NBA GM Says He’d Take Tyler Ennis Over Kyrie Irving

Tyler Ennis, Gerry McNamara

We knew Syracuse freshman Tyler Ennis was good, and preternatural when it came to what you want in a team’s point guard, but a recent revelation by ESPN’s Chad Ford jumped out at us because it toes the line of hyperbole. Still, the more we thought about it, the more it kind of makes sense.

Boost Mobile Presents A Carmelo Anthony Miniseries Directed By Spike Lee

So who’s ready for a sh*tstorm of drama over the Knicks (mis)handling of Carmelo Anthony‘s knee injury?

This made its way around the web yesterday, but we wanted to bring it to you this Friday afternoon in case you missed it.
