Well guys, it’s a wrap for New York Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2014. It’s been exciting to see more pro athlete sightings at fashion events and front row at some of the biggest runway shows of the season. Athletes have really been expressing their love for fashion, and it’s good to see the industry embrace them. Especially NBA star Russell Westbrook who was spotted at numerous shows, with even a few personal invites from Vogue’s Anna Wintour. Check out highlights below from the week. I call it the “Athletes Takeover”.
Russell Westbrook was the athlete of the week, his bold style caught the attention of many fashion insiders. In only his second fashion week appearance Westbrook has made a name for himself.
The “Slickest 7-footer in the game” Tyson Chandler (New York Knicks) & his wife Kimberly were spotted at Vera Wang, Cynthia Rowley, Alexander Wang, and Altuzarra Spring/Summer 2014 shows. Tyson makes it look so effortless to dress his 7-foot frame, he always cleans up nice, and his wife’s sense of style complements him so well.
Tennis beauty Maria Sharapova resembled a runway model in her fashionable frocks. Maria was everywhere for fashion week, as she attended various runway shows, and events.
Maria spotted at Phillip Lim for target Launch party decked in Phillip Lim.
Amar’e Stoudemire suited up for Calvin Klein Collection 10th Anniversary party donned in sharp grey threads he spruced up with a trendy fedora hat. Amar’e elected to go with a more casual look at the Strut: The Fashionable Mom Show, as he wore a blazer jacket which layered a graphic crew neck shirt, coordinated with olive pants. I wasn’t too fond with the second look, didn’t really like the pants color, and the jacket just didn’t complement his shirt well.
NBA rising star Chandler Parsons (Houston Rockets) is showing his interest for fashion, as he was spied at J.Crew Spring/Summer 2014 show. Chandler kept his attire simple with a short-sleeve collar shirt, paired with denims, and red suede Del Toro chukkas.

Now I know what some readers might say, after doing an in-depth analysis on most of the starting lineup, why would the next player on the list be Andrea Bargnani? Because I feel like Bargnani, barring any health setbacks or inability to mesh in the preseason, will be in the New York Knicks starting lineup to start the season. Why? Because he can shoot and help the Knicks stretch...

New York is still New York. But there is another city that can offer heady doses of fame, fortune and brand promotion, and it happens to be home to the N.B.A.’s most glamorous franchise. The Los Angeles Lakers will have millions in salary-cap room next summer, and a powerful recruiter in Kobe Bryant, one of Anthony’s closest friends. Per N.B.A. rules, the Lakers...

Every off-season there is a flurry of action that results in major player movement as teams start to position themselves to make a run at a championship. This year it was the Brooklyn Nets bringing in the trio of Garnett, Terry and Pierce that got all the hoopla, but in my opinion the most overlooked move this off-season was the Knicks trading for PF/C,...
Drugged New York Knicks players fixed games in the 1981-82 season on behalf of their drug dealer who bet money against the team, according to a probe conducted by the FBI.
The feds probed whether three Knicks, reportedly “heavy users of cocaine,” and their supplier, “one of the largest dealers on the East Coast,” shaved points.
The Knicks finished 33-49 in 1982, last in the...
Former Celtics and Clippers guard Ricky Davis will reportedly workout for the New York Knicks on Tuesday.

Davis who’s probably most remembered for being a gunner and a selfishly getting...
Athletes fixing games for the benefit of gambling is a serious accusation, so no one will be taking the latest accusation lightly. CBS Sports has the story of the hapless Knicks of the early 80’s. In Brian Tuohy’s new book, “Larceny Games: Sports Gambling, Game Fixing and the FBI,” there are accusations that Knicks players from the 1981-82 season were heavy cocaine users...
A few “coked-up” New York Knicks players fixed games for their drug dealer during the 1981-82 NBA season, reports the New York Post.
In his book “Larceny Games: Sports Gambling, Game Fixing and the FBI,” author Brian Tuohy cites FBI documents that claim three players of the 1981-82 Knicks who were “heavy users of cocaine” threw games so their coke dealer could win big...

Ever hear of the Black Sox and the 1919 World Series scandal? “Shoeless” Joe Jackson and the other seven Chicago baseball players banned for life after throwing the World Series? Perhaps Pete Rose is more familiar to you? Rose was banned for betting on baseball during his time as a manager. Well that’s baseball. Fixing games couldn’t possibly happen in the NBA could it?

As if the off-season hasn’t been entertaining enough with the theatrics of the Brooklyn Nets and New York Knicks mouthpieces – basically Paul Pierce vs. Raymond Felton and J.R. Smith – Deron Williams has entered the verbal fest via ESPN: “Of course we want to run New York. The Knicks are our rival. I don’t [...]The post Deron Williams: We Want To Run New York appeared...
