  • The Stat Line of the Night – 4/29/10 – Manu Ginobili

    The Stat Line of the Night – 4/29/10 – Manu Ginobili

    This one was almost over before it started. I’m talking about game 6 between the Spurs and Mavericks, although if I was talking about the whole series that would work too. The Spurs opened up a huge 22-8 lead at the end of the first quarter and ended up with a 97-87 victory. They took […]

  • The Most Questionable Foul Call In The NBA Playoffs?

    The Most Questionable Foul Call In The NBA Playoffs?

    When it comes to officiating in the sport of basketball, there is no shortage of subjectivity involved.  Much like a holding penalty in football, or a strike in baseball, a foul can be called during almost any play on the hard court (which makes point-shaving all the more likely).  It all depends on whether the […]

  • Luol Deng Dances Around LeBron For An Incredible Basket

    Luol Deng Dances Around LeBron For An Incredible Basket

    Usually it is LeBron James making the highlight reel plays at the expense of the opposition’s dignity, but last night the tables were turned, thanks to the Chicago Bulls’ Luol Deng.  After having his hands full guarding LeBron through the first two games of their best-of-seven series with the Cavs, it was Deng’s turn to […]

  • Charles Barkley Loves Blondes, Hates “Assholes” (Video)

    Charles Barkley Loves Blondes, Hates “Assholes” (Video)

    The power of Charles Barkley is really quite amazing.  Sure, the guy has his problems, which include a terrible golf swing and a knack for drinking and driving, but the former NBA All-Star and Hall of Famer has single-handedly made TNT’s basketball coverage “Must See TV.” His on-air hi-jinks always seem to provide viewers with […]

    Mickael Pietrus Has Crazy Eyes

    With the second seed wrapped up in the Eastern Conference, the Orlando Magic have been afforded the opportunity to sit back and enjoy the last few weeks of the regular season.  Although they have not slowed down, stringing together five straight wins heading into the post-season, they do appear to be a lot more relaxed.  […]

  • Shaq Has Gone Marbury Crazy (Video)

    Shaq Has Gone Marbury Crazy (Video)

    Everybody knows that if you’ve been injured and haven’t worked for a while you start to get a bit crazy. Shaquille O’ Neal is hurt and hasn’t played for the Cavs since the end of February. So it only makes sense that he’s starting to lose it a bit. So getting a bit goofy is […]

  • Carmelo Anthony Naps On The Court (Video)

    Carmelo Anthony Naps On The Court (Video)

    On Tuesday night it was Dan Gadzuric taking 20 seconds to tie his damn shoe.  Not to be outdone, Carmelo Anthony decided that with 34 seconds left in the third quarter, it was the perfect time for him to take a nap in the Oklahoma City end of the court.  Haven’t these guys ever heard […]

    Caron Butler Stars In His Own Old Spice Parody

    Winners of three in a row, and currently holding on to the second seed in the Western Conference, the Dallas Mavericks have done everything but stink up the joint.  In fact, throughout the course of their climb up the standings, they have smelled quite good, thanks in large part to the “Mavs Musk.” Now the […]

  • KG on KD: Thought We Was Playin’ Michael F*cking Jordan Tonight

    KG on KD: Thought We Was Playin’ Michael F*cking Jordan Tonight

    When the Celtics played the Los Angeles Lakers in the NBA finals a few years back, they needed the fans at the TD Banknorth Garden to remind Kobe Bryant that he was not Michael Jordan. You can bet that last night during their game against the Oklahoma City Thunder, Kevin Garnett was wishing the Boston […]

  • The Greatest Basketball Shot That Didn’t Count?  (Video)

    The Greatest Basketball Shot That Didn’t Count? (Video)

    A buzzer-beating shot can be hard to come by in the NBA.  For one, it is tough to make the basket, especially when you consider the locations that most buzzer-beating shots are taken from.  And secondly, there is the clock.  Sure, when you watch the game on television you can always be aware of how […]

  • The Stat Line of the Night – 3/29/10 – Dirk Nowitzki

    The Stat Line of the Night – 3/29/10 – Dirk Nowitzki

    Dirk Nowitzki is a great shooter, scorer, and rebounder.  He isn’t as well known for his passing, but that doesn’t mean he isn’t great at that too.  Last night he excelled at all three in a must-win game with the Nuggets to hang onto the 2nd seed in the Western Conference. Let’s talk about his […]

  • Hawks’ Josh Smith Hits A Buzzer Beating Dunk

    Hawks’ Josh Smith Hits A Buzzer Beating Dunk

    There may not be a better way to clinch a playoff spot for your team. Time is winding down and the opposition has just tied the game with a three-pointer.  With no timeouts left, your guard takes the ball up the court, slashes left and puts up a fad-away jumper that rims out.  It looks […]

  • Amateur Freestyler Sings A LeBron James Rap (Video)

    Amateur Freestyler Sings A LeBron James Rap (Video)

    Suddenly, Kobe Bryant is no longer the only NBA player with a song named after him, thanks to this dude. What this freestyler lacks in talent, he makes up for in……ummmm….courage?  I guess that is a fair statement when you consider the fact that even though he is terrible, he still had the balls to […]

  • Knicks Cheerleaders As Bad As Their Team (Video)

    Knicks Cheerleaders As Bad As Their Team (Video)

    When it comes to cheerleading, looks may be important, but they are not everything.  After all, not even a curvy body and beautiful face can hide an obvious mishap from the fans, which is rather unfortunate for this Knicks cheerleader. It appears as though the Knicks dance squad has been using similar scouting/recruiting techniques as […]
