1793287831

While Knicks president Phil Jackson spent Monday night finalizing a three-team deal that he hopes will make Madison Square Garden relevant again, across the East River, Mavericks guard Rajon Rondo was helping Dallas beat Brooklyn with one of his patented double-doubles. You know, the one that doesn’t require points. Jackson has the woeful Knicks going all in on free agency, creating enough cap space to possibly lure two stars to the World’s Most Famous Arena. The main targets are obvious – Marc Gasol,

Sheridan: Who will the All-Star Reserves Be in West?

All-StarNYC

New Year’s Day brought the latest round of All-Star balloting returns, and it’s a safe bet that the five leading vote-getters in each conference will remain there.

In the West frontcourt, Anthony Davis is a shoo-in, with Blake Griffin and Marc Gasol second and third, and Tim Duncan trailing Gasol by 55,000 votes. In the East, John Wall and Dwyane Wade are No. 1

SH Blog: Carmelo Anthony explains why he passed on Chicago, Kobe Bryant says him having no patience is a misunderstanding

Carmelo Anthony

Remember that time in the summer when Carmelo Anthony had the chance to join a team that was basically tailor-made for him? Hint: it’s not the floundering team he’s with right now. The answer: it was the Chicago Bulls, and they wanted the small forward badly to potentially create one of the most devastating teams in the entire NBA. Unfortunately, they couldn’t pay him the money necessary to bring him in (technically, no one could except you know who), and Anthony ultimately
