Go
So you’re in a life a death situation that has to be decided by a one on one basketball game. Your worse enemy versus you. But instead of you two playing it out, you have to pick one current NBA player to take your spot. The coin flip is held and somehow your enemy gets the first pick. In turn, of course, he picks Kobe Bryant to represent him. Who do you pick as your player in hopes that you make it out of this game alive?

Don’t be shook

Okori sent me this question a couple of days ago. They’ll be three this week as Cevidence has a nice topic and TSF writer CinQue will post one as well. On subsequent Fridays we’ll post one from a reader and one from the TSF writer collective.

Friday Fire 2: What Does Barack Obama’s Win In Iowa Mean?

Posted in Barack Obama, Friday Fire, Hilary Clinton, Iowa Caucus, John Edwards, John Kerry on January 4, 2008 by mizzo

 *If any of you have a Friday Fire topic you want discussed, hit one of us up via email.

As Obama wins in Iowa amid a huge democratic voter turnout (approx. 230,000 which doubled republican voters) you will hear how much of a historical win this is for Blacks.

When considering the initial groundswell of reports worldwide, is this the case?

Does it matter?

Watch closely how the race is reported from here on in. This could get interesting, but don’t bet the house on Obama even when considering Kerry (Edwards second) won Iowa in ’04.

*Relevance elicited amending the original question, but do comment on that topic.

Is it “The Dunk” delivered by John Starks over Horace Grant, Michael Jordan, and Scottie Pippen in the 1993 playoffs? Or some other dunk?

Friday Fire: How Do You Want Your Sports Reporting? Mistaken or Blurrrrred?

The future of sports reporting?

More and more athletes are using their individual voices to connect with fans. The negative effect of money only cultured reporting has created an athlete backlash. Seemingly, pros are growing weary of journalists having control over their athletic legacies and are doing something about it. Gilbert Arenas has one of the best blogs around because of his cool wit and unapologetic sense of straight up realness. His words will not be spoken or written out of context because he alone–at least through his blog–controls what we will and will not know.

I love it.

What’s next? Is it time to “blow up the spot”?

Friday Fire: Would You Take the Atlanta Falcons Job If You Were Mike Singletary?

You have the chance to make an impact in a hotbed of Black sports fans going through it right now with the absence of Mike Vick. Arthur Blank would be a fool to not bring you in for an interview.The interim hire of Emmitt Thomas then wouldn’t seem like such a token move to shut fans up.

Light it up sista. It’s time for our own celebration!

Black athletes are being vilified to no end lately. When athletes are up for Hall of Fame induction, present scrutiny will be part of the voting process and will doom their inclusion based on public perception.

What can minorities do as a group to ensure their own celebration of professional athletic exploits?
