This commercial by MLB 12′ The Show about the Cubs is what was the inspiration for this article by special contributor Victor Marinier.
It’s 2012, the Chicago Cubs haven’t won a World Series in 104 years and Cub’s fans like myself have been saying “wait till next year” my entire life. Which begs the question: Is this “next year”? Stranger things have happened. Hell, it’s been a strange year. If I told you a year ago that a God-loving quarterback who has an arm motion like a sling shot and couldn’t complete 50% of his passes would lead the Denver Broncos to a slew of fourth quarter comebacks and make playoffs in the same year that an undrafted Asian point guard would come off the bench to lead the New York Knicks into playoff contention and start a worldwide phenomenon, would you have believed me? Either I’m full of **** and crazy or the Mayans were right about the end of the world. Both may be true. Either way, perhaps this is the year for the Cubs to make an unlikely run to the Wo...

Carmelo Anthony has some SERIOUS BAD BLOOD for fellow New York Knicks star Jeremy Lin, as it's being reported that Anthony -- during basketball games -- acts as if Lin isn't a member of the basketball team.When "Melo" first returned to the basketball court -- after being injured -- Lin would try to include "Melo" into D'Antoni's system. When Anthony...
Some people ridicule high-profile sports stars for not signing autographs, slapping five with fans and being more personable in general. Those people now have evidence why athletes should be selective as to their interactions with fans. This rude little obnoxious twerp Bulls fan thought he'd impress his fans and the YouTube world by spitting in his hand and giving high-fives...
Just in case the Knicks’ six straight losses weren’t enough to show you Linsanity is done with, here’s some Jeremy Lin merchandise marked for 50 percent off in a Times Square convenience store.
After hopes were running high for the New York Knicks heading into the All-Star break, they have since been shot down after starting the second half of the shortened season 1-5. Moreover, Jeremy Lin’s gaudy numbers have since been brought down to a more realistic, yet respectable 16.8 ppg and 8.1 apg.
The biggest issue concerning the Knicks however is not their point guard. It’s...
No one was more stunned about New York Knicks head coach Mike D'Antoni's resignation than the man at the center of all of the Linsanity— Jeremy Lin, himself.
"I was surprised," Lin said of D'Antoni's departure. "I know some people were talking about it and what-not, but I didn't know the reality of it. I figured after the shoot-around he...
Things are not going very well for the New York Knicks, as last night’s 104-99 loss to the Chicago Bulls extended their losing streak to 6 games and dropped them 6 games below .500 and into a tie with the Milwaukee Bucks for the 8th seed in the Eastern Conference playoff race. At the center of the drama is Knicks coach Mike D’Antoni, who is the target of both the wrath of fans...

BEIJING — While Jeremy Lin has become an NBA sensation, Knicks reject Stephon Marbury has been tearing it up on the other side of the world, dominating...
In Monday night's NBA game from Chicago, Bulls guard Derrick Rose thought he had an easy layup after he dribbled past New York Knicks point guard Jeremy Lin. However, Lin makes a real nice defensive play with a block from behind, showing that he hasn't completely fallen off the face of the earth.
However, Rose got the last laugh as the top scorer in the game with 32 points...
The Knicks' fantastic February is forgotten, replaced by a March meltdown.
They are back to playing the way they were in January, before Jeremy Lin's emergence. New York has lost six in a row for the second time this season and is in danger of missing the playoffs.
Even if they regroup and make the postseason, history indicates they won't be a threat to advance. According...
This is never going to work. The parts don't add up, don't fit together. Two superstars, a great rebounder and a bunch of Linsanity. That's what the New York Knicks should be. Instead, they are two whiners with huge egos, a super-soft coach, and a young point guard, Jeremy Lin, who is confused and hopeless in a toxic environment.
The Chicago Bulls, missing three key...
With the news surfacing yesterday that Mike D’Antoni had resigned as head coach of the Knicks, a certain self-conscious someone that once played under New York’s former coach went on a tweeting spree. Stephon Marbury, who has seemingly disappeared off the face of the planet over the past few years, never saw eye-to-eye with D’Antoni when he took over in New York toward the...
Please have herpes, please have herpes, please have herpes. Aw, I feel bad for Jeremy Lin and the other New York Knicks who touched the non-germophobe man. [Follow me @TravisHouser]
The Knicks finally won a game Wednesday night, blasting the hapless Blazers by 40+ at MSG. That win halted a six game losing streak that ultimately ended up in coach Mike D'Antoni resigning, Carmelo Anthony becoming the scorn of New York, the Knicks back outside the Top 8 in the Eastern Conference, and Jeremy Lin merchandise being slashed like Halloween costumes in November...
Had Monday night been the last games played during the regular season in the Association, the New York Knicks would not be heading to the Playoffs after losing their sixth straight contest to the Chicago Bulls by a final tally of 104-99. The Knicks’ loss combined with the third win in a row for the Milwaukee Bucks, have Milwaukee as the eighth seed with New York on the outside...
Line of the Night: Brandon Jennings (3.09) scored 34 points, hitting 6 threes, with 7 rebounds, 7 assists and 2 blocks in a 105-99 win over the Nets. Jennings is still too inconsistent to be put in the class of elite PGs, but the 22 year-old has taken a big step forward this season, which is all you can ask for from a young PG. There is an outside chance that he might be traded along...
