As previously noted on That NBA Lottery Pick, we love New York Knicks forward Metta World Peace and only a few moments, he had another epic Twitter response.

In terms of this year’s rookie class, Sacramento Kings rookie Ben McLemore is in a class by himself.
We’ve seen Ben throw down some pretty epic dunks this season but you might want to check out this pregame dunk before the start of the Kings/76ers game last night.

We all know that Dwight Howard is somewhat of a good impressionist and during a post-practice interview with the fine folks over at Comcast Sportsnet Houston, we know that he added another one to his growing collection.
Check out Dwight busting out a pretty solid Dikembe Mutombo:

Clearly, Dwight’s best impression is still STAN VAN GUNDY:
We already know that Dallas Mavericks forward Vince Carter is one of the best athletes that we have ever seen and at the advanced age of 37, he shows that he can still get up with the best of them.

We all know that Oklahoma City Thunder Kevin Durant can get past any defender in the NBA but could he get past an CFL lineman.
Recently, Durant was hanging out with Devin Tyler of the CFL’s Saskatchewan Roughriders and challenged him to see if he could prevent him from getting to the “imaginary quarterback”.
Let’s see if KD can do it:

After blowing yet another large lead against the Brooklyn Nets, it appeared that Oklahoma City Thunder were heading overtime as they tied the score at 93 after Serge Ibaka lay-up.

Kendrick Perkins might not be a favorite in the Oklahoma City Thunder locker room. It seems that he was left out of a player outing the other night.

As previously noted on That NBA Lottery Pick, we are pretty huge fans of fan-made music videos and recently, the Golden State Warriors decided to create something called #DubSounds looking for original musical songs about the team.

As previously noted here on That NBA Lottery Pick, we love when NBA players miss dunks and during last night’s Clippers/Bobcats affair, we had an epic one.
In the second quarter of play, Zeller got the ball on a transition opportunity after a nice pass from teammate Kemba Walker.

Unless you were Gabrielle Union, you probably didn’t get the chance to celebrate New Years Eve with Miami Heat star Dwyane Wade.

Hopefully, all of you are enjoying the first day of 2014 and it appears that New York Knicks forward Metta World Peace might have enjoyed his a little too much.

Happy Valentines Day.

As you might figure, Metta quickly...

There are times when trash talking in the NBA can be an affective way to get into an opponent’s head but there are times when trash talk doesn’t work.
During tonight’s Wizards/Mavericks game, Washington star John Wall made a simple lay-up and decided to talk trash to Mavericks forward Vince Carter.
Watch Vince’s expression after Wall walks past him:
