  • Aaron Gordon Keeps Slamming Like He’s Still in the Dunk Contest

    Aaron Gordon Keeps Slamming Like He’s Still in the Dunk Contest

    Aaron Gordon may not have won what may have been the greatest dunk contest of all time in Toronto, so he’s still out to prove that he’s the best in the game. And he’s doing it by treating in-game moments like a continuation of the contest. I mean, who else would bust out a windmill […]

  • Vince Carter and Kobe Bryant Shared Some Words After Their Game (Video)

    Vince Carter and Kobe Bryant Shared Some Words After Their Game (Video)

    Memphis was the most recent stop on the Kobe Bryant farewell tour, and though Vince Carter might not seem like a contemporary of Kobe these days, there was a time when the two were vying together for superstardom in the NBA, with Kobe leading the Lakers while Vince Carter was being anointed the league’s next high-flying dunk […]

    Dirk Nowitzki Hits Game-Winner vs. Lakers, Gets Props from Kobe (Video)

    During his nation-wide farewell tour, we’ve seen a side of Kobe Bryant that has been dormant (or at least hidden), as he’s acted like a human being, rather than some programmed competition machine. For instance, in all the years he played, would you have ever expected him to congratulate an opponent on a shot DURING […]

    The basketball world is still coming to terms with the unexpected (and sudden) news that Flip Saunders had passed away from Hodgkins lymphoma over the weekend. His presence in the NBA was a constant, and teams all over the league have shown their admiration and love for the coach. The Lakers took to the court last […]

    Nick Young Celebrates Buzzer-Beater with an Airplane Impression (Video)

    The Lakers squared off against the Timberwolves last night, and as the first quarter came to a close, Nick Young hit a pretty ridiculous running three from just past the half-court line. Even before the ball passed through the net, Swaggy P prepared himself for success. And after the ball DID fall through the net, […]

  • 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 […]

    Here’s the Point That Let Kobe Pass MJ on the All-Time Scoring List (Videos)

    Over the weekend, a bucket fell that let Kobe pass MJ on the NBA’s all-time scorers list, putting the beleaguered Laker in the #3 position in history, behind Kareem Abdul-Jabaar and Karl “The Mailman” Malone. The news story was a refreshing departure from a parade of passive-aggressive and regular-aggressive behavior from the Lakers star as […]

  • Kobe Bryant Cusses Out Teammates and GM Mitch Kupchak in Practice (Video)

    Kobe Bryant Cusses Out Teammates and GM Mitch Kupchak in Practice (Video)

    Kobe Bryant cusses a lot. He’s been documented doing it at opposing players (Dwight Howard), and he’s been caught doing it to his own teammates. But apparently he’s evolved even further into a curmudgeonly, past-his-prime player, because in this video, he’s doing it at his own GM, regarding his teammates. What a leader. In this video, […]
