Giglio: Nets’ Process Of Becoming Contenders Must Be Praised

For years, aside from the Jason Kidd era, the Nets had no chance to compete for a championship. Now they do.

Giglio: Comparisons In Professional Sports Need To Stop

Matt Harvey isn’t the next Roger Clemens, Zack Wheeler isn’t the next A.J. Burnett and LeBron James isn’t the next Michael Jordan.

Giglio: As Summer Begins, Mets And Yankees Are Who We Thought They Were

From the moment that spring training opened until today, the Mets were pegged to be bad and the Yankees looked like a team that would struggle to reach October. Three months later, that’s exactly who they are.

Giglio: MLB’s Motives And Methods Almost As Seedy As PED Cheats

As the sport presents the bad guys to you via suspensions over the next few months, don’t forget the folks who oversaw the actions in the past and did nothing until it was too late.

Giglio: Mets’ GM Sandy Alderson Is Ringmaster In The Ike Davis Circus

Sending Ike Davis down to Triple-A potentially could harm his already damaged psyche. Either way, Sandy Alderson must make a decision now.

Giglio: Knicks Head Coach Mike Woodson Deserves Credit For Adjusting

As the chess match continues on Saturday night in Indiana, trust Woodson. It took five games, but he once again has the pulse of his team against Indiana’s strengths and weaknesses.

Giglio: Returning Knick Stoudemire Could Be Insurance For J.R. Smith’s Slump

Expecting Amar’e to be a 30-minute contributor isn’t realistic, but his ability to score in the low post for 10-15 minutes per game could prove invaluable

Giglio: Knicks-Celtics Series Is Far From 2004 Yankees-Red Sox ALCS

Outside of the cities that the respective teams represent, there is little that connects the 2004 Yankees and Red Sox to the 2013 Knicks and Celtics.

Giglio: For Once, Defensive Picks Can’t Be Rex Ryan’s Preference

Don’t let the defensive picks from Thursday night change your understanding of the reality. If Ryan truly yielded power in that war room, the offense would be trotting out new weapons on Friday.

Giglio: Despite Accolades, Harvey Hasn’t Reached Strasburg’s Level Yet

It’s not ridiculous to say that Harvey will turn out to be a more durable and superior pitcher than Strasburg. It’s just way too early to make that claim. Heading into Friday evening’s showdown at Citi, Strasburg is the superior arm.

Giglio: 3 Seasons Down, 1 To Go — Who Are The Real Knicks?

There are four games left, and the most important question remains unanswered: When the playoffs begin, which Knicks team will take the floor?

Giglio: Mike Rice Fallout Puts Further Damper On Collegiate Athletics, Final Four

The jig is up for the NCAA. No longer is the product pure or different than the money-grabbing, greedy professional product. Enjoy the Final Four for what it is this weekend: Basketball. Nothing more, nothing less.

Giglio: Don’t Forget The Greatness Of Johan Santana

If Johan Santana’s last pitch in a New York Mets uniform was his 93rd and final offering to the Washington Nationals’ lineup on August 17, 2012, it’s likely that fans will soon forget the dominant, Hall of Fame caliber pitcher that he once was.

Giglio: Captaincy Is Just The Start — Wright Could Be The Greatest Met Ever

Wright isn’t just “Captain America” or Mr. Met or the fourth captain in franchise history. He has a chance to go down as the greatest player in franchise history.

Giglio: Striking Quickly Won’t Benefit Jets In Potential Revis Deal

It’s likely that 2013 will be a tough year for the Jets. That’s why they can’t afford to suffer their first true loss this weekend by speeding up a Revis deal.
