Watch Derrick Rose Continue Dominating With 27 Points Versus ‘Wolves

Derrick Rose

Make that 57 points in the last two games for Derrick Rose. As the Chicago Bulls superstar plays like he did against the Cleveland Cavaliers a few days ago and Minnesota Timberwolves on Friday night, it’s easy to believe that he’s capable of leading his team to a title. There’s just nothing defenses can do to stop a player of Rose’s unmatched explosion when he’s confident, aggressive, and his jumper is falling. Read More »

Come on, Tony Parker. Couldn’t you have waited to flop until the games actually mattered next week? We came all this way to the final night of preseason play with only one egregious dive! Well, actually it’s probably prudent to get in mid-season flopping form now. Watch the San Antonio Spurs’ point guard draw the whistle by embellishing contact and yelling “Hey!” upon releasing an uncontested shot. Read More »

GIF: Watch Nate Wolters Walk To Sideline, Fake Timeout, Get Easy Layup

This is a heady play by Nate Wolters. But why bust it out in a meaningless exhibition game? After the bench prompted the Milwaukee Bucks point guard to call timeout, he lulled the Minnesota Timberwolves to sleep by dribbling slowly to the sideline before darting to the lane for an uncontested layup.

Last night, at 12:12 a.m. ET on the Adult Swim network the Jordan Brand sponsored “BGCP3TV in HD” sketch comedy show premiered. Say what you want about the Clippers teammates and Jordan Brand NBA all-stars failing to reach the Western Conference Finals last season, but — as you’ll see — they’re pretty decent with the off-kilter dry humor on display in the debut.

You’re probably not familiar with Sixers camp invite, Ronald Roberts, Jr.. The four-year player out of Saint Joseph’s went undrafted in June, and he’s on the bubble to make the Philly team after getting a camp invite and suffering a quad contusion that’s kept him out of their last four games. His explosive dunk on Jonas Jerebko during preseason action last night is definitely a big point in his favor, though. Plus, this year’s Sixers squad isn’t exactly a world-beater. Read More »

Rookie defensive maven Nerlens Noel had himself a night. The future of the Philadelphia 76ers had 8 points, 8 rebounds, 5 steals, and 5 blocks in his team’s exhibition against the Detroit Pistons, showing off his wholly unique blend of disruptive tools. But you have to contest a shot to get a block or reach for a dribble to get a steal, and Pistons high-flyer Josh Smith caught a confident Noel going for the swat before taking full advantage with a wind-up lefty slam.

After all, there is a reason Dupuy has been called “The Best Dunker In The World.” Read More »

GIF: Huge Marcin Gortat Block Leads To John Wall’s Reverse, Double-Pump Slam

Of the countless attributes why basketball ranks as the world’s best game is a near constant stream of end-to-end action. There’s no waiting, players perform on both sides of the ball, and offense turns to defense and vice versa in a flash. This huge block of an Iman Shumpert dunk by Marcin Gortat and ensuing reverse, double-pump jam by John Wall is a shining example of what makes hoops – played at its highest level, too – so enthralling.

GIF: Marc Gasol Whips Curving Cross-Court Pass For Open Three-Pointer

Marc Gasol

Marc Gasol (Nelson Chenault, USATODAY)

Box scores will never do the all-encompassing impact of Memphis Grizzlies center Marc Gasol justice. The 2013 Defensive Player of the Year and former All-NBA Second Team honoree doesn’t block shots at an elite level, isn’t a super productive scorer, and fails to pull down 10 rebounds in a single game far more often than it seems he should. But Gasol is the Grizzlies’ fulcrum on both ends of the floor, yielding two-way influence similar to that of Joakim Noah’s that must be seen to be properly appreciated. Sometimes that means setting a bone-crushing pick, thwarting a pick-and-roll, or making the extra pass for a hockey assist. On occasions like this sick, cross-court, curveball pass to Quincy Pondexter in last night’s exhibition, though, Gasol’s rare and varied skill-set is plain to the naked eye. Read More »

Manu Ginobili Kicks Shot In From Beyond Mid-Court

Manu Ginobili

Spurs six man and Argentinian wing Manu Ginobili was having some at practice the other day. He was attempting to kick a basketball from beyond mid-court into the basket. This is no small feat. After an NBA camera caught one attempt bounce wildly off the backboard, Manu hit the next converting one of the best trick shots we’ve seen in a while. Read More »
