Turn On The Knicks:
New York Knicks
When the Knicks went up 3-0 on the Celtics on Friday night, they gave themselves four straight chances to knock off their long-time nemesis, the current incarnation of which perhaps for good. Two of those chances have come, and the Knicks have whiffed twice.
After the Knicks lost Game 4, there was a lot of confidence among the Knicks and their fans that it was just a blip and things would be over soon. This likely was borne from the spinning of some of Game 4′s negatives into positives for the future. Thoughts like:
Carmelo was terrible, the Celtics hit a bunch of shots, J.R. Smith didn’t play, and the Celtics barely won. That won’t happen again.
Well Game 5 happened, and the Knicks are soon boarding a bus or plane or train and heading up to Boston for a Game 6 in which every available morsel of pressure is squarely on them. They’re heading back to the TD Garden, a place that is going to be completely engulfed in emotion, because many of the bad habits that reared their head in Ga...
BEST OF MAXIM
SOW YOUR OATS
During Game Six of the 2013 Eastern Conference NBA playoff game between the Celtics and Knicks, the fans at Boston’s TD Garden began taunting Carmelo Anthony with a chant of “Honey Nut Cheerios”. This chant is, of course, in reference to comments Kevin Garnett “allegedly” made about Carmelo’s wife, LaLa Vazquez. Good ol’ Boston, keeping it classy. Article found on...
What the Celtics have needed all season is to come together as a team, to move the ball and make the most of their talent, to not fall into ruts where other teams can feast on their weaknesses.
For many stretches this year, the Celtics could not do that. Then, even after they discovered how to play in such a way after losing Rajon Rondo to a season-ending injury, they stumbled again...
Jordan Crawford had another infamous DNP (Did Not Play, Coaches’ Decision), but he was running his mouth like he was Floyd Mayweather.
After the Knicks choked away Game 5, things got a little chippy as the teams left the court.
Now either Crawford said “MF F*ck Off or MF F*cked Your Wife”.
This is important because of the whole Kevin Garnett Honey Nut Cheerios situation last...
Dear J.R. Smith and Kenyon Martin,
Thanks for being complete overconfident, obnoxious idiots. Thanks for saying the stupidest things in the media. Thanks for whatever that did to your team tonight.
I want to specifically call out and thank J.R. Smith, the most generous of them all. Smith bemoaned earlier that the Knicks would've won Game 4 if he was not suspended...
Back in January, Boston Celtics forward Kevin Garnett made the term “Honey Nut Cheerios” into a whole new thing after he spent some time trash-talking Carmelo Anthony about his wife, La La Vazquez.
Flash-forward to today, Celtics fans decided to serenade Carmelo with those exact words as he made his way to the Knicks bench area during game six of their first-round playoff series...
After Jordan Crawford allegedly made a derogatory comment about his wife LaLa, Carmelo Anthony admitted his celebrity spouse has every right to be upset over being brought up repeatedly.
"I would be upset too if I were her," Anthony said on Friday. "She always gets thrown into the mix of the Boston Celtics series. So I would be upset. She's her own person and...
Having waited longer than he should have, the stink of his performance still lingering at Madison Square Garden, Carmelo Anthony appeared at last clad in black and wearing a smile as false and empty as his game.
The black stood for a funeral, but not the kind he and his tacky teammates had anticipated. It was a funeral for the idea Anthony has shed his postseason underachiever&...

Boston Celtics/New York Knicks: Game 5
- Before the game, Charles Barkley was saying how he wanted to root for the Celtics because of what J.R. Smith did to Jason Terry and how Smith was saying the Knicks would have swept if he was playing. I am going to jump on that bandwagon.
- I really would have thought Boston would come out strong in this game...
For those of you wondering, Boston Celtics guard Jordan Crawford didn’t play a single minute in game five against the New York Knicks but that didn’t start him from talking trash against some New York Knicks players.
After the horn sounded at Madison Square Garden, Crawford started jawing with Carmelo Anthony and Raymond Felton near the scorer’s table.
Thankfully for Jordan...
Chris Paul is 13-15 in the first round (through 5/1/13) and 16-23 overall in his four playoff appearances during his eight-season career. He’s only made it out of the first round TWICE and has never made a conference final. Only once has he lead a team to a seed higher than five and that year The post Should Chris Paul Be Considered The “Carmelo Anthony Of The West”? appeared...
New York eliminated Boston as Celtics fans chanted 'Honey Nuts Cheerios', trying to rattle Knicks superstar Carmelo Anthony.
I've found myself questioning why Danny Ainge would bring Jordan Crawford to Boston. The Boston Celtics are a franchise that prides themselves on great players who take responsibility for their actions both on, and off the court. As the Celtics made a decision to stay away from the pompous taunting tirades of their immature opponents, the seldom used Jordan Crawford shows his...
Carmelo on Jordan Crawford: "I’m not thinking about no Jordan Crawford. ... I don’t even think he deserves for you to be typing right now"
— Howard Beck (@HowardBeckNYT) May 2, 2013
I guess Carmelo learned something from last time. Personally I prefer the Knicks to be the talkers and the Celtics to get stuff done on the court, so I'm not a big fan of Crawford...
Tempers flared following the Celtics 92-86 win over the Knicks on Wednesday night as Jordan Crawford, Carmelo Anthony, D.J. White and Raymond Felton exchanged words. Crawford appeared to trash talk Carmelo Anthony on his way to the locker room which caused a reaction from Felton and White who then had to be restrained by teammates.
