    This Day In Sports History (January 7th) — Los Angeles Lakers

    It was on this day in 1972 that the Los Angeles Lakers defeated the Atlanta Hawks 134-90 for their 33rd straight win.  Their winning streak began over two months earlier with a win over the Baltimore Bullets. The 1971-72 Los Angeles Lakers are considered one of the greatest teams in NBA history, led by Wilt […]

    Watch J.R. Smith Untie Shawn Marion’s Shoelace (Video)

    Apparently New York Knicks sh*tdistruber J.R. Smith is tired of Andrea Bargnani getting all the attention these days with his terrible basketball playing. So last night against the Maverick in Dallas, he upped his game a bit. Of course, by “upped his game a bit,” I do not actually mean J.R. Smith tried harder to […]

    This Day In Sports History (January 6th) — Lenny Wilkens

    It was on this day in 1995 that Atlanta Hawks head coach Lenny Wilkens recorded his 939th career victory.  Wilkens broke the record that was previously held by legendary Boston Celtics coach Red Auerbach. At the time of his retirement, Wilkens was the all-time leader in both wins and losses as a head coach in […]

    Let’s All Watch Andrea Bargnani Be Terrible…Again (GIF)

    A few weeks ago I wrote a few posts about the New York Knicks and how they are really, really bad. The second of those posts focused on Andrea Bargnani, and at the end I suggested we should start an ongoing series of posts called “Why the Knicks Suck.” Well, guess who stars in this […]

    Stat Line of the Night — 12/23/2013 — Tyreke Evans

    Tyreke Evans spent the first three years of his NBA career in Sacramento, but after departing for New Orleans during the off-season, he made his return to the place he used to call home when the Kings hosted the Pelicans at Sleep Train Arena last night. And what a return it was for Evans. Coming […]

  • NBA Referee Gets Taken Out by a Flagrant Flop (Video)

    NBA Referee Gets Taken Out by a Flagrant Flop (Video)

    Let me just start by saying they have some classy fans in Oklahoma City. Last night, one of the referees for the game between the Thunder and Bulls got taken out and hit the floor pretty hard. However, instead of cheering—which you would expect in places like Chicago or Philadelphia—the Thunder fans reacted in horror, […]

    Last night, San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich kept his three best players out of the lineup against the Golden State Warriors in a nationally televised game that could be a preview of a future playoff matchup. Why? Well, he was probably just trying to piss off David Stern, who fined him $250,000 last year […]

    As a head coach of an NBA basketball team, you’re always expected to be focused on the game.  But sometimes all of that focus may cause you to take your eyes off the ball and place them on another area of the court that requires your attention.  That must have been the case last night […]

    Michael Jordan’s “Flu Game” Shoes Sell For Record Price

    On June 11, 1997, Michael Jordan put up 38 points, seven rebounds, five assists, three steals, and one block while battling a serious stomach virus to help the Chicago Bulls defeat the Utah Jazz in Game 5 of the NBA Finals.  Following that epic game, which has become known as “the Flu Game,” Jordan gave […]

    Ricky Rubio Nutmegs Nicolas Batum (Video + GIF)

    When Ricky Rubio is on the floor, you literally have to expect the ball to go anywhere at any time. The guy’s vision and his passing ability are that good. Unfortunately for Portland’s Nicolas Batum, last night he was not expecting this. The red hot Blazers, winners of five straight, were in Minnesota to take […]

  • Stat Line of the Night – 12/18/2013 – Kevin Love

    Stat Line of the Night – 12/18/2013 – Kevin Love

    Few teams have been able to stop the Portland Trail Blazers this season, and the same can probably be said about Minnesota Timberwolves forward Kevin Love.  Well last night, these two unstoppable forces squared off and it was the former who couldn’t slow down the latter on this occasion. Love was once again in MVP […]
