Semi-Finals at Dyckman presented some unpredictable twists

Playoff action resumed at Dyckman last night with yet another electric crowd. Fans at Dyckman really get into the game. Yes, they are often literally on the court and in the game that way, but they are also basketball-savvy fans who do not hesitate to let their opinions be known. No better time to speak up than when the stakes are at their highest: playoffs. Win or go home. And it’s a long wait until the summer of 2011 – lots of lost sleep can take place over that one turnover you wish you had back or that rushed shot that was swatted into next summer.

Last night Mann Up took on TNP and Team 914 faced Castle Hill in Dyckman semi-final action. Continue reading for details on how it all went down. Read More »

Jumpin’ it up at the 2010 Jordan Brand Classic at Madison Square Garden

As I post this, I just witnessed the youngest team in the NBA defeat the defending champion Lakers in game 3 and I can’t help but think that many of the guys who participated in the JBC last Saturday will find themselves in a similar situation soon. By now, you’ve probably heard plenty about the game last weekend, so I’d just like to take you on a visual tour with some pics I was fortunate enough to capture. I’d love to hear your thoughts on the game and on the visuals and I hope you enjoy them. Read More »

Harrison Barnes finishes with authority

By now you’ve probably heard about a little game that was played at The Garden this weekend called the Jordan Brand Classic. If you haven’t, check out the recap by The Lower East Scribe – it’s thorough. Those who were able to see the game were given a glimpse into the future of basketball. With the spring season here in full swing and Bobbito’s Anytime, Anyday workouts happenin’ I can almost smell summer 2010. So to help get us focused on the upcoming hoops that will be taking place in NYC this summer, I’d like to share some images of the past year with you. Since the JBC is fresh on everyone’s minds, let’s start there. In upcoming posts I will be your visual tour guide for what was a great summer in ‘09. Read More »

The playground game has changed. Everyone from kids to young teens up to adults have put other priorities first in the ever fast paced world of iPods, Blackberrys, and technological gizmos. I’m not saying technology is bad, but it definitely has had its effects on the people today. For the diehard hoop heads, they can always be found on the asphalt – snow, rain, sleet, or hail.

I came across this David Banner throwback with the basketball background with guys putting in that hard work on the hardwood. In an era of hoop heads and hip-hop heads, the two married in a perfect match where we saw throwback jerseys, mentions of streetball legends like Pee Wee Kirkland in lyrics, and even music videos like below.

What’s your favorite memory of hip-hop culture infused with the basketball world?
