Markel Brown Does It All For Cowboys

Desmond Mason hasn’t done it. Neither has Bryant “Big Country” Reeves. Only one player in the storied history of Oklahoma State basketball will soon be listed in the record books like Markel Brown. The Cowboys guard needs just two assists to become the first player in OSU history to be listed among the top 15 players in points, assists and blocked shots in a career.

The Slam Dunk Contest is dead... again

Saturday night brought the annual return of one of my favorite themes in the sports calendar - the impending death of the NBA Slam Dunk Contest.  It's really quite the phenomenon.  Like clockwork, almost every All Star Saturday Night brings the call to finally put an end to an event that saw its prime a full generation ago.  The NBA must really think the combination of no...

The Evolution Of The Dunk Contest: What The Hell Happened

Growing up when I wasn’t the biggest fan of the NBA I still looked forward to All-Star Weekend. Sure, the three point contest was cool, and the actual game was something to watch, but when the event to look forward to was the dunk contest.

2012 NBA Dunk Contest: A Throw Up, Instead of Throw Down Event

Former Sonics and Blazers put 2012 Contest to shame Jeremy Evans, Derrick Williams, Chase Budinger and Paul George;  far from superstar status, far from household names, far from the best dunkers the NBA has to offer.  Yet last weekend, those four gentlemen had the unfortunate honor of participating in what could go down as the worst dunk contest in All-Star Game history (save...

Five Interesting Things From A Rather Uninteresting All-Star Weekend

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again… All-Star Weekend simply doesn’t do much for me.  I don’t know if it’s that it really isn’t as good as it used to be, or if it just doesn’t seem to be because I’ve grown older and grumpier.  Either way, it’s not my cup of tea anymore.  I used to get really excited about the dunk contest back in the J-Rich, Desmond...

NBA Appreciation Day: Desmond Mason Dunk Compilation

Happy Friday, and happy NBA Appreciation Day!  What I have for you today is a compilation–not a mix, but a compilation–of a prime Desmond Mason soaring through the Milwaukee, Seattle, and New Orleans skies for a variety of jaw-dropping slam dunks.  While it’s not the longest video in the world, and it may even leave you wondering “well where was his ____ dunk?”, I think...

NBA Appreciation Day: Shawn Kemp Dunking All Over Dallas

It’s Friday, so that means it’s NBA appreciation day here at NBA247365.COM.  When I came up with this little idea last Spring I had planned on making a post like this every week, but I often found myself short of either time or ideas.  I kind of scrapped the whole thing, but who’s to say that I can’t bring it back every once in a while?  Besides, I need an excuse to post...
