Kobe Bryant Explains How The Warriors Work To Weaken Opponents’ Defenses (Video)

Communication is key. The confusion the Warriors create by their play confounds opponents attempts to communicate with each other as they attempt to keep up. Out of touch, out of step, opponents end up out of the playoffs. Ask San Antonio.

And there it is. A lot to take in, right? Well, the Mamba might be able to break it down. He’s pretty good at breaking things down (like defenses). Watch above.

In the next episode of Canvas, Kobe Bryant looks at the Warriors’ rare style and how it breaks down their opponents.

Liking ESPN’s ’70s stylized documentary presentation for this episode. The Golden Democracy. Cool.

Philadelphia 76’er Joel Embiid Makes A Play For Rihanna At The Bar (Video)


I mean… look at myself!

Hahaaaaa! You know how some athletes might clam up, play tough or off-brush when talk show hosts hint at blatantly push a love-life line of questionning? That is NOT Joel Embiid’s problem…AT ALL!

Shoot your shot, player! Not mad at you. Of course, you might consider that Jamele Hill is looking pretty nice and Kelly Rowland is hella sexy (as always); and they’re right there.

Because we’re considering it. Yeaaahhh, considering all that right now…

Sports: 2 Chainz Shows Out On Kevin Garnett’s Home Court At Area 21 (Video)

HILARIOUS!!

Remember when 2 Chainz took on The Human Highlight Reel aka Dominique Wilkins? Well, go back to that post here… AFTER you watch what we have here above… because Titty Boi 2 Pointer is balling with the Big Leaguers again. And he is giving them enough to where the NBA’ers have to give him some talk back. Get ’em 2 Chainz. Rep the ATL well!

That tape – “Putting It On KG’s Azz” (pause) – is gonna be that fire (um, pause again, just in case). Hahahaaaa!

Bonus behind the scenes trash talk from the pro-ballers after the jump. A whole other thing. Really good though.

Ice Cube’s BIG3 Basketball League Is Coming To Barclays Center This Summer (Video)

Okay, this could be a score for FS1 on Monday nights. Loving the names of the teams for BIG3 Basketball at Barclays (after the jump). Now, if they can avoid the XFL trap of getting too gimmicky with a game folks love… just make exciting basketball… not reinventing the game, just eliminating the lame from that lane… we got something! Plus, handchecking and fairplay freethrows.

Watching Cube and Rappaport break it down in conversation might pique your curiosity to tune in June.

The Penn Relays 2017 by Jamaine Mungo For JAYFORCE.COM (Video)

A post shared by JayforceDotCom (@jayforcedotcom) on

Posted this little snip so you all can see what it is like to be in the midst of massive pure human energy on level 12! Anyone who might have seen the subject of this post and thought, “Penn Relays… so that’s a big deal?” YES! It’s a big tings a Gwan!!! Peace to the homie “Maine” for sharing this firsthand experience for this piece, too.

Began running track my freshman year in high school, attended Maple Shade High School, New Jersey. My events were 400m, 800m and the 4×400 meter relay. Along with my teammates, we always trained hard and wanted to win. Our mindset was that hard work pays off and it certainly did. The start of outdoor track & field started in March and we all knew that once April approached it would be time for the Penn Relays. We knew that once we stepped on that track at Penn Relays, it would be “Game Time”. It is an indescribable feeling of pure energy, excitement, and adrenaline once you step on to the track at Penn Relays.

After high school, I continued my track career at Virginia State University running the 400m, 800m and 4x400m events. Throughout my time at VSU, I ran the 4x400m, sprint medley and distant medley relay events at the Penn Relays. Every year that I’ve run at the Penn Relays, there was that same electrifying feeling was always there and I always ran my personal best time.

There is an overall natural feeling of excitement for any athlete from high school, collegiate to olympian who steps onto the track at the University of Pennsylvania for the Penn Relays. A majority of athletes run their fastest times at the track that is known as a “fast track”. The Penn Relay carnival kicks off on a Tuesday and goes until Saturday. Athletes range from all age groups from middle school, high school, college, Olympians, and masters groups whom still compete at the golden age of 75+ running the 100m dash.

This is the largest Track & Field competition that is hosted where you can see all forms of athletes from all different age groups, various events and guaranteed to see some fast times on the track from the world’s best athletes.

So, you got a stadium packed with 90,000 fans – cheering, shouting, blowing horns, rattling all kinds of noisemakers and reveling with each other –
transferring that energy to the athletes who are now overcharged to run their fastest. Tradition, excellence, positive potential energy turned kinetic in the best ways. The Penn Relays started in April 21st, 1895 and is showing no signs of slowing down. It continues to get larger each year. The last race this year ended early Saturday evening, and just like that, it is over… until next year! – Jamaine

Hit the jump for a couple of images of Jamaine Mungo from Penn Relays Years Ago.

The 2017 NFL Draft Experience: Takeaways From JAYFORCE.COM Sports Team In Philadelphia

A post shared by JayforceDotCom (@jayforcedotcom) on

The 2017 NFL Draft In Philadelphia was the 1st time the NFL Draft would be held outdoors. The NFL draft in Philadelphia drew over 250,000 people with plenty of activities for adults & children a like as fans packed Philly’s Benjamin Franklin parkway up to Philadelphia’s Art Museum aka the “Rocky Steps” made famous by Sylvester Stallone.

There were a wide variety of activities in the park before & during the NFL draft that were free of charge most likely leveraged by the variety of corporate sponsors participating. Zip lines, kids events, & even a Lombardi trophy was on hand for fans to gawk or flick it up with.

