Per the tweet below from Portland Trailblazers insider Chris Haynes, things are already looking up for this year’s NBA dunk contest at All-Star weekend. The dunk contest is set to take place on Saturday, February 15th in New Orleans.
Trailblazers’ Point Guard Damian Lillard is one of the most-exciting young players in the game and now he’s ready to turn up in the dunk contest. It’s only right that some of the game’s best talents can partake in the high-flying event. Feel free to submit your 4-bar posts to Mr. Lillard (via Instagram) every Friday, if you got bars for the dude.
After undergoing Tommy John surgery in May of 2012, San Diego Padres pitcher Corey Luebke was forced to miss the entire 2013 season. Now, after experiencing a setback while rehabbing, the 28-year-old will be forced to miss the entire 2014 campaign. It’s an extremely unfortunate series of events for the former Ohio State standout, as he figured to have considerable upside pitching a full season in the pitcher-friendly confines of Petco Park.
Luebke inked a four-year, $12 million deal in 2012 that included team options for 2016 and 2017. The left-hander initially suffered the setback in September and was shut down temporarily before returning to the mound a few months later. An MRI confirmed that Luebke had re-torn his ulnar collateral ligament, confirming the need for Luebke to undergo his second Tommy John surgery in the last two years.
Obviously someone forgot to take their medicine…An epic tantrum by Joakim Noah last night is making tidal waves across the internet. It’s no wonder he lost his cool as emotions were running high in a very physical game between the Bulls and Kings. The clip below is what ensued after Noah received his second technical of the night…
This was too good of a scene to just post one image, so I did a little more digging. Will Brinson from CBS Sports posted this tweet shortly after the outburst, that depicts the scene from a previous Noah incident.
Classy broad right there, real classy…
