If I didn’t know any better I would have no idea that this jersey represented a Hawk

Keywords: jersey of the week, atlanta hawks, mint green, pistol pete


The mint green color scheme along with the blue doesn’t really make me think of a Hawk. Actually I have no idea how this color scheme of jersey even represents Atlanta. Now the jerseys I am talking about are the reverse of the one pictured. This smooth shot of Pistol Pete Maravich was too good to pass up though. The Hawks used one with a base of mint green with the blue stripes and the one pictures which has mint green stripes. It may not even actually be mint green, but saying mint green just makes it seem like an even odder concept. And once again, I still do not see what this has to with a Hawk.

The rookie of the year rocks a sick jersey

Keywords: kyrie irving, cavs, jersey of the week

The Cleveland Cavaliers have done their best to wipe out the time Lebron James spent playing for them. Two of the best things that changed after the James departure were the additions of Kyrie Irving and these new jerseys. Now the pictured jersey is the best of the moves, this being the Cavs alternate uniform. Blue, Yellow, Red, all the primary colors are well represented.

Team Tunisia player was actually wearing USA socks

Keywords: tunisia, olympics, kobe


Earlier I wrote about the player from Tunisia that asked Kobe to autograph his shoes after his team got beaten by 47 points. Apparently those shoes he got signed were the same exact ones that Kobe was wearing. Made specifically for team USA. Not only were his shoes the same as the Black Mamba, but so were his socks. Not the best job of costume designing by the Tunisian Olympic squad.

Kenny Atkinson will forgo another season with the Knicks to join the Hawks

Keywords: kenny atkinson, knicks


The Knicks have had an offseason full of questionable moves by owner James Dolan. Letting Kenny Atkinson go to the Atlanta Hawks may be the biggest blunder of them all. According to Jeremy Lin, it was Atkinson that helped him turn into the player that Knicks fans saw flourish. Could he have done something with to help these current Knicks develop? We will never know, but here is what Lin had to say about Atkinson back in February in an interview with the Daily News:



“I mean this guy wakes up at 6 a.m. every morning, I’ll text after a game at midnight, 1 o’clock when I go home and I’ll say, ‘Hey can I look at those turnovers. Can I look at the upcoming team? How they run pick and rolls?’ And he’ll have the film ready when I walk into the facility the next morning.”

Lebron makes his heroic return with Cleveland, I think…..

Keywords: lebron james, cleveland cavaliers


Man it is days like these where I love running this site. Im out and about and see something funny and I say to myself this will be perfect for the website. So with that I bring to you the return of Lebron James. Well actually it is just a really tall white guy that also has a receding hairline. The thing that pushed this over the edge for me was the fact that not only was he rocking the Lebron Cavs jersey, but he was also wearing the matching shorts. What a gem.

The biggest ovation the Raptors and Leafs have received all year came last night…..because of pizza

Keywords: toronto maple leafs, raptors, pizza, free, van gundy

Raptors fans have never really had much to be excited about. Yea Vince Carter was awesome for a little bit, but then he ditched them. So did Chris Bosh. As for the Maple Leafs, they are about to be the only team in the NHL that hasn’t made the playoffs since the lockout. So when fans have a chance for free pizza in Toronto, they go absolutely nuts, even if their team is getting blown out. Basically if the Raptors score 100 points they get a free pizza from the creatively named Pizza Pizza. The best part of the whole thing is Magic coaches Stan Van Gundy’s reaction.


“I mean, everybody’s on their feet, standing ovation and the whole thing and then a guy in the crowd next to me sitting baseline said everybody gets a free pizza, so I guess that was exciting,” Van Gundy said. “That was the loudest the crowd was all night. They were into that. That was a big basket by Ed Davis.

“They’re going to put that on the highlight film at the end of the year. I was like, ‘Wow, what happened, I thought they had like an 18-point play and tied the game or something.”


The picture is of former Raptor star Hedo Turkoglu. I googled Raptor eating pizza expecting to get an actual dinosaur eating a slice. But instead I just got a basketball player. Such is life.

The Brooklyn Nets are taking the next step to taking over New York

Keywords: brooklyn nets, hello brooklyn


The Nets have a few players they are preparing to feature next season. Taking a page out of the New York Yankees handbook, they are calling these players their “Core Four.” These four players are the newly acquired Joe Johnson, the top 3 point guard Deron Williams, the pesky defender Gerald Wallace, and the up-and-coming big man Brook Lopez. Hello, Brooklyn.



Advertisements will be placed all over the city with the Hello Brooklyn phrase followed by some information about one of the core four players. They are as follows:


“Hello Brooklyn. I’m #8, Deron Williams, three-time NBA All-Star and father of four.”


“Hello Brooklyn, I’m #7, Joe Johnson, six-time NBA All-Star and lifelong Razorback.”


“Hello Brooklyn, I’m #11, Brook Lopez, 20-point scorer and Batman’s biggest fan.”


“Hello Brooklyn, I’m #45, Gerald Wallace, All-NBA Defender and offseason fisherman.”



This is just the beginning of the Nets campaign to take over New York. Soon they will start up a digital social media campaign, so it shouldn’t be too much longer before we see the “Hello Brooklyn” phrase trending on twitter. Things are looking up for the Nets in New York, and they picked the perfect time to strike as fans’ patience with the Knicks is starting to wane.
