What's wrong with Vick?
Well, if you haven't heard, Michael Vick of the Falcons is in
trouble again. Guilty or not guilty of drug charges we do not know yet. But in Atlanta, the Falcons are always a hot topic
in sports. Weather you are a fan or a hater of Vick and the Falcons, or even care at all. You have to wonder why so many athletes
that have money do some strange things. People always say,"man that guy makes a lot of money why would he jeopardize that!"
But you have to look around or even look at yourself, and think. We all at some point have done dumb things. And we know friends
and people that do dumb things. Pro athletes are people too, that make mistakes or deliberately do these strange things.
They have the same temptations or even more because they have money and the fame. So the cost of a bad action is usually higher
for high profile people. You can pass judgement or say a person is terrible, thats your opinion. But remember when you judge
someone, you too will be judged according to how you judge others. Of course we should never do wrong. And wrong is wrong.
But right is right. We all do dumb things and we all make mistakes. Mike Vick has tarnished his image in Atlanta. What will
happen to him now, who knows. Thats up to Vick. When you are in the spotlight, there is always someone waiting for you to
screw up. God is the ultimate judge, but God also forgives if you sincerely ask it. Just a thought. I am a fan of Mike Vick
and I hope he can get his act straight. But everyone must pay for their sins. Sooner or later........

Happy New Year!!!! Wow, what a year that 2006 was
for asian basketball. We have come a long way asian people. I am proud of all that we have accomplished. We at asianballers.net
want to thank all the teams and participants and tournament coordinators and hosts for the great job that yah have done in
2006. We are excited to see how asian basketball has grown. 2007 I'm sure will be even better. We have a lot of great plans
this year to push the growth even more. So look out for more great events near you. There are so many good potential young
ball players and young teams. Who will be this year's National Champion!
Winter Jam Wrapup
Team United from Virginia Beach were the favorites
going into the last weekends tournament, and they proved to deserve the honors by taking first place lead by #1 Benny Batoon
and #8 K Washington. But the entire team contributed to the championship. This is a very talented team hungry for this year's
National Championship. They said,"Bring on LA Showtime!". Taking second, the ever consistent Teddy Bears from Atlanta.
This is the first year of the the Atlanta Winter Jam, so there were not a whole lot of teams. Lots of reason maybe due to
the holiday season. But this will be the start of another great tradition in the South.
Winter Jam Final Four Teams
Team Orlando - FL
Team United - VA
Philadelphia Suns - PA 21
Teddy Bears - GA
Team United 57 Teddy
