In case you didn’t know, the San Antonio Spurs are playing the Sacramento Kings tonight and it seems that Spurs guard Patty Mills was pretty happy about it.
Less than an hour ago, Mills sent out an excited tweet about today’s game and teammate Manu Ginobili decided to do a little bit of trolling since Mills is unlikely to play today:
@Patty_Mills R u back?
— Manu Ginobili...
So Forever 21 has this video of Los Angeles Laker Nick Young… telling tips on how to score your dream girl. He even talked about how he got his current girlfriend, Iggy Azalea (who, by the way, was there to tell her own story, too).
Listen to Nick Young’s tips on macking:
So all you really had to do was do the whole #WCW (Woman Crush Wednesday) thing on social media? Well then...
Nearing the end of last night’s victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves, Milwaukee Bucks rookie Jabari Parker was still on the court as the final seconds ran out.
As the game was almost over, Parker decided to walk over to referee C.J. Washington and attempted to get a quick handshake before the conclusion of play.
Check out the below video from CJZeroVids as Parker fails to get...
Gerald Green is a highlight waiting to happen on the basketball court. The Phoenix Suns beat the Denver Nuggets, 120-112, on Wednesday night and we were treated to a couple of dunks by former Slam Dunk champion Green.
The first dunk was a fantastic inbounds play with 1.4 seconds left on the clock. Green showed his hops with the little reverse jam. And then on the second dunk, he...
After Kyle Singler made a three-pointer in a close Clippers/Pistons contest, DeAndre Jordan tried to deflect the ball back to Spencer Hawes for the inbounds pass. Unfortunately, Andre Drummond’s face got in the way.
Poor Andre Drummond:
Not only that but the Clippers are about to put away the Pistons in Detroit. Not a good day for the Detroit Pistons.
DeAndre Jordan picture...
As the Milwaukee Bucks continue their interesting season, second-year player Giannis Antetokounmpo is showing off some of his amazing promise.
In the first quarter of tonight’s Timberwolves-Bucks game, Giannis came up with the basketball and made an impressive behind-the-back move which lead to a no-look pass to teammate Larry Sanders:
Man, Giannis being Giannis!
Stephen Curry scored 40 points against the Miami Heat in the Warriors’ 114-97 Tuesday night win. And he was making the Heat pay with his shooting that we all can’t understand. Curry will make threes in transition. Curry will make threes while running away from three guys. Curry will make threes off broken plays. It’s unbelievable.
Check out Curry’s highlights from his 40...
The Golden State Warriors are having quite a start as they are 11-2 after a win over Miami on Tuesday night. So they must be having a lot of fun right now, right?
Well, Marreese “Mo” Speights let us have a glimpse of what’s going on in their team plane on his Instagram. There’s a lot going on here.
Check how much fun the Warriors are having:
Turning up before...
Well, this wasn’t very nice, Ty Lawson.
Lawson does an in and out dribble move against Kirk Hinrich, who went for the steal and fell on one knee. Lawson was able to get the ball inside to Timofey Mozgov for the lay-in. But poor Kirk.
Watch Lawson do Hinrich dirty with that dribble move:
That was really, really bad, Ty.

Jabari Parker had himself a highlight, courtesy of a dunk over Josh Smith. On a Milwaukee fastbreak, Giannis Antetokounmpo went at Josh Smith before passing it off to Parker for the flush.
Watch Jabari put it down on Josh Smith:
Hopefully, Jabari can continue giving us more highlights and his team more wins in the near future.

Kenneth Faried is quite the dunker. The Manimal glided in from afar and threw in a powerful flush against the Chicago Bulls.
Look at the Manimal in action here:
Brian Shaw and the Nuggets may not know what to do with Kenneth Faried. But the Manimal will keep coming at everyone hard and will keep smashing the rim at will no matter what.

