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...

Long gone are the days where Dikembe Mutombo could wag his finger that was the size of a broom handle after swatting a shot into the third row. Also gone are the days of Mutombo’s postgame interviews that were barely comprehensible because of the depth of his voice.
GEICO has re-birthed both the broom handle and the baritone in their recent commercials. And they’re grand...
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.

I could have sworn that somebody on this here incredible UPROXX network had already written about the Dikembe Mutombo Geico commercial, or maybe it’s just that I’ve watched it so many times that it’s tattooed on my brain and I see his goofy grin every time I open my eyes. Whatever the case may be, between my ridiculous car insurance payments and commercials about human women...

JJ Watt had one of the best seasons by a defender, possibly ever. He easily won DPOY and rightfully so. He’s only going to get better and that’s scary for offenses around the NFL.

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.
Dikembe Mutombo Mpolondo Mukamba Jean-Jacques Wamutombo. The name alone is Basketball Hall of Fame worthy, Just ask the man himself.
The man who ranks second in NBA history in blocked shots, behind Hakeem Olajuwon, thinks he belongs in the Hall along with his fellow African-born dominant pivot. As he told the Associated Press at an NBA Cares initiative on Wednesday:

Texans DE JJ Watt is a 6-foot-5, 295-pound beast of a man, but put him next to retired NBA star Yao Ming and his impressive 7-foot-6, 310-pound frame, and Watt goes from imposing hulk to, well, a normal sized human being. According to Watt’s Twitter account the two had lunch together, but the 2012 NFL Defensive Player of the Year failed to mention whether the pair broke out in...
This should be one of the better dunk contest in recent memory.
He makes me feel so small T…
How did Houston Texans defensive star JJ Watt get so good at football when he’s so small, he must be like 4′ 9” next to Yao Ming. This is always referred to as the Yao Ming effect. He can make anyone feel like a little person.-TO

J.J. Watt had lunch with Yao Ming and the two posed for a photo that Watt shared on Twitter. People were shocked by the disparity in size because apparently some think all sports people are equally gigantic. Someone looks small compared to a guy who’s listed at 7’6″? WEIRD!
