NBA Bloggers Exposed!... Lucas of "The Rising Suns"

In our first installment of NBA Bloggers Exposed!, SunsGossip blows up the spot on “Ra” aka “Lucas” aka the humble narrator of our favorite Phoenix blog, The Rising Suns.

Though claiming to be a professional graphic designer, Lucas is so prolific on his blog that we weren’t sure he even had a day job. But there is evidence that he’s tethered to the indoor cubicle: despite living in sunny Phoenix, this entertaining blogger is as white as the day is long.

Melanin-challenged Lucas was easy to spot when sifting through file pictures. In June he attended the Phoenix stop of the And-1 Mixtape Tour which brought out all 4% of Phoenix’s browner population. Ten points for the first reader who can spot our brother of the Caucasian persuasion in this picture.


Lucas did not immediately return phone calls, but in a prepared statement the self-proclaimed "sun god" did admit to being extra-pasty. “Seriously, I glow in the dark.”

Oh. Man. This is awesome.

"which brought out all 4% of Phoenix’s browner population."

Actually Phoenix probably has a 50% brown population with all the tan skinned Hispanics and our share of Katrina refugees. But yes I do have a day job.

Charlie Murphy might be the Darkness, but I'm glow-in-the-darkness.

Your cartoons are killing it!

My favorite part of And 1 Basketball is how they give all of the white ball players professional names...i.e.

"The Professor", "The Scientist", "The Chemist", "The Physicist", etc. Aaaaaay Yoooo!!!

Check my little blurb on And 1 ball:
