The Twilight Sky’s High to the Hoop

The New D Rose 4 “Chicago Nightfall”

Adidas D Rose 4

Derrick Rose is Back in action for the 2013-14 NBA Season.  He’s already given Chicago a blast of excitement with a   swishing floater with less than 6 seconds left  to beat the Knicks 82-81 on Halloween. This week he has a slight set back with a sore hamstring, but he’ll be around this season to light it up in Chicagoland.

The new Adidas D Rose 4 Sneaker’s newest colorway Rocks the City of Chicago with accents of the City.  Including the purple that represents the twilight sky soaring above Lake Michigan. Growing up in Chicago, I know this color very well, It  wasn’t quite this bright when I lived there, but it sure was a sweet combination of purplish, grey toned Black. This color is embedded in my memory bank for the rest of my life. Nice how they Adidas designed these kicks with the sky-line in mind.

Also notice the purple, white, yellow and aqua accents in the lining representing Chicago’s City Lights or as someone who grew up in Chicago, the Summer hues that allowed us to play B-Ball into the night.

If I wasn’t on my annual October 1-December 18, no new kicks/no new clothes buying Time-Out, I would consider picking up a pair of these joints. I’ll just have to see what’s brewing in NYC on December 18 and Chicago on December 23rd. I so can’t wait until my self-imposed no new kicks no new clothes Time-Out is done.  For the rest of you, the “Chicago Nightfall” drop on November 21, 2013.

The Call & The Response

D. Rose created the video: “Derrick Roses Vegneance-the Return is Near and Lebron Responded with his own video.  What fun this is! The D.Rose vid is great, shows him slamming all over the Heat. Good to see his fighting spirit is back in action. Plus I watched a Las Vegas pre season game yesterday and the Bulls had one guy who scored 31 points and another that had 22 rebounds. I’d never heard of the two newer players, but they were GOOD. Hope they make the team.  Here’s D. Roses “Vengeance Video”:

And here is Lebron’s Response Video,”The Throne”:

For the record, Streetzblog is picking the Bulls to win it all in 2014!  See you on the Streetz or at the B-Ball Park.

Check out these new Kicks from Public Enemy:

Collecting Jersey’s Like a Sneakerhead Collects Kicks!

Wow! That’s a lot of Jerseys!

 

Jerseys-streeetzblog

I gotta say I sure have way too many Kicks in my home than I really need, but I’ve never seen a Jersey Collection like this before. There’s over 60 Jersey’s in the picture above.  Fun game to play here is “What Famous Player(s) is he missing from the collection.  There’s a bunch of Jordan’s, Lots of Celtics, Hardaway’s, even Barkley. But who is he missing?  Have fun trying to figure it out.

I thought I had too many with 6 or maybe 8 of them. I know I have a couple streetzblog Jerseys in Brooklyn and Chicago style, a few Jordans, a Melo, a Lakers, and even a couple older All-Star Lebrons. What do you think of having over 60 of these?

Thanks to Lang Whitaker from the All Ball Blog on NBA.com for tipping me off to this nice picture of Reddit User Macgarnickle’s massive amount of Team Gear. Wonder what team he really cheers for?

I’m bummed that the Bulls lost and D-Rose never came back, for even 5 minutes! I guess we will never understand that big mistake. If he could play in practice, I agree with Kenny “The Jet” Smith, he should have come out for 5 or 10 minutes at least. Sheez!  Hope he still stays a Bull, after not playing something must be up? He has a lot of fans he’s going to have to win back after this bizzare train of events.

Oh, and did you see D-Wade in the game yesterday?  He had a little Band-Aid on his knee, wasn’t playing to well. Then his coach said he had to go change his Sneakers. I don’t know if he changed his kicks or not, but He came back with a BIG Ol’ Bandage on his knee that was like 2 feet long and 3 inches deep! Next thing you know he pops a 3 then flies through the air and slams it home like it was 5 years ago. Amazing what a Bandage could do!

It gets better, when asked by Craig Segar “What exactly did that bandage do for you? D-Wade gave him a HUGE smile, then said something like, “Oh, A lot of things”.  I bet, next time I feel sluggish on the courts I’m going to tell my Court-Mates that I got to go get my D-Wade Band Aid!

Have a great evening! Go Knicks!
