Pick up one of these archival prints by Bobby Bernethy from the DS gallery show ‘In The Paint’ at Voltage Coffee & Art in Cambridge, MA this Friday (7-9PM).
For the rest of this week all proceeds from the DS store will be going towards the victims of the Boston Marathon bombing. Pick up some art and help the people of Boston.
Heard a stat today on Jalen Rose’s podcast that I just couldn’t believe:
Magic Johnson went 0-for-32 on 3-point attempts for the entire 1982-83 season, including playoffs.
Wow, does that tell how much the skill set of today’s NBA stars have changed or what?
Two of my favorite Sports Illustrated covers — both of which I own in my collection — of a pair of basketball legends in their college days.
* Larry Bird - “College Basketball’s Secret Weapon,” Nov. 28, 1977
* Magic Johnson - “The Super Sophs,” Nov. 27, 1978
Absolutely love SI’s classic concept covers.
On Magic Johnson’s 52nd birthday, a shade under 20 years since he tested positive for HIV, a highlight clip of his memorable 1992 All-Star Game performance, in which he thwarted Isiah Thomas and Michael Jordan one-on-one in the game’s final minute, then drained a 3-pointer to end it.
Magic was named MVP in the only NBA game he played that season. He returned to the Lakers on Jan. 30 1996, coming off the bench in the first 18 games he played.
The Lakers were classless in their Game 4 loss at Dallas, according to the cue cards Magic Johnson is reading.
