Today’s blog is about one of the top players in the NBA: LaBron James. But this entry has nothing to do with his exploits on the court.
One of his sons, LaBron “Bronny” James Jr. is currently one of the top players for his 14 and under age group in the country. Yes, he is already getting college scholarship offers.
His son was preparing to play in a AAU tournament game in the pre-game layup line when Bron-Bron jumped in the line and started shooting layups with the other kids. But of course, his layups weren’t regular layups. They were actually on the level of NBA All-Star dunks, which is kind of ironic for me seeing that he makes a point not to participate in the actual NBA dunk contests they hold during the league All-Star games. But I digress.
While the kids loved it, some people had a problem with it. And in LaBron’s case, some people means millions. This included people saying that he was exploiting his son by building the James brand. Others, on the other hand saw it as quality time with his son.
Is this too much or like Luther said, never too much?
I had a father who provided me all of my material needs to give me a chance at success. This included giving me the opportunity to attend one of the top prep schools in the city. I did not want for anything that I could put my hands on.
But he was not there for emotionally. He never attended any of my games. It’s important for you to know that I do not resent him for this. I loved my father very much. As I always say, he didn’t know how to be a father on an emotional level just as much as I didn’t know how to be a son emotionally to him if you can understand that.
Having said that, I don’t have a problem with what Bron-Bron did. While just being able to see my father in stands would have meant the world to me, I would have gotten a kick of seeing him running lay ups.
Fathers, take time to see your children participate in athletic events. It is one of the best investments you can make in your child’s development. Take it from somebody who never knew.– BreezyG
Luck has gone through hardships in his early career with lack of talent on the roster. Without him, the Colts would’ve been a laughing stock in the NFL in his early years. It all came down to getting the right GM for the job to come in and change not only the culture ,but the roster and the way rival teams view the Indianapolis Colts as a football franchise to better help Luck. Building the offensive line and finally getting it right after all those years of whiffs on draft night, getting younger and faster on defense, getting the best coaches, getting difference-makers on offense on and off the field, being versatile throughout the roster, which i believe is key for making this roster the best Luck has had in his short career.
Ballard wants the roster to be deep..deep to the point that the best players they cut are being signed by someone else immediately..He’s said that’s how he wants to get the roster, and Ballard believes it is almost there.

HEY GUYS!! Paul here, i am back and feeling better than ever. I was away for awhile but i had to be. I had to stay motivated and push myself so I started playing softball on my friends team last month. I feel like Omar now!! He’s a rebel, a guy who just calls it like he sees it and it reminds me to be more like him. I’m gonna have to travel to go to the beach this year<just like most years. Summer is coming though and i am so excited regardless. Great shows lately guys, i have been tuning in and liking everything i hear. Great job guys, keep up the good work.a I told my friend Mitch about you guys too…..he’s a surfer but i told him to listen bro….. dude. Tell Omar he is the MAN!!
Hey Guys, it’s your favorite fan, Paul. I was busy but now I’m back. Minnesota is cold now and that means that winter is here. We need to talk more about the winter season because this season is the hardest man. Its cold guys but i still wanted to chime in and let you know that i been keeping an eye on Omar’s Bears and they look pretty good. I know Omar is happy too. Les is a funny guy, Kenyon is such a leader man and he really takes over the show. Hey Devin bro, i really think you could be a comedian. Kevin also kills me with his Halloween costumes, he is one funny guy. I am now focused on winter sports and it’s all about basketball & hockey after February. I don’t like it. Keep it up guys and i will keep watching……duh!!

Hey guys have you missed me? I have been busy all summer but now i am back and ready for football season! Summer was great so far……NBA Playoffs, World Cup, MLB and now NFL is coming soon! Are you guys ready? I know Omar is…….i have been watching the show and paying attention to you guys. I really liked Chief Diplomat Blackmon’s appearance, the World Cup ladies and the other guests that have appeared. It was so cool to see other people on the show and interacting in the same way, hey maybe 1 day i can come on the show guys!? I’d love to meet Omar in person! I love how far you guys have come, it’s time for 32 Kings Road soon, we have a great fall schedule coming up and it’s going to be great!
Sorry i was gone for so long but it’s been a long, hot summer here in Minnesota. Keep up the good work guys!
I can’t wait to see what is in store for this fall.
Going into their game 7 matchup with my Washington Capitals against the Tampa Bay Lightning for the right to play for the Stanley Cup, it was already in my top five sporting events in my sports fandom. It already ranks up with the Washington football franchise title run in ’83 (see Riggo run) and the Bullets fever title run in 1978. I still remember the crowd chant of “…EEEEEEEEE…” for Hall of Famer Elvin Hayes and his turn around jump shot and the outlet passes of fellow HOF Wes Unseld.
The reason this game was such a big deal is the hope that it would end a 20 (!) year drought of not getting to the big dance. Back in 1998, the Caps played in the MCI Center, the first year of it’s existence. Even with that, we were not the hockey town that we are trying to be now. It was not a surprise that we were swept by the then powerhouse Detroit Red Wings.
But to paraphrase, as the song goes (for most of you, you will probably have to Google it) baby look at us now. In looking at the game last night, they showed a scene in which our home arena (now called Capital One) was packed with Caps fans wearing our red jerseys, better known to us as “rockin the red”. You going to hearing that a lot in the next few days.
The funny thing is, the game was played in Tampa.
After the game, the fans spilled out onto the streets. And I’m sorry, we did act like we had not been here before. Because we hadn’t. And this was just for winning the Eastern Conference championship. I mean, everybody, of all color and creeds are excited like the Pointer Sisters. And we all like it.
As for the game, it seemed like a formality. It’s rare that I get it right about my analysis for victory. Simply put, I had just three words: Ovi, Holtsby. Leadership. Ovi set the tone by scoring game’s first goal from his office and Holtsby stopped 29 shots en route to his second consecutive shutout.
I admit, I would be lying to you if I said it would be alright if we didn’t win the Cup. That the season was great enough as it is. So I won’t. In my best Chef Curry impersonation…Let’s Goooooooo!!

Hey guys I have been gone for the Fall and Winter, but i’m back again and ready for the Spring. I have been watching you guys on your other show 32 Kings Road and I really like that show too. Omar is great on both shows, he’s always giving his insight’s and feedback. I think this show is great too, but I can’t wait until the Spring when you guys do the other show as well. I like that show because it’s more versatile and covers more sports. It’s real cool how you guys are starting to take off and gain popularity. You deserve it, you have a had a great show the whole time and I think it’s finally getting noticed. I always knew you guys were gonna be popular. I’m gonna start coaching soon and I want to write all about it to you guys.
See you soon.
