    This Is Why High Schools Shouldn’t Hold Slam Dunk Contests (Video)

    Slam dunk contests are pretty cool, right? Guys doing spins, windmills, through-the-legs, double-pumps, tomahawks, and all that good stuff—I mean, what’s not to like? But here’s the thing: yes, slam dunk contests are awesome, but when they do it on TV they make it look a lot easier than it really is. Dunking itself is […]

    Every generation, it seems, a basketball players comes along who possesses legendary leaping abilities which he uses to give the world epic dunks. In the late 90s and early 2000s, that player was undoubtedly Vince Carter. He gave us what was possibly the greatest in-game dunk of all time at the 2000 Summer Olympics. Today, […]

    While it’s pretty funny when somebody drops an audible f-bomb on television, I actually prefer it when there’s no audio. Why? Because it’s more fun reading lips. For starters, you can watch the incident at work without getting into trouble. Also, and more importantly, you get to fill in any gaps with your own interpretation. Such […]

    Check Out NBA Ref Joey Crawford’s Weird Little Foul Dance (Video)

    We all knew baseball umpires like to jazz up their punch-out calls. It’s a long-standing tradition. But did you know that some NBA refs are trying to add some pizzazz to their officiating as well? It’s true. Look no further than last night’s Pacers-Lakers game in Los Angeles. It was a tight, low-scoring affair that […]

    Rockets’ Omer Asik Scored On His Own Basket Last Night (Video)

    While the boxscore from last night’s game between the Houston Rockets and the Toronto Raptors tells us that Omer Asik scored 13 points during his team’s 117-101 victory, the truth is he actually recorded 15 points during the contest.  Although, I’m sure Asik doesn’t mind having those additional two points omitted from his stat line, […]

    Is it just me, or are there more flagrant fouls in the NBA than there used to be—particularly ones involving elbows? Back in April, of course, there was the Metta World Peace-to-James Harden “elbow heard ’round the world” (or at least in North America and Taiwan). Then, just a few weeks ago, Thomas Robinson of […]

    The 2012-13 NBA season is two and a half weeks old now, but there is still one sad, pathetic team who has yet to win their first game. And, unbelievably, it’s not the Bobcats. They are actually 4-3. No, it’s the Washington Wizards. They are 0-7. And interestingly enough, the Wizards were in Charlotte on […]
