  • Stat Line of the Night — 1/8/2014 — Nicolas Batum

    Stat Line of the Night — 1/8/2014 — Nicolas Batum

    This “Stat Line of the Night” could have easily went to LaMarcus Aldridge, who scored 36 points and added nine rebounds and three blocks during a 110-94 victory over the Orlando Magic on Wednesday.  But we’re not. Instead, were giving the honors to Aldridge’s less-recognized teammate, Nicolas Batum, who quietly balled his way to a […]

    Dwyane Wade Takes 7 Steps, Doesn’t Get Called For Traveling (GIF)

    During a game against the Portland Trail Blazers on December 28, the Miami Heat’s Dwyane Wade packed his bags, grabbed his passport, and traveled his way around the court.  And much to the chagrin of one Redditor, who goes by the name of catanimal, D-Wade’s trip around the frontcourt went unnoticed by the officials. According […]

    LeBron James Kisses a Female Fan Sitting Courtside (Video)

    The above title may have LeBron James‘ wife, Savannah Brinson, questioning her husband’s fidelity, but one look at the video below, which shows King James kissing an elderly woman on the cheek during last night’s home contest against the New Orleans Pelicans, should quickly erase any questions she has regarding his faithfulness to her.  After […]

    This Day In Sports History (January 8th) — NCAA Tourney

    It was on this day in 1984 when the NCAA announced that they would be adding an additional nine teams to the March Madness basketball tournament. The previous team total for the tournament had been 53 teams, meaning five play-in games had to be played before the start of the tournament.  The increase to 64 […]

    Stat Line of the Night — 1/7/2014 — Gordon Hayward

    How do you beat the Oklahoma City Thunder when Kevin Durant puts up a game-high 48 points?  Simple.  Just score 37 points of your own and add another 11 rebounds, seven assists, two steals, and one block for good measure. That’s exactly what Utah Jazz shooting guard Gordon Hayward did during last night’s game against […]

    It was on this day in 1972 that the Los Angeles Lakers defeated the Atlanta Hawks 134-90 for their 33rd straight win.  Their winning streak began over two months earlier with a win over the Baltimore Bullets. The 1971-72 Los Angeles Lakers are considered one of the greatest teams in NBA history, led by Wilt […]

    Watch J.R. Smith Untie Shawn Marion’s Shoelace (Video)

    Apparently New York Knicks sh*tdistruber J.R. Smith is tired of Andrea Bargnani getting all the attention these days with his terrible basketball playing. So last night against the Maverick in Dallas, he upped his game a bit. Of course, by “upped his game a bit,” I do not actually mean J.R. Smith tried harder to […]

    Let’s All Watch Andrea Bargnani Be Terrible…Again (GIF)

    A few weeks ago I wrote a few posts about the New York Knicks and how they are really, really bad. The second of those posts focused on Andrea Bargnani, and at the end I suggested we should start an ongoing series of posts called “Why the Knicks Suck.” Well, guess who stars in this […]

    Stat Line of the Night — 12/23/2013 — Tyreke Evans

    Tyreke Evans spent the first three years of his NBA career in Sacramento, but after departing for New Orleans during the off-season, he made his return to the place he used to call home when the Kings hosted the Pelicans at Sleep Train Arena last night. And what a return it was for Evans. Coming […]

  • NBA Referee Gets Taken Out by a Flagrant Flop (Video)

    NBA Referee Gets Taken Out by a Flagrant Flop (Video)

    Let me just start by saying they have some classy fans in Oklahoma City. Last night, one of the referees for the game between the Thunder and Bulls got taken out and hit the floor pretty hard. However, instead of cheering—which you would expect in places like Chicago or Philadelphia—the Thunder fans reacted in horror, […]

    Watch Tiago Splitter Throw Up an Air Ball from Three Feet Away (GIF)

    Last night, San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich kept his three best players out of the lineup against the Golden State Warriors in a nationally televised game that could be a preview of a future playoff matchup. Why? Well, he was probably just trying to piss off David Stern, who fined him $250,000 last year […]
