In an earlier post a few days ago I put up a couple pictures of Rip's arm sleeve that he wanted me to make for the 2008 NBA All-Star 3-Point Contest...well after that aired on TNT, I wanted to get the footage of it, so I called up the NBA offices and kept going back and forth with them about being able to access a copy of the contest, but they had noooo love. They said since I wasn't associated with the NBA through a sponsorship deal (basically since I wasn't giving them millions of dollars to put my logo on stuff) they weren't able to provide me with the video.
So I said forget the NBA and corporate mumble-jumple, I knew it'd surface on YouTube sometime. So I kinda forgot about it for awhile, but then somehow stumbled upon some clips of it on YouTube just now. So here it is in case you missed it or just wanted to see him wear the sleeve again. Obviously Rip definitely got robbed in it, cause EVERYONE else was steppin on the line too, but for some reason they don't have much love for Detroit or somethin...Guess we'll have to change that. *FAST-FORWARD 3-MINUTES AHEAD, AND LISTEN CLOSELY DURING RIP'S LAST RACK (ANNOUNCERS MENTION THE SLEEVE)*
