    Stat Line of the Night — 12/13/2012 — Damian Lillard

    Beating the San Antonio Spurs is no easy task, but the Portland Trail Blazers made it look pretty simple last night, thanks in large part to play of their rookie sensation, Damian Lillard. The 2012 sixth-overall draft pick entered Thursday’s contest leading all NBA rookies in points per game, and he increased that gap by […]

    Basketball is getting more popular in Europe every year. More and more players are getting drafted by NBA teams, and the professional Euroleague is getting better all the time. In fact, some teams are even trying to mimic the true American basketball experience by introducing cheerleaders. Unfortunately, the cheerleaders haven’t come nearly as far as […]

    Things have not been going well for the Toronto Raptors.  They are 4-18 to start the season, they are an abysmal 1-14 on the road , and they are currently in the midst of a five-game losing streak.  Sure, their expectations weren’t exactly sky-high heading into the season, but with the off-season acquisitions of Kyle Lowry and […]

    This Is Why High Schools Shouldn’t Hold Slam Dunk Contests (Video)

    Slam dunk contests are pretty cool, right? Guys doing spins, windmills, through-the-legs, double-pumps, tomahawks, and all that good stuff—I mean, what’s not to like? But here’s the thing: yes, slam dunk contests are awesome, but when they do it on TV they make it look a lot easier than it really is. Dunking itself is […]

    Stat Line of the Night — 12/04/2012 — Zach Randolph

    The Memphis Grizzlies entered last night having won eight of their first nine games at home this season, and they continued their winning ways at the FedEx Forum on Tuesday night by handing the Phoenix Suns their fourth loss in a row. Leading the way for the Grizzlies was Zach Randolph, who was an absolute […]

    Every generation, it seems, a basketball players comes along who possesses legendary leaping abilities which he uses to give the world epic dunks. In the late 90s and early 2000s, that player was undoubtedly Vince Carter. He gave us what was possibly the greatest in-game dunk of all time at the 2000 Summer Olympics. Today, […]

    Rockets’ Omer Asik Scored On His Own Basket Last Night (Video)

    While the boxscore from last night’s game between the Houston Rockets and the Toronto Raptors tells us that Omer Asik scored 13 points during his team’s 117-101 victory, the truth is he actually recorded 15 points during the contest.  Although, I’m sure Asik doesn’t mind having those additional two points omitted from his stat line, […]

    Recurring knee problems have kept the Philadelphia 76ers’ Andrew Bynum on the sidelines throughout the first few weeks of the NBA season.  And while it may be difficult for the All-Star center to pick up an endorsement deal with a shoe company while he is out of action, it appears as though he could be translating his […]

    Belgium Provides Us With The Worst Basketball Highlight Ever (Video)

    Here is a video from a Belgian basketball game. The dude featured in the video is certainly no LeBron James.  Heck, his shooting accuracy may be even worse than that of Andris Biedrins.  But despite all of this, I’m still having trouble deciding what aspect of the following clip is more embarrassing:  The four botched open […]

    The Miami Heat weren’t just beaten by the Memphis Grizzlies on Sunday.  They were embarrassed by them, as Wayne Ellington–who hit seven three-pointers–and the Grizzlies cruised to the easy 104-86 victory over the defending NBA Champions. And speaking of embarrassed, that is exactly what Rudy Gay did to LeBron James, as he used a behind-the-back […]
