Blake Griffin is the Y2K Mailman

Blake Griffin has been on fire lately, scorching the NBA with an array of dunks, rebounds, assists and more surprisingly, mid-range jumpers. Griffin has been putting up Karl Malone like numbers and paid reflex homage to "the Mailman" against the Phoenix Suns with this breakaway dunk. [embedvideo id="eT48oCHlCsU" website="youtube"] Suns head coach Jeff Hornacek would have had a distinct case of déjà vu as he watched the play unfold. Hornacek played with Malone for over five seasons and would of seen and heard all about these types of two...

Dante Exum – Photo Bomber

The US basketball media are starting to really focus their collective attention on Australia's Dante Exum. With the 2014 NBA Draft only a few months away, we're going to see more and more images of Exum on pages like ESPN.com and NBA.com. Hopefully, these images will demonstrate Exum's sensational basketball abilities, and not his stellar promotional work for Australian Football League teams like the Essendon Bombers. While us Aussies aren't generally the type to "rage up" at such errors, we are looking forward to seeing Dante in an...

Kobe Bryant – Ivory Mamba

You might be wondering what Kobe Bryant has been up to while rehabilitating most of his lower body this season. While his Los Angeles Lakers are arguably enduring their strangest tanking/fake re-building period of their recent history, the Black Mamba has been busy producing works of art. Whether it's the piano, the shoe or Lionel Ritchie's tears shedding additional tears, this new commercial from Footlocker will clear up any ponderings about Bryant's activities. Introducing, the seemingly ivory-focused Kobe Bryant. [embedvideo id="vzXfnHXm8aY" website="youtube"] You're welcome. ps. I need these shoes in every...

LeBron James – 61

LeBron James took to the Charlotte Bobcats on Monday night, scoring a career-high 61 points and setting a new Miami Heat franchise scoring record in the process. James connected on a lazy 22/33 from the field and 8/10 from down town. Whatever, it was only the Bobcats, right? Well, the Charlotte Bobcats are the 7th ranked defense in the NBA. Let that marinate.

Hoopstagram #19 – Dark Knight Rises

Chris Bosh of the Miami Heat is known for not taking himself too seriously and this Hoopstagram entry is a perfect example. Posing with LeBron James' protective face mask, Bosh proclaimed that the Dark Knight had indeed been doing some rising. Classic Bosh for the photo, classic Heat for the 20+ point victory over the hapless New York Knicks. Follow @hoopdiary// ...

Block of the Year in Portland?

This sensational piece of defense by Portland's Thomas Robinson will likely haunt the dreams of Minnesota forward Corey Brewer for a little while yet. As for us? Well, we'll just watch it over and over and over again. Thanks Mr Robinson. [embedvideo id="JhdYpW2ocso" website="youtube"] Follow @hoopdiary// ...

Dirk Nowitzki Nut-Punches the Knicks

The New York Knicks remain 15 games under .500 and the Dallas Mavericks still feature the clutch shooting of Dirk Nowitzki. These were the key learnings out of Monday night's Mavs vs. Knicks match up at Madison Square Garden. After storming back from 8 points down late in the game behind Tyson Chandler and Carmelo Anthony, the Knicks proceeded to absolutely murder their final possession. With the last shot opportunity in hand, Dirk did what Dirk does best and sent the Knicks home with yet another loss. [embedvideo...

Ricky Rubio – Sweet Dime, Bro

The lovefest for Ricky Rubio really hasn't got back to the same heights as it was before he injured his knee. This little piece of basketball fun however is the Ricky we all know and fell in love with back a couple of years. A great fake and a sweet dish to Ronny Turiaf for the powerful jam. [embedvideo id="wA3fnqRWN3o" website="youtube"] Not quite Magic Johnson-esque but sweet all the same. Here's how Earvin took care of Latrell Sprewell back in the day...

LeBron James – Dagger Dance

LeBron James showed the basketball world that he can in fact hit game winning shots when the Heat need it the most. This cold-blooded triple (practically) on the buzzer is even nicer than it looks, considering it was over excellent perimeter defender Andre Iguodala. Game, set, match.
