    The Diss:
    Stephen Colston: How I Came to Own Nine Stromile Swift Jerseys

    When I was four, maybe five, I spent an unforgettable day with my paternal grandmother.
    Nanny had a couple large jars filled with coins, some of which were very old. Though this
    was not so much a coin collection as a random stash of pennies, I was fascinated by the
    collection’s sheer quantity. Working with a youthful enthusiasm and the perception that
    age and uniqueness automatically meant value, the potential for discovering an old coin
    different from the others kept me digging through Nanny’s pennies all morning and
    afternoon long. The coolest coin I found was a Buffalo nickel, likely from the 1930s. Its
    surface was worn to the point that it was probably worth little more than its face value
    of five cents, but that didn’t matter to me — Nanny said Buffalo nickels were special,
    and I found one. It seemed as though I had uncovered the needle in the haystack, and
    this was extremely exciting. I kept this Buffalo nickel separate from the rest of Nanny’s
    coins, effectively starting my first collection.

    Although I never became a full-blown coin collector, I’ve collected just about everything
    else. I amassed Hot Wheels, Legos, Star Wars cards and tiny ceramic turtles. I once even
    tried to collect an entire live ant colony in an aquarium, but the queen evaded my capture.
    Presently, I collect basketball things.

    I began to accumulate NBA items about ten years ago, when I was in high school, and
    have been building my collection ever since. My pace has been variable, but never have I
    sold or completely ceased to buy. When assessing prospective additions to my collection,
    I have a tendency to favor the obscure. The reasons for this are manifold.

    In my never ending pursuit of basketball nostalgia, I primarily seek that which evokes
    fond memories of the NBA of my youth, when my favorite players were the likes of
    Stromile Swift, Allen Iverson, Rasheed Wallace, Kenyon Martin, Ricky Davis, Desmond
    Mason, Jamal Crawford, Darius Miles and Quentin Richardson. From the standpoint of
    practicality, my unusual fanhood has been a wonderful coincidence. It’s why I can
    reasonably afford to collect the things I actually want to collect.

    But why, exactly, do I actually want to collect these things? Why do I experience this
    unusual impulse to own anything and everything Stromile Swift? Why, as a person who
    is otherwise inclined to save his money, am I willing to make exception for such
    incredibly impractical items? This, I feel, is much more difficult to explain than why I
    collect in general. Lots of people collect; only I collect Stromile Swift. Why do I like
    Stromile Swift?

    Even I struggled to understand why I like Stromile Swift. For this reason, I’ve often done
    my best to avoid...CONTINUE READING AT THE DISS

    I don't know why, but I was really touched by that Stromile Swift article.

    Lol.

    That's cool stuff.

    Any guesses on the reaction the Philly crowd gives Turner? I am guessing he will be met by boos because it is Philly, but he won't deserve that.

    I don't see why the fans would boo him....it wasn't like Turner asked to leave.

    Now, if Bynum played.....yeah...I could see them booing him....cuz he didn't play a single game as a Sixer while losing the Iggy and Vucevic for nothing.

    This is David West, he is the Honey Badger, West just doesn't give a *****....he's pretty bad *ss cuz he has no regard for any other Player or Team whatsoever.

    Booing Evan Turner would be like booing a really gentle public figure, like Santa Claus...

    Hopefully the Philly fans will get to see a lot of former Sixer LaVoy Allen as well. I'm banking on the 4th quarter being a lot of Sloan-Turner-Hill-Copeland-Allen.

    When G Hill is running the offense we look so slow and predictable please make him a spot up shooter again Vogel

    Sound isn't working for me, so I turned on Audio League Pass, and to my delight it matched up perfectly.
