    This Is the Most Incredible Half Court Shot of All Time (Video)

    I’ve watched a good amount of basketball in my day, and I’ve seen a lot of weird things. In fact, just this year I’ve seen a ball come to rest on the rim up against the backboard, a shot made off the top of the backboard, a shot made over the backboard, an epically terrible […]

    While most basketball fans have been fixated on the battle for top spot in the Eastern Conference this season between the Miami Heat and the New York Knicks, the Atlanta Hawks have been quietly lurking not far behind those two powerhouse squads.  And an impressive performance from Josh Smith during last night’s game against the […]

    Watch This Referee Give the Miami Heat a Helping Hand (Video)

    Maybe Mark Cuban is right after all. I always thought the Mavericks owner was just a hotheaded loudmouth spouting ridiculous conspiracy theories about how refs fix NBA games for certain teams. But I now have to admit that, after seeing the following play, at the very least I can kind of see where the guy […]

    The Atlanta Hawks weren’t the only ones having trouble taking flight during their Game 2 loss to the Boston Celtics at Phillips Arena on Tuesday.  This fat fan was also experiencing similar difficulties, as his halftime trampoline dunk turned into an epic failure when he came up several feet short of the rim and face-planted […]

    The Atlanta Hawks could have used all the points they could get last night during their 87-80 loss to the Boston Celtics, including these two points from Josh Smith, which appeared to be a certainty, until he rattled the ball off the rim while attempting a two-handed reverse slam.

    With fourth-place in the Eastern Conference in their sights, the Atlanta Hawks are well aware of the fact that they have to win games like last night’s home contest against the Cleveland Cavaliers if they want any chance of hosting a first-round playoff series.  And while the Cavs did give the Hawks everything they had, […]

    Stat Line Of The Night — 2/15/12 — Josh Smith

    Oftentimes, when one player on a basketball team is doing all of the scoring and rebounding, someone else is recording all of the assists.  And when one player is recording all of the assists and steals, someone else is usually doing the rebounding and blocking.  Well last night during a game against the Phoenix Suns, […]

    Finally! A Successful Jumbotron Marriage Proposal! (Video)

    The following information may come as a surprise to many male sports fans, but  I am here to tell you that jumbotron marriage proposals at sporting events are not what most women would define as being “romantic.”  If the SportsCenter’s commercial from last year didn’t already prove this, I’d like to think that the many […]

    Not many people were giving the Atlanta Hawks much of a chance heading into their second-round series against the Chicago Bulls, but last night’s performance had to change the minds of at least a few individuals.

    The Atlanta Hawks’ players weren’t the only ones putting up a strong fight at Philips Arena last night.  Hall of Famer and Hawks color analyst Dominique Wilkins was also doing some fighting of his own, although his opponent would be ex-referee Rashan S.

    When naming the top contenders in the NBA’s Eastern Conference, the Miami Heat, Boston Celtics, Chicago Bulls and Orlando Magic are almost certain to get some love.  Thanks to the Carmelo Anthony trade, the New York Knicks may have also entered that group.  As for the Atlanta Hawks, they often find themselves on the outside […]

    Looking to keep pace with the Orlando Magic for fourth spot in the Eastern Conference standings, and a chance at home-court advantage in the first round of the playoffs, the Atlanta Hawks knew that a game against the lowly Detroit Pistons was one they simply had to win.  They did just that, thanks in large […]

    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.
