Doin’ It In The Park: A Documentary

New York native filmmaker and playground legend Bobbito Garcia has been to every major basketball court in New York City.  As any basketball player knows, New York is the mecca of the game, and pick up basketball is the true roots. It’s gritty, rough, no nonsense basketball.  A game of love, passion, and respect.  “Doin’ It In The Park,” shows us New York City from the world of pickup basketball; where anyone can give it a shot but only a few thrive enough to make it out.  This film is so real and relatable to me; everyone knows what its like to bring your A-game, knowing that if you lose, you’re not getting back on the court. So put your heart into it.  Can’t wait until this comes out, a definite must see.

If you follow this blog, you can tell by now that this kind of modern art really catches my eye.  So I looked around and found some pieces by artist A-BB of none other than the GOAT himself. Shout out to A-BB for his work on these prints.

So ICEY!

First released in ’95, Jordan Brand is bringing back the iconic Air Jordan 11 ‘Concord’. After being retroed for the first time in 2000, the sneaker is returning after 11 years. A release date for the sneaker has been set for December 23rd, 2011, and you can be sure that these will go in no time. A true classic, after being debuted by Michael Jordan himself in ‘95. My favorite sneaker of all time.SmoothNYC™

Forever Remembering Shaq

Growing up in the 90’s, when you think basketball the names that usually come to mind are MJ & Shaq.  Shaq bought personality and fun to the game, and he was definitely smooth.  The center position is a lost art nowadays, and we’re glad we got to grow up in the Shaquille O’Neal era.  No one deserves to retire more than this guy; a guaranteed Hall Of Famer right here.  THANK YOU SHAQ!
