The Eastern Conference showdown is set, the teams are ready, but didn’t we all think it would be the Knicks and Heat and not the Pacers and the Heat? I’m glad it’s the Pacers to be honest. They provide a better game and match up for the defending champions. The Knicks are just a flashy name with no substance. The Heat would have swept them, easily, but the Pacers won’t be that easy.

Leave it up to New York’s director Spike Lee to make a video introducing the New York Knicks and Brooklyn Nets series. My personal opinion, Spike’s a good director, but I feel like someone else could have did the acting.
Anyway..here’s the vid
Yes…another “dead broke” story about an athlete.
According to JR Smith’s dad, the youngster is broke and needs to stay in New York and take whatever they give him.
Smith has mad about $25 million in his 8 year career, and $3 million in China. But somehow someway, he’s broke. Go figure.
Maybe..just maybe if he would have bought some land instead of all those shoes, he would be a little better off financially.
Check out the “Calls of the 1st Round” by Mike Inglis and Jon Crotty, the radio voices of the Miami Heat and edited by our friend @brendan_tobin. Great Job B!
I’m not going to bash on the Knicks all though it would be fun to right now. But the situation in New York really and truly is sad.
It’s crazy how a month ago, the rave of the NBA and the world was a young point guard from Harvard who was stealing the NBA spotlight from mega stars like Wade, James, and Rose. A month ago Mike D’Antoni went from sitting on a hot seat to damn near coach of the month. And a month ago we were wondering if when a certain superstar for the Knicks returned to active duty wouldn’t mess up the winning ways they were on.
And now this;
Carmelo Anthony’s discontent with the Knicks organization became so severe after Monday night’s loss to the Bulls, he told a confidant he preferred to be traded before Thursday’s NBA deadline, The Post has learned.
I think it’s safe to say that there will not be a trade before Thursday. But is it safe to say that D’Antoni is back on the hot seat and will more than likely be gone either before the end of the season or right after? I think so. This isnt what the Knicks need right now.
And Carmelo. Dude isn’t looking good right now. You pouted your way outta Denver and now because things are going rough in New York you want a trade or want the coach fired? (supposedly). Not a good look.
Now the plot thickens and things get interesting.
It will be the first time that Carmelo Anthony, Amare Stoudemire and Jeremy Lin will play together since February 4th against the Nets when Anthony played all but 6 minutes before leaving with his groin injury. Since Stoudemire’s return from his bereavement, he has developed some on court chemistry with Lin.
Now comes Melo. And questions will remain around his play with Jeremy Lin. It’s a legitimate question and one that should not go un asked. Will Lin-sanity continue to reign in New York? Or will Carmelo-ism take over and crush the Lin empire?
We’ll see tonight!
The running joke here in Miami around the Miami Heat is that Eddy Curry is fat. Eddy Curry is lazy. What does Eddy Curry bring your team?
A. retire and chill
B. coach the Los Angeles Lakers
C. coach the New York Knicks
D. come back for a 19th season
Whichever one he will do is yet to be determined. Now that the Thunder’s season is over, Fisher will take some time to decide what’s next.
“It’s not that many hours since postgame at this point,” Fisher said during the team’s exit interviews. “I’m still struggling with the results of last night. I haven’t got a chance to talk to my wife and kind of step back emotionally from the end of the season. That’s important to do, so that whatever is next, there has to be a separation from the end of the season and what just happened and then I can go from there.”
Can Fisher coach a New York Knick team with Carmelo Anthony and an unknown roster for the next year or two until the Knicks can fill that roster with talent? Or would he choose to coach his good friend Kobe Bryant and the youngsters that they will be undoubtedly filling in the next few months?
Choose wisely and carefully D Fish!
It is rather interesting that ex broadcaster Steve Kerr signed a whopping 5 year 25M dollar contract last week with the Golden State Warriors. That is a huge deal for a man who never coached a day in his life. As our good friend ESPN’s Stephen A Smith pointed out, what is that made Kerr such a hot commodity ? Read the rest of this entry »
