Shook Ankles: James Harden Makes Avery Bradley Stumble

January 12, 2013 Leave a comment

In one of the more fascinating individual match-ups you’ll see all season, Avery Bradley (a top 3 on-ball perimeter defender) guarded James Harden (one of the four or five hardest perimeter players to defend in the league) for much of Friday night’s Rockets/Celtics game. For the most part, Bradley stifled Harden better than anybody yet this year. But as we all know, it’s an offensive player’s league. That’s why this happened. Afterwards it was unanimously decided by me that both players are still elite in the area they’re known for being dominant.

This play is the definition of putting a defender on skates.

Shook Ankles: Jamal Crawford Stops The Show

You really can’t describe Jamal Crawford’s handles with words, or read descriptions of his movement on a laptop screen and expect to absorb what he did. I won’t even take a stab at trying. Just watch the clip, and know that until further notice, Crawford is the NBA’s King of the Crossover.

Kevin Durant is great. That’s all. 

(H/T to Daily Thunder’s s Royce Young for the video, and Welcome To Loud City’s J.A. Sherman for bringing it to our attention.)

Shook Ankles: Stephen Curry Successfully Hides From Jeff Taylor

December 11, 2012 Leave a comment

Right now Stephen Curry is playing like an All-Star, knocking down just about every shot that leaves his hand and using that accuracy to draw defenders and make plays for teammates. Let’s all cross our fingers that those ankles stay healthy.

Shook Ankles: Lance Stephenson Spins Past Tony Parker; Parker Cries

Somehow this gem slipped through the cracks last week, but better late than never when a move like this goes down. Also, how about Lance Stephenson this year? Not too shabby. Not too shabby at all.

Poor Paul Pierce. His second spill in as many games. For the sake of humanity, let us pray he never switches onto Jamal Crawford.

Shook Ankles: Jameer Nelson Half-Murders Paul Pierce

We’ll tally it as “half” of a murder because Nelson missed the shot. But wow. This was one of the most savage ankle-breaking moments I’ve seen all season. RIP to Paul Pierce’s ankles.


Shook Ankles: Tony Parks Inadvertently Embarrasses Raymond Felton

We’ve poked (lol) fun at his weight and overall suckyness for the past 18 months, but Ray Felton has actually been playing REALLY well for the first place/still undefeated New York Knicks. Leave it to Tony Parker to pull us all back to reality.


Shook Ankles: Jamal Crawford For MVP

Do I look like I’m kidding? Jamal Crawford shook Ray Allen 48 times last night. This move in particular was so mired in filth that Ryan Hollins decided playing dead was his safest option.
