    Cody Zeller Starts Off 2014 With Terrible Missed Dunk (GIF)

    Hopefully your 2014 hasn’t had any major missteps yet, especially since we’re only on the second day and all. But unfortunately, there’s one member of the Charlotte Bobcats who can’t make any such claim.  That member is Cody Zeller, who had an already-bad New Year’s Eve turn worse when he missed an open slam dunk […]

  • Memphis Grizzlies Draft 8-Year-Old for Make-A-Wish Foundation

    Memphis Grizzlies Draft 8-Year-Old for Make-A-Wish Foundation

    In previous eras, getting drafted was no one’s idea of a wish come true. But times have changed, and now drafts are pretty much the exclusive domain of sports teams like the Memphis Grizzlies, who (along with the Make-A-Wish Foundation) used their drafting powers for an unusually good cause, drafting 8-year-old Charvis Brewer to the […]

    Heat’s Norris Cole Falls and Smashes His Face on the Court (Video)

      One tough thing about basketball is that there just isn’t any give in that hardwood floor. Norris Cole of the Miami Heat learned this firsthand (or should I say “firstface”?) during last night’s game between the Heat and the Denver Nuggets in Denver. Cole was already feeling some pressure during the game as he […]

    LeBron James Posterizes the Hawks’ Paul Millsap (Video)

      Last night, the Miami Heat faced off against the Atlanta Hawks, and more specifically, Paul Millsap‘s face bounced off of LeBron James during a brutal slam dunk that knocked Millsap to the ground and became noteworthy enough to score more than 21,000 hits on YouTube (as of early Tuesday morning), and counting. This act […]

    NBA Referee Gets Taken Out by a Flagrant Flop (Video)

    Let me just start by saying they have some classy fans in Oklahoma City. Last night, one of the referees for the game between the Thunder and Bulls got taken out and hit the floor pretty hard. However, instead of cheering—which you would expect in places like Chicago or Philadelphia—the Thunder fans reacted in horror, […]

    Last night, San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich kept his three best players out of the lineup against the Golden State Warriors in a nationally televised game that could be a preview of a future playoff matchup. Why? Well, he was probably just trying to piss off David Stern, who fined him $250,000 last year […]

    As a head coach of an NBA basketball team, you’re always expected to be focused on the game.  But sometimes all of that focus may cause you to take your eyes off the ball and place them on another area of the court that requires your attention.  That must have been the case last night […]

    Michael Jordan’s “Flu Game” Shoes Sell For Record Price

    On June 11, 1997, Michael Jordan put up 38 points, seven rebounds, five assists, three steals, and one block while battling a serious stomach virus to help the Chicago Bulls defeat the Utah Jazz in Game 5 of the NBA Finals.  Following that epic game, which has become known as “the Flu Game,” Jordan gave […]

    Ricky Rubio Nutmegs Nicolas Batum (Video + GIF)

    When Ricky Rubio is on the floor, you literally have to expect the ball to go anywhere at any time. The guy’s vision and his passing ability are that good. Unfortunately for Portland’s Nicolas Batum, last night he was not expecting this. The red hot Blazers, winners of five straight, were in Minnesota to take […]
