Brian Bernardi of SMU Stars in The Dream Team Documentary!



Finally saw The Dream Team documentary a few nights ago. If you need a link for the movie it is below. Hopefully the NBA wont pull it down. The movie is fantastic, motivating, captivating, and a lot of other positive adjectives. The most interesting part is Brian Bernardi, formerly from Xaverian High School and currently SMU ( Southern Methodist University ), is in the movie! For a high schooler at the time to be part of an international documentary has to be awesome! What is even more unique was part of the Chris Mullin closing clip, he was in it. Photos are provided by Sir Charles of Bernardi. No relationship to Sir Charles of Barkley.

Felix Balamou Going to Work at 2012 NIKE IS8 Spring Classic Semifinals



Felix Balamou has been improving since the first time The Basketball Diary has seen him and that was 2011 NIKE IS8 Fall Classic Semis. You didn't even notice him then. Only Chris Obekpa. Little by little the boy has been improving. In January Felix and Quenton DeCosey went at it between OSNA vs St Joseph Metuchen. Let see how far he can grow at St John's University this fall under Coach Steve Lavin.

Terrence Samuel to Shamiek Sheppard for the Half Court Alley Oop at 2012 IS8 Nike Spring Classic Championship



Love these guys from South Shore High School along with Wayne Martin. Here is a alley oop from the timeline during the finals. Now if Terrence Samuel, Shamiek Sheppard, and Wayne Martin can get over the hump this upcoming fall in the PSAL that would be nice. Only thing holding all three back is a missing jump shot.

Jordan Dickerson Dunks on Chris Obekpa Twice at 2012 NIKE IS8 Spring Classic Semifinals



Jordan Dickerson is too young to drink but he should have a Dos Equis because he is now currently The Most Interesting Man in the World. Dunking on Chris Obekpa aint easy. It's like winning the lottery. Just ask Shane Rector
