Happy Holidays (Thanksgiving)

Even though Thanksgiving has a negative history (depending where your from). Its always a good time to get together with your family and forget about the past problems ( if there were any). I can only speak for myself and experience, but holidays can be a good distraction to just worry about family and food. No pictures this time... Just wishing a happy Thanksgiving holiday to all, and I will be back in NYC to bring it live from the 718... next week...

Happy Halloween From KickStart

Since I'm an NYC Native there's always something going on for holidays. The Halloween parade is one of these things. you will see people in "Alternative" costumes. (see below) some have one costume, and some I've seen have two. (I'll let your personal imagination come up with some combinations... kinda like what George Lucas does...) I don't know what is is about this year (maybe its on a weekend) but I'm thinking something is going to go on. I'll probably be there and I'll have a camera... 'nuff said. Lets see where that takes me, or "drags" me (no homo).
( Joker is wearing two costumes. you can argue its one, but who's really gonna argue this??... and the lovely Morrigan is one my favorites... If a woman is wearing this at the parade if will be posted Tomorrow...)

Here We Go top Ten Players at the Point

An interesting year for point guards. last year saw the emergence of two guards that will only get better. Derek Rose, and Rajon Rondo (hey.. where is this guy from?). Since the crop is getting crowed i had to make some tuff decisions here are my top ten for the season..

Chris Paul (Hornets, 22. 11. 5.) A real no-brainer, but on this I have to say is Billups was stellar against him. This made things interesting as to who comes after him..

2a. Deron Williams (Jazz 18.10.3) Still effective, still can shoot. will get better as he progresses.. But if boozer leaves can he handle the pressure to succeed?

2b. Chauncey Billups (Nuggets 18.6.2.) As close to a valuable guard as you can get has all the in tangables of a point guard and the main thing why he's up here... He wins... Just ask Carmelo how valuable he is... he's up there..

4. Jason Kidd (Mavs 9.8.6) Still effective in his 16th year in the NBA. Not as defensive stopper as he used to be but then again he averaged 2 steals last season. the mavs are fortunate he hasn't slowed down. Shawn Marion meet the guy who might get you another all star selection..

5. Steve Nash (Suns 15.9.3) was exposed las. season as a defensive liability (even though he was never a defensive stopper his whole career) Nash still had stellar numbers but without A'mare to feed the ball to the suns missed the playoffs. Who's more valuable Nash or Stoudemire?? neither of them.. it's Steve Kerr... he's the suns MVP..

6. Tony Parker ( Spurs 19.6.3) Il est tres mieux vite.... Translation: fast Rapide.. Still the best at making adjustments by the basket ( Derek Rose might give him a run for his money) still puts up all star numbers and with Jefferson on board his assists should go up too.

7.Mike Bibby (Hawks 18.5.3.) More valuable than i thought... He has molded the hawks into a run and gun team that creates matchup problems for every team.. we know he can shoot. he's a decent defender... Look for the hawks to regain their form again if he's running the show. Him and Billups shows you how valuable a point guard can be.

8. Derek Rose (bulls 14.8.3) A toss up between him and Rondo, but Rose might be a step quicker (I'm, probably splitting hairs). A decent shooter and passer as well as a free throw shooter (ask Rondo about that). He will be an all star. Bright future.

9. Rajon Rondo (Celtics 14.7.6.) In the playoffs he put up Kidd Numbers. Probably the quickest PG in the game now Srry Parker. his flaw is his shooting which makes him a liability on the floor with Garnett who likes to pass out of the post.

10.Baron Davis (Clippers 18.8.3) Kind of lost on the list because if he has a great year he in the top five.. if he doesn't then he's in the bottom five him and billups are probably the strongest PG's in the game. Hopefully he doesn't get lost in the clippers again... Blake Griffin will make things exciting for B-Diddy. I can see a lot of highlight footage.. hopefully for them that footage doesn't always have to end with "despite the loss".....

