Are you serious? Word just broke that University of Memphis forward D.J. Stephens recorded an NBA Draft record 46-INCH VERTICAL LEAP in combine testing. And the dude is 6-5, so it’s not like he’s some crazy Nate Robinson clone or something.

Here are his 18 dimes in one quick reel – the wraparound pass to Tiago Splitter at the 1:40 mark is just crazy: Read More »
This was karma. Anytime someone flops as badly as Tony Allen did during the closing minutes of regulation, a ridiculous act that ended up netting Memphis four key points, they don’t deserve to win. San Antonio opened up an 18-point lead in the third quarter, fell asleep for what seemed like an hour in real time, and then reemerged to dominate the closing minutes of an overtime littered with bad Jerryd Bayless decisions.

I truly love everything about this video. Setting: 1997 NBA All-Star Game in the Eastern Conference locker room. Watch as Dikembe Mutombo talks trash to Michael Jordan‘s face about how in ‘Dik’s six years in the NBA, MJ has never dunked on him.

DeJuan Blair played all of five minutes during San Antonio’s 105-83 blowout of Memphis in Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals on Sunday afternoon. But he made the most of his time. Both of his buckets were SportsCenter-worthy. One was a running tip-in that he somehow made even while falling out of bounds. The other was a spin move, up-n-under flip shot that you used to practice on your five-foot Nerf hoop. Read More »

This might not be the prettiest basketball game we’ve ever seen, but it’s great nonetheless. This play symbolizes the slugfest: Carmelo Anthony spins baseline on Paul George and looks to have an easy dunk in the fourth quarter of a tight game. Roy Hibbert slides over and completely stuffs him at the rim. Playoff basketball in full effect: Read More »
