  • 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.  […]

  • 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

    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 […]

    ‘Big Baby’ Davis Fined for Yelling Obscenity at Fan (Video)

    Glen Davis lived up to his moniker “Big Baby” on Wednesday night in Boston’s game against the Detroit Pistons at The Palace of Auburn Hills.  Throughout the course of the game a Detroit fan berated him with insults, mostly ‘fat boy’ and ‘chubs,’ and finally it got to Big Baby’s big ol’ rabbit ears and […]

  • Giddiest Kid Ever Really Loves Basketball (Video)

    Giddiest Kid Ever Really Loves Basketball (Video)

    Meet Adam. He’s got that joy, joy, joy down in his heart. Also, he may have been over-medicated at some point through out the day. For all we know, he could be on some sort of happy steroid. Whatever it is, if you don’t like this kid you’re worse than a baseball manager that punches […]

  • Kobe and Brandi Prom Picture Selling on Craigslist

    Kobe and Brandi Prom Picture Selling on Craigslist

    There’s quality paraphernalia and there’s pointless pictures.  A picture of Kobe Bryant with his high school prom date, who just happens to be Brandi, definitely falls under the latter. Some guy in Philadelphia is selling an original prom picture of Kobe Bryant and Bryant’s date for a minimum of $3,000 on Craigslist, with the best offer […]

  • Shawn Kemp Reigns Photo Ops

    Shawn Kemp Reigns Photo Ops

    If you’re at a trendy little bar in Seattle with your friends and you want to take some classy pictures, you will probably want to ask Shawn Kemp to stay out of the photos, or at least want to ask him to take them for you instead of joining in.   Otherwise, it could get […]

  • Felony Not Funny; Gilbert Arenas Reaches Guilty Plea Deal

    Felony Not Funny; Gilbert Arenas Reaches Guilty Plea Deal

    If there’s ever been a more bizarre NBA story in recent memory, I don’t know what it is.  The evolution of the Gilbert Arenas gun story was almost as ridiculous as the story itself.  What started as a random NBA investigation into Arenas having guns in the locker room, simply because he didn’t want them […]
