Ladies and gentlemen we have ourselves another walkoff jersey. The second I saw this Charlie Ward New York Knicks jersey I was in awe of it.
Charlie Ward’s name was much more valuable than his actual play on the court was. Ward spent 11 seasons in the NBA and was nothing more than a serviceable backup. His final stat line looked like this: 6.3 ppg, 4.0 dimes, 2.6 boards, and 1.2 steals while shooting 40.8% from the field (BARF! How very Larry Hughes of him) and 77% from the charity stripe. We all know that he was a Heisman Trophy winning QB at Florida State and that basketball was his second best sport but I thought his numbers were better than that. Apparently not. If you need any more proof of why the Knicks haven’t won a championship in so long consider this. Charlie Ward made $34 million over his 11 year career including topping out at $6 million per year in 03′-04′. All but two of those seasons were with the Knicks.
Here’s some sports knowledge that you can drop on your friends about Charlie Ward. His backcourt mate at Florida State was none other than Sam Cassell.

When Landry Fields verbally agreed to a 3-year deal worth $20 million with the Toronto Raptors, many referred to the offer as the most overpaying contract of free agency- immediately ruling out the Knicks from matching. Since Fields officially inked the deal on Wednesday, the 3-day clock for the Knicks started ticking, making Saturday their last opportunity to match the offer sheet...
After reports surfaced this morning that Jeremy Lin was “upset” with the Knicks, he quickly denied the accusation via Twitter:
Despite it being publicly known that the Knicks would match any offer made to Lin, the Daily News reports that the young guard felt slighted that the Knicks didn’t go after him sooner.
“He was surprised that the Knicks didn’t make the first...
The New York Knicks definitely got older. The question is, did they get better? Intent on getting the most out of their high-priced stars, Carmelo Anthony and Amar'e Stoudemire, while the two are still in their respective primes, the team was aggressive in free agency by signing 39-year-old point guard Jason Kidd with their taxpayer's mid-level exception and acquiring 38...
When you think of Veteran Point Guards still active in the NBA that can be a difference maker on any team, those names that quickly come to mind are the likes of Steve Nash, Chauncey Billups, Derek Fisher and Jason Kidd. I am sure there are other point guards in the NBA right now that can be difference makers, but when you look for pure leadership, guys who have been...
Carmelo Anthony is a spokesperson for “Got Chocolate Milk” and along with Olympic swimmer, Dana Torres, stars in this “My After” commercial. Yeah, I imagine Melo was gulping that chocolate milk in his recent weight loss. (sarcasm font) H/T The Windy Apple
