Raptors 96, Knicks 79

New York Knicks 79 Final Recap | Box Score 96 Toronto Raptors Carmelo Anthony, SF 30 MIN | 6-15 FG | 0-0 FT | 9 REB | 3 AST | 12 PTS | -19 Carmelo Anthony has the most wonderful shot-put in the history of basketball. For someone with such picture-perfect form, Melo’s hoists have been orbiting an entirely different cylinder lately. When he attacks the rim, he’s far more effective, but also far more prone to having his stuff snuffed or sent off the backboard. Still, at this point I’ll take Melo getting blocked over Melo finding new and …continue reading

2012 Game Thread: Knicks v. ‘Ptors

For all your in-game thoughts, eh. Beat them Hosers! And if you’re in a more serious vein, take a look at my scribbling from earlier today on Trayvon Martin and Amar’e Stoudemire, who evidently wore his hoodie during tonight’s shootaround in solidarity. (H/T to the great Seth Rosenthal of Postingandtoasting.com)  

On the Miami Heat, Trayvon Martin and the Intersection of Sports and Politics

Well now, I certainly didn’t see this coming. As a response to the recent shooting of Trayvon Martin, the Miami Heat have decided to publicly weigh in on the controversy, taking a photo of the entire team wearing hoodies. The photo was disseminated by LeBron James on Twitter with the inclusion of the hashtags, “#WeAreTrayvonMartin #Hoodies #Stereotyped #WeWantJustice.” Dwyane Wade added to his teammates’ statement on Friday in the Orlando Sun Sentinel: “I’m a father. It’s support of the tragic thing that has taken place. No matter what color, race, we’re all fathers. When you think about what that family’s …continue reading

[New York Post] Amar’e returns to form during Knicks’ streak (Fri, 23 Mar 2012 04:59:40 -0500) TORONTO â?? After two of his rim-rattling dunks in Philadelphia Wednesday night, Amar’e Stoudemire looked up at the crowd filled with Knicks fans, howled, and flexed his muscles. Mike D’Antoni is gone, but Stoudemire, his chief supporter, is back. And Stoudemire vowed he will stay this good. “I felt… [New York Post] Game to be broadcast Lin Mandarin (Fri, 23 Mar 2012 04:21:30 -0500) TORONTO â??

Somewhat Quick Reaction: Knicks @ Sixers

New York Knicks 82 Final Recap | Box Score 79 Philadelphia 76ers Carmelo Anthony, SF 34 MIN | 5-15 FG | 0-1 FT | 5 REB | 2 AST | 10 PTS | +1 I take exception with anyone who calls Anthony a one dimensional chucker. Clearly, he is a multi-dimensional chucker. No, his shot still isn’t falling but the fact that teams still need to commit the defense to him opens things up for his teammates. This was on brilliant display on a deft touch assist to Stoudemire out of a double team. I just hope he doesnt forget …continue reading
