With the basketball season starting I thought I would publish a new hub. Maybe about my favorite team? About the betting scandal? About Agent Zero's swimming pool?
Nothing really caught my fancy so I thought I'd do a collection of basketball jokes. At least I'd get a laugh out of it!
I hope you enjoy these jokes, and if you know of better ones either send them to me or share in the comments section.
A psychology instructor had just finished a lecture on mental health and was giving give an oral quiz to the freshman class.
Speaking specifically about manic depression, the instructor asked, "How would you diagnose a patient who walks back and forth screaming at the top of his lungs one minute, then sits in a chair weeping uncontrollably the next?"
A young man in the rear of the room raised his hand and answered, "A basketball coach?"

Glutton for Punishment
There was a Knicks fan with anosebleed seat in Madison Square Garden. Looking around, he spotted an empty seat court side. So, he made his way down to the empty seat.
When he arrived at the seat, he asked the man sitting next to it, "Is this seat taken?"
The man replied, "This was my wife's seat. She passed away. She was a big basketball fan."
"I'm so sorry to hear of your loss. May I ask why you didn't give the ticket to a friend or a relative?"
"They're all at the funeral."
Funny Moments on the Court
A true Bobby Knight story. (From the L.A. Times.)

Why are the Dallas Mavericks going to change their name to the Possums?
