TBT Diary: A First-Hand Account From The GM & Coach of “Rep Your City”

Marcus Lewis

A few weekends ago, I had the chance to coach a group of former Division I and professional basketball players in the first annual TBT Basketball Tournament held at Philadelphia University. For someone with dreams of one day running their own NBA franchise, this platform provided me and others with the rare opportunity to recruit who ever we wanted to play in this 32-team, single elimination open tournament.

The ‘World All-Star Classic’ Is Set; The Next Michael Jordan Is Here

LeBron James

LeBron James just can’t win can he? People get so offended over a couple of tweets that it’s almost kinda sad. We can’t even tell you the number of people who hit us up after this “story” broke. Plus, like 90 percent of them were ready to crucify LeBron. He was probably messing around about Steve Nash and Jamal Crawford. But one way or another, the Heat will almost assuredly improve their depth at some point over the next year or so. If Nash were to come ring chasing in Miami, would you care?
