Rosario To Get His Release By End Of The Week

IPRB spoke to Mike Rosario this evening and it seems that he is confident that he will get his release from Rutgers by the end of the week. Rosario has yet to confirm where he wants to visit but a source close to Mike advised IPRB that USC, Kentucky, Arizona and Florida are all in play.

This is a big decision for Mike and we hope he lands on his feet running and uses this summer and next year to get in better shape and more focused to take his game to the next level.

Summer League Basketball "Bring Your Game Not Your Name"

Its kind of crazy that we do not have an official summer league in PR. I don't mean a bunch of over the hill cats still trying to show people they can play (I'm def one of those guys). I mean a place where we can see the young talent try to tear it down while the current pros let the young boys know who really runs sh@t. In every basketball city (NYC, LA, DC, Chicago) around the world, summertime is SHOWTIME!

Word is that PRP is working to set up a league with DRD for the summer. "Bring Your Game Not Your Name" will be a collection of between 8-12 teams full of talent from high school, collegiate and pro ranks.
Stay tuned for more information.

Betancourt Gets Ready

We had a chance to see Carmelo workout last week at DRD! We are excited as he has agreed to blog for us while he is in NYC next week. The kid is working his ass off and his knee looks strong. He's super excited about playing @ MSG and has set a goal to try and break the assist record. Puerto Rico is officially in the building!

Rosario Transferring

My man Adam Zagoria reported on this story which is not a surprise to any of us. Mike had a horrible season this year and really hurt his brand after his "world tour" with the PR 19U National Team. We are hearing that Florida, Kansas, Kentucky and Arizona could be in the mix.
