Video: Painting Yao Ming with a basketball as a brush

There are few better adjectives to describe a great basketball player than "inspirational." If an athlete is truly great, he makes other people want to accomplish great things themselves. Where people take that newfound sense of purpose is anyone's guess — at some point you just need to accept other people's personal eccentricities. So, as you watch this video...

Video: Painting Yao Ming portrait using basketball as brush

I find this fascinating — a woman paints a portrait of Yao Ming, in Rockets red (or China red, if you prefer), using a basketball as a brush. It’s technically impressive, and a good portrait.

The Houston Rockets will not be wearing the Worst Uniforms Ever next season

From the very reputable Clutch from Just a heads up ... I was told today the Rockets will not be wearing their blue pinstriped uniforms (1995-96 to 2002-03) as throwbacks next season. Maybe it was being kicked around as an idea (don't know), but it's not happening. Goodness, gracious, sakes alive. It was touch and go there, for a while, but things are...
