Halfcourt Shot Attempt by Fan Comes to Rest on Rim With Thud (Video)

Fans get to shoot halfcourt shots all the time. Whether for money, a car, free tickets to a future game or some other prize, the halfcourt shot is a longstanding tradition during breaks in action at NBA games. In the long history of halfcourt shots, however, the one taken Friday during the Hawks-Jazz game might be the most unusual ever. Taking the unfortunately titled “Money Shot...

Atlanta Hawks Fan Gets Ball Stuck on Rim During Half-Court Shot (Video)

During Friday night’s Hawks vs. Jazz game, a lucky Atlanta fan named Kevin had a chance at $1,000 if he made a half court shot.  He went with the over hand baseball throw, which everyone knows is a rookie move.  Somehow the ball ended up magically getting stuck on top of the rim.  Didn't think that was possible from a strait on angle.  The announcer then went up and grabbed...

Hawks fan’s half-court shot for $1,000 is the most amazing miss you will ever see

Kevin, an Atlanta Hawks season ticket holder, was chosen to take the Money $hot (Ed. note: yep, that’s what it’s called) at halftime of the Hawks-Jazz game this past Friday night. If he makes the half-court shot he’s $1,000 richer, and if he misses he gets bupkus.  As you witnessed while watching the video above, Kevin missed the Money $hot, but his miss was so spectacular...

An interview with Tracy McGrady in China would reportedly cost you five grand

Former NBA star Tracy McGrady opted to take his talents overseas for the current basketball season. That decision led him to play for the Qingdao Eagles of the Chinese Basketball Association. Less than a week removed from being suspended by the CBA for calling officials "Three Blind Mice", a report has surfaced alleging that an interview with the 33-year old comes with...

Video: Crazy half-court shot at Atlanta Hawks halftime-show

Tweet Many times when a fan has a chance to win some money shooting a half-court shot as part of the halftime show, it’s either a pitiful attempt or so close that the crowd gasps as it misses. Rarely do you see made shots and rarely do you see anything other than those three options. [...]

Atlanta Hawks set new records for futility

The Hawks have been in Atlanta since 1968, but have existed as a franchise since 1949.  In those 64 seasons, the Hawks have scored 65 or fewer points 66 times.  They have failed to score 60 points just 21 times.  On Monday night, the Hawks made it an even 22 in an embarrassing 97-58 loss to the Bulls.  The pathetic offensive output is the lowest since the team moved to Atlanta...

Carmelo Anthony started fast without coach’s knowledge

Carmelo Anthony has a knack for generating all of the wrong attention. Just when it seemed that this year would be different the New York Knicks leader has us talking less MVP and more TMZ. His coach Mike Woodson answered a variety of questions about his recent fast as the team prepared to depart for London to face the Detroit Pistons on Thursday. Please Click Here To Read This...

Atlanta Hawks Scored 5 Points in a Quarter and Taj Gibson Posterized Anthony Tolliver

The Atlanta Hawks had one of the worst games I've ever seen from an NBA team last night.  They finished the game with 58 points, and had a quarter in which they only scored 5 points.  That has to be an NBA record for worst quarter ever.  They ended up losing the game to the Chicago Bulls 97-58.  The Bulls Taj Gibson added some salt to the wound when he posterized Atlanta’s...

POTD 1/12/13: Martell Webster on DeShawn Stevenson

As terrible as the Wizards have been this year, it’s hard to imagine where they’d be without Martell Webster.  Webster, though only averaging about 10 points per game, has been one of Washington’s steadiest contributors.  On he court, his most important quality has been his ability and willingness to do a little bit of everything, but it’s arguable that his presence has...

John Wall Returns, Remains Fast, Still Needs To Learn To Shoot

Wizards 93, Hawks 83 [Saturday] ***JOHN WALL BACK!  In something of a surprise return (a surprise to me, at least — I had no idea he was about to come back), Wall helped his Wizards achieve their first win streak (two games) of the season with a 21-minute, 14-point contribution (5-11, 4 AST/3 TO) off the bench.  It was a feel-good game for the Wizards in more ways than one, as...
