    9 Best Irish-American Athletes

    Tuesday is St. Patrick’s Day, a day when everybody in the world gets to feel a little bit Irish (and a lotta drunk). But of course there are some people who have a God-given right to feel a little bit more Irish than others because they actually are Irish. And within that group there are […]

    Young Spurs Fan Gives LeBron James the Double Bird (Video)

    The San Antonio Spurs may have beaten LeBron James and the Miami Heat in last year’s NBA Finals, but the Spurs fans still haven’t forgotten that it was James and the Heat who robbed them of an NBA Championship in 2013. Because of that, they still hate LeBron.  And when they hosted James and his […]

    This Horrible Shot Sums Up the Knicks-Lakers Game (Video)

    If you didn’t watch last night’s Knicks-Lakers game, consider yourself lucky.  You didn’t miss much.  Just some very bad basketball. How bad? This bad: That was Lakers forward Ryan Kelly’s only shot attempt of the evening, thank goodness.  He’d be a shoe-in for “worst shot of the year,” had it not been for the monstrosity of a hook […]

    Kyrie Irving Buzzer Beater Helps Cavs Beat Spurs in OT (Video)

    Kyrie Irving had himself quite the performance on Thursday.  Not only did he hit a buzzer-beating three-pointer at the end of regulation to send the game into overtime, but he’d also go on to finish the game with a career-high 57 points during the Cavs’ 128-125 victory over the defending champion San Antonio Spurs. The Spurs appeared […]

    Russell Westbrook Videobombed by Glen Davis Snot Rockets (Videos)

    Anyone watching the Clippers-Thunder game last night on ESPN saw something they really did not want to see—namely, a couple of truly nasty Glen Davis snot rockets. With about five minutes remaining in the first quarter, the producers cut to a nice closeup shot of OKC’s Russell Westbrook while the announcers gushed about how ridiculously […]

    The 15 Greatest NBA Face Masks of All Time

    Did you ever wonder who invented those freaky NBA face masks players where after they’ve broken a nose or an ortibal bone? Well, turns out it was an orthotist by the name of Gerald McHale. When Pistons star Bill Lambeer had his cheekbone shattered in 1990, the team asked McHale if he could come up […]

    Amazing Vintage Basketball Footage Shows What Game Was Like in the 1930s

    The Illinois High School Association has discovered some incredible vintage basketball footage shot during the Great Depression by Hall of Fame basketball coach and administrator H.V. Porter.

    Hornets Fan Takes Ball to the Face While on the Phone (Video)

    Number one rule when attending a sporting event?  Always keep an eye on the action.  Refusing to do so is the best way to increase your chances of getting hit in the face with a ball (or a puck, if you’re watching a hockey game). This Charlotte Hornets fan who was seated courtside for Wednesday’s […]

  • Andrea Bargnani Really Sucks at Defense (Video)

    Andrea Bargnani Really Sucks at Defense (Video)

    Andrea Bargnani is nowhere near the worst #1 NBA draft pick in recent memory, let alone of all time. The guy’s averaged 15 points and 5 rebounds per game in his nine-year NBA career, and his PER is just a hair under the league-average of 15. However, while Bargnani isn’t a completely useless player (usually), […]

    Bulls Fans Hold Vigil For Derrick Rose’s Knees (Photos)

    Poor Derrick Rose‘s knees.  They’ve been through so much over the past four seasons, including a torn ACL, and two separate tears of the meniscus. The latest meniscus tear has the Bulls guard sidelined until at least April, but it’s yet another sign reminding us all that Derrick Rose’s knees will never be the same. It’s […]
