The Athletic Mindset

By Ebony Edwards @Girl_Ebony

Has anyone noticed the parallels between education and sports? The same character traits and abilities are necessary in order to be successful in both. But how many student athletes are simultaneously successful in the two aspects of life? How many student athletes put the student aspect first? How many are athletes who just happen to be in school?

Let’s take a look at the common factors within the mindset needed to be successful in both areas of life:  Continue reading “The Athletic Mindset”

Spittin Bars & Hittin J’s

By Raymond Lyons
We all know that rappers think they can hoop and hoopers think they can rap. Several NBA players have actually gone as far as to release albums (much to my dismay) and we’re seeing a resurgence of ball players getting into the rap game. Iman Shumpert, Dame Lillard and Stephen Jackson have music floating out there (everyone is trash except Dame). So with these two arenas often crossing paths let’s have some fun with it. Let’s compare some popular NBA players to their rapper counterparts.

Candice Wiggins Says Diana Taurasi is The GOAT

A few weeks ago, we had a debate on who is the greatest woman’s basketball player of all time. As most debates man or woman, people tend to pick the player of their generation or close to it. Myself, I’m a huge critic of skill sets and fundamentals, with a dash of instinctive flare. But when speaking about “THE GOAT,” you have to factor in winning and numbers! Taurasi did it all!  Continue reading “Candice Wiggins Says Diana Taurasi is The GOAT”

Primers: NBA

“Primers” are a new section added to Prime World Order, that will be short rants and subjects I talk about daily on my Facebook page. Join in the discussions on Facebook and Twitter using the links below.

To kick off  my Primers, it’s only right that I start off with the NBA. Enjoy!


The rumor is… Melo, Durant and Kobe playing together next season in New York. But Kobe says he bleeds Purple and Gold. I dare the Lakers not come to an agreement with Kobe after this season if he remains healthy

Paul Pierce told his teammates not to wear Lebum’s sneakers. I don’t blame him. It’s not like they’re good basketball sneakers anyway. Maybe for a big man. I wear mine when it rains! I appreciate the gift tho (to my connect). Last of the Alpha Males!!

Kevin Garnett characterized the talent in Minnesota as “great” and not simply “good.” I can’t wait to see them play. Just please fit Rubio in there somewhere. The Clippers are going to lose the title of lob city if they do.

Lebum says he wish he could have a few more months off. Told his teammates they have to bring it everyday and he wants to play less minutes. Hmmmm… the contract says 82 game regular season. You signed it Bron Bron.

Have you seen rookie Josh Smith (Georgetown/ Houston Rockets) new physique? He put in a lot of work this off season and is looking in great shape!

Chicago Bulls D Rose hinting at his up coming free agency in 2017 away from Chicago? Or is the media reaching AGAIN and misinterpreting his words?

Will Rudy Gay end up in the Windy City this year? If so that’s scary for East opponents! Make it happen! More players need to come back to the East and strengthen the conference

Swaggy P wants to drop that name and be called Nicholas from now on. Time to grow up Nick  Don’t ruin your career with gimmicks.

Kevin Durant seems optimistic about his foot. I am prying that he and Westbrook are both healthy all season long, because this year I think is their time to make a run. I would love to see them win a Chip and then part ways.

How was awkward was Popovich interview? Lol He’s the best ever at making a reporter feel low. Keep up the great work.

8am-10am (Times are subject to change on some weekends)

Saturday & Sunday

If a player really wants to improve at the game of basketball here is how we will do it!

#1 Skill Development: Developing skills are the key to developing confidence in a player. Acquired through focus and repetition of shooting, ball handling and offensive skills, a players confidence is the key to developing players. Too often players are so focused on “advanced” skills, and they haven’t yet mastered the critical fundamentals to build from.

#2 IQ: Understanding the game and knowing how the game is played. Player development is a collection of different lessons learned about the game. Skill development has to translate to the game. Teachers, Coaches and trainers around the country, have to be held accountable for the lessons being taught to players. This comes from having game experience as a player or a Coach and being able to understand game situations both negative and positive.

#3 Physical Training: Conditioning and reaction drills are necessary to develop the reaction in your muscles that translate to the game.

