Look to the person to your left. Now look to the person to your right. There' a good chance Shawn Kemp fathered one of them. Keep this in mind as you watch this vintage Reign Man dunk mix, because the punishment that Kemp once doled out on the rim was nowhere near as punishing as the child support payments he faces today.
Karl Malone is a big dude, so Karl Malone needs a big meal! But don't take our word for it. Take it from Karl Malone, who stars as "Karl Malone, Basketball All-Star" in this old commercial for Hardee'. Because when Karl Malone says Karl Malone needs a big piece of fried chicken, Karl Malone ain't joking around.
Golden State Warriors
This very funny bit from The Chris Rock Show imagines a late-night Arsenio-style talk show hosted by Golden State' favorite flat-topped white dude, Chris Mullin. (In the show, Mullin' sidekick is Danny Bonaduce, his first guest is "from Moesha, the guy who plays the father!" and he plays one-on-one against a gorilla.) Already, this is our favorite new show of the fall TV season.
Los Angeles Clippers
Your first reaction upon hearing "Hip to Clip" is "Ah, it' a parody of '2 Legit 2 Quit' so this Clippers song must be, what, 15-years old?" But then you quickly realize that Kevin Sage and the Buddy Group are rapping about this current Clippers team, meaning their point of reference for hot hip-hop is early '90s Hammer. Even Chris Kaman understands that ain't "Hip."
Los Angeles Lakers
Starship' "We Built This City" has come to be accepted as one of-if not THE-cheesiest rock and roll songs off all time. So, a fitting inspiration for perhaps THE cheesiest NBA highlight theme of all time:
We're the L.A. Lakers,
Laying it up right,
Too many breakaways,
Heating up the night!
Magic leads the fast break,
Riley makes the Lakers go,
Don't you remember,
We built this city"Â¦
We built this city on BASK-ET-BALL!
If Los Angeles was built on basketball, then it was very nearly destroyed by synthesizers.
For a very short time in the mid-'80s, one of the League' preeminent dunkers was a white dude. Tom Chambers somehow defied both gravity and his flaxen mullet to throw down repeated sickness. This posterizing of Mark Jackson is particularly brutal-the slow motion reveals that at one point mid-flight Chambers is looking down at the rim. Vanilla sky!
Vlade Divac was the heart and soul of those very-good-but-never-great Kings teams of the last decade. Despite never winning a title, Vlade shows us in this clip that life does go on, particularly if you are open to getting drunk and dancing in the street with some leather-clad Euro-types. And, really, who isn't?
