    LeBron James Takes Selfie with Kids…During Cavs Game (Video + Pic)

    LeBron James takes selfie with kids? That’s something you’d expect to see before a game, or maybe at some sort of publicity event. You don’t expect to see that during a game. Of course, Wednesday night’s Cavaliers game wasn’t a real game. It was just a preseason game in Cincinnati. And since whatever happens in […]

    Vince Carter Gets Rejected by the Rim (Video)

    There once was a time when Vince Carter would soar several feet in the air, over the heads of opposing defenders, and throw down massive dunks.  Those days seem long-gone judging by this sad dunk attempt from V.C. during last night’s preseason contest between the Grizzlies and Rockets: When in doubt, blame the refs.

  • Blake Griffin Destroys Shot Clock with Pre-Game Warmup Dunk (Video)

    Blake Griffin Destroys Shot Clock with Pre-Game Warmup Dunk (Video)

    Blake Griffin is known for his powerful dunks. Based on what transpired before Sunday’s pre-season opener, I’d say Griffin is in mid-season dunking form. The Clippers traveled to Vancouver to take on the Raptors in the first game of the 2015 NBA pre-season. And during the pre-game shoot-around, while Griffin was practicing put-back dunks, he […]

  • Kobe Bryant Returns, And His First Shot Was Awful (Video)

    Kobe Bryant Returns, And His First Shot Was Awful (Video)

    For the first time since tearing the rotator cuff in his right shoulder back in January, Kobe Bryant stepped onto the court to take part in an NBA game, and the results were not pretty. Kobe started the game and played a total of 12 minutes, going 1-for-5 from the field for just five points, zero rebounds, […]

    Report Suggests Flip Saunders Cancer Treatment Not Going Well

    Back in August, the Minnesota Timberwolves announced that head coach and president of basketball operations Flip Saunders had been diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma, but planned to continue working while he underwent treatment. Unfortunately, Saunders suffered some sort of setback, and three weeks ago the T-Wolves announced he’d be taking a leave of absence. Hodgkin’s lymphoma […]

    Nets Owner Mikhail Prokhorov Was Putting On a Show For The Ages at Practice (Videos)

    If the Brooklyn Nets suddenly become contenders during this upcoming NBA season, it will probably have everything to do with Mikhail Prokhorov‘s dribbling drills, which were introduced to the team during Wednesday’s practice. Here’s a drill where the Nets owner does push-ups with his hands and feet on basketballs: Prokhorov doing push-ups with four basketballs […]

  • Now Shaq’s Getting Mimicked by the Internet’s BdotAdot5 (Video)

    Now Shaq’s Getting Mimicked by the Internet’s BdotAdot5 (Video)

    We’ve seen a number of NBA players get worked up by basketball impressionist BdotAdot5, but this new one he’s done of Shaq feels like the most cartoon-y of the bunch. I never thought of Shaq as a particularly spastic guy on the court, but it appears that’s the way BdotAdot5 (such a catchy user handle) […]

    Derrick Rose Injured Again…But at Least It’s Not His Knee!

    If you’re a Bulls fan, I’ve got good news and bad news. The good? Derrick Rose‘s knees are 100% healthy. The bad? Derrick Rose’s orbital bone is not. Rose took an elbow to the face during the first practice of Bulls training camp on Tuesday. In the immediate aftermath nobody sounded too concerned. Power forward […]
