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.
There’s something about the game of soccer that turns (presumably) otherwise mild-mannered, law-abiding citizens into raving madmen. Players, fans, refs, even club officials often lose their minds when anywhere near a stadium. Here are our posts from 2015 documenting this curious sociological phenomenon.
You know that uncomfortable moment when you discover that what you’d thought was all fun and games was actually deadly serious for one guy, and all of a sudden shit’s all weird and fraught? Kobe Bryant is that guy. Last night he turned a silly little tug-of-war over a two-for-one opportunity into the goddamn kumite.
Kirk Cousins responded to a week of positive coverage, for once, by committing a huge blunder. His boner cost Washington a chance to get points; by inexplicably taking a knee with six seconds remaining, time ran out on the half—denying the Skins a shot at a quick touchdown and even the subsequent field goal…
Liverpool beat Leicester City 1-0 at Anfield today, holding the league’s most surprising team scoreless for the first time all season. But it should have been a 2-0 victory, as a late open goal break somehow fell apart when Christian Benteke couldn’t find a net left vacant by Kasper Schmeichel. Schmeichel had gone…
