R.I.P. Anthony Mason

February 28, 2015 by

Anthony Mason, a 13 year NBA veteran, has died due to complications of congestive heart failure. He spent his career playing for the New York Knicks, Charlotte Hornets, Miami Heat, and Milwaukee Bucks. However, as a man that bleeds orange and blue, I’ll always remember him as being a key cog for the Knicks during many of their playoff runs in the early to mid 90’s.  Read the rest of this entry »



I logged about 8 hours on Dying Light, started over, and logged another 3 hours.  I’m not an expert on the game by any means, but I’ve figured out a few things that made me want to go back and do it “right” the 2nd time around.  If you’ve started the game and are finding it a bit difficult, hopefully there’s something in this article that’ll help you out.  If you have any info of your own that I didn’t cover, drop it in the comments section, I’ll add it, and give you props.

DeAndre Jordan went for immortality tonight.  He failed, but it was still awesome.  In what would have been the greatest slam dunk in the history of basketball (NBA, NCAA, Nerf), Jordan attempted to dunk over the San Antonio Spurs’ Tim Duncan, and when I say dunk over I mean jump over completely a-la Vince Carter over Frederic Weis.  Check out the Vine after the jump:
