Damian Lillard Vows To Make Doubters Pay In (Deleted) Instagram Post

Damian Lillard

We considered simply updating our previous post on Damian Lillard’s reaction to being omitted from the All-Star team with his recent Instagram diatribe. But a message like this one deserves to stand on its own. In a measured, fiery rant ‘thanking’ the powers that be for his All-Star slight, Lillard promises to make doubters pay – the way he always has on his path to basketball greatness. Read More »

DeMarcus Cousins Calls Out Fox Sports Writer Who Predicted He’d Get Arrested

Clay Travis Tweet, DeMarcus Cousins

We were all set to write about the comeuppance of Fox Sports’ Clay Travis…until we saw some of the messages he’s been retweeting. Five years ago, to the day, Travis sent a tweet out predicting that DeMarcus Cousins would get arrested in five year’s time. He finished the prediction up by saying, it’s “set in stone.” Cousins reminded Travis of his tweet today, and Clay handled it well. Then the Twittersphere’s dark underbelly decided to rear it’s ugly head and now we just feel sorry for humanity. Read More »

J.R. Smith Knows He Had Little To Do With Kyrie Irving’s 55 Points (Pic)

J.R. Smith, Kyrie Irving

We were talking with another basketball writer last night and we both made comments about how much fun J.R. Smith gets out of being a professional basketball player. There are some characteristics he’s missing that could elevate his game to another level, but no one can accuse the man of not having good time, or some semblance of a sense of humor. After Kyrie Irving applauded how “It was a total team effort” following last night’s 55-point eruption, Smith’s reaction — a screen shot of which he posted to Instagram — is a good example why.

Lou Williams Comes To Amir Johnson’s Defense On Instagram

Lou Williams, Amir Johnson

Internet tough guys are pathetic, especially when the argument for which they’re willing to so idiotically stand is unfounded. Toronto Raptors reserve Lou Williams seems to agree with us. After a Toronto Raptors “fan” chastised the play of Amir Johnson on Instagram, the high-scoring guard came to his teammate’s with a firm rebuke. Warning: NSFW language coming after the jump.

Video: Warriors Celebrate Win On Team Plane With “We Dem Boyz”

David Lee, Draymond Green

Drugs are bad, but that didn’t stop the Golden State Warriors from celebrating their early season success by proclaiming love for the “CoCo” on the team plane after road wins – at first. The team’s PR people realized the not so thinly veiled message of O.T. Genasis’ tune as it gained national traction and promptly shut Golden State’s party down. But no matter – it seems the ‘Dubs have already moved onto another triumphant anthem. Read More »

Video: Watch Clippers Owner Steve Ballmer Spasm To Fergie

Steve Ballmer

The Clippers stomped the Lakers last night at Staples Center, 114-89, and the intercity rivals have appeared to switch places with the Clippers turning into title contenders and the Lakers plotting ping pong ball moves. New Clippers owner Steve Ballmer has a lot to be happy about with his $2 billion franchise, but perhaps he should refrain from dancing like he did last night. Read More »

Rick Ross Got A Miami Heat Logo Tattooed To His Face

Rick Ross

The Heat really miss LeBron James. They’re currently 15-20 and both Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh have missed time due to injuries. Josh McRoberts is done for the year with a torn ligament in his right knee, and its not clear if the Heat will even make the playoffs. That didn’t stop the titular head of Maybach Music Group from inking his face with his hometown team’s logo, though. Rick Ross tattooed the Heat’s halo’d flaming basketball logo right on his face, proving he’s a die-hard fan and more than a little crazy. Read More »

Lou Williams Makes Sure To DAP Road Raptors Fan

Louis Williams

The Raptors have claimed eight of their last 10 games after beating the Nuggets 116-102 on Sunday in Denver. Toronto’s lethal Louis “Lou” Williams off the bench has been particularly accurate with DeMar DeRozan down. Sweet Lou poured in 31 on Sunday, but he also made sure knock hands with every Raptors fan who made it out to the Pepsi Center. Read More »
