Damon Harge may be 5'4" and in sixth grade, but he is torching high school kids at basketball right now. In fact, he's one of the nation's best H.S. point guards!

Imagine when he's taller, heavier and more experienced.

Despite his age (12) and weight (120), Harge is competing at the high school level for Creedmor (N.C.) Christian Faith Center Academy and more than holding his own:

"I looked him up and it's hard not to be impressed watching his YouTube videos," Christian Faith Center Academy coach Kendrick Williams told ESPN of Harge.

"I wasn't sure about how that would translate on the varsity level, but I was excited to find out. I just kept thinking 'he's only 12?'"

He is, and once scored 50 POINTS at a national tournament in front of former #1 NBA draft pick John Wall, who immediately emerged as Harge's #1 fan.

"The kid was unguardable," Wall said, recalling that game. "I knew right away he was a star. I just wanted him to continue to work hard."

"Yeah, he should be concentrating on having fun, but, at the same time, what's he gonna say, 'No thanks, I don't want to be ranked right now?'

Plus, I'd be shocked if there's a player that's more skilled than him at his age. It's not wrong and it's not his fault. It's just the day and age we live in."

The Miami Heat aren't exactly trying to play down their star power or title expectations with their 2011-12 intro video, set to "All of the Lights" by Kanye West.

Debuting tonight before the Heat's 115-107 win over the Celtics, the video shows Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh, LeBron James & Co. in all their grandiosity.

In a word ... EH. Last year's intro video, set to "In The Air Tonight," just invoked a visceral sense of impending awesomeness, even if you loathe the Heat.

"All of the Lights" is a little underwhelming. Maybe that's a good thing, though. After last year's Finals failure, maybe Miami should let its play do the talking:

Kris Humphries and the New Jersey Nets made their home debut against the Atlanta Hawks last night, and Kim Kardashian's ex was greeted with loud applause from the sellout crowd.

But he and his teammates gave the crowd little to cheer about after the opening buzzer.

The Hawks blew the Nets off the floor, winning by a final of 106-70 - quite the contrast for New Jersey from the night before - and holding last year's fifth-leading NBA rebounder to just six boards. Granted, he sat out most of the second half.

Through two games, Humphries' stats look like this:

The Force is strong with Oregon's latest football uniforms, but can the galactic empire shut down Wisconsin's ground game? We shall find out January 2.

The school, whose Nike Pro Combat gear claims to be the most advanced football uniform system in the world, is ready to do battle in the Rose Bowl.

Most advanced? Debatable. Most frequently changing, terrifying and hilarious? Yes.

  • New Oregon Football Uniforms
  • New Oregon Uniforms
  • Oregon Football Uniform

With Nike CEO and Oregon alum Phil Knight introducing new versions more often than we can count, the Ducks' uniforms are always a hot college football topic.

Their new, Darth Vader-esque iteration allegedly features 11 different synthetic materials within the jersey and pants alone, and 16 in the complete uniform.

None of which could shut down Matt Barkley a few weeks back. Just saying.

To help identify your favorite Ducks, the new unis include larger, bolder numbers with an iridescent sheen similar to that of Vader's cape a mallard's feathers.

No word if the tinted, all-black visor also features a James Earl Jones voice modulator.

The most-well known atheist in Hollywood is at it again.

Following Tim Tebow's worst performance of the season - four interceptions thrown in a 40-14 drubbing at the hands of the lowly Bills - Bill Maher Tweeted about the faithful quarterback:

Wow, Jesus just f—d #TimTebow bad! And on Xmas Eve! Somewhere in hell Satan is tebowing, saying to Hitler “Hey, Buffalo’s killing them."

  • Bill Maher Photograph
  • Tim Tebow Pic

The Tweet enraged many online, including Fox News' Eric Boiling, who replied: Bill Maher is disgusting vile trash. I can’t even repeat what he just tweeted about Tebow..on Christmas Eve. #straighttohellBill

Not surprisingly, Tebow - who was warned by a fake JC Himself that upcoming games would be difficult - didn't address Maher's Tweet, simply writing after his poor showing Saturday:

Tough game today but what’s most important is being able to celebrate the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ. Merry Christmas everyone GB².

What do you think of Maher's message? Did it go too far?

If Houston-area 10th grader Justise Winslow can avoid getting kicked out of games, his incredible athleticism will make him a prized college basketball recruit.

Winslow, a sophomore at Houston (Texas) St. John's School, was facing off against San Antonio (Texas) Antonian Prep in a holiday tournament in Houston.

In the clip below, the 6'5" small forward decided to take over on an explosive drive to the basket, finishing with a preposterous slam over some poor kid:

Winslow finished the game with 10 points and 12 rebounds ... five seconds later. After finishing the slam, Winslow stared down his dunk victim. Technical foul.

Then, to cap things off, as he walked back up the court, Winslow offered a salute to the St. John's fans in attendance. Second technical and automatic ejection.

Thirty seconds, one enormous slam and two technicals. That's almost as impressive as the stat line put up by Kris Humphries in last night's Nets opener.

Green Bay Packers fans are like no other. The Wisconsin city and its ticket-holders actually own the team, and season tickets are an invaluable commodity there.

As you can imagine, that made tickets to the Christmas game with the arch nemesis Bears the hottest (coldest?) ticket in town ... and a great vehicle for REVENGE!

If her sign is to be believed, this female Packer backer not only dissed one jackass guy in particular, she let a national TV audience know she was smart enough to move on.

  1. Wouldn't it be funny if the guy actually saw this from the couch?
  2. "Ho-Ho-Home Field Advantage" isn't terrible either ...
Packers Fan Sign

Nicely played, Packers fan. Not nicely played, Packers fan's ex-boyfriend.

Fans booed Kris Humphries again last night, but this time the power forward rebounded... and rebounded... and rebounded.

In fact, the Nets star enjoyed arguably his best day as a pro, dropping 21 points and 16 boards on the Washington Wizards and helping his team overcome a 20-point second quarter deficit. As you can see in these highlights, Kris showed far more life on the court than on any episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians:

After the game, Humphries said he uses the crowd's negative reaction as "motivation," while Head Coach Avery Johnson told reporters:

"I'm trying to figure out, what did he do? I'm serious. Maybe because I don't follow reality TV, I don't know all the ins and outs of it, but it's pretty hilarious to me. I don't know if they even know why they're booing him."