All these things are necessary, but are obsolete without good guidance and a teacher who understands the game. Research your trainer and coach the same way they recruit players. Recruit your leader. Ask questions and find out are they offering what you want as a result. You may both be on or off the same page.

Four down TWO to go. That’s how many games are left until playoffs begin. That’s the number of opportunities that each team has to improve its standing in the playoffs or get into the playoffs. And lastly, each player has two more shots at collecting the regular season MVP bonus. One would think that watching the same people compete every week would become monotonous, but it doesn’t. Each week provides different match ups, various rivalries, and another opportunity for team cohesion or individual skill refinement. It’s interesting and entertaining to witness the progression over the past few weeks. Initially, there were plenty of players on teams but not necessarily team players. Many seemingly came in with the idea of “wowing” the crowd as opposed to getting a “w.” But being the naive spectator that I am, it looks as though the players have realized that “wowing” the crowd doesn’t give them any extra points in the standings nor does it translate to any more money in their pockets. Essentially, individual success is predicated on team success. This week was the first time that I witnessed a sense of urgency amongst teams. Players began to hold their teammates accountable for making the “right” play. Granted, the “right” play can be a subjective discussion, nonetheless, it was a discussion being had. And speaking of discussions, it’s time to share with you all of what I saw in week 4.


Game one pitted Team Trouble vs P.I.TS. As has been documented, P.I.T.S has had its share of difficulties the past few weeks. Initially, the team lacked a floor general who could facilitate the offense and protect the ball. Then the team had far too many defensive lapses. But with the addition of a couple of players,they have solved these issues. On the other side, Team Trouble is a veteran team who has been inconsistent. They have an inside-outside attack that should guarantee success, however, they too frequently have dry spells on offense and lulls on defense. Which team would be able to exploit the other’s flaws and come away with a victory? P.I.T.S started off the game jumping out to an early 12 point lead. The guards distributed the ball and Wally Judge controlled the boards. Team Trouble got back into the game as Judge collected 3 fouls leaving no one to nullify Derrick Payne and Jeff Allen (Trouble) on the boards or in the paint. P.I.T.S lead at halftime 35-34. Darin Mencey (P.I.T.S) opened up the half with a few buckets pushing the P.I.T.S lead to seven. Both teams proceeded to trade baskets and it looked as though P.I.T.S would register it’s first win of the season. That is until Judge got hurt around the 3:00 mark and was unable to return. This once again left the paint open for dribble penetration, easy post ups and put backs. End Result: Team Trouble (65-56) Top Scorers: Mark Young 14 & Armand Hill 14 (P.I.T.S) Brian Chase 18 & Jeff Allen 13 (Team Trouble)


Game two (GAME OF THE WEEK) pitted the Showstoppers vs Drew All Stars. For those of you who are new to the write ups, Showstoppers were tied for first in the league and boasting two of the top scoring players in the entire tournament. Drew All Stars had been struggling to secure wins but was looking to use last week’s win as momentum for this weekend’s match up. Now, unbeknownst to me, these two teams have a history. They frequently compete in other leagues throughout the summer and have yet to establish which one is the dominant team. This game started out with your typical scorers doing the boatload of the scoring; Corey Allmond hitting 3’s and Devin Sweetney and Marcus Ashton driving to the basket (Drew). On the other side, Dewayne Jackson began his onslaught on the box and then extended to the outside while Jamahl Brown drove to the basket and hit jumpshots (Showstoppers). The adrenaline was high as each team was trying to serve a knockout blow. The Showstoppers were able to hone their energy as they connected on a number of plays, whereas Drew was unable to focus their energy and committed too many unforced turnovers resulting in an 11 point deficit at the half (46-35). Drew All Stars discussed the adjustments at halftime and came out and immediately cut the game to 5 with back to 3 pointers from Devin Sweetney and Corey Allmond. Although Showstoppers continued capitalize on hustle plays and turnovers, Drew All Stars steadily to cut into the lead. With 8:02 left, Marcus Ashton cut the game to 4 (62-58). Devil Sweetney transformed from scorer to facilitator as he started to penetrate and kick to the hot hands of Ashton and Allmond. Drew went up 1 with 1:07 remaining. Showstoppers showed their vulnerability and inexperience and they began to heave 3’s at the basket as opposed to remaining calm and executing a play. Dewayne Jackson did connect on a 3 tying the game at 76-76. The next few possessions become a free throw shooting contest of which Drew answered the call. End Result: Drew All Stars (80-76) Top Scorers: Dewayne Jackson 17 & Jamahl Brown 16 (Showstoppers) Devin Sweetney 20 & Marcus Ashton 19 (Drew All Stars)


