    ‘Iverson’: Trailer for Allen Iverson Documentary Unveiled (Video)

    While it’s pretty trite to label an athlete or any popular figure as “misunderstood,” that characterization fits Allen Iverson to a tee. The scrappy basketball icon was considered a thug, the ultimate competitor, fiercely loyal, dangerous, clutch, and reckless by many who just didn’t understand him. In an effort to shed some light on both Iverson’s […]

    Drake Was Keeping His Pants Lint-Free at the Raptors Game Last Night (GIF)

    It was hardly a surprise to see Drake sitting courtside at the Raptors-Nets playoff game last night, and not just because the guy is a Toronto native or a well-known sports fan. The hip-hop superstar is actually employed by the Raptors as their “Global Brand Ambassador,” which basically just means they want him to make the team […]

    Artist Micah Coles Redesigns NBA Team Logos With Pokemon (Pics)

    The NBA is full of colorful team names and mascots, but most of them are refugees from an earlier, pre-Pokemon era. So artist Micah Coles took it upon himself to reimagine every NBA team as being represented by a Pokemon instead. I never got into Pokemon, so I won’t comment on the appropriateness or inappropriateness […]

    Blake Griffin Reacts to Foul, Dumps Water on Warriors Fan (GIF)

    Ah, the old “throw your hands up in exasperation while holding a cup of water and accidentally soaking another person” gag. It’s a classic bit of slapstick dating back to the days of silent movies (and probably earlier than that), but Blake Griffin brought it back during Saturday night’s game between the Clippers and the […]

    It’s been five long years since the Toronto Raptors last took part in the NBA Playoffs, but they made it back to the post-season in style this year, winning the Atlantic Division and finishing in third place in the Eastern Conference. In doing so, they were also able to record a franchise-record 48 victories and […]

    Watch NBA Players Fight in EA Sports’ NHL 14 (Video)

    Unfortunately, you can’t fight an opposing player in the NBA 2K14 video game.  Heck, you can’t even swear without earning a technical foul. Because of that, we’ll never know what a fight between the video game version of Russell Westbrook and Patrick Beverley or Kevin Garnett and Carmelo Anthony would look like…Or will we? As […]

    These Joakim Noah Animations Are All Kinds of Amazing (GIFs)

    Normally when I do a post like this, I try to introduce the video or GIF by saying something about the subject matter. The idea is to provide some sort of context so the video or GIF seems relevant to current events. In this case, however, there really is nothing to say to set up […]

    Phoenix Suns Help Soldier Surprise His Son (Video)

    You know who loves a good surprise military homecoming? Everybody. That’s why professional sports teams help arrange them so often. If a team’s only goal was to do something nice for a military family that makes a sacrifice for their country, they would just arrange the reunions at home, or maybe at the airport. But […]
