Starring Jeremy Lin, “The Last Pick” is a short film about helping others. It was shot and produced this past summer to support the Jeremy Lin Foundation which serves youth, by providing hope, empowerment and leadership development.
The video demonstrates that when we give to others, we often benefit in return and it usually happens when we least expect it, but need it the most. It’s great that Jeremy’s efforts off the court continues to be the real strength of what Linsanity means.

Artist Michael Marsicano from NYC created some great storyboard pieces for the 30 For 30 “Benji” documentary. Which is set in early 1980’s South Side Chicago and chronicles the rise and tragic fall of high school basketball star Ben Wilson, who was murdered the day before his senior season. The documentary spliced together his illustrations with a mix of interviews and game footage to tell the narrative.

So far 2013 JaVale McGee is pretty darn entertaining.
A few days ago McGee hit his first three that was accompanied by a strange culinary celebration. Now a few more days into the new year, Pierre displayed his game shoes that has the tagline from Quentin Tarantino‘s latest movie Django Unchained. I guess he really liked the film.
On his left shoe it says “My name is Django” and on his right shoe it says “The D is silent“. Please keep it rolling Pierre. The Internet needs more.
I bet you didn’t know that Jamaal Wilkes made his feature-film debut as Nathaniel “Cornbread” Hamilton in the 1975 basketball themed movie, Cornbread, Earl and Me. A young Laurence Fishburne and the always cool Thalmus Rasulala are also in the film.
