Oh boy. These two dudes may just be the very definition of our entire “90s Flavor” series. Here’s a couple reasons why: 1. Both had the swagger of a million billion trillion. They played in MSG (aka the world’s biggest stage) and didn’t take nuthin’ from nobody. They had what made that Knicks squad so [...]
OK, so maybe he wasn’t everyone’s favorite player. But Reggie didn’t give a rat’s ass if you liked him or not. He was all about winning – nothing else. The Pacers drafted him in 11th place out of UCLA in 1987 – and never regretted it even for a second. Killer Miller was the ultimate [...]
Remember the electrifying sensation of watching Latrell Sprewell on the break? Flying braids. Lanky arms. Incredible hops. This dude had enormous horse-power and was a vicious airborne finisher. The Warriors made one of the franchise’s cleverest moves by stealing Spree (University of Alabama) in 24th place at the 1992 draft. He quickly established himself as [...]
Yeah ok, so he has a slight resemblance to a very famous extra terrestrial. So what? Sam Cassel was the quintessential winner. Never afraid to lead. Always ready to take the final shot (usually a tricky but sweet midrange jumper). And one of those rare crunch-time killers. Cassel was slept-on in the 1993 draft and [...]
Once upon a time, Shawn Kemp was the meanest and most spectacular player on the planet. His eye-popping ups and ruthless authority put the art of dunking onto a whole new level. He ruled the NBA Top 10 Plays of the Week like a monarchy, also thanks to his partner in crime, Gary Payton, who [...]
You can’t teach heart. Nobody epitomizes K1X’s philosophy like Muggsy Bogues – easily one of the most recognizable personalities in the Golden Era of basketball. Born and raised in Baltimore, he beat the odds and lead a sensational Dunbar High School squad (feat. four future NBA players) to national fame before joining Wake Forest and [...]
Dennis the Menace was a uniqiue physical specimen with a very unique approch to the game. Rebound, rebound, rebound, get in the opponents head, take shoes off, rebound, date celebrities, rebound, wear tight shorts, give weird interviews, break into the Bulls gym, rebound, win championships, and most notably, rebound. Helluva dude.

The Pack consists of three lifestyle silhouettes, each one representing the look of one decade respectively: the models are called the “80s”, the “90s” and the “Y2G”. Each decade (a.k.a. shoe) is characterized by key elements [...]
