Want to know the biggest myth in sports.
I’m not much of a dancer, not since that time that a preacher banned dancing in my town and my family moved away right before a rebellious teenager arrived and showed everyone that dancing is actually fun.
Last week we featured a video of the <a href="http://withleather.uproxx.com/2012/12/houston-rockets-dreidel-video" target="_blank">Dallas Mavericks murmuring their way through 'Sleigh Ride,'</a> and if you thought that'd be the end of their wacky Christmas updates, you are underestimating a 12-13 team with nothing better to do.
For my money, there’s no greater MS Paint artist in this generation or any other, for that matter (suck it, Picasso), than <a href="https://twitter.com/DangerGuerrero">our own Danger Guerrero</a>.
God bless <a href="http://www.grantland.com/blog/the-triangle/post/_/id/37817/story-time-with-jalen-rose-the-vince-carter-body-slam">Grantland</a> for giving Jalen Rose the opportunity to share the inside scoop on how things got physical between one-time fan favorite turned hated Toronto Raptor Vince Carter and his then coach Sam Mitchell.
People send and Tweet a lot of links to me each week and the results range from tame and general to bizarre and borderline terrifying, but every now and then somebody shows me something that just makes me giggle with delight, and that’s good for everyone.
Alongside the <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2012/06/nike-air-more-uptempo-x-air-force-180-dream-team">"Dream Team" 180s</a> and <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2012/06/nike-air-more-uptempo-x-air-force-180-dream-team">Air More Uptempos</a>, Nike's got other tricks up their sleeve to celebrate the upcoming London Olympics.
The two Vince Carter videos you're about to watch, when viewed in succession, can illustrate one of two themes: 1.
There have been very few surprises in the NBA through the first 7 games of the season.
<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>.
<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/03/gilbert-arenas-avoids-jail-time-in-sentence"> The <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/tag/orlando-magic">Orlando Magic</a> were in the unfavorable situation of suffering a losing streak while two of their main rivals in Boston & Miami are in the midst of ripping off double digit win streaks of their own.
<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/05/celtics-tony-allen-dunks-on-antawn-jamison"> Welcome Boston, we've been waiting on you. As your reward for knocking off the top seed, you've been tasked with taking on a well rested Orlando team that's gone through the playoffs so far looking like gangbusters. Your mission, if you choose to accept it, is to hand the Magic their first playoff loss. Four times. With the <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/05/celtics-tony-allen-dunks-on-antawn-jamison">King's coronation put off for another year</a>, we the fans, are in for a treat with the past two Eastern Conference Finals representatives vying for another trip back for the ultimate prize.
This is Vince Carter from the Toronto Raptors New Jersey Nets Orlando Magic, and he is pretty good at basketball.
Pundits will tell you <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/tag/vince-carter">Mr. Carter's</a> athletic ability has been on the decline for years.
