Tony Parker and Eva Langoria recreate Grease!

OK folks, first of all, this is not a new video, apparently it's a couple of years old, yet still worthwhile. Now I must confess, one of my all-time guilty pleasures is the movie Grease. I've seen Grease more times than any other movie, even more than Menace II Society, Carlito's Way, The Killer or Usual Suspects.

This video was originally removed from the web, but the smart guys over at Fanhouse have it on their site (with no embed code, the bastards!), so you'll have to mosey over there to watch it. Still can't get over that hair, and no this doesn't make me like you guys any more... sorry.

Extreme Makeover: Don't Give Me Any Ideas.

Dustin over @ Undercrown originally posted this pic. It's from the executive bathroom at the Rose Garden, (where the Trailblazers play). I would so get this popping in my bathroom.

...and please, no jokes about 3 point shooting.

A Christmas Carol.

This video gets run every year, it's still a classic. "Jingle Bells" courtesy of Rasheed Wallace, Jason Maxiell, Amir Johnson and Will Blalock.
Enjoy the holidays!

My Christmas Sweater.

To tell you the truth, I'm not the most festive fella. You won't see me getting my Bing Crosby on, however, I will likely be dipping into the egg nog. But the good folks at Undercrown have something in their Holiday 2009 Collection that will definitely get me in the spirit.

The Pick & Roll hoody is only available in red, so take that Santa! The graphic is so fresh and so clean. Of course only the ballers know that this little play is the most surefire way to get 2 points, and really can't be stopped with the myriad of ways it unfolds. See: Stockton and Malone.

I guess I will have to see if I'm naughty or nice if I end up getting my Christmas sweater this year, but come on, what else would I rather be wearing on Dec. 25th when I'm watching Kobe vs Lebron, (I can see the puppet commercials already)?

I Know This Is Old But...

I can only describe this in one word.


The sound Iverson makes when he goes down is like a dead body dropping. Even if you missed the action, you would still turn to the person next to you and ask, "What was that noise? What did I miss?"

Penny For Your Thoughts?

Although my basketball season(s) are well underway I'm pretty stuck on which shoes I'd like to ball in. I always felt the Nike Penny 1/2 Cent was kinda slick when it dropped, and while it's well documented that I'm not a fan of hybrids, (the 1/2 cent is made up from five different Penny sneakers) these work.

While there is no Lil' Penny advertising campaign underway for these, if you're wondering what the real Penny Hardaway is up to now? Well our good man Charles Barkley has already posed the question.

"Where My Dogs @?"

I'm a dog lover, I have a 2 year old Jack Russell named Blue and he's my guy. My love for sneakers almost rivals my love for my dog although sneakers have been in my life much longer. The joke around the house is that Blue is a destroyer, any chew toy put in front of him has a life expectancy of about 8 hours. Yet while he hasn't taken a penchant for chewing on footwear, I wonder what he would do with this?

The folks over at the London design collective Vinti Andrews took the Air Jordan 5 and re crafted it into a canine... none too shabby. Giving new meaning to "walking the dog" this purebred will not heed the words of the Dog Whisperer. Now can someone talk to Jordan Brand about making dog booties for the winter?
Bonus pic of the Air Max Dog.

Thanks to Freshnessmag for the tip.

New York Knicks Fans Are Being Entertained, But Not By The Knicks.

Lawrence Frank gets fired today but really, what did the Nets expect with that roster and all of those injured players? The real coach who should be on the hotseat is Mike D'Antoni. The Knicks are 3-14 with a better roster and healthy bodies, however Knick fans seem to find themselves way more entertained then by watching an actual game. Take a look.
