Forget using a trampoline to up your dunking game like some half-time NBA mascot. Go find yourself a bridge over a lazy river like the Dunking Devils did, attach a swing and a hoop, and you’ll be pulling off dunks like the NBA All-Star game has never seen before.
Yesterday, The New York Times published a hilarious or apocalyptic (depending on how much you like basketball) account of NBA players’ attachment to their smartphones before and after a game—and sometimes during.
Kaboom! It’s no surprise that a basketball would explode if you pumped it with a ridiculous amount of air but it’s really cool to see it unravel in super slow motion. The ball basically disintegrates and you can see the limp leftovers tear apart from each other as the orange sphere separates from having too much air…
Finding a playground basketball hoop with the net still intact is rarer than spotting Bigfoot. But because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as the swish of a net after a perfect shot, someone has created a temporary one that can be easily installed on any regulation rim.
Since it’s already dirty, there’s really no reason not to just throw all your laundry on the floor, right? But if you’ve got a partner or roommate who says otherwise, Wham-O’s got a pretty sweet laundry bag with a basketball hoop attached so putting away dirty laundry is just like making free-throws.
Every team wants the perfect draft pick. It's a deceptively simple-sounding goal that haunts every executive in sports, because they are being asked to do the nearly impossible—predict what human beings will do. Sure, every few years a player like Andrew Luck or Bryce Harper comes along who simply can't fail (even…
Backyard Sports started as a series of video games where players could challenge kid-versions of pro athletes in less-than-professional venues. It disappeared for a while, but the brand has recently been reborn as a series of mobile games that now work alongside real-life sports equipment to reward players for the…
Fergie performed between quarters of the Clippers-Lakers game at Staples Center tonight. Clips owner Steve Ballmer, uh ... enjoyed it? I think that's what he's doing, here? Enjoying? That or just straight-up raging out. I can't really tell.
Basketball is famously an all-American sport (invented by a Canadian). But thanks to an odd twist of fate and the YMCA, the world's oldest surviving basketball court is actually in France. Tucked away in a neighborhood of Paris, the handsome facility has parquet floors and iron pillars running down the middle of it.…
What's the best way to promote the accuracy, adaptability, and reliability of your robotic arm to potential clients? Even if it's only ever destined to work on a factory floor, showing how it can wipe the floor with professional basketball players when it comes to nailing free throws is a pretty effective PR stunt.
If you're obsessed with college hoops, these miniature basketball court rugs from Milliken are the perfect final touch for decorating that one room in your home that's jam-packed with NCAA memorabilia—and you'll never need to mop up a single drop of sweat.
I'm not entirely sure at what point I stopped thinking this video was incredibly stupid and started thinking it was incredibly hilarious but I think it was probably after The Big Lebowski got a hold of the basektball. And once it hits space thanks to Shaolin Soccer and Anchorman, I pretty much couldn't stop giggling.
I know this picture looks like the Moon is passing perfectly between the Earth and the Sun. And I know it seems like the people in the picture are trying to look at the eclipse. But this picture taken by Reddit user MDPPatrick is not of a solar eclipse. It's just a perfectly timed snap of a basketball shot.
A great short shot by Fantavious Fritz in Brooklyn, New York, using 35mm film. Mixed with footage from the 2000 IMAX film Michael Jordan To The Max, it uses an edited version of Allen Iverson's famous practice rant as the soundtrack.
Steve Ballmer, who just bought the Los Angeles Clippers for $2 billion and is also that guy who screamed "DEVELOPERS! DEVELOPERS! DEVELOPERS!" at a conference one time, greeted Clippers fans at a fan festival today. He spent a good portion of his speech screaming like a crazy person, obviously.
Quitting your job, as with breaking up, should never be done over text message. Outgoing University of Missouri men's basketball coach Frank Haith could certainly use a reminder: Haith just delivered his two weeks notice in a text message, reports Fox 4 KC.
Sports and technology are usually thought of as estranged dance partners just a half measure out of sync, but there's an elegant waltz between the two that's been going on for years behind the scenes. And maybe nowhere more so than in the lead-up to March Madness.
The NBA recently announced that the players of all 30 teams—and the balls they use!—would have tracking devices installed to analyze player movements during games. Now, the first dribles of the fascinating data are available.
Nerf changed the way we all played indoor basketball without a proper court; replacing trash cans and balls of paper with plastic nets and foam balls. And now you can take your scaled-down game to near NBA-caliber levels with Eastpoint's new wireless hoops and scoreboard that keeps tab on time and points complete…
These days there's a new rumor or smartwatch announcement every time you fire up the internet. But they're all designed to work alongside a smartphone doing boring things like display caller IDs or rejecting a call. Not the Hoop Tracker. This is the first watch designed to keep track of your prowess at the rim so you…
