Paul George Visits Jimmy Kimmel

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — If there was ever any doubt, we can officially put it to rest: Indiana Pacers forward Paul George is having a breakout season. Not only is George one of the best scorers and defenders in the league, but George was recently named an All-Star starter for the first time, and his Pacers have the best record in the NBA. And now, to truly cement his status, George is making the late night TV rounds, as last night he stopped by “Jimmy Kimmel Live” to talk about his 360 dunk, his wardrobe, and what it’s like when Larry Bird is hanging around at practice…

Detroit Dance-Off Resumes On Jimmy Kimmel Live

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — Here at All Ball, we’ve been all over the story of Shannon Sailes, the Dancing Usher at Detroit Pistons games. Most recently, we saw him engage a young fan in something of a dance-off at a game a few weeks back. The clip of that dance-off went viral, enough so that it caught the attention of the crew at “Jimmy Kimmel Live.” So last night, Kimmel brought Sailes and the young fan, Antoine Alexander, to Los Angeles, to allow the dance-off to continue …

NBA Players Read Mean Tweets About Themselves

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — As anyone who has used Twitter can attest, the somewhat anonymous nature the service can provide seems to embolden a specific group of people to say things they would probably never say to your face. Then again, considering the tenor of some of the invective that gets launched, perhaps these are things that these people would say to your face — or at least to my face.

But would you mouth off to Blake Griffin? Kobe? Metta World Peace? Apparently they are not immune to the savages on Twitter either, as we see in this recent NBA-themed segment of “Mean Tweets” from “Jimmy Kimmel Live.”

LeBron Haters Deliver Postmortem On Heat Championship Win

by Micah Hart

By winning his first NBA championship, LeBron James has shut a lot of mouths talking a lot of noise (mine included). Monday night on Jimmy Kimmel Live, some of James’ harshest critics had to face the media and discuss what happened and how they plan to deal with the new reality:



Haters gonna keep hatin’, I suppose.

Mike Tyson Serenades (?) LeBron James

by Micah Hart

With the NBA Finals on ABC, Jimmy Kimmel Live is once again up to its old tricks with a pregame show before each Finals game. Before Tuesday night’s Game 1, a certain former boxer dusted off the singing skills he so deftly showed in The Hangover II to serenade LeBron James, this time with an original composition. Take it away, Mike Tyson:

Amazing performance. I’d buy the single if it were available. Perhaps the best thing I’ve ever heard*.

*What, you think I’m dumb enough to be snarky to Iron Mike? No chance.

Kevin Durant Shines On Jimmy Kimmel

by Micah Hart

I’m not sure if Kevin Durant has appeared on the talk show circuit before, but he seemed incredibly comfortable when he dropped by Jimmy Kimmel Live last night in advance of tonight’s Lakers-Thunder tilt in L.A:

I know I’m a homer, but I feel like Seinfeld’s mom when I say this about Durant: “How could anyone not like him?”

Ron Artest, champion of animal rights, victim of practical joke

by Micah Hart

Any time Ron Artest is involved with Jimmy Kimmel Live, you know something entertaining is going to go down. This time, it’s Kimmel (a notoriously talented prankster) pulling a fast one on Artest, getting the Lakers’ star to film a commercial for animal rights, which steamrolls out of hand in a hurry. Roll it!

Gotta give Artest much respect for keeping his cool in this situation. I was expecting him to go Samuel L. Jackson when the python came out.

Blake Griffin, the latest NBA Superstar to lose to a busboy

by Micah Hart

Yeah, Blake Griffin is the Rookie of the Year, and can hold his own on the comedy scene. But you didn’t really think he could beat “Busboy Ricardo” at pop-a-shot on Jimmy Kimmel Live, did you?

To Griffin’s credit, he comes much closer than some of Ricardo’s past victims, though he did get a little help from the blindfold handicap.

I would love to see a full-scale NBA pop-a-shot competition. Strangely, I think Andrei Kirilenko would be the favorite. He’s got long arms, and his new tattoo would distract the competition.
