An usher vs a kid. Yep, an usher at an NBA game, who goes by the apropos Twitter handle of @TheDancingUsher, challenges the kid to a dance-off. Now, I may be a few days late to this, but I wanted to share because it’s a good one.
It happened in Detroit at a Pistons basketball game during a timeout. You know how they have those “Dance Cams” where they play music and then have the camera find people in the stands, project them on the big screen hoping they will dance and amuse the crowd.
Well, at about :25 seconds into it, the camera captures a kid with some moves. Moves good enough that an usher at the game challenges those moves with a few of his own. The camera cuts back and forth between the two as the crowd gets into it.
What’s even better as you can see below is the two got to meet after the game.
Just saw this in a highlight package…it happened right after Miami beat Phoenix 107-92 tonight. In fact, James was surprised by Wade’s gymnastics or spastic gymnastic display, that he couldn’t continue the interview. He was laughing so hard because Wade not only cartwheeled behind him in one direction, but he immediately gathered himself and cartwheeled across the screen again in the opposite direction.
“Yo, we’re going to a whole ‘nother stratosphere tonight with that one,” King James said while trying to contain his laughter. James even Tweeted the following, “Yo did @DwyaneWade really do cartwheels during my interview tonight. Video bombing took a whole new jump tonight. Hahahahaha! #Classic
Now, the Miami Heat photo bombing and video bombing has been going on for some time. First off, it shows how much fun the players are having with each other. Clearly, they understand the YOLO mantra.
The picture below is Lebron bombing Wade.
There is also plenty of evidence of Lebron video bombing his teammates. The video below is @KingJames doing the ‘frontal bomb’.
I don’t know about you, but I like it, cartwheels and all. Tweet/Like/Send.
This is a great compilation from many different angles of Xavier Henry’s massive dunk over Jeff “Not So With It” Withey of the Pelicans. Funny thing is, I bet Withey has seen this before. That’ because both were teammates at Kansas.
Somewhere Tom Chambers is smiling. For those of you who are saying, Tom Chambers Who??
Here’s some old school posterizing for ya’… I can tell ya’ current Golden State Warriors coach Mark Jackson isn’t saying Tom Who? One of the most devastating dunks in NBA history. Enjoy.
This rivals anything I’ve seen on @NBAonTNT from @BlakeGriffin32 fed by @CP3 and it appears to be legit.
It was released by the College of Central Florida in Ocala, Florida, so I would assume it’s real. Unless they have some sort of secret special fx lab we don’t know about!
The player is Javonte Douglas. I had to look at it several times. He seems to go up…and then up some more…thanks to his teammates jumping. Whatever the case, it’s pretty damn awesome. Watch the tape and judge for yourself. I’m always a lil’ suh-spish.
Without question one of thee best ever articles on Michael Jordan. This is thanks to OTL. Wright Jordan had intimate access to Michael’s world — friends, work and even his home.
I used Unquenchable Fire in the post because of the article, for sure, but also for the few times I saw him play and the one time I was able, by pure luck, to stumble upon a Bulls practice in the Seattle’s Kingdome. I was only able to watch 20-minutes before I was discovered and kicked out. But the intensity of that Bulls practice was more than most NBA games (save for playoffs) I’ve witnessed and I’ve seen probably 250 in person.
The Bulls practices in the Jordan era are legendary. Jordan was as ruthless and as brutal as I’ve ever seen a player. And I was only there for 20-minutes. He reprimanded players. If the screens weren’t set well he would blow thru them with incredible force. It was something to see. It was to see perfection demanded.
Anyway, enough of me chatting, read this article. Even if you are not a basketball fan, it shows incredible insight into the blinding bright light and overwhelming darkness of insane greatness. In those rare humans, there is no switch to turn on and off. It’s an unending and relentless genetic current.

OTL: Michael Jordan Has Not Left The Building – ESPN.
I have to say, while somewhat juvenile, it is a good smack down. However, he set himself up for the girl to slay him with a great comeback.
Could you imagine having this access to Larry Bird, Magic Johnson and Dr. J back in the day?
If Darryl “Chocolate Thunder” Dawkins was on Twitter???!!!
Woulda been fun…. enjoy Howard’s response below.

I have to admit right off the bat, I’m becoming obsessed with the after market AND the black market basketball shoe world.
The shoes pictured above, from top to bottom, go for $12,000, $4,500 and $2,500 respectively, +/- whatever the market will bear. The Nike Air Mag is the $12k bad boy. Worn by Michael J. Fox in “Back To The Future” and apparently one of only 20 pairs Nike ever produced.
So, this got me thinkin’: If I wanted them, how would I know if they’re real and not fakes? Turns out, I wouldn’t have much of a clue. It’s not my world. I would get suckered in an instant. Especially in the old days…you know, before Google n’ YouTube.
Now, if I want to purchase Nike Lebron 9 Elites, I just Google real vs. fakes and JStar’s excellent video below pops up. Instantly, I realize I now know what I don’t know — and it’s immense. Take a quick peek and you’ll see.
Anyway, I’m ready to investigate more….because I smell a billion-dollar aftermarket…
This is brilliant and very funny from Jimmy Kimmel. Kudos to the celebs for not listening to their publicists and taking these mean tweets head on!
The NBA edition is especially funny. Blake Griffin’s response when Chris Paul reads a mean tweet is priceless. I like Shaq’s and the one about Kobe dunkin’, read by Kobe is good.
This beats Jaywalking all to hell.
Enjoy and share this blog.
I often hear from people my age… parents as it were…that the kids of today lack character, drive, responsibility, etc…
Well, I think that is precisely what parents said about my generation and their parents about them.
And by the way, I know there has been a lot of negative press about sports lately, but sports is a great teacher of life. It teaches us to work with others, work together, work hard and, even if one does work hard, you could still lose. Builds character.
Speaking of character…
