It’s called “The Basketball Tournament,” and the simplicity is the winner-take-all $1 million format. Basically, as long as you’re not involved with the NBA at the time, you’re good to go, with the 97-team event opening July 10, the latter stages to be televised by ESPN. From a Heat perspective, among those to surface for the event include 2006 championship point guard Jason Williams, former Heat bit players Jamario Moon and Mike James, and, yes, even Smush Parker. Williams heads a Gators alumni team that also is scheduled to feature Erik Murphy, Matt Walsh, Alex Tyus and Lee Humphrey. Former Heat guard Mike Bibby has also been added to that mostly Gators squad.
Vince Carter, who’s 38 now, developed the habit in recent years of taking a cab to road games with a coach to shoot at 3 pm. This is about an hour and a half earlier than anybody else. Mike James, a player I have worked with for nive years, wakes up at 5 am to find a yoga studio in the city where he’s playing to practice Bikram yoga before shootaround. I changed his life about four months ago when I explained to him what Uber was so he wasn’t constantly wondering if he would be able to catch a cab. I gave my client John Lucas III the nickname “I have to go” because of his innate ability to get up from any table in any city at anytime and simply look at whoever he might be with (he’s done this to me 100 times) and say “I have to go” and head right back to his hotel room. Like if John was in the movie Hangover right before they clinked the glasses and then the next scene is them waking up in the hotel room with a Tiger walking around. John would have looked at the group and he’d say 10 times out of 10 “I have to go” and he’d leave.
James enthusiastically added that believes in the D-League. While in previous seasons, the vet has had to find his way and be a teacher of sorts amongst the younger prospects in the league, he has benefitted this year from playing alongside fellow NBA alums like Damion James, Renaldo Balkman, and Doron Lamb. “It helps a lot,” James said. “It’s easier to play the game when you have bonafide veterans playing with you, instead of guys who come in and just hope to contribute by simply by scoring. Playing with these guys makes it easier for me.”
