Chances are that a football coach is the highest paid employee in your state. Or, alternatively, a basketball coach. That’s crazy.

‎”Basketball diplomacy: North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un and former basketball star Dennis Rodman speaking at a basketball game in Pyongyang.”The most high profile American to visit North Korea in years, and it’s … Dennis Rodman.
Kind of want the North Korean secret police’s transcript of this conversation.
Of all the guys in the background, can you tell which one is part of Rodman’s entourage?

Hmmm. I’m pretty sure Michael Jordan is best known for something else…
[Update: Yes. Yes it’s real.]

Fox News screen shots get pretty annoying after awhile — yes, we get it, Fox News sucks — but this one is pretty amazing.

After the men’s basketball final at every olympics, I think to myself, hmm, if you add up the collective salary of the American basketball team, you could probably pay every other player from every other country twice. And yet, and yet, the Americans always seem to win by a slim victory, or in some cases lose. 107-100, against Spain, pfft. With the money they make, it should be a gong show every time. 
In the words of my highly over-celebrated compatriot, Shania Twain, that don’t impress me much. Seriously, NBA owners, Spain came that close. You’re payin these guys too much fuckin money, for real.

Does anyone ever say that anymore? I heard that song during the Argentina - US basketball game, and couldn’t recall the last time I heard anyone say it. That’s like old school NBA Jam.

LeBron James posterizes a Tunisian National Team player while mimicking the Olympic basketball logo. Is there anything King James can’t do? Oh wait, besides getting turned down by United States swimmer, Lauren Perdue. Ouch.
