And so, curing the Lakers’ five-game start of discontent might come down to this: whose knee heals faster, Phil Jackson‘s or Mike D’Antoni‘s? In case you’ve been living under a rock you know the Lakers fired Mike Brown as head coach Friday morning, pulling him out of a coaches meeting to do so. Read More »
TAG: Rasheed Wallace
We don’t know anything concrete about the future of this season – our crystal ball broke a few weeks ago and the Ouija board was tossed long ago. We have our ideas – here’s who we think will take home MVP – but we don’t know, for example whether this Houston Rockets team will contend in the Western Conference. This team will, however, be fun to watch. It’s like this is an “Out to Prove Ourselves” multi-city, national stadium tour sweeping across America. Read More »
When you have a roster that features Carmelo Anthony, Raymond Felton and presumably Rasheed Wallace, conditioning and getting in shape is vital. That is something that is not lost on the New York Knicks, which is presumably why they kicked off training camp yesterday with a 3.5 hour practice that was reportedly heavy on conditioning.
One problem: ‘Sheed wasn’t there for it. Read More »
Well, there are certainly worse ways to open up a new arena. The Barclays Center opened for business Friday in Brooklyn with a Jay-Z-headlined show. We felt like we were there thanks to all the updates and photos we saw blowing up social media. Read More »
With word breaking that Rasheed Wallace is about to officially become a New York Knick, we had to quickly put together this video compilation of some of ‘Sheed’s greatest hits on and off the court.
Simply amazing (especially the clips from “MTV Cribs”): Read More »
Somewhere along the way, Jason Terry became more reliable than a Chinese fortune cookie. Maybe it was the first time he guaranteed a title with a tattoo. Or maybe it was during the ’11 Finals when he predicted LeBron couldn’t hold him down all series, and then went out and lit up the King. Or maybe it was this summer when we all saw him repeat the tattoo prediction again, and miraculously didn’t think it was all that crazy. Terry isn’t the guy you want to see on the other end of the Blackjack table right now. Read More »
Rasheed Wallace‘s game might’ve fallen off a long time ago (reports are still indicating the Knicks are interested), but it appears his penchant for berating officials and talking trash hasn’t wavered. Check out this mix from his summer at the North Carolina Pro-Am, where pretty much everyone gets an ear full from ‘Sheed. Read More »
Yesterday we told you here about what “The Association” will let us know about the Brooklyn Nets. Out West there’s a team with just as much intrigue and as many new parts: the Dallas Mavericks. Last year’s storyline was about how Dirk Nowitzki had some of his lowest averages of his career last season thanks to a bum knee and being in pretty bad shape after the lockout. That’s all behind him, he promises. Read More »
Austin Rivers must’ve known I was there because he tied the perfect bow to the end of a trip that started in Hoboken, New Jersey and ended with a once-defeaning crowd of 21,750 eerily silent. The buzzer beater that won it for Duke set off hysteria for the party behind Duke’s bench – Doc Rivers and his crew – but for the rest of us there, it was more quiet than the school’s library. If you’ve been keeping up with my posts the last few days, you know I was in New Jersey for the launch of the Air Jordan 2012, and that Jordan Brand also brought me down to Chapel Hill to see one of the biggest rivalries in all of basketball up close and personal.
