Back in 2016, young Danielle Bregoli appeared in a Dr. Phil segment eloquently titled: "I Want To Give Up My Car-Stealing, Knife-Wielding, Twerking 13-Year-Old Daughter Who Tried To Frame Me For A Crime." She made the most of it, and even gained fame for her instant catchphrase "cash me outside". Usually, that's where a viral moment ends. However, Bregoli (now known as Bhad Bhabie) has actually parlayed that one moment into a legitimate career. She's a rapper signed by Atlantic Records, and her videos have millions and millions of views.
We see this happen often in sports and in basketball specifically. The national media and even front offices start paying more attention to high-profile televised games -- the NCAA tournament, the NBA playoffs, etc. If a player can make the most out of their time in the spotlight, then they can parlay that into huge success themselves. College players who have big tournaments shoot up draft boards. NBA... keep reading on reddit ➡
I'm a soccer fan, so teams who are on top tend to stay on top.
I like that the NBA is more competitive, but wondering if this changes every season due to draft and trades, or is there traditionally a dominant few teams?
This man showed no fear, worked harder than anyone and showed the way for future european players.
5 years later & he’s a 2-time NBA Champion, NBA All-Star, 2-time NBA DPOY & 2-time 1st Team All-Defense.
Just thinking about Rodman after seeing Scottie’s unlikely college story again the other night. Crazy that 2 guys who had literally nowhere (not just no D1 offers) to play basketball after High School turned out to be 2 of the greatest players to ever lace them up.
Comment is paraphrased, but do you guys think this is true? I believe this is undisputed for anyone that makes it to the nba, but G-League?
Premise: I wouldn't make this post if it wasn't for the fact that what I've learned after watching the doc has made some of my initial conclusions about this show completely ridiculous. I find this entertaining and I'd like to share with this community, hoping you all will find it funny and light-hearted too. Enjoy judging my takeaways!
About me: In my late 20s, originally from a country where basketball is barely a thing. My whole knowledge of the sport comes from Space Jam, so of course I knew who MJ and the Bulls were, but that was about it. I don't even know what the player positions are called.
Now, I'm a big fan of documentaries and of sports in general, so when The Last Dance aired I was happy to have found something interesting on Netflix. And the documentary was okay except that... I later understood, by browsing this sub, that my conclusions and impressions were pretty misguided.
What I'm writing below are the opinions I formed sim... keep reading on reddit ➡
The NBA has made an official announcement on how they will be handling the remainder of the season. You can learn more about how Yahoo is handling the news from our help pages.
Hi, I am new in this community and this is my first post here. I want to clarify that this is done on mobile and I am not from any English speaking countries so my English can be bad.
The story happened when I was 10th grade. Me and my 2 close friends( we knew each other since 3rd grade) went to a basketball court and played some basketball as usual. We played for around an hour and we were about to leave. Then a Woman with her child( around 13 idk why the child is 13 and his mom is still with him) walked to us and the child said that he wanted a 2v2. I accepted. Me and one of my friend were carrying the team and scored many points. After the game ended, the EM accused me of being a cheater (though I didn’t) and the conversation went a bit like this: EM: You! Stop right there! Me: Me?(I didn’t really know who she was talking about since me and my 2 friends we standing close together) EM: Yeah, you. You have been scoring too many points and you are cheating. Me: How am I cheating?... keep reading on reddit ➡
How have you been spending your quarantine time? Well, as a comedic sports statistics writer, I spent mine figuring out how to scrape every single play-by-play game data available on basketball reference which goes back to the 96-97 season - teased out a bunch of variables and ran some code to hunt for the player that suffered the worst shooting cold-streak in modern NBA history. You've heard of the hot hand, but let me tell you a grand ole tale about the cold hand. Buckle up - here we go.
Kevin Burleson (KB) played one year of NBA ball with the Charlotte Bobcats during the 2005-06 season. He came off the bench in all but one of his 39 active games averaging 8 minutes and 42 seconds of playing time and 2.3 shots per game. This comes to a total of 88 career shot attempts of which 35 in a row somehow failed to splash nylon. This is... keep reading on reddit ➡
