Found June 12, 2013 on Jocks and Stiletto Jill:
PLAYERS: Iman Shumpert
TEAMS: New York Knicks
Are you ready for your latest new couple alert? One of my theories is that every athlete that’s able wants to add a celebrity chick to his roster. It’s sort of like a “mama I made it moment” or at the very least, more love and adoration from the homies back home and the professional friends. :giggle: Add another jock to the pile, New York Knicks guard Iman Shumpert has been pining away for songstress Elle Varner and it looks like the two are finally official. Last year, Iman posted a candid photo of the two on Instagram with the caption, “@ellevarner Cute and creative. The two recently vacationed in Aruba which of course included lots of Vine and Instagram posts for us to follow the fun.   I like this paring. They seem to fit. And they have music in common. Summer love!   curtsy to Necole *******

I don’t really want to mention Linsanity at this point, but it’s kind of hard not to when I’m going to talk about Raymond Felton’s 2012-13 season. If you remember, this time last year we were wondering how the Knicks were going to develop Jeremy Lin, their unquestioned point guard of the present and future. If I would have told you on June 11, 2012 that Lin would be a Rocket...

With Jason Kidd becoming the Brooklyn Nets' new head coach, Raymond Felton admits he will need to take an elevated leadership role on the New York Knicks, as well as increased pressure to make smart decisions. “I guess that means I have to step up my game a little but more, be a little bit more of a leader,” Felton said. “It’s just a little more pressure on me I guess...

Jason Kidd, an NBA coach to root for in next year’s NFL draft

Well, JP, Mikhail Prokhorov was not Kidd-ing about hiring Jason Kidd as the head coach of the Brooklyn Nets (still feels weird to me). His hiring will be announced at a press conference this afternoon. This will, I guess somewhat obviously, be the recently retired Kidd’s first coaching job.
