  • 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)

    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 […]

    LA Lakers Douchebag Fan (GIF)

    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 […]

  • Crazy Drunk Greek Fan Climbs on Basket During Game (Video)

    Crazy Drunk Greek Fan Climbs on Basket During Game (Video)

    You gotta believe that for this goofy hoops fan there was some Ouzo chugging going down in the car on the way to the arena. That guy is the biggest basketball fan in all of Greece. Or the drunkest. Or both. I checked with one of my Greek friends to get a translation of what […]

  • 2 Wild Deer Break Into Wisconsin Bar During Bucks Game (Videos)

    2 Wild Deer Break Into Wisconsin Bar During Bucks Game (Videos)

    So two deer walk into a bar… Seriously, two deer walked into a bar in during game 7 of the Milwaukee Bucks vs. Atlanta Hawks series. Here’s the bad news: neither the real deer nor the basketball Bucks fared very well in their battles. One of the deer was all bloodied up and both were […]

  • Picture Of The Day: Nike Air Burger…Would You Eat It?

    Picture Of The Day: Nike Air Burger…Would You Eat It?

    I can picture it already.  As Usain Bolt crosses the finish line, breaking yet another world record, the reporters rush to hear what he has to say.  The first question asked of the speedy Jamaican is “What do you have to say about your latest accomplishment?”  That is when Bolt replies, “I would just like […]

  • Euroleague Hoops Team Wins…Then Loses In A Wild Finish

    Euroleague Hoops Team Wins…Then Loses In A Wild Finish

    European basketball player’s skills: Excellent passing? Check. Long-distance shooting? Check. Good ball-handling? Check. Clock management? Not so much. Seriously — this would never, ever happen in the NBA. You have coaches that call timeouts with 0.2 ticks left to devise a tip play or to draw up a defense against that tip. I just hope […]

  • Charles Barkley Loves Blondes, Hates “Assholes” (Video)

    Charles Barkley Loves Blondes, Hates “Assholes” (Video)

    The power of Charles Barkley is really quite amazing.  Sure, the guy has his problems, which include a terrible golf swing and a knack for drinking and driving, but the former NBA All-Star and Hall of Famer has single-handedly made TNT’s basketball coverage “Must See TV.” His on-air hi-jinks always seem to provide viewers with […]
