  • This Day In Sports History (December 14th) – Miami Heat

    This Day In Sports History (December 14th) – Miami Heat

    It was on this day in 1988 that the Miami Heat won their first regular season game in franchise history. The Heat defeated the Los Angeles Clippers 89-88 in a game played at the Los Angeles Memorial Sports Arena. The Miami Heat were not expected to have much success in their inaugural season, but no […]

    Stat Line of the Night — 12/13/2012 — Damian Lillard

    Beating the San Antonio Spurs is no easy task, but the Portland Trail Blazers made it look pretty simple last night, thanks in large part to play of their rookie sensation, Damian Lillard. The 2012 sixth-overall draft pick entered Thursday’s contest leading all NBA rookies in points per game, and he increased that gap by […]

    Female Celtics Fan Makes Dirty Gesture for TV Camera (Video)

    For some reason, there are a lot of idiots who like to make obscene gestures at sporting events when they discover that the camera is on them. I’m not really sure why, since so many of these inappropriate moments are captured and widely disseminated all over the interwebs, embarrassing their mothers and getting them fired […]

    Stat Line of the Night — 12/12/2012 — Kevin Durant

    The Oklahoma City Thunder entered last night’s game against the New Orleans Hornets with an eight-game winning streak, and they would leave last night’s contest with a nine-game winning streak, thanks in large part to Kevin Durant’s production at the offensive end. The NBA’s leading scorer last season torched the Hornets’ defense for a game-high […]

    Stat Line of the Night — 12/11/2012 — Carmelo Anthony

    Heading into the 2012-13 NBA season, many believed that the New York Knicks were too old, but at this point their age doesn’t seem to be stopping them from piling up the wins.  And they added another last night, thanks to some fine work from their 28-year-old all-star, Carmelo Anthony. There were moments throughout the […]

    Watch This Referee Give the Miami Heat a Helping Hand (Video)

    Maybe Mark Cuban is right after all. I always thought the Mavericks owner was just a hotheaded loudmouth spouting ridiculous conspiracy theories about how refs fix NBA games for certain teams. But I now have to admit that, after seeing the following play, at the very least I can kind of see where the guy […]

    Raptors’ Amir Johnson Gets Ejected, Throws Mouthpiece at the Ref (Video)

    Things have not been going well for the Toronto Raptors.  They are 4-18 to start the season, they are an abysmal 1-14 on the road , and they are currently in the midst of a five-game losing streak.  Sure, their expectations weren’t exactly sky-high heading into the season, but with the off-season acquisitions of Kyle Lowry and […]

    Rasheed Wallace Does The Discount Double Check (Video)

    Rasheed Wallace tends to run his mouth an awful lot on the court, but during last night’s nationally televised battle against the Miami Heat, the New York Knicks forward was letting his game do the talking. Sheed was only on the floor for 14 minutes, but he made the most of his playing time, recording […]

    Ukrainian composer Mykola Leontovych’s most famous work, “Shchedryk,” has been covered hundreds of times by everyone from Kenny Rogers, to John Tesh, to Destiny’s Child, to legendary motion picture composer John Williams. Now it’s been covered by a quintet of the NBA’s biggest superstars. Of course, you probably know “Shchedryk” better by its English name—the […]

  • Eric Bledsoe’s Back-To-Back Alley-Oops Made Mark Cuban Sad (Video)

    Eric Bledsoe’s Back-To-Back Alley-Oops Made Mark Cuban Sad (Video)

    In all likelihood, Mark Cuban was probably pretty sad well before Eric Bledsoe finished off back-to-back alley-oop passes from Jamal Crawford last night.  After all, his Dallas Mavericks were already trailing the Los Angeles Clippers by 20 at that point, and they were on the verge of earning their fourth loss in their last five games. But […]
