Who Dunked It Better? Ricky Davis vs Alonzo Gee

Cleveland edition of Who Dunked It Better? featuring the genius Ricky Davis and current Cavs swingman Alonzo Gee.

Ricky had another worthy example in the same season against Vincent Yarbrough's Nuggets.

World Game

In anticipation of the 2014 World Cup, we'd just like to pay tribute to one of the great moments of USA94.

Twenty years ago, Golden Ball recipient Romário scored this infamous goal on our 486.

This one's for Shirt Off Man.

Landshark to Caron Butler: Get off the blower

Concerned that Caron Butler was getting away with inappropriate gestures in a Playoff environment, we called on our post season expert Landshark to weigh in. And weigh in he did.

Landshark on Butler:

"I am not down with Caron Butler ringing people during games.  Get off the phone mate.  Your hand isn’t a phone.  You are not Get Smart or James Bond.  You look ridiculous.  Where I come from, when people are on the phone anywhere near a game/training you owe the team a slab.  By my accounting, poor as it may be, he owes every NBA fan 3 slabs each.  And I notice now that they are losing, he doesn’t do it anymore.  Reeks of an ill-conceived “celebration” that is absolutely flawed.  Chop his hand off."

Landshark is one of the greatest players of his generation. The Robinson Rd Assassin carved a name for himself in the East as a one man wrecking crew. His thunderous dunk against the Titans in '03 resulted in the unscheduled renovation of the entire MLC stadium. Many still hold him personally responsible for the infamous Scandinavian Tip Dunk Crisis of 2009.

He's bigger than the game itself.


Shout outs to Don Adams.

The Very Best of Andrés Nocioni


And we know we've missed a few.

Andrés Nocioni aka Chapu aka The Wild Bull of the Pampas, is the only player to willingly get posterized and not give a damn.

And like Bradley, we shouldn't overlook the fact that Nocioni won some of these battles too.

For the record, Olympic gold medals:
Nocioni - 1
Richard Jefferson - 0

Who Dunked It Better? Michael Jordan vs Dwyane Wade

Mike's putback during the Shrug Game gets the nod, but the similarities are worth noting if nothing else.

Nobody told us, but the film clip for the hip hop anthem "The Scientist" features an Allen Iverson home jersey circa 2002.


In lieu of The Scientist, here is Apollo Brown's The Answer for your listening pleasure.
