Aquille Carr. Marcus Lovett, Jr. Jamal Crawford. Austin Rivers. They’re all here on Ballislife’s Ankle Breakers Vol. 2, over four minutes of straight ruthlessness. These highlights are a product of multiple years of filming, as you’ll find footage from just about every level of basketball. It all ends with a move that was so sick it actually did “hurt” somebody. Read More »
High school legend Aquille Carr spent most of the past summer killing the competition overseas, including shutting it down at the adidas Eurocamp in Italy. However, he still had time to come home to Baltimore and show how it’s done during the Goodman versus Melo League showdown and the Will Barton Stop The Violence Challenge. Check out the highlights after the jump. Read More »
First there was Brandon Jennings and Jeremy Tyler. Now there’s Aquille Carr. Originally committed to Seton Hall, the 5-6 Carr decided to forgo college and start his professional career overseas, and earlier this summer on a USA Legends Tour (playing with people like Tracy McGrady, Jason Williams and Gary Payton) he played well enough to receive a contract offer. Check out some of his best highlights from the summer. Read More »
Portland’s Will Barton didn’t have any dunks that rivaled what he did earlier this summer, but he was still one of the headliners in his Stop The Violence Challenge in Baltimore. Taking place at St. Frances Academy in B-More, the charity game also featured Josh Selby, Aquille Carr, Donte Greene and Kent Bazemore, who had more than his fair share of highlights. Read More »
There’s a strong argument that the DMV produces more basketball talent than any other area in the country. Over the weekend, they showed some of it off in the annual Goodman League versus Kurk Lee Pro am game, which was won by D.C., 105-88. As always though, Baltimore’s Josh Selby and Aquille Carr showed out. Read More »

This interview was originally published in Dime 73. Check newsstands nationwide to see the feature printed in its entirety.
Sure, Tyrone “Muggsy” Bogues gained fame and popularity because at 5-3, he was the smallest player to ever suit up in the NBA. But even today, he casts a large shadow as one of the most memorable players of the 1990s because he played a frenetic style that became a trademark of one of the most underrated teams of that era.

11+ years, more than 70 issues and more than 5 million print copies in circulation – Dime Magazine has not only been a mainstay in the basketball universe, but it has also changed the way readers consume basketball content. Before us, there were no magazines that focused on what happened on the court and what ballplayers were into away from it.
We broke new ground, pioneered, and then championed basketball culture. And I have been lucky enough to be here for every minute of the ride. It’s high time we take a look back at how far we’ve come and the generations we have traversed. Here are all of Dime‘s covers in chronological order, from the most recent all the way back to gem you see at the top of this post from 2001.
There’s a story behind every single one of these covers. Some were more challenging to pull off than others (I have spent a lifetime waiting in hotels for Allen Iverson), some were ridiculous (Shaq was very specific about his “Godfather” costume as well as the requested gummy bears on set for Dime #38) and some were downright inspired (look no further than Kobe Bryant‘s self-authored cover story and art-directed cover shoot for Dime #22). Some day we will get around to telling all of the stories, but for now, here’s a visual tour of how far we – and the game – have come: Read More »
Aquille Carr has always been different, and now one of the most unique players we’ve seen on the high school level officially made his decision on where he’ll be playing next year. He’s not going to Seton Hall – Carr will be following in Brandon Jennings‘ footsteps and heading overseas to play professionally in Europe. He announced it on senior night while dropping 52 points in Princeton Day’s 121-82 win. Read More »

It wasn’t quite like LeBron returning to Cleveland or like Death Row Records coming to New York City. But Dwight Howard was showered with more than a few boos in his return to Orlando, and more than a few creative signs. There was a “Judas Coward” and a “Congratulations: we despise you more than Shaq!” and a “Dwight: my four-year-old can make free throws.” It’s too bad none of those signs could play defense because Howard looked like Superman again, obliterating the Magic for 39 points, 16 rebounds and 39 free throw attempts in a 106-97 Lakers win.

No one is quite sure what Aquille Carr plans to do next season. There are rumblings he might skip college and take the same route Brandon Jennings did: play for a year or so overseas with the hope of one day getting into the NBA. Carr’s future is cloudy at the moment, but his talent is still undeniable. In this senior year mixtape, it’s more apparent than ever. Read More »
