I Love This Game
MUST WATCH: Linsanity Defined
A short documentary on #LINSANITY.
After the New York Knicks beat the Los Angeles Lakers in the fifth game of the current Jeremy Lin-fueled Knicks’ winning streak, I left Madison Square Garden to a response I had never seen before. I began wondering what it must have been like when the Knicks routinely sold out MSG and went deep into the Playoffs.
As Lin added to his lore in Minnesota, and then Toronto, it became clear this story, this Jeremy Lin Event, was one sports fans might want to keep.
Above all else, I wanted to remember the feeling.
Filmed on February 15, 2012, at the Sacramento Kings vs. New York Knicks game. Jeremy Lin finished with 10 points on 4-6 shooting, 5 rebounds and a career-high 13 assists, as the Knicks won 100-85.
I hope you enjoy.
[Rated R: For language, but c’mon, it’s New York]
Metta World Peace with the THROWDOWN.
Nothing peaceful about that. You had to like the rest of his game tonight too, with 14 points off the bench. He also added in 5 rebounds, a block and a steal.
MUST WATCH: Blake Griffin and Bill Simmons on celebrating dunks
This is another video I was lucky enough to help make with The Sports Guy and Mr. Griffin. This time, Blake breaks down the proper way to celebrate an alley-oop.
“This guy’s like ‘Whaaaaa?’” - Blake Griffin
“I was in tune with you. We were like E.T. and Elliot.” - Bill Simmons
MUST WATCH: New York Knicks 2011-2012 Season Promo
Whoa. NYK + Marvin Gaye. My blood runs purple and gold, but there is NO PLACE BETTER to watch an NBA game than Madison Square Garden. #NewYork
ONCE IN A LIFETIME: MAGIC JOHNSON
There will never, ever, ever be another Magic Johnson. Ever. Never. I mean, watch these highlights. Never ever, ever , ever. And the lack of Magic Johnsons has little to do with the fact that we’ll never see a man of his talents and skill sets, and far more to do with the fact that this style of basketball is dead. It’s been murdered.
I mean, this video almost barely registers as basketball. I hardly recognize it. It’s like watching some other sport. This game is gone. We haven’t seen it in 20+ years, and I doubt we ever see it again. I mean, nobody plays like this. Nobody. Name me one guy that plays basketball like this since Magic retired.
And look at the crowds. Even the crowds look different. They all look like they’ve been eating drugs for hours. They’re ecstatic. The games sound different. The fans are literally oohing and aahing. The announcers are laughing. Reminds me of those old VHS tapes the NBA used to sell. Every shot of the fans would show them standing, slack-jawed, completely incredulous. Now, when a telecast shows the crowd, it’s Beyonce lazily posting something on her facebook, using a touch screen smart phone. (Does Beyonce have a facebook? I’m sure she does. Maybe it’s under a pen name like Rita Baxter? Check it out and report back.)
Am I alone here? Alone, ranting like the homeless lunatic I passed on my way to work, who was shouting at his wet breakfast sandwich of Italian roll stuffed with newspaper?
When I was a kid, point guards who were out ahead of the fast break would actually slow down, let a someone catch up, then pass the ball backwards so a teammate could score. That wasn’t an oddity either. It was the norm. It happened in every game. When was that destroyed, and who is the destroyer? Was it you, Allen Iverson? Did you do it, Triangle Offense? I actually blame Michael Jordan, who was so good, everyone on the court held him up as the benchmark, then aspired to dominate games like he did.
Chalk this up as another reason why basketball, as a sport, is in horrible shape today. Call me the old man barking at kids for walking on the lawn. I don’t care. My lawn’s nice, and I like to keep it that way. So buzz off. You’re just pissed because your lawn sucks.
RAJON RONDO’S ZANY PASS
I mean, do passes get any zanier? This looks like it’s straight out of a circus. Pretty zany.
if only you could see my face right now.

MUST WATCH: Mayweather’s Cheap Shot
What you don’t see or hear in this video is legendary boxing trainer, and color analyst for HBO, Emmanuel Stewart. When Floyd landed the punches live, Stewart could only say, “Awww, c’mon!”
Make no mistake about it, Ortiz got too amped up, and made a critical error, but winning bouts like that, Floyd Mayweather, won’t make anyone forget that you keep ducking Manny Pacquiao.
mayweather is a little bitch haha
Pokemon! Party Rock Parody - LMFAO
JUSTIN BIEBER CROSSES UP STEVE NASH
You know Nash hasn’t guarded anyone in his 45 years in the league, but this is a new low. Biebs got ‘em, then went to the reverse, and his girlfriend’s cheering for him on the sidelines. You let Justin Bieber do you like that, and you gotta retire, Nash.
DISNEY FANS STOP WHAT YOU ARE DOING AND WATCH THIS. THE COLOURS, THE LIGHTS, AND THE SOUNDS OH MY GOD.
#reblogged in the first thirty seconds
I JUST CRYED SO HARD. OMG, MY ENTIRE CHILDOOD. MY ENTIRE IMAGINATION.
THIS GAVE ME ACTUAL CHILLS AND I AM CLOSE TO TEARS.
Oh my god…I can’t even handle this.
why did i cry?
My eyes are watery. Disney, you need to stop making the crap you have been making lately. And go back to this kind of stuff. Seriously.
I WILL NEVER NOT REBLOG THIS VIDEO. NEVER.
GOOSEBUMPS. and i cried like a baby
LEBRON vs. 16-YEAR OLD SPANISH KID
King James continued his NIKE tour by playing a lucky Spanish teenager in a game of knockout. It’s pretty competitive, as you can see from the video.
