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.

Parker made an appearance on Highly Questionable with Dan Le Batard recently and was asked about Kobe. Although Smush was clearly tired of the subject, he did say the following about the five-time NBA champion: “He told me one day at practice — I tried to talk to him outside of basketball about football. And he looked at me in practice and was dead serious and said, ‘You can’t talk to me. You need more accolades under your belt before you come talk to me.”

Ex-L.A. Lakers player Smush Parker is adamant … he did NOT slug a 16-year-old high school kid in the face during a pickup game in NYC this week — claiming it was just a hard foul. Parker has been under fire after reports surfaced that he got into it with prep star Wolfgang Novogratz last week — and punched the kid in the face during a heated exchange. But Parker’s manager James Hunt says it’s all B.S. — claiming there WAS a hard foul between the two … but no punch was ever thrown. “Smush did not punch him in the face. It wasn’t no assault or anything like that. It was a hard foul. He didn’t hit anybody.”
