Starting Lineups: Joakim Noah Is The Best Center In The NBA (And It’s Not Even Close)

It’s been stated on this very site that the elite big men in the NBA have gone missing, but I think it’s time to re-examine that issue. Are the days of big men getting 30 points and 15 rebounds on a nightly basis gone forever? Probably, but the game has also evolved a bit, and big men are...

QOTD: Why Should Carmelo Anthony Stay In New York?

The majority of this NBA season I have been sitting from afar, watching, listening and taking in criticism of my New York Knickerbockers from the adamantium bleachers.

For The Love Of Basketball And Why This NBA Season Matters

With the return of a new NBA season, love is in the air. Even if said love brings its fair share of frustrations, heartaches and hurdles. The love of basketball is just like any other abnormal relationship. Because as we all know, a “normal relationship” is the greatest oxymoron ever written. I’ve spoken...

Frustrations, Revelations And Reflections Of A Sports Fan

It’s been a while since I have put ink to paper to pound out my thoughts on sports of any kind. In all honesty, I was starting to give up hope on sports in general as the recycling of coaches and players in a system of ineptitude continued to evolve. Reaching my apocalyptic state on the world of sports...

The Ebbs And Flows Of Knicks Fandom

By Johnathan Tillman / @thetillshow (I began this immediately after Game 6.) I am a 49ers fan. I watched that team lose painfully in consecutive years, within reach of the Lombardi Trophy. I saw them lose and did not watch a sports broadcast for days. I say all that to say this: I have never felt like...

Book Review: ‘Earl the Pearl: My Story’

For so many players in the past 30-plus years, he was the father to their styles. He brought the improvised creativity from the South Philadelphia playgrounds to the rigidity of the college and pro game. He was part of the “Rolls Royce backcourt” that was known for its flair on the hardwood and...

The Liberation Of Earl Smith III

J.R. Smith, the newly crowned Sixth Man of the Year, is on the postseason scene for all to see. There are people who have thrown shade his way, people who have come for my head for my disgust with the Eastern Conference coaches for leaving him off of the All-Star roster, and people who had once labeled...

Stephen Curry Visits New York City, Decides To Check Out Studio 54

I’ve always had an appreciation for Stephen Curry. Ever since his days as a Davidson Wildcat, where he acted the part of David and took out his mighty 3-point slingshot to slay college basketball’s giants, I made it a point to make sure to keep tabs on what’s going on with the fair-skinned...

Credit Mike Woodson For The Resurgence of Amar’e Stoudemire

A year ago, the New York Knicks were the most confusing team in the NBA. Sure, if you haven’t heard by now, Linsanity began in earnest a year ago this past Monday against the former New Jersey Nets. Yet despite the team’s improved fortunes with Jeremy Lin running the point, a few weeks later, Mike...

East Coast vs. West Coast Beef, NBA Edition

A few weeks ago, I began tweeting about the dynamic in Los Angeles with the Lakers struggling and the Clippers playing the best basketball that franchise has ever seen.
