I wonder who won...

I'm not quite sure what goes through these peoples minds when a sports franchise wins a championship. Why does it become an open invitation to cause havoc and riot in the streets? Yeah I'm sure you're happy but there are different ways to support your team and how about understanding the game first. I've seen it too many times. Go team! We won!!! MVP! etc. Did you know what it took to get to the finals? Did you know that Kobe had a terrible game? Can you even dribble a basketball? 

Yes, it's happens in every city but I can only relate to this place. It's very sad to see because win or lose it's inevitable.

The last time we had a game 7 for the NBA finals was back in 2005 and it was a match up between the San Antonio Spurs vs. the Detroit Pistons. Not to take away anything from that game but what's about to unfold tomorrow is a classic rivalry between two teams that lead the league in championships. Lakers with 15 and the Celtics 17. As a kid growing up in the 80's and being from LA, I was exposed to the madness. These two teams met in 1984 (another series going 7 games), 1985 and 1987 which the Lakers came out with two victories. In 2008 the two meet once again with the Celtics taking back the crown .

Now we await the 2010 champions.

Memory Lane

This might not seem at all interesting to most but I had an opportunity to pass by my old neighborhood in Torrance, CA. It's funny how time flies but certain things just don't change. The first picture is of our old apartment building which seemed untouched except for the half of dozen kids on their skateboards and freestyle bikes blocking the drive way. A picture of my Junior High and an all familiar intersection can be seen as well. Finally a set of pictures that I can use the vintage effect on that is well suited.

Summer comes a knockin....

Today is just a little reminder on how hot it get's out here. This calls out for a cripy pair of white kicks.

Rock Candy

I completed a few projects over the weekend.

First is an Air Max 90 premium that Nike has once again managed to cut corners and leave out a few details that makes this model stand out. The base shoe is completely Gray which to me is fine but leaving the mid sole an entire color just irks me. So I decided to do a little cement splatter and lace switch. What do you think?

Next up is some work I did for my boy Cris. Just a little teaser shot but I'm sure if you check here in a couple of day you will see the final product.
