In All Airness – Basketball Central

inallairnessEvery now & then you come across something that just reminds you of the good ol’ days… Back when politicians weren’t crooked, kids respected their parents & Shawn Kemp only had 4 illegitimate children… That thing is In All Airness.

In All Airness is a website & podcast run by Adam Ryan. He lives & breathes the Jordan Era of the NBA… and now he’s sharing his passion for Michael Jordan, the Chicago Bulls, VHS’s, 80’s & 90’s NBA with the world. So many people globally fell in love with the sport during this era & this largely can be associated with Michael Jordan. In All Airness is built to celebrate this special time in NBA & sporting history.

The jewel to Adam’s In All Airness crown is the Podcast. Adam works tirelessly to find high quality guests from the Jordan-Era to chat about their experiences & re-live the good ol’ days of the NBA with in-depth & well thought questions that become fascinating conversations re-living moments we all know & unlocking some amazing anecdotes that only a select few know about. So far he has interviewed former Chicago Bulls big-man & 3 time NBA Champion Bill Wennington, Former Chicago Bulls play-by-play commentator Tom Dore & most recently, NCAA Champion, Dream Team Member & NBA All Star Christian Laettner.

So I urge everyone to check out In All Airness… It’s a great throwback website & an amazingly insightful & entertaining podcast.

Adventures of Christopher Bosh in the Multiverse

Umm…. Wow…

Underground Film production studio Bleeding Palm has released a new movie called “Adventures of Christopher Bosh in the Multiverse” and it looks awesome!

The film will premiere at the Borscht Film Festival in at the Miami Art Museum on December 14th 2012 & is described as “a visual glimpse into the many layers of Miami Heat Power Forward/ Insterstellar Star Prince CHRIS BOSH“.

I really don’t feel like i’m hyping it up too much when i’m saying that this could potentially be the greatest movie ever made… Because I think it will be.

Check out the trailer:

Happy Thanksgiving from Dwight Howard

Check out this video that Steve Nash took of Dwight Howard on the Lakers private jet wishing the team a Happy Thanksgiving & hoping that they don’t eat too much food because they don’t want two losses in a row…

Dwight, if you ever lose all your money & need to work in your post-retirement phase, being the worlds best 7ft flight attendant is right up your alley… I’d fly Delta again if there was the chance that you would hand me my mixed nuts.

Spare a thought for the NBA’s non-Amercians this Thanksgiving


The NBA is now a global sport. There is a record tying 84 Players born overseas suiting up in NBA Uniforms this season. Today is Thanksgiving, a great American tradition & an awesome day. Whilst all the US Born players are spending time with their loved ones, or helping out in gourmet soup kitchens like Deron Williams, lets spare a thought for the growing list of International NBA Players & see what they are up to on this great day…

Enes Kanter

Not everyone wants to have turkey for Thanksgiving lunch… Enes Kanter went to IHOP for some awesome Thanksgiving Pancakes… After one pancake too many, he found out he was Telekinetic! Expect him to not miss a shot for the rest of the season & Utah win the NBA Championship… You’ve been warned.

Victor Claver

Whilst everyone else in the United States is glued to various NFL games, Spaniard Victor Claver’s spending today making sure that TBS doesn’t go bankrupt by watching the Thanksgiving Friends Marathon… Good Job Victor.

Patty Mills

According to his tweet, Patty must be home-sick today.

You must be pretty desperate to want to listen to Soctty & Nige… They are possibly the worst Radio duo that Australia have ever pulled together. Unless you live or have been to Canberra you would have probably never heard of them… Patty, let’s keep it that way.

Alexey Shved

On his first ever Thanksgiving, Minnesota Timberwolves Russian rookie sensation Alexey Shved’s spending today just chilling out at the skate park with his bros…

Danilo Gallinari

Danilo’s desperately trying to fit in with his American counterparts today…

Happy Thanksgiving to all our American #believethehype listeners & readers! Hope you all have a great day, stay safe & spare a thought for all of us not from your country who can’t have an awesome day of stuffed Turkey!

Instagrammys Week 7 – Landry Fields

After being one of the All Stars of Off Season Instagrams, it wasn’t going to be long before Landry Fields received an Instagrammy Nomination.

Landry’s living it up, he may be injured but he’s become an international phenomenon when it comes to gee-ing up in the NBA. He can sing, he’s got a bucketload of cash thanks to the Toronto Raptors & he’s got one of the best IQ’s in NBA History. So it means that when he’s sitting in the nose-bleed section of Ford Field to watch some Thanksgiving Football… He has to go incognito.
