It’s another birthday year for Michael Jordan who turned 54. In many eyes he’s the reigning all-time best in NBA play. Fans hoped to see some of that at the recent All-star game as things went jazzy in New Orleans. While the game had some folks sighing, Anthony Davis & Lebron James were the ones shining.

Post-game chatter is overall play was a joke. According to USA Today even Kyrie Irving chimed in saying “It’s all in good fun, but I definitely think that, if we want a competitive game, guys will probably have to talk about it before the game.” It’s things people talk about to bring ‘more game & less lame’ to the office.

The all-star showcase features athletes who know what ‘good-better-yes’ looks like and what winning feels like. It’s where fun is plenty, boos are rare and thrills are high. Plus in the days of Jordan & Magic we’d see how pros excel in stepping out of their heads and into the zone by having a picture of the goal.

Some sports analysts wonder if that mindset is getting lost in the fat-check world of the league. What many remember and point back to is how in the Jordan era athletes would work hard and play smart to get the best out of their effort. They’d give us lots of dunks but not slack-off on playing a complete game.

Cheers were heard when Durant and Westbrook connected on a tag-team score. Then we saw the high-fives. If for nothing else, the best plays in a game or at the office are those where players bring it as go-getters and team players. Maybe next time in L.A. Irving says ‘let’s groove’ they’ll picture it like pure gold.

Another b-day for air Mike. Turned 84, no 54 psyche! For many he’s the real MVP. All-time best in scoring spree. True fans hoped they’d get. A game where players would sweat. Things were jazzy in Pelican town. Lots of celebs hung around. Some folks were kinda sighing. But Davis & James did their shining.

Past-game chatter on overall play. It was a joke is what some say. Even Kyrie Irving chimed-in a bit. On looking for good fun and no sh**. For all-star game to come alive. Players gotta show-up with no jive. Talk before tip-off makes it good. For ‘more game & and less lame’ like they should.

All-star showcase of athletic feats. Dudes from local and foreign streets. Those who know about ‘good-better-yes.’ With winning as a way to bless. Fun is plenty, boos are rare. Thrill are high like they don’t care. Plus in days of Jordan & Magic we’d see. Them be in the zone of goals running free.

Sports gurus wonder out loud. If mindset has become to proud. Getting lost in the fat-check digits. But reduced play and passion so midget. When Jordan and them did their thing. It was more than just about the ring. Work hard, play smart the same. Lots of dunks and a complete game.

Cheers heard for Durant & Westbrook score. With tag-team pass and shot on the floor. Then the high-fives made it feel. Like they were keeping it real. Why best plays in game from go-getters. Are like best work at office of team players. Maybe next time before Irving is old. He’ll say ‘lets’ groove’ for pure gold.

Theme:–The Year of ‘Uppertunity’ – Get Lifted!”
With Higher Hopes, Bolder Dreams and Greater Teams (Old-School Flava)

What do NBA stars and MBA greats have in common? For the NBA it’s the annual dunk-fest and 3-point shooting contest. Many of them were the usually suspects. But there were some new kids on the block. The oldtimers & newbies put on a show with high-flying feats and ‘high-fives’ in the seats.

The all-star game has been around for six decades. It’s as much a game as it is a commercial enterprise. The players put on a show on the court. Recording artists put on a show on the stage. Together it’s all about bringing together the ‘creative chops’ of NBA ballers with the musical talents of hit-makers.

Many of the NBA stars and MBA greats (Mega Bank Account) started from the bottom with a big dream. Washington Wizards guard John Wall’s story is one of turning the loss of his father at a young age into motivation. He remembers his mother’s dedication in working multiple jobs to raise the family.

Wall is using his passion, life experience and skill execution as workplace genius. He hopes to be counted among one of the best point guards ever. He’s focused on raising his game and market appeal. While other real MBA minds or front-office bosses are raising the brand to the utmost in market brilliance.

So it was another day at the office for NBA stars and MBA greats. Russell Westbrook was named game MVP. Stephen Curry won the 3-point shooting contest. Zach LaVine was the runaway winner in the slam-dunk. They delivered creative chops and workplace genius, leading the way in market brilliance.

Another day at the office for NBA stars. Another day for MBA greats beyond fancy cars. From a night of jams at the dunk-fest. To loud cheers at the 3-point contest. Many of the oldtimers were in place. With some newbies showing their face. A slew of high-flying b-ball feats. And ‘high-fives’ in the arena seats.

All-star game going six decades strong. Rookies and breakout stars get to come along. As much a game played for the fun. As a biz enterprise making a run. Players put on a show for the fans. Recording artists put on a show with their bands. Creative chops of NBA ballers. Musical talents of today’s hit-makers.

As players they started-out with big dreams. MBA greats (Mega Bank Account) getting to the big leagues. Washington Wizards star-story of John Wall. Turning the loss of his father into getting the call. Setting a goal fueled by motivation. Reaching new heights inspired by Mom’s dedication.

Wall uses life experience as fire. Skill and workplace genius going even higher. As point guard he’s ready for the test. Hopes to be counted as one of the best. Raising his game and market appeal. Working real hard at getting a steal. MBA execs and mgmt chiefs lifting brand. To mega market brilliance in the stand.

What do NBA stars and MBA greats share as twins? Trying hard to get more wins. Russell Westbrook named game MVP. Stephen Curry won 3-point shooting spree. Zack LaVine runaway winner in the slam-dunk. His jams had a whole lot of spunk. Creative chops, passion and leadership brilliance in the trunk.
