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.
Earlier this week, someone found my senior picture and posted it online. I was pretty upset that someone finally found photographic evidence of my truly unfortunate hoodrat phase — I was listening to a lot of Big Tymers back then — but then I realized I should find my NBA jeans again. My mom gleefully informed me that she'd burned them the day I left for college. Thankfully, eBay exists.
Let me tell you, if you ever want NBA jeans, eBay will not disappoint. There's some ugly ones. There's some player specific ones. There's a jacket. There's a matching jacket and pants. Don't worry, there's stuff for the ladies too. Even a dress. Really.
And then there's these Stephon Marbury jeans.
Why wouldn't there be Stephon Marbury(notes) jeans? If there were ever an NBA player to have jeans with his face and career highlights printed on a pair of jeans, it would be Stephon Marbury. And since it's Stephon Marbury you get the whole experience. Matching t-shirt, fake earrings, the No. 3 even though he now wears No. 8. You know, the hits.
This fantastic outfit is from overseas (duh), so you're going to have to pay a little extra for that luxury. It's totally worth it. Just think of how great all those Pearl Jam imports were back in the day. This is totally, completely like that because in no way will you ever regret wearing Stephon Marbury's face on your legs and chest.
