Carmelo Anthony Doesn’t Believe He’s a Ball Hog

Carmelo Anthony Doesn’t Believe He’s a Ball Hog

All may not be well in New York. Following the New York Knicks’ Game 3 loss to the Indiana Pacers, Tyson Chandler (of all people) was more than critical of the team’s offense. He took jabs at the Knicks lack of ball movement that everyone and their extended family interpreted as indirect shots at Carmelo [...]

Kevin Durant Says Thunder Need Russell Westbrook

Well, duh. Kevin Durant was asked about life on the Oklahoma City Thunder without Russell Westbrook prior to the team’s Game 4 overtime loss to the Memphis Grizzlies, and he responded by saying the only thing he really could: He missed him. Asked Kevin Durant what he’s learned about himself in the absence of Russell [...]

Knicks Must Find Outside Touch Against Pacers

Knicks Must Find Outside Touch Against Pacers

Where did all the three-point shooting go? That’s what every member of the New York Knicks, their fans and Mike Woodson should be asking themselves following the team’s loss to the Indiana Pacers. New York fell in Indiana 82-71 (it could have been worse), attempted just 11 three-pointerss and connected on just three of them. [...]

Stephen Curry Admits Ankle Won’t Be 100 Percent

Stephen Curry Admits Ankle Won’t Be 100 Percent

Stephen Curry of the Golden State Warriors isn’t deluded when it comes to the state of his ankles. The sharp-shooting guard rolled over his left ankle in Golden State’s Game 3 loss to the San Antonio Spurs, and was a game-time decision for Game 4. He inevitably played, logging 39 minutes and helping lead the [...]

Celtics’ Danny Ainge Talks Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett and More

Boston Celtics general manager Danny Ainge has no illusions about his current team. Though the Celtics came back from a 3-0 series deficit to bring the New York Knicks to a Game 6 in the first round of the NBA playoffs, Ainge knows that he doesn’t have a contender on his hands. He also knows [...]

Matt Barnes Says Chris Paul Will Stay With Clippers

Matt Barnes Says Chris Paul Will Stay With Clippers

Maybe Chris Paul isn’t such a flight risk after all. Following the Los Angeles Clippers’ first-round exit at the hands of the Memphis Grizzlies, I was of the mind that Paul would consider spurning Hollywood for a different locale. And I still am. Fellow Clipper Matt Barnes, however, is not. Speaking with ESPNLA 710, Barnes [...]

Phil Jackson Still Open to Coaching

Phil Jackson Still Open to Coaching

And you thought Dwight Howard was indecisive. Phil Jackson remains a sought after head coach. How could he not? He’s won 11 titles as a sideline stalker and in 20 years on the job, he’s never once coached a team to a record below .500. Teams want that type of resume in their locker room. [...]

Carmelo Anthony Thanks Gary Washburn for MVP Vote

Carmelo Anthony Thanks Gary Washburn for MVP Vote

Carmelo Anthony isn’t going to lose sleep over LeBron James not unanimously being voted the NBA’s MVP. Gary Washburn of The Boston Globe has been receiving plenty of criticism for choosing ‘Melo over LeBron as the league’s most valuable player, and Anthony, for the life of him, can’t seem to figure out why (via Matt [...]
