Earlier today, the New York Knicks cut reserve Chris Smith to add a roster spot for Jeremy Tyler.
Under normal circumstances, this wouldn’t draw much ire except for the fact that Chris is J.R. Smith’s younger brother.
After hearing the news, J.R. posted this image on Instagram:
That’s the sad part about betrayal, huh?

Looking for the block of the night from Sunday’s NBA games? We have it for you here at That NBA Lottery Pick.
It happened during last night’s Orlando Magic/Atlanta Hawks as it appeared that Atlanta’s Shelvin Mack had an easy lay-up nearing the end of the second quarter.
That was until Victor Oladipo decided to chasedown Mack and swat the ball into the stands at the Amway Center...
It’s not often that we see an NBA player apologize for throwing down a nasty dunk but that’s exactly what Philadelphia 76ers player Evan Turner did last night.
In the waning second of the Lakers/76ers game at Staples Center, Turner had a breakaway opportunity to close out the game and threw down an impressive stuff.
After Turner finishes the play, he can be seen apologizing to...
Looking for the slam dunk of Sunday night’s NBA games? Then, you came to the right place!
It came courtesy of Oklahoma City Thunder star Kevin Durant in the second quarter against the Houston Rockets and watch as KD soars for the one-handed jam that he throws down on former teammate James Harden:

Let’s be honest folks, taking an elbow to the head is going to hurt regardless of who delivers the blow and during tonight’s Cavaliers/Warriors game, Kyrie Irving felt the pain.
The incident happened in the third quarter as Kyrie went to double team the Warriors big man.
Watch as Andrew tries to pass out to an open man and accidentally hits Kyrie right in the noggin:
There are few teams in the NBA that slam the ball down like the Los Angeles Clippers and even their pregame dunk fests are worth a couple watches.
Before Friday’s game against the Utah Jazz, DeAndre Jordan and Blake Griffin showed off their aerial exploits in the lay-up line.
Check out Blake’s and DeAndre’s offering with two nasty between-the-legs jams:
Back in the 1990′s, there used to be this show called “Seinfeld” (which was apparently, a show about nothing) and the female lead of the show was actress Julia Louis-Dreyfus.
Yesterday, Miami Heat star LeBron James got the chance to meet Julia (who currently stars on the HBO show Veep) and decided to take a relatively tame Instagram photo with her:
Aww, that’s so cute!...

As you might figure, NBA players have plenty of questions asked to them by members of the media after games and well, there are times when the questions are poorly-phrased or down-right funny.
After the Rockets win over the New Orleans Pelicans tonight, Rockets center Dwight Howard was asked by a CSN Houston reporter regarding the team “riding him” during the game.
The best finish from Saturday night’s NBA games came in the waning seconds of the Portland Trail Blazers/Miami Heat game as Miami Heat star Chris Bosh played hero. With less than six seconds to play, Miami trailed by two points and Dwyane Wade drove to the basket but was covered by two Portland defenders. Watch as Wade kicks the ball out to Bosh who hits the game-winner with 0...
With no LeBron James tonight in Portland, the Miami Heat had to turn to guard Dwyane Wade to pick up some of the scoring slack and nearing the end of the game, D-Wade took flight to tie the score.
Watch as Wade silences the Moda Center crowd with the explosive one-handed slam dunk:

We’ve all been a little bit of dazed and confused at times but earlier today, Boston Celtics forward Kris Humphries nearly blundered into shooting at his own hoop.
The play happened in the first quarter of the Celtics game with the Cavaliers as a jump ball won by Boston’s Avery Bradley was tipped in the direction of Humphries who caught it.
Watch as Humphries for a split second...
With the news today that Cleveland Cavaliers center Andrew Bynum has been suspended from the team indefinitely, it appears that Bynum’s career in Cleveland has come to an end.
Tomorrow, the Cavaliers face the Golden State Warriors at Quicken Loans Arena and well, they had planned to giveaway some Andrew Bynum Fatheads:
Post by Cleveland Cavaliers.
And, I have feeling that...
As previously noted on That NBA Lottery Pick, if you happen to sit close at an NBA game, you have to keep your head on a swivel since players could be coming your direction.
During today’s Cavaliers/Celtics affair in Boston, Cavaliers forward Tristan Thompson was trying to save a ball from going out-of-bounds and had to leap into the courtside seats to do so.
Keep an eye on the...
If you happen to be in the market for an old Hummer H2 and have some extra spending cash, you might as well head over to the auction site eBay and pick up LeBron James old one.
Back in 2003, when LeBron acquired the sports-utility vehicle and the car has been in James possession for the last seven/eight years before being sold.
Below is a short description from the auction itself...
Want to live your life like Miami Heat center Chris “Birdman” Andersen? Well, I’m not sure how your going to get his lavish NBA lifestyle but you can wear some “Birdman”-inspired underwear that Andersen has recently endorsed. The underwear company “PSD” used images of Birdman’s tattoos for the brand-new line of undergarments that will soon be available to the public...
Nearing the end of tonight’s Sacramento Kings/Miami Heat affair, Kings big man DeMarcus Cousins was trying to get position for a rebound on a shot by teammate Isaiah Thomas.
As Cousins went to set his feet, DeMarcus was knocked off balance by Heat guard Mario Chalmers ran into him and sent him flying to the ground.
Referees calling the game quickly intervened and assessed a flagrant...
With the Miami Heat in Sacramento tonight, we kinda knew here at That NBA Lottery Pick that there was going to be at least one insane pass. In the first quarter of play, watch as Miami’s Mario Chalmers throws an over-the-head pass to LeBron James who finished with an amazing one-handed jam: Just wow… *** Chalmers finds LeBron with over-the-head pass [GifD Sports] Chalmers image...
It’s been awhile since I’ve read a “Letters to the Editors” section of a newspaper but maybe I should start to as one Los Angeles Times reader has some pretty good ideas for fixing the Lakers.

You can always count on the LA...
If you happen to be attending the Houston Rockets home game on Saturday at the Toyota Center, you might have the chance to score an awesome Jeremy Lin keychain.
The first 5,000 people through the door will get the Lin inspired keyholder which can be seen in the below tweet:

There are few NBA players in today’s game that have the personality of New York Knicks forward Metta World Peace and today, he decided to show off his zany side during an interview.
When ESPN New York’s Ian Bagley asked Metta about Knicks owner James Dolan’s recent meeting with the Knicks players about the organization’s future, Metta decided to drop another classic Metta...

As we near the end of 2013 here at That NBA Lottery Pick, there are plenty of classic photobombs to choose from done by NBA players and fans at games.
