Every NBA Pre-Game Analysis

Every NBA Pre-Game Analysis

(PG-13 Language) “See what he did there? He put the orange ball in the red circle, thereby releasing a double point.” Boat Comedy says this is what NBA pre-game talk is like. They’re wrong. This is what the pre-game talk should be like.

The Triple-up Dunk

The Triple-up Dunk

Vince Carter made a 7ft. dude world famous by dunking over him. The 5’9″ baller Ilya Kroshka aka Kroha doesn’t shatter anyone’s dreams here, but he does dunk over a guy piggybacked on another guy.

The Lost & Found Dunk

The Lost & Found Dunk

Prophetic NBA Commercials

Prophetic NBA Commercials

NBA 2014-15 Ring Concepts

The NBA hypes up the playoffs by releasing mockups of the 2014-2015 championship ring for each of the 16 playoff teams. The Hawks and Bulls rings are style co-champs. And how depressing is it that the Nets are in while OKC are not?

NY Knicks: 2014-15 Lowlights

NY Knicks: 2014-15 Lowlights

YouTuber Wob38 sums up another year in the New York Knicks’ disastrous run, sarcastically set to the NCAA championship theme. You can probably make a similar video for any team in any sport, but only the Knicks have Lou Amundson.

Blake Griffin’s Helicopter Block

Blake Griffin’s Helicopter Block

Here is your moment of Zen. When does a shot fake both work and fail? When the blocker is Blake Griffin. In the Clippers’ latest game against the Celtics, the athletic forward twirled 180º in mid-air to make up for his premature defense.

Basketball Trick Cheats

Dirk Nowitzki’s All-Star Dunk

Dirk Nowitzki’s All-Star Dunk

Sorry Zach LaVine, but Dirk Nowitzki is our dunk champ. Steph Curry didn’t actually know whom he was passing to in this hilarious All-Star Game play, but the 36-year old didn’t disappoint. The last time Dirk had an alley-oop was in 2004.

Literally Balling

Literally Balling

A series of handmade basketball rings with stained glass backboards, gold-plated rims and bejewelled nets. Victor Solomon’s Literally Balling started out as a joke, but has turned into a commentary on rich and powerful sports stars.

The Space Jam Dunk

The Space Jam Dunk

Donning Michael Jordan’s number for the 2015 Sprite Slam-Dunk Contest, the Timberwolves’ Zach LaVine channeled His Airness – and possibly outdid him – with this epic dunk. Somebody needs to check his hi-tops for rockets.

Tall Justice 2

The Heat may not be a .500 team quite yet, but NBA fans will have a few snickers while watching the amusing cop drama Tall Justice 2 with all star Chris Bosh; he’s a good cop who must prove his innocence in a frame job. See the first skit here.

The Statue Handshake

The Statue Handshake

Oklahoma City Thunder centers Nick Collison and Steven Adams recently showed off their secret handshake on TV. It’s not filled with dozens of daps or complicated sequences. In fact, it’s just the opposite. KD seems used to it.

Air to the Throne

Michael Porter Jr. is a 16-year-old high school basketball player in Columbia, Missouri. His shooting and slashing skills combined with his  6’8″ height have earned him the moniker Baby KD. But here he ascends to Baby MJ.

Nike Kobe 9 KRM EXT Black Mamba

Nike Kobe 9 KRM EXT Black Mamba

LeBron James, Jr.

LeBron James, Jr.

Like father, like son. TakeMyTalent shares the highlights of LeBron James’ son from a youth basketball tournament in Houston. LeBron Jr. can’t dunk just yet, but the 4th grader’s got game. And a mouthguard.

Virtual Mugshot

Killspencer Mini Basketball Kit

Killspencer Mini Basketball Kit

The only thing darker than Killspencer’s murdered out mini basketball hoop is its price. It comes in all black maple, leather and metal or with a 24k gold-plated rim and gold foil net. Oh and the ball? Sold separately. $300. Damn.

Kwe Parker: Dunk from Above

Kwe Parker: Dunk from Above

Kwe’Shaun Parker turns just 18 this year and is only 6’2″ tall. But this high school junior is the reason why prolific dunkers are described as playing above the rim. Sometimes literally in this kid’s case. More of Kwe here.

10-Person Trick Shot

10-Person Trick Shot

We’ve seen plenty of videos flaunting individual trick shot skills, but we can only imagine the amount of coordination, skill (and luck) it took to get all 10 of these basketballs to sink in the net without one person missing their shot.
