TAG: Bobbito

Standard Mint, a Web site created by Greenpoint Pictures, recently posted a myriad of facts about our famed former Editor-in-Chief at Bounce Magazine, Bobbito Garcia. Kool Bob Love in the interview lists his five favorite albums of all time. The feature also highlights Bobbito as a historian, professional basketball player, music pioneer, world class DJ and sneaker designer. I must say he has some good taste in his choices.

Show some love to both Bobbito and Greenpoint Pictures by checking out the post HERE.

Team Flight Brothers give Rudy some air-points

TNT announcer Kenny Smith wasn’t giving props at last year’s dunk contest to anyone who went with an unoriginal dunk. If it was done before, he and the crowd demanded more. Rudy Gay went straight to youtube to find the moves for the slam dunk contest. Dwight Howard and Gerald Green came with props, using cupcakes and capes to revive the event that many said was playing itself out. Now that the bar is raised and people are looking forward to the contest, I’m personally waiting for someone to add some streetball/b-boy flavor to the festivities. We got players lobbing and kicking the ball to dunkers. How ’bout some “Alimoe-B-boy” aka “The Section 8″ to add more flavor to the event.

The Section 8 movement is for all my brothers and sisters who came up from the jects, tenements, and homes that were looking for someone to notice their skills. I’m down with it and a part of it. Alimoe is one of the most original ball handlers in the world. His infamous “wrap the ball around the defenders head and then pass it off the backboard to himself for a dunk” is a game-executed move that was done at EBC and the Holcombe Rucker Tournament. Here are some good “section 8″ suggestions. Read More »

Salvador water, Brazil

While Bob was getting his multi-cultural action on in Brazil, the Bounce Magazine squad held it down in the SBL (Park West HS on 50th Street between 10th & 11th aves) on Sunday. We got off to a slow start while our opponents made it rain 3’s early and often. We trailed by double-digits in the second half and it didn’t help us that the sideline heckling was at maximum decibels. Or did it? Read More »