Game 3 pitted Baltimore vs Wiz Kids in a match up that not only contrasted two styles of play but also two ends of the rankings spectrum as it pertained to wins and losses. Baltimore is a team that typically likes to run while Wiz Kids are more methodical and prefer a slower paced game where players can grind it out in the half court. I say typically because game plans change when only 6 players show up for the game. Baltimore adjusted its run and gun style to fit the personnel available. They started the game entering the ball into the post as Gordon Chase effectively used his body to bump his defenders and finish with a smooth jumpshot. When Chase wasn’t scoring on the block, Velmar Coleman and Antione Jordan were doing their damage on the wing and from deep. Clutch scoring from Phoenix Butler (Wiz Kids) kept the game close. Baltimore led at the half 43-41. In the second half Tre Kelly began to assert himself offensively. Throughout the first half, Kelly was relegated to playmaker as Baltimore did a great job of double teaming and keeping the ball out of his hands. Butler continued his scoring throughout the second half as Kelly finally got his rhythm. This game came down the wire as Coleman (Baltimore) went on a scoring binge to tie the game at 78-78 with 15 seconds remaining and forced an overtime. In overtime, Baltimore continued to battle but clutch free throws by Bobby Shannon and Tre Kelly sealed the deal. End Result: Wiz Kids (91-88) Top Scorers: Velmar Coleman 30 & Antione Jordan 25 (Baltimore) Tre Kelly 31 & Phoenix Butler 18 (Wiz Kids)


Game four pitted Madness vs Lincoln Park in a match up that could potentially determine who gets the number one spot in the playoffs. Ed Jones put Lincoln Park on the scoreboard first by opening the game with a lay up. Deontay Twyman and Manny Ogunfolu continued the attack for Lincoln Park in lieu of Dele Ojo who was having difficulty finding his rhythm. Eddie Basden kept Madness alive by scoring on drives to the basket and 3 pointers. The game was tied at halftime 41-41.  The second half started much like the first with Ed Jones (Lincoln Park) scoring the first basket to open. From that point on, Madness dominated the game. A combination of 3 pointers by Folarin Campbell, 15 footers by Cliff Dixon, post ups by Chris Howard, and a solid team defensive effort spelled doom for Lincoln Park. Although they played hard, they had great difficulty scoring in the second half. Deontay Twyman hit a 3 to cut the lead to 6, but that was as close as Lincoln Park could get. End Result: Madness (98-80) Top Scorers: Ed Jones 23 & Deontay Twyman 16 (Lincoln Park) Folarin Campbell 30 & Chris Howard 18.

To tide us over until the release of his third studio album, Views From the 6, it’s been rumored since back in November that we’d be treated to a mixtape from (arguably) rap’s biggest star, Drake.

So, on the same day that we got a whole new clothing line and a new song from Kanye West, Drake came through to steal the thunder, dropping a 17-track mixtape titled If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late, featuring OVO artist PARTYNEXTDOOR, G.O.O.D Music’s Travi$ Scott, and of course, Lil Wayne.

Hating **** ain’t happy, and happy **** ain’t hatin. -Fabolous

I wonder if being a sports fan of certain teams relate to your character and life?  As you can see this year my motto is “When the hate don’t work,  they start telling lies. ” I borrowed that from my fellow Scorpio “Fabolous ” from his song,  “Ball Drop. ” This is the line of 2015.

Everyone knows I’m a Lakers and  a Patriots fan. Two of the most liked and scrutinized teams ever. Either you love ❤ them or hate them. But you have to respect them because of their consistency and accomplishments. But when you’re that good,  the hate and the lies start rolling in.

