My Basketball Life In Italy – Ryan Hollins

When it comes to the basketball life few things are certain. But one thing is for certain with Ryan Hollins, he loves his family, the game, and the life he has been so fortunate to live.  In this exclusive sit down with our own Ric Bucher, Ryan shares more inspiring and honest stories about moving his family to Italy; all for the love of the game.

…you’re not allowed to meet guests at baggage claim in the Turin airport…the security guards walk around with assault rifles.

It appears your family has joined you in Italy. When did that happen? How?
Since my exit of Gran Canaria and arrival at Auxilium Torino, a family plan had to be put into action. Janice and I had the blessing of a new job and yet, a huge challenge in front of us with Eve not being able to fly and Lauren and Chris still in school. These are the type of moments where, as a parent, you put your feelings aside and do what is best for your children. Even if we wanted to leave right away with Eve we couldn’t because we had to get her a passport. With her being only a few weeks’ old, we also felt it was best for her to mature more before being whisked off to another country. Lauren and Chris had already left schools that they loved and had to start over in another country…So talk about a first day. We decided that Janice and the kids would come to Italy closer to playoff time to smooth the transition. (more…)

BJ Armstrong From MJ’s Sidekick to NBA Powerbroker

BJ Armstrong is approaching his 50th birthday (September 9th). It’s a fact that makes any 90s basketball fan cringe a little bit.

Yet, the former Bulls point guard and Michael Jordan sidekick still looks like he could give a contender meaningful minutes off the bench. It’s been 17 years since Armstrong played his last game in the NBA, but the boy-ish smile and young-at-heart enthusiasm has endured over the years. Rather than setting up teammates on the court, Armstrong is now setting up clients off it, serving as an agent at Wasserman for players like Draymond Green, Derrick Rose and Josh Jackson. It’s easy to see why players are drawn to him. With a delivery that’s half John Calipari, half Denzel Washington from Training Day, Armstrong speaks with passion about the business of basketball. And with the rings (three) and seasons (13) to back it up, his words come with a certain weight.

Armstrong broke into the agent business in 2006 after a short stint as a special advisor and scout in the Bulls’ front office. Since then, Armstrong has been using the same skills that made him an effective point guard to become an effective powerbroker in the NBA. He’s helped his clients get drafted, sign contracts and endorsements and navigate the many problems NBA players navigate on a daily basis. (more…)

Healthy Derrick Rose Ready To Help Cavs Win A Title

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Derrick Rose has some secrets.

He often plays chess online against random people who have no idea that their king is being attacked by the 2011 NBA MVP. He was a decent tennis and baseball player in high school. He’s spent a good amount of time this summer studying the life of Albert Einstein. He watches documentaries.

Most people don’t know these things. Rose doesn’t care if people know these things.

Here’s what Rose hopes people know, or at least soon know: He believes he’s still among the NBA elite. So for Rose, this season alongside LeBron James with the Cleveland Cavaliers is a reset, maybe a redemption, maybe even a reinvention. He made $21 million last season; he’ll make about $2 million this season after signing for the minimum , even after averaging 18 points with the dysfunctional New York Knicks a year ago.

Now — recovered from a fourth knee surgery — Rose is set to start anew and resume chasing what would be his first NBA title. (more…)
