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
On episode 2 of The Instant Offense NBA podcast, I'm joined by former All Star Kenny Anderson (@chibbs_1 on Twitter). From starring at Archbishop Malloy to excelling at Georgia Tech to dazzling under the bright lights in NBA, he's has seen it all, and he hops on to talk 90s basketball, the modern point guards and today's league, and how the incoming rookie point guards stack up. You won't want to miss this one!
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.
The 2015 NBA Draft is officially in the books!
Kentucky Wildcats power forward Karl-Anthony Towns was selected first overall by the Minnesota Timberwolves. Towns joins a T-Wolves squad that boasts reigning NBA Rookie of the Year Andrew Wiggins and well-respected big man Kevin Garnett.
With the second overall pick in the draft, the Los Angeles Lakers selected Ohio State Buckeyes point guard D'Angelo Russell. Intrigued by Russell's "star" power and explosive offensive arsenal, the Lakers skipped on highly-coveted rim protector Jahlil Okafor in favour of drafting the Buckeyes' skilled floor general.
Unsurprisingly, the Philadelphia 76ers, bearing the third overall pick, subsequently selected the aforementioned Jahlil Okafor. The 19-year-old Duke University product joins a Sixers front court that includes two former first round picks in Nerlens Noel and Joel Embiid.
First Round - Top 15 Selections:
1. Karl-Anthony Towns (MIN)
2. D'Angelo Russell (LAL)
3. Jahlil Okafor (PHI)
4. Kristaps Porzingis (NYK)
5. Mario Hezonja (ORL)
6. Willie Cauley-Stein (SAC)
7. Emmanuel Mudiay (DEN)
8. Stanley Johnson (DET)
9. Frank Kaminsky (CHA)
10. Justise Winslow (MIA)
11. Myles Turner (IND)
12. Trey Lyles (UTH)
13. Devin Booker (PHX)
14. Cameron Payne (OKC)
15. Kelly Oubre (ATL - Traded to WSH)
Join Daniele Franceschi as he breaks down the biggest moves from last night's draft.
The Golden State Warriors are the 2014-15 NBA champions!
On Tuesday night, Stephen Curry and the Dubs ended a 40-year championship drought, earning the Warriors' fourth NBA title in franchise history.
Andre Iguodala, who was inserted into the Warriors' starting lineup prior to Game Four of the series, claimed Finals MVP honours, posting averages of 16.3 PPG, 5.8 RPG and 4 APG.
*Sigh* The off-season is upon us... However, on a more positive note, the 2015 NBA Draft is less than a week away!
The Minnesota Timberwolves currently hold the first overall pick in next Thursday's draft.
A pair of highly touted big men headline this year's draft class. Will Karl-Anthony Towns be the first to hear his name called on draft day, or will Jahlil Okafor march onto the stage and have the honours of being the first draftee to pose for photos with commissioner Adam Silver?
Meanwhile, in the "Great White North", Canada Basketball's U16 Men's National Team returned home earlier this week after a successful trip to the U16 FIBA Americas in Argentina. The young Canucks finished second in the tournament, capturing a silver medal after being defeated by a star-studded United States squad in the Gold Medal Game.

Welcome to the Coach Steve Clark Ph.D Show where we aim to encourage, inspire and equip coaches, players and parents who in turn inspire and equip others to promote tennis, foster sportsmanship, and develop greater players and people.
Today's Guest or Topic
Join us as I have one of the most beloved collegiate players and 4-time All American Trevor "Tank" Kronemann. His passion and explosive game were crowd pleasers. I had the pleasure of coaching Trevor at UC Irvine, during stints in Orange County between tour stops, and seeing him ascend to a #3 ATP doubles world ranking! After finishing his playing career he began coaching collegiately, eventually taking the helm of his Alma Matre UC Irvine.
A bit about your host, Coach Steve Clark
Having over 25 years of collegiate coaching experience with teams as high as #16 NCAA and players in the top 5 and former players in the top echelon of the ATP, Coach Clark engages guests and the listeners in an array of topics ranging from momentum management to between point management; from elite coaches and players as guests to the mechanics, tactics and sports psychology for the determined club player. And beyond the normal discussions often around tennis, Dr. Clark will entertain topics as wide as collegiate recruiting, team promotion and fan building for coaches, to topics for the parents-coach dynamic. Having a PhD and numerous other degrees and being a former NCAA All-American and successful player beyond, he understands and has a deep concern for the academic, personal and athletic development of players and students. Thanks for tuning in. Please call in live, leave your questions on email at email@example.com, or download a podcast.
On the second episode of The Instant Offense Podcast, James Holas spoke with New York legend and former NBA point guard Kenny Anderson about his playing days, defending Allen Iverson, today's "point guard heaven," and seeing his game in Brandon Jennings.
This week's edition of NBA Live Talk marks our 100th episode on Blog Talk Radio!

NBA Finals Update:
(1) Golden State Warriors vs. (2) Cleveland Cavaliers: 2-2
Game Five takes place on Sunday at Oracle Arena in Oakland.
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.
