The US Men's basketball team is off to London (and they don't have to worry about any economy-class tickets neither) on their charter flight. Some of the superstars on-board, like Carmelo Anthony, took the opportunity to catch a few z's, but just because one is asleep doesn't mean it isn't important to still look good. Carmelo does just that with the rare (but...

While ESPN’s NBA experts and their “SOURCES! WE HAVE SOURCES!” are suggesting that the New York Knicks will simply let Jeremy Lin walk to the Houston Rockets, there is still chatter that their decision has not been made. The reason that the Knicks would let Lin just go to...
We completely understood what Carmelo Anthony was saying when he called Jeremy Lin’s offer from Houston “ridiculous”. The fact of the matter is the contract offer is and was ridiculous.
