Report: Knicks Looking To Deal Stoudemire To Sixers

Amar'e Stoudemire

You can’t fault Phil Jackson for trying. The New York Knicks’ President has reportedly contacted the Philadelphia 76ers in hopes of shedding Amar’e Stoudemire’s ballooned salary to gain more flexibility in free agency. Nevertheless, it’s doubtful even the Zen Master can pull-off the necessary mind trick it would take for Philly to agree to such a deal. Read More »

Amar'e Stoudemire

Amar’e Stoudemire‘s 5-year, $100 million contract will be off the books at the end of the 2014-15 season — though he has an early termination option he’s unlikely to use.

And did anyone expect the Portland Trail Blazers or Phoenix Suns to overachieve as much as they have so far? Read More »

Arnett Moultrie, Amar'e Stoudemire

Lost in the losing shuffle that the Knicks 2013-14 season has become — except during their current winning streak — is embattled forward Amar’e Stoudemire. STAT has been in and out of the lineup over the last couple seasons as he continues to figure out what he can do on knees that have long ago lost the buffer of cartilage. But during New York’s fourth consecutive victory over the Sixers Monday night, Stoudemire showed Thaddeus Young he’s still got some explosion in those worn down knees. Read More »

The 10 Most Exciting Teams In NBA History

As an NBA fan, there is nothing worse than watching a boring basketball game. Every few years we get lucky to witness a team that displays an absurd amount of showmanship on the court; a current example is “The Lob City” Clippers.
