  • 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

    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 […]

  • Dunk Fail: Jumping Over 4 Hot Chicks (Video)

    Dunk Fail: Jumping Over 4 Hot Chicks (Video)

    These 4 lovely, young ladies should have just said no when this dude asked them to be a part of his epic dunk attempt. Not only does he almost snap the neck of the last chick, but those awful, enormous shorts he’s wearing probably smacked her face so hard that’s what made her tumble. The […]

  • Amateur Freestyler Sings A LeBron James Rap (Video)

    Amateur Freestyler Sings A LeBron James Rap (Video)

    Suddenly, Kobe Bryant is no longer the only NBA player with a song named after him, thanks to this dude. What this freestyler lacks in talent, he makes up for in……ummmm….courage?  I guess that is a fair statement when you consider the fact that even though he is terrible, he still had the balls to […]

  • Picture Of The Day: Just Wear It!

    Picture Of The Day: Just Wear It!

    Here’s an interesting, never seen before (by me) advertisement soliciting people to wrap their tools.  Before slam dunking your ball(s) in to the (basketball) hole(s), be sure to slip on some protection because those dunks can sometimes be back(board) breakers.  If you’re going to do as Nike tells you and ‘Just Do It,’ then you […]

  • High School Dunker Shatters Backboard (Video)

    High School Dunker Shatters Backboard (Video)

    Somebody call maintenance. Actually, someone call another school because someone just threw down a monster jam and completely destroyed the backboard. I guess white men can jump, eh? At least this one can. His name is Nate VanArendonk and he plays for Grand Haven High School in Michigan. Maybe he should change his name to […]

  • Knicks Cheerleaders As Bad As Their Team (Video)

    Knicks Cheerleaders As Bad As Their Team (Video)

    When it comes to cheerleading, looks may be important, but they are not everything.  After all, not even a curvy body and beautiful face can hide an obvious mishap from the fans, which is rather unfortunate for this Knicks cheerleader. It appears as though the Knicks dance squad has been using similar scouting/recruiting techniques as […]

  • Picture Of the Day: The Glory Days

    Picture Of the Day: The Glory Days

    One city was completely united by its basketball team for 6 years.  In Chicago, there are a lot of divisions.  North Side vs. South Side, downtown vs. the neighborhoods, racial tensions, etc.  Between 1990 and 1998, that all seemed to disappear every October and the harmony lasted well into June.  It was the local professional […]

  • Trampoline Dunk Shatters The Backboard (Video)

    Trampoline Dunk Shatters The Backboard (Video)

    There is something about the combination of a trampoline and a basketball net that is irresistible.  It takes me back to my days in elementary school, when I used to dream about dunking on the gymnasium nets.  Of course, it was just a dream, as doing so would be impossible, unless of course I had […]
