  • Picture Of The Day: NBA All-Star Weekend, a.k.a. Black Thanksgiving?

    Picture Of The Day: NBA All-Star Weekend, a.k.a. Black Thanksgiving?

    So does this mean I spent my “Black Thanksgiving” watching Blake Griffin dunk over a Kia Optima and Kobe Bryant dominate the Eastern Conference in front of a sellout crowd at the Staples Center?  No Turkey?  No stuffing?  No cranberry sauce and sweet potato pie?  Am I the only one who was unaware of this […]

    9 Things Blake Griffin Should Jump Over At Next Year’s Dunk Contest

    Jumping over a car ain’t so great. Don’t misunderstand though: Blake Griffin is great. In what’s essentially his rookie year, he has been the poster boy for excitement in a league that offers a lot of excitement to begin with. So what’s so exciting about hurdling a compact(ish) car? A Kia, nonetheless? Nothing. There’s nothing […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 2/20/11 — Kobe Bryant

    Playing in front of the hometown crowd at the Staples Center, Kobe Bryant had only two things on his mind once they tipped-off the 2011 NBA All-Star Game; win the game and capture honors as the Most Valuable Player.  Not only would he accomplish both feats, but he would do so in a rather impressive […]

    9 Insane Dunks You Have to See to Believe (Videos)

    As you know, yesterday was the NBA All-Star Game, and like all All-Star games, no one really gives a sh*t. After all, it’s meaningless. But the NBA’s All-Star weekend has one redeeming quality: the Slam Dunk Contest. And while even the dunk contest can be boring, Blake Griffin managed to breath some life into this […]

    The NBA’s Spite Slam Dunk Contest is set to take flight tonight in Los Angeles, and the energy building around this year’s event couldn’t be much more electric.  Not since Vince Carter was chosen to participate in 2000 has there been so much hype surrounding the event, and it is all because of one man… […]

    Nuggets To Trade Carmelo Anthony To The Nets, Await His Approval

    First it was the Knicks.  Then the Nets.  Then the Lakers. Then the Bulls. Then the Rockets.  Then the Nuggets.  Then the Knicks again.  And finally, it appears as though the Carmelo Anthony trade-destination wheel is prepared to finally stop on the New Jersey Nets. Melo will enter this weekend’s All-Star festivities as a member […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 2/17/11 — Derrick Rose

    In a battle between two of the NBA’s best teams, it was a career-best performance from the NBA’s best point guard that would prove to be the difference.  The San Antonio Spurs have three great guards of their own in Tony Parker, Manu Ginobili and Gary Neal, but they were no match for the Chicago […]

    J.J. Redick Gets His Ankles Broken…Again! (Video)

    The Orlando Magic’s J.J. Redick showed an incredible amount of courage last night when he continued to play despite suffering his second broken ankle this month.  Of course, when we say “broken ankle” we are talking about basketball’s version of the injury, which inflicts more pain on one’s self-esteem than on their actual ankle. The […]

    Blake Griffin Hits His Head On The Backboard (Video)

    At times, Blake Griffin’s worst enemy can be his very own leaping ability…and those incredibly hard backboards. It has become quite obvious that the only thing capable of stopping the Los Angeles Clippers’ superstar rookie once he takes flight is the possibility of him hitting his head on the backboard.  That was the case last […]

    LeBron James Assisted On His Own Basket Last Night (Video)

    A few days ago the University of Bridgeport men’s basketball team showed us all how a Division II school gets on SportsCenter when two of their players teamed up for an incredible off-the-backboard alley-oop dunk.  Last night, LeBron James showed us all that he doesn’t need anyone’s help to create his own highlight reel slam […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 2/15/11 — Dwyane Wade

    Heading into last night’s game against the Indiana Pacers, Dwyane Wade’s status remained uncertain as he was believed to be nursing a sprained ankle.  He would eventually suit up for the Miami Heat, and wasted little time putting any questions regarding his health to rest. Wade was on fire early and often, scoring 22 points […]

    Raptors Fans Watch Team Lose 111-100, Go Wild For Free Pizza (Video)

    Perhaps one of the greatest promotions in the entire NBA comes from the Air Canada Center in Toronto, where Raptors fans are awarded one free pizza from Pizza Pizza if their team can reach 100 points.  Once the Raptors reach the century mark in any home game, those in attendance can use their ticket stub […]
