    Photo: George Washington Posterizes Kim Jong-un

    Sports are great, but they sometimes fall short of capturing the wonders of our national imagination in the kind of vivid detail that a good painting can. Take, for instance, the sentiment expressed in this painting from a Reddit user: even if the United States were to play basketball against a North Korean team, it’s […]

    Blake Griffin Posterized Kris Humphries…Again (Video)

    When it comes to instances of posterization in the National Basketball Association, I think it’s fair to say that no current NBA player has posterized more opponents than Blake Griffin, while no player has been posterized more than Kris Humphries. So when Humph’s Boston Celtics visited Blake’s Los Angeles Clippers last night, you had to […]

    Is your favorite NBA team struggling out of the gate? Well, don’t fret. It could always be worse…unless your team is the Utah Jazz, in which case, no, that’s pretty much as bad as it gets. Last night the Denver Nuggets rolled into Salt Lake City with a record of 1-4 and looking to figure […]

    Last night, the Miami Heat edged the Los Angels Clippers 102-97 thanks to a clutch fourth quarter performance by Dwyane Wade. However, the highlight of the game, just like Tuesday night in Toronto, involved LeBron James getting posterized. Of course, this time LeBron didn’t get dunked on by Jonas Valanciunas. This time the culprit was […]

    Last night, the Miami Heat won their first road game of the year and pulled above .500—and yes, that sounds as crazy to me writing it as it does to you reading it. They did it in Toronto, without the help of former Raptor Chris Bosh, but most definitely with the help of LeBron James. […]

    Any chances of the incredible Miami Heat going 82-0 or the horrible Philadelphia 76ers going 0-82 were dashed last night when the latter beat the former in a stunning upset at the Wells Fargo Center. And highlighting the 76ers’ 114-110 victory over the Heat was this emphatic dunk by 2010 second-overall draft pick Evan Turner […]

    21 GIFs of Basketball Players Getting Posterized

    In basketball, when a guy dunks over or, in some cases, through another guy, they call that “getting posterized.” The term is a reference to the fact that, if you took a photo at the right moment, the image would make an awesome poster fit for a kid’s (or a grownup’s) bedroom wall. If you’re a hardcore […]

    Remember last week when we suggested that “posterizing“—i.e., dunking a basketball over somebody in an unexpected place—might be the next big viral internet craze? Yeah, well, it’s happening. Before you know it this thing might reach “Harlem Shake” proportions. On May 15, the day after our first post on the subject, we saw this video […]

    Last night the Memphis Grizzlies put an end to the Oklahoma City Thunder’s season with an 88-84 win in Game 5 of their Western Conference Semifinal series. It wasn’t exactly a shocking defeat, given that the Thunder were missing Russell Westbrook, their second most important player. However, most observers probably thought Kevin Durant and company […]

  • Will “Posterizing” Be the Next Big Meme?

    Will “Posterizing” Be the Next Big Meme?

    Hey, remember planking? How about Tebowing? Or maybe Te’oing? Well, if we’re lucky, the big internet meme of 2013 will be posterizing. Now, for the uninitiated, “posterize” is a basketball term which basically means “to dunk on someone in a memorable fashion.” The idea is that, when a guy does this it looks like one […]

    The Miami Heat walked into the United Center in Chicago like gangbusters, but unfortunately for them, they ran into a Bulls team that was motivated to play the role of “streakbusters.” And in addition to stopping streaks, which they did via a 101-97 victory, the Chicago Bulls were also in the mood to make some […]

    Well that didn’t take long at all, now did it? Last night, LeBron James caused the sporting world to erupt when he threw down a monster alley-oop slam over Jason Terry, which sent the Boston Celtics’ guard crashing down onto the hardcourt.  The video has been replayed over and over on sports stations and sports […]

    The Lakers may be starting to pull things together a bit over the last 10 to 15 games, but overall this season has been pretty brutal. They got off to a horrible start, fired a coach, hired a guy many people thought was the wrong choice, and then they still struggled to play great ball. […]
