Putting The Association on Notice

"I'm like the Phoenix Bird...I'm kind of reincarnating myself. I'm looking forward to being in Vegas on All-Star weekend and playing on Sunday."

Not to distract from The Phoenix himself, but this made my morning:
(from http://www.nydailynews.com/front/story/451480p-379875c.html)

"New neighbors of Kareem Abdul-Jabbar were crying foul yesterday after the NBA great apparently dumped a huge pile of trash - complete with a pair of old size-17 sneakers - in the front yard of a home next-door to his Harlem brownstone.

"It would not matter if it was the Queen of England," raged neighbor Gisele Allard, 58. "Most people are not abusive like that."

The sneakers, a Los Angeles Lakers ID card and a front row ticket for last spring's NCAA basketball championship game were buried amid the pile of flattened boxes dumped in Allard's front yard.

There was also a Dear Kareem postcard from a masseuse, a blow gun and an empty cardboard box for a martial arts kendo sword."

First it was The Jacket, now it's a Kendo sword and a blow gun.

I'll get called for being superficial here, but aren't ties supposed to go below your sternum? The dress code has not made the league safer for Americans.

That outfit is righteous.

"If you can't respect that, your whole perspective is wack."

or something like that.

Ties go where you like em, if you can pull it off, which Amare does in this case. I'm not sure how I feel about his white shoes, and the pants look to be bit big in the waist (creating the bulge in the crotch), but the tie is fine. Check some Dior Homme fashion shoots if you wanna see some truly extreme tie aesthetics.

A: down in front
B: crotch bulge is right
C: My father had to have someone tie his too, and they usually looked that bad.

I'm standing by my opinion on this one. No balance here. Drop the jacket, roll up the sleeves, and undo the top button. Although I guess he's not allowed to lose the jacket, which was part of my point. And though I'm by no means a fashion fundamentalist, I also know that the styles in fashion shoots are built to last as long as Jaguars and cherry blossoms.

Changing gears (dodging the argument?): ?uestlove appears for about 0.001 seconds in the MNF theme song. He's just too fierce.

How is the tie not below his sternum?

I was looking through some old photo galleries from All Star Games past and it was kind of a shock to see players in throwback jerseys etc. It definitely makes the pictures look like they're from an era long since past.

As a public service I'm including the link to the complete video of Charles Barkley's induction speech to the Hall of Fame from last Friday. I found it to be a very compelling 14 minutes of near-required viewing.


And here's the RSS feed to the NBA Broadband page, always has good stuff:


And lastly, this photo of AK and Melo sharing a quiet moment:

AK looks like he just dropped an e-bomb, in a european way.
