Once again, the good people over at Foot Locker saw fit to include me in a group of people way more influential than I in the name of their Week Of Greatness campaign which features some of the best sneaker releases of the year happened all in the same week. Instead of opting for the standard ‘booze & shmoose’, Foot Locker gave us the opportunity to play basketball at the newly-renovated Madison Square Garden.
Again: I was playing basketball on-court in Madison Square Garden. Didn’t get the ball much, but at least I scored & we won.
This is definitely one of those life highlights that keeps me working in this industry. So very appreciative of this opportunity.
The new MSG SkyBridge looks great and its cool to see a arena cater to the fans by providing screens in areas where pillars might obstruct view. Got the chance to talk to JR Smith for a little bit and he also was the first one I’ve seen with the orange Nike Air Python months before its release at NikeNYC on 21 Mercer.
If interested, check the post I did for The Hoop Doctors right HERE where I go more in-depth about the things I was brought out there to talk about. Enjoy looking thru some of the pictures that didn’t make the THD but I still like anyway.
