SH Blog: Jackson will meet with Kerr next week, Big O thinks Anthony should leave town and go to Houston

Phil Jackson

By now, we all know that Phil Jackson is looking to make some major changes within the New York Knicks organization. He has fired Mike Woodson and his coaching staff, is making internal changes (or at least trying to do so with some resistance from Jim Dolan), has already stated that he will move forward with or without Carmelo Anthony, and will soon hire a new coach. Whether he’s doing everything correctly remains to be seen, but at the very least,

“That’s my go-to move, the step back. I’m not going to air ball that.” That’s what Stephen Curry had to say about the final shot he took – the shot that was about a foot short from the rim – against the Los Angeles Clippers in a 98-96 loss in Game 3 of the first round of the playoffs. With time winding down and the Golden State Warriors desperately trying to get back into the game, Curry took over in the final

SH Blog: Durant defiant about Tony Allen’s defense, Parsons says he’s better than Batum

KevinDurantSH1

Kevin Durant has had one of the most prolific seasons we have ever seen, and he will run away with the  MVP award for his efforts in 2014. Part of what has made him so great is the efficient way in which he has totally dominated the competition. He averaged a whopping 32 points on 50.3 percent shooting from the field. His true shooting percentage (including field goal, 3-pointers and free throws) came out to 63.5 percent, which is truly ridiculous. When

Tracy McGrady has moved on from his basketball career and is now venturing into a new phase of his life. That doesn’t mean he’s not paying attention to what’s going on in the NBA, though, and he has certainly taken notice of the play of LaMarcus Aldridge in the first round of the playoffs against McGrady’s former team. In the first two games against the Houston Rockets, LaMarcus Aldridge is averaging a blistering 44.5 points on 57.6 percent shooting from the field.

SH Blog: Kerr says writing was on the wall for Woodson, Parker received silent treatment from Duncan in rookie year

With the news that Mike Woodson and his entire staff have officially been fired by the New York Knicks, it’s natural to wonder what’s next for the team. The best candidate to take over as the new head coach appears to be Steve Kerr, who has been rumored as the favorite ever since Phil Jackson took over the front office. Given Kerr’s knowledge of the Triangle offense and his relationship with Jackson, it’s quite understandable. Kerr wouldn’t say much about the

NBA players go nuts after Kevin Durant hit the most amazing shot of the year

KevinDurantSH1

The Oklahoma City Thunder lost to the Memphis Grizzlies 111-105 in overtime in Game 2 of the first round of the playoffs, but they only managed to get that far because of Kevin Durant, who hit the most ridiculous shot of the year in the fourth quarter. With 13.3 seconds left in regulation and down 98-93, Durant found himself in the corner to catch a pass from Russell Westbrook. With Marc Gasol draped all over him, Durant lost balance and was
