Camden Basketball Star DJ Wagner is Third-Generation Hoops Royalty

Wagner, a junior at Camden High School, is the son and grandson of legendary Camden players. He s also one of the top prospects in the country. The atmosphere at the Peak Skills Basketball facility in West Berlin was suitably casual, as one might expect it to be on a sunny Sunday afternoon in October. Players milled about. Fans chatted as they settled into the bleachers. On the court, the proceedings between teams from Camden High School and Hamilton Hall Academy predictably lacked the intensity that regular-season action brings. For a little while. Then, the referees ignored a goaltending violation, and the players started chirping at each other. Camden coach Rick Brunson, who was at the game in an unofficial capacity, but who wanted to see his team show a little fire, preseason or not, became agitated. A fun Sunday had lost its relaxed vibe. Amid the swirl, Camden junior DJ Wagner remained somewhat aloof. He shook his head at the blown call. He listened to the chatter. Then he took over. The 6-foot 3-inch, 165-pound Wagner stole a Hamilton Hall pass, zipped through three defenders, and converted a lefty layup in heavy traffic. The next possession, he drilled a three-pointer from the top of the key. Not long after, he took a pass and made a lightning move to the hoop for a layup and was fouled. As the first half wound down, Wagner drove across the lane to the right, made a jump stop in the middle, and improbably slithered back to his left to draw a foul on a layup try. He made both free throws. Suddenly, the nation s number one prospect in the class of 2023 according to ESPN, Rivals and 247Sports had cooled everything down with his ability to dominate the game and eliminate any heat that Hamilton Hall had generated. Camden won the game 62\u201336, with Wagner doing what was necessary, when it was necessary, to facilitate the victory.

Men鈥檚 Basketball Picks Up Dominant Home NJAC Win over Ramapo, 81-65

JERSEY CITY, N.J. \u2013 The New Jersey City University men's basketball team picked up a much-needed victory at the friendly confines of the John J. Moore Athletics and Fitness Center (JMAC) on Saturday afternoon, Jan. 8, as the Gothic Knights defeated Ramapo College 81-65 in to get back over .500 in New Jersey Athletic Conference (NJAC) play. Prior to the game, fans in attendance gave a standing ovation to senior tri-captain guard Denzel Banks (Newark, NJ/East Orange Campus) as he was recognized for his accomplishment in the team's last game when he became the 30th member of the men's basketball program's illustrious 1,000-career point club. As for the game itself, NJCU (7-7, 4-3 NJAC) got things started quickly against the Roadrunners (2-9, 1-6 NJAC) in the first half by taking a commanding 13-point, 22-9 lead with 13:18 to go. Senior forward Kayton Darley (North Bergen, N.J./North Bergen) was firing on all cylinders over the first 20 minutes and missed just one shot on eight attempts to lead all players with 15 points. When things were all said and done, Darley finished the day with a game-high 21 points (9-of-13 FGs) and Banks was just one point behind him with 20. The duo combined to go 7-of-12 from the three-point line. The Gothic Knights held that double-digit lead for most of the remainder of the half before taking a 10-point, 41-31 lead into the break. Jersey City grew its lead to as many as 21 points in the second half before taking the game by 16 at the end of the afternoon. NJCU started off the half with a quick 6-0 run to establish control. Moving forward, anytime Ramapo would make a little run of a few points here and there, the Gothic Knights would shut it down with some momentum-shifting buckets. It seemed that each time the Roadrunners got something going offensively, Darley or Banks would drill a three or the new big-man, freshman center Ben Todd (Woodland Hills, Calif./El Camino Real) would make a play down low to earn three points the old fashion way. One other storyline heading into the game was that of senior tri-captain guard Jason Battle (Jersey City, N.J./Roselle Catholic), who played his first two collegiate seasons as a member of the Roadrunners. He averaged 30.8 minutes per game and started in all 52 appearances of his Ramapo career. He dished out 3.1 assists and scored 8.6 points per game, including 10.7 as a sophomore. In his first game against his former institution, Battle saw 28 minutes in the start, going 2-for-4 with six points and led all players with a career-high nine assists.

