    9 Vintage Basketball Sneakers

    Few things get twenty and thirty-somethings more fired up about their youth than sports and fashion. This affinity explains the recent spike in interest in the throwback jersey and shoe, and nowhere is that more clear than in the realm of basketball. It seems as though many sneaker aficionados are more interested in reissues from […]

    The World’s Farthest Basketball Shot (Video)

    We’ve seen a lot of circus basketball shots in the past year or so. They’re all the rave on the internet these days. Less than a month ago, a video of Jeremy Piven nailing a shot from a ledge made its way around the interwebs. And I don’t know if trick shots get any better […]

    LeBron James Billboard Diss (PIC)

    LeBron James might have taken his talents to South Beach, but in doing so he alienated and angered most of the country, basketball legends and most importantly his hometown of Akron, Ohio. An Akron marketing firm went ahead and purchased this dissing billboard to let LeBron know — as if he didn’t already — how […]

    Footage Of Tyreke Evans Speeding Released By Police

    For Tyreke Evans, living life in the fast lane is not just a figure of speech.  This past Memorial Day weekend, it was a reality as the Sacramento Kings point guard raced along a California highway in his purple Mercedes at estimated speeds of up to 130 miles per hour. Evans was eventually stopped by […]

    Awesome Basketball Trick-Shot (GIF)

    Take a basketball, add a trampoline, throw in a front-flip and a 75-foot heave and there you have it!  Perhaps the greatest basketball trick shot ever recorded. Dude Perfect has given us many awe-inspiring clips, whether it is his “World’s Longests Basketball Shot” or the more innovative “Donut Shot.” But this time he took things […]

    Carlos Arroyo Slaps Opposing Player (Video)

    What did the five fingers say to the face? Miami Heat guard Carlos Arroyo asked and then answered that for an opposing player Sunday in Puerto Rico’s matchup against Mexico in the Central American and Caribbean Games. That right there is the “I’d really rather haul off and deck you but I don’t want to […]

    Dallas Digs Dirk, And They Have A Music Video To Prove It

    With many of the NBA’s biggest superstars packing their bags and heading to a new destination this summer, the fans of the Dallas Mavericks feared that the same would happen to their All-Star center, Dirk Nowitzki.  Fortunately for them, the highly-touted free agent decided to stay with the Mavs after signing a four-year, $80-million deal […]

    A user by the name of brockweaver over at reddit.com posted this gruesome image.  It shows post operation on his ruptured Achilles.  He goes on to tell the story how this injury occurred, I completely ruptured my right achilles while playing old man basketball over the noon hour. Had to drive my stick shift home […]

    Really Lebron?? Is THIS what it has come to? (PIC)

    Really, Lebron?? Is THIS what it has come to?  I guess it has come to this.  Pretty sad if you ask me. I don’t recall Michael Jordan or Larry Bird ever doing this at the end of a contract year. Maybe times have changed? I got an idea; how about worrying about playing ball and […]

    Chicago To LeBron: We Dare You To Play For Us

    Several of the NBA’s teams are doing whatever they can to get this year’s most coveted free agent, LeBron James, to sign with them.  But while the likes of Cleveland, New York and New Jersey are using celebrities in an attempt to lure King James to their city, the Bull have taken somewhat of a […]

    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 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 […]
