Tragedy struck this young man's family at a tender age when his mother unexpectedly passed away. Thanks to his older sister taking on the motherly role plus with the help of his extended family he was able to persevere, hone his skills and flourish as a phenom on the basketball court. A current assistant coach for the Dayton Fyers men's basketball team, he went from Washington Heights, to the Univ. of Pittsburgh and overseas (winning a few championships along the way). Ricardo Greer now sits with Manny Digital and Emilio the Poet to tell us all about his journey on this episode of the Mecca of Tri-State area Hoops podcast! --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/appSupport this podcast: https://anchor.fm/dribblendimes/support
Our guest is a NYC guy all the way through. We claim him in the BX, but he's resided in multiple boroughs and has made a mark everywhere he's set foot. Hanging with older crowds, he fell into the game of basketball and with the help of the "older heads" was put on the path to basketball success. His climb up the hoops ladder landed him at St. Raymond H.S. and into the Raven family. There he quickly formed bonds with his newfound band of brothers and nurtured an adversarial relationship with coach Gary DeCesare. He developed his game and leadership abilities and was able to take them on a multi-stop college tour that culminated in him earning his college degree at the University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown. From there he leapt into a coaching career spanning nearly a decade, across several men's programs around the NCAA. After serving time, as a consequence of an FBI investigation into the NCAA, Book chose Dribble N' Dimes as his first public opportunity to speak since becoming a newly free man. He sits with Manny Digital to walk through his past and share what's in store in his new future with the Gauchos. Listen to the story of Emmanuel "Book" Richardson with special guest Erin Richardson on this episode of Dribble N' Dimes.Be sure to subscribe to the podcast and tell a friend!Mix & Mastering courtesy of DJ Trends--- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/appSupport this podcast: https://anchor.fm/dribblendimes/support

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.

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.
