    As a head coach of an NBA basketball team, you’re always expected to be focused on the game.  But sometimes all of that focus may cause you to take your eyes off the ball and place them on another area of the court that requires your attention.  That must have been the case last night […]

    John Wall Threw Down an Incredible 360-Degree Dunk vs. the Lakers (GIF)

    John Wall of the Washington Wizards threw down a slam dunk against the Los Angeles Lakers last night that can only be described as “incredible”…Well, “unbelievable,” “amazing,” and “awesome” could work as well, but you get what I mean. It happened with about seven minutes to go in the second quarter and the Lakers leading […]

    NBA Player Jason Collins Comes Out As First Openly Gay Pro Athlete

    The NHL has been around since 1917, the NFL has been around since 1920, the NBA has been around since 1946, and the MLB has been around since 1869. Gay men have been around forever. Surprisingly, it has taken until 2013 for a player playing in one of the aforementioned North American sports leagues to […]

    Stat Line of the Night — 3/25/2013 — John Wall

    During Saturday’s game against the Golden State Warriors, the Washington Wizards’ John Wall was ejected from the game after picking up his second technical foul following a skirmish with Klay Thompson.  He would play only 24 minutes that game and the Wizards would go on to lose by a score of 101-92, but that sequence […]

    The Washington Wizards may be the worst team in the entire NBA at the moment, but they have been able to string together a season-high, three-game winning streak, with their latest victory coming last night against the Orlando Magic. And highlighting the Wizards’ 120-91 beatdown of the Magic was this crossover from John Wall, which […]

    The 2012-13 NBA season is two and a half weeks old now, but there is still one sad, pathetic team who has yet to win their first game. And, unbelievably, it’s not the Bobcats. They are actually 4-3. No, it’s the Washington Wizards. They are 0-7. And interestingly enough, the Wizards were in Charlotte on […]

    Wizards’ Nick Young Airs It Out On A Layup (Video)

    After watching Rajon Rondo make a mess out of his breakaway layup attempt during Tuesday night’s game between the Boston Celtics and the Houston Rockets, I didn’t believe I’d see a miss as embarrassing as that one in a while… …and then I was treated to this laughable highlight from last night’s game between the […]

    JaVale McGee Does Another JaVale McGee-like Thing (Video)

    Stupid plays, like performing an off-the-backboard alley-oop slam when his 1-11 team in trailing in the third quarter, have helped put JaVale McGee in the doghouse this season.  His antics during last night’s game against the Sacramento Kings certainly don’t make it appear as though he will be leaving that doghouse anytime soon. With the […]

    With the Washington Wizards entering last night’s game against the Houston Rockets sporting a league-worst 1-11 record, JaVale McGee was hoping to give the Wizards’ fans something to get excited about when he threw down an off-the-backboard self-alley-oop early in the third quarter with his team trailing by six. McGee didn’t see much wrong with […]

    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 […]

    JaVale McGee And Nick Young Take The Cinnamon Challange (Video)

    For those of you who have never taken the cinnamon challenge, I’d strongly advise against it.  Sure, eating a spoon full of cinnamon sounds easy and awfully delicious as well, but it isn’t!  Trust me!  I’ve tried it before and it is actually one of the most unpleasant things I have ever experienced. But for […]
