Andrew Wiggins, Greek Freak Highlight Rosters For Rising Stars Challenge

Andrew Wiggins, Giannis Antetokounmpo

All-Star Weekend’s Rising Stars Challenge is still comprised of basketball’s 20 brightest rookies and sophomores. Instead of the separate classes facing off or TNT analysts drafting the squads as in years past, though, the event is formatted differently this time around – a team of Americans versus one of international imports. The USA and World Team rosters were announced today, and the foreign-born group is mighty impressive compared to its domestic counterpart. Read More »

Video: Vince Carter Turns Back Clock For Vintage Facial Jam On Rudy Gobert

Rudy Gobert, Vince Carter

Rudy Gobert is 22. The Utah Jazz center was a mere six years-old when Vince Carter made his professional debut in 1998, dunking his way to immediate superstardom. 16 years later, Vinsanity is far more likely to come off a barrage of three-pointers than a soaring poster jam. But the 37 year-old can still get up when the occasion calls for it. To wit, this vintage facial jam over the 7-2 Frenchman that left his Memphis Grizzlies teammates and all of FexEx Forum in a frenzy. Read More »

The Utah Jazz elected against signing Enes Kanter to an extension before the Halloween deadline, effectively allowing the fourth-year big man to enter restricted free agency this summer. While there isn’t one single factor that contributed to the decision of GM Dennis Lindsey and company, the presence of backup center Rudy Gobert surely loomed larger than any other. Watch the behemoth Frenchman show off his wholly unique blend of length and athleticism by dunking on a pair of Atlanta Hawks defenders and swatting a layup into the stands just a few possessions later.
