    This Video of Fake NBA Trash Talking is Hilarious (Video)

    Lots of sports broadcasts are putting microphones on athletes and coaches these days to get an “insider’s perspective” on what’s happening in the game. However, if the game doesn’t happen to be completely meaningless (like an All-Star Game), they tend to edit and censor what the players say pretty frequently. So fans don’t really get […]

    Watch Wade Boggs Dance at the Thunder-Spurs Game (Video)

    A smooth swing in the batter’s box doesn’t always translate into some smooth moves on the dance floor. Want proof?  Look no further than former Red Sox third baseman Wade Boggs, whose smooth swing earned him five batting titles and a career average of .328 during his 18 seasons in the majors.  Unfortunately for him, […]

    When you’re a superstar athlete, your every step is watched and analyzed. The more successful you are, the more everyone knows your every mannerism, tick, and facial expression. And this is especially true in the basketball world, where superstars have more control over the outcome of a game than in any other major team sport. […]

    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 […]

    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 […]
