This isn’t exactly the “Stay Dwight” campaign that Lakers fans put on last summer, but this is pretty funny as the fans show love for fan favorite Nick Young as he hits free agency.

Congratulations Cleveland Cavaliers!

#Cavs fans, how does Andrew Wiggins (@22wiggins) look in Wine & Gold? #CavsDraft

A post shared by Cleveland Cavaliers (@cavs) on

With the first pick in the 2014 NBA draft, the Cavs got their man, Andrew Wiggins. Fans are already getting the giggles imagining this talented young man in their colors next year.

Andrew Wiggins Pre-Draft Highlights

If you need any reason not to be excited for Wiggins taking the court next year, just take a look at what the Cavs’ scouts saw in his pre-draft workouts.

Vine of the Night

Wiggins also has some off-the-hook swag as many of you saw tonight.

Welcome to the Lakers @juliusrandle30!! You’re gonna look great in purple and gold.

A post shared by Los Angeles Lakers (@lakers) on

Oh y'all didn't know I grew up a LAKER fan?

A post shared by Julius Randle (@juliusrandle30) on

The Hornets and Lakers couldn’t wait to see their new toys in their colors. Both Noah Vonleh and Julius Randle already look like natural fits for the Hornets and Lakers, respectively. Randle must be feeling pretty awesome to be playing next to his childhood idol Kobe Bryant.

YouTube of the Night

In one of the most heartwarming moments of the NBA Draft, Commissioner Adam Silver took a moment to honor and “draft” former Baylor forward Isaiah Austin as he sadly has to give up his basketball career after being diagnosed with Marfan Syndrome. Glad to see Austin get a moment to shake hands with the commissioner after all his hard work.

Swag of the Night

Hawks draftee Adreian Payne was very swagged out for the night as he honored one his biggest fans and best friends eight-year-old Lacey Holsworth who passed away from cancer this year. We love the pink and the bow tie, Adreian, way to keep it classy.

Fans of the Night

Bucks fans react to the #BucksDraft selection of @jabariparker at Summerfest.

A post shared by Milwaukee Bucks (@bucks) on

You know the Bucks fans were happy as they got their man, Jabari Parker tonight.

Throwback of the Night

#TBT Chapter One: The #NBADraft. The journey starts now for you all. Enjoy the ride #carpediem

A post shared by Kobe Bryant (@kobebryant) on

Kobe fondly remembers his special draft day 18 years ago and wishes the best to the fresh round getting their name called tonight.

Cheerleaders of the Day

Congratulations to the newest members of the New York Knicks’ cheerleading team! They certainly are some lovely additions.

Next Man Up? Meet Paris Austin

If you know the know the Oakland basketball scene, you already that junior point guard Paris Austin knows how to ball. Austin is a pure point guard, always looking to set up his teammates and keep everybody involved to go along with his sweet jumper, killer crossover and finishing skills. Keep an eye out for Paris going forward, he’ll make a school very happy who gives him a chance.

Kicks of the Day

Speaking of Oakland ballers, Blazers guard Damian Lillard has an elite sneaker game if you haven’t noticed. Check out these clean white adidas Crazy Quick 2 PE’s.

The Funny, Stupid Thing of the Day

Lakers guard Jeremy Lin and his friends are noticing the stars in the NBA are raking in endorsement deals and want in on the action. Check this great spoof of some well-known commercials and we dare you not to laugh. This five minute video is well worth your time and regardless of your opinion of Lin, you have to admit he’s down-to-earth and jumping at the chance to poke fun at himself.

Instagram of the Day

As part of the NBA Fit campaign, former NBA center Dikembe Mutombo lends his famous blocking skills to swatting away unhealthy snacks in favor of a healthy apple. Thanks for the assist Dikembe! We all need you in our kitchen to help us out sometimes.

Cheerleaders of the Night

There’s only one way to live in New York and the Knicks cheerleaders are leading the way by being classy and beautiful.

Tweet of the Day

Um… OK, Martell and Marcin, we’ll have to take your word on this. Let’s all hope both these haircuts meet the scissors before the season kicks off.

Happy Birthday ‘Sheed!

It's that a real sneaker or a cake. #WhenTheyCuttingIT #holdat #HappyBirthdaySheed

A post shared by Richard Hamilton (@ripcity3232) on

No, this isn’t a fresh sneaker that you may think at first glance. This is actually a birthday cake in honor of the one-and-only Rasheed Wallace. Happy 40th Rasheed!

