  • The Stat Line Of The Night — 1/17/11 — Blake Griffin

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 1/17/11 — Blake Griffin

    Make no mistake about it.  Blake Griffin is much more than just a highlight reel dunk machine.  He proved that yesterday afternoon during a game against the Indiana Pacers.  The game plan to stop Griffin was quite obvious: Keep the man from dominating the paint and force him to shoot shots from the perimeter.  Unfortunately […]

  • Greatest Dance Performance Ever via Bobcats Jumbotron (Video)

    Greatest Dance Performance Ever via Bobcats Jumbotron (Video)

    The Kiss Cam has always been my favorite jumbotron scene, but that may soon change thanks to the Charlotte Bobcats’ Sprite Spark Fan Cam, which asks fans to dance their hearts out when the camera is on them for a chance to win a prize.  We are not quite sure what that prize is, but […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 1/12/11– Zach Randolph

    Sitting one spot out of the playoffs in the tough Western Conference, the Memphis Grizzlies are in desperate need of wins in order to keep pace with the teams in front of them, while staying ahead of those behind them in the standings.  Last night’s visit to Detroit to take on a struggling Pistons team […]

    With only five wins on the season and zero wins in their last eight games, it was beginning to look like the Sacramento Kings would need a miracle to earn another victory before the new year.  And after the Memphis Grizzlies O.J. Mayo nailed a jumper to put his team up by one with only […]

    This 12-Year-Old Kid’s Got Game (Video)

    Kobe Bryant may have finally met his match, and we are not talking about LeBron James here.  In fact, we are not talking about any NBA player.  Not even any college player.  Instead, we are referring to 12-year-old Jordan McCabe of Seattle, who recently put on a show for the KOMO 4 News Station. During […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night – 12/27/10 – Michael Beasley

    After being drafted second overall in the 2008 NBA draft, Michael Beasley had a tough time living up to expectations during his first two years in the league with the Miami Heat.  However, the Heat’s signing of “the big three” left them with no choice but to deal Beasley away to the Minnesota Timberwolves, and […]

  • BOOM Head Shot (GIF)

    BOOM Head Shot (GIF)

    The Orlando Magic’s Dwight Howard is no stranger to slamming a basketball over an opponent’s head.  However, he usually does so by getting up in the air and using his big body to throw down a nasty dunk over the outstretched hand of a defender, rather than by whipping the ball off an opponent’s head. […]

  • Andray Blatche Proves He Can Be Just As Bad As Hedo Turkoglu (Video)

    Andray Blatche Proves He Can Be Just As Bad As Hedo Turkoglu (Video)

    When I saw Hedo Turkoglu get rejected by the rim last night while attempting a dunk during a game against the Dallas Mavericks, it made me want to laugh.  Watching the Washington Wizards’ Andray Blatche muff this wide open lay-up against the Chicago Bulls last night makes me want to cry. Yes, it really is […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night – 12/22/10 – Carlos Boozer

    Looking to assert themselves as one of the top teams in the Eastern Conference, the Chicago Bulls have done just that, winning eight of their last nine games heading into last night’s contest against the Washington Wizards.  And thanks t a stellar performance from their top off-season acquisition, they stayed hot heading into the Christmas […]

    Picture Of The Day: Boston Celtics Cry-Baby

    Would someone please explain to me exactly what is going on here?  That is clearly a mask, and not just the face of some grossly over-sized child.  But what does it all mean?  He was wearing a Celtics shirt during their game against the New York Knicks at Madison Square Gardens.  So is he a […]

  • Oregon High Schooler Shatters The Backboard (Video)

    Oregon High Schooler Shatters The Backboard (Video)

    This video of Woodburn High School power forward Andy Avgi shattering the backboard following a breakaway dunk is impressive on two fronts.  First, it is quite impressive that a high schooler was able to accomplish such a feat, but even more impressive is that fact that he is white.  Now I don’t want to sound […]

  • LeBron James Hits A Prayer From Behind The Backboard (Video)

    LeBron James Hits A Prayer From Behind The Backboard (Video)

    Love him or hate him, LeBron James is a pretty damn good basketball player.  And despite his team’s early struggles, he continues to do it all on the court, averaging 24 points per game, 5.9 rebounds, 7.2 assists, and hitting shots from just about everywhere on the court. With LeBron and the Heat now finding […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night – 12/14/10 – Carmelo Anthony

    After going on a seven-game winning streak, the Denver Nuggets found themselves stuck in a two-game losing streak heading into last night’s game against the Orlando Magic. Looking to avoid making it three losses in a row, Carmelo Anthony knew his team needed a big game out of him, and he delivered. Despite recent trade […]

    High School Basketball Player Loses His Cool, Attacks Referee (Video)

    If you thought the NBA players were upset about the increase in technical foul calls, you haven’t seen nothing yet! After being assessed a technical foul and ejected from the game for pushing a member of the opposing team, this player from Desoto County High School in Florida took his anger out on the referee, shoving him with […]

  • Adrian Moore Is Throwing Down Dunks At The Age Of 11 (Video)

    Adrian Moore Is Throwing Down Dunks At The Age Of 11 (Video)

    Somebody get me this kid’s passport! There is absolutely no way he is 11-years-old.   Look at the size of his teammates while they do lay-up drills, which are more like dunking drills for seventh-grader Adrian Moore.  And the way he dunked over that white boy in the first highlight is unheard of.  Aren’t 11-year-olds […]