Knicks vs Pacers Picks and Predictions: Road Weary NY Lacks Firepower

The New York Knicks picked up a win against the Spurs last night but heading to Indiana to face the Pacers may be too much for an undermanned Knicks team. Find out if they can cover as the underdog in our NBA betting picks. Coming off a back-to-back may seem a disadvantage for the New York Knicks, but at least they are intent on winning.

Steelers鈥?appreciation for Cam Heyward only grows 鈥?as does his impressive resume

As Justin Herbert galloped like a gazelle past the second and third levels of the Steelers defense, there was Cam Heyward, the 6-foot-5, 295-pound defensive tackle in his 11th season, willing himself to chase down the second-year quarterback nearly 40 yards downfield. By the time he made that improbable tackle, the huffing and puffing had set in for the 32-year-old whose asthma and allergies were so bad as a kid that he once found himself in UPMC Children s Hospital of Pittsburgh around Christmastime.Even on a play the Chargers gained 36 yards, and even in a game the Steelers lost, it was one of those plays that will come rushing back in the minds of fans years from now when they look back on Heyward s innumerable contributions to his team and his city. But why wait until he s gone? In the spirit of Thanksgiving, Pittsburghers should be plenty thankful now for a player who has long been great but often quietly, sometimes off the radar.Not this year. The NFL world is seeing one of the best people in the league have one of the best seasons in the league. Heyward has 4 ? sacks, already more than the four he had in 2020, a forced fumble and recovery, an interception and a whopping seven passes deflected, a number that not only leads the team but ranks second in the NFL among non-defensive backs (Dolphins defensive end Emmanuel Ogbah has eight in one more game played).While those stats are impressive, they likely aren t prolific enough to garner much NFL Defensive Player of the Year consideration over players at other positions with more sacks and interceptions. But those watching Heyward on a weekly basis know his impact in a thankless role is going far beyond the box score, and not just on the field. His batted pass against Herbert that led to a Cam Sutton interception in the fourth quarter was another indelible image that will be on the short list of Heyward s most memorable plays, though that list might not be so short if he keeps having what could be the most dominant run of his three-time All-Pro career (so far). \u201cCam is Cam, man. He gives everything he s got,\u201d coach Mike Tomlin said after the Chargers game. \u201cThat s why we love him and respect him. That s why we elected him as a captain and that s why he represents us in that way.\u201dTwo weeks ago, on a chilly November night in the Strip District, Heyward was holding court at Coop de Ville, the chicken sandwich restaurant on Smallman Street. Heyward had on a vintage NFL lettermen jacket over top of his favorite jersey, the Pitt Panthers No. 34 that his dad Craig, better known as \u201cIronhead,\u201d wore for four years in this same city.It was a fitting get-up for the annual Heyward House gala, the biggest fundraiser for the Cameron Heyward Foundation he founded in 2015. After a one-year hiatus due to the uncertainty of 2020, the event was back in full force, with more than a dozen current or former Steelers joining in on the fun and proof of COVID-19 vaccination or a negative test required at the door to ensure a safe evening. TV screens around the bar flashed photos of past outings, whether it was Heyward hanging out with patients at Children s Hospital, talking to them via Zoom, or kids enjoying one of the free mini-libraries in underserved Pittsburgh neighborhoods that were part of a new initiative last year during the pandemic.\u201cI just have to say how special this guy is,\u201d said Heyward s mother, Charlotte who s instrumental in his foundation to guests that night. \u201cYou guys see him on the field giving 150, 200 percent every play every game. But he s this kind of person off the field, too. I m just so proud of him.\u201dFor his part, Heyward deflected the praise to his mom, other family members and most of all his wife, Allie, who runs the show for Cam and their three children to \u201ckeep us all centered,\u201d as he put it.

A losing team鈥檚 merch: Sports consumerism feeds international landfills

At Super Bowl LIV, Patrick Mahomes naysayers were proved correct when the San Francisco 49ers overtook the Kansas City Chiefs in a resounding win. A year later, in the 2021 NBA finals, the Phoenix Suns edged over the Milwaukee Bucks to win the championship, robbing the Bucks of their comeback story. And last weekend at the Big Game, Stanford beat Cal, marking another year in which the Axe will remain in Palo Alto. What do all of these sports moments have in common?None of them ever happened.But it wouldn t be so out of the ordinary to spot someone in a T-shirt or jersey that claims otherwise depending on where you looked. These alternative reality T-shirts are quite real and can be found almost anywhere in countries such as Ghana, Kenya or Nigeria.After large sporting events, such as the Super Bowl or NBA finals, fans want to get merchandise as quickly as possible, and retailers don t want to miss out on the initial surge in demand. Before the event, manufacturers and retailers produce and stock two sets of merch shirts, hats, jerseys and more. The losing team s merch is donated to charity, where it enters the mass of discarded clothing sent abroad, predominantly to Eastern Africa or South America. Following periods of colonial extraction, these regions were forced by Western governments to undergo rapid economic liberalization, and they were later deemed desperate for basic needs support by the very nations that exploited them. Presently, the United States exports its unwanted trash to these nations under the guise of charity.Prevailing lines of thought in the United States often dissuade critical thinking after all, isn t \u201ccharity\u201d a good thing? But the dark underbelly of American consumerism operates in the dark, hiding beneath notions of charity or international aid. It s a virtually invisible market, far out of sight and out of mind for the vast majority of American sports fans.But for those living in the final resting spot for the United States clothing waste, the effects are quite hard to miss. In Ghana, for example, this cycle ends in environmental disaster. Weekly delivery trucks flood Ghana, leaving bales of textiles that the locals call Obroni Wawu, or \u201cDead White Man s Clothes.\u201d This torrent of clothing is a direct result of fast fashion trends in the United States and Europe, a cycle ending in countless items being discarded and \u201cdonated\u201d abroad. Ghanaians are forced to divert an estimated 40% of this clothing to landfills. Often, rain carries the clothing to the sea, where it either clogs waterways or accumulates on beaches. The clothes that don t make it into the landfill can often be just as harmful, wreaking economic havoc on local economies. Bales of donated clothing are purchased by market traders, who sort through the garments and then resell them. It is a risky livelihood for stallholders, whose income is at the whim of the variable quality of donated clothing. Cheap clothing flooding the market makes it virtually impossible for locally made clothing to become economically viable. In Kenya, for example, the average cost of a secondhand garment from the United States is 5% to 10% of a new garment made locally.Outside of environmental or economic concerns lies the debate over human dignity. If Americans don t want to wear a losing team s shirt, why should Guanians, Kenyans or Nigerians be expected to?Far from experiencing a shortage of basic needs such as clothing, these countries have been inundated with unwanted textiles. Yet, the United States keeps sending more, patting itself on the back for such apparent generosity.The fault does not lie entirely in sports enterprises, as sports merchandise constitutes only a fraction of exported textiles. But piled on beaches or filling landfills in East Africa, sports T-shirts can easily be found, boasting victories that never took place.Consumers of sports merch euphoric from their team s hard-fought victory often don t question how their team s winning merch can be in their hands the very same day. It is just another feature of the American consumerist landscape. But convenience and consumerism in one corner of the world can hold disastrous implications for another.As athletes increasingly enter the activism arena, they should use their platform to promote sustainable and just alternatives. Sports enterprises might only listen to their most lucrative players. American sports fans must also ask the hard questions: Is such immediacy and convenience worth it?After all, a win is a win even if you have to wait a little while for the merch to arrive.

Week 12 NFL Practice Squad Power Rankings: Honoring alumni on Thanksgiving weekend

On Thursday we all reflected on everything we're thankful for as we cleaned our plates while watching a vintage Bears-Lions game, a thrilling overtime Raiders-Cowboys contest that featured 28 penalties, and a Bills beatdown of the Saints. It's the appropriate time for me to give thanks to all the Practice Squad Power Rankings alumni who've graduated to 53-man rosters around the league. Like Cardinals wideout Antoine Wesley, a mainstay on the PSPR in 2019, who's quietly caught eight passes for 114 yards on 11 targets this season. Love it. I'm thankful for his ascension. Or the fact that Giants safety J.R. Reed, who lived on the PSPR last season, finally got his first opportunity in a regular-season game in Week 11 against the Buccaneers, and he looked good with three tackles and only surrendered one grab for three yards in his coverage area. 49ers wideout Jauan Jennings, the PSPR Cover Guy at the outset of the 2020 campaign, has a touchdown this season. Bengals wideout Stanley Morgan, who fluctuated up and down the PSPR for two full years (!) caught a pass last week and is a full-time special teamer in Cincinnati -- hey, you gotta start somewhere. Juwan Johnson -- now a tight end, formerly a wideout -- has nine catches for 108 yards with three touchdowns on 16.1% of the offensive snaps for the Saints this year (that percentage needs to increase, don't you think?). I'm thankful all those, and many other Practice Squad Practice Squad graduates, have gone on to the big leagues and the PSPR is forever behind them. That's the goal, right?Craving even more NFL coverage focusing on previews, recaps, news and analysis? Listen below and follow the Pick Six podcast for a daily dose of NFL goodness.Heading into the weekend, THE CUT -- aka The Call-Up Tracker -- has gotten stagnant. Still at seven. Use The Practice Squad Power Rankings as a resource, NFL front offices. If I've missed anyone, or you hear of a PSPR member getting The Call, alert me @ChrisTrapasso on Twitter, and feel free to use the hashtag #PSPR. Thank you in advance. Your next drink's on me. In a sense, I'm running the Practice Squad Power Rankings parallel to the NFL. That means, as was the case last year, I'm not going to feature "veterans." To continue to maintain the PSPR's sterling integrity, I'll only be including practice-squadders who are rookies, second-year players, or third-year players. That's it. And as you'll see below, I couldn't resist ranking more players, given the increase in practice squad sizes this season. To stay in line with the league's figure, I hope to write about 16 individuals every Friday: 10 officially in the rankings and six honorable mentions.

Toronto Raptors City Edition Uniform: We The North

The Raptors are?a team with a history defined not just by 360-windmill slams or elbow-through-the-rim dunk contest titles, but by the thing that matters most: a ring.In honor of the NBA s 75th season, this uniform honors?the city the team has always called home, driven by the need for expression and building community on and off the court. It s the pride and legacy that drives the 2021-22 Toronto Raptors Nike NBA City Edition Uniform toward a defining, Jurassic-era roar:The?claw-scratch logo and Canadian maple leaf reminds fans of the team s roots. The popular black base and gold trim return, with the iconic dino logo, scrawled across the chest. But this time, the signature Raptors style is remixed, donning the look from the 2019 title-winners and flipping its direction from the Hardwood Classic execution. The Raptor is looking back at the team s history, rather than forward, grounding it back in the larger anniversary.The jagged pinstriping and short design echo the team s inaugural uniforms from a quarter-century ago. Today s claw-scratch logo appears on the shorts, with a Canadian maple leaf on the waistband reminding fans of the team s roots and its future: We?The?North. These uniforms are a celebration of fandom.

Eagles going with all black uniforms against the Saints

The Philadelphia Eagles will be wearing their black pants for the second week in a row.But whereas they wore white jerseys in their Week 10 win over the Denver Broncos, the Birds will now be sporting matching black tops in Week 11 at home against the New Orleans Saints.The last time the Eagles wore their alternate all-black look? December 13, 2020 in a win over the ... New Orleans Saints. It was the Eagles most recent win at Lincoln Financial Field.Perhaps not a total coincidence that they re going back to the look that worked for them last year. Especially considering the Eagles typically save their all-black uniforms for start times later than 1:00 PM ET.Regardless of what they re wearing, the Eagles can count on the Saints bringing fight to this week s matchup. Sean Payton seems to dislike the Eagles and his team has thrived as underdogs in recent history. The Saints are also really trying to avoid dropping their third straight game as they try to stay alive in the NFC playoff picture.It s a big game and the Eagles will be rocking their alternate jerseys for it.
