With the Holiday season in full effect, and Christmas less than two weeks away, it seemed only right to drop a gift list and a giveaway for our faithful Bounce Mag followers.
I always have trouble figuring out what to give people, but my dude Mel Peralta from FLüD Watches is in the spirit and will be giving some dope gifts to a few fans. I caught up with Mel to discuss hoops, the company and his ties to the streetball scene: Read More »
“One day I just started doin’ me. I just started scoring a lot, I guess.”-Michael Beasley, Gunnin’ For That #1 Spot Some people are put on this planet to do one thing. For instance, I think Jaleel White was put on the planet to planet to give nerdy brothers higher self-esteem by playing Steve Urkel; Marv Albert graces the green Earth to scream adverbs and adjectives at you through the T.V. screen and Pamela Anderson, umm, was put here to join PETA in the fight against fur. Michael Beasley, Minnesota’s new leader of the Wolf pack, was simply born to score. A lot.
Above The Rim Re-Launches with Martell Webster ATR, Apparel, Articles, Community, Events, High School, Interview, News, Sneakers, The Latest, feature / Nov 4, 2010 / 7:19 pm
It’s 8 o’clock on the Thursday night before Halloween in midtown Manhattan. My older brother Rell is with me to hit the re-launch party for the sneaker brand, ATR (Above the Rim). As we make our way up and down 68th street, a man dressed in a Johnny Cash-esque all black suit stops me and asks, “hey, are you looking for the ATR party?”
“Yeah, is this the place?” Read More »

ADIDAS FALL SHOWROOM: FAST IS THE NEW BLACK. Adidas, Apparel, Clothing, Interview, Ncaa, Sneakers, The Latest, nba / Oct 23, 2010 / 1:58 pm
As an LES resident, I take tons of trips through SoHo and the first thing I notice whenever I’m there? The giant billboard with Zoe Saldana, for Calvin Klein. But once my tongue rolls back into my head and my transformation back to Lower East Scribe from the wolf in those Droopy Dog Cartoons finishes, the second thing I peep is the giant Adidas store front. Whenever I look in the window, there’s something different. One week it’s women’s hoops apparel, then it’s distance running, then it’s cross training. The one constant with them is change.
World Basketball Festival: The Cutting Room Floor Around The World:, Articles, Community, Events, Highlights, Hoops Culture, Interview, Rucker, The Latest / Oct 6, 2010 / 10:58 pm
The next issue of Bounce Mag currently being chopped and screwed will feature our take on the NYC Nike Tournament of Champions and the Boost Mobile Elite 24 game in Venice Beach. But with the first ever World Basketball Festival making its home here in the city, we had to be heavy in the streets that weekend to cover it will definitely be highlighted with pics, players and the overall unprecedented level of illness that took over the NYC hoops scene for a little over four days. Like any other great production, some things just didn’t quite make it to the finished product and ended up here on the site like the extra credits portion of your favorite DVD.
I got the chance to kick it with Renaldo Balkman at the WBF where we spoke about his heritage, his adjustment to ballin’ with his Boricua brethren and other goodies like that.
2010 NIKE TOC: CHAMPIONSHIP ROAD NOW RUNS THROUGH ORCHARD BEACH Articles, Best of Playground, Events, Highlights, Hoops Culture, Hoops In The Sun, News, Nike, The Latest, feature / Aug 28, 2010 / 10:15 pm
The 2010 Nike Tournament of Champions was about one thing – Namesake. I had a convo with Corey “Homicide” Williams a few weeks before the game and he told me two important things about the city game. “It takes a long time to build a name but only a second to lose it,” Homicide said. Makes sense.
Watching a player kill summer after summer only adds to their legacy. It’s why players like the newly retired John “Franchise” Strickland, the master of post finishing for several years in New York City, are so revered in playground basketball – he owned the game in his prime and now in its 4th year, the Nike T.O.C. can bite that rep and now be called “The Franchise” of NYC tournament ball.

The BBQ shish kabobs weren’t the only hot items uptown last night, Aaron “The Problem” Williams went to work out the gate to lead TEAM 914 to a 69-60 win over Harlem Ballers.
With the score tied at 16, with 11:36 in the first half, “The Problem” (18 points) lead a 4-0 run to take the first real lead of the game. He did the job defensively, as he caught a Sayonara Sucka style block on HB’s best player, young Irv a.k.a. “Cyanide” Read More »
