Knicks what are you guys doing?? Honestly what you are doing is really really messed up, like for real. We know he isnt a winner and is a ME first point guard, we know he has never ever lived up to his hype...EVER! We know that, we know he shouldnt have left KG in Minny because he wanted to "be the man", we know that. We know his testimony caused you guys to lose the sexual harassment case, because he fabricated the story a little bit, we know that. We know he asked to go work out with his high school team, "to get his reps in", we know this. But what I dont know is why you are going to keep a cancer on your team and pay him $21 million dollars? Why? Just get rid of him, chalk up your losses and move on, he will never get paid like this again and we know this, but you are making him a martyr in what you are doing and making yourself look foolish in the process(if thats at all possible, I mean you are the Knicks). So let him go like a scorned ex lover, you are better off without him and the next one that comes along will be way better. So Knicks trade Steph because the NBA fans are giving him a little sympathy and he definitely doesnt deserve that.
If tis surprises anyone they dont know shit about basketball. PJ Carlisemo has never ever been an NBA coach, he still thinks its 89 and he can treat players like shit and get away with it, note to PJ these players make more than you so you have to give them the respect they deserve no matter if you have been coaching longer than they all have been living. So like I said it was only a matter of time, the NBA needs to realize this isnt college and just because you were the Asst Coach on a Championship team doesnt mean you are a good fit for the job. Even though his boy Sam Presti got the job as President of the Thunder he had to let his boy loose. Well PJ you were 24-96 and off to a great 1-12 start this season, so it was only a matter of time.
The Knicks are getting rid of the over paid and underachieving people on their roster, they made a trade yesterday for expiring contracts(Tim Thomas and Cuttino Mobley)and got rid of over priced payouts(Jamal Crawford and Zach Randolph). The Clippers might have gotten the better deal, but the Knicks didnt stop there because they picked up Al Harrington(another cry baby) when they traded Jamal Crawford to the Warriors. Tat is basically a ploy to tell the big time FA's for the class of 2010(mainly LeBron) to come resurrect the Knicks and lead them to the promise land. Can you imagine all of the celebrities sans Spike Lee and Seinfield that will be sitting first row if the God goes to the Knicks in '10? WWJD(What Will Jay-Z Do), he owns a piece of the Nets, but his boy is playing in the Garden while his lowly Nets are playing the Bobcats? Thats tough and I wonder if he will try and buy stake in the Knicks. After these trades the Knicks are freeing up to $30 million by the time 2010 rolls around, that means LeBron will get $20-$25 mil per season and its NY and the owners are rich, so that could entice CB4(Cris Bosh) to head a couple hours south to join him as well, or D Wade. Can you imagine? We shall see.
I give it to Vince Carter, now only if he could play in T-Dot and hear all the boos all the time he might become the player he once was. Never has a man ever had that much athleticism in the NBA, I'm not talking about skills or strength I am talking about an athlete in its purest form, thats what Vince Carter was, until he went to his college graduation. That signified the beginning of the end for him and his career. You dont go to your graduation (which wasnt for is class I might add)on Game 7 of the Eastern Conf Finals. Then when he got traded to NJ he hasnt been the same ol Vince, until last night, can you please tell me who wins te game on a reverse dunk from an out of bounds play???? Vince does, thats why people get so upset with him, he will do some amazing things in a game that makes you say wow this guy is unbelievable, but the other times you wont find Vince for 20-25 games. So hopefully Vince you will keep this up and you wont need the motivation of your old team and fans booing you to play like you are worth what you get paid.

D Wade I owe you an apology I really do, I let the haters sway my judgement about you and how cold you were. I knew that the 06 'Chip wasnt a fluke because of how you killed your first year in Miami before Shaq came. I mean I honestly thought you were done after your last saeason and injury(I mean you needed a wheelchair to get off the court vs the Rockets with a dislocated shoulder, I know it hurts but come on). After what I saw at the Olympics I kinda believed but i thought with the plethora of talent on that team you had an advantage the whole time. But after what you avg last week(29 5 5)and your last game (40 11asst 7)its official G, you are back. I will never doubt your G'ness again since you are a G from the Southside of the Chi. I see you exercised the 5 P's this summer(Proper Preparation Prevents Poor Performance). Forks

