In case you forgot and needed a reminder, big men get paid! Whether it's Roy Hibbert or Brook Lopez and to a lesser degree Ian Mahimni, this summer is proof that when in doubt, just give your seven footer too much money. Even restricted free agency didn't delude the big man market this summer. In fact, being restricted kind of forced Indiana and Brooklyn's hand...

Remembering that Rudy Fernandez dunked on Dwight Howard and his neck four years ago made me happy. God bless America. (And Spain.)The post Starting Lineups: Rudy Fernandez Dunking On Dwight Howard In 2008 Makes Me Happy appeared first on The Sports Fan Journal.
Although Blake Griffin leaping over a car, while being fed the ball by former teammate Baron Davis and then slamming the rock through the hole, was a spectacular feat; I was more impressed by center JaVale McGee’s performance, in the 2011 NBA Slam Dunk Contest.
