When did Steve Novak make a deal with the devil?

Because MAN he was on fire tonight! He must have traded his soul because those 3 pointers just kept on comin! 5 out of 8 three pointers and the game ain’t over yet! And Carmelo is racking up the points today too! 30 points (as of right now).

I am so disappointed in the Heat today…It was such a messy game. Haslem, dude you were all over the place. Sloppy passes, too many turnovers and that goes for everyone. You too Lebron…5 turnovers = unacceptable! Our defense was horrible, I don’t know what it was today. We didn’t even have the opportunity to take many shots… Our shooting percentage was only at 35% compared to the Knicks’ almost 53% shooting.

It’s okay, the Heat will get their shit together! We’ll be ready!

And I’m glad Rasheed Wallace got to play a little today. Did you all hear coach say, “Wallace, want to play son?” And all the fans were cheering which was pretty cute. Hey, I wanted Wallace for the Lakers but turns out he started those rumors on his own. Oh well. Glad to see him back.

And it is official, the Thunder royally F***** up trading James Harden. He scored 45 points today! (I still don’t like the guy, but I’m just saying).

And before I go, there’s another hilarious Blake Griffin Kia Optima commercial.

He goes back to when he was a kid…just watch it. It’s so fuckin funny. Ahh… I still hate you Blake Griffin. The other one where he goes back in time isn’t as funny, so just watch this one.

I hope the Lakers beat the Clippers…it’s too late for me to watch it here. Ugh. I need to go to sleep.

BOOO BLAKE GRIFFIN! That should have him airballing free throws for now. Night.

He’s on Fire! Boom Shaka Laka!

What better way to start a blog entry than with clips of Marc Gasol pulverizing Slop City’s own Bitch Griffin.

Here’s one where Marc just crushes Griffin’s foot.

And then the one everyone saw last night of Marc falling on top of Prissy Pants Griffin.

OUCH!

And watch Wade just smack the ball right out of Carmelo’s hands.

You’re not scoring on my turf BITCH!

Let’s watch that again but with Lebron and Tyson Chandler. Love those clean blocks! The Knicks didn’t even stand a chance in Hell against the Heat. Well, at least they stopped their 20 game playoff losing streak. Yay? Hahaha.

God I love playoffs season.

I think Amare’s cornrows are a bit TOO tight

So Amare severely cut his hand. Didn’t see it during the game?

Well that’s because Amare apparently punched a fire extinguisher case from the frustration of losing to the Heat two playoffs game in a row.

I mean I’d be angry too but is it really a smart idea to do something that would result in more losses for the Knicks?

Come on Amare.

Lose the cornrows and the anger problem. The Heat and Lebron can’t be stopped and it’s not his fault.

But the Knicks need Amare especially since Iman Shumpert was hurt in the first playoffs game against the Heat.

Amare will be out for at least 2 games…but at this rate there will ONLY be two more games…

So much for that.

And Rondo’s been suspended for a game after being ejected yesterday for yelling at a ref.

This season and post season has just been so crazy.

Money Shot!

Hey you guys!

IT’S MY BIRTHDAY TODAY! But I’ll do a full update about my birthday later. I still have all day to enjoy it.

But…just in case you guys missed it here’s Manny Harris’ money shot last night against the Knicks!

I think the Bulls have the game today against the Mavs.

We’ll see if the Jazz can keep their spot in the Western conference or if the Suns can make a last push towards making the playoffs.

Their loss today against the Nuggets really didn’t help anything either.

Back to watching the game.

BEST BIRTHDAY EVER!

JR Smith’s at it again!

So I woke up this morning with an email from a blog subscription from Ubiquitousdark and of course it’s about J.R. Smith getting fined…AGAIN.

No, this time it wasn’t for missing practice to go play with his panda.

It was for posting a pic of “The BIGGEST ASS EVER” on his Twitter.

Why does the NBA care?

So there’s a moral clause in every NBA contract. Sounds standard enough right?

The team has the right to terminate a contract if the player “at any time fails, refuses or neglects to conform his personal conduct to standards of good citizenship, good moral character (defined here to mean not engaging in acts of moral turpitude, whether or not such acts would constitute a crime), and good sportsmanship, to keep himself in first-class physical condition, or to obey the team’s training rules.”

WTF is Moral Turpitude you ask?

It doesn’t really have an EXACT definition but it’s more or less engaging in acts of vileness, depravity and something other than what he/she owes to his fellow man and neighbor. Because of the changing times on what is accepted or not the basis for moral turpitude has been to change as well. So basically it’s engaging in something different from the norm.

