ESPN | Dwight Gooden too high for parade

While his 1986 New York Mets teammates basked in the glory of millions during a ticker tape parade to celebrate their World Series title, Dwight Gooden sat in a drug dealer’s apartment, too high and paranoid to join them.

Talking about his career and life, Gooden told ESPN’s E:60 (airing Wednesday, 8 p.m. ET) that that’s how his celebration of the World Series went after the star right-hander became hooked on cocaine during that season. [ESPN]

Fat Joe thinks his Knicks can beat the Heat
Fat Joe has been in the rap game for what’s about to become his 20th year in the business. That’s quite an accomplishment, as we’ve seen many rappers debut with one album, never to be heard from again. Born and raised in the Boogie Down Bronx, the Puerto Rican rapper made it his goal to put Latinos in the map, introducing himself to hip-hop masses with “Represent” in 1993. Over his career, he’s been involved in some feuds, most famously with 50 Cent with both New York rappers squashing their drama. Fat Joe has put together 10 albums with one more on the way next year, which could very well be his last. When Fat Joe is not in the studio during the months of the basketball calendar, he’s either home in Miami watching his beloved New York Knicks, or in the front row at Madison Square Garden. Fat Joe spoke with Playbook about discovering Big Pun, James Harden and the Rockets, Raymond Felton, and his theory that the Knicks will knock off the Miami Heat this season. [READ MORE]
