Minnesota’s New Nike ‘City Edition’ Jerseys Rain In Prince Purple

Could You Be The Most Beautiful Jerseys In The World...

Dearly beloved were gathered in Paisley Park yesterday to give thanks to this thing we call life. Or the life of one particular artist formerly known that is. As the elevator brought everyone partying like it was the year before the new millennium up, Minnesota Timberwolves superstar Karl-Anthony Towns rode through the city of Minneapolis on a purple motorcycle. Making him look like he was about to tell Apollonia that what she just purified herself in wasn’t the waters of Lake Minotonka.

And when KAT took his helmet off on the ‘Purple Rain’ chopper and entered an arena of purple haze it wasn’t to honor Hendrix or former New York baller Cam’Ron. Rather the King of Minnesota.

Prince.

The purple Yoda from the heart of Minnesota. The beautiful one. The symbol of the twin cities. The king of Pop not named Michael. The G.O.A.T not named another M.J. The man who also if legend or comedian Dave Chappelle’s show has it once handed it to the late, great Charlie Murphy and his crew one night after the club in a game of basketball. Wearing the same s### as they did in the club. Ruffles and all. Never judge a book by its cover. Because this cat really could ball. Serving them pancakes after they well and truly got served. Would you guys like some grapes? Breakfast can wait!

Prince Rogers Nelson tragically passed just two years ago. But his legend like his music will live forever. With gold, platinum hits like ‘Let’s Go Crazy’, ‘Little Red Corvette’ and ‘Kiss’. But the Timberwolves paid further, in living colour tribute to the ‘Raspberry Beret’ purple one. With what will surely be what everyone is reading all about in the Star Tribune and Minnesota Daily morning papers like the previous day when Derrick Rose turned the concrete clock back and hit a career 50. As in collaborating with Nike and Prince’s estate, Minnesota’s new ‘City Edition’ jerseys reign in royal purple.

The T-Wolves already have the best unis in the biz with their new signature look. But now with their latest line spin-off that stands out even more than their florescent lime green highlighters (suitable for making notes with as you study), Minny have gone big as everyone else looks to go home like those new OKC’s that are just O.K. and those rumored Laker Magic duds that fans are finger and toe crossed praying aren’t as real as their as real as it gets new Showtime hallmark legendary line (why not have that cool Los Angeles Lakers script above some Mamba snakeskin black? Bring back those ‘Hollywood Nights’!).

Like Prince said about the Lakers latest and former MPLS home, “I like Hollywood…I just like Minneapolis a little better”. Which you just know the Wolves ran with for their pinned tweet on their latest unveiling. Shots fired. ‘All Eyes North’. New handle, “who dis”?!

As a matter of fact. As of press time (more to be revealed soon), the only thing to come close to these new Prince purple ones are those Bedstuy, Brooklyn Biggie, or Philly John’s brought to court off the ropes of a boxing ring like ‘Rocky’ with young creed Ben Simmons. Not to mention those 80’s ABA like iconic Nuggets multicoloured alternate takes. This purple pride with Paisley accents and other hidden messages are just Prince to the symbol. All the way down to the MPLS seventies sound typography of the shorts. So as you pull them up and lace up in this new gear you know it will be fit for a king…or Prince. Like when the Lynx ladies laced up some purple Prince inspired ‘Graffiti Bridge’ kicks for their championship finals run.

Minnesota and the Timberwolves are truly giving back and putting on for their city this year. As these uniforms for their Towns, Butler and Wiggins new power generation and the revolution of Rose’s renaissance also suit up in the franchise contributing to charities close to the heart of the face of Minneapolis who gave so much even when people knew so little. And that is a testament in this instant vintage throwback more fitting than when Timberlake lit up the city as a symbolic gesture at this year’s Superbowl for the king of the halftime show.

Now dream, if you can, a courtyard. An ocean of violets in bloom. Because with these diamonds and pearls offered in love, there’s going to be a lot of happy boys and girls.

Lakers Finally Get Anthony Davis. But At What Cost?

Published

Lakers Finally Get Anthony Davis But At What Cost
Hold On, We're Making Hollywood Your Home...

Ambivalence.

Like a rat crawling over some controls and releasing Scott Lang from the Quantum Realm in this Endgame, just like that the Lakers have their Ant-Man. And it’s an avenging, giant, levelling up move.

Anthony Davis is finally a Los Angeles Laker.

Still I hate to piss on this parade and sound like Morgan Freeman in ‘The Dark Knight’, but at what cost?

Well to be specific here’s the receipt.

Lonzo Ball (bad move).

LaVar Ball.

Brandon Ingram (okay we expected that, but still).

Josh Hart (what?!).

The fourth pick in this weekends draft (or should we say Cam Reddish).

And a load of other picks over the next few seasons. Or should we say a couple of Jordan Clarkson’s and Larry Nance Jr.’s.

Well at least they got to keep Kyle Kuzma for a formidable frontcourt that might be the new, next big three.

But the young core and that keep the hash-tag campaign is officially the casualty of this trade bait like the jobs of Magic and Dell Demps, that’s been fish on the line dangling for longer than that Kawhi Leonard rim rattling shot against the Sixers.

Rob Pelinka’s a beast…and not in a good way.

We will say it again. That clip of Rob Pelinka claiming he set up a meet between Kobe Bryant ans Heath Ledger after Mamba watched ‘The Dark Knight’ is beyond messed up. We all know Heath passed away before the film even came out. Don’t disrespect the dead. Can’t buy character. But can sell your integrity.

That’s who you are dealing with Lake Show.

Hollywood’s Rob Lowe would have been better.

Let’s see who you’re not dealing with anymore.

D’Angelo Russell, Julius Randle, Jordan Clarkson, Larry Nance Jr., Ivica Zubac, Thomas Bryant, Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram, Josh Hart.

Is that everyone?

What you wanted more?

All the years all the young guns with plenty more calenders left in their clips. All gone.

And they didn’t even ask for Julius Randle back as part of the trade kicker.

Come on.

But look to him staying in New Orleans now with Ball, Ingram, Hart and whoever else would have ended up in Los Angeles with that luck of the lottery fourth ball. And the Pelicans about to fly with the road to Zion looking like the closest thing to what would have been the young Lake Show for the future Mardi Gras in Crescent City.

Don’t write off NOLA it’s all about to go down smooth in the Big Easy.

But after months of speculation, social media tweets and articles I rest my case, I’ll say no more. But you know how it is.

On the bright side in sunny California…Anthony f##### Davis.

The Lakers finally have their man. And next to LeBron the most dynamic duo since Shaq and Kobe…sorry Pau. It could be Finals…it’s at least playoffs.

Now it’s time to put another great core together.

Kemba? Three Kings?

Kyrie? Kevin? Kawhi?

Cue that laugh…hey we all have dreams in Hollywood.

Free agents will be more likely to join the ‘Space Jam’ show now too, but whoever LeBronland casts like throwing up movies off your phone on to your T.V. it’s a whole new world in L.A. now the Genie (or Jeanie) has finally granted their wish.

But how about two more Aladdin? On the spirit of Robin Williams help us Will Smith!

Then that will make up for all the young princes they’ve lost for one King.

As of right now like Swiss, this team has more holes than “fashionable” hipster t-shirts on Rodeo. There’s no starting point for one. And not having Lonzo ball out on the tutoring of both legendary super sub Rajon Rondo and the fellow pure point Basketball I.Q. of new assistant coach Jason Kidd is a real shame. Like losing a pure scorer like Ingram (or *clears throat* D-Lo). Or the best role player the Lakers have ever had since the days of Horry, Fox and Fisher in Josh Hart. Not to mention whoever would have come next starting this weekend.

All for a guy who was going to come to us next Summer anyway and in these changing player power times could still walk away next season anyway.

All for nothing?

I guess the Lakers looked at Leonard winning it all with Toronto and thought it was all worth it.

