Pictured here is one of Kevin Garnett's Team Signature Commander 2008 Champions, from adidas. Only 17 pairs were produced for auction to commemorate KG's first NBA championship. (He'll be wearing 'em in the season-opening tilt with the Cavaliers on October 28.). How can I get a pair, you ask? Well, you can bid, via auction, on an autographed pair of the sneaks at the Celtics team shop. Upside? The proceeds from the shoe sales go to the Boston Celtics Shamrock Foundation.
There is one other way. ESPN The Mag.com is giving away one pair. Downside? You gotta work for it.
In keeping with adidas' slogan of "Basketball as a Brotherhood," write us 100 words or less on the home court in your area: what makes it special for you? How are the guys who hoop there like a brotherhood? You can send it to us right here. Feel free to include some photos as well.
If you have a camcorder, go ahead and upload us some video (under two minutes, please) about your home court by clicking here. You don't have to upload video, but it could give you some "bonus points."
We'll sort through the entries and pick a winner. It could be you! When do you need to do this by? Glad you asked: The deadline is Monday, November 3rd at 10:00am EST.
In the interest of karma going a long way, you might want to stop by the Shamrock Foundation website and make a donation, too. It couldn't hurt.
