Nate Jones on And1 Ball

Jones on the NBA: "there are some aspects of basketball that are kind of thrown out the window in the And 1 league. For starters¦the rules!"

Then there's this about nicknames:

The funniest aspect of And 1 basketball for me is the racial stereotyping that goes on. You see it most with the nicknaming of the new players that join the And 1 crew. If there's a new white player, why do they always have to name him some kind after some kind of profession? "The Professor"¦"The Scientist"¦"The Accountant"¦"The Molecular Physicist". Damn, can't a brotha get a professional name?

I bet there are tons of kids out there dreaming of growing up to the called "The Molecular Physicist."