A few things we noticed included the price of beers that were $12 a can which made it more difficult for anyone to get too rowdy & drunk during the festivities. Although the beers were expensive, the purified water at various stations throughout the park was free.

Public transportation from the suburbs & back on Philadelphia’s Regional trains was free for anyone who stepped foot on board. Philadelphia did an excellent job hosting the NFL Draft outdoors on the parkway.


Not only did it turn out successful, but it also allowed the NFL to break attendance records for the NFL Draft as various people were moved in & out of the seating area for a chance to witness the draft up close. Check out more video, pics, & thoughts from the Jayforce.com sports crew about the experience below…..

‘Close Range’ With Ray Allen (Documentary)

Very interesting tidbit from Ray’s wife in there: What do the ultimate competitors do when they retire? That fire has to go into something. Fortunately for the NBA ultimate shooter, Ray Allen is a golfer… with some competitive pro-athlete retirees that golf. GQ covers that and much more in such a short docu-series episode.

Ray Allen is a living legend. He’s a ten-time NBA All-Star who has won two championships, in 2008 with the Boston Celtics and 2013 with the Miami Heat. He holds the NBA’s record for most three-pointers made, with 2,973 buckets. Since his retirement in 2016, Ray has shifted his focus – to fatherhood, golf, and an organic fast-food restaurant. Take a look into the life of a champion, and his obsession with greatness.

Lakers Vs. Celtics (ESPN 30-For-30 Trailer)

We had no respect for ’em… none… zero!

“Lakers Vs. Celtics.” Bird vs. Johnson. Respect earned, but NO LOVE LOST! NOWWWW we go to school… Old school!!

Back in the day, in the ’80s, there were no damned exclusive ‘banana boat’ excursions or summer b-ball buddy camps with NBA rivals getting together. F**k no! There was PRIDE. There was WINNING. There was HATE – for the other team, and worse, for losing to them!

Purely rhetorical: How do you feel about today’s basketball? Are the rivalries fiery? Is it easy to get out of bed the next morning when your team loses? Do you think it really hurts your team’s players to their hearts when they lose?

Yeah. Bet money today’s game is nowhere near as raw as it was back then. And this ESPN 30-For-30 will show you real rivalry was lived by two of the NBA’s elite franchises.

Comedy: Who Wins When Jimmy Fallon Lip Sync Battles Shaquille O’Neal? (Video)

We all win!

Okay, so you read the title and you think: Shaq used to rap and he was always clowning during NBA All-Star Weekend game intros and hamming it up for the crowds… AND Fallon has done tons of musical fun stuff on his show. Ought to be pretty entertaining. And you’d be absolutely RIGHT!

Jimmy faces off with Shaquille O’Neal, with a surprise appearance by Pitbull, in a hilarious lip sync-off to songs like Bobby Brown’s “My Prerogative,” Ariana Grande and John Legend’s “Beauty and the Beast” and House of Pain’s “Jump Around.”

So, surprise: Pitbull! But what most of us probably perpetually underestimate is just how far and fast Jimmy will ‘go there’ to get laughs and wows from the audience. Case in point, this clip. Hahaaaa!

Former NBA Player Kenny Anderson’s New Documentary Film “Mr. Chibbs” (Trailer)

One of the best pure point guards in the NBA.

That’s Kenny Anderson. And that’s a hell of an intro for a basketball player… drunk driving, womanizing, babymaking machine. And balancing it all, reflecting on and coming to grips with it all, and the journey forward as a sober, responsible man and father… ought to make for one hell of a documentary.

Yep. Call the movie “Mr Chibbs.” Looks like a slam dunk for a must watch.

Plus we get Dr. J speaking about ‘The Rucker.’ Good interview. All that and a pair of Converse. Philly!

Charles Oakley Can Stand The Heat, So He Is In The Kitchen (Video)

Peep game… Soon enough, Charles Oakley is gonna be ‘holding court’ in the kitchen! And it’s looking like opponents won’t wanna mess with him there either. Haaa!

No ‘rough stuff’ per se. And the above video is just a rough cut for an old trailer that hints at what is to come. Who new Oak – the former NBA bruiser baller turned courtside cusser – had such flair, debonair (shooting his shot at the Honey next to him) and skills with the whisk and grill? Oh, and in case you were wondering why Oakley would want to cook instead of hire someone for that…

A lot of people don’t like to cook it the way you asked. You have it on the menu, and you say you want it one way, but a lot of chefs do it the way they want to do it. They get it wrong. I’m not mad at them, but when you wait 20, 30 minutes and it’s not right, a lot of times that’s disrespectful to me. When I cook, 95% of the time I know my food is gonna come out great.
Charles Oakley

For now, the title of the series being pitched is “Oak In The Kitchen,” and scenes for a demo reel to show to networks were filmed over the summer at the New Jersey home of Golden Era emcee Masta Ace and his wife (Leschea). All that throwback flavor involved for a potential cooking show. Nice! Hope it ‘pans’ out (grrrroan).

(Shout to @SoulPhoodie for this story.)

Raise Up: The World is Our Gym (Trailer)

You know the crazy pull-ups and push-ups, frontwards and reversed, with acrobatics and flair thrown in there, that you’ve seen them on movie screens and Internet spots? Well, those are street calisthenics… and they have become a movement and a movie. Check it.

An underground urban fitness movement risks losing its identity as a social tool as it rapidly becomes a new international sport.
Rain Bennett

What you should take away: Parallels to Hip-Hop. Something else comes up from the streets, lives around the way, gets blown up and goes worldwide (good) and commercial (not so good in some ways); and the culture is worried that its true and best self (e.g. its essence) will be lost.

Watch the trailer.
