Vince Carter vs. Charles Barkley? 6

The TNT crew caught up with Orlando Magic guard Vince Carter as the team prepared for tonight's matchup with the Atlanta Hawks to discuss his improving postseason play, Orlando's domination of the Hawks, and what VC, Dwight Howard and co. would need to do to pull off a series sweep. Pretty cool behind-the-scenes coverage...

But not the reason I'm posting this.

Stick around until the end of the interview, when Cheryl Miller asks Carter what he'd say if he were allowed to ask Charles Barkley one question. Carter's response? Comedy.

The 2010 Jordan Brand Classic -- an annual All-Star game for some of the top high school basketball players in the world -- was held last week in New York City, and when the players arrived in the Big Apple, was there to chronicle what happened!

Keep reading for a Q&A I conducted with Harrison Barnes*, the No. 1 high school player in the country (according to ESPNU). We discuss his basketball future (Barnes will be attending the University of North Carolina this fall), his hobbies, and a whole lot more! Also, be sure to check back later in the week for more pics and videos from the 2010 JBC, as well as my performance grades for all the players in the East vs. West game...

Move Over Wendell Scott... 11

You guys should know the drill by now: every now and again, I use the space afforded to me at to point out some of the finest young sports talent in the country (And for those of you that don't know... check here. And here).

This week, I'd like to show some love to a youngster on the NASCAR circuit.

"Why NASCAR, Duane From NJ" (I can hear you!)? Well, because Sergio Pena -- in addition to the fact that he's arguably the finest driver yet to roll out of NASCAR's Drive for Diversity program (an initiative designed to increase the number of qualified minorities driving and working inside NASCAR) -- has managed to make a name for himself in racing circles at an age when he should be busy finishing his homework.

The 16-year-old debuted in NASCAR's K&N Pro Series, the top developmental series in the land, late last month, finishing second at the Toyota All-Star Showdown and giving 19-year-old phenom (and TAS Showdown winner) Joey Logano all he could handle in the process. Had he won, Pena  would've become the youngest driver ever to finish first at the Toyota All-Star Showdown, smashing Logano's current record by a full year.

Just in case there wasn't already enough coolness streaming across television screens this weekend (NBA All-Star Weekend, 2010 Winter Olympics), Nike has decided to make all of our viewing choices even more complicated with a new commercial. It's not supposed to air until tonight... but this is the internet age! Who waits to see commercials on TV nowadays?

This one's called Human Chain, and is meant to showcase the determination and drive that can be found in all great athletes, regardless of sport.
