GIF: Tyreke Evans Performs Impressive “Moonwalk” Travel That Goes Uncalled

Tyreke Evans, Nene

It’s hard to be an NBA ref. We try our best to give them the benefit of the doubt, but they’re often found by fans to be lacking.

Fortunately, expectations are low for the Knicks this season — though, not according to the people we follow on Twitter. With that in mind, it’s best to just focus on any improvements. Regardless of New York’s troubles, Quincy Acy did his best to try and rip the iron off the backboard on a dunk that’s making the poor rim at MSG continue to vibrate in fear. Read More »

The Pelicans jumped out to a 14-point first-quarter lead against the Wizards tonight in preseason action, and pushed it to 20 by the half.
