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!!!!

One Man’s Decision. Another Man’s Challenge:Kobe Bryant

One Man’s Decision.  Another Man’s Challenge: Kobe Bryant

Written by J.J.

A  new generation a new Challenge.  Magic Johnson once said, “There will never be another Larry Bird.” He was right, I don’t think there has been another Larry Bird.  There will never be a Magic Johnson.  And amongst the greats who have accomplished the most.  There will never be another Michael Jordan.

Greatness Attained

What sets apart one great player from another.  Michael Jordan took on challenges, accepted them, made his team mates better, and ultimately…challenged everything that was presented to him and…..resulted in 6 Finals MVP.  6 Championships.

Greatness Pursued

Every great player has a challenge that will solidify their immortality in the history books.  Kobe Bryant may have said beating the Celtic’s trio of Paul Pierce, Ray Allen, and Kevin Garnet was he toughest challenge yet.  I beg to differ.  To put his place alongside Michael Jordan, he needs to beat the new trio of Lebron James, Dwyane Wade, and Chris Bosh.  To take up the Challenge and conquer this decades best, Kobe Bryant, at the peak of his game must beat them.  To be separated from the Michael Jordan comparisons and all the championship comparisons…Kobe Bryant and  Lakers  must beat the Miami Heat in the NBA Finals.  `

Lebron James, Dwyane Wade, and Chris Bosh are still in their 20’s.  When the Pistons beat the Lakers, they beat Karl Malone, Gary Payton, Shaq, and Kobe.  So it can be done.  But remember, GP and Karl were at the twilight of their careers…..imagine if GP and Karl were at their 20’s….pretty crazy Laker’s line up.

With Kobe beating Lebron, Dwade, and Bosh….He will build and complete his legacy as the leagues Greatest Players…

That would be his 6th Ring…probably his greatest challenge and accomplishment of his career.  It is going to be an interesting 2011  indeed….

The NBA Finals: Will to Win

Posted in The Daily on June 14, 2010 by shotymeapparel

GAME 5 in Boston.  You can see it in the Celtic’s eyes.  Every defensive play, every play, every bucket scored comes from the heart.  A feeling of inner fire released in a  loud roar  From the first player to the last player.  You can see it.  Sense it, and if you are in front of Glen Davis in Game 4 , you can definitely feel  it( The guy was yelling so loud drool was all over his mouth).    The sense of urgency, the sense of hunger.  Simply put it as a Will to Win.  They wanted game 5 in Boston and the did.  Pierce, Allen, Garnet, Robinson, Rondo all did their things.  They played Defense, made their rotations and came together when it counted.   When you see a team together late in this series in this series, you see the Boston Celtics I see NBA Champions.

The Lakers can learn a thing or two with the Lakers.

Defensively,  the Lakers have to wake up.  Milk Carton defense, that is what the Laker’s defense has been referred to.

The idea of this moment becoming too enormous for the Lakers troubles him. “Just man up and play,” Bryant sniffed. “What’s the big deal? If I have to say something to them, then we don’t deserve to be champions.”

They seem to have lost their Game 1 and 3 momentum and fell off the face of the earth.  What will it take?

Kobe Bryant cannot do it all himself.  He can score 35 points, but that’s not going to help if everyone else is not confident with the ball. The Celtics Defense clearly attacks Kobe when he has the ball.   Kobe still makes his shots because he is…Kobe Bryant.  Yes you cannot Stop Kobe Bryant, but you can play defense, wear him down and contain him.  That means the 4 other guys, Pau, Ron, Drew, and Derek  have to go to work on Defense and Offense.

Hunger=Sense of Urgency= Will to Win

What is this Hunger? This sense of urgency? This will to Win?  It’s the insatiable feeling that an individuals have to succeed.  Kobe Bryant has it, you can see his focus.  But you know what? Besides Kobe, Derekk Fisher is  the other player who I have they will lose game 6. To win you need this.  Stop looking pretty and glamorous and play basketball.  Play hard nose, elbow throwing, jaw dropping, tenacious d-ing I want to win basketball.  It’s the Finals, all odds are on the Lakers.  There can only be one champion, and if the Lakers don’t step up….The 2010 NBA Champions will be…. the Boston Celtics

We don’t need this…

We need this….

Game 6 Tuesday June 15th, 2010.  Back in L.A.  see you guys then.
