Larry Bird Complains After Artist’s Mural Makes Him Seem Too Interesting

Larry Bird Complains After Artist’s Mural Makes Him Seem Too Interesting

Artist Jules Muck recently painted a mural of Larry Bird in the Fountain Square section of Indianapolis, which features the image of Bird in his Indiana State jersey doing the “Shh!” gesture, similar to the Nov. 28, 1977 cover of Sports Illustrated. This time, though, Bird is doing the shushing instead of the Indiana State cheerleaders. Oh, and he’s covered in tattoos.

Here’s the ink on Tatted...

In Huge Bummer, Jeremy Lin Says He's Hit "Rock Bottom" In Free Agency

In Huge Bummer, Jeremy Lin Says He's Hit "Rock Bottom" In Free Agency

The NBA is more fun with Jeremy Lin in it. And on a more practical level, he can still be a useful rotation player. Before a midseason move to Toronto that got him a ring but reduced his usage to garbage time, he averaged 10.7 points and 3.5 assists in 19.7 minutes per game as a backup/mentor to Trae Young in Atlanta.

You’d think some team would find a use for a player like that, but Lin...

Hair-Pulling Considered Rude In Every Sport But Football

Hair-Pulling Considered Rude In Every Sport But Football

In the midst of play a few weeks ago, WNBA player Liz Cambage’s arm got all wrapped up in her opponent Kalani Brown’s hair. At first the tangle seemed to be an accident, but soon there was pushing and shoving and intentional hair-pulling, and Cambage walked away from the encounter with a flagrant foul.

Anyone who has ever had long hair (or a very determined younger sister) knows that...

Carmelo Anthony Sounds So Sad After The Knicks' Latest Collapse

Carmelo Anthony Sounds So Sad After The Knicks' Latest Collapse

The Knicks have had a rather tempestuous last month. They fired Derek Fisher , got into just the dumbest heckling controversy , and had to hold a press conference denying that Kurt Rambis was, in fact, horny online. On top of all that, they’ve lost 16 of 19. Kristaps Porzingis’ continued delightfulness is about all they have going for them.

Last night, they blew a perfect opportunity to...

San Antonio Spurs Owner Steps Down, Wife Named Chairman And CEO

San Antonio Spurs Owner Steps Down, Wife Named Chairman And CEO

The San Antonio Spurs announced tonight that Peter Holt has retired as chairman and CEO of Spurs Sports & Entertainment—the company that owns the Spurs and a number of other San Antonio-area sports teams—which Holt has led since 1996. He will be replaced by his wife, Julianna Hawn Holt, who will also take his seat on the NBA’s Board of Governors.

Under Peter Holt, the Spurs became the best run...

Some Top Notch Free Throw Distractors Worked The Rockets Game Tonight

Some Top Notch Free Throw Distractors Worked The Rockets Game Tonight

I don’t know what to say about all these women attempting to distract Pelicans free throw shooters in Houston tonight, except that they’re certainly committed to their craft. I mean, for the above screenshotted gag, they got two children(?) to play Thing 1 and Thing 2 to accompany their sexy Cat in the Hat routine. That’s really taking it to the next level.

And the presence of a completely...

The Spurs' Ball Movement Is Gorgeous 

The Spurs' Ball Movement Is Gorgeous 

It is 2015 and the San Antonio Spurs, by the grace of God, look like a more polished version of the 2007 San Antonio Spurs. Sure, their 24-5 record is mostly the product of a defense that is 5.6 points per 100 possessions better than the next-best defense, but their offense is still humming along beautifully as well. This ball movement right here is overkill ... and then the Spurs pass it...

We Need To Talk About Russell Westbrook

We Need To Talk About Russell Westbrook

We’re officially in the slowest part of the sports calendar: There is no real basketball on (get out of here, we’re not counting Summer League ), soccer just wrapped up its summer tournaments, baseball is in the dead zone between the All-Star Game and September, and so on. But the streets demand the Deadcast in all its sticky, sweaty glory, and so we march on once again, ready to scream into...

Whatever Happens, Anderson Varejão Is Going To Be A Dude With A Championship Ring

Whatever Happens, Anderson Varejão Is Going To Be A Dude With A Championship Ring

The Warriors are a ruthlessly efficient team run by a fiery, undersized center who will take out his anger on your dick and balls and a teeny-tiny point guard who carries himself with a non-insistent swagger, and they’re owned by a techno-libertarian pug who named his dogs after Ayn Rand characters. They play fun, hyperspeed basketball, but there’s an air of inevitability about them that’s...

Warriors Top Grizz, 119 To—Wait, I'm Pretty Sure This Is A Video Game Score

Warriors Top Grizz, 119 To—Wait, I'm Pretty Sure This Is A Video Game Score

There’s been a terrible mistake. The AP, ESPN, even the NBA itself—they’re all recording the final score of last night’s Warriors-Grizzlies game as a 119-69 win for the Warriors, but clearly that is the score of some kid’s video game. I mean, ha ha, 119-69, get the fuck outta here, who would even believe that shit.

For chrissakes, didn’t anybody watch the broadcast? Clearly hackers had...

Draymond Green Gets It

Draymond Green Gets It

Draymond Green and the Warriors lost by -3 in Philadelphia to those guys who are always hogging the court down at your local Y. The Warriors clinched the narrow loss with a Harrison Barnes three, from a great pass out of the middle from Green. However, they really shouldn’t have let it get that close. Golden State blew a 24-point lead, turned the ball over 23 times, and only got to the line...

Commissioner For A Day: Gregg Popovich Should Be Wearing A Jersey

Commissioner For A Day: Gregg Popovich Should Be Wearing A Jersey

A great honor has been bestowed upon me: I am now the NBA Commissioner (for a day). With this great power comes great responsibility, and I have decided to use it to change something that has been wrong with the association since its inception: NBA coaches don’t wear uniforms.

As discussed by my colleague Barry Petchesky, who wholeheartedly agrees with me in this as in all things, I’ve always...

Guess Which Former Knick's Travel Alias Was "Ace Boogie"

Guess Which Former Knick's Travel Alias Was "Ace Boogie"

A tipster passed along this list of travel aliases for Knicks players that was used during the 2012-13 season. When asked to confirm or deny its authenticity, a Knicks spokesperson wrote "I can't confirm it for you."

When we've seen hotel lists in the past , they only included the fake names. Some of the fun is lost without getting to guess who the hell "Tommy Bunz" is, but it will probably...

This Steph Curry Shot Was Ridiculous, Even For Him

This Steph Curry Shot Was Ridiculous, Even For Him

The Warriors went down to Dallas and won a wildly entertaining shootout against the Mavs 130-112. Steph Curry finished a rebound shy of a triple-double and yawned his way to a dominant performance. The Mavs kept it close into the fourth quarter, but he and Klay Thompson (who had 10 threes! 10!) just shot them out of it.

Curry only hit six, but this one, over the outstretched hand of Dirk...
