Here is create-a-player-with-a-99-in-vertical Derrick Jones Jr. of the Phoenix Suns rudely leaping over a puny mortal in a particularly vicious entry in the Drive-By Dunk Challenge:
Teens with way too much time on their hands struggling to entertain themselves is a hallmark of summer. This can be a bad thing when those teens take their cues from dipshits like Jake Paul, but it can be a very good thing when it leads to something like a summer full of pool dunks. The Drive-By Dunk Challenge fits…
Are sports games not your thing? Or, perhaps, are you too disappointed with the world around you to even pay attention to them—or anything else, really? This guy, too. Things appear to be so bad, in fact, that he deliberately brought in the owner’s manual for his Volvo and read it during a basketball game.
You can leave home again. Pete Strickland, an American who as a young man served as a Johnny Appleseed of basketball in Ireland, is going back, this time to coach the Irish national team.
An RV fire between Redwood City and San Carlos, California brought traffic to an extended halt, prompting one guy to get out a basketball and work on his moves.
Every team wants the perfect draft pick. It's a deceptively simple-sounding goal that haunts every executive in sports, because they are being asked to do the nearly impossible—predict what human beings will do. Sure, every few years a player like Andrew Luck or Bryce Harper comes along who simply can't fail (even…
Look at Smuggy McSmuggykins Jeff Gordon flying off with the lead in this trike race. It's one thing to race another Washington Wizards basketball fan on a tricycle. It's another thing to completely dominate at it, man.
Shaquille O'Neal, who I believe is an Irish sporting icon, says that the scariest thing he ever did was try and become a race car driver. I thought it would be trying to shoot a free throw. Zing!
Andrew Garfield took a couple minutes off the set of Not Another Spider-Man Movie to shoot some hoops on a court in New York's Chinatown. In full costume.
Is this really Shaquille O'Neal's Porsche Panamera for sale? How many other guys named Shaq do you know who played in the NBA?
Five-foot, eight-and-a-half-inch-tall Formula One world champion Lewis Hamilton tweeted this picture of himself standing next seven-foot, six-inch-tall Yao Ming. Strangely, it's not the first time an NBA center made an F1 driver look like a toy.
The '79 Volkswagen Rabbit (that's a Golf to you shifty-eyed foreign types) probably didn't accelerate very rapidly with Mr. Chamberlain aboard, what with its 71-horsepower engine and all. But it has enough headroom- somehow- to accommodate a 7-footer. Wait, did we say 71 horsepower? Make that 48 horses for the Diesel…
Now that we've found this Zapruder-esque film, we know it is possible for a white man to jump clear over a corvette and dunk a basketball. Of course, we've no idea why he'd do such a thing — we at least now know it can happen. Woody Harrelson be damned.
