Leave a comment

Whew. What a long weekend?

Of course, you may have guessed, the weekend in question was the 2014 NBA All-Star Weekend which culminated in a record breaking, high scoring game Sunday night.

Monday afternoon, a day after competing in the East’s 163-155 victory over the West in the All-Star Game, Miami Heat forward LeBron James took to social media to reminisce on how quickly time has flown by since he, teammate Dwyane Wade and New York Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony came into the National Basketball Association.

Tweet of the Day: Festus Ezeli

1 Comment

festus-ezeliTwo days removed from a last-second Wednesday night loss to the Miami Heat, Golden State Warriors center Festus Ezeli, like many other NBA athletes, decided to use the All-Star break to travel.

His flight, however, may have had some unnecessary stress due to the pilot’s lack of tact.

Some time prior to takeoff, the pilot addressed the passengers over the intercom and revealed some rather unsettling news while expressing his expectation to arrive at their destination faster than the time that they were scheduled for.

A first-time commercial airline pilot, nothing new there. All pilots have to start somewhere or else they’d never get experience. However, announcing one’s inexperience whilst suggesting that said lack of experience will equate to a faster flight is definitely lacking in tact.

As can be noted by Ezeli’s reaction, it should be expected that such a revelation would leave passengers a little unsettled.

Scotto: Midseason Report Cards for Knicks and Nets

knicks-vs-brooklyn-nets-at-barclays-centerBefore the season, championship expectations were attached to both the Knicks and the Nets.

The Knicks were coming off the team’s first season with at least 50 or more wins and a trip to the Eastern Conference semifinals since the 1999-2000 campaign, when Jeff Van Gundy patrolled the sidelines, Patrick Ewing wrapped up his final season in New York and Allan Houston was in the prime of his career.

The Nets were coming off their first trip to the playoffs in six years and considered the winners of the offseason after landing future Hall of Famers Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce, along with Jason Terry, in a blockbuster trade with the Celtics.

However, neither team has lived up to the hype with the All-Star break now upon us.

With that in mind, it’s time to break down the season into four sections for both teams: The Good, The Bad, The Ugly and The Future.

AnthonyDavisSH1Only a week out from All-Star Weekend in New Orleans beginning on February 14th, there has been one looming question heading in: who will replace Kobe Bryant on the Western Conference roster?

New NBA commissioner, Adam Silver, answered that question today. To nobody’s surprise he picked the hometown favorite, and well deserving Anthony Davis of the New Orleans Pelicans. More from USA Today’s Sam Amick
