Found May 04, 2013 on Turn On The Knicks:
On a team featuring one of the league’s best scorers in Carmelo Anthony, a former Defensive Player of the Year in Tyson Chandler, the reigning Sixth Man of the Year in J.R. Smith, and a future first ballot Hall of Famer in Jason Kidd, it was the kid that Coach Woodson still calls “Rook” that stepped up to help bury the Celtics. To get by Indiana, New York will need more of the same from Iman Shumpert. It is hard for New Yorkers to grasp most of the time, but patience is ever so key during the grind known as the NBA season. Knicks management could have went any one of a thousand different directions when assembling this roster during Iman Shumpert’s recovery from an ACL tear, but the patience they exhibited deserves all the credit in the world. It all started last summer, when the apparent goal was to put together a win now team. At this point in time, we all thought that Shumpert and Jeremy Lin were the backcourt of the future, but only the strongest survived. The Knicks were the f...

Why Iman Shumpert Will Serve As X-Factor For Knicks Against the Pacers

Smith, milking them both for all they've got.As the Knicks know quite well, such a strategy still leaves...

Celtics fans chant “Honey Nut Cheerios” at Carmelo Anthony

Back in January, Boston Celtics forward Kevin Garnett made the term “Honey Nut Cheerios” into a whole new thing after he spent some time trash-talking Carmelo Anthony about his wife, La La Vazquez.

Knicks nearly blow huge lead, survive

Leave it to the Knicks to be up 26 points in the fourth quarter of a playoff game and nearly blow it. A 75-49 cruise became a dogfight in the blink of an eye Friday night, with New York barely holding on to advance to the second round in the least celebratory way possible. The Celtics went on a 20-0 run in the fourth quarter, despite having amassed just 49 points in the game up...

Carmelo Anthony Admits Wife Should Be Upset

After Jordan Crawford allegedly made a derogatory comment about his wife LaLa, Carmelo Anthony admitted his celebrity spouse has every right to be upset over being brought up repeatedly.

You stay classy Boston; Celtics eliminated as fans chant ‘Honey Nut Cheerios’

New York eliminated Boston as Celtics fans chanted 'Honey Nuts Cheerios', trying to rattle Knicks superstar Carmelo Anthony.

Jordan Crawford continues taunting Carmelo Anthony, clearly not a representation of the Boston Celtics!

I've found myself questioning why Danny Ainge would bring Jordan Crawford to Boston. The Boston Celtics are a franchise that prides themselves on great players who take responsibility for their actions both on, and off the court. As the Celtics made a decision to stay away from the pompous taunting tirades of their immature opponents, the seldom used Jordan Crawford shows his...

Notes From Game 1: Pacers Stifle The Knicks

New series, same old story. You can finesse the narrative however you want, it boils down to the cold hard facts: Carmelo Anthony's name may as well be Buck, and he comes to chuck. If he's hitting, the Knicks are reeeeally hard to beat (he was basically NBA Jams "On FIRE" for his 10 games in April, averaging 36.9 ppg on 53.6% shooting, including a mind melting...

The Day After – May 6, 2013 edition

Happy Monday to all. Lebron was officially named as the Most Valuable Player. We all know this was imminent and likely. What was the question is whether he will be the first unanimous one. Unfortunately, he wasn’t. He was close, though, as he snagged all but one first-place vote. The Akron native thought it was a NY-based person who gave the dissenting vote, since that lone vote...

Trash talk, bad blood reign in NBA playoffs

(Eds: Adds details and quotes. With AP Photos.) By JON KRAWCZYNSKI AP Basketball Writer Talk is cheap in these NBA playoffs, and it seems as if everyone wants in on the act. As the stakes grew in the first round, the venom being spewed became ever more toxic. Superstars are jawing at bench players. Reserves are picking fights with superstars.
