OK it must be getting a bit tiresome waiting for the new NBA season because Lakers’ Jeremy Lin is pranking people. Lin was honored by the folks at Madame Tussauds wax museum in San Francisco as a new wax figure was made in his likeness. Of course this gave Lin an opportunity to pretend he was the wax figure and scare a bunch of people including his mom and uncle.

The Best from the Champs

The San Antonio Spurs added yet another NBA crown to their trophy case as they walked away from the 2013-14 season as NBA champs. It was their fifth title in franchise history and won it with teamwork, unselfish play, solid coaching, a team-first mentality and that oh so beautiful ball movement. But before they hit the hardwood to defend their NBA crown, how about a look back at...

Every free agent in the NBA has had an eye on next summer and the summer after. That explains why LeBron James took a one-year deal with a player option for the second. It is because he, and everyone associated with the league, knew what was coming down the pike. The market is set and now the league just waits to make the profit and reap the rewards. And they should be quite profitable...

Ty Lawson is in on the James Harden No-D Memes

That James Harden photo started making the rounds as the Dallas Cowboys lost to the San Francisco 49ers 28-17 after the Cowboys last year had the worst statistical season defensively in NFL history. Or something like that. I am usually napping during NFL games Sunday afternoon (when does basketball start?!). But this James Harden photo was pretty spot on. Video of Harden’s poor...

If you have not been watching the 2014 FIBA tourney out in Spain, then you are missing a whole lot of sweet plays!

Spurs’ Parker nails trick shots with ease… or does he?

Absolutely, positively this cannot be real… right? San Antonio’s Tony Parker and Rémi Gaillard, a French pranskter, shot a video where the two traded trick shots. Parker used a basketball while Gaillard used a soccer ball. The result… Parker making behind the back tosses for the bucket and Remi heaving a shot the length of the court with the ball hitting nothing but net....

Steven Adams not cool with Andre Iguodala’s response to Haka

Before Tuesday’s game between the United States and New Zealand, the “Tall Blacks” performed the traditional Maori Haka. In case you did not know, the Haka is a traditional pre-war dance that has very deep meanings in New Zealand culture.

Aging gracefully takes hard work

This is going to be an odd year for Kobe Bryant. Everyone already seems to be writing his swan song, and Bryant, begrudgingly, sees the end of his career on the horizon. These final two years on his contract extension are likely his final years in the league. Bryant is not a player to fade into the background. No, he wants to be the man. He expects to be the man. He will not let...
