    The Clippers’ Matt Barnes Was Throwing Elbows Last Night (Video)

    Is it just me, or are there more flagrant fouls in the NBA than there used to be—particularly ones involving elbows? Back in April, of course, there was the Metta World Peace-to-James Harden “elbow heard ’round the world” (or at least in North America and Taiwan). Then, just a few weeks ago, Thomas Robinson of […]

    With the New Orleans Saints already taking plenty of heat for their involvement in “bounty-gate” these days, one can’t help but wonder if the city’s other sports team, the New Orleans Hornets, had a bounty program of their own in place last night that offered to pay a bonus to any player who could injure […]

    13 Hilarious Will Ferrell Sports Moments (Videos)

    The other night in New Orleans, Will Ferrell randomly showed up at a matchup between the Hornets’ and Chicago Bulls to do the pre-game player introductions. As you would expect, things quickly turned hilarious. Now, if it seems to you like Will Ferrell always seems to be making sports movies and turning up at some […]

    Will Ferrell Does Player Introductions For Bulls vs. Hornets (Video)

    Last night was 80s night in New Orleans, and while the game between the NBA’s first-place Chicago Bulls (22-6) and the last-place Hornets (4-22) didn’t generate much excitement, – the Bulls cruised to an easy 90-67 victory – the same cannot be said about the pre-game player introductions. Having experience as an owner, player, coach […]

    12 Best NBA Court Designs Of 2012

    The NBA certainly has its share of problems (like commissioner David Stern). But if there’s one thing the league has going for it, it’s that it looks good on TV. And in an age when every single game is televised, looking good on TV really matters. In fact, I would argue that, among the big […]

    Kobe Bryant Posterized Emeka Okafor Last Night (Video)

    There were plenty of questions surrounding the Los Angeles Lakers heading into Game 5 of their best-of-seven series against the New Orleans Hornets last night at the Staples Center.  You could probably say that Kobe Bryant answered all of those questions with one thunderous slam over the head of Hornets’ center Emeka Okafor. One of […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 4/24/11 — Chris Paul

    Not many people gave the New Orleans Hornets a chance against the Los Angeles Lakers in their opening round series of the 2011 NBA playoffs.  Following last night’s game, a few minds may have been changed, thanks to an incredible performance from Hornets guard Chris Paul. Paul was doing it all in Game 4, recording […]

    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 […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night – 1/30/11 – Marcin Gortat

    When Marcin Gortat was traded from the Orlando Magic to the Phoenix Suns as part of a six-player swap on December 18, his name was believed to be an afterthought in a deal that included the likes of Vince Carter, Hedo Turkoglu and Jason Richardson.  However, Gortat has not only proven to be an impact […]

    LeBron James Hits A Prayer From Behind The Backboard (Video)

    Love him or hate him, LeBron James is a pretty damn good basketball player.  And despite his team’s early struggles, he continues to do it all on the court, averaging 24 points per game, 5.9 rebounds, 7.2 assists, and hitting shots from just about everywhere on the court. With LeBron and the Heat now finding […]

    The Stat Line of the Night — 11/29/10 — Russell Westbrook

    Kevin Durant may be the new young face of the NBA and an MVP candidate, but he may not even be the best player on his team.  Russell Westbrook has been having an outstanding start to the season and some say he may be more of a reason for the Thunder’s success than even Durant himself.  […]

    Emeka Okafor’s Poor Fashion Sense Prefect For New Orleans

    Total Pro Sports – Just over a week ago Emeka Okafor was traded by the Charlotte Bobcats to the New Orleans Hornets in exchange for Tyson Chandler.  Don’t believe him?  He has this monstrosity of a jacket to prove it. We don’t know what would possess someone to wear such a thing, but Okafor seems […]
