The Windy Apple:
With a winless record of 0-4, the Knicks didn’t have the summer league success they may of hoped for, but at least we can take a couple of things away from the past week of games. For one, James White is an athlete. And while fans are understandably in the hunt for a shooting guard, White definitely has the potential to be a low cost, high reward player.
Aside from James White, who the Knicks signed to the veteran’s minimum, Chris Copeland has also been signed to a non-guaranteed deal and will join the team at training camp. The 6’8 forward has been a definite stand out in the summer league, averaging 14.3 PPG, 4.3 RPG, and 1.0 BLKPG- but most importantly, showing his versatility. He can dunk, knock down the outside jumper, and break ankles- what else could you ask from a power forward?
The New Jersey native played 4 years at the University of Colorado Boulder before going undrafted. After spending some time in the D-League, his last stint being in 2006-07, Copeland decided to ma...

The US Men's basketball team is off to London (and they don't have to worry about any economy-class tickets neither) on their charter flight. Some of the superstars on-board, like Carmelo Anthony, took the opportunity to catch a few z's, but just because one is asleep doesn't mean it isn't important to still look good. Carmelo does just that with the rare (but...
Ah yes, the Twitter apology
Just gimme a f-in break already. Twitter’s cool for a lot of reasons. I won’t go into them. One thing that sucks about it is that it gives today’s athletes another easy and lame way out of any sort of accountability. Back in the day, if you f-ed up — and needed/wanted to show some remorse for actions that reflected poorly or your organization —...
For the New York Knicks, it’s time to either put up or shut up. The time is now. In 2009, the Knicks wanted us to “declare”. But in the video above, we come across some prophetic words of wisdom.
“This is a city of expectations, 8 million critics urging you to step up, or shut up. You gotta work for every dime. When you’re in this city, you are all in. So the...
