EndScore Report: The New York Knicks and Above-.500 Dream

Posted by Dennis Velasco Categories: Injuries, Kudos, NBA, Trades,

EndScore Report: The New York Knicks and Above-.500 DreamDV and Chris speak on the New York Knicks and the team's ability to finish the NBA season with an above-.500 regular season record. The Knicks are on track to make it happen with a 40-38 record currently and only four games left. Two winnable games against the New Jersey Nets and Indiana Pacers will seal the deal and it won't matter what the outcome would be versus the Chicago Bulls and Boston Celtics to close out the season. The dream can happen!

However, while Carmelo Anthony was a significant acquisition for the Knicks, it's hard to ignore the Denver Nuggets who have basically been on a tear since Melo was traded. The Nuggets are currently 48-30 and have a chance to win 50 games, if not more. The above-.500 dream has at least become a reality for one team. Fulfill our dreams and give our thoughts on the Knicks and Nuggets a listen!

EndScore Report: Carmelo Anthony trade to the New York Knicks review

Posted by Dennis Velasco Categories: Athletes, Editorial, NBA, Trades,

Carmelo Anthony trade to the New York Knicks reviewDV and Chris take a look at the Carmelo Anthony trade to the New York Knicks and how it's panned out thus far. The Knicks are now 7-6 since the trade (NOTE: this podcast was recorded before the Knicks win versus the Memphis Grizzlies), while the Denver Nuggets are 9-2. DV argues that the Knicks gave up too much in Raymond Felton, Danilo Gallinari, Wilson Chandler, and the prospect of Timofey Mozgov and while Chris agrees, to get a “superstar” like Anthony was or will be worth the price in order to possibly (hopefully) get another big name star and form the trendy Big Three of star NBA players ala the Miami Heat with LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, and Chris Bosh. Either way, the one thing both DV and Chris can agree on is that the Knicks won't go far without playing defense. Download and listen here!

Deron Williams traded to the New Jersey Nets

Posted by Dennis Velasco Categories: Athletes, NBA, News, Trades,

Deron Williams is traded to the New Jersey NetsThe New Jersey Nets pulled off a coup by trading for Deron Williams of the Utah Jazz for Devin Harris, Derrick Favors, and two first round draft picks. The picks are the Nets' 2011 first round pick and the Golden State Warrior's 2012 first round pick, which the Nets received in the Marcus Williams trade. After a seven-month long serenade of Carmelo Anthony and ultimately failing, the Nets acted quickly in acquiring Williams, the superstar they hope to be the face of the franchise as they move into the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. The hope is that Williams' presence will help lure other superstar free agents, particularly Dwight Howard of the Orlando Magic who can opt out of his contract after the 2011-12 season. The Nets hope that Williams is only the first step in many to come.

Carmelo Anthony could be joining the New York Knicks soonOnce again the Carmelo Anthony saga has risen to epic proportions in regards to where he will end up playing. New York Knicks? New Jersey Nets? Los Angeles Lakers? Maybe even stay put with the Denver Nuggets? One thing is for sure, everyone is getting tired with the speculation. Reportedly, the Nets and Nuggets have started negotiating once again, about a month after Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov said that the Nets would no longer pursue Anthony. Well, never say never. Chris Sheridan looks at four factors heading into any trade involving the scoring machine and thinks the Knicks will pay the price.

Carmelo Anthony trade to the New Jersey Nets imminent?

Posted by Dennis Velasco Categories: Athletes, NBA, Trades,

Carmelo Anthony waiting to be tradedThe Carmelo Anthony trade rumors have been persistent for months with the New Jersey Nets being the most connected team to Melo. The Denver Nuggets and Nets have recruited other teams previously, which didn't work, although this time, a deal that happens with the Detroit Pistons might make a trade work. If it does, the current trade proposal would be the largest in NBA history. However, will all of the particulars work out? If you're the Nets, do you really want to make this trade, which basically deals away any youth and future (aside from Anthony) from the franchise? Talks are still ongoing, but things seem imminent. Get ready to buy a Nets jersey with the number 15.

Carmelo Anthony to the New Jersey Nets?

Posted by Dennis Velasco Categories: Athletes, NBA, News, Trades,

Carmelo Anthony versus the New Jersey Nets

Carmelo Anthony may soon be joining the New Jersey Nets if he agrees to sign a contract extension, therefore leaving the Denver Nuggets, a team he’s played for for seven seasons.  The trade includes the Utah Jazz and Charlotte Bobcats as well with the primary players being moved being Andrei Kirilenko and Derrick Favors to the Nuggets and Devin Harris to the Bobcats.  Rumors have the Nuggets holding out, hoping for a better deal, but considering they’re not in a position to rescind trades since Anthony will most assuredly leave the team after the season at the latest, expect the only hold-up being Anthony agreeing to an extension with the Nets.

LeBron James joins Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh to play with the Miami Heat

LeBron James chooses the Miami Heat

LeBron James has decided to join his Team USA and fellow 2003 NBA draftees, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh, down in South Beach to play with the Miami Heat.  The trio of perennial NBA All-Stars will look to win what only Wade has, an NBA title ring, for the next five years at the very least.  James, after much speculation that had him going to the Chicago Bulls, New York Knicks, New Jersey Nets, and staying with the Cleveland Cavaliers, made his choice known on ESPN Thursday night in a program called, The Decision.  It’s generally thought that the execution of LeBron’s selection was poor in taste as it just fed more into the hype that most people were already sick of anyway.  However, there is no questioning LeBron’s appeal and general curiosity about where he would play.  Rest easy, it’s the Heat.

LeBron James tells CNN that the Cleveland Cavaliers have the edge

Posted by Dennis Velasco Categories: Athletes, Front Office, NBA, Rumors,

LeBron James

Well, take heart Cleveland Cavaliers fans, LeBron James has finally spoken about his upcoming NBA free agency and the incumbent team has the edge to re-sign The King.  James spoke with CNN’s Larry King on Tuesday for an interview to appear on Friday, saying, “... you know, this city, these fans, I mean, have given me a lot in these seven years. And, you know, for me, it’s comfortable. So I’ve got a lot of memories here. And—and so it does have an edge.”  This may dampen the spirits of the New York Knicks who have laid it all on the line, suffering through two bad and almost wasted seasons under the current regime of Donnie Walsh and Mike D’Antoni.  The Knicks have purposely traded assets to get under the NBA salary cap in order to sign LeBron and one of the other big NBA free agents - Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh, Joe Johnson amongst others.  If James does in fact sign with Cleveland, many teams such as the Chicago Bulls and New Jersey Nets, teams with legitimate shots to sign LeBron will need to move on.  For the Knicks, however, how would they?

2010 NBA Mock Draft December Version

Posted by Phil Partington Categories: Fantasy, NBA, NCAA, College Basketball,

John WallJune is the month for the NBA Draft, when fans and experts alike chart players and teams to determine which future prospect will be taken by which team. The process is both exciting and captivating, as it hints at the future of many NBA ball clubs. Yet, NBA Draft buzz doesn’t start in June. Even though the college basketball season is just underway, murmurings of where players might go in the 2010 NBA Draft have already surfaced. Here’s an early look at how the draft might shape up.

1.  New Jersey Nets select PG John Wall, Kentucky, 6-4, 195lbs
Wall is the consensus top pick at this point. Wall has great size and athleticism for a point guard. After six games, he’s averaging 18.5 ppg, 7.8 apg, 4.0 rpg, 2.5 spg, while shooting 56% from the field and 80% from the line. He somewhat resembles Derrick Rose. Though the Nets have Devin Harris, it’s hard to imagine them passing on a potential superstar like Wall.
