  • Did Anyone Else Notice LeBron Coaching the Cavs Last Night?

    Did Anyone Else Notice LeBron Coaching the Cavs Last Night?

    Officially, David Blatt is head coach of the Cleveland Cavaliers. That’s what it says on the team website, and I imagine that’s also what it says on David Blatt’s paycheck. So then why was LeBron coaching the Cavs last night against the Spurs? That is a very good question. Perhaps, in his zeal to win […]

  • Spurs Beat Cavs After LeBron James Turnover on Final Play (Video)

    Spurs Beat Cavs After LeBron James Turnover on Final Play (Video)

    I’m quite certain that by the end of the NBA regular season, all will be well in Cleveland.  But for the time being, the Cleveland Cavaliers are a disappointing 5-5 following a 92-90 home loss to the San Antonio Spurs that was capped off with a LeBron James turnover on the final play of the game. […]

    Foot Locker Ad Shows Tim Duncan Getting REALLY Excited (Video)

    Tim Duncan has a reputation for being a pretty low-key dude. Unless you call a foul on him. Then he gets these huge incredulous eyes, and gets this smile on his face that you just want to slap off. But other than that, he’s comically subdued. And Foot Locker, with the help of Duncan himself […]

    This Jeff Teague Dunk Defies the Laws of Gravity (Video)

    We saw two astounding things in Atlanta on Tuesday night. One was a Lakers win, which was just their second of the season. The other was a fantastic Jeff Teague dunk that defied the laws of gravity. We’re not going to talk about the Lakers win, of course, because talking about the Lakers just makes […]

  • Could Michael Jordan Still Dominate the NBA in 2014?

    Could Michael Jordan Still Dominate the NBA in 2014?

    Could Michael Jordan dominate the NBA in 2014? Well that depends. Are we asking if the Michael Jordan we all know right now—i.e. the 51-year-old owner of the Charlotte Hornets—could dominate the NBA? Because if so, then the only people who would answer “yes” are Bill and Bob Swerski. (Provided Ditka was Jordan’s coach, obviously.) […]

    You probably didn’t wake up today thinking, “Boy, it sure would be cool if somebody would create a whole series of NBA nickname illustrations, because I would love to look at those.” However, now that you know somebody actually has created a whole series of NBA nickname illustrations, your interest is piqued, isn’t it? That […]

    Jamal Crawford Lucky Bounce: Rim, Backboard, Rim, And In (Video)

    You don’t get far in the NBA without getting a few lucky bounces along the way. Judging by this Jamal Crawford lucky bounce from last night’s Bulls-Clippers game, it’s no wonder that the Clippers’ shooting guard is still playing starter minutes at the age of 34. The Bulls stampeeded over the struggling Clippers last night, […]

  • Shaq and Kobe Hug It Out Prior to Lakers-Warriors Game (Video)

    Shaq and Kobe Hug It Out Prior to Lakers-Warriors Game (Video)

    To understand why it was so amusing to see Shaq and Kobe hug it out prior to last night’s Lakers-Warriors game you have to go all the way back to 1996. That was the year the Lakers signed Shaquille O’Neal as a free agent and drafted an 18-year-old Kobe Bryant straight out of high school. […]

    NBA Unveils Awful New Christmas Day Jerseys with First Names (Pics)

    Yuck. Today the NBA unveiled their Christmas Day jerseys, and they reek. They reek of bad design, desperation (first names, really?), and they reek of a cash grab. These Christmas Day jerseys can just be tossed on the pile of alternate uniforms, shooting shirts, sleeved jerseys, throwbacks, and the standard issue home and away sets. While […]
