D-Jukes ready for HoopsAid

HoopsAid is set to take place on September 15th with various celebrities, Olympic, Paralympic and Battle-back stars set to join in the fun.

The Olympic Copper Box is set to host what should be a thoroughly enjoyable basketball occasion and one of the names involved is D-Jukes.

If you've not heard of D-Jukes, then you should have! He has been played in BBC Radio 1Xtra and you can have a listen to his song by clicking the play button next to it on THIS Charlie Sloth page.

D-Jukes is involved in both playing and performing at HoopsAid 2013 and has been involved in the official anthem 'Dreams' - alongside Sophia May and EckSell.

Speaking ahead of the event D-Jukes says he is glad he has the opportunity to give back to charity at HoopsAid.

He said: "At the event I will be performing and also playing, I've got my new song 'Good Times' which I will be singing at the event."

"It was a very easy decision to take part in HoopsAid as it's giving back and do something for people in need."

"It's very important [for people in the public eye] to use their following so people can help the cause and to get our fans to support it."

D-Jukes is working on a US|UK Radio Mixtape with the likes of Wretch 32 and Sophia May as his career goes from strength-to-strength.

He is not looking forward to seeing anyone in particular at the event but he is glad so many high profile people are involved.

He continued: "I'm happy to see everyone that is taking part as they are doing something for such a good cause."

"We will be playing against some pros, so it won't be that easy, but I'm looking forward to being involved."

"I've got a new Mixtape coming out as well as a new album called New York City Trafficking."

ROUTLEDGE: "Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it"

Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it
I’m Daniel Routledge and for as long as I can remember I’ve been watching British basketball. I’m not quite as old as the league, but its close enough we could be siblings. We pretty much grew up together, I’ve seen the highs and the lows, the false dawns and the unnoticed successes. 
Much has been made in recent days about the future of the game in this country, so much so it’s got me thinking about the past.
Whatever your views about the road from here, allow me ten minutes of your time to re-live how we got here.
In the beginning
The first national league of basketball was formed in 1972, in those early days it was a largely amateur pursuit, played out in small sports halls. It was before I was born, but I’ve seen minutes of AGMs where players were reprimanded for not personally selling enough tickets!
By the end of the decade, the structure became a bit more professional and as the 1980s began,the popularity started to boom. …

Sullivan - who made over 100 appearances for his country - announced his decision earlier this year.

He led a team to victory one more time yesterday with London beating the World 89-84 in his testimonial.

I haven't really had the pleasure to work with Drew, but to see the way he handled himself on and off the court, you could see he was very serious about his basketball and his success has happened because of that.

"He's won many championships and for sure he has been a real leader on and off the court, for anybody that has worked with him.

"It's sad to see such a talent like th…
