More Hybrids Coming

Just saw a number of Air force Nike kicks, on niketalk. com i still can't seem to find one that I like until I saw these above me. they're not bad, i 've got to see more pics of these. (thanx 23 is If your a Jordan collector I don't have to say which Jordan inspired these. you just know. I'm still not a big supporter of hybrids, (Air force 180 hybrids I talked about months earlier check my archive for a pic of another hybrid on the right.) I just think its a waste of two good kicks they're trying to mold together. ( those 360 running hybrids aren't bad they're pretty comfortable actually, but decided not to get them, to much for something that really you can't flip, in other words no re-sale value.) I don't get it, why do it ? But somebody up in Beaverton is thinking... Why not?

'teef (working on a paypal account, will soon start posting kicks for sale, and if you want me to try to find a shoe email me at

House of Hoops Opens In Harlem, NYC

If Your In The New York City Area, you must check out the New House of Hoops, a great concept store that was co designed by Foot Locker and Nike of course. For a number of years foot locker has had a section in their store that was subsidized by by Nike called the " House of Hoops". Now they have created a store for the future. I've been there, bought a couple of PE edition kicks. This has to be the first time nike has had that many NBA player exclusive designs in the store and for sale. If you like PE colors to your b-ball kicks then you must check this place out. I will post more pics of the store and the kicks nx time.

(check out Inside Nike for more info as well.)

Along with the air Pippens 1's (posted before) the Air Penny II's have been confirmed for next year (probably around November).

I also heard that there will be another penny foamposite color that will be a quickstrike release, (only men sizes and are limited, usually 3 pairs per size) the color looks like a cross between neon green/yellow, bottom and the shoe is all black. those will be out early next year. Be back wit some tips for thanksgiving.

Best NBA players at their position part 5: Center position

A week of NBA basketball under the books. glad to see there haven't been any controversy's with calls yet. but it is only the first week. finally saw the Celtics play. They're pretty impressive, how they seem to have an early chemistry already, I wonder how they will be as the season goes on. will be back next time with some heat. there are a lot of kicks coming out in the next month and a half. We all know how Jordan likes to save the best for last. And he always gets the year off right with something fresh. stay tuned !!

1. Dwight Howard (D-12) The best Center playing right now, i give him a slight edge over Yao for his fire and heart down low in the block, he's a relentless rebounder, probably the best rebounder in the league (behind Garnett and Big-Ben). good shot blocker, decent post moves. bad free throw shooter.

2. Yao Ming (Ming Dynasty) great shooting center, good post moves, ok shot blocker, good free throw shooter, lacks killer instinct, ok passer. decent rebounder but could be better for his size (7'6")

3. Shaquille O'Neal (Shaq, Big Aristotle) Skills fading slightly, still dominant, still a good rebounder, still a good passing center, still can block shots, still can rebound, still commands a double team, but still, one of the best centers of all time.

4.Pau Gasol ("Pau") Good shooting center, ok rebounder, can post up, not a shot blocking threat, but a decent scorer propels him, as well as his decent free throw shooting.

5. Marcus Camby ("Camby Man") really a power forward but plays the center position just as good as true centers. a decent shot. great rebounder, great shot blocker, decent defender, not a good free throw shooter, an ok passer.

6. Ben Wallace (Big-Ben) All defense propels him. great shot blocker, great defender though sometimes over powered because of his size (about 6'7"), great rebounder offensive and defensive, bad scorer and free throw shooter.

7.Eddy Curry: has emerged into a dominant scorer, with decent post moves, commands a double team, not a good free throw shooter or shot blocker, an ok rebounder but can rebound more for his size (6'11")

8. Zydrunas Ilgauskus (Big Z) good shooting center, ok post moves, not a legitimate shot blocking threat. decent rebounder but should also rebound more for his size (7"3"), a consistent good shooting center.

9.Mehmet Okur: has emerged into a great shooting center, though plays more like a forward. good shooter, decent 3pt shooter. bad defender, not a shot blocking threat, can work on rebounding for his size as well (6'11")

10.Emeka Okafor ("Meka") The future, great shot blocker, and rebounder. developing an offensive game, will propel him as well as working on his bad free throw shooting, but has a bright future.

