    The NBA’s Spite Slam Dunk Contest is set to take flight tonight in Los Angeles, and the energy building around this year’s event couldn’t be much more electric.  Not since Vince Carter was chosen to participate in 2000 has there been so much hype surrounding the event, and it is all because of one man… […]

    Nuggets To Trade Carmelo Anthony To The Nets, Await His Approval

    First it was the Knicks.  Then the Nets.  Then the Lakers. Then the Bulls. Then the Rockets.  Then the Nuggets.  Then the Knicks again.  And finally, it appears as though the Carmelo Anthony trade-destination wheel is prepared to finally stop on the New Jersey Nets. Melo will enter this weekend’s All-Star festivities as a member […]

    J.J. Redick Gets His Ankles Broken…Again! (Video)

    The Orlando Magic’s J.J. Redick showed an incredible amount of courage last night when he continued to play despite suffering his second broken ankle this month.  Of course, when we say “broken ankle” we are talking about basketball’s version of the injury, which inflicts more pain on one’s self-esteem than on their actual ankle. The […]

    Blake Griffin Hits His Head On The Backboard (Video)

    At times, Blake Griffin’s worst enemy can be his very own leaping ability…and those incredibly hard backboards. It has become quite obvious that the only thing capable of stopping the Los Angeles Clippers’ superstar rookie once he takes flight is the possibility of him hitting his head on the backboard.  That was the case last […]

    LeBron James Assisted On His Own Basket Last Night (Video)

    A few days ago the University of Bridgeport men’s basketball team showed us all how a Division II school gets on SportsCenter when two of their players teamed up for an incredible off-the-backboard alley-oop dunk.  Last night, LeBron James showed us all that he doesn’t need anyone’s help to create his own highlight reel slam […]

    Ellen Gives Suns’ Self-Dunking Stuntman A Shot At Redemption (Video)

    Just over two weeks ago Phoenix Suns’ stunt dunker Nick Corrales made highlight reel packages everywhere after he dunked both the ball and himself through the hoop during a break in the action.  As it turns out, Corrales didn’t actually intend to send his body through the rim, but instead, he was simply doing some […]

    Raptors Fans Watch Team Lose 111-100, Go Wild For Free Pizza (Video)

    Perhaps one of the greatest promotions in the entire NBA comes from the Air Canada Center in Toronto, where Raptors fans are awarded one free pizza from Pizza Pizza if their team can reach 100 points.  Once the Raptors reach the century mark in any home game, those in attendance can use their ticket stub […]

    Big Baby Comes Up A Little Short (Video)

    As big as Glen “Big Baby” Davis may be, he is not quite big enough to make any dunk attempt a guaranteed success.  That was evident on Sunday afternoon when the Celtics’ forward/center found himself all alone on a break following a turnover against the Miami Heat, only to have his dunk attempt rejected by […]

    Look At Me! I’m J.R. Smith! (GIF)

    Despite his ability to score points, drain three-pointers and contribute in many other ways on the basketball court, the Denver Nuggets’ J.R. Smith continues to be left off his team’s starting rotation.  That has resulted in a lack of playing time for the sixth year guard (24 minutes per game), leaving him looking for some […]

    The New York Knicks’ Landry Fields has proven himself to be among the top rookies the NBA has to offer (he was picked to represent the Rookie Team at the T-Mobile Rookie Challenge on All-Star Weekend), and while his play has gained the attention of league officials, plenty of Knicks fans remain clueless when it […]

    LA Lakers Greeted By Taunts From Emerson College Student (Video)

    The Los Angeles Lakers are in Boston this evening to take on the Celtics in a much anticipated rematch of last season’s NBA Championship series. And while Kobe Bryant and company probably weren’t expecting to be on the receiving end of a warm welcome from the Beantown faithful, they may have been slightly surprised by […]

    25 Years Later, Spud Webb Can Still Dunk (Video)

    In 1986, Spud Webb shocked the world when he entered the NBA Slam Dunk Competition.  Even his own teammate, Dominique Wilkins, had no clue the 5’7 Atlanta Hawks guard could dunk, but it wouldn’t take him long to learn that fact as Webb would go on to win the competition, thanks to several awe-inspiring slams. […]

    Vote Matt Bonner For The Three-Point Competition (Video)

    The contestants for the Foot Locker Three-Point Contest during the NBA’s All-Star Weekend have yet to be determined.  That means there is still time for the guys at The Basketball Jones to convince commissioner David Stern that the San Antonio Spurs’ Matt Bonner should be there. Bonner is currently hitting 50.4 percent of his three-point […]

    Sex Or Basketball: What Would You Choose? (SFW Pic)

    Is this the most dedicated, hard-working basketball player ever?  Or just some guy with his priorities in the wrong order? Perhaps some more info and better pictures of these two facebookers would help us answer those questions.  Is this kid a future NBAer?  Is he playing recreational ball at the local gym?  Does his team […]

    Justin Bieber Gets No Love From The Knicks Fans (Video)

    Those New York Knicks fans sure are one tough crowd.  In addition to booing every visiting team and/or player that steps onto the court at Madison Square Gardens, they also will not hesitate to shower teenage pop-stars with catcalls.  Justin Bieber was the latest victim of their disapproval, despite being only 16-years-old and having previously […]
