LeBron’s Dirty Secret

LeBron is supposedly changing his number out of respect for Michael Jordan…but their relationship is a bit more complicated it might seem.

Gridiron Celebrity Hoops XII

Each year at the Super Bowl, the likes of Floyd Mayweather, Terrell Owens, and DeAngelo Hall suit up for a charity basketball game. Here’s a glimpse into the action at Gridiron Celebrity Hoops XII.

Now you’re all in big, big trouble…

Now you’re all in big, big trouble…

With Stephon Marbury shipping off to China, we look to a classic of modern cinema to explain what his new life will be like…

Spud’s Shortlist: Shaq Digs the Swedes, Juwan Howard is Scared & Vote 4 Amar’e Rolls On

The videos from Vote 4 Amar’e just continue to get better. (The Hoop Doctors) All the things that have happened since the Pistons won a game.

Sixth Man of the Day: Danilo Gallinari

Sixth Man of the Day: Danilo Gallinari

There’s plenty of reasons to love Danilo Gallinari, from his unbridled Italian spirit to the fact that he’s both made and attempted more three-pointers than anyone else in the league.  But what distinguishes Gallo from the pack is the fact that he always seems to be having fun whether he’s on or off the court. […]

Season’s Greetings from Agent Zero

Season’s Greetings from Agent Zero

Whatever happened to the good old days? When the neighborhood kids set the mood by singing carols, as a soft blanket of snow fell to the ground? Not to worry — Agent Zero, Gilbert Arenas’ mini-me, is here to bring back the Christmas cheer.  And he’s not afraid to belt out a holiday classic… For […]

The Creamsicle: Delicious Treat, Ugly Kicks

The Creamsicle: Delicious Treat, Ugly Kicks

On Wednesday night, when the Oklahoma City Thunder hosted the Dallas Mavericks at the Ford Center, the entire Thunder roster wore forward Kevin Durant’s new Nikes, dubbed the Creamsicles. Despite our love for the delicious childhood treat, the white uniform and orange shoe combo was frankly less than appetizing. More troubling was the Thunder’s lackluster […]

¡Ay Dios Mio! ¡Viva Pau!

With everyone focused on the almighty Kobe Bryant for draining yet another game-winning jumper last night, the return of Pau Gasol has come with little fanfare. And despite the fact that Pau pulled down a career-high 22 rebounds yesterday and has 78 boards in the past four games, no one on the Lakers has batted an […]

Spud is Short. So is his List!

Sixth Man of the Day: Squad 6

Sixth Man of the Day: Squad 6

If you went to a Milwaukee Bucks home game last year, you were probably greeted with a half-empty stadium and a less than enthusiastic fan base. Whether it was the rust-belt economy or the Bucks’ abysmal play, something was keeping the natives of Wisconsin out of the Bradley Center…but that was until starting center Andrew […]

Spud’s Shortlist: Philly’s other A.I., Superman Spits on the Ball, and Luc Longley’s Strange eBay bid

Luc Longley adds to the weird reputation of Australian basketball players. (NESW Sports) Dwight Howard’s disgusting free-throw ritual. (Guyism) With all the attention on A.I, Philly’s other A.I. hit this ridiculous shot. (Hoop Doctors) If you’ve never watched a FIBA Asia Basketball game before, you’ll want to now. (The Blowtorch) Rondo plays rough defense, tough […]

Sixth Man of the Day: Stephen Curry

Sixth Man of the Day: Stephen Curry

Whatever happened to the idea of being cool?  And why’s everybody gotta be so damn hard these days? In the 70s, you had Barry White smiling at his fans and Walt “Clyde” Frazier gracing NBA arenas with his smooth play and even smoother vocal stylings. But these days you’ve got Jay-Z trying to scare the […]

Spud’s Shortlist: Artest, Alcohol, and the Chris Kaman Story

The Best View has ten of ‘em. (Fansided) If you have a man-crush on sports bloggers, look no further: A good listen from the […]

Sixth Man of the Day: Kiki Vandeweghe

Sixth Man of the Day: Kiki Vandeweghe

At 0–17, it’s no secret that New Jersey Nets are an absolute train wreck.  But with today’s announcement that Kiki Vandeweghe will be taking over as head coach, the Nets may have found just the remedy to erase the goose egg from the win column.  Who better than an NBA Legend to lead a young, […]

Sixth Man of the Day: Stephon Marbury

Sixth Man of the Day: Stephon Marbury

Somehow, we’ve never recognized Stephon Marbury as our Sixth Man of the Day…but that ends now. Sure, we like Transformers as much as the next guy. But it takes true fanaticism, some serious cojones, and a stroke of genius to strap on an Optimus Prime helmet and stream yourself live to your adoring fans…all at […]

Hotlanta is Back!

Hotlanta is Back!

Young, gifted and ridiculously athletic, the Atlanta Hawks have showed flashes of brilliance, but no one saw them as a legitimate contender coming into this season.  It’s been the same story for years — a decent squad, but bowing out in the first round of the playoffs was all that was ever expected. But fifteen […]

A Savage Southpaw…with a tender side.

A Savage Southpaw…with a tender side.

He might be all smiles outside of the ring, but on Saturday night Manny Pacquaio proved that inside the ropes, he’s one of the fiercest, most punishing boxers that has ever lived. While many of the so-called experts were picking Miguel Cotto to take down the smaller Pacquiao, by the end of the third round, […]
