I got five predictions for Summer 2011, and I’ve stated my thoughts on Dyckman Park. I personally don’t feel that the park is ready for 5k Weds nights, but I want to be wrong. I remember being one of those dudes that wanted to compete and get paid, and I also remember being a coach in Dyckman Park with a brand. And while I never received a dollar to coach or paid a player to play outdoors, I know the energy of the spot. So with that said, I’m going to make some predictions and if anyone wants to hate, slip in out of the frame thinking it doesn’t narrow, constrict and coil, trust me fams it’s not the year for it, and ultimately, it’s just an opinion!

TAG: 2 Hard 2 Guard
Verbals: Cardell “Since 9-years-old” Dudley”
Tough! That’s the word that describes fan-favorite Dele Ojo of the Goodman League. The 6-0 lefty-combo guard is a two-way performer on the street and has strong respect in the DMV area. After suiting up collegiately first at Montgomery College-Rockville (MD-JUCO) where he earned all-JUCO honors and then at the University of Pfeiffer (D2), Ojo has played for the ABA’s First State Fusion, the WBA’s Decatur Court Kings and is presently in Mexico, with the Abejas de Guanajuato averaging 13.7 points and shooting 58.5% from the floor.

Adris “2 Hard 2 Guard” DeLeon scored 21 points to lead the Uptowners.
It was difficult to figure out why Adris “2 Hard 2 Guard” DeLeon had a little smirk on his face as he stepped onto the court at Hunter College Thursday evening. After all, his winless Uptowners were taking on undefeated Gold’s Gym, which suited up former Duke star Jason Williams and former first-team all ACC selection Julius Hodge, in addition to studs Mike “Optimus Prime” Glover and Gary Ervin. Perhaps DeLeon knew something no one else did because two hours later, the smile was still there.
In the biggest upset of the summer, the Uptowners defeated Gold’s Gym, 107-106.
DeLeon led the guys in powder blue with 21 points, and James Roberts added 19 and 11. Read More »
