Starter jackets, Guess t-shirts, FILA crew necks, playing backyard basketball in Reebok Pumps, listening to Puff Daddy and the Fam on a boom box - these are the things that make me smile a big fat B.U.M. Equipment smile.
We’re going back to one of my favorite times ever, when MTV played music videos and people played pogs. I’m talking about the 90s.
So throw up a finger if you feel the same way. Shout out to Mrs. Bruno.
You’re on the blacktop playing a high stakes pickup game. Sometimes you needed to air out your Pumps, just to let everyone else catch up a bit. Then BAM, you’d pump it up for game point. You’re playing win-by-two and your oppenent thinks you peaked too early.
You pump fake in the triple threat position and the entire defense goes for it. You dash towards the hoop and end on a finger roll, even though Coach C told you you’re not allowed to use a finger roll unless you can dunk. Not today Coach, NOT TODAY.
There’s not much to say other than it’s the dopest purple sweatshirt that I’ve ever seen. If you can find a cooler purple sweatshirt, text it to me and I’ll tell you that you’re wrong. Only comes in Medium.
