The Funny, Stupid Thing of the Day

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!

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.

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.

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

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

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.

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.
