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).

This is perhaps the best evidence that Youtube has not only revolutionized the way we consume media but has also pushed more people to be creative. Never thought that building a printer out of Lego with little Lego man would be feasible? Here we can prove you wrong.
