The Funny, Stupid Thing of the Day
— Brian Scalabrine (@Scalabrine) August 4, 2014
Everyone needs to check out this awesome parody article by former NBA player Brian Scalabrine explaining his decision to return home to Boston as a broadcaster while poking some fun at LeBron James’ decision to return to Cleveland. Glad to hear from the “White Mamba.”
Fails of the Day
— Darren Rovell (@darrenrovell) August 4, 2014
Ah, my man, we love your enthusiasm for your Cavaliers, but someone needs to teach you a thing or two about basketball history. We’re not even going to get into the quality of these tattoos or the fact that Kevin Love is still with the Timberwolves. How do you not know that the Cavs retired No. 42 in honor of Nate “The Great” Thurmond? This has to earn a disappointed “C’mon man!”
Just to not hate on the guy above too much, we can all chuckle at Thunder forward Mitch McGary for his go-to dunk if he was in a contest. The finish doesn’t come close to redeeming the failed somersault to start this off. Maybe you should just focus on boxing out and grabbing rebounds for the time being.
Dunks of the Day
Now here’s a guy that we can’t laugh at when it comes to dunking. Cavs forward Andrew Wiggins makes this look easy.
Even more impressive is the local talent in Sacramento putting on dunk fest as part of Sprite’s Slam Dunk Showdown. These guys may not be pros, but their dunks have us fooled.
Tweet of the Day
Everybody has shown class in wishing Pacers forward Paul George good luck in his recovery and who doesn’t know what he’s going through more than former Louisville guard Kevin Ware? George has to appreciate these kind words from someone who went through another sickening leg injury and knows the hard work it takes to get back.
YouTube of the Day
If you’re a married man, it’s hard not to smile at this cute “Save the Wedding Date” video by HEAT guard Dwyane Wade and his lovely fiance Gabrielle Union. Hats off to the lucky couple and we wish many years of happiness going forward.
Swag of the Day
Speaking of lovely ladies, Clippers guard J.J. Redick certainly has one. J.J. looks alright too.
Throwback of the Night: Rasheed Wallace
Love him or hate him, everybody had to respect Rasheed Wallace back in the day. This is a great clip of ‘Sheed spanning from his youngster days in high school to dropping back-breaking threes as a seasoned veteran. Wallace in his prime simply could not be stopped with his combination of athleticism, length and incredible shooting touch.
Next Man Up? Meet Jaylen Brown
6’7 guard out of Wheeler High School in Georgia, Jaylen Brown is currently making his name heard at adidas Nations and this mix is a good reason why. Brown stands out among the best his Class of 2015 has to offer with his supreme athleticism and shooting ability. Whichever college Jaylen will commit to is getting a sure-fire star the minute he steps on campus.
Kicks of the Day
Reebok is bringing the Shaq Attaq back and we can’t be more excited for these awesome retro kicks.

- Jordan Brand unveils 2023 NBA All-Star Game uniforms
