The Lockout happened and the traditional Summer League was canceled, but that hasn't stopped new NBA players like Josh Selby or Jimmer Fredette and Kemba Walker from playing in leagues and exhibition games of their own. In fact, even veterans like Carmelo Anthony, LeBron James, Kevin Durant and our own Jared Dudley and Hakim Warrick have been instrumental in organizing and playing in games all across the country.

Hakim Warrick has helped organize what will be an exhibition game this Sunday the 25th where Warrick, a Philadelphia native, along with a team comprised of fellow NBA Philly-natives is slated to take on Team Melo. Team Melo is a star-studded team thrown together by Carmelo Anthony boasting Chris Paul, Kevin Durant (Who will show up for the game late due to a previous engagement) LeBron James and others on the roster. Headlining the Philly team is Sacramento Kings guard Tyreke Evans, Warrick and um... Kyle Lowry? Yeah, the game looks like it might be a laugher... Unless there is some truth to the rumors that Warrick has Kobe Bryant (also a Philly native) coming in as a surprise.

Besides all that - the biggest take-away here for Suns fans is that the Morris twins are a big part of team Philly - that means we will actually get to watch our 1st round draft pick Markieff Morris play in an actual game against legitimate NBA talent. I'm excited about that and you should be too.

The game will be broadcast LIVE on SI.com this Sunday at 3:00 pm Arizona time (6 EST)

I was thinking, everything that is amazing has it's own theme song.

Bonanza had a theme song. The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air had a theme song.  Sesame Street has a theme song.   M.A.S.H, Mario Bros, Klondike Bars, MMA Fighters, Monday Night Football, Sailor Moon... anyways you get the point.

Follow this logic. 

Everything amazing has a theme song.

Bright Side of the Sun is amazing.

Therefore: Bright Side of the Sun MUST have a theme song.

I'm going to make it,  BUT I NEED YOUR HELP!  Jump it fools, and see how.

Consider the following not so much a #humblebrag, but more of an assurance that the theme song won't be too painful on your ear lobes -

I can sing (I was once cast as Joseph in a production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat).


I can play the guitar and have played professionally (for money, I think that's what that means).


Hip hop is my forte - I'm currently working on a mixtape set to release before Christmas. Here's a sample of a track called "Drone" from that mixtape.

Drone Sample LEILAND -

I'm versatile and can do just about anything though - I even could sing in Spanish if needed...  So here's where you guys come in.   I'm going to list a few questions and I want ALL OF YOU, YES, EVEN YOU Mr. Long-time reader who has never commented ever before, to answer them in the comment section below.  I'm going to take all of your input into consideration.

  1. What genre should the BSotS Theme song be? (Hip hop, Country Western, Fusion, Rock, Dubstep, Death Metal, Cowbell-Only, etc...)
  2. What things (People, places, sayings, etc.) should be included in the lyrics? (if lyrics are needed and you don't all choose an instrumental theme song)
  3. What tone should the theme song reflect? (Bright and happy, mellow and chillaxilated, Bangin' and serious, Dark and emotional, crisp and fast-flowing, Melodic and grungy, Rebecca Black-esque, etc.  If it helps you in choosing a tone, just list a band or an artist who you think the tone should sound like)
  4. How long do you want your theme song to be? (a minute long = 1 verse, 2-4 minutes = full song with a chorus and errrything, EPIC 3 Disc Box-Set)
  5. What else? (write anything else that comes to your mind pertaining to the song)

So there's your assignment - Everyone who comments should have a post that looks similar to this(Don't copy me, this is just an example).

Great Idea... I can't wait post the song to my Facebook wall for all my friends to see

1.  Rap

2. Make sure you mention how much we hate the Blazersedge... on and give a shout-out to Wil!

3. Crisp and fast-flowing... like Tech N9Ne or Twista... but only your whiter version of them.

4. I think 2-3 minutes is great, make sure the chorus is tight yo, something catchy that incorporates Steve Nash

5. Please make it downloadable so I can put that bad-boy in my IPod and bench press to your sexy voice Euty!

Once You've left a comment like that - then carry on and comment as normal. 

Alright fools - help me out and let's get the brainstorming rolling!

Mercury Vs. Lynx in Western Conf Finals, Sunday

This will be the only home game of this series which starts Thursday on ESPN 2 at 6:00p.m. The home game is Sunday at 2pm and could be the very last competitive basketball at USAC for a long, long time (unless the Merc win and advance to the Finals).

Some years it seems like a coach or manager has the Midas Touch, whereby every player they put in the game produces at a high level. Other times a coach establishes roles to the extent you know...
