Giants to let Tuck walk?

After this years disappointing performance the New York Giants are going to need to make some wholesale changes, especially on the defensive side of the ball. Many complain about the secondary but one of the main problems is that their defensive line has gotten old and bad, very fast and that’s the strength of the defense.

Matt Flynn moving on?

Matt Flynn was one of the big prizes in last years free agency class and a prize that the Seattle Seahawks won.

VIDEO: New ‘Lob’ City

The New York Knicks must have been practicing the alley-oop on their days off lately. I say this because center Tyson Chandler performed three of these against the Brooklyn Nets tonight. They were all pretty impressive, my favorite was the second one with about a minute and half to go in the third quarter. On that dunk Raymond Felton drove the lane and as the defenders closed...

Gerald Green throws done powerful jam

Sometimes athletes do stuff that just leave the commentators in awe like they were fans watching the game themselves. Indiana Pacers guard Gerald Green did just that tonight against the Utah Jazz. Green started from behind the arc and took off full speed towards the hoop, he then elevated and laid down a nasty, just nasty dunk. A dunk so good the announcers had nothing to say...

Cruz & Nicks – Good & Bad Xmas Gifts (Video)

Victor Cruz and Hakeem Nicks of the New York Giants took time out of their schedule to film a new commercial for Foot Locker. The commercial demonstrates the differences between a good and a bad Christmas gift. In all honesty the commercial is god awful, I hope when Cruz said “I know a thing or two about bad acting” he knew this was exactly that. addthis_url = &...

HE'S STILL GOT IT

Rasheed Wallace nails buzzer beater

As I said in the last post I went to the New York Knicks game in Philly tonight and J.R. Smith had the play of the game. While that may be so no player electrified the crowd then Philly native Rasheed Wallace. EVERY time Sheed touched the ball the crowd would start to chant SHEEEEED and every time he hoisted a three you’d hear the chant even louder or a collective sigh. You...

VIDEO: JR Smith gets nasty in Philly

The New York Knicks put on a clinic tonight down in Philly with a 22 point win. I was there in person tonight and have to tell you it wasn’t even THAT close. Guard J.R. Smith easily had the most exciting play of the night. Pablo Prigioni stole the ball and took off down court. Unfortunately for him, Evan Turner and Jrue Holiday followed and provided great defense, causing Prigioni...
