Queens, New York circa 1996 serves as the muse for our latest release, titled Love Thy City. Creative Director Ronnie Fieg seeks to instill a sense of hometown pride throughout the collection, Coach Ron Naclerio pictured.
When I was running Center Court Basketball and Sho-Shot Athletics we ran articles in Bounce Magazine which was a magazine from Coach Sean Couch and Bobbito Garcia. The magazines often carried stories of NYC Streetball since that was the foundation of the magazine. Cardozo was always one of the schools that popped up when Lincoln H.S. (Telfair, Marbury, Lance Stpehenson) was mentioned. I mean the head coach Ron Naclerio is a NYC legend and brought the world Skip To My Lou (Rafer Alston).
When I saw this layout on KITH, I thought it was too dope not to share. The “Love Thy City” collection may not feature Memphis, but the pics are ill. Check out a few more shots below and use the Source Link to see more.
