Hoops Talk with NBA Legend Muggsy Bogues at NBA Jam Session - Halifax

To conclude our interviews from NBA Jam Session in Halifax, it was a pleasure to have the chance to talk with NBA legend, Muggsy Bogues.  The former Toronto Raptor and Charlotte Hornet was in Halifax on the last stop of the NBA Jam Session tour and we were lucky enough to get in a few minutes with Muggsy.

Heading up to the Jam Session weekend, I was excited when I got word Muggsy was coming to town. He was an amazing player to watch growing up. His strength and power in the game despite his short stature lead my wife and I to name our 20lb dog (pug/beagle mix) after him. Like the ball player, he's small, tough and not afraid to play with the "big dogs".  Having the opportunity to chat with an NBA legend as basketball fans is an amazing experience, to say the least.


Shoutouts to Muggsy for allowing us to talk hoops with him.  Be sure to follow Muggsy on Twitter @MuggsyBogues and visit his official website at www.MuggsyBogues1.com.  Also, a huge thanks goes out again to the NBA Canada team for letting us interview Muggsy at this year's Jam Session.

Hoops Talk with Anthony "Buckets" Blakes at NBA Jam Session Halifax 2011

One of our favourite NBA Jam Session interviews from last year was Anthony "Buckets" Blakes of the Harlem Globetrotters.  He was back for the cross-Canada Jam Session tour this year and we had the opportunity to talk to the Globetrotters guard for a second time.  We asked "Buckets" about the Globetrotters tour, his watch collection and his favourite spot in Halifax.  Be sure to check out Anthony "Buckets" Blakes and the Harlem Globetrotters at harlemglobetrotters.com

A special thanks to the NBA Canada crew for letting us shoot our interview!  Stay tuned for our interview with NBA Legend, Muggsy Bogues. (Camera: Jeorge Sadi).

Jonesin' For Some Hoops - NBA Jam Session Halifax 2011

Well, the NBA lockout has kept us itching for some basketball action this summer and we finally got a taste of a little NBA/hoops action here in Halifax when the NBA Jam Session rolled into the city.  This was the last stop on the Jam Session tour as Halifax was the host of the 3 on 3 National championship game.

Sean Francois, U-E Sampang and myself got to witness this year's festivities which included the basketball talents Lucky (the Boston Celtics Mascot), The Toronto Raptors Dance Pak, Anthony "Buckets" Blakes of the Harlem Globetrotters and NBA Legend, Muggsy Bogues.

Check out our little highlight reel from this year's NBA Jam Session weekend:


Stay tuned for interviews with NBA legend, Muggsy Bogues and Anthony "Buckets" Blakes of the Harlem Globetrotters in the upcoming week.  Also, check out NBA Jam Session Canada on Facebook for pictures and videos from across the country.

Shoutouts to Jeorge Sadi for the excellent camera work!
