    It was on this day in 1988 that former NBA great Pete Maravich passed away.

    15 NBA WAGs Hotter Than Savannah Brinson

    LeBron James announced a few days ago that he’s getting hitched to his longtime-girlfriend, Savannah Brinson. BronBron is far from my favorite NBA player on the court, but whatever, best of luck to them and congrats. NBA wives and girlfriends, despite the popular reality show, don’t get much attention lavished on them. That stops now. Savannah […]

    The lockout was bound to negatively affect the conditioning of some NBA players.  Dallas Mavericks forward Sean Williams is one of those players, as he could only manage to stay on the floor for 11:06 during last night’s game against the Denver Nuggets before retreating to the bench and losing his lunch on the court […]

    Watch Santa Claus Heckle LeBron James (Video)

    Many people hate LeBron James, and it appears as though Jolly Old Saint Nicholas is among them.

    Jeremy Evans Gives Us The Best Dunk From The NBA Pre-Season (Video)

    If I asked you to guess who would throw down the sickest dunk of the 2011 NBA preseason, chances are you would probably go with someone along the lines of LeBron James or Blake Griffin.  One name you probably wouldn’t think about throwing out there is Jeremy Evans.  After all, prior to this post you […]

    9 Reasons Why People Don’t Like NBA Commissioner David Stern

    Doesn’t it seem like whenever something weird happens in the NBA, commissioner David Stern has a hand in it? This week it was the Chris Paul trade fiasco, and just a few weeks before that it was the completely unnecessary NBA lockout. It just seems like the man can’t go more than a couple of years without getting […]

    It appears as though Ron Artest Metta World Peace has lost his marbles once again. The last time this happened he changed his name to those three words that many of us are still trying to make sense of.  This time around he is going off topic during interviews, talking about how kind and brilliant […]

    Picture Of The Day: What You Lookin’ At Rajon?

    It can be tough being one of the shorter players in the NBA.  Just as Boston Celtics guard Rajon Rondo, who at 6’1″ was forced to look up to a 6’8″ LeBron James in the above image.  But as tough as it may be, it isn’t all bad for Rondo.  Being short allows him to […]

    This Day In Sports History (December 8th) – Charles Barkley

    It was on this day in 1999 that Houston Rockets forward Charles Barkley ruptured his left quadriceps tendon.  The injury occurred in Philadelphia, where Barkley’s career began 15 years earlier.

    9 Most Unlikely Pro Sports Cities

    For pro sports teams to succeed these days, they need more than a loyal fanbase. If that was all that was needed, there wouldn’t be so many defunct pro sports teams. Instead, what pro teams really need under today’s business model is corporate sponsorship and media revenue. Without those two things, teams are going to […]

    Picture Of The Day: I’ll Take A Six-Inch Assorted Mr. Griffin

    With the NBA lockout now officially over, it appears as though Blake Griffin can quit his job at Subway and return to the hard-court, where we expect him to continue where he left off last season when he provided us with high-flying dunk after high-flying dunk as a rookie. That may be good news to […]

    15 Highest NBA Salaries For The 2011-12 Season

    Now that we’re actually going to have a 2011-12 NBA season, I thought it would be fun to whip up a list of the top player salaries for this year. Why is a list of the NBA’s top salaries so amusing? It has to do with the league’s insanely complicated “soft” salary cap. This system, […]
