    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 […]

    We’ve tried to get you interested in the 2013 NBA Playoffs by telling you about the big storylines, and by giving you a little lesson in the history of NBA playoff upsets. Ultimately, however, if you don’t really have a team to root for, whether it’s because the team in your area sucks (sorry, Charlotte) or […]

    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.

    Chandler Parsons Thinks Blake Griffin May Be Wanted By The Police

    The Clippers’ Blake Griffin and the Rockets’ Chandler Parsons have a very interesting relationship. They’re not from the same home town, and they didn’t play college ball together, but the two appear to be friends. And publicly, at least, their friendship pretty much consists entirely of the two giving each other sh*t on Twitter. Back in […]

    Jarrett Jack’s Buzzer-Beater Attempt Was Just a Little Off (Video)

    Hitting a full-court buzzer-beater is no easy task.  I’m fully aware of that, as are most of you.  However, I’m also quite certain that it’s not as hard as Golden State Warriors guard Jarrett Jack made it look as time expired during the first quarter of last night’s game against the Oklahoma City Thunder. After […]

    This Day In Sports History (April 5th) — Kareem Abdul-Jabbar

    It was on this day in 1984 that Kareem Abdul-Jabbar broke Wilt Chamberlain’s record for total career regular season points.  Kareem would score his 31,420th point by hitting one of his trademark sky-hooks in a 129-115 victory over the Jazz during a game played in Las Vegas.
