Why doctors asked an NBA player to stick his arm into a dolphin
Why doctors asked an NBA player to stick his arm into a dolphin
Day ago
Sometimes it seems like athletes' extreme bodies and extreme skills are uniquely suited for the games they play. Other times, you get stories like this one: In the '70s, a zoo in California faced disaster when a bottlenose dolphin swallowed a screw, and the screw got lodged way deeper in its digestive system than any instrument or human arm could reach. But wait ... what about a gigantic human? One of the zoo employees just happened to know Golden State Warriors center Clifford Ray, who just happened to be at home recovering from an injury. A eureka moment and some good luck led to a very strange dolphin rescue, and a very good story for Clifford Ray.

In 2008, the Detroit Lions finished with a humiliating 0-16 record. That same year, EA Sports released the video game “Head Coach 09.” We’re going to use it to fix these Lions, and we’re going to try to do it by calling just one offensive play for an entire season. Welcome to the Fumble Dimension.

Randy Moss never won a Super Bowl. Here's what left him empty-handed.
7 days ago
Plenty of athletes have proclaimed themselves to be “the greatest,” but few have the individual accolades to back it up like Randy Moss. He led the league in receiving touchdowns five times, set a record for that same stat in his age-30 season, and twice was the focal point of historically dominant offenses. And still, no team featuring the Freak managed to win the Super Bowl. Why? You might remember a missed field goal from his rookie year being the reason, but that was far from the only chance to put it away. You might remember David Tyree’s helmet catch, but that’s not the only reason the Patriot’s pursuit for perfection was derailed. I didn’t even remember that in the final game of his career, Moss had another chance to go out on top. How could one career have so much heartbreak to go along with so many achievements? Why did Randy Moss, one of the greatest athletes to ever play in the NFL, finish his career empty-handed?

LeBron James' worst playoff game was the 2011 Finals failure all his doubters wanted to see
LeBron James' worst playoff game was the 2011 Finals failure all his doubters wanted to see
17 days ago
There is no question now that LeBron James is one of the greatest basketball players ever. You can measure that in individual brilliance, and also in team success. He’s got championships. LeBron’s playoff career is packed wall-to-wall with astounding brilliance, and if you dig for his worst playoff performances ever - like, say, for a video series called The Worst - you will be amazed by how few substandard postseason performances he has on record. That said, there are a few stinkers. And the stinkiest of the stinkers serves as a fascinating reminder of a different, less certain point in LeBron’s playoff history. LeBron’s mainstream reputation entering Game 4 of the 2011 NBA Finals against the Dallas Mavericks is so different from what it is now. He wasn’t yet a champion - in fact, he’d had a couple notable individual failures in pursuit of his first ring in Cleveland. He wasn’t yet widely beloved - in fact, it was pretty popular to look down on the guy for leaving Cleveland to “take the easy way out” and form a “superteam” in Miami. Within that context, James played one of the worst playoff games of his career. He was passive and deferent at times, over-aggressive and heavy-handed at others. His stats were terrible, and the Heat blew a fourth-quarter lead to lose Game 4, allowing the Mavs to tie the series at 2-2. And then Dallas won the whole thing, and LeBron had himself a very difficult summer. Purely in terms of basketball, it was the low point of his career. This episode of The Worst plumbs that low point, because it was lower than you might recall, and because doing so helps us better appreciate how far he’s come, and how magnificently he has risen since that baaaaad bad period in 2011.

It’s ok if the name Chester Marcol doesn’t mean anything to you. After today though, try and clear out a special place in your brain for our friend Chester. He has lived a very interesting life, which you can read all about here, and became a fairly solid kicker for the Packers throughout the 1970s. He made a couple All-Pro teams, won NFC Rookie of the Year, eventually even was enshrined in the Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame. But absolutely none of that matters. There is only one thing you need to know. Chester Marcol scored one of the dumbest touchdowns you’ll ever see. Everything you need to know is in the video above, including footage of the actual play, if that’s all you really want to see then skip ahead to like three minutes in.

Barry Bonds never won a World Series. Here's what left him empty-handed.
22 days ago
Barry Bonds was difficult, and he was controversial ... but he was also better at hitting baseballs than almost anyone who ever lived. An MLB team could not ask for better production from a hitter, and yet none of Bonds' teams -- including some very good ones -- ever won a World Series. So why not? What happened? You may be inclined to give simple answers to those questions, but we're here to dig deeper into the actual deciding factors that kept Bonds short of a ring. Sometimes he struggled in the postseason, sometimes his teammates did. Sometimes he came through in the clutch, sometimes he very notably didn't. Sometimes bad luck, bad managerial decisions, and bad timing interfered. This episode of Untitled investigates each of those seasons Bonds approached glory -- including the year his Giants came just a few outs away -- and figures out precisely what went wrong.

Ray Allen and Rajon Rondo went from "brothers" to beef
Ray Allen and Rajon Rondo went from "brothers" to beef
26 days ago
Ray Allen and Rajon Rondo started as close friends. When Allen got traded to the Celtics, he became a mentor for the young Rondo, and that relationship was one of many elements that made that Boston team a champion in 2008. But Ray Allen cares very much about controlling his own fate, and as Rondo's somewhat difficult personality emerged, so did some rumors of trades that involved not just him, but his friend Ray. That thorny connection caused a close friendship to devolve, sometimes with explosive results. But what really turned this "brotherhood" into beef was Ray's departure in 2012 for the Miami Heat, the team that had twice prevented Boston from winning another title. Allen's "betrayal" alienated from all of his former teammates, a development that came back under scrutiny as the '08 Celtics started to get honors and commemorative ceremonies in recent years, then again when Allen released his autobiography. This is a story about how any bond -- even one gilded with championship gold -- can be broken.

Steve Nash never won an NBA championship. Here's what left him empty-handed.
Month ago
Steve Nash has every individual accolade an NBA player could dream of, but his teams never won a championship, never even made the Finals. Those teams include some of the best, most innovative teams ever to play the game. So ... why? What obstacles stood between Nash's teams and glory? The answer is an absolute parade of close calls and heartbreak. Nash's first stint on the Suns had more promise than you might remember. His time as Dirk Nowitzki's co-star in Dallas came pretty close, but ran into injuries and some seriously un-clutch moments. Nash's Suns were amazing, but had one freak accident after another. And the Lakers ... we don't really need to talk about the Lakers. Watch the full episode for the dramatic details of how every Nash team fell short. He had one of the most successful careers of any pro athlete ever, but it's still hard not to feel sorry for how things shook out.

