Trey Kerby of The Blowtorch searches high and low across the Internet for NBA-related goods you never knew you needed. You know, phenomenal swag. Email Ball Don't Lie any relevant products you find here.
This is my new favorite shirt of all-time, and frankly, I can't believe that I wasn't aware of its existence. And not only was I not aware of its existence, I had no idea that anybody called the holy triumvirate of Luc Longley, Bill Wennington and Will Perdue the "Bang Gang." Trust me, you would have heard about it if I did. I wonder if even Kelly Dwyer, he of the infinite basketball memory and excellent guitar chops, knows about this nickname. For it is the best nickname.
And this is the best shirt. My predilection for caricature shirts is well-documented, so to combine one of those with my favorite team, then add in my favorite position (awkward jump-shooting center) and, well, I'm just about ready to buy the controlling stock in eBay, just so I can call this shirt mine.
Yes, it's that good.
The seller knows what's up, introducing the auction with "Ladies and Gentlemen, you are bidding on perhaps the greatest Chicago Bulls shirt ever created. Perhaps the greatest vintage basketball shirt of all-time. One could even call it the greastest shirt of all time."
Yes, one could call it that, and one should call it that. Truly this shirt is worthy of that declaration.
Ball Don't Lie's Swag Rating: One giant Muggsy Bogues!
