    Yesterday, ESPN reported that the Los Angeles Lakers are looking to sign either Carmelo Anthony or LeBron James—or both—when the two become free agents again after next season. That was some pretty big news, and it must have gotten Lakers fans a little worked up. In the meantime, however, they will have to settle for […]

    Viral Vine: Is This the Greatest Pool, Trick-Shot, Alley-Oop Dunk Ever?

    When I first watched this Vine, I thought I was witnessing “the greatest pool, trick-shot, alley-oop dunk ever,” but then I remembered those dunking teens from Mission Viejo that we showed you back in 2010.  Now I’m not so sure. On the one hand, if we base it on high-flying acrobatics, those Mission Viejo take the […]

    Viral Vine: Rampage Roy Posterizing a Girl is All The Rage

    Remember back in May when we told you about the latest meme to hit the internet, called “posterizing”?  Well it appears as though posterizing has survived the typical one-month expiration period that most internet memes are given, because if the following vine from Rampage Roy is any indication, posterizing is still alive and very well […]

    Back in May, while filming scenes from The Amazing Spider-Man 2 in Manhattan, Andrew Garfield decided to kill some time on the set by shooting hoops with some kids on a basketball court in Chinatown—while still wearing his Spidey suit. It made for quite the memorable scene. Well, apparently a street baller who goes by […]

    The Butler Bulldog Is Training Hard for the Big East (Video)

    When I heard there was a video of Trip, the Butler Bulldog, training for the school’s transfer to the new Big East Conference, I kind of figured it would show him doing a bunch of Catholic stuff, like studying the catechism, hanging out with the Pope, and praying to the Blessed Virgin Mary. After all, […]

    This Day In Sports History (June 28th) – 1995 NBA Draft

    It was on this day in 1995 that the NBA Draft took place at the Skydome in Toronto, Ontario.  This marked the first occasion that the draft was held outside the United States. The 1995 NBA Draft was the first for the expansion Vancouver Grizzlies and Toronto Raptors, who held the sixth and seventh picks, […]

    Check Out this Bull Dog’s LeBron James Imitation (Video)

    You know what’s really great about LeBron James? He’s complex. You can’t just slap one single label on the guy. He’s not just the greatest basketball player on earth, or a big whiny baby, or a nice guy, or a douche bag, or a hero, or a villain, or a clutch shooter, or a choke […]
