For the Lakers fans, this is possibly the greatest start to the weekend ever, as the Lakers have successfully embarked on the Los Angeles revenge against their long-time arch-rival, the Boston Celtics. And to put a few cherries on top of what tastes like the championship title icing, Kobe Bryant was playing with magical skills sans one finger. Essentially, with the NBA finals having officially kicked off on Thursday, this side of the world has taken their minds off 2010 FIFA World Cup for a quick moment.
Basketball tales and Celtics versus Lakers rivalry aside, one of the key things to note this week includes quite a sizable preview from Nike Sportswear as we get a first look into what to expect for Fall/Holiday 2010 (nothing like a little forward planning in terms of allocating the dough), and adidas Originals had just dropped a very humorous latest installment to their “The Street Where Originality Lives” campaign that is bound to get some geek juices flowing. Also, a coverage not to be missed is Freshness’ dive into the Oakley Military division. Not sure what that is? Time to click on ahead and get a little reading done (or a little pictorial browsing).
These are not your ordinary laces. These come with a bit of sass and bite, and are now available to be conquered and tamed by the brave.

Snoop Dogg playing with a lightsaber? David Beckham getting recruited to play soccer for Jabba the Hut? Jay Burachel, Ciara, DJ Neil Armstrong and Ian Brown hanging out at the Mos Eisley Cantina bar on Tatooine filled with the shadiest villains and clientele in the universe? This really only happens on the street where originality lives.
