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…
If you’ve been following the NBA at all so far this year you’ll have noticed two things:
1. Lebron is still flopping.
2. Stephen Curry is still amazing.
Seriously this dude has had four 40+ point games this year so far and his defense is even better than last year. This highlight reel is from last night’s game against the Timberwolves (who had the worst record in the league last year) who actually made it a respectable game (until Curry checked back in and lit them up). Curry ended up with 46 points.
Everyone loves photobombs right?
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.
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.
Monday mornings suck so make it a little better by watching the best dunks of last season.
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.
If you’re unaware of what this nutbag is talking about a quick recap is DeAndre Jordan made a verbal agreement with the Dallas Mavericks to leave the LA Clippers (possible over their new terrible logo) and sign with them. Well yesterday he must have decided it’s better to live in LA than in Dallas because he changed his mind. It’s a pretty big f**k you to Dallas and owner Mark Cuban. Here’s an exlusive look at DeAndre’s reacting watching this kid’s rant video:
Jason Williams (a.k.a White Chocolate) was one of my favorite players when he was balling for the Kings. I loved his no f**ks given attitude and his passing skills were second to none. Well apparently his 13 year old son can ball (also looks just like his dad). This post is mostly an excuse to watch some old J. Will highlights while I find his jersey in my closet.
So this freakishly tall internet blogger went to the NBA draft pretending to be a player and the results are amazing! He gets on the floor of the draft, everyone wants selfies with him, gets free drinks, and the women…oh the women. The women are thirsty out there for some young, about to be rich dude and just start ripping their clothes off and making out with him! Oh what a life it must be.
These poor Knicks can’t catch a break. Last night the Kicks drafted Kristaps Porzingis and that made this one kid cry…so let’s all laugh at him.
Damn that’s a smooth looking jumper. Stephen Curry has been teaching his wife Ayesha some things. Maybe after she has her baby she should go out for the WNBA.
Hannibal Buress asked Jimmy Kimmel for a ticket to Game 5 of the NBA finals. He got them, but they were waaaaaay in the back.
After game 5 Lebron James called himself the best player in the world. It’s the kind of egomaniacal statement that made me write why I dislike him so much. So last night after the Warriors beat the Cavs in game 6 Klay had a little fun with Lebron’s statement. Even though Lebron James had a historically good finals appearance and Klay Thompson was pretty much trash this series it’s still pretty funny. On a side note, let’s see if Jordan would call himself the best player in the world:
