“My No. 1 goal is to play in the NBA. I wanted to be an NBA player before I ever wanted to be a college player. This is about getting ready for the next level faster and more efficiently. Both of my parents went to college. My mom got her masters degree. Education is a big thing in our family, but this is about focusing 100 percent on basketball. You can always go back to college, but theres only a short window as an athlete where you can play professional basketball, and I want to take advantage of that. I think that challenging yourself on a daily basis is the best way to improve.”

Ahead of major visit, Noah Arinze starting to find favoritesThe top 10 for Arinze, which he announced Monday evening, has plenty of Midwest flavor. Schools to make the cut include Kansas, Arkansas State, Arizona State, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa State, Minnesota, Missouri, Oklahoma and Wisconsin.

After reclassifying to the 2019 class, 5-star guard RJ Hampton announced Tuesday that he will play professionally in New Zealand next season rather than playing collegiately.

Kansas Jayhawks Football 2019: Best-Case vs. Worst-Case ScenarioWelcome to the Les Miles era Kansas fans. In this scenario, Kansas will exceed expectations that are relatively as low as 10-foot hole in the ground but no matter what, Kansas could have their best season in what feels like forever in this dream season. To kick off the 2019 season, the Jayhawks welcome in the Indiana State Sycamores where the legendary NBA Hall of famer Larry Bird played his college ball. But this is football and no matter how many people would like to just skip over Kansas football, we wont do that here. Ill chalk that first game up as a win. Next comes a real nail biter when Coastal Carolina travels to Lawrence but just like the first game, Kansas should not have any true issues here. Maybe the scores are close, but the Jayhawks should start off 2-0 to begin 2019. Then comes by far the toughest test in non-conference play as they take on Boston College on the road. My advice? Go to a Red Sox game instead because Boston College should take care of business there. Now, I could go down game by game but that would be a waste of not only my time, but your time as well.

God bless Jay Williams talking about Hampton joining the likes of Brandon Jennings and Emmanuel Mudiay. Not helping man. Giant busts and this kid is next in line. #kubball

R.J. Hampton Faces Long Odds of NBA Stardom by Signing Overseas

Lakers 2.0 – The failed reboot of the NBAs crown jewelIN THE WEEKS after the Los Angeles Lakers 2016-17 season ended in mid-April, with the franchise failing to reach the postseason for the fourth consecutive year, more than 30 Lakers staffers — largely from basketball operations — gathered at the teams practice facility in El Segundo, California.

Serenas outfit, game make statement in ParisSerena Williams opening matches at any Grand Slam are always on the radar. And while the 23-time Grand Slam winners play made the ultimate statement on Monday, Williams fashion statement in first-round play at the French Open made plenty of headlines as well.

Hampton is the No. 5 prospect in the class of 2019. Hamptons decision comes as a surprise after he cut his college recruitment list in recent days to Kansas, Memphis and Texas Tech. He had also previously considered scholarship offers from Duke, Kentucky and others.

Bill Buckner dies at 69 after battling dementia”After battling the disease of Lewy Body Dementia, Bill Buckner passed away early the morning of May 27th surrounded by his family,” his family said in a statement. “Bill fought with courage and grit as he did all things in life. Our hearts are broken but we are at peace knowing he is in the arms of his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.”

Kerr — KD to miss Game 1; Cousins questionable”KDs not playing Game 1,” Warriors head coach Steve Kerr said after Mondays practice. “I think we already announced that, and well see where it goes from here. This is where the fact that theres a lot of days in between games during the Finals helps us, so well see.”

Recently, and most notably, Brandon Jennings, Emmanuel Mudiay and Terrance Ferguson took similar chances. Jennings was the first in 2008, and played in Italy for a year. Mudiay went to China and Furgeson played in Australia. All three were drafted in the first round, so that’s a success in a sense, but none emerged as stars in the NBA, at least not yet. Jennings has been a journeyman in the NBA and is currently without a team, Mudiay has averaged 11.8 points and 4.2 assists in his career and Ferguson has been a non-factor with the Thunder in his first two years in the league. Mudiay and Ferguson still have time to develop, but so far it hasn’t been a star-studded welcome to the league.

Of course, their paths don’t dictate Hampton’s. He’s a different person with a different game, different people around him, and different opportunities. He could go to New Zeland and improve enough to enter the NBA as a ready-made star. But he could do the same in the U.S. and get more coverage because, let’s face it, New Zealand basketball highlights don’t make waves over here.

Knife-Wielding Man Kills 2, Injures 17 In Japan Mass Stabbing : NPRAt least two victims are dead, including an 11-year-old girl, and about 17 others were injured in a mass stabbing attack near Tokyo, Tuesday morning.

Instead, Hampton — who had his college list down to Kansas, Memphis and Texas Tech — opted to make money as a professional and test himself against adults. Its an interesting bet to go overseas, and one top prospects havent often made before. Emmanuel Mudiay is perhaps the most highly regarded prospect to try it (he played in China for a year), and he was selected No. 7 overall. Terrence Ferguson went to Australia and still went in the first round, but he wasnt as highly regarded as Hampton.

Rethinking Disaster Recovery After A California Town Is Leveled By Wildfire : NPRWhen the Camp Fire raced into the Northern California town of Paradise on Nov. 8, destroying nearly 19,000 structures and claiming 85 lives, Chris Beaudis narrowly escaped. He drove out of the Sierra foothills in his Ford Bronco with only his pit bull. He lost everything and has no insurance.

Hampton deserves his status as a five-star prospect — very athletic with great size for the combo-guard position, versatile scoring off the dribble and good instincts as a passer. ESPN lists Hampton as the No. 5 prospect in the 2020 class behind James Wiseman, Cole Anthony, Isaiah Stewart and Anthony Edwards, but a great college season — with his skill set — could have unquestionably vaulted Hampton into the top three in his draft class.

My No. 1 goal is to play in the NBA, Hampton told ESPN. I wanted to be an NBA player before I ever wanted to be a college player. This is about getting ready for the next level faster and more efficiently. Both of my parents went to college. My mom got her masters degree. Education is a big thing in our family, but this is about focusing 100 percent on basketball. You can always go back to college, but theres only a short window as an athlete where you can play professional basketball, and I want to take advantage of that. I think that challenging yourself on a daily basis is the best way to improve.
