Ratings couldn't be any higher.

When ESPN cut back from commercial during a college football game last night, they caught  broadcaster and former player Bill Walton going on about marijuana legalization, with others in the room cheering him on, saying “get ‘em, Bill.” As if to make this clip even better, he’s also dressed in a full Uncle Sam garb, asking Obama to free anyone who was arrested for marijuana-related crimes.

It’s pretty awesome. Though, this isn’t the first time Bill Walton has let his pot politics known. He’s criticized marijuana laws on ESPN2 before, as well.

But I’ll tell you one guy who didn’t find it awesome or “cool.” This guy:

Watch This High School Player Shatter a Backboard, Which Is Still The Coolest Thing You Can Do

Shattering the backboard, is there a greater display of dominance? It sends the message that not only am I slam-dunking this shit, no one else is going to be playing until we clean this up and get a new hoop.

That’s how Isaiah Banks of Heritage High School student became the coolest kid in school.

In cast you’re wondering, this was at the end of the game, which Heritage won, 40-14. Ain’t nothing sicker than that.

Check out some more sick dunks:

Dad fight!

Missouri and Georgia ended the first half of their game on Saturday with a slobber knocker. After two players got into it a little bit, two coaches, Georgia’s Kent Davidson and Missouri’s Steve Sheilds, started going at it too. They were probably fighting over what show was better Ray Donovan or Goliath.

Dads.

Can we just stop Justin Timberlake from doing stuff?

It’s enough that he’s an acclaimed singer, dancer, and actor, but does he have to be good at free throws, too? And this is just him messing around the court, sinking half-court shots. What's next? He gonna be really good at predicting what month comes after April?

The rage. 

I mean, maybe he could be good at cleaning up the ocean or getting humans to Mars, things that would benefit all of us instead of just making us feel bad about ourselves. Right? Then again, we’d probably be just as annoyed at that too.

JT, give it a rest. Enjoy your millions of dollars and, what seems like, a really nice and supportive relationship with Jessica Biel.

Louisville women’s basketball coach Jeff Walz made a genius call on Monday night, sending his team out facing the wrong basket to begin the third quarter against Duke.

For Harlem Globetrotter Buckets Blakes, everyday is World Trick Shot Day. But for the rest of us, only December 6 is.

So in honor of America’s favorite holiday, World Trick Shot Day, Buckets went to the Tower of the America in San Antonio, Texas to show us the true meaning of the holiday. It’s the highest shot ever in North America, and as he says, he goes to the top of the tower to “knock it down.”

Buckets takes an elevator to the top of the 58-story building and has to be strapped in via harness to keep from falling. Without much thought, he simply says, “World Trick Shot Day, baby. Let’s get buckets” and swish.

It’s amazing, disorienting, and sure to raise the World Trick Shot Day spirit in all of us.

In honor of World Trick Shot Day, here are some trick shot gifs to waste time with.

Sometimes you think you’ve got life in palm of your hand. Sometimes you think you’ve got it all figured out. Sometimes you just want to run out the clock because whatever it is, it’s in the bag.

Other times, you’re just wrong.

That’s what happened to this poor basketball player who thought his team was winning, so he ran out the clock — he was just wrong.

In last night’s game against Brown University, Bryant University’s Ikenna Ndugba must’ve missed the tie-breaking point in the last 10 seconds because they were still down one point. Thinking that he just had to run out the clock, Ndugba decided to just dribble out the clock and, well, ouch.

They say you miss 100% of the shots you don’t take, and it’s rarely been more true than here.
