  • This Day In Sports History (May 5th) – Boston Celtics

    This Day In Sports History (May 5th) – Boston Celtics

    It was on this day in 1969 that the Boston Celtics and Los Angeles Lakers played Game 7 of the NBA finals.  The Celtics would go on to win the game 108-106, giving Boston their 11th NBA championship in 13 years. Despite the Celtics recent dominance, they were actually considered underdogs, as the Lakers boasted […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 5/2/11 — Joe Johnson

    Not many people were giving the Atlanta Hawks much of a chance heading into their second-round series against the Chicago Bulls, but last night’s performance had to change the minds of at least a few individuals. The Hawks wasted no time stealing home-court advantage from the Chicago Bulls, thanks in large part to the hot […]

    Game One of the Eastern Conference semifinal series between the Miami Heat and the Boston Celtics could have been a lot more interesting down the stretch had it not been for what may very well be the softest (and worst) call of the playoffs thus far. Everyone knows that the intensity of the games gets […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 4/24/11 — Chris Paul

    Not many people gave the New Orleans Hornets a chance against the Los Angeles Lakers in their opening round series of the 2011 NBA playoffs.  Following last night’s game, a few minds may have been changed, thanks to an incredible performance from Hornets guard Chris Paul. Paul was doing it all in Game 4, recording […]

    Picture Of The Day: Wrong Ball Bro!

    Kevin Garnett is no stranger to getting down and dirty on the hard-court, although I believe what the New York Knicks’ Jared Jeffries had in mind here was a little to down and dirty for the Celtics forward. With time running down in Game 2 between the Celtics and the Knicks, Jeffries hit the floor […]

    The San Antonio Spurs and the Los Angeles Lakers had already watched home-court advantage slip away with Game One losses earlier in the day.  The Oklahoma City Thunder did not want to become the third Western Conference team to lose their opening game of the first round on their home court.  Kevin Durant would make […]

    Sacramento Kings Broadcasters Get Choked Up Following Final Game (Video)

    With the Maloofs and the NBA unable to put together enough money or support to build a new arena in Sacramento, the future of the Kings franchise will enter the off-season with plenty of uncertainty.  As a result, Kings broadcasters Grant Napear and Jerry Reynolds spoke about the likelihood that last night’s home game against […]

    Is This 70-Meter Basketball Shot The Highest Ever Made? (Video)

    Last month we showed you footage of some young males throwing a 120 yard hole-in-one on a golf course.  Originally I had figured it was nothing more than a bunch of guys with a new video camera and plenty of time on their hands simply trying to become the latest viral sensation on YouTube, but […]

    With the playoffs right around the corner, now is the perfect time for players and teams alike to pick up their game and get themselves in a groove for the coming of the second season.  LeBron James and the Miami Heat appear to be doing just that, as was evident during their game last night […]

    Ty Lawson Hit His First 10 Three-Pointers Saturday Night (Video)

    During Saturday night’s game against the Minnesota Timberwolves, Ty Lawson became the first player in NBA history to hit his first ten three-point attempts in a game.  The former Tar Heel was unstoppable, and was only one three-pointer away from setting an NBA record for most three-pointers made without a miss, until he went for […]

    Asian Kid Shoots Hoops at Record Speeds (Video)

    Basketball is nowhere as big a sport in Taiwan as it is in the United States. Instead of shooting hoops in a court with a real basketball, many players in Japan have relegated themselves to shooting hoops at a local arcade. The “sport” has become something of a national pastime for the Taiwanese. A video […]

    While the Chicago Bulls couldn’t officially clinch top spot in the Eastern Conference, they could make it as close as possible to a sure thing with a win over the Boston Celtics at the United Center last night.  No only would they get that win, but they would do so in a rather impressive fashion, […]

    Tough Defense (GIF)

    It appears as though soccer isn’t the only sport with a flying kung-fu kick problem.  Basketball is apparently undergoing similar issues, as is evident in the image above. Upon first glance, a kick to the face may seem like a great way to defend the three-ball, but it is probably also a great way to […]

    Picture Of The Day: How Is Magic Johnson Still Alive?

    “How is Magic Johnson still alive?”  “How is Magic Johnson not dead?”  Is this really the type of garbage that people search for on the internet these days?  How about looking up the actual effects of the HIV virus and ways that it can be prevented from becoming AIDS.  You will probably find the answer […]
