    Bryce Cotton, 6’1″, Threw Down a Jaw-Dropping Alley-Oop (Video)

    A good rule of thumb is, “The smaller the player, the better the dunk.” And while you may see short guys get away with a few fast break dunks, you don’t normally see them throw down in heavy traffic. And you certainly don’t see them do it on an alley-oop… …Unless you were watching Bryce […]

    If you care at all about the Chinese Basketball Association, you’re probably already aware of the fact that the Beijing Ducks are currently taking on the Liaoning Flying Leopards in the CBA finals. (The series is tied, 2-2.) As for those who haven’t been keeping up with the Chinese Basketball Association’s playoffs, we’ve got you […]

    Masked Russell Westbrook Is Still Pretty Amazing (Video)

    After sustaining a dent in the side of his head last Friday, Russell Westbrook sat out Sunday’s game agains the Lakers, and he was forced to play Wednesday’s contest against the Philadelphia 76ers with a mask on.  That didn’t seem to slow him down one bit. Masked Russell Westbrook still managed to record his fourth consecutive […]

    DeMar DeRozan Attempts 360 Dunk vs. Knicks, Misses (Video)

    This botched 360 dunk by DeMar DeRozan during last night’s game was so bad, you’d almost think he was playing FOR the Knicks. As it happens, he was playing AGAINST the Knicks, which makes it that much more embarrassing.  And as if that wasn’t already enough, the Raptors would go on to lose the game […]

    The Louisville Cardinals improved to 23-6 overall and 11-5 in the ACC following an 81-59 victory over the Florida State Seminoles earlier today.  It was a dominating effort for the Cards that was highlighted by this ridiculous alley-oop from 6’8″ forward Montrezl Harrell.

    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)

    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)

    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 […]
