Modern Interpretation: You were new once too, you know. And when you couldn't shut up about the "South Beach" LeBron 8s, there was an older guy who grew up copping Air Jordans on clearance who rolled his eyes at the thought of spending $500 on a gaudy pair of basketball sneakers that weren't even a gameday colorway. But you know what? He didn't judge. Not that you know of, anyway. So embrace the next generation, no matter how odd their tastes may seem to you. And pass on what you've learned.
