Atlanta Hawks v New York Knicks

(I should preface this by saying I am a Brooklyn Nets fan, but definitely not a Knicks hater. I want to see both New York team succeed, but Carmelo Anthony has really gotten under my skin the past few months. Here goes nothing.)

Timing is everything. We have all heard this, but Carmelo Anthony is giving this phrase an entirely new meaning. The NBA Trade Deadline is about a day away (Thursday, 3pm) and Anthony has once again succeeded in making it all about him.  The most un-breaking, breaking news was reported today by ESPN’s Marc Stein: the New York Knicks will officially rule out Carmelo Anthony for the rest of the season today and he is headed for knee surgery in the near future.

Devin Booker popped right back up after this foul sent him crashing out of bounds into the Tennessee cheerleading squad, but I doubt the same can be said for the poor girl he pretty much broke in half.  Check out a Vine of the collision after the jump: Read the rest of this entry »

Knicks fans are the ones smiling now

The New York Daily News is reporting that the New York Knicks have reached a buyout agreement with human dumpster fire power forward Amare Stoudemire.  Stoudemire, the 2nd highest paid player in the NBA this season at $23,410,988 is averaging 12 points and 6.8 rebounds per game, as the Knicks sit at the bottom of the NBA standings with an embarrassing 10-43 record.   Read the rest of this entry »

Not sure if this is a serious issue, but when the head coach of Kentucky Men’s Basketball tweets asking the whereabouts of one of his players, you can never be too sure.  On Monday night, Coach John Calipari tweeted the following couple of messages regarding Trey Lyles: Read the rest of this entry »

I dropped my yearly NCAA Men’s Basketball preview in November, and I usually drop an update in January but I’ve admittedly been slacking.  Check out the latest rankings and who I think has a shot to cut down the net in April.   Read the rest of this entry »

IPL: Good for the game?

Mumbai Indians cricketer Harbhajan Singh

Despite the fact that India has long been one of the world’s most cricket mad countries, for a long period it lacked a domestic league which drew genuine international attention and star power. That all changed back in 2008 with the inauguration of the IPL T20, in which 8 franchises compete in a T20 (20 overs per side) league. T20 Cricket is faster, higher scoring and generally more appealing to TV audiences than full day events and the IPL has quickly become the world’s most commercially successful cricket league.

The Padres haven’t won their division since 2006, but with a few high-profile additions for 2015, the outlook on this season is getting a whole lot brighter.

Let’s take a look at a few of these big moves, and how they’ll impact the 2015 team.  Read the rest of this entry »
