  • 1.9.13 Enthusiasm: Take Some and Pass It On

    While impatiently waiting for the bus on a cold and rainy New York City afternoon, I couldn’t help but interrupt my brain’s running ticker of thoughts (which included some not so nice choice words for Mother Nature) to take notice of a particularly entertaining gentleman nearby. At first, his jibber jabber about the Playwright Celtic …


  • 10.24.12 Baby Knows Best

    Funny how a waddling toddler in diapers can truly widen your perspective. Helpless, powerless, and for a while there, toothless, I’m convinced these mini-humans are on to something. It dawned on me a couple weeks ago when I was babysitting Hudson, a close friend’s son. With his blissful spirit, carefree curls and contagious giggle, this …


  • 3.26.12 Tales From Gator Nation

    In the spirit of March Madness, I thought I’d share an anecdote that dates back to my college days at the world’s greatest sports school. Obviously I am talking about the University of Florida. Since everyone has got an opinion/prediction on March hoops and a bracket (or 10) to show for it, I’ve decided to …


  • 3.9.12 The Good Word With…Sam Perkins

    Q: We are just passed the All-Star break. Thoughts on the season thus far? It’s hard to say where teams will be at the end of the regular season. Everyone is playing on cruise control right now, with games almost every night. As far as surprise teams, it’s still somewhat the Spurs I believe. Indiana …


  • 3.8.12 DJ Irie: To Know Him Is To Love Him

    DJ Irie…Whatta Man (thank you, Salt ‘N’ Pepa).                    Practically bursting at the seams with energy, DJ Irie, or as I fondly call him, “Deej,” is one of the greatest guys out there. With his larger-than-life personality, contagious enthusiasm and endearing charm, this guy is no ordinary DJ (not that there’s anything wrong with that). *Reader’s …


  • 2.16.12 The Good Word With…Bernard King

    Q: You had a tremendous career, but no NBA Championship. Does that weigh on you today? If you look back through NBA history, you will see that other than when Hakeem won the title with Houston in 1994 and Dirk with Dallas last year, no team has won an NBA Championship without at least two …


  • 2.16.12 The Thing We Love To Hate (Myself Included!)

    Networking, sigh. It’s like going to the dentist- you know you’ve got to do it, but nobody actually enjoys it. By nobody, I mean about 82.6 percent of people would rather watch Kathy Griffin’s new talk show (spoiler alert: it’s really happening). But, like it or not, networking is an essential component of growing any …


  • 2.9.12 The Good Word With…Mitch Richmond

    An NBA Champion, six-time NBA All-Star and Olympic gold medallist, guard Mitch Richmond is a 14-year NBA veteran. Selected by the Golden State Warriors fifth overall in the 1988 NBA Draft, he played three years with the squad, where he teamed with Chris Mullin and Tim Hardaway to form “Run TMC,” a high-scoring and fan favorite trio. He went on to spend seven seasons with Sacramento, three with Washington and one with Los Angeles, where he won an NBA Championship.


  • 2.9.12 The Real Deal About NBA Players

    One question I continue to receive since embarking on the NBA PR world more than a decade ago is…what are NBA players really like? And, undoubtedly (well at least 8 times of out of 10), that question is followed up with more loaded questions, like, they must be stupid and/or they’ve got to be divas, or some variation of the two. I suppose the latter are more statements than questions, but I feel the need to “answer” nonetheless.
