    Picture Of The Day: Spelling FAIL!

    Despite the fact that we live in an era where spell check applications are available all around us, I can still somewhat manage to look past the misspelling of words like “Kentucky” and “Nationals.” As for the name “Smith,” there is no excusing its misspelling.  In fact, I never even knew it was possible to […]

  • Take That Blake Griffin! (Video)

    Take That Blake Griffin! (Video)

    Yeah, we all know by now that Blake Griffin dunked over a car at the 2011 Sprite Slam Dunk Contest.  Big  whoop de-do!  After all, he only jumped over the front hood.  And could he have picked a smaller car?  I’ll bet 95% of the league could jump over the hood of a 2011 Kia […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 2/27/11 — Kevin Love

    Kevin Love entered last night’s game against the Golden State Warriors on an impressive streak that has seen him record a double-double in 45 consecutive game.  It took him less than a half to make it 46 games in a row as Love not only kept his streak going, but he did so in a […]

    Kobe Bryant Flies Turkish Airlines (Video)

    Kobe Bryant has had little time to travel over the past three summers as his Los Angeles Lakers have continued to play basketball well into June, making the NBA Finals the past three seasons.  But when he does have the opportunity to get away, “The Black Mamba” chooses Turkish Airlines, and you should too. Heck, […]

    Chris Bosh Flops Following A Phantom Elbow (Video)

    You could have put Chris Bosh in a soccer uniform last night and the Miami Heat forward wouldn’t have looked even the slightest bit out of place, thanks to a rather embarrassing flop he took while defending the Chicago Bulls’ Carlos Boozer. Midway through the second quarter, it appeared as though Boozer had elbowed Bosh […]

  • 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

    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

    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 […]
