:10 Ya”ll keep going for the soft talk from “STAT”…aka Amar’e Stoudemire and “Mello”…aka Carmelo Anthony and you’ll soon find out where the rear steal in the Knick’s-Nuggets trade was and why they call him “Mr. Big Shot”….aka Chauncey Billups.

:09 Alright. Last time I bring this up, I promise…maybe! But do you mean to tell me that Oklahoma City can have an NBA team and Pittsburgh can’t? They got nine [9] Black people in Ok. City and they bus in four [4] just for the game. And yes they sell out!!! I am just sayin.


:08 Good luck and God Bless Justin Mullen—one of the best young guys I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with. A great city league baller at Peabody High School. An outstanding player in the Connie Hawkins League and a member of our camps and clinics since he was 12 years old. He’s off to Kuwait, yes that Kuwait to find fame and fortune. Be safe my brother!

:07 Lord knows I am no Phil Jackson and I ain’t mad at Derrick Fisher, but don’t try to tell me that Shannon Brown and “Kobe” wouldn’t be a killer back court. [Shut-up….. I know Brown’s not a natural point guard but he does so many other things well and he jumps out the freakin’ gym]

:06 Coach Rick Pitino of Louisville, normally  a style-setter, missed the mark in the Pitt game. He looked like a candy cane in a barbershop window in that “too soon” white suit and red and white striped tie.

:05 Hey, I got a few calls on the lists. First of all, Clyde Vaughn was not a 2-guard. He was a small forward. Secondly, yes Ronnie McGrae is worthy of top ten guard consideration. And I didn’t forget to put Tyrone “Moon” Howard on the top ten dunk list. But “Moon” was a long jumper not a high flyer.


:03 If you didn’t know, the Golden Gloves started last week. Jimmy Cvetic is running a great show as usual with some great young talent. For more information, tune into your boys Luther Dupree and “Smokin Jim” Fazier on Steel City Sports PCTV Channel 21 or give Cvetic a call at 412-298-7373.

:02 “Wannamaker” after I gave you props last week…Game on the line, in overtime, ball in your hands, 8 seconds on the clock, you need three to tie the game…you’re at the three…shoot the damn ball… C’mon Man!!!

:01 If you’re reading this and it’s Thursday March 3rd somewhere between 5:30 and 8:30 p.m., put this paper down and get over to The Cambria suites next to Consol Arena. It’s the Champions tip-off reception party and we’re having a great time without ya!
