  • Blake Griffin Hits His Head On The Backboard (Video)

    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)

    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

    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 […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 2/14/11 — Josh Smith

    Looking to keep pace with the Orlando Magic for fourth spot in the Eastern Conference standings, and a chance at home-court advantage in the first round of the playoffs, the Atlanta Hawks knew that a game against the lowly Detroit Pistons was one they simply had to win.  They did just that, thanks in large […]

  • Big Baby Comes Up A Little Short (Video)

    Big Baby Comes Up A Little Short (Video)

    As big as Glen “Big Baby” Davis may be, he is not quite big enough to make any dunk attempt a guaranteed success.  That was evident on Sunday afternoon when the Celtics’ forward/center found himself all alone on a break following a turnover against the Miami Heat, only to have his dunk attempt rejected by […]

  • The Stat Line Of The Night — 2/13/11 — Rajon Rondo

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 2/13/11 — Rajon Rondo

    The Heat and the Celtics hooked up in Boston on Sunday in what may very well be a preview of this year’s Eastern Conference finals.  The Celtics would likely invite such a scenario as they have dominated LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh and the rest of the South Beach boys this season, beating them […]

    Look At Me! I’m J.R. Smith! (GIF)

    Despite his ability to score points, drain three-pointers and contribute in many other ways on the basketball court, the Denver Nuggets’ J.R. Smith continues to be left off his team’s starting rotation.  That has resulted in a lack of playing time for the sixth year guard (24 minutes per game), leaving him looking for some […]

    Knicks Landry Fields Is Modell’s Funniest, Worst Salesman (Video)

    The New York Knicks’ Landry Fields has proven himself to be among the top rookies the NBA has to offer (he was picked to represent the Rookie Team at the T-Mobile Rookie Challenge on All-Star Weekend), and while his play has gained the attention of league officials, plenty of Knicks fans remain clueless when it […]

  • The Stat Line Of The Night — 2/10/11 — Carmelo Anthony

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 2/10/11 — Carmelo Anthony

    Despite all the trade rumors and other distractions Carmelo Anthony has had to endure off the court, the Denver Nuggets forward continues to bring it on the court.  Heading into last night’s game against the red-hot Dallas Mavericks, Melo was averaging 32 points per game in his previous six games.  He would improve upon that […]

    LA Lakers Greeted By Taunts From Emerson College Student (Video)

    The Los Angeles Lakers are in Boston this evening to take on the Celtics in a much anticipated rematch of last season’s NBA Championship series. And while Kobe Bryant and company probably weren’t expecting to be on the receiving end of a warm welcome from the Beantown faithful, they may have been slightly surprised by […]

  • 14-Year-Old Jamar Ergas Performs An In-Game 360 Dunk (Video)

    14-Year-Old Jamar Ergas Performs An In-Game 360 Dunk (Video)

    At 14 years of age, Jamar Ergas is not even in high school, but his high-flying in-game dunks look like something you would expect to see during a college or professional basketball game.  What is even more surprising than his age is the fact that Ergas is a Canadian kid who hails from the suburbs […]

  • The Stat Line Of The Night — 2/9/11 — Dwight Howard

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 2/9/11 — Dwight Howard

    The Orlando Magic have struggled as of late, heading into last night’s game with only four wins in their previous nine contests.  They have also struggled on the road, sitting only one game above .500 away from the Amway Center.  That made the thought of earning a win in Philadelphia against a suddenly surging 76ers […]

  • Vote Matt Bonner For The Three-Point Competition (Video)

    Vote Matt Bonner For The Three-Point Competition (Video)

    The contestants for the Foot Locker Three-Point Contest during the NBA’s All-Star Weekend have yet to be determined.  That means there is still time for the guys at The Basketball Jones to convince commissioner David Stern that the San Antonio Spurs’ Matt Bonner should be there. Bonner is currently hitting 50.4 percent of his three-point […]

  • The Stat Line Of The Night — 2/3/11 — LeBron James

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 2/3/11 — LeBron James

    At the beginning of the season the Miami Heat made it known to all that they are looking to win a Championship.  In order to do so, they will likely have to go through the Orlando Magic at some point during their playoff run.  That made last night’s meeting between the two teams that much […]
