This is Russell Westbrook slamming on Lamar Odom

April 22, 2010

Russell Westbrook doesn’t often get compared to the likes of Derrick Rose and John Wall as being the most athletic point guard in recent memory, but he should certainly be in the discussion.

Lamar is playing like a dude having some woman problems. I wonder how things are going with Khloe?

Luol Deng clowns LeBron James

April 22, 2010

This is Charles Barkely using the Shake-Weight

April 21, 2010

I missed this bit of broadcasting hilarity the other night on TNT. Better late than never…

Game 2 between Charlotte and Orlando is just dreadful to watch. Currently, Larry Brown has Larry Hughes AND Tyrus Thomas in the game. Yikes.

This is LeBron’s Game 2 dunk against the Bulls

April 19, 2010

Seldom-used rookie James Johnson actually did alright against LeBron, just not on this particular play:

James poured in 40 points, grabbed eight rebounds, and dished out eight assists as Cleveland pulled away late to beat Chicago 112-102.

This is Dan Boyle’s EPIC fail

April 19, 2010

The San Jose Sharks always seem to find ways to lose in the postseason. Veteran Sharks defenseman Dan Boyle made a colossal mistake late Sunday night in Denver, when he attempted to shoot the puck around the boards but instead shot it into his own net, giving Colorado an improbable 1-0 win in overtime.

Yikes.

Meanwhile, Dany Heatley’s status for the series is uncertain. Heatley didn’t play Sunday while dealing with a mysterious “upper body injury.” Sharks coach Todd McLellan said Heatley should be in the lineup for Game 4 on Tuesday.

The Avs lead the series 2-1.

It’s Always Sunny in Vancouver

April 16, 2010

As I watched the Canucks 3-2 overtime win over the L.A. Kings Thursday, I could help but notice the animated Green Men sitting next to the penalty box. This isn’t the first time college students Ryan Sullivan and Adam Forsythe have worn the hilarious suits, which they originally intended to debut at a Seattle Seahawks game.

Now that their stunt has made national news, it seems likely that they will provide inspiration across the sports landscape during the NHL and NBA playoffs.

Marisa Miller embarrasses Derrick Rose–Again

April 14, 2010

Derrick Rose dazzled Tuesday as the Bulls knocked-off the Celtics in Chicago, scoring a career-high 39 points. Supermodel Marisa Miller was in attendance, and joined Rose in a postgame interview conducted by TNT’s Craig Sager and his technicolor suit.

Rose met Miller last year when he took part in Victoria’s Secret “What’s Sexy Now Chicago?” competition, when the two played one-on-one at the Bulls practice facility and posed for photos. Rose was named Chicago’s sexiest athlete, ahead of Patrick Kane and Brian Urlacher.

D Rose has a long way to go before he will look comfortable talking to the media. It might have been embarrassing, but at least he got to hug a supermodel.

I would settle for being able to do a reverse dunk–although a hug from Marisa wouldn’t be bad either.

Rasheed Wallaces makes layup for the Bulls

April 14, 2010

It’s safe to say Rasheed has been a disappointment in Boston.

This is Derrick Rose’s reverse jam against Boston

April 14, 2010

James Harden jams in Martell Webster’s face

April 13, 2010

James Harden and his magic beard threw down last night in Portland. The best part of the highlight is the Thunder broadcast team’s call, which can be heard in the final 10 seconds of this clip.

“A tisket, a tasket, there’s a defender in my basket.” Nice.

Portland rallied to a win against OKC, meaning the Thunder will face the Lakers in the First Round. That might not be such a bad thing after all.

This is Sasha Vujacic dunking on the Blazers

April 12, 2010

Sasha shocked just about everybody, especially Marcus Camby, when he dropped the hammer during Sunday’s loss to the Blazers.

I loved Jeff Van Gundy’s reaction; “First of all, I’m not falling for that fake, I know he doesn’t want to pass.”

This is a dude getting stuck in the basket

April 9, 2010

I’ve never seen anything quite like this:

Was that a dunk contest? I would have given that dunk a 2, although it didn’t look like there was much talent in the gym.

This is a Jr. High girls basketball dunk attempt gone wrong

April 8, 2010

Add this to the long collection of dunk attempts gone horribly wrong. I’m not sure the girl–Kelsey–would have gotten anywhere close to the rim, but I think that was the idea. You have to wonder how the girls orchestrated the hilarious stunt.

I’m not exactly sure why that move is illegal. I’m all for anything that makes the game more exciting–it wouldn’t take much.

