I’m not one for long goodbyes, but as previously mentioned in our last show, TBJ and theScore are going in separate directions, meaning this post marks the end of our tenure here.
Thank you to theScore for the opportunity to make something that shows just how much fun the NBA can be. And thank you most of all to anyone who’s listened, watched, read, commented, emailed or in any other way been even a small part of TBJ over...
Ever since I moved to Canada, I’ve become fascinated with the UFC to the point where I’m watching all the events and can usually distinguish one guy’s tattoos from another. It’s fun, and when I realized that last night’s UFC Fight Night was in Indianapolis, I said, “Roy Hibbert should be there. He loves MMA.” Lo and behold, there he is, the huge guy in the plaid shirt who keeps messing with his phone in the background of the Takeya...
In the summer of 2013, Kevin Garnett and Metta World Peace both made their way to New York basketball teams. What happened next is a story fit for the funny pages. Now thanks to illustrator Brad Beatson, we get a look at Kevin & Metta’s New York Adventures. Previously, 30 seconds in the mind of Metta.
J.R. Smith: Way to arrive at the 11th Hora, guys. Kevin: … I thought we were heading to a club? Metta: This...
I know that sounds like a hyper-specific Onion headline, but listen to this zinger from the 1:45 mark of Juicy J’s “Bounce It,” which features both Wale and Trey Songz (no relation):
Bald-headed scallywags, real n—-s salute me Catch me at that Memphis game, seats saved by Rudy
We all know Wale and Rudy Gay are bros from back in the D.C. area. And we also all know that Rudy Gay is no longer on the Memphis Grizzlies, which means...
50 years ago this afternoon, perhaps America’s most recognizable speech and march took place in Washington, D.C. Dr. Martin Luther King’s “I Have A Dream Speech” may or may not have been his finest oratory ever — his impassioned, yet physically taxing “mountaintop” speech given the day before his assassination hits home with the same intensity and forward thinking — however, what happened...
This one’s for you, Brandon Knight.
Tracy McGrady tweeted those posters you see up there, thanking the most notable stops of his NBA career. It was a very nice thing to do. But he also forgot the other four teams he played for, which is too bad for those cities since they were a part of the Tracy McGrady experience too.
So to make things fair, I whipped up a few Tracy McGrady posters in Photoshop, thanking each of the cities where T-Mac showed up for...
This is actually kind of hard to explain due to the reverse chronological order that Facebook uses, but basically, Harrison Barnes started doing these #hbquest safari hunts on his Facebook page where he’d give vague hints about where he (or one of his crew) was going and what all the Barnesheads out there would need to do to win one of his jerseys. Some girl won a jersey by outscoring Barnes’ career-high in Pop-a-Shot, another guy won a jerseyby...
This is the music video for Wild Ones’ “It’s Real,” and if it’s not the strangest NBA-themed music video you’ll ever see, as the title suggests, then it’s at least the only one you’ve ever seen to feature closeups of both Joel Anthony AND Nenad Krstic. Or at least that’s what I’m guessing. Maybe there’s some backup center-obsessed band out there that I haven’t heard about yet. I doubt it, but it’s possible. Either way, still weird.

Do you mean to tell me that all it takes to get Mike Miller’s always-broken porcelain body is just a few Zumba classes over the summer? Sign me up never!
By internet standards, at age 35, Kobe Bryant is basically a great-grandfather who fought in a minor war you know nothing about. That’s why his latest request is one of the funniest things you’ll see today, in the non-”Breaking Bad”-meets-Miley Cyrus division:
Send me the best vines so I can get a feel of how to use it .Funny, sports, Just no talkin cats or ish like that plz #mambaaintgottime4that

Great job by Lang Whitaker over at NBA.com’s All Ball blog on this video. All he did was ask a simple question to a bunch of rookies — What would your theme song be? — that somehow ended up with him singing a duet of a 25-year-old song with a New Zealander and also a Canadian crooning an R. Kelly song because they share a name. You know, normal stuff.
Not to mention, we finally found somebody who actually really...
Tracy McGrady’s announcement of his retirement from the NBA yesterday closes the last chapter on one of the most tantalizing, exciting, and ultimately unsatisfying careers in recent pro hoops history. He won a couple scoring titles, went to a whole bunch of All-Star games and put up some incredible numbers over the course of his career — incuding a PER of 30.3 for the season in 2002-03, higher than any player not named LeBron James has posted in the 21st...
Michael Jordan has been retired from the game of basketball for more than 10 years, yet the Air Jordan sneaker still sells in record numbers. It helped make Nike the sneaker juggernaut that it is today, and created a cult following beyond belief.
There are people, known as “Jordan Heads”, who have refrained from buying food just so they can buy a pair of Air Jordan’s. Some have stood on a line...
Oh, I get it — Lapdance Tuesday is today, so Make It Rain Monday was last night. The Wizards have more theme days than a high school homecoming week.

I’m kind of scared to see the video when someone breaks the news to Dirk that the Mavericks missed out on Dwight Howard again and that they’ll be starting Monta Ellis next year. “Oh, I guess it’s game day … again … sigh,” just doesn’t have the same ring to it.
Because it’s August and nothing is happening in the NBA, NBATV Canada has been playing a whole bunch of old Chicago Bulls games, which came in handy when my wife flew home for a quick family visit and I was left with a weekend of time to fill. And while I’ve seen such legendary games like Game 1 of the 1992 Finals or Game 6 of the 1998 Finals what feels like a million times, I’m pretty sure I hadn’t...
Tracy McGrady is retiring after 15 NBA seasons, one Chinese Basketball Association season — where McGrady may return in the future — and a pretty sizable “Career highlights and awards” section on Wikipedia. It was a good, slightly sleepy run.
And while many people will remember Tracy for never winning a playoff series when he mattered as a player, his 13 points in 35 secondsor for being Vince Carter’s kinda sorta cousin (but only when they were playing...
I before E, except after C, or when getting a tattoo and putting it on Instagram for everyone to see.

In the summer of 2013, Kevin Garnett and Metta World Peace both made their way to New York basketball teams. What happened next is a story fit for the funny pages. Now thanks to illustrator Brad Beatson, we get a look at Kevin & Metta’s New York Adventures. Previously, the bros go to Andray Blatche’s birthday party.
Zen Master: Metta, come in here. Metta: What’s up, coach? Zen Master: Are you trying to be funny? I’m not going...
There’s pride in accomplishment, but pain in missed opportunities. The artists formerly known as the New Jersey Nets have both.
Head to any location where legit hoops conversations normally take place. The barbershop, where every barber and/or customer is the next coming of Hubie Brown. Or the bar, where the old-school WWF-equivalent to “hell in the cell”-type debates happen. Wherever the location, ask...
Slick animation about a guy who wants to win a medal for his home country in an Olympics that takes place in his home country? Yes, please. This is awesome.
