The Funny, Stupid Thing of the Day

Ouch, who doesn’t get offended if nobody says Happy Birthday on your big day? At least Thunder center Steven Adams has a sense of humor about it while making his Twitter fan base feel bad about themselves. Make this a late Happy Birthday from us, big man!

Dream Dunk 2015 Contest

While we’re all crossing our fingers that Cavaliers forward Andrew Wiggins, Timberwolves guard Zach LaVine and Magic forward Aaron Gordon all decide to compete in the dunk contest next year, the always awesome Ball is Life crew gave us a preview of what we could be in store for with this great mix. Make this happen NBA, make this happen!

Kobe Invades Seattle

Lakers guard Kobe Bryant took a trip to get in on Seahawks star cornerback Richard Sherman’s celebrity softball game. Here’s a great photo of him, Clippers guard and Seattle native Jamal Crawford and Seattle legend Gary Payton.

While in Seattle, Kobe also stopped by for the Seattle Pro-Am hosted by Crawford, who pays the ultimate respect of giving Kobe the title of the “Michael Jordan of his generation.” Way to stay classy Crawford, we’re sure Kobe will still try to tear your heart out on the court after giving you a hug off it.

Fail of the Day

Ugh, this was not a pretty sequence by Knicks guard J.R. Smith during a game at the Drew League in Los Angeles. Not only did he get his pocket picked, but he winds up on the wrong side of a vicious dunk on the other end. J.R. is always willing to admit when someone gets him as he tweeted, although we have to give him credit for getting the win in the end.

YouTube of the Day

Nothing like watching your son play ball to get your spirits up and “The King” LeBron James is no exception. Check out LeBron being a proud Poppa as his boy LeBron James Jr. shows off his own moves on the court.

Next Man Up? Meet Connor Vanover

When watching this mix, just keep in mind Connor Vanover is a legit seven-footer and is only in the eighth grade. You heard right, that’s Class of 2018! While Vanover still has a long way to go, being that big at that age and having a shooting touch is a great way to start. Now go hit the weights and eat a sandwich, Connor, you’re going to have to put some meat on those bones if you want to play with the big boys someday.

Yeah, you don’t look bad Quincy Pondexter, but you have nothing on Lakers forward Xavier Henry when it comes to being swagged out.

We all know HEAT guard Dwyane Wade answers to no one about how he dresses, so why not just fully outfit himself in his own Wade gear? The red kicks aren’t a bad choice for anyone.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.
