(photo. Brigade Marketing)

The name Lenny Cooke has become part myth, part bogeyman and part warning to anyone that thinks talent, and talent alone, gets you to the Association. But the trials and tribulations Cooke experienced in the ensuing 14 years after he was ranked the No. 1 high school basketball player in the country, don’t feature a single regret. Read More »

Video: Allen Iverson Goes For 37 Points In China Against Rafer Alston

Allen Iverson

Ever since Allen Iverson traveled to China for a celebrity tour in October and then immediately crossed over a defender just like the old times, details have been scarce about AI. Here’s what we can gather from watching this video uploaded today from China, then: After being presented with a poster of his face with the inscription “Ra Boogie,” AI dropped 37 points, showed off a silky jumper and tossed his fair share of alley-oops in a recent game between players — including Rafer Alston — who have seen better days.

Video: Stephon Marbury Gets Called a “B**tch” In China Finals; Knees Aaron Brooks in the Face

Stephon Marbury

I miss Stephon Marbury.

The headline to this post aside, things really are going quite well for Steph in China. This week he is in a spot to lead his Beijing Ducks to their first-ever CBA championship over league power Guandong Tigers (led by Aaron Brooks).

The 35-year old Marbury went nuts in the three games his team won in the 5-game semifinals, going for 30 points in one game, and 50+ in the other two. The finals won’t be easy though, as you see in this video from Game 1 where he gets a cheap shot from a defender and then gets told about it: Read More »

Where Are They Now: Voshon Lenard

Voshon Lenard

It’s been a minute since we’ve done a Where Are They Now? feature on the site, and this one kind of just fell into our laps. After 11 years in the NBA, playing for the likes Miami, Denver, Toronto and Portland, Voshon Lenard was definitely one of my favorite players to watch. But now instead of draining threes, it appears the Three-Point Shootout champion from the 2004 NBA All-Star Weekend is working with Captain Morgan. Read More »

Lamond Murray

When former 11-year NBA player Lamond Murray began to help his son and daughter research colleges, he came across a company named NCSA that was dedicated to helping young athletes find the right colleges for them.

Where Are They Now: Cuttino Mobley

Cuttino Mobley

11,964 points, 2,902 rebounds and 2,015 assists in 11 NBA seasons. That boils down to 16.0 points, 3.9 rebounds and 2.7 assists per game. Pretty impressive stats for an entire NBA career. Clearly not elite, but definitely representative of a quality NBA player. So to whom do we attribute these numbers? That’s right, Cuttino Mobley. Read More »

Where Are They Now: LaRue Martin

LaRue Martin

The story of LaRue Martin begins in a high school gymnasium in Chicago, Ill. The Mighty Meteors, as they were called: LaRue Martin was the tallest player on his varsity team.

There was a very telling photograph taken of his team that year. A photograph that accidentally and impeccably illustrated Martin’s natural personality. In the picture, the team is huddled around their coach who is on one knee having a word with his players. Off to the left, somewhat behind the huddle, is the 6-8 sophomore with his hands behind his back, peering over shoulders, a slight hunch in his stance. Read More »
