You know what's better than basketball? Basketball with fights. 

Serge Ibaka gave Robin Lopez a little shove the other night at the Raptors/Bulls game, and Lopez was having none of it. The two went at it as fellow players, coaches, and officials tried to break it up, but not before they both landed a punch. Smack.

I love this shit.

Last night's Warriors-Thunder game was fun for Steph Curry. 

First, he dunked, which, as you know, just the coolest. 

But then things took a turn for whatever reason, and Steph Curry got in a shoving match with Semaj Christon. Basketball is fun!

March Madness is in full effect, and one little guy is really feeling it. 

At the Northwestern-Gonzaga game yesterday, refs called a technical on Northwestern coach Chris Collins after he complained about a missed goal-tending call. Me talking about basketball is hard. Anyway, the refs messed up, a coach complained about it, and then he got in trouble too. That's the gist. 

Whatever it was, this little kid is really bummed out about it. 

Here's a good video  of the missed call:



Here's a good gif of that kid crying:

March Madness really gets to people.

There are few things in this world I love more than a good mascot fail. You get top points if that fail is performed by Clutch the bear, the infamous bear mascot of the Huston Rockets, who's the best. 

This one's pretty good, too, though. During the Phoenix Suns-Washington Wizards game last night, a guy in a gorilla suit did a little slip and slide onto the court for some reason. Check it out:

That gorilla is none other than the Phoenix Suns mascot, The Suns Gorilla. Now, why this happened is as big of a mystery as why the Phoenix Suns mascot is a gorilla. But one thing is for sure, the Suns don't seem to find this all that surprising because no one seems to give a shit. 

Everyone seems to like it. And why shouldn't they? Mascots are the best.

No one ever said that coaching a rag-tag team of misfit youngsters isn't easy. Ask anyone from the Bad News Bears to the Mighty Ducks. 

Sometimes you gotta step in and make sure they play right. So that's exactly what this coach did, stopping his own player from making the biggest mistake of their young lives. 

And because this is so good, enjoy it in gif form.

It pays to be tall in basketball, but it also isn't so bad being a short, little guy either.

To paraphrase Obama, when they go high, we go low. 

Check out what Delaware 87ers Nate Robinson pulled off, sneaking between Edy Tavares legs when the 87ers took on the Canton Raptors. 

Yahoo says: "Diminutive guard Nate Robinson spent parts of 11 NBA seasons defying expectations of the size and skillset required to play in the best basketball league in the world. Now in the midst of a comeback with the Delaware 87ers in the D-League, Robinson is proving he still has plenty of tricks to offer at 32 years old." 

So cool.

Shaq Tells JaVale McGee ‘I’ll Smack The S**t Out Yo Bum Ass’, Instantly Igniting Hilarious Twitter RageFest

JaVale McGee, center for the Golden State Warriors is the regular target of Shaq when it comes to getting roasted, toasted, and stomped on for all the public eye to see (thank goodness for us). You could know next to nothing/not care at all about NBA basketball, and you'll still get a kick out of the big man igniting the rage of Mr. JaVale McGee in the following Twitter exchange. Let's just hope JaVale learnt a thing or two about not going toe-to-toe with the comedically-inclined pair of 22's. Yeah, still processing how big Shaq's feet are over here.

LeBron James Made an Amazing Three Last Night and Twitter Is Losing It

At a certain point, it would be cool if LeBron James let someone else do something cool. Like, for instance, I can do a wheelie on my GT Performer, and no one is making a cool list for me. 

But until then, just watch in awe as LeBron James makes an amazing free and people made a bunch of hilarious reactions to it.

Say what you will about velcro, it gets the job done.

This poor basketball player had a rough day. After losing her shoe during a game, she just couldn’t get the traction needed to stand up straight and play the game. Slipping and sliding all over the court, she was probably thinking, “Why didn’t I tie my shoe better? Next time, I’ll use velcro, the thinking person’s lace.”

As Alanis Morrissette once sang, possibly in reference to switching over to velcro shoes, “You live, you learn.”

Sometimes life just up and drills you with an entirely unplanned curveball of a shitty situation. This is one of those times. Keep your eyes peeled for the later half of the movie, and brace yourself as you witness what's easily already the most cringeworthy kiss cam performance of 2017.

Turns Out the Soundtrack to Titanic Makes Basketball a Million Times More Hilarious

Now if only we can get a clip of his Air-ness Michael Jordan screaming “I’m king of the world!”

@TitanicHoops is an ingenious twitter account that shows basketball highlights while playing the music from Titanic. It’s as simple of that.

However, one of the surprising things about it is that it makes basketball even better, if not more emotionally powerful. I mean, I once thought there’s nothing more emotional than a serious dunk, but then I watched it with “My Heart Will Go On” by Celine Dion playing. I’m shook. I'm changed. I'm the king of the world.
