Gordon vs. LaVine Slam Dunk Contest

Gordon vs. LaVine Slam Dunk Contest

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.

A season-long series by The Players’ Tribune. It’s about the passing of wisdom between Phoenix Suns’ 33-year old center Tyson Chandler, a 15-year veteran, NBA champion and Olympic gold medalist, and his teammate Devin Booker, the 19-year old sharpshooting rookie.

A Laker for a Day

A Laker for a Day

“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.

Casspi & Curry Shootout

Casspi & Curry Shootout

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.

Bill Burr: NBA Commentator

(PG-13: Language) “The white guy shakin’ his head. He’s going back to Europe – he knows it.” On the 12/10/15 episode of his podcast, Bill Burr talked about the NBA’s white players. YouTuber allenpalin found the game that Bill used as an example and synched his rants.

NBA Team State Flags

NBA Team State Flags

Redditor defenestrate_me_now combined the state flags of all NBA teams with their respective logos. Naturally some states got multiple versions, though that doesn’t mean much for Texas’ state flag. Flat versions here.

Garnett Posterizes Griffin

Garnett Posterizes Griffin

The Timberwolves lost their latest home game against the Clippers, but Kevin Garnett stole the show. The 39-year old gave serial dunker Blake Griffin a dose of his own medicine with a jam so monstrous it might have driven Karl-Anthony Towns insane.

YouTuber Basketball Forever’s trailer for his 12-part compilation that will pay tribute to some of the best NBA players in the past 20 years, including Allen Iverson, Tim Duncan and Kobe Bryant, who recently announced his retirement.

Blake Griffin’s 3-Point Alley-oop

Blake Griffin’s 3-Point Alley-oop

Well, it’s official. Blake Griffin is an anime character. He can block your shot even if you faked him out, he can dunk from midrange and now he can make an alley-oop from the three-point line.

The Zero Point Full Court Shot

The Zero Point Full Court Shot

With 1.1s left in the 2nd quarter against the Pacers, the Celtics made one hell of a buzzer beater. Sadly it won’t count, because Jae Crowder made the shot while inbounding the ball. From the other side of the court. Come on NBA, that has to be worth at least 1 point.

The NBA.COOOOM Tptn

The NBA.COOOOM Tptn

The name Beau Estes might not ring a bell, but if you’re an NBA fan chances are you love this man. He’s the sweet talking and rhyme slinging narrator for NBA’s Top 10 videos. Over the years, he’s developed a quirk. Based on Redditor JacoIII’s investigative report.

Steph Curry’s Slip N’ Swish

Steph Curry’s Slip N’ Swish

Reigning MVP Steph Curry continues to be the NBA’s mad trickster, responding to dire situations with absurd moves. In this play from a pre-season game against the Lakers, he slips and falls down but still ends up humiliating his guard.

Uncanny Kenny “The Jet” Smith joins Uncanny Shaquille O’Neal and Uncanny Ernie Johnson as commentators in NBA 2K16. The three analysts will provide banter and trivia not just in the pre-game loading screen but at halftime and after the game as well.

NBA Draft Prank

NBA Draft Prank

(PG-13) Elite Daily writer Connor Toole is 6’10”. His height and a suit were enough to make people believe that he got picked at the NBA Draft. It’s more of a con than a prank, but we hope the people here learn their lesson.

Mean Tweets: NBA Edition 3

Mean Tweets: NBA Edition 3

Jimmy Kimmel Live‘s latest installment of Mean Tweets with NBA players has a lot of corny entries, but the ones that sting hit hard. It’s okay Blake, it’s okay. Also MJ should ask Reggie Miller where the fountain of youth is.

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.

Steph Curry: Sink a Three

Steph Curry: Sink a Three

A group of musically talented Golden State Warriors fans went all out in their homage to the league MVP and the team’s baby-faced assassin in this cheesy adaptation of the Beatles’ Let It Be. He will be the answer…

The Sinker of Threes, the Atlanta Wargs, the King of Chemistry and more vie for the Larry O’Brien throne in the third installment of Bleacher Report and Mutsack’s Game of Thrones and NBA mashup. Valar Moreflopping.

Prophetic NBA Commercials

Prophetic NBA Commercials

The NBA aired two playoffs commercials starting a few days before the postseason began. All the teams in the first ad eventually advanced to the second round at the expense of all the teams in the second ad.

NBA 2014-15 Ring Concepts

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.

San Antonio Spurs x Tim & Eric

San Antonio Spurs x Tim & Eric

Tim & Eric helped the camera shy NBA team San Antonio Spurs make a parody of one of their old skits. The result is no less bizarre. It was orchestrated by the one and only Red Mamba. Kawhi should be in the new Terminator movie.

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.

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.

Wolves vs. Cavs: The Return

Wolves vs. Cavs: The Return

This year a certain sharpshooter who used to be with the Minnesota Timberwolves went to the Cleveland Cavaliers to be part of a playoff contender. Here’s how the Wolves promoted today’s match between the two teams. Welp…
