Hilarious Video of the Day


Have you ever stopped and considered what some of the biggest stars in the NBA might sound like performing top-20 songs ‘A cappella’? Oh yeah, you too?!?…welll, here you go!

Flashback Photos and Videos of the Day


Larry Legend with the no-look pass vs. DePaul back in the day.

Bird vs. Jordan in their ’86 showdown. Enjoy.

Bird’s competitive streak was reportedly one for the ages. There’s a rumor that he once circled the locker room during All-Star weekend and told his opponents he “wanted to see who might come in second place” when asked what he was doing? They simply don’t make them like Bird anymore.

Friday Phenoms of the Day

We take a look back at several NBA players you may recognize for today’s Flashback Phenom section.


Some of the highlights may be a bit grainy, but then again the footage is from 1995-96. A look back at a 16-year-old Kobe and his father Joe Bryant during his days at Lower Merion HS.

Shaq has been “The Diesel” for a LOOOONG time. High school Shaq was actually less fair than the NBA Hall of Fame version.

These clips are from just over a year ago, but you’ll definitely see a few guys from this year’s rookie class. As always, thanks Ball Is Life crew!
