So, it’s spring break. Me, being a kid, am going on a trip with my family. This year we went to New York City. While there, we did many things, and going to the NBA Store was one of them. On our first day in the city, we went to the Intrepid, a war boat that you have probably heard about. After that, since it was still early, we went to the NBA Store. Surprisingly enough, even though it was a store, it was not in Times Square. The store is at 5th Avenue and 45th Street in New York. It is walking distance from Times Square, but it really isn’t inside of it. Anyway, the store has two stories above ground and one storie under ground. It is a huge store, and many people come to it. On the ground level, they have the desk, escalators, stuff like that. This is where you could find a small gift, although me and my dad did see a life-sized LeBron James statue worth $10,000 dollars. Other then that, the floor was pretty cheap. The basement is probably the biggest area. The basement is the place for almost everything except for small toys and T-Shirts. The basement holds almost all of the jerseys, and all of the memorabilia. The basement had four rooms, one for greeting, one for memorabilia, one for jerseys, and one for everything else. Also, the basement held many kiosks where you could search for a player in the store or a team in the store. They had NBA and WNBA players/teams, too. You could even watch highlights on the kiosks! On the second floor, there were all of the T-Shirts and other various things. On this floor they had free Pop-A-Shot, and they also had a place to make your own personalized basketball card. This floor was reasonably small.
All in all, if you are a basketball fan and are shopping in New York, this is the place for you. I would give it a nine on a scale of one to ten, and I want to go back. It is a great store.
