Get motivated this Tuesday morning with this awesome supercut of coaches motivational speeches!
Yes, two Last Week Tonight posts in a row. Do I look like I give a f**k? Anyway, last night John Oliver took on Fantasy Sports and why it’s totally gambling.
Previously on Last Week Tonight:
I don’t know what the hell this fight is about and I don’t really care. To me it just means that football is finally here! Skip to the 1:30 mark to see the first (very slow) punch thrown. Football!!!!!
For this installment of Great Moments in Sports I want to take a look back at probably the greatest comeback in NBA history. On December 9th, 2004 Tracy McGrady scored 13 points in 35 seconds to lead the Houston Rockets to an improbable victory over the San Antonio Spurs. The Rockets had a 76-68 lead with 44 seconds to go in the game. But T-Mac wasn’t going to give up.
He started off his mind-blowing scoring outburst by nailing a 3 with 35 seconds to go.
After getting fouled the Spurs hit 2 free throws to put the score at 78-71 with 29 seconds left. Then Tracy McAwesome dribbled up the court and pump faked Tim Duncan right out of his jockstrap to hit the and-1 3 point shot (he made the free throw to complete the 4 point play).
After fouling, the spurs make the free throws and put the score at 80-75 with 16 seconds to go. Andre Barrett had the ball to inbound, and Tracy McEpic struggled to get open..
When he finally got the ball he ran to the top of the key and shot an awkward 3 that hits the bottom of the net. The Rockets are now down by only 2, 80-78. Spurs call time out to advance to the frontcourt.
Spurs ball, 11 seconds left, no timeouts for either team. Brent Barry inbounds to Bruce Brown who drives baseline and slips on…well, let’s just say he slips on T-Mac’s awesomeness.
Tracy McBadass picks up the ball, drives to the other side of the court, and drains a 3 with 1.7 seconds left!
Wow…Let me take a breath here. Tracy McShouldHaveGotARing was in the zone! Watch the great piece the NBA made below, and then watch the game in real time (the video cut out the Spurs free throws), but watch it and wonder how T-Mac never got a ring.
The title really says it all. This poor bastard couldn’t keep it together at this Austrian soccer match. In my opinion this is how all mascots should act, it would make them so much more entertaining!
You know a fan brawl will be pretty good when it opens up with a woman screaming, “Smack that bitch!” I saw a couple sucker punches and a woman at 25 seconds in deciding to lightly tap someone on the back of the head. Baseball is back!
Now that’s some handles! I’ve probably watched this vine 30 times and it gets better each time.
Skip to minute 1:15 for the “wham saucing”. The only thing I’m really taking away from this video is that the phrase ‘Wham Sauced The Meet Crew’ is going to be a part of my everyday vocabulary from now on.
Oh DeAndre, you’re such a cut up.
Well coaches always say no easy baskets right…? Texas Southern’s Malcolm Riley would fit right in playing for the 1980s Pistons.
Not only did he want to win, he wanted to win with style.
I would like to give this kid a high five for that.
Last night’s Bulls/Thunder game was epic. Russell Westbrook couldn’t quite keep his triple double streak alive, but he did drop 43 points. The Bulls ended up winning the game 108-105 because of an amazing 3 by E’Twaun Moore. But the highlight of the game is this fan getting a little too close to Joakim Noah. First he almost clocks him in the face with a fist pump, then slaps Noah’s ass getting a little too deep in the crack, then finishes with a light tap on the shoulder. A great combo from this chubby court side sitting fan.
Jakob Silfverberg of the Anaheim Ducks, shoots the puck off the crossbar then grabs his own rebound to score on Mike Smith of the Arizona Cayotes.
There’s some trippy animation going on in this video. Pretty cool stuff.
