There is always a lot going on in the world of basketball because of its nature. When it comes to sports there are a wide variety of variables. Players can be traded, can retire, can get injured or a variety of other things. All of these aspects can affect them on the court, some more than others, and sometimes these outside forces can cause for some personal expression.
One topic I’ve been following for a while that could make for great content, is LeBron James returning to the Lakers rotation. There have speculations to when he will returnbut it is looking as if it could be any game now. I would expect that when he does return he will have something on that will cause talking.
With the trade dead line coming up shortly players and teams are starting to scramble; and there is no player more desired this trade season than Anthony Davis. (To keep on a similar topic) This is important because the Lakers really want him, he just announced he would like to be traded and the Pelicans apparently aren’t taking his calls. In my opinion this is a time to watch what he is wearing. Jerseys are sometimes very telling as to where a player stands.
Straying away from the NBA a little bit, the NFL has heard some noise recently after an incredibly obvious blown call in the NFC Championship game. In short… it debatably cost the Saints a trip to the super bowl. Now, this is news in itself but some actions taken afterwards are what have turned heads. During this Pro Bowl week, a Saints defensive end, Cam Jordan, wore a shirt that said “Blow Whistles, Not Games” on the back and “Make Calls, Not apologies” on the front.
Back to the NBA. It was recently Greg Popovich’s birthday and that is something that needs to be acknowledged. Pop hasn’t always had the best style but I think his attitude can make up for some of the gaps. His birthday could be celebrated by looking at his fashion from way back in his early coaching days and comparing it to now.
Lastly, Derrick Rose is having the comeback season for the ages. He is showing us what he looked like when he won the MVP and was battle it out with LeBron in the east. With this season going the way it is going it wouldn’t be surprise is there is a big overhaul of his Adidas line. Although the line never really went away, this could be a good opportunity for them to hit the market hard again and expect D-Rose to be giving us the first looks.
