Stephen Curry is a beast on the court (he did drop 40 last night on the Clippers in a thrilling come from behind win). His dad also used to be a beast on the court as well. So here they are, father and son, playing a game of horse.
NBA legend and current TNT analysis Charles Barkely says 25 years ago the Warriors, and specifically Stephen Curry, would just get beat up. The game has changed and nowadays you can’t even look at an opposing player cockeyed without getting hit with a technical. I miss the old days…
Everyone loves photobombs right?

Remember that one brief moment in time when you were athletic? It usually happened around late high school before college partying made you all fat and squishy. I was actually able to dunk at one point (I know, it’s almost not believable) but I was never able to jump and touch the top of the f**king backboard like Texas freshman Kerwin Roach.
Here’s footage from the Mo-Cap session for NBA2K16 and it’s pretty damn impressive.
Watch this awesome video of the best 100 dunks of all time and get psyched for basketball season!
Last night Colbert took on Curry in a Stephen VS Stephen shootout (with dirty laundry) to find out who should be the number 1 search result on google. This whole “Stephen VS Stephen” title reminded me of the classic “Even Stephen” segment on The Daily Show so for no reason at all here’s that because it was some of the best TV ever:
I haven’t played an NBA Live game in a while but if there’s glitches like this in it I might have to start playing again. Glitches can be annoying but are more often than not the best part of the game. I’ve covered this before with this hilarious Madden glitch, this The Witcher glitch, and this FIFA 16 glitch.
What were you doing at 13? Were you throwing down monster dunks? Because this kid is.
From the YouTube description:
“Wendell Moore is an amazingly talented 6’4 prospect from the Class of 2019. At only 13 years old he is ranked among the best players in the country. Wendell will graduate high school at 17 years old and he’s been tearing up the AAU scene for years now with his CP3 teammates (formerly Carolina Preps). Moore has been part of a CP3 team that has won three straight AAU National Championships. He has already received letters from North Carolina and Duke. Despite many of his counterparts in the Class of 2019 being at least a year older than him, Wendell is still considered to be a Top 5 prospect in the class with potential to be the #1 player in the country when things are all said and done.”
This is Gerald Green (currently plays guard for the Miami Heat) getting his head above the rim with what looks like absolutely no effort at all. If you remember he won the dunk contest in 2007:
Screw it, let’s just watch some in game dunk highlights while we’re at it (I desperately want basketball to start…)
Pau Gasol has always annoyed the s**t out of me because of his flopping. I know he’s a great player but c’mon dude, enough with the screaming and flopping around. The only Gasol I like is the “getting dunked on by Blake Griffin” Gasol.
I don’t know the context of this video but that doesn’t really matter. The only thing that matters is Mr. Wiggins should stick to basketball and cut this rapping business out.
This guy might just be my new personal hero. Also they probably broke up on the way home from the game.
Here’s a montage of some of the best poster dunks in the NBA. Why can’t it be basketball season yet!? At least the NFL season starts tomorrow.
I think the cameraman had the hardest job in this video.
Monday mornings suck so make it a little better by watching the best dunks of last season.
This is “The Haka” and it’s New Zealand’s ritual dance being performed before game 1 at the 2015 FIBA Oceania Championship against Australia.
Peep some of the best game-rituals around the NBA! https://t.co/pnBjO8E9hP

The music in this video is pretty lame but it’s still enough to make me wish it was basketball season again. Of course this being from the NBA there’s way more Lebron stuff in here than anyone else. I’d love to see an NBA all-time rituals mix, because some rituals are so bad they’re…well bad, but at least entertaining:
Reggie Miller was recently asked on the Dan Patrick Show if he’d pick Larry Bird in his prime or Lebron James in his prime. Our man reggie picked the Bird-man over the flopper…I mean the King, whatever you want to call him. I might be biased here because I am a “Lebron hater” but that doesn’t mean I’m agreeing with Reggie just because of that. Let’s check the stats:

Larry Bird’s ahead on almost evert stat (although not by much), and that’s when the league was much more physical and not as flop-a-licious as it is today. Again, full disclosure, I do hate Lebron James. But that doesn’t mean I don’t think he’s one of the best to play the game, but I’m agreeing with Reggie on this one. What do you guys think, do you agree with Reggie or think Lebron is a better overall player than Bird?
It’s hard to believe but Patrick Ewing turns 52 years old today so let’s take a look at his 10 best highlights (according to the NBA YouTube channel) and give respect to of one the greats that never got a ring.
Soon after this video came out the New York Knicks signed him to a 5 year contract.
In this video some dudes threw a basketball off of a dam and watched it fall strait down. Then they added a slight backspin to the ball as they dropped it and it took off sideways as it use the Magnus Effect.