But at least it’s all done. It’s over now. And for now Anthony Davis in that Glen Rice 41 is the next big man great in the legendary Laker lineage of Mikan, Wilt, Kareem, Shaq and Pau.

Just don’t Andrew Bynum or Dwight Howard this up.

Rich Paul for MVP.

That’s all folks!

The Six In 6. Toronto Become First Canadian NBA Champions

The Six In 6 Toronto Become First Canadian NBA Champions
Kawhi Not?

They the North did it.

Last night in the Bay the 6 got turned upside down with no need for a seven right now. As Drake’s really big team got some really big rings.

And with a 114-110 win in Oakland against the Golden State Warriors for Game 6 of the NBA Finals. After almost a quarter century the Toronto Raptors became the first franchise outside of the United States to win the National Basketball Association finals to make history and become Canadian champions.

And in their Canuck colours pointing to the North from California with the gold, these red and whites flying the flag in the U.S. did it for all of us as they truly changed the game.

It started with an expansion 24 years ago in Toronto. Alongside the Vancouver Grizzlies. It ended with them being the sole franchise outside of America in the NBA as former Memphis Grizzlies center Marc Gasol joined another former gritted Grizz in the form of his big brother Pau Gasol to be the first siblings in hoops history to be NBA champions.

It started with throwback cousins Vince Carter and Tracy McGrady in Dino unis, throwing it up and putting it down. Bringing the Air to the Air Canada Center. It ended like Vinsanity in the 2000 Slam Dunk Contest for a new millennium. Looking at the camera after honey dipping and putting it through the legs, telling us emphatically with cutting hand gestures, “it’s over”.

This is for him. Mac. Mighty Mouse. The Camby Man. The Junkyard Dog. Iron Man, Mo Pete. Chris Bosh.

You know it’s for DeMar DeRozan too especially.

Kyle Lowry (what more can you say with 26, 7 and 10 leading the way?). Gasol. Siakam (G-League to big league champ). VanVleet. Ibaka. Lin. And of course quite possibly now the greatest player in the world right now and Finals MVP (joining Kareem and the King as the only Most Valuable Finals Player with multiple teams), sinking that last free throw as epic as his around the world and a day buzzer beater against the Sixers in the six, Kawhi Leonard.

Nick Nurse the architect. And of course another one, James Naismith. This game was invented by Canadians, played by Canadians and like the first ever game in NBA history, this victory belongs to Canadians.

Drake. Real superfan Nav Bhatia and the Canadian coffee house company Tim Hortons raising a cup to him commercial tribute. Everyone in Jurassic Park roaring like T-Rexes for these Raptors and of course all of you. Truly bringing the buzz to basketball.

This if for the real Warriors too. Five straight finals for the first time in a half century, 50 years (love Commish Adam Silver’s lining tribute). The dynasty that is nowhere near dead as they fought to the end for their last look in the Oracle in those Town across the chest jerseys before moving from Golden State across the Golden Gate to a new era of dominance in the hilly streets of San Francisco (the next time we’ll see Toronto is in Tokyo, October for our very own NBA Japan), where that digitally developing skyline from those tram peak points is the limit. No matter who stays or goes in this Curry, Durant, Draymond and Klay juggernaut with guys like Igudola and Cousins relating too. This is for Kevin Durant (who we apologize to for every Canadian fan who cheered his injury in Game 5. Although Warrior fans cheered for an injured Kawhi back in the day too) who played to the pain as all heart he proved everyone wrong and did it all for his team. And true Warrior mode Klay Thompson who went down with a crippling injury too in this final game and came right back to the right kind of cheers. This superteam and one of the greatest in history is far from extinct.

But right now for the Toronto Raptors it’s Jurassic World and the Golden State Warriors for the last time, fallen kingdom.

And as the final horn called for the last game of the season all hands were kept high for the North who overcame all the cold to break the ice for the first championship. And the champagne no longer on ice tasted as good as these underdogs proving everyone wrong as they bit back.

I’m not crying…we’re all crying.

We the champions my friends and Canadian countrymen.
