“The Accelerator.”

One of my favorite players in college ball is Harrison Barnes. I even have a nickname for him – “The Accelerator.” Barnes is super-fast in the air to the hoop just like a man who Michael Jordan won chips with, Scotty Pippen. I did a How We Do (Our signature move section) with Harrison in Bounce #22 and in it he mentioned how he patterned his game after the versatile Pippen.

As the Sweet 16 starts up tonight, I read a tweet from @RadioHoopGirlz about Michael Jordan telling Harrison Barnes to shelf his Nike Zoom Kobe VI’s and wear Jordans the rest of the way. No one really argues with Mike, but it reminded me of something… Read More »

Started in 1926 by Carter G. Woodson as National Negro week, the advent of Black History Month celebrates the achievements of the African-American.

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.

First up is Christian “Boo” Jackson, a junior forward for Emporia State University after playing for Manhattan and Bowie State respectively. Standing 6-5 and weighing in at 230 lbs, Boo is a good mix of power an finesse. Ask his opponents, it’s hell checking this dude. Try to put a bigger player on him, he kills you from the outside on the dribble drive. Try to put a smaller player on him who is quick enough to stay with him, he will PUNISH him in the post. Better yet, ask the reigning NBA scoring champ Kevin Durant how hard it is to stop Boo – he gave Durant squad 40 in 2009 Goodman league playoff Read More »
