Great Point Guards of Humanity: California

This was inspired by watching Beat Junkies/Stones Throw legend and California’s own J. Rocc throw down a set late in 2016. He looked just like a floor general in total command of the ball, his team, the crowd and the game—only with turntables and a mic.

Melbourne born and raised. My hobbies over the years have included dunk contests on the 8 foot rim in Paul Vido's backyard, skipping uni to play pickup from dawn til dusk and a short-lived career as a point guard with a broken jumpshot. More recently, Paul and I ran a moderately successful operation over at The Baseline Leaner which covered the NBA and NBL. You can now find us in The Locker Room @ Downtown - continuing our mission to provide the world with unique basketball content and generally behaving strangely. Follow me on Twitter @32MJ32
