There’s only one thing that beats a game winning shot…
…a game winning block!
In the NBA Playoffs last night San Antonio Spurs guard legend Manu Ginobili turned back the clock like Emmanuel and beat the buzzer by beating James Harden’s clutch three-pointer attempt out of his hands.
This could very well be the play of the playoffs.
The triple-double MVP bound beard had 33 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists. But he almost had a quadruple double with 9 turnovers and one costly one at the horn as his 33 points weren’t joined by another triple and three. All was left was the new Big Game James rising and following through with the gooseneck but sans ball like an old NBA Live CPU.
This time for Houston Manu was the problem as number 13 had a stroke of bad luck.
Now the point propelled Rockets are on the ropes with one or two games to go. Down to the way the ball falls.
With Manu stepping up to the good ole days if only the Spurs had this time of clutch cluck when Laker Derek Fisher hit them for 0.4 seconds following Tim Duncan’s would-be game-winner all those postseasons ago.
But that doesn’t matter now. All that does is that with the game and the series momentum on the knockout line Manu saved the day. And now in this battle for Texas San Antonio have the advantage with only one game to win in what could have gone either way over one shot.
GINOBILI had 12 points, 7 rebounds, 5 assists and one of the biggest moments of his career and San Antonio Spurs and NBA Playoff history.
He also had the “grandpa juice” according to back-up guard Patty Mills, who called in to start for an injured Tony Parker posted 20 points and 4 assists. Manu had to man up as the Spurs were also without quiet superstar Kawhi Leonard nursing an ankle injury like boats in this city do the Riverwalk. LaMarcus Aldridge also had a monster double-double with an almost 20 and 15, 18 points and 14 rebounds. But it was Ginobili who went into full beast mode, shaving points off the beard and keeping the Spurs a cut above this series.
With the Mavericks fishing in Dallas this lone-state, NBA Texas triangle is about to come down to just one point in maybe as many a game. Or as many a point on the board too.
The block or the shot. It all comes down to has the fastest hands in the West.
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.
