The Knicks have now got a NBA Champion & a 10x all star back in the city. Jason Kidd has always displayed his ability to be able to just to any environment. This is now his 5th and hopefully final stop in his journey to bring a championship back to the city. The 39 year old superstar point guard has been through it all, but is definitely ready to get back on the court with his new team. “The core of the team when you look at our front line and you talk about Tyson in the middle, Amar’e [Stoudemire], and Carmelo [Anthony], you are talking about guys who are very athletic that understand what it takes to win and it’s going to be a lot of fun to be out on the floor with those guys,” Kidd said. Another Superstar point guard also has changed citys this year. Steve Nash jumped ship to Laker nation. Nash and Kidd have drawn comparisons throughout there whole career and the new Knicks point guard seen the chemistry between Stoudemire & Nash throughout the last decade. “With Amar’e, I hope I can be like a Nash to be able to get him the ball where he likes it to be successful. Make it where he doesn't have to work as hard, easy layups, catch and shoot where he likes it,” Kidd explained. Kidd is not only excited about the opportunity to unite with Stoudemire, but also a team featuring  players such as Anthony and Chandler. But the chance to once again dethrone the heat and become the force in the east. “I think we have a team that is built with some athletes but some older guys that understand what it takes to be successful, so the sky is the limit,” Kidd stated.

Stephon Marbury Sends Unsolicited Email to GQ, With Photos of Statue in China

Say this for Stephon Marbury: He seems to be in a good place. Marbury, who started 74 games for the New York Knicks in the 2006-07 season only to have his career abruptly end just two years later at the age of 31, has managed to stay involved in the game that brought him fame and fortune. Unlike many other former NBA players who finish out their careers in Europe, Marbury headed...

Knicks' Carmelo Anthony wants team to have a gold-medal mindset

New York Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony told the New York Post that he wants the team to have the same mentality Team USA had during its gold-medal winning effort at the London Olympics.   “I’m excited to get this thing going,” Anthony said. “Especially coming off this run we just had with the USA team. To be able to put that team together and still be able to accomplish...

Steve Nash vs. Jason Kidd: Who’s better?

  I can vividly remember playing pickup basketball as a kid. I was horrible back then. I had no athletic ability; I couldn’t jump, run or shoot.  The best attribute of my game was passing simply because I had no other options.  I can remember listening to guys shoot the ball, yelling “Kobe” as the ball goes through the net.  I used to wish that I had that ability.  I practiced...

New York Knicks Keeping Baron Davis Around

After suffering a devastating right knee injury — a torn ACL and MCL — during this last season’s playoffs, 33-year-old point guard Baron Davis won’t be re-signed by the New York Knicks. It’s actually very likely that Davis will miss the entire 2012-13 season all together. However, Davis has very visibly hung around the Knicks’ players and organization all summer. He...

New York Knicks’ Carmelo Anthony: A Man On an Island or a Team?

The Knicks can sign players and trade players, but the team will sink or swim with the game of Carmelo Anthony at the helm. I’m not saying he has to do it all, I actually think he needs to do less. Having trust in his teammates is über important. Not many stars can have that trust. Speaking of trust, Alan Iverson was one of those players that had a hard time trusting his teammates...

Carmelo Anthony Says **** You

….twice.   I think the Melo stans are dwindling day by day. His inability to simply get the job done down in New York has minimized his reputation to just a cat that can give you 20 points any given night but it stops there. And to win a chip in the NBA you need to bring more to the table. But he paid right?

Scal on the verge of becoming a coach

Boston loves Scal.  Of course, we didn’t always.  People tend to forget that early on in Scal’s tenure here, a lot of people hated him.  But they were under some impression that him popping wide open 3′s as a result of being set up by Jason Kidd would continue without him when he joined a crappy team.  People also tend to forget he was part of two losing seasons in Boston...
