According to Shumpert, the NBA indicated it caused “branding issues” and he was asked to remove it.

Back in the day the NBA banned the Air Jordan I because it didn’t follow the color pattern that was allowed on the court. These days it is hard to find a shoe that is not just white or black. Players are rocking shoes that are bright yellow, orange, and every color in the rainbow. The NBA is cool with that, but it seems that shaving a sneaker company’s logo on your head is going...
Iman Shumpert shaved an adidas logo into his head, which is a big no-no in the NBA rulebook. The Knicks small forward posted a before and after to his Instagram account.

The red-hot runs of Carmelo Anthony and the New York Knicks are set for a major challenge - a visit to Oklahoma City.
Anthony squares off with the only player ahead of him in the scoring race as his Knicks, riding the third-longest winning streak in franchise history, look to make a big statement Sunday against Kevin Durant and the Thunder.

In a big power move, Carmelo Anthony moved ahead of LeBron James to earn the top jersey sales spot of any NBA player. Here's the top 15 player jersey sales in the league.
Carmelo Anthony has finally done something Patrick Ewing and Bernard King never did.
No, not lead the Knicks to an NBA championship, although he will get a chance this year. Anthony topped the list of the NBA’s best-selling jerseys, the league announced Tuesday, becoming the first Knick to do so.
Granted, the NBA has only been keeping track of such sales since 2001, but it is safe...

Knicks 125 Thunder 120
Just in case the NBA world wasn’t convinced that the Knicks were contenders, a huge 125-120 win over the 56-21 Thunder has hopefully convinced them.

At the half, the Knicks had opened up a...

For the first time in 19 years, the Knicks are Atlantic Division Champions. Since that year, six teams have won the division, including the Miami Heat and the Orlando Magic, who are no longer in the division now. It has been a long journey, especially for the die-hards that stuck with the team since then, but the journey (at least for now) has a sweet ending...
