What can I say about my big bro, Bobbitoooo!! Super proud for all his success & achievements throughout his career.  But I’m even more proud that he chooses to rock one of our BBJ Crew Necks in this video with Puma… Man, I appreciate you Bob more than you ever know… #salute #respect #tripleOG

Check out his upcoming documentary titled: Rock Rubber 45’s (click on the link to see the schedule of all the screenings worldwide).  Los Angeles screening on July 7th at the Regent Theater.  Tickets on sale now at Footlong Development.

Both the PUMA Suede and Bobbito made moves on the court, in the streets and at the clubs. Both created a legacy to last #ForAllTime. So together PUMA and Bobbito collaborated on a 50th anniversary special design for the OGs.  Source: Bobbito Garcia / Puma


Here at BBall Junkies we love to create dope shit and inspire others!  So we linked up with our homies at The Workroom LA to produce this video.  Reflecting on what it means to be a BBall Junkie!  Being out late at night, shooting til the lights go out.  Working on your game to be better than you were yesterday.  Being caught in the moment where you can just let yourself go!  When it’s just you and the ball…there are no worries!

Huge shout out to Mike and Ryan at The Workroom LA for producing this short video.  Props to my man Drew for bustin his ass during the shoot…look at the smoke comin’ off his dome, LOL!!  By the way this is just a teaser so stay posted on the next one…it’s coming!

We recently collaborated with the team from LEATHER HEAD SPORTS™ to create a custom Naismith Style Basketball with our BBJ Crossover Logo.
 This tan leather basketball was designed to replicate the original style lace-up basketball that was used in the sport’s formative years.
 Each ball is constructed of eight leather panels, and a tough rubber bladder. This ball is designed primarily for display, and not intended for the rigors of competitive play. Like any basketball, it can be dribbled and shot.
 It is made from top quality, American tanned leather. Check out the photos of the team manufacturing our ball at the Leather Head Sports Headquarters. The basketball is available exclusively for purchase on our website. Photo Credit: Jessy Giordano / Source: Leather Head Sports.
