    Nova Vemon Basketball Team: Nikita Morris, Kaya Squirewell, and Taylor Pierce

    Nova Vemon Basketball Team: Nikita Morris, Kaya Squirewell, and Taylor Pierce

    Three members of the  NOVA Vemon AAU basketball team join me to discuss their career, playing ball during the pandemic, and how Basketball is more than a sport for them, it's a sisterhood.



    Kaya Squirewell is tough and physical on the wing as well as the post, can finish in traffic, and plays hard on both ends. She’s a fierce competitor with a high basketball IQ. Off the bounce, she is a handful and a great decision-maker. She’s a blue-collar, old-school leader who can do just about everything. Her nicknames are KD and Baby LeBron



    Nikita Morris is a lightning-fast baller who is extremely athletic and great in transition. Tough on-ball defender, great rebounder, very physical, can finish in traffic, and a hard worker on both ends with a high motor and plenty of endurance. Her nickname is Flash.



    Taylor Pierce is an extremely hard worker who always gives 100% in everything she does. She’s also one of the best teammates I’ve seen and always supports her sisters. She never takes a play off. Last year, she improved by leaps and bounds and was an animal by the end of the season - always going for the rebound and getting shots in.  Her nicknames are The Goat, The Enforcer, The Technician

    Uncomfortable Conversations: Stop Letting Debates Shows Cause You to Hate LeBron James

    Uncomfortable Conversations: Stop Letting Debates Shows Cause You to Hate LeBron James

    We live in a world where everyone wants to have an opinion. They want to build up their favorites, even if it is at the expense of tearing down another. LeBron James has been the topic of so many debate shows and everyone always wants to point out something that he has not done or cannot do. People spend so much time hating on him and a lot of this is fueled by debate shows. As LeBron said, he wants his respect.

    Los Angeles Lakers are 2019 2020 NBA Champions

    Los Angeles Lakers are 2019 2020 NBA Champions

    The Los Angeles Lakers are the 2019-2020 NBA Champions.  It wasn't a televised decision, it wasn't a letter on a sports magazine, instead, it was a simple tweet from Klutch Sports announcing LeBron James signing with the Lakers. And now we are here. They are champions of the world.
