Many NBA fans who come from past generations, have fond memories of greatness. Players we cling to from our childhood, ’til this day. Arguing the value of a players legacy that played decades ago. Which probably feels like centuries to younger fans. Kids of today (everyone under 21), only know of the Steph Curry’s, the LeBron’s,... Continue Reading →
Why 20 years? I've been a fan of the NBA for well over 20. And I can't say, "of all time", because, well I'm 34. Sounds disrespectful. As disrespectful as putting Jordan as the cop out G.O.A.T. Lazy ass list makers! These players have either changed the game, changed the culture, or changed the way I watched... Continue Reading →

Is there a such thing as too loyal? The Davis family looks to be turning their back on the city of Oakland and East Bay Raider fans, again. All the talk about the Raiders potentially moving to Las Vegas, or possibly staying put, makes people lose sight of the three real issues at hand The... Continue Reading →
Who wants to join me in a good 'ol fashioned weight loss challenge? You don’t have to tell the world your exact weight if you don’t want. But, I do expect honesty every Friday when telling if you lost or gained—and how much. I’m not the only one not where they want to be in... Continue Reading →

We are sitting with my architect, who is showing us the building plans for my soon-to-be-built 5-bedroom, 6-bathroom 7,000 square-foot vacation house. This home boast a gourmet kitchen with countertops made in France, lace-stenciled marble backsplash made in Italy, custom walnut cabinetry, a 9-burner industrial gas range, a built-in side-by-side refrigerator complete with 2-kegerators to fill with your choice of beverages, a 9- by 5-foot island and a pantry the size of most peoples’ living room. I ask, “So, what do you think?” You look at me and say exactly what I thought you would…”Man, this is amazing!!! I can’t wait to come over and see it when it’s all done!! Then you ask me the question that’s really burning a hole in your head…”Man, I know you’re loaded and easily have more than enough cash to make this thing a reality, but humor me, how much…

Yes. Yes. And Yes. Let's get into this. Black men are not portrayed as readers at all my friends. That's very disturbing as a Black man. We can argue till the cows come home on faults but how about we bicker over solutions. Like my ten favorite book selection? No? Am I being presumptuous? Probably?... Continue Reading →
On the bulletin board, in the third grade classroom of my favorite teacher of all time, Mrs. Dorothy Marlin, were a collection of nursery rhymes; my favorite being the one about the infamous, “Ten O’clock Scholar”. The rhyme read as follows:
A diller, a dollar,
A ten o’clock scholar,
What makes you come so soon?
You used to come at ten o’clock,
And now you come at noon.
Many were the afternoons, full and drowsy from lunch, that I sat at my desk, elbow resting on the desk top and my head resting on my hand. I sat there staring at the bulletin board, but more specifically, focused on that “scholarly” rhyme.
At first glance, it seemed almost entirely nonsensical. It raised more questions than it answered, for instance, the rhyme mentioned a “diller”.
What the heck was a “diller”? And what did that dollar have to do with “the…
