  • Picture Of The Day: Is That Four-And-A-Half Coach?

    Picture Of The Day: Is That Four-And-A-Half Coach?

    Memphis Grizzlies head coach, Lionel Hollins, calls out play five late in a game between the Grizzlies and the Lakers, but his ring finger and pinkie fingers seem to prefer play three and a half.   My reaction to it was much like the women to Matt Walker’s broken finger during last year’s hockey playoffs. […]

  • Vince Carter Hits 86-Foot Shot Sitting Down (Video)

    Vince Carter Hits 86-Foot Shot Sitting Down (Video)

    I feel like this is the season of the trick shots in the NBA.  More and more we’re seeing clips of NBA players attempting trick shots during practice  – and, more impressively, they’re making them.   I guess it’s smart now to have your camera always rolling for the next miraculous shot. Off the top […]

  • Slam Dunk Contestant Runs Over Hot Chick (Video)

    Slam Dunk Contestant Runs Over Hot Chick (Video)

    A message to all those non-USA slam dunk contestants: you are probably doing it wrong. At least this guy was. Big time. Worst. Charge. Ever. This is all kinds of fail. How dare this guy wear the number 23! I’ve just received the translation of what he is saying and it goes like this: “Hello […]

  • Shaq Turned Down By Shakira (Video)

    Shaq Turned Down By Shakira (Video)

    Judging by their names, you would think Shaq and Shakira would make a perfect couple. The Cleveland Cavaliers center thought the same. Unfortunately, Shakira did not. The whole scenario took place on NBA All-Star Weekend, which also happened to fall on the same weekend as Valentine’s Day.  Shaq thought he’d take advantage of such perfect […]

    Cavs Zydrunas Ilgauskas is a MVPuppet with Lebron (Video)

    You have Lebron James, Kobe Bryant, and Dwight Howard as the existing muppets in Nike’s muppet series of commercials.  Who’s the likeliest candidate to bring in to the mix next? Zydrunas Ilgauskas? Probably the least likeliest, but he’s indeed been entered into the cast of the Nike MVPuppets.  In this clip, Lebron appears to be […]

  • LeBron James and Dwight Howard McDonald’s Commercial

    LeBron James and Dwight Howard McDonald’s Commercial

    Back in the day, Larry Bird and Michael Jordan went head to head for a Big Mac and fries. The acts of chomping down on Micky D’s and playing sports are polar opposites, but who cares — the commercial was “nothin’ but net.” We never even find out who won because neither Air Jordan or […]

  • LeBron James Teases Us With A Crazy Practice Dunk (Video)

    LeBron James Teases Us With A Crazy Practice Dunk (Video)

    It has become apparent by now that LeBron James will not be taking part in the upcoming NBA Slam Dunk Competition on All-Star Weekend in Dallas, Texas.  This news comes in light of the fact that James did tell us all last year on national television that he would take part in this year’s event.  […]

  • The Stat Line of the Night – 2/3/10 – Monta Ellis

    The Stat Line of the Night – 2/3/10 – Monta Ellis

    Total Pro Sports- The Golden State Warriors aren’t going to the playoffs. At 13-35 Warriors fans don’t have all that much to cheer about. Their best hope right now is that they are the last team standing during the NBA draft lottery, and they get to select Kentucky’s John Wall. But they definitely got a […]

    Kevin Harlan: JaMarcus Russell’s Bling Holding Back His Game

    It is one thing for professional athletes to go around sporting crazy amounts of jewelery, draped around their ears, wrists, and neck.  But when those players are as big of a bust as JaMarcus Russell, there becomes a cause for concern. That was the message delivered by TNT announcers Kevin Harlan and Doug Collins.  Simply […]

  • Teen Tasered During High School Basketball Game (Video)

    Teen Tasered During High School Basketball Game (Video)

    March Madness is right around the corner. Taser Madness? Now we have that, too. It must be a new high school initiative because the tasers were doing some big time zapping recently at a high school basketball game. When you watch this video you get the feeling that this won’t be the last time you’ll […]

  • Cheerleader Toss = Nothing But Net (GIF)

    Cheerleader Toss = Nothing But Net (GIF)

    Trick shots have become the new fad in basketball, thanks in large part to LeBron James and several other NBA stars.  James has shown that he is willing to try netting just about any type of ball from any distance.  As for draining a human?  Let’s leave that to these guys. So where does this […]

  • Hedo Turkoglu Thinks it’s Just The Ball (Video)

    Hedo Turkoglu Thinks it’s Just The Ball (Video)

    When Toronto signed Hedo Turkoglu over the summer they were expecting big things.  He was coming off two of his best seasons in the league (roughly 18 points per game) and coming to a Raptors team that needed someone to complement Chris Bosh.  At the very least, Turkoglu was supposed to put up similar numbers […]

    Greg Oden Is Sorry You Had To See His Elephant Trunk

    In case you have missed it, Portland Trail Blazers’ center Greg Oden has been making some noise in the media over the past couple of days, and he hasn’t even played a game since December 5, 2009. That is hardly ever a good thing, It surely is not in Oden’s case. It began when the […]

    Greg Oden Wants to Give You the Short Version of the Story

    Yes, everybody loves them some funny t-shirts — even Greg Oden of the Portland Trail Blazers.   Here’s a photo of Oden donning a “Long Story Short, I F*cked her” t-shirt, apparently taken on New Year’s Eve.   The photo was discovered on Facebook. Oden, just 22-years old now, is quickly becoming a fan-favorite amongst […]
