2010: A Year in Review

For me personally, the year 2010 started off rough for many reasons. The year 2009 wasn't a great year but was a year of change and slight transition. In that year I had finally come to a point where I felt things needed to change, especially when it came to myself. Fact is, I didn't realize how much change needed to take place. December 31st, 2009 I received probably the most devastating news I've ever received. At first it didn't directly affect me but eventually this would jump start the must needed change that needed to take place in my life. The year 2009 was rough in itself but things would only get worse on the final day of the year. About a week before 2009 ended, I wrote on an index card the major things I wanted God to change about me in the year 2010. Little did I realize, God wouldn't waste any time. The year 2010 was an up and down year full of doubt, heartbreak, uncertainty, betrayal, and lost loved ones. Every struggle had a purpose and I noticed every situation was actually used as a wrecking ball to break off the many problems that had become callous parts of me entire being. I was harnessing a monster on the inside of me that was caged but often fed and as a result it grew and caused a continuous conflict within me. Years ago I caged this monster but I never killed it. For years it grew because of the times I would feed it, it gave me power and energy but always caused more problems because of the power I received. The monster had grown to the point where it was beginning to be to big for its cage. Gaining more control and causing more problems than ever, the monster needed to be slayed for good. It needed to be killed so i could obtain peace and let go of the hate, anger, and anguish that caused me so many problems. Little by little, things were being broken off of my life. The things that created a hard callous shell had become a prison and I needed to be set free. As the year was coming to a close, everything had been removed from my life but 2 things. A lost love and the monster within. I was obtaining peace and moving closer and closer to happiness but I wasn't quite there yet. Next up, the monster. To make a long story short, something happened where I was quite disgusted with I had become. I saw the monster in the mirror for what I was for the first time and I decided enough was enough. After a few weeks in seclusion, the monster was finally destroyed. Happiness is now a good friend of mine and things are changing for the better. The things that happened in the year 2010 were necessary and I'm glad the first part of my life is now behind me. It's a new day and things will forever different from here on out. 2011, here I come!!!!!! Thank you Lord for allowing me to make it this far. Please guide me and my life throughout this next year. In Jesus name I pray, Amen.

The Streetwear game gettin intense!!!!

The streetwear game is at an all time high and it seems that everybody is starting to take a crack at it, including myself. I've enjoyed various brands but I've never had a brand that represents me fully, so I decided to create my own. Some brands like DGK, Diamond Supply Co., Young and Reckless, Neff, and other brands are moving at a rapid rate and taking the game by storm right now. Alot of brands are falling in the cracks and are quiet right now. I'm thinking either they're waiting to come out strong and go nuts during the spring and summer seasons or maybe things ain't going right for them. But I feel the time to make a move is now and from watching everybody else I been taking notes watching and waiting for the right time to come strong and carve my niche. The thing that will guarantee success will be the attention to details.

I got a couple of shirts that go with this and I;m refering to anything that has been released yet. hint hint.

More NBA Players signing with Chinese footwear companies

More and more Chinese footwear companies are emerging in the U.S. Basketball market. Along with Li-Ning, Anta, and Peak footwear are sponsoring Major players in the NBA such as Shaquille O'Neal, Kevin Garnett, Shane Battier, Jose' Calderon Baron Davis, and Jason Kidd. With this new emergence of Chinese footwear in the U.S. Basketball market, which will emerge as a true competitor of Nike now that players are leaving Adidas for more lucrative deals with footwear companies such as Under Armour or these various Chinese footwear companies. My money is on Li-Ning footwear.

Li-Ning: The Future

If you're wondering who's the next in line to give shoe game powerhouse a run for their money, it's Li-Ning. Li-Ning is a Chinese footwear and Apparel company who is slowly making their way into the US footwear market. Adidas is losing its steam in the shoe wear depart and Li-Ning as well as Under Armour is paying close attention. Who will prevail? I'm almost sure it's going to be Li-Ning footwear and apparel. With there first American basketball player sponsorship of Damon Jones, no one took Li-Ning seriously but as of today Li-Ning is the shoe sponsors of Baron Davis, Jose' Calderon, Shaquille O'Neal, and The #2 pick in the 2010 draft Evan Turner. Don't sleep on these guys. Li-Ning is as big in China as Nike. I've seen there shoes and I must say that it is only a matter of time before Nike sees these guys in their rear view mirror.

Nike Air Max CB34 re-release

Seriously, do I really need to say anymore? Exactly!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Nike and Jordan must be desperate. They are re-releasing alot of she that they claimed they weren't going to release again. So much for that idea. Fact is, people are not buying new Nike shoes, just the ones that have already had so much success in new colorways etc.
