“Whether it’s dimes, boards or D, they get it done with great beards, there’s no doubt they will be giving speeches in Springfield someday.” — Million Dollar Ballers owner Greg Beers
If you’ve been reading TSFJ long enough, then you’ll recognize the name Greg Beers and the brand Million Dollar Ballers. For the last two years, MDB has continued to produce high-quality tees that pay homage to the legends that we hold dear from yesteryear, but really there’s more to it then that. You see, when working with dope people you tend to become creative and focused in the process. For that reason alone, I’ll continue to support Greg and MDB.

Moreover, just look at those shirts up above. Three dope hoopers who all rock three glorious beards? How can you not appreciate that?
Kevin Love, James Harden and Paul George are three young guns who are leading the new generation of superstars in the NBA. They’re the reason why we watch the Minnesota Timberwolves on NBA League Pass all the time. They’re the reason why we actually like Dwight Howard again (kinda…okay, not really, but still). They’re the reason why we think Indiana vs. Miami in the Eastern Conference Finals could turn into one of the epic Eastern Conference Finals matchups in NBA history.
But really, it’s always about the #FearTheBeard movement, and if you don’t have a beard, then you just wouldn’t understand.
