Turn On The Knicks:
New York Knicks
Los Angeles Lakers
Los Angeles Clippers
San Antonio Spurs
I have listened to many debates, conversations, and opinions about who the top five players are in the National Basketball Association today. In my eyes, the top four are clear cut, consisting of Kobe Bryant, Lebron James, Kevin Durant, and Dwayne Wade. So who would you say is the number five?
Carmelo Anthony has been tossed around in this conversation every time it’s brought up, and I’ve heard an array of respected analysts, former players, etc., give their opinion. With it almost being impossible to figure out which side the majority sways, I believe it’s a definite. Anthony is not only one of the best scorers we have in the game right now, but he’s one of the best all-time. I’ve heard Dwight Howard (prior to this season), Chris Paul, Dirk Nowitzki, and even Deron Williams at one point as names being thrown around. I think the most legitmate argue out of the bunch is Paul, and due to age, guys like Duncan and Nowitzki just don’t get that nod for me.

After weeks of debate, we still have no idea what Celtics forward Kevin Garnett said to Carmelo Anthony to get him so irate during that January 7 contest.
Anthony was beyond upset, and tried to confront Garnett outside the Celtics team bus. What we do know today though, is that Garnett did not says Anthony’s wife tasted like Honey Nut Cheerios.

Stephen Curry didn’t feel like missing any shots last night, and usually when a great shooter like him decides to do that, the opposition is in some serious trouble. Last night, the Knicks were that opposition and indeed they were in danger. Just when it looked like the Knicks might run away with the game early on, Curry went nuts in the second quarter and from then on the Knicks...

An ugly stretch of basketball has led to an appropriate amount of pessimism among New York Knicks fans in the previous couple of weeks. It isn’t breaking news that this has been a .500 basketball team for the bulk of the season and that they haven’t inspired much confidence as a serious contender in the Eastern Conference. The bar was set higher this year than getting blown...
