Do you have any idea how many people have come through the Dime HQ over the years touting their latest revolutionary basketball technology? Hundreds. Literally. Some (actual) samples of the nonsense we’ve heard:
“These shoes will make you jump higher!”
“These kicks make it scientifically impossible to roll your ankles!”
“This cloth fires electrons back into your muscles to make you faster and increase your vertical leap!”

We have a serious contest for our readers today, compliments of our good friends at Mission Court Grip. It’s a chance for you to win autographed items from Dwyane Wade, Brandon Jennings, and Steve Nash, as well as one of 100 bottles of Court Grip product.
Being a product’s spokesman is one thing. But actually using that product religiously? That’s another level. Dwyane Wade and Mission Court Grip are attempting to change the game, and it appears Brandon Jennings is onboard too. Check out Young Money’s reaction to Court Grip the first time he tested it below, and hear what he has to say about the brand after the jump.

But don’t just believe me – believe Dwyane Wade. Read More »
Tonight, Dwyane Wade looks more like Dwyane Wade than he has at any other point in this series (and his impact shows in the score). Watch this perfect Euro step and dunk on the break from the first half: Read More »

In the Cleveland Cavaliers huddle, with his team up one point and on defense with two seconds left in the game, we are almost positive that Byron Scott‘s message to his guys was definitely not, “Let Jeff Green drive right down the middle of the lane untouched for a layup to beat us.” Or maybe it was.
