Mark King (a.k.a. Zeke) will be at the Chicago combine. Like Lance Armstrong at the Tour de France, Mark will be providing updates via Twitter:
So, whether you are interested in the PBL or just a fan of Mark King, stayed tuned for his take on the combine. For updated news and info on the Florida Flight, visit:
I have given lots of compliments, (when they are deserved), I have had nothing but praise for the entire way the rochester runs their organization. I have always been complimentary to battle creek, and I was an original suporter of the PBL when it first started.
I think they have good intentions, and are trying. haven't always agreed with the methods 100 percent, but I don't agree with anything 100 percent.
By the way, I was pulling for pittsburgh when they were in the cba. They had three players I knew very well in training camp a couple of years ago. But I am a ronnie Fields fan, so I switched to Minot!
As far as the Xplosion, I still miss them, even though we are getting another pro(which I'm still cautious about). Despite their problems(X), I have fond memories of being at their games.
As I said, I am a nerd who is stuck in the seventies. (wheres my disco shirt?)
Mark and I have a lot in common. We love God and basketball. He has visions of being an owner and there is nothing wrong with that. He has worked hard to get opportunities and that is great too.
Hes not robbing gas stations, or doing drugs, he just loves basketball, and wants to be involved in it. Nothing wrong with that.
He has a lot of passion for the game, this I know, and again that means he and I have more in common. In life all you can do is give your best effort, and certainly Mark will give his best effort.
Man I am feeling philisophical tonight !
Just thought I'd drop a quick note before I turn it in for the night. Hope to see you at the camp tomorrow, NSF! Give me a nudge if you're there! I have, in fact, been tweeting my trip so far. My twitter account loads on our http://www.flighthoops.com website as well, so you can get all the updates (if you're interested). It's in the bottom left corner. I thought it would be cool to give folks who wanted it a semi-behind-the-scenes look.
I'm looking forward to getting some good ball in tomorrow. I'm also hoping to see Ernest play well. He didn't get the shot he wanted in Buffalo last season. Hopefully he can build on it and accomplish some of his goals this coming season in the PBL, and be set to go for the Flight in 2011. FYI - Chuck Reed might be on his way to Germany, so he opted not to attend this camp.
Well, no baby to worry about tonight (although I miss her terribly). I should get some good sleep though. Who knows...maybe I will walk away from this camp with an unexpected offer to play. Stranger things have happened!

I would hope that I would have not a single bit of talent left and could say, 'I used everything you gave me.'"