NBA Best at their position Part 4: Power Fowards

This is part four of five of the best NBA players at their position. the NBA is loaded with talented power forwards. this was pretty difficult to pick the top ten in the game with so many established ones, and new up and coming ones that have surpassed older names. though once these two retire they will be others that may surpass them (after of course some accolades.) Here they are:

1a. Kevin Garnett (KG, The Big Ticket): always gives 110 percent on the floor, can shoot has range , good shot blocker MVP of the league, can lead a team, the best post moves and fakes around the basket, will have a great season with the Celtics, 20,10,5,2, can i say anymore?

1b. Tim Duncan (Timmy, TD): A champion, knows all angles of the court, can lead a team, decent jump shot, great shot blocker, 2 time MVP, Finals MVP, not a good free throw shooter, decent clutch player. great rebounder.

3a. Dirk Nowitzki (re-dirkulous, German Assassin): MVP of the league last year, best shooting player in the game, has extensive range, can score from anywhere in the court, ok shot blocker, ok defender, ok passer, lacks Killer instinct, decent post moves, decent rebounder.

3b. Amare Stoudemire (Standing tall and talented [S.T.A.T.]): relentless scorer, most athletic power forward in the game even after micro fracture surgery, almost un-guardable around basket, ok shot blocker, decent free throw shooter. Will be a better shooter as time goes on.

5. Jermaine O'Neal (JO) : good scorer, great rebounder, has been injury prone, good free throw shooter, transformed into a great shot blocker. great post moves around the basket. can be leader of a team.

6. Rasheed Wallace (Son-Ra, 'Sheed): A Champion, has a killer instinct to win, can score from anywhere on the court, developed in to a good 3pt shooter, good shot blocker, great defender, foul prone, can lead a team. emotions can slow him down, and build him up.

7. Carlos Boozer (Booze) : the future, emerging into a great power forward, can score and can rebound, not a great defender, or shot blocker, sometimes inconsistent, but has time and age to become an elite forward.

8. Chris Bosh (CBosh): An emerging forward, can shoot has range, will become an elite forward, has a bright future, can give you 20 and 10, a decent defender, could work on shot blocking.

9. Lamar Odom (LO7): Versatile forward, can give you 15, 10, and five assists, doesn't have a post game , can play and handle like a point guard for his size (6'10") decent defender, not a clutch performer, injury prone, has slowed him down.

10. Antawn Jamison: Another Versatile forward, can score from anywhere on the court, not a great defender or shot blocker, an ok rebounder, decent free throw shooter.

There are the top four PF's in the league who are just on another level, those four are really the best overall forwards in the game as well. Each of those top four forwards has an innate ablility that puts them in a category of four. (or 1a&b and 2a&b). And for the fools on who put Steve Nash over Kidd, Kidd just got another Triple Double yesterday 16,14,10.

Top NBA players Part 3 Small Fowards

The NBA season has finally tipped off and things look good. still haven't seen the new look Celtics in action. (they take on the wizards on their opener on Friday.) I still stick with my team the nets who i believe will win the east. But as we all know anything can happen. actually now with this ref thing going i hope anything can happen. with regards to the small forwards, this is truly a position that has more to do with size and ability than any other position. if your too slow or small then there's a chance that you'll have a tough time to compete with the other small forwards. here they are:

1. LeBron James (King James) :established scorer, great passer, unmatched speed and strength, in a power forwards body, shaky shooter, not good free throw shooter, can be better clutch performer.

2. Shawn Marion (The Matrix) : decent scorer, superb athleticism, ok jumper, great defender, superb rebounder, always a double double threat, underrated (except for here)

3. Paul Pierce (The Truth) : established scorer, can score from anywhere on the court, good shooter, decent clutch performer, ok passer, ok defender.

4. Carmelo Anthony (Melo) : great scorer, decent shooter, not a force on the defensive end, strong on the block, a pure scorer, good clutch performer.

5. Rashard Lewis (Raw Lew): good scorer, shaky defender, can be outplayed, great 3pt shooter, no post moves for his size (6' 10")

6. Ron Artest ( Tru Warrior): good scorer, decent shooter, superb defender, intimitador, great strength , has a post game. plays hard on both ends of the court.

7.Andrei Kirilenko (AK47): decent scorer, good jump shot, decent 3pt shooter, great defender, sneaky shot blocker, his defense is better than his offense.

8.Richard Jerrerson (RJ) : decent scorer, ok defender, great slasher/finisher at the basket, good jumpshot, underrated athleticism.

9. Luol Deng: good shooter, decent defender, has a bright future, underrated quickness.

10. Caron Butler: decent shooter, great slasher to the basket, decent rebounder, athletic around the rim.
