Is this the greatest flop ever?

Is this the greatest flop ever?

PJ Hairston was trying to draw a foul against Tony Parker last night. What he ended up drawing was a $5,000 flopping fine and an Oscar nomination.  The flop has already inspired appreciations like this… but the question is… is this the greatest flop of all time?

The dumpster fire in Cleveland is still raging

We poked some fun at the Cavs mediocre record in this morning’s Dump, but there’s nothing funny about the revelations in this column from ESPN’s Brian Windhorst: They see players appearing to run different plays than the bench calls, see assistant coach Tyronne Lue calling timeouts literally behind Blatt’s back during games, and hear Cavs [...]

Danny Ainge better have one eye on Serge Ibaka in OKC

More than one third into the season and the OKC Thunder sit two games under .500 (15-17) and 10th in the West. Having battled foot and ankle injuries, Kevin Durant has played in just nine games. You’d think Serge Ibaka, the Thunder’s 3rd wheel, would get more touches with Durant out of the line-up. He [...]

Anthony Davis rejects everything Kendrick Perkins has to offer

Anthony Davis rejects everything Kendrick Perkins has to offer

Kendrick Perkins does everything right on this post move. Backs his opponent in, creates space with the shoulder bump, and goes with the usually block-proof jump hook. The only problem? He went up against super freak Anthony Davis. (h/t Deadspin) [...]
