Jocks and Stiletto Jill:
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!

After an exit out of the playoffs that was far too early for any Knick fans expectations, everyone has one thing to look forward to: Iman Shumpert.
Despite not playing a full season due to a league-wide lockout and an ACL tear, Shumpert has developed his game and IS ready to take the next step. Iman proved that in the playoffs, as he was the only Knick to play consistently...
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...

Jason Kidd did not stay away from the NBA for long. Kidd, 40, recently retired but will return to the league as the new head coach of the Brooklyn Nets.
Kidd played for the Nets from 2001-2008 and reportedly blew the team away when interviewed for...
Over the past few weeks, we’ve been showing you some of the more miserable draft nights in New York Knicks history. In case you missed them, here’s the list that leaves much to be desired.
Nene Hilario (the Antonio McDyess trade)
If you thought things couldn’t get any worse, you are sorely mistaken. This Throwback Thursday, we’re taking you...

Who do you prefer the New York Knicks take with the 24th overall pick in the NBA Draft?
Joe Caporoso - Considering their position...
Though they only own the 24th overall selection in this month's NBA Draft, Glen Grunwald and the Knicks know anything they can happen.Trades often go down just seconds before a pick, and though a team may not have multiple draft choices, moves can always be made to snag another pick in order to reel in that second or third player that caught an executive's eye during workouts...
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...
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. There is a natural inclination to think that a PG is sort of a natural to become a head...
Jason Kidd could be reunited with the Nets franchise by the end of the week as Kidd emerges as the top candidate to take over as Brooklyn's new head coach, according to multiple reports.
Contract talks are under way and Kidd is working to put together a coaching staff, according to Yahoo Sports! To hire Kidd, the Nets are reportedly looking to also add one or two assistant coaches...
