Everyone knows that Dallas, TX is football country. But basketball is growing. Could it be because of the big athletes like LaMarcus Aldridge going to the NBA? Or is the fear of football concussions driving more players to hoop? Devin Williams (Shift Team HQ) heads to the land where everything is “BIG” to find out what’s happening.

“Heart of the City” is a documentary web series that tells the story of 6 North American cities through the lens of basketball. Each episode focuses on a different city and throws the viewer into the middle of the hoops scene. Every journey needs a guide and ours is Devin Williams of Shift Team HQ. Devin is a trainer, a former player, and a student of the game.

Throughout the series, Devin watches up-and-coming local players try to become the city’s best and spends time in the gym with top trainers and coaches.

But that’s not it... We also dive deeper into the day-to-day lives of the characters who define the game in their city. We see what their lives look like. Where they come from. Where they’re going. What drives them. It’s a ground-level, slice of life approach that, at the end of an episode, is both a pulse-taking of each city’s basketball culture, but also a portrait of that city itself.

Coliseum City Origins: Coliseum Stadium Plan For Oakland Athletics Revealed
Oakland Coliseum City: Frank Dobson, Bob Leste, Steve Lowe Had Oakland As Stadium Plan Before Coliseum City  http://www.zennie62blog.com/2013/10/07/frank-dobson-bob-leste-steve-lowe-had-oakland-as-stadium-plan-before-coliseum-city-56582/ -- The Commissioner of Baseball on Monday announced a new committee devoted to determining the viability of baseball in the East Bay.  In his statements Commissioner Bud Selig said that the As owners have exhausted their efforts in Oakland. But really, they have not.  Heres an example in this plan for a new Coliseum baseball stadium on the parking lot land of the facility.  

The plan, created by architect Frank Dobson and Retail Leasing expert Bob Leste with Oaklander Steve Lowe was first introduced in 2004 and while it was presented to the then-new ownership group and As Managing Partner Lew Wolff, it went largely ignored by them.  Wolff was known to be in love with a concept called a baseball village and needed a lot of land to make that work, hence the Fremont land chase.  

But the idea called for hundreds of acres of land, more than the As organization could afford given the economy and so needing public money turned to Fremont, which turned a deaf ear to their request.   

Wolff has not wanted to be in Oakland, but the Mayors Sports and Entertainment Task Force wants to maintain the As here in Oakland.  To that end, it supports the plan youre about to see in this video.   

The plan needs to be upgraded for 2009 and a financing plan developed.   It also lacks an economic impact analysis and a job development report.  But just eyeballing the plan I can say it can generate about 10,000 construction jobs and 4,000 permanent jobs.  It calls for a new stadium, a parking structure, and a retail structure at the Coliseum as well as an enlarged BART bridge.   The total cost is about $440 million but we at the task force understand that was a 2004 estimate.  

The video shows much of Bob Lestes presentation to the task force last Thursday and the discussion as well as the plan itself.
