    After Being Drafted, Sam Dekker Still Has Lawn Duties (Pic)

    Going from being a broke college athlete to being a millionaire professional basketball player will change a lot of people, but not Sam Dekker.  The former Wisconsin forward was selected by the Houston Rockets with the 18th overall pick in Thursday’s NBA Draft, but that doesn’t mean he was excused from lawn-mowing duties this weekend: From NBA […]

    Jahlil Okafor Looks Thrilled To Be In Philly…No, Not Really (GIF)

    Jahlil Okafor was chosen by the Philadelphia 76ers with the third-overall pick in Thursday’s NBA Draft, after being passed on by the Minnesota Timberwolves and the Los Angeles Lakers. How does the former Duke center feel about being in Philly?  If this GIF from Saturday’s introductory press conference is any indication, I’d say he’s not […]

    Sad NBA Draft Photo Has Happy Ending

    As the 2015 NBA Draft neared its conclusion, UNLV sophomore Christian Wood came to the realization that he was not going to be among the 60 players selected, resulting in this incredibly sad NBA Draft photo that was captured by CBS Sports’ Gary Parrish: This is about the saddest picture from an NBA Draft you’ll […]

    Michael Rapaport Didn’t Like the Knicks’ Draft Choice, Either (Video)

    Word came from the draft last night that Knicks fans booed their team’s #4 selection, Kristaps Porzingis. That’s understandable. Foreign big men have always been a risky proposition in the early rounds, and it’s not like Knicks fans have a lot of faith in their front office these days. Add actor Michael Rapaport to the roster […]

    Check Out the Hornets’ New Alternate Buzz City Pride Uniforms (Gallery)

    How many uniforms does one NBA team need? That’s a rhetorical question. Everybody knows the correct answer is four: one home, one away, one away alternate, and one “Pride” uniform. Any team that has fewer than that obviously does not respect its fans (or want their money). The Charlotte Hornets? They respect their fans (and want […]

  • LeBron to Opt Out of His Cavs Deal to See What They Do Next

    LeBron to Opt Out of His Cavs Deal to See What They Do Next

    That has to be a scary headline in the wake of the news that Kevin Love is opting out of his deal as well. I have every expectation that LeBron returns to Cleveland, but this move in particular puts a lot of pressure on Cleveland’s front office to establish not just a good team, but […]

  • Frank Kaminsky Rocked a ‘Frank the Tank’ Jacket at the Draft

    Frank Kaminsky Rocked a ‘Frank the Tank’ Jacket at the Draft

    Wisconsin star Frank Kaminsky was picked up at #9 by the Charlotte Hornets last night in the NBA draft. And because “Kaminsky” isn’t exactly the most fan-friendly name in the league, he reminded everyone of his nickname by rocking a “Frank the Tank” suit jacket with two tanks stitched on the inside. Not one. Two. Here’s […]

  • Jalen Rose NBA Draft Player Comparisons: Not So Great (Tweets)

    Jalen Rose NBA Draft Player Comparisons: Not So Great (Tweets)

    Jalen Rose gets paid actual money to watch the NBA Draft and tell the viewers at home a little bit about the players as they get picked. To do this, Jalen Rose compares the players getting picked to other players in the league with whom viewers are already somewhat familiar, which in theory is a […]

    Kelly Oubre Jr., a freshman forward with the Kansas Jayhawks last season, was selected by the Atlanta Hawks with the 15th overall pick in the 2015 NBA Draft on Thursday, and he was later traded to the Washington Wizards. Oubre went 15th overall in the draft because scouts view him as an athletic, promising wing […]

  • Watch Steph Curry’s Wife Drill a 3 on Her First Attempt (Video)

    Watch Steph Curry’s Wife Drill a 3 on Her First Attempt (Video)

    After seeing Steph Curry‘s wife, Ayesha, drill this 3-pointer on her first try, you’d think I would make a crack here about long-range accuracy being sexually transmitted, but I’m above that. That would be crass and terrible. But she IS pregnant. ANYWAY, she was on the set of NBA2k16′s mo-cap effort when she stepped up and […]
