Viral Video Breakdown: LeBron James, World Series and More Hot Sports Clips

1 of 15

    LeBron James dropped a sweet move to spice up the preseason, the World Series has provided some great, wacky moments and we have a splendid breakdown of videos. 

    As with every week, there were some amazing moments taking place on the fringe of sports that we just can't get enough of. 

    That's why we round them up and provide them on a nice platter. 

    We had LeBron James provide some preseason wackiness, a bird taking exception to a World Series report and so many more videos to keep us all giggling until the next installment. 

    As always, if you feel there was a video that really should have made it on the list, sound off in the section below. 

    Otherwise, join me as we plunge into another magical week of viral videos. 

JJ Watt Is a Big Burrito Eater

2 of 15

    During the Texans and Ravens game, Ray Rice gave JJ Watt a little shove after the play. It resulted in the best soundbite of the week. 

    Watt warns, simply and hilariously, he has eaten bigger burritos than the diminutive Rice.

High School Flip out

3 of 15

    Sadly, there is very little information on this video, seen over at Deadspin, but that doesn't make it any less remarkable. 

    Here is a running back getting rather creative in getting around the defense.

    He chooses to go over them.

Tennis Shot of the Year

4 of 15

    That's it, we can all go home. This was pretty much the best tennis shot we have ever seen. 

    It takes place in a first-round match between Grigor Dimitrov and Viktor Troicki in Basel, Switzerland, a match Dimitrov would eventually win 6-3, 6-2. 

    He is also the man who goes behind his back like Magic Johnson and drops a winner near the line.

LeBron James Gets Sick with It

5 of 15

    The preseason is a time for preparation, but it can also be a time of great showmanship. 

    During the Heat's game against the Washington Wizards, star LeBron James decides to fake out the entire arena with this crazy move. 

    If only he could have finished it with a hammer of a dunk.

Yao Ming and His Adorable Golf Swing

6 of 15

    Former NBA star Yao Ming was at the Mission Hills World Celebrity Pro-Am at Haikou, China, and we are so happy he was. 

    He proved, as we all have, that a chip shot is never that easy.

Lob City Returns

7 of 15

    The NBA season is near, which means there is bound to be a great deal more lobs and dunks like this one. 

    Chris Paul finds a cutting DeAndre Jordan who throws it down with authority. It seems the Warriors are good for something.

Anchor Doused in Bird Poop

8 of 15

    The World Series has been unkind to the Detroit Tigers so far, but fate also took a sour turn on a Sacramento news anchor covering the event. 

    Here is Paul Robins of FOX40 talking outside AT&T Park, only to get pooped on during a live recording. Hilarity, of course, ensues.

Technical Foul Controversy

9 of 15

    This is one that will make you amped to see the usual horrible calls the NBA has to offer. 

    James drives to the bucket and is called for a technical foul we still haven't figured out quite yet. Any self-respecting fan will look at this and shrug, because we have seen worse.

Shaq Dunks on Dwight Howard, Verbally

10 of 15

    The big man who had tremendous beef with Kobe Bryant for years has a new rival.

    Here is Shaquille O'Neal dominating D12 in rhyme. 

    If we know anything about Shaq rivalries, this is not the last we will hear about it.

    We look forward to the next rap freestyle aimed at the new Superman.

Mani Love Takes on Terrell Owens

11 of 15

    Little person Mani Love left the blacktop for the hardwood to take on TO in a game of one-on-one. 

    Despite some sharpshooting from the former NFL player, the street baller took him down. Love's chances of playing receiver in the NFL are now better than Owens'.

Matt Cain Destroys Inanimate Objects

12 of 15

    Matt Cain teamed up with MythBusters Kari Byron and Tory Belleci that is either very fake or real. We have decided we don't care.

    A deep-dish pizza was destroyed. 

    A pinata and watermelon join the cast of characters that were completely annihilated by the simple toss from the Giants' ace Cain.

Jeff Van Gundy Is Missing His Glasses

13 of 15

    The NBA on ESPN have some funny commercials, and this may be one of their best. 

    Jeff Van Gundy and Russell Westbrook switch glasses, causing them to drive through a cornfield, just one of the many downsides to no-lens hipster glasses.

Roy Hibbert Goes 'Gangnam Style'

14 of 15

    We have to stress that we are very much over the "Gangnam Style" craze, but this one event may be the exception. 

    The Pacers Roy Hibbert makes fans smile at the "Meet The Rookies" event at Circle Centre Mall in Indianapolis. A flash mob breaks out, and then so does the big man, who shows off his moves.

Feel-Good Story from 2012 World Series

15 of 15

    This is just a great story. So good, we have to end on it. 

    Kyle is a man so well respected by his friends, and such a hard worker that his pals chipped in on a ticket for Game 1 to the World Series. 

    The super Giants fan works over 35 hours a week while taking 21 units at UC Davis. Seriously, it's okay to cry for this one.
