Aaron Rodgers may have been the first athlete to execute what is now known as the “Discount Double Check” celebration during a game, but New York Knicks forward Steve Novak has taken it onto the basketball court. Last season, Novak started doing the title belt celebration when sinking three-pointers. On Friday night, Nate Robinson decided to borrow the move after hitting two threes in the Chicago Bulls’ win over the Knicks. After the game, Novak was asked for his reaction to Robinson doing the belt celebration. “Oh man it warms my heart,” Novak said. “It really does. The best part about doing the belt is hearing the stories of all the little kids around the world that hit a three-pointer and do the belt. You know, one day when little Nathan grows up I hope his dreams come true and he can be just like me.” Wait a second — Novak may have been the first to start doing the move in the NBA, but Rodgers still started it.

Hawks-Bulls Preview

While the Chicago Bulls have enjoyed some big wins on the road lately, they haven't been able to match that success at home. The Atlanta Hawks are hoping that trend continues as they look to move past their recent road struggles.

POTD 1/10/13: DeMarcus Cousins on Bernard James

Today happens to be one of those days where I wish I could choose two winners, as both JR Smith and DeMarcus Cousins are entirely deserving of this particular POTD.  Each player threw down one of two remarkable slam dunks that, although very different, are almost equally impressive.  Smith took flight from the fringe of the painted area and, having launched off of his right foot...

Hornets-Knicks Preview

A visit from one of the Western Conference's worst teams would appear to give the New York Knicks a prime opportunity to snap a season-high skid. The New Orleans Hornets, though, arrive at Madison Square Garden riding their longest win streak of the season, and Greivis Vasquez along with a healthier Eric Gordon have played significant roles in that run. The Hornets' backcourt...