40 and 18, thats what Chris Bosh dropped on "Superman" the other night, while "Superman" could only muster up a meager 18 and 9. Last year they played Bosh dropped 39 on Dwight, now these 2 guys were Olympic teammates and Dwight started over Bosh, I have no idea why because it seems that Bosh has his number. Now I am a huge huge Dwight Howard fan and wasnt a fan of Bosh until a couple of years ago because he didnt seem to impress me that much in college, now I am starting to see that this kid is way better than advertised. Hopefully he will become a Laker.
OMG OMG people people Greg Oden ad a stat line 22 11 and 5 and no it wasnt in NBA 2K9, it was in real life. I thought it was a misprint, but when I saw the highlights I saw it was true. Wow Greg Im so glad you arent a stiff, you can somewhat play. Good now if you do this 2 more times it will be called a streak, but please someone call me when he puts up Dwight Howard or Chris Bosh numbers.
Who cares??? He is waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay richer than Martha Stewart he will get off Scott Free. What I dont understand is that why a multi billionaire would give a shit about $600,000? I mean we all know that the Mavs are garbage and you are paying a over the hill HOF pg $21mil for this year and the next, so you are telling me you cant afford to lose $600,000 more?? I dont understand it, but like I said he is ok, NOTHING will happen to him and David Stern will try to suspend him but that wont work, the name of his team suits his personality best, a Maverick.

Way to go Shaq, I see you are trying to end you career as a Laker and I applaud you for that, but dont air out your dirty laundry. I know the Zen Master was using your rift with Kobe as motivation for both of you drama queens, but if you need a feud with a pre pubescent NBAer to get motivated you should give all of your paychecks back. I love Shaq, to me he is the best center/player to ever lace them up. Now with that being said wouldnt it be great if Shaq does go back to the Lakers and Kobe hasnt won a ring yet, and when he arrives they win it all that season. That would be a perfect storybook ending for Shaq and would eat at Kobe for the rest of his career to show him that he couldnt win without the big fella. Kobe is lame and Shaq is the reason the Lakers won all of thoes championships in the early 2k.

Um ok, wow. So let me start this off by saying Im not a hater I give respect where its due, and Devin Harris gets it today. He has scored 63 points on 2 nights in a home at home series vs the Atlanta Hawks. Last night he had 33 and was acting like he was playing in a pick up game because the Nets just destroyed the Hawks. I didnt know Devin Harris would kill like this and I am sure Rick Carlisle wouldve let him play like this but under Avery Johnson I'm sure his hands were tied. So I know Mark Cuban is pissed right now he traded a 24 year old amazingly athletic 6'5'' pg with his future ahead of him, for a 35 year old Hall of Fame no jumpshot having triple double machine pg with his best times behind him. Kidd will be gone in 2 years(tops) and Harris will be an All Star if he keeps this up. Great job Cuban you really know how to run a team, didnt you fire Don Nelson and make his son GM? Great job Cuban thats why your Mavs wont make the playoffs.
His name is Thaddeus Young and he is a 1 and done 2nd year player from Georgia Tech. Now, I know none of you "NBA fans" have ever heard of him because his name isnt Kobe, T-Mac, or LeBron, but this guy is going to be a monster when it is all said and done. He is the 1st option in their offense and for good reason, he has a good range on his jumper and can score in the lane. He is 6'8'' and 220lbs, and he is left handed(for those of you say why does that matter, the NBA is a right handed game)which is sometime tricky for defenses. All I have to say is that Thaddeus Young is going to be a max(contract) player when its all said and done.
Boy were they wrong. Man I feel bad for BD because he has always had a bum rap for being a cancer or selfish or faking it. I can finally say he has never been on a team that is really worth a damn. And with that run in 07 vs the sorry ass Mavs helped him re-boost his career, he now finds himself in a spot where $70 million dollars will only do so much for your basketball saneness. BD is rich we all know that, but in the NBA world he still lives on 85th and Manchester in South Central LA. The Clippers are a team full of wasted talent and the blvd of broken dreams. I mean any team that has Tim Thomas in its rotation is not going to be good. So once again BD will have a great year but no one will care because he is on the sorry ass Clippers. A team that is a 2nd fiddle organization in every single way, form, and fashion. I understand wanting to come back home, but BD, Dunleavy is an idiot and you have no one on your team besides the rook(Eric Gordon) and the old man(Al Thornton). Trade everyone and go for Al Jefferson or a real big man. Because to me Chris Kaman is Big Papi, good only when Manny Ramirez(Elton Brand) was there and when he left he figured out he isnt as good when all the attention is to stop him from going off. So sorry BD, but hey at least you got $70 million

Yesssssssssssss Yessssssssssssss Yesssssss, he finally did it. Finally!!!!!!!!!! Greg Oden had a franchise best 13 and 8rebs the other night against the top tier Timberwolves, man this kid is improving and showing he was worth the wait. I mean 13 and 8 wow Kevin Durant you have a lot to live up to if you want to get that ROY. Greg, I am proud of you for scoring allllllllll of those points and grabbing alllllllllll of those rebounds. 2 more games like this and you might be better than Tim Duncan. Ok Kevin Pritchard you are a genius for taking Oden #1, I take it back.
editors note* - this article is rife with sarcasm and the owners of this blog do not agree with the statement- "2 more games like this and you might be better than Tim Duncan"
So LeBron had 38 7 6 ho hum another day at the office, no, its the way he did it that made it so special. First let me say LeBron is Shaq with a handle and outside game, meaning he is unstoppable and its amazing how guys just bump off of him when he is going full steam ahead into the lane. Kobe didnt do it like that, nor did Jordan, LeBron gets to the hole every single time no matter how many bodies are in his way. Once he gets a consistent jump shot its over, but his J is working good enough now, I think he is the hands down MVP and the trophy is his to lose.

FINALLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! He played without getting hurt. Greg Oden had one of the best debuts(again)for a big man a whopping 3pts 2rebs and 2 blocks, wow give this guy Rookie Of The Year now!!!!!!!! If you watch Sportscenter his only basket is a top play(really????). I said all along the Blazers shouldve taken Durant, but I was told Oden is the next Bill Russell(not hardly)and will win more rings than Durant when its all said and done. Yeah ok, Oden has NEVER impressed me, EVER!!!!!!!!! He has had 1 good game and that came vs Florida, they lost, so the whole NBA was like well he had 25 and 12 with 5 blocks vs Al Horford and Joakim Noah, so, those guys are doing their thing in the NBA. I just dont see the hype, until Oden strings together a slew of double doubles I am not buying it. Greg Oden is the next Sam Bowie, not Bill Russell.
Derrick, sorry G I had said that you werent as good as advertised, and for that I apologize, you have been amazing since you stepped into the starting position, the other night vs the Hawks you had 26-10-7rebs, and that is sick, you have already posted a triple double and you have been going straight at the teeth of the defense, showing no fear. I shouldve given you the benefit of the doubt realizing what city you came from, and all of the ballers from Chicago that are in the NBA. Everyone was saying Beasley Beasley Beasley, as was I, but man you have showed and proved while you deserved to be the #1 pick. Just dont fade out at the end of the season, I dont think you have showed anyone anything yet, the best is just to come.
Ok, so you guys hit a hot streak vs the Grizzlies(which are a great D-League Team in the NBA)and made 19-34 3 pointers, but it doesnt change the facts that since 1999 the Knicks have been the biggest laughing stock in all major sports. Oh and the draft pick and hand selected by Mike D'Antoni(he played with the dudes dad in Italy)is done for the season with a bad back(he's only 20!!!!!!!!!). Way to go D'Antoni, way to start it off right, and the way you are doing Stephon Marbury is an abomination to proper business practice, just buy him out and let him go on his way, you know as soon as he is gone he will tell tell tell on the circus that is called the Knicks. So for all you Knicks fans, they are horrible and will be for at least another 5 years.
30-19-10(blocks), are numbers Greg Oden will never put up, but we aren't talking about Lamont Sanford we are talking about Dwight (Superman that hoe)Howard. In a schlacking last night vs the Thunder(WNBA name), Dwight Howard scoffed at the notion that Robert Swift(who????)could guard him. So Dwight Howard proceeded to show all the NBA brass that he is the best(true)center in the NBA by posting his first triple double, a feat of that stature hasnt been accomplished in the NBA in 18 years(Hakeem Olajuwon was the last). So I think Dwight Howard has lived up to his #1 selection, Greg, you reading?
Paul Pierce's go ahead bucket last night with .5 leftgave the Celtics the win and ended the Hawks bid at immortality. Off to their best start in franchise history the Hawks fought tooth and nail with the Champion Celtics until Paul Pierce and KG took over. Paul had 23 points in the second half to finish with 34, and KG added 25 and 12 rebs. Joe Johnson led the Hawks with 28, and Marvin Williams had 14 and hit the go ahead 3 pointer to put the Hawks up 1 with 7.4 to go, after that the play was the give and go: give it to Paul and get the hell out of his way.