Does this constitute as that? It’s on the internet. He’s his own man. It’s not an NBA affiliated site.

I mean the contract says they could terminate him but a huge slap in the face fine? Really?

You’d think the NBA would cut him some slack after what happened in China. At this rate he’s going to be like the Delonte West of the Knicks. Why do we even pay J.R. Smith a salary?

And I KNOW there are other NBA players engaged in a whole lot of moral turpitude but you don’t see them getting fined over it. Weird.

If you want to see the original pic it’s out there on the internet. I just thought this picture was funnier.

Oh~ J.R. Smith…what are we going to do with you?

Linsanity

In honor of Mark buying me tickets to see the Lakers vs Timberwolves game I thought it about time to write another NBA entry. I’ll get to the T-wolves later but first how could I ignore the two up and coming big names in the NBA? point guard on the Knicks that’s been getting all this attention? I was originally going to write on both Jeremy Lin and Andre Iguodala but I’ll give Andre his own blog entry. Don’t want to crowd the spotlight.

Who is Jeremy Lin? And did he just pop up out of the blue?

Not really…he’s been working his ass off to get to where he is today.

So who is this overnight star? Lin is the first American NBA player who is of Chinese and/or Taiwanese descent. (Yao Ming doesn’t count because he was not born in the US, but don’t worry Yao we’ll never be able to replace you!) And he’s a Harvard Graduate, nonetheless. Which would make him the #4th Harvard Graduate/attendee to go into the NBA (I might be missing some people who changed colleges in between). The first would be Wyndol Gray who ended up playing the Celtics and the Providence Steamrollers, second would be Saul Mariaschin who also played for the Celtics and third would be Ed Smith who also played for the Knicks but this was back in the 1950s so  no one in over 50 years has chosen the path Jeremy Lin has. But things haven’t come easy to Lin who was not offered any type of scholarship or job during his college years. He was even undrafted after college so he came to a deal with the Golden State Warriors for a contract. It WAS his home town after all. He wanted to go to UCLA but the PAC 10 wouldn’t accept him but Brown and Harvard would so he decided on Harvard. (Too bad they don’t give scholarships at Ivy Leagues). Yeah…I’d feel stupid if I were all of those colleges who told him to get lost. Like when Warren Buffet didn’t get accepted into Harvard Business School. WTF was up with that right? So how did Lin get from Harvard to the New York Knicks? So he played with the GSWs even though he got other offers, it was his favorite team growing up and when the lockout happened the GSW’s waived him so they could free cap to get DeAndre Jordan (who is on the Clippers now not the GSWs) then he got to the Rockets who also waived him to get some Samuel Dalembert so he ended up on the Knicks. And all this hype started on Feb 4th 2012 when the Knicks beat the Nets. Highest scorer on the Knicks that night and the next night.

25 points, 5 rebounds, 7 assists

And continued with his amazing plays during the next game against the Utah Jazz:

28 points, 8 assists

But what about the other games? Well to be honest, they haven’t played him as much as they had starting Feb 4th during the game against the Nets.

  1. February 3rd, 2012  vs Celtics – 2 rebounds, 1 assist, 2 points ; 06:36min
  2. January 31, 2012 vs Pistons  – 1 rebound, 4 assists, 4 points ; 06:07min
  3. January 28, 2012 vs Rockets – 3 rebounds, 6 assists, 9 points ; 20:10min
  4. January 24, 2012 vs Bobcats – 2 rebounds, 4 assists, 8 points ; 5:54min
  5. January 14, 2012 vs Thunder – 1 rebound, 1 assist, 3 points ; 4:41min
  6. January 07, 2012 vs Pistons – 4 points ; 4:00min
  7. December 31, 2012 vs Kings – 1 rebound, 1 assist ; 3:51min
  8. December 29, 2012 vs Lakers – 2 points ; 1:40min
  9. December 28, 2012 vs Golden State Warriors – 1:27min
  10. December 21, 2012 Preseason vs Spurs – 1 rebound, 1 assist, 6 points ; 05:45min
  11. December 17, 2012 Preseason vs Spurs – 02:06min
They just needed to give him a chance to prove himself. And he did it. Hopefully we’ll see the Knicks using Lin more and more and hopefully as a starter. Can’t you see it? A Carmelo-Amare-Jeremy love sandwich? I can. I was waiting for the Knicks to step up their game this year and maybe this was JUST the kick that they needed to get their asses back in shape. We can never have too many awesome Point Guards! I do love Mike Bibby though…we’ll make it work!
