Blake Griffin Overwhelms The Sixers, In 2018 Blake Griffin Overwhelms The Sixers, In 2018

I don’t know if I’ve ever exactly forgotten about Blake Griffin, but certainly the time spent last season toiling away on irrelevant Clippers and Pistons squads didn’t help restore any of the prestige lost during three seasons spent mostly in injury hell. It seems like whole eras have passed since Griffin was the next…

Shameless Joel Embiid Flop Gets Andre Drummond Tossed From One-Possession Game

This moment didn’t wind up deciding Tuesday night’s excellent Sixers-Pistons game, but certainly removing his counterpart from the game made it a worthwhile ploy for Joel Embiid. With the score tied in the final minute of regulation, Embiid beat Andre Drummond to the cup for a tough bucket; as the ball fell through…

The Rapidly Expanding Rajon Rondo-Chris Paul Beef Now Includes Daryl Morey And Glen Davis The Rapidly Expanding Rajon Rondo-Chris Paul Beef Now Includes Daryl Morey And Glen Davis

Things get exhausting now much more quickly than ever before. Whereas the great NBA beefs of old could unspool interestingly over the course of years, this latest Rajon Rondo-Chris Paul beef has gone from punches (and spit) flying to maybe the NBA should go back to bed for a couple months in just under 48 hours. I…

Celebrating Goober Shooed Away From Lakers Bench After Hitting $30,000 Half-Court Shot

Lots of basketball happened tonight. Much of it was meaningless, or ridiculous, or both. This here is the basketball highlight of the night, though it happened during halftime:

The Celtics Should Consider Doing More Scoring  The Celtics Should Consider Doing More Scoring 

Here’s an annoying early season NBA trend: The Boston Celtics, favorites to gain supremacy in a LeBron-less Eastern Conference, have the worst offensive rating in the NBA, following an ugly 93–90 home loss to the lowly Orlando Magic Monday night. In a season thus far marked by outrageously prolific scoring…

Don't Miss The Kemba Walker Show Don't Miss The Kemba Walker Show

A surefire way of embarrassing yourself is by saying anything optimistic-sounding about the Charlotte Hornets based on something they do in the first month of an NBA season. They finished each of the last two seasons with 36 wins, and their biggest roster upgrade headed into this season involved jettisoning Dwight…

Odell Beckham Jr.'s Extended Meltdown Continues

The Giants are getting flattened by the Eagles Thursday night. It’s a dismal show, bad enough that almost anyone could be forgiven for bailing on it early. But not everyone! Some people should stick around. Like, for example, Odell Beckham Jr., who was spotted marching angrily to the locker room with the offense on…

Michael Kay Says Yankees Lost To Red Sox Because Math Can't Account For The Soul Of A Baseball Or Whatever Michael Kay Says Yankees Lost To Red Sox Because Math Can't Account For The Soul Of A Baseball Or Whatever

You are going to groan so loudly that everyone within a five-mile radius will hear it and several of them will immediately call the police when you listen to this conversation from The Michael Kay Show, about the failures that caused the Yankees to lose to the Red Sox in the ALDS. It’s unbearable.

Report: Adidas Allegedly Funneled Money To Families Of DeAndre Ayton And Dennis Smith Jr. Report: Adidas Allegedly Funneled Money To Families Of DeAndre Ayton And Dennis Smith Jr.

The more reports you read from the ongoing wire fraud case against three Adidas representatives, the more it becomes obvious that the world of basketball recruiting is churning with cash, such that the only reason anyone inside of it could conceivably resist paying college athletes officially is to protect a lot of…

Jimmy Butler Continues Trashing The Timberwolves And Karl-Anthony Towns In Post-Practice Interview Jimmy Butler Continues Trashing The Timberwolves And Karl-Anthony Towns In Post-Practice Interview

The Minnesota Timberwolves are having such a bad day today. It started with Jimmy Butler showing up late to practice, subbing himself into five-on-five scrimmages, and taking a gigantic shit on basically every central figure in the organization—Tom Thibodeau, Scott Layden, Andrew Wiggins, and especially Karl-Anthony…

CC Sabathia got touched up for five hits, two walks, and three runs over three lousy innings Tuesday night, and took the loss in Boston’s series-clinching win over the Yankees. Afterward, he lit up umpire Ángel Hernández, who was behind the plate in Game 4:

Red Sox Survive Near Ass-Shitting, Eliminate Yankees Red Sox Survive Near Ass-Shitting, Eliminate Yankees

The Red Sox went for the kill Tuesday night. Ahead 4–1 headed to the bottom of the eighth inning, Alex Cora sent ace Chris Sale to the mound in relief. This should of course not screw with Sale’s availability in the ALCS, but it is for sure not a decision that was taken lightly.

Good Dog Throws A Mean Alley-Oop Good Dog Throws A Mean Alley-Oop

Max Pearce is an extremely good dunker. He participated in the 2018 College Dunk Contest, where he threw down a memorable and pleasingly violent one-handed self-alley-oop while filming himself with a cell phone in his off hand. The website of Purchase College says Pearce has signed with the Harlem Globetrotters, where…
