NBA 2k13 may have shown the Knicks new jerseys

Keywords: knicks

 

The upcoming NBA 2k13 game recently released a promotional video to get their fans all riled up. And then they took it down. The reason they deleted it? Well it looks like it is because they accidentally showed the world the New York Knicks in their brand new jerseys. From the image the most striking change is the shade of blue on the uniform. They appear to be going much brighter, much like the jerseys of the 90′s. Plus we all know how great the 90′s were, so that automatically makes these some excellent new digs for the Knicks.




I know I know… more memes, I’m sorry

Keywords: pic of the day, miami vc okc

 

 

I swear I have no intention of posting these meme pictures everyday, it’s just that there are so many out there, and they’re so damn funny that I have no choice.   I guess because they’re so popular at the moment, that everyone with an imagination and simple picture program feels it is their duty to churn these things out like clockwork.

 

I’m not complaining, I wake up every morning to atleast a half a dozen of these things in my inbox, 90% of them make me crack up, so it’s a no brainer when it comes time to choose my Picture of the Day for you guys.




Feds raid ‘Birdmans’ house and rumors run rampant

Keywords: chris andersen, birdman, child pornography

Yeah, not gonna lie, this is creepy.   Not that I followed the guys career much, but I can’t say I ever expected to read a story about the Feds knocking his door down and seizing all his personal electronics property.     I know a lot of people are saying ‘you can’t jump to conclusions yet’ since it’s all brand new and nothing has been 100% confirmed yet- and I’m right there on that level… but ya gotta admit, this is pretty serious stuff.

He’s been absent since the raid, missing games with his team, and the Nuggets have completely excused him indefinitely from any team functions until things are cleared up.   Andersen hasn’t exactly been a key player for the Nuggets this year, so this whole incident doesn’t hurt the Nuggets all that much; however any sort of outside interference issues like these always tend to have some negative impact on the team as they continue to play while dealing with the media controversy at hand.

 

As things unravel, we’ll keep you posted.  The weekend is here, and I’m ready to start enjoying myself.   I’ll see you all back here on Monday




Landry, Lin, and Lopez all receive qualifying offers

Keywords: landry fields, jeremy lin, brook lopez

 

The Knicks and Nets made the first step in retaining some key players today by giving them qualifying offers. What this means is that if any teams try to sign these players, the Knicks and Nets can match the offer without worrying about going over the salary cap. Now the three players in question all had some pretty tumultuous seasons.

 

 

First is the obvious, Jeremy Lin. Linsanity swept over New York and a superstar was born. But as quickly as Lin came he went, injuries plagued his season and we still don’t know what we might get. Speaking of injuries Brook Lopez missed almost all of last season with the Nets. If they hold onto him he will be a key piece to their Brooklyn debut. And finally Landry Fields. Landry had…..a forgettable season in his sophomore campaign. But regardless he too will be retained. So now we will hopefully get a chance to see how these three players fair next season in New York.




Another gem from the archives

I knew if I didn’t get this thing out eventually, it would just wind up in my trash can.  I’m a couple series late, but for all the sneaker heads out there who may not have seen this, Baron Davis laced up these kicks for one game during the Heat series.  It was a good thing he retired them after that game though, Davis only put up 7 points, 1 rebound and 3 assists in the loss-  safe to say these weren’t his lucky sneakers




If I didn’t know any better I would have no idea that this jersey represented a Hawk

Keywords: jersey of the week, atlanta hawks, mint green, pistol pete

 

The mint green color scheme along with the blue doesn’t really make me think of a Hawk. Actually I have no idea how this color scheme of jersey even represents Atlanta. Now the jerseys I am talking about are the reverse of the one pictured. This smooth shot of Pistol Pete Maravich was too good to pass up though. The Hawks used one with a base of mint green with the blue stripes and the one pictures which has mint green stripes. It may not even actually be mint green, but saying mint green just makes it seem like an even odder concept. And once again, I still do not see what this has to with a Hawk.




The rookie of the year rocks a sick jersey

Keywords: kyrie irving, cavs, jersey of the week

The Cleveland Cavaliers have done their best to wipe out the time Lebron James spent playing for them. Two of the best things that changed after the James departure were the additions of Kyrie Irving and these new jerseys. Now the pictured jersey is the best of the moves, this being the Cavs alternate uniform. Blue, Yellow, Red, all the primary colors are well represented.
