  • Kobe Bryant, ‘The Kloser’ (Video)

    Kobe Bryant, ‘The Kloser’ (Video)

    Vitamin Water has produced some quality commercials (see Steve Nash, David Ortiz, Brian Urlacher, and my favorite the one with David Wright and  ’The Situation’). This one with Los Angeles Lakers star guard, Kobe Bryant, is no different — it makes me want to drink their product. Kobe has been coined ‘the kloser’ for his […]

  • Ron Artest Drops New Single “Champions” (Audio)

    Ron Artest Drops New Single “Champions” (Audio)

    Ron Artert dropped his new single titled “Champions” and it’s actually a solid track. I’m not sure that people will be driving around with their trunks thumping this cut, but for an athlete this qualifies as a nice effort. They aren’t exactly known for producing great music. Right Shaq? When I listen to the cut […]

    LAPD Wants To Know If You Can Identify Any Of These Men (Video)

    The mayhem that ensues during post-victory celebrations is nothing new.  Not even in Los Angeles.  However, sometimes such celebrations are taken to the next level, leading to acts of violence, vandalism, and arson.  That was the case following the Lakers’ Game 7 win over the Boston Celtics on Thursday.  With most LA fans in a […]

    Ron Artest: I Want To Thank My Psychiatrist

    When it came down to crunch time in Game 7 of the NBA Championship Finals, Ron Artest was a key factor in the Los Angeles Lakers’ 83-79 victory over the Boston Celtics.  His clutch three-pointer late in the game pretty much sealed his team’s fate, and perhaps the only moment more memorable than that shot […]

  • David Kalb Hits Amazing Drive-By Trick Shot (Video)

    David Kalb Hits Amazing Drive-By Trick Shot (Video)

    David Kalb has proven himself before when he beat LeBron James in a game of H-O-R-S-E (not an easy feat when you consider what we have seen from King James in the past).  That was almost two years ago, but the former member of Capital University’s basketball team has once again taken his act to […]

  • Paul Pierce To Lakers Fans: “We Ain’t Comin’ Back To L.A.”

    Paul Pierce To Lakers Fans: “We Ain’t Comin’ Back To L.A.”

    After the Lakers easily took Game 1 of the NBA Championship Finals against the Boston Celtics, it appeared as though the series was over before it had even begun.  That was until last night, when the Celtics rebounded to take Game 2 in Los Angeles, and in the process, take control of the ever-so-important home-court […]

  • How Long Before We See This In A Slam Dunk Contest? (GIF)

    How Long Before We See This In A Slam Dunk Contest? (GIF)

    I think I speak for many when I say that the NBA’s Slam Dunk Competition is just not what it used to be.  Ever since Vince Carter dazzled us with his high-flying abilities in 2000, there just doesn’t seem to be much creativity and originality involved anymore.  In order to change that, perhaps all that […]

    The Los Angeles Lakers open their NBA Finals series at home tonight against the Boston Celtics, and while most will have their eyes set on the action taking place on the court, I will be doing my best to try and get a good glimpse of the stands in the Staples Center to see if this douchebag is lurking around somewhere.

  • White Kids Can’t Jump

    White Kids Can’t Jump

    The video says that this net was 10-feet high.  The kid appears to have a 6-foot vertical without jumping, and it looks as though he has a 2-foot boost from the playground set that he is leaping from.  That leaves him with about two more feet to go in order to successfully complete this dunk. […]

  • A 90-Foot Hook Shot…Nothing But Net!

    A 90-Foot Hook Shot…Nothing But Net!

    Real or fake?  That is the question we are confronted with after taking a look at this clip of a guy sinking a 90-foot hook shot. It is a tough call, and a look at the backdrop may make you want to believe that it is fake (settings don’t get any faker looking than that, […]

  • Jason Williams Blows Up on Reporters in Locker Room (video)

    Jason Williams Blows Up on Reporters in Locker Room (video)

    Things are starting to get testy in the Orlando Magic locker room.  Only it’s not amongst teammates, as far as we know, it’s their back up point guard getting annoyed with the reporters blocking his locker while he’s trying to get dressed. While reporters were interviewing Matt Barnes, you can hear Jason Williams in the […]

  • Epic Garbage Shot (GIF)

    Epic Garbage Shot (GIF)

    Eat your heart out Dude Perfect.  You may have perfected the art of the long basketball shot, but you will never be able to sink the garbage into a distant can like this guy.  Who knew that taking out the trash could be so fun.  Now if only every parent could get their children to […]

    10 Lucky Charms You Could See at the NBA Draft Lottery

    Tonight at 7:30 PM EST, the NBA Draft Lottery will take place. At this point, all teams can hope for is a little luck — the odds are locked in and the rest is up to how the ping pong balls will fall. All of the involved teams and their representatives will be clinging to […]

  • The Stat Line of the Night – 5/11/10 – Paul Pierce

    The Stat Line of the Night – 5/11/10 – Paul Pierce

    With the best-of-seven series between the Boston Celtics and the Cleveland Cavaliers tied at 2-2, Game 5 Tuesday night was critical for both teams.  The last thing LeBron James and the Cavs wanted was to be traveling to Boston for game six with their playoff lives on the line, but Paul Pierce’s performance would help […]
