  • Markel Brown RSVPs To Next Year’s Dunk Contest with a 360 Jam (Video)

    Markel Brown RSVPs To Next Year’s Dunk Contest with a 360 Jam (Video)

    The name Markel Brown might not resonate with anyone other than hardcore Nets fans, but the 6’3″ guard averaging just 3 PPG and shooting just 36% from the field may find another way to enter our hearts: With sick jams. In last night’s game against the Pelicans, Markel Brown tipped a pass for a fastbreak, […]

  • Purdue’s Jon Octeus Brings the Thunder Down on Indiana (Video)

    Purdue’s Jon Octeus Brings the Thunder Down on Indiana (Video)

    Jon Octeus of Purdue may not be an NBA player (yet?), but this monster dunk definitely outperforms the ranks of college basketball. This play doesn’t lend itself to TOO much analysis, but that doesn’t mean it’s not plenty fun to watch. The Octe-gon (my new nickname for him), drives, pulls back, and releases with the […]

  • DeAndre Jordan Presented a Dunking Saga vs. the Spurs Last Night (Videos)

    DeAndre Jordan Presented a Dunking Saga vs. the Spurs Last Night (Videos)

    Let’s go through the steps and follow this story. Try to keep up if you can. First, DeAndre Jordan tried to dunk over Tim Duncan. Duncan’s not exactly the most spry defender, but he was able to stand his ground and…not much else. Duncan sorta just stood there with that deer-in-the-headlights look. DeAndre Jordan just […]

  • Russell Westbrook Hits Head on Backboard During All-Star Game (Video)

    Russell Westbrook Hits Head on Backboard During All-Star Game (Video)

    Russell Westbrook earned his first NBA All-Star Game MVP by scoring 41 points during a 163-158 Western Conference victory.  It was an impressive performance from the Oklahoma City Thunder guard that was highlighted by this high-flying alley-oop from Chris Paul, which caused him to hit the top of his head on the backboard. Westbrook was seen […]

  • Willie Cauley-Stein Dunks All Over LSU’s Jordan Mickey (Video)

    Willie Cauley-Stein Dunks All Over LSU’s Jordan Mickey (Video)

    Kentucky’s Willie Cauley-Stein like to dunk on people (see: this dunk from Saturday).  I’m guessing the guy’s dorm room walls are covered in posters of him dunking on other players.  But if he has room for one more, he’s going to want to add the poster he made with the help of LSU’s Jordan Mickey on […]

  • High School Basketball Coach Commits Hilarious Pep Rally Fail (Video)

    High School Basketball Coach Commits Hilarious Pep Rally Fail (Video)

    Having the assistant coach of the boys basketball team throw down an alley-oop slam over a student is a good way to get the students at your school revved up for the team’s pep rally.  Having that same assistant coach miss the alley-oop and shatter the backboard in the process is an even better way […]

  • Odell Beckham Jr. Starts the Offseason with a LeBron Impression (Video)

    Odell Beckham Jr. Starts the Offseason with a LeBron Impression (Video)

    Odell Beckham Jr. isn’t the first guy to give the world a LeBron impression, but he is one of the few non-basketball players who can back the impression up with a pretty strong dunk. I think King James would approve of both the dunk and the high-stepping afterwards. Plus, who doesn’t like Odell Beckham? The man’s […]

  • Internet Freaks Over First Kyle Korver Dunk in Two Years (Video + Pics)

    Internet Freaks Over First Kyle Korver Dunk in Two Years (Video + Pics)

    How can you tell the Atlanta Hawks are now a legit NBA contender? Well, you could look at the standings, yes. But you could also look at the fact that, last night, the internet went nuts over a Kyle Korver dunk. The Hawks haven’t seen this level of team awareness in basketball literati since…well, probably […]

  • Ronnie Price Open Dunk Goes Horribly, Horribly Wrong (Video)

    Ronnie Price Open Dunk Goes Horribly, Horribly Wrong (Video)

    If you’re searching for a play that represents the Lakers’ season, this Ronnie Price dunk might do the trick. But don’t read TOO much into it. If you’re going deep enough with the symbolism to see a suggestion that the Lakers are screwing up a sure thing this season, you’ve gone too far. Basically, the […]

  • Andre Miller Putback Gets Denied by the Rim (Video)

    Andre Miller Putback Gets Denied by the Rim (Video)

    It’s a shame this Andre Miller putback went the way it did. If he had thrown that down, we’d be celebrating, but instead, we’re mourning this Andre Miller putback. Sure, it’s a little funny, but it’s a little unfortunate, too. He got flat-out denied by the rim on what would have otherwise been a very […]

    This Jeff Teague Dunk Defies the Laws of Gravity (Video)

    We saw two astounding things in Atlanta on Tuesday night. One was a Lakers win, which was just their second of the season. The other was a fantastic Jeff Teague dunk that defied the laws of gravity. We’re not going to talk about the Lakers win, of course, because talking about the Lakers just makes […]
