Rasheed Wallace is back in the NBA and so is his mouth. On Tuesday night during the New York Knicks’ win over the Orlando Magic, Rasheed threw a bit of minor heckling toward Orlando’s Arron Afflalo as Afflalo was attempting a free throw in the first quarter.

With the amount of microphones they put on the court these days, NBA viewers are subjected to a new level of intimacy with the players, coaches and even the refs. You get the occasional “F-Bomb,” some insight into coaching strategy and, best of all, some trash talk.

I kind of like the nickname Aflac...
J.R. Smith is enjoying a stretch in which he is playing the best basketball of his career. He’s currently averaging 18.2 points per game this season, which is second on the club trailing only Carmelo Anthony. This morning when asked about head coach Mike Woodson calling Smith “more professional,” J.R. gave the reason why: he’s not partying as much. Smith said:
The Knicks are currently off to their best start since the 93 season. Their current record is 5-0 with their latest victory taking place against the magic, 99-89. It was a tight first half but the Knicks pulled away in the fourth led by Carmelo Anthony’s 25 points and J.R. Smith came off the bench [...]
A cheerleader and stunt team member is in stable condition after falling on her head during a performance at an Orlando Magic game.
In a statement released by the Magic on Wednesday, the family of 31-year-old Jamie Woode says she suffered three vertebrae fractures and a broken rib. But there were no signs of neurological damage and she's expected to make a full recovery.
The struggling Orlando Magic expect one of the two starters injured in their first contest to return for the opener of a three-game trip.
It appears the other will be sidelined longer than originally believed.
Mired in a five-game losing streak, the Magic hope Jameer Nelson's return can provide a spark Friday night against a Detroit Pistons team looking to build on its first...