This is my life also. For years I have done things on and off the court that some people love ❤ and appreciate,  and some hate and really waste energy disliking me. I’m a fair dude who get goals accomplished. I share,  I put people on. I’m a fair dude that treats everyone the same.

When it comes to basketball, I hear all the rumors and excuses of why I didn’t make it to the league,  how I got into Georgetown. I wasn’t that good (Joke, I’m still good) . Dudes been saying I’m done for the last 10 years. Be over it.  It’s like everybody knows my story better than me.

I know a lot of women so the haters insist to tell women that I’m gay, that’s why women like me,  or I mess with all these different girls. Yeah fools I know y’all talk. They tell me. I don’t address it.  Then on the back-end y’all talk about me because I don’t hang with a lot of guys. It’s because I’m too much MAN for y’all girly ways.

My basketball organization,  I have a great repor,  than the one family that don’t like it,  wants to call and get everyone thinking like them and it doesn’t work. People run their mouths to others who could care less about me but they respect me. I’ve earned that by doing! Yes I talk a lot of trash, but I put action behind it. I back it up. I’ll talk before,  during and after because I’m confident in myself.

I said this to say,  when you’re on top of your life and GOD gives you favor, people don’t like it and they try anything to bring you down. Its our society. Thats why the greats walk  amongst the greats and the regulars talk about the greats lives. They say anything to bring them down. I bet you any of the dudes that talk about me would love to live in my lane. All the rumors they start would go out the window for that plug. Man up and be successful from your work. Earn your name and don’t use the internet to fake it. When you’re doing something right and they talk about you,  it fuels your fire to do more. Create more,  love more,  have more. More,  more,  more.  So thank you ladies and gents who like to talk. So get your lies ready because I have MORE!!!!  2015 after the Ball Dropped,  I cut all of the negative energy out of my life!
“When the hate stops working,  they start telling lies! ”

This is more…
Need more……. And coming to Washington DC the Summer of 2015, the biggest basketball event since the Urban Coalition. Wait for it!!!!!!!!

Well to kill any Georgetown rumors… I got my SAT scores my Junior year first time didn’t study for it. I was told to take the test to see what to expect. Killed that bird.  That made GTown jump. I didn’t get kicked out of Georgetown, I transferred for personal reasons, not grades and not just basketball. It’s life choices. I’m happy today! Right choices!

He loved her so, that after 10 years of losing contact with her, he called the last number he had for her, just to see if it still worked. The guy answered the phone and said is this ________? He said yes, how did you know? He answered, she said call her on this number. They hung up. What he didn’t know was, she called her last number that she knew he had and told the guy, “Hi! I’m __________, Can you please give ____________ my number if he ever calls? This is the last number he had of mine, just in case he calls one day.”

Remembering my cuz today. It’s his 47th birthday RIP #EBall The Goodman League use too be named after him as well but who knows why his name got dropped. 4.0 student at Mackin, played in the backcourt with Johnny Dawkins and had a sweet jumper.
He was a big fan of Curt Smith, Melvin Middleton, Polish and Troy. He loved bball. It was by God’s grace he came home from prison and snatched me off the streets before I dug in too deep and made sure I was on somebody’s court everyday. He heard I could play and told me to go hoop I got the rest. It was through him God used as a messenger and the message was reality.
I got in to Georgetown after one year of high school Basketball. The last time I saw him, he got up out his floor seat at a Georgetown game and waved his hand in disgust because I had 25 points at the half and my Coach didn’t play me the 2nd half. He signaled me to call him after the game. That was the last time I saw him. I called and paged him after the game and he never returned my call. He got shot at a phone booth and then ran over by the truck of his killer. He was there returning my call. You can imagine how I felt after that. One of the reasons I left Georgetown and got out of DC. It’s a cold world out here. I always.
Everybody is worrying about Ferguson and it’s a war outside your door. Pray for Ferguson and pray for your household. To prevent Ferguson from happening again, prepare our future for the fight, and it starts with valuing each other. Let’s start here!

It makes it really hard for parents to decide who can really help their child. If you have a gym, cones and a mobile phone, you can be a trainer today.

