Welcome to the blog of B Daht Obama! I've taken a new approach to MY blogs - I write letters to people. Hopefully one day some of the people can actually read the letters I write. If you have an idea of a letter you'd like me to write to someone (they don't HAVE to be in Sports) send it to theescore@yahoo. Hope you enjoy, and comments are STRONGLY encouraged!
NBA - Summer TV

Who was it that said Tyler Hansbrough wouldn’t make a good NBA player?
I know it’s early to speculate his greatness just 2 Summer League games into his NBA Career, but Tyler is doing things the critics said he couldn’t. He’s hitting the 3 ball, he’s putting the ball on the floor, and he’s showing competitive athleticism. In 2 games, he has 40 points and is creating strong mismatches in the post and on the perimeter. Of course Tyler is finishing at the free throw line, evident because he is getting fouled constantly. Brandon Rush and Roy Hibbert are also on the Indiana Summer League team. Other notable players in the Summer League: Oklahoma City – James Harden, Russell Westbrook and Shaun Livingstone; NJ/PHI Chris Douglas-Roberts, Jrue Holiday and Orlando’s: Jeremy Pargo (younger brother of Jannero).
There ARE Sports to watch! They should be televised!
Some of the same people playing in the Orlando Summer League were participating in March Madness – which means, there’s a high level of basketball being played, and we should be able to view it! There are 3 games today, 3 games tomorrow and 3 more on Friday –why aren’t they televised!? There are NFL training camps and workouts popping up all over the country – there should be camera crews there taping for the world to see.
