The Funny, Stupid Thing of the Day
Just because you’re seven feet tall and athletic, it doesn’t mean the talent will transfer to other sports. Case in point, Bulls center Joakim Noah bouncing in the first pitch of a recent White Sox game. Not to be embarrassed, Joakim tries again and actually tosses in a strike right down the middle. Way to show you have the skills, Joakim!

Wow, we all think the NBA has some of the best athletes, but this high-jumper shows what real athleticism is all about. Even Suns forward Gerald Green is jealous of this man’s hops.
Instagram of the Day
We’ll let Kings and Team USA center DaMarcus Cousins show you how great the team competed in the World Cup. With hardly any competition, Team USA predictably coasted to gold.
Vine of the Day
If you look closely, Bulls guard Derrick Rose is literally the only player not dancing while enjoying the gold medal. D-Rose only wants to ball and tear your heart out on the court. He’ll let Rockets guard James Harden handle the fun stuff.
Dunks of the Day
Nuggets forward Kenneth Faried has been wrecking everybody in the World Cup with his vicious slams this summer, this one coming courtesy of a sweet touch pass by Rose.
Lakers forward Nick Young decided to remind his IG followers that he has some incredible hops to go along with his potent shooting ability. This video shows Nick in high school taking off from the free throw line with ease for the slam.
The Sprite Slam Dunk Showdown tour made their way to Detroit to allow local talent to show their athleticism. Mo-Town didn’t disappoint and showed why nobody should be doubting the passion and talent Detroit has to offer.
YouTube of the Day
2K Sports is doing a good job making us wish it was October 7th already. This new NBA 2K15 trailer features the “MyTeam Mode” which allows you to put stars of the past on the same team. We know all you can spend hours having fun with this idea.
Cheerleaders of the Day
The Knicks cheerleaders are already having fun and looking great before the season is even close to kicking off.
Kicks of the Day
Anybody rocking the new KD 7’s (in any of the amazing color schemes) should be feeling pretty lucky right now.
Swag of the Day
For all of Kings center DeMarcus Cousins’ shenanigans and tomfoolery, it’s important to point out that the man can be very swagged out and classy if he wants to.
