    Greg Oden Dunked a Basketball Without Breaking Himself in Half (Video)

    Normally when a seven-foot, 273-pound center dunks a basketball, the only thing you’re worried about shattering is the backboard. Not when that center is Greg Oden, though. When it’s Oden—a.k.a. the most breakable man alive—you’re worried he might just shatter every brittle bone in his body. You’re also worried he’ll destroy half his ligaments and […]

    Rejoice, Chicago: Derrick Rose Is Back (Videos)

    I’m not a Chicago Bulls fan, but to me it was starting to feel like Derrick Rose was never going to come back. In Chicago, his one-year absence must have felt like a decade.

    Danny Seigle Knocks Over Two Defenders With an Artful Crossover (Video)

    Over in the Philippines Basketball Association, Danny Seigle performed a maneuver that should please fans of cartoonish slapstick in basketball, as his “double-ankle-breaker” crossover sent not one, but two defenders tripping over each other’s feet.
