As most of you know, Carmelo Anthony is a Syracuse Alum. In this year’s NCAA Tournament, Syracuse has met up with Indiana, Mike Woodson’s alma mata, and Marquette, Steve Novak’s. Syracuse beat both teams, but before each matchup, Melo made some friendly wagers with the two. The losing team’s alumni had to dress up in the winning team’s clothing.
No word what Mike Woodson has done, but, after Syracuse’s win over Marquette, look what Steve Novak had to wear on today’s plan to Miami:
Via our friends at Posting and Toasting, we have footage of Steve Novak putting back Marcus Camby’s miss in last night’s shoot around. GET UP, STEVE!
Last night, Nate Robinson did the Steve Novak Discount Double-Check after pulling up on Steve Novak, as well as a few other times throughout the evening. After the game, Tina Cervasio asked Novak for his thoughts on Robinson’s mocking of him, and, well, Novak fired some shots of his own. Take a listen.
You may already be aware of this but the Knicks attempt a lot of 3-pointers. They also make a lot of 3-pointers. This inevitably leads to the discussion, similar to the Yankees “relying too heavily on the home run,” that the Knicks “live and die” by the 3-ball and that this style of play will hurt them in the playoffs.
Well, that was some pre-season basketball! There were line-up experiments, rotation experiments, play-calling experiments, the usual funky shots that missed rim completely, shots that hit every part of the rim, shots that slammed off the backboard, mishandled passes, dribbles off feet and knees – all things typical of pre-season.
