Watch Jack Nicholson And Adam Sandler Dismissively Leave Another Crappy…

It's an all too common trope to declare that one specific moment somehow encapsulates a team's entire season, but this one specific moment somehow encapsulates the Lakers' entire season: Jack Nicholson, himself an aging star that provides less and less on return as he gets older, sarcastically waving goodbye and… » 1/12/13 11:10am 1/12/13 11:10am

LeBron James Has Committed Two Fouls In His Last 299 Minutes Of Court…

If you've played even rec-league basketbal, you know that desperate, flailing fouls are often the last resort of an overmatched defender. Despite an arsenal of chase-down blocks and consistent efforts to lock up the other team's best player, LeBron James essentially never finds himself in that position, and what looks… » 12/23/12 9:45am 12/23/12 9:45am

Doug Collins Bought 18,000 Big Macs Last Night

Every time the 76ers score over 100 points or more, each fan in attendance at the Wells Fargo center gets a free Big Mac. Last night, Doug Collins's team got the ball back with just under 24 seconds left in the game, up on the Hawks 99-80. The conundrum: going for the points could seem like showing up the other team;… » 12/22/12 12:55pm 12/22/12 12:55pm

With Their Name Change Looming, The New Orleans Hornets Have Also…

It is, by now, established that if and when the New Orleans Hornets change their name to the Pelicans, they'll have one of the best mascots in the league. Feisty, local, unique—its got everything you'd want in a mascot, and the Pelicans will rocket to the top of the standings based on their team name alone. New… » 12/22/12 11:30am 12/22/12 11:30am

Daryl Morey Made By Far The Most Transactions In His Fantasy Football…

Via the Twitter of Daryl Morey—God bless him, he has a sense of humor about the whole thing—comes this scorecard from his season of fantasy football. Daryl Morey is the GM of two teams: the Houston Rockets (a basketball franchise) and the Morey Eels (a fantasy football franchise). One of the jobs, he's supposedly very… » 12/15/12 3:15pm 12/15/12 3:15pm

Kevin Durant Memorialized Sandy Hook Last Night With A Message On His…

It must be hard for professional athletes to figure out to respond to national tragedies like the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary yesterday. In times of national mourning, sports can seem pretty starkly trivial, and the juxtaposition between the day's news and the night's sporting events has a way of making us… » 12/15/12 9:20am 12/15/12 9:20am

The Suns Will Give You Your Money Back If You Don't Have "Fun" And The…

Neither the Bobcats nor the Suns are particularly woebegone NBA teams in strictly basketball terms—the Bobcats are enjoying perhaps their best start ever, sitting pretty at 7-8 having already equaled their win total from last season, while the Suns are a scrappy 7-10 with a rebuilding roster. If you focus on the… » 12/02/12 11:00am 12/02/12 11:00am

LeBron James And Lamar Odom Diplomatically Imply That Kobe Bryant Got…

LeBron James—former pupil of Mike Brown in Cleveland, and sometime teammate, sometime rival of Kobe Bryant, doesn't think Mike Brown got "a fair shake" in Los Angeles. James said to ESPN, "I've got a lot to say, but I'm not going to say it right now," before his interview was cut off by a Miami PR person, but he… » 11/10/12 5:50pm 11/10/12 5:50pm
