The Nets opened the Barclays Center in winning fashion as they defeated the Toronto Raptors 107-100.
I want to see if the Knicks can do a better job slowing down LeBron James and Dwyane Wade. Both players got into the lane way too easily last year against the Knicks. The Knicks have to play the pick-and-roll better and improve their individual defense.
It was an honest mistake from Stern. But the crowd heard it — and then he heard it from the crowd.
All in all, until Stoudemire gets back, here’s how I see Woodson breaking down the 240 minutes available in an NBA game.
NBA Commissioner David Stern will retire in February 2014, 30 years after he took charge of the league. He will be replaced by Deputy Commissioner Adam Silver.
I will miss one thing: Jeff Van Gundy ranting about floppers during national telecasts. I guess we can’t have it all.
It’s time for the league’s owners to voice their concerns and let Bettman know that he does not have the authority to ruin the NHL. The fans need to get louder and voice their concerns as well. The time is now, or the season will be gone before you know it.
David Stern may push for a change in the future that would turn the Olympics into a competition for players who are 23 years old or under, keeping older players from getting hurt and might even make the games a bit more competitive.
Overpowering and dominant in a way not seen since the 1992 Dream Team, the Americans are now two wins from a second straight Olympic gold medal. Argentina awaits.
CBS Sports Network analyst and former first-round pick Wally Szczerbiak joined CBS Local Sports to give perspective as to what the prospects are going through on the biggest night of their basketball lives.
Williams says all he can do today, and for the rest of his life, is apologize for his wrongs and crimes and start to move ahead, grateful for a second chance, with God on his side.
David Stern’s recent appearance on Jim Rome’s radio show made headlines because the commissioner didn’t like the fact that Rome had the nerve to ask him about the draft lottery.
“Was the fix in for the lottery?” Jim Rome asked during a contentious radio interview Wednesday. After some debate over the legitimacy of the question, Stern said: “Have you stopped beating your wife yet?”
Talk about a big winner. In addition to landing the top overall selection that will wind up being Kentucky big man Anthony Davis, the Hornets also have the tenth overall pick.
I don’t care how “competitive” you are, how “passionate” you are or “what bad timing” it was. Nice try, but blaming that elbow on “two powerhouses colliding” is a lame excuse.
