Blake Griffin, DeAndre Jordan and other Clippers play flag football.

Yes, that was Snoop Dogg/Lion or whatever he call himself now, biting Matt Barnes's fake and falling to the ground. Point two for the Clippers.

5'9" Nate Robinson can still throw down dunks with ease.

My one dream is to dunk a basketball like that, so good for you, Nate. Thanks for inspiring all of us 5'9" and under guys. Now I am off to do a million squats.

Matt Bonner is a terrible CEO.

No one man should have all that power, especially not Matt Bonner. Definitely not Matt Bonner.

NBA Rookies pick their personal theme songs.

Not that you care but mine would be "The Lion King's Circle Of Life" because, DUH.

Mike Miller's Off-Season Zumba Workout.

Not a business expert, but choosing a NBA player that has been plagued by injuries throughout most of career to be your representative, is probably not the best way to get people to sign up for your Zumba classes. Then again, what do I know the business of dance fitness? I mean I have only messed with hip-hop abs once or twice in my life and it didn't work out too well. I did learn some hot new dance moves, which I later learned to be socially unacceptable, but that's a story for another time.

Blog Notice: Vacation!

Dudes, I am in Portland and will be for the next three days, so that probably means there will not be any updates until Thursday. I might try to get something up, but seeing that this post took about 20 minutes to upload, don't expect much. Thanks for reading.

Random NBA .GIF of the Day: James Harden USB Beard Drive.

TAKE MY MONEY. Via: Reddit


The New Phoenix Suns Jerseys.

Sleeves are stupid.
A little disappointed with these, but anything is an upgrade for what they had before. SHIVER. Can't they just keep the retro forever? More photos after the jump.

Jeremy Lin's new comedy skit features James Harden and Steve Nash.

Steve Nash really haven't changed a bit. Only true British Columbians will ever say "Take a hike." I can confirm.

Kevin Durant's nickname is "Kevin" in new Nike commercial.

In full support of Kevin "GO GO GADGET ARMS" Durant. I want full credit, Nike.

Listen to James Harden's first new single, "Harden Soul"

Excuse my language, but there's no way there are a single dry pair of panties on any lady that just got their ears caressed by James Harden's sultry voice. ALL THAT BEARD, GIRL.

David Lee and Kent Bazemore dominates at Rucker Park.

I don't know if you know this, but David Lee was once the 2001 McDonald's All American Slam Dunk contest champion, and even beat out James White after he pulled off his infamous two handed free-throw dunk.

Kevin Durant and James Harden really misses each other.

I miss team "Pizza Rolls" too, you guys could have done so much together.

Pistons' Greg Monroe shows off new "Motor City" alternate jerseys.

Took you guys long enough, but those kind of look like the Team USA national jerseys.

Iman Shumpert responds to Kendrick Lamar's verse on "Control" with his own track.

Hey Iman, I think it is wise for a NBA player to stay out of this one. I mean you are good, in comparison to every athlete that tried their hand at rapping, but not like real rapper good. You still have cool hair though.

Stephen Curry convinces James Harden not to sing in new Foot Locker commercial.

James might not have a voice of an angel, but when you make a pun out of your own name in form of a song, I can't be mad. Especially not when he's wearing that beard.

Dikembe Mutomo shares his NBA journey in new Adidas commercials.

I couldn't understand a single word he said, but DIKEMBE MUTOMBO ANYTHING IS A GOOD THING.

Jason Williams fires a half-court bounce pass alley-oop in Taiwan.


Random NBA Photo of the Day: Yao Ming and baby elephant.

From the people that brought you "Yao Ming the Giraffe," here is Yao Ming and a baby elephant. 

This little guy is Kinango, one of the many orphaned elephants, Yao Ming has visited in his journey through Africa to raise awareness for poaching. Via: ZooBorns
Fun Fact: According to the very little research I have done (after watching Lion King), Giraffes, African Elephants, and Ostriches are the only three land animals (counting shoulder height only, of course) taller than Yao Ming. The more you know.

Kevin Durant squares off against Jamal Crawford at the Seattle Pro-Am Game.

6 foot 9 and handles like that should not be possible. Life's not fair.

This is what Russell Westbrook wore to the Teen Choice Awards.

I don't even know how to begin describing what this is. Via: @russwest44
Nope. I can't. No comment.

Nick Young gets crossed up at Summer League.