This is Ronnie Price with a facial

April 9, 2010

Chase Budinger had no idea what was about to happen:

Tiger Woods’ new Nike spot

April 8, 2010

The marketing gurus at Nike came up with this ad, a pathetic attempt at repairing Tiger’s image, featuring the late Earl Woods, not exactly a pillar of morality himself, asking his son what he was thinking:

The quickest way to make people forget: win. I’m guessing Tiger will finish in the top-30, but don’t expect him in the final group on Sunday.

This is Butler coach Brad Stevens on Letterman

April 7, 2010

Letterman offers a year of his salary to get Stevens to coach Ball State and tells the Butler head coach his team’s offense was tough to watch. I couldn’t agree more.

It’s nice to see a young coach who isn’t an arrogant jackass for a change.

Tiger Woods faces the media in Augusta

April 5, 2010

Tiger Woods held his much-anticipated press conference after completing his practice round Monday in Augusta in preparation for the Masters. Surprisingly, the normally-soft golf media manned-up and asked some tough questions, ranging from his condition on the night of his fateful run-in with the fire hydrant to the nature of his treatment.

Here is Part One of the lengthy press conference, courtesy of TMZ.

Tiger did a good job of dodging the tough questions without appearing to be overly standoffish. He also didn’t really say anything that hadn’t already been said.

Things won’t always this easy for Tiger. At some point, he will have to face the music.

This is Mark Buehrle’s incredible play

April 5, 2010

The first full day of MLB action was overshadowed a bit by an entertaining National Championship game, but Mark Buehrle’s play against the Indians was a sight to behold. Here it is:

Mercy indeed, Hawk.

Joakim Noah dunks on Jason Maxiell

March 29, 2010

The Bulls have totally fallen apart in the last month, thanks primarily to injuries to Joakim Noah and Luol Deng. Noah looked healthy on this play, but it would probably be better if the Bulls missed the playoffs so he could begin his recovery from plantar fasciitis. There’s really no point in making the playoffs only to get slaughtered by the Cavs, is there?

J.J. Redick’s bizarre basket

March 29, 2010

J.J. Redick got the start for an injured Vince Carter Sunday and had the best game of his career, finishing 23 points, eight rebounds, and seven assists as the Magic beat the listless Nuggets. His final bucket was strange to say the least:

Josh Smith’s game-winning dunk against the Magic

March 25, 2010

Josh Smith capped off a strong game with this put-back dunk to help the Hawks beat the Magic and clinch a playoff berth.

Nice box-out Rashard.

Al Horford dunks on Tim Duncan

The final thrilling seconds between Maryland and Michigan State

March 21, 2010

Highlights of Northern Iowa’s win over Kansas

March 21, 2010

This is the best of Gus Johnson

March 19, 2010

As I watch Gus Johnson manage to make what would otherwise be a very painful Florida State-Gonzaga game exciting, I thought I would check out some of his more memorable calls. Here is a nice montage for your viewing–and listening–pleasure.

Gus Johnson could probably make Division III softball exciting. Maybe that’s why I don’t mind the creepy coincidence that he always seems to be calling upsets I really don’t want to happen.

This is Ishmael Smith sending Texas home

March 18, 2010

Ish Smith brought Texas’ disappointing season to a bitter end late Thursday night, when his shot in the closing seconds lifted Wake Forest to victory:

It should be fun to watch Smith and John Wall go at it Saturday.

This is Ali Farokhmanesh sending UNI to victory

March 18, 2010

No. 9 Northern Iowa knocked-off No. 8 UNLV in thrilling fashion Thursday in Oklahoma City, as sharp-shooter Ali Farokhmanesh drilled a deep 3 with 4.9 seconds remaining to send the Pante to victory:

Who knows what tomorrow has in store…

This is Murray State kicking off the Madness

March 18, 2010

Vanderbilt was seconds away from escaping the First-Round despite having been outplayed for the majority of the game by Murray State. Then this happened:

Danero Thomas’ jumper gave the Racers their first NCAA Tournament victory since 1988.

This is LeBron’s alley-oop against the Pacers

March 18, 2010

Earl Watson was really the key to this play–apparently he was the only one who didn’t know Mo Williams would try a lob to LeBron.

The Cavs’ broadcasters are very annoying to say the least.

This is Herb Pope’s groin punch against Texas Tech

March 17, 2010

What is it with Texas Tech players lately? A couple weeks after Baylor women’s star Brittney Griner attacked the Lady Raiders, Seton Hall men’s star went after goofy Darko Cohadarevic with multiple elbows to the groin in Tuesday’s First-Round NIT matchup.

