We Reminisce: 8-Seed Knicks Upset Heat In First Round

Allan Houston

The 1998-99 New York Knicks entered the postseason with little to no expectations. In fact, they almost didn’t make it in at all. In a strike-shortened season, the Knicks finished with a 27-23 regular season record and as the eighth seed, drew the top-seeded Miami Heat in the first round. We were about to witness one of the most improbable playoff runs in league history. Read More »

We Reminisce: Kemba Walker’s 2011 NCAA Tournament Run

Kemba Walker

I was watching Connecticut play Memphis last Thursday night on ESPN in the American Athletic Conference Quarterfinals and I heard one of the announcers say there is not one individual in UConn’s history whose team leaned on him more during a season than current senior guard Shabazz Napier. Napier won the league’s player of the year honors and has been tremendous this year, but I cannot agree with the statement. What Kemba Walker accomplished during the 2011 college basketball season was truly remarkable and fun to watch. Kemba was the unquestionable leader for the Huskies and the main reason why they won the NCAA championship in 2011. Walker took young players such as Napier and Jeremy Lamb under his wing during the season and put on one of the best performances throughout the month of March that I have ever seen. Read More »

Dwyane Wade, LeBron James, Chris Bosh

The passing of time and subsequent dulling of our memories always makes the past look grander than it actually was. What’s the reason? Simply put, people don’t want to look back with a critical lens at our past. Everyone wants to believe that the icons of their era, whether they reigned in the fields of politics, music or the crux of our discussion, sports, are universally the “best.” Read More »
