He started his off-season by partying with his girlfriend Iggy Azalea, he threw out the first pitch at a Dodgers game, and even found time to pose with wax models. This weekend, Young celebrated his birthday with a 1990s-themed party. Read More »

Video: NBA’s Most Amazing Bench Reactions This Year

Portland Trail Blazers

It’s almost as much fun as the play involved, but the eruptions from an NBA bench can be just as delirious as some on the college level–though maybe not as coordinated as some. With that in mind, the NBA released the best bench reactions from the 2013-14 NBA season, so try and see how they compare to last season’s iteration. Read More »

Watch Robin Lopez Posterize Robert Sacre

Robin Lopez

We already showed you the ending to that crazy Blazers-Lakers game, but it wasn’t just Johnson’s lob that you have to see. Offseason acquisition Robin Lopez got a nice opportunity to smash the ball on Lakers center Robert Sacre. A baseline pass from Nicolas Batum to a cutting Lopez during Portland’s attempt to come back, resulted in a first-rate throw-down. Read More »

Rulebook Saves Lakers From Playing 4-On-5 To Finish Cavs Game

Ryan Kelly

The Los Angeles Lakers’ injury woes continued on Wednesday night, resulting in one of the most bizarre finishes in NBA history. The Lakers came into Cleveland with only eight players healthy, as Steve Nash did not dress in order to rest in the second leg of a back-to-back. Nick Young left the game during halftime after a “twisted” knee. Then, there were seven. Things just got worse from there. Read More »

How To Fix The Lakers: Keep Dwight Howard & Replace Metta World Peace With Tony Allen

Dwight Howard

With only four teams remaining in the NBA Playoffs, it means a few “contenders” have already been eliminated from title contention. The offseason is the time for these teams to retool to prepare for deeper runs next season. Last offseason brought many changes in Los Angeles.

Brooklyn Has A Massive Meltdown Against The Lakers; Houston Scores 140 Points

Kobe Bryant

As much as we want to give credit to Kobe Bryant for icing the Lakers win in Brooklyn last night, L.A. should throw the Nets a bone. Brooklyn did everything they could outside of express mailing the W to Hollywood. Down the stretch, the Nets endured a couple of bad shots from Brook Lopez – one was an ugly airball – on poorly executed plays. Then, Gerald Wallace threw away an inbounds pass. Read More »

Video: James Harden Absolutely Humiliates Robert Sacre Twice In Houston’s Win

James Harden

The Lakers’ depth at center is not good, but Tuesday night was a kind of worst-case scenario. Missing Jordan Hill, Dwight Howard and Pau Gasol meant splitting minutes between forwards Metta World Peace, Earl Clark and rookie big man Robert Sacre. Sacre bore the brunt of the odd rotation’s weaknesses most of the night in his 28 minutes, but especially when Houston’s James Harden caught him on the business end of two top-10 worthy plays.
