Want to get your hands on the game for Xbox 360 or PS3? All you have to do is answer the following question: Read More »

Remember back when it was okay to play ball for three or four hours every day? In the summer, you could wake up at 9 a.m. and hit the YMCA, or you could wait until the sun dipped behind the shadows and ball at 9 at night. It really didn’t matter. Basketball was all that mattered. Not bills. Not school. Not a job. Not cars or gas or clothes or girls or money or the future. Your entire life revolved around a 94 by 50 rectangle, a ball, a hoop and whoever else wanted to share it with you. Read More »

Contrary to what may seem real at this point, not everyone is playing NBA 2K12 nonstop, calling in sick to work or bouncing from school early. Some people really aren’t into video games.

Did it ever get any better than that? Read More »

After Philadelphia’s NBA All-Stars held it down in their home city and beat an All-Star squad that included LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony and Chris Paul, Hakim Warrick declared they were the “champs” of the summer league circuit. But I think most people had to take that with a grain of salt. The originators of all of this is Washington, D.C. and their Goodman League team. They beat the Drew League, and everyone else for most of the summer. So it was only fitting that we would get a clash of the titans. Read More »

Without a doubt, Kevin Durant was the undisputed King of the Summer this offseason. He played everywhere. And we mean everywhere. Indoors. Outdoors. Pro-Ams. Exhibition games. If Springfield was having an open run with an original leather basketball and peach baskets, we’re sure he would have been there too. So for the latest issue of Bounce, there was only one person that made sense for the cover: KD. Read More »

If you haven’t already noticed, Foot Locker has created a series of videos that really bring to life the sneaker obsession that we all feel everyday.

The basketball court has always been a place of sanctity for Bo Kimble. Growing up as a kid in the projects of North Philadelphia, Kimble used his talents to earn a way out, securing a basketball scholarship to the University of Southern California in 1985. Alongside Dobbins High School teammate and fellow Trojan Hank Gathers, Kimble decided to transfer to Loyola-Marymount, where the Lions would fight their way to the NCAA tournament each of his three years on campus. Twenty-five years later, as he stepped onto the court at Chew Playground in South Philadelphia for the Red Bull 2on2 Revolution Tournament, all eyes were yet again on Bo Kimble. Read More »
