VIDEO: Knicks Fan’s YouTube Rant of Year (NSFW)

Forget about write-ups. If you’re a Knicks fan, or even if you’re not, just watch this. CAN’T BELIEVE I missed this. A longtime Knickerbocker backer goes off following the team’s embarrassing 41-point blowout home loss to the Boston Celtics on December 8th. Quite possibly, the best YouTube sports rant I’ve ever witnessed. This man speaks […]

Houston Rockets sing "I Have a Little Dreidel" in honor of hanukkah's first night

Houston Rockets sing “I Have a Little Dreidel” in honor of hanukkah’s first night

The Houston Rockets once again took to the video camera and Interwebs to make sure Hanukkah gets its just due. To celebrate the first night of the festival of lights, players sung along to the classic jam “I Had a Little Dreidel.” The results are predictably fantastic. Nicely done, Rockets.

Reminded that Melo just isn't among the NBA's truly elite players

Reminded that Melo just isn’t among the NBA’s truly elite players

There are some moments that bring things to light that you knew were there. Instances that provide clarity based on contrast. Last night’s Knicks-Bulls game was one of those occasions. It was a subtle reminder to any of those delusional Knicks fans (of whom there are droves) that NO, Carmelo Anthony isn’t among the NBA’s […]

Metta World Peace Rocks Subway From Queensbridge to MSG Debut

Metta World Peace Rocks Subway From Queensbridge to MSG Debut

I’ve got to admit it. Misguided or not, the signing of Metta World Peace was by far my favorite move Knicks move this offseason. Sure, he promises some occasionally unwanted entertainment (although he guarantees some high-quality comedic relief too). And, yes, he’s getting older and his health worries me. That said, it’s great to see […]

Chris Smith Makes the Knicks and Reminds Us How Ridiculous the Knicks Really Are

Chris Smith Makes the Knicks and Reminds Us How Ridiculous the Knicks Really Are

When I was a college kid pledging a fraternity, we occasionally talked about “package deals.”  It was in the context of rush. Hey, we can’t give this kid a bid unless we give this one, they’re a “package deal.” Whenever that kind of talk popped up, it got quickly squashed. It was stupid. You should […]

Serge Ibaka as Prince Akeem Wins Halloween Early

Serge Ibaka as Prince Akeem Wins Halloween Early

This is just fantastic stuff via SB Nation.   My personal passion for Halloween may have faded but that doesn’t mean I don’t appreciate a winner. Check this out from Oklahoma City Thunder big man Serge Ibaka. Really, what else needs to be said? Apparently, this is what Ibaka rocked to a Halloween-themed party hosted by […]

Saying Goodbye to A.I. and Remembering the Garden in 1996

Saying Goodbye to A.I. and Remembering the Garden in 1996

It was March of 1996, and I was 19 years-old. To be honest, I can’t remember why we had tickets for the Big East Championship game at Madison Square Garden or what I was even doing home (Spring break?). I do know Mom and I were not too far from the floor, and I could […]

J.R. Smith Bought a Half-Million Dollar Armored Truck

J.R. Smith Bought a Half-Million Dollar Armored Truck

From the NY POST: NBA star J.R. Smith spent some of the $24 million he scored in a four-year deal with the New York Knicks on a flashy new armored truck. Smith, who’s recovering after surgery on his left knee in the off-season, rolled up to Meatpacking District restaurant Catch on Thursday night in a […]

Fired Up Houston Rockets Kid Fan Calls Out Shaq

Fired Up Houston Rockets Kid Fan Calls Out Shaq

Where are the real fans at? Not the posers who just show up for the playoffs. The ones following their teams day in and day out — even in the off season. Fans who take serious offense to people talking any trash about their players, their team or their hometown. You know, fans like this […]

Golden State salutes its fans

Golden State salutes its fans

Time is short these days, so what’s making it here is only the good stuff. This moment, from after the Warriors loss last night to San Antonio, certainly qualifies. Golden State took me — and most other casual or hardcore NBA fans — for quite the postseason ride. The Warriors became my must-watch team during […]

Knicks open round two with a thud

Knicks open round two with a thud

The Knicks are looking like the worst versions of themselves at exactly the wrong time. Sunday afternoon’s 102-95 loss to the Pacers at Madison Square Garden was a reminder of just how hard it’s going to be for this team, particularly in its recent games’ incarnation, to even win a game in this series let […]

Give me five Joakim Noahs, please

Give me five Joakim Noahs, please

I used to hate Joakim Noah. No reason really. Just ignorance. Probably looked at the histrionics and the off-the-court stuff and just thought this kid was a punk trying to play basketball. A proverbial “energy guy” whose biggest asset was pissing off one of the opposing team’s stars. Consider this the sincerest and most emphatic […]
