The season opener between the Brooklyn Nets and the New York Knicks may be delayed, but it’s always game time for The Combat Jack Show. In this sneak peek at next week’s Fabolous episode hear how Loso gave an official BK welcome to The Nets’ Joe Johnson.
Jeremy Lin’s story is a great lesson for kids everywhere because it debunks and defangs so many of the prejudices and stereotypes that unfairly hold children back. He’s dispelled the idea that Asian-American guards somehow couldn’t hack it in the NBA — and that being a world-class athlete on the court is somehow at odds with being an excellent student off the court.
Contrary to what you might read, Jeremy, 23, is no overnight sensation. In fact, he achieved success the old-fashioned way: he earned it. He worked hard and stayed humble. He lives the right way; he plays the right way.
It’s great to see good values rewarded in professional sports because that’s not always the case. Often it’s the bling, the glam, the individual that gets celebrated — not the team and working together to advance a goal bigger than oneself. Jeremy cares only about one thing — winning. And I don’t care whether you are an Asian-American kid, white, black or Hispanic, Jeremy’s story tells you that if you show grit, discipline and integrity, you too can get an opportunity to overcome the odds.
Good shit Jeremy. Let’s go #Knicks!
Right before New York washed the Washington Wizards, and P and Havoc got to make all nice for the camberas, Trayvon Martin’s mother, Sybrina Fulton, older brother Jahvaris Fulton, and a younger sibling got the opportunity to meet with the Knickerbockers.
According to Hip Hop Wired:
Before Carmelo Anthony and the New York Knicks stepped on the court to give the Washington Wizards a 103-65 drumming Friday night, the star forward extended an invitation to the family of Trayvon Martin, who was tragically shot and killed by “Neighborhood volunteer” George Zimmerman. Trayvon’s family was in New York for an interview with CNN to speak on the tragic loss of the young man, but were treated to a private meeting with Carmelo and the rest of the Knicks players before Friday night’s game.
Good job Carmelo.

As the NY Knickerbockers washed the Washington Wizards to move into a tie for 7th in the Eastern Conference with the Philadelphia Sixers, Mobb Deep’s Prodigy and Havoc played court side seats like shit was all good just a week ago. Now I can’t ever be mad at two cats reconciling differences like grown men. But… color me confused.
