Always dressed to impressed, Phil doesn't have to look happy to look good.

Always dressed to impress, Phil doesn't have to look happy to look good.

Why so serious? Cheer up man, it’s your 64th birthday. Don’t be a sourpuss about getting old like your boy Michael Jordan. At least your still pulling in championships.

Straight outta Deer Lodge, Montana son!

Rocksoft has already professed its love for Phil Jackson, but the dude deserves recognition on his 64th. So blaze one up Phil, you got as many rings as you do fingers. Be proud.

Despite the Laker logo that’s still noticeable on Kobe’s shorts, these images still cause thousands to lose sleep at night.

Do You Believe in Magic?

Posted in News, Sports, Throwback Thursdays with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on June 4, 2009 by Enrique Enfuego

magic johnsonYour name might be the Magic, but the real Magic resides in Los Angeles.

Tonight the NBA Finals begin and the Lakers face an unlikely, yet formidable, opponent in the Orlando Magic.

The two franchises are most commonly linked by the fact the Shaquille O’Neal played for both teams. Another link being Orlando’s team name and the name of the greatest Laker of all time. But this association is the first that comes to most people’s minds…

Bobcats Magic BasketballThe Lakers’ 12th man vs. the Magic’s most unreliable 3-point shooter immortalized by this moment of athletic intimacy.

Not only do the Lakers have the Magic on their side, they got Adam Morrison.

Things are looking up.

So Cool He Had Ice In His Veins

Posted in Sports, Throwback Thursdays with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 7, 2009 by Enrique Enfuego

gervinA little something is missing from Round 2 of the NBA Western Conference playoffs. I don’t miss it that much to be honest, but Spurs-Lakers was just something we have all come to expect in the month of May.

In memory of the franchise from San Antonio, originally the Dallas Chaparrals, Throwback Thursdays is featuring the best Spur to ever hit the hardwood, 9-time NBA All-Star George “Iceman” Gervin.

One cool cat he was. It definitely helps to be sporting silver and black too. You cannot go wrong with that color scheme.

Did you know Iceman played a season in Chicago with the Bulls? So odd.

Gervin has impacted many other NBA players, such as Gary Payton, who idolized Iceman as a kid. Word on the street is when The Glove was asked to explain what he liked so much about Gervin, Payton responded, “he’s just so saucy.”

For more of Payton’s eloquence you can tune in to NBA TV for some of the more entertaining NBA commentary around. For more coverage of throwback uniforms from the various sports leagues, you can navigate your browser to Rocksoft every Thursday.

Having A Laugh At Swine Flu

Posted in Events, News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 30, 2009 by Production Team

No matter what you choose to call it, a lot of people seem to be upset about this thing.

Well, personally I couldn’t be less concerned about it, not until contracting and dying of it becomes more likely than making an NBA roster. So for now let’s have a laugh shall we? This post is dedicated to all those shaking in their space boots about the flu.

See that? Even the cute little piggy has a sense of humor about it – you sneaky devil!

Now if that isn’t the cutest thing… two swine flu victims showing that they won’t let it come between them!

Awwwwwwwwwwww look, they’re tasting each other!!

Double awwwwww

A couple extras: play a game where you ARE the flu attacking the human race; and read a phunnyz chat convo about the flu between two jolly blokes.

See? It ain’t so bad. More like a trend than a flu!

The Original Superman

On Tuesday night Orlando Magic center Dwight Howard lost his cool and threw an elbow, earning him a one game suspension. He will be sorely missed when his teammates try to finish off the Sixers tonight in Philly. This situation got me thinking a few things…

Shaq looked good in a pinstriped Magic uni, but especially in black.
Jerseys nowadays are just too form-fitted.
Why hasn’t more been made of Dwight Howard’s hijacking of the Superman nickname?
Dude can fly, but Shaq was untouchable in his prime.
At least when Shaq lost his cool, he had enough sense to whiff…hard.

Let’s talk real throwbacks for a moment…

POD007877012Whereas the Orlando Magic have only been around for 20 years, their playoff opponents, the Philadelphia 76ers, are the oldest franchise in the NBA. This picture just does it for me. Wilt and Bill, two of the all time greats going at it, clean unis, color photo, long socks and short shorts. The NBA doesn’t get much better than this.

Once again we have a case of a relocated franchise. Even the Sixers are not originally from the city in which they currently reside.

"We talking about practice."

You guessed it. The Syracuse Nationals were the original team name and location for the Sixers.

Iverson held it down in Philly for good while, sporting all types of looks, but this is a favorite…

nba_g_jordan_iverson_580Jordan is stealing show in the battle of 90s uniforms here. I gotta say, there is something about pinstripes on the dark uniforms, more teams need to try it.

That should do it for Round 1. Throwback Thursdays will return next week for some Round 2 action.

Clyde vs. The Glide

VS.

clyde-drexler

The Blazers and Rockets square off in Game 3 of their first round series on Friday night.

Both teams were lucky enough to have Clyde “The Glide” Drexler on their rosters at some point.

You already know my appreciation for a certain style Rockets uniform, but the Blazers had their share of dope unis too.

Just remember, it’s not always pretty.

Here’s a quick refresher as to why they called Clyde “The Glide”…
