    Pacers’ Roy Hibbert Was Part Of A “Gangnam Style” Flash Mob (Video)

    The Indiana Pacers’ Roy Hibbert may have made only his first All-Star appearance last season, which was his fourth in the NBA. However, he’d already become a fan-favorite in Indianapolis thanks in large part to his special promotion called “Roy Hibbert’s Area 55.” You see, for the last three years, Hibbert has personally purchased 55 […]

    Jeremy Evans Had The Best 10-Second Sequence Of The NBA Pre-Season (Video)

    During the second quarter of yesterday’s preseason game between the Utah Jazz and the Los Angeles Clippers, Jeremy Evans provided spectators with what will undoubtedly go down as the greatest 10-second sequence of the 2012 NBA preseason.  In fact, this brilliant energetic burst from the high-flying Jazz forward may in fact go down as the […]

    Watch 5’5″ Porter Maberry Perform An Incredible Eastbay Dunk (Video)

    Just because you’re short, that doesn’t mean you can’t be a good basketball player. We learned that a few weeks ago from a guy named Jamani Swanson. However, if you’re particularly short, that does usually preclude the possibility of performing highlight reel dunks. Of course, there are exceptions to this. Spud Webb, for example, was […]

    Watch Dwyane Wade Miss A Wide Open Dunk (Video)

    How often does a 1-on-0 break end without a basket in the NBA? Like, 1 in 10? Or maybe 1 in 100? It can’t be often, that’s for sure. Unfortunately, when it is your first game back after undergoing knee surgery, the chances are apparently much higher. Just ask the Miami Heat’s Dwyane Wade. After […]

    The 2012 NBA pre-season hasn’t even begun yet, and Blake Griffin is already providing us with highlight reel clips.  But his latest highlight doesn’t feature another one of his patented high-flying slam dunks.  Instead, it displays another much-less talked about facet of Griffin’s game: his shooting range. The reason why not many people talk about […]

    It was on this day in 1991 that U.S.A. Basketball announced the “Dream Team” for the 1992 Summer Olympics in Barcelona, Spain.  Ten of the best players in the NBA were named to the team, with two more added in May of 1992. Charles Barkley, Larry Bird, Patrick Ewing, Magic Johnson, Michael Jordan, Karl Malone, […]

    The 2012 Summer Olympics may be over, but there’s still some big-time international basketball going on—specifically, qualification for the 2013 FIBA European Basketball Championships. And over the weekend, a Group A qualifier between Balkan neighbors Serbia and Montenegro had a thrilling finish. The favored Serbs went up 67-54 with just 4:55 left on the clock, […]

    Stat Line Of The Night — 8/12/12 — Kevin Durant

    The USA men’s basketball team entered the final day of the 2012 Olympic Games with a perfect 7-0 record, but despite their dominating performance up to that point, a loss to Spain in Sunday’s final would still make their visit to London an epic failure.  With all of that pressure staring them in the face, […]
