Yooo. That rim was 12 feet high… https://t.co/fr2SBPXvTl

Dirk has never been known as the fastest guy, or the highest jumper. But what he does do well is score the basketball, which is why he’s 6th on the all time scoring list. It is nice to see when things don’t go his way, such as getting rejected by the rim at 7 feet tall, that he has a sense of humor about it. I hope he plays forever.
The internet can be a cruel beast sometimes, and no one knows the wrath of instant streaming video more than Pau Gasol. Poor Pau thought this was going to be just another night in the NBA, but then Nikola Vucevic comes rumbling down the lane and dunks all over Pau’s greasy head. To make matters worse, Pau just falls to the ground after the dunk. At least stand your ground, man. Naturally Twitter started a ‘RIP Pau Gasol’ gag that ended up trending nationwide pretty quickly. In 2015, it’s probably a better idea to just get out of the way and let the guy dunk, because if you try to block and get dunked on, people are going to think you passed away.
Only white guy on the court may seem a little a bit odd at first glance….then……JAM SESSION. Josh McCown throwing it down all over everyone’s head. We all know he could shoot 3-pointers (he’s white), but the ball handling skills and dunking abilities are something out of a sports fairy tale. Check his shoes for flubber, I don’t believe it.
PS- Hey Josh, playoffs please.
Terrence Ross (My favorite to win)
Nothing is official yet, but this is what the lineup will most likely look like. No Lebron, but I still can’t wait for the all-star break.
Some of my earliest memories from the NBA stem from Vince Carter throwing it down! Between the legs, 360, tomahawk, windmill, you name it, VC has done it. Timmy, I thought you were better than that.
You’d think people would just get out of the way when Blake Griffin gets ready for takeoff. Especially when you’re Chris Humphries. If you’re a professional basketball player and the only reason people know who you are is because you married a Kardashian there’s a solid chance you suck as a professional basketball player. Get out of the way, Chris. Save the little dignity you have left.

You know what this tells me? Popovich and co. need to work on some showmanship. Basketball in recent years has taken a turn for the worst. i.e the “announcement”, anything Ron Artest does, anything Metta World Peace does, David Stern being operated internally by a small alien, and The King who cried foul. I digress. Lets spark up this NBA season and get some viewers back. 5 alley-oops over the past two years? That is unacceptable. That also goes for anyone who is putting up less than 70. Clean up your acts, move the ball, and break some backboards. Don’t make me call Jackie Mooooooon
