The Sport Mentalist 2:
Regrettably, we no longer get to see the nightly highlights of the mind-boggling passes that Jason Kidd used to make on the regular.

New York Knicks' forward Carmelo Anthony has been on a tear this season thus far. He's been averaging 27.9 points a game on an efficient 47.3% front he field. What's more astonishing is his increase in hustle on defense. However, after going down with a sprained ankle in the what would have likely been blowout of the Los Angeles Lakers, Anthony is not expected to play...
We know Melo gets buckets. We know he can carry his team to success. He has a track record in college, but the pros are a different matter. But he has been scorching. He’s probably the biggest reason with the Knicks being relevant. In fact, this is what Kobe had to say about it. The [...]

The beginning of the regular season allows us to make some…silly predictions, to say the least. If you don't believe me, look just at last year's shortened season. This time last season, the Denver Nuggets were being lauded as a finals team, the Philadelphia 76ers looked like one of the best teams in the East, the Celtics were struggling, Indiana was...
