I’m just saying. If they’re going to call the cops on us for setting hard screens, we can easily return the favor.
In what might be the most egregious display of Trump’s American punkishness, which includes calling the cops on people doing the most to live their best lives, cops in Virginia were actually called by a grown, white man after another player reportedly knocked him to the floor with an “aggressive screen.” The man who…
Former Duke University guard Grayson Allen is all of the adjectives used to describe white basketball players who are relentless gritty, hard-nosed and scrappy. He’s been called a “real student of the game,” but Grayson Allen is also a term usually used to describe black men: thug.
It seems unfair for one sports franchise to receive such fortune. With LeBron’s decision to move to Los Angeles, eight of the NBA’s top 20 players ever will have played for the Lakers while in their prime.
LeBron fans will soon have a new team to root for!
I don’t know much about sports, but what I do know is that NBA players have been getting really adventurous with their outfits lately.
Of course, Golden State’s NBA Finals victory over Cleveland has delivered joy to many different (and occasionally overlapping) groups of people, including but not limited to:
1. Jordan Clarkson hoops like how the screen would look in the ’90s when you tried watching porn on a pay-per-view channel you didn’t order.
Perhaps if the Boston Celtics had beaten the Cleveland Cavs or if the Houston Rockets hadn’t morphed into rancid Twizzlers in the second half Monday night, we’d have a more competitive NBA Finals ahead of us. I don’t believe the Celtics could have beaten the Golden State Warriors, but they have enough long, bouncy and…
Below, because I know you’re curious, are the five worst places to be elbowed during a basketball game (in reverse order):
I am currently still recovering from the alumni basketball game I played in last weekend, a process that, considering how my back and knee(s) and throat and chest and spleen feel right now, will likely last until June (of 2019). I am hydrating frequently; I am taking longer-than-usual showers; I’ve developed an…
“Don’t be a prisoner of the moment!” said the person on the internet, who is 36 years old, about the reaction to LeBron James’ theatrics against the Toronto Raptors on Saturday. And against the Raptors the game before that. And against the Raptors the game before that. And against the Indiana Pacers the series before…
So far it seems that Meek Mill is enjoying his newfound freedom. Just two hours after being officially released from prison as he appeals decade-old gun and drug convictions, the rapper attended Game 5 of the 76ers playoff series against the Miami Heat with his son.
Here are the facts.
All things considered—and furiously knocking on the closest wood possible—I think I’m in pretty good shape for a man of my advanced age (39).
In 1966 Perry Wallace was a 6-foot-5-inch small forward who helped his Pearl High School team in Nashville, Tenn., go undefeated. He was being heavily recruited by major college programs, but Wallace, a high school All-American, would choose to stay close to home and go to Vanderbilt University.
LeBron James is a freak of nature. Sure, Giannis Antetokounmpo’s (I’m not ashamed to admit I had to look up how to spell his name, gave up trying to get it right, and copied and pasted it) nickname is the Freak, but LeBron James? Bruh.
Collin Sexton is a star freshman point guard for the University of Alabama’s basketball team. He’s so good that although Oklahoma’s Trae Young has a bigger name, Sexton will probably be picked ahead of him in the NBA draft. And while Alabama had an up-and-down season this year, that they even made it to the NCAA…
I probably watched less college basketball this year than I ever have. Actually, “probably” is unnecessary. That is definitely true. For someone as obsessed with basketball as I am, this might seem odd. But I have a few perfectly rational reasons for this lack of viewership:
