Dr. Funk & The Rise Of The Roswell Rayguns

Vince Carter

Although stacked “super teams” are becoming the new norm in today’s NBA (see: Miami Heat, Los Angeles Lakers, Brooklyn Nets, Oklahoma City Thunder, Boston Celtics), the notion that so many veritable basketball superstars could play together in a regular season game was, quite literally, fiction a decade ago.

The Best $9 Million The Brooklyn Nets Ever Spent

Josh Childress

We all know the Nets made moves this summer — both literally and figuratively. Even those who paid just minimal attention are aware of the Joe Johnson acquisition, the re-signings of Deron Williams, Brook Lopez and Gerald Wallace, and the big move to Brooklyn. What those who paid just minimal attention may not have noticed, however, is what the Nets were able to do between July 11th and September 11th. Read More »

The Top 5 Times Jerry Stackhouse Beat Down A NBA Player

Jerry Stackhouse

I’m not sure what we’d do without the Internet. In past generations, they had the newspaper and Sunday afternoon matinees. Now, we have forum threads, we have Twitter, ESPN, rumor wires, we have pretty much everything. It’s easy to spread gossip. If you’ve been hanging around the Interwebs for a while, then you’ve probably heard tremors about what I’m going to tell you: Jerry Stackhouse is a bad mother. Some NBA players are known for being crazy (Ron Artest/Metta World Peace). Others are known for rolling super deep (Stephen Jackson/Chris Mills). Then you have a guy like Charles Oakley, who gets a category all to himself. But Stack might be one of the few everyone knows you don’t mess with. Read More »

Video: Jerry Stackhouse Gets Dunked On At The NC Pro-Am Again

P.J. Hairston

Who remembers a young(er) John Wall coming down the lane at the NC Pro-Am, and smashing all over Jerry Stackhouse‘s business? This time, it was P.J. Hairston – a current UNC player – getting the best of Stackhouse – a former UNC player – at the rim. We hope no one is trying to show up one of the newest Brooklyn Nets, though. Ask Jeff Hornacek what happens when you step to Stack. Read More »

Kobe Says Team USA Would Beat The Dream Team; Nets Move On Without Dwight Howard

Nike Basketball Innovation: Kobe Bryant

It’s that time of year again, or rather, that time of year that comes around once every four years when the same question is asked and we have to converse on the same debate. Could this Team USA beat the original Dream Team, the only Dream Team that really counts? With so many bodies hitting the floor – Derrick Rose, Dwight Howard, Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh, etc., etc. – that they should come out to Drowning Pool this year, we thought this might’ve been the first year we didn’t have to hear someone drop the bomb. Of course, it had to come from Kobe Bryant. Read More »

Breaking News: Duke vs. North Carolina Alumni Game Scheduled

Duke vs. North Carolina

While all the NBA exhibition and charity games during the lockout have been great, there’s been one element missing: school pride. So if guys can put on for their city or their team, the next logical step for them was clearly to put on for their alma mater. And it only makes sense that one of the most heated and storied rivalries in sports kick things off. Read More »

Jerry Stackhouse’s Lost Season

Jerry Stackhouse

During the 2000-01 season, Jerry Stackhouse scored at least 20 points in 73 of the 80 games he suited up for. He played at least 40 minutes in over two thirds of those games, and had just two nights all season where he took less than 17 shots. The dude averaged 29.8 points a game – better than Shaq, better than Kobe, better than Vince – and led the entire league in total points. So why doesn’t anyone remember this? Read More »

Top 5 Available NBA Free Agents

Leon Powe

With the trade deadline having come and gone last Thursday, you may be wondering why there has been a flood of NBA activity going on the past few days. Today is the deadline for players to be released from their contracts (whether that is bought out or waived) and still be able to appear in the playoffs for another team. The first domino to fall was Troy Murphy, who according to ESPN.com’s Marc Stein chose the Celtics over the Heat. But who’s next? With that, here are the Top 5 available NBA free agents on the market right now. Read More »

Iverson Can’t Go Out Like This

Allen Iverson

So with the Brett Favre ending his NFL iron man streak and Cliff Lee signing with the Phillies (which I’m loving, by the way) dominating the headlines lately, I felt a little sports overkill. This all changed when I learned my childhood hardwood idol would be playing and I could catch him online.

That’s right, Allen Iverson, who has had his share of troubles this year, would be playing for his Turkish club team Besiktas for the world to see. This excitement quickly diminished into disappointment upon hearing news of A.I. sitting out because of an ankle injury. Read More »