Fumble Dimension is a new video series from Kofie Yeboah and Jon Bois. Our mission is to use the universes within video games to conduct experiments that, in the real world, would be impossible. And, ideally, break as much stuff as possible along the way. This episode is titled “THE QUEST FOR THE ULTIMATE NFL PLAY,” it’s a two-parter, and it’s a barn-burner. In Part 1, we used NFL Head Coach 09 to attempt to design the perfect offensive play entirely from scratch. Jon, Kofie, Banner Society football expert Richard Johnson, and Madden champion Young Kiv each designed plays of their own.

On September 25th, 2006, the Saints returned to New Orleans for their first home game since Hurricane Katrina. On Monday Night Football, the nation watched as it took just four snaps for history to be made. Steve Gleason blocked the punt, Curtis Deloatch recovered, and so much of what led up to the game was forgotten. Even before Katrina made landfall the Saints’ future was up in the air with talks of relocation coming as owner Tom Benson delayed negotiations with the state. On top of that, the Saints were facing a dangerous Falcons team led by Michael Vick and Warrick Dunn, and just a play before it looked like Atlanta wouldn’t even need to punt.

Month ago
Why didn't Charles Barkley win an NBA championship? The simple answers -- "MJ" and "Hakeem" -- don't do justice to the depth of a career spent falling short of the ultimate goal. To really understand why, we need to dig into the teams: the excellent but fading 76ers that drafted Barkley, the brilliant '90s Suns, and the old late-'90s Rockets. Then we need to dig further into what happened to them -- the injuries, the blown leads, the makes and misses that comprised playoff defeat. Barkley's individual greatness is well understood, but his teams' playoff failure too often gets simplified, almost into a meme. Episode 1 of UNTITLED will show you how close his teams came, and the specific events that led to their falling short.

The biggest curse-ending moment in baseball history demands a deep rewind | 2016 World Series Game 7
Month ago
This is perhaps the most important at-bat in baseball history. With two outs in the bottom of the tenth inning of Game 7 of the 2016 World Series, the Chicago Cubs stared down Cleveland looking for one final out. The difference between an out and a hit -- potentially a walk-off hit -- would determine which curse reached its end: Chicago's painful, generations-long "Billy Goat Curse" or Cleveland's own long history of defeat on the biggest stage. This moment was so big that it kind of buried how absurd the whole game was. Chicago had come back to tie the series, but experienced some bad breaks, then fully blew their substantial lead when Rajai Davis homered off typically lights-out closer Aroldis Chapman. After more bad breaks, Chicago finally pulled ahead again thanks to more heroics in the top of the tenth, but in this moment, stood one big hit-- and more scoring from Davis-- away from blowing it all again. Before we watch this monumental baseball event, we have so much rewinding to do.

The Chicago Bulls were really good for a little while there. With Joakim Noah, Derrick Rose, and Luol Deng leading the way, the Bulls had some elite seasons ... like, better than whichever team LeBron James was on at the time. But in every instance, Noah's Bulls ran into LeBron on one of his many runs to the NBA Finals. Like so many other LeBron victims, Noah developed a beef with The King. What made his unique? Well, for one, he was a much better player in his prime than some other irritants. And besides that, Noah's personality is distinct: Annoying, yet sensitive; prone to dishing out disrespect, but also liable to react when disrespected. All that adds up to several playoff runs full of grappling, bickering, and trash-talking the city of Cleveland. It's a pretty good beef.

On January 7th, 2010, Tom Brady won the NFL’s Comeback Player of the Year Award. On January 10th, 2010, Tom Brady had the earliest playoff exit of his career. Touchdown Tom turned the ball over four times, threw for just 154 yards on 42 attempts, and allowed the Baltimore Ravens to walk all over him to deliver Brady’s first home playoff loss. The real shame about his performance is that it distracted from Joe Flacco’s hilariously inept numbers: 4-10 for 34 yards, no touchdowns, one interception.

The 1995 ALDS between the Seattle Mariners and the Wild Card-winning New York Yankees was a big deal. The Yankees were playing their first postseason baseball in well over a decade. The Mariners felt like they were playing for their home: A deal for a new stadium in Seattle depended in some part on the team and its fans proving they were worth the investment. After New York won the first 2 games at home, Seattle rallied to tie the series, and it all came down to the bottom of the 11th inning. The Mariners trailed by one run with one out, runners at the corners, and slugger Edgar Martinez at the plate. This episode of REWINDER investigates the backstory of this moment -- the stadium drama, the Yankees' prior history, and the paths each Mariner took to participating in that critical moment. It's one of the most exciting events in baseball history, and it meant so much to so many people.

Al Davis had a fairly simple mantra: just win baby. The Oakland Raiders did a lot of that from 2000-2002, culminating in a trip to the Super Bowl to face their former coach and architect of that early 2000s squad. As we all know, for Oakland, it didn't go well...like at all. But having won three straight division championships, there was understandably a belief that this team could maintain some level of success. They made it to the Super Bowl once, why couldn't they do it again? Well, as it turned out there were quite a few reasons. Check out this episode of Collapse to relive how they fell from greatness.

Georgia Tech and Florida State’s miraculous, unexpected ending in 2015 deserves a deep rewind
3 months ago
Florida State and Georgia Tech are tied at 16, but the 9th-ranked Seminoles are looking to end it with a 56-yard field goal. The moment that comes next captures what makes college football so incredible. A made field goal would give Florida State 29-straight wins against ACC opponents, a mark that would tie their own record set in the 90s. It would keep their quest for a third straight unbeaten regular season alive. And it would be one more cruel twist of the knife lodged in Georgia Tech this year. The Yellow Jackets are left praying for a miracle and not a second straight week losing by a last-second 56-yard field goal. While they’ve fallen far from their 11-win season a year ago, they haven’t backed down tonight, and if they can derail Florida State’s playoff chances, they’d be doing so in front of their home crowd on homecoming weekend.

