At first look this clip makes it look like Donatas just totally punk'd Matt Barnes with a move you would expect to see on a court off of Venice Beach or something.
Then when I watch it a couple more times I start to wonder if Donatas lost the ball and simply got lucky that it happened to hit Barnes in the shoulder and bounce right back to him.
Then I watch it again and I think that he punk'd Barnes. Either way it looks cool.
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
Every once in a while the internet will provide some gold. Last night it was Donatas Motiejunas, a player who our good friend Brian Geltzeiler, The Hoops Critic absolutely loves. A little bit of a luck and a little bit of skill will land you a dribble off your opponents face for an easy lay up. Basketball is all about misdirection. Donatas planned this play the entire way through...

The Los Angeles Clippers stormed out to a 46-28 lead in the first quarter and held on to beat the Houston Rockets on Wednesday night 106-96. With the game well in hand and the team leading by 16 midway through the second quarter, Clippers center Ryan Hollins let his foot do the talking as he appeared to intentionally kick Rockets guard Jeremy Lin as Lin was falling to the floor...
GIVE HIM THE BOOT
Los Angeles Clippers center Ryan Hollins thought he got a quick one in last night against the Houston Rockets when he kicked Jeremy Lin in the stomach, but he was caught red footed. Check out the video below of Hollins giving Lin the boot to the stomach and then holding his hands up like he didn't do anything.

This video was made as a tribute to Mr. James Bucklin, whose valentine will always be Yao Ming. Many people don't understand what Yao is or what he could have been had injuries stayed far away. We miss the big fella and only hope he is doing well. This is a bitter sweet video.
PS. no one made this video for James, that was a joke.
Ryan Hollins of the Los Angeles Clippers may regret this spur of the moment decision during their game against the Houston Rockets on Wednesday night. Hollins was frustrated and as Lin took a tumble in front of him, he used the moment to blatantly kick Lin. Ryan, you can expect a call from Mr. Stern’s office today.

How chubby did Yao Ming get? And why isn't he happy? He is jealous this Jeremy Lin kid who grew up in America is stealing his thunder as the Chinese Basketball player? Dikembe Mutumbo is always happy. No matter where he is.
