Detroit still undecided on T-Mac

It’s like there’s no middle ground: NBA teams either make decisions that seemingly take no forethought (e.g. New York re-hiring Isiah Thomas and subsequently pissing off Donnie Walsh), or they overthink decisions that should be easy. The most recent example of that? Detroit still mulling whether or not to sign Tracy McGrady. Why wouldn’t Joe Dumars make the move? From everything we’re hearing it’s a one-year, vet-minimum contract, so no risk there. It’s not like you’re throwing off the chemistry of a championship-contending group. Read More »

Baltimore Shows “No Mercy”

Red Bull Bmore5

It’s easy to see that the Red Bull 2-on-2 Revolution tour is picking up steam as it snakes its way down the East Coast. In the tournament’s fourth stop, Baltimore’s Cloverdale Park (where Carmelo Anthony honed his game growing up), teams from New Jersey and Philadelphia showed up, and the championship game featured Team Boston — who is actually from Baltimore.

The semifinals had an all-Philly matchup on one court, with an all-B’more contest going on the opposite court. In the Philly-Baltimore final, No Mercy, composed of Philly natives Tyrone “Redz” Hill and DeSean White, walked away with the $2,000 check, Skull Candy headphones and Kicker iPod stereos.

Bo Kimble Plays Ball for More than Money in Philly

The basketball court has always been a place of sanctity for Bo Kimble. Growing up as a kid in the projects of North Philadelphia, Kimble used his talents to earn a way out, securing a basketball scholarship to the University of Southern California in 1985. Alongside Dobbins High School teammate and fellow Trojan Hank Gathers, Kimble decided to transfer to Loyola-Marymount, where the Lions would fight their way to the NCAA tournament each of his three years on campus. Twenty-five years later, as he stepped onto the court at Chew Playground in South Philadelphia for the Red Bull 2on2 Revolution Tournament, all eyes were yet again on Bo Kimble. Read More »

Philly Legends and Playground Stars Battle for $2,000

Red Bull Philly winners

No doubt about it, this past weekend’s Red Bull 2on2 Revolution Tour stop in Philly was the most talented and intense tournament yet. The Boston and New York City events were serious, but the Philly event was absolutely loaded in terms of skill and names.

Teams from all over the city (and a few familiar faces from the NYC tournament) descended on South Philly’s Chew Playground early Saturday morning to battle it out for $2,000. The Philly field was stacked with some old school legends like Bo Kimble and Lewis “Black Magic” Lloyd as well as elite young talent like former DII Player of the Year Tayron Thomas and local playground star Antoine “Do Dirty” Brown. When the smoke cleared, E2 was the last team standing, somehow surviving a brutal tournament and besting several bigger, faster teams on their way to the chip, $2,000, Skullcandy headphones and Kicker iPod stereo equipment.
