JOHN LUCAS HOSTS SUCCESSFUL TOURNAMENT OF CHAMPIONS
Written by: Kim Davis
Date posted: 11/21/2014
The John Lucas Foundation (JLF), led by former NBA coach and player, John Lucas, hosted a successful golf tournament, Friday, November 14, 2014, at Memorial Park Golf Course, despite the frigid weather. This was a rescheduled date and 68 golfers participated. The event raised money for JLF’s Basketball and Beyond partnership with the Houston Parks and Recreation Department designed to revitalize basketball in the community.
“This partnership will also help at risk former athletes and young athletes with various wellness issues, and be an avenue for college scholarships through exposure at basketball camps,” Lucas said. “The goal is to help kids become better people; better student athletes; provide an alternative chance for them to succeed once basketball is over and use basketball as a vehicle.” JLF’s next event is the Fonde Hall of Fame games, January 3-4, 2015.
NBA Hall of Famers Julius “Dr. J” Erving, Clyde Drexler, and Moses Malone were among the celebrity golfers. ‘Dr. J’ joined former Rockets guard, Vernon Maxwell, as co-chairs of the event. Other golfers included former Harlem Globetrotters, Reggie Dixon and Sweet Lou Dunbar; retired NBA players Major Jones, Rex Chapman, Ricky Pierce, and Chris Morris.
Maxwell knows first hand how the support JLF provides impacts lives. It is work Lucas has been doing long before he started the Foundation. “John has been like a father figure to me since I came to Houston in 1989.” He’s done so much for me on and off the court. He would talk to me and take my calls when no one else would.” Dr. J adds “John can’t do it alone, he needs an assist just like he dished out when he played. So I’m glad to be here and help with such a worthy cause.”
The John Lucas Foundation supports athletes in need of after care or wellness services and programs. JLF has successfully provided rehabilitative work for more than 25 years with professional athletes, celebrities, public figures, and others struggling with substance abuse or other life challenges.

GARY PAYTON ON DWIGHT HOWARD, "DANCE"
Written By: LM
If you are living under a stone, Oklahoma City Thunder Kevin Durant called Houston Rockets Dwight Howard a "pussy". It occurred in a game where Kevin Durant was hurt on the bench in street clothes.
We know the drill, two high profile players, Kobe Bryant and Kevin Durant shot slugs at Dwight Howard therefore in the media it has become "everyone is hating Dwight Howard".
Former Seattle Sonics/LA Laker tried to explain why "the league" dislikes Dwight Howard. Funny, because it just dawned on me, Gary Payton is a Former Thunder (Sonic) in addition to a Laker. Two places where Gary has a connection. Below is Gary Payton On Dwight Howard
Gary is a damn clown, he is all on TV talking about meeting Dwight Howard in the street and what he would do. Jackass, if you got Professional Athlete wealth, why is your mindset on street shit? You thuggin GLOVE? This is flat out lunacy, accomplished athletes in addition to a very antique one calling out players too street beef? As a black man, I really hope Dwight Howard never see Gary the Glove in the streets. This fool is dancing in front of white people promoting a "fake" hard. Idiot, they are not laughing with you, they are laughing at you. They are not asking Larry Bird, what would you do, if you came in contact with (Kevin Love) in the streets.
Gary Payton is extremely stupid for entertaining this dumb ass question about meeting Dwight Howard in the streets.
The truth, LA FANS are pissy because Dwight Howard left the Lakers
Oklahoma City is salty because of Patrick Beverly v Russell Westbrook situation a few year's back.
Jeff Van Gundy's famous rant in 2013 which is really funny because HOUSTON MEDIA loves Jeff Van Gundy

I am a passionate fan but I never publicly turned on the WATER WORKS over a Texans WIN.
During the ND KALU (FORMER EAGLE/REDSKIN) and GREG KOCH'S (FORMER PACKER) post game show, a fan got caught up in his feelings. Dude got straight emotional with it.

JOSH INNES GOES OFF ON THE COMPETITION "Mike Missanelli"
Written By: LM
When I say, Houston misses Josh Innes, the audio below may explain it. Since Josh left Houston, radio has been all out boring. Everyone in the city is all chummy and happy to be friends. There is little to no fire in smack. It is straight up Lollipop Land in Houston. Everyone is swell in Houston
I listen to Josh in Philly, and what I find funny, Philly is always described as "hard". Seriously, the fans I hear are hella sensitive. The Philly fans I hear do not match the "hard" reputation I hear.
Houston needs that personality that can "rattle" the market. I'm not talking about some Black Activist confused kid who wants to save the world, I'm talking a pure shit talker who wants to destroy their competition not be friends with them.
