    Paul George Dunks for First Time Since His Leg Broke in Half (Video)

    It’s usually not a big deal when a 6’9″ professional basketball player dunks a basketball at practice.

    Be warned: just watching this Cliff Alexander dunk might leave you feeling feeble and broken and ashamed. That’s almost certainly how it left Oklahoma State’s Le’Bryan Nash and Anthony Allen.

    Jeremy Lin will soon be attending Lakers summer practices, having been run out of Houston in a pseudo-bid for Chris Bosh. However, school’s still out, and, appropriately, Jeremy Lin is spending his summer like a bored teenager: hanging out with his dumb friends and doing stupid things on camera.

    Sports are great, but they sometimes fall short of capturing the wonders of our national imagination in the kind of vivid detail that a good painting can. Take, for instance, the sentiment expressed in this painting from a Reddit user: even if the United States were to play basketball against a North Korean team, it’s […]
