How to Basketball

How to Basketball

We’re not sure how anyone can toss basketballs this fast, let alone put almost every one in the hoop. It’s too bad that all he could probably afford with the tickets he won was a pack of temporary tattoos and a Beanie Baby.

Best 14-Year-Old Baller?

Best 14-Year-Old Baller?

His name may be Seventh, but Hoop Mixtape claims that he’s the best 14-year-old basketball player in the U.S. That’s subjective. What’s not subjective is that he’s just fourteen. Kids these days are mutants. (Thanks Alex!)

It’s been a bad month for Detroit Pistons guard Brandon Knight. First Chris Paul owns him at the All-Stars, then DeAndre Jordan temporarily wipes him from his existence. And now this.

And That is the End of That…

And That is the End of That…

The Timberwolves do the internet a solid, and put an end to the ridiculously overplayed Harlem Shake. Sure, Miami fans won’t be pleased, but on the other hand, the Heat crushed them on the court.
