During this week, Miami Heat star Dwyane Wade was doing the rounds on the book publicity tour for his brand new memoir called, "A Father First: How My Life Became Bigger than Basketball".

As most known, Wade grew up on the tough streets of Chicago and had lived a rather trying life. In one of the passages in the book found by Ball Don't Lie, we learn that little D-Wade looked up to television actor in particular:
In [Wade's] darkest days of a difficult youth, he turned to watching "Knight Rider" alongside his grandmother, writing, "I actually told David Hasselhoff how he helped me get through the tough times in childhood."
Since this post is related to David Hasselhoff, that allows me to post this:

Mario Chalmers Doesn't Think Rajon Rondo Is Best Point Guard in NBA, But He'll Put Himself in Top 10

Mario Chalmers has let the world know plenty of times that he thinks he's pretty good. The way he makes it sound, he was the Heat's missing link -- the thing that got the pack of All-Stars over the top and finally hoisting the Larry O'Brien trophy. LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh? Part of the team, but just as much a part of the team as Chalmers, who should be...

Mario Chalmers' giant ego lists him in the top tier of NBA point guards

I was going to do a nifty little gimmick for this piece where I started each paragraph with the name of an NBA point guard that I think is better than Miami Heat PG Mario Chalmers. Then I realized that there is no way I could write that many paragraphs unless I started making new ones halfway through every sentence. Boston Celtics PG Rajon Rondo recently said that he was the...
