The Silly, Funny Picture of the Night

Nothing funny about the actual picture, as the Birthday Cap’ was looking as smooth as ever. The fun comes when you take a look at the H/T, as Kareem’s devastating move of choice was the Sky Hook…not the Dream Shake.

Fan of the Night

There’s just so much going on with this picture…tough to know where to even begin. Is he wearing Mickey Mouse gloves? Are those Charmin Angel’s wings on his back? The glow sticks, matching beard, and flaming tattoo sleeves put this guy right over the top.

Crossover of the Night

Iman Shumpert crossed Paul Pierce over so fierce “Yeet” had to make an appearance.

Gear of the Night

Looking smooth, Eddie Winslow Jr…we mean Zach Randolph. Kidding aside, why does it look as though he’s just about to fling the jacket open to show off the paisley-printed lining? Extra credit to those that can name both entertainment references we just made. (@jabaridavisnba)

You can joke about the “brow” before the game, just so long as you take him seriously while on the court. New Orleans may just be a force to be reckoned with in just a few short years as Anthony Davis continues to develop. Especially if Jrue Holiday can stay healthy and grow right alongside him.

Team Giveaway of the Night

Even though they didn’t make the playoffs, the Suns were easily one of the best stories of the season. They were great on the court, provided all types of awesome fan nights, and this latest event is precisely an example of why things seem to be turning around for the organization. They randomly selected 50 Suns employees to travel with the team for the final road trip of the season.

Cheerleaders of the Night

We're at Wild Wing Cafe at the Epicentre for the #CHAvsCHI pregame party! Come join us!

The Lady Cats want to welcome fans of the Bobcats to their official pregame party. We just wanted to tell each of you, “You’re welcome.”

There’s no telling where this league is, but we had to admit that move was pretty nice.

Dunk of the Night

In today’s episode of “Just Don’t Jump”…this dunk was vicious. Thanks, ‘Ball Is Life’ crew.

Legend of the Night

Happy Birthday to the #NBA's all-time leading scorer!

Nice of the NBA to break down Abdul-Jabbar’s career accomplishments like that. When you have them laid out in front of you, they offer validity to the notion of him being in contention for the “Greatest of All Time” argument.
