Summertime Basketball Is Heatin' Up!

"It's gettin' hot in here"
"It's gettin' hot in here"
"It's gettin' hot, hot, hot in here" as the song goes, and so does the season of summer basketball.

You already know the WNBA is heatin' up, and the NBA finals are in full affect. (At least for another week).

You know about last weekend's Celeb Basketball Game.

The Goodman League is always exciting. (They really should put together a web site).

Then, there's the NPBL summer basketball league.

Speaking of weekend basketball, this weekend won't dissapoint either as the Hoop Dreams 3-on-3 basketball tourney heats up again this year.

You probably know how this annual event got started, and it continues this Saturday at 3rd and Penn Avenue.

Good competition, a few celebs come through, and it's all for a good cause. For more info visit

New to the DC UrbanSports blog is the Spotlight of the Week where each week (hopefully) we put the spotlight on an interesting idea, item, or figure in the world of sports.

This week's spotlight is on WNBA's Lisa Leslie and her new book Don't Let The Lipstick Fool You: The Making of a Champion.

Lisa is a three-time Olympic gold medalist, three-time MVP of the WNBA, and the first woman ever to dunk in a professional basketball game.

Off the court, Lisa is a mom, and a former fashion model.
