Just wait until J.R. Smith T’s up Joey Crawford. It only a matter of when.
Who to believe?
Russ Smith, who says he is undecided about whether he will enter the NBA draft? His dad who says Russ is gone?
Or Rick Pitino who says it is 50-50 whether Smith will return to play basketball at the University of Louisville next season?
Gorgui Dieng, who doesn’t seem at all to be infatuated by the NBA and its riches, and indicates that he is happy here?
The day after arguably the greatest day in Louisville sports history, one of the saddest things to ever take place has happened. Russ “Basedking” Smith has decided that he will forgo his senior season in Louisville and enter into the NBA Draft.

And to further stunt on the league, Melo’s jersey outsold...

Knicks 125 Thunder 120
Just in case the NBA world wasn’t convinced that the Knicks were contenders, a huge 125-120 win over the 56-21 Thunder has hopefully convinced them.

With their recent victories against the Heat, Celtics, Thunder and Grizzlies, the New York Knicks are back in the spotlight. Coming off of a brutal West Coast trip and a 4-game losing streak, the Knicks have turned it around and compiled a 13-game winning streak. While the Knicks have played a great team-game, the team has relied on bonafide superstar Carmelo Anthony. Through his...
Any attempts to doubt the legitimacy of the New York Knicks recent winning streak sound nothing short of idiotic by this point. The Knicks went into Oklahoma City in an enormous game for both teams in what was a potential NBA Finals preview and pulled out their 12th straight victory, 125-120. They have now hit 50 wins for the first time since 1999, basically wrapped up the Atlantic...
