Video: Ryan Anderson stars in new weirdest NBA videobomb

, on October 29, 2014 , 11:30AM

 

Just a quick rundown of all the weird stuff happening in this Ryan Anderson videobomb from last night:

 

– Is videobombed twice, actually — once by a jumping, stuffed pelican and also by some random dude assuring us, “This guy knows what he’s doing. He knows what he’s doing.”

 

–Ryan Anderson is so tall that Pierre the Pelican is forced to jump as high as he can, just to be able to see his giant head. This is what happens when the guy getting videobombed is the tallest person in frame. There are some kinks to work out here.

 

– For whatever reason, Fox Sports decided the best way show off Pierre’s hops was by chopping and screwing the interview and keeping the audio turned up. Half-speed Ryan Anderson is the new Drunk Goldblum.

 

This screencap, which makes it tough to sleep at night.

 

We’re one night in to the season, and things are already getting weird. Something tells me this is going to be a good year.

 

 


Video: 12-year-old with mad game calls out Chandler Parsons

It’s hard to say if this 12-year-old kid is going to be an NBA player someday, but considering he’s “already better” than Chandler Parsons, I wouldn’t be surprised. I mean, he’s got the fadeaway, the free throw, the Manu Ginobili behind the back, the immaculate staredown face:

 

trash talk face kid

 

So basically, he has it all, Monta Ellis style. Seven years from now, Chandler Parsons better watch out.


Video: Ravens and Browns trade LeBron celebrations in Cleveland

Want further proof that Cleveland has inexplicably become the nexus of American sports? Then let me offer two franchises, both of whom have been based in Cleveland at some point, using prodigal son LeBron James’ two most notable celebrations against each other during a football game in Cleveland, where a certain Jonathan Football, who is signed to James’ marketing agency, was watching from the sidelines.

 

 

Sure, the Browns lost, but those two clips should serve as quality evidence that Cleveland is back. But if not, then maybe we can hire Drew Carey to write a song for the Presidents of the United States of America to play during the Black Keys’ induction in to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. If that doesn’t do the trick, I’m out of suggestions.

Yes, Alexey Shved, you can throw that cake in Tas’ face. Go nuts.

 

Enjoy it!

Dag. Really going to miss Shaq. He had a great run — basketball, movies, TV, rap music, soda pops, clothing, websites, other websites. Not sure how we’ll ever replace someone like him, but he’s in a better place now.

 

Maybe…


Video: The Hornets’ new court is appropriately honeycombed

, on June 26, 2014 , 10:45AM

 

Just like anyone else born between 1980 and 1990, I’m a little bit invested in seeing how this new iteration of the Charlotte Hornets turns out. And after the jerseys that were almost perfect — the whites are great, but the teal and purple should have white around the digits, but otherwise AG — getting a chance to peep their court was the next big thing to see. After all, outside of the colors, pinstripes, Muggsy Bogues, Grandmama, Rex Chapman’s spandex and Kelly Tripucka’s mouth, the honeycomb lane is one of the defining looks of the first version of the Hornets.

 

And now that they’ve unveiled the court, I think we can all agree this is a solid upgrade. Just like the jerseys, it’s not a simple remake, but rather, the designers took the essence of the old franchise and reinvented it to make it more modern day. Which is good, since the 90s aren’t as cool as you remember. Personally, I think it looks magnificent, and I love that the honeycombs made a reappearance, albeit in an updated way.

 

As far as I’m concerned, two stingers up. Let’s hear what you think in the comments.


Video: Michael Jordan loves your beautiful hair

If you’ve ever seen Scottie Pippen’s legendary Mr. Submarine commercial, then you know that late-80s/mid-90s Bulls commercials were equally plentiful and bewildering. This one, for Gentle Treatment from 1986, is no different. I mean, it’s basically just Michael Jordan creeping on a reporter for having beautiful hair, and when I say “basically,” I mean that is what it is entirely.

 

Which is to say, two thumbs up.

Video: R. Kelly pitches Carmelo Anthony on Chicago with a song

Click forward to about the 6:40 mark of this interview with R. Kelly to hear the most beautiful free agency pitch since the Magic bought Dwight Howard all his favorite candies. If this doesn’t convince Carmelo Anthony to sign with the Bulls, then nothing will.

Video: Rapping grandpa wants LeBron to come back to Cleveland

, on May 28, 2014 , 12:35PM

 

I know it might be a bit early, but I’m willing to call this sick jam the song of the summer. I mean, what about this doesn’t scream modern day “Hot in Herre?”

 

Oh, everything? Right on. Back to “Rollin’ Thunder,” I guess.

Video: ‘Rollin’ Thunder,’ your new favorite OKC rap song

, on May 22, 2014 , 11:13AM

 

Just when you thought Oklahoma City was in trouble, but then The Iyengars drop a hot single like this and totally change the series. This is the kind of anthem that can galvanize a team, fan base and city, and the team needs to play this on the Jumbotron during Game 3. Guaranteed victory.
