Nike HyperFuse Supreme | Orange | 2012 | Coming Back Out

Bought these in 2012 and played a whack outside back then and have not worn them since.  I put them away for the future.  I’m going to start wearing them again on the courts and at the gym.  Love how light they are.  Picked up size 14 for these ones.

Going to really step up my “hoops” game and get ready for the summer outdoor season.

so nice to be able to be off work when she is playing in a tourney.  i got to watch 3 games as the bolts played 3 other schools and lost each game.  the other teams had some players that were very skilled for her grade level.  her pg was really good at fishing into the lane where she would turn it over.

boo got some buckets and i can’t wait for her to go to D’OC and have a real coach and have real practices and play more games than just one tourney for the season and play 3 games.

I remember when she was much smaller for the Bolts and I was lucky to be able to catch a game where she took it to the rack below:

Ball season outside is coming to a close.  Last night the dew on the court made it slippery by around 7:30.  Played for a hour.  When I got there… we played some two on two.  I wish I was playing indoors in a league.  With work and my schedule being all over the place… I can’t join a men’s league.  Hopefully I can find some good runs at the YMCA or over at Flemming at the Rec Ctr.

Two On Two | Simcoe & Bethune Courts

Aug 20th: Played ball for 4 hours last night.  I had the chance to play about 4 games of full court and then two long sessions of “52” that I came out mostly on top.  That switched to 1 on 1… where I was handed about 4 straight losses.  Some games were close like 11-7… but some where bad.  My partner is way better at me and being 19 years old and can drive and shoot… made my work guarding him tough.

Some clips of the full court games are below.  The camera didn’t capture the action at the other end of the court so I just put some buckets together.  I missed about 5 good looks…. but to post that would be boring.

Aug 12:  Played ball last night and played for about 3 hours.  Played full for the most part.  When people started to go home… I picked up a little two on two game.  I was exhausted.  I just wanted to let my partner score.  It’s a boring little video… but it was nice to hit the courts.

A little game of hide & seek below:

What Nik Did On His Summer Break?

Tuesday, July 8th, 2014

I was so happy when Nik was selected 11th in this year’s NBA Draft held in NYC.  I even liked his suit.  Nik The Stick is heading to SacTown and can’t wait to try and get tickets for when they play the raptors to see him play.  What an awesome shooter.

White Men Can Jump

Ontario’s Own!  He went to Michigan and they made a great run!  Last year and this year.  Man he can shoot.

Best of luck.  It was not that long ago that I met him at a camp I was volunteering at.  A great young kid.  Big props for his Dad who made the court in the back-yard so he could shoot all day and night.

Can’t wait to follow his stats as he plays this year!
