BASKETBALL ON THE MIND AS RED BULL REIGN DRAWS NEARER

Image

The courts have already seen a drastic transformation.  Hoping to restore these iconic courts to their former glory, this re-injection into the game is well-received by the South African basketball community at large.
Former South African Team Captain Tskakani Ngobeni is excited to see the courts finally being put to use again: “Beirut, as we called it back then, was home to some of the most legendary streetball. Many of the original SA Team players including myself honed their skills there. We spent all our time there in our youth -  watching the older guys, learning all their skills.”
“Hosting the Red Bull Reign final there will not only bring back amazing memories for many of us but this refurbishment is also great to honour the roots of the …

Khuli Chana wins big in France

Image
After walking away empty-handed at music award ceremonies on home soil‚ musician Khuli Chana has finally received recognition for his One Source music video. The video won big at the 2017 Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity in France on Wednesday evening. One Source won two silvers and one gold award in the Entertainment categories at the prestigious ceremony‚ held each year to honour the finest creative projects from around the world. The wins came four months after Khuli launched a scathing attack against Metro FM Awards judges for not choosing the video as Music Video of the Year. It was a disappointment that repeated itself at the annual South African Music Awards (SAMAs) a few months later. Speaking to the media, from Cannes on Thursday‚ Khuli said that “it cut deep to not get recognition at home“. “I believe that God has bigger plans for me. I didn’t win a SAMA or Metro FM Award but I scooped a gold (award) at the Cannes Lions‚ on a global stage out of 43‚000 entries‚ t…

Benni McCarthy ready for his first day in the office

Image
Benni McCarthy starts his new life as head coach of Cape Town City when he reports for duty on Thursday. The former Bafana Bafana striker says he will draw on the experience of being an assistant in Belgium in the 2015/16 season‚ a job that solidified in his own mind that he wanted to stay in football. McCarthy worked under Cape Town-raised head coach Chris O’Loughlin at Sint Truiden‚ the current club of South African striker Kurt Abrahams‚ and also says that experience opened his eyes as to what was required for the head of a technical team. The pair ensured that newly-promoted Sint Truiden kept their top-flight status‚ though their contracts were not renewed. O’Loughlin is now a first team coach at English side Charlton Athletic. “It was probably the best thing I could have done because it prepared me for what I am about to face‚” McCarthy says of his time in Belgium. “I got to face the things that football players don’t get to see‚ the hard work that is there‚ the tactical analysis‚ havi…
