What better way to celebrate the GOAT’s 50th birthday than to watch the best players in the world take turns dunking on each other? The midseason classic is here, the NBA All-Star Game, and I’ll be here all night live blogging the proceedings from inside of the Toyota Center in Houston. Read More »

As ballplayers, we all have a natural instinct to entertain. It’s fun to play to the crowd and throw up some three goggles after a deep trey every now and then – even if the majority of us aren’t collecting checks with a mini Jerry West logo stamped on ‘em.
In Los Angeles, entertainers of another breed are getting their own weekly hoop fix inside of a private gym just east of Santa Monica, in the E League. Read More »
In case you were unaware, adidas Originals is doin’ it big this fall with some amazing releases and an amazing campaign to go with ‘em. With that, watch Dwight Howard and Josh Smith alongside the likes of Big Sean and Snoop Dogg. And make sure you check after the jump for some more footage of D-Howard and J-Smoove.
Each summer the Goodman League in Washington, D.C. hosts NBA stars and streetball legends as one of the most well-known summer leagues in the country. Across the United States in Los Angeles, the Drew League does virtually the same.

So when Durant put on another show, but this time in the Drew League and not the Goodman League last month, he raised a question: Which league is better? Read More »

On Thursday, we told you about rolling VIP with Snoop Dogg during All-Star Weekend. And for those of you that did, you probably know that Snoop’s squad took home the title at the inaugural adiHOOP 3-on-3. (The “West Coasters” featured Snoop, Game and Chris Brown, and were coached by Matt Barnes.) Ken Jeong (a.k.a. Slim Chin) and DJ Neil Armstrong were also in the house, as well as Serge Ibaka, Jrue Holiday, Wesley Johnson and Toney Douglas. Check out the recap below:
The second half was just for sh*ts and giggles. You don’t expect that in the NBA Finals, where the two best teams in the League should be peaking in terms of chemistry, execution and physicality, but that’s what happened in Game 6. The Lakers jumped on the Celtics right away, leading by 10 at the end of the first quarter, 20 at halftime, and the second half was merely a formality. In a post-game interview, Lamar Odom put it best: “We weren’t ready to die,” L.O. said. The Lakers saw their gravestone going into the must-win game and reacted like any fighter would … Read More »
Remember Terry Tate, Office Linebacker? One of my favorite ad campaigns of all-time has been replicated by one of my favorite people of all-time, Gary Payton. The Glove is going to appear on the “Sports Soup” 2009 Countup Countdown show, airing Dec. 20 at 10 p.m. EST on Versus. He’ll join host Snoop Dogg, plus Manu Ginobili will also be involved. Here’s a sample of what’s in store:
