Last night, Boise State looked to have beaten Colorado State University on an incredible shot by James Webb III with just 0.8 seconds left to play. Pretty amazing shot, right? It looks even better in slow motion:
Most dives are fine. Some dives are bad. But few dives are so egregious that you skip over the whole “Should the player get a yellow for that?” logic and instead head right to the barn for the pitchfork. Valencia youth teamer David Pascual pulled off one of those:
What inspired Maude Perchey of Rouen and Bordeaux’s Eva Sumo to cease competing against one another within the strictures of soccer’s rule book and instead elect to get into some gangsta shit, we don’t know. What we do know is that Perchey throws punches like she’s trying to decapitate her opponent, and Sumo appears…
If you can’t tell from the angle above, that is Liverpool’s Christian Benteke bearing down on West Ham’s goalkeeper in extra time of their FA Cup replay. If you know anything about the striker in question, you can guess what happened next:
The Rockets’ pick-and-roll defense is apparently, uh, no pick-and-roll defense? At least Corey Brewer got in there and did a swipe. This isn’t as bad as that one time James Harden just sort of froze against the Knicks, but geez.
Liverpool fans planned and executed a 77th minute walkout from today’s game against Sunderland to protest ticket prices getting increases up to £77, and apparently, their team decided to join them in protest, so they laid down and let Sunderland of all teams roar back and tie them 2-2.
The Los Angeles Lakers won tonight (!), their second in a row (!!), on the back of a great game from Kobe Bryant (!!!). Old man Kobe had 27 points, and not a single turnover. He, of course, shot 10-for-24, but hey, it’s Kobe, that’s what you’re gonna get.
It’s time again for us to make fun of the Clippers’ J.J. Redick, who today blew a bunny during L.A.’s home matchup with the Bulls. We imagine you’ll enjoy this, simply that even nine years into his pro career Redick is still the most hated player in college basketball.
Toupalik would sprint, again, and lose when they came back around for the real finish.
Hey, even the King has an off-moment now and then.
Poor Bradley Beal, and poor Wizards, who dropped to 20-24 with their 117-113 loss at home to the Nuggets.
Are you ready for this shit? I don’t think you’re ready for this shit. Okay, sit down, put this video on full screen, and make sure you have a cigarette handy. You’re going to need it after watching these mind-blowing highlights.
The Suns beat the Hawks yesterday, but only after the two teams decided to take a break from basketball to just kind of run around like a bunch of puppies in the snow.
Rockets center/power forward Clint Capela has developed into a nice young player, but that won’t prevent him from appearing on Shaqtin’ a Fool this week.
It’s not even a month into the season yet and already Apostolos Vellios has to feel good about his chances of taking home the Anti-Puskás Award with this literally unbelievable miss. For all our sake, I hope nobody tops this.
Blair Walsh blew a short field goal that would have most likely won today’s Vikings-Seahawks game. Instead, he missed wide left and Seattle escaped with a 10-9 win. They have Carolina next week, in what should be a warmer climate.
Kentucky won today’s SEC basketball battle in Tuscaloosa today 77-61, but it was the Crimson Tide that contributed to the college basketball corpus of literature as forward Jimmie Taylor introduced a new way of boxing out defenders to secure the offensive rebound. Despite this innovation, Taylor was whistled for a…
Dirk Nowitzki is old as hell. He’s still great, mind you, but he’s very, very old. So old, in fact, that he’s out here getting stuffed by rim despite being seven feet tall.
