Anyone here ever visit HoopsTV.com? If so, where did it go? It was working a couple days ago but now I just get a "Access Forbidden" error msg. I hope they didn't shut down, cuz that was a pretty good site. It's a little (no, make that a LOT) on the ghetto side but it actually had a pretty slick design (unlike every other bball site on the Net).

I guess they went broke. That's what happens when you have white people trying to write like they're hip hoppers. They just replaced 'see' with 'peep' and dunk with 'cram.'

You must download some of those playground movies though if you still can. The dribbling ones are simply amazing

I think so. ESPN took off their HoopsTV section.

Yes, it did shut down for good. I was a regular there. I have actually heard a couple of reasons why it shut down. I heard it was because lack of money. I also heard that it was because the moderators didn't moderate what was being posted on the boards by a few childish kids, and all of the companies advertising there pulled their adds/money. It was a cool site though except for all the childish posts though.

Hey Dallmav what's up? School's been busy- exams. I haven't really been able to listen to any because Mavs games are on during schools, so only on Sautrday and Sunday mornings but I am normally not awake then i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif
