Patty Millions – Circa 1990/91 NBA Hoops

Patty Mills is the next in line to receive the magical retro NBA trading card treatment from @Wince84. I'm not sure what the best part of this one is. Is it the old school Spurs colors? Or Patty burning Chris Paul? I cannot decide. https://twitter.com/wince84/status/644450576063791104 Another sensational addition to the "OMG Wince is Amazing" trading card family.

Russell Westbrook + Seagulls + EA Sports = Win

Let's face it, NBA Live has hurt the hoops community over the past few years, with our old pals EA Sports serving up hot turds to the general public on a regular basis. But good things come to those who wait and our NEW pals at EA Sports have produced an awesome NBA Live '16 commercial featuring one of my favorite players, Russell Westbrook. https://twitter.com/traread/status/644328343588876288/video/1 Props to our mate Tom Read from believethehypeNBA.com for sharing the video. Now let's hope EA Sports has made a commercial that is only matched in...

Houston Rockets – 33.3% Uniform Conversion

The Houston Rockets have released three new alternate uniforms for the upcoming 2015/16 season. In true Houston Rocket style however, they've completely and utterly screwed it up on two out of the three. The Rockets have basically been laughed at since 1996 when they changed from an all-time classic in this to the horrid and laughable this. Every uniform since then has sucked and generally kept them in the bottom 10% of league uniform power rankings. Here's today's new releases: [gallery link="file" ids="7732,7733,7734,7735,7736,7737" orderby="rand"] Matt Moore at Hardwood Paroxysm summed it...

Basketball Cards & The Wayback Machine

I don't know about you but in the 90's I collected an absolute mountain of NBA basketball cards. The same could be said for a LOT of Aussie NBA fans of that time and one of the most readily available sets was the now classic NBA Hoops variety. Wouldn't it be nice to step into the ol' time machine and bring these cards and the fun had with them back to life? Even better, wouldn't it be great to fuse the old school style with today's players?...

I don't know about you but in ...

Blake Griffin – Getting Emojinal

The NBA off-season can be really tough and no one knows "handling a tough off season with mild, organised comedy appearances" like Blake Griffin. Watch Blake as he plows a Mack truck through these Emoji do's and don't's. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zwNGCohFH54 Pretty simple rules to follow, when you think about it. Kinda surprised there was no basketball one at the end though. Follow @hoopdiary// ...

Hoopstagram #42 – The Hawk And I

Houston Rockets big man Dwight Howard is currently on vacation and his photos are amazing. Thanks to the power of the Internet and our good pals at Instagram, Howard has posted some beauties that are  definitely worthy of inclusion via Hoopstagram. https://instagram.com/p/6mk3CPqiyr/ There's a fantastic list of photos on Howard's Instagram feed but these two are definitely my favorites. https://instagram.com/p/6m29KUKi4M/ I'm generally no Dwight Howard fan but it is nice to see these guys relaxing during the off season, re-charging batteries and getting ready to put on another epic show...

Jordan Files #13 – “No Question”

Michael Jordan held a very entertaining Q & A session on Saturday Night in Santa Barbara at his 20th Annual Basketball Camp - Michael Jordan Flight School. MJ answered a heap of questions, ranging from athletes he'd like to sign to the Jumpman label, to addressing Shaquille O'Neal's recent "all-time Bulls vs. all-time Lakers" comments. Jordan was even asked what advice he'd currently give to Kobe Bryant, which created a fun little stir. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SRvNz2TdAPM   Jordan's best answer though came when he was asked if in his prime he could beat...
