Derrick Rose is done for the season after tearing his ACL
Keywords: derrick rose, torn acl, bulls
They say a picture says a thousands words. I’m not sure who said that originally, but they were right. Derrick Rose is out for the year, the Bulls will not have the reigning MVP for their postseason run and team USA will not have him for the upcoming Olympics. Rose has been in and out of the Bulls lineup all season with various nicks to his body. But this time it is official DRose will not be playing for Chicago for what may be a long time.
Whether it was the strike shortened season, or just ware and tear, Roses’ body has taken a beating this year. It remains to be seen if he can ever be the same player again.
Knicks and new coach Mike Woodson make Danny Granger and the Pacers eat their words
Keywords: danny granger, trash talk, mike woodson, pacers, very winnable games
Before the Knicks began their home and home mini series with the Pacers this weekend, Danny Granger had a few choice words for the struggling franchise in New York. He referred to the upcoming contest with the Knicks as “very winnable games.” Well he was right, both games were very winnable for the Knicks as they blew out the Pacers while winning both games.
The New York bench continued the dominance it has had for what feels like over a month now. J.R. Smith had back to back strong games off the pine, scoring 16 points the first night and 11 the next. Steve Novak had 7 combined threes over the course of the two games. And to make Danny Granger look even worse he had just 11 and 9 points in the two games.
Now of course not everything was perfect for new coach Mike Woodson. Melo and Stat continued to struggle. There really is not much more to add to that. Both have looked mediocre for most of the season and neither really have an excuse now that D’Antoni is out of town. But it has only been three games under Woodson, so I will give them a tiny bit more wiggle room before I go all out on them again.
Despite playing for just a month, the starting role is still for Jeremy Lin
Keywords: mike woodson, jeremy lin
Mike Woodson went on the Michael Kay show yesterday and assured Knicks fans that Jeremy Lin is his starting point guard. Now there are two problems with this. First off, the Michael Kay show is one of the most horrid things on the radio. Luckily my buddy who was listening relayed this info to me. And secondly, and probably more importantly, Jeremy Lin is not New York Knicks property.
Woodson said that Lin wont lose his job because of his injury. That would be all well and good if it wasn’t for the fact that Lin is a free agent. The Knicks can match any offer made to Lin, but if it is too rich for their money he may not be retained. For that matter he may not want to come back, New York might just be too mainstream for him. Hipster jokes aside, all we can do now is sit back and wait to see how this one unfolds.
Is Phil Jackson on his way to coaching the Knicks?
Keywords: phil jackson, lakers, bulls, knicks, champion
Phil Jackson has won 11 NBA titles as a head coach. He also won two more as a player. With 13 NBA championships under his belt it is safe to say that the Zen Master knows what he is doing. He has won with Michael Jordan and the Bulls, Kobe Bryant and the Lakers, and…..maybe, just maybe he could win with Carmelo Anthony and the Knicks. Now I more than anyone will jump on a chance to attack Melo, but maybe with a coach like Phil the true potential of Melo could finally be unlocked. Whether or not Phil does decide to come out of retirement has yet to be determined, but either way the Knicks appear to be poised to replace Mike Woodson as their interim head coach.
Back in high school I went back and fourth trying to decide if I wanted this jersey or a Toronto Raptors jersey. Luckily I went with the Raptors, this golden Wizards jersey would have been social suicide. Yet as it often goes with my Jersey of the Week, the weirder it is the better. And for a bonus it is being worn by Gilbert Arenas, one of the few players who still rocks the number 0. Actually I’m not sure if 0 is a number or not…..I guess thats why I failed math a couple of times…..
Argentina has been one of the few teams in this tournament considered a threat to the United States. After trailing by just one at the half, they showed why everybody thought that. But then things went south fast and the only threat they posed was to the manhood of Carmelo Anthony. Melo hits a 3, and as he does the Argentines hit him where the sun don’t shine.
The Washington Wizards new jerseys are eerily similar to the team they share a building with
Keywords: washington, wizards, capitals, ted leonis
Ted Leonis is the owner to the Washington Wizards. He also happens to own the NHL team, the Washington Capitals. The Caps have had their current jerseys for quite a few years, and Leonis has adapted that design to his Wizards. The Wizards are an awful team, the Caps have been pretty good in the past few years. My thinking is that Leonis is a marketing genius, the Caps are whats big in D.C. so he decided to make the Wizards look just like them. Unfortunately these slick jerseys have seen very, very, very few wins.
