Monroe.

That surname is synonymous with basketball legend in the NBA league. Whether it be New York times Knick legend Earl the Pearl. Or one of the biggest, youngest and best of the free agent signing pick-ups this Summer, Greg Monroe. But still now the former Detroit Piston Monroe is a Milwaukee Buck it’s time for another Bad Boy to become instant vintage like an old classic.

So how about a guy that could even wilt Chamberlain’s stilt stats?

Just when you thought the Detroit Pistons forgot about ‘Dre, Andre Drummond has shown he is far from the digit on his chest as at just 22 years of age, this Bad Boy is the new hero of Motown. Riding with the Motor City chrome jersey and proving to be the biggest Piston in the Detroit engine. Big D is the biggest thing in the D right now.

Now losing Greg Monroe doesn’t seem that bad at all (although a painted post partnership of Monroe and Drummond could even rival San Antonio’s Duncan and Admiral, Mark Two; Aldridge). And with the one, two combo of the new big A.D. and Reggie Jackson (hows that for another famous sporting name of legend) the assembly line of Piston dynamic duos don’t even need the dynamo of Brandon Jennings right now. But you best believe they’re glad they’ve got even more under the hood.

Because right now Andre is putting up numbers like 3000. Drummond has been on a tear at the ignition of this new 2015/2016 NBA season and now he is your Eastern Conference Player Of The Week to go along with the Wests best James Harden of the soaring Houston Rockets. But even if the new king James is recording as many points in two games as their are games in the season, there is more than just the beard to fear in this video game league that is going all NBA 2K right about now with the guy they’re calling the next Dwight Howard, Harden’s teammate.

Racking up the numbers on the speedometer, ‘Dre Drum’ is averaging 20 and 20 like opticians…or more like Wilt Chamberlain. Becoming the first player in NBA history to average at least 20 points and 20 rebounds in the first six games of an NBA season since the Big Dipper. Now it’s time for the Piston’s new motor on the block with the swats to ride this roller-coaster as high as he can.

For all you kids as young as Lil’ Dre, Wilt ‘The Stilt’ was the most dominant center of all-time, arguably even greater than Shaq and Kareem. Michael Jordan in reality being the only NBA player in history greater or more dominant than him…or anybody for that matter. Still, records were meant to be broken and Drummond may be coming pretty close to a man that once averaged 50 points and 25 rebounds in a season and even recorded 100 points in a single game. Now we’re not saying Drummond could drum up stats like this but he really is fueling the box-office tank with the lines he’s filling up.

Just yesterday he put down 29 and 27 as Detroit put down the Portland Trail Blazers 120-103. That’s almost 30 and 30. Now how would that be for an average? Now that would be worthy of an ESPN documentary. Or the next biggest man in this next generation league of a small ball revolution. Hotter than Curry hitting 53 on opening night there’s a chef cooking in Motown like Berry Gordy making music. Now how’s that for a hit?

It’s all green lights on 8 mile road as ‘Dre is in his own lane. The home of Wonder and Marvin hasn’t been grabbed like this since Rodman was running the rebound boards. And this boy is anything but bad…

…now whatcha gonna do?!

Dame Time Forever. What Are Those New Adidas ‘Black Panther’s’?

Published

A Nation Under Our Sneakers...

Adidas are in the Endgame now.

Before we get started, Havlicek would have stole that ball. Just saying Paul George. Stop acting like Paul Pierce. It wasn’t a “bad shot”. And R.I.P. to a Boston Celtic and storied NBA great. Dear John will be stealing every ball in hoop heaven. Rest peacefully.

Like a cat toying with a mouse. That’s how we described Lillard’s Dame Time winning clutch three from Mt. Hood as Portland gave Oklahoma City roses in the first round this week. Damian had more clock than grandfather’s and still took his time. Because it is his after all.

And now as timely as ever in the same week as one of the greatest playoff game and series winning shots in basketball for all time and one of the biggest blockbusters in Hollywood history coming out with ‘Avengers: Endgame’, this cat is building a superhero legendary legacy.

You better check a comic-book or something.

T’Challa may have been Thanos snapped to cat litter in the Avengers ‘Infinity War’, but the King of Wakanda has a regal gift by royal appointment to Damian Lillard like he did Victor Oladipo in a victorious Slam Dunk Contest for testament tributes last season.

The cat has something out the bag.

The pick of the litter…

Now you may be screaming “what are those” like Shuri at these royal sandals, but try these sneakers on. They embody everything about the next gen, nano tech Black Panther suit she developed for this emperor’s clothes. All the way down to the texture and trim which straps “Wakanda Forever” over the laces. The titan mad purple that runs like veins through Chadwick Boseman’s superhero suit absorbs all the blows he takes and turns it into a recharged deflecting energy pulse. Kind of like all the rock the baby and wrist tapping crap Damian Lillard was taking off Russell Westbrook before he absorbed it all and gave it back in a half century energy that exploded with a game winning fireball.

Never delete that footage.

Marvel have also gifted Dame with his own Black Panther mask like Oladipo, but this time canvas created from his super sneakers. Part of the ‘Heroes Among Us’ series from the three stripes, a comic-strip advertising campaign has been crafted. Featuring Lillard standing in front of the downtown RIP City, PDX skyline looking Wakandan in artwork akin to the ‘Nation Under Our Feet’ graphic novel redux series that rebooted this classic character before his feature film debut.

