New York Post columnist Phil Mushnick has a reputation for stirring up a variety of controversies during his career in the writing world. Mushnick may have topped even himself with his comments today. In his column posted this morning on the Post's website, Mushnick posted something that was so ridiculous that I had to go back and read it a few times to makes sure I read things correctly. Alas, sadly, I had:
"As long as the Nets are allowing Jay-Z to call their marketing shots — what a shock that he chose black and white as the new team colors to stress, as the Nets explained, their new “urban” home — why not have him apply the full Jay-Z treatment?
Why the Brooklyn Nets when they can be the New York N------s? The cheerleaders could be the Brooklyn B----hes or Hoes. Team logo? A 9 mm with hollow-tip shell casings strewn beneath. Wanna be Jay-Z hip? Then go all the way!"
Really? This isn't on some 15 year-old's blog, this is on the website of one of New York&...

Down 3-0, New York will need another May miracle to come back and beat Miami. At least the guy who had the greatest moment for the Knicks is offering his support.
Center Willis Reed, forever famous for limping out May 8, 1970, on a bad knee to help lead the Knicks to a Game 7 Finals win over the Lakers, is watching the East first-round series from his home outside Grambling, La...
Knicks coach Mike Woodson said he feels as though Carmelo Anthony needs to be in better shape heading into next season for New York to be successful.
Amare Stoudemire learned the hard way that you can't punch glass and get away with it. It was a tough lesson to learn, but it could have been a lot worse. The Knicks big man tweeted out a photo of his stitched-up hand, just a few days after severing it while punching a glass fire extinguisher case following Game 2 of the Knicks' series with the Miami Heat. "A millimeter...
Earlier today, New York Knicks star Amare Stoudemire decided to share a photo via his Twitter page of his injured left hand.
Stodemire injured his hand after punching a fire extinguisher at American Airlines Arena in game two of the Miami Heat/New York Knicks playoff series.
The below photo is not for the squeamish but safe for work:

As you may figure, once the good folks over at Next Media Animation caught wind of the Amare Stoudemire fire extinguisher punching incident, there would be an awesome video about it.Below is the spoils of their labor:
Unfortunately for fans of Kevin Harlan, one of the best announcers at calling exciting plays has been hampered by calling a lot of blowouts so far in this year's playoffs. The NBA's first round hasn't quite matched the drama of their NHL counterparts. Anyways, with the lack of exciting basketball (see Knicks/Heat last night) Harlan hasn't really been able to let...
Supermodel Kate Upton was at Madison Square Garden Thursday night to watch the hometown New York Knicks battle the Miami Heat and was the featured guest during MSG Network's halftime segment, "Live from Celebrity Row" with Jill Martin.
Kate Upton answered questions about her fans and Twitter followers, but did not make any reference to her "Cat Daddy"...
For the first time in three years, Brooklyn Nets Orlando Magic center Dwight Howard failed to win the NBA’s Defensive Player of the Year Award, which I am just going to assume he’s blaming on Stan Van Gundy. Instead, this year’s honor went to New York Knicks center Tyson Chandler, because when you think of the Knicks, you think of defense.
And that’s the kind of easy joke...
The Knicks have lost 13 straight playoff games dating back to April 29th 2001 – so roughly 11 years. Hard to imagine when you think about how they constantly refer to their home arena as “The Mecca of basketball.”
I actually wanted this Knick team to be good. It really started to seem like Carmelo was ready to take that next step
He was getting genuinely excited during games...
After punching a fire extinguisher because he was mad that Carmelo took 26 shots and he only took 9 the Heat beat his Knicks 104-94 to take a 2-0 lead in the series, Amar'e Stoudemire is saying he might be able to come back for Game Four. Not Game Three tonight, first of all, where he will have to sit out because he punched a fire extinguisher, but Game Four on Sunday. The reason...
The New York Knicks, currently struggling through a variety of issues ranging from injuries to anger management to flawed construction, haven’t come within nine points of a playoff win in their last five tries. With Thursday night’s 17-point loss to LeBron James and the Miami Heat, the ‘Bockers dropped their 13th consecutive postseason game, a new NBA record. The...
