    These Two Timofey Mozgov Commercials Are So Bad, They’re Good (Videos)

    Timofey Mozgov will probably never be a spokesperson for Nike, adidas, Gatorade, Under Armour, or any other big company who is known to hire big-name athletes to big-money endorsement deals.  But that doesn’t mean he’ll never get his very own commercial deal—which is exactly what happened, obviously. The establishment who was kind enough to award […]

    Kentucky Wins. Ashley Judd Approves (Videos)

    There are plenty of highlights we could show you from the Kentucky Wildcats’ 78-39 romp of No. 5 seed West Virginia. There’s the two-man blocks: There’s the teammate-on-teammate posterizing on alley-oops (because the Wildcats players seemed to be the only ones around either team’s basket throughout the majority of the contest): And there’s the ridiculous […]

    Keith Gibbs Gives Us Another Story About Michael Jordan Trash-Talking

    We’ve heard plenty of great Michael Jordan trash-talking stories over the years.  Just a few weeks ago Reggie Miller sat down with Jimmy Kimmel and told him a story about the time during his rookie year when MJ outscored him 40-2 in a half before referring to himself as “Black Jesus.” Today, we add another story to the growing […]

    3rd Grader Hits No-Look, Backwards, Buzzer-Beating 3-Pointer (Video)

    A no-look, backwards, buzzer-beating 3-pointer is impressive, no matter who hits it.  But it’s especially impressive when a third-grader hits it—which is what happened during the AAA County Championship Game in Maryland. With time winding down in the first half, young Tyrik Petway set up to take the last shot of the frame.  It seemed […]

    Bucks’ Khris Middleton Hits Crazy Game-Winning 3 vs. Heat (Video)

    Tuesday night’s game between the Milwaukee Bucks and Miami Heat provided us with one of the NBA’s craziest endings to a game this season. The real madness began with 10.8 seconds remaining in the fourth quarter.  The Heat were leading 88-86 and the two teams were getting set for a jump ball at Miami’s free-throw […]

    Eric Gordon Loses Tooth After Smashing Face on Court (Video)

    During Sunday afternoon’s game between the Pelicans and Clippers, Eric Gordon smashed his face on the Staples Center court, leaving the New Orleans guard with some missing chiclets: Check it out: Unbelievably, Gordon didn’t even come out of the game after that. He probably just wanted to show off his new smile. After the game, […]

    LeBron James Makes It Look Easy (Video)

    Just a flick of the wrists.  That’s all it takes for LeBron James to drain a meaningless shot from way outside the three-point line without even trying. Of course, these three points didn’t count, but LBJ managed to produce another 28 that did count (along with 10 rebounds, six assists, five steals and a block), […]
