When the Los Angeles Dodgers drafted 18-year-old Clayton Kershaw with the seventh overall pick in the 2006 MLB Draft, everyone knew the Dodgers were getting a great baseball player. He had gone 13-0 with a 0.77 ERA his senior year at Highland Park High School in Dallas, Texas. Along with Tim Lincecum and Evan Longoria, Kershaw has been one of the stars of a strong draft class.More »
Well, the Baltimore Ravens are your 2013 champions of the world. But man, what a game that was. Now, if you didn’t watch it, here is a recap: The Ravens led going into halftime 21-6, and the first play of the second half was Jacoby Jones going for a 108-yard kickoff return. It was first a 109-yard return but they had changed it to 108. Anyway, after that a power outage happened with about 7:49 to go in the third quarter. More »
Poor Ray Allen. In a new Kids Foot Locker commercial, the Miami Heat sharpshooter is just trying to ice his knee when, the next thing he knows, Chris Bosh (who thankfully has gotten some new socks) walks in with some kid named Tick Tock who starts taping him to the training table and then steals his name. Perhaps it's revenge for that time Carmelo Anthony dunked on all those kids.

Welcome to Brooklyn. Kobe Bryant played in his first game at the Brooklyn Nets' Barclays Center on Tuesday night, and the Nets Kris Humphries and Gerald Wallace are kinda wishing he hadn't. Kobe posterized the Nets' duo with this slam and a special camera captured the dunk in all of its high definition, slow motion goodness.

We are big fans of trick shot videos here at SIKIDS.com, whether it's Kyle Singler throwing a ball off a car or LeBron James's son draining one from a balcony. But this one might take the cake. While most two-year-olds are just trying to figure out potty training, this one is dropping buckets. On all kinds of hoops. With his brothers and sister in his face. Sure, his form might not be ideal, but that's probably because HE IS TWO YEARS OLD. Now that we're posting this, we're sure it's only a matter of time before we see a newborn baby swishing it up.

In one of the weirdest Super Bowls we've ever seen, there was no shortage of huge plays. One of the best happened in the second quarter. Baltimore Ravens Jacoby Jones dashed by a confused San Francisco 49ers secondary to get wide open downfield. When Jones turned, caught the pass, fell backwards, then alertly popped up and scored, the 56-yard touchdown that put the Ravens up 21-3.
Well, aside from the lights going out in the Superdome, we wanted to show you, our faithful readers, the best play of the game. It came down to a choice between Jacoby Jones and Jacoby Jones. We decided to go with his long catch instead of his scintillating kickoff return.
A play like that was just begging to be reenacted by some toys. So we took the OYO Sportstoys commemorative Super Bowl minifigures and created a stop-motion animation of that long Flacco toss. Admittedly, OYO doesn't make their Lego-like figures for every single player, so we had to sub in 49ers receiver Michael Crabtree at safety. Check out the video above and see an animated gif after the jump.
