Dion Waiters Gets His Car Filled With Popcorn: A Look at the NBA’s Most Popular Prank

dion waiters popcorn

For some reason, one of the NBA’s go-to rookie hazing pranks is filling a player’s car with popcorn. I mean, it was funny the first few times we saw it, but now we’ve seen it over and over again for years. Why no one will mix it up is beyond me, but whatever, the guys seem to really love it (and I get it that popcorn won’t actually damage the car).

The latest to get the treatment is Cavs rookie Dion Waiters, who got popcorn’d over the weekend and posted the aftermath on his instagram feed. Read More »

NBA’s Top 10 Active Journeymen

Stephen Jackson

According to the Oxford Dictionaries, a “journeyman” is known as “a worker or sports player who is reliable but not outstanding.” In the NBA, this title is used frequently to describe a player that has bounced around the league and struggled to find long-term real estate. While some of the NBA’s elite journeyman have put up All-Star numbers, they often have not received All-Star recognition. Read More »

Fantasy Basketball: The Week’s Best Pickups (11.26)

Aaron Brooks

FRESH PICKINGS: Aaron Brooks (10 percent owned in Yahoo!, 1 percent owned in ESPN) It looks like the Kings’ point guard situation is finally resolving itself, with Aaron Brooks leading the pack of late. After a clunker in his first start against Brooklyn, he has averaged 14.3 points, 2.6 assists and 2.6 threes per game. He’s never going to dominate any defensive stats and he may sometimes tank your field goal percentage, but it was just three seasons ago when Brooks was a hot commodity in fantasy, pouring in 19.6 points on 2.5 threes per game for the Houston Rockets. He is well worth a speculative add. Read More »

Fantasy Basketball: The Week’s Best Pickups (11.19)

Jason Richardson

FRESH PICKINGS: Jason Richardson (64 percent owned in Yahoo, 39 percent owned in ESPN) Although he is an old 31 years old with a recent history of knee problems, the trusty vet has been coming on strong after missing four games with an ankle sprain. Over his last four, Richardson is averaging 16.3 points with 3.6 treys, 4.3 rebounds and 1.6 steals. He may not be the most reliable over the long haul, but when healthy, J-Rich can give you the upper hand in rebound and block totals with his shooting guard eligibility. Read More »

Video: Jason Richardson Shows He’s Still Got It, Throws Down A 360 Dunk

Jason Richardson

Jason Richardson took us back to 2003 with this 360 dunk in Philly last night. He didn’t get up the same way he used to, but hey, at least we know the guy can still do it at 31. He wasn’t half bad with the rest of his game either, scoring 20 points. Read More »

Dwight Howard Deal To L.A. Is Done; The U.S. Hits The Semis

Dwight Howard

Is this End of Dwightmare Eve? Could the league’s best center — who also leads the NBA in being publicly disgruntled — actually be leaving for Laker pastures? It’s almost a near certainty that by this time tomorrow, Howard will be readying for his official debut as a member of the Los Angeles Lakers’ storied tradition of centers. Wilt, Kareem and Shaq also arrived at Los Angeles from another stop elsewhere, and all went on to next-level careers in the purple and gold. It’s time to introduce the wet blanket on this party in Lakerland, however: “IF.” Read More »

Dime Q&A: Jus Fly On His Best Slams & His 5 Favorite NBA Dunkers

Jus Fly

The highlight of this year’s World Basketball Festival, for me, might’ve been wear testing the craziest technology I’ve ever seen in a sneaker (the Nike Lunar Hyperdunk 2012), sitting front row along the baseline for Team USA’s intrasquad scrimmage or perhaps even chilling in a suite with the people at Nike for the USA/Brazil exhibition game. Or, I could just say it was watching Justin Darlington aka Jus Fly dunk because honestly, that might’ve topped everything. Read More »

The Knicks Control Their Destiny; Kevin Durant Closes In On The Scoring Title

J.R. Smith

We know Randy Foye dropped 15 in the third quarter and was doing work all night for the Clippers (28 points), but still L.A., here’s some advice: don’t go to him with the game on the line. Foye had a pass deflected off the backboard in the final seconds for a turnover, and then threw up an air ball. The Clippers had raced back after trailing by as many as 18, and even though the man once traded for Brandon Roy‘s knees was at the center of that, you’d think they would’ve gone somewhere else to avoid what ultimately became a six-point Knick win.
