Last year Blake Griffin brought some spice back in to the Slam Dunk contest by jumping over a car while catching a pass from Baron Davis, who tossed it up threw the sun roof. Pretty cool stuff. Last year also gave us JaVale McGee dunking three balls on one rim and two balls on two different rims. My personal favorite was Serge Ibaka doing a windmill dunk while grabbing a teddy bear off the rim. Last year seemed like a great dunk contest. This year is either going to be really awesome or it is going to be really bad, and it is not because of this year's contestants. Indiana Pacers guard Paul George, Minnesota Timberwolves forward Derrick Williams, New York Knicks guard Iman Shumpert and Houston Rockets forward Chase Budinger will compete in this year's dunk contest. The NBA has a slight problem here in that there is a certain lack of star power in this year's contest. Only George is a regular starter, so to counteract that the league tore down the old format and came u...

Baron Davis pretends to smoke a joint after hitting a jumper (Picture)

Baron Davis has officially returned, folks. When he returned from injury, Davis was hoping he could rescue the Knicks back court and turn them into a contender. Jeremy Lin seems to have that situation covered. Maybe after he realized Lin had locked down New York’s point guard position, Baron started thinking about how he could celebrate hitting his first jump shot of the season...

Davis: Gesture was blowing a kiss, not smoking a joint

Baron Davis was annoyed at a couple of Internet websites for posting a still-picture from the MSG Network telecast yesterday that characterized him as pretending to smoke a joint to celebrate hitting his first bucket as a Knick. Davis tweeted and his agent Todd Ramasar confirmed to The Post that...

Here’s Baron Davis demonstrating his ‘One Toke Over The Line’ celebration (pic)

Of course, in basketball — as it is in life — one toke over the line is far preferable to one foot over the line. Well, maybe that’s just in basketball. And only on made three-pointers and free throw attempts. Huh. I suppose instead of trying to turn the above image into some kind of [...]

Davis’ underwhelming Knicks debut no threat to Linsanity

Mike D’Antoni had a chance to end a controversy before it began when Baron Davis made his Knicks debut last night at the Garden against the Nets. But, when the Knicks coach was asked whether he had talked to Davis about understanding his redefined role within the Linsanity surrounding...

The Starting Lineup: Baron Davis Makes Season Debut. You Would’ve Cared Three Weeks Ago.

One game into his stint, Baron Davis has already set a Knicks record: His #85 is the highest ever to be worn by a New York Knickerbocker.  First-ballot HOFer.  Seriously, though, I thought Baron looked alright last night.  I don’t even know what his stats were–I recall a three-pointer and some poor defense on Deron Williams–but none of that even matters yet.  I’ll tell...

SB Nation NY: How The 2012 Knicks Compare to The 04-05 Phoenix Suns

How do the 2012 Knicks stack up to D'Antoni's best team--the 2004-2005 Pheonix Suns? Somehow over the last month, the Knicks have slowly evolved into the league’s most complete team. Baron Davis will likely make his debut this week as the backup point guard and the Knicks future rests on how well Carmelo Anthonyintegrates into the new-look Knicks offense and whether...

Mavericks-Knicks Preview

After experiencing his first loss as an NBA starter, New York Knicks point guard Jeremy Lin might get some help. There's at least a slight chance that Baron Davis and J.R. Smith could be added to the rotation Sunday afternoon when New York hosts the Dallas Mavericks, who will try to add to both their longest winning streak of the season and their recent mastery of the Knicks...

Melo doubtful today for mending Knicks

Carmelo Anthony probably will not return from a strained right groin today against the Mavericks, though tomorrow against the Nets is a possibility. But Baron Davis and newly signed J.R. Smith might dress today, and should join the rotation in the next few days.“Melo, probably not, and [tomorrow...
