This my guy from the Ill State U with a quick breakdown on why Chicago is the way it is due to systemic racism…
Critical Mass is an article written by Brian Gorman. It appears in the September 2020 Edition of the Metropolis Newspaper (https://www.metropolisnewspaper.com/s…). Video was styled by Diverse City (www.enterthecity.com)
had to get out a bit and see what my city was looking like and it was kinda ghost town-ish…. especially the airports…but I at least got me 2 helpings of Italian Fiesta while in town (and actually brought some home and some poundcake lol) Continue reading →
Chicago legend Tim Hardaway joins the fellas this week on Knuckleheads with Quentin Richardson and Darius Miles. Tim takes us through his journey growing up in Chicago, getting his handles on the city sidewalks, heading off to UTEP, and creating the ‘UTEP two-step’. Laugh along as Tim tells us how Don Nelson snatched him late in the draft and then just how confident he got after his first All-Star Game. Hear about the creation of Run TMC and learn why that scoring phenomenon lasted for only two seasons. Then Tim gets into his Miami years, what it was like ballin’ in the mid ‘90s, and how great it feels to have his jersey retired by the Heat. Tim then discusses Tim Jr. playing in the league and tells a hilarious story about the last time they’ll ever play one-on-one. Tim Hardaway is no joke but he’s got a lot of ‘em! You won’t want to miss this one.
It’s the one we’ve been waiting for. That walking bucket, Will Bynum, finally drops by to talk shop on Knuckleheads with Quentin Richardson and Darius Miles. Just some backstory: Bynum is the reason for this podcast. We wanted to highlight players that the casual fan might not know, but who the NBA community reveres and honors. Will the Thrill is that hooper. We hear about his start in Chicago, the myth being made. His move to Lute Olson’s Arizona and why he left for Georgia Tech. The hours he spent on his craft. His overseas journey. Finally busting into the NBA. To his new life as a trainer. Will talks about the game like the craftsman he is. But don’t let his humble nature fool you. The man is a basketball savant and a teacher. He helped D-Rose get his game back solid. He can also hit you with the oral history of how the Shammgod traveled the world and back again. You can’t miss this one. It’s extra-extra-special. Will means everything to Chicago hoops. His impact is felt throughout the city. It’s an honor to have Will Bynum join the show.
Ja’Mal Green, the 24-year-old activist protesting JPMorgan Chase Bank’s dismal lending record in Chicago’s Black communities, has now been dumped as a customer and barred by the bank from all Chase property. Continue reading →
It’s funny although indigenous people always get called violent and so on, it’s because other groups project their bullshit on us because in a lot of respects, they don’t understand why more of us aren’t bent on vengence and wanton self-destruction like they are. But nuff talk…. I’ll let the images speak for themselves…..
Ground zero for COVID-19 is Chicago’s Cook County Jail. Hundreds of detainees and at least 200 correctional officers are currently infected. Prisoners, guards and other first responders in Chicago are without personal protection equipment (PPE)– gloves, masks and the like — making the situation even more deadly. People are dying, even though a Black owned company in Illinois literally has millions of masks available. The city, county and state refuse to talk to the owner. Continue reading →
