    High School Girls Basketball Player Drains Full-Court Bounce-Shot Buzzer-Beater (Video)

    Everybody loves a good buzzer-beater. And over the years, we’ve seen just about every kind of buzzer-beater imaginable—the buzzer-beating layup, the buzzer-beating fade-away, the buzzer-beating backwards over-the-head two-hander, and of course the buzzer-beating half-court shot. Well, today we have a new kind of buzzer-beater that we never even knew was a possibility: the full-court bounce-shot […]

  • Dwyane Wade Hits LeBron James With a Touchdown Pass (Video)

    Dwyane Wade Hits LeBron James With a Touchdown Pass (Video)

    If LeBron James had decided to stick with football and ditch basketball, there is little doubt that his athleticism would have landed him on an NFL roster.  But what position would he play? At 6’8″, 250-pounds, his size makes him a suitable option at defensive end or tight end, but I think most would argue […]

    Stat Line of the Night — 2/4/2013 — LeBron James

    LeBron James came oh-so-close to recording his third triple-double of the season during last night’s game against the Charlotte Bobcats, but it wasn’t his 31 points, eight assists or eight rebounds that impressed us the most.  Rather, it was his efficiency on the night that has earned him a spot in this post. You see, […]

    Charles Barkley Interrupts the Phoenix Weather Forecast (Video)

    Charles Barkley has been on television since 2000. In fact, pretty soon his television career on TNT will be longer than his NBA career.  So by now, you would expect the guy to be pretty comfortable in front of a camera. And yet, when Chuck stopped by the local ABC affiliate in Phoenix recently to […]

    Stat Line of the Night — 1/27/2013 — Kobe Bryant

    Despite the additions of Dwight Howard and Steve Nash in the offseason, the Los Angeles Lakers have struggled mightily this season, putting together a 17-25 record through their first 42 games of the season.  That abysmal record had many suggesting that perhaps the team would be better off if their high-scoring superstar, Kobe Bryant, ditched […]

    This Day In Sports History (January 18th) – Robert Parish

    It was on this day in 1998 that the Boston Celtics retired the number “00″ formerly worn by center Robert Parish.  Parish became the 20th player to have his number retired by the Celtic organization. Robert Parish enjoyed a 21-year Hall-of-Fame career, spending 15 of those seasons with the Celtics.  Parish was part of three […]

    Stat Line of the Night — 1/17/2013 — LeBron James

    On Wednesday night, LeBron James became the youngest player in NBA history to reach 20,000 career points.  On Thursday night, he began making his ascent towards the 30,000-point plateau with a 39-point effort against the Lakers in Los Angeles. With Jack Nicholson and plenty of other celebrities in attendance at the Staples Center to watch […]

    John Wall Broke Ish Smith’s Ankles With This Crossover (Video)

    The Washington Wizards may be the worst team in the entire NBA at the moment, but they have been able to string together a season-high, three-game winning streak, with their latest victory coming last night against the Orlando Magic. And highlighting the Wizards’ 120-91 beatdown of the Magic was this crossover from John Wall, which […]

    Stat Line of the Night — 1/14/2013 — Russell Westbrook

    The Oklahoma City Thunder visited Phoenix on Tuesday looking to become the first team in the NBA to reach 30 wins on the season.  And they would accomplish that feat, thanks in large part to the performances put forth by their two superstars. Leading the way in the points category was Kevin Durant, who scored […]

    Watch This Kid Drain An Impressive Backwards Buzzer Beater (Video)

    In basketball there are buzzer beaters, and then there are backwards, over-the-head, two-handed buzzer beaters taken by clumsy-looking chubby kids. The video you are about to watch is of the latter variety. Recently, an eighth grade kid named Matt DeMember made such a shot while playing a game in a co-ed hoops league at Greenridge […]

    Stat Line of the Night — 1/8/2013 — Nikola Pekovic

    With Kevin Love sideline due to a fractured right hand, the Minnesota Timberwolves will need someone to replace his 18.3 points  and 14.0 rebounds per game.  During last night’s game against the Atlanta Hawks, that someone was center Nikola Peckovic. Peckovic was a monster on the boards, as he pulled down a total of 18 […]
