I truly love everything about this video. Setting: 1997 NBA All-Star Game in the Eastern Conference locker room. Watch as Dikembe Mutombo talks trash to Michael Jordan‘s face about how in ‘Dik’s six years in the NBA, MJ has never dunked on him. Mutombo calls in in Scottie Pippen (who is apparently “The Decider” of all things MJ-related) to back him up.
You can guess what happens a few weeks later. Read More »
Check out this pic that surfaced last night that supposedly shows a sample of LeBron James new signature shoe, the Nike LeBron XI.
It looks like this one features a teal/pink colorway with a new iteration of a Foamposite upper called “Armorposite” as well as new Nike Swoosh logo placement. It’s rumored to be the lightest LeBron shoe ever. Read More »
Did you catch this after the San Antonio Spurs eliminated the Golden State Warriors last night in Oakland? The Warriors players remained on the floor after the final buzzer to thank their fans, with Stephen Curry taking the mic to address the home crowd.
For a young player who is still just realizing how good he can be while balancing the huge disappointment of elimination, Steph showed a ton of class and poise in this moment. Read More »
On this day in 2001, Allen Iverson was presented with his NBA MVP Award before Game 5 of his Sixers’ Eastern Conference Semi-Finals series against Vince Carter and the Toronto Raptors. [Check out A.I., White Chocolate and the 20 Best Crossovers in NBA History]

By now you may have seen J.R. Smith‘s comments following the Knicks‘ rotten performance last night in Indiana. New York’s offense has been atrocious, and J.R. (7-22 from the field last night) is taking the blame. Read More »
When the Boston Celtics were dispatched by the New York Knicks in the first round of this year’s NBA Playoffs, to many it seemed pretty clear that it officially signaled the end of Boston’s run with their core players. The Celtics looked old, slow and were generally outmatched against the Knicks – something clearly needs to be done to make them competitive in the near future and beyond.
That “something” starts with their two aging superstars, Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett. Right down to this season’s trade deadline Boston apparently considered trading Pierce and/or KG to various teams, so we know that the seeds of reality are there.
Now we get the rumor that Pierce himself doesn’t think he will be back in green and white next season, from a Celtics employee no less. Read More »

Everyone has an opinion on this Derrick Rose situation (here’s mine), and no matter where you fall Derrick and his “obligation” to play, I think we can all agree on one point: This whole thing is a mess.
And guess what, it could have all been avoided. Read More »
This is really getting closer happening isn’t it? Dummies who don’t understad anything about anything are going to bully Derrick Rose into returning to the court before he’s mentally ready to play, aren’t they? Against the Miami Heat, in a wildly intense playoff series after Derrick hasn’t played for more than a year, no less.
The other day, Rose spoke about his potential return before the Bulls kicked off their series with the Heat. Read More »
There was a little bit of a dust up over the weekend when LeBron James won his fourth MVP award in the last five seasons. Not because he won the award, but because one writer in the field did not give James his first place vote, denying LeBron the first-ever unanimous MVP vote.
Twitter went berserker wanting to know who had the gall to deny the King. Dan LeBatard even launched a Twitter firestorm by (sort of) claiming that he was the guy by tweeting “Melo was robbed” shortly after the vote was announced. People went nuts. He re-tweeted all of them.
So who was the real guy? This morning we have the answer, and it’s a sportswriter from Boston. Read More »