Rasheed Wallace Highlights

In honor of Rasheed hitting the big 4-0, here’s a great highlight mix of ‘Sheed in his prime. Love him or hate him, there will never be a player as talented and polarizing in the NBA quite like Wallace again.

Swag of the Day

Wizards guard John Wall owned a recent photo shoot with his swag. Looking good doesn’t even to begin to describe Wall this day.

Next Man Up? Meet D’Angelo Allen

Dallas native forward D’Angelo Allen can be seen balling at Missouri this upcoming season and we know we’re not the only ones really looking forward to him taking the court at the next level. Allen is super athletic with a lot of potential and room for growth that Tigers fans can look forward to blossoming before their eyes.

Kicks of the Day

A new season, new #NBAKicks for LeBron! #CavsMediaDay

A post shared by NBA (@nba) on

Jabari Davis



Hilarious Video of the Night

Poetry Friday lil nick was feelin the Spirit lol

A post shared by Nick Young (@swaggyp1) on

Nick Young was having fun with something he called “Poetry Fridays” via Instagram when his son absolutely stole the show at the end of the clip. H/T BSO for the find.

Instagrams of the Night

Step your D up, Dwight. From @dwighthoward's basketball camp this morning via @jennycreech

Dwight Howard has fun with a local kid at one of his camps.

Michael Carter-Williams gets the crowd revved-up for today’s race!

Phenoms of the Week

Damon Harge Jr. can hoop. Simple as that. Class of 2018, by the way. H/T Dime Mag

Ask, and ye shall receive. Malik Monk, everybody. Class of 2016.

Out of Bounds: Happy Birthdays!

Out of Bounds laughs at Blake Griffin’s take on tearaway pants… Happy Birthday Scottie Pippen… Meet Davon Dillard.

Kyle Cape-Lindelin



The Funny, Stupid Thing of the Day

Another addition to Clippers forward Blake Griffin’s hilarious “Slam Dunk Poetry” series features him explaining why tearaway pants are so important to his game. Again, Blake is a man of many talents and humor is definitely one of them.

Dunk of the Day

280lbs in slow mo lol

A post shared by Dwight Howard (@dwighthoward) on

Rockets center Dwight Howard makes everything look so easy, it’s hard to remember that this a 6’10, 280-pound man getting this high up for the slam. Dwight is simply a different level of human, enjoy him doing stuff like this while you can.

YouTube of the Day

We’ve been on the NBA 2K15 bandwagon all summer waiting for this game to drop and the latest trailer just gets us more excited for it. The best part of this isn’t even the gameplay or the graphics, but the choice to have “What’s the Scenario” by A Tribe Called Quest and Busta Rhymes playing along with it is just too perfect.

Happy Birthday Scottie Pippen!

Happy birthday, @scottiepippen!

A post shared by Chicago Bulls (@chicagobulls) on

NBA great Scottie Pippen may unfairly live under Michael Jordan’s shadow, but Scottie is undeniably one of the best NBA players to ever lace them up.  We wish Scottie a happy 49th birthday with this famous poster slam. Our apologies to the Oliver Miller fans out there.

Instagram of the Day

Thunder forward Kevin Durant deserves an early birthday shout-out (KD actually turns 26 September 29th). Check out what Nike did for their star with this sweet cake design only meant for “The Baddest.”

New Uniforms!

Check out the new Mavericks alternate uniforms courtesy of the fans’ designs. Very nice combo of their modern look and throwback 90’s uniforms.

Not to be overlooked, the Pelicans will also be rocking some alternate red uniforms next season.

Next Man Up? Meet Davon Dillard

If you pay attention to some of the best historic basketball cities, Gary, Indiana knows how to produce some ball players.  The next man who is sure to make a name for himself from there is upcoming Class of 2015 forward Davon Dillard. Dillard is strong, smart and confident; but lets be honest, the kid can flat out ball as he can do a little bit of everything well on the court.

Kicks of the Day

Dwight Howard already is picking out his game day shoes for next season, such as these fine adidas.

Swag of the Day

I'll drive.

A post shared by ChandlerParsons (@chandlerparsons) on

After signing his hefty new contract, Mavericks forward Chandler Parsons can afford to throw down some cold cash to roll around in this classy Rolls Royce. You know how to ride, Chandler.
