Nets rookie's jumper was horrific, but was it as bad as these plays?

By now, you might have already seen what some are calling one of the most horrendous three-point attempts in the history of the NBA. In case you missed it, witness Brooklyn Nets first-year forward Cory Jefferson's airball vs. the Chicago Bulls -- a shot so bad that it may or may not have been a pass attempt. Hard to say for sure. You tell us: Whoa. In honor of that stinker, we've...

Tank Tuesday—December 9/Emmanuel Mudiay edition

Whether or not the Knicks are overtly tanking, they are losing a whole lot. The thing with these Knicks though is that, so far, they have been entertaining tankers. They keep fighting back, cutting deficits down, finding themselves in games late, often against good teams, too. They aren’t going out there and getting their doors blown off every night (yet). However, there are a...

How do we fix the Knicks?

I haven’t written about the New York Knicks much this season, because to be honest, I’m at loss for words.  The more the Knicks lose, the more I get in my feelings. So you can imagine how emo I’m feeling as the Knicks officially hit rock bottom and wracked up their 18th loss.  After losing to the Portland Trail Blazers, 103-99, the Knicks’ 4-18 record set a new franchise...
