    Murray State Buzzer Beater Over Vandy Caps An Impressive Opening Day

    March Madness is upon us, and after only one day of action, it has already made a statement with three overtime games, a few buzzer beaters, some unbelievable upsets, and the Jimmer Fredette show.  If day one is any indication, we may be in for one of the greatest NCAA March Madness tournaments ever. But […]

    Obama’s Bracket Has Kansas Taking The Title (w/Video)

    With the beginning of the NCAA March Madness Tournament set to kick off tomorrow, everyone is rushing to get their final brackets in.  It can take some time figuring out which teams will be able to pull off the upset, and which top-ranked teams will put together a good run.  Analyzing a bracket can be […]

    Steve Nash Gives Robin Lopez His Balls Talk (Video)

    I’ve always been a big fan of Steve Nash.  I used to play point guard for an AAU team and had long hair just like him.  Unfortunately, I wasn’t good enough for people to catch on to the slight similarities in looks and call me Steve Nash, but I still liked him nonetheless.  My affinity […]

  • Picture of the Day: Homework before Hoops

    Picture of the Day: Homework before Hoops

    Here’s “The Club” preventing a young one from playing hoops, unless he invests in a smaller ball.  His successful looking daddy, is telling his son that he’ll just have to settle for the books (or extreme street sports).  “The Club,” is usually used to prevent car thievery, but here it’s sending a different message — […]

    Inflatable Mascot Eats ESPN’s Michelle Beadle (Video)

    What is with all of these inflatable mascots eating people?  Could we be going to war with these creature who were once a  sports fan’s most beloved companion? Yesterday on ESPN’s SportsNation, Michelle Beadle attempted to lay down the law against Mackerel Jordan, the giant inflatable fish who sports the jersey of his similarly named […]

  • High School Baller Uses Opponent’s Head To Make A Basket

    High School Baller Uses Opponent’s Head To Make A Basket

    Sure Dwight Howard and LeBron James were making some rather incredible shots during their battle over a Big Mac and fries, but let’s see them try this… From behind the net, throw the ball off the backboard, of your opponent’s head, and into the basket, hitting nothing but net!  Oh, and all while you are […]

  • 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)

    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)

    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.  […]
