Hoops N Hip Hop #14

Hoops N Hip-Hop would like to announce that we've found a new home at Vimeo.com for all our archived videos, shows, and podcasts. It's a great site that has everything you need, highly recommend it!

On that note, here was one of the last shows we were able to do in the studio before we move out to our new digs. We had Darnelle "DJ DNYCE" Patterson stop by to grace us with his presence. The young DJ can be reached here through his facebook for any inquiries. As an official member of the Hoops N Hip-Hop staff, you'll definitely be able to find a lot of his stuff on this site and on our Facebook page!

Cue Jeremy Piven - The Playoffs Are Here



I know we're a little late to the party, but you can #blameschool for that. Besides, better late than never is the motto we'll be using to usher the end of the school year and the start of the summer here at GamePointBlog.

If you tuned in to our final in-studio show of Hoops N Hip-Hop, DJ Johnson (follow him on twitter here: DeeJae_03) and I had guest Chris Willis come in to play a fun game of "Playoff Predictions".

But because teams decided to ruin our fun (we're looking at you Miami and Boston), we had to re-do our our predictions because of seed changes. So without further ado, here they are:

And there you have it. Our petty predictions in a nutshell. Make sure to keep an eye out on a few things like more podcasts and articles from us at GamePointBlog. We'll be breaking down the playoffs as they happen, as well as a promise from Matt Devlin himself to make a guest appearance.

Now I'm off to go back in time as a creepy kid in an attempt to prevent Araujo from ever declaring in the 2004 draft.
