Every so often I need to revisit some of the great players of recent times, just to remind myself how phenomenal these talents truly were. Guys like Shaquille O'Neal, Michael Jordan and even the likes of youthful Grant Hill and Penny Hardaway are all worth remembering for the unusual talents they exhibited for us on […]
Miami Heat hosting the San Antonio Spurs. Game 2. NBA Finals 2013. Fourth quarter, with the game already decided. This happened. http://youtube.com/watch?v=oNaqLMAlIKU What is your immediate reaction to this? Sure, it's a solid and physically strong block by LeBron James. However, let's be serious here — Tiago Splitter is not known as a big-time dunker […]
This 1989 NBA All-Star Weekend footage is a beauty. Kenny "the gambler" Rogers joins Dominique Wilkins in a 3-on-3 battle against Michael Jordan and Isiah Thomas. Of course MJ doesn't turn down his competitive side at all in this show game, but Kenny has some tricks too! Check it out. No doubt, in his prime, […]
Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (7'2") looks short next to Big Bird (8'2") — but only one is a Hall of Fame NBA centre. That said, I think the yellow fella would be pretty good at boxing out in the post. In this video clip from Sesame Street, Kareem and BB teach you all about how subtraction works. […]
Andre Drummond of the Detroit Pistons did his best impression of Shaquille O'Neal against the Chicago Bulls on Sunday, as he airballed two consecutive free throws. Watch the video.
This video is a fantastic example of how dominant Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Wilt Chamberlain were as physical specimens, as they dunk all over each other in some brutal matchups. These guys would certainly make their mark in today's big man-poor NBA.
Kendrick Perkins is an angry man. I don't think I've ever seen him look anything other than somewhere in the continuum between angry and stoic. Check out this slap he delivers to the head of his Oklahoma City Thunder teammate Serge Ibaka, in recognition of good work.
Harrison Barnes (Golden State Warriors) lets Nikola Pekovic (Minnesota Timberwolves) know that he is ready for the NBA with this dunk in today's game. http://youtube.com/watch?v=FjECOakCpt8
Russell Westbrook (Oklahoma City Thunder) put down a nasty fastbreak slam dunk over Stephen Curry (Golden State Warriors). This just isn't fair really — Curry is still a minor, right? http://youtube.com/watch?v=CvT9_j0Fvqc
We all know that Gerald Green is an athletic freak. But this video is just further confirmation of that fact. Watch as Green jumps during a Indiana Pacers training session, with his head well and truly above the rim. http://youtube.com/watch?v=X70N-l4aSO4
Wilt Chamberlain was a remarkable athlete. I think that goes without saying. However, the thing about Wilt the Stilt coming from a bygone era is that so many of us have not watched him in action. It’s easy to dismiss his abilities as not worthy of the current era of superstar athletes. Truthfully, many NBA […]
Did you know that simply by purchasing a Jell-O cup back in 1996 you could look like a hard-hitting gangsta with your very own 1996 Dream Team tattoo? Tattoo… or applique… same thing, right? Either way, this is a pretty fun flashback commercial. Who is that little white guy wearing number 12, by the way? […]
The much awaited debut of Steve Nash in Los Angeles Lakers colours came today, as the Lakeshow took on the Golden State Warriors in NBA pre-season play. Whilst Dwight Howard sat courtside in a clownish suit, Nash put up five points and three assists in 14 minutes, including a decent ankle breaker on Jarrett Jack […]
The lockout-shortened 2011-12 NBA season brought us possibly the closest rivalry between the Los Angeles Lakers and Clippers that we’ve ever seen. With only one win separating the regular season records of both teams, the bolstering of the Clippers’ lineup with the arrival of Chris Paul certainly paid dividends. It might be a bit early […]
Jeremy Lin and David Lee “sneak out” of their Taipei hotel rooms to play some late night street hoops with the locals, with the predicatable frenzy ensuing. Hello Kitty — awesome. Count the number of people who are NOT filming the game on their mobile devices. David Lee, good looking out for your international brand! […]
