The Lost Member Of The Fab Five?

HANG TIME HEADQUARTERS – The Fab 6?

It almost happened, if you let my main man Brent Barry of NBA TV and The Jump tell the story:

Brent’s Best of Five: Sager vs Frazier

HANG TIME HEADQUARTERS — NBA TV’s Brent Barry has cooked up some pretty hilarious Best of Five‘s this season on The Jump, but he outdid himself with today’s fashion forward delivery pitting TNT’s Craig Sager against legendary Knicks announcer and former star Walt “Clyde” Frazier.

Watch for yourself and then you can crown your own winner:

Beats By Bones

HANG TIME HEADQUARTERS – Forget T-Pain and Kanye West.

Nobody rocks Auto-Tune like my main man Brent “Bones” Barry. Check out his latest track, seen first today on The Jump:

Top Dunks … So Far?

HANG TIME HEADQUARTERS – Unlike the people handing out that two-ton college football trophy this weekend in New York, you don’t have to wait for an entire season to play out to find out who sits where in the pecking order for the top dunks in the NBA.

Our main man and NBA.com’s very own LeMont Calloway is taking care of us on that front with the NBA.com Dunk Ladder. Much like its cousins for Rookies and Top Plays, the Dunk Ladder provides us with a constantly updated chart ranking the best dunks throughout the this season.

All you have to do is check the Dunk Ladder to see where the best dunks you’ve seen rank among the best of the best. In honor of a November full of wicked dunks, we’ll celebrate the best dunks of the season (so far) with Hall of Famer and slam dunk legend Dominique Wilkins on The Jump today at 1 p.m. on NBA.com.

In the meantime, feel free to cast your vote on the current jaw-droppers on the NBA.com Dunk Ladder:

About Last Night: Hornets Stung

HANG TIME HEADQUARTERS – Sorry New Orleans, we know you hate to turn on the lights at a party but that hot start wasn’t going to last forever.

It’s official, no one is going to run the table in the NBA this season.

The Dallas Mavericks made sure of that Monday night when they knocked off the Hornets at home with a late rally.

The Jazz saw their hot streak come to an end, on their home floor of all places, last night as well. But that’s what happens when you invite Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook and the Thunder to dinner after a long road trip. (more…)

Paul Brogan’s Return

HANG TIME HEADQUARTERS – The season finale of The Jump went down earlier today.

And the entire crew (Dennis Scott, Brent Barry, Kyle Montgomery and myself) made sure to go out with a bang.

That meant catching up with our old friend, hip-hop correspondent and best freestyle rapper alive Paul Brogan:

It’s a sad day, seeing Fan Night and The Jump come to an end at the same time.

But that only means we’re that much closer to the playoffs.

NBA Bracketology (Jump Style)

HANG TIME HEADQUARTERS – Leave it up to the crew from The Jump (your host is included) to come up with our twist on March Madness, for the NBA.

We filled out and finished our bracket for the NBA’s one-and-done postseason tournament, courtesy of Dennis Scott, Brent Barry, Kyle Montgomery and myself.

Check it out and see if you agree with our picks in each region:

The South

The Midwest

The East

The West

And the Final Four

We did agree on two things after all of this bracket work.

First, it’ll never happen. Never. There’s just no way you could convince season ticket holders that they have to find their way to a neutral site venue and watch a team they’ve paid big bucks to see all season. Besides, the NBA would need one of those billion dollar TV deals to fork over all the playoff revenue you get for hosting postseason games.

But we also realize that this any one-and-done format featuring NBA teams would instantly become a sporting spectacle rivaled only by the Super Bowl. Think about it, the Lakers and Cavaliers in a one-game showdown for it all on a neutral floor (we all voted for Vegas for the Final Four). Kobe Bryant and LeBron James going toe-to-toe for the big trophy and there is no stumble in Game 2 that you can make up for in Game 3 … this could produce unrivaled drama and intrigue for the game of basketball.

We know, it’s fantasy land. But tell me you wouldn’t want to watch?
