Quinton Ross not dead

One of the most morbid dreams came true for former Brooklyn Nets guard Quinton Ross on Monday when a media mistake sent his entire family into panic mode with a report of his death. It wasn’t him; it was another man with the same name and apparently the reporter of the story is a basketball fan.

The New York Post has been known to say some fishy things in its stories, but the often-criticized newspaper thought it had this one right…until a police report proved otherwise. The real victim was stuffed in a trash bad and “buried in a shallow grave”. Fortunately for the former basketball player’s family, it wasn’t him.

Needless to say, it was a “tough day” for the Ross family as he put it. His friends and family were hysterical and his phone was blowing up with people trying to confirm the report was false or mistaken. It was and it wasn’t: Quinton Ross was indeed dead, but it wasn’t the Quinton Ross who is from Dallas and last played in the NBA during the 2010-11 season. So if you’re a fan of the former player or a friend/family member, breathe easy. If you’re a friend/family member of the real victim, our thoughts and prayers are with you.

Dwyane Wade Makes Brooklyn Nets Look Foolish

You gotta give the Brooklyn Nets credit: Despite looking incredibly foolish at times in front of their home crowd, they competed against the Miami Heat on Tuesday night and only lost by four points. That said, you wouldn't know it from this epic clip of Dwyane Wade dribbling circles around multiple Nets and ultimately hitting a stellar fadeaway jumper.

Gerald Green Throws Down Monstrous Slam On Nets

Gerald Green hasn't been the most consistent player throughout the early stages of his young career, but there's no denying his overwhelming athleticism. Against the floundering Brooklyn Nets this evening, Green showcased some of those said abilities by emphatically throwing down a monstrous dunk, and he caught some major air in the process. If he's ever able to learn how to do it night-in and night out, Green is going to be an All-Star one day.
