MJ to host Obama “Shoot-Around” and Dinner Fundraiser

@SportsBata ..nuff said

#MJ and #Melo are working a fundraiser “shoot-around” and dinner on Aug 22 to help raise $$$ for the #Obama campaign! #MJ and #NBA Commissioner David Stern will co-host the $20K a person dinner extravaganza! The “shoot-around” will be at Chelsea Piers sports complex and include Knicks’ #Melo, Nets’ Joe Johnson, Rajon Rondo, John Wall, Paul Pierce, Kyrie Irving, and former NBA centers Patrick Ewing and Alonzo Mourning. WNBA stars Sheryl Swoopes and Dawn Staley will also be there as well. They will be charging $5K for a personal one-on-one shoot-around, and $250 for a autograph session. A wee bit pricey.. In other #NBA news, #JLin has told his fans to still root for the Knicks, and Kenyon Martin is considering signing with the #Brooklyn Nets.

Mike Tyson and Spike Lee teamed up for the ‘Undisputed Truth’ on Broadway! It started July 28 and runs through August 12, and traces Tyson’s life from a roughneck youth in Brooklyn to a contemporary Vegas Vegan. Tyson’s wife Kiki wrote the script, and Spike Lee put it into work. It has been getting top reviews. Seperately, Spike Lee vouched that he will not root for the Nets even though he is from #Brooklyn, and Floyd Mayweather and Bob Arum are set to meet to discuss a possible Pacquiao match in the future!

The #NFL Seattle Seahawks have signed T.O. to a one-year deal worth $1 Million Monday afternoon! T.O. couldn’t buy a contract last year coming off of knee surgery, but impressed the Seahawks this time around running a 4.45 40! T.O. is the talk of the camp!
