Tyson and Kimberly Chandler lend a helping hand to victims of Hurricane Sandy
As an athlete, there is a certain level of responsibility to the city in which you play. It usually involves winning (duh), being fan-friendly, and being an asset to the community. Sometimes, though, the latter takes on unexpected meaning.
When Hurricane Sandy had her way with the eastern seaboard, she left devastation, inconvenience, and great loss. New York Knicks center Tyson Chandler and his wife, Kimberly, not only took notice, they took action.
The couple visited the Far Rockaways neighborhood of Queens, New York and decided to start the Rebound for Rockaway/Rebound for New York campaign to raise money and collect supplies for those in need.
Watch video of Tyson and Kimberly visiting ‘The Rockaways.”

New York Knicks star shooting guard J.R. Smith has been having one solid year off the bench so far. Smith is shooting an eye-opening 13-of-18 from behind-the-arc this season, which is 72-percent. He is also averaging 18 points and only one turnover in 33 minutes per game. He also averages five rebounds and three assists as well.
This might possibly be the best...
Some of the drama dealing with the New York Knicks this off-season was Jeremy Lin. The theatrics that enveloped why the Knicks front office let Lin go without an ounce of return was the nucleus of the Knicks brand. However, the franchise did make some solid, underrated moves and one of those moves was signing former Chicago Bull Ronnie Brewer.
Brewer was a notable bench player when...
J.R. Smith is enjoying a stretch in which he is playing the best basketball of his career. He’s currently averaging 18.2 points per game this season, which is second on the club trailing only Carmelo Anthony. This morning when asked about head coach Mike Woodson calling Smith “more professional,” J.R. gave the reason why: he’s not partying as much. Smith said:
With the amount of microphones they put on the court these days, NBA viewers are subjected to a new level of intimacy with the players, coaches and even the refs. You get the occasional “F-Bomb,” some insight into coaching strategy and, best of all, some trash talk.
Rasheed Wallace has a big mouth, that’s nothing new, but he has an interesting way of getting inside his opponents’...
The Knicks are currently off to their best start since the 93 season. Their current record is 5-0 with their latest victory taking place against the magic, 99-89. It was a tight first half but the Knicks pulled away in the fourth led by Carmelo Anthony’s 25 points and J.R. Smith came off the bench [...]
Only five games into the 2012-2013 NBA season and the New York Knicks find themselves the only undefeated team in the league – all five games being played sans the services of Amar’e Stoudemire or Iman Shumpert. When Stoudemire returns, immediately, I anticipate an impending imbalance within the structure of the offense. Of course, quite the opposite could occur. Amar’e could...
While the Celtics have taken time to develop chemistry and finally get above .500 with a 4-3 record, the New York Knicks have gotten off to a quick start and remain the only unbeaten team with a 5-0 record. They are off to a fast start and seemingly have fit their 7 new players into the chemistry of the team without a hitch. But is it fools gold?
One of the questions that the...
Carmelo Anthony kept the ball moving, setting up key baskets for Raymond Felton, J.R. Smith and Jason Kidd.
New York Knicks (5-0) vs. San Antonio Spurs (7-1)
The New York Knicks are the lone undefeated team remaining in the NBA. What is most impressive is that they have won every by 10 points or more and have not really been challenged -- even against the Heat. In fact, Tuesday's win over Orlando was the first time New York had trailed in the fourth quarter of any...

For Thanksgiving this year, I will say that I am thankful that Rasheed Wallace is back in my life. This is why it's important that Rasheed continues to play basketball, even if its for 10 minutes per game because no one else can bring this must confusion and awesomeness rolled into one than the Ball Don't Lie himself.
I kind of like the nickname Aflac...

In the first fives games of the season, the Knicks are still undeafeted by shocking people that they can be NBA title cotenders this season.
This is their best start since the 1993-1994 season when they went 7-0 and made the NBA finals that very season.