Hello world this is a PSA stating that LeBron James now owns the NBA!!!!!!!!!!! See I have to give it to LeBron because he is built like a God, but oooooooooooweeeeeeeeeee is that boy CP3 something else. I mean he honestly might be the best player in the game because he controls the whole entire game. Oh yeah back to LeBron, he had 41 for his 3rd time in 4 games, I mean honestly what will this guy become in 2 years if he has already done so much so soon. He has lived far beyond all of the expectations bestowed upon him. He is the first guy since "His Airness" to have 3 40+pt games in the first 8(hear that Bean). LeBron for MVP!!!!!!!!
Wow, KJ that is an amazing feat being that is your hometown. I am so glad he is making a difference in his community and in the world. Hopefully the success of our young brothers and sisters(Go Michelle) will spread and become contagious. KJ was one of the best pg's to play in the NBA and if you dont remember I have something for you. KJ was amazing and hopefully he can make a change now that he is in the position he is in. Go on brother.
Once again another Roy Williams team is ranked #1 in the beginning of the season and WILL NOT finish in that spot. I dont know what it is about Roy Williams, but his teams, amazing on paper are sometimes as soft as the paper those amazing stats are on. I mean at one point at Kansas he had Jacque Vaughn, PAUL PIERCE(2008 NBA Finals MVP, remember??), Scot Pollard, and Raef Lafrentz on the same team and remember what happened to them? What about last year and the team he had then, which I might add is the exact same team as today minus Deon Thompson? I think Roy Williams always chokes because he always has the players. We shall see because I dont think UNC is as good as advertised, and I dont think they are that athletic of a basketball team.
The OKC Thunder, does that strike fear in your heart? Or if you didnt know anything and someone said hey we are going to watch the Thunder game, would you say I dont want to watch a WNBA game. Maybe one of the worst franchise names in all of sports, I mean if that was a WNBA team name I would like it but not for the NBA. And with the Knick jersey rip offs this team needs a major major facelift, thats why you dont put a NBA team in a "fly-over state".
Is it me or is Dwight Howard built like the Incredible Hulk(no homo)? I mean this man had 29 and 19 last night against the Blazers (I know Oden was thanking his lucky stars he was hurt or it might have been worse) and he has been putting up ridiculous numbers like this since he came in to the league, I think he might be the first man to go 40-40 in an NBA game or since Wilt did it(you know all those amazing stat lines belong to Wilt). Dwight Howard is on a tear and he is only scratching the surface of his career. Attention GM's when you are drafting a franchise center look at Dwight Howard and try to get a guy that is close to him, not one who has one leg longer than the other.
Ok can you say trying to fit a square peg in a round hole? I think Denver got the best out of this deal and Carmelo Antony will flourish with the help of Mr Big Shot. Detroit mmmm not so much. A.I. will still get you 30 but he will need 20-25 shots a night, Sheed is old and you can see the blunt residue on his lips, so he is heading for retirement. Rip is still ballin, but will stop running around all those pics because A.I. will be shooting the ball. Denver is 2-0 since the trade and Detroit is 0-2, and to me numbers never lie. I love A.I. and think he is one of the games greatest ever. I put him and Shaq in the category of, "They dont count", because those are the only 2 players in league history to completely change the rules because if they didnt it wouldnt have been fair. Its still early so we shall see, but I dont see A.I. as a Piston, almost like MJ as a Wizard.
The Los Angeles Clippers hmmmmm how do I say this delicately since BD is the homie, you guys are terrible. Like really bad. 1-6 start, so much for the new look Clippers. I think they have the same exact team(sans BD) as they did last year just different faces, if you understand what I am saying. I dont think the Clippers will win 35 games this year, I think Mike Dunleavy has no idea what he is doing as a GM, as a coach he is marginal. This is his team, HIS team that he assembled, minus BD they have no one who can score with 2 minutes to go down 2 points. So I'm not blaming BD at all (dont be surprised though if the Clips dont start winning, he might call it a season at game 50)Im just saying, different faces same sorry ass Clippers. I mean your mascot's name is Clipper Darrell you know you are in trouble. Oh boy another long season for the JV NBA team of LA.
Tony Parker snapped earlier this week going for the double nickel(55 for you squares) in a double OT win vs the Lakers.......wait that wasnt the Lakers? Who? The Timberwolves? Wait when did they get called up from the NCAA? Oh yeah Tony Parker went off in a double OT win vs the powerhouse Minnesota Timberwolves, and the next game he rolls his ankle and is out for a month. Now that really sucks, but hey with and avg age of 39 the Spurs arent going to win anything this year. First it was Manu, now its Tony, trust me Tim Duncan will not waste a season playing hard for a team that has no chacne, he'd rather pack it up until next season. I say the Spurs should tank this season and go for Blake Griffin from OU to give Tim another presence down low next to him.
"With the 2nd pick in the 1984 draft the Portland Trailblazers select Sam Bowie", probably the most dreaded sentence Portland fans have ever been a part of(there was a guy named Michael Jordan, heard of him, in that draft as well), now they are reliving 1984 all over again. The much ballyhooed and over hyped center out of Ohio State, Greg Oden, cant do anything right. I mean how do you get hurt on a dropstep? All that work and talk about why you take Oden over Durant, boy I love saying it, BUT I TOLD EVERYBODY DURANT IS SPECIAL. And even though Portland thought they hit the lottery it seems they got chocolate instead of gold. I feel bad for Oden though, ever since Sanford and Son has ended he hasnt found a steady job that he can grasp. But hey I guess in the long run Oden will win more championships than Durant(WTF???), Oden cant even make it a whole quarter in his 2 NBA seasons. He is a bust and he will never score over 30 points in a game. Dwight Howard is something he will never be. Prove me wrong Shrek.
