  • Bryant Reeves Commercial with Dr. James Naismith Cartoon
    Dr. James Naismith is a Canadian hero. He invented this game we love and the man deserves more recognition than what he gets. One of our own invented this game, and the fact that we're relegated to one team in the world's biggest basketball league is…well, I'd rank it as a worst … Read more
  • Bryant Reeves Commercial: "I'm Big, and I'm Country"
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=63Iz_AbizOw I grew up a country boy, so I couldn't help but have some affinity for Bryant Reeves. I get him. I understood him then as a player, and I understand him now as a middle-aged man working his farm because he likes it. Here's a pic of him on his farm with my pal … Read more

  • CBC: Raptors Win Leading to a New Vancouver NBA Team
    "Canada! The NBA title is YOURS!" Those words, from the mouth of my man Matty D, rang true to the ears of this life-long basketball fan from Ontario. Living in Vancouver though, I could only think of one thing sweeter: "Vancouver! The NBA title is YOURS!" The Raptors win has lead to lots … Read more
  • Original Live Broadcast of Michael Heisley Buying the Vancouver Grizzlies
    Another moment in "ah dammit" Vancouver sports history. This is the original live broadcast on TSN, interupting a spirited ladies tennis match, where we see Stan McCammon (remember him?

  • Shareef Abdur-Rahim Highlights
    Reef was one of, if not the, best men to wear the teal. Watch this video to see him school Shaq with a high-bank off the glass, dunk hard on Marburry, make deft passes, and charge to the hoop like he's the only one out there. Stick around and watch Big Country with … Read more
