I know Jalisha will be covering West 4th this year, and I look forward to keeping up with it through her posts, but I happened to be in the area with my camera yesterday. I had the pleasure of witnessing one of the more dominant performances in NYC this summer yesterday at West 4th. The returning Champs, X-Men, opened up the season with a memorable performance. Tommy Eddie aka Tommy Gunz played ok, he had about twenty points through the second, third and fourth quarters. It might have been a disappointing performance for him if he didn’t hit like a million threes in the first quarter en route to dropping 20 in the first 10 minutes of the game. He finished with a gluttonous 40 points as he scored in a variety of ways – threes, post ups, taking his man off the dribble, you name it. Read More »

The only thing hotter than the temperature in NYC yesterday was the X-Men shooting.
The team drilled 17 threes en route to knocking off Diamond, 117-100, for its second consecutive West 4th crown.
The X-Men jumped out early behind the hot hands of Tommie “Gunz” Eddie and Sean Dantlzer, who combined for 20 first-quarter points, and held a 32-13 advantage after the first ten minutes.
By halftime, it was a 26-point game. Diamond never got closer than 13 the rest of the way. Read More »
X-Men Come From Behind to Knock Off Sean Bell All Stars At West 4th The Latest / Jul 13, 2009 / 10:05 am
Mike Campbell rises and fires for three.
Tommie “Gunz” Eddie was cold. Mike “The Icon” Campbell had several uncharacteristic turnovers. And the X-Men guards couldn’t seem to lock down the Sean Bell backcourt pests. There were several reasons why the X-Men should’ve lost at West 4th Street Friday evening. And yet, when it was over, the boys in black exited the Cage with smiles on their faces, looking like bankrobbers after pulling off a successful heist.
After trailing by six entering the fourth, the veteran X-Men outscored Sean Bell 35-19 over the final 10 minutes to steal a win in a matchup of the last two West 4th Street champions. Read More »
