The Funny, Stupid Thing of the Day
Ugh, no you didn’t Evan Turner… The Pacers forward managed to run out of gas while driving his Ferrari on the highway. Too embarrassing, Evan. We hope your girl was phoning your Mom to smack your head when she sees you for that one.
Dunks of the Day
Now THIS is a dunk contest! Take note NBA and just let these guys work All-Star Weekend. Famous dunkers Chris Staples, Porter Mayberry, Justin Darlington and Guy Dupuy all pulled off some amazing slams with their unreal leaping ability. However, Rafal Lipinski owned the House of Hoops Quai 54 Dunk Contest by jumping over somebody on a chair and throwing down the reverse slam. Did we mention he’s only 6’2′? Just get out of town with that craziness.
Fan of the Day
With the World Cup in full swing, Blazers guard Wesley Matthews is leaping full into the spirit to cheer on USA. Keep it up Wes, the USA will need all hands on deck as they take on Germany Thursday.
Throwback of the Night
We don’t see much of the “Twin Tower” concept in today’s NBA, but man did it work for the Rockets in the 90s with Hakeem “The Dream” Olajuwon and Ralph Sampson. Sampson may not have lived up to his No. 1 pick expectations, but along with Hakeem they helped deliver Houston back-to-back championships that still bring tears of joy to Houston fans’ eyes.
Instagram of the Day
There’s been some real sportsmanship shown between this year’s draft class even as they are trying to sell themselves ahead of each other to NBA teams. The results of Thursday night won’t stop them from being good to each other as Jabari Parker checks in on Joel Embiid with Oreos and Gatorade following his foot surgery.
YouTube of the Day
Dante Exum isn’t even in the NBA yet, but Foot Locker is jumping on him with a brand new ad campaign. This one is hilarious, as Exum is dealing with a culture barrier as an Australian, but keep an eye out for other funny promos that feature Exum going forward.
Swag of the Day
Does he stay or does he go? While everyone is wanting to know the answer from Carmelo Anthony, he and his lovely wife LaLa aren’t letting it effect them living the good life and keeping up appearances.
Meet Rashad Vaughn
Coming out of the basketball factory that is Findlay Prep, Rashad Vaughn decided to stay in Nevada and attend UNLV next year. The Running Rebels fans should be excited for the 6’5 shooting guard with his amazing finishing ability, fundamental footwork and of course, a sweet jump shot.
Kicks of the Day
These are “All Sauce” as Hawks guard Lou Williams likes to say. These clean red Jordan’s may put a hurt on some vision in the sun, but definitely nice on and off the court.
