COURTSIDE

“The evolution of the Hollywood seat began in 2007, when the NBA allowed teams to shrink the size of their scorer’s table to boost the number of revenue-generating seats…

In New York, the Knicks have 145 floor seats priced from $2,850 to $3,600 per seat per game, or between $122,550 and $154,800 for a typical full regular-season schedule at Madison Square Garden. All are sold out and the majority of floor-seat ticket holders are individual ticket holders. Yes, Lee owns his seats.”

MJ VALENTINE

Nothing says love like these deadstock Michael Jordan valentines, whether he’s dunking through the stratosphere or standing in front of a dead tree. Circa early 90s, when cool was king.

SIGGI EGGERTSSON QUILT

Siggi Eggertsson‘s “Childhood Quilt” is the jam. It was his graduation project for the Iceland Academy of Arts in 2006, and was featured in Athletes, a Barcelona solo exhibition circa 2007. The quilt is based on his childhood memories, and is made out of 10,000 pieces.

I’m feeling the object itself, which is probably the most badass quilt ever. But what I dig even more is the idea that we live in a world where a basketball player in Chicago made a such dominating impression on a little kid 3,000 miles away in a small town on the Northern coast of Iceland. That’s why this is my 4th of July post. GO AMERICAN CULTURE!


thanks Olivia!

JORDAN BLOWS IT, 1992

With Chicago leading, 48-39, with 4 minutes 30 seconds left in the first half, Jordan missed an uncontested breakaway dunk slamming the ball hard off the back rim. The crowd roard for more than a minute, and the energy in the building seemed to transfer to the Knicks. New York ended the first half with an 11-3 run, closing to 51-50 after Chicago had built a 13-point first-quarter lead.

Summertime ball in Trieste, Italy, land of weak backboards. Before Jordan could beat the Celtics, he still came correct. Notice that he is the only dude on the court without socks up to his knees.



WATCHING MICHAEL JORDAN DUNK, 1988
 Jordan’s 1988 foul-line dunk dunk has been made into such a ubiquitous image, that it’s hard to think of it as an actual moment in time. The expressions of the audience rekindle the reality of that moment for me: open mouths, elation and disbelief, and cynics cracking smiles.
