By | 11 Comments

The sports world is abuzz with the news that a Magic-Johnson fronted group broke the dang old bank in order to purchase the Dodgers for over $2 billion, which is a figure so absurd that it may as well be written like a comic strip character says cuss words.

Mini-Doc: NY Times Examines “The Crossover”

By | 16 Comments

<a href="http://video.nytimes.com/video/2011/05/25/sports/basketball/100000000831937/the-crossover-on-display.html?ref=sports"> The crossover dribble is a thing of beauty. Like lightning, it appears out of nowhere, an instant of speed, of skill, of athleticism. A good one will give a player an open lane to the rim, send a defender sprawling and cause a crowd to explode. A great one will become indelibly etched in time, reminisced about until it becomes the stuff of legend. Allen Iverson versus Michael Jordan or Iverson versus Tyronn Lue, for example. People don’t talk about the spin move or the hop step like they do the crossover. The move stands in a class of its own. To celebrate the crossover, the <a href="http://video.nytimes.com/video/2011/05/25/sports/basketball/100000000831937/the-crossover-on-display.html?ref=sports">New York Times</a> put together a video all about the move and some of its most notable masters.

On Vince Carter, Allen Iverson And The 2001 NBA Playoffs

By | 21 Comments

<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2011/04/on-the-nba-playoffs-and-its-glamour-teams"> So far, the 2011 NBA Playoffs have been a gargantuan sized melting pot of WTF. First, the Grizzlies fooled everyone into thinking they were an eight seed and then knocked off the top ranked San Antonio (Geritol) Spurs. Secondly, Chris Paul had New Orleans momentarily ready to shock the world. He was later seen courtside at a Heat game sporting a Yankees fitted causing Knicks fans nationwide to gush with premature joy. Third, the Boston Celtics and Los Angeles Lakers find themselves looking disaster in the pupils because of their current 0-2 series disadvantages. And on top of all that, bin Laden <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2011/05/osama-bin-laden-is-dead-obama-says">kicked the bucket</a>.
