Big shout out to FAT CAT!

Hands down, the Bronx has the most hostile environments in streetball. It plays that gritty Brooklyn ball where the games don’t end until the clock is over, with enough trash talk on the side to make you mad enough for your blood pressure to rise!

The Walton Morris & Creston basketball league is for real and will be a must see tournament in the summer of 2010! Don’t forget who said it first!

1/3 the champs aka SEAN BELL ALL STARS!

In New York City, we have power house teams with big time players. In order to be put in the genre of power-house teams, you need to have someone with a high-enough basketball IQ on the sideline directing your every move, someone who knows where the mismatches are and when to take advantage of them.

The coaching position is vital to a team’s success, and without a coach with a good basketball IQ, your team is as good as an anvil stuck in quick sand. So who do you think are the top five coaches in NYC and why?

COREY FLUSHES IT DOWN FOR TWO!

I just got the word from an inside source that Corey “Homicide” Williams’ contract with K1X has expired, and he is now a free agent on the prowl. The Bronx representative is currently playing in the NBL down in Australia and is fifth in the league in scoring and ninth in rebounding.

“I have nothing against K1X, and I thank them for putting me on the map. I really appreciate what they have done for me,” Williams said.

Who will be the next sneaker company to pick up on the man who was once called the EBC’s most dangerous player?

What happens to K1X from here on out? You can’t market a bunch of dunkers forever. I can’t imagine anyone wearing a pair of T Dub’s. Maybe it’s time to shell out a shoe for Ryan “Special FX” Williams. He does deserve it with the performance he put on this summer.

THE GLORY DAYS IN NEW YORK WHEN YOU COULD ACTUALLY TURN YOUR SET ON TO MSG AND IGNORE WALT CLYDE FRAIZOR AND MARV ALBERT CAUSE YOU WAS TO BUSY WATCHING THE GAME!

I just got the word that the greatest shoe AND 1 has ever released is hitting shelves Nov. 11. The company that was once endorsed by former NBA player Latrell Spreewell (before he went a wall) has been in the trenches of the sneaker game since the AND 1 mixtape tour technically died in 2006 with the split of players either playing for Ball For Life or AND 1 (I hope they didn’t think James Jones and Steve Blake could sell sneakers.)

DUCK FOR COVER! High School / Oct 26, 2009 / 5:11 pm

Nothing is worse than getting dunked on in HD.

I was Just looking through Dimemag.com, and the clip of the day is a Goodie. Some kid Named Tyler Idowu is now wanted for Airhiculer Homicide. if I'm correct, he's half way to Tijuana right now.

Earv Opong was unbelievable once upon a time. He may have had the fastest handle in NYC and maybe still does. I remember back in like 2005 he used to come and get his workout on at West 4th with us when Future, Speedy, Bodywide and a few other big names used to come down there. Read More »
