My view a few hours ago before my phone died. What a way to go.
Great game from the Raps tonight. Especially from Amir Johnson and Linas Klieza.
Can’t forget Bargnani and Calderon also.

Just finished watching the women’s World Junior Championship 100m hurdles in Barcelona. As great as Australia’s own Michelle Jenneke performed, I have to point out her brief warm-up routine was just icing on the event. Just sayin’
Blast from our not-so-past
I don’t know about the rest of you, but at some of the most random moments I remember things that are irrelevant to that moment.
During the weekend, I was doing some light reading and I happened to remember a commercial for Nike from early 2000. I’m not sure if anyone else can recall, but in 2001, there was a set of TV spots made by Wieden + Kennedy for Nike; this was called Nike Freestyle Basketball. I remember during the time it aired, it caused a craze within the community where street-ballers would try to put their own showmanship to their game (I was guilty of attempting this too). Not to mention, it also made its way into few hip-hop videos and a Wayans brother’s movie production. I think it’s safe to say it was a fad in sports that caught on. To the spot’s own merit, it featured a few NBA stars mixed in with a few names known to the street baller’s court. However, based on the way the spot was executed, it wasn’t so much WHO was in it, rather than HOW it was being done; the actions of these players in association to the beat was what we had to listen to.
My question is, where did this go? How did it die? …. Perhaps I need to further investigate this.
