Turn On The Knicks Throwback Thursday – Knicks-Raptors 2001 NBA Playoffs

It’s not playoff time yet, but with the Knicks needing every win they can get down the stretch, it might as well be. If Toronto takes care of the New York tomorrow, it won’t be the first time that the team is sent packing by the Raptors. 2001 was the 14th consecutive season that the New York Knicks made the playoffs. However, for the first time in as many years, they entered...

Hey Everyone, Come See How Unique And Original Dennis Rodman Is!

Former NBA players like Gary Payton, Vin Baker, Latrell Sprewell and Charles Smith played in an exhibition basketball game at Luna Park in Argentina over the weekend, as the one-time American pros faced off against some streetball legends much to the delight of the crowd.

Turn On The Knicks Throwback Thursday – February 20th Edition

Carmelo Anthony set an All-Star Game record by sinking eight three-pointers on Sunday night. He also tied the New York Knicks franchise record for treys in a game last season, when he knocked down nine against the Atlanta Hawks. Three others have reached that mark for New York, including John Starks and Latrell Sprewell. The fourth player might surprise you. John Starks (January...

Iowa State's DeAndre Kane making the most of his second chance

In practice, a decade ago, the Mayor would match up with Spree. They were shooting guards for the Timberwolves and they were Midwesterners. Their biographies diverged from there. Fred Hoiberg, the backup, was an archetypal sharpshooter and a hero back in his hometown. The write-in votes he received in Ames's 1993 mayoral election while he was starring for Iowa State inspired...

Warriors’ David Lee Not Chosen for All-Star Game

Last season, David Lee was chosen to represent the Golden State Warriors in the NBA All-Star Game, the first Warrior to be named an All-Star since Latrell Sprewell in 1997. However, many were upset at the fact that his teammate, Stephen Curry, was left off the roster. It’s the exact opposite situation this season. Curry was selected to start the All-Star Game — the first Warrior...

Stephen Curry Named to Western Conference All-Star Team as Starter

For the first time since Latrell Sprewell in 1995, the Golden State Warriors have a player named by the fans as a starter in the All-Star game. On the strength of his season averages of 23.5 points, 9.2 assists and 4.6 rebounds to go with 1.88 steals and 37.9 minutes in 40 games, Stephen Curry will make his first appearance in the NBA All-Star game on February 16 in New Orleans...

Turn On The Knicks Throwback Thursday – January 2nd Edition

With tonight’s Knicks-Spurs matchup in mind, I think a visit back to the 1999 NBA Finals is in order. These teams have gone in total opposite directions since meeting in the NBA Finals more than 15 years ago. While San Antonio has steamrolled over the last decade, winning three more championships and quietly building a powerhouse around Tim Duncan and Gregg Popovic, New York has...

Knicks Talk: Worst Knicks Trades

By Charles R.

Kanye West Uses a Latrell Sprewell Line to Describe Move From NIKE to adidas

I don’t pay too much attention or get worked up over anything Kanye West says. He’s an entertainer and an attention *****, his persona is about getting people to talk about him. So of course he is going to be over the top with everything, that is what makes him money. I don’t think he even believes 80% of what he says, but sometimes the character takes over the real person...

The 10 Scariest New York Knicks of the Last 25 Years

Ghosts, zombies, and witches are scary and all, but to fans of the New York Knicks, things like J.R. Smith’s shot selection and the size of Amar’e Stoudemire’s contract are equally terrifying. The Knicks have always been known as intimidators, especially since the 90′s, when there was no such thing as an easy bucket. Read on to see some of the most horrifying Knicks of the...

Turn On The Knicks Throwback Thursday – September 26th Edition

Starting last season, the inside collar of all New York Knicks jerseys read “Once A Knick, Always A Knick.” Judging by the way they move players around, this statement couldn’t be any further from the truth. Unfortunately, it sometimes means that legendary Knicks are forced to suit up as an opponent in Madison Square Garden. This was perfectly exemplified when a certain number...

David Lee Player Profile

David Lee should be on this list for the simple fact that Golden State fans don’t have to hold on to Latrell Sprewell being the last Warrior to be an all-star anymore. Lee finished the 2012-2013 season putting up 18.5 pts/game, 11.2 rebs/game, shooting an average of 52 percent from the field in the 79 games he played. In addition to his impressive numbers on the offensive end,...

Your Morning Dump… Where history is not on the side of Brad Stevens

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big storyline. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump.

We Should All Be Rooting for the Golden State Warriors

If you haven’t noticed, the Golden State Warriors v. San Antonio Spurs series has been fascinating. And, we’re only two games in to it. It is not because it involves the Spurs. Let’s face it; these are the same old boringly-consistent Spurs that keep on winning with the core of Duncan, Parker, Ginobili and Poppovich. Since the 01-02 season, they have won at least 50 games every...

NBA Shockers

One closet door flew off its hinges when an active player said, "I'm a 34-year-old NBA center. I'm black. And I'm gay." The last sentence defines the sort of fan you are.

KG vs. Duncan: Who’s had the better career?

When I first considered this comparison, the answer was clear: Duncan is the better player. He has been the most consistent and fundamentally solid player in the last 20 years. But as I thought about it, I realized Garnett is dynamic in a way that Duncan has never been and will never be. Duncan will hit 8 out of 10 hook shots off the backboard, but he will never be the rebounding...
