GIF: Giannis Antetokounmpo Flushes It On Shawne Williams — Plus The Foul

Giannis Antetokounmpo

Milwaukee’s young stud Giannis Antetokounmpo, a.k.a. “The Greek Freak,” is a bit of an anomaly as a player. At 6-11, the 19-year-old forward/guard hybrid has the length and wingspan of a big, the athleticism of a wing, and the handle of a point guard. More often than not, he is a nightmare for opponents to match up against, and his growing game is an absolute pleasure for fans to watch, especially when he attacks the rim. Read More »

Video: Dwayne Wade’s Post-Whistle Bounce Shot Might Mean He’s A Warlock

Dwyane Wade

Often, when the whistle blows to stop a play in the NBA, a player might continue his motion and take that jumper he was all set for, continue driving for a layup, or throw down a dunk. Dwayne Wade added something only a magician could conjure after the whistle last night in the second quarter of Miami’s eventual loss to undefeated Houston. Read More »

Dwyane Wade Is “Moving On” From LeBron James In Stirring New Video Mix

Dwyane Wade, LeBron James, Lance Stephenson

Maybe it’s Ed Sheeran‘s hokey voice on “I see fire,” the hyperbolic narration by Stephen A. Smith, or the highlights of Dwyane Wade, but despite the mawkishness, this new mix by David Golic does an excellent job summarizing this transitional period in Wade’s career, his emphasis on being a dad, the loss of LeBron James this summer, and moving on this season.

Warriors’ Klay Thompson, Heat’s Chris Bosh Named Players Of The Week

Klay Thompson, Chris Bosh

Klay Thompson and Chris Bosh are playing under heightened expectations in 2014-2015. After scoring a four-year, max-level extension on Friday, the 24 year-old Golden State Warriors sharpshooter is charged with playing like one of the best wings in basketball. And no longer in the shadow of LeBron James, the All-Star lefty must resume the alpha dog status he sacrificed four years ago for the Miami Heat to remain an Eastern Conference contender. If their play in the first few games of the regular season is any indication, Thompson and Bosh won’t have any trouble living in brighter spotlights. The pair were named Players of the Week in their respective conferences after leading the Warriors and Heat to undefeated records. Read More »

Dan Le Batard Mocks Cavs And LeBron On Twitter

LeBron James

New uniforms, new court, the NBA’s best player returning to his hometown to play in a nationally televised home debut while a coterie of all-stars surround him. Check, check, check and check. Still, the Knicks played spoiler last night, 95-90 on TNT, when LeBron James and the Cavs came out flat to start the 2014-15 NBA season. As a result, Miami sports columnist and radio host Dan Le Batard, a frequent LeBron and Cavs foil ever since Decision 2.0 was announced, exhibited quite a bit of schadenfreude on Twitter during and after Cleveland’s stunning opening home loss.
