The early years were rough for our guest after losing both his parents by age 12. Thanks to a childhood friend he got down with his local Police Athletic League where he began developing his basketball skills quickly and meeting one of his life long mentors Mr. Lamar Dyson.He played high school ball at Charles Evans Hughes before enrolling at Iona College. In his time there he became the all-time leader in total points scored. Along with his son, also an Iona product, they are one of just two father-son duos to score 2,000 points each in NCAA D-I basketball, the other being Dell Curry and Steph Curry.After leaving Iona in 1984 he was selected 30th overall by the Golden State Warriors. That kicked off a 16 year professional career that took him all around the globe. Today you can find him all throughout the city of NY training, educating and developing children and young adults through Young Athletes Inc and a host of events he's affiliated with.On this episode we explore the life and journey of Steve Burtt Sr.Be sure to subscribe to the podcast and tell a friend!Mix & Mastering courtesy of DJ Trends (https://soundcloud.com/djtrends)--- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/dribblendimes/support
On this episode we explore the journeys of 2 distinguished gentlemen from the We W.I.L.L. Thru Sports Program. Our first guest was raised on the upper west side as a member of an 8 sibling family. Nothing came easy, but there was never a dull moment. He graduated from Norman Thomas H.S. and made his way to Lehman College where for the first time he walked on and played organized basketball. He flipped that into a couple of FREE99 degrees and the inspiration to one day establish his own non profit now named We W.I.L.L. Thru Sports. Today as the founder of We W.I.L.L. coach Henry Perez develops groups of children and young adults through expert basketball training and a variety of personal development programs. Our next guest earned the respect of his peers early and as such was given private access to his neighborhood public park where he spent countless hours refining his shooting stroke. He spent time busting that ass all across NYC. Often you'd catch him playing alongside Hoops & Hip Hop icon Bobbito Garcia. When High School hit he attended and played at La Salle Academy. Then he'd go on to the University of Nebraska to play D1 ball and then professionally in Italy. Today "Pasta" (as they call him) is the associate head coach at Riverdale H.S. and both a board member and coach at We W.I.L.L. Thru Sports. On this episode of Dribble N' Dimes we hear the stories of Henry Perez and Joe "Pasta" Cifone.Be sure to subscribe to the podcast and tell a friend!Mix & Mastering courtesy of DJ Trends (https://soundcloud.com/djtrends)--- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/dribblendimes/support
Standing 6 feet 9 inches this brother frequented his neighborhood courts to get his recreational hoops on. In middle school his confidence grew, not off the roundball, but with the pen after he earned an A off an essay he scribed. That confidence instilled by his teacher sparked a curiosity in him that years later resulted in the creation of his own hoops site called DavesJoint.net.A walking high school hoops encyclopedia, he'll give you the low down and recent highlights of most standouts straight off the dome. You can find him at most local tournaments and notable games interviewing players and crafting content for his blog. On this episode of Dribble N' Dimes we kick it with writer - entrepreneur and owner of DavesJoint.net, David Cordova.Be sure to subscribe to the podcast and tell a friend!Mix & Mastering courtesy of DJ Trends (https://soundcloud.com/djtrends)--- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/dribblendimes/support
At an early age our guest recalls immersing himself in basketball thru the pages of SLAM magazine. In parallel he became more dedicated to honing his skills in the park. He peaked early and by the end of his middle school years so too came the slow down of his serious on court exploits.He never let up on his hoops fanaticism. He revered NBA icons like Allen Iverson, Kobe Bryant and so on, never missing a beat on all things Basketball culture. As luck would have it he found his way into Harris Publications and became a part of the SLAM magazine family. As a sales person he made a name for himself and earned a solid reputation throughout the company. After a series of interesting corporate shuffles he partnered with SLAM founder Dennis Page and another associate to outright buy SLAM and set it on a new and exciting course. On this episode of Dribble N' Dimes we hear the basketball story of SLAM Media, Inc.

As a young'n this Queensbridge product ran tournaments in his neighborhood park using the spaces in-between the monkey bars as baskets. A raw talent he grew and developed into a low post barbarian, unstoppable in his pursuit of wiping the glass clean and getting his text book put backs. The bulk of his playing days were spent on the streetball circuit where he earned the nickname "Da Guardian". When his brother made it to the league, the family headed west to the great state of Indiana, where he found himself practicing with NBA pros giving them the business (his brother included). Throughout, he's struggled with depression and has been in some dark places, but with the help of his bride to be and the love of his family he's been able to work through terrible times to get himself to a happier place. On this episode of Dribble N' Dimes, It's a pleasure to share the basketball journey of Daniel Artest.Be sure to subscribe to the podcast and tell a friend!Mix & Mastering courtesy of DJ Trends (https://soundcloud.com/djtrends)--- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/dribblendimes/support

This Astoria Queens native grew up playing all sorts of sports up and down his block. Self admittedly he wasn't the best basketball player, but his defensive prowess got him court time at his neighborhood Boys & Girls club.

Through ABCD he was able to help in the development of the nation's brightest stars...

Straight out of the Boogie Down our guest was taught to dribble by one of the most unlikely teachers, his slightly older Greek neighbor. This self proclaimed fire escape All-American, would adjust the height of his building fire escape ladder to accommodate his shooting stroke and dunk game.  At age 11 he was invited by neighborhood homie Orlando Antigua to try out for the Gauchos. He arrived late, missing the age appropriate try-out. With little choice left he ran with the much bigger 16 year olds and made the cut.He honed his skills and attended St. Raymond H.S. As a freshman, he killed, capturing well deserved attention throughout the city for his performances. In his sophomore year he was promoted to the Varsity squad under Gary DeCesare and blossomed, garnering national attention that ultimately led to him committing to the University of Massachusetts.On this episode we sit with that dude Charlton Clarke.Mix & Mastering courtesy of DJ Trends (https://soundcloud.com/djtrends)--- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/dribblendimes/support
