Is it time we start taking New York seriously? We’ll have to wait until Amar’e Stoudemire comes back from his latest knee setback, and Carmelo Anthony gets pushed back to the three to see if this level of play holds up. But what else can we say? ‘Melo (21 points last night) has looked like he’s ready to finally embrace basic basketball principles like rebounding, defending and not holding the ball every time you touch it, and New York is getting contributions from everyone.

You could have crammed an entire postseason’s worth of story lines into last night’s Game 4 of the NBA Finals. Which would be a big help to us, because Miami’s 104-98 win over OKC was so incredible and intense that we almost forgot all about the other stories from these playoffs that led up to it … As usual, it starts with LeBron.

Does anyone else find it strange that the hottest months for basketball take place during the coldest months in America? All-Star Weekend. Trade Deadline. March Madness. For a sport played year-round, February and March are by far the most exciting times for the game we love. While tertiary fans may not start paying attention to the NBA or NCAA until after the BCS National Championship or Super Bowl are over, us diehards are waiting, ready to tell them everything they missed.
