Tim Duncan Gets SUPER-Excited in Latest Foot Locker Spot

Tim Duncan Gets SUPER-Excited in Latest Foot Locker Spot

It’s almost holiday time. And as the “shopping season” gets pushed earlier and earlier, it means brands and marketers are turning on their efforts as well. Luckily, that means the “week of greatness” is back from Foot Locker. The weeklong pre-Turkey Day blitz from the footwear retailer traditionally integrates athletes and does so in a […]

LeBron Returns to Akron in Powerful New Beats by Dre Commercial

LeBron Returns to Akron in Powerful New Beats by Dre Commercial

Beats by Dre did it again. This time LeBron is the featured star. The formula doesn’t deviate from previous Beats communications. Because it shouldn’t. Music that tells a story. Beautiful visual storytelling. Content that makes you ponder and discuss. It’s even got its own title: Re-established in 2014. It’s a clever nod to the tattoo […]

LeBron James is Coming Home to Cleveland...and He Did It Right

LeBron James is Coming Home to Cleveland…and He Did It Right

There are certain sports moments that, as a human with a blog, you simply have to respond to in writing. If nothing else, because they are historic. Perhaps that phrase is an overstatement, but I’d argue not. The greatest player in the NBA — and one who continues to push himself in the G.O.A.T. discussion […]

Time for LeBron to Start Acting Like He's Been There Before

Time for LeBron to Start Acting Like He’s Been There Before

The Miami Heat defeated the Brooklyn Nets in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Finals on Wednesday night in Miami. The Nets played poorly down the stretch, and the Heat showed their mettle. None of that surprised me. Nor did I think any of it really worth commentary. What did catch my eye though was […]

KD's Tearful MVP Speech for the Ages

KD’s Tearful MVP Speech for the Ages

Kevin Durant’s MVP speech was everything it should be. Sincere. Emotional. Appreciative. Humble. Respectful. Oh, and it will also make you cry. Some brand is likely reaching out to Durant right now with a multi-million dollar deal around a Mother’s Day campaign. Mark it down. Well done, KD. A well-deserved award and a fitting acceptance […]

LA Clippers Home Page Blackout: We Are One

LA Clippers Home Page Blackout: We Are One

NBA commissioner Adam Silver recently announced a lifetime ban for Donald Sterling. The LA Clippers site now features this image on its home page. Interesting times… Looking forward to this evening. Hopefully, this cloud temporarily passes over the players, and they can play the game. Let’s go, Clip Joint.

VIDEO: Knicks Fan’s YouTube Rant of Year (NSFW)

Forget about write-ups. If you’re a Knicks fan, or even if you’re not, just watch this. CAN’T BELIEVE I missed this. A longtime Knickerbocker backer goes off following the team’s embarrassing 41-point blowout home loss to the Boston Celtics on December 8th. Quite possibly, the best YouTube sports rant I’ve ever witnessed. This man speaks […]

Houston Rockets sing "I Have a Little Dreidel" in honor of hanukkah's first night

Houston Rockets sing “I Have a Little Dreidel” in honor of hanukkah’s first night

The Houston Rockets once again took to the video camera and Interwebs to make sure Hanukkah gets its just due. To celebrate the first night of the festival of lights, players sung along to the classic jam “I Had a Little Dreidel.” The results are predictably fantastic. Nicely done, Rockets.

Reminded that Melo just isn't among the NBA's truly elite players

Reminded that Melo just isn’t among the NBA’s truly elite players

There are some moments that bring things to light that you knew were there. Instances that provide clarity based on contrast. Last night’s Knicks-Bulls game was one of those occasions. It was a subtle reminder to any of those delusional Knicks fans (of whom there are droves) that NO, Carmelo Anthony isn’t among the NBA’s […]

Metta World Peace Rocks Subway From Queensbridge to MSG Debut

Metta World Peace Rocks Subway From Queensbridge to MSG Debut

I’ve got to admit it. Misguided or not, the signing of Metta World Peace was by far my favorite move Knicks move this offseason. Sure, he promises some occasionally unwanted entertainment (although he guarantees some high-quality comedic relief too). And, yes, he’s getting older and his health worries me. That said, it’s great to see […]

Chris Smith Makes the Knicks and Reminds Us How Ridiculous the Knicks Really Are

Chris Smith Makes the Knicks and Reminds Us How Ridiculous the Knicks Really Are

When I was a college kid pledging a fraternity, we occasionally talked about “package deals.”  It was in the context of rush. Hey, we can’t give this kid a bid unless we give this one, they’re a “package deal.” Whenever that kind of talk popped up, it got quickly squashed. It was stupid. You should […]

Serge Ibaka as Prince Akeem Wins Halloween Early

Serge Ibaka as Prince Akeem Wins Halloween Early

This is just fantastic stuff via SB Nation.   My personal passion for Halloween may have faded but that doesn’t mean I don’t appreciate a winner. Check this out from Oklahoma City Thunder big man Serge Ibaka. Really, what else needs to be said? Apparently, this is what Ibaka rocked to a Halloween-themed party hosted by […]
