More About Juaquin:
Juaquin Hawkins looked in the mirror and saw a disfigured face staring back at him. It was 9:15 a.m. and he was in a Townsville, Australia, hotel room. His fingers tingled, the right side of his body grew numb. He closed his eyes and prepared to die. It was New Year’s Day, 2008.
“Is this how I’m going to leave?” he wondered. “Doing something I love, away from my family?”
In the twilight of a professional basketball career, at 34 and in peak physical condition, the body he relied on to earn a living was giving way to a stroke. Throughout a life marked by false starts and dead ends, all he ever wanted was to provide for his family..

REAL TALK SPORTS Join us as we talk NBA Playoffs with Paul Harrison Head Coach Men's Basketball at Clayton State Univ. and former NBA player (Spurs) Reggie Johnson
This time last year Full Sport Press aired their inaugural FSP Player Playoffs. At that point, the top tier clearly consisted of only two players, LeBron James and Kevin Durant. While Durant would go on to win the MVP, most at that time felt James was the clear best player in the league.What a difference a year later. The 2014-15 season features perhaps the most fascinating MVP race ever, with at least five players able to make a legitimate argument. Which NBA Player will win this year? Join @lock_tha_great , @jaihov and the producer of the show @howeezy26 as they discuss the hottest sports news of the past week and debate who's the best player in the NBA with FSP's 2015 NBA Player Playoffs.
Despite the 2015 NBA draft lottery playing out without many major surprises, the order still raises a handful of burning questions. Each top prospect in the NBA draft is his own man. There will never be another Michael Jordan, but there won't be another Jimmy Butler, either. The same is true for literally every player who steps foot onto an NBA court, no matter how well or poorly he may play. But that doesn't mean we can't try to find comparisons. Join @lock_tha_great , @jaihov and the producer of the show @howezzy26 as they discuss the hottest sports news of the past week and analyze the best NBA player comparisons for the top prospects in the 2015 NBA Draft.
We will be talking sports and having fun doing it. We will be talking all things NBA Playoffs with two former NBA greats. Former Milaukee Bucks great Sidney Moncrief and former player John Lucas. Also, we will be joined by one of the stars of "Hardcore Pawn" Seth Gold, who will discuss the show and so much more. You will get my thoughts on Greg Hardy, Tim Tebow, Scott Brooks and so much more. Call 646-727-3070 to join the fun.

On this episode of FSP, Vic and Jerry will discuss the increasingly social concious NFL and how the Atlanta Falcons parted ways with their 4th round pick of last year. Tom Brady's appeal to the NFL, what does it mean when Robert Kraft and Roger Goodel make-up and the Patriots accept their punishment but let Brady go for the apeal? They will also discuss the NFL's Top 100 list numbers 70-61. The two will compare and contrast the NBA Finals, Golden State Warriors vs Cleveland Cavilers, who will win the series and how are the topics.
