Anyone who knows me knows that I am an avid basketball fan.
A few weeks ago Kobe Bryant claimed the current Olympic teams featuring the likes of LeBron James and Kevin Durant could beat the Dream Team lead by Michael Jordan and Magic Johnson.
Almost immediately an intense debate ensued amongst current players, retired legends, basketball analysts and everyday fans. Scottie Pippen boldly stated that the Dream team would be the current team by at least 25 points.

While there are plenty of variables to be argued and talked out, the 2011 NBA Lockout and rift between the players and owners can be explained by comparison.

The players want the NBA to be more like Major League Baseball, where contracts are guaranteed to pay out big dollars even if the player underperforms. The owners would like for the NBA to more closely resemble the NFL, which allows teams to cut underperforming players and puts a much larger emphasis on revenue sharing.

While the NBA lockout is just beginning, summer basketball in Memphis is heating up. The Bluff City Classic (BCC), which began in 1981, resumed last summer after an eight-year hiatus. One of the main sponsors in the effort to revive the league was Memphis native and former NBA All-Star Penny Hardaway.

Current Ole Miss players Terrance Henry and Reggie Buckner have teamed up with former Rebel and current Detroit Piston Terrico White on a team (the Cavs) in the league.

Someone at this newspaper had to put the events of last Thursday into perspective, when C.M. Tad Smith Coliseum turned into a natatorium on national television (and senior night) after water began leaking onto the court during a game between the Lady Rebels and the No. 4 Tennessee Volunteers. It was an ugly job, but I was up for it.

 Michael Thompson, Ole Miss senior athletics director for communications and marketing, spoke at length with The Daily Mississippian sports editor Paul Katool about his plans for Rebel athletics. Here’s what Thompson had to say on improving attendance at Ole Miss basketball games:

On the lack of basketball attendance...
When I was here from 1989-2001, that Coliseum was crazy; it was nuts. I remember waiting in line to get tickets. I remember waiting in line to get into the game, I remember wanting to get there early.

The names Chris Warren, Reginald Buckner, Kayla Melson and Courtney Marbra may not ring many bells.

The names Chris Warren, Reginald Buckner, Kayla Melson and Courtney Marbra may not ring many bells.

However, not a soul is confused when the names Michael Oher, Dexter McCluster, Archie Manning or Jeremiah Masoli are mentioned. Many people on campus claim to be a football trivia star.

How is it that we know the stars of our football teams, past and present, yet we can’t name more than a handful of the Rebel basketball legacies?

On Friday night Ole Miss will tipoff the 2010-2011 campaign in Oxford against John Brady’s Arkansas State. Yet there’s already pessimism within the Rebel fan base in regards to this season’s basketball squad. I understand. Fans have seen Ole Miss teams who perform well in non-conference play only scratch .500 in Southeastern Conference play and finish the season in the National Invitational Tournament.

“If you guys want to sleep right now and not wake up [until] July 1st, 2010, go ahead because it’s going to be a big day,” LeBron James teased in a 2008 postgame press conference in New York City, fully aware that ESPN would turn it into a subliminal messaging campaign by replaying it ad nauseam to keep the summer of 2010 warm long enough for even the wittiest of sports journalists to run out of one-liners to describe just how “hot” it is.
