DEE-1 “the UnDefeated” Theme Song Official Music Video / The Undefeated Website Brought to you by ESPN

I love this. I have so much respect for the brother Dee-1, so it was especially dope to see this premiere on ESPN. Then as I looked into it, theundefeated.com is actually owned by ESPN, which should drastically help this video and the actual website with getting more exposure. The Undefeated site will help to explore the intersection of race, sports and culture, which doesn’t happen enough so I’m glad to see that ESPN is making an effort to create some traction in this area. And Dee-1 is literally the…

Michael Johnson, 400 Meter World Record Video/ Throwback Post

Now that my college track and field career is over as an athlete, I couldn’t help to think about how incredibly slow I am, at least compared to the 400 meter world record time set by Michael Johnson.

The world’s best basketball dribbler, Patrick Robinson aka Pat the Roc, comes through with an inspiring video that talks about the struggle and hard work that he went through to get where he currently is.

Nate Robinson dribbles under Sebastian Telfair during game/ Motivational Video

Wow, this is probably one of the best plays so far during this NBA season. Nate Robinson is clearly one of the most athletic players in the league standing only 5’9 and can put the ball between his legs in mid-air and dunk on a regulated hoop. So clearly other players are aware of his hops. So during the Bulls vs Phoenix game, defender Sebastian Telfair completely fell for Robinson’s head fake, jumping completely off the ground. So Robinson, being the versatile player he is, doesn’t try to shoot over…
