My best All Star Weekend memory The Latest / Feb 24, 2009 / 8:36 pm

I had a week to think and reflect about the last NBA All Star Weekend. The result is that there were just a few things that go down in history: Shaq’s presentation, KryptoNate, Rudy Fernandez, Kobe and Shaq ‘friends for ever’… Anyway, I’ll have a good memory in the form of sneaker: the Adidas TS Lighthing Creator ASW09. At first I thought that I couldn’t wear those colors, but then I realized that this was not the most important thing. The shoe is comfortable and functional. Now I have to look for a gold jersey to wear with those shoes perfectly. Anybody said Washington Wizards third uniform? Anybody said Agent Zero?

Special thanks to Marta Tejel, Adidas Spain.

He was diminutive, but so explosive and crafty. Playing with an understated yet pronounced ‘hood flair, the man possessed a point guard’s game that was subtley beautiful. He competed delightfully over every inch of the 94 feet that spans the court. He was a maestro, a true lead guard who made every one of his teammates better.

The handle was textbook tight and ghetto fabulous all in one package. The vision and precision of his assist game was simply striking. He could score, pass and steal with the very best. And he could make any defender feel lost and helpless, as if they were stranded on Gilligan’s Island without Ginger and Mary Ann. Read More »
