Scottie Pippen: Hall of Fame 2010

Hey fellow readers.  Sorry being absent but things are pretty hectic.  Ben Working overtime with the Fall line up, Photoshoots lining up, and New Uniforms for Bay Area’s Tenacious D basketball Team. So Stay tuned…. But now….

As we know,  Scottie Pippen of Chicago Bulls has been inducted to the Hall of fame Class of 2010. It has been long over due and I am excited Pip got in to the HOF.  I always watched the Bulls when I was a young. Like many young Bulls fan, I tried to copy MJs fadeaway and up and under reverse layups.  I never appreciated the finer things Scottie Pippen has done for the Bulls during their 6 Championship runs. Until I revisited the Game 1 of the Bulls vs. Pacers playoff series in 1998.  Scottie, if you ever read this…I play defense because of you.

Where there is a Jordan, who is the “Man”…. Scottie nonetheless is also the “Man” in his own right. Creating Defensive havoc  on opposing guards with his 6′ 8 frame and 7’o wingspan.  On the Offensive end, he has the vision to see up the court for the pass, the skills to knock down the long three, the speed to blow by bigger defenders and the footwork and skill sets to post up on Smaller players.

Many people ask, without Pippen, will Jordan win an NBA Championship, let alone 6?  No. But I also have to add on, without Jordan, Will Pippen win 6 Championships?  No.   I can say Both great Players Complimented each other on the Floor.  Defensively and Offensively. They challenged each other during practice, they competed against each other.  In result,  they played…together, and won, and won, and won some more.

Watching Pippen’s Hall of Fame speech, the person who introduced him was none other than, Michael Jordan.  It was fitting.  I had a smile on my face when I saw that.  Such respect between the two players, team mates, and friends.  A great induction indeed.

Congrats to Scottie Pippen, Hall of Fame class of 2010.

Bring back the toys.  I remembered when toys were not as detailed back then.  Starting Line figurines were one of the first toys for  collectors.  Today, figurines have been upgraded.  Korean designer Cool rain has designed a set of Mindstyle’s NBA figurines that can be purchased later in the fourth quarter.  Looking at the pictures, they look awesome.  I am also a big fan of  Macfarlane Toys where the NBA players are well detailed.

Mindstyle NBA figurines are on my radar when they release them.  Are you going to get some??????  Just imagine, releasing the Bulls Championship team Set.  Oh YEAH!!!!

KOBE V MJ Tribute My Heroes Pack

Written by J.J

The Kobe V’s are an excellent low top basketball shoe to wear on the court. I took some time and tweaked it with the nike id. What I am looking as is a Kobe Version of the Lebron Heroes pack. If you haven’t seen it I will send pics of it momentarily. I designed two versions. The first Version follows a similar colorway as the Lebron VII Heroes Pack. The second version involves the more traditional
Jordan retro 11 ( Varsity red). Enjoy and please send me some feedback. Cheers.
