Are you a fan of ESPN's 30/30? Are you also a fan of Michael Jordan? Were you brought up on the film Space Jam? Then this is the video for you as Yahoo creates a phenomenal rendition to the classic 90s film in an ESPN 30/30-esque style. Enjoy!
With the release of NWTS the media has been covering and interviewing Drake the entire day to see his thoughts on how his album has been received as well as his interests. Today Drake visited ESPN and sat in for a brief interview on "First Take" where he talks about his friendship with NCAA football phenom Johnny Manziel.
TIBS UPDATE: Here's a rundown of all of Drizzy's interviews today:
It was awkward, it was light-hearted at times, it was full of compliments, and it was awkward some more. And it just happened on live TV as Eminem joined Brent Musberger & Kirk Herbstreit at halftime in his home state of Michigan for an interview and world premiere of the "Berzerk" video teaser.
This was a fun Twitter moment if you just happened to watch it. If not, press play above and see some odd, and vintage Eminem.
Shouts Deadspin on the rip. When the teaser hits the web, we'll have another update. It already revealed cameos by Rick Rubin, Slaughterhouse (no surprises yet...) and Kendrick Lamar!
Well there you have it! Another one of Chicago's finest ballers has made his big college decision! Jabari Parker will be attending Duke University!
Earlier today the nation's No. 2 senior was at a press conference held at his school, Simeon Career Academy, where he declared he will be joining the Blue Devils over BYU, Stanford, Florida, and Michigan State.
Check out his decision above and why he chose Duke. You gotta love all the support this kid gets. I can't wait to see him play next year! I believe Jabari is the missing piece to win a championship!
When it comes to high school basketball, it's not as hyped up as much as college basketball or the NBA. However, Jabari Parker is one of the nations best high school players that many basketball fans know about. Parker is the son of former NBA star Sonny Parker and being just 17 years old Parker has been making major headlines recently.
ESPN's Dave Telep joined Jabari in Dallas, Texas where Simeon Career Academy played their second game of the year. However, Simeon lost to DeSoto (67-57) with Parker only having 5 points. Both Mike Krzyzewski and Tom Izzo were in attendance for the game, as well as other college coaches. In my opinion, there was no way that Jabari could have been nervous because of the coaches. It was only his second game back after he fractured his right foot.
Recently, I heard Jabari live on the Waddle and Silvy show. I have never met Jabari and don't know much about him besides his basketball skills, but I can truly say he is one of the most sincere and humble athletes out there. He doesn't let the media or fame get to him or his teammates. And I also can't forget to mention that he maintains a 3.7 gpa! Wow! When listening to any interview of his, I can tell he does it for his whole team, his city, and he just wants to be the best. Reminds me a lot of Chicago's very own Derrick Rose!
D Rose also went to Simeon, but he only won two state titles in his time there. Parker has already won three and is going for his fourth. On the Waddle and Silvy show, Parker mentioned how Rose is a big role model for him and gives him a lot of advice. He also stated how he is very good friends with Chicago native and now New Orleans Hornet, Anthony Davis.
Jabari Parker is considering BYU, Duke, Stanford, Florida, and Michigan State. Being a Duke fan myself, I am definitely hoping he commits to Duke! Above you can check out the video of Parker and Telep as he discusses his college decision date, what he is looking forward to, and how important team relationships are.
Instead of watching SNL last night (below), I stumbled upon the latest 30 For 30, entitled You Don't Know Bo. The subject: who many call the greatest athlete we'll ever see in our lifetime - two-sport star Bo Jackson.
In another stirring documentary from ESPN, You Don't Know Bo dives into the upbringing through Bo's career as the only MLB All-Star and NFL All-Pro in history, before a dislocated hip (and subsequent hip replacement surgery) derailed his career(s) from reaching further heights. But beyond the facts of his sporting accomplishments, we also get an examination of the mythology surrounding Bo Jackson as a super-hero.
Bo was widely seen as such because of his athleticism that we haven't seen before or since, combined with the iconic "Bo Knows" Nike campaign and stories of his incredible athletic feats (hit the crown of the KC Royals logo in center field in his first swing at batting practice, jumped over a Volkswagen, you know, those sorts of things). Plus, Bo was so naturally gifted, and he didn't talk about himself or that openly to the media, that there was a sense that he didn't care like he could - for example, in the sense that he famously referred to playing football as a "hobby", hah! Consequently, we got a captivating look at the legend of Bo, which was just as fascinating as the reminder of his awe-inspiring athletic feats.
It's another must-watch 30 For 30, ripped to the interwebs above (shouts 2 Yardie), and to further reel you in, enjoy this Bo Jackson highlight montage below.
One last note: I couldn't help but think of our own personal experience with Bo back in 2010 when watching You Don't Know Bo. The same humility that was described and seen in the documentary is something we can backup first-hand as well. Check that throwback interview and our experience here. Bo Knows!
