We Reminisce: The New York Knicks And Denver Nuggets Brawl At Madison Square Garden

SI’s Jim Trotter is currently tweeting that the suspensions levied against former and current Saints players for participating in the bounty scandal will be reversed?

And, as a Knicks fan, it got me thinking back to Knicks brawls. Of course I immediately thought of the Knicks-Heat duels, with Jeff Van Gundy clinging to P.J. Brown‘s legs, but I also thought about the Knicks-Nuggets brawl from 2006. Read More »

We Reminisce: Dirk Nowitzki’s Game 7 Three-Point Play In The 2006 Western Conference Semis

The 2006 Western Conference Semis between the Dallas Mavericks and San Antonio Spurs was a series for the ages – Hall of Famers, a seven-game series and gut-wrenching drama. In particular, the Dallas Mavericks had never seen real playoff success until that season. Dirk Nowitzki, as a prelude to his 2011 championship run, poured in 37 points to go along with 15 rebounds in route to the Game 7 win. But the most memorable moment of the series came before that final Game 7 reached overtime, when the Dallas Mavericks were trailing 104-101 in the fourth quarter. Read More »