Steve Bartman is far from the only reason for the Cubs’ 2003 disaster of an inning
Steve Bartman is far from the only reason for the Cubs’ 2003 disaster of an inning
3 months ago
If you're not a Chicago Cubs fan, you probably remember the Cubs' nightmarish 8th inning of the 2003 NLCS because of Steve Bartman. One random fan became a household name because he was in the wrong place in the wrong time at what felt like a turning point in the series. There's a whole documentary explaining how Bartman became such a scapegoat. But even a slightly deeper look reveals two things: 1. That 8th inning really does stand out as horrible, even when compared to the other playoff meltdowns in Chicago's 100-plus-year drought. 2. Bartman certainly didn't help the Cubs, but he hurt them far, far less than they hurt themselves. 2003 was the worst, but to understand why, you need to look beyond Bartman and recall the wild pitch, the error, the shaky coaching, and the failed relief appearances. None of those things should take second billing to some fan who fan who slapped a foul ball.

How the Lakers fell from contention to ruin during Kobe Bryant’s final seasons
How the Lakers fell from contention to ruin during Kobe Bryant’s final seasons
3 months ago
As far as basketball goes, Kobe Bryant had what he needed by 2010. Without Shaq sharing his spotlight, Bryant won consecutive NBA championships, proving he could do that as the Lakers' primary superstar. But he wasn't done, and he wanted to stick around in Los Angeles, so the Lakers acted accordingly. Or at least they tried to. LA -- run by a complex, ever-changing, and sometimes nepotistic front office -- soon realized the core that earned them back-to-back rings wasn't going to cut it against some rising Western Conference powerhouses. So they swung a huge trade to bring in superstar Chris Paul. When that trade got vetoed by the league, things started to spiral: Upset co-stars led to desperate dismissals, which led to desperate acquisitions, which led to diminishing organic growth and eventually a whole lot of losing. The Lakers said farewell to Kobe with their worst seasons as a franchise. This episode of Collapse explains how they fell so precipitously within the twilight of their departing star.

Ben Affleck’s Boston fandom shut down ‘Gone Girl’ production for four days

Would you wear the garb of your favorite team's most hated rival? What if you got paid? What if you were getting paid millions of dollars, because you're a professional actor and it's literally your job to put on costumes and pretend to be someone else? Well, Ben Affleck checks that last box, but when Gone Girl director David Fincher insisted Affleck's character wear a Yankees hat in one scene, Ben said no. He's too big of a Red Sox fan to do that, even in a movie. This raises some questions: Does having a character wear a Yankees cap say something specific about that character? If so ... what? And if Affleck isn't okay with wearing the hat of his rival, then what *is* he okay with doing just for the sake of a movie?

Michael Crabtree's legendary moment against Texas deserves a deep rewind
3 months ago
It’s November 1st, 2008. We’re in Lubbock, Texas. The number one Texas Longhorns are trying to hold off the BCS’s number-seven Texas Tech Red Raiders. Clinging to a one-point lead with eight seconds left, if UT’s defense can make one last stand their title shot is nearly guaranteed. Tech, on the other hand, has the chance to not only upset a rival but throw themselves into the national championship conversation at the same time. Both teams stand at 8-and-0. Obviously, one team won’t stay perfect. And there’s enough on the line that what comes next is guaranteed to overshadow how we got here. Where did this Tech team come from? How did Texas become the best in the nation? How we got here makes what comes next all the more special. So, let’s rewind.

How Jim Harbaugh's 49ers plummeted from the cusp of Super Bowl glory to rock bottom
3 months ago
The San Francisco 49ers were so bad for nearly a decade throughout the 2000s. Then, CEO Jed York and GM Trent Baalke miraculously landed the hottest coaching commodity out there: Jim Harbaugh. The Niners beat out Stanford, where he’d just led the Cardinal to its first-ever BCS Bowl win, Michigan, his alma mater where he starred at quarterback in the ‘80s, and the Miami Dolphins, who … still had a head coach in place. Yet Harbaugh took that squad that had long been an NFL bottomfeeder and overnight turned them into Goliath. For three seasons they soared majestically atop the football universe, but came up just short of securing the franchise’s sixth Lombardi Trophy each time. Despite injecting a ton of winning into an organization that had long been starving for mere competence, management decided to fix what was the furthest thing from broken - and because of their pride and ego, they sent the entire operation into an uncontrollable tailspin.

USA Basketball's shocking finish vs. Yugoslavia needs a deep rewind | 2002 FIBA World Championship
3 months ago
After nearly all the stars dropped out, USA Basketball sent an awkwardly constructed, ill-prepared team to the 2002 FIBA World Championship. This is the story not only of their startling run in the tournament, but of their opponent in the knockout round: Yugoslavia. After decades of being truly "Yugoslavian" -- a multi-ethnic basketball powerhouse -- the team calling itself by that name was by 2002 only composed of Serbian and Montenegrin players. Those included one star holdover from the old days (Vlade Divac), plus some promising youngsters like Peja Stojakovic. Check out this episode of REWINDER to see what went down, and how these two teams with very different trajectories got to that point.

Tua Tagovailoa's overtime heroics in the 2018 National Championship deserve a deep rewind
3 months ago
It’s January 8, 2018. Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia. The College Football National Championship game is in overtime and the hometown Georgia Bulldogs have struck first, putting a 51-yard field goal through the uprights to make this a do or die drive for the Alabama Crimson Tide. The fate of the championship lies in the hands of the Alabama offense, but the quarterback of this offense started this game on the bench. Despite coming within one second of winning the 2017 National Championship, Alabama quarterback Jalen Hurts was benched at half time. In the first half, he completed just three passes for twenty-one yards. Hardly a championship performance. Alabama Head Coach decided to start the second half with true freshman Tua Tagovailoa under center. Now in overtime, Alabama has a chance to win it all but a sack on first down has them in a precarious second and twenty-six situation. Welcome to a moment in history.

Someone tried to pay $15,000 for a bag of air from Kobe Bryant's final NBA game
3 months ago
I don't understand sports memorabilia collecting. We all are fans of different things, so the value is all over the place and feels like an extremely questionable investment. I know some people collect just because they like the stuff - but for the person who tried to spend $15,000 on a bag of air there's no way they saw that as anything other than an investment they could flip later. Or they just had too much wine and stumbled around eBay for a while (looking at you, mom). After Kobe Bryant's final NBA game, someone posted a Ziploc bag to eBay that allegedly contained air from Staples Center. That's all. Nothing more. Not like Kobe farted into the bag or graced it with his lips to blow a breath into the super trusty and unlikely to be punctured container. It was just air, from a stadium, full of rowdy fans watching a dude play a game for the last time. And yet, it took off. Why? How? Who? Won't someone think of the children?

