NBA fans have had only about a week to rest. The NBA Finals wrapped up last week and eyes have now turned to this Thursday. The 2015 NBA Draft is discussed in this 2nd episode of "Ben on Hoops."
Montana native and current University of Portland student Seth Roessmann joines me on the show to give his draft day predictions, help me dissect the prospects, look at potential steals, sleepers to watch out for, and much more.
Next on the Tee with Chris Mascaro this week is legendary broadcaster Ben Wright, Champions Tour Player Bob Friend and 2003 PGA Champion Shaun Micheel.
We'll reflect on the US Open and project ahead to next month's Open Championship with Ben Wright. We'll get his thoughts on what he saw at Chamber's Bay plus what he expects to see at St. Andrews. Does St. Andrews give Jordan Spieth a good shot at the 3rd leg to the single season Grand Slam? Will Spieth's run take pressure of Rory McIlroy or give him added incentive. And what about Tiger Woods? Will the wide open layout allow him to score better and be around for all 4 rounds? We'll hear what Ben Wright thinks.
Bob Friend Jr. has been playing on the Nationwide, PGA and Champions Tours since 1990. Bob has 2 professional wins and 26 Top 10 finishes. We'll chat about his season plus get his thoughts on Chamber's Bay and the rest of golfing season as well.
Shaun Micheel will join us as he's been doing every week to answer your questions. If you have one for Shaun please tweet me @ctmascaro or go to our Facebook page and send me your question. Shaun has become a wonderful friend and will be answering your questions live on the show each week as his schedule permits.
Join Chris Mascaro every Saturday at 10:00 AM as he talks with PGA & LPGA Tour pros, legends, top instructors, equipment manufacturers, media members and all those impacting the great game of golf. Hear them all sharing their stories on Next on the Tee.
Joining me on the kick-off episode of "Ben on Hoops" is rising Junior at the University of Portland, Gat Bol.
Gat's journey is unlike any other. Born in the African nation of South Sudan, he moved to Colorado at the age of 5 with no knowledge of English. In 2006, Gat moved to what is his current home of Seattle, Washington to live with his aunt and her family. Having attended multiple schools before the 9th grade, basketball gave him the sense of stability that he desired in his life.
Gat discusses his love of basketball, his experiences as a high school player in Seattle, and the impact that hoops has had on his life.
Sabrina Eubanks will take us on an exciting ride with her book, Brooklyn Boys.
Growing up in hard and gritty Do-Or-Die Bed-Stuy had been a tough and often perilous road for Justin Wilde and his brother Tony, but they refused to succumb to life’s vicious blows. Left as virtual orphans by a father doing a terminal bid and a mother who became strung out and gave up, they were left to fend for themselves. Since well-paying, gainful employment had shut its heart to these young men with minimum skills, they quickly find their niche in easily gotten drug money; slinging on the corner for a flashy old school dealer named Cicero Thomas and making undesirables disappear. They are known on the streets as Cutty and Crush.
Life hasn’t been easy, but they’ve always been smart. When they’re made an offer they can’t refuse by Prometheus Burns, an upstart from Trinidad with primo product, they start on a course for a takeover that will leave a major dealer bodied and put them in position to have the venerable status of true drug lords; but coups are not always easy. Sometimes a war must be fought to reign supreme, but Cutty and Crush are more than ready to rise to the occasion with their old friends Shade and Josie to help clear the path.
The kingdom of the original gangster and old regimes are at hand. The time has come for Brooklyn Boys.
