Hilarious Clip of the Night

There really is no going back after he danced on you, and your teammates laughed harder than the folks in the stands.

It’s difficult to determine why this guys jumped…but needless to say, he did it for the vine.

25 years ago today (5/7/89)….. #TheSHOT

A post shared by NBA (@nba) on

Tonight marks the 25-year anniversary of Jordan’s shot over Craig Ehlo at the free throw line. Notice how MJ isn’t fazed by them going up with three seconds left. Ice water doesn’t even begin to describe the fluid that pumped through Jordan’s veins.

This also happens to be the 20-year anniversary of the 8th-seeded Nuggets coming back from an 0-2 deficit while knocking the top-seeded Seattle SuperSonics as well.

Photos of the Night

Speaking of the Sonics, apparently there’s a station up in Seattle that still refuses to refer to the Thunder as anything other than this.

Kudos to Carlos Boozer for bringing some attention to a situation that absolutely should be on the conscience of anyone that cares for the well-being of others. 276 kidnapped schoolgirls being held captive  is definitely a worthy cause.

NBA Cares Moments of the Night

@wushock23 and @jeremytyler4 pay a visit to some #Knicks fans undergoing treatment at Burke Rehabilitation Hospital.

Good to see members of the Knicks and Cavs still reaching out to the community and interacting with the fans. Especially ones battling some pretty tough situations.

Turkish Airlines partnered up with EuroLeague stars to make this awesome trick-shot happen. They had us at jet-pack.

Prep Baller of the Night

D’Jery Baptiste is a 7′, 250-pound high school player out of Prestonwood Christian Academy in Texas. Skills are raw, but this young man is an absolute physical specimen. We can only hope the right college coach can get his hands on Baptiste.
