Other than this humongous Lakers banner outside of Staples Center, there’s been a lot of exment in the air to get this year’s NBA Finals on its way. To add to it, Undefeated LA will be releasing some merch in support of the Lakers’ quest for their 15th NBA Championship. Though it sucks that the release won’t be till this upcoming Saturday, June 6th, its still in time for the second home game on Sunday, June 7th.
This was simply amazing. The shot would definitely be up there with other legends of the game. Here is LBJ’s game-winning shot versus the Orlando Magics during literally the last second of Game 2.1
Daaamn—check out that torque! A turn-around, fade-away 3‑pointer a couple of feet away from the 3‑point line… Beast.

Did you see that fight this past Saturday night? That was some crazy carnage coming from a dude who smiles right before he’s about to enter the ring and fight someone who is bad ass at the weight they’re fighting in. I’m talking about the Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao vs. Ricky “Hitman” Hatton fight. I think it was dubbed “The Battle of East and West”. Don’t know if that’s important or not, but these two are great fighters to each in their own right.
Anyways, I watched the fight at a friend’s Bachelor’s Party down in SoCal. I was nervous right to the first punch. Then Pacman started setting up his combos. Next thing you know, he chalks up two knock-downs in the first round.
“WTF?!?! I didn’t know it was going to be this damn exciting, and fast”. I said to myself. So I quickly grabbed my point-and-shoot camera, sneaked it in on a place below the TV, and set it on to record video… hoping to get a candid of everyone’s reaction to the rest of the fight.
Lo and behold—it turned out to be a rewarding, stupendous and hilarious idea. They totally were busy celebrating the first round, and didn’t notice it at all. Funny-ass-hell.
Anyways, I hope you like it!
PS. Turn “HQ” on, as well as “Annotations” if you haven’t yet =)
A decade before Rosa Parks and the Montgomery bus boycott, two decades before Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. proclaimed “I Have a Dream,” a signature event in the struggle for racial equality unfolded far from Dixie.
On the afternoon of April 15, 1947, Jackie Robinson emerged as an inspiring figure in the civil rights movement when he became the first black man to play major league baseball in the 20th century, making his debut with the Brooklyn Dodgers against the Boston Braves at Ebbets Field.
Robinson’s triumphs in the face of bigotry evoked a sense of pride among black people and forced the rest of America to consider anew the doctrine of white supremacy.
I know it might be a couple of days late for this post but Jordans are classic and timeless. Below are photos of the general drop Jordan 2009s (white/black), which will be making their debut during All-Star weekend in February 14th.
