The Funny, Stupid Thing of the Day

Steve Ballmer going crazy #hestheman #clippersfanfestival

A post shared by Jovan Buha (@jovanbuha) on

Who doesn’t love Clippers new owner Steve Ballmer? Any owner with this much energy just makes you want to cheer for his team. Ballmer should be excited after he dropped a cool $2 billion to own the Clippers.

Dunk of the Day

This may not be the most exciting dunk we’ve showcased here at Out of Bounds, but this one is special just because it’s Nuggets guard Nate Robinson finally getting to show his dunking skills are still there after overcoming last year’s ACL tear. Glad to see you back, Lil’ Nate!

Cheerleaders of the Day

The season never ends for NBA cheerleaders as these lovely Spurs Silver Dancers show support for the local baseball team.

Farewell Dick Bavetta!

Legendary referee Dick Bavetta is finally hanging up his sneakers after 39 seasons of officiating NBA games. That’s right, 39 years. We tip our hats to you, Dick. You will definitely be missed.

Dunk Contest of the Day

The Sprite Slam Dunk Showdown made it’s next stop in San Francisco and the local talent showed why you must respect the hoops down by the Bay.

Fail of the Day


Ugh, poor Ian Mahinmi. Not only does the Pacers and French center air ball a free throw, but he air balls two straight free throws! Good thing this wasn’t an NBA game and only YouTube could find this fail or Mahinmi may never hear the end of this.

Throwback Tuesday: Kobe Bryant


The video may be grainy, but you can already tell that Lakers guard Kobe Bryant was going to be one of the best all-time, even in high school. The high schoolers who had to get trashed by a young Kobe? You have our sympathies.

YouTube of the Day

We may not be seeing this on an NBA court in the near future, but Nike recently debuted the first complete LED court. Crazy what this could mean for the game going forward as the possibilities could be endless not only for fans, but basketball training and stats as well.

Stanley Johnson and Terrence Ross Highlights

Future Arizona forward Stanley Johnson and Raptors guard Terrence Ross recently took their talents to Seattle’s Pro-AM and wrecked anybody who challenged them. We can’t wait to see Johnson get to the NBA; the kid just finished up high school and looks like a man among boys on the floor.

Kicks of the Day

Got to love Blazers guard Damian Lillard repping his adidas Crazy Light Boosts in cool Team USA colors.

Swag of the Day

Thinking of my humble beginnings, where I am now. And where I want to be. " Sky is the limit"

I think we can all agree that we would switch lives with Rockets guard Patrick Beverley in a hot second.
