Remember that time Fox News host Laura Ingraham got upset that “someone who gets paid $100 million a year to bounce a ball” would dare have an opinion on the politics going on in the country he was born in, raised in, lives in and pays taxes in—so she said LeBron James and any other NBA player with an opinion on Trump…
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.
Stephen and Ayesha Curry welcomed baby number three to their family on Monday and introduced him to the world on Wednesday, on the ‘gram of course.
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!
NBA legend Bill Russell feels the same way about Charles Barkley as most of us do. During Monday’s NBA Awards, when Barkley was presenting the Lifetime Achievement Award to Oscar Robertson, Barkley shouted out all the legends in attendance, including Russell. But when the camera panned to show Russell, the 84-year-old…
In news that is shocking to no one who even remotely watches basketball, the NBA draft has come and gone, and LiAngelo Ball—the middle Ball child, the one who doesn’t have the height of older brother Lonzo or the potential of younger brother LaMelo—has gone undrafted.
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:
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…
On the same day the National Football League decided to obfuscate the real reason its players were kneeling during the national anthem, Milwaukee police released bodycam footage that showed exactly why players have been kneeling during the national anthem. Police continue to abuse their power and use excessive force…
Below, because I know you’re curious, are the five worst places to be elbowed during a basketball game (in reverse order):
Kylia Carter, mother of former Duke basketball star Wendell Carter Jr., didn’t mince words during an emotional speech to the Knight Commission on Intercollegiate Athletics, in which she compared the current NCAA basketball system to slavery and prison.
“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…
A white reporter who covers the Golden State Warriors was caught on tape stealing a security staffer’s jacket. It isn’t debatable; it happened. Several news outlets have seen the tape and confirmed that Mike Shumann, a sports anchor for KGO-TV in San Francisco, picked up the jacket, which didn’t belong to him, and…
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.
Candace Parker is a legit WNBA star with endorsement deals and a name that rings outside of WNBA circles. Her ex-husband, Shelden Williams, was an NBA bust who basically rode the bench of several NBA teams for six years before the basketball gods realized that the NBA was no place for Shelden Williams.
Here are the facts.
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.
The Dallas Mavericks have launched an independent investigation after a report by Sports Illustrated on Tuesday alleged that the NBA franchise maintained a “corrosive workplace culture” where women were routinely sexually harassed by male co-workers.
I cannot figure out if LaVar Ball, the enigmatic father of three basketball prodigies, is a genius using common man’s-speak or, really just a common man speaking nonsense.
