Video: Magic Rookie Aaron Gordon Rises For Alley-Oop Slam Over Glen Rice, Jr.

Aaron Gordon

Aaron Gordon is already scary. Just imagine if the Orlando Magic rookie’s skills ever catch up to his athleticism. For now, though, flashes of that world class explosiveness will more than suffice. Watch Gordon lead the break before rising and finishing an alley-oop over top of the Washington Wizards’ Glen Rice, Jr.. Read More »

GIF: Derrick Rose Goes High Off The Glass To Finish

Derrick Rose

The Chicago Bulls cruised past the Knicks at Madison Square Garden Tuesday night, 104-80, and they didn’t even need a spectacular game from returning point guard Derrick Rose. He was relatively quiet in his 21 minutes of action, but he did manage to drop a wrong-footed floater high off the glass. Read More »

Video: Watch Marc Gasol Drop A Career High 32 Points In An Opening Night Win

Marc Gasol, Nikola Pekovic

The Grizzlies got all they could handle from a young Timberwolves team when they opened the season at FedExForum in Memphis. But slimmer Spanish center Marc Gasol led the way by dropping a career high 32 points on an efficient 12-for-17 from the field. Watch him show it all off in his career-best performance dropping buckets: the spinning up-and-under, the mid-range stroke, dives to the hoop off the pick-and-roll, passing from the high post, plus all the off-ball characteristics that make Marc one of the best centers in the game today.

Video: Every Anthony Davis Block In Near Triple-Double

Elfrid Payton, Anthony Davis

In his first game of the 2014-15 season, Anthony Davis somehow met the insane expectations placed upon him after a dominating performance at the FIBA World Cup in Brazil this summer following his ascendent 20 and 10 season with a banged up 2013-14 Pellies team. He almost had a triple-double…in blocks during New Orleans’ 101-84 opening game win over Orlando. Read More »

The poor Lakers were crushed last night by the Rockets, 108-90, in their opening home game of the 2014-15 season. Not only did Dwight elbow Mamba before trading barbs, but exciting rookie Julius Randle fractured his tibia. Point guard Jeremy Lin struggled, too, going just 1-for-5 from the field for seven points in 29 minutes. Except, his lone bucket was pretty tight. Read More »

Video: Chandler Parsons Spikes Slam Against Spurs In First Dunk Of The Season

Chandler Parsons

The Mavs are outplaying the defending champs on ring night, but all defending champs have a tendency to underwhelm when they’re receiving their hardware from the previous season. Chandler Parsons started the 2014-15 season with a dunk after sluicing through the Spurs’ D (Gregg Popovich already has a lot of tape to show his team) before the one-handed slam. Read More »

Derrick Rose

Derrick Rose (Jeff Curry, USATODAY)

Make that 57 points in the last two games for Derrick Rose. As the Chicago Bulls superstar plays like he did against the Cleveland Cavaliers a few days ago and Minnesota Timberwolves on Friday night, it’s easy to believe that he’s capable of leading his team to a title. There’s just nothing defenses can do to stop a player of Rose’s unmatched explosion when he’s confident, aggressive, and his jumper is falling. Read More »

GIF: Andrew Bogut Goes Around The Back, Throws Perfect Outlet For Dunk

Andrew Bogut

For his first two seasons in a Golden State Warriors uniform, Andrew Bogut was little more than defensive anchor. It speaks to his immense value in only such a role that his impact on the Warriors still loomed so large despite his skills on the other end being wholly underutilized. But Steve Kerr has rocked the boat in the Bay, and the all-court playmaking prowess that the former number one pick showed so frequently as a Milwaukee Buck has finally returned. Watch Bogut grab the loose ball, go around his back, and throw a perfect, 65-foot, baseball-style outlet to Andre Iguodala for the flush. Read More »
