Ed Davis, Jason Maxiell

Perhaps you’re unaware, but professional agitator and “Inside the NBA” co-host Charles Barkley informed the public he wasn’t going to eat another meal until the Lakers win a game. The Lakers won last night, and big man Ed Davis annihilated Jason Maxiell with a poster dunk during the contest. Then Davis annihilated Chuck just as bad on Twitter after the game. Read More »

Official Nuggets Twitter Trolls LeBron & Cavs

Kevin Love, LeBron James

The Cavs face the Nuggets tonight, after dropping three of their first four to open a 2014-15 NBA season with title hopes. LeBron James has looked off his game, and Kyrie Irving has already clashed with James about the way he runs the offense. Kevin Love has complained about getting more touches in the paint and first-time NBA coach David Blatt looks overwhelmed with his rotations. On top of all that drama — whether real, or exaggerated — the Nuggets official Twitter account decided to have a little fun at the expense of the presupposed Cleveland Big Three in their buildup before tonight’s contest.

Kendrick Lamar, Spike Lee

If you didn’t already know, precocious Compton, California hip hop artist Kendrick Lamar threw down a challenge too seemingly every rapper on the scene today with his verse on Big Sean‘s “Control” from last year. In one line, he even called out Phil Jackson, and the Zen aficionado took slight umbrage on Twitter. Vibe recently spoke with Lamar, and he said he wants to make peace with the famous basketball Peacenik, but Phil’s the only one he’ll apologize too. Read More »

Video: Tony Allen Slaps Camera, Not Camerman — Then Apologizes

Cameraman slapped by Tony Allen

Grizzlies off-guard, Tony Allen, can’t shoot the rock beyond maybe 15 feet and even that’s pushing it. He’s also sort of crazy, just follow his Twitter account. But he’s probably one of the toughest players in the league — over 25 percent of GM’s named him the toughest player in the NBA in their latest annual survey — and we love the way he plays defense and competes every night. That said, he became frustrated last night and slapped a court-side camera. Read More »

Lance Stephenson’s Fluky Videobomb Turns Into Meme

Derek Fisher, Lance Stephenson

Before Carmelo Anthony sealed the 96-93 win for the Knicks last night, Lance Stephenson heaved a desperation three-pointer, but he wasn’t able to get it off before the remaining eight-tenths of a second expired. Lance still thought he had been fouled on the attempt, and when he got up from the court to wonder at the no-call, his mug happened to pop up just as the camera was panning over to Knicks head coach Derek Fisher. A surprisingly funny meme was born. Read More »

Dan Le Batard Mocks Cavs And LeBron On Twitter

LeBron James

New uniforms, new court, the NBA’s best player returning to his hometown to play in a nationally televised home debut while a coterie of all-stars surround him. Check, check, check and check. Still, the Knicks played spoiler last night, 95-90 on TNT, when LeBron James and the Cavs came out flat to start the 2014-15 NBA season. As a result, Miami sports columnist and radio host Dan Le Batard, a frequent LeBron and Cavs foil ever since Decision 2.0 was announced, exhibited quite a bit of schadenfreude on Twitter during and after Cleveland’s stunning opening home loss.

Photo: Blasé Carmelo Anthony, Amar’e Stoudemire Pose With Taylor Swift

Carmelo Anthony, Taylor Swift, Amaré Stoudemire

Apparently Carmelo Anthony isn’t comfortable letting people believe he’s a fan of Taylor Swift. In a photo of the New York Knicks megastar, teammate Amar’e Stoudemire, and the 1989 singer, Anthony affects a blasé attitude befitting a man that doesn’t bang hits like “Love Story,” “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together,” and “Shake It Off.” But we’re not buying it. Swift’s tunes are too catchy for even a man of ‘Melo’s cool to not cue up on occasion. Read More »
