If you’re the schadenfreude sort, you should still hold your tongue. Patrick Beverley, the pest of a point guard for the Rockets — who has annoyed everyone from Russell Westbrook to Blazers stud Damian Lillard – left last night’s game against the Sixers with what was reported at the time as a sprained knee. But Yahoo Sports reports Beverley has torn his meniscus and is listed as out “indefinitely.” Read More »

Watch Metta World Peace Dance With Cookie Monster & The Jabbawockeez

Metta World Peace, Jabbawockeez

Since agreeing to a buyout with the Knicks in February, Metta World Peace hasn’t been signed by another team as a free agent. His brother has intimated he might have an interest in joining Detroit, but so far he’s still unsigned. While looking for the next team he can help, since his attempts at leadership with the Knicks went unappreciated, Peace found some time to dance with the Jabbawokeez with an assist from Cookie Monster.

The NBA Playoffs are still a good two months away, but that doesn’t mean teams haven’t begun preparing and planning their rosters for the home stretch. Why? March 1 marks the last day a player can be waived and still sign with a new team and be eligible to play in the playoffs (players who have yet to play in the NBA this season have until the final day of the regular season to sign with a playoff team).

Metta World Peace let the world know on Twitter today that his agent was working on a buyout from the Knicks. He has nothing but love for his hometown of New York and Knicks fans in general, but remained largely mum about the reasons he’s decided to seek a buyout. His brother, Daniel Artest, wasn’t so covert. Daniel Artest has been lobbing grenades at the Knicks organization on his own Twitter account, calling out coach Mike Woodson, the Knicks PR department, and the organization as a whole secure in the knowledge his brother is done in New York’s blue and orange.

During Oklahoma State’s 65-61 loss at Texas Tech on Saturday, super sophomore point guard Marcus Smart was assessed a technical with a few seconds remaining after pushing a Texas Tech fan. Following the conclusion of the game, Smart said the fan, supposed “No. 1 Texas Tech fan” Jeff Orr, used a racial slur, which precipitated his reaction. Orr claims otherwise, but admitted he felt bad about what he said. Read More »

There’s a clear difference in a team that’s attempting to tank and a team that is flat out bad. There are teams that are constructed to be bad. Take the Philadelphia 76ers for example. The roster consists of players like Elliot Williams, Lorenzo Brown, James Anderson and Brandon Davies. Bless your soul if you know who any of those players are. Read More »

With an NBA offseason that’s about five months long, it’s always curious how much can change in such a short amount of time. Some players can go from unknown names to All-Stars and other players may look like they left all their basketball talent on some beach somewhere. One must wonder if some of this drop in production is from a lack of offseason training, old age or just a loss of talent. Whatever the case is, this season has showcased a few players that have fallen off. Here are 10 of the most noticeable. Read More »

20 NBA Players Who Could Beat Up Deebo

The movie Friday, the 1995 stoner flick featuring Ice Cube and Chris Tucker, has become a cult classic over the years. I wanted to begin with a nice quote from the movie, but they all read like a Matt Barnes tweet. Anyway, the film surrounds a 16-hour period in which two unemployed bums (Craig and Smokey, played by Cube and Tucker respectively) must pay a local drug dealer $200 or risk facing his wrath.

Former St. John’s star and Queensbridge native Ron Art—Metta World Peace took an unusual route to Madison Square Garden last night for the Knicks home opener against the Bucks. We say unusual with the caveat that he’s a professional basketball player. We — like most of the masses — ride the subway to every basketball game we see. Metta rode the F Train to the game though, and proved once again he’s a populist player of the people. Read More »

Metta World Peace Says The Knicks Have A Chance To Be A Top Defensive Team This Season

The Knicks’ spread-the-floor offense was one of the best last season, but after the first couple weeks of games, their rigorous defense under coach Mike Woodson, faltered. They went on to claim the No. 3 seed in the East, but their porous execution on the defensive end helped Indiana eliminate them in the second round. Now, summer acquisition Metta World Peace says the Knicks have a chance to become one of the best defensive teams in the league. While a nice goal, the optimism is hooey, and most preseason stats can attest. Read More »
