Dag, yo–I’m not even gonna front, losing to my old squad Shox in the Nike NRF League on Wednesday was mad depressing. I was amped to play against them as they’re all my peoples plus my business associates, but they also happen to be one of top two teams in the league (6-1)! We got smacked 61-41. Ay yay ay.

I finished with 13 points (although the books only had me down for 10, hmmm), and a couple of “ooh aah” moments from the crowd when I pulled out the Mango Tango container with a straw in the open court.

25th September, I woke up excited like a kid buying his first pair of sneakers. In fact I was about to buy my first real Fish-eye lens for my Canon camera. Why this lens in particular ? Because I grew up watching skateboarding videos where the fisheye is a religion. A few basketball photographers are using it, to me it’s the best lens to capture action in the paint and dunks of course. So I went to B&H megastore, always funny to see all those jewish people selling high tech and handling lots of cash. I did a first stop near the Madison, maybe not the most beautiful building but I just needed to try my new toy.
