Beyond The Buzzer:
Like Knicks’ Steve Novak and Carmelo Anthony, former Magic teammates, J.J. Redick and Jason Richardson held an NCAA tournament bet. Without naming the specifics of the bet, loser was to rep the other’s alma mater and post it on Twitter. Richardson was the obvious loser when he posted a photo of himself wearing a Duke sweatshirt, sweatpants and hat with the caption “A Spartan always pay his/her debt!” which prompted retweets and laughs from Redick. After his public humiliation, Richardson, the former Michigan State Spartan, posted one last photo of the clothes on fire, adding “But I bleed GREEN! Time to go wash this nasty blue off.”

ST. FRANCIS, Wis. -- J.J. Redick has been one of the most consistent shooters in the NBA the past seven seasons.
A career 39.3 3-point shooter, Redick entered Monday's game against Charlotte shooting just 32.9 percent from beyond the arc since coming to the Bucks at the trade deadline.
Prior to his first 20-point night with Milwaukee against the Bobcats Monday, Redick was averaging...
Bucks guard J.J. Redick received a flopping warning from the league Thursday for an incident that occurred March 30 against Oklahoma City.
With 2:29 left in the fourth quarter, Redick caught a pass from Monta Ellis and was bumped by Thunder guard Derek Fisher after a shot fake. A foul was called on Fisher, much to the dismay of Oklahoma City coach Scott Brooks.

New York Knicks forward Steve Novak is a proud alumnus of Marquette University, while teammate Carmelo Anthony led the Syracuse Orange to the NCAA championship back in 2003. With their alma mater schools facing each other last Sunday in the NCAA East Regional final, Novak and Anthony decided to place a friendly wager on the game.
After Marquette lost, Novak had to pay off the...
Based on advanced metrics used by Forbes, which do not rely solely on scoring, here is a list of the most overpaid NBA players for 2013.
Carmelo Anthony was on fire Tuesday night as he scored 50 points in stylish fashion, while leading the Knicks to their 9th win in a row a 102-90 past the Heat. As LeBron James didn’t play due to a strained right hamstring, I’m sure many will question how much stock this performance holds when talking about this match-ups come playoff time. Either way it was fun to watch.
Believe it or not, the one accolade you’d expect Carmelo Anthony to have, he doesn’t. Many have attached the label of best all-around scorer to Anthony’s name for several years now. Melo can take you inside or out and is a beast on the offensive end. Even Kobe Bryant gave Melo praise as he said he’s the toughest player for him to guard.
This season Carmelo has his best shot...
Dwight Howard wasn’t the only player Bango, the Bucks inflatable mascot, tried to scare during the Lakers’ recent trip to Milwaukee. Bango gave his best shot at frightening Monta Ellis, J.J. Redick and a few other Bucks players before attempting to give it a go on the Black Mamba, which apparently can’t be done. The Lakers equipment manager was another story. The poor guy just...
Here are three observations from the Atlanta Hawks' 95-82 loss to the Eastern Conference's No. 2 seed, the New York Knicks, on Wednesday night:
1. Carmelo Anthony and J.R. Smith controlled the game from the tip.
Anthony, who has been on a ridiculous tear during the Knicks' current 10-game winning streak, made the first basket of the game which was not a problem for...
The fact that the Knicks beat an undermanned Heat team doesn't change Chris Bosh's belief that his squad could handle them in a playoff series.
Despite youth, a late-season lull and tempered expectations, Syracuse hoops reached the Final Four in Atlanta for the first time since Carmelo Anthony led the Orange to Jim Boeheim's only national title. CuseNation.com breaks down SU's road to Saturday's clash with Michigan inside.
