73 yr old Ken Mink makes the basketball team at Roane State!!!

Now this is what I call an "OLD School Baller" lol
His name is Ken Mink and
because he decided to join the Air Force 53 years ago, he missed out on his second year of juco basketball. It's been a decision in his life that he has always regretted. Ken Mink is 73 years old and he plays basketball for Roane State which is a community college in (Harriman, TN)

I know this story has inspired me and I think it will inspire everyone in their own little way as well. I respect the fact that despite his age Ken still followed his dream in finishing playing college basketball. I don't know about ya'll, but I wish when I'm his age I can be in the same shape as he's in. lol

On another note do you think he's just doing it for publicity? overall i respect him for not giving up because i know that's what a lot of people do, but i wish him luck in staying healthy.

This story aired on WATE-TV6 (Knoxville, TN) on October 29, 2008.

Nike Foamposite Lite sell for a US $4,500.00 smh lol

Kryptonate Nate Robinson...

When we last saw these sneaks, New York Knicks Nate Robinson was wearing them in the 09 Slam Dunk Contest, but surely he is not the only one who would love to own a pair of Slam Dunk history. As far as some may know, there are no plans to release the shoe for retail, but when looking on eBay it showed the sneaker trying to sell for nearly almost $4,500.00 smh! It will have immediate status as one of the most memorable Slam Dunk Contest of the last decade!!!

Drake beeeeeeen out., but good to see that people all over the globe are hip to the music

Come on now let's be serious...how many of y'all actually heard about drake before his new So Far Gone mix tape??? EXACTLY, not too many! lol

He's an artist that is so versatile. He can rap, act and also sing. In basketball terms he is a TRIPLE THREAT. Oh and as a matter of fact he also has a clothing line too, all at the age of 21. Let's be realistic, he is top 5 in the future of the hip hop industry. As you can see he has much to offer so be on the look out for Drake if you haven't already heard of him.

Drake's been out since those Degrassi acting days lol With a long line of mix tapes such as Room for Improvement, Comeback Season, Heartbreak Drake and his latest So Far Gone how is it that people have just started hearing about him? lol he is a good look for hip hop rather then these other bumb ass rappers like solja boy smh lol

Is Drake better then Lil' Wayne???


Have a little Faith {Let's Go Knicks}

Although i have many doubts in my mind that this will actually happen, i will always have faith in my New York Knicks. No matter what any one says or believes i think we still have a slight chance in going to the playoffs this year. I have to check the rankings to see where we stand now so I'm hoping other teams slip up so we can slip in to that 8th spot, feel me? :)

An old Native Indian proverb says...

"Everyone is a house with four rooms, a Physical, a Mental, an Emotional and a Spiritual. Most of us tend to live in one room most of the time, but unless we go into every room, every day, even if only to keep it aired, we are not a complete person."

This quote stood out to me a lot, i thought it was well said so that's why i have posted it...what are your thoughts?
