Video: K-State’s Brandon Bolden Levels Southern Utah Player’s Dunk Attempt

Brandon Bolden, John Marshall

Ouch. This was brutal. During college basketball action last night, Southern Utah’s John Marshall sneaked into the backcourt to intercept the inbounds pass by Kansas State’s Brandon Bolden. But when Marshall tried to take it in for a score, Bolden annihilates him so thoroughly, we’re not sure Marshall will ever take it hard to the hole again. Read More »

Video: Drake Uses Lint-Roller, Air Balls Jumper At Kentucky Midnight Madness

Drake

Drake is a fan of University of Kentucky basketball. Other than the Wildcats’ unparalleled success since John Calipari took reins of the storied program in 2009, we’re not exactly sure why. But that’s beside the point here. At UK’s Midnight Madness event to kick off the 2014-2015 tonight, the Nothing Was The Same rapper not only appeared, but sarcastically used a lint-roller and not so sarcastically air balled a jumper.

Remember This Name: Jaylen Brown, Class Of 2015 Superstar

Jaylen Brown

Meet Jaylen Brown. He is a 17-year-old, 6-7 wing that hails from Marietta, Georgia. Some say he reminds them of 2014 second overall Draft pick Jabari Parker with more athleticism. Some say he resembles the number one small forward out of the class of 2014, Stanley Johnson, who will be suiting up for the Arizona Wildcats later this year. However, Brown is writing his own path, and by the way he has been rocking it on the hardwood lately, his name will be in the spotlight for years to come. Read More »

Video: Watch Nik Stauskas Hit 15 Straight Three-Pointers In 46 Seconds

Nik Stauskas

Kings rookie Nik Stauskas spent two seasons at Michigan before declaring for the 2014 NBA Draft. He shot better than 44 percent in both those campaigns, and the Kings expect him to make an impact from beyond the arc after they finished 27th in the league in three-point shooting percentage last season. A recent video of Stauskas training this summer should make Sac-town fans happy and could even mean he gets a nod for the three-point shootout in February. Read More »
