With my eyes focused down towards the hardwood floor, I placed one foot after the other inside my Jordan slides.  As I began to close up my gym bag, I heard someone several feet away say, “Oh, he’s getting ready to leave.  Maybe next time.” I had just finished running some full court games with […]

With two of the “healthiest” soft tacos on my tray that Taco Bell could put together, I grabbed my drink and slid into a one of the many loudly colored booths that make up the in house eating area.  It had been years since I had taken a seat in the most famous fast food […]

I thought it might take another 3-4 weeks, but it won’t. I’M BACK!

What keeps you moving forward?  What keeps you going? I’ve got bruises all over my leg from having instruments pressed into and across my skin.  After a couple of days, just as the contusions begin to heal, the tools are reapplied and at times the pain is excruciating.  Having something that causes a bruise done […]

Dear MJ:

When you came into the league (NBA) in 1984 I was seven years old. My big focus was getting to know my new classmates and learning how to read small books with a few words in a big font on each page. You went on to win Rookie of the Year with a stat line of 28.2ppg, 6.5rpg, 5.9apg, and 2.4spg. I had a knack for being able to spell and led my class in gold stars.

The goal, as you know, is for me to get a game of 1-on-1 vs. Michael Jordan.  I know, I know, not a whole lot of hooping going on here lately at mevsMJ.com.  That’s what happens when I get injured and the doc says be patient Kenny! That doesn’t mean I haven’t been working diligently […]

The National Basketball Association or NBA as us hoopsters call it (haha) kicked off its regular season two nights ago and this year my feeling going into the basketball season is different. Actually how I feel about this NBA season is familiar, I just haven’t felt it in sometime. Over 20 years ago my then […]
