After the Paulie Malignaggi-Amir Khan presser ended Ã¢â‚¬â€œ more on that tomorrow Ã¢â‚¬â€œ the weather in the City was too nice not to walk around a bit, so I stopped over at the NBA Store on Fifth Avenue for a little while. I like to see what initiatives theyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re pushing, to stay on the pulse of a sport I like, and also to check out some of the more ridiculous items.
Also, you never know who youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll find there Ã¢â‚¬â€œ IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve run into Freddy Prinze sidekick Matthew Lillard and failed St. JohnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s coach Mike Jarvis, to name a couple. HereÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s a pictorial look at what I found Ã¢â‚¬â€œ or at least, what I found before employees came by and glared me out the door.
Note Ã¢â‚¬â€œ If you want musical accompaniment to get the vibe of being at the store, hit play on that dreadful Kesha song after the jump. I think itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s appalling, but lamentably, thatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s what was playing when I was there. Brush her teeth with a bottle of Jack, indeed.
