    J.R. Smith’s Ridiculous Reverse Alley-Oop Dunk (Video)

    J.R. Smith is such a mercurial player. When he’s acting up–which is the case more often than not–you begin to wonder how this clown is still in the NBA.  But when he’s good, he’s really good. Last night against the San Antonio Spurs, Smith showed flashes of the latter.  The best example was this insane […]

    When he’s not throwing down monster jams and posterizing opponents left and right, Blake Griffin likes to have some fun.

    Santa Claus had a rough Christmas. It’s bad enough having to jet across the planet in an antiquated sleigh being pulled by reindeer to deliver gifts to children all over the world. On top of that, he had to go to his second job as halftime entertainer for the Chicago Bulls after his long journey, […]

    Size may be important in the game of basketball, but it isn’t everything. Muggsy Bogues and Spud Webb demonstrated just that during their playing days in the NBA, as both players went on to have successful professional basketball careers, despite standing only 5’3″ and 5’7″, respectively. And now, it is 11-year-old Julian Newman who is showing the […]

    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.

    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 […]
