At the Buzzer: Episode No. 14 Review

This past installment of my NBA radio show was bound to go smoothly. After all, there were no pounding thunderstorms on my way to the radio station, I actually had a key with me to get into the building and ... I had a plan.

With 45 minutes for final show preparations, and having already coordinated with producer John, I was eager for the show to begin. With July being so heavy with NBA news and developments, I have yet to run into any lack of content issues. My opening segment focused on setting up Team USA's scrimmage last Saturday in Las Vegas, and previewing this USA roster and the FIBA World Championships in Turkey next month.

Four years ago, Team USA was stunned by Greece in the semifinals, and eight years ago Team USA finished a mind-boggling sixth in the World Championships. Only one player from the gold-medal-winning 1994 team, Shaquille O'Neal, remains an active NBA player, and and each of the 12 players from the 2008 USA gold-medal team has withdrawn from this year's team.

I discussed how Kevin Durant was just five years old in 1994, yet is now the new face of USA basketball.

St. Louis native David Lee (finger injury), who was recently traded to the Golden State Warriors, suffered an injury to the middle finger on his right hand last week during practice in Las Vegas. He will wear a splint for six weeks and is expected to make a complete recovery prior to the start of training camp in September. However, Lee will not be playing in Turkey, unfortunately.

The fact that Celtics PG Rajon Rondo is not a lock to make Team USA's roster was discussed; Rondo is not a solid perimeter shooter, lacks positional flexibility and has incredible backcourt competition on this team.

It has been 16 years (1994) since Team USA grabbed the gold medal in these championships and Saint Louis University head coach Rick Majerus was an assistant coach under Don Nelson during the 1994 games. Coach Majerus was kind enough to record a 20-minute segment for the show, and we talked all about Team USA, his experiences with Don Nelson and Saint Louis University's decision to play at Duke this season.

Our final segment featured Nuggets writer Jeremy Wagner, who helped to break down the current situation regarding Carmelo Anthony’s potential contact extension in Denver. Other topics going on around the Denver Nuggets includes head coach George Karl battling throat cancer, and ex-Missouri star Linus Kleiza leaving Denver for the Toronto Raptors.

I will have my Podcasts going soon, and hope to have studio-quality interviewing methods at my home office very soon. After one week off, we will be back every Saturday and I look forward to it. For everything related to the show, please click here.

  3. Comment by Match Your Body With Your Fashion Handbag:

    Generally women cannot leave the building without bringing a purse or a handbag with them. Once all, carrying a purse along is a suitable way of lugging loose alteration, a mobile, a compact, a comb, a powder, keys, a vial of perfume, reading material, and all the other stuff that women cannot leave home without. Toting a purse or a handbag saves women from having stuffed and bulky pockets, if they have pockets at all. However, as suitable as a handbag is in serving us carry stuff around, what many women fail to realize is that a handbag or a purse is a vogue assistant. So, because it is a fashion co-conspirator, it must effect with the balance of the Clothing. More importantly than that, when you choose a purse or a handbag to go with your clothing, you must pick one that must match the type of Figure that you bear. You may not be aware of it, but after someone looks on you, the firstly thing about your clothing that this someone would be likely to notice is your handbag. Depending on what kind of handbag you are carrying, you may be drawing attention to the curves of your figure that you could prefer to Hide. It is all approaching balance. Right like every piece of clothing or fashion accessory that you wear, your purse must meet your figure appear balanced. It must screen what you may want to hide and underline what you could want to highlight. One of the doctrine that you must be following whilst picking out a purse to match your clothes is that larger handbags go with amply padded Figures, while small purses go off with slighter bodies. If you are a Gentle person, the type of purse that you must be using is small. If you wear plus sizes, you must go off for larger handbags. That is important part of the basic doctrine that you must observe whilst choosing a handbag. So, which type of purse must proceed with which type of trend? Free with the principle on size on choosing handbags, if you are small with just a slight figure, you must go off for a handbag that is small and is something that you can hold near to your figure. By no means ever buy a sizeable purse as you will drown in it. Holding a big purse if your body is small would make you look as if the purse is carrying you, and not the other way around. Women with top-heavy bodies, on the other hand, would want to call attention away from their high figures. If your build is top-heavy, the handbag to you need is something that has long straps, something that you can stand close to your hips. Remember to persuade a large purse to balance out your figure. By no means ever aid a small handbag if you have a plus size body. As we said before, toting a small purse will only call attention to your size If you have the exact hourglass body, with your bust in unison to your hips and with a definite waist, you are to be envied. You can lug along just about several type of purse or handbag there is. But next again, you must still be conscious regarding the way your purse balances out your body. Permanently get a handbag that is just the right size compared to your figure. So, if you are on the small and lean side, go for a small bag. If you are sizeable and really curved, a big bag will work for you. Always remember that your purse or handbag is a vogue accessory.

  4. Comment by Louis Vuitton Monogram Quatrefoil Engraved Cufflinks:

    It is nice to be surrounded with beautiful stuff. Being a Libra, I am influenced heavily by the Venus, the Goddess of Beauty. I love seeing things that are eye-catching, charming and appealing. I guess it is innate in me already to see the beauty in anything that I see. I really do not mind if that particular thing is not unique. What is important is that I get to see its natural state of being simply attractive. Does my attraction to beauty, connected to places and to people as well? I will have to reiterate that my Venusian eyes are intrinsic. So, I will have to say, that I am definitely drawn to places and people that are gorgeous and glamorous. I fully understand that beauty is skin deep. I fully agree with that. There is this thing that we call preferences. I have been immersed in a place for more than a month where everything is third world. It was a great spiritual experience for me. I have learned to be more considerate and be less materialistic. Now, what has this got to do with my intended Louis Vuitton engraved cufflinks ? It is actually a gift that I am planning to give to my mentor in that third world country. I wanted him to experience the simple pleasures of owning something that is dainty and elegant. Since there are engravable cufflinks, I can just simply have either the Monogram Quatrefoil Cufflinks. Or Fleur Quatrefoil designs. If there is something that will remind him of my flamboyant ways, that will be these cufflinks. More than the beauty that they offer, it is the real beauty of the metanoia that I had, during my immersion, on that third world nation.
