The World Basketball Festival in photos

I spent the last few days in New York City… mostly at Rucker Park in Harlem… at the World Basketball Festival.  I was mainly grabbing video of the various events, but I managed to pull out my cell phone and grab a few still shots here and there.   Nike put this World Basketball Festival... [More]

Your Morning Dump… Where Udonis Haslem is busted for pot

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big storyline. Because there's nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump. An FHP trooper pulled over Haslem, 30, who had been driving east in his 2008 Mercedes-Benz, after he was clocked going 78 mph in a 60 mph... [More]

So we lost the Facebook race….

Our buddies over at CelticsBlog saw that we were trying to get to 1,000 Facebook fans… and they decided "Hey, we're just about even… let's race to 1,000." Turns out that's like Usain Bolt coming up to me and saying "Hey… we're about the same height… let's race." They're at like 1,100 now.  We're around... [More]

Your Morning Dump… Where Shaq won’t get in the way

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big storyline. Because there's nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump. "Shaq's not a perimeter shooter and neither is (Kendrick Perkins)," he said Saturday from Madison Square Garden. "They're both great finishers around the rim, very efficient, shoot... [More]

Rondo drops 7 dimes on China

Rondo drops 7 dimes on China

Rajon Rondo and Team USA dominated the Chinese national team in a closed scrimmage at Madison Square Garden today.   With the Garden about 95 percent empty, it wasn’t quite the same atmosphere as when these two teams last met (opening night of the 2008 Olympics). The score was reset after each quarter, but in... [More]

Kobe Bryant was actually likable today

Kobe Bryant was actually likable today

I was all prepared to hate Kobe Bryant today.  He is fresh off beating the C's for a title (ugh, still hurts) and he made me wake up way too early to cover his event.  So I was looking forward to just flat out hating on him all morning long.  And I couldn't do it. ... [More]

Your Morning Dump… HOFers show love for the Celtics

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big storyline. Because there's nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump. I think those guys’ biggest goal is to try and win a championship and not trying to win 72 games. But if Jeff Van Gundy wants to... [More]

Video: Dwyane Wade blocking, taunting children

I was at Rucker Park today for a few different World Basketball Festival events.  Among the festivities was a clinic in the morning that featured Dwyane Wade, Chris Paul, Carmelo Anthony and Michael Jordan.  DWade apparently likes a little negative reinforcement in his basketball instruction… because he had a little fun with these kids by...

Rondo Tosses Alley-Oop To Chandler For The Win

Rondo Tosses Alley-Oop To Chandler For The Win

Team USA recently held a Blue vs. White scrimmage at Radio City Music Hall in New York City.  While it was interesting to watch them play at such a venue on stage, it was more or less a glorified all-star/street ball game.  There were barely any set plays run as it was quite the ugly... [More]
