About the last era where I gave a damn about sports....Iverson brought some life back the NBA for me but after the greats left I started looking at these leagues 4 what they really are...A meaningless distraction....Untill we have the home team leagues (my people know what I'm talkin bout...lol...Although only a couple SMART people agree with me...) these games mean nothing....
#michaeljordan x #spikelee x #nike commercial #1994........... Did i want MJ to retire in '93? Hell no. Did i understand why he went to play baseball? No. But will i fault him for fufilling a promise he had to his father to give it a shot? No. I totally get it and its crazy how it all works. Cause really his father wanted him to retire in '91 after they won to do it!!! Could u imagine that? MJ tho had a great team and knew he could go on a champ run so he postponed it. But in '93 things unforseen happened. They tried to get at him for his gambling problems. His pops unfortunately passed. And he lost the love for the game. He started looking at being a player a job when its not...not for a guy like him. So when he retired from the game to play baseball, it gave him a chance to retrace his steps to b great again. Have some alone time to think about his pops. Go thru the motions of being on the bottom to work ur way to the top. Baseball provided that for him. So in many ways we gotta thank him for doing that cause he needed it for him and his sanity! Oh and he wasn't that bad of a player either....he was only goin to get better! Bet that!! @nikestories #kengriffeyjr#stanmusial#williemays#marsblackmon#airjordanix#chicagowhitesox#birminghambarons#chicagobulls#sneakers#sneakerculture#shoegame#kicks#nba#nbagreats#vintagenba#goldeneranba#mlb#mlbgreats
#jasonkidd x #nbaonnbc feature circa #2002....... Kidd was always a great player, he just played on some teams that didnt compliment well wit his skill set. Phoenix was close tho, just not there all the way. So when he goes to the New Jersey Nets, and u see a team that has a young K. Martin, Richard Jefferson, Van Horn & Kittles...that team is built to run & gun!! It was a perfect fit. Steph Marbury was the PG on the team before Kidd and they was below .500!! Now u see them winning above 50 gms and go all the way to NBA Finals!! Amazing turnaround right? All because of one great player changing the culture! So tell me this....how in the got damn hell he didnt win MVP!!?? Like how??? They gave it to TD, whose team been already a contender!! Kidd got robbed and its a damn shame!! Those Nets teams under Kidd was very explosive and fun to watch!! I miss those days!! #jk#newjerseynets#nets#newjersey#jkidd#mvp#nbagreats#vintagenba#goldeneranba#2000s#2000shiphop#vintage#vintagehiphop#classichiphop#goldenerahiphop
#latrellsprewell highlight mixtape circa #2001........ Spreeeee!! Back in the days Sprewell was one of my fav players after MJ & Penny! When he had that Golden State jersey on there was nothing he couldnt do!! He could shoot, drive, defend, and was just relentless on the court!! I just loved how ferocious he was man. He attacked that rim vengeance and had some killer dunks!! I was the only one in HS wit his Warriors champion jersey....nobody else had it!! Nobody!! Plus mines was in a sz 52....nobody knew those jerseys went that big!! I was the man wit that on! When Spree went to NY he was still doin his thing but by his 3rd year there was a lil dropoff and when he went to Minnesota didnt take long for the wheels to fall off. In retrospect, look at this highlight mixtape closely cause this man was a beast at the 2 guard!!! Incredible!! #goldenstatewarriors#gs#warriors#nyk#knicks#newyork#chockinniggaslikeimsprewell#spreee#2000s#2000shiphop#vintage#vintagehiphop#classichiphop#goldenerahiphop#nbagreats#vintagenba#goldeneranba
