Just when Phoenix fought their way back into the game. Houston Rockets guard James Harden did his thing at the buzzer, hitting a deadly step-back jumper to sink the Suns at the buzzer for good. “It’s a great feeling,” Harden said. “Usually I go at seven, eight seconds.

WWE’s Lana Trades Barbs With Dwight Howard at House Show

  I’m not sure if I have the power to crown BC’s favorite WWE Diva, but I’m going to go ahead and say it’s the ravishing Russian, Lana. Yes, she’s not really Russian, but she’s a former FSU cowgirl who totally commits to her pro-Putin role.

What could Josh Smith be for the Rockets?

The Rockets appear to be the lead suitor for Josh Smith according to Yahoo’s Adrian Wojnarowski (i.e. The Godfather).

The Houston Rockets GM Basically Called Kentucky An NBA Team

Kentucky is currently giving UCLA one of the biggest beatdowns college basketball has seen in recent memory. The No. 1-ranked Wildcats (11-0) allowed just seven points through 20 minutes of play and now lead the Bruins (8-3) by nearly 40 points. It’s the type of shellacking you’d see if an NBA team played a college team.  It makes sense. In the eyes of Houston Rockets general...
