Vince Carter's Old-Man Dunk Makes Me Happy

Let's be honest, this probably isn't a bloggable dunk if it had been done by, say, Terrence Ross or Gerald Green. A good-but-not-great dunk is a little more noteworthy, however, when it's 37-year-old Vince Carter throwing it down, showing us all that sometimes—even when you're a shell of your former self and your best… » 12/23/14 10:14am Tuesday 10:14am

Man, Did Anthony Davis Whomp The Shit Out Of The Thunder Or What

There's no one particularly SportsCenter-y highlight from Anthony Davis's 38-point, 12-rebound, three-block eruption against Oklahoma City last night. He didn't block all three shots in one leap; or tear the entire backboard off the stanchion with a dunk; or, like, spike a dead-on-arrival Kendrick Perkins jumphook… » 12/22/14 12:42pm Monday 12:42pm

Sacramento Kings Shockingly Fire Coach Mike Malone

Uhh, what? Adrian Wojnarowski has reported that the Sacramento Kings have fired head coach Mike Malone, a move that hadn't even been hinted at. Malone was hired at the beginning of last season, and was tasked with returning the Kings to the playoffs. He seemed to be well on his way, developing a rapport with star… » 12/15/14 1:11am 12/15/14 1:11am

High School Snaps 84-Game Losing Streak In Double OT Playing 3 v. 5

The Climax-Fisher High School (Minnesota) girls basketball team packed a whole lot into their 62-58 victory over Bagley High School on Tuesday.

Blake Griffin Was His Old Bad-Ass Self Last Night

One of the crappier things about the early part of this NBA season is that for much of it, Blake Griffin hasn't really looked like Blake Griffin. Too many Clippers games have seen Griffin floating around the perimeter, turning in uninspiring performances heavy on the mid-range jumpers and light on the dunks. But last… » 12/09/14 2:54pm 12/09/14 2:54pm

The Golden State Warriors Still Love The CoCo (On The Low Low)

Yesterday, we learned that the Golden State Warriors were no longer allowed to celebrate victories by singing along to O.T. Genasis's head-knocking drug anthem, "CoCo." But judging by Steph Curry's latest Instagram post, pictured above, the team isn't letting the fun-hating puritans who rained on their parade get the… » 12/09/14 9:41am 12/09/14 9:41am

John Wall Destroyed The Lakers Last Night

Kobe Bryant and Nick Young hit a bunch of fluky long jumpers in a row during the second quarter of the Lakers' game in DC last night; with around six minutes left in the half they led by 11 points, and if you saw the score (47-36) crawl across the bottom of your screen just then, you might've thought, Damn, they're… » 12/04/14 1:22pm 12/04/14 1:22pm

Andre Miller Throws Some Classic Old-Man Game At The Heat, Scores

Andre Miller is 941 years old and has been in the NBA longer than it has existed; his first career assist, as a matter of fact, was a pocket bounce-pass to a rolling Chester Arthur for a two-handed jam. In all the years since, Gramps has learned a few tricks to augment his nonexistent athleticism, and he whipped out a… » 12/01/14 9:46pm 12/01/14 9:46pm
