Oklahoma all-star game brings out the best

Once again the NBA‘s best come together for a charity game. This time the venue is Oklahoma City, Okla., home of the Oklahoma City Thunder.  Kevin Durant is definitely the hometown hero in this event, but he had to share the spotlight with stars such as LeBron James, Chris Paul and teammates James Harden and Russell Westbrook.

There were many highlights from this game. The game had everything from former Thunder member Jeff Green‘s power dunks to the smooth crosses and passes of New Orleans Hornets star Chris Paul. With the lockout still in full effect and no end in sight, the players show they haven’t lost a step.

How do you feel about this game? Did the fans get their donations’ worth?

Basketball meets the pool

Just when you thought it couldn’t get any more creative than Dude Perfect, kids bring their creativeness to a whole new level. Four kids playing in the backyard videoed themselves playing in their pool with only a small basketball rim and a Nerf ball. The best ideas come by having fun and relaxing.

There isn’t much more to say about this. All I can do is let you see what I mean for yourself.

If that wasn’t enough, there’s more:

What do you think of the innovation of these kids?

Dude Perfect goes big

If you grew up loving basketball and were like me, you would invariably toss up trick shots while playing around with your friends. You couldn’t perform them in a real game, but they showed off your marksmanship. The shots could be from half-court, sitting down at the 3-point line, or even from somewhere way out of bounds.

Similar to that, a group of guys from Texas A&M created what they call Dude Perfect. According to the team of accurate shooters/throwers, “A free sandwich, a simple camera, and 20 ‘I can do better than you’ shots later, Dude Perfect was born.” It started as a game but grew into something much larger. What started as a fun YouTube video turned into a movement for people to “Go Big.” Now having over 5 million views to their first video ever, Dude Perfect has turned into a new sensation and continues to leave people in awe with their crazy shots.

These guys definitely went big, especially after breaking the record for the world’s longest shot made.

Missed it? Here it is:

As a bonus, you can see that Dude Perfect can take their antics anywhere:
