>=( Basketball can be a divisive game, but from Larry Brown Sports comes a story we can all enjoy — a guy spends thousands of dollars on front row seats to Wednesdays Knicks/Nets game in New Jersey, decides he’d rather text than pay attention to what’s happening on the court and catches a Tyson Chandler pass to the face. Full video is below. “Who hit you in the face with a ball?” “IDK, my BFF Jill?” ESPN takes it to a stupid place (“we’re gonna have to take your MAN CARD!”, as if women are always texting and getting hit in the face with basketballs) but there’s so much to enjoy … his face after getting hit, the fact that he never actually looks at what’s happening on the court even when he’s been struck by something flying in from it, the woman’s explanatory reaction, his T-shirt that says “TALK” in what looks like the YouTube logo, and my favorite part, how he goes right back to texting like nothing happened. I hope the last text he sent was, “brb basketball hitting

Does Mike Bibby Deserve a Chance to Start for Knicks?

In last night's 118-110 Knicks win over the Celtics, Mike Bibby quietly recorded one of his better outings since he signed with New York.Amongst four different twenty-plus point performances by his teammates, Bibby filled in for Baron Davis (who sat much of the game with a stomach bug), dishing out 6 assists in 27 points, committing no turnovers. What's more, the veteran...

Stoudemire back in Knicks lineup

Knicks forward Amare Stoudemire is back in New York's lineup after missing 13 games with a back injury. Stoudemire hasn't played since March 24, but he'll start Friday night as the Knicks, who already have wrapped up a playoff spot, visit the Cavaliers. The Knicks went 9-4 without Stoudemire, who is averaging 17.6 points and 8.0 rebounds. Stoudemire, who had a bulging...

Barkley on Knicks: They 'still stink'

Charles Barkley talked Knicks on WFAN-Radio on Thursday morning, which is to say Charles Barkley bashed the Knicks on Thursday morning. The opinionated TNT analyst was often critical of Mike D'Antoni's defensive coaching ability, but the coach resigning has done nothing to soften Barkley's opinion of the team. "The Knicks still stink, dude," Barkley said on...

Knicks Make It Rain in Win Over Celtics

Carmelo Anthony has steadily been making his case for "Eastern Conference Player of the Month," carrying the Knicks on his back in the absence of other key contributors.It can't be denied that as he leads New York towards the playoffs, that Anthony is living up to his superstar reputation. Last night, Paul Pierce and the Celtics looked to put an end to Anthony's...

Davis out with illness, Bibby starts for Knicks

Baron Davis missed the Knicks' game at New Jersey on Wednesday night because of a stomach virus and was replaced in the starting lineup by Mike Bibby. Davis was feeling ill Tuesday and played only 18 minutes of the Knicks' 118-110 victory over Boston. He has been the starter since Jeremy Lin was lost to knee surgery, despite battling a hamstring injury. Bibby played 27...

Carmelo Anthony Should Stop Stealing Houston Nutt's Ideas

Carmelo Anthony understands that as a wealthy Manhattanite, it's important to keep things at home fresh, modern, and artistic, all with a touch of class.  According to his wife, he really seems to enjoy wading into the world of interior decorating to make sure things at home are as they should be for the star player of the New York Knicks. That's why, at some point while...


Stoudemire is apparently feeling his “new look” cornrows. Here I thought the D’Angelo period ended years ago. AMARÉ STOUDEMIRE’s bad back apparently hasn’t sidelined his swag. The New York Knicks six-foot-ten fashion forward is sporting a new look—cornrows—while living the pampered life of an NBA superstar. I give you Exhibit A… A wocka flocka females!! Well alrighty...

Box Score: Cavaliers 98, Knicks 90

I’m betting this version of the New York Knicks would prefer to never enter Quicken Loans Arena again. The Knicks lost their 10th straight in The Q as the Cavaliers looked much more focused and determined against a playoff team that had plenty more to lose. Kyrie Irving shook some rust off and finished with  21 points on 6-of-15 shooting, while Manny Harris added 19 points and...


We'll see if Smith & Novak (Zen Brothers) can keep their shot going tonight Deron is out with an injury (allegedly he has tank-itus). Hump will be tough on the Boards as he's been excellent all year in this category. We can't let Brooks or Green get hot as both can be elite scorers. Green is showing that he can do a bit more then scoring. So I wonder how...

Can The New York Knicks Imitate The 2011 Dallas Mavericks?

Before March 26, Carmelo Anthony was enduring the worst season of his NBA career. It appeared things would only get worse as Amare Stoudemire was sidelined as a result of another lingering back issue. Since then, the Knicks forward has been scorching hot and the Knicks are surging at a blistering pace. In his last three games, Anthony has scored 42 against the Miami Heatles, contributed a

Carmelo Anthony "Melo" parody

Here is a creative and witty music video for Carmelo Anthony based on the old Lionel Richie classic "Hello" song.

Knicks-Nets Preview

For the last 35 years, the New York Knicks have had to cross the Hudson River to play road games against the New Jersey Nets. When the series resumes next season, they'll be crossing the East River. Hoping to build on an impressive offensive showing, the Knicks will make their final trip to New Jersey to face the Nets on Wednesday night. After falling 93-85 to Miami on Sunday...
