50 Years of Free Throw Practice Hasn’t Helped

50 Years of Free Throw Practice Hasn’t Helped

Basketball in the United States has changed in myriad ways over the decades, from flat-footed set shots to dunks, from crotch-hugging uniforms to baggy knee-length shorts, from the dominance of American players to the recent infusion of international stars. But one thing has remained remarkably constant: the rate at which players make free throws.

The 12 Dumbest Convicted Pro Athletes

The 12 Dumbest Convicted Pro Athletes

The stereotype of the dumb athlete is as cliche today as "blacks love taffy" and "Eskimos own all Locksmith shops" were 20 years ago. And while we don't know much about taffy (accept that it tastes awesome), we are reminded daily that extraordinary athletic ability is not often accompanied by an extraordinary mind. Yes, there are always exceptions to every rule, but these 12 pro athletes have gone out of their way to keep this stereotype alive. Here are the 12 Dumbest Convicted Pro Athletes.

The Most Ridiculous Movie Plots Ever

The Most Ridiculous Movie Plots Ever

Unstoppable came out this past weekend and earned around $23 million at the box office, placing it second behind Megamind. The plot centers on a rail company frantically working to prevent an unmanned, half-mile-long freight train carrying combustible liquids and poisonous gas from wiping out a city. Sounds ridiculous, right? Well, don't judge a movie by its trailer; it's been receiving favorable reviews. However, after seeing the trailer we felt compelled to touch upon some especially terrible movie plots.

After July 1, LeBron, Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh and many other top superstars can be changing zip codes.