Damian may have played Killmonger villain to the Oklahoma Thunder, going G.O.A.T. like Michael Jordan B. But he’s a hero to us now blazing a trail like a human torch possessed with a fire and the heart of a lion inside all that panther power.

The Dame 5 will assemble with the arc of the bolted up ‘Iron Man’ Harden Vol. 3 for James and the patch of the ‘Nick Fury’ TMac 1 for Tracy McGrady. As well as the ‘Captain America’ Adidas N3XT L3V3L, and a ‘Captain Marvel’ Adidas Pro Vision for all those who could take the lead all day, with us ’till the end of the line. HIGHER. FURTHER. FASTER.

But we know which ones will be clawed off the stores shelf throne come it’s big blockbuster release with ‘Endgame’ right now.

It’s a drip fit for a King.

RIP OKC. Dame Time Clocks Thunder’s Reign From Way Downtown PDX

RIP OKC. Dame Time Clocks Thunder’s Reign From Way Downtown PDX
What Time Is It...

Blazing!

Even two games down the Thunder bolt boys joked like the last laugh that was yet to be delivered, like this what’s the 4-1 punchline. Zero to zero for the best series of these NBA Playoffs so far, Russell Westbrook rocked the baby at Damian Lillard, before mocking his wrist watch celebration like he did Laker meme Lance Stephenson’s air guitar strumming one with D’Angelo Russell ice in his veins. All before Paul George double pumped a dunk as time expired on a game that was already decided way before the horn blared.

“It is the unemotional, reserved, calm, detached warrior who wins, not the hothead seeking vengeance and not the ambitious seeker of fortune.”

But then last night before posting that Sun Tzu quote on Instagram in this art of war. In the face of P.G. the PDX P.G. beat the buzzer as Dame Time struck from way downtown RIP City. With an Austin 3:16 bottom line to give OKC the history engraved tombstone and the Portland Trail Blazers a legendary storied, legacy making championship belt for this classic series in hardwood history.

Reminding us of that time Charles Barkley responded to a Nike barbershop ad featuring former Golden State Warriors Chris Webber and Latrell Sprewell joking about dunking on him by putting all the points on them in the following game and running past them on the bench draped in dejected towels shouting, “put that in a f###### commercial!”

Colder than February. More ruthless than a convertible in Summer.

Damian Lillard 37 Footer Over Paul George
Damian Lillard buries series clinching 37-footer over Paul George – Photo Blazers

37 feet high and rising from deep. Deep as the halfcourt abyss. With the this time of season cherry blossoms blooming outside Portlandia’s Moda Center, the City of Roses was handing everyone from basketballs Oklahoma home funeral flowers. And leading the precession, hearse wrapping it up like his killer bars, Dame D.O.L.L.A was right on the money like exact change only please, waving goodbye. Even if Paul George walking off in defeat like LeBron James and getting his Vlade Divac on in a press conference more awkward than a blind date with an ex called it a “bad shot”. To which the great Dame simply replied with a tweeted “lol” (see also, laugh and last). He better Big Shot Bobby Horry check a newspaper or something. Dame Time didn’t just beat the buzzer. He took baby powder to it. As Dame had all the Louis Armstrong time in the world with ten on the clock and the last shot in this final frame to dribble drive or dish. But instead, toying with George like a cat does a mouse, as David beat Goliath like Jerry did Tom, Lillard had the sand to set up shop, his spot and his shot from what looked like a bunker. A hole in one, with the cocksure confidence of Tiger Woods putting for Masters glory in Augusta and embracing his kids, two decades after doing the same with his pops all for the green jacket.

From this master, like a tap in putt with no Mulligan to carry, this was always going in. Nothing but net. All water like those Thunder tears. O.K. now that was a 3.

And to think I swore I wouldn’t go back on social media until after the new Avengers movie came out, but DAMN Dame Time! Spoiler alert, this is the new ‘Endgame’ now.

Cousy. Pettit. Sam Jones. Wilt. Chuck Barkley. M.J. And now the Dame train as the legendary Lillard goes hard to join this lineage as the only players to hit 50 in a playoff clinching game. And what a way to do it, fading away to clock out of the game and series 118-115 for the greatest Portland playoff moment since the G.O.A.T’s shrug. As mobbed by teammates on the floor he sank into, telling Russ to ‘Get Out’ his house. Peeling off like Jordan, Damian all on his own like a devil, GIF turned into an instant meme, as he turned the Thunder into a memory (you know the one were everyone loses their mind around that smirking kid with glasses in the raincoat? Well now guess which superheroes face is super imposed?). Staring into the camera with that look you know was for Russell Westbrook.

What a whole mood.

Whose left holding the baby now?

Dame didn’t even have to check his watch. Why? Him, her, them. They all knew what time it was. His. As Dame Lillard just did it in the Oregon home of Nike. Shoe dog like Phil Knight, running off victory for the courtside crowd, including legendary comedian Cedric the Entertainer for this last laugh lap. As this Gladiator hit one of the best and biggest shot fired in NBA history. Subliminal and literal.

Are you not entertained?

Why not?