Notables ( of course Arenas if he can stay healthy. Jameer nelson another one who was injured.. Andre Miller, can he do the same thing that Billups and Bibby have done with his new team? Devin Harris on one of my fave teams eventhough they look like a dleague team now. Stellar play from him in the first half of the season got him his first all.star selection.. and you know who he can thank....... Yi Jianlian..... he can thak Yi.....)

SG's Next.... you know who's Number One....

Fall Stuff

Here in NYC we look forward to fall. Gives people a real reason to break out that middle eastern scarf/shall. And walking through union square last week, it's back. Yessir its definitely back. I've compelled a pile of things that will keep you, and whomever you buy these things for fresh. It's what our president would want us to do, to help the economy. I know here in New York that will never go out of style. You know having a style will never go out of style. Yeah that's what I mean.... yeah...

(Song of the week "Forever"(Remix) Drake Feat. Lil Wayne, Kanye wet (No Homo) & Eminem...) Asher who??? Who is that? Never heard of him Either....

Vick Returns (Me too haven't posted in a while)

Its been a while. I guess this is my season premier, I dunno dosent feel like it. I was rummaging through my closet because I'm selling a lot of Kicks (for full list contact me) ( Remember Kickstart??? yeah that's me). I stumbled on these and thought about the man who was supposed to wear them. No, not Jordan (aka the grudge master.. jus kidding but man Coors needs to put him in those venting commericials.... I guess insert Bryan Russell too.. he can now quit his job at the boys and girls club) kids... Vick. Well he's back and can finally play football for the first time in about 3 years. Seems a long time but its not. I know Plaxico thinks its a long time. What I wanted to say is are these worth anything?? I wanted to say one more thing. Said it.

(best players at their position coming soon... the NBA Season is around the corner... I smell a repeat... do vous?)

Need A KickStart?

Happy Birthday Magic

I still have that magical Instructional video I watched on Magic's guide to being a player.... He talks about when to pass and when not to pass as well as drills to keep you in great shape.... It also shows his highlights on what made him the greatest point guard of all time. He is the greatest passer of all time and the greatest point guard of all time. He will always be the best ..... Remember that....

Stuff's coming out (again)

Erin Andrews. Erin Andrews. Erin Andrews. Erin Andrews. Erin Andrews. There now Erin, everything will be fine; now you can come back out and do the sidelines again. If you've been under a rock then you know who she is. I don't want to talk about her being filmed unknowingly nude changing in a room. I don't want to talk about how it may be an inside job. ( the stalker makes more sense but that's what her co-worker wants us to think). I don't want to talk about the 6-7 different videos that were uploaded to numerous websites and blogs. I don't want to talk about the 911 call I heard this morning of two paraplegic paparazzi knocking on her door as she instructs her mother to put on her reading glasses and read their license plate. We all know the culprit is fellow sideline reporter Michelle Tafoya. Yeah it was her. She filmed it with the blackberry in the Marriott hotel. She would've gotten away with it, if it weren't for those meddling bloggers.....

Stuff is coming out by the way ('get to that next blog), and sneakers bien sur; This is Kickstart, Je suis SonLA.

A demain

Season 3

My third year. I still have been under the radar (thank all Nike talk and hype beast viewers who check the site. I will be expanding as I've said before).It has been a good year; the name changed from Kicks & Everything in between to what is can be called now ( legal reasons had to copyright the name ) which is KickStart. And since I'm from NYC ( Queens..man, I love queens [No homo]) I threw that in. The next thing that's on the agenda is the logo. There have been many drafts on adobe that I've been working on. Some look good and some look, well not so good. one thing's for sure it will be a household name in the future ask Christopher Lloyd if you don't believe me.... I threw the "chalk" in the air..... I'm ready for another season.

