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 »

Why The Knicks Are Better Off If Carmelo Leaves

Carmelo Anthony

The New York Knicks have been the most disappointing team in the NBA this year, sitting in ninth place in the Eastern Conference at 33-45. Last season the Knicks finished second in the East, winning 54 games and reached the Eastern Conference Semifinals before falling to Indiana. However, a lot has changed in one season. Read More »

The Top 5 Candidates For NBA Executive of the Year

Bob Myers

While the players receive all of the attention on the court, it is the general managers who construct the teams off the court, in hopes of leading their organizations to great success. Without these executives, it is difficult to fathom how professional franchises would properly function.

At the end of each season, the NBA gives out the Executive of the Year award, which is voted on by executives of the league’s 30 teams. The season is now closer to completion than it is to its start, and the race this year is certainly tight. Read More »

The 10 Best NBA Players Who May Never Be All-Stars

Brandon Jennings

Before the 2014 NBA All-Star Weekend, we knew which studs would be playing, but that was never the fun part. We’d rather talk about who should’ve made it. Did you really think Anthony Davis deserved to be an All-Star before DeMarcus Cousins? The season that Cousins is having still blows my mind that he didn’t make the All-Star team, although we all know why: His team is terrible. Read More »

Andrea Bargnani Tops Forbes’ 2014 List Of The Most Overpaid NBA Players

Andrea Bargnani, Jamal Crawford

Last season, Forbes ranked Carmelo Anthony as the NBA’s most overpaid player. This year, through the first half of the 2013-14 season, Forbes calculates that it’s still a Knick who is the league’s most overpaid. Andrea Bargnani is this season’s most overpaid NBA player, shocking no one, except perhaps former Knicks GM Glen Grunwald who traded for the disappointing former No. 1 pick this summer. Read More »

Pierre the Pelican

Pierre the Pelican (Derick E. Hingle/USA TODAY Sports)

Monster dunks. Nothing-but-net threes. Alley-oops. All are wonderful moments we’ve witnessed so far this season. There have been plenty of good moments: KD‘s recent scoring outburst, ‘Melo‘s record-breaking game, and Greg Oden‘s return… none of which you’ll see on this list. This is dedicated to the bad and the ugly, the plays that left you thinking WTF was that, what were they thinking? This season has been one of the most competitive and fun seasons to watch in recent memory, but it’s only right we have some fun at the halfway point. Read More »

The 20 Biggest Wastes Of Talent In The NBA

Hasheem Thabeet

Every name in this list had the potential to be stars in the NBA but have yet to — or will never — reach it. The list includes players drafted high that were expected to develop into quality professionals and have failed to do so. Most of these players have showed signs of success at times but have not lived up to expectations so far in their career, whether it’s injuries that are the culprits, or perhaps a messy attitude.

Video: Andrea Bargnani’s Epically Bad Dunk Fail

Andrea Bargnani, Thaddeus Young

Listen, this isn’t really fair to the poor Italian in Manhattan who is so rife for ridicule. Andrea Bargnani was the only Knicks starter that was in the black while he was on the court (+5) against the visiting Sixers on Wednesday night. He also scored 20 on 7-of-12 shooting (we won’t get into his defense). But the Knicks lost, and Bargs failed so miserably on a dunk attempt over Thaddeus Young, it summarized the Knicks’ night and possibly their season. Read More »
