TIM HARDAWAY RUMORS & GOSSIP
Andre Drummond saved his best rebound for last. Really, for after the game.
Drummond was awarded the BBVA Compass Rising Stars Challenge MVP trophy, but there was some assembly required. As the BBVA Compass representative handed it to him, the star fell off its base and hit the floor. Tim Hardaway Jr. stole the mic and dubbed it an ESPN Not Top 10 Play.
Indeed it was. But...
The NBA trade deadline is approaching rapidly, which means that teams are starting to separate the guys they have deemed expendable with those they’d rather hang on to. The New York Knicks look to be interested in making a deadline deal to land a nice piece, but they seem to have little to offer and even less after the latest report from Marc Berman.

The BBVA Rising Stars Challenge this year was one for the ages. From Jared Sullinger knocking down triples, to Tim Hardaway Jr. and Dion Waiters having a shootout, to Andre Drummond pulling down 25 boards, this was one of the most exciting basketball games of the season, even if it didn’t count. Here are some of the highlights of the night:
From earlier: Anthony Davis throws...
Cleveland's Dion Waiters scored 31 points for Team Hill in Friday night's NBA Rising Stars Challenge.
Most of Waiters' points came during a 1-on-1 duel with Tim Hardaway Jr. in the second half.
Waiters probably made teammate Kyrie Irving proud, especially when he got the best of Knicks rookie on this play, breaking Hardaway's ankles on a sneaky crossover.
Tim Hardaway Jr. decided to have a little fun during the Rising Stars Challenge (or whatever the heck they call that game) on Friday night in New Orleans. While standing in the free throw line, he reached to untie the shoelaces of opponent Andre Drummond. No doubt he learned the move from his knuckleheaded teammate […]
J.R. Smith will be proud. Tim Hardaway Jr. took a page out his teammates playbook Friday night during the Rising Stars Challenge as he pretended to untie opponent Andre Drummond’s sneakers during a foul shot. The post Tim Hardaway Jr. Pulls A J.R. Smith, Pretends To Untie Andre Drummond’s Shoes (Video) appeared first on Beyond The Buzzer.
Waiters and Hardaway Jr. went at it for about a two-minute stretch, but the Philly kid won the war when he dropped Hardaway Jr with a crossover, allowed him to gather himself and then sank a deep three.
The animation of James Harden and Kevin Durant make the exchange that much better.
The Rising Stars Challenge during All-Star Weekend is the event that showcases the best young players throughout the NBA.
It is an event that gives players opportunities to put on a show and let everyone know who they are.
Tonight, in the 2nd half of the game Tim Hardaway Jr. and Dion Waiters were putting on a show, going back and form scoring on either ends. At one point, Waiters...
Knicks Tim Hardaway Jr. and Cavs Dion Waiters broke off into a little 1-on-1 three point battle during the Rising Stars Challenge Friday night. It all started after Waiters dropped Hardaway to the floor with a crossover and drained a 3. The two exchanged a number of deep shots back and forth and it was highly entertaining – especially for All-Stars Kevin Durant and James Harden...
