The Best Phantom Dunks Of The 2013-14 NBA Season

Kevin Durant

We already showed you the best dunks of the 2013-14 NBA Season, but with NBA cameras seemingly in every little crevice of the arena, they can now slow down the action, so you can watch every morsel of a throw-down frame by glorious frame. These delicious dunks never looked more reverential, and now you can experience all the high-flying action from last season in slow motion. Read More »

Basketball fans, including us, may have been transfixed at Anthony Davis and company’s showcase at Team USA’s FIBA World Cup exhibition match against Brazil at the United Center in Chicago on Saturday, but there were plenty of sparks coming off the court in the Pacific Northwest last weekend that were too good to be overlooked. Former NBA Slam Dunk winner and current Toronto Raptor Terrence Ross and incoming NCAA freshman Stanley Johnson – who recently committed to Arizona – made their Seattle Pro-Am debuts this past weekend, and they sure brought their “A” game.

We’re all extremely excited about Steve Ballmer replacing the despicable Donald Sterling as owner of the Los Angeles Clippers.

Earl “The Goat” Manigault and David “Skywalker” Thompson are the hoopers most notorious for being able to touch the top of the backboard. Both legends could supposedly “make change” by grabbing coins from 13-feet above the court, a surreal accomplishment that – to public knowledge, at least – no current NBA players can duplicate. It’s pretty surprising, then, how easy street-baller Kirpatrick McCauley made it look recently at Venice Beach. Read More »

Okay, so perhaps calling Steph Curry’s beautiful step-back jumper the likely highlight of Team USA’s exhibition against Brazil was premature. We just momentarily forgot that an alien force like Anthony Davis was playing, too. Read More »

This Dirk Nowitzki Highlight Reel Shows Just How Dominant He Remains

Dirk Nowitzki

Easily lost amid the July hubbub of LeBron James returning to Cleveland and even Carmelo Anthony’s whirlwind free agency tour was Dirk Nowitzki’s dollars on the penny extension with the Dallas Mavericks. Maybe that’s because the only drama surrounding Nowitzki this summer was for how little he’d re-up with the Mavs – Nowitzki was adamant last offseason that he’d finish his career in Dallas, and likely at a discounted price. But the lack of surprise accompanying Nowitzki’s deal doesn’t make its terms any less astonishing, especially considering the quietly dominant season he had in 2013-2014. Read More »
