The Silly, Funny Picture of the Night

Nothing funny about the actual picture, as the Birthday Cap’ was looking as smooth as ever. The fun comes when you take a look at the H/T, as Kareem’s devastating move of choice was the Sky Hook…not the Dream Shake.

Fan of the Night

There’s just so much going on with this picture…tough to know where to even begin. Is he wearing Mickey Mouse gloves? Are those Charmin Angel’s wings on his back? The glow sticks, matching beard, and flaming tattoo sleeves put this guy right over the top.

Crossover of the Night

Iman Shumpert crossed Paul Pierce over so fierce “Yeet” had to make an appearance.

Gear of the Night

Looking smooth, Eddie Winslow Jr…we mean Zach Randolph. Kidding aside, why does it look as though he’s just about to fling the jacket open to show off the paisley-printed lining? Extra credit to those that can name both entertainment references we just made. (@jabaridavisnba)

You can joke about the “brow” before the game, just so long as you take him seriously while on the court. New Orleans may just be a force to be reckoned with in just a few short years as Anthony Davis continues to develop. Especially if Jrue Holiday can stay healthy and grow right alongside him.

Team Giveaway of the Night

Even though they didn’t make the playoffs, the Suns were easily one of the best stories of the season. They were great on the court, provided all types of awesome fan nights, and this latest event is precisely an example of why things seem to be turning around for the organization. They randomly selected 50 Suns employees to travel with the team for the final road trip of the season.

Cheerleaders of the Night

We're at Wild Wing Cafe at the Epicentre for the #CHAvsCHI pregame party! Come join us!

The Lady Cats want to welcome fans of the Bobcats to their official pregame party. We just wanted to tell each of you, “You’re welcome.”

Rec League All Star Crossover

There’s no telling where this league is, but we had to admit that move was pretty nice.

Dunk of the Night

In today’s episode of “Just Don’t Jump”…this dunk was vicious. Thanks, ‘Ball Is Life’ crew.

Legend of the Night

Happy Birthday to the #NBA's all-time leading scorer!

A post shared by NBA (@nba) on

Nice of the NBA to break down Abdul-Jabbar’s career accomplishments like that. When you have them laid out in front of you, they offer validity to the notion of him being in contention for the “Greatest of All Time” argument.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
