(Sports) Video:Knicks Iman Shumpert New Rap Video

New York Knicks guard Iman Shumpert has had alot of time on his hands since he is out with a knee injury since last year. Most Knicks fans like myself can’t wait until he is back out there on the court. In the mean time Shumpert has been in the studio rapping and came out with a studio verison of the Knicks Anthem he rapped about back in October.

 

(Sports) Knicks Destroyed Heat again

A sharpshooting New York Knicks team connected on 18 3-pointers to dominate the suddenly struggling Miami Heat for the second time this season, winning 112-92 on Thursday.

(Sports) HOLD UP! Amar’e Stoudemire Willing To Take Bench Role With Knicks

 

I was surprised when I read this.  I wouldn’t think Stat would be ok with riding the pine, but it’s great to see that he’s being a team player!

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

(Sports) Knicks’ Iman Shumpert Targets January Return From Torn ACL

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.

(Sports) Raymond Felton: “I AM NOT LIN”!

I know Raymond Felton circled this game on his calender when he came back to NY. He wants to make sure New York fans are happy Jeremy Lin is gone, and that Felton is running the show. Felton was definitely salty at the Knicks 2 years ago when they traded him to bring Carmelo to NY, even though he had just signed a new contract with them. But so far Felton seems to be thriving in NY in his second run with the team, and he definitely wants it to be known Jeremy Lin is not on his level.

“I’ve been in this league eight years,” Felton said. “He’s been in this league half of a year, coming into a year now. I definitely can’t see how nobody can compare me and him together. I’ve been in this league way longer, got much more of a body of work.”

(Sports) NBA: Dwyane Wade Donating Salary From Knicks/Heat Game To Charity

Dwayne Wade was under fire for a tweet he made yesterday that ended up being a complete misunderstanding.  Now he’s even doing something about it.  I applaud Wade for this.  It’s always great to see celebs/athletes giving back!

Wade said Friday’s Heat-Knicks game at Madison Square Garden in storm-ravaged New York City should have been postponed, and he told USA TODAY Sports he will donate his salary from the game to charity.

When it comes to road venues, “It’s my favorite place to play,” Wade told USA TODAY Sports of the Garden. “But just knowing a lot of people here and knowing what they’ve been going through with no power, no water, no food … to me, it just seems like there’s bigger things to be concerned about than a basketball game.

(Sports) Carmelo Anthony Covers ESPN Magazine, But Why Does He Look Like That?!

I’m still waiting for my copy of ESPN Magazine to come in the mail *taps fingers* but the pic on the cover is a little nervous.  I’m so happy our guy Melo is on the cover, but he’s looking a lil crazy!  His eyes kinda look cartoonish – It almost looks like wax figure, but pretty sure it’s just a bad photoshop job (C’mon ESPN!).

(Sports) NY Knicks Could Become the Oldest Team in NBA History

“In July, when the Knicks lost then 23-year-old Jeremy Lin to the Houston Rockets, they picked up Pablo Prigioni (35), Marcus Camby (38), Jason Kidd (39) and Kurt Thomas (40 this week). The Knicks expect 38-year-old Rasheed Wallace, who retired in 2010, to sign with them this week. General manager Glen Grunwald said the transactions undoubtedly improved the team. ‘We don’t think we got older. We feel we got more experienced and better,’ he said, adding that these are ‘some hungry veterans that know how to win and are still very good players.’ He cited Kidd and Wallace winning titles elsewhere, and Camby having previously won the defensive-player-of-the-year award. ‘We can play,’ Camby said, bristling at the notion that he and other players might need days off during the season to stay fresh. ‘Otherwise the organization wouldn’t have brought us in here.’ […] The 2012 Knicks will be almost five years older than they were last year, when the average player was 27 years and 300 days old. Assuming Wallace signs, their top 13 players would be, on average, 32 years and 240 days old—the oldest team in NBA history, according to Stats LLC. No team has ever gotten so much older from one season to the next.”
