Salutes to Anthony Davis and all the newly minted millionaire man-children.

All of us here at love to celebrate the tragic comedy of Dontrevius Wenters every year right about this time…

This footage was shot in June 2010 prior to the aborted launch of EA Sports Elite videogame which featured OKC Thunder superstar Kevin Durant on the cover.

Watching this reminds me to give a shout out to Major (the only store that matters).

Okay, so maybe Lupe Fiasco and Russell Westbrook aren’t the second coming of Steve Urkel, but it doesn’t hurt to imagine…

The Kobe 7 Systems are so nice I had to make a video about them.


The Spider vs. The Lion…

Thursday, June 14th, 2012

The OKC Thunder have taken the first contest in the Association’s tournament finale but the real showdown is between the signature shoes of each team’s star players.

In one corner we have the KD IV, Kevin Durant’s sneaker. The best thing I have to say about the KD’s is how Kevin Durant demanded that Nike create a shoe with an accessible pricepoint. The KD’s retail for $95 and that is almost half the going rate for most sneakers in this hypebeast era.

In the other corner we have the Lebron 9. This is the first Lebron signature shoe I have purchased. What attracted me to the shoe was the instep sculpting. I love the way the arch is supported by the carbon fiber plate underneath.

The Lebron and KD shoes come in a bevy of colorways so it’s gonna be hard to pick which shoe shall reign supreme.

The KDIV ‘Nerf’ was a hypebeast favorite. The shoes came in a box with a Nerf sponge basketball and rim. Pictured directly above is the KDIV ‘Weatherman’ which most sneaker heads slept on at first.

The Lebron 9 ‘Cannon’ is my first Lebron shoe (that I paid for). Full Disclosure: FootLocker gave me the ‘Free Gums’ back during their Hottest Month Ever peomotion.

The KDIV ‘Year Of The Dragon’ edition is part of the 2012 Year Of The Dragon pack. I’m secretly looking for the Kobe 7 YOTDs

I just bought these Lebron 9 ‘China’ off eBay and I swear if they are bondooloo I’m gonna rampage. LOL
