Video: Manu Ginobili Drive and Two-Hand Dunk in Game 3

Every now and then, Manu Ginobili will time warp back to his Kinder Bologna days (when he was considered to be one of the most explosive athletes in the Euroleague) and put one on somebody. Remember this dunk he put on the Golden State Warriors in the playoffs?

He uncorked a very Manu-esque one on a drive in the first quarter of Game 3 tonight: Read More »

This Carmelo Anthony Stat Will Blow Your Mind

Carmelo Anthony

Let’s start by putting this in some kind of perspective: Carmelo Anthony took his last shot of the season back on May 18th when his Knicks were eliminated from the NBA Playoffs by the Indiana Pacers. Since that last game, a full round+ of the NBA Playoffs has taken place, with one of those series – Heat vs. Pacers – going a full seven games. [Find out how 'Melo literally ended up on a poster at Roy Hibbert's house.]

Roy Hibbert Publicly Thanks Miami’s Big Three For Making Him A Better Player

Roy Hibbert

One of the best things about this year’s NBA Playoffs has been the handful of players who seemed to make the leap on the game’s biggest stage. Guys like Stephen Curry and Paul George – clearly already rising stars – took their games to a whole new level in these playoffs, setting the stage for their path to uber stardom in the very near future.

One guy who also showed flashes of greatness was Pacers center Roy Hibbert. There were times where he realized that he can completely dominate the paint against the NBA’s best. If that’s something he can do on a semi-consistent basis? He’ll be one of the top centers in the NBA. But he’s not there just yet. Read More »

Dwyane Wade Teaches You How to do the Euro Step

dwyane wade euro step

Dwyane Wade picked a pretty great time to remember how to play basketball, didn’t he? After what seemed like weeks of asking, “What’s up with Wade?” he blew up in Game 7 against the Pacers. He looked like a completely different guy; suddenly his explosiveness and aggressiveness came surging back … there was no way Indiana could deal with that and LeBron.

The play that best symbolizes Wade’s resurgence has to be this massive Euro Step and dunk on the break in the first half. This morning we remembered this video from last where Dwyane breaks down exactly how to do his move. Good stuff: Read More »

Video: The LeBron James Statue of Liberty 360 Dunk in Pregame Warmups

Because this game has devolved into a mess that hasn’t really been competitive since sometime in the first half, we are left with A) Watching everyone (rightly) make fun of Justin Bieber or B) Highlights of the game before it was a beating.

Check out LeBron James (aka The Master of Pregame Dunks) and his 360 Statue of Liberty layup line dunk: Read More »
