James White brought out some of the best props we have seen for a dunk contest.
The New York Knicks swingman, nicknamed “Flight” because of his incredible leaping abilities, brought out an entire flight crew as props for his first dunk attempt Saturday in Houston. White lined the attendants up in two rows and ran through the group of attendants on his way to dunking from a step inside the line.
Though he missed his first attempt, White nailed the second attempt. He only was rewarded with a score of 45, which seemed low for a dunk of such difficulty. It seemed like the judges penalized him for missing his first attempt.
For those wondering how close to the line he was, this should give you a good idea:

Knicks star Amar'e Stoudemire is catching some flak for tweeting that former LAPD officer Christopher Dorner's manifesto is "interesting" and "a must read."
Woody says he expects Wallace to play no more than 9-10 minutes once he returns. “He’ll never be 100 percent,” he said.

From my eyes, the New York Knicks are positioning themselves to make a move in the next 2 weeks. When the All-Star break is over and teams report back to their practice facilities, the New York Knicks will...
According to Sheridan Hoops, The camp of Iman Shumpert has grown frustrated the way Iman has been developed in the Knicks rotation since his return from injury. I hope all this is not true and Iman is a happy camper in the Orange an Blue. If you read this article from Sheridan Hoops, it sounds as if the Knicks are not using him the proper way and Iman and his handlers are not happy...
Though the Knicks lost three out of their last four contests heading into NBA All-Star Weekend, there's no denying that as they hold the second best record in the Eastern Conference, New York displays more promise than they have in quite some time.An elevated team effort and more overall success often translates to greater representation throughout all the festivities and competitions...
Carmelo Anthony and Diddy hosted a party the Ayva Center in Houston Saturday with Chris Brown, Sean Kingston and more coming out to enjoy the night.

Stephon Marbury proves that theory correct. The ex-NBA star evidently didn’t understand that if you can read it and sign it, it’s a binding contract.
Marbury promised his then chef Thurayyah Mitchell and jump off $900,000 dollars to keep their affair private. Mitchell had the agreement in writing, and filed a lawsuit against Marbury after...
With the All-Star break shortly coming to an end, I’m taking a look at each player on the roster and will evaluate their production thus far into the season. The Knicks started out the season as one of the few surprise teams in the league, once leading all of the Eastern Conference before coming back down to earth. They are currently the number two seed in...
Imagine if Steve Novak was in that State Farm commercial with Aaron Rogers talking to a classroom of students. One of the kids could tell him he should have “double checked” the defender with a pump fake and then shoot to avoid from being blocked.
“Is that a question?” Novak could ask.
“No, just an observation,” replies the student with a smile.
Novak may “Discount...
Just five weeks ago, Carmelo Anthony hated Kevin Garnett. We all know the story; Anthony and Garnett were going at it in a tightly contested game back on Jan. 8. It got chippy and the two started jawing and before long, Garnett went below the belt like he normally does and allegedly said that Anthony’s wife “tastes like Honey Nut Cheerios.”
Now I’m not married but if...
It seems the issues between Kevin Garnett and Carmelo Anthony have been resolved.
The two Eastern Conference All-Stars teamed up to make fun of TNT announcer Craig Sager‘s turquoise suit. Sager asked Anthony about the spat between the Knick and Celtic at practice, and Anthony pulled Garnett over to help him answer the question.
“Honey Nut Cheerios” were not mentioned, but Garnett...
We know about most of the participants in this year’s dunk contest. Just kidding. In the past few years, the dunk contest has been filled with up and comers and bench warmers. So allow me to reintroduce themselves. Jeremy Evans is that nobody that won last year. I don’t think too many people even remember that he won last year. Go ahead. Ask one of your boys who won the NBA dunk...
Kevin Garnett and Carmelo Anthony have seem to resolve the little spat they had earlier in the year, and have since united for a greater cause: clowning Craig Sager’s awful suit.
Nice to see the two getting along again, and gotta love the comeback Sager threw back at KG.
All turquoise errthing
The New York Knicks-Brooklyn Nets rivalry is about to get a whole lot more interesting. Both teams have put in bids for the 2015 All-Star Game, and because of their arena situations – MSG recently being renovated and the brand new Barclays Center – NBA deputy commissioner, Adam Silver says it’s “likely” it will be in one of the two boroughs. The Knicks last hosted an All...
Honey Nut Cheerios took on a whole new meaning this year after an on court altercation between Knicks Carmelo Anthony and Celtics Kevin Garnett continued into the locker room and halls of Madison Square Garden. Melo said he and KG spoke on the phone a short time after and squashed the beef but the question lingered, are they really “cool.”
Apparently so, the two are teammates...
