Letter to the Commissioner: Dear David Stern

Dear Mr.David Stern,

           I come to you as a fan of the game, an avid viewer of the regular season and playoffs and we have beef. It is only approaching the second games in the first round of the 2011 playoffs and I am going to need you to do something about these refs. If this continues, we will have major problems sir. The horrible calls that have been called in such close games have made me question the validity of the outcome and if you have something to do with it.

The game came down to the final seconds where with just 21 seconds remaining and the Celtics down by 1, Jesus Shuttlesworth  Ray Allen pulled up with a 3 that went in to bring the lead to 2. Continue reading Video:Ray "Shuttlesworth" Allen Hits the Game Winning Shot Against the Knicks

Back as the King of NY

After a long,drawn out ordeal of the future of Syracuse Alumni Carmelo Anthony and where his future would take him, he decided to go back to where it all started–The Big Apple. With the mid season trade that transformed Knicks as a true playoff contender–although I preferred and enjoyed watching the talented Raymond Felton and Wilson Chandler in Blue and Orange– the Knicks have added to the competition and toughness of Eastern Conference.
