    There are great National Basketball Association career rebounding leaders like Wilt Chamberlain, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Moses Malone, Shaquille O’Neal, Charles Barkley & Dennis Rodman just to name a few.

    It is said that Wilt Chamberlain is the undisputed king of the rebounds. A rebound is a statistics awarded to a player who retrieves the ball after a missed field goal or free throw.

    A rebound player tips in a missed shot on his team’s offensive end. A rebound can be grabbed by either an offensive player or a defensive player. Rebounds are credited after any missed shot, including air balls which totally misses the basket and board. If a player takes a shot and misses and the ball bounces on the ground before someone picks it up, then the person who picks up the ball is credited for a rebound.

    Great rebounders tend to be tall and strong. Some shorter guards can be excellent rebounders as well. I’m Gail Nobles and you’re listening to EPS.

    Country Hoops 4:19:22 4.27 PM

    Story by: Gail Nobles

    Hello! I’m Gail Nobles on EPS. Today’s topic: Country Hoops.

    They always talk about Streetball and asphalt, but I never hear about basketball in the country on the grass. Well, I don’t have to hear about it. I know about it. They talk about Dr. J at the Rucker Park and how he drew a crowd. How people were sitting up in the trees to watch him play. But when you play basketball on the grass surrounded by trees, it’s hard.

    Guys and girls would come to my house to play ball with me and my brother. They were pretty good, but when you’re used to playing on a gym floor or on asphalt, it’s not as easy to dribble the ball playing on grass. And we tried bouncing the ball on the grass so much until after awhile, it got easier because the grass started dying. After awhile, there was nothing but a big circle of dirt where we bounced the ball the most.

    Whenever we would try to shoot some hoops, there was a big tree over the basketball goal. It’s branches would block some of our shots. The branches were like long arms in our way, but all those obstacles trained us more how to play.

    Good evening. I’m Gail Nobles on EPS.
    Today’s topic is Winning Time: The Rise of the Lakers Dynasty. I’ve seen short clips of the first season. The series tells the story of the Lakers rise. I see celebrity in the film and what basketball days were like during the time of the Magic Johnson and Kareem Abdul Jabbar. You get to see what Magic and Kareem’s lives were like professionally and personally of the 1980s playing for The Lakers.

    Winning Time is based on Jeff Pearlman’s book Showtime: Magic, Kareem, Riley and the Los Angeles Lakers Dynasty of the 1980s.

    I’m amazed at the actors Quincy Isaiah who plays as Magic Johnson and Solomon Hughes as Kareem Abdul Jabbar. Quincy looked so much like Magic and Solomon looked so much like Kareem. Quincy played Magic well, and Solomon played Kareem well. When I first saw the preview of Winning Time, I was about to think it was the real Kareem and Magic. The film flashed back & forth to different scenes, and I had to get a harder and closer look. I thought, “Wow! What a movie!” They made it look so real. The other actors looked a lot like their characters too. They made the movie look like scenes from the real film.

    I’d like to thank HBO website for allowing the first episode to be seen for free because I really wanted to see what the movie was about. It left me anxious to see the whole movie.

    The real Magic Johnson had something to say about the movie, “Winning Time” according to the news.

    He said, “You can’t do a story about the Lakers without the Lakers. The real Lakers. You got to have the real guys.” He said he refuses to watch the series.

    Well, it would be neat if they added some of the Real Lakers to the movie later on. Like Magic and Kareem. I’m hoping to see the rest of the movie soon. I like what I have seen so far.

    Hello! I’m Gail Nobles on Entertainment Podcasting Sports. I must say I was very nervous about last night’s game. It was Carolina and Duke of the NCAA tournament in the Final Four. I was hoping that Carolina would win. They are my favorite team, and they did win.

    Duke was getting ahead of Carolina and Carolina was getting ahead of Duke. Carolina couldn’t seem to leave Duke behind because Duke kept catching up. I was so nervous for Carolina. Especially, whenever it was time for Carolina to go to the free throw line. I had my fingers crossed that they wouldn’t miss one shot. It’s important to make those free throws. At first, I thought Duke was going to stay in the lead, but UNC’s Caleb Love picked up the pace in the second half and led the game scoring with 28 points.

    I wonder if Vince Carter, Antwan Jamison, Rasheed Wallace, and Jerry Stackhouse were watching. They all were great UNC basketball players in the past. I still think about them whenever I see Carolina play.

    This year has been good to Carolina with a new coach, Hubert Davis. Before his coaching career, Davis played for NC from 1988-1992 and in the NBA. Carolina won the ACC against Duke in March, and last night they won against them in the Final Four.

    Mike K. Is going to be missed. He is going to retire. Even though he did not win last night, he’s still the best and has made basketball history.
