    Ty Lawson Hit His First 10 Three-Pointers Saturday Night (Video)

    During Saturday night’s game against the Minnesota Timberwolves, Ty Lawson became the first player in NBA history to hit his first ten three-point attempts in a game.  The former Tar Heel was unstoppable, and was only one three-pointer away from setting an NBA record for most three-pointers made without a miss, until he went for […]

    Asian Kid Shoots Hoops at Record Speeds (Video)

    Basketball is nowhere as big a sport in Taiwan as it is in the United States. Instead of shooting hoops in a court with a real basketball, many players in Japan have relegated themselves to shooting hoops at a local arcade. The “sport” has become something of a national pastime for the Taiwanese. A video […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 4/7/11 — Derrick Rose

    While the Chicago Bulls couldn’t officially clinch top spot in the Eastern Conference, they could make it as close as possible to a sure thing with a win over the Boston Celtics at the United Center last night.  No only would they get that win, but they would do so in a rather impressive fashion, […]

    Tough Defense (GIF)

    It appears as though soccer isn’t the only sport with a flying kung-fu kick problem.  Basketball is apparently undergoing similar issues, as is evident in the image above. Upon first glance, a kick to the face may seem like a great way to defend the three-ball, but it is probably also a great way to […]

    Picture Of The Day: How Is Magic Johnson Still Alive?

    “How is Magic Johnson still alive?”  “How is Magic Johnson not dead?”  Is this really the type of garbage that people search for on the internet these days?  How about looking up the actual effects of the HIV virus and ways that it can be prevented from becoming AIDS.  You will probably find the answer […]

    Picture Of The Day: Trying Hard Not To Stare

    Have you ever seen someone trying so hard not to stare? A part of me is actually quite impressed with Jimmy Fallon’s discipline, although, another part of me can’t help but wonder why the former Saturday Night Live star is so adamant about avoiding eye contact with the sexy cheerleaders.  Sure, he may already be […]

    Dominique Wilkins Was Attacked By An Ex-Ref Last Night (Fight Video)

    The Atlanta Hawks’ players weren’t the only ones putting up a strong fight at Philips Arena last night.  Hall of Famer and Hawks color analyst Dominique Wilkins was also doing some fighting of his own, although his opponent would be ex-referee Rashan S. Michel, rather than the Orlando Magic. Michel stuck around following the Hawks’ […]

    Picture Of The Day: Desperate Times

    They say that desperate times call for desperate measures.  So with both the Minnesota Timberwolves desperate to put more butts in the seats and Butter Kernel desperate to sell their canned vegetables, the two decided to team up for a campaign that will award two tickets to a T-Wolves game to anyone who purchases four […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 3/29/11 — Kevin Durant

    With only nine games remaining in their season, the Oklahoma City Thunder appear to be peaking at the right time.  They entered their game against the Golden State Warriors last night on a three-game winning streak and winners of nine of their last ten.  Thanks to a solid performance from their all-star, Kevin Durant, they […]

    Dunk FAIL! Spinal Cord Injury? (Video)

    Perhaps one day this kid will be able to soar through the air and dunk over a car like Blake Griffin, assuming that he didn’t sustain a serious spinal cord injury during this dunk attempt. When will these young kids learn that jumping off a friend’s back while attempting to throw down a basketball never […]
