    Let’s All Watch Hasheem Thabeet Trip Over His Own Feet (Video)

    There was plenty of hype surrounding Hasheem Thabeet coming out of college, as the 7’3″ center was drafted by the Memphis Grizzlies with the second overall pick after leading UConn to the 2009 NCAA Final Four. But things haven’t quite worked out as planned for Thabeet in the pros.  After averaging 3.1 points, 3.6 rebounds […]

    The Sky Was Falling At The Sleep Train Arena Last Night (Video)

    On February 27 of this year, it appeared as though the Sacramento Kings would be getting themselves a new arena in downtown Sacramento, a move which in all likelihood would guarantee that the team remains in the capital of California.  However, that deal fell through on April 13 when the Maloof family announced their intentions […]

  • This Day In Sports History (November 2nd) – NBA in Japan

    This Day In Sports History (November 2nd) – NBA in Japan

    It was on this day in 1990 that the Phoenix Suns defeated the Utah Jazz 119-96 at the Tokyo Metropolitan Gymnasium in Tokyo, Japan.  This was the first regular season game of the four major professional North American sports (NHL, MLB, NFL, NBA) to be played outside of North America. The Suns were led that […]

    25 Hilarious Basketball Fail GIFs

    I don’t know about you, but I’ve been so preoccupied with the NFL, the MLB postseason, and the fact that there is no NHL that the 2012-13 NBA season kind of snuck up on me. It seems like just yesterday we were watching the USA All-Stars romp at the London 2012 Olympics and talking about […]

    Pacers’ Roy Hibbert Was Part Of A “Gangnam Style” Flash Mob (Video)

    The Indiana Pacers’ Roy Hibbert may have made only his first All-Star appearance last season, which was his fourth in the NBA. However, he’d already become a fan-favorite in Indianapolis thanks in large part to his special promotion called “Roy Hibbert’s Area 55.” You see, for the last three years, Hibbert has personally purchased 55 […]

    Jeremy Evans Had The Best 10-Second Sequence Of The NBA Pre-Season (Video)

    During the second quarter of yesterday’s preseason game between the Utah Jazz and the Los Angeles Clippers, Jeremy Evans provided spectators with what will undoubtedly go down as the greatest 10-second sequence of the 2012 NBA preseason.  In fact, this brilliant energetic burst from the high-flying Jazz forward may in fact go down as the […]

    Watch 5’5″ Porter Maberry Perform An Incredible Eastbay Dunk (Video)

    Just because you’re short, that doesn’t mean you can’t be a good basketball player. We learned that a few weeks ago from a guy named Jamani Swanson. However, if you’re particularly short, that does usually preclude the possibility of performing highlight reel dunks. Of course, there are exceptions to this. Spud Webb, for example, was […]

    Watch Dwyane Wade Miss A Wide Open Dunk (Video)

    How often does a 1-on-0 break end without a basket in the NBA? Like, 1 in 10? Or maybe 1 in 100? It can’t be often, that’s for sure. Unfortunately, when it is your first game back after undergoing knee surgery, the chances are apparently much higher. Just ask the Miami Heat’s Dwyane Wade. After […]

    Blake Griffin Drains A 75-Foot Shot At Clippers Scrimmage (Video)

    The 2012 NBA pre-season hasn’t even begun yet, and Blake Griffin is already providing us with highlight reel clips.  But his latest highlight doesn’t feature another one of his patented high-flying slam dunks.  Instead, it displays another much-less talked about facet of Griffin’s game: his shooting range. The reason why not many people talk about […]

    This Day In Sports History (September 21st) — United States Dream Team

    It was on this day in 1991 that U.S.A. Basketball announced the “Dream Team” for the 1992 Summer Olympics in Barcelona, Spain.  Ten of the best players in the NBA were named to the team, with two more added in May of 1992. Charles Barkley, Larry Bird, Patrick Ewing, Magic Johnson, Michael Jordan, Karl Malone, […]
