41 years. 21 seasons. One man.
Pump the motorcycles handlebars. It’s time to rev the throttle of the chopper one more time.
As Air Carter will fly for another 82 run as Vince agrees to a one year deal with the Atlanta Hawks. And the ring aint the thing for this once and forever King as he’d rather just play than pay for a superteam assemble ensemble for the throne.
After being King for a year last season, Carter goes from Sacto to the ATL and who knows. As although he says he’s 90% sure he’ll call it a game after this campaign, do you remember when Michael Jordan said he was 99.9% sure he wasn’t going to step down from Washington’s front office and become a Wizard Harry.
That left 0.1%. This leaves at least 10.
After ripping down Nets from Jason Kidd’s lobs in New Jersey, this former all tens Slam Dunk Contest legend became a journeyman of sorts. Logging time with the Magic, Mavericks, Suns and even Grizzlies. But you don’t need to watch the definitive documentary ‘The Carter Effect’ to see that Vince Carter’s most legendary time was up in the 6 with cousin Tracy McGrady as a Toronto Raptor. He was the north whilst Drake was just Aubrey. And for a franchise that started from the bottom and now they’re Kawhi Leonard here he was a storied icon of hoops history in this ‘Jurassic World’, despite the scorpion stinging ending.
It’s just a shame that V. Carter won’t conclude his classic career, above the rim, up north in the T-Dot for a homecoming reunion. But there’s always next year for the Florida, Daytona native.
But then again this is the same franchise that after firing last seasons Coach Of The Year thought giving up Demar DeRozan was a good idea. Possibly the greatest Raptor of all-time aside from Vince. Sorry Chris. Comeback Bosh.
Even if the team in the 6 may not have any sense right now it’s all about the A for V.C. right now. Welcome to Atlanta where the players play like Jermaine Dupri and Ludacris. Ushering in some dunks down the lane. Although Vince almost had to share his iconic number 15 with the 5 day contract of new Houston Rocket, Carmelo Anthony after they mockingly mocked him up a jersey to send to him, all in good fun. Admit it though just a few years ago twin wings of Carter and Carmelo running the floor with a rebuilding Hawks would have soared to the playoffs. At least they have Trae Young, Kent Bazemore and Jeremy Lin. This North Carolina grad that followed in alumni Michael Jordan’s Nike Air sneaker steps may not be able to jump over Frenchmens heads anymore but he can still bring the “Ooh La La” to your nightly top ten plays. The man with more hops than a bunny on Easter is far from “Wince” Carter when it comes to those knees. He still gets up.
And we can’t wait to see him spread his wingtips.
Get yours Carter.
New Nike Giannis Antetokounmpo Sneakers Are ‘Coming To America.’
“GOOD MORNING NEIGHBORS!”
“Hey! F### you!”
(With genuine joy and affection back) “Yes! F### you too!”
Ever since Milwaukee Bucks position and court redefining Point God, Giannis Antetokounmpo came to America like Eddie Murphy, he truly beyond a cliché changed the game and the watching world. And now with Nike, lacing up some new signatures inspired by the classic 80’s Murphy movie ‘Coming To America’, the Greek Freak is about to change the sneaker one too.
These new most valuable sneakers from this year’s MVP are so clean they’ll have you running up like Samuel L. Jackson in “McDowell’s”.
Time to get the brooms.
It’s about to be a clean sweep Foot Locker.
Antetokounmpo’s first sneaker the Nike Freak 1 is about to take all those LeBron, Kobe’s and Westbrook’s to the shoeboxes with this breath of Air. Fresh out the cardboard these colorful pairs have a reversed swoosh like Travis Scott. Perfect for any shoe dog like Phil Knight. And these ‘Coming’ colorways also feature leopard, black, grey and gold accents to the men who would be King. Prince Akeem’s royal garb and the most inspired international influence this league has seen since the dream shake of Hakeem Olaujawon for a regal fit.
And with the gold ‘Coming To America’ logo on the tongue of these licks you can expect this revolution to be televised. But please bring back our favourite ‘Raw’ and ‘Delirious’ comedian for the commercial Nike.
This perfect pair for the theme of the perfect prototype player of this games future generation drip as hard as ‘ER’ and ‘Logan’ star Eriq La Salle’s jheri curl in this movie. Watch the shoes like Ronald Reagan said to Eazy-E when N.W.A. visited the White House according to The Game! If co-star Arsenio Hall still had a show (bring it on back again) then he’d have them as a guest on his couch. With or without the freak.
Put up a wall against these Trump! We have more shoeboxes to stack.
Wearing clothes are about to be a new experience for you as you unbox these with the rose petals that fall out like Tokyo trees after cherry blossom season instead of tissue paper. There’s also some ‘Coming To America’ inspired Freak 1 Nike apparel to match with some ‘I Love NY’ heart homages to the film about a prince who made his way to the Big Apple like this kid from the Olympic home of athletes in Athens, Greece did on Draft Day.
These really are the Crown Prince of Zamuda.
These Greek sneakers are so freaking good, you’re going to want to renounce your throne.
Come on, come all.
