The Knicks are dominating the headlines like few 14th-place teams could.
Remember that streak of games hot-shooting LeBron James put together last February? Well, he’s doing it again. Much earlier in the season. And for a longer stretch. And if he keeps it up, it will become historic. Because since the ABA-NBA merger, no wing player or point guard has scored this much while shooting this well. Not Dr. J. Not even Michael Jordan. Yes, really. Through the first month of the season, James is third in the league in scoring at 26.2 points per
For the second straight season the Chicago Bulls, from the players all the way up to the front office, will be tested by the loss of Derrick Rose for the remainder of the season. Last season the Bulls could see the light at the end of the tunnel, but this season?

Every time I turn on League Pass, I’m reminded that one of the most explosive and entertaining players of this era is gone, and his career is probably never going to be the same.

Monday was a happy day for some, ominous for many others. Some big news broke early in the day about the status of Derrick Rose and Kobe Bryant.

And one thing I have learned is that with just four hours of weekly practice time followed by four games every weekend, if you don’t have definitive, well-drilled schemes on both offense and defense, you have no chance to compete. However, if you have a group that is committed to a
Life without Derrick Rose isn’t necessarily bad for everybody. And while the Bulls have proven they can make noise without their All-Star point guard, the Los Angeles Clippers may have caught them at the best possible time: the first game after Rose was diagnoses with a torn meniscus.
What’s going on? Are the Nets really this bad? They lost to the Pistons (who have also started a bit sluggishly) today. And that was with Joe Johnson going bonkers from deep. Also losing today were the Jazz. They’re really this bad. Not as bad as that time in the video game when I traded all their players away for draft picks and had Jason Kapono and Brian Scalabrine in the starting lineup, but pretty bad.
