Well, Iman Shumpert is pretty serious about this whole rapping thing, so I thought I’d share one of his latest tracks. Unlike some rapping NBA players, I’d say Shump actually has some skills. Thoughts?
Double Scribble has been doing some tremendous work. I put their Olympic illustration of Carmelo Anthony and Tyson Chandler together into a wallpaper for your computer and/or iPhone!

According to David Aldridge, the New York Knicks have come to terms on a one-year deal with free-agent shooting guard Ronnie Brewer. Brewer has spent his past two years in Chicago and he averaged 6.9 points, 2.1 assists and 3.5 rebounds a game last year, while playing 24.8 minutes a game.
It’s been rumored since last year that the New York Knicks will receive some new jerseys, where they ditch “black and go to a very simple design”, but an official jersey change has yet to be confirmed. It looks like it’s all but a done deal, though:
According to the Sun Sentinel, the Miami Heat’s first road game will be on Friday, November 2nd, when they will face off against the New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden. While the official, full NBA schedule has yet to be released, it’s likely this will be the Knicks’ home opener.
Understandably lost in the Jeremy Lin buzz last week was the fact that the Knicks quietly let Landry Fields walk to the Toronto Raptors. Though it didn’t cause nearly as much controversy as the Lin decision (Lindecision!) – the Knicks weren’t expected to match Fields’s three-year/$18-million offer sheet – it was yet another example of the Knicks failing to retain young, home-grown talent.
Basically, there are two reports right now. In the first report, Raymond Felton will make ~$10 million over three-years, and in the second report, he will made ~$14 million over four-years. The actually contract numbers have yet to surface, but I’ll outline how each offer comes to fruition.
Great work, @Pavvy8.
Pablo Torre of Sports Illustrated has the first one-on-one with Jeremy Lin. From it. we learn that Lin’s top choice was New York, he was told not to rush back for the playoffs. I’m going to post some tidbits from the article, but be sure to read it in full here.
It’s official. The Knicks did not match Jeremy Lin’s offer-sheet, letting him to be signed to the Houston Rockets for $25.1 million over three-years.
Letting Lin leave for the Rockets could be a colossal mistake, or it could be financially savvy move that has little bearing on the team’s ultimate success. Nobody really knows, which only adds more confusion and heat to the debate. Lin could be the player that showed All-Star potential last February, he could be an above-average to average point guard like he showed in March, or he could end up a below average player.
Jimmy Guitar has done it again. James Dolan has yet again picked up his favorite instrument and produced another unbearable sound. But this time, it isn’t with his favorite music instrument (although, by judging from reviews, he’s not any better at that either). This sound is the one of Knicks fans all over New York City (at least the intelligent ones), lamenting yet another incredibly stupid decision by this human who masks himself as owner of a professional basketball team.
Well, I was in the middle of writing a post outlining some more reasons why the Knicks should keep Jeremy Lin, but Howard Beck just broke the news: Jeremy Lin will NOT be matched by the New York Knicks.
