    Back in May, while filming scenes from The Amazing Spider-Man 2 in Manhattan, Andrew Garfield decided to kill some time on the set by shooting hoops with some kids on a basketball court in Chinatown—while still wearing his Spidey suit.

    The Butler Bulldog Is Training Hard for the Big East (Video)

    When I heard there was a video of Trip, the Butler Bulldog, training for the school’s transfer to the new Big East Conference, I kind of figured it would show him doing a bunch of Catholic stuff, like studying the catechism, hanging out with the Pope, and praying to the Blessed Virgin Mary. After all, […]

    You know what’s really great about LeBron James? He’s complex. You can’t just slap one single label on the guy. He’s not just the greatest basketball player on earth, or a big whiny baby, or a nice guy, or a douche bag, or a hero, or a villain, or a clutch shooter, or a choke […]

    Gatorade commercials will try to tell you that all you need to succeed in sports is a fiery spirit and a willingness to outwork your competitors (and lots of Gatorade).

    Every Single Shot LeBron James Made During Game 7 In One Animated GIF

    If the San Antonio Spurs had held on to win Game 6 and the NBA Championship, I suspect people would have forgotten about the amazing fourth quarter LeBron James had and focused instead on his late turnovers that could have cost the Miami Heat back-to-back championships. However, the Spurs didn’t win Game 6, LeBron made […]
