Jocks and Stiletto Jill:
Baron Davis appeared on a recent podcast where he shared a story about him being abducted by aliens as he drove from Las Vegas to L.A. BD said the aliens were ugly and popped him in the face. Then he blacked out and when he came to, he couldn’t remember all the details but opted to hit up In-N-Out Burgers to ponder the adventure and new found-clarity the interaction seemed to have given him…
Oh… Meanwhile, BD has quietly transitioned from his NBA career to making moves in Hollywood. BD has a new show coming to the Esquire network in September.
“HOW I ROCK IT” will profiles the athletes, musicians, celebrities, designers, influencers and street-style icons who are setting a stylish new standard for today’s man.

Recently Baron Davis was on “The Champs Podcast” talking about a wide range of topics. One of those topics was his alien abduction. At first the hosts of the podcast thought he was joking, but Davis told the guys that he was not telling a tall tale.
According to Davis the event happened about two weeks ago. He told the hosts, “I was, um, on my way from Vegas here to L.A. I’m...

The summer doldrums: the post-draft-basketball-withdrawal is in full swing. At no other time could the specter of Jerome Jordan earning a roster spot or the possibility of signing Aaron Brooks be noteworthy.
There’s obviously plenty of roster left to fill out, negotiations with Elton Brand and Kenyon Martin are still ongoing. In the interim though, let’s analyze...
The Los Angeles Lakers waived forward Metta World Peace via the amnesty rule Thursday, making him available to sign with the New York Knicks. Teams with room under the salary cap have 48 hours to put a claim in for World Peace before he becomes an unrestricted free agent.

The Knicks showed some promise at times in the first game of their 2013 Summer League campaign, but fell short, 77-72 to the New Orleans Pelicans. However, they played very well at times, and there were a few early standouts.
Tim Hardaway Jr. had the most pressure on him to succeed, and he had his good moments. Hardaway Jr. finished with 13 points, but had a disappointing...
Not much to report here, Matthews, who is a slender center, played at a very small school, but completely dominated. Is he NBA material? I am not sure. From what I can see, A.J. needs to bulk up and learn how to take on physical contact in the paint. You cannot teach height, so if he can evolve as a player he will get the chance to stick in the NBA.
I would imagine he would not...
NY STATE OF MIND
Metta World Peace and the Knicks reportedly have mutual interest in one another. There's a good chance he could sign with New York.
The Knicks recently made some type of a splash by landing stretch-forward, Andrea Bargnani, from the Toronto Raptors in exchange for Marcus Camby, Steve Novak, Quentin Richardson (via a sign-and-trade), a first-round pick in 2016 and second-round selections in 2014 and 2017. A trade that has caught much heat from all corners of the NBA’s fan sector. But, unlike most of them, some...
Since we’re regularly reminded that the Knicks have little flexibility in spending, it’s imperative that the team gets thrifty while shopping for talent. Today, the Knicks Summer League squad takes the court for the first time in Vegas. Perhaps the roster will reveal a diamond in the rough, slept on type of player that’s productive and efficient, for the low low.
Metta World Peace cleared waivers on Sunday to become an unrestricted free agent.
World Peace wants to sign with the New York Knicks, according to a source close to the situation.
The Knicks have already reached out to World Peace and can offer their taxpayer mid-level exception at approximately $1.7 million.
World Peace is also considering the Los Angeles Clippers and the Shanghai...
The Indiana Pacers have officially announced they signed free-agent forward Chris Copeland, who spent last season with the New York Knicks.
Copeland averaged 8.7 points on 47.9 percent shooting, including 42.1 percent from 3-point range, and 2.1 rebounds per game while helping lead the Knicks to the Atlantic Division title.
Before signing with the Knicks in 2012, Copeland played...
Metta World Peace was waived by the Los Angeles Lakers during the week and, if the veteran forward clears waivers, he is expected to sign with the New York Knicks. The Knicks were mentioned as a strong possibility for World Peace from the moment the Lakers waived him. Al Iannozzone of Newsday says the Knicks [...]
