I don't know if you guys are into sports, I am not really. However, I make an exception for basketball. When I was younger I used to play basketball regularly after school and I loved it - It was so much fun! But that's not all it represents for me: as an American TV fan, and an obsessive observer of the quintessential American way of life, I can't help but take a liking to basketball. It represents everything I imagine life in America to be. More specifically the all-American high-school dream. You see, I am getting excited by today's topic and I digress... Today isn't about a sociological dissection of the great American dream, it is about the NBA All Stars game that is taking place this weekend... And the fact that a lot of super cool and amazing NBA players are currently going about their business carrying MCM bags, including two champs who will be in the All Stars team this weekend.
Let me introduce you to today's heroes:
Kevin Durant and his white Stark Backpack
