I admit that I’ve just jumped on the Jeremy Lin bandwagon. I’ve seen the highlights and I have even sat through a game and watched him play. He is the truth. The only question now is whether or not he can play alongside Melo. We will see. Jeremy Lin is primed to become the first ever bonafide Asian-American NBA superstar. You’ve got my support, buddy.
Our Friend Ha Mai, founder and creator of Fur Face Boy, has got to be one of the MOST passionate people that I know. When he loves something, he really loves it. And let me tell you, he fucking loves the Dallas Mavericks.
“F YEA!!! After SO many years of agony, torment and waiting –the 3 J’s, Terry Davis, Roy Tarpley, Doug Smtih, Lorenzo Williams, Popeye Jones, Toni Braxton, Jim Cleamons, Ross Perot Jr., Frank Zaccanelli, Cherokee Parks, Chris Anstey, Chris Gatling, Samaki Walker, Shawn Bradley, Gary Trent, Robert Pack, Dennis Rodman, Erick Strickland, Howard Eisley, Calvin Booth, Don Nelson, Avery Johnson, the Big 3, the Golden Nuggets, the one game only pewter jerseys, the Antwins, the ’06 Finals, the Golden State debacle, player after player, let down after let down, meltdown after meltdown –MY Dallas Mavericks put the beat down on the Evil Empire to FINALLY win an NBA Championship! And to celebrate MY Mavs winning it all, the FUR FACE DIGGLER is back, only this time…..as a CHAMPION!” -The Fur Face Boy, Ha Mai
The FUR FACE DIGGLER (Champion Edition) tee will be available through PRE-ORDER ONLY until Wednesday, June 15 at 11:59pm (CST), so be sure to secure this LIMITED-TIME tee today before time runs out! Shirts are scheduled to ship out to YOU on Saturday, June 18th.
PS: If you love this Fur Face Boy T-Shirt then you’ll LOVE an upcoming post that I’ve got planned. You see, while I was in the academic jungles preparing for my Dissertation Defense, Fur FaceBoy sent me a box. In that Fur Face Box was a treasure trove of Fur Face Boy T-Shirts. I haven’t forgotten about that box and I am excited to share with all of you the contents! To be continued…
Well, sort of. Actually, the premature and incorrect congratulations came from Macy’s, who, unfortunately ran an ad prematurely notifying Miami Herald readers that Heat Championship T-Shirts were now available for sale at Miami Macy’s locations. Hah! That’s pretty funny considering that 1. the Heat didn’t win the 2011 NBA championship, and 2. the Heat didn’t win the 2011 NBA championship.
I have to say that I did watch the Finals with a close eye and am very happy that the Dallas Mavericks finally won an NBA championship. I’m happy for Dirk Nowitzki and I am happy for Jason Kidd, two players that I have been following for a very long time. In fact, throughout the playoffs, I was reppin’ a vintage Kidd replica jersey circa 1994. It’s about damn time that the both of the won some hardware.
By the way, if you’re interested in picking up an official Dallas Mavericks 2011 NBA Championship T-Shirt, you can grab one now at the NBA Store.
With that said, in 2012 it will be all about one red Rose and the Chicago Bulls.
It’s no secret that the New Jersey Nets will be moving to Brooklyn, New York in 2012. However, I assumed that they would take their longtime moniker with them and become the Brooklyn Nets. It looks like this may not be the case. Two lawyers representing the Nets have trademarked the name “Brooklyn New Yorkers”, along with three possible logos.
Tauntr, the popular insult blog, decided to take have a go at the New Yorkers logo. Not only did they incorporate the Brooklyn Bridge into the logo, but they also squeezed in half a hipster. They say that Brooklyn is the hipster capital of the world and so it’s only appropriate that a V-Neck wearing, PBR drinking, thick-glasses wearing, hipster with ironic facial hair would grace the New Yorkers logo.
I’ve never been a big Lebron james fan. in fact, I’ve plain out booed him on many occasions. However, I am a Dwyane Wade fan and I have been since he first came into the league. So now I am left with the problem of cheering for Lebron simply because he now plays for the Heat. Oh well, we’ll see how this season goes because anything less than a championship will be a disappointment in South Beach. Thank goodness I don’t live in Cleveland. LeBroke is available now from Skreened for $26.99. Via In My Short Sleeve.

The Boston Celtics has had their share of great players. Bob Cousy, Bill Russell, K.C. Jones, Dave Cowens, Kevin McHale and Paul Pierce. Despite all of these big named players, none compares (to me at least) to Larry Legend, the Hick From French Lick. In 1979,Â Larry Joe Bird signed a five-year contract with the C’s, becoming the highest paid rookie in the history of basketball. But he took it all in stride, saying, “No matter how good I am, I’m still just a hick from French Lick.” Bird went on to win three NBA championships and three MPV awards. He was also a twelve time All Star and nine time All NBA selection.
The only ones that will bleed tears of defeat in this years NBA Finals are the Los Angeles Lakers. Having said that, all of you Laker fans might be interested in this recently reprinted tee from Los Angeles based clothing company, Bloodbath. Los Angelino features the familiar Lakers insignia and the classic LA gold and purple.
The Phoenix Suns had a chance. They blew it. And like so many times before, the 2010 NBA Finals will be a matchup between the Los Angeles Lakers and the Boston Celtics. This will be the 12th time that the two teams will have met in the Finals since first meeting in 1959. In the NBA, the idea of East vs. West is the Boston Celtics vs. the Los Angeles Lakers, and Homage Clothing knows this. Their vintage East Vs. West design feature the colors of the two most decorated and storied teams in NBA history.
If you guys haven’t had the chance to check out IMU The Inside Out then I highly recommend that you jump on over and see what they have to offer. IMU is the brainchild of former University of Michigan basketball team captain, David Merritt. Prior to making the team, David had his share of challenges.
“It wasnâ€™t so easy. Despite my hard work, I didnâ€™t make the cut â€“ two years in a row. But the more work I put in, the harder it was to surrender. So I gave it another shot. And on my third try, I made the team. Two years later I was named co-captain. That same year we went to the NCAA tournament for the first time in eleven years.”
IMU was born from a text message that David received on the road while playing a game at the famed Madison Square Garden in New York City. The text read IMU, which he interpreted as meaning “I Miss You.” Since then, David was inspired to bring those three little words to life and he has done that through his clothing line IMU The Inside Out.
The IMU line reflects David’s drive to succeed. Their tees are bright, fun and youthful but with edge.
Tees from the first season of the IMU line were priced between $30 and $38 but from now until February 15 you can grab these shirts at just $15. IMU also released some new plaid inspired tees just in time for Valentine’s Day and these are priced at $25.
