Amar’e Stoudemire would accept a role as the New York Knicks’ sixth man if asked, two sources with knowledge of Stoudemire’s thinking told ESPNNewYork.com.
“All he cares about right now is helping the team and winning,” said one source, who has been around Stoudemire regularly in recent weeks. “He’d be fine with coming off the bench if that’s what they want.”
Stoudemire hasn’t spoken with reporters since suffering a left knee injury in the preseason. He’s been rehabilitating his knee following arthroscopic surgery for the past four weeks and is expected to miss at least another Continue reading
Production on here is kinda crazy….
The Ravens wouldn’t have been in a position to go to overtime had Rice not made what might be the play of the year. With 1:59 left in regulation, and the ball at the Ravens’ 37-yard line, quarterback Joe Flacco responded to a fourth-and-29 situation by throwing a little swing pass to Rice that went one yard beyond the line of scrimmage. Under normal circumstances, the receiver would have been tackled a few yards upfield, the Chargers would have taken over on downs, and everyone in Baltimore would have been roasting Cameron and Flacco all week.
Under abnormal circumstances, you get one running back making a supreme effort, pulling through several Chargers defenders, and just barely picking up the first down. The replay assistant upstairs challenged the spot from referee Gene Steratore’s crew, and that took about 10 interminable minutes, but it was eventually ruled a first down. Six plays later, kicker Justin Tucker booted a 38-yard field goal to end regulation and tie the game. And with 1:12 left in overtime, Tucker nailed another 38-yarder to give the Ravens the come-from-behind win — and add another agonizing loss to Norv Turner’s quiver.
The real story was Rice’s historic conversion. According to ESPN Stats & Info, the play was the longest fourth-down conversion since 2001, when the Buffalo Bills converted a fourth-and-34 against the Indianapolis Colts.
You just don’t see plays like this every day. And you don’t see running backs like Ray Rice too often at all.
This is the game a lot of us have been waiting for and it’s finally here! It was rescheduled from Nov. 1st due to Hurricane Sandy. The Knicks head over to Brooklyn to take on the Nets tonight at 7p (you can watch it on TNT).
You know this dunk from Harrison barnes on Nikola Pekovic is insane for a couple of reasons, Barnes cutting full speed to the basket, and David Lee hitting him in stride perfectly with the no-look pass before Barnes elevates and detonates on Pekovic is just flat-out fantastic. Two, just look at the Warriors bench, barely able to contain themselves with excitement after Barnes does the deed, and stares down Pekovic afterward for good measure.
Dwight Howard has always been a jokester even after a team loss. After the Lakers took a humiliating 113-97 loss to the Sacramento Kings, Howard got on the mic on the team airplane and lightened the mood.
The Knicks defense started off red hot this year but the past couple games they’ve taken a slump. One of their most defensive presence’s is guard Iman Shumpert who went out with a torn ACL during the game one of the playoffs last season. We haven’t heard much about his recovery but he might finally have a return date in mind.
Shumpert told The Post recently his target date for return is January, not December. The former Georgia Tech guard will be a dynamo to aid the Knicks’ on-the-ball defense and take pressure off Brewer. Before suffering a torn ACL, Shumpert was among the best perimeter defenders in basketball in his rookie season.
The South Carolina Gamecocks beat the Clemson Tigers 27-17 at Memorial Stadium in Clemson, South Carolina on Saturday night, before a crowd of more than 82,000 fans. It marked the fourth straight season that South Carolina had beaten their arch-rivals.
Gamecocks head coach Steve Spurrier picked up his 65th career win at USC to become the winningest football coach in school history, surpassing Rex Enright.
Back-up quarterback Dylan Thompson, filling in for Connor Shaw who sprained his foot last week against Wofford, threw for three touchdowns, and Jadeveon Clowney had four and a half sacks in the Gamecocks victory. Clowney has 13 sacks this year to set a Gamecocks single-season record.
Now if he will only learn to catch more consistently from Eli Manning!!! Victor Cruz this week made this video of him catching a pass dropped from a plane flying above as a promotional video to help fans vote for him for the pro bowl. Cruz, who has made a lot of big plays this year for the Giants, has also dropped quite a few passes. I’ll be a happy fan if he concentrates on game passes, instead of plane passes, although this video is somewhat cool because you have to figure by the time he catches the ball, it has to be traveling well over 100mph.
