There were a lot of questions surrounding the release of Apple's new iPhone 5. Would it be thinner and lighter? Would it have a larger screen? Would it allow humans to speak directly to dolphins? (O.K., maybe I'm the only one that was wondering about that last question.) But New York Knicks guard Iman Shumpert had an even more important question that he wanted answered: How would the iPhone 5 work as a basketball? To find out the answer he decided to take a brand new iPhone to a basketball court and discovered that—wait for it—the iPhone makes for a really horrible basketball. Let us all say it together now: "DUH!"

On Wednesday, Reebok announced that they would be re-releasing the Question shoe in the white/blue colorway on October 5. Since the shoe was originally released during Allen Iverson's NBA rookie season in 1996-97 (before most SI Kids readers were born), a brief history lesson may be required here. First, there was a basketball player named Allen Iverson.
Tonight's MLS All-Star Game (ESPN2, 8:30 p.m.) between the Major League Soccer's top players and Chelsea FC of the Premier League is being called the world's first "smart soccer" game. This doesn't mean that all previous MLS games have been dumb, it's just that tonight's contest will incorporate adidas's miCoach Elite System for the first time. More »
FOOTBALL HAS BEGUN!!! YYYYYEEEEHHHHAAAWWWW!!!!! After a crazy weekend in the NFL, both pro and college football are officially rolling full speed ahead and I couldn’t be more pumped. Now that we have football every weekend again, you know what else that means? We get to tailgate!
Is there anything better than cranking up the grill outside and torching hamburgers and hot dogs and (the Professor’s personal favorite) brats? Of course not. The other awesome part about tailgating is all the cool outdoor games you can play with your friends and family. Now you can upgrade your game kits with a bunch of new takes on all the great classics from Sportcraft.

NBA All-Star weekend is finally here! NBA fans have a whole weekend to soak in the league’s best players putting on a show, from the celebrity game to the rookie-sophomore contest all the way to main event on Sunday evening. But there’s still one competition that trumps all the others: the dunk contest.
Watching the league’s most athletic players showing off their most impressive dunks has always been my favorite moment of All-Star weekend. Julius Erving. Michael Jordan. Vince Carter. Legends are made in the dunk contest. We all wish we could fly through the air and pull off some of the most iconic dunks, but most of us, myself included, can’t jump high enough to do a 360 tomahawk on a regulation 10-foot rim.
And that’s where Nerfoop Pro Basketball Set comes into play.
