A few weeks back, Phil Jackson set twitter off when he compared Steph Curry to former point guard Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf (aka Chris Jackson). If you took a moment to think and not react, you knew he wasn’t necessarily comparing skill sets but as you know, most people only saw what they saw and went off. In light of the Warriors recent matchup with Phil’s Knicks, Steph was asked what he thought about the comment.
Carmelo Anthony decided to stay with the Knicks and take the free agent money before the start of last season and most folks assumed at some point he would regret it. The team didn’t look good and the future didn’t look much brighter but he decided to be “loyal” and stay. What has followed has been the worst season in franchise history last year and another crap display this season. Sure they drafted Porzingis to give some hope moving forward but Melo sounds like the losing is wearing thin on him after speaking with reporters following a discussion with Phil Jackson.

Robert Horry managed to get himself more championship rings than Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant, Tim Duncan and a ton of other greats. He has seven rings to brag about, although you can argue he didn’t play much of a role in a couple of them but either way, so what? When you win that many titles that means you played with some great players and he damn sure did. He won rings with Olajuwon, Kobe & Duncan but when it comes to the last two guys, he seems to have a favorite.
On the same day Matt Barnes tried to fight John Henson from the Bucks, another player he tried to fight wasn’t having a care in the world while taking pictures with Barnes ex, Gloria Govan. Her and Derek Fisher had no issue being in public together and showing lots of PDA while being out and about in Los Angeles yesterday. Since Fisher was fired by the Knicks he has more free time to spend with her while simultaneously keeping his head on a swivel looking for Barnes. Check the gallery!
The sporting world is changing and some people are ahead of the curve. Sports are no longer restricted to physical play on a field or court somewhere. They have now expanded into the living room and to be more specific, into our televisions via “Esports”. There is some serious money involved believe it or not and two superstars in the sporting world themselves wanted to make sure they were involved.
According to Broncos safety T.J. Ward, one of his fellow Broncos teammates on the defensive side of the ball went Mike Tyson on Tom Brady the last time the Broncos and Patriots played. Ward was on ESPN’s “Highly Questionable” yesterday when he dropped the gem about defensive end, Derek Wolfe.
