Found August 28, 2012 on Red's Army:
Boston loves Scal.  Of course, we didn’t always.  People tend to forget that early on in Scal’s tenure here, a lot of people hated him.  But they were under some impression that him popping wide open 3′s as a result of being set up by Jason Kidd would continue without him when he joined a crappy team.  People also tend to forget he was part of two losing seasons in Boston before the Kevin Garnett/Ray Allen trades that turned Scal into a loveable human victory cigar. Scal was never “terrible.”  Scal is a fundamentally sound player who does everything the right way… he just lacks the physical tools to execute a lot of the things he wants… or used to be able to do.  But he does have a pretty solid knowledge of the game.  It’s why Doc would often stick Scal in the starting line up when KG went down because while he would never do a ton for you on the floor, he wasn’t going to make stupid mistakes and he’d do everything he could to spring other players for open shots and play intense def

Should Knicks Start Jason Kidd Over Raymond Felton?

Jeremy Lin won't be making a return to the Big Apple next season, but Raymond Felton will be. After leading the Nets to back to back NBA Finals appearances in 2002 and 2003, Jason Kidd will also make a return to the tri-state area as he too dons orange and blue for the Knicks this fall.With two quality point guards ready to compete for major minutes, is it obvious which one should...

Jason Kidd Might Still Be Capable of Helping Carmelo Anthony, Amare Stoudemire Coexist With Knicks

At 39 years old, Jason Kidd probably is not looking to become the next great New York Knicks point guard. Eighteen years into his NBA career, Kidd would be content to merely help the Knicks' apparently incompatible stars find a way to play together. And that could make him the perfect conductor of an otherwise dysfunctional orchestra. The Knicks were a mess last season, as they...

Steve Nash vs. Jason Kidd: Who’s better?

  I can vividly remember playing pickup basketball as a kid. I was horrible back then. I had no athletic ability; I couldn’t jump, run or shoot.  The best attribute of my game was passing simply because I had no other options.  I can remember listening to guys shoot the ball, yelling “Kobe” as the ball goes through the net.  I used to wish that I had that ability.  I practiced...

Jason Kidd calls Rajon Rondo best point guard in the NBA

Jason Terry signed as a free agent to be a Boston Celtic for this upcoming season. In doing so he left the Dallas Mavericks, the team he had been with his whole career. Terry is leaving one great point guard to play with another. His former point guard Jason Kidd had some very high praise for Terry’s new point guard Rajon Rondo. Kidd also left Dallas and will now be...

Knicks' Carmelo Anthony wants team to have a gold-medal mindset

New York Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony told the New York Post that he wants the team to have the same mentality Team USA had during its gold-medal winning effort at the London Olympics.   “I’m excited to get this thing going,” Anthony said. “Especially coming off this run we just had with the USA team. To be able to put that team together and still be able to accomplish...

The NBA offseason has reached the utmost of slow points of the summer, but luckily for the Knicks, the team can rest assured knowing the roster is more or less set for the upcoming season.Despite allowing Jeremy Lin to sign with the Rockets, thus ending "Linsanity" in the Big Apple, Knicks' General Manager Glen Grunwald still did a masterful job filling out the team...
