  • 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)

    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 […]

    Ray Lewis Delivers Pregame Speech For Stanford At NIT Tournament Semis (Video)

    Many NCAA men’s basketball teams would have a difficult time getting up for an NIT Tournament game, but the Stanford Cardinals appeared to have no such problem prior to their semi-final match-up with Massachusetts, thanks to some help from Ray Lewis. The Baltimore Raves linebacker has developed a reputation for delivering some of the greatest […]

    7-Foot-8 Harlem Globetrotter Can Dunk Without Jumping (Video)

    They call him “Tiny,” but there is clearly nothing tiny about a man who can dunk a basketball on a regulation size net without even having to jump! While most of the other Harlem Globetrotters players are known for their superior dribbling skills and impressive leaping abilities, Tiny Sturgess is best known for his incredible […]

  • Mick Pinnisi Gives Us The Worst Flop In Basketball History (Video)

    Mick Pinnisi Gives Us The Worst Flop In Basketball History (Video)

    Chris Bosh, LeBron James and Kemba Walker have all provided us with some great basketball flops, but none may be more embarrassing, or more comical, than the flop provided by Mick Pinnisi of the Philippines Basketball Association. After mixing it up with Will McDonald under the basket, Pinnisi was on the receiving end of a […]

  • Three Harlem Globetrotters Take On An Entire Team (Video)

    Three Harlem Globetrotters Take On An Entire Team (Video)

    Watching these three members of the Harlem Globetrotters dance around the opposition makes me wonder why an NBA team doesn’t acquire the services of “TNT,” “Too Tall” and “Firefly,” surround them with some big men, and let them run wild on the court? As a Toronto Raptors fan, I can’t help but wonder why they […]

  • Jeremy Lamb’s Needless Dunk Attempt Was A Big Failure (Video)

    Jeremy Lamb’s Needless Dunk Attempt Was A Big Failure (Video)

    A miss on a breakaway windmill dunk during the final seconds of a 13-point loss to Iowa State in the opening round of the NCAA Tournament seemed like quite the appropriate way for the UConn Huskies to end their 2011-12 season. A team stacked with talent, the Huskies simply couldn’t get the job done when […]

    Wizards’ Nick Young Airs It Out On A Layup (Video)

    After watching Rajon Rondo make a mess out of his breakaway layup attempt during Tuesday night’s game between the Boston Celtics and the Houston Rockets, I didn’t believe I’d see a miss as embarrassing as that one in a while… …and then I was treated to this laughable highlight from last night’s game between the […]

    The Drexel Dragons entered last night’s CAA Championship Game on a 19-game winning streak, but despite all the success that they have had during the 2011-12 NCAA basketball season, they may have been stripped of their chances of making the NCAA Tourney following a 59-56 loss to last year’s Cinderella team, the VCU Rams. And […]

  • This Day In Sports History (March 2nd) – Wilt Chamberlain

    This Day In Sports History (March 2nd) – Wilt Chamberlain

    It was on this day in 1962 that Wilt Chamberlain scored an incredible 100 points in a single NBA game.  Chamberlain accomplished the feat while playing for the Philadelphia Warriors in a 169-147 win over the New York Knicks. Wilt broke five records in that game: points in a quarter with 31, points in a […]

    “Piggyback Bandit” Has Been Banned In Five States

    There is a man who has been going around high schools in America seeking piggyback rides from student athletes.  His name is Sherwin Shayegan, but most people now refer to him as “The Piggyback Bandit” (No. 22 in the image above). His antics began back in 2008, when he used to appear at basketball, hockey, […]

    This Day In Sports History (February 17th) – NBA Hall Of Fame

    It was on this day in 1968 that the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall Of Fame opened its doors to the public.  It is located in Springfield, Massachussets and is named after James Naismith, the creator of basketball.  Naismith invented the sport in 1891 while teaching a class at Springfield College. As of today, the Hall […]
