With the Golden State Warriors surging, Milwaukee Bucks forward Jabari Parker proved he had ice in his veins with an emphatic dunk to stop a run.

He went right on his defender and finished with a nasty reverse slam.

Parker finished with 20 points to lead the Bucks to a 79-74 win on Friday.

Even in a friendly game of HORSE, Kobe Bryant is a fierce competitor.

The challenger may have given Bryant a couple of early letters, but the Black Mamba turned up his game in a hurry. When his competitor messed up badly, the Los Angeles Lakers superstar gave him the business—and then showed him how it's done.

In the end, Bryant's creative shots were too much for his opponent to overcome. Warning: Video may contain NSFW language.

On the plus side, the challenger gave Bryant a couple of letters and got an autograph. That's respectable.

Now here's something you don't see every day.

New Orleans Saints defensive coordinator Rob Ryan was spotted at an airport walking around with three boxes, which appear to be pizzas, in his hand. That part isn't too odd, but when you throw in the stuffed animal he is also carrying, you get a very bizarre picture.

Although the tweeter is correct in saying that context isn't necessary, it would certainly help clarify what was going on in the picture.

Michael Jordan went through his legendary NBA career as one of the most ruthless competitors the sport has ever seen. He'd respond to every slight, try to win each challenge and desire to thoroughly embarrass an opponent, not just beat him. 

Is it any surprise he likes Lance Stephenson's competitiveness? 

"He told me what he likes about me, he told me what I need to calm down on," the dynamic 2-guard told Rick Bonnell of The Charlotte Observer about Jordan's communication with him. "He told me how I can contribute to the team. And he told me he believed in my talent. He likes my competitive edge."


The 2014 British Open is taking place this weekend, so ESPN thought this would be the perfect opportunity to see how much PGA golfers knew about arguably the most popular band ever.

Rory McIlroy, Bubba Watson and other golfers did their best to name all four members of The Beatles. Some were able to name the fourth member, but others, like McIlroy, struggled mightily.

Naming all four members of The Beatles may seem like a simple task , but sometimes, it's tough to think on the spot.

Major League Baseball's All-Star festivities are a lot of fun for both the players and the fans. This year, David Letterman's Intern Todd made the experience for the players even better.

From asking silly questions to playing toss with the Oakland Athletics' Josh Donaldson to giving Derek Jeter a retirement present, Intern Todd made sure the mood was light. He even got to chill with Tampa Bay Rays ace David Price at the Mall of America.

Thankfully, all of the All-Stars were more than willing to go along with the bit.

When you think of surfing, you probably envision the coast of California or the lush beaches of Hawaii. The Arctic Circle most likely never crosses your mind.

Professional surfers Patrick Millin, Brett Barley and Chadd Konig took their boards up to the Arctic Circle for an incredible experience. Between the water and the wind, the surfers had to battle sub-zero temperatures.

You have to give photographer Chris Burkard—and the camera crew—credit as well for braving the bitter cold in order to capture some breathtaking shots.

Arkansas coach Bret Bielema may have given us the best sports quote of the year during a media session Wednesday. 

When talking about freshman defensive tackle Bijhon Jackson, Bielema had nothing but good things to say about the player—or at least his body. The Razorbacks coach's quote definitely makes for an awesome Vine.

Arkansas players should be able to have some fun with both Bielema and Jackson about that fantastic quote.

Flavor Flav is a man about town and national treasure, but we have to ask: Why does he have so many keys?

The Public Enemy head figure turned up in Las Vegas this week to take in an NBA Summer League game between the D-League Select and New York Knicks.

Having worn his most understated clock, Flav nearly made it through the broadcast anonymously. What caught everyone’s attention, however, was the enormous collection of keys Flav held in his lap.

@CJ_Zero captured video of the commentators ogling the pounds of metal the rapper had on his person. Sportscaster Walt “Clyde” Frazier noted that Flav looked like a capable cat burglar with all those keys.
