Found October 18, 2012 on Bacon Sports:
The NBA and college basketball seasons are just around the corner and I’m more excited than Rob Gronkowski at Fat Tuesday’s in Cancun on Spring Break. From full court shots, to white guys dunking, to no look passes there are tons of awesome things about the game of basketball.

Here’s a couple videos that I found that show some of the best of the best of guys breaking other dudes ankles.

Chicago Next Offseason Should Involve The Reset Button

After the injury to Derrick Rose, Chicago made short-term moves. The next step for Chicago should be hitting the reset button.  The ability to plan and anticipate is an underrated quality.
