    Blake Griffin Perfectly Sums Up the Clippers-Warriors Rivalry

    Will the Golden State Warriors ever lose another game?  It doesn’t look that way after they overcame a 23-point, first-half deficit to defeat the Los Angeles Clippers, 124-117, at the Staples Center last night, improving to 13-0 on the season.

    Dallas Mavericks Have Their Own “Hotline Bling” Parody (Video)

    The Dallas Mavericks have thrown their hat into the “Hotline Bling Parody” ring, and while they may be a week or two late, their entry is still worth paying attention to.  That’s mainly because it involves Dirk Nowitzki‘s head superimposed on Drake’s body, but also because it’s the first thing the Mavs have done in […]

    Steph Curry Hit Not One, But Two Ridiculous Three-Pointers (Videos)

    No shot is too difficult for Steph Curry.  The Warriors guard proved that much during Wednesday’s 100-84 road victory over the Memphis Grizzlies. A 29-foot, one-handed desperation heave while falling to the ground? No problem: How about a 40-foot pull-up jumper at the buzzer?  Also not a problem: Curry finished the game with 28 points, […]

    J.J. Watt Was About To Check In For The Houston Rockets (Video)

    With a record of 1-3 to start the season heading into tonight’s game against the Orlando Magic, the Houston Rockets could probably use the help of Texans defensive end J.J. Watt. And they nearly got it when Watt, who was in attendance at the Toyota Center, began to check himself into the game. Too bad he was only joking…

    Mavs Troll Clippers With DeAndre Jordan Animated Clip During Home Opener (Video)

    Are the Dallas Mavericks still sour about the way that whole DeAndre Jordan free agency fiasco worked out over the summer?  This video by Cleo Dog Productions titled “DeAndre Jordan is the Frightened Man-Boy”—which was played on the Mavs’ jumbotron prior to their home opener against the Raptors last night—should help answer that question: How @mcuban […]

    Nerlens Noel Fast-Break Turns Into Epic Fail (Video)

    Some people have a tough time doing two things at once, like Philadelphia 76ers center Nerlens Noel, who seems to have a tough time running and dribbling at the same time. That’s not a good thing when you’re a basketball player, like Noel is, as it may result in catastrophes like the one that unfolded […]
