This is how I end up going on missions to acquire kicks and other elements to accentuate my swag repertoire. Just a simple encounter with Bek Live on the Deuce reminded me that there are so many other brands which deserve my dollar loyalty for their legacy of creating well made apparel.
The Descente brand has long been a sportsmens favorite for their biking gear and their ski wear. I picked up this ski jacket over the weekend off the eBay system for only $25 bucks and FREE shipping.
The aquamarine and royal purple hits reminded me of the Air Jordan VIII ‘Aquas’ that I had more than twenty years ago. I looked them up on eBay and the prices weren’t too enticing at about $300 for the retros issued five of so years ago.
Nike’s Jordan Brand division has just done a re-boot (you see what I just did?) of the VIII style called the 8.0 and they even have an ‘Aqua’ inspired colorway. The fact that these shoes are just sitting on shelves collecting dust means that by next winter I’ll have at least two elements to my ‘Aquaman’ outfit.
Now I need to find a ‘LO sweater which ties this whole thing together.
Something in royal purple…
Houston beat fire out of the Knicks yesterday with a stellar performance from a volleyball player. That’s right. Houston reserve Chase Budinger scored 19 points on 7 for 12 shooting. Budinger could might as well be a professional surfer with the way the Knicks are playing defense right now. The Houston Rockets were without their leading scorer and playmaker Kevin Martin yet they still handed the Knicks their eighth loss in nine games.
The Knicks finished off their road trip skidding to a halt. While Carmelo Anthony nursed his injured ankle and wrists Amar’e Stoudemire was mired deep in a performance quandary. Who are these Knickerbockers anyhoo? When did they become so enamored with the three point shot? This almost reminds me of the ill-fated Pitino era at MSG. But at least Pitino could instruct his players on how to execute a half-court trap.
The D’Antoni led Knicks are uninspired to extend their defense past arms length. And now even the teams offense has left them lonely. I was absolutely convinced several weeks ago when I personally watched the Knicks lackluster home court efforts that Mike D’Antoni would not be coaching this team into Black History month. Well, I’ve still got two(2) days left to dream I guess?
