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.

Co-chairs "Doctor J" and "Mad Max"

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".

Then there was Gary Payton aka The Glove.  I'm fan of the "Glove" but this negro danced (he did the Sambo).  The Sambo is when a black man dance for white people.  It's an "HMW THING" we like to say.

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.

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.

Mad Radio is the most popular show in Houston. Full Disclosure, Mad Radio is alternating the number one slot over a sustained period of time with In the Trenches.

Mad Radio is hosted by Mike Meltser and Seth Payne from 10-2p M-F.  They have been together for two years (give or take).

Mad is my favorite show on Sports Radio 610 but it do not hold my attention the duration of the show.   I've noticed, I listen to Mad for 30 to 45 minutes at a time because usually they reset their topics or a hot topic.


What  pisses me off with the show is what I appreciate. They change topics too much but now I have come to realize, after you get a full hour in, you are good unless something "Breaks" why they are on air.

When I listen to Seth and Mike, I know I'm not listening to dummies.  I like to call them "Myth Busters".  If an event occurs while they are off the air, they will observe the reaction and debunk the popular opinion later.   Sometimes a popular opinion is right but they do not have an issue explaining why a popular opinion is wrong.

Intelligence, outside of Charlie Pallilo's Show, Mad Radio is one of the most intelligent shows currently on air in Houston.  Seth and Mike are highly intelligent and present their content in that manner.  To fully appreciate Mad Radio, you have to be somewhat of a nerd.

I like the recent Video Feature addition.  Mad Radio is one of the only shows on Sports Radio 610 with the video feature.  I like it because it looks professional.  It's nothing new to radio, a few radio shows have web cam technology and the whole market uses webcams during Super Bowl Radio Row but Mad Radio's daily cam is legit.  I do not like the way it's archived, if it's archived at all.  For some reason you cannot fast forward or rewind the video and you can only see the last show.  Maybe this is a navigational problem which points to the Webmaster ignoring the "KISS" methodology.


As stated earlier, the show can get stale.  What I've come to notice, Mad Radio starts off on fire and falls dry as the show proceeds.  This could possibly lead back to the volume of topics, resetting topics or my next point

Mad Radio needs more listener interaction.  It really gets boring listening to two guys talk to each other the majority of the time with little to no interaction and I'm not talking about that cherry picking text shit they like to believe is interaction.  As Lance Zierlein joked about, straight Communism Radio.  We talk you listen, no other perspective.  Of course I'm playing but it wouldn't hurt to hear listener's points of view.  The whole thing about dumb fans can be dealt with.  I look at how Pallilo controls his show, little to ignorance gets through because they know he's no-nonsense.


As far as personal styles. 

Seth Payne counters all of his anger.  In other words, if he goes off on a rant and he's fired up on a person or topic, the very next segment expect him to apologize or explain his point of view.  Maybe it's his way of remaining objective. It comes off as if he feels bad for being mad at a specific situation or person.  Seth also talks over Mike a lot.  I mentioned this to him before but I still hear it. I like the way Seth applies logic to his takes.  He goes out of his way to think his takes out and explain them to the audience and Mike.  

I have came a long way with Mike Meltser. There was a time, everything about Mike's style annoyed me but after he partnered with Seth, I begin liking him again.  I believe the original Mad Radio with Brad Davies was so horrible that it was hard to really enjoy Mike. It's odd because I've been listening to Mike since his first day on the air with Brien Straw on the weekend.  Mike was pretty good in all of positions except the original Mad Radio. Now that I'm done stroking Mike, his reliance on Pro Football Focus is disgusting.  Everything about football is not stats, some things stats can't explain.  I like the way Mike trolls like me.  Yes Mike trolls, he looks for shit on Social Media for show content.  
All in all, I wanted to show Mad Radio some love.  They have a good thing going on and they won't be able to please everyone
