    Last Night’s Rockets Tweet Upset More than Just Dallas Fans

    While it hasn’t exactly been a bloodbath, emotions had been running high during the Dallas-Houston NBA playoff series. Dallas had some widely-publicized chemistry issues, and owner Mark Cuban had lobbed a few barbs at the Rockets before the season began. And then there’s the natural geographic rivalry between the two teams. But that doesn’t QUITE […]

    Another Logo Redesign? NBA Football Helmets? Sure, Why Not (Gallery)

    What’s a recently graduated, still unemployed graphic designer to do with all that extra free time? How about redesign every NBA logo and put them on football helmets? That’s what a guy named James Politi did. He teamed up with a guy by the name of Luke Daly, presumably his friend, and together they created […]

    DeAndre Jordan Basket Interference Costs Clippers Game 5 (Video)

    During Game 5 between the San Antonio Spurs and the Los Angeles Clippers at the Staples Center on Tuesday night, a basket interference call on the Clips’ DeAndre Jordan with just 4.3 seconds remaining and the Spurs leading by one proved to be the difference between a 3-2 series lead and a 3-2 series deficit […]

    Pair of ’84 Game-Worn Jordan Nikes Fetch $71,000

    The game-worn Michael Jordan Nikes that sold for $71,553 this weekend aren’t the most expensive pair of Jordan’s shoes that have ever sold.  Then again, they weren’t even his signature Jordan brand shoe. Given to a Lakers ball boy in late 1984, these Jordan shoes were actually Nike Air Ships that Jordan used as holdovers […]

    Wale Trolled Drake on Instagram after Wizards Sweep

    Wale reminded us that revenge is a dish best served cold after last night’s sweep of the Raptors by the Wizards. Earlier this year, Wale got called out on Instagram by Drake during a blowout at the hands of Drake’s Raptors.

    Rick Carlisle Responds to Game 3 Fine with a Taped Mouth (Video)

    Rick Carlisle got hit with a $25,000 fine after Friday’s loss to the Rockets when he criticized the officiating, so after game 4′s desperate victory, he took measures to ensure it wouldn’t happen again. Those measures included putting duct tape over his mouth, abduction-style, to prevent him from saying anything that might cost him some […]

    Is this Wizards Fan the Worst Dancer in the World? Yes. (Video)

    It’s one thing to dance like an idiot at a sporting event. That’s fine. Everyone does that when their team is winning. It’s another thing to do what this Wizards fan did and just break out every crappy dance more there is to put on display in earnest. If this guy was doing these things […]

    Paul Pierce Trolls Raptors and Drake Following Series Sweep (Pics)

    Prior to his team’s opening-round NBA playoff series against the Toronto Raptors, Washington Wizards veteran Paul Pierce claimed that the Raps didn’t have the “it” factor needed to instill fear into their post-season opponent. Pierce was obviously spot-on with his pre-series comments, as his Wizards swept the higher-ranked Raptors with ease. And following the Washington’s […]

    Kevin Love isn’t the only Cavaliers player who could miss some time when the Cavs take on the Chicago Bulls (probably) in the second-round of the NBA Playoffs. JR Smith may also be sidelined for a game or two after the league looks into the flagrant-2 foul he received for punching the Celtics’ Jae Crowder during the […]

    Someone Tell Draymond Green This Elbow Didn’t Hit Him (Video)

    I think there should be a hard and fast rule: If you take a dive to blow out of proportion some light contact, you’re a p*ssy. However, if you take a dive after not being touched at all, you’re a p*ssy that should get ejected. Last night, guess what kind of p*ssy Draymond Green was […]
