Jason Curry Interview w/ Howard Garfinkel, Pee Wee Kirkland, and Joe "The Destroyer" Hammond - Pt. 1

It takes greatness to recognize greatness. That's why Big Apple Basketball President, Jason Curry, sat down and talked with basketball legends Joe "The Destroyer" Hammond, Pee Wee Kirkland, and Howard Garfinkel about The Basketball Tournament (TBT) and who they would pick if they were playing for $1,000,000.

Overseas Elite Grabs The Basketball Tournament $1,000,000 Prize

Word to the wise, if you want to win a $1,000,000 in a summer basketball tournament you need to do two things: 1) Have a signed recording artist cheer for your team on the bench, preferably Maybach Music Group's Stalley, and 2) You better hit the glass hard. One more rebound, hard.

By winning in the rebound column by one board, Overseas Elite defeated Team 23, 67 - 65 to win The Basketball Tournament $1,000,000 grand prize. Former St. John's standout, D.J.

Master Scientist - Grand Hank at the DELL Music Center

You ever hear the one about the molecule that walks into a bar? It's funny,the only problem is that I don't remember the joke. Science was always one of my favorite classes, but since I've been out of school, my technologically hypnotized life has lead me to believe that I don't need science. So what I've calculated is, technology makes us dependent, not independent.

For decades Master Scientist, Grand Hank, has been spreading the importance of science in our daily lives. Grand Hank blends Science and Hip-Hop to educate all ages about the fun of Science. He's performed on numerous TV shows (The Science Lab Of Grand Hank & The Science of Philadelphia) and in front of live audiences to captivate the young and the old.
