Knicks Still After Beno Udrih in Free Agency

Knicks Still After Beno Udrih in Free Agency

Bargain hunting in the NBA can be fun. Which, for the New York Knick is good, because bargains are all they can afford. Armed with absolutely no cap room, the Knicks managed to make something of an offseason splash this summer. They re-signed Pablo Prigioni and an injured J.R. Smith, and traded for Andrea Bargnani. [...]

Shane Battier Upset About Heat’s Holiday Schedule

Shane Battier Upset About Heat’s Holiday Schedule

Shane Battier is upset, and I don’t blame him. The NBA released the 2013-14 schedule on Tuesday and, lo and behold, the Miami Heat are on the road for both Thanksgiving and Christmas. Naturally, Battier isn’t thrilled about the idea (h/t to USA Today). The schedule I got said that we are on the road [...]

Magic Johnson Thinks LeBron James Will Opt Out in 2014

Speaking with the Los Angeles Daily News (via Ira Winderman of the Sun-Sentinel), Magic said that he believes LeBron James will opt out of his contract with the Miami Heat next summer. “LeBron could opt in, but [...]

Kobe Bryant Says He ‘Shattered’ Timetable on Achilles Recovery

Kobe Bryant Says He ‘Shattered’ Timetable on Achilles Recovery

There’s is no explaining the recovery process of one Kobe Bryant. It’s been said before, almost to the point where it’s played out. But not quite. Because we’re still enraptured, still fascinated by the Black Mamba’s borderline immortality, his self-healing-like powers. To be crystal clear, I’m not kidding. I’ve never been more serious about anything [...]

Fip Saunders Still Believes Pekovic Stays with Timberwolves

Fip Saunders Still Believes Pekovic Stays with Timberwolves

Nikola Pekovic still hasn’t signed anything, which is only weird because Brandon Jennings has. Of all the free agents, especially restricted free agents, most wouldn’t have thought Pek would be the last big name to sign. He should have been one of the first. After averaging 16.3 points and 8.8 rebounds last season, a deal [...]

Knicks Stop Amar’e Stoudemire From Working with Hakeem Olajuwon

This is the moment all New York Knicks fans have been waiting for, but not in a good away. According to the New York Post‘s Marc Berman, Amar’e Stoudemire won’t be returning to Hakeem Olajuwon’s camp to work on his post moves this summer, as the team believes his surgically-repaired knees need rest: Stoudemire will [...]

Brandon Jennings Happy About Being Traded to Pistons

Brandon Jennings Happy About Being Traded to Pistons

Joe Dumars and the Detroit Pistons have already done something the Milwaukee Bucks never did—made Brandon Jennings happy. Entering the fifth season of his NBA career, Jennings has shot better than 40 percent from the field only once, never made it out of the first round of the playoffs and been generally unhappy in Milwaukee. [...]

Chris Paul Almost Left Clippers to Join Dwight Howard and Rockets

Chris Paul Almost Left Clippers to Join Dwight Howard and Rockets

Oh what almost could have been for the Houston Rockets. Not that pairing Dwight Howard with James Harden wasn’t enough. For now—the Rockets still need one more star if they wish to contend for a championship—it is. But it could have been even better. According to ESPN Grantland’s Bill Simmons, Chris Paul threatened to leave [...]

Mike D’Antoni Believes Lakers Will Be Better Than Most Think

Mike D’Antoni Believes Lakers Will Be Better Than Most Think

Never count out the Los Angeles Lakers or rather, Kobe Bryant. It’s a lesson I myself learned long ago, and one that still applies today. Writing off any team the Black Mamba—injured or not—plays for is like roller skating through your local mall in nothing save for a pair of tidy whities, in that you [...]

Knicks Willing to Let Carmelo Anthony Build Own Team in 2015

Knicks Willing to Let Carmelo Anthony Build Own Team in 2015

So why do the New York Knicks need Glen Grunwald again? Oh right, formalities. To hell with those shackles. They should just go ahead and give Carmelo Anthony the official title of star cornerstone and acting general manager. According to Hoopworld’s Steve Kyler, the Knicks have let ‘Melo know their financial books will be clear [...]