Feel free to comment after you read it.

A lot of parents are making an investment in their child in hopes to get the development they need so that their kid can find some success through basketball. With today’s craze of everybody being a fitness trainer, the same thing is happening with basketball. It’s almost like why would you hire an obese trainer to help you lose weight? continued…

I wanted to take my experience today at the March on Washington’s 50th Anniversary, and imagine the film and the photos I have seen of the March 50 years ago. I chose to take the photos in black and white because I wanted them to have the same feel. After seeing the photos, the feel was different at a lot of the marching points. Today the total group was not as intense and the same fight is not being fought with the same sense of urgency nor concern. This felt more like a big family reunion. But I won’t speak for all, strictly my views. These are my photos of the March on Washington 50 years later.  Saturday, August 24th 2013. Enjoy!

I missed the days of the NBA when we didn’t know who would win playoff series and the Championship. That didn’t start until the Michael Jordan era. Check the year when Air Jordan’s took off, the NBA became predictable. The $ became the show rather than entertaining the fans on the court and on the field. The business of sports is overshadowing the game itself.

American sports suck. As much as I love football as it is my first love, it’s as predictable with the story lines and winners. The New England Patriots (my team along with the Rams) won their first Bowl the year of 9/11. After 9/11 occurred, Bono said its only right that the Patriots should win (hence the name). He predicted that the Patriots would win, and guess what…The Dynasty begun! SUCKS FOR AMERICAN SPORTS!

Today we have the biggest companies sponsoring the NBA, and those same companies sponsor the leagues biggest star. Seems to me that should be a conflict of interest in that if his team wins, that’s a win for the league and sponsors. The league delivers and the sponsors visibility is doubled. Great business but bad for the fans.




It’s the day after father’s day and I’m on my way to Station 4. This is my Monday, the day I chose to take for myself and take care of me. Today was a little different because I accepted a meeting that took 5 hours. No complaints because it was a very creative meeting with my new creative team. As I walked across the street in the rain, my phone alerted me of a text. It’s my Moms. I see a longer than usual text so I immediately stopped in the rain to read it. This is what I read:

“My dear son: While I give thanks to God for you always in my prayers for you; I also, would like to thank you for being such a fine young man. It’s such a joy and a pleasure being your mom!  Yesterday celebrating Father’s Day with you was wonderful. Watching you with Taylor is so rewarding. What mother wouldn’t appreciate having a son who is a first class dad. I’ve watched you give of yourself 100% to the care and love for Taylor. You are an excellent dad, and I want you to know that I’m proud to be your mom! I too am a recipient of a good dad. He passed on when I was 15 years of age, he didn’t leave me without treasured memories, memories that will last a lifetime. Lonnie, keep planting seeds of treasured memories with Taylor, they will grow into monuments embedded in her heart forever! From the heart of a mother who loves and respects her son! ♥”

The rain covered my tears. After reading this, I felt accomplished. No matter what I have done with my basketball career, business or anything I was blessed to do, today made me feel like I have made my Mother proud. I never thought that sharing the same love she has given to me as a single Mom, would be the thing in my life that made her proud of me.

This has just made my night that much sexier! #quenching

“Team Prime” It’s time to play!

We are bringing the fun back into basketball for our youth. A lot of organizations take the most important part of basketball out by putting the business of the game before the youth. Takes the fun out of the game too early for them. We will be dedicated to always making sure that kids learn the game, develop and be competitive while having fun.

This logo is a reminder of the obstacles that we have overcome to make dreams come true. The wholes symbolize the wounds that we are reminded of when facing the adversity. It’s always a war when you want success. The T and P are intertwined showing togetherness and the letters are bleeding together. It takes a team to overcome all obstacles. No matter the score or the outcome, “Team Prime,” is set to always finish first!

Our debut is this Memorial weekend: Come out and support!

The event takes place at the Truxton Park / Pip Moyer Recreation Center in Annapolis, MD:
273 Hilltop Lane Annapolis, MD 21403
May 25 thru May 27, 2013
Team: Boys 15&u

This will be the first tournament for players and coaches. We all start from the bottom together! We are here now! #TeamPrime “It’s Time to Play!”