'Teef (with a name like Kickstart the logo's are endless... this guy was my inspiration....really)

NBA 2k10

Amidst all the free agent mixups ( and my birthday) I stumbled upon this.... Kobe returns back to prominence as the face of the NBA ( 'Bron is up there as well, but Kobe just collected another title last month). I haven't' heard anything new with this years version yet, but I know it will be good. They've been better than Live for years now. I was an avid live player but until I was introduced to 2k; I have been playing ever since. (hopefully this cover stays of course this early it's subject to change)

Three Years blogging next week. (7/19)

Icon Passes

My favorite artist growing up. I was going to put up some pics of him, but I want to focus more on this paragraph than the pictures. (it's hard to single out my favorite video of him; i had so many,when I do I'll post it here). it's hard to put in to a paragraph what and how an impact he had on growing up watching him. I've never been to any of his shows but my mom bought all his albums and the video's as well. i can say he's the first artist I've seen that is popular in every part of the world. i can't think of anyone else who was ( or ever will be ) that successful. He was a talent who could sing and dance on a level no one has ever compared to (or ever will be). I will be 45 and still dancing along with "beat it" (smooth criminal as well the full version the moonwalker version). Some people won't admit it but if your a true fan you will. There are not many facts that everyone can agree on now a days; but one thing we can all agree on Michael Jackson was the greatest performing artist all over the world. No one has inspired more musicians in every genre than him, no one. "Can't you See; the moon is walking".

Lakers back on Top of The NBA

What if...... What if the Lakers duo of Shaq and Kobe never broke up? What if Kobe never asked to be traded? What if Bynum never got injured? What if Phil never agreed to coach the Lakers again? What if Gasol played like Stoudemire around the basket? What if Odom (Middle village, Queens) never agreed with going to the bench? What if Lebron defeated the magic in 7? What if the magic never got Rafer Alston (Bayside, Queens)? What if Dwight Howard had post moves? What if Kobe Bryant wasn't a Laker? It was a long road to get to where they are now but it didn't take as long as it is going to take the bobcats to win a title. Maybe Boris Diaw needs to demand the bobcats to get better or trade him. Maybe then they will end up like the Lakers. Right? If it were only that easy........ Only in fairy tail land those things happen....... Congrats to the Lakers and their finals MVP Kobe Bryant.

The Triumphant Return

Dam. After popular demand. ( I guess) the OG color has returned. I was supposed to be retired from buying shoes, but all the great ones can't stay away. The allure of going back is just to much to cope with. (Except if your addicted to drugs like heroine, PCP, cocaine and cigarettes then you must stay away from any allure of going back. And ah ah ah ah ah-alcohol also, but this one can be the hardest to stay away from). I mean it this will be the last shoe I buy. I'm supposed to be " Kickstarting" myself into a business. Bon Chance said my boy whose in France as we speak (type if ur technical; read if your smart). Bon Chance.

Moment Of Silence

Hey psssst. Lebron I know your not talking right now. I saw the game. I saw how your team played; maybe you just need some time to think. The media can be difficult sometimes. It was wise to not speak to them. Wait about a week and then talk. I know you're not gonna bash teammates you guys did win 66 games this year. You had an MVP season no doubt. But hey look at how NYC's shaping up, or even the nets. I know Shawn jokes with you about it, but you should look at it now . A new area coming in a couple of years. They're gonna get some draft picks and where you go your good teammates might follow. I would be mad too; the playoffs are a bitch. Look at it this way; Danny's gonna have to get things in order now. Take your moment of silence and then speak...

Premier M.V.P. Lebron (wit"MVP"ness)

For this season he deserved it. Kobe Bryant was good this year as well but Lebron was better. He averages 1 block a game as well so he's starting to see how impactful working on defense can be. I know this will be the first of a few more MVP's he will win. Now with a 3-0 lead on the Hawks, can he lead them to a finals win this year?? I think he has a good chance of doing so. I'm pretty sure the rockets won't make it to the finals this year, but it would be interesting to see Ron Artest guard Lebron. It seems every foul Artest commits is flagrant (according to the ref's). That would be a good finals "brawl". (See even i'm banking on his reputation; i could've said match up). But I didn't .......

Nx. week more stuff's coming out...... (MVP Edition Lebron VI's, these will be a collectors item; look at the defining moments packs how the first packs turned out).
