Turn On The Knicks:
I didn’t do an “Uplifting things and disconcerting things” piece after the Knicks knocked the Celtics out on Friday night, partially because my Macbook charger randomly decided to stop working, and partially because there really wasn’t anything disconcerting at all about Friday night’s elimination of the hated Celtics, right? People told me there was something crazy that happened in the 4th quarter, but I don’t really remember that so I’m assuming nothing bad happened.
Yesterday the Knicks entered the second round of the playoffs for the first time in forever and it was a dud. Let’s take a look at how and why that happened before we delve into the Knicks’ task of avoiding a 2-0 deficit on Tuesday.
An uplifting thing: The offense of the Knicks’ starting backcourt, Raymond Felton and Iman Shumpert. If Shumpert scores in double digits with some level of efficiency, the Knicks should win more than they lose (provided they get from their top players what they should, which of course is ...
BEST OF MAXIM
Only in New York. While the Knicks performance on Sunday was certainly disgusting, it wasn’t the worst thing that Indiana Pacers center Roy Hibbert saw all weekend. While taking a cab to dinner on Saturday night in Manhattan, Hibbert happened to catch a woman who decided to pop a squat between to parked vehicles and go to the bathroom. I was in a cab on the way 2dinner 2night....
As we here at That NBA Lottery Pick have noted before, NBA players sometimes post the most hilarious and most random things to the social networking world of Twitter.
Yesterday, Pacers center Roy Hibbert was taking a cab to get some dinner and saw the rather bizarre sight of a woman kneeling on the side of the road apparently “dropping number two”.
Clearly, Roy felt the world...
The post Iman Shumpert’s Thunderous Dunk appeared first on Knickswag - A New York Knicks Blog - News, Rumors, and more!.
This is probably a good time to mention that Iman Shumpert and Derrick Rose tore their ACLs on the same day last year.
Shumpert, whose knee injury has healed much faster than Rose’s, showed just how healthy he is on Tuesday. In the second quarter of the Knicks’ game against the Pacers, Shumpert rose up to rebound a miss by Chris Copeland and threw down the putback dunk in one...
New York Knicks legend and MSG broadcaster, Bernard King, who also happens to be one of Carmelo Anthony’s favorite Knicks, took to Twitter following New York’s Game 1 loss against the Pacers Sunday to criticize Anthony and encourage him to move the ball and get his teammates involved more
“The Knicks MUST move the ball more and take the open shots – must stop heaving up...
The Pacers just kept firing away from beyond the arc, making Game 2 feel a little like seeing your dad wearing skinny jeans or watching your mom try to dance to J-Kwon. Aside from the personal embarrassment, the act was so out of character, it just felt wrong.
No matter how many 3-pointers the Pacers have put up in the first two games of their second-round playoff series against...
Wow! Just wow!
Knicks' Iman Shumpert got the crowd in MSG for Game 2 of their series versus the Pacers off their seats with an insane put-back dunk off a missed three-pointer in the second quarter.
To make matters worse for Indiana, they had three people under the basket and not one boxed out Iman. Not one! All that led to one amazing dunk which has to be ranked high in this...
One thing that I do know about the New York Post is the fact that they will provide a hilarious headline if the New York Knicks lose a playoff game.
Here is their take on Carmelo Anthony’s poor performance in headline form with a play on words with Cinco De Mayo:
MVP Vote: Post’s headline writer drops hilarious Carmelo line [Bob's Blitz]
It was widely expected that LeBron James would become the first unanimous NBA MVP this season. However, much like when the same was thought about Shaquille O'Neal back in 2000, he came up one vote short.
That one vote went to Carmelo Anthony of the New York Knicks (who came in third behind Kevin Durant and of course LeBron).
Being the curious bunch that we are, the world...
Carmelo Anthony scored 32 points, 16 during a 30-2 New York
onslaught in the second half, the Knicks beat the Indiana Pacers
105-79 on Tuesday night to even the Eastern Conference semifinals
at one game.
There are few things that I enjoy more than poster dunks and during tonight’s Pacers/Knicks game two, Carmelo Anthony threw down a rather nasty dunk.
It happened in the third quarter of play as Anthony got past David West and put down a nasty two-handed stuff in the face of Pacers forward Jeff Pendergraph:
The writer who did not choose LeBron James of the Miami Heat as the NBA's Most Valuable Player believes Carmelo Anthony ''meant more to his team'' this season.
Gary Washburn of The Boston Globe says Anthony made the New York Knicks relevant again by leading them to their first division title in nearly two decades. Washburn's explanation was published Monday...
Carmelo Anthony likes Eastern Conference playoff basketball, even the pounding and pain that goes with it.
The wide-open West was fun, with more scoring and less defense, and it certainly didn't hurt as much. But coming off his first series victory since leaving Denver - and his team's first in 13 years - he has adapted to the way it is on the other side.
And here comes...
The New York Knicks blew out the Indiana Pacers 105-79 on Tuesday night, evening their second round NBA playoff series at 1-1. Both teams looked wildly different than they did in Game 1, and no one played better than Knicks star Carmelo Anthony.
The 28-year-old Anthony scored 32 points, grabbed nine rebounds, dished out three assists and snagged two steals while adding one sick dunk...
