Who on Earth is Richaun Holmes?

That’s the question I was asking myself when I saw the YouTube headline “Richaun Holmes Throws One Down in Brooklyn!”. Well, that among others like:-

  • Who does he play for?
  • Who played Brooklyn today?
  • How would I know? It’s only pre=season dammit!

But then I clicked the link and saw this little slice of Brooklyn Beatdown…

1994: Pippen Destroys Ewing, Knicks, Spike Lee

This dunk by Scottie Pippen from 1994 is still one of the greatest of all-time, in my opinion. It's not always shared but when it is, I'm the first one out of my seat. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=srl2Bwh6A3I In what was already an incredibly physical and borderline violent series, Pippen lays the smack down on Knicks big man Patrick Ewing. Not content with simply destroying the Knicks main man on the dunk, Pip even gives Spike Lee some advice on where he can sit. Great memories and a genuinely amazing moment in...

The NBA/Chris Bosh = BACK!

It's that time of the year again where we all get WAY too excited for absolutely anything that happens in the NBA pre-season. Well, this particular highlight is perhaps a little more worthy than most as Chris Bosh delivers the tasty between-the-legs dish to Dwyane Wade for the tough finish. https://twitter.com/MiamiHEAT/status/650811399921377280 Not only is it an awesome pass, it's just great to see Bosh back again, healthy and ready to lead the Miami Heat into another strong campaign.

Steph Curry Reads Negative Scouting Report

Things are always fun to look back on and mock when they're proven to be completely and utterly incorrect. Let's face it, no one goes back to confirm prophetic statements on outside chance draft picks one day becoming All Stars. In this case however it's no different with the old scouting report for one Mr Stephen Curry being resurrected in this commercial with none other than Steph himself reading his own retro review. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WLb8AwuZ7N8 Of course all of the comments made sound ridiculous now, Here's a little breakdown from...

Kawhi Leonard – Youthful Reminder

Much like most pre-seasons all we seem to hear about when it comes to the San Antonio Spurs is how old they are and how likely they might be to finally fade away this season. Well, in the spirit of bringing a Yin to the Internet's Yang, the NBA's YouTube channel released this little beauty, showcasing the past seasons work of Kawhi Leonard. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yE17DjGeLFE We can all consider ourselves thoroughly reminded that not all of the San Antonio Spurs roster is aging and (supposedly) seeking a farewell tour. The...
