile that would put Magic to shame. Drafted by the San Antonio Spurs, …

Just Like Mike, Only…Grant Hill Turns 43

First off: no, I don’t only write about Duke players. I like other teams, really. It just so happens that I am a HUGE Derrick Rose fan; Kobe is high on my players to watch list, as are Dame and Steph and Kemba and Dirk. But here is the honest truth: Grant Hill is my absolute hero …

Who’s Your Daddy? – Shane Battier Turns 37

My love for Duke basketball has been well documented. From the Final Four team in 1986, a super-fan was born. No one, NO ONE, embodied the good of Duke basketball like Shane Battier. Laettner was the pretty-boy punk; Grant was the superstar; JJ was hated so deeply he is still hated like no one other …

The one. The only. EVER. – 1992 and the Dream Team Wins Gold Over Croatia in the Olympics

  The U.S. was tired, tired of hearing how the world had caught up. Tired of seeing replays of the 1972 Olympics and the screw job put on us. Tired of Russia running their mouths and saying they were better. There was only one thing to do: throw that “amateur” status out and bring our …