Dirk Nowitzki’s worst playoff game spoiled his MVP season and had people questioning his legacy
4 months ago
Today, Dirk Nowitzki's legacy is untouchable. He's an MVP, a champion, a Finals MVP, and one of the greatest players in the history of Dallas Mavericks, the NBA, and the whole continent of Europe. He ended his playing career beloved, revered, and dignified. So it's pretty amazing to reflect on the low point of that career: a surprising playoff defeat so grim that it threatened to tarnish legacy for good. Dirk was the soon-to-be MVP and the leader of the league's best regular season team, so for him to perform as poorly as he did in a decisive Game 6 against the underdog Golden State Warriors was devastating. The whole of Dirk's superstar career eclipsed the bad times, but MAN, those bad times were ... the worst.

If your basketball team depends on you to handle the ball a lot -- to create for yourself, to pass to teammates, to draw fouls, and so on -- you might end up setting the wrong kind of record. This episode of HIGH SCORE examines the instances in NBA and WNBA history in which a single player has racked up a ton of turnovers. Like, as many turnovers as a whole team would typically commit. Our major finding is that you don't commit double-digit turnovers in one game because you suck. It happens because you're the star of your team, and the high usage that comes with stardom also invites risk. If you're playing alongside a depleted lineup, or facing an overwhelming defense, or just like to throw ambitious passes, you might find yourself in this episode.

How the Knicks' terrible leadership turned a contender into 20 years of misery
How the Knicks' terrible leadership turned a contender into 20 years of misery
4 months ago
Two important things happened to the mighty New York Knicks in 1999: First, after years of contending and one very strange regular season, the 8th-seeded Knicks made an incredible run to the NBA Finals. Second, noted rich person James Dolan inherited control of the team. What seemed like the dawn of another prosperous era was very much not that. After failing to match their '99 run the following season, the Knicks made a foolish, desperate trade to rid themselves of superstar Patrick Ewing. Thus began a pattern of horrid leadership on Dolan's dime: 20 years of patching holes, refusing to rebuild, falling short of expectations, courting scandal, and losing. So much losing. This is the tale of how THE KNICKS became ... the Knicks. This is a collapse.

To fully appreciate this incredible moment in track and field history, you need to remember how Morocco's Hicham El Guerrouj and Kenya's Noah Ngeny got to this point. You need to remember the history of the mile run, which is an unusual and sort of atavistic event within the sport. You need to know how its record has progressed over the years, in fits and starts marked by head-to-head battles. And you need to know the history of these two men: How El Guerrouj has literally tangled with Algerian legend Noureddine Morceli, whose record he's trying to beat, and how Ngeny helped El Guerrouj beat another one of Morceli's records before this.

Urijah Faber and Dominick Cruz’s beef helped shape the UFC
5 months ago
Urijah Faber and Dominick Cruz met for the first time in 2007 for World Extreme Cagefighting 26. They immediately didn’t get along. That carried on for nearly a decade, moved from the WEC into the UFC, and went on to improve the future of lighter-weight fighters. On paper, it seems like a pretty straight forward, “I respect you but I sure don’t like you.” But over time, with both fighters growing as the sport did the same, it revealed an interesting cycle. Cruz had been forced to look up to Faber when he sat atop the division and Dominick was starting out. Then the table turned and the veteran Faber was left having to answer to the guy he bested in their first get together. All the while, they were both simply trying to raise the bar for all of the lighter-weight fighters who for a long time had been more than an afterthought. In part thanks to their rivalry and the skills they put on display, that changed quickly. And it worked out very well for everyone else because their beef was entertaining as hell.

How many passes can you throw in an NFL game? | High Score
5 months ago
A quarterback dropping back time after time and slinging the ball all over the field from start to finish may be a difficult concept for football's forefathers to grasp. After all, for the first few decades of the sport, the forward pass ranged from illegal to frowned upon. Then Davey O'Brien came along and turned the sport upside down with a 60-pass performance way back in 1940, when the forward pass was generally frowned upon and not far removed from being an altogether illegal transgression. O'Brien's single-game high score was untouchable for decades until some pioneers of volume passing came along when the 1960s rolled around. There are certain circumstances that have led to these heroic volume passers launching their score to another stratosphere, such as trying to climb back from a large deficit or a ground game that's stuck in neutral. But the hidden benefit is earning a spot on this list of royalty -- an honor so noble there was even one quarterback who, though barely ever seeing the field, went hard for the high score seemingly every time out. Or how the current man atop the throne did so as a 37-year-old against the most ferocious defense in history in a game that was close until the end.

The 2011 Women's World Cup in Germany was a rollercoaster, and that includes the two teams that made it to the final. Still mourning the effects of a devastating earthquake in March, Japan vowed to inspire the people back home, and overcame a group stage loss and an early deficit against Sweden to reach the championship game. The United States, despite their #1 ranking, came startlingly close to missing the tournament entirely, then depended on one of the clutchest goals of all time to make it past Brazil. When those two teams met, the drama didn't stop. The US rained shots in the first half, but couldn't get any on goal. Then the youngest player on the team, Alex Morgan, subbed in to play hero. But at the moment from which this episode rewinds, costly mistakes and threatening attacks have put Japan and their star, Homare Sawa, on the doorstep of sending the final to penalty kicks, a scary proposition for the US.

The simplest mistakes can have the biggest consequences. No, I'm not talking about why I'm here in the first place, but an extremely weird rule that can wipe out your entire score if you have just one too many players on the field. What's more is in this sport, there are already 18-players on each side, so honestly how big of a difference is 19? In Aussie Rules Football, if you field one extra person - whether by mistake or a substitute coming on too early for an injured player - the umpires can knock you all the way back down to zero. It's like that kid you played games with growing up who would get frustrated and make up a rule that started everything over. And no one likes that kid. I hope you read this, Tyler.

One of the NBA's strangest leaderboards features all kinds of players who, on one night or another, committed all six of their allotted fouls in just a few minutes. Like ... five or six. This episode of High Score figures out how and why those players made foul-out history, and a lot of it has to do with inexperienced or injured players facing impossible match-ups. But THE record -- the far-and-away high score in this game -- has a different story. It's a story that involves a familiar hacking strategy, a deep-bench player with almost no NBA career to speak of, and a mad scientist coach who seized the opportunity to combine those variables into his weirdest experiment yet.

