Kobe Bryant trolls Lakers at ESPYs for awful record

The Los Angeles Lakers finished their 2015-16 campaign with an abysmal 17-65 record, the worst in franchise history. It’s one thing for the 76ers to sport a 10-72 mark, which is awful, but it’s not as big of a shock for them to lose that many games as it is for the Lakers. Even Kobe […]

James Harden laughs as Rockets player misses dunk

NBA summer league action tends to be more entertaining than many would be lead to believe. It’s a place where young players can show off a bit and showboat here and there. But it’s also a stage for embarrassing plays, which is to be expected as the young players earn their stripes get more playing […]

Watch Ben Simmons’ sick no-look dime vs Warriors

It was the Ben Simmons show yet again on Tuesday night when the 76ers squared off against the Warriors. Simmons is a one-man highlight-reel show and is pretty much the only reason NBA fans have tuned into Sixers games, and this sick pass he dished out on Tuesday is proof of that. Check out this […]

Gregg Popovich bids farewell to ‘irreplaceable’ Tim Duncan

San Antonio Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich isn’t one to display much emotion or get overly attached to anyone or anything, but the relationship he and Tim Duncan have is a special one. The two won more games together than any player-coach duo in NBA history (1,001), and were a big reason the Spurs have […]

Watch Draymond Green’s assault arrest video

James Harden signs 4-year deal w/ Rockets

A lot of players have been moved since the NBA’s free-agent market officially opened, but Houston Rockets star James Harden is staying put, apparently. Harden signed a four-year, $118 million deal to remain with the team, according to The Vertical’s Adrian Wojnarowski, which actually appears cheap comparing to some of the other contracts that were […]

D’Angelo Russell curses during interview after hitting game-winning shot

Los Angeles Lakers point guard D’Angelo Russell knows a thing or two about what to do and say while being videotaped, that’s for sure. He recorded Nick Young admitting to cheating on then-fiancee Iggy Azalea, and also gave a pretty interesting postgame interview after Saturday night’s Summer League game. Russell lifted the Lakers to victory […]

Ben Simmons dishes sick dime during game

Philadelphia 76ers new head coach Brett Brown recently said No. 1 overall pick Ben Simmons would see some time at point guard at some point in the future, and judging by some of the sick passes he’s already showcased during summer league play so far, that might be a pretty good idea. Simmons tossed a great […]
