  • The Stat Line Of The Night — 2/9/11 — Dwight Howard

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 2/9/11 — Dwight Howard

    The Orlando Magic have struggled as of late, heading into last night’s game with only four wins in their previous nine contests.  They have also struggled on the road, sitting only one game above .500 away from the Amway Center.  That made the thought of earning a win in Philadelphia against a suddenly surging 76ers […]

    Check Out This Incredible 90-Foot Buzzer-Beater (Video)

    Perhaps the only thing more incredible than this basket is the cheesiness of the accompanying graphics and effects.  Black & Yellow?  Are you kidding me?  I figured that song would have died along with the Penguins’ Stanley Cup hopes and the Steelers’ Super Bowl run. As for the shot, it was just about as remarkable […]

    Vote Matt Bonner For The Three-Point Competition (Video)

    The contestants for the Foot Locker Three-Point Contest during the NBA’s All-Star Weekend have yet to be determined.  That means there is still time for the guys at The Basketball Jones to convince commissioner David Stern that the San Antonio Spurs’ Matt Bonner should be there. Bonner is currently hitting 50.4 percent of his three-point […]

    Sex Or Basketball: What Would You Choose? (SFW Pic)

    Is this the most dedicated, hard-working basketball player ever?  Or just some guy with his priorities in the wrong order? Perhaps some more info and better pictures of these two facebookers would help us answer those questions.  Is this kid a future NBAer?  Is he playing recreational ball at the local gym?  Does his team […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 2/3/11 — LeBron James

    At the beginning of the season the Miami Heat made it known to all that they are looking to win a Championship.  In order to do so, they will likely have to go through the Orlando Magic at some point during their playoff run.  That made last night’s meeting between the two teams that much […]

    Justin Bieber Gets No Love From The Knicks Fans (Video)

    Those New York Knicks fans sure are one tough crowd.  In addition to booing every visiting team and/or player that steps onto the court at Madison Square Gardens, they also will not hesitate to shower teenage pop-stars with catcalls.  Justin Bieber was the latest victim of their disapproval, despite being only 16-years-old and having previously […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night – 2/1/11 – LaMarcus Aldridge

    Not many teams have had success against the San Antonio Spurs this season, and the odds appeared to be stacked against the Portland Trail Blazers last night.  Playing without two key players in Brandon Roy and Greg Oden for most of the year, the Blazers have had a much more difficult time finding wins compared […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night – 1/31/11 – Blake Griffin

    The Los Angeles Clippers went into last night’s game against the Milwaukee Bucks at the Staples Center having won their previous eight home games, and after watching his double-double streak end last week, the Clippers superstar rookie, Blake Griffin was not about to let another streak come to a halt. Griffin was doing it all […]

  • The Stat Line Of The Night – 1/30/11 – Marcin Gortat

    The Stat Line Of The Night – 1/30/11 – Marcin Gortat

    When Marcin Gortat was traded from the Orlando Magic to the Phoenix Suns as part of a six-player swap on December 18, his name was believed to be an afterthought in a deal that included the likes of Vince Carter, Hedo Turkoglu and Jason Richardson.  However, Gortat has not only proven to be an impact […]

    Phoenix Suns Stuntman Dunks Ball, Himself Through Rim (Video)

    It was a rather disappointing opening 90 second for the Phoenix Suns’ stunt team during their performance Wednesday night.  Sure, they may have made their first two baskets, but they followed that up with five consecutive misses!  Things got so bad you could hear the word “awful” coming from the mouths of several people around […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night – 1/27/11 – Landry Fields

    When awarding a “Stat Line of the Night,” one must remember that while big numbers are always impressive, nothing is more important that getting your team the win.  It is difficult to award such accolades to a player on a losing team, and while some may feel as though the individual’s performance is more important […]

    A Guide To Where The Stars Sit At A Lakers Game (Infographic)

    One great thing about watching a Lakers game is witnessing the brilliance of Kobe Bryant and Lamar Odom, but it can be equally entertaining to look beyond the players on the court and check out which Hollywood stars are in attendance at the Staples Center. For those who can’t seem to figure out exactly where […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 1/26/11 — Kevin Durant

    Last night’s game between the Minnesota Timberwolves and the Oklahoma City Thunder featured big performances from several top five NBA Draft picks; including Jeff Green (5th pick, 19 pts, 8 reb), Russell Westbrook (4th pick, 16 pts, 8 ast), Kevin Love (5th pick, 31 pts, 21 rebs), and Michael Beasley (2nd pick, 30 pts, 9 […]
