    We Now Know the Identify of the Lady Who Gave Joakim Noah the Finger in Miami

    The Chicago Bulls pulled off a surprising victory against the Miami Heat in Game 1 of their Eastern Conference semifinal playoff series. But Game 2? Yeah, that was rough. LeBron James and company absolutely trounced their opponents, 115-78, and as if that wasn’t enough, Bulls center Joakim Noah was subjected to a very noteworthy obscene […]

    This Day In Sports History (May 7th) — Denver Nuggets

    It was on this day in 1994 that the No. 8 seeded Denver Nuggets upset the top ranked Seattle SuperSonics in the first round of the NBA playoffs.  It was the first time that a No. 1 seed fell to a No. 8 seed since the first round of the NBA playoffs went to a […]

    The poor Kobe-less Lakers were completely outclassed by the San Antonio Spurs during Round 1 of the 2013 NBA Playoffs. Tony Parker and company swept L.A. right out of the playoffs in four straight games, outscoring them by a whopping 75 points. Now coach Mike D’Antoni will have the whole offseason to ponder what life […]

    The NHL has been around since 1917, the NFL has been around since 1920, the NBA has been around since 1946, and the MLB has been around since 1869. Gay men have been around forever.

    What is an NBA fan to do when his team of high-priced underachieving superstar players is on the verge of getting swept right out of the first round of the playoffs?

    Watch Taj Gibson Posterize Kris Humphries (Video)

    Poor Kris Humphries has been posterized a lot in recent years. J.J. Hickson got him pretty good a few years back. So did Blake Griffin and Kobe Bryant. You might even say Humprhies is the poster boy for getting posterized. And you can bet that Kanye West has a whole room in his house displaying […]

    This Fan of Chris “Birdman” Andersen Was Pretty Excited Last Night (Video)

    When the Miami Heat picked up Chris “Birdman” Andersen midway through the 2012-13 NBA season, it reminded me a lot of the Bulls picking up Dennis Rodman in 1995. Here you had a team that already had championship-winning superstars, adding a flamboyant defensive specialist. Well, that signing is looking pretty good these days. The Heat […]

    Referee Takes a Spill During Clippers-Grizzlies Game 2 (Video)

    NBA referees may not be quite as hilariously awful as the replacement referees who worked the first few weeks of the 2012 NFL season. However, over the course of an entire five-month basketball season they’ve given us just as many awkward moments. We’ve seen a guy accidentally keep a ball inbounds and give the Heat […]

    The 2013 NBA Playoffs are officially underway, and so far the best teams are dominating the way they are supposed to. However, that doesn’t mean we won’t see any upsets this year. You never know when an underdog will pull it all together, or when a powerhouse will stumble. Maybe Kevin Durant will sprain an […]
