Ladies and gents, boys and girls, children of all ages, Summer 2010 is almost here. If you’re like me, you’re fighting the cold winds of the winter and doing nothing but praying that they subside and the summer begins, when you can take all the extra clothing off and actually enjoy the weather. This is dedicated to all the tournaments in NYC–all the way from the Boogie Down Bronx through Queens and Brooklyn ’til you land in Lower Manhattan and make your final destination a trek up the FDR going from East to West Harlem!

Big shout out to Ilkkan Dede from Ankara Turkey who composed this mix that you see here today, it wasn't 100% accurate but after you see it you wont even care.

My favorite Winter tournament, ever! Big shot out to Du, Dog and the whole TNP crew!

Once again we are deep into the winter in the jaws of New York City, funny thing about it is it felt like spring until the snow storm hit us but now as it gets colder people are substituting there ball kicks for Playstation joysticks and a copy of NBA LIVE 10!

Practically there’s nothing to do besides go to work or try to find your local run where the competition might not be as good as you want it to be! The solution, Read More »

If you didn't have your sets tuned to CBS Saturday afternoon, then you missed a heck of a performance by one of New York's (Harlem) own Jeremy Hazell, who is notoriously known all over the Apple as the Cabby or the Cab Driver.

He was originally named the "Haitian Cab Driver" by Kingdome announcer Taz at the Showboat Classic a few years back. I remember when I witnessed the Cabby make the game look too easy. It was like conjoined twins with a basketball at birth.

On Saturday, he showed the world he can ball for real as he scored 40 points and grabbed seven boards on national television. If Cabby continues to play the way he has been, I think he has a chance to go NBA lottery pick. What do you guys think?

Watch Hazell get real clutch at the end of the game in the clip above and don't forget to add Bounce Magazine on twitter by clicking right here.

Ryan Harrow is NC State's best kept secret for the 2010-2011 NCAA season. The kid has a sick handle and knows how to be a floor general. By the end of the high school season, he might be the #1 ranked guard.

Make sure you don't blink if you get to witness his barrage of skills. Enjoy the clip; you might even rewind it four or five times.

I just got the word that former NBA player Mark Jackson is a finalist for next year’s Basketball Hall of Fame. Jackson was drafted 18th by the New York Knicks in 1987 and gave his heart and soul to our city for the first five years of his NBA career. He is one of three Knicks, along with Willis Reed and Patrick Ewing, to win Rookie of the Year.

On Sept. 2, 1992, the Knicks traded Mark to the Clippers for Doc Rivers and the greatest choke in NYC history, Charles Smith, who got pinned four times in the 1993 Eastern Conference Finals as you can see in the video below.

Mark went on to lead the Clippers to two playoff appearances in two years and then was traded to the enemy, the Indiana Pacers, adding even more fuel to the rivalry. The Knicks went on to beat the Pacers in seven games at the 1994 Eastern Conference Finals, but in the second round of the 1995 playoffs, Mark and Reggie Miller would get their revenge by beating the Knicks in the second round in seven games.

On Friday the 13th, I was involved in an unfortunate incident, where I was slashed across the face as you can see in the picture above, in my own area of the Lower East Side. Read More »
