    LeBron James Leads Beach Yoga at Nike Basketball Academy (Pics)

    The 2015 Nike Basketball Academy took place in Santa Monica over the weekend, and there were plenty of the game’s biggest stars in attendance for the event, including LeBron James, Kobe Bryant, Anthony Davis, Kevin Durant, James Harden, and DeMarcus Cousins, as well as former stars like Gary Payton, Scottie Pippen, and Penny Hardaway.

  • Luke Ridnour is Being Traded to Every NBA Team This Summer

    Luke Ridnour is Being Traded to Every NBA Team This Summer

    Okay, so that title is a little misleading.  Luke Ridnour hasn’t been traded to every NBA team (at least not yet), but he has played for five teams in less than a week after being traded four times in the past week (including three times in two days last week). Ridnour began last week as […]

  • Pro Golfers Exchange Twitter Beef Over Drake Music

    Pro Golfers Exchange Twitter Beef Over Drake Music

    I’m not sure what’s crazier about this story: The fact that one professional golfer complained to PGA officials at the Travelers Championship about another pro golfer who was blasting Drake on the driving range, or the fact that a pro golfer was actually blasting Drake beats on the range? The two pro golfers in question are 29-year-old […]

    Former NFL corner Fred Smoot is launching a podcast. And as such, he went to Reddit to do one of those AMAs to promote it. During the course of the online interview, he was asked a couple questions about the presence of gay players in the NFL. Fred Smoot claims that while Michael Sam may […]

    A Swarm of Seagulls Descended Upon Oakland Coliseum (Video)

    The Oakland A’s trounced the Rockies last night 7-1, but the circumstances of their victory is far more interesting than just another lopsided regular season baseball game. A swarm (flock?) of seagulls invaded Oakland Coliseum and… …didn’t really do anything. Needless to say, it was pretty much the most exciting part of the game. They […]

  • Warriors Fan Creates Hilarious Cleveland Nike Ad Parody

    Warriors Fan Creates Hilarious Cleveland Nike Ad Parody

    Once Cleveland was bounced from an exhausting NBA Finals by the Warriors, Nike sidled up to their golden boy, LeBron James, and offered up this little poem/ad/whatever: New Nike LeBron ad pic.twitter.com/p5Of0avA1u — Darren Rovell (@darrenrovell) June 21, 2015 It was pretty weird, and seemed to slam Cleveland as much as praise them. However, a […]

  • You’ll Either Love or Hate This Duke Basketball Hype Video

    You’ll Either Love or Hate This Duke Basketball Hype Video

    Few teams are as polarizing as Duke is. Something about that school just rubs many sports fans the wrong way. However, their track record and fan base speak for themselves. So it should come as no surprise that the basketball team put together a hype video for the nearing 2015-16 season. It’s REALLY long at […]

    This Frisbee Golf Hole-In-One Is a Stoner’s Delight (Video)

    If you didn’t tune into the 2015 Maple Open Frisbee Golf Tournament in Massachusetts over the past few days, don’t worry. We got you covered. The tree-lined course was very picturesque, and also afforded one lucky golfer a 365-yard hole-in-one. The shot, while impressive, was also the result of a lot of luck. Sure, this […]

    Last week, an intermediary for an illegal offshore gambling operation pled guilty to laundering $2.75 million.

  • Fan Runs Onto Field, Throws Pitch at Angels-Mariners Game (Video)

    Fan Runs Onto Field, Throws Pitch at Angels-Mariners Game (Video)

    Okay, so maybe this fan didn’t actually throw a pitch, but he did mimic one after making his way onto the field during Sunday’s game between the Mariners and Angels at Angel Stadium. Have a look: A ball would have helped, but it was still a lot better than 50 Cent’s first pitch.  And the […]
