  • Wale Broke Some Ankles in 1-on-1 Outside of Game 4 (Video)

    Wale Broke Some Ankles in 1-on-1 Outside of Game 4 (Video)

    Wale doesn’t look like a guy who would have a sick basketball game. I mean, most of the world now knows that he’s a huge Wizards fan, but fandom doesn’t translate to basketball skill. Which is why I kicked Jack Nicholson’s ass in a dunk contest last week. Wale made an appearance at the Sprint […]

    Oracle Arena Looks Like It Was Pretty Loud Last Night (Pic)

    It’s no secret among NBA fans, players, and coaches that Oracle Arena is a very loud place to play basketball. It’s likely a testament to both the enthusiasm of the fans and the design of the place. But last night, it’s safe to say that the fans were taking things to another level as the […]

    Craig Sager Breaks from Chemo to Attend Rockets-Clippers Game 7 (Video)

    As most NBA and TNT fans know, Craig Sager hasn’t been on the NBA’s sidelines for the past year or so because he’s been battling leukemia. He’s been getting regular chemotherapy treatments at the MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, so when there was a game 7 back in town, it wasn’t a HUGE surprise […]

    James Harden Celebrates Win by Tossing Shoes into Stands (Video)

    The Houston Rockets went the distance with the LA Clippers, and despite having a number of gaps in their play, were able to decisively take the seventh game. A big reason for that was utility big man James Harden, who proved to excel in every aspect of the game during this series. You can add […]

  • Warriors Fans, Being Decent People, Booed Floyd Mayweather at Game 5 (Video)

    Warriors Fans, Being Decent People, Booed Floyd Mayweather at Game 5 (Video)

    Floyd Mayweather might be among the most recognizable athletes on the planet these days, but that doesn’t mean he’s always welcome. The reviled pugilist made an appearance at the Oracle Arena for last night’s Grizzlies-Warriors game, where he was promptly booed by Warriors fans. I guess they’re not huge fans of illiterate multimillionaires who have about a […]

  • DeAndre Jordan Asked About Foul Strategy, Leaves Interview (Video)

    DeAndre Jordan Asked About Foul Strategy, Leaves Interview (Video)

    DeAndre Jordan may have been part of a lopsided win on Sunday night over the Rockets, but that doesn’t necessarily mean he was in a good mood. He went to the free throw line 28 times in the first half, and 34 times overall (converting on 14 of those 34 attempts). When asked about the Rockets’ […]

    Paul Pierce Sinks Game-Winning Jumper for the Wizards (Video)

    Not to be outdone by the rest of the photo finishes we’ve seen in round two, Paul Pierce brought a little magic of his own to the Verizon Center on Saturday. Pierce got the ball with about five seconds left and the game tied at 101. At the top of the key with his back […]

    Bucks’ Greek Freak Gets a Flagrant 2 For Spearing Mike Dunleavy (Video)

    One of the 2014-15 success stories, the Milwaukee Bucks’ Giannis Antetokounmpo (thank God for copy and paste), better known to poor typists as the “Greek Freak,” ended his season on a decidedly down note after getting the boot during a game 6 blowout against the Chicago Bulls. (Note that the face of the victim, Mike Dunleavy, […]

  • Rick Carlisle Responds to Game 3 Fine with a Taped Mouth (Video)

    Rick Carlisle Responds to Game 3 Fine with a Taped Mouth (Video)

    Rick Carlisle got hit with a $25,000 fine after Friday’s loss to the Rockets when he criticized the officiating, so after game 4′s desperate victory, he took measures to ensure it wouldn’t happen again. Those measures included putting duct tape over his mouth, abduction-style, to prevent him from saying anything that might cost him some […]

  • Mavs Fans Have a Note to Escape Work Early for Game 3

    Mavs Fans Have a Note to Escape Work Early for Game 3

    Mavs fans may be a little discouraged after last night’s runaway loss to the alley-oop happy Houston Rockets, but that doesn’t mean they won’t be out in full force on Friday for an uncharacteristically early 6 PM tip-off. And the Mavs organization is covering the bases by offering up a sick note, courtesy of Dr. […]

  • Grizzlies Mascot Goes WWE on Blazers Mascot in Game 1 (Video)

    Grizzlies Mascot Goes WWE on Blazers Mascot in Game 1 (Video)

    The NBA playoffs kicked off on Saturday, and while there was plenty of great basketball being played, the star of the weekend may have been Grit, the Memphis Grizzlies mascot. While other mascots were just running around, lifting their arms in the air, the Grizzlies mascot climbed a ladder and frog-splashed the Blazers’ mascot (uh, probably not […]

    The Chicago Blackhawks were trailing the Nashville Predators 3-0 after the first period during Game 1 of their first-round NHL playoff series on Wednesday. They answered with three goals of their own in the second period to tie things up at 3-3.  And after a scoreless third period, we were treated to our first dose […]

    PK Subban Ejected From Game 1 For Slash on Sens’ Mark Stone (Video)

    The Montreal Canadiens beat the Ottawa Senators 4-3 in Game One of their Eastern Conference opening round match-up on Wednesday.  Making the victory that much more impressive was the fact that the Habs achieved it without the services of their leading scorer, Max Pacioretty, who is still sidelined with an upper body injury.  And they also had […]

    Patrick Kane Mullet Is Back For The Playoffs (Pic)

    Despite undergoing surgery on February 25th to repair a broken left collarbone, it was announced that Patrick Kane will make his return to the Chicago Blackhawks lineup in time for Game 1 of his team’s first-round playoff series against the Nashville Predators. Also returning to the Chicago Blackhawks lineup is the Patrick Kane mullet, which appeared to […]
