Derrick Rose was downright dominant in the first half against the Cleveland Cavaliers. The former MVP scored 20 points in the game’s first 24 minutes, including a trio of three-pointers. Most encouraging for Chicago Bulls fans, though, was surely the vintage burst and body control that he showed on two coast-to-coast finishes. Read More »

In a clip emphasizing just how talented even middling NBA journeymen are, Lakers reserve point guard Ronnie Price swipes a steal and leaves a behind-the-back pass to a streaking Wes Johnson for a lengthy poster slam.

Lance Stephenson

Frankly, we’re not too concerned with flopping. The vast majority of today’s so-called flops involve players slightly embellishing contact that would merit a whistle even without such gesticulation. It’s telling that throughout tens of exhibition games, we’ve yet to come across a play that would get the league’s millions of armchair officials calling flop. Having said that, this one from Lance Stephenson – a repeat offender – is about as bad as it gets. Read More »

Watch LeBron James Star In New “Beats By Dre” Ad Set In His Hometown Of Akron

Akron marquee

The athlete’s rags-to-riches trope is as old as sports itself, and runs parallel to the Horatio Alger-esque American Dream: If you work hard enough, anything is possible. But when you spend any time in an inner-city American ghetto, that ethos can make your skin crawl — reality doesn’t usually fit into a snug narrative like this one. But we couldn’t help get goosebumps as Gloria James narrates this new commercial for Beats by Dre starring her son, LeBron James, returning to his old Akron high school gym, now named The LeBron James Arena.

Top picks of the NBA draft Andrew Wiggins and Jabari Parker faced-off for the first time last night, but you probably don’t know it. For reasons that continue to leave us baffled, Friday night’s preseason match-up between the Minnesota Timberwolves and Milwaukee Bucks wasn’t televised – anywhere. But this is still 2014, and fans in attendance were able to capture highlights of the rookies’ (mostly meaningless) show-down. Thank god, too. We would’ve been even more upset if this absolutely sick move by Parker wasn’t caught on camera. Read More »

Watch Shaq And Vlade Divac Joke About Flopping

Vivek Ranadive, Vlade Divac, Shaquille O'Neal

Back in the day, when Shaquille O’Neal dominated the block like no other big man since Wilt Chamberlain, it was almost impossible for opposing centers to slow the Big Aristotle down. Then along came the crafty Serbian, Vlade Divac, and flopping became the defense du jour when you didn’t have enough fouls for Hack-a-Shaq. The two were back at it, but without the pressure of a playoff series, when Vlade and the Kings minority owner were joined by Kings majority owner Vivek Ranadive to look for a birthday present for Vlade at the adidas store in Beijing.