Pope had a fantastic year at Seton Hall and might think about declaring for the NBA Draft. Character issues have been a problem for Pope in high school and at his previous stint at New Mexico State. He should fit right in at the next level.

This is Corey Brewer dunking on Robin Lopez

March 17, 2010

Brewer has quietly put together a solid season after sucking through two injury-plagued years. This dunk over the Suns’ Robin Lopez wasn’t quite as good as his dunk over Derek Fisher early this season, but it was still pretty damn nasty.

This is LeBron’s reverse dunk against Philly

March 13, 2010

Cavs’ TV color commentator Austin Carr sounds like he is auditioning for Walt Frazier’s Just for Men gig…

Tone it down a bit dude.

This is Evan Turner beating Michigan at the buzzer

March 11, 2010

Turner took advantage of John Beilein’s idiocy and hit a sensational shot at the buzzer. I’m still trying to figure out how everyone–including the moronic Ed Hightower–failed to notice the clock didn’t start right away when Turner took the inbounds pass.

More on Turner later today here on ToTheTin.

This is J.R. Smith’s crazy 360 alley-oop dunk

March 11, 2010

There’s really not much to say about this…just watch and dream:

Talk about absurd.

Don’t Flinch! Kobe vs. Matt Barnes

March 7, 2010

ABC’s Jeff Van Gundy was astounded at Kobe Bryant for not even flinching when Matt Barnes faked a pass at his head. So was I:

This is Brittney Griner throwing a punch

March 4, 2010

Baylor and Texas Tech tangled last night in Lubbock, with Baylor’s Brittney Griner throwing a punch at Texas Tech’s Jordan Barncastle:

Griner and Barncastle exchanged words when the teams met earlier this season. Griner is a really good player; at 6’6″ she can dunk with relative ease–not Candace Parker style either–totally legit.

Griner will most likely be suspended for Baylor’s final regular season game against Texas and likely for the duration of the Big 12 tournament. It’s possible she could be suspended for the remainder of the season, but that seems unlikely and excessive.

What is it with violence in women’s college sports these days? I kinda like it.

Jordan Williams dunks on Jon Scheyer

March 4, 2010

Maryland’s talented freshman gave Scheyer some quailty sac time during Wednesday’s win over Duke:

I hate when fans rush the floor–Maryland beating Duke isn’t exactly the upset of the decade.

This is LeBron’s dunk that didn’t count

March 1, 2010

Exhibit No. 3,456 of why the NBA needs to bribe LeBron to enter the dunk contest:

I just can’t imagine LeBron getting excited about playing for the Knicks after savagely abusing them for years now without breaking a sweat.

Kevin Durant can’t climb Mount Manu

February 25, 2010

Ginobili and the Spurs ended KD’s 25+ scoring streak at 27 Wednesday in San Antonio. Manu is getting up there, but here’s proof that he can still ball:

It’s hard to believe that Durant is only 21 years old…yikes.

This is Kobe beating the Grizzlies

February 24, 2010

Kobe Bryant is a certified soul crusher. He did it again last night against the Grizz in his first game back from an ankle injury that sidelined him for two weeks.

O.J. Mayo missed two free throws with 18.8 seconds remaining that left the door open for Kobe to do his thing. The Grizz have now lost seven of ten.

Tiger’s apology draws tears from Golf Channel’s Charlie Rymer

Following Friday’s awkward apology heard ’round the world, Gold Channel analyst Charlie Rymer was asked to comment. He took it a step further, choking back tears:

Golf commentators are historically soft, but this was just too much. I should also mention ESPN’s Hannah Storm appeared to be on the verge of opening the floodgates while recapping Tiger’s statements. Stop crying and start hoping–the PGA Tour, the Golf Channel and ESPN need Tiger to get back on tour ASAP.

This is Chandler Parsons beating NC State

This is Michael Beasley’s angry dunk

This is Carmelo Anthony dropping 50 on the Knicks

This is A.J. Price clowning Jerel McNeal

Price dropped a career-high 35 on Marquette last night, including this ankle-breaker…I believe that Jerel McNeal is the reigning Big East defensive player of the year, which makes it even more impressive…

This is Russell Westbrook’s nasty dunk

This is an absolutely nasty dunk that I’ve seen three times in the last five minutes.

This is James White’s D-League Dunk Contest throw-down

Can we just come out and say it: The NBA’s dunk contest is mediocre.

The D-League’s, on the other hand, is not. It’s sensational. This is James White’s badass dunk from last weekend’s contest…
