This is probably the best case scenario for the New York Knicks, per Alan Hahn: #Knicks announce second opinion on Stoudemire’s back agreed with initial prognosis: non-surgical treatment. He is out 2-4 weeks. Here is an official statement from the New York Knicks: “Amar’e will return to New York from Miami, FL today after seeking a [...]
Portland Trailblazer Nicolas Batum attempts to go in for a powerful dunk, but is rejected, in a big way, by Oklahoma City Thunder’s Serge Ibaka, but also by Russell Westbrook. Thunder would go on to win the match 109-95.
This is really nothing more than Kobe Bryant being, well, Kobe Byant: “Why is everybody acting like we are in 8th place? You guys were kissing the Clippers’ ass at the start of the season and now here we are in the third seed and everybody is acting like we suck. I don’t understand.” It’s [...]
Paul Sturgess, other wise known as “Tiny” plays on the Harlem Globetrotters. He also happens to be the tallest basketball player in the world measuring in at 7’8″ and weighs a hefty 325 pounds. He is crowned as the World’s Tallest Professional Basketball Player, but it’s his “tiny” dunk that is bringing him notoriety.
Dennis Rodman joins the ranks of other broke professional athletes as his ex-wife has filed papers on The Worm for not paying child support. Dennis’ ex-wife Michelle Rodman filed new papers this month, claiming The Worm owes $808,935 in unpaid child support for his 9- and 10-year-old children — and an additional $51,441 in unpaid spousal [...]
UH-OH! Someone sounds a bit possessive!! “Chris Paul will be with me for a lifetime,” Sterling said. “And Blake will too. I’m not going to ever let these guys go. They are max players, and so you’re going to pay that and keep them.” Someone may want to tell Clippers’ owner, Donald Sterling, that CP3 is [...]
Carmelo Anthony led his New York Knicks to a win in a pivotal game against an Eastern Conference team, the Milwaukee Bucks. Carmelo was a bit more like the Denver Nuggets Melo, and less like the brick layer he has shown with the Knicks; he racked up 28 points and 12 rebounds in the outing, but [...]
No….. I. Am. Serious. Black Sports Online has the full story: From Jeff Caplan’s recap of a day at the Dallas Zoo for completely mundane teammates Delonte West and Lamar Odom: “Well, I think they noticed as soon as I came into the zoo my natural animal instinct, you know what I mean?” Delonte said, speaking of [...]
Yeah, THAT really happened. Denver PARALYZED the Chicago Bulls and came away with a win against a Rose-less team; 108-91. This Denver Nuggets squad did a 180 degree turn from the team fans have witnessed over the past two games. Did I expect this??? Is water dry?? Is the sun cold?? Am I an innocent?? You [...]

Here is a tidbit about Channing Frye’s mother in a show she is developing entitled “Basketball Moms.” While she tries to find a permanent TV home for “Girlfriends,” she’s also developing another show, “Basketball Moms,” which follows six women who live together as they share stories about their sons and confront their own issues, including [...]
John Stockton is an NBA player of my youth and brings a smile to my soul. Happy Birthday, John.
No, this isn’t some internet hoax, but this really did HAPPEN! This is pure HILARITY, but c’mon now, this is why he’s being rested in a compacted schedule. Duncan is old. Point blank. S/O Black Sports Online
With 4:30 minutes remaining in the Thunder and Heat game, Kendrick Perkins dunks, and while coming down imprints his foot and nearly teabags Dwyane Wade. SALTY.
Down by 14 points, with moments left in the 3rd quarter, Dwyane Wade drains a shot from about 68 feet. Going into the 4th quarter it was Thunder: 80 Heat: 69 SWEET BABY JESUS!! S/O Jose3030
It’s not a secret that LeBron James, although one of the most hated athletes of today’s generations, is a stand-up guy. He just is. He embraces his fans, his hometown, his charities and this, being a daughter of a serviceman, is icing on the cake for me. Some of them wanted pictures with the players, [...]
PASS THE ROCK
I LOVE THIS GAME!

WHELP!!! According to Bill Simmons, the Clippers front office was bursting at the seams to fire Vinny Del Negro, but Donald Sterling overruled it.
FROM BAD TO WORSE
A terrible year for Lamar Odom got even worse on Friday night, as he was reportedly benched by Rick Carlise who wanted to "look at a different rotation."
If any NBA fan missed the double OT thrilla between the OKC Thunder and Minnesota Timberwolves, you need to send yourselves to time out because that Friday night game was pure NBA MADNESS!! OKC ended up pulling out the win; 149-140. Russell Westbrook set a career-high with 45 points and Kevin Love had his own career night [...]
The Clippers are headed downhill at an alarming rate, and the thing that should be made most aware, is that the Western Conference is as tight as it gets for playoff births. One loss, a team can go from a 5th seeding out of the top seeding entirely. Time is not on the Los Angeles [...]
As Beck said, Denver NEEDS to get off neutral and push the pedal all the way to the floorboard and TAKE OFF!!! Friday’s game against the Utah Jazz was a tie-breaker game and was of extreme importance, but apparently they never received that memo as they STUNK in Utah. Denver’s performance was PATHETIC, embarrassing, and for [...]
