    TNT’s Ernie Johnson Is Not Impressed with His Halftime Notes (Video)

    You gotta hand it to the folks behind TNT’s NBA Playoff coverage. They’ve assembled a charismatic bunch of analysts, and they give them free reign to do or say whatever they want. I mean, these dudes always keep it real. The morning after a game, you’re just as likely to see highlights of their intermission […]

    New Orleans Hurricanes Of NBA D-League Brawl With Chinese Basketball Team (Video)

    Last year it was the Georgetown Hoyas that were brawling the Bayi Rockets of China during their Goodwill Exhibition Tour.  Yesterday, it was the New Orleans Hurricanes of the NBA’s D-League that were attempting to assert their physical dominance over their Chinese opponents, the Zhejiang Lions. You think it’s about time American basketball teams stop […]

    25 Ridiculous Basketball Flops (GIFs)

    Is it just me, or is there a flopping epidemic in the game of basketball? Seems like I can’t turn on an NBA game this postseason without seeing some dude who makes $5 million flailing around like he’s being attacked by a swarm of bees. Perhaps they’re all watching too much soccer. I mean, there […]

    All-American Anthony Davis Can’t Handle Extra Spicy Chicken Wing (Video)

    Anthony Davis only played one year of college basketball before declaring for the NBA draft, but you’d never know it by reading the accomplishments on his resume. National Champion, Consensus First-Team All-American, 2011-12 NCAA Division I blocked shots leader, all-time single-season SEC blocked shots leader, Oscar Robertson Trophy winner, Adolph Rupp Trophy winner, AP Player […]

    Check Out This 8-Year-Old’s Ankle-Breaking Killer Crossover (Video)

    We’ve seen a lot of awesome killer crossovers over the years. Sometimes they’re so good, we call them “ankle-breakers” because the defenders trip all over themselves just trying to keep up—falling down like they just broke an ankle. Still, I don’t think I’ve ever seen a killer crossover quite like the one you’re about to […]

  • This Desperate, No-Look Basketball Shot Somehow Went In (Video)

    This Desperate, No-Look Basketball Shot Somehow Went In (Video)

    For most basketball players, no-look equals no chance at hitting the basket, but for Armands Šķēle of the Estonian Basketball League’s BC Kalev/Cramo, no-look equals no problem. He proved just that during a recent semifinal play-off game against Tarvas, as he chased down a loose ball that was headed out-of-bounds, and scooped it back towards […]

  • This Day In Sports History (April 20th) – Michael Jordan

    This Day In Sports History (April 20th) – Michael Jordan

    It was on this day in 1986 that Michael Jordan set an NBA playoff record with an incredible 63 points.  Jordan broke the mark that was previously held by Elgin Baylor who scored 61 points in the 1962 NBA finals. Jordan was able to play in only 18 regular season games that year due to […]

    Nets Fan Takes A Ball To The Face While Texting (Video)

    I have already told you time and time again about the dangers one may encounter while sitting courtside at a basketball game.  Therefore, I shouldn’t have to tell you that it probably isn’t safe to be texting during a game while sitting courtside, as you likely won’t be prepared to dodge any flying basketballs or […]

  • More Riots In Kentucky Following Wildcats’ NCAA Tournament Victory (Video)

    More Riots In Kentucky Following Wildcats’ NCAA Tournament Victory (Video)

    Seeing as how there were riots in Lexington, Kentucky following the Wildcats’ Final Four victory over Louisville on Saturday, it would only make sense that we see more riots develop following their victory over the Kansas Jayhawks in last night’s tournament finals. Lexington police may have been better prepared for last night’s events after witnessing […]

  • Stat Line Of The Night — 4/2/12 — Anthony Davis

    Stat Line Of The Night — 4/2/12 — Anthony Davis

    Anthony Davis is slated to go first overall in this summer’s NBA Draft, largely because of his ability to do it all on the court.  He put that impressive ability on display during last night’s NCAA Championship Game against the Kansas Jayhawks. Davis couldn’t seem to find his stroke from the field, as he connected […]

  • AJ Price Was Photobombing Tyler Hansbrough In A Creepy Way Last Night (Video)

    AJ Price Was Photobombing Tyler Hansbrough In A Creepy Way Last Night (Video)

    The look on A.J. Price’s face as he taunted teammate Tyler Hansbrough on the Pacers’ bench during last night’s game against the Washington Wizards was probably the creepiest thing I’ve seen since Jerry Sandusky’s interview with Bob Costas.  And while it may have creeped out most of those who witnessed it, it wasn’t enough to creep […]
