Seriously, is the Golden State Warriors pair disrespecting the TBL in this ESPN promo ad…? Deron Williams played there, you know… Shout out to heinnews for the tip.
This one’s semi-viral, so you may have seen it already. If not, do check out the Amazing Spiderman (Who is this mysterious webslinger, anyway?) playing some serious one-on-one streetball. Let’s see Bruce Wayne do this… Shout out to heinnews for the tip!
This one is billed over at the fantastic Live Leak as a “parenting funny fail”, but this father of three sees absolutely no problem here. Well, excepting that the daddy in question appears to be a Boston Celtics fan…
As one of the world’s most prestigious protracted workouts for youth ballers, the Adidas Eurocamp will certainly produce innumerable highlight clips at which to gawk in the leadup to the NBA Draft (not to mention Europe’s 2013-14 seasons) … but BallinEurope may already have a favorite. Courtesy Hoops Fix, here’s Edgaras Ulanovas of Lithuania showing […]
Attempting to distract the free-throw shooter into missing the gimme has been proven ineffective perhaps millions of times since Dr. Naismith set down the rules – though this showing put forth by Legadue’s Basket Brescia Leonessa fans could well be the finest effort with the stratagem to date … ah, Italy!
Is Vassilis Spanoulis throwing down a gauntlet? As the Euroleague official website leads its interview with The Captain by describing him as having “taken his place among the all-time greats of basketball by leading Olympiacos Piraeus to just the second Euroleague repeat title in the last two decades,” the below picture appears on the site’s […]
Quote of Euroleague Final Four tournament: “I think I did a great job of being Sonny Weems this season”
The eminently quotable Sonny Weems was in fine form before his club’s matchup with Olympiacos in Euroleague Final Four play. See below for his talk with media members in which he downplays the revenge factor going into tonight’s game (of course, Sonny was not one of the half-dozen players who ended up on the wrong […]
BallinEurope’s not exactly sure whose inspiration the below-embedded clip starring three Ratiopharm Ulm studs was or why Per Günther agreed to serve as guinea pig to test the classic punchline/sound bite of basketball subculture, namely “white men can’t jump.” (Or if you prefer, “Weiße Jungs bringens nicht” for appropriate local flavor.

Yesterday, Sannti (a.k.a. Savas Birdal) basically won Twitter and the entire internet yesterday by posting the one Euroleague bracket guaranteed to be 100% correct – not to mention encapsulating in a single image at least one team’s entire 2012-13 season. Click here to experience the genius.
Goran Dragic only appeared in 55 games with Shaquille O’Neal in the 2008-09 season, but it appears he learned a lesson pointed enough to be well summarized in 141-character Twitter length. And here it is: “@espo: @goran_dragic What was the best lesson @shaq taught you?” Be your self and always pass him the ball:) lol […]
France’s Pro B league doesn’t get much media attention in the US and after the latest segment of “Shaqtin’ A Fool,” they won’t be hankering for another clip to appear on NBA TV. Check out Shaq’s no. 5 choice for the televised wall of shame, as SPO Rouen Basket head coach Sciarra Laurent applies a […]
BallinEurope will leave the questions about just how Dennis Rodman ended up taking his distinct breed of basketball diplomacy to Italy after a less-than-uncontroversial visit to North Korea with a few Harlem Globetrotters… Instead, we’ll just let Taiwan-based Next Media Animation explain things; apparently, The Worm’s mission involves some NBA Jam-esque two-on-two in a match […]
