The late Byron Aloysius St. Elmo Lee, who was born this day (June 27) in 1935, is said to have formed the first incarnation of his band The Dragonaires all the way back in 1950. Beginning as a mento band during that genre’s heyday, the Dragonaires would leave their mark with signature ska songs like “Jamaica Ska,” and move into reggae and soca as the years went on, while always preserving earlier Jamaican musical traditions. Arguably JA’s most durable band, the Dragonaires have even withstood Lee’s passing five years ago, and continue to perform to this day.

Should the Indiana Pacers upset the defending-champion Miami Heat in tonight’s Game 7 0f the Eastern Conference finals tonight, this year’s NBA Finals will hinge on a battle between a 7-footer from St. Croix, USVI, and a 7″2 son of Jamaican and Trini parents. Not only does Tim Duncan vs. Roy Hibbert have the potential to the best big-man Finals matchup since Jamaican-born Patrick Ewing of the Knicks squared off (and lost) against Nigerian Hakeem Olajuwon of the Houston Rockets n ’94, but a Spurs/Pacers Finals would probably be the biggest look for Caribbean players in the NBA ever.
