  • This Jeff Teague Dunk Defies the Laws of Gravity (Video)

    This Jeff Teague Dunk Defies the Laws of Gravity (Video)

    We saw two astounding things in Atlanta on Tuesday night. One was a Lakers win, which was just their second of the season. The other was a fantastic Jeff Teague dunk that defied the laws of gravity. We’re not going to talk about the Lakers win, of course, because talking about the Lakers just makes […]

    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)

    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 […]
