Verbals: Cardell Dudley
D.M.V- ON THE VERGE
Whats going on world? Cardell “since 9 years old” Dudley is back to bring talented players from my hometown the D.M.V (DC,MD,VA) to the forefront. Players you should keep an eye out for, players who put in work on the big stages of college,the pros and ESPECIALLY the playground. Players ON THE VERGE of becoming a household name.

Whats up everyone this is Mingus Murray, new blogger for Bounce Magazine. I headed up to the EBC at Rucker Park to catch the game of the week between undefeated Team 914 vs TNP. Last night marked a big day in basketball news. Lebron’s decision was on everyone’s mind in NYC. Will Lebron come and join Amare Stoudemire, will he return to the Cavs, will he join H to the O V in Jersey, or will he take a slight pay cut and dream team it up with D-Wade and Chris Bosh? The World would find out shortly but for all of us in Harlem, watching Team 914 and TNP go at it, Lebron’s decision slipped from our minds… for a little while. Read More »
