Literally the best-of-the-best to play in McDonald’s All-American Game

April 6, 2013

For an elite level high school hoops player, there is no bigger  honor than being selected as a McDonald’s All-American. Since 1977, McDonald’s has hand selected the very best HS seniors to participate in the annual McDonald’s All American Game, which has served as a both a showcase of the nation’s best amateur players as well as helping to serve as a springboard for the careers of some of the most exciting NCAA and NBA players we have ever seen.

10 NBA Games that will be PERSONAL

October 24, 2012

 vs.
Oct. 30 The NBA opens the season in South Beach with a rematch of the Eastern Conference finals. The Celtics obviously fell to the eventual champs in that matchup, but they hold a 6-2 record over the Heat in the regular season in the two years since LeBron James joined the team. Plus Jesus Shuttlesworth, Ray Allen, has on a NEW jersey.
 vs.
Oct. 31 Andre Iguodala spent eight seasons in Philadelphia before being shipped to the Nuggets this offseason in the Dwight Howard megatrade. On Oct. 31, he returns to the City of Brotherly Love with his new team. Will the Sixers’ fans welcome back their one-time franchise cornerstone? Remember, this is the city that once booed Santa Claus.
 vs.
Nov. 1 The Nets will be playing for more than just a season-opening win when they face the Knicks on Nov. 1. Now in Brooklyn, the Nets are battling for the hearts and minds of New York City. A victory over their Manhattan rival would go a long way for a franchise that finished 22-44 a season ago.

 vs.
Dec. 17 Sources said the Knicks would match any offer for Jeremy Lin, but when it came down to it, the team chose not to match Houston’s three-year, $25.1 million offer. On Dec. 17, Lin returns to the city where Linsanity was born. Will this be the first of many opportunities for the 24-year-old to show New Yorkers what could have been?
vs.
Dec. 25 A rematch of the NBA finals — it doesn’t get much better on Christmas Day. There’s no doubt the Thunder already have this date on the calendar circled.

vs. 

Jan. 16 There were rumors that the Celtics were attempting to move up to draft Doc Rivers’ son, Austin, but the younger Rivers ultimately went to New Orleans at No. 10. On Jan. 16, father faces son when the Hornets travel to Boston. As if that wasn’t enough intrigue, the game also pits Anthony Davis against a player he’s often compared to, Kevin Garnett.

 vs.
Jan. 17 A possible Finals preview? We’ve been waiting for a Kobe-LeBron matchup for years and we may get it this season. The Lakers would appear to have the edge given their size up front, but no one can match up with LeBron. We’ll see how it plays out on Jan. 17.

 vs.
Jan. 27 The second Heat-Celtics clash should be much more interesting than the first. Ray Allen, who helped the Celtics capture their 17th title in 2008, moved from Beantown to South Beach this offseason amid rumors of a feud with star point guard Rajon Rondo. The signs “welcoming” Allen back to Boston are reason enough to tune in.

 vs. 
Jan. 30 Before joining the Lakers this offseason, Nash treated Phoenix fans to three trips to the Western Conference finals, two MVP seasons and one of the most exciting offenses the desert has ever seen. Lakers players rarely receive ovations in Phoenix, but Nash should be the exception.

 vs. 
March 12 Dwight Howard tortured Orlando fans off the court for months with his trade demands, and he returns in March in hopes of torturing a depleted Magic squad on the court. Lakers fans are hoping Howard doesn’t follow in the footsteps of Shaquille O’Neal, who sat out his first game back in Orlando with an injury.
