Although the Celtics lost in an ill fashion yesterday all I could think about was Rasheed Wallace’s Nike Air Force 1’s. I’ve admired this man for wearing this iconic shoe even though its technology is obsolete in 2010. I was more impressed with his “Gumby” colorway today than Kobe’s new White/Gold “Big Stage” Nike Kobe V. I had to pause my TV a few times to get a good look of this model because I was so intrigued.

And as I write this, I realize I will likely face the scorn of some of my fellow Bounce aficionados. But I for one am getting sick of Kevin Garnett and the praise he receives for playing with intensity that derives from the streets. Read More »
