The 20 Best Signature Moves In NBA History

Rajon Rondo

When you are playing basketball, there is always that time when you catch yourself imitating a move one of your favorite players did. I can remember when I was younger trying to imitate Jamal Crawford‘s shake-n-bake move, a move he usually pulls off on a fast break when he will dribble the ball behind his back and bring it back around as fast as he can, losing his defender. Let’s just say it did not work out for me (reason No. 76 why I am a writer). Read More »

The 20 Most Marketable NBA Players Ever

Penny Hardaway

As basketball continues to grow as a globalized sport, NBA players are raking in more endorsements and more opportunities than ever before. While NBA players get paid millions to play the game of basketball, some make most of their money off endorsements and business ventures/partnerships with companies. It is the only reason we see Kobe Bryant endorsing a Turkish airline, taking selfies around the world with soccer great Lionel Messi. Read More »

With All-Stars like LeBron James, Kobe Bryant and Dwight Howard running the league from an attention standpoint, it’s hard to argue that high schoolers can’t make the successful jump to the NBA.

The Art Of The Revenge Game: Jrue Holiday & Former Philly Stars

Jrue Holiday

As a fan of the Philadelphia 76ers, I’ve seen it all. I’ve seen Allen Iverson carry this team to the NBA Finals on his own back. I’ve seen Andre Iguodala nail two free throws to carry the Sixers to the second round of the NBA Playoffs for the first time since 2003. I’ve also seen Jrue Holiday blossom from an unknown youngster from UCLA to an All-Star point guard. While I’ve seen the ups, the downs have also been unavoidable. All three of these All-Stars had illustrious beginnings with the Sixers, only to see them comeback in a different uniform and have a memorable homecoming. Read More »

Q96 Crossover & Crossing Guard  (photo. Reebok)

Reebok combined performance and style with the Q96, so it makes sense they’d have interesting colorway schemes. Guard Gerald Green rocks the “crossing guard” orange to match his southwest Suns and Jason Terry matches the “crossover” black, white and stadium red with Brooklyn’s basic HOVA-inspired black/white uniform.

50 Best Nicknames In NBA History

Larry Bird, Magic Johnson

“Once you gain a nickname in this league, that’s the ultimate respect”Paul Pierce

In many cases, what Pierce said was true (see what I did there?). Many guys on this list earned their nicknames for great play on the court, and by no coincidence most of the best players in the history of the league appear on this list. Others earned their nicknames from funny commercials or movies, while still more earned them for just funny looks. We stayed away from shortening of names like “T-Mac” and “J-Kidd” or initials like “KJ,” focusing simply on the best nicknames. Read More »