Kenyon Martin's beef with Tim Thomas includes 50 Cent, cash-slapping, and a kid's birthday party
5 months ago
Kenyon Martin and Tim Thomas weren't exactly NBA superstars. The Knicks and Nets have never had what you'd call a great rivalry. But those two players, playing for those two teams, have one of the stranger beefs in recent NBA history. It started with a hard foul on Thomas in a playoff game (and not even one committed by Martin), continued with an extremely dumb war of words, and resurfaced recently with some spicy podcast appearances and even a potential boxing match. Al Harrington and his children got involved, 50 Cent got involved ... it got weird.

I hate popularity contests. But I love things that go fast. So I'm pretty torn on this weird rule. Formula E races have a fun, extra component to them where fans can vote to decide which race car driver gets a speed boost during the race. It literally pays off to be popular, which is a shame in my book but is a nice way for fans to stay connected in the sport.

Without him, the Giants found the success that had eluded them while Barber was on the roster. And without them, Barber found ways to stay busy. He bashed Eli. He bashed Coughlin.

Klay Thompson and the 3-point chucking gods: What it takes to break the attempts record | High Score
6 months ago
In the first episode of HIGH SCORE, we take a look at how the NBA record for single-game attempts has changed hands over the years. The three-pointer started as an experiment -- a gimmick borrowed from the weirder ABA that gained some popularity thanks to former players from that league. The first players to really run wild with it were members of the 1980s Denver Nuggets, one of the first NBA clubs to really embrace running and gunning. That team's primary shooter, Michael Adams, set the bar for three-point chucking at 20 attempts in a single game, and that would last for years, until some guys playing late-season games on broken, carefree teams figured they'd mess around and break a record. But nowadays, heaving threes is acceptable, and we've seen some incredible recent high scores coming from great players on great teams -- even in a WNBA playoff game. If three-point chucking is a game within the game of basketball, then there's never been a better time to thrive doing both.

What do you call it when the refs don't notice you do something that breaks the rules until it's too late? Is that cheating? Or is that just negligence by the officials? Whatever it is, the Portland Trail Blazers got away with one back in 2008 against the Boston Celtics. They managed to score while six players were on the court. Boston noticed. The refs didn't. But the points had to stand. So just what happened, and how could the NBA fix such an egregious gap in the rules that allowed everyone to live with this?

Lauren Jackson ripping Lisa Leslie's hair out heated up a decade-long beef. Was it intentional?
6 months ago
For a while, Lisa Leslie was arguably the best women's basketball player on the planet. She put up jaw-dropping high school numbers, dominated in college, and became a foundational star not only of the WNBA, but of the powerhouse United States Olympic team. But a few years into her professional career, a new contender emerged: Lauren Jackson, who first battled Leslie as the teenaged star of perennial Olympic runner-up Australia, and then as her WNBA counterpart on the Seattle Storm, rival of Leslie's Los Angeles Sparks. Leslie and Jackson's rivalry included dirty play, open feuding, and some good, old-fashioned gritty basketball ... but it also included one extremely weird incident. In the 2000 Olympic gold medal game, Jackson swung her arm in a strange way that removed Leslie's ponytail extension from the back of her head. While the beef had more important moments, that bizarre one generated the most conversation and controversy. So ... was it intentional? Jackson and Leslie have never agreed on this topic, so we've gotta investigate.

You know what's about to happen. The Dallas Cowboys are in Seattle and looking to take a lead over the Seahawks that could give them their first playoff win in ten years. They've had another year full of dysfunction, but finally look like they will shake out of the funk they've carried for the last decade. You know the disaster that follows, the career that had its wings clipped before it learned to fly, and the first step of a new journey that never seemed to stay on the path. But what about what came before that? So much had to fall perfectly so in order to make this moment what it is, and how it remains in our mind. The pain and heartbreak of an entire franchise, the fans forever divided over the quarterback, the lack of playoff success. It masked what led us to this moment. We forgot everything that raised hope so high and made the landing after the fall so much harder. Welcome to a moment in history.

The Detroit Pistons and their president of basketball operations, Joe Dumars, had constructed a magnificent roster that went out every night and performed a beautiful hoops symphony of selfless ball with ferocious defense. They rode that to an NBA Championship, came excruciatingly close to repeating, leading to Dumars becoming irrationally impatient, losing his touch, and eventually trading his team’s leader and floor general for pennies on the dollar - and it sent them falling down a pit of despair of terrible hires, trades, signings, draft picks, even a mutiny against a head coach ... until they were nothing but unidentifiable rubble.

The Detroit Red Wings put together a dynasty that was on the verge of winning five Stanley Cups in 13 years. Through incredible drafting, timely trades, and contract wizardry by their GM, they had created a team that made 25-straight playoffs without ever needing to take time off to rebuild. And then it changed. The guys they leaned on to excel into their late 30s and early 40s began retiring. Their replacements began retiring. The free agents Detroit brought in to fill the void started signing elsewhere. The second-tier guys Detroit signed in their place didn’t produce. And the contracts given to them added up and prevented a youth movement from spreading its wings. The front office failed to catch on to a demise already underway and instead believed if they kept the streak alive and made the playoffs, then anything could happen. But finally, in 2017, they missed the postseason and began doing so in dramatic fashion. There’s finally hope with an old face for a new GM, but Holland put the team in enough cap hell it won’t be a quick recovery.

Barry Bonds and Jeff Kent were never going to get along. Bonds was self-centered, standoffish, and unwilling to conform to norms (or rules) to achieve his legendary accomplishments. Kent took himself and the traditions of baseball extremely seriously, even if it rubbed people the wrong way. When they became teammates as Giants, everyone figured there would be blow-ups, and they were right: They battled in the clubhouse, on the field, on a bus during spring training, and in the dugout in full view of TV cameras. In spite of it all, they had great success together, even reaching a World Series. This episode of BEEF HISTORY covers the fraught Bonds-Kent relationship, the success in spite of that, and the differing reputations of these two men who, despite appearances, had some very important things in common.

Brett Hull’s controversial triple-overtime goal for the 1999 Stanley Cup deserves a deep rewind

In game six of the 1999 Stanley Cup Finals, the Buffalo Sabres hosted the Dallas Stars and no one was aware how long of a night they were in for, or how controversial the finish would be. Both sides were seeking their franchise's first Stanley Cup. Both sides had one of the league's best goaltenders in their net. But only one side had Brett Hull. He was the final piece in a massive makeover the Stars had gone through since their arrival in Dallas a few seasons earlier. Along with Mike Modano, Jere Lehtinen, and Joe Nieuwendyk, Hull was in good company when it came to scoring goals. But tonight, and this whole series, it was tougher sledding thanks to Dominik Hasek. That isn't to say it was all smooth sailing for the Dominator; Hasek just wouldn't be rattled regardless of the weapons he faced. Outside of game two, he was giving up less than two goals per game. The trouble was his offense faced just as tough of a test when trying to get pucks past Belfour. So in triple-overtime, still tied at 1-1, Hull gave us a moment in history that is still held onto by both franchises - just for polar opposite reasons.

