Carmelo Anthony has finally found a head coach he actually likes

Keywords: carmelo anthony, mike woodson, knicks coach

 

If Carmelo Anthony has it his way, Mike Woodson will be back with the Knicks next season.”I’m a big supporter of what coach Woodson has done. His approach to the game, and what he gets out of all his players, even me. He holds everybody accountable and that’s what we need.” And to be honest I have never seen Melo that happy in any picture. Ever. That alone is reason enough to retain Woodson.

 

Considering Melo pushed Mike D’Antoni out of town and had a pretty bad relationship with George Karl in Denver, this is a revelation. Carmelo Anthony finally has a coach that he actually likes. In fairness to Melo, I love Woodson too.

 

The man is 16-6 since taking over the Knickerbockers and he has clinched a playoff berth. If he gets the Knicks a postseason win that will be one more win then anybody has seen in about 10 years. I’ll sign up for that. Also that beard, damn that is one of the best beards I have ever seen in basketball.




Lebron James has a dislocated finger, oh the irony of which one it happens to be

Keywords: lebron james, dislocated finger, ring ringer, heat

Lebron is probably the most hated guy in the NBA. Honestly he may also get the least amount of respect from the media then anybody else. So as you could imagine when Lebron James was found to have a dislocated ring finger people jumped at the opportunity to make jokes. Because hey, its not like Lebron has any use for his ring finger anyway. As everyone knows, Lebron lacks that clutch gene and after losing to the Mavs in the finals last year most people questioned whether or not it would be possible for James to ever win a ring. So I have compiled a well researched list of the best jokes at the expense of Lebron James.

 

LeBron James was just traded to the Florida Panthers. He should be wildly successful, since in the NHL, there are only 3 periods

Tomorrow is Lebron James day, everyone gets to leave work 12 minutes early.

Apple is coming out with a LeBron James iPhone. But it only vibrates because it has no rings.

 LeBron James will release his autobiography as soon as he comes up with a title.

 

My personal favorite is the last one, at first I didn’t get it but when I realized what it was saying I actually laughed out loud in class. Anyway, sure we can all laugh at Lebron, but in the end nobody can say that the guy isn’t a great player. He is an MVP and perennial all star. Just don’t let him take the last shot.




Jeremy Lin and Landry Fields each pick up a double double as Knicks blow out the Kings

Keywords: jeremy lin, landry fields, kings, demarcus cousins, blow out, knicks, double double

Landry Fields was having a sophomore slump that most NBA players fear. He was playing like a man destined for the D-League. Since letting Jeremy Lin crash on his couch, Landry has gone off and become the player Knicks fans have been waiting for all year. Landry had 15 points and 10 rebounds tonight while finishing on a number of crazy ally oops from Jeremy Lin. Lin had a double double himself, he had a career high 13 assist while helping on the offense with 10 points.

 

Steve “give me Novakaine” Novak pitched in 14 points off the bench; at one point Novak was able to complete the elusive 4 point play. The often booed Bill Walker was also able to chip in 14 points. Jared Jeffries was just one rebound shy of a double double as his strong play continues on.

 

The Kings were little to no match for the Knicks tonight. DeMarcus Cousins played angry, and not in a good way. At times he could be seen yelling at his teammates while at most other moments he wore a massive frown on his face. These things seem to happen when you play on a perennially bad team.

 

This 100-85 win was the Knickerbockers 7th win in a row. Next up is the Hornets, who happen to be the worst team in the Western Conference. New OrLINS will be in for a beating.




Kendrick Perkins calls out Lebron as twitter war begins

Keywords: lebron james, twitter, kendrick perkins, blake griffin, dunk of the year, kobe

Following the massive dunk that Blake Griffin put upon Kendrick Perkins the twitter world went crazy. One of those tweeters happened to be Lebron James who said; ”Dunk of the Year! @blakegriffin just dunked on Kendrick Perkins so hard!!! Wow! I guess I’m No. 2 now. Move over #6″

Perkins was less then amused by the Lebron response. He responded with this in an interview with Yahoo Sports:

“You don’t see Kobe Bryant tweeting, You don’t see Michael Jordan tweeting. If you’re an elite player, plays like that don’t excite you.

“At the end of the day, the guys who are playing for the right reasons who are trying to win championships are not worrying about one play. They also are not tweeting about themselves talking about going down to No. 2, I just feel Lebron is always looking for attention and he wants the world to like him.”

Now most people have not been fans of Lebron since his publicized decision to take his talents to south beach. Perkins took this opportunity to take his talents to the media and call out Lebron. Hey, Perkins is desperate to get people to stop talking about the domination Griffin thrust upon him with the dunk. Making people hate Lebron is always a good way to distract people.




Jackie Chan does it again

Keywords: jackie chan, michael jordan

Every time I see a new post from the Jackie Chan facebook page I get all excited. And when you see a picture like this, how could you not? I’m not sure why Jackie is standing with a cardboard cutout of Michael Jordan, nor do I care. I just know that it is absolutely spectacular.




NBA 2K13 will pit the basketballs most talked about teams against each other

Keywords: dream team, olympics

 

All summer long we have heard members of the USA Olympic team talk about how they think they could have beaten the Dream Team from the 1992 games. And of course members of that squad presented their rebuttals, saying there was no chance in hell they would lose. Now the debate can finally come to an end….well at least for the fans. The popular video game NBA 2k13 will have a mode that enables you to pitt the two teams against each other. Quite frankly I think the now 50 year olds from the Dream Team could beat the 2012 team at their current ages. But that is an argument for another day.




The Toronto Raptors are this weeks recipient of one of the best jerseys in the Associations history

Keywords: toronto raptors, vince carter, jersey of the week

The Vince Carter era was the highlight of the Toronto Raptors history. While playing North of the border, Vinsanity was able to sport some pretty sweet uniforms. This one takes the cake though. It is a Raptor, right there just smacked on the jersey. Every little dude grew up loving dinosaurs, seeing that red Raptor thrown on a teams kit made me an instant fan. For this childhood nostalgia, the good old Raptors jersey gets the spot in our first Jersey of the Week segment.
