The Miami Heat are your 2011-2012 NBA champions! Is it the beginning of a dynasty?!
When the Heat's "Big 3" came together two years ago, there was a lot of negativity. Most of the hate was centered on LeBron and The Decision. Obviously that wasn't the best way to announce that you're leaving a team, but it looks like LeBron made the right choice. Who wouldn't want to go live on South Beach and hang out with your best friends? And the Big 3 took less money to join together, which a lot of people seem to forget.
It looks like the era of the Big 3 is back. Garnett/Pierce/Allen ushered it in a few years ago. Now there are Big 3s across the league. The Thunder have Durant, Westbrook, and Harden. The Spurs have Duncan, Ginobli, and Parker. The Lakers have Kobe, Bynum, and Gasol. The Knicks have Carmello, Amare, and Chandler. In this league you need superstars to win championships. The Heat understood that and delivered.
Anyway, LeBron finally has that chip off his shoulder. He got his first ring. How many more are to come? A couple more? 5 more? Only time will tell. But we are all witnessing a once-in-a-lifetime talent, and we should appreciate it.

At our company we have done thousands and thousands of jackets over the last several decades. Most of our jackets are customized with unique jacket back designs and patches. Many of these designs are things that we created ourselves, while many more are user-submitted and we convert them and embroider them on the jackets. We decided to highlight some of our favorite designs that people put on their varsity jackets. Keep in mind that you can alter any and all aspects of these designs for your own jacket!

For those of you who watched the 2012 NBA All-Star festivities, it was a great weekend. On Friday, Kyrie Irving showed everyone why he was the first pick in the draft. He was 8-8 on three pointers and led his team to victory. The celebrity game was a little boring as always...
Saturday night was entertaining with the 3-point shootout and the Slam Dunk contest. The 3-point shootout came down to Kevin Love and Kevin Durant. After multiple shootout tiebreakers, Kevin Love emerged as the victor.
The Slam Dunk contest was, in our opinion, below average. Blake Griffin put on a show last year. But this year it was forgettable. Something needs to change here. The NBA or Sprite needs to figure out a way to incentivize the stars to participate. Maybe put up a million dollar prize! That would surely attract people like LeBron James, Russell Westbrook, Derrick Rose, and Blake Griffin to participate year after year. What do you think?
Sunday was the day of the All-Star game. There were plenty of highlight dunks in that game, led by LeBron. But the West team was comfortably in the lead for most of the game. Then the East decided to play hard in the fourth quarter and it got exciting. But in the end, the West won 152-149. Kevin Durant scored 36 points and took home the MVP. LeBron had 36 and Dwyane Wade had 24-10-10 for the East.

The top two college football teams in the nation faced off tonight with the #1 ranked LSU Tigers coming out victorious. It was definitely a battle of great defenses. In the end, LSU just made more plays. The Alabama kicker must be kicking himself right now after missing several field goal attempts that would have won the game for the Crimson Tide. Too bad we won't be able to see these two teams face off again in the college football playoffs. Either way, congrats to the players on both teams - it was a great game.