While Harden is horrific defensively and I did claim that we’ll probably remember that defensive stand more than anything he did in his game against the Knicks, he did make a pretty fancy play on the offensive end.
Harden found a cutting Donatas Montiejunas and made a pass through Amare Stoudemire’s legs:
That pass was pretty pro there, Harden.
James Harden pic courtesy...
While we know that James Harden of the Houston Rockets is excellent offensively, his reputation as a defensive player is quite different. He even poked fun about his own defense in a recent Foot Locker ad.
Well, it’s as bad as ever. Look at him play some matador defense during this Knicks fastbreak:
HE JUST STOOD THERE as the Knicks ran their fastbreak. It’s like his feet got...
Michael Carter-Williams and the Philadelphia 76ers are having a rough season (that’s an understatement). And this play against the Blazers pretty much sums up their entire season thus far.
MCW tosses a pass to… referee Haywoode Workman:
Now Workman is a former NBA player himself, mostly known for his stint with the Indiana Pacers in the mid-90s. So he actually made a great...
Kemba Walker can dance. And, boy, did he make Chris Paul “dance” in a match-up between the Charlotte Hornets and Los Angeles Clippers.
Look at Kemba lose CP3 with this crossover:
The Clippers do lead by halftime against the Hornets, 56-53. But Kemba’s crossover is the play that we will remember in that half.

Power rankings are silly. We always fight over which team should be in certain spots when, ultimately, it really doesn’t matter. So we made our own silly “pointless rankings” about the things that went on in the league in the past week. This feature will be on every Monday.
Disagree with these rankings? We already said that these were silly. I put them where I feel they belong...
Wesley Johnson’s athleticism is off the charts and bad things seem to happen to Danilo Gallinari when he goes against the Lakers.
Look at Wesley just throw it down on Gallinari in this fastbreak:
That was one fierce slam by Wesley Johnson. The bench’s reaction was pretty excellent and hilarious.
However, the Denver Nuggets would have the last laugh as they beat the Lakers at...
The Oklahoma City Thunder don’t have much going on with Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook out but they still have spitfire point guard Reggie Jackson healthy.
And when Jackson is healthy, he can do things like this against the Warriors:
The Thunder are currently trailing at home against the Warriors at the half.

Kevin Durant seems to be like one of the nicest human beings ever but maybe that ad campaign of Kevin Durant not being nice is becoming more and more true. He crushed a kid’s jumpshot out of nowhere.
Take a look at this powerful rejection:
Yeah, Kevin Durant; that is definitely not nice. But it’s pretty funny.

In Saturday night’s game between the Milwaukee Bucks and the Washington Wizards, old man Paul Pierce tried to do something daring. He tried to go for a two-handed stuff on a drive. What was waiting for him wasn’t exactly pleasant.
Larry Sanders snuffed the dunk and gave the crowd a salute:
One of the biggest reasons why Milwaukee’s defense has been excellent thus far was...
There are few things in basketball more pretty than a perfect outlet pass and tonight, San Antonio Spurs big man Tim Duncan provided an amazing one.
In the first quarter of their game against the Brooklyn Nets, Duncan was able to deliver an amazing near full-court pass to Kawhi Leonard for an easy lay-up:
The Big Fundamental got that outlet pass game on lock!
There are few people in today’s association that can deliver the amazing pass like Cleveland Cavaliers star LeBron James and during tonight’s Cavaliers-Raptors game, he had a pretty nice one.
In the first quarter of play, LeBron delivered a beautiful no-look behind-the-back assist to teammate Anderson Varejao despite solid defense from Toronto:
Geez, that was pretty amazing...
The Los Angeles Lakers were blown out by the Dallas Mavericks, 140-106. We all know that the Laker team is bad and, for the most part, Kobe Bryant has to put the team on his back. Kobe’s got that mentality so much that he will do crazy things.
Crazy things like put up a 35-foot shot WITH SIX SECONDS LEFT IN THE SHOT CLOCK:
And the shot doesn’t even reach rim. Maybe Kobe thought...
The Denver Nuggets fans certainly got their money’s worth as the Nuggets blew out the New Orleans Pelicans, 117-97. One fan got MORE than their money’s worth. JaVale McGee attempted to save the ball for his team and ended up in the front row next to an elderly lady. McGee sat next to the lady for a few seconds and gave her a peck on the cheek. How cute!
Look at McGee kiss the...
Deron Williams has been showing glimpses here and there on why he was one of the top point guards in the league a few years ago. Jeremy Lamb got a glimpse of it himself as he was left behind by the Brooklyn Nets guard with a vicious crossover.
That was just plain mean, Deron.
