The Lakers want to ship in premiere point guard Jason Kidd to Los Angeles. In exchange, they're willing to send Kwame Brown, Jordan Farmar, and Vladimir Radmanovic, along with a couple of draft picks. The Nets however doesn't want to acquire Radmanovic's long term contract.

The Denver Nuggets are also in the hunt for Kidd. The Nuggets would give up a big man (which the Nets badly need) in either Nene, or Kenyon Martin, plus Linas Kleiza and J.R. Smith.

Company of Ateneo Dancers, a blessing to me from God

Last December 1, 2007, the Company of Ateneo Dancers finished 2nd in the Skechers Street Dance Battle held at the Araneta Coliseum. I am very proud of these kids (yes, I am becoming old, thus the term kids). While they turn to me for advice and guidance in dancing, I have learned a lot from them about life. I have been through struggles these past few months, but being with them and talking to them has been a big help to me.

I was with them when all the internal turmoil happened, and I saw how they embraced all of these and just lifted all struggles to Bestfriend. Instead of crumbling down, they hung on to Him. They faced every challenge that came their way with no fear. Is it because they are so courageous? No. It is because they know, that He's got their backs. And it just reminded me of how we do it in Allstars.

I was down, struggling, but He gave me another family. A family that embraced me, especially when my other family, the Allstars, were still in the United States.

I am very proud of you CADs! You showed everyone last Saturday that winning was not as important as inspiring others. You showed everyone that the most important thing is to please Him, and no one else, not even ourselves. Now, God has rewarded you with a 1st runner-up finish, which you should use to inspire others. Continue what you are doing! God Bless!

Jamario Moon: Underrated Rookie

The Toronto Raptors rookie Jamario Moon is an excellent pick-up for the team. The Raptors signed Moon to a 2-year deal last July and Moon has definitely proved his worth to Toronto. Moon isn'y a big scorer but he is contributing well to the Raptors' game. Jamario Moon is averaging over a steal and a block per game.
Jamario Moon
Jamario Moon entered the NBA Draft in 2001 but was undrafted. He joined the Toronto Raptors summer camp and impressed Bryan Colangelo thus securing a 2-year contract.

The Chicago Bulls beat the Charlotte Bobcats today and registered their first Back-to-Back victories this season. Ben Gordon had 34 points and Luol Deng added 29, but it was Ben Wallace who had a monster game, with 10 points and 19 rebounds.
