The New Jersey Nets, like the Knicks, were players during this off-season’s fiasco. With Russian billionaire Mikhail Prokhorov purchasing the majority of the team, the Nets’ had limitless funds at their disposal and a banner with the most unusual pairing of Prokhorov and rapped Jay-Z hanging across the street from Madison Square Garden. They [...]
The New York Knicks waited, waited and waited some more. They went through three years of treacherous basketball, excusing it to an extent, because they had faith that LeBron James would ditch the Cleveland Cavaliers this off-season and make Madison Square Garden his new home. And after all those years of pitiful basketball, the Knicks were [...]
The Boston Celtics played a joke on everybody in the NBA last season. While the Cleveland Cavaliers were taking the regular season win crown, the Orlando Magic were securing the two seed and everybody was questioning whether or not the C’s were going to make it past their first round series, Boston was coasting [...]
