Some of you might argue this is the best time of the year for sports fans. You have the NFL Playoffs, which are always fun, as well as the Pro Bowl and the Super Bowl. The NBA is near the midway point in the season, where there are always teams desperate to makes moves and changes. (You know that’s especially true this year when two of the “best” teams, supposedly, in Oklahoma City and Cleveland, are out making moves to try to change things.) College basketball is picking up and the most hardcore fans are starting to lock down which squads they’ll be riding with once March Madness starts up. From the start of the calendar year until the first or second week in February, if you can’t get excited for sports than there is something wrong with you.
Sneakerheads should be just as excited this year. That all probably starts with the Jordan Brand‘s remastered series, which has started in January with sneakers like the “French Blue” Air Jordan VII and the “Legend Blue” Air Jordan IV. It’ll continue over the next few weeks with even more hot releases.
As far as Style Points goes, you all should know by now that it’s never about what you do but how you do it. Need a bucket at the end of the shot clock? Trevor Booker did it one better against OKC. Need to make a name for yourself as a high school football player in the offseason? Karon Keyes went above and beyond. Need to come up with the performance of a lifetime? Marshawn Lynch is ready to call in Beast Mode.
In this week’s edition of Style Points: Marshawn Lynch, Malik Monk, and Shane Victorino Show There’s More Than One Way to Stunt.
