Gone are the days where two NBA teams who straight-up didn’t like each other could get together and elevate their rivalry with a brawl. Good riddance. Those who enjoy watching titans inflict pain on each other can find plenty of other vices to quench their thirst for violence. In fact, there are entire weekends devoted to it, with the college and professional rankings of football dedicated to humans crashing into each other and hoping they hurt their opponent as much as they want to hurt them.

In the past two years, LeBron James has not only solidified his label as the best basketball player on the planet right now, but also as a champion and as one of the greatest to play.
After knocking off the Oklahoma City Thunder and San Antonio Spurs in his past two NBA Finals series, James has moved himself up the pyramid as one of the all-time greatest in NBA history. It’s no question he ranks in the top 25 among the greatest NBA players ever. Some may even says he’s already top 15, or even top 10. Read More »
Allen Iverson is hanging up his NBA jersey for good. Yes, he hasn’t played since February of 2010 with Philadelphia, but still, most of his biggest fans were waiting for the Answer to get one final shot. Instead, he won’t be going out on his own terms. Read More »
I truly love everything about this video. Setting: 1997 NBA All-Star Game in the Eastern Conference locker room. Watch as Dikembe Mutombo talks trash to Michael Jordan‘s face about how in ‘Dik’s six years in the NBA, MJ has never dunked on him. Mutombo calls in in Scottie Pippen (who is apparently “The Decider” of all things MJ-related) to back him up.
You can guess what happens a few weeks later. Read More »
Here we go. With an anti-LeBron James sentiment stronger than we have seen in years (the negative comments, Twitter and Facebook reactions to THIS today and this monster from Monday put it on full display), we wonder how this one is going to go over.
Speaking at a Microsoft store opening in Miami, Alonzo Mourning was hit with the inevitable LeBron vs. Michael Jordan comparison question. ‘Zo sent his guy Scottie Pippen right up the river with his answer: Read More »

With the NBA Playoffs quickly approaching, the chase for the Larry O’Brien is about to jump into high gear. The teams in the East are set, but they are still jostling for positioning (unless you’re the Miami Heat). In the West, seven of the eight teams are set with it coming down to the wire between the Utah Jazz and Los Angeles Lakers for the No. 8 spot. The Heat have proven all year long that they are the team to beat when the second season comes around and will definitely have a very good chance of repeating as champs. Read More »
Back in our previous lives at HoopsTV.com, I was borderline obsessed with finding what I considered to be the Holy Grail of basketball footage: video of an 18-year old then-unknown-to-American basketball named Dirk Nowitzki lighting up an NBA all-star team on an exhibition tour in Europe back in 1997. And not just any NBA all-star team; this one featured Michael Jordan, Scottie Pippen and Charles Barkley, among others. Read More »

What makes NBA games so special and electrifying are the epic in-game dunks. Of course, we love the flashy passing and heart wrenching buzzer-beaters, but to be capsulated in a moment where someone gets posterized is beyond blissful. Let’s start by saying shout out to Brandon Knight as he valiantly didn’t give up on the play last night when he could have. He could have dodged DeAndre Jordan and let Lob City get away with another alley-oop. He didn’t. It’s okay. Read More »

This was originally posted on our basketball video site HouseofHighlights.com the other day, but since we got a great response to it, we thought we’d pop it here as well. Enjoy…
I’m not going to lie, I was laughing my ass off going through these videos. No way Dennis Rodman gets away with any of this stuff if he was playing today. Not a chance.
There’s more out there, but here are Rodman’s Greatest Hits. Read More »
Scottie Pippen (photo. Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame)
Scottie Pippen has to be the greatest player ever to play in the NBA… who never got his name written right. Remember this? The dude was inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame and yet we don’t even know how to correctly spell his name. Read More »