I know it wasn't exactly the crossover you were expecting, and I too, had my doubts on whether this was an actually good play, but then I saw the referee do the high knees, so I pretty much convinced now.

Michael Jordan still dunking at the age of 50.

Kevin Durant blocking little kids at summer camp.

This is why Kevin Durant is my favorite. We would be the bestest of all best friends and together, we will crush the souls (along with self-esteem) of every child by sending their shot into the abyss.

Lakers fan welcomes Chandler Parsons and his bags to L.A. with a fun taunt.

Whoever did this is so not getting a tip.

Fun times at the NBA Rookie photo-shoot.

One day, someone from the future will see this video and laugh at our supposedly "advanced" 21st century society for only being able to do "The Dougie." Thanks a lot, modern youths. (shamefully includes self)

Victor Oladipo and Cody Zeller dunks on fellow rookies.

Oh, man. I knew it was coming, but this is all too soon. Victor Oladipo just stole my heart, you guys.

NBA Rookies put on a dunk showcase at their photo-shoot.

Here are the best of them.

Archie Goodwin of the Phoenix Suns throwing down a reverse between-the-legs dunk.

Tony Mitchell of the Detroit Pistons doing some nasty stuff.

And lastly, we have a Tim Hardway Jr. (NYK) to Tony Mitchell (DET) to Trey Burke (UTA) double alley-oop one handed slam. C-C-C-COMBO.

Tony Allen will play lock-down defense against your kids.

Banned from all Summer League games, the Tony Allen story. (Getty Images)
Tony Allen never stops playing defense. From The Oklahoman:
He was on the basketball court, so, naturally, Tony Allen couldn't help himself.
Lathered in sweat, the Memphis Grizzlies’ defensive savant was going hard, grit and grind as he calls it, blocking 10-year-olds and posting up 12-year-olds. 
One kid, who dared attempt to cross up Allen at his own basketball camp — this the first ever in Stillwater — had his pocket picked in a drill, with a playful Allen trash-talking him immediately after the steal: “First-Team All-D, baby, First-Team All-D.” 
“I’m actually catching my breath, because one of the kids was pretty good,” Allen admitted after a spirited 3-on-3 game. “Any time I get on the hardwood, I’m competing 110 percent. I even fouled a kid today. That was a little rough, but I got to win.”
Say what you will about Tony Allen, but I am on his side. Have you blocked a kid before? The thrill of crushing a child's soul, as you reach out and block his shot, while yelling "GET OUT OF MA HOUSE" at the top of your lungs, injecting fear deep into their veins, as you watch them hesitate to come near you. It's really the best feeling in the world. Against kids, I am the greatest basketball player ever and also the worst person ever. My 12 year old cousins will tell you that.

Random NBA Clip of the Day: Chris Bosh jumps off a boat.

That's a super weak whip kick, Chris. I am disappointed.

John Wall throws a full-court alley-oop to himself.

Quick ain't fair. And it's not real either.

Blake Griffin meets Drain in new Jordan commercial.

So Drain is basically like the Clipper Baron Davis. Those were fun times. Oh, the music in this was really great too.

James Harden shows you how to do the euro-step.

Oh my, that beard has really grown out of control. And with James's tendency to throw his head back during EVERYSINGLEONE of his moves, defenders better find a way to protect their eyes from that steel wool of a beard. It's probably better just to get out of his way, he's going to "draw" a foul anyway.

See basketball in Roy Hibbert's point of view with Google Glass.

Have you ever wondered what you would be able to see as a 7 footer on a basketball court? Well, here's your answer.

Basketball rims? Basketball rims.

The New Orleans Pelicans unveil their first new uniforms.

These are actually kind of bland. With a new name like the Pelicans, I expected the jerseys to be a little bit more weird, or at least flashier. Really going to miss those old creole blue Hornets road uniforms. But the Pelicans still have a chance to redeem themselves in the unveiling of their mascot. Please do it justice. (And by justice, I mean, giving it a compartment to engulf cheerleaders whole.) More photos after the jump.

LeBron James dunked on a kid from just inside the free-throw line in high school.

Yep, that's definitely LeBron alright. No one reacts to referee calls with the same disgust. Also, the fake icy-hot patches basically gave it away. It's obvious those were to cover up the scars of his newly attached artificial cyborgs limbs, before he gets his arms completely tatted up to hide them. I KNOW YOUR SECRET, BRON.
