In case you missed it, DeAndre Jordan wears the Under Armour Spine Bionic. Sure, it’s a custom colorway, but you know you’ll be able to dunk like this just be wearing these shoes… or not…

For some odd reason, I got to thinking about that classic game Dr. J and Larry Bird Go One on One and now have a hankering to play this game in its old school glory. Those spinning in the air, backwards shots by Bird or the swooping to the rim dunks by the Doctor? It […]
You ever participate in those March Madness brackets with the weighted scoring system where whoever picks the final winning team typically wins the bracket? Yeah, it’s pretty standard, and it’s kind of a bummer scoring system. A biostatistician, Ted Gooley, developed a more equitable way of assigning points based on many variables. I won’t explain […]
Now that Super Bowl XLVII is officially done, it’s okay to catch up on other sports, especially Kyrie Irving’s performance against the Thunder. Watch the highlights of the last few minutes of the Cavs & Thunder game, and you’ll see Kyrie pull off some absolutely sick shots. You know it’s gotta be the shoes!
It’s the NBA so it’s okay if picks and screens shift around a tad. But really, the magic is the finish by James Harden. Though you have to give it to your teammates who do the dirty work like setting screens.
Can you really call this attempt a free throw?!
Check out this video comparing the moves of MJ and the Black Mamba. What surprises me more is the amount of time it must have taken to sift through all this footage! Now that’s passion.
I find some humor in the shared birthdays of the Black Mamba and JLin, especially after this exchange. Anyways, Happy Birthdays are in order for a pair of NBA’s finest!

Okay, that was painful, but this is even more painful. Here’ Gasol again being manhandled by Blake Griffin. Here’s a clip of both monster dunks Griffin had against the Lakers, including the reverse angle slow motion replay.
I had seen this dunk while watching the game on ESPN. Trust me, it looked way worse with the reverse camera angle, in slow motion, and in HD. You could see Gasol’s expression all the way.
