The NBA honors its first unanimous regular season MVP with this mind-boggling highlight reel put together by the great Hoopmixtape. If you took a howitzer and gave it Allen Iverson’s handles and Jason Williams’ passing, you’d get Steph Curry.
THE BEST Basketball
One of the biggest stars in a town bursting with them went out with a bang. On his last NBA game, Kobe Bryant dropped 60 points to lead the Lakers to a comeback victory against the Jazz. Only 21 other players have scored at least 60 in a game. And Mamba is 37 years old.
An injury derailed Devin Williams’ dream of playing high level college hoops, and he ended up in an art university. End of story? Nope. A class assignment unlocked his eye for filmmaking and teaching. Now he’s a YouTube star who has positively impacted many lives.
2016 March Madness lived up to its name with a thrilling Final. #2 Villanova completed the trail of upsets by defeating #1 North Carolina. The last 1:30 of the game was filled with defensive plays, but it ended with a crazy offensive exchange in the game’s final seconds.
2/13/16 will forever be remembered as the day a dude sat in mid-air. The NBA’s rocket-jumping 20-year olds Aaron Gordon and Zach LaVine brought Toronto down in a legendary Slam Dunk Contest. Batman v Superman is probably going to be a letdown compared to this duel.
“It’d be hard for me not to improve your team.” Eighteen-year-old Yitzi Teichman has brain cancer, which as he puts it helped him get a 1-day contract with the Los Angeles Lakers (via the Make-A-Wish Foundation). He may not be a great baller, but he’s got a future in comedy.
The Warriors’ Steph Curry and the Kings’ Omri Casspi turned the 2nd quarter of their match into a video game. In 3 minutes, they made nine 3-point shots, some from over 30ft. The crazier fact? Back in January, Curry’s teammate Klay Thompson did this and more all by himself.
