A few days ago I came across this article from the Fox Sports web site that outlined the possibility of an NBA Tour here in Australia, specifically Melbourne. Some big names are involved – reigning MVP Derrick Rose, scoring champ Kevin Durant, elite PG Chris Paul and Lakers’ big man Pau Gasol so this isn’t just some group of b-grade players coming to Oz to play a few pickup games.
With the NBA lockout having no resolution in sight, this event remains very probable and I welcome this proposition. It’s one thing to see D.Rose cross someone over or see KD35 hit jumper after jumper on TV but to see these guys live in their element would be great.
Now we just have to find a way to get these guys to Glebe on a Saturday night in late 2011…
There are plenty of Jordan compilations available on the Internet, but not all of them can reflect artistry of the greatest ever basketball player. Occasionally we do get a fitting tribute to the GOAT and this offering from LK12Productions is one of those glorious highlight reels. It’s so epic it had to be split up into two parts… or is that symbolic of MJ’s pre-first-retirement career and post-first-retirement career?
Hey check it out; I didn’t even know that this site ever existed. I was browsing through nba.com and I came across this post on their blog, it’s for Warner Bros. best selling movie Space Jam. This site was developed 15 years ago and it is still up and running as how it was made originally.
I’m sure you all remember this movie, black and blue 11’s.. MJ and Bugs! Damn, I have to see it again. More info at http://allball.blogs.nba.com/
