Random Wax: 2019-2020 Hoops

2019-2020 Hoops Basketball:  The NBA All-Star game is tonight but Dame will not be in the game due to injury.  Man that stinks as he's been so good lately and Portland is trying to make a run at a playoff spot.  I really like this photo of Lillard and this card so even though I pulled a Zion in this pack we start it off with Damian.
Hoops has been good to me this year.  This is the first of my three packs that didn't have an autograph.  That's crazy good pulls.  This one still had plenty of star power even if there wasn't any ink.  
I'm not a Lonzo Ball guy but I think he looks better this year.  While his overall field goal percentage is down, his shooting from deep is up and he just looks more comfortable on the court.  We'll see if he can continue to improve.  More than anything I'm so happy his dad isn't part of the news anymore - that dude was annoying.
It's nice to see Victor Oladipo back on the court. A.D. has looked great this year.  Playing with a stud like LeBron will do that for you.  Not that A.D. wasn't already a great player.  But after LeBron suffered through injuries last season we really didn't know what this year would look like.  Now LA is the best of the West and it's hard not to see them at least in the conference championship this year.
That Cam Romeo Langford is a holo parallel even if it is next to impossible to see in the scan.  Definitely a fun pack.  There will be more of these in my future.

  1. That went well! Can’t go wrong pulling Zion this year. That Alonzo parallel is awesome.

    1. Definitely a good pack. Hoops has been good to me this year.

  2. Nice Zion! Heard the All-Star Game was really cool and exciting. I didn't watch it, but saw a few of the highlights.

    1. The first three quarters were good but the 4th quarter was awesome. I haven't seen anything like that in years from an NBA All-Star game. They played hard and barked at each foul like it was a playoff game. I really enjoyed that heck out of that. Seems like the NBA nailed it with the new format.

  3. Nice Zion! Just traded for one of those!
