And the good news just keeps on rolling in for the Knicks.As the Knicks gun for their third straight victory later Friday evening, they can rest assured Jason Kidd and his veteran presence will hit the hardwood ready to help pace them to victory.With just hours to go until the contest, New York has still continued to receive good news with regard to NBA All-Star Weekend.Earlier, we here at KnicksJournal.com discussed Eastern Conference squad captain Dwyane Wade's appointment of former college teammate Steve Novak into the Sprite Three-Point Contest.As he joins Carmelo Anthony and Tyson Chandler in Houston during the weekend, it appears as though the short-lived trio has quickly become a foursome.After much speculation, Wade announced that the high-flying James "Flight" White" will be throwing it down during the Sprite Slam-Dunk Contest.Though he hasn't seen too much time on the court this season (White does, however, have six starts), the 30 year old swingman has returned to NBA after a bevy of seasons abroad. Highly regarded as one (if not the) of the best dunkers in the league, this is quite the opportune time to give White his shot.For more on White's leaping potential, check out this piece over at RidiculousUpside.com to view the prowess he displayed during the 2009 NBADL Slam Dunk Contest.
