New York Knicks

Golden State Warriors
On February 6, the shorthanded New York Knicks topped the Utah Jazz at home. The team’s two best players were inactive, dealing with various issues ranging from personal to health. The hero of the day — and subsequent weeks — was a hardwood vagabond, a scrappy guard who had been bounced from multiple NBA franchises, left to trudge through the murk and muck of the NBDL.
Jeremy Lin, the first American-born NBA player of Chinese or Taiwanese descent, was the protagonist of the ultimate professional sports narrative. Player left for dead on the end of a 15-man roster, cast aside for reasons beyond comprehension, endearing squatters rights on the couches and guest bedrooms of friends, only to shock the world by displaying a skill set that only he had known of or at least been confident in. Injury leads to opportunity and the box score fills up like a hole-laden boat. Headlines soon follow as the spectacle of a D-League player providing such excitement, transcending across fans of all fra...

CLEVELAND -- Random observations from the Cavaliers 103-90 win over Charlotte on Tuesday at The Q:
1. Lester Hudson. Those are two words Cavs fans are saying with an exclamation point after watching the 6-foot-3 guard total 51 points in his previous two games. That included a game-high 25 points against the awful Bobcats.
2. What makes this more impressive is how Hudson has done...
Even though Linsanity has died off, that’s not going to stop Hollywood from cashing in on the story of Jeremy Lin.
According to a person familiar with the pitch who was not authorized to talk about it publicly, the movie (no firm title yet, so let your pun-riddled imagination run wild) looks both at Lin’s unlikely run in the NBA as well at his humble background. Los Angeles...
There’s something about an unsung hero that makes winning extremely satisfying.
Maybe it’s the surprise of it all. Maybe it’s the out-of-the-blue extraordinary performances that are displayed by the unexpected—for a team that’s unexpected.
Allowing these unsung heroes to prove themselves is the only pot that the Cleveland Cavaliers can really pick from these days since...
I will be doing an interactive Twitter Q+A using questions from #Cavs fans later on tonight with Cavaliers phenom Lester Hudson, so tweet @ me a good question to #AskLester and I will ask him. Try to to make the question something you don't think people will already be asking him, use a little creativity, and if it's a solid question I will ask him and use it in the Q+A that...
Jason WhitneyIt is finally here; a Jeremy Lin documentary! The Los Angeles Times reports that the New York Knicks guard will be the subject of a documentary that is being shopped by CAA. The film is expected to cover Lin’s athletic career, his upbringing in California and his life at Harvard. According to the Times: The Lin doc [...]Sports-Kings - The Kings of Sports Lists
Maybe there’s something to this whole Lesanity thing after all?
The Cavaliers took a lead into halftime, then came out cold in the 2nd half and saw the Bobcats come back and take the lead. From there, Lester Hudson took over. With Cavs owner Dan Gilbert sitting in with Fred and AC in the TV broadcast, Lester once again showed his boss why he belongs on the Cavaliers roster.
Sunday evening provided excellence of all shapes and sizes. Beautiful outdoor venues and empty arena seats. Pine needle-based approaches and game-saving three-pointers. Leader boards and lottery balls. Consonants and vowels.

Line of the Night/ Waiver Wire Line of the Night: There was an insane triple-double last night and some dude grabbed 30 boards, but neither of those games was the best fantasy line of the night. Instead, waiver wire champion Danny Green (2.61 WARP) finished with 22 points, hitting 5-6 from three and 7-11 from the field, with 2 steals, 2 blocks and 0 turnovers. If that sounds like...
CLEVELAND (AP) -- Lester Hudson scored 25 points, including 14 in the fourth quarter, and the Cleveland Cavaliers beat the Charlotte Bobcats 103-90 on Tuesday night.
Anthony Parker, who missed the two previous games with a bruised sternum, scored 19 points while Antawn Jamison added 17 for Cleveland.
Gerald Henderson led Charlotte with 21 points. Rookie Kemba Walker scored 20 while...

Carmelo Anthony continued to cement his legacy as the holiday hero, propelling the Knicks to a stunning 100-99 victory over the Bulls on Easter Sunday.In what was arguably Anthony's greatest performance as a Knick to date, the Brooklyn native's season-high 43 points proved he is ready for the challenge of having to carry the team on his own, without the likes of Amar'...
Whether you believe the Indiana Pacers are for real or not, the fact is right now the Pacers are the 3 seed in the Eastern Conference. With the Cavaliers playing the 2nd night of a back to back, this was sure to be a tough challenge for the young Cavs team.
The Cavaliers came out and showed tremendous fight in this game. For most of the contest, this was a closely contested game...
The New York Knicks pulled out a thrilling overtime win against the Chicago Bulls yesterday and if this team remains as the eighth seed in the Eastern Conference playoffs, then they will need as much firepower they can have if they want any chance at upsetting the Bulls.
It is bad enough that New York lost Jeremy Lin for the season and that Amar'e Stoudemire is day-to-day with...
Iman Shumpert is almost falling into the clichéd story of guys who were told they wouldn’t succeed and then showed up the world by proving them all wrong. I’m not going to say the New York Knicks rookie guard is a raving success, but he has done better than most people thought, and he’s definitely on his way.
When he decided to forego his senior season at Georgia Tech and...
With the season winding down, the New York Knicks and Milwaukee Bucks both recognize the importance of their final meeting as they fight for the last playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.
Trying to hold off the Bucks, the Knicks will look to prevent them from taking the season series when the teams meet Wednesday night in Milwaukee.
One game separates Milwaukee (28-29) from eighth...
