Dunk Of The Season? Heat’s James Ennis Embarrasses Rasual Butler With Facial

James Ennis

Who needs LeBron James? Well, the Miami Heat definitely do. And while the Heat will obviously struggle to replace The King’s all-encompassing impact, it seems little-known wing James Ennis will at least produce a portion of LeBron’s epic highlights. Watch the rookie turn-in his dunk of the year submission by catching on the break and rising for an epic facial slam on the Washington Wizards’ Rasual Butler. Read More »

Of the countless attributes why basketball ranks as the world’s best game is a near constant stream of end-to-end action. There’s no waiting, players perform on both sides of the ball, and offense turns to defense and vice versa in a flash. This huge block of an Iman Shumpert dunk by Marcin Gortat and ensuing reverse, double-pump jam by John Wall is a shining example of what makes hoops – played at its highest level, too – so enthralling.

Paul Pierce

We still haven’t grown accustomed to seeing Paul Pierce in a Washington Wizards uniform. According to the Boston Celtics’ legend and former Brooklyn Net, though, watching star players don different jerseys is something with which we’ll be forced to become far more comfortable as time goes on.

GIF: Tyreke Evans Performs Impressive “Moonwalk” Travel That Goes Uncalled

Tyreke Evans, Nene

It’s hard to be an NBA ref. We try our best to give them the benefit of the doubt, but they’re often found by fans to be lacking. Last night, when Anthony Davis was busy destroying the Wizards, his teammate, Tyreke Evans, performed an egregious travel of at least four steps backwards in an impressive moonwalk display that went completely unnoticed by the refs.

Video: Anthony Davis One-Handed Put-Back Crunk Dunk

Anthony Davis

The Pelicans jumped out to a 14-point first-quarter lead against the Wizards tonight in preseason action, and pushed it to 20 by the half. The biggest reason for such a substantial margin against a playoff team like the Wiz, lies with ascending big man Anthony Davis, who played like a man among boys in his three quarters of action.

Nene, Teammates Suspended For Leaving Bench During Monday’s Pierce/Noah Spat

Nené

Suspensions surely aren’t what Paul Pierce had in mind when he recently stressed a mindset of toughness and physicality to his new Washington Wizards teammates – especially when the players in question weren’t even involved in the incident. After Nene, Dejuan Blair, Daniel Orton, and Xavier Silas left the bench while Pierce tangled with Joakim Noah during Washington’s exhibition against the Chicago Bulls on Monday, the league has suspended the Wizards quartet for the first game of the 2014-2015 regular season.

Paul Pierce Thinks The Wizards Can Make The Finals

Nene, John Wall, Bradley Beal, Paul Pierce

The Eastern Conference has been nicknamed the LEastern Conference based off the lopsided talent in favor of the West. But with LeBron James staying in the East with a new super team in Cleveland Derrick Rose back (hopefully to stay), up-and-coming teams in Toronto, Washington and Charlotte, the Phil Jackson experiment in New York, and a Heat team that’s better than many think, it’s not exactly a cakewalk to come out of the East this spring. Washington’s newest small forward, Paul Pierce, thinks his new Wiz mates have as good a chance as anyone. Read More »