In 1999, the St. Louis Rams had a Cinderella run beyond anyone’s wildest dreams. An undrafted quarterback named Kurt Warner, a few years removed from working the graveyard shift in a grocery store, all of a sudden becoming an NFL starting quarterback for a 4-12 team, immediately putting together one of the best seasons of all time, and winning league MVP en route to a Super Bowl title? You would’ve been laughed out of Hollywood if you pitched that as a movie script. But it somehow became reality, and for that year and the two that followed, the Rams had constructed a juggernaut that ran laps around the rest of the league. But then everything went sideways - they couldn’t stay healthy at the most important position in sports, dirty laundry was aired in a very public manner on the radio, their coach and front office grew to resent one another, and so much more caused an unstoppable force to all of a sudden become the NFL’s piñata.

It’s December 9th, 2004, in Houston, Texas. Less than a third of the way through the regular season, the surging 16-4 Spurs are taking on the middling 8-11 Rockets. San Antonio is inbounding the ball up 2 points with 11.2 seconds left. But just a half-minute ago the Spurs were in full control up eight points. We’re used to this Spurs team. Gregg Popovich and Tim Duncan continue to show why this team is a favorite to win their second championship in three years. Their opponents on the other hand verge on unrecognizable. A new arena, new jerseys, and a new look roster haven’t hidden the blemishes of this Rockets team. But with Yao Ming and Tracy McGrady, if nothing else, they’ve been very exciting and are looking to add themselves to the list of threats in the conference. So how did we get to this point so quickly: a team known for their stingy defense squandered an overwhelming lead?

When the game's best player and best coach leave you in the same offseason, the only way to go is down. Fast. In 1998, the Chicago Bulls won yet another championship: an incredible SECOND three-peat for the team built by Jerry Krause, coached by Phil Jackson, and led by Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen. But for all their glory, the team was in disarray. When the deeply disgruntled Jackson left town, Jordan followed him, and Krause was left to pick up the pieces. ... and by "pick up the pieces," we mean swiftly hurl all the pieces into the abyss and start rebuilding from scratch. But rebuilding, it turns out, isn't always easy. This is the story of how the Bulls followed one of the NBA's most impressive peaks with a valley just as impressive in its steepness and depth.

David Beckham’s last-second free kick against Greece deserves a deep rewind
David Beckham’s last-second free kick against Greece deserves a deep rewind
8 months ago
It’s October 6th, 2001. We’re at Old Trafford in Manchester, England. Greece leads the Three Lions two-to-one in the 93rd minute, and has the opportunity to keep England from qualifying for the 2002 World Cup. With David Beckham lining up for a free kick, the English National Team is looking for a miracle in the closing seconds. Make it and Beckham becomes a national hero just four years after effigies of the captain burned in the streets of England following the 1998 World Cup. Miss it and the British get to add a new chapter to their history of national team disappointment. But how’d we get here? How’d England put themselves in position for possibly yet another heartbreak on a national level? How has a Greek team with nothing to play for nearly pulled this off? Before we get to a moment that will define English football - either through success or failure - we need to rewind.

Antonio Brown's beef with Ben Roethlisberger was heated, sudden, and so avoidable
Antonio Brown's beef with Ben Roethlisberger was heated, sudden, and so avoidable
8 months ago
For more Pennsylvania-based quarterback-wide receiver beef, check out the episode starring Donovan McNabb and Terrell Owens usa-video.net/82xjbERv9TQ-video.html Things between Antonio Brown and Ben Roethlisberger seemed fine. They had a connection envied by the rest of the league as Brown had the best four-year stretch by a wide receiver in the history of the NFL. The Pittsburgh Steelers were rolling as a result and always felt like a threat in the AFC, especially when considering Roethlisberger already having a pair of Super Bowl victories to his name. But early in 2017, the cracks began to show. After the quarterback failed to notice a wide-open Brown during a game against the Ravens, the receiver took his frustrations out on a water cooler. Instead of keeping things behind closed doors, Roethlisberger expressed his thoughts about the sideline outburst on the radio for all to hear. This would become a theme in their beef, as Pittsburgh’s signal-caller had used the tactic with other wide receivers, and would continue to voice his Brown-related opinions on 93.7 The Fan. It would become apparent that there weren’t many of his teammates that approved of this tactic, but the Steelers coaches and front office didn’t seem to mind. That only exacerbated the issues, and while Big Ben took to the radio, Brown took to Twitter to make himself known. With so much being aired out in the open, the speculation from the media grew and the players were peppered with questions about their relationship. They did their best to play nice, but by the end of 2018, it had snowballed into something that couldn’t be hidden. Brown was benched for their final game of the season after a spat at practice. It went off the rails from there in a way that all but guarantees we haven’t heard the end of it.

How to set a record in a game that doesn't exist | Weird Rules
8 months ago
The Edmonton Oilers and Wayne Gretzky have the Boston Bruins on the brink of elimination. It would be the Oilers fourth Stanley Cup in five years, and they’ve just tied the game at three apiece with a little over a period to play. And then the power goes out. As it turns out, you kind of need that to play a hockey game - especially if you want to broadcast it. And considering this is potentially the final game of the NHL season, they definitely wanted to broadcast it. Like most things in sports, timing is everything. This happened in May, which meant it was warmer out than ice usually likes and fog was already an issue while they still had power. So when there was a power outage at the Garden, as well as the surrounding blocks, the league wasn’t too sure when they’d be able to pick the game back up. It became even more of an issue because the Celtics had to play a playoff game of their own in the coming days. So instead of finding a neutral site, the NHL just did the thing that made most sense to them and their constitution - they pretended like game four wasn’t a thing, and moved straight on to game five in Edmonton.

Chris Webber’s ongoing beef with Jalen Rose has kept Michigan’s legendary “Fab Five” from reuniting
Chris Webber’s ongoing beef with Jalen Rose has kept Michigan’s legendary “Fab Five” from reuniting
8 months ago
Chris Webber and Jalen Rose were recruiting rivals growing up in Detroit, but that didn't stop them from being close friends. They were so close, in fact, that Rose followed Webber to the University of Michigan, joining a legendary 1991 recruiting class that came to be known as "The Fab Five." Those five guys revolutionized college basketball and won a whole lot of games, but lost both their trips to the NCAA Final. The second of those losses came after Webber's infamous timeout call. And all those wins? They've been vacated because of a sprawling scandal that included a booster, a gambling ring, and payouts to a number of Wolverines players, including Webber. So the "Fab Five" legacy is complicated, in large part because of Webber's mistakes. And that fact has fueled decades of beef between the former best friends. Webber has come across as sensitive and standoffish about his past, while Rose has perhaps been too aggressive in pushing Webber to apologize for his past. This beef between them has showed in TV programs, documentaries, and books, and it's only gotten worse. This episode of Beef History tells the tale of a friendship turned feud, with the hope that airing things out might help put the "Fab Five" and their legacy back where they ought to be: together, and prominent in Michigan history.

An NBA player once played for both teams in the same game. We can explain. | Weird Rules

When the 76ers and Nets played in 1978, it felt like any other game. But after referee Richie Powers started giving out technicals to everyone in sight, it went off the rails. Ok, maybe that's a slight exaggeration. BUT! He did hit someone with three technicals, which led to the coach protesting and getting hit with three techs as well. Since you can't do that, the Nets took offense and protested the result of the game. It was successful, and the end of the game would be replayed. The trouble was, it wouldn't be for another four months, and in that time these teams combined for a trade. Thanks to that, Eric Money played for both teams and helped create one of the weirdest box scores in NBA history. (As mc88dx pointed out in the comments, Ralph Simpson and Harvey Catchings, who were a part of the same trade, also had minutes in both games, and I should have clarified that Eric Money was the only player to record *baskets* for two teams in one box score. Thanks for catching! -Ryan) Written and produced by Ryan Simmons and Seth Rosenthal Shot and edited by Joe Ali and Jiazhen Zhang Animations and graphics by Philip Pasternak Subscribe: goo.gl/Nbabae Check out our full video catalog: goo.gl/9pMHRV Visit our playlists: goo.gl/NvpZFF Like SB Nation on Facebook: goo.gl/Pzcs7O Follow on Twitter: goo.gl/5LI02D Follow on Instagram: goo.gl/aY2FFK Explore SB Nation: www.sbnation.com

When Jose Fernandez passed away unexpectedly, the Marlins and all of MLB were stunned. Ahead of their next game, Miami did all they could to honor their pitcher throughout the night, but Dee Gordon's leadoff at-bat was the most memorable.

The 2001 Philadelphia 76ers were doomed. They were a very good team with league MVP Allen Iverson as their leader, but their Finals opponent, the Los Angeles Lakers, was a multi-championship powerhouse in the middle of of a historically dominant playoff run. But just for a moment, the Sixers gave the Lakers a scare. Despite Shaquille O'Neal's dominant performance, Game 1 in LA went to overtime, and with time winding down, Iverson faced down Laker backup Tyronn Lue with a chance to put the Sixers up 4 and all but cement the upset victory. This episode of REWINDER takes you into that moment -- one of the most iconic in NBA history -- and explains just how incredible, just how unlikely it was, thanks to the Sixers' recent history of big trades, big almost-trades, and innumerable injuries throughout a grueling playoff run.

When the NY Giants beat the Patriots for their second Super Bowl in five years, it felt like they were in a position to win in any situation. They weren't the best, but they knew when to turn it on. But before we knew it, everything fell apart. Plagued by injuries and salary cap hell, the Giants did all they could to stay afloat. They brought in some shiny new toys like Odell Beckham Jr., David Wilson and Landon Collins, in hopes of rejuvenating what was left of their Super Bowl core. When that didn't work, they jettisoned the last of the old and used free agency to bring in some fresh blood. It worked, but only for a season, and they soon returned to the decline that - at this moment - has no end in sight.

I, for one, am sick of numbers and how dang big they get. For that reason, I give endless thanks to the NCAA and their rule about basketball jersey numbers. By restricting numbers to digits you can count with five fingers, my life has been simplified and I am sleeping better. They didn't even waver when the NBA solved the issue! They just kept saying "Zero to five only." Sure, maybe they don't "remember" when this rule became into existence because it isn't a "big deal." But the important part is making sure players have limited options and therefore can't pick a number that would help them become an individual. Reuse, reduce, recycle numbers in college basketball.

Duke is leading Butler by two in the closing seconds of the National Championship. The Bulldogs have no timeouts but they still have one final chance at upsetting Coach K’s Blue Devils. With the ball in Gordon Hayward's hands, there was just enough time to get off a prayer that would quickly overshadow what led us to this point. March Madness turns the unknown into household names and the latest on that list - Hayward, Brad Stevens, Matt Howard - were looking to take it a step further and win it all. But they weren't the only ones feeling the pressure. Kyle Singler, Jon Scheyer, and Nolan Smith had yet to live up to Coach K's standard while at Duke. They've had incredibly productive careers, and yet this was the first year making it past the Sweet Sixteen. As soon as each team won in the Final Four, we knew there was a chance of something special, but never imagined an ending like this.

The search for the saddest punt in the world | Chart Party
The search for the saddest punt in the world | Chart Party
9 months ago
To punt is to give up, and in the 21st century, NFL teams have given up nearly 50,000 times. Most of those punts were reasonable decisions. But a few were so cowardly, and in such defiance of all reason, that they must not be forgotten. In this episode of Chart Party, it’s our mission to find them. CORRECTIONS: 3:43 - I misread this line. The rule was changed prior to the 2016 season. 6:08 - Fig. 2 lists 46,290 punts as opposed to the 46,377 punts claimed by the original chart -- a discrepancy of 87. The higher number was found through the Pro-Football-Reference.com Play Index, which is highly accurate but not completely perfect -- for example, it classified a few plays as punts that were actually passes. I manually removed as many as I could find, especially the outliers, but there are still a few hiding in there. The lower number was found by the listed NFL season totals. Since I also found the touchdowns, field goals, et al. in this manner, I decided to leave the punts total intact so as to keep the ratio consistent. 8:39 - Specifically at the opponent’s 25-yard line, you’ll notice that there’s a significant decline in the green “go for it” total. This data was found through Pro-Football-Reference’s Game Play Finder. Since this tool only returns 500 plays at a time, I had to pull the 46,000-plus punts through a series of smaller searches. This gave me just 39 “go for it”s at the opponent’s 25; however, if I ran the search in a different sequence, it gave me a more expected total of 111. For reasons I can’t explain, this discrepancy only shows up exactly at the opponent’s 25. Rather than patching in this total, I decided to leave the chart as is so as to preserve its consistency, but the actual total is likely closer to 111 than 39. The Game Play Finder is like an F1 car: it’s very powerful, but it has to be handled very carefully. 9:45 - This was Hekker’s gross punting average. I probably should have used his net punting average instead, which is closer to 40 than 45.8. 10:50 - A bit of a miscalculation on my part. In the 21st century overtimes have occurred once every 539 games, not once every 483 games. 12:00 - We believe there’s an error in the play-by-play report. This play likely occurred near the beginning of the fourth quarter, not the end of the third. 31:01 - The third Dolphins drive is slightly misplaced; it’s a few yards off from where it should be. 36:07 - These two field goal attempts are shown in the wrong order. The Steelers’ attempt should be on the left side of the screen, and the Falcons’ on the right. 36:19 - This chart title should read, “with five or fewer seconds left in the half or game.” Plays at the end of the second quarter were included in this sample. Additionally, hail marys as defined here are even more rare than I claimed: four plays found their way into the sample that were actually turnovers that resulted in touchdowns in the other direction. Hail mary touchdowns are actually 12-for-780 in this sample, not 16-for-780. 39:08 - I misspoke. These two punts came on fourth and 11, not fourth and 13. 40:31 - I can't believe I did this. The Bills are not Buffalo's only major pro sports team. I forgot about the NHL's own Buffalo Sabres. Sincere apologies.

The NBA always has enough shooting talent to stock a solid 3-Point Contest, but sometimes things just don't line up right. In 2000, great shooters like Jeff Hornacek, Ray Allen, and Dirk Nowitzki underperformed, and some other shooters shouldn't have been there in the first place. Allen Iverson may or may not have had a thumb that was still broken. On the night of one of the best dunk contests ever, the 2000 3-Point Contest was the WORST.

Peyton Manning and his “idiot kicker” had a brief beef, but the football world never let it die
Peyton Manning and his “idiot kicker” had a brief beef, but the football world never let it die
10 months ago
Throughout his long and accomplished career, Peyton Manning was smart enough to avoid saying things to the media that would rile up his opponents or come back to bite him. Except the one time, in the middle of the 2003 Pro Bowl, he trashed his "idiot kicker" Mike Vanderjagt, because Mike had trashed him and Tony Dungy a few days earlier. Everyone said they were sorry, but that brief feud created a narrative that never really went away, even after Vanderjagt left Indianapolis.

Vince Carter’s iconic Dunk Contest deserves a deep rewind | 2000 NBA Slam Dunk Contest
10 months ago
You may know about Vince Carter's incredible performance at the 2000 NBA Slam Dunk Contest, but do you know how crucial that night was to the future of a struggling event? Do you know what was going on with Carter's Raptors and fellow contest participant Tracy McGrady at the time? Take a deep rewind to find out the history that made this night so important, and a fascinating snapshot of some changing tides in the league as a whole.

The only XFL championship was also the worst
The only XFL championship was also the worst
10 months ago
The XFL Million Dollar Game was so bad that they never played again. Well, the league got cancelled for other reasons, but the point stands. Rarely did it actually resemble football. Anything "good" was thanks to something far worse. And honestly, it's what the XFL deserved. A poorly thought out, unnecessarily reckless league pitted the Los Angeles Xtreme against the San Francisco Demons. It quickly became clear these teams didn't belong on the same field, and was over as soon as it started. Thankfully, they played the whole 60 minutes so I could watch that for you and paint a picture of how terrible it was.

I guess this video makes it official----sports fans genuinely believe (despite the NFL's very public 100th anniversary) that nothing in pro football that happened before the 1967 season when the first Super Bowl was played counts. It really isn't that hard to fact check, guys. Let's just say that as a Washington Red[acted] fan, I sincerely WISH that 59-0 game was the worst NFL blowout ever. December 8, 1940---a date that will live in INFAMY---the Chicago Bears beat my team 73-0 to win the NFL championship.

You forgot about the video game world. In my NCAA March Madness 06 Cal State Fullerton franchise, my star player is point guard Bob Small. He is on a streak of 50 point triple doubles but the NCAA is trying as hard as possible to make sure he doesn't win player of the year or DPOY. And FYI, the third trip-dub stat he is averaging is steals, not rebounds.

I can see the logic there... While I probably would have gone for it, I dont think the choice was that bad. Its a low scoring game, Gabbart isnt moving the ball. You get FG to go down by 1, you have 3 minutes to stop them (dont even need a 3 and out) and you pick up a few yards against prevent defense and kick another FG... Had this been 2 minutes left then yea, terrible... but I can see the logic here.

The illegal touching(or first touching) rule on punts. Basically means if the punting team touches the ball first(it normally gets downed there) but if the receiving team can get to the ball, they can do whatever they want with it.. field it, lateral it, return it for a td. Even if they end up fumbling the ball, it will just end up being spotted were the kicking team originally touched(downed) it. I think I saw a rams player return a TD doing this in the 90s. and in recent years saw a titan try making a play on a ball that the texans punted and threw back in play to try saving it from being a touchback. If you don't know the rule it looks stupid and risky, but if you do know the rule, its essentially a free play to try something wild as a receiving team.

The way he uses his body movement and small fakes to tear open the defense is FN ridiculous. He’s not trying to beat the guy in front of him. That guy is already beat, it just hasn’t happened yet. Ben Simmons is looking past his guy and making the other defenders move around. He’s the puppet master. I watched him for five minutes and could tell he’s playing a different game. Chris Paul wrecks defenses with that same type of court vision. (Used to anyway. ).

I've watched this like three times. It's hilarious. It's absurd and fantastic. It's intensity kind of sucks you in... It's self-aware but sincere in it's devotion to something silly that is actually significant in it's departure from the norm. That the culmination of millions of games of basketball created this formula that we've all come to know, and yet this aberration of a game is somehow unique and momentous... a monument to hilarity and absurdity. A perfect storm of insignificant one-offs borne out to their greatest lengths and so becoming an unbeatable record... until, godforbid, a more absurd day comes to be.
