Jordan Files #2 – Triple Dip

In a new series that should yield some entertaining results, we’ll be posting Michael Jordan highlights from YouTube. In this fast-faced world of NBA multimedia, it’s nice to keep MJ’s name front-of-mind. Today’s first edition is a little something I found (on the right sidebar as always) while looking for something completely unrelated to basketball. How could we not kick off…

Gortat Delivers The Foreign Facial

Well, it’s not the smoothest headline you’ll see but when the canvas paints itself, you just go with it. Washington Wizards big man Marcin Gortat flushed one home over Indiana Pacers center Ian Mahinmi in Wednesday night’s Game 2 contest and it was large! Watch the Wizards bench clear and listen to the fantastic commentary as the man affectionately known…

NBA Playoff Predictions – Conference Semis

Well, that was one of the most exciting first rounds in NBA playoff history. Only three of the eight first round match ups failed to go to the deciding seventh game and the competition between all teams was intense! With all the good that comes with that distinction however, it didn’t exactly pan out to well for everyone’s predictions. This time we’re…

Blake Griffin Seals The Clippers’ First Round Deal

Blake Griffin has made one hell of an improvement this season and this acrobatic exclamation point on the Warriors was a great example of such. In such a big moment, Griffin attacked the basket and instead of trying to posterize his opponent with a dunk, he made sure of the basket and practically sealed victory for his team. [embedvideo…

Thrillard Time In Rip City

Damian Lillard’s Game 7 game winner over the Houston Rockets is sort of old new now but I couldn’t help but post the video. After Chandler Parsons put his Rockets up with 0.9 seconds remaining in regulation, I (like everyone) figured we were going to see yet another upcoming Game 7. But it was not to be, thanks to Mr…

There Are Bench Celebrations And Then There’s Sheed

Another great compilation put together by the NBA on the best bench celebrations of season 2013-14. The highlight here quite clearly is Detroit Pistons Assistant Coach Rasheed Wallace. There are some great reactions within this clip but there is no rival to ‘Sheed’s courtside antics. Follow @hoopdiary//
