Knicks 2010 Summer League Roster

Due to the Knicks involvement with NBA free agency, it’s unclear how many roster spots are open. Chandler, Curry, Douglas, Gallo, Walker and Stoudemire along with recently acquired Anthony Randolph, Ronny Turiaf and Kelenna Azubuike make 9. If you add their draft picks Fields, Rautins, and Jordan that makes 12. Potentially the team might sign a few more free agents and could still bring back Barron, Bender, Giddens, or House. That doesn’t make for a lot of roster spots open. But enough that a few guys could make the team. Already On the Roster Toney Douglas, PG – Last year …continue reading

LeBron James Chooses The Miami Heat

And so life goes on. LeBron James did not choose New York. For Knick fans it shouldn’t come as a surprise. There was only a slim chance that LeBron was coming to New York anyway. It would have been great for Knick fans to instantly bring back the excitement of the 70s and 90s. James would have been hailed as a hero. Would have been one of us. Would have been the biggest sports star in the biggest metropolis. Would have been the King of New York. But that didn’t appeal to LeBron, and hence made his decision to go …continue reading

Top 10 Ways the LeBron Special Goes Down

10. LeBron announces his decision 30 seconds into the special, then turns to stunned ESPN studio guy and says back to you. 9. James encourages viewing audience to play a drinking game with him. Every time an ESPN montage shows a dunk – drink! 8. LeBron reveals that we’re all in a sideways universe, and that we should be remembering soon that we are all friends. Except for Ben Linus. 7. James decides he’s going to remain in Cleveland, but instead of the Cavs selects to play for minor league baseball team the Akron Aeros. Says he needs to get …continue reading

James’ Decision Will Reveal His Character

With just one day left before LeBron James chooses his free agent destination, I thought I’d look at the options from James’ perspective. Cleveland – James must feel the love from his hometown if he’s still considering Cleveland. The Cavs haven’t done an awful job putting a team around him, like Minnesota did with Kevin Garnett. However the team hasn’t been able to lure any major players to Ohio. Amar’e didn’t seem interested (either this year or last) and Bosh didn’t want to go either. For them to give up teaming with LeBron for an eventual ring doesn’t speak well …continue reading

Knicks Sign Amar’e

According to Adrian Wojnarowski, the New York Knicks have signed Amar’e Stoudemire to a 5 year $100M contract. For New York this is the first step in Donnie Walsh’s rebuilding plan which began in the summer of 2008. The Knicks seemed to be an obvious fit for Stoudemire, given Mike D’Antoni’s 4 and a half seasons in Phoenix. Although the Knicks haven’t ruled out a Lee-Amar’e pairing, it’s likely that Stoudemire will replace him as the team’s power forward/center. Last year STAT attempted free throws and blocked shots at more than double the rate, and provided more scoring at a …continue reading
