Memphis Magic Elite win adidas Super 64

The Memphis Magic Elite won the adidas Super 64 on Sunday.

They beat the New England Playaz in the title game.

The Memphis team consists of multiple high-major prospects -- most notably Joe Jackson (ranked 17th in the Class of 2010), Tarik Black (ranked 57th in the Class of 2010) and Adonis Thomas (ranked 15th in the Class of 2011). Another is Chris Crawford, who is unranked nationally. But Crawford won the adidas Super 64 with a floater at the buzzer, and he'll now watch as offers from area schools come rolling in thanks to a strong effort in Las Vegas.

As for Jackson, he only enhanced his status with his play.

The 5-foot-11 point guard showed a unique ability to get to the rim and run a team en route to taking MVP honors, and he won multiple games with clutch plays down the stretch. The reward should be a rise in his national ranking heading into his senior year at White Station High. In fact, I won't be surprised if Jackson is ultimately considered the best true point guard in the nation not named Brandon Knight.

The chick who plays Daphne was born in Memphis.

Well, that's filmed in Shreveport and I go down there all the time.  Since we both live in Hernando you can catch a ride with me and run with her in the woods if you want.

I wouldn't recommend it though since Shreveport really sucks except for Ernest's Orleans Restaurant.

Gary,

Jessica is the 17 year old vampire, and I think even True Blood won't cross that statutory line drawn in the sand, even though the person playing her is obviously older than 17.  I believe you are thinking of Daphne, who continues to tease nudity like the naughty little shape shifter she is.

I love Jessica, and I don't even mind that big scratch on her back or that she's a shape-shifter.

Nobody's perfect.

Gary - As soon as Jessica gets naked like Sookie True Blood will be the best show on TV.

Let's address all these questions at once ...

1. Is this job 9-to-5?

No.

It's all days and all hours, and that's sort of the way I operate. Plus, I had a red-eye home from Las Vegas last night. But I barely slept on the plane, so I slept most of today, and now I'm wide-awake.

2. What's the Little Lady doing?

She is asleep. We watched True Blood, Hung and Entourage. She fell asleep. I came upstairs.

3. Is Joe Jackson going to play for Memphis?

Yes, I think so.

Honestly, most coaches have stopped recruiting him hard because they assume that regardless of what Joe says publicly and regardless of how long it drags out, he will ultimately sign with Memphis. Again, that's not just my opinion; that's the opinion of Division 1 coaches. Everybody seems to think Joe is a lock for Memphis, that he's simply the type of kid who has little interest in leaving home.

Parrish, what are you doing posting @ 1:45am ....lol.  Hasn't cbs figured out you're one of their top bloggers?  Why are they working you so hard, and what's your lil lady doing while you slave away...........lol.  I thought working for cbssports.com was a 9-5 stint.

Yet, the question begs to be asked, is Tarik Black the son of Tank Black ?
