Los Angeles Lakers
WFAN’s Mike Francesa lit into the Knicks something fierce on Wednesday, following their historic meltdown against the woeful Lakers in Los Angeles the night before.
With Knicks President Phil Jackson watching from a luxury suite high above the court, his new team’s teetering playoff hopes got a big shove from his old team’s incredible offensive show.
Magic says he’ll probably have a chat with Melo on Tuesday. But don’t worry. They won’t be speaking about the benefits of joining the Lakers.
The press conference is presumably to introduce Phil Jackson as the newest member of the Knicks’ front office. What his position will be is not yet known, thought reports have suggested that he’ll be named director of basketball operations.
Two Lakers greats are chucking up a half-court shot at the buzzer, campaigning Los Angeles brass to swoop in and hire the Zen Master. Will it go in?
Sources have said Phil Jackson is close to agreeing to become the next Head of Basketball Operations for the Knicks, with a deal that could be finalized by the end of the week.
Jason Collins played his first game with the Brooklyn Nets on Sunday night, becoming the first openly gay active player in the four major U.S. professional sports leagues.
Carmelo Anthony followed his 62-point game with 35 more, and the New York Knicks beat the Los Angeles Lakers, 110-103, on Sunday.
The trade was proposed before Brooklyn’s center suffered a foot injury that ended his season prematurely. Lopez will undergo surgery to fix the fractured fifth metatarsal in his right foot on Saturday.
For all of Mike D’Antoni’s faults, it’s hard to say he wouldn’t be doing a better job with these Knicks than Mike Woodson is. It’s been that bad.
When Kobe Bryant returned to the court on December 8 following months of rehab on the repaired left Achilles he’d torn in April, he did so confidently – at least in words. In actions, not so much.
Nets head coach Jason Kidd appeared to tell Tyshawn Taylor to “hit me” as the guard walked toward the bench. Taylor then bumped into the Nets’ head coach, causing Kidd to spill a cup of soda on the court.
Wesley Johnson made the tiebreaking basket on a steal and dunk with 1:35 left, and the Los Angeles Lakers blew a 27-point lead before beating the Nets 99-94 on Wednesday night.
This summer I made a promise that I wouldn’t address Carmelo Anthony’s impending opt-out until the season was over. Thanks to Melo’s foolish interview with the New York Observer, I’m being forced to break that rule in October.
Anthony has finally acknowledged what we knew all along. When the opportunity to opt out of his contract comes, he’ll likely jump on it.
