    Manu Ginobili Misses A Wide Open Dunk (Video)

    With the San Antonio Spurs situated comfortably atop the Western Conference late in the season, some of their older players were afforded the opportunity to get some extra rest prior to the start of the playoffs.  And while that strategy by Gregg Popovich appeared to work wonders for the aging legs of Tim Duncan (17 […]

    15 Highest NBA Salaries For The 2011-12 Season

    Now that we’re actually going to have a 2011-12 NBA season, I thought it would be fun to whip up a list of the top player salaries for this year. Why is a list of the NBA’s top salaries so amusing? It has to do with the league’s insanely complicated “soft” salary cap. This system, […]

    9 Reasons Norv Turner Should Be Fired

    With the Chargers sitting at 4-5 right now, they are far from the dominant force in the AFC West that everyone expected them to be. And everyone is predictably placing the blame on head coach Norv Turner. He’s seemed to trend downward over his career in SD, and it’s time to pull the cord and […]

    15 Highest Pro Athlete Salaries of 2011

    The annual salaries commanded by pro athletes seem to be growing exponentially, don’t they? It just seems like every year, in every sport, somebody is breaking a record for most money paid to a grown man for playing a game. Some of us don’t really have a problem with this, and instead fantasize about what […]

  • This Day In Sports History (June 23rd) – San Antonio Spurs

    This Day In Sports History (June 23rd) – San Antonio Spurs

    It was on this day in 2005 that the San Antonio Spurs and Detroit Pistons played Game 7 of the NBA Finals.  The Spurs won the game 81-74 to win the franchise’s third championship. The Spurs easily handled their first three opponents of the playoffs, beating the Denver Nuggets in five games, the Seattle Supersonics […]

  • 11 Athletes We’d Like to Punch in the Face

    11 Athletes We’d Like to Punch in the Face

    This list could be a thousand entries long. Of course, everyone has their own athletes they want to punch. I’m sure someone out there hates Dirk Nowitzki with a passion and wants nothing more to see him hurt, but that’s not what this list is about. Some athletes, seemingly universally, just rub everyone the wrong […]

  • 9 Biggest Crybabies in Sports

    9 Biggest Crybabies in Sports

    Allow me to clarify this title. It’s not about actually who actually cry (as we covered last week), but rather about men who simply won’t stop whining. People that won’t stop complaining about calls, bitch to the media about clubhouse affairs, etc. They are among the most destructive and obnoxious types of personalities, so we’ve […]

  • The Stat Line Of The Night – 2/1/11 – LaMarcus Aldridge

    The Stat Line Of The Night – 2/1/11 – LaMarcus Aldridge

    Not many teams have had success against the San Antonio Spurs this season, and the odds appeared to be stacked against the Portland Trail Blazers last night.  Playing without two key players in Brandon Roy and Greg Oden for most of the year, the Blazers have had a much more difficult time finding wins compared […]

  • Picture Of The Day: Size Mismatch?

    Picture Of The Day: Size Mismatch?

    If you thought this image was photoshopped, think again. To the left we have the 5’5″, 133-pound, former Denver Nugget and current Milwaukee Buck, Earl Boykins.  And to the right, we have the 6’11″, 260-pound San Antonio Spurs’ center, Tim Duncan.  With 18 inches and 127 pounds separating these two foes, referring to this as […]

    10 Athletes Who Might Not Be Total Douchebags

    How hard is it to find likable athletes? Harder than you would think. I’m sure there are many out there, but the best of the best usually end up making headlines off the field for all the wrong reason. To the players’ credit, the media and readers would seemingly rather read about a sex scandal […]

    9 Douchebags Wearing Starter Jackets

    Few things are more comical than outdated fashions. And while someone’s high school yearbook photo from 1976 might have them in an afro and a corduroy jacket, it’s far funnier to see people in the ridiculous fashions of the recent past. One prime example of this is the Starter jacket, which were generally huge, bright […]

  • 9 Calls Worse Than Yesterday’s Bears/Lions Decision

    9 Calls Worse Than Yesterday’s Bears/Lions Decision

    Whenever we get too comfortable with the job our referees are doing, there’s always a play like the one in yesterday’s in Bears/Lions game to shake things up and merit new discussions on how much our refs suck. While the call seemed to be inline with the rule, the fact remains that any rule declaring […]

  • The Stat Line of the Night – 5/26/10 – Dwight Howard

    The Stat Line of the Night – 5/26/10 – Dwight Howard

    Superman isn’t quite ready to spend his summer as Clark Kent. Down 3 games to none in their series against the Boston Celtics, the Orlando Magic were left for dead by most fans and observers. Dwight Howard has a little message for them: not so quick. Howard led the Magic to a 113-92 win in […]

  • The Stat Line of the Night – 4/29/10 – Manu Ginobili

    The Stat Line of the Night – 4/29/10 – Manu Ginobili

    This one was almost over before it started. I’m talking about game 6 between the Spurs and Mavericks, although if I was talking about the whole series that would work too. The Spurs opened up a huge 22-8 lead at the end of the first quarter and ended up with a 97-87 victory. They took […]

  • The Stat Line of the Night – 4/28/10 – Deron Williams

    The Stat Line of the Night – 4/28/10 – Deron Williams

    The Utah Jazz lost to the Denver Nuggets on Wednesday night, but it sure wasn’t Deron Williams’ fault. The game was in Denver and Carmelo Anthony led the Nuggets to a 116-102 win. Utah still leads the series 3-2. Williams is still one of the most underrated players in the NBA. Williams is sort of […]
